Lyrics from ‘SHOCKWAVES

Ships on the Shoreline

Someone to tell me that I’m not alone
I need someone to pick up, to answer the phone
Is it all that you wanted or all that you need
With someone beside you, your suddenly free

Cos I’ve always loved you, and I always will

Ships on the shoreline are sailing away
I wish I had more time, more words to say

And who am I kidding, I’m back in a bar..
The ships on the shoreline mix into the stars
I don’t know where I’m going or what I will be
But I care how the light is reflecting on me

Cos I’ve always loved you, and I always will

Ships on the shoreline are sailing away
I wish I had more time, more words to say

But I’ll be right as rain
(oooohhhh)
Ships on the shoreline are sailing away
Oh oh oh oh, sailing away
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh

Ships on the shoreline are sailing away
I wish I had more time, more words to say

But I’ll be right as rain

Lyrics from ‘Sugar & Spite’
Birds and the Bees
The Hit Parade
One By One
Better Off
Put A Record On
Hold it Down
This Way
Vagabond
Too Many People
Swans
What Do I Know
Birds and the Bees
I drive on the streets cos I’m so incomplete,
and she’s always on my mind.
Or is it a ‘she’ that you just want to be with,
cos I’m on the line alright.

Love hurts my friend,
love hurts…
In the end, in the end
In the end, in the end

Oh let me tell you about the birds and the bees- the nice and the sleazy,
I don’t even know her name.
Or do you belong in a four-minute love song,
that nobody can explain.

Love hurts my friend,
love hurts…
In the end, in the end
In the end, in the end

And my mother told me ‘son, you’re just like your dad’,
some little piece of LOVE that they had,
That they had
That they had
That they had
That they had

Loving me, loving you
Loving me, loving you
Loving me, loving you
Loving me, loving you

The Hit Parade
I don’t believe all that you said was yesterday,
i’ll let you know, I’ll let you know I feel the weight.
I Wish you were mine, wish you were mine,
wish you were mine, wish you were mine
And all that that goes with…

and time brings me home.
Time brings me home.

Just say that you want me.
Just say that you want me.

I wish you were mine, wish you were mine
wish you were mine, wish you were mine
And all that that goes with…

and time brings me home,
and i’ll turn you ON…

Pushing on through all i wanna do is get over you.
Pushing on through all i wanna do is get over you.
I wanna get laid, I wanna get played,
I wanna walk down the Hit Parade…

Just say that you want me
Just say that you want me

Ohh, pushing on through all i wanna do is get over you.
Pushing on through all i wanna do is get over you.
I wanna get laid, I wanna get played,
I wanna walk down the Hit Parade…

Just say that you want me
Just say that you want me

Ohh, just say that you want me.
Just say that you want me.

and I don’t believe all that you said was yesterday

I wish you were mine wish you were mine,
wish you were mine wish you were mine
and all that that goes with…

One By One
One by One
I suffer you gladly
One by One
You’re all I don’t need

And you couldn’t see,
the wood for the tree
You’re eyes are unkind,
so don’t look at me,
And all that you know,
Is written in stone.

One by One
I suffer you badly,
One by One
You’re all I don’t need

And life on the road,
it makes you feel old,
Remember the time when friends were around,
when friends were around – when we were all friends…

Is this the way to be?
Is this the way to be?

One by One
One by One

Better Off
Cool off your jets,
no more regrets.
I don’t believe in you.
Cos I’m better off, I’m better off… alone.

And I can’t believe,
All that I see.
Did you go down on him?
Are you getting off? are you getting off?… my friend.

I’m living for no-one…
I’m living for no-one…
I’m living for no-one…
I’m living for no-one…

Is this the way,
you people play?
I can’t believe its true.
Cos I’m better off, I’m better off… alone.

I’m living for no-one…
I’m living for no-one…
I’m living for no-one…
I’m living for no-one…

Ahhhhhhh,
Ahhhhhhh,

Put A Record On
I put a record on, put it on and sing along with you,
sing along with you.
And that’s ok by me, that’s ok cos in a way I’m free
in a way I am free,

And you don’t have to sympathise,
I will try, and dry my eyes

And I’m ok for drinking, grab a beer and disappear with me
disappear with me,

And you don’t, you don’t have to sympathise,
I will try, to dry my eyes

I put a record on, put it on and get it on with you,
Get it on with you…

And this time, you’ll find,
some other gonna mess your mind.
Its too late, or too soon,
some other gonna come… come… too soon

Put it on.
And I will try and dry my eyes
Put it on.
Or am I something you despise
Put it on.
And I will try to dry my eyes my love

I put a record on…
I put a record on…
I put a record on…on… too soon

Put it on.
And I will try and dry my eyes
Put it on.
Or am I something you despise
Put it on.
And I will try to dry my eyes my love.

Hold It Down
Hold it down boy, don’t lose your head,
you’re so inviting, and I’m easily led.
Leave a message, cos you’re not there,
i’ll be tired and low, tired and low

And I wish I could see you, across over seas,
and I wish I could be with you, but I’ll always believe…

…I gotta hold it down, don’t let it show,
hold it down, so you don’t know.
And I know, you’re letting go,
but this is good advice, good advice

And I wish I could see you, across over seas,
and I wish I could be with you, but I’ll always believe…

… I gotta hold it down, don’t let it show,
hold it down, so you don’t know.
And I know, you’re letting go,
But this is good advice, good advice

And I wish I could see you, across over seas
And I wish I could be with you, but I’ll always believe
And I wish I could see you, across over seas
And I wish I could be with you but, there’s so much I’d do
Ahhhhhhhh, ahhhhhhhh

But you’re so far away.

This Way
Never to go where the wind don’t blow.
Always to say you will find your way.
Always to be, kicking around with the wind and breeze.

So kiss me again in the moonlight lady,
cos you might just set me free.
I was the one with your father when he,
when he told me it would be… this way.

And I know, I can’t shake the memory,
and I know, I can’t shake the memory.

Never to go where the wind don’t blow.
Always to say you will find your way.
Always to be, kicking around with the wind and breeze.

So kiss me again in the moonlight lady,
cos you might just set me free.
I was the one with your father when he,
when he told me it would be… this way.

And I know, I can’t shake the memory,
and I know, I can’t shake the memory.

Vagabond
Gonna live like a junkie, climb on your back.
Gonna sail away, and not come back.
Do this, do that.
I’m not scared, I’m not…

Gonna pull any punches, fade to black
Gonna look in the mirror, we don’t do that

We don’t do that

And I can see just what you’re made of, sugar and spite.
All the things that you craved of, they’re not quite right.
I guess, I digress.
I’m not scared, I’m not…

Gonna pull any punches, fade to black
Gonna look in the mirror, we don’t do that

We don’t do that… for what its worth.

And ahhhhh you make it feel better, but I don’t need it. And ahhhhh you make it feel better but I don’t need it anymore

Under blue skies, we don’t do that,
Under blue skies, we don’t do that,
Under blue skies.

Too Many People
I sit here playing while you sweep the dirt off the floor,
it’s not right.
No-one is saying that you haven’t heard this before,
but I like.

And I’m sorry, if I ever did you harm.
But I missed you, I’ve got a working broken heart.

Too many people, spend all there time alone.
Too many people, never know when to go home,
and if there’s time we’ll run away…

I don’t know why you’ve got love in your eyes,
when you just wanna start a fight.
Someone is saying this war we are waging,
just doesn’t feel right…

Yeah, too many people, spend all there time alone.
Too many people, never know when to go home,
and if there’s time we’ll run away…

Same old, same old, same old
Same old, same old, same old

The days go by…
And all I try to be… (is me)

Yeah, too many people, spend all there time alone.
Too many people, never know when to go home,
and if there’s time we’ll run away…

Swans
By my side,
you’ll never be.
By my side,
you’ll never be.

Cos I’m fake at the seams,
I’m lost in my dreams.
I want you to know,
that I can’t let you go.

And you’re never coming home again,
And you’re never coming home again.

By my side,
you’ll never be.
By my side,
you’ll never be.

I wanted to tell you I’d changed.
I wanted to tell you that things would be different this time.

But I see you, you see me,
Differently.
I see you, you see me,
Differently.

You tell me that you love me but you never want to see me again.
You tell me that you love me but you never want to see me again.
You tell me that you love me but you never want to see me again.
You tell me that you love me but you never want to see me again.

What Do I know
Sit here waiting by the bathroom door,
hoping I might see a little more.
Sick of love stains on my sheets,
sick of lifestyles I don’t wanna keep.

Look in my minds eye,
oh look into my minds eye…

What do I know,
and you,
what do I know

And I don’t know if I’m wrong or right,
and I don’t know where I’ll sleep tonight.
Sick of love stains on my sheets,
sick of lifestyles I don’t wanna keep

Look in my minds eye,
oh look into my minds eye…

What do I know,
and you,
what do I know

Winter came today,
and took the sun away.
What do I know.

And who are you to be,
it’s all the same to me.
What do I know, what do I know…

And I can’t tell you anything,
I can’t tell you anything,
I can’t tell you anything,
I can’t tell you anything…

About a boy.
