Well my name it means nothing, my age it means less

In the age of information 20/20 knows best

But we don’t look back singing old Lang syne

Mixed up words and we’re out of time

And Mother Earth cries with a broken heart

Holding out hope but it’s getting hard

She said I didn’t bring you up this way

where there’s no give, just take take take


Selfies, liberties, Mickey H Mouse,

The walls goes up, the tears fall down

And with the forests gone it’s hard to breathe

They’ll find a way to tell us they were make believe

And then they’ll sell the best seats down on the beach

The final show, one night only

Roll up roll up for this tragedy

The last sunset over the sea

But they’re telling us it’s us, its us and only us

When it all comes down who you think you’re gonna trust


So give me something I can hold on to

A little sign that somethings got to give

Something I can use to get me through

Something I can set my heart on fire with


So when you hear the penny drop in your pounding brain

And the voice in your head’s finally awake

You see it’s never too little and it’s never too late

Start a revolution with the smallest change

The skies are on fire we’re spinning off our axis

The waves are getting higher but they’re raising our taxes

Running of hope running out of time

Time is money and they’re robbing us blind

We are the illness we are the cure

We have something worth fighting for

A ring a ring of roses, a posse full of posers

An eye for the lies because we’ve got one life


Give me something I can hold on to

A little sign that somethings got to give

Something I can use to get me through

Something I can set my heart on fire with


It’s Saturday Night Somewhere

Long live the evening

I don’t need sleep

Small hours have waited

for me all week

It’s time to let go

Finally free 

I’ve been gone

For so long


I hear the drumming 

heart skips a beat

bursting with passion

swept off my feet

I feel the echoes

pour over me

I am where

I belong


You make me feel like it’s Saturday night

Somewhere a city is buzzing with life

Neon is fizzing and flooding the sky 

And it’s all there in your eyes 

And I feel alive


Wake in the morning

Nothing to say

Sleep in the evening 

Still feel the same

I don’t need help I’m just bored and

I’ve heard this before 

I just need more


You make me feel like it’s Saturday night

Somewhere a city is buzzing with life

Neon is fizzing and flooding the sky 

And it’s all there in your eyes 

And I feel alive

  

My head is spinning

I can not see

Give me tomorrow 

I need my sleep

Wrap me in silence 

And darkness to dream 

of tonight,

and I’ll be alright 
I’ll be alright

Trouble


Written by Elliott Morris


Elliott Morris - acoustic guitar, vocals, shruti box


Woke up this morning

Trouble knocking at my door

Woke up this morning

Trouble knocking at my door

No matter what I do

can’t hide here anymore 


Bad luck is falling

Pouring down like rain

Bad luck is falling

Pouring down like rain

No matter what I do

Things won’t be the same I am in

Trouble 


I’m in too deep now

I believe I’m sinking down 

I’m in too deep now

I believe I’m sinking down 


No matter where I go 

Dont feel safe and sound I am in 

Trouble

Trouble 

Trouble

Trouble

Afterglow

A whisper in the air brings with it a plan

I will pack my things for another land

I will trade this place for the colours in the sand

Making my escape the journey takes my hand


Distances unfold

I still know the way

Days will come and go

This coastline stays the same

Time will ebb and flow

The breeze it sings my name

In the afterglow 

I am on my way 

I’m on my way 


I waited on this day, longed for every mile

Now dark is drawing in but I will stay a while 


Distances unfold

I still know the way

Days will come and go

This coastline stays the same

Time will ebb and flow

The breeze still sings my name

In the afterglow 

I am on my way 

I’m on my way 


A whisper in the air brings with it a plan

I will pack my things for another land

Come Back To Me

Now that my love has gone away

It feels like the sun won’t come up again

I’m a fool for letting you down

Now I know I need you around

Come back to me, come back to me


I saw the fire and I saw the rain

I saw the ash, wash down the drain

I’m a fool for letting you down

Now I know I need you around

Come back to me, come back to me


Only the lonely

And only the brave

Left out in the darkness

Know all this pain


All of the words

Are silent again

When I’ve no one to sing them to


If you come back please won’t you stay

I’ve made my mistakes but know that I’ve changed

I’m a fool for letting you down

But darling I need you around

So come back to me

Come back to me

Symphony


Written by Elliott Morris and Jack Shaw

I don’t wanna wake without you

Let me hear your symphony at night 


I don’t wanna wake without you

Let me hear your symphony at night 

You write the notes and I’ll play them for you


Shake me like a midnight rhythm

Play me slow tonight

Kinda low when the bass comes through

I was hoping for a home run

Got me down on one knee

You’re on the big stage now my dear

Playing for keeps but it’s not for me

There’s a line in time and it waits for no one


I don’t wanna wake without you

Let me hear your symphony at night 

You write the notes and I’ll play them for you


I don’t wanna wake without you

Let me hear your symphony at night 

You write the notes and I’ll play them for you


Lights went out and the curtains closed

My mouth was dry and my hands were cold

The spark was fading, my dreams were sold 

‘Cos we did all our talking in bold 


I don’t wanna wake without you

Let me hear your symphony at night 

You write the notes and I’ll play them for you

I’ll play this for you


I don’t wanna wake without you

Let me hear your symphony at night 

You write the notes and I’ll play them for you

I’ll play this for you

What’s For You’ll No Go Past You

You’ve got it sussed

All figured out 

You know the way it goes

Never had a doubt

You’re doing well 

Well on your way

You’re so damn sure

You’re not afraid


And just like that

All those beautiful plans 

Come tumbling down 


So just breathe

Take it easy

Let it go

What’s for you’ll no go past you 

Don’t you know it’s true

The harder you hold on 

The more slips through 

What’s for you’ll no go past you 


Wrote every word

Learned every line

Sang every song 

rhymed every rhyme 

So why is it so hard

To roll with the dice

To lay down your cards

Or let fate decide


And just like that

All those beautiful plans 

Come tumbling down 


So just breathe

Take it easy

Let it go

What’s for you’ll no go past you 

Don’t you know it’s true

The harder you hold on 

The more slips through 

What’s for you’ll no go past you 


Knocked off your feet

Your rug’s pulled out

Up in the air

And you’re flying now

You can’t win them all

It’s such a shame

Them’s just the rules

That’s just the game                        



And just like that

All those beautiful plans

You made, and made again 

All come tumbling down 

Tumbling down


So just breathe

Take it easy

Let it go

What’s for you’ll no go past you 

Don’t you know it’s true

The harder you hold on 

The more slips through 

What’s for you’ll no go past you


So just breathe

Take it easy

Let it go

What’s for you’ll no go past you 

Don’t you know it’s true

The harder you hold on 

The more slips through 

What’s for you’ll no go past you 


What’s for you’ll no go past 

What’s for you’ll no go past

What’s for you’ll no go past you


What’s for you’ll no go past 

What’s for you’ll no go past

What’s for you’ll no go past you
