Who's Laughing Now?

I know it doesn’t make it better But I never meant to cause you pain And you may believe your justified When at my feet you neatly place the blame Won’t you give me half a chance to explain? Explode the myths and let me start again The past has flown there’s no excuses So why can’t you believe the words I say I can’t change all the things I’ve done But that’s the price I’m going to have to pay Won’t you give me half a chance to explain? Explode the myths and let me start again Can’t you see through the years I’m not the same as I was before I’ve taken all that life has to give and then some more The way I felt I kept hidden so no-one could tell I even fooled myself, how well I lied My love I denied You never realised how much I love you I couldn’t say, so who’s the fool? They say time makes the hurting less But why’s this knife still twisting in my heart Won’t you give me half a chance to explain? Explode the myths and let me start again I know it doesn’t make it better I know it doesn’t make it better

What needs to be said? Nothing and yet everything Why won't you tell me all the things that you wanted to but never did? Your face at the window. What are you trying to do, drive me insane? Do you think it's all so funny these games with my, emotions you play? CHORUS When you build me up, to knock me down You never laugh 'cos it's easier to frown You say you love me but you never show me You don't know how You give me hope, then you take it away You never listen to what I have to say You say you love me but you never show me You don't know how Is love an illusion? A passing dream that just fades away So many words written & spoken yet it seems so strange how they have nothing to say You speak of confusion, of how you would like things to be But your rules keep on changing so just where on Earth does that really leave me? CHORUS

I love you & I need you & I want you oh so much I see you walking down the street your with that... guy I love you & I need you but he gave you the eye I wonder if he cares half as much as... I CHORUS What did I do so wrong? Was it something I said or done? You know that I love you and I want you back.... again, yeah! I love you & I need you & I want you oh so much I never meant to hurt you girl or make you... cry I love you & I need you but you just said goodbye I winder if he cares half as much as... I CHORUS I love you & I need you & I want you oh so much I see you walking down the street your with that... guy I love you & I need you but you just said goodbye I winder if he cares half as much as... I CHORUS

The Real Me 03:42
These feelings cannot be denied You never see the tears I cry Locked away so deep inside Fooled myself how much I've lied Too scared to let you know the truth Tried to conform but what's the use Trapped within a living hell Hidden so no-one can tell CHORUS Silence doesn't make these feelings go away They get stronger, with each passing day In your eyes won't you tell me who you see I bet you don't see the real me. The real me What makes you think that you're the best? When you're just like all the rest Contempt it shows through all your lies It's misconceptions you despise I'm still the same who's changed is you You just don't see me as I do But I can stand the test of time I don't have to toe the line CHORUS What makes you think that you're the best? When you're just like all the rest

I spend all my time thinking about you There's nothing else I want to do Love's the cause of this situation A classic case and there's no cure CHORUS You came along, turned my emotions upside down & inside out Now I know what love is really all about Cannot eat, I cannot sleep. Think of you and I go weak They say that this is hell and Hell is where I want to be, as long as it's with you. Telephone rings anticipation I hope and pray, that it's you Love's the cause of this situation A classic case and there's no cure CHORUS I spend all my time thinking about you There's nothing else I want to do Love's the cause of this situation A classic case and there's no cure CHORUS CHORUS
6.
How can I look at you after all the things you said? How can you kiss me now and then just go off to bed? Do you think that I have got no pride because you've never seen the tears I cried? How could you lie? How could you lie? All of the time You never meant to hurt me You never meant to cause me pain But the insincerity in your eyes burns like a flame And you say that I 've got no pride 'cos you've never seen the tears I cry Why do you lie? Why do you lie? All of the time. Did you think I wouldn't realise? Did you think you were so smart? There's nothing left inside of me Except this broken heart So don't you call me cruel After all you've put me through I've picked up the pieces And I can start my life again You'd better face the truth This really is, the end So tell me that your sorry though I've heard it all from you The same old lines repeat themselves it's a case of dejavu Still you tell me that I've got no pride But you'll never, ever, ever see the tears I cried And still you lie. Why must you lie? All of the time.

Enough is enough, why can’t they see? That the gun and the bomb; only bring insanity Another victim lies dead on the ground Her only crime, wrong place wrong time I wonder how God feels with them killing in his name Does it hurt him inside; does he share our shame? Where is the truth, where is the right, when a mother cries, for her child tonight, tonight? I wonder how God feels with them killing in his name Does it hurt him inside; does he share our pain? Where is the truth, where is the right, when a father cries, for his child tonight, tonight? Enough is enough, where will it end? Around a graveside and who will defend, another victim of the gunman’s hand one innocent, who hadn’t taken a stand? I wonder how God feels with them killing in his name Does it hurt him inside; does he share our pain? Where is the truth, where is the right, when a father cries, for his child tonight, tonight? I wonder how God feels with them killing in his name Does it hurt him inside; does he share our shame? Where is the truth, where is the right, when a mother cries, for her child tonight, tonight?

Nothing! 04:18
She sits down in her cold dark room Pulls a blanket around her shoulders to keep her warm Vacant eyes stare into space She thinks of him, but he don't care at all CHORUS All the lines he used to feed her Sometimes she would even believe them Hanging on his everyword Nothing left, nothing left Looking in the bathroom mirror She sees a face she doesn't recognise Memories come back to haunt her His promises mean nothing to her now CHORUS He offered her freedom from the mundane Said he'd be there, help to ease her pain But he left at night while she was sleeping She knows, she'll never see his face again. CHORUS
9.
It's not the way it should be, according to the books Has love got you blinded, with all his foolish talk Never mind tomorrow, the past has slipped away And memories won't change at all the way you feel today CHORUS 'cos the way you feel today, Just reflects the past you try and hide away And the way you feel today Is the price you know you're goinna have to pay Your eyes still shine, though filled with pain, from last nights tears There's no reward for all those bloody, awful wasted years The life you thought was oh so true, has long since gone deserted you And memories won't change at all the way you feel today. Another drink won't help at all, or even ease the pain The fantasy you hold on to is driving you insane And broken promises from all those far off distant times Are to blame for, the way you feel today CHORUS
10.
I know that I said, I just want to be a friend to you But how can I stay a friend and to my heart be true? Won't you tell me, do you feel the same way too? Or am I just chasing the dream, of a girl like you? CHORUS A girl like you, could mend my heart so blue A girl like you, a girl like you In a lifetime rarely passes through A girl like you, a girl like you Could mend this heart, this heart of mine, so blue. I managed to just escape a relationship made in hell And even if I say so I think I wear the scars from it quite well. I dream about you, there's nothing else I can do But am I just wasting my time, on a girl like you? CHORUS I know I should tell you, of the way I feel inside But whenever I am near you girl, my tongue it gets so tied You'd think by now, I would know what I should do But I fall to pieces when it concerns a girl like you CHORUS
11.
What's that you're doing? What's that you say? I know it's getting late but why can't you stay? I never knew you could do those things Tell me why do they call it a sin? When you take me higher than I've ever been CHORUS You take me higher than I've ever been With things you do and you say You take me higher than I've ever been They call it a sin, it's a shame 'cos you take me higher than I've ever been; Ever been. Do you hear me calling out to you? I'm sending a signal is it getting through? Bad thoughts, haunt my dreams Of all the things that you do to me But, you take me higher than I've ever been CHORUS I'll do anything you want me to. You're my drug I need a daily fix from you There's a rush when I hear your name Passions wild, that can never be tamed But, You take me higher than I've ever been CHORUS
12.
I want to feel your body next to mine I want to hold you in my arms for all time I want to say the things to you, that I really want to do But you'll just slap my face to keep me in my place And that's a disgrace I want to touch you deep inside I want to take away the pain you try so hard to hide I want to do the things to you, that I know I shouldn't do But, you'll just slap my face to keep me in my place And that's a disgrace CHORUS You're telling me you want me but you won't say what for And you tell me that you need me as you're showing me the door Do you think that I am here for fun, for you to kick me when I'm down? And you slap my face to keep me in my place, and that's a disgrace I want to hear you say I'm on your mind I want to know that you always want me right by your side I want to hear you say the things, that you really want me to do So I can slap your face to put you in your place Now that's a disgrace CHORUS
13.
Why won't you look me in the eyes? It's been so many years my, how doesn't time really fly We used to be more than just good friends When did the war begin and sweet loving end? Are you still on your own? And do you still believe my heart is made of stone? CHORUS This heart of stone has been broken so many times This heart of stone has your name carved along with mine This heart of stone needs your love again But do you still feel the same? Do you think I am to blame for all your pain? Why won't you tell me how you feel? I've faced the truth and know my love for you is still so real Have memories been changed to tidy up the past? Remember the times when, we swore, our love would last? Where did they all go? And do you still believe my heart is made of stone? CHORUS Why don't you call me on the phone? I'd like to hear your voice and no I won't be cold. My emotions race, when I think of you I often question what the hell I'm going through I wonder if you feel the same Or do you still believe my heart is made of stone CHORUS
14.
What can I say you're only sixteen I don't know what you see in me I've been around done many things What you're proposing just isn't right CHORUS You know I'm losing sleep Your suggestions make me weak The things you want to do Should not be known by one as young as you I know you think that it's OK But let me tell you, love's no game It's a simple thing starts with a kiss But there's always a price to pay CHORUS My self control is slipping away Your constant flirting's driving me insane I want to do what I shouldn't do With one as young, as young as you CHORUS

about

Like StoryTeller & Reality Bites, this album was recorded using some very basic equipment and an old tin box.

We have done our best to improve the sound quality but, owing to the original recording and mixing qualities of the 4 track tape deck that was used, there is a rawness to the tracks which we have not been able to improve too much.

This album has been digitally remastered and has been made available, to complete the Discography and to show where Rob has come from musically.
