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.

Track Name: I Know It Doesn't Make It Better
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
Track Name: Don't Know How
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
Track Name: I Love You & I Need You
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
Track Name: The Real Me
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
Track Name: There's No Cure
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
Track Name: All Of The Time
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.
Track Name: Enough Is Enough
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?
Track Name: Nothing!
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
Track Name: The Way You Feel Today
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
Track Name: A Girl Like You
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
Track Name: Higher (than I've ever been)
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
Track Name: That's A Disgrace
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
Track Name: Heart Of Stone
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
Track Name: As Young As You
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
