"Then Again"

"Then Again"


Then is here again
It's never been away so don't call it a comeback
Happy days of yore are all destroyed
And now it's looking like a sad sack

I can't believe that I couldn't see
How many dodgy men were on the TV
While I was growing to a man
They took advantage of the fans

When I was a boy
They were stars of prime time television
But circumstances change
And some of them ended up in prison

Now, when they re-run Top Of The Pops
Some of the hosts have got the chop
I'm sleeping soundly in my bed
'Cos Jimmy Savile's still dead

The swinging seventies
Used to sit on celebrities knees
The nineteen seventies
Sat on celebrities knees

Speculation began to roam
Like M.P.'s through a children's home
"How many more", "what did they do"
Where were the girls and boys in blue?

Now the victims and their families
Have retrospective apologies
They're told, that was then
It isn't now
We've slaughtered all those sacred cows

Then is here again
It's never been away so don't call it a comeback
Happy days of yore are all destroyed
And now it's looking like a sad sack

It's then again
Then again

"Then I Met You"

"Then I Met You"


Thought that I'd be happy
Going to be so happy
Living life alone and never sharing anything

Thought that I was finished
Thought that I was complete
Thought that I was whole instead of being half of something

Thought that I was growing
Growing older, wiser
Understanding why this world held nothing for my spirit

Thought that I was destined
Destined to be nothing
Destined to be nothing in this world and then I met you.

I met you
I met you
I met you
I met you

Thought that God had failed me
Thought my prayers were useless
Thought that he would never give the chance for me to praise him

Thought the book was written
Thought the game had ended
Thought the song was sung and I could never sing another

Thought my faith was misplaced
Thought my back was broken
Broken by a weight that I was never fit to carry

I thought I knew this city
Thought I knew all about it
And then one night I went to Morningside and you were waiting

I met you
I met you
I met you
I met you

Thought that I'd be happy
Going to be so happy
Living life alone and never sharing anything

Thought that I was finished
Thought that I was complete
Thought that I was whole instead of being half of something

Thought that I was growing
Growing older, wiser
Understanding why this world held nothing for my spirit

Thought that I was destined
Destined to be nothing
Destined to be nothing in this world and then I met you.

I met you
I met you
I met you
I met you

I met you
I met you
I met you
I met you

I met you
I met you
I met you
I met you

"There's A Touch"

"There's A Touch"


There's a touch upon my lips
Left by memory's fingertips
I still hear her voice
When there's no sound
There's a touch upon my skin
Left when she went back to him
All the rest has gone
She's not around
When I saw her first
It was lust my friend
Thought it would burn
Then it would end
But I lost my old philosophy
Now I believed in love
Well the months went by and my love grew strong
Thought she felt the same but I was wrong
She held my old philosophy
Now I'm destroyed by love
There's a touch, [etc...]
Well I still believed that I would win
Cos I was a better man than him
She held the new philosophy
Now she believed in love
But the love she felt was not for me
Said she would have to set me free
Now I know there's no philosophy
That can't be destroyed by love
There's a touch, [etc...]

"There's No Doubt"

"There's No Doubt"


There's no doubt about it now
Youth has gone
It shines upon some other brow
Not this one
Lends its air of carelessness
To another manly breast
Dolling out its confidence
To the bright and to the dense
There's no doubt about it now
Youth has gone

There's no doubt about it now
I love you
Much deeper after all the years
We've lived through
Romance is just an old idea
When you've reached your middle years
But love is something to behold
As the old idea unfolds
There's no doubt about it now
I love you

Though age and love rest in my mind
There's something else that I can't find
No I just can't find, no just can't find

There's no doubt about it now
I can't find a reason for existence
In my mind
I feel there must be something else
but maybe I just fool myself
I want to know the God you know
but he never seems to show
There's no doubt about it now
I don't know

"There’s"

"There’s"


There's your coat upon my back
There's the irony I lacked
There's the vapour from your mouth
There's the rain spreading from the south
There's the castle on the hill
There's my final act of will
There's a bus stop in Tollcross
There's no memory I've lost
Memories never lost
There's you lying on the quilt
There's your west of Scotland lilt
Singing me your guilt
There's your voice on the phone
There's your voice on the phone
There's your voice on the phone
There's your voice on the phone
There's your voice on the phone
There's your voice on the phone
There's the snow in January
There's the beauty that you see
There's you walking down the street
Children running 'round your feet
There's you and there's me

"These Arms Of Mine"
(originally by Otis Redding)

"These Arms Of Mine"
(originally by Otis Redding)



These arms of mine
They are lonely
Lonely and feeling blue
These arms of mine
They are yearning
Yearning from wanting you
And if you
Would let them hold you
How grateful I will be
These arms of mine
The are burning
Burning from wanting you
These arms of mine
The are wanting
Wanting to hold you
And if you
Just let them hold you
How grateful I will be
How grateful I will be
C'mon c'mon baby
Just be my woman
Just be my lover
I need someone
Somebody to hold me tight
And I need
Your warm, warm loving arms
Around me tonight
Just let me hold you
Just let me hold you
Let my arms hold you
Just let them hold you
Please let me hold you
Just let me hold you
C'mon let me hold you
Just let me hold you
Please let me hold you
Just let me hold you

"Three More Days"

"Three More Days"


Three more days and then I'll see
The people who depend on me
Three more days and I'm home
Not long now till I step inside
The place where we all reside
Three more days and I'm home.

And life's rolled on and on
The whole time I've been gone
I walked around today feeling right
I dreamed about each one of them last night
Three more days and I'm home.

And life's rolled on and on
The whole time I've been gone
When I close my eyes I can see
The faces of my family
Three more days and I'm home.

Everything that I hold dear
Lies five thousand miles from here
Three more days and I'm home,
Three more days and I'm home,
home.

"Through Him"

"Through Him"


I was walking through the middle of the park
On Saturday morning at ten
Looking at the leaves and the bark
Laughing at the dogs and then
A man shoved a pamphlet in my face
All about the forgiveness of sins
I took if from him just in case
I should have thrown it in the bin
Thrown it in the bin
Thrown it in the bin
The pamphlet gave a Belfast address
There was a Scottish name signed on the line
It was the kind of stuff they made me ingest
In school when I was nine
It said "sin is a burden he can lift"
Sin is foul and must be cleansed away
Repent, or you'll be condemned
On the last day, on the last day, on the last day
Thank you so much for sharing
I know it's really caring
To break someone and rebuild them
To break someone and rebuild them
But I'm like the dirty ladies
And all the tiny babies
Who will burn in hell
If they don't come to God through him
Walking through the middle of the park
Saturday morning at ten
Looking at the leaves and the bark
Laughing at the dogs and then
Thank you so much for sharing
I know it's really caring
To break someone and rebuild them
Break em down and then rebuild them
But I'm like those dirty ladies
And all those tiny babies
Who you say will burn in hell
If they don't come to God through him
I was walking through the middle of the park
On Saturday morning at ten
I was looking at the leaves and the bark
Laughing at the dogs and then
It was a man shoved a pamphlet in my face
It was all about the forgiveness of sins
I took if from him just in case
I should have thrown it in the bin
Thrown it in the bin
Thrown it in the bin

"Throw The 'R' Away"

"Throw The 'R' Away"


I've been so sad
Since you said my accent was bad
He's worn a frown
This Caledonian clown
I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
Some days I stand
On your green and pleasant land
How dare I show face
When my diction is such a disgrace
I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
You say that if I want to get ahead
The language I use should be left for dead
It doesn't please your ear
And though you tell it like a leg-pull
It seems your still full of John Bull
You just refuse to hear
Oh what can I do
To be understood by you
Perhaps for some money
I could talk like a bee dripping honey.
I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
You say that if I want to get ahead
The language I use should be left for dead
It doesn't please your ear
And though you tell it like a leg-pull
I think your still full of John Bull
You just refuse to hear
He's been so sad
Since you said his accent was bad
He's worn a frown
This Caledonian clown
I'm just going to have to learn to hesitate
To make sure my words
On your Saxon ears don't grate
But I wouldn't know a single word to say
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
Flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away
If I flattened all the vowels
And threw the 'R' away

"Tuesday Afternoon"

"Tuesday Afternoon"


The time was twenty past
Our meeting was delayed
I watched you move
Over Edinburgh concrete
I hid behind the wall
And as you approached
I tried to guess
At what you were thinking
Then memory, took me away
Two miles from here
And three decades ago
Then all at once, so soon
You were inside the room
And that was Tuesday afternoon
This love is old and new
This love is happening now
This love is mine
And I give it you gladly
If you don't want it, say
I'll take it away
And put it back in the place
Where I found it
And every now and then
I'll take it out again
Turn it in my hands
And look upon its madness
Then lead it from the room
And show it to the moon
And remember Tuesday afternoon
I remember Tuesday afternoon
I recall the sweet scent of your skin
And if I try hard I begin
Almost to draw a trace
Of your glistening lips upon my face
I never regret you
But sometimes I forget you
Like when I'm tired
And I make bad decisions
But you come back to me
Your lovely melody
Sings to my soul
And lifts me to heaven
And as I'm rising up
A yellow buttercup
Illuminates your chin
And causes gentle laughter
Yours is the song I croon
I know I'll see you soon
I love you, Tuesday afternoon
