(Whatever Happened to) Sleepy Street?

Written By: Adrian Miller

(Whatever Happened To)
SLEEPY STREET Adrian Miller

On the day that we moved into our street:

Rows of wrinkled faces look up from their flower beds
Whispered conversations down by the garden shed
Eyes behind closed curtains watching everything we did

That was Sleepy Street
Welcome to Sleepy Street
Nothing ever happened to interrupt my sleep

That was Sleepy Street
Welcome to Sleepy Street
The only disturbance the sound of falling leaves

But the old ones shuffled off and young families moved in
Came the sound of crying babies and the clatter of children
And the happy noise of barbecues and games out on the lawn

Till the children all grew – little innocents no more
All night parties every week in the house next door
From what I hear it sounds to me they’re breaking every law

All in Sleepy Street
Whatever happened to Sleepy Street
Endless nights of interrupted sleep
All in Sleepy Street
Whatever happened to Sleepy Street
The daily disturbance of teenage terrorists
Give me back my Sleepy Street

I can’t believe that I’ve been here for so long
I never meant to stay, never meant to settle down
I dreamt of scaling mountains
Thought I’d sail across the oceans
Saw a life of great adventure
At the edge of my horizons
But instead I’ve watched so many others come and go
Ask me all about my street, there’s nothing I don’t know
(Did you see what they’re doing across the road?)

Now they’ve built a supermarket on the bowling green
And a pizza joint and video at number 17
The local RSL has had to close its doors
Because no-one with a memory lives here any more

Ah Sleepy Street
Give me back my Sleepy Street
How I long for Sleepy Street
Ah Sleepy Street
Whatever happened to Sleepy Street…..
How I long for Sleepy Street

Now the kids have grown & gone
No-one playing on the lawn
The world goes spinning on
But I never leave my own front door
I’ve got my Sleepy Street once more
Got my Sleepy Street got my Sleepy Street once more

Guided Tour Of Love

Written By: Adrian Miller

Guided tour of love

Walk me through the busy streets
To sacred places lovers meet
Take me on a guided tour of love
Take my hand and walk with me
To places that I've never been

Take me on a guided tour of love
Show me a kaleidoscope of love

Show me rivers show me streams
Gentle slopes and mountain peaks
Take me on a guided tour of love
Show me passion show me lust
Give me back the things I've lost

Take me on a guided tour of love
Show me a kaleidoscope of love

We could just wander all over the place
Slowly meander at our own pace
Sending off postcards to our family and friends
Hoping our journey never ends

You could show me now perhaps
Things I've only read on maps
Take me on a guided tour of love
You can be my constant guide
I will never leave your side

Take me on a guided tour of love
Show me a kaleidoscope of love

Show me a kaleidoscope of love

Funny You Should Mention

Funny You Should Mention

It's uncanny, it's unreal

Funny you should mention
At a moment like this
You want the road we're travelling
To lead to a kiss
That's just what I was thinking
Oh yes

Funny You Should Mention
You feel it in your bones
The dark times are over
We're on our way home
That's just what I was thinking
How did you know

It's uncanny, it's unreal
You always seem to know how I feel
Isnt it amazing
We can say the same things
Even without speaking.

Funny you should mention
It's funny you should say
You think we've turned a corner
You think we're on our way
That's just what I was thinking
What can I say
It's just what I was thinking…

Not Simple Anymore

Written By: Adrian Miller

Not Simple Any More (Adrian Miller / Gary Stiliano)

What is this fascination I have for you?
You keep me guessing, it's my impression
You're really not sure if it's fantasy or passion
Are you leading me on?
Have you got me on your hook?
Am I just another chapter in an unfinished book?

It's not simple any more
We can never quite be sure
Whether what we have is good for us
Or if it breaks some unwritten law
It's not simple any more

What other complications will you lead me through?
Will I keep on getting myself in trouble?
My reputation reduced to rubble
Are you playing with me?
Have I become your little toy?
Are there any little tortures you intend to employ?

It's not simple any more
We can never quite be sure
Whether what we have is good for us
Or if it breaks some unwritten law
It's not simple any more

So in my situation do I have any choice?
Do I give into temptation?
Do I offer resignation?
Are we ready for love?
Are you planning my downfall?
Will you get away with murder,
Am I more than you can handle?

It's not simple any more
We can never quite be sure
Whether what we have is good for us
Or if it breaks some unwritten law
It's not simple any more

It's not simple any more……….

One Plus One

Written By: Adrian Miller

One Plus One

One plus one plus one.....

This love we have will never die
But it's not you and it's not I
It's something else that we have both become
It's too polite and circumspect
We both know what we can expect
There's no surprise from adding one plus one

But neither one can see the fun
In ending what we have begun
We're both afraid of adding one plus one

I could not do the things I do
If I were not in love with you
I never could have made it on my own
But parts of us I'd have to say
Were sacrificed along the way
A consequence of adding one plus one

But neither one can see the fun
In ending what we have begun
We are the sum of adding one plus one

It doesn't add up
It should be so easy
Why won't it add up
It's just you and me

This love we have will never die
But it's not you and it's not I
It's something else that we have both become
It's too polite and circumspect
We both know what we can expect
There's no surprise from adding one plus one

But neither one can see the fun
In ending what we have begun
We are the sum of adding one plus one
