Lyrics

Jean de Luz

Written By: John Bailey

A little cafe down a side street in a town called Jean de Luz. I take the weight off my feet you came over with the menu. Your beautiful face so sad a little angry. I like this place, the white walls and the blue curtains. You disappear through a swinging door outside day turns to night. I watch you working the floor. From my corner I'm out of sight. Your beautiful face so sad a little angry. You come over on a break sit down and talk. In your perfect English you gave it to me you said this place is nowhere want to be. The chef's a bastard and the owner sucks. The rent's overdue and I aint got the bucks so can I come driving with you? Lets run away. Leave this town tonight. Leave the poet to rationalise all is not right. Another chance since yesterday where have you been. Whats done doesn't matter roll from zero again.

Keep Your Secrets To Yourself

Written By: John Bailey

KEEP YOUR SECRETS TO YOURSELF

Sorry never meant too much you put it down to fate
Rain is falling hard it came far too late
To break the drought and free the desert from your memory
and drown you in oceans of ecstasy

Keep your secrets to yourself hide them from your lover
Worry about your health thinking of another
Time when she was free
When she said she'd love to be surrounded
Wrapped up so hopelessly

Learnt your lessons well at home listened to your mother
Beyond the aquadome above you there's another
Circling bird of prey
When your drifting out to sea or grounded
Washed up so helplessly

Keep your secrets to yourself hide them from your lover
Worry about your health thinking of another
Time when she was free
When she said she'd love to be surrounded
Wrapped up so hopelessly

Turn away from your love
Leave it alone
Turn away from your loneliness
To be your own
Long conversation long distance on the phone
Never turn away for too long
To be on your own

Ancient Freedom Song

Written By: John Bailey

On another continent, she's packing her bags, heading for the wilderness, camp fires and rags. She'll join the gypsy caravan, let her hair grow long, singing in the chorus, the ancient freedom song.
One autumn day in April, she's walking the coast, talking of abstraction, what she loves the most.
And in the canyon of her dreams, met by revelation, all's not what it seems.
Sister Moon take me with you, light up my life, you called me now I'll come, to the beating of your drum.
Forget the finance brokers, the lawyers in Hong Kong, she's singing in the chorus, the ancient freedom song.
And in the tide of dreary business and the banks at traffic lights, she's taken up the fight.
Sister Moon take me with you, light up my life, you called me now I'll come, to the beating of your drum.
