A Better Way

Written By: Howard Riley


A better way

Were looking for peace were looking for love
No more anger only love

WERE GOTTA FIND A BETTER WAY TO
CHANGE THE WORLD CHANGE OUR WAYS
TAKE US SOMEWHERE WE MUST GO WHERE
WE YES SAY YES INSTEAD OF NO
WHERE WILL IT END
WE JUST DON’T KNOW
WE MUST TRY
GIVE IT A GO

Were looking for peace were looking for love
No more anger only love

WE’LL RIGHT THE WRONGS THAT WE HAVE DONE
TURN THE DARKNESS INTO LIGHT
WE USED TO WALK BUT NOW WE RUN
FROM THE RAIN INTO THE SUN
WHERE WILL IT END WE JUST DON’T KNOW
WE’LL KEEP LOOKING
WE MUST FIND A
BETTER WAY

CHORUS
DON’T PUT OFF TILL TOMORROW
WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY
CAUSE TOMORROW CAN BE A LONELY PLACE
SO THE PUT THE PAST BEHIND YOU
LEAVE THE FUTURE TO THE REST
AND TODAY WE WILL FIND A BETTER WAY

WERE GOTTA FIND A BETTER WAY TO
CHANGE THE WORLD CHANGE OUR WAYS
NO MORE CRYING NO MORE PAIN
CAUSE WE WON’T PASS THIS WAY AGAIN
WHERE WILL IT END WE JUST DON’T KNOW
WE’LL KEEP LOOKING
WE MUST FIND A BETTER WAY

Were looking for peace were looking for love
No more anger only love

Never Ending Circles

Written By: Howard Riley

NEVER ENDING CIRCLES
BY HOWARD RILEY

I, M GOING ROUND IN CIRCLES
RUNNING OUT OF TIME
I, M WONDERING WHAT TO DO NEXT
MAKING UP MY MIND

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
CAN I SEE THE WAY
WILL MY LIFE GET BETTER
CAN I SEE THE DAY

CHORUS
MY EYES ARE CLOSED.I,M LOOKING FOR THE ANSWER
ITS SOMEWHERE INSIDE MY HEAD
SO I WILL KEEP ON SEARCHING
DARK CORNERS OF MY MIND
WILL I FIND A LIGHT ON OR
WILL I STILL BE BLIND

KEY CHANGE
NEVER ENDING CIRCLES LEADING ME ASTRAY
WAISTING SO MUCH TIME I, LL
NEVER FIND MY WAY

I HEAR VOICES TALKING BUT I
DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY SAY
SHOULD I REALLY LISTEN
SHOULD I REALLY PLAY

CHORUS
THESE GAMES ARE SO HARD TO FOLLOW
THESE SET OF RULES ARE
SO HARD TO SWALLOW
SO IF I PLAY THIS GAME YOU CHOOSE
WILL I FALL DOWN WILL I LOOSE
WILL THE CARDS ALLOW ME TO
STAND TALL NEXT TO YOU

GUITAR SOLO KEY CHANGE

CHORUS
I OPEN MY EYES STILL LOOKING FOR THE ANSWER
IT’S OUT THERE SOMEWHERE HIDDEN IN THE DUSK
UNDER STEET LIGHTS EVENING GLOW
YOU,LL BE STANDING THERE I NO
THE SOONER I START BELIEVING THE
SOONER YOU WILL SHOW

When the Party Ends

Written By: Howard Riley

When the Party ends

When the part’s over I hope that we’ll stay friends
And maybe in the morning you’ll think of me again
and now the night is fading into another day
and the dancing is over can i see you on your way
middle 8
I would be so happy to have you at my side
To show you off to my friends would fill my heart with pride
And maybe one tomorrow we could meet again
and maybe we’ll be lovers when the party ends
solo
and now the night has faded into another day
we had such a great time can I make you mine
middle 8
I would be so happy to have you at my side
To show you off to my friends would fill my heart with pride
And maybe one tomorrow we could meet again
and maybe we’ll be lovers when the party ends
maybe one tomorrow we could meet again
maybe we’’l be lovers when the party ends

It costs nothing to be nice

Written By: Howard Riley

It Costs nothing to be Nice
You don’t have to think about
It comes so naturally
You will find the right words
If you believe
I don’t need no fancy script
I don’t need no fine degree
I’ll just go and tell right
It costs nothing to be nice
(2)
Don’t be afraid to show emotion
You will feel much better
It’s better out than so
Pull yourself together
Go and make somebody smile
You will feel a glow inside
If you do it right
It costs nothing to be nice
Chorus We can’t be happy every day
We all find sorrow on our way
So if you see a stranger start to cry
Go and help them out
Help them find a smile
Try and understand
The others point of view
There is always someone
Much worse off than you
Solo
Every day will bring you something new
Something’s good and some not so good for you
You must make the best of all things new
Because you don’t know how lucky you are you no it’s true
So thank your lucky stars
You are who you are
Go and tell it right it costs
Nothing to be nice
So thank your lucky stars
You are who you are
Go and tell it right it costs
Nothing to be nice

Pot Of Gold

Written By: Howard Riley

Pot of Gold

I don’t know where I’m going
I don’t know where I’ve been
I don’t know what I’m looking for
But I’ll never never give in

(2) I’ve walked a hundred highways
I’ve sailed the seven seas
I’ve climbed the highest mountains
Trying to find peace of mind
I don’t know where I’m going
I don’t know where I’ve been
I don’t know what I’m looking for
But I’ll never never give in

(3) I left my home in Longwood
To sing with crap rock band
Searching for a spot gold
Never found it growing old
I don’t know where I’m going
I don’t know where I’ve been
I don’t know what I’m looking for
But I’ll never give in
Guitar solo
(4) I don’t know where I’m going
I don’t know where I’ve been
I don’t know what I’m looking for
But I’ll never give in
(5) I left my friends behind
Never gave them a second thought
I wonder what they’re doing now
I like to find out some how
(6) I don’t know where I’m going
I don’t know where I’ve been
I don’t know what I’m looking for
But I’ll never give in

The Flame of Peace

Written By: Howard Riley

The Flame of Peace By Howard Riley

Refrain (Light the flame of peace
and put the guns away)

Theres so many things to do
things that must be done
why cant we all be free &
say what we need to say
It's the only way No more

Fighting on the streets we live
leave our differences behind
Why can't we live together
why can't we all be friends
it's the only way

Chorus

Lets lite the flame of peace
put and the guns away
its no way to carry on
in these brand new days
lets lite the flame let the candle burn
cause its the on-ly, way

Refrain (Light the flame of peace
and put the guns away)
(Light the flame of peace
and put the guns away)

Let the children carry on
from where it all went wrong
they have the right to try
they can’t do worse than us
its the the only way

Theres so many things to do
things that must be done
why cant we all be free &
say what we need to say
It's the only way

Chorus

Refrain (Light the flame of peace x2
and put the guns away)

THE SEASON'S ROUNDABOUT

Autumn leaves are falling
landing at my feet
Each one tells a sorty
some win, while others lose.

No matter when you fall
before your walking tall
you have to learn you have to grow
then, you will know

what life is all about
one day your in the next your out
the fashion changes so quickly
on the season's roundabout

Snow drops gently falling
I catch one in my hand
Like the rainbow it won't be there long
so grab it while you can.

Cause life won't wait for you
do what you gotta do
Good times won't last for ever
it's a bit like, bit like the weather

One day the sun will shine
let all the life get out
And then the next day it will rain
on the season's roundabout.

Crystal coloured waters
falling from my eyes
My memories keep me going
till I find a place of mine
at the right time.

Show me the way

Peace in our Time

Written By: Howard Riley

Peace in our time
Is a dream of mine?
With hope for every one
Under the sun

No more starving children on our streets
No more fighting wars we can't win
No more narrow minded beliefs
There’s a place for every colour on my street

Peace in our time
Is a dream of mine?
With hope for every one
Under the sun

I want no more kids dealing drugs on our streets
I don’t any guns and knives to make them bleed
And no more racist tension if you please
There’s a place for all religions on my street

Peace in our time
Is a dream of mine?
With hope for every one
Under the sun

No more using age as an excuse it’s a cop out the young have dreams the old have things to forget about
We all came we all go out the same door
there's a place everybody on my dance floor

Peace in our time
Is a dream of mine?
With hope for every one
Under the sun

Peace in our time
Is a dream of mine?
With hope for every one
Under the sun

The Road to Love

I thought I new where i was going
Did I take the wrong road or have i been miss-led
so many twists and turns so many dead end streets
I must clear my head put my fears to bed

The road to love is a long long road
Prepare your heart for a heavy load

But now I’m sure everything must end

The road to love is a long long road
Prepare my heart for a heavy load
