Lyrics

For You

Written By: John Brindle

Oh Eyes and hair and face I notice,
Talk to me and I just love this,
Feeling, darling, this feeling so sweet,
It lifts me up my love
So the ground can't touch my feet.

See I'd pull your arms around me,
If I wasn't so cowardly.
Shout it out for all to see
Get yourself in love with me.
Put your heart next to me
And set it free.

Coz I got these feelings darlin,
These feeling for you
I ain't decieving darling
These feelings so true
Coz I got these feeling darling
These feelings so sweet
Just get yourself right in love with me.

You see it's 4 o'clock in the afternoon,
And I'm drinking on my own,
All I got in my head is your heart
Want to make it my home
But I can't seem to say the words that come into my head
I write them down and mess around and write a song instead

Coz I got these feelings darlin,
These feeling for you
I ain't decieving darling
These feelings so true
Coz I got these feeling darling
These feelings so sweet
Just get yourself right in love with me.

It's so hard sometimes just to say
These words I 'd like to say
I write them down for you
and express them now in this form so true
Coz I got these feelings for you
These feelings so true.
Got these feelings now right from my heart.

Coz I got these feelings darlin,
These feeling for you
I ain't decieving darling
These feelings so true
Coz I got these feeling darling
These feelings so sweet
Just get yourself right in love with me.

Tongue Tied

Written By: John Brindle

Working 9-5, Treading the line,
Biding my time,
I'm Fine.
Bus stop, grab something to eat,
See her walking down the street,
She's fine

Tongue tied, nothing to say,
She says "Get outta my way you freak"
Unable to recover the blow, I'll go with the flow, I'll speak with her next week.

It's about time I realised,
Things won't arrive till I reach for them.
If I hang five well life will just pass me by,
And I'll be

Tapping my feet to the beat of the broken man down on the street,
I'll be just fine till I catch her eye and I'll be tongue tied again.

Unable to recover the blow, I'll go with the flow, I'll speak with her next week.

It's about time I realised,
Things won't arrive till I reach for them.
If I hang five well life will just pass me by,
And I'll be

Tapping my feet to the beat of the broken man down on the street,
I'll be just fine till I catch her eye and I'll be tongue tied again.
