Lyrics

WASTELAND

Written By: KRISENKA FINLEY

LOVE IS LIKE TILLING FIELDS SO THAT A GOOD CROP CAN GROW
YOU’D BETTER KNOW WHERE TO DROP YOUR GRAIN
OTHERWISE YOU CAN WORK IN VAIN
AND SEE YOUR HARVEST WITHERED AWAY AND PLUCKED BY CROWS

AND I FOUND OLD WASTELAND
WANTED TO SOW MY BEST SEED
AND NOTHING GREW FROM THE SAND
ONLY SCORCHED CROP UNDER MY FEET

HOW COULD I KNOW THE KIND OF SOIL THAT I WAS WORKING ON
BEFORE LETTING IT BREAK MY HEART
I DID MY BEST AND I PLOUGHED HARD
BUT IT WAS USELESS AND SPOILT, THE LAND I WAS WORKING ON

AND I FOUND OLD WASTELAND
WANTED TO SOW MY BEST SEED
AND NOTHING GREW FROM THE SAND
ONLY SCORCHED CROP UNDER MY FEET

YOU’D BETTER KNOW WHERE TO DROP YOUR GRAIN
OTHERWISE YOU CAN WORK IN VAIN
AND IT WAS USELESS AND SPOILT, THE LAND I WAS WORKING ON.

NOW IS THE TIME

Written By: KRISENKA FINLEY

EARLY MORNING, ALARM CLOCK,
HAVE A SHOWER, HAVE A TOAST,
AND ANOTHER DAY BEGINS
JUST LIKE THE FORMER.

HUSBAND WAKES UP, GOES DOWNSTAIRS,
READS THE PATER, LEAVES THE HOME,
NOT A KISS TO MAKE ME FEEL A LITTLE WARMER.

NOW IS THE TIME TO SAY GOOD-BYE
NOW IS THE TIME TO LEAVE ALL THIS BEHIND
NOW IS THE TIME TO LIVE MY OWN LIFE
'CAUSE NOW I'M FREE, I'M FREE,
I'M FREE, I'M FREE.

IN THE OFFICE, PILES OF WORK,
NEVER ENDING FOR A CLERK,
DIDN'T HAVE MUCH TIME TO SPARE
IN MANY YEARS

HOUSEHOLD DUTIES, CHILDREN GROW,
HUSBAND'S LOVER, NOT A GLOW
SUCH AN ORDINARY WORLD
PROVOKES MY TEARS.

NOW IS THE TIME TO SAY GOOD-BYE
NOW IS THE TIME TO LEAVE ALL THIS BEHIND
NOW IS THE TIME TO LIVE MY OWN LIFE
'CAUSE NOW I'M FREE, I'M FREE,
I'M FREE, I'M FREE.

SOLO

'CAUSE NOW I'M FREE, I'M FREE,
I'M FREE, I'M FREE.
'CAUSE NOW I'M FREE, I'M FREE,
I'M FREE, I'M FREE.
