Lyrics

Third Movement

Written By: Nigel Thomas

Taking up her tiny bag and frilly hat
She steps out in the sun,
Thinking she’s the only one for everyone,
She’s so damn nearly true.

On her phone she hesitates, it’s him again,
But she won’t let him through,
As she drives along, puts her make-up on,
Only if it hid her sorrow.

We’ve all been here before and it’s all about love you know.

I never meant to hurt you,
But we had to do it your way all the time,
And the times I told you that I needed something else you turned away.

Visiting a children’s park with pseudo heart,
It’s plastic through and through,
Fireworks light up the sky, a memory tries
To break her shell in two.

Eating off a paper plate it’s all too late,
Or so she tries to say,
And a distant bell peals “Won’t you try?”
She can’t hear it, she has given up.

We’ve all been here before and it’s all about love you know.

I never meant to hurt you,
But we had to do it your way all the time,
And the times I told you that I needed something else you turned me away.

Don’t go.

5476 Miles

Written By: Nigel Thomas

I used to have to find a place to crawl away,
A darkened corner of my soul is where I’d stay.
Happiness, it blew away, on winds of certainty,
That you were still as distant as Los Angeles to me,

I have got it bad...and when you
come home, come to me...

The walls around me were impervious to all,
And for the first time in my life I watched them fall,

You’re the first the only
one, my Jericho lain bare,
All I am and all I have is you forever,

You have got it bad...and when you come home, come to me...
You can love, you can ove me, yes you can.
‘Cos I already love you....’cos I really do love you.

We take our baby steps, together all the way,
And every moment takes us closer to the day,
Waking to your smile, there’s not a single thing I’d need,
Only all the love you give, my heart and mind you’ve freed

We have got it bad...and when you come home, come to me...
You can love, you can love me, yes you can.
‘Cos I already love you....’cos I really do love you.

Destiny

Written By: Nigel Thomas

You're speaking very low, well say hello,
Nothing could be further from the way you think that I am feeling.
Oh no, oh no.
Too much sunny weather can be harmful to your head I'm thinking oh no.

I hear people say it's my destiny but I just don't believe it, no I don't believe in it,
Yeah, there was a time it was destiny but now I don't believe it, you can think anything.

The statue's looking lonely, well it's baloney,
Anything I think of makes reality a laughing stock, well,
Oh no, oh no.
Filling up your stockings with a tiny bit of soul, I'm thinking oh no.

I hear people say it's my destiny but I just don't believe it, no I don't believe in it,
Yeah, there was a time it was destiny but now I don't believe it, you can think anything.

Anne (deicated to Anne Frank)

Written By: Nigel Thomas

Haven’t heard from you since your last letter,
Hope you’re feeling better now you’ve cried.
We’ve been having the most awful weather,
Hope you’re keeping safe and warm inside.

I know that it hasn’t been so easy,
And I know it’s hard to keep that smile,
Please believe me, and please do tell Kitty,
All you’re going through will be worthwhile.

And it’s the love you’ve shown me,
Open up and show me again,
You touched so many hearts, Anne...
Love you’ve shown me,
Pass it on and read it again
It wasn’t all in vain Anne.

Recently I moved aside the bookcase,
Standing where you once poured out your fears,
Please forgive me, I’m too late to help you,
Like you’ve helped so many through the years.

Aspirations met without your knowing,
Time to put the demons here at bay,
I will not forget the things you taught me,
Seizing every minute of the day.

Stepping Up

Written By: Nigel Thomas

Stepping up and out of where you once were innocent,
Anger that decides who you will punish won’t relent.
And in your own way, I think you’ll finally find a way to say…

If I had a fortune I would gladly sit around,
Losing all I have is where my inspiration’s found
Hiding here you’ll never see me, the police will not believe me, this will never do.
I could hope an accident will take me from the picture,
But I just haven’t thought it though.
And in your own way, I think you’ll finally find a way to say…

I got something, shout how I'm feeling,
Got two three four five wach them reeling,
You can't understand it, we can't understand it.

Dee da, de da dee da dee da do...
