Dance In The Light

Written By: Philip Irving

Dance In The Light
©Philip Irving 2006

I’m alive I’m alive and I’m loving this stuff
It’s the time of my life I don’t wanna give up
And I’m not really sure but I’ll give it a shot
Come over here and dance with me come over here and dance
Come over here and dance
And the love of your life will come swanning around
And the love that will grow from the love you have found
A sweet smell of hope from the love that abounds
Come over here and dance with me come over here and dance
Come over here and dance in the light
Dance in the light, dance in the la la la la la la lala lala

I’m gonna leave some day, I’m gonna leave someday
I’m gonna leave someday and dance in the light
I’m gonna leave some day, I’m gonna leave someday
I’m gonna leave someday and dance in the light
Dance in the light, dance in the la la la light

I’ve survived, I’ve survived, I was born to be tough
It’s the time spent alone, there was maybe too much
And I’m not really scared, but it’s been long enough
Come over here and dance with me come over here and dance
Come over here and dance
And the love of your life will come swanning around
And the love that will grow from the love you have found
A sweet smell of hope and the love will abound
Come over here and dance with me come over here and dance
Come over here and dance in the light
Dance in the light, dance in the la la la la la la lala lala

I’m gonna leave some day, I’m gonna leave someday
I’m gonna leave someday and dance in the light
I’m gonna leave some day, I’m gonna leave someday
I’m gonna leave someday and dance in the light
Dance in the light, dance in the la la la light

Sick Of My Job

Sick of My Job
©Philip Irving, 2009

I’m sick of my job , yes I’m sick of it, and its sick of me
And Jimmy would say, that no money’s been made
By making mistakes
But what can I do, where can I go,
I have no where but this
I’m losing my mind , thinking all this is fine
Can I just call it quits, just call it quits

I’m sick of this of this town
I’m sick of this place, I’m sick of it all
I joined up the band, and I know where I stand
And I learnt how to laugh
Forget my mistakes, I got what I need
And I learned from it all
I called up the band, forgot all this crap
And I’m not going back, not going back no!

Mary Jane

Mary Jane
©Philip Irving, 2010

You wanted an affair, and you looked most everywhere
For someone who could keep it under wraps
Do you like what you became and I wonder who’s to blame
For telling lies and living on the edge

Oh Mary Jane, oh Mary Jane
I love you still the same
And I hope that you will never leave again
Oh Mary Jane, oh Mary Jane
Don’t throw it all away
And I wonder if you’re coming home for tea (to me)

Your head was full of lovers, and your heart was full of sin
Take a while to look before you leap
I’d somehow heard a rumour and I’d hardly said a word
And all the lies came flowing out again

Oh Mary Jane, oh Mary Jane
I love you still the same
And I hope that you will never leave again
Oh Mary Jane, oh Mary Jane
Don’t throw it all away
And I wonder if you’re coming home for tea (to me)

It’s hard to keep a secret, to the mirror on the wall
I wonder why you’re keeping it at all
You hardly made an effort, but the greatest sin of all
Was telling me you loved me more and more

Oh Mary Jane, oh Mary Jane
I love you still the same
And I hope that you will never leave again
Oh Mary Jane, oh Mary Jane
Don’t throw it all away
And I wonder if you’re coming home for tea (to me)

Oh Mary Jane, oh Mary Jane
I love you still the same
And I hope that you will never leave again
Oh Mary Jane, oh Mary Jane
Don’t throw it all away
And I wonder if you’re coming home for tea (to me)

We Are Born

Written By: Philip Irving

We Are Born
©Philip Irving, 2010

we are born, with a right to our life
we are born, with every right to survive
but if your walked on, talked over
nobody knows who you are

then it’s time, to show the world who you are
don’t deny who you think that you are

we are born, with a right to a name
we are born, inside we’re all just the same
and if your chance comes, rock on
don’t let them hold back your dreams

it’s in the way, that you express everything
don’t delay, cause time is your enemy
if you fight, you often get what you want
but in the night they will come for your thoughts

we are born, with a love that can’t wait
we are born, you know it’s never too late
its like a landslide, fast ride
don’t get misplaced in this storm

and in a way, it can never do you no harm
just work it out, and really know who you are

Believe In You

Believe In You
©Philip Irving, 2010

What ever it takes, someone’s gonna be there for you
What ever you feel, remember only half of its real
Oh baby, your leaving me, you say your gonna leave for a while
You’re going away to get your head straight

What ever you need, ask and it will be there for you
There’s no guarantee, that everything I do will appeal
Oh baby, your leaving me, you say your gonna leave for a while
You’re going away to get your head straight

Oh Oh Oh, I believe in you
Oh Oh Oh, I believe in you
Oh Oh Oh, I believe it’s true
It’s true

Whenever you feel, lonely and don’t know what to do
You know if you call me, a smile will be waiting for you there
Oh baby, your leaving me, you say your gonna leave for a while
You’re going away to get your head straight

Oh Oh Oh, I believe in you
Oh Oh Oh, I believe in you
Oh Oh Oh, I believe it’s true
It’s true

What ever it takes, someone’s gonna be there for you
What ever you feel, remember only half of its real
Oh baby, your leaving me, you say your gonna leave for a while
