Biography

Stewart Peters

Widely respected as a Singer-Songwriter and producer, Stewart has also written for and produced various Australian performers andvwrites and produces music for tv, radio and film.

A man of many talents - guitar (acoustic, electric, nylon & bass), mandolin, keyboards, drums, producer & songwriter, Stewart also possesses one of the finest examples you will hear of what could best be described as a warm, smooth voice. “ …his voice exerts an intensity that makes you feel like wrapping your arms around the person that is dearest to your heart …”

Cutting his production teeth alongside Vanda & Young (The Easybeats) while employed by Alberts Productions during the '80's, Stewart's skills as a producer are of note (the finest example existing in the chords and grooves of his own music). In the late 80's he established his own facility "Soundshed Recording Studio". Like many others in the industry, he makes his living as a writer & producer of commercial music and soundtracks.

If you like the music of James Taylor, John Mayer, Dave Matthews Band, Sting, Bruce Cockburn or Dan Fogelberg check out Stewart's music.

Lyrics

Laugh at Tomorrow

Written By: Stewart Peters


When the day is broken
and the chance is all done
when the sky is a tumbling – tumbling
you give me strength to move on

Crs
you make it easy to laugh when I’m crying
you make it easy to Laugh At Tomorrow
Tomorrow

scattered dreams and emotions
line the path to your door
but if anyone ever could show me
you hold the key to do more

Crs
you make it easy to laugh when I’m crying
you make it easy to Laugh At
you make it easy to laugh when I’m crying
you make it easy to Laugh At Tomorrow
Tomorrow

M8
tomorrow I’m leaving
there’s nothing more they can say

quiet crs
but you’ll make it easy to laugh when I’m crying
you make it easy to Laugh At Tomorrow
Tomorrow

Crs
you make it easy to laugh when I’m crying
you make it easy to Laugh At
easy to Laugh At
easy to Laugh At
Tomorrow

Lazy Hazy Day

Written By: Stewart Peters


Rolling along on a summer morning
The breeze is warm and the crickets are calling
They say “oo oo oo” ‘cause they know
There’s nothing better to do
Nothing’s moving, noghting’s changed
Come tomorrow I won’t feel the same
But right now I got a Lazy Hazy Day

Drifting along waves are closing in
The girls are hot and the fellas are posing
They go “hey look at me” it’s okay
You know we’re looking at you
They ain’t done nothing’ they’ve climbed no mountain
But they got the pecs and mine’s heading south and
That’s cool, ‘cause I got a Lazy Hazy Day

Can I sing a song and tag along with the moment
Woo hoo hoo whatever comes my way
In a thousdand years, in a thousand lives
I could never get it better, righ here right now
I got a Lazy Hazy Day

So here we are sizzling on the summer sand
We’re getting red and the birds are laughing
They say “coo, you call that play?” yeah, I do!
You think I don’t have a clue
But I’m not moving I won’t change
‘cause come tomorrow I won’t feel this way
right here right now, I got a Lazy Hazy Day

One Good Year

Written By: Stewart Peters


I’m a trier, not a crier
the devils knock me down – I get back up again
‘cause one hot moment and I’ll be going
yeah, I will see my ship come in

Chorus
with just One Good Year and I’ll be one my way
One Good Year and they’ll know my name
I’m a searcher on a restless sea
and One Good Year ‘ll make a man (woman) of me

V2
come in trouble, we know eachother
you’re one true lover I can’t seem to set free
I find some new road & you just follow
won’t you ever let me be

V3
something’s moving, feel it changing
it’s not my choosing, but I’m on for the ride
come tomorrow, hey, there’s my rainbow
God knows I’ve seen enough of rain

Crs
One Good Year,
One Good Year
‘ll make a man of me

Don't Make Me Fall In Love

Written By: Stewart Peters & Snez Dalceska


V1
I’m finding it hard to breathe up there where we meet
way up in the clouds, ‘cause this pictures incomplete

B1
it’s dangerous I know, I know this feeling very well
Don’t Make Me Fall In Love

V2
I disagree boy, I won’t learn to trust like before
I lose another battle, and keep coming back for more

it’s dangerous I know, I know this feeling very well
Don’t Make Me Fall In Love

C1
Still dazed and broken from the many loves before
now you stand before me saying we have so much more
but something inside me says you’re just another fall
Don’t Make Me Fall In Love

V3
It’s complicated boy, when we’re spinning in delight
a kaleidoscope of colours, but these illusions leave us blind

it’s dangerous I know, I know this feeling very well
Don’t Make Me Fall In Love

C2

M8
still piecing it together from the last crazy mess
and wondering if whether that’s the best it ever gets
don’t try to save me, baby, just hold me this way
don’t try to push me harder, you might just push me away

Solo plus M8

Ring Out Those Bells

Ring Out Those Bells

© Stewart Peters 2008

Ring Out Those Bells, Ring Out Those Bells
I’m in love, I’m in love with the worlds most beautiful girl
Hallelujah I’m in love with the worlds most beautiful girl

V1
Well I wake up every morning, she’s smiling at me yawning
Looking like a vision from God, and it’s only me who knows from her head to her toes
She’s love

Runs her fingers ‘round’ my body, nice and kinda naughty
Looking with a love in her eyes
I got love, I got love ain’t nobody needs to tell me
She’s mine, all mine

Chrs

V3
Put a log upon the fire, lames are getting higher
Every day’s a pleasure to spend
There’s a new day coming, I feel I could be something again, again

Art of Self Deception

Written By: Stewart Peters

Art of Self Deception

© Stewart Peters

Keep on howling at the moon,
it will all be over soon
And you’ll know, you’ll know, you know

Chasing rainbows where you’re told
Looking for a pot of gold
But everyone’s a beggar in the end
Everyone’s a beggar

It’s the Art Of Self Deception
It’s too much money too little sense
Art Of Self Deception
And I don’t want to go that way

Bigger house, better deals
Newer style, faster wheels
Work it up, pay it off
Hold it down

Bust your arses for their dream
So what shows for what you’ve been?
You’re only a beginner in the end
You’re only a beginner

It’s the Art Of Self Deception
It’s too much money too little sense
Art Of Self Deception
And I don’t want to go that way

When enough is enough
Any more is too much
And you’re full to the brim
Easy full – huh!

… money in, money out
