Biography

Tam Cassidy was born in Glasgow. He has played music since he was in his late teens when he started off as a drummer, but in order to satisfy a yearning to get up to the front of the stage (they view was better) he eventually picked up a guitar, learned A,E,and D from his dad and basically never put it down again. As a competent rhythm guitarist he began singing and playing with the Coloured Dreams who he co-founded with friend Kevin McGowan. The 'Dreams' endured to last year and after a successful song writing partnership with Kev (see www.myspace.com/coloureddreams), both decided to try something new and so Tam began writing and performing solo.

Over the past few years Tam has concentrated of family and career and is now finding the extra bit of time to continue his musical journey in life. His musical influences include, The Beatles, The Doors, The Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd. Tams music was once described as emotional, raw and honest....well, listen for yourself. He is at his best when performing live either with a full band or on his own with his acoustic. He plays his songs with the same passion on his own in his sitting room, or at a gig to 100+ people. Tam wears his heart on his sleeve when he plays to you and his honesty taps into the emotions we all share and feel inside

If you wana see,
open up your eyes,
Try to find a brand new wy to be complete,
you never know who you might meet

Cos I,
had a big idea
I thought that you would maybe be the one for me
Because oall the things I see

When I look into your eyes
when I hold you in my arms
when I feel you close to me
I feel two strangers become we
but we've both been here before
and now we both know much more
and cos of that I am so sure
your gonna be the one for me

So if you wana sing
If you wana dance
if you wana make abed for us to lye
make a shoulder for us to cry

cos you
have a special way
something I have never sen in anyone,
you make me feel that your the one

When I look into your eyes
when I hold you in my arms
when I feel you close to me
I feel two strangers become we
but we've both been here before
and now we both know much more
and cos of that I am so sure
your gonna be the one for me

(Instrumental)

So if you wana sing
If you wana dance
if you wana make abed for us to lye
make a shoulder for us to cry

Cos I,
had a big idea
I thought that you would maybe be the one for me
Because oll the things I see

When I look into your eyes
when I feel you close to me
when I hold you in my arms
I feel two people become we
but we've both been here before
and now we both know much more
and cos of that I am so sure
your gonna be the one for me

It's All Too Much

Written By: Tam Cassidy

Is there any way to get out of here

cos I don't care any more

Is there any way to destroy my fears

cos I don't care any more

I wana go

Back where I was before

I wana go

Back right now

Cos I don't care anymore

People say hey don't do that

cos I don't care any more

They say I should fight back

But I don't care any more

I wana see

things like I did before

Yea,

Its all too much

And I don't care anymore

Have you seen the men, sitting in the street

They don't care any more

Did you look away, as your eyes did meet

Do you care any more

They tried to be

Someone they were beore


They tried to hard,

And they don't care anymore

Is there any way to get outof here

cos I don't care any more

Is there any way to destroy my fears

cos I don't care any more

I wana go

Back where I was before

I wana go

Back right now

Cos I don't care anymore

I wana go

Back right now

Cos I don't care anymore

I don't care anymore

Do you care anymore

I don't care anymore

I dont care anymore

I dont care anymore

I dont care anymore

I dont care anymore

I live in hope that you will not misunderstand

Some of my actions that were blunders

I hope that you have memories of better plans

And of my love you never wonder


And what you hear about me I have no control

Your thoughts of me full of intrusions

So I have wrote this song so you’ll both always know

And you’ll be under no illusions


That you’re my world and I love you

I’m not the same guy without you

And even though I had to go

I want you both to know

You’re my wo-----rl-------------d


And when I lose my head and go over the top

Please remembers Dads just human

It’s just because I love you both so very much

And of that there’s no disputing


Cos you’re my world and I need you

If you come down to me I’ll always feed you

And the feelings that I’ve had

Have sometimes made me feel so bad

You’re my wo-----rl-------------d

I watch you grow and you both make me so proud

When something happens you take it in your stride

Do you even know how special you both are?

I hope you grab with both hands what life gives you

I’ll always be there as long as I can be

And never be afraid to be just who you are

Cos as far as I can see you both go very far


That you’re my world and I love you

I’m not the same guy without you

And even though I had to go

I want you both to know

You’re my wo-----rl-------------d

Cos you’re my world and I need you


If you come down to me I’ll always feed you

And the feelings that I’ve had

Have sometimes made me feel so bad

You’re my wo-----rl-------------d

You’re my wo-----rl-------------d

You’re my wo-----rl-------------d
