My Past Times

Written By: Mick McAndrew/Ken Morris

My Past Times

When I look back
there are many faces
I could probability
list every name
along each road
so many changes the circle shifts
nothing remains the same

In my past times
I had been searching
the way to go
not so obviously clear
I had been restless
in my past times
but calm has come since you’ve been here

I’ve taken my stand
I have taken my chances
I have been foolish
oh I have been wrong
but all things must pass and
run out their courses
the darkness lifts
a new day comes along

In my past times
I had been searching
the way to go
not so obviously clear
I had been restless
In my past times
but calm has come
since you’ve been here

Seen you’ve been here
I’m less tormented
I have more reason
Yes I find many more rhymes
my once shaky world
is now well centred
so far away
from my past times

My troubled mind it is
It is at ease now
I have a care about
What I do and what I say
Some things I hold
above and beyond value
those precious gifts
I count them every day

Against My Better Judgement

Written By: Mick McAndrew

Against my better Judgement

You swept in like a whilrwind
And every head was turned
Venus smile Valkyrie eyes
The sleight of hand you learned

Against my better Judgement
It’s foolish but its true true true
Against my better Judgement
I still hold a torch for you

My friends they keep on telling me
That you’re no good for me
After due consideration
I can’t help but agree

Against my better Judgement
It’s foolish but its true true true
Against my better Judgement
I still hold a torch for you

No stranger to destruction
I carry that disease
that deep defect I can’t correct
That brings me to my knees

Against my better Judgement
It’s foolish but its true true true
Against my better Judgement
I still hold a torch for you


And it’s not a fairy story
And it won’t have a fairy tale ending
This train is not bound for glory
so why do we keep pretending?

A trail of vast commotion
you scatter in your wake
remains of broken promises
all made by mistake

Against my better Judgement
It’s foolish but its true true true
Against my better Judgement
I still hold a torch for you
