HALF OF MY LIFE Song lyric 156

I searched for you all day X 4
I don’t know what to say
I searched for you all day
Come back here and stay.
I searched for you all day.

I lay awake all night X 4
You gave me such a fright.
I lay awake all night,
I never know what’s right
I lay awake all night.

I stuck with you all year X 4
I thought you were sincere.
I stuck with you all year
And now you disappear.
I stuck with you all year.

HALFWAY ROUND THE WORLD Song lyric 089

Oceans apart, yet home from home
Whichever side of the globe we’re located
You seek my undivided attention,
Satisfied, pacified and placated
From halfway round the world.

Missing you when only on vacation
Like you’ve permanently emigrated.
It seems just like everything in life is
Distorted, unreal and exaggerated.
You’re halfway round the world. .

HALFWAY UP A LADDER Song lyric 090

I am halfway up a ladder,
Picking apples from a tree
I am taking extra care
Selecting the best for you and me.

When I climb down to the first rung,
Returned to earth from high above
Don’t upset the apple cart
The orchard might resent our love.

I am halfway up a ladder
Picking cherries from the boughs
I am going to treat you
To the best that life allows.

HEAD CASE Song lyric 161

Are there hairs growing in the palms of your hands?

Can you see spots in front of your eyes?

Do you bang your head when annoyed with your self?

Do you jump up and down without a pogo stick?

Have you been standing in the noon day sun?

Do you hear voices inside your head when you’re alone?

HOMESPUN PHILOSOPHY Song lyric 179

Whosoever wondered if there was any truth in old wives’ tales
Had never considered the wind being taken from their sails,
Nor could they envisage being out-manoeuvred by tacticians
Intent on level-headed natural results of their decisions,
Stemming from a way of life where basics predominate.
Where reality prevails and objects are inanimate.

Whosoever determined to exceed all their expectations
Had never conjured up such optimistic computations,
Nor accumulated wisdom, wit and knowledge
That emanates from the professional college,
Meditating radically but moderate in complicity,
Homespun philosophy equals cottage industry simplicity.

HOOD OF THE HIGHWAYMAN Song lyric 119

‘’Your money or your life’’.
Voice ringing in the coachman’s ears
And the sight of pistol and knife
Caused a surge of passenger’s fears.
The cape and hood of the hughwayman
Conceal his features.
One day someone will unmask the most
Fearsome of creatures.

‘’Stand and deliver’’.
Words stunned innocent civilians
As their nerves went all a-quiver
They were relieved of their millions..
The cape and hood of the highwayman
Conceal his features.
One day someone will unmask the most
Fearsome of creatures.

HOT HEAD Song lyric 015

I can sense the aggression in your tone.
I can sense it every time I telephone.
You’re not spiteful cruel or mean.
Why be angry and cause such a scene?

I can try to outsmart my rival’s games’
I can win without staking any claims
You’re still faithful, loyal and kind.
Take no notice of the one- track mind.
I hope that I’m not misunderstood.
Hot-head, things are getting good.

Hot-head, try to keep cool.
Hot-head try to stay calm.
Hot-head, try to keep cool.
Hot-head, don’t sound the alarm.
