‘Cressida’ Album Song Lyrics


TO PLAY YOUR LITTLE GAME (J.Heyworth)

I face the wall, I can’t recall
Not knowing you,
I must confess I’ll lose my mind
Should I remember you

No room for talk, I’ll take a walk
To free the wheels
I’ll check my list of friendly faces
The answers must be sought

Now I’ll have to face the fact
Soon I’ll realize
I’ll turn around, turn around
To play your little game

Now I’ll have to face the fact
Soon I’ll realize
I’ll turn around, turn around
To play your little game

I thought I had the answer then
I’m on the mend
I turn around, but then you’re gone
Julie was my friend

I face the wall, I can’t recall
Not knowing you,
I must confess I’ll lose my mind
Should I remember you

Now I’ll have to face the fact
Soon I’ll realize
I turn around, turn around
To play your little game

Now I’ll have to face the fact
Soon I’ll realize
I turn around, turn around
To play your little game

WINTER IS COMING AGAIN (J.Heyworth)

In winter will you come to me
And bring with you, the sun to me
In winter will you come
And bring for everyone to see

Winter comes again
Time to think when you’ll send your love to me
Summer is so cold for you
Dress yourselves in leaves of red and blue
In leaves of blue

In summer will you grow for me
The thoughts that now belong to me
In summer you will find
Someone who needs you more than me

Winter comes again
Time to think of when you’ll send your love to me
You’re gonna send you love
Summer is so cold for you
Dress yourselves in leaves of red and blue
In leaves of blue

TIME FOR BED (A.Cullen)

Evening’s coming down, dusk is all around
The sun’s sunk into the sea
While I’ve seen the red now
Black says it’s time for bed

Well, the heat’s been on all the summer long
How happy we’ve been
Now we’re moving on
Got to leave behind that sea

Turn must go round before love is found
Come and see won’t you be
Mine some of the coming time

CRESSIDA (A.Cullen)

In the dark and lonely hours of my time
Silver grey apostles haunt my mind
Preaching parables that all lose down the line
Drowned by ignoramic mankind

Heaven’s red and angry, turn the key
Lock the door of understanding on me
Punishment dealt out bitterly
Unfurl on those who try to see

Silently we are bursting out
Only talking but we want to shout
Must tell the people what it’s all about
Must tell the people what it’s all about

All…my…life…I see…

HOME AND WHERE I LONG TO BE (J.Heyworth)

Beneath this mask of gold there lies a tale untold
This tale’s so deep that I’ve been carrying all my life
I can’t release my thoughts, like in a frozen dream
It must be building up like water fills a stream

Home and where I long to be
Is all the world behind a shady mask of green, blue and gold
Clouds are all I seem to see
Can I not find you in the misty dawn of green, blue and gold

You see a wall of space, a wall that has no door
A door would open up the secrets of my mind
I try to climb way high, but this would claim defeat
I must prepare myself for any wild desires of your own

Here within my coat of blue
I stand presenting all for you to see and feel, touch and hold
Remember I’m not to be disturbed
If you control your words you’ll share my mask of green, blue and gold

DEPRESSION (A.Cullen)

The colors of living, to your mind are so fine
When revealed they’re just as stale as mine
So climb down my baby, leave the sun and moon to shine
Take a tip from the annals of time

Your momma sent under, your papa lives again
My baby will save me, from the roots of depression setting in

Depression my come down
The lesson, is a teaching of time

ONE OF A GROUP (P.Jennings)

You write on bits of paper, a verse that never ends
You know you missed the reason, why she never was your friend
You tramped on the lillies, while dancing to the sun
And the seventh wind has stolen, the songs you never sung

The rising tide of milk and honey flowing round and round
Light of day and dark of night they merge without a sound

Take a look behind you at things you’ve never seen
It’s not that time is running out, it’s just the sand between
Innocence betrayed you, of that you know you’re sure
Snow White has tumbled from your dreams again

Inventor of a multitude of things that never see the light
Of day or is it night you’re not so very sure
Look to this marble mirror, you can’t believe it when
They say you’ve aged a decade in your last few years

Take a look behind you at things you’ve never seen
It’s not that time is running out, it’s just the sand between
Innocence betrayed you, of that you know you’re sure
Snow White has tumbled from your dreams again

LIGHTS IN MY MIND (J.Heyworth)

When all the lights in my mind start to realise your name
I can see the world now form like a beautiful dream
But I’ve never been hypnotized by memories so far away
Though I hope someday, you’ll come and you’ll hear what I say

It’s not a big thing to ask if you will come to me tonight
You should be the lonely one, and maybe then you’d see
Well every time I hear your name I can’t expect to keep control
You made me feel so bad, oh I wanna go free

The pleasure is mine and always will be
Never before have I felt this way
The pleasure is mine and always will be
I need your loving every day

When all the lights in my mind start to realise your name
I can see the world now form like a beautiful dream
But I’ve never been hypnotized by memoryies so far away
You made me feel so bad, oh I wanna go free

THE ONLY EARTHMAN IN TOWN (J.Heyworth)

And when the morning sunlight drives out the darkness of the night
I see you then at the corner of my eye
The shadows on the mountain form in the letters of your name
I hear you then as you face the morning sky

And as you come alive, I feel the sun so warm
You run to greet me, the river runs so long

As all pride amongst the masses disappears and drifts away
I just sit and watch the level of confusion in the day
In the anger of the morning, screaming o’er the Southern hills
Come the Emporers of hope to seek my guidance and they wiil

Many come the clouds upon us closing up the Earth
Silently the rain commands us, “run before you drown”

As the moonless night approaches, I reflect upon my thoughts
When the moment of refusal seems to departed
So while the truth is all rejected, this you cannot understand
But accept the false condemning those who waited in the land

Many come the clouds upon us closing up the Earth
Silently the rain commands us, “run before you drown”

SPRING ’69 (A.Cullen)

The mists of change begin to clear
The dark of ages disappears
The buds are back, the leaves are here
The thought of Summer’s more than I can bear.

Crying in a man I know is wrong
It’s just that winter’s been so long
And everything’s been going wrong
The Summer brings such hope within Spring’s song.

If things come soon, as soon they must
I promise myself to clear the dust
That’s building up inside my head
Shrinking the rope of life into this fraying thread.

The mists of change begin to clear
The dark of ages disappears
The buds are back, the leaves are here
The thought of Summer’s more than I can bear.

DOWN DOWN (J.Heyworth)

Destiny is found in the world
Down down, down down, down down
Need of all this peace long of old
Down down, down down, down down

Coming over land in the sky
Down down, down down, down down
Filling up the air with the sound
Down down, down down, down down

TOMORROW IS A WHOLE NEW DAY (I.Clark)

The times we have lived in have taken their toll
The cannons have sounded and the drums thee have rolled
But things are changing and soon we will find
The people will speak and they’ll bring peace of mind
Yes you’ll find

Yesterday’s gone while today won’t last long
Tomorrow who knows where we’ll be
For once in this life, we must face the strife
And never deny we’re not free
First we will blind the unseeing eye
That looks down on us night and day
No more will we fear the unhearing ear
That listens to all that we say

Summer is ending, peace is descending
We can all count what we’re going to give
The future is ours, we are the powers
Tomorrow’s a whole new day to live

‘Asylum’ Album Song Lyrics


ASYLUM (A.Cullen)

Lunatic Larry beating his head on the wall
Soon it will fall, counting his fans on ‘Take Your Pick”
Brick by brick
Television’s the wall on the left
He’s seen it all
Ahead there’s a beautiful beach and the sea
He’s dreamed it all
Behind there’s a bottomless rumbling pit
He’s feared it all
Lunatic Larry is one who isn’t sure who to be – he doesn’t know

Lunatic Larry beating his head on the wall
Soon it will fall, counting his fans on ‘Take Your Pick”
Brick by brick

MUNICH (P.Jennings)

Playpen of the young with so much money to spend
Have you got some time to lend to me ?
I’m pleading ignorance so show me all, take me in
Before I get lost in my private sea
I’d like to join the circus for a round of fun
I’m very young but willing to learn
So much life flying by in your eyes
Something tells me that it’s my turn

Please don’t turn away as I’ve got something going free
A sensitive appeal to melt you down
I think that I’m involved in musical comedy
All I know is that it’s slowly killing me

I’ll drink my wine and you can take my hand
As long as you are soft and gentle please
And take it slow I have to feel my way
Intensely into every atmosphere
I’ll drink my wine and you can take my hand
As long as you are soft and gentle please
And take it slow I have to feel my way
Intensely into every atmosphere

I suppose that I should leave things well alone, go on home
I’ll have to tell my mother why I’ve been away so long, been away so long

Taken unawares, so afraid of how I’d fare
Now I can really say I know cause I’ve been there
If I am to share your bed
I share your head as well

Am I reading into this more than is really there ?
Do I really care ?
Is it just the aura of everything combined
Clogging up my mind ?
Mitigating circumstances are you see to blame
Though it’s all the same
Now I can really say I know cause I’ve been there
Know cause I’ve been there, I’ve been there

GOODBYE POST OFFICE TOWER GOODBYE (A.Cullen)

Open to discussion
Were the moguls from the top
I didn’t want a failure
And they didn’t want a flop
So I drew the plans up carefully
With the strength in the design
And I signed it with my signature
To show that it was mine

But I waited all that morning
And I waited all the next
Preparing for an interview
By reading from the text
But they didn’t get my letter
So they couldn’t really tell
So I made this bomb for the GPO
To blow them all to Hell
To blow them all to Hell
To blow them all to Hell

SURVIVOR (A.Cullen)

Money grabbing people are an evil evil
And seeing and believing aren’t equal the secret
Of a life isn’t loving or hating no more
It’s all down to knowing to knowing how it is score
Undercut a neightbour and take home a fiver
Hit with your free hand and they’ll take a diver
Survivor, you know how to live?
You’d steal from a beggar
Just to make something give

LISA (A.Cullen)

Lisa baby, now’s the time,
you know within your heart
It isn’t only in your mind,
you’ve got to move, to make a start
Get up and say, forget those ways
they’re no concern of mine
I know it’s as you’ve friends in there,
but they don’t mind, leave them behind

They’re not fretting over you
So don’t lose sleep for them
Better to lose five bad friends
And with one good one, start again

So move out now, distract your thoughts
Forget the threat that’s near
You’re what you need, a place to stay
I’m sorry dear, you can’t stay here

They’re not fretting over you
So don’t lose sleep for them
Better to lose five bad friends
And with one good one, start again

SUMMER WEEKEND OF A LIFETIME (A.Cullen)

Summer weekend of a lifetime
Brightened up the whole damned year
You and I walk through the treelines
Both the children followed near
The château grounds were warm and sleepy
But for summer’s humming sense
Snoopy loomed among the bushes
Hunting down imagined deer

I felt for you infatuated
Feelings wakened by the sun
A tenderness I thought was ended and had long since gone

Just a meeting chanced on walking
Hoping down that shady park
Thank you for that reawakening
Thank you for returning love

LET THEM COME WHEN THEY WILL (J.Heyworth)

Come, now, come with me
Look around and you’ll see what I mean
I can’t help thinking what to say
I have this problem every day with you

If you stay with me
You’ll wonder why you never came here before
You’ll maybe want to come again
If you do, just tell me – I’ll be there

Tell the nation, all about the other world
Tell the people, let them come when they will
Soft vibrations, from a place that everyone needs
Tell the people, let them come when they will

Here… here now they come
They… want to do what has to be… done
If they leave, I’m back again,
see them running through the streets
In the early morning,
clutching on with the sunlight
Morning air brings love, love, love…
if they, they, they… if they leave…
Turn back, tell them, catch the sun,
and then cease, you’re the one
That won’t see peace,
tell them of the falling into fallen players…
Have your love come into me, lover,
falling into smaller times, I will hurl… again…
And now…

Tell the nation, all about the other world
Tell the people, let them come when they willParagraph

Soft vibrations, from a place that everyone needs
Tell the people, let them come when they will
