Topics I've Started

  1. our own platform

    Posted 20 Mar 2014

    Thanks for all the listens and anyone that took the time to vote, sorry the playing is a wee bit lumpy bit I think it's enough to give you an idea of what I'm trying to capture. The song was written as part of my FAWM 2014 effort.

    our own platform

    There'll be a next train
    We'll get home
    It's so cold
    Take my coat
    Keep you warm
    It's pretty late now
    Everythings closed
    Seems we have
    Our own platform

    We could dance
    We can make
    Like it's a stage
    I'll be Fred
    You be Ginger
    In the rain
    You've got the look
    And I've got the style
    It'll keep us
    Warm for a while

    Over the bridge
    Time and time again
    Wondering which side
    To catch the train
    We missed them all
    Now it's getting late

    Like the litter
    That lies
    On the track
    We'll be
    Picked up
    When they
    Come back
    To start the day

    The hands on the clock
    Haven't moved at all
    Not ticked a tock
    Neither big hand nor small
    The waiting rooms locked
    And I'm beginning to fall

    In love
    In love
    With you
  2. took the man's wager

    Posted 14 Dec 2013

    This song was written as part of this year's 50/90 effort.

    took the man's wager

    Molly they've taken the dog
    And set fire to the barn
    The horses have bolted
    And the Police
    Have surrounded the farm
    Get the shotgun from the kitchen
    And bring me the shells
    For tonight I'm going out shootin
    Then I'm goin tae hell

    Tell the Cops I'm no danger
    And tell them to
    Lay down their arms
    Twas a Clan of bad losers
    Not a drop of honour or charm
    I fought for a wager
    A man they put up
    As their best
    At Musselburgh Races
    I took me auld dog wi me, Jess

    Molly I'm sorry
    I dragged ye intae this mess
    But I took the man's wager
    Tae buy ye yer weddin dress

    It was a stand up they said
    But their man
    He was all in
    Still I bested him twice
    Broke my hand's
    On his head and his chin
    There's a tooth in my head
    And it's not
    Where it should be
    It's buried in my hair
    And it doesn't
    Belong tae me

    They paid me the purse
    Then they took a shine
    Tae the dog
    That's a fine
    Bull Terrier said one
    I'll be taking it home
    If it fight's like the farmer
    It'll make me
    A bob or two
    Then all hell broke loose
    And Auld Jess
    He jumped in there too

    Molly I'm sorry
    I dragged ye intae this mess
    But I took the man's wager
    Tae buy ye yer weddin dress

    The Cops broke it up
    And I spent
    The night in the cell
    Took the dog
    Tae the pound
    And they gave him
    The jail as well
    This is where I've been
    And how I came hame
    in a mess
    But they've come back Molly
    The Cops must have known
    Or guessed

    Go to the front door
    And I'll skip out
    Of the back
    It's an armed response team
    Keep it straight
    And try not to crack
    They can burn the barn
    They can beat me
    Till I'm black and blue
    When you steal my Jess
    You best know
    I'm comin after you

    Molly I'm sorry
    I dragged ye intae this mess
    But I took the man's wager
    Tae buy ye yer weddin dress.
  3. you're perfect

    Posted 24 Oct 2013

    Hi I enetered this song into the Oct 1+1 comp, thought I should share.

    https://soundcloud.c...fect-50-90-2013

    you're perfect

    You're perfect
    Just the way
    You are
    And I can't
    Understand

    Your need to
    Reinvent
    Yourself
    Over and
    Over again

    Do you remember
    The last time
    Another true
    Love ends
    It's the same
    As the first time
    Everything goes
    And you just
    Start again

    Relationships
    They bring you
    Down
    And you
    Can't get up
    And then

    You stay
    In bed
    Weeks at
    A time
    And it don't
    Make no sense

    I know that you're searching
    You'll do anything
    You can
    You change
    What you're wearing
    Dye your hair
    And you're heart
    Just to place it
    In the hands
    Of a man

    Then you ask me
    If you look alright
    How can I tell you
    The words
    Are locked up inside

    I've been
    Your friend
    Since we were five
    I'm really
    More than that

    You'll find
    No love
    Greater
    Than mine
    But I can't
    Seem to find

    The words that I need to
    Say to make
    You mine
    So I wait
    In the shadows
    While you
    Stumble on
    Searching for love
    That is blind

    You're perfect
    Just the way
    You are
    And don't you
    Change
    A thing
  4. these heels are killin me

    Posted 11 Oct 2013

    This song is the second part of a five song series called "danny and jeannie" which tracks the life of an underpriveleged couple living an earthy life in the west of Scotland it is written and presented in this manner. The song was produced by my good friend Davey Stewart who took the original guitar and vocal presentation and kicked it into elsewhere.
