Your kick, my pain


Your kick, my pain…




Finger picking electric guitar, rhythm builds to a sudden crash of drums. (hard rock style intro)then a soft pulse guitar into v1.


V1
It must have been funny…..
Or did you have other agendas to name……?
That constant look of satisfaction…….
A smug pride….in fulfilling your game…..

V2
Had you meant to hurt me…..?
Or had you merely enjoyed the chase…….?
Something beguiling and yet deceitful…..
Was always……present in your face…….


Electric organ medley for 8 bars.
Falling into the chorus



Chorus:-
(In the style of Seahorses- standing on your head)

So tell me darling……
Was this betrayer…..once the betrayed…….?
I thought you believed…… like me…..
We lie in the beds that we’ve made…..
If this were an act of love……
Then why does my heart break……..?
All I can see is hopeless……
You got all your kicks……
And all I got……
                                      Is pain…….n…….n……..n…..!

(Musical rift)

                                      So much pain……..n……n……n….!


 (Mid 8)


V3
How do you sleep soundly………
When your actions tell another story……..?
You pretend that truth is master……..
But lying baby……is where I feel your glory……


Chorus:-

So tell me darling……
Was this betrayer…..once the betrayed…….?
I thought you believed…… like me…..
We lie in the beds that we’ve made…..
If this were an act of love……
Then why does my heart break……..?
All I can see is hopeless……
You got all your kicks……
And all I got……
                                      Is pain…….n…….n……..n…..!

                                      So much pain……..n………n…….n……!
                                      So much bloody pain……..n……..n……..n……..!

(continue power and thrust of guitars, begin fade out after 8 bars)

Enough !


Enough.!




(Begins with a drum medley/cymbals tapping.. Guitar buidls strength over a rousing noise to lift the melody quickly to a frim pulsing beat…. Then explosion…..)
(16 bars)

(softer pulse)

V1
So who really knows……..
Just where the wind……where the wind will blow……?
Life has a way of fooling……
With the things we ought to know……..


V2
Take me to adventures………
Where we’ll dance……..dance upon the sands……..
Save me from my doubts….
Always safe within your hands……


Chorus:-
And in me now……..
The powers rising……..up……
A chance to escape…..
All the doubt….inside my mind…..
Breathe and fill my heart….
For love is everywhere…….
I ……… am…….. enough…..
Yeah…. Enough…… with some to spare…..


(symphony comes in to wash over the listener and create ethereal grace)

(Mid 8)


(softer pulse)
V3
Time is a healer……..
There’s a place…….. place to walk in the sun……
Away from the past…….
Keep me safe within the light……

V4
Let go of the feeling…….
I have learned……… learned to live again……..
Building love is appealing…….
I’m a king…. I think you’ll find……



Chorus:-
And in me now……..
The powers rising……..up……
A chance to escape…..
All the doubt….inside my mind…..
Breathe and fill my heart….
For love is everywhere…….
I ……… am…….. enough…..
Yeah…. Enough…… with some to spare…..


(Then a slowing pulse… rhythm cools and into)
(Spoken)

The world would have you believe, that you are not enough.
You are! You are! You are!
They make you fear living, to take away your power.
Please believe in yourselves.
You are enough and always are!!!!

(fade music)

Where is Love?


Where is LOVE ?



(Tambourine ringing, soft drums build into keyboard, gradually building rhythm to V1)
(16 bar)

V1
Some days all we have is fear…
The world we knew is dying…….
A chance to live, no longer clear…
Those in power….. just won’t stop their lying…..

V2
What’s gone wrong with humans being?
Why is lasting peace so hard to find……?
When will it be love we’re seeing……?
Instead of wars…… that hurt mankind………


(Tempo builds and percussion demands a pulse of love like a wave.)

Chorus:-
So…..please help me brother……
Restore my faith in human kindness….
So…..please show me sister……
The hope to believe there is a way………..
So…….please come on people…..
Fill up my understanding……….
Imagine a brighter day coming……
And show us all……..
                             Where is the love….!

(Mid 8)

V3
The choice we make…..really ours….
Take power into our own hands……
Don’t give in to the oppression……
Do the work…… that love demands…….

V4
Fill our world with sounds of laughter….
Be the change you wish to see……..
Don’t let hatred keep oppressing……
Keep giving love…….and be set free……


Chorus:-
So…..please help me brother……
Restore my faith in human kindness….
So…..please show me sister……
The hope to believe there is a way………..
So…….please come on people…..
Fill up my understanding……….
Imagine a brighter day coming……
And show us all……..
                             Where is the love….!
Chorus:-
So…..please help me brother……
Restore my faith in human kindness….
So…..please show me sister……
The hope to believe there is a way………..
So…….please come on people…..
Fill up my understanding……….
Imagine a brighter day coming……
And show us all……..
                             Where is the love….!


*Then:-*

LOVE is stronger…….
LOVE is fairer…………
LOVE is how we’re meant to be…..
LOVE is brighter……
LOVE is grander……
BE the LOVE you wish to see………..

Outshone the Sun

       Outshone the Sun



Music follows the sound of a cock crowing in the foreground. Then a regular rhythmical drum beat, shortish strums on the guitar building over 16 bars into verse 1.

V1
Oh yeah today……….. I learned a secret……..
Heaven……….lost an angel…….
Before the sun……….shone in the sky………
An image………..of such perfection……….
For her light……..just made me cry…….
Oh la la la la la la la….
For her light……..just made me cry…….

V2
So now……….. I want to touch her……..
To let………this feeling conquer………
Not let it………. Walk on bye………
I’m believing……… on a daydream……
I’ve gotta hope…….. I’ve gotta try………
Oh la la la la la la la….
Gotta hope……… just gotta try……

Chorus:
Oh I….I……I…..I didn’t know desire………
Before I’d looked into her eyes…….
I hadn’t lived at all……..
Until this feeling took control……
The power of her smile……
Brought love into my heart……..
I’m lost and blind I surrender……
……  ‘cos she outshone….the sun……..

(Build to a crescendo at the end of chorus, then returns to a regular rhythm…)

V3
I am humbled……. Now I hold her…….
Hotter……… than any desert…..
For I melt……….  beneath such grace……..
She………… just can’t be mortal………
Or……… I’d have seen it in her face……….
Oh la la la la la la la…
I’d have seen……… it in her face…….

(Mid 8)
Guitars create a dreamscape, wistful…meandering and soulful…..

V4
A breath…….. I fail to surrender………
My emotions……… running wild blue yonder………
Her beauty……… brought me to my knees………….
For she’s……… the one I worship……….
And her name……….. carried on the breeze…….
Oh la la la la la la la….
Her name………. was carried on the breeze………

Chorus:
Oh I….I……I…..I didn’t know desire………
Before I’d looked into her eyes…….
I hadn’t lived at all……..
Until this feeling took control……
The power of her smile……
Brought love into my heart……..
I’m lost and blind I surrender……
……  ‘cos she outshone….the sun……..

Yes she still outshines the sun……………..

That has gone before.

That has gone before.

In the style of Run by Snow Patrol.
A slow paced powerfully epic ballad!
Electric piano, cello, violins and guitars.

V1
For I am seeing…..
The desire behind your smile….
And I can feel……
The passion for love within your heart…..
My pulse is racing…..
And I’m in love’s paradise……
Being held by you…..
Is just like a brand new start………

(8 bar)
Musical fill in building excitement to:-

V2
I know I’m falling….
Something feels so easy….familiar…
My eyes now weep….
A memory that has gone before….
Your eyes tell me….
That you understand this connection……
Believe me my darling….
I’ve never ever… wanted you more……….

Chorus :-
‘Cos you bring me light……. (yeah …yeah)
And I’m bathed in sunshine…..
You give me hope……… (ooh….)
That you’ll always be mine……
I crave your closeness…..
You’re so warm and tender……
I need your love……. (yeah …yeah)
Always… and for all time…….
(repeat?) I need your love……. (yeah …yeah)
Always… and for all time…….

(Mid 8)
16 bars
Long instrumental, orchestral symphony.

V3
If there is perfect…..
Then it is surely you…….
I need you near me…..
Without you… life has no meaning……
All that I’ve learned…..
Would have been for nothing….
For without you…..
I’d still be lost and dreaming……

Chorus :-
‘Cos you bring me light……. (yeah …yeah)
And I’m bathed in sunshine…..
You give me hope……… (ooh….)
That you’ll always be mine……
I crave your closeness…..
You’re so warm and tender……
I need your love……. (yeah …yeah)
Always… and for all time…….
(repeat?) I need your love……. (yeah …yeah)
Always… and for all time…….

EPIC

               EPIC

               (Sing to yourself and hold on!)


Pop Oasis style, inspired by free thinking and
 a desire to higher expression of love !

V1
Though I pale..
Behind the images of love….
All these heroes..
Some working class… others not….
The light still shines…..
The power of love…
Immortal……… a sound still ringing….
Their voices breathe…..
Love and kindness….. singing……

Chorus:-
Nothing lasts forever
Please understand and believe….
The power is yours
To share the love…….
((Echo) To share the love together
Share a smile to shine…..)
No-one owns you
So make your mark on the world…..
Give it your best
Sing to yourselves and hold on…..!

V2
We are flesh
But as immortal as love….
Everyone’s a hero
If we give it all we’ve got…..
Beauty knows no confines
The endless skies above
Everlasting….. our voices ringing……
To be the change
The greatest song we’re singing…..

(Mid 8)
16 bars
Drums heavy, lots of cymbals and guitars long strumming, rocky with reverb.

To live forever
Own the image of love….
A true peoples hero
Shall never ever be forgot….
Come the better times
And never be ashamed
Together…… our voices bringing……
Peace and love
The song we keep on singing……

Nothing lasts forever
Please understand and believe….
The power is yours
To share the love…….

Share a smile to shine…..)

Reflected in the mirror.

Reflected in the mirror.



V1
Who’s the man
        He sees in the mirror ?.......
Just a person
        Struggling to be the change…….
What becomes
        Of the life we’ve cherished…….
When we deny
        Love… and become estranged ?......

V2
Moon he walked
        As if made of magic……
What a soul
        That had brought music and song……
Once a dream
        Would take us into spirit……
Where we’d remember
        How to live as if all one……..

Chorus:-
And he sang love…. Love….. blessings….
He proved the value of his words alive……
Love… love… love becoming………
A new direction in our eyes…….
Love…… peace…… and understanding…..
Always a hope….. that we’d still realise…..

(Mid 8)
16 bars

V3
How he’d wanted
        That we’d know a contentment…..
And feel alive
        With the joy somehow to find…..
He brought us belief
        For a chance yet to conquer……
And passion filling
        All spaces within our minds…..

Chorus:-
And he sang love…. Love….. blessings….
He proved the value of his words alive……
Love… love… love becoming………
A new direction in our eyes…….
Love…… peace…… and understanding…..
Always a hope….. that we’d still realise…..

V4
Still he’s watching
        What we made of living…….
So full of giving
        In his messages we’re free…..
Time waits for no-one
        See how the Earth is still bleeding….
Reminding us all
        To be the change we wish to see……
Chorus:-
And he sang love…. Love….. blessings….
He proved the value of his words alive……
Love… love… love becoming………
A new direction in our eyes…….
Love…… peace…… and understanding…..
Always a hope….. that we’d still realise…..

Chorus:-
And he sang love…. Love….. blessings….
He proved the value of his words alive……
Love… love… love becoming………
A new direction in our eyes…….
Love…… peace…… and understanding…..
Always a hope….. that we’d still realise…..




This song is dedicated to and inspired by the incredible person, the legend that is,
Michael Jackson.
