SHY

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(LATE MEETING)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

YOUR EYES WATCH ME CLOSELY

YOUR EXPRESSION CHANGES

BUT I AM A SHY ONE

SO TELL ME WHAT IÕVE DONE

TO DESERVE ALL YOUR ATTENTION

MAY I ASK JUST WHY ME

IS THERE SOMETHING SPECIAL

A SPECIAL QUALITY

 

WELL, PERHAPS AS IÕM QUIET AND RESERVED

SO YOU MIGHT EXPECT THAT I WOULD BECOME UNNERVED

BY THE SITUATION

 

FUNNY, BUT I FEEL SO DIFFÕRENT

USUALLY IÕM TOO SHY

BUT THIS TIME I WILL TRY

TO DISPEL THOSE BUTTERFLIES

 

(from bridge)

WELL, PERHAPS AS IÕM QUIET AND RESERVED

SO YOU MIGHT EXPECT THAT I WOULD BECOME UNNERVED

BY THE SITUATION

 

IÕM SHY, BUT ON THIS OCCASION

QUITE COINCIDENTALLY

IÕVE FOUND SOMEBODY

WHOÕS EQUALLY AS SHY AS ME

 

 

 

 

BUSY ME

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(TUESDAY EVENING)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

SIMPLY BECAUSE IÕM COOL AND COLLECTED

IT DOESNÕT MEAN IÕVE RUN OUT OF IDEAS

GOTTA SEE ALL THE BEAUTY SPOTS IN THE WORLD

SUCH AS VENICE BEFORE IT DISAPPEARS

 

WENT INTO TOWN TO BUY AIRLINE TICKETS

BUT I COULD NOT DECIDE JUST WHERE TO FLY

COLD IN THE NORTH AND MUCH TOO HOT IN THE SOUTH

GUESS IÕLL GET AROUND TO DOINÕ IT BYE AND BYE

 

LIKE TO ESCAPE FROM THOSE DAILY PROBLEMS

THEYÕRE BETTER LEFT TO SOMEONE ELSE, NOT ME

SURELY IT WOULD BE SUCH A PITY TO MISS

ALL THE PLEASURES OF INACTIVITY

 

DAY AFTER DAY MY LIFEÕS AN ADVENTURE

IÕM ALWAYS GOINÕ NOWHERE HURRIEDLY

IT ISNÕT HARD TO PICK ME OUT IN A CROWD

BUSY ME, DOINÕ NOTHINÕ CONSTANTLY

 

CODA

BUSY ME, DOINÕ NOTHINÕ CONSTANTLY

USING NO ENERGY

AND THATÕS OKAY BY ME

 

 

 

 

LIVING IN LIMBO

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(IN MAY)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

SINCE WE MET YOU ALWAYS SAY ŌTOMORROWĶ

ALL I WANT TO KNOW IS SHOULD I STAY, SHOULD I GO

TIME TO WAKE UP, THE DAYS ARE SPEEDING PAST

IÕM LIKE A SAILING BOAT WITHOUT A MAST

WHAT TIME DOES IT GO DARK

AND AM I IN A DESERT OR A GREEN PARK

YOUÕVE GOT ME LIVING MY LIFE IN LIMBO

WONÕT YOU PLEASE TELL ME YES OR NO

 

 

WHEN YOU LAUGH IS IT BECAUSE IÕM FUNNY

SORRY, AS I SEE IT THIS IS NO COMEDY

EITHER IÕM ON A TRIP WITHOUT AN END

OR TIME WILL TELL, BUT TIME IS NOT MY FRIEND

SHADOWS GROWING SO LONG

BUT AT THIS TIME OF DAY THE SHADOWS FEEL WRONG

YOUÕVE GOT ME LIVING MY LIFE IN LIMBO

ITÕS A PLACE YOU DONÕT WANT TO KNOW

 

 

 

 

IÕM HERE

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(BOAT TRIP)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

DID YOU THINK IÕD FALL FOR THAT EXCUSE?

YOU MUST TAKE ME FOR A FOOL

YOU THINK YOUÕRE A GOD BUT YOUÕRE NO ZEUS

SÕCUSE ME IF I SOUND CRUEL

 

I TRY TO BELIEVE IN YOU AND TO TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY

BUT THEN WHY DO YOU DISAPPEAR MYSTERIOUSLY?

 

I WANT YOUR ATTENTION ALL THE TIME

REALLY SHOW YOU CARE

WHISPER WORDS OF LOVE AND DONÕT JUST MIME

IÕM NOT OVER THERE, IÕM HERE

 

I HAVE WAITED LONG FOR YOU TO CHANGE

THINK IÕVE WAITED LONG ENOUGH

MUST SAY YOUR BEHAVIOUR IS STRANGE

SORRY IF I SOUND TOUGH

 

SEEMS YOU LIKE TO DISAGREE AND TO HAVE THE UPPER HAND

ALL MY GOOD IDEAS, THEY ALL RUN OUT IN THE SAND

 

DO YOU WANT TO MAKE A BRAND NEW START?

YOU ARE NOT YET IN THE CLEAR

BUT YOUÕLL HAVE TO SOFTEN UP YOUR HEART

DONÕT TREAT ME LIKE AIR, IÕM HERE

 

 

 

 

ABSOLUTELY YOU

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(APRIL WALK)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

INDIVIDUALITY CAN BE FUN

(A)MONG A HUNDRED THERE ALWAYS IS ONE

YOU ARE DIFFÕRENT FROM THE REST

STAND OUT IN THE CROWD, AT THAT YOU ARE BEST

IN THIS WORLD OF OURS VARIATIONS ARE SO FEW

BUT YOUÕRE ABSOLUTELY YOU

 

TRAFFIC HAS TO STOP WHEN YOU CROSS THE ROAD

YOU INVENTED YOUR OWN HIGHWAY CODE

NOT AN ENERGETIC TYPE

YOU WILL MAKE YOUR MOVE WHEN THE TIME IS RIPE

DOESNÕT MATTER IF ALL THE THINGS THEY SAY ARE TRUE

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY YOU

 

MAKINÕ UP YOUR MIND IS NO EASY THING

OF INDECISION YOU ARE THE KING

THINGS WILL ALWAYS TURN OUT RIGHT

THEREÕS NO NEED TO FUSS, SET THE WORLD ALIGHT

NOBODY EVER SEEMS TO SHARE YOUR POINT OF VIEW

ÔCAUSE ITÕS ABSOLUTELY YOU

 

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF ONE DAY YOU DECIDE

THAT YOUR LIFE-STYLE IS UNDIGNIFIED

THIS WOULD BE A POORER PLACE

IF YOU JOINED IN THE UNIVERSAL RACE

WE NEED PEOPLE WHO NEVER KNOW WHAT NOT TO DO

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY YOU

 

 

 

 

SUNRISE ON THE MOON

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(SKETCH)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

SO STRANGE TO BE HERE WITH A LOVE AS NEW

AS THE MORNING DEW

YOUR HAND WAS HELD OUT, BECKONING ME

I FOLLOWED YOU, WHAT WOULD BE WOULD BE

WE CLIMBED TO A GREATER HEIGHT

TO START OUR JOURNEY INTO THE NIGHT 

 

WE CAME TO A PLACE BETWEEN EARTH AND SKY

AND BEGAN TO FLY

THE LIGHT FROM THE MOON SHOWED US THE WAY

WHERE WE COULD BE AMONG STARS AT PLAY

THERE WAS NO ONE ELSE AROUND

AND ALL THE TIME WE DIDNÕT MAKE A SOUND

 

YOU SPOKE ALL THE WORDS THAT I HOPED TO HEAR

AS YOU HELD ME NEAR

WE MOVED TO THE SOUNDS OF DISTANT WAVES

BREAKING ON SHORES AND THEN INTO CAVES

JUST WHERE IN THE WORLD IS THIS

PERHAPS ITÕS SO IÕM LOST IN A KISS

 

WEÕRE UP IN THE CLOUDS, YET MY VISIONÕS CLEAR

OCEANS SOON APPEAR

BUT THIS CANNOT LAST, IT HAS TO END

DOWN, FALLING DOWN, STARTING TO DESCEND

MY DREAMÕS OVER MUCH TOO SOON

THE NIGHT WE DANCED TILL SUNRISE ON THE MOON

 

Coda

WHEN WE DANCED TILL SUNRISE ON THE MOON

 

 

 

 

SEASONS OF THE HEART

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(EARLY MEETING)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

WINTER, SUMMER, SPRING AND FALL WE KNOW

THEY HAVE A WAY OF CHANGING OUR LIVES

SEASONS OF THE HEART, THEY ALSO COME AND GO

FROM THEM OUR HAPPINESS DERIVES

 

RAIN AND TEARS GO OFTEN HAND IN HAND

THE AUTUMN LEAVES CAN MAKE YOU SO SAD

SUMMER WINDS THAT BLOW ACROSS THE SEA AND LAND

CAN HELP TO CHANGE YOUR MOOD TO GLAD

 

EVÕRY SEASON SHOULD BE LIKE A FRIEND

BUT SOMETIMES LIFE CAN LOSE ALL ITS STING

NOW EACH DAY I ASK WHEN WILL THIS WINTER END

AND SUDDENLY ITÕS HERE - ITÕS SPRING

 

 

 

 

JUST WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(PIECE IV)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

I WAS ALWAYS CONSIDERED EARTHBOUND

TELL ME THIS, JUST WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, TURNING MY LIFE ALL AROUND

EVÕRY DAY I KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I WOULD DO

NOW I HAVE NO PLANS,

ITÕS OUT OF MY HANDS

EVÕRYTHINGÕS UP TO YOU

 

WE CAN WALK WITHOUT CARES IN THE RAIN

WHEN I LAUGH OVER SOMETHING THAT YOU SAID I NEVER HAVE TO EXPLAIN

THERE ARE THOSE WHOÕLL SAY THAT MY SHIP HAS GONE AGROUND

MY BRIDGES ARE CROSSED

AND THOUGH I AM LOST

I DONÕT WANT TO BE FOUND

 

I HAVE NEVER BEEN OUT OF CONTROL

NOW I KNOW WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO LOVE SOMEBODY BODY AND SOUL

I WILL PLAY YOUR SONG AS THOUGH I WAS YOUR GUITAR

I NEED NO EXAM

TO KNOW WHO I AM

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE

 

 

 

 

NO SUCH THING

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(THANKS)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

ALL IN LIFE IS AN ILLUSION

WE CREATE THE IMAGES IN OUR PICTURE BOOK

CHOOSE THE COLOURS IN PROFUSION

PAINT THE WORLD IN A DIFFÕRENT SHADE, WITH A DIFFÕRENT LOOK

 

SOME MAY START A REVOLUTION

TRYING TO FLY TO GREATER HEIGHTS WITH A BROKEN WING

SAYING THEYÕVE FOUND THE RIGHT SOLUTION

BUT FOR ME TILL I FIND THE KEY THERE IS NO SUCH THING

 

SOMETHING NEW IS HAPPÕNING RIGHT NOW

IT IS LIKE IÕM WAKING FROM A FANTASTIC DREAM

BUT I CANÕT BELIEVE IT, SOMEHOW

FLOWING CLEAR AS A MOUNTAIN STREAM IS A LOVE SUPREME

THINK THAT I WAS IMAGINING THERE WAS NO SUCH THING

 

 

 

 

OPTIMISTIC BLUES

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(ALT. BLUES)
Music: Ewan Svensson

 

MONEY DOESNÕT MAKE US HAPPY

MONEY DOESNÕT MAKE US GLAD, NO

WHEN YOUR PURSE AT LAST IS EMPTY

CHANCES ARE YOUÕRE FEELINÕ BAD, SO

RUN AWAY FROM THE PESSIMISTIC

GET AWAY FROM THE STATUS QUO

 

CANÕT YOU HEAR THE VOICES CALLING

TELLING YOU TO CHANGE YOUR MOOD, SO

PUT THE HUNGRY YEARS BEHIND YOU

ADOPT A BETTER ATTITUDE, GROW

YOUÕLL BE DEVELOPING PERSONALITY AND

FINALLY WILL STOP THE SHOW

 

PESSIMISM DOESNÕT MAKE IT

GETÕS YOU NOWHERE IN THE END, NO

LEAVE THE HIGHWAY TO THE BLUES NOW

THEREÕS BETTER TIMES AROUND THE BEND, SO

YOUÕLL FIND THAT YOU HAVE A VERY SPECIAL AURA

YOUÕLL GET AN OPTIMISTIC GLOW

 

 

 

 

FROM OUT OF THE SHADOWS

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(CHANGED)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

WHEN ROMANCE COMES, STAYS AWHILE AND THEN LEAVES

LOVE TAKES YOU PRISÕNER IN THE SPELL THAT IT WEAVES

ITÕS BEEN SO LONG SINCE I SAW A NEW DAWN

MY WORLD HAD BECOME WEARY AND WORN

 

YOU CAME ALONG, HELD MY HAND, LIT THE SPARK

JUST AS MY EYES WERE GETTING USED TO THE DARK

NOW IÕM EMERGING FROM OUT OF THE SHADOWS

INTO THE LIGHT

 

HUNDREDS OF YEARS HAVE GONE BY SO IT SEEMS

THIS COULDNÕT HAPPEN, NOT IN MY WILDEST DREAMS

ALL OF MY SENSES RETURNING AS NEW

THEREÕS NOTHING AT ALL SPOILING MY VIEW

 

YOU CAME ALONG, HELD MY HAND, LIT THE SPARK

JUST AS MY EYES WERE GETTING USED TO THE DARK

NOW IÕM EMERGING FROM OUT OF THE SHADOWS

INTO THE LIGHT

AGAIN

 

 

 

 

STARSVILLE

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(MEDIUM)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

YOUR LEADING LADY, THAT WAS ME

THOUGHT I WAS TOP OF THE BILL

LIVING IN STARSVILLE

I HAD DREAMS OF BEING A NAME UP THERE IN LIGHTS

AND ON EVÕRYBODYÕS LIPS

GETTING ALL THE WINNING CHIPS

IN GAMES OF CHANCE, COULDNÕT LOSE

EVÕRYONE WISHED THEY WERE IN MY SHOES

THOUGHT I WAS NUMBER ONE OF COURSE

PUT A STAR UPON MY DOOR

THOUGHT THAT I WOULD HEAR THEM SHOUT

FOR MORE

 

THE NEW LEADING LADY, WHO IS SHE?

IS SHE FROM THE CHORUS LINE?

A NEW STAR WHOÕLL SHINE

I RECALL YOU SAID NO ONE ELSE COULD TAKE MY PLACE

DO THE THINGS THAT I COULD DO

MAKE IT COME ALIVE FOR YOU

THE WORLDÕS A STAGE

AND I PLAYED INTO YOUR HANDS

SO YOU HAD IT MADE

YOUR PRIMA DONNA THAT WAS ME

GUARANTEED TO MAKE A HIT

BUT A CO-STAR I WONÕT BE

I JUST WENT AND QUIT

 

 

 

 

BEING HUMAN

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(BEING)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

THERE ARE TIMES IN LIFE

YOU HAVE DONE EVERYTHING THAT YOU CAN

WELL, IF THATÕS NOT ENOUGH

IT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE ONLY HUMAN

 

AND BEING HUMAN MEANS LEARNING FROM ALL OUR MISTAKES

IF YOUÕRE HUMBLE THATÕS ALL IT TAKES

ITÕS A FRIENDLY WARNING

WAKE UP TO A BRIGHT MORNING

 

TO DO ESSENTIALLY

ONLY THE THINGS IN LIFE THAT FEEL NATÕRAL

ITÕS NOT SO EASÕLY DONE

MOST OF THE TIME IT IS QUITE IRRATIONAL

 

BUT BEING HUMAN MEANS HAVING TO TAKE EVÕRY CHANCE

TO ENHANCE ALL OF LIFEÕS SWEET DANCE

AND WHEN THINGS ARE ALL DONE

YOU WERE ONLY BEING HUMAN

 

 

 

 

SOMETHING IN RETURN

Music:Ewan Svensson (Summer Song)

Lyrics: Dave Castle

 

TODAY I ASK MYSELF IF WE

DESERVE TO HOLD THE KEY

NO GETTING SOMETHING IN RETURN

UNLESS WE LEARN

 

THE GREENERY IS GONE

AND STARS THAT ONCE HAD SHONE

THEY HAVE NO MORE TO SHINE UPON

 

BUT FOR SURE

ONE THING THATÕS FOR SURE

IF WE LOVE OUR OWN UNIVERSE

LETÕS NOT MAKE IT WORSE

 

NO MISTAKES

LETÕS NOT MAKE MISTAKES

IN RETURN, YES

WE SHALL GET SOMETHING IN RETURN

AND IF WE FIND ANOTHER WAY

AND POSSIBLY WE MAY

WE MAY GET SOMETHING IN RETURN

BECAUSE WE LEARNED

 

SO SHALL WE GIVE AND TAKE

OR ARE WE GOING TO BREAK

ALL OF THE PROMISES WE MAKE

 

THROUGH THE CLOUDS

SHINING THROUGH THE CLOUDS

YOU CAN SEE A WONDERLAND THERE

SHINING EVÕRYWHERE

 

SOON ITÕS SPRING, WINTER TURNS TO SPRING

AND IN TIME THE

SPRING GIVES US SUMMER IN RETURN

 

 

 

 

I AM TOUCHED

Lyrics: Dave Castle

(PIECE II)

Music: Ewan Svensson

 

I AM TOUCHED

BY YOUR SWEET WORDS

THEY WARM MY HEART

LIKE SINGING OF THE BIRDS

AT DAWN, AS I WAKE

YOUR WORDS MEAN SO MUCH,

AND YOUR TOUCH

IÕM LOST

IN YOUR EMBRACE

AND I CAN SEE

FORGIVENESS IN YOUR FACE

AS YOU HOLD ME CLOSE

YOUR WORDS MEAN SO MUCH

AND YOUR TOUCH

 

I AM TOUCHED

NOW COMES A TEAR

AND ONE BY ONE

MY FEARS JUST DISAPPEAR

AT DAWN I HAVE FOUND YOUR LOVE

AND YOUR TOUCH

IÕM REBORN
