The Devil The Heart & The Fight

Wanted

There’s money on your head you’re a wanted face
Upside down I’m gonna turn this place
In the shadow of the city you’ve been laying low
Whoah – I won’t let go

London don’t let me down
London don’t let me down this time
Take my luck and turn it round
London don’t let me down this time

Down the barrel of the night I’ve got you in my sights
A figure under flicker of an old street light
In the shadow of the city you’ve been laying low
Whoah – I won’t let go

New York don’t let me down
New York don’t let me down this time
Take my luck and turn it round
New York don’t let me down this time

Oh city lights
Show me love and show me life
Surrender yourself to me
In these streets I still believe

I wanna feel alive (x4)

Take my luck and turn it round
Cairo don’t let me down this time

Geordie Lad

So I missed you on Monday
In conversation your name came up
Took me back to that summer
Geordie Lad

What the hell became of us?
Geordie Lad

How you doing? In the wild wild world?
I hope it’s treating you well?
And I wonder what you’re up to now
You know I think of you still

That was us in the young days
Bursting out of the photograph
Up to our necks in our old ways
Geordie Lad

I hope it’s treating you well?
And I wonder, what you’re up to now,
You know I think of you still

I guess I always will
I guess I always will

Words were thrown and we meant them
But what we had was worth more than that
Here’s to the good and the great times
Geordie Lad

How you doing? In the wild wild world?
I hope it’s treating you well?
And I wonder, what you’re up to now
You know I think of you still
Geordie Lad

Tragedy In A Minor

We had it all, what did I know?
If that was love, where did it go?
My friends give advice, I should be playing it cool
Did all of those years mean nothing to you?

The day she left me, she never looked so lovely
And as she walked away, the thunder gathered above me

Cancel the wedding, Mariachi band too
Don’t need no disco DJ, just bring me the blues
Just give me some time, I’ll be back on my feet
Until then, I’ve got that day on repeat

The day she left me, she never looked so lovely
And as she walked away, the thunder gathered above me
The day she left me, I swear she never looked finer
The day she left me, a tragedy in A Minor

The day she left me, I’ve got on repeat (x2)

Well who to invite, it was doin’ my head in
It’s kind of a blessing she cancelled the wedding
Some day I will laugh at this, I do not doubt it
I might even write me a song all about it

I swear she never looked finer
The day she left me, a tragedy in A Minor

Devil In Me

My love for you is scary stuff, a dangerous thing
Long way down if we should drop, into the burning ring

So you think that butter wouldn’t melt, well think again

The devil in me will come for you and you’ll pay the price for not being very nice
The devil in me will come for you and you’ll realise that to cross me was unwise

All a game but a fatal one to play, it will end in tears
No hope, no help and no escape. It’s getting dark round here

The devil in me will come for you and you’ll pay the price for not being very nice
The devil in me will come for you and you’ll realise that to cross me was unwise

You took my life I’m taking yours, it seems to me a fair trade now, I’d be afraid now
You asked for this you took the risk, now there’s no way to recover, oh my lover

My love for you is scary stuff, a dangerous thing
Hurt me and make your gravest of mistakes, my friend

My love for you it is a dangerous thing (x 4)

Injuries

On the advice of my heart I flew
Into the burning sun
And for the life of me I can’t
Find me a way to return

On the advice if my heart I
Took a chance I took a chance
You found the gambler in me
It was give it up or learn to dance

And oh for the life of me and oh for the life of me
I won’t escape some injuries
Oh till the death of me until the last breath of me
I won’t escape my injuries
We all carry our injuries

On the advice of my heart I
Bought a guitar and wrote this
It won’t win me a mercury prize
But it gets some things off my chest

On the advice of my heart I
Fell in deep I fell in deep
You found the gambler in me
It was give it up or make the leap

And oh for the life of me and oh for the life of me
I won’t escape some injuries
Oh till the death of me until the last breath of me
I won’t escape my injuries
We all carry our injuries

On the advice of my heart, whooaa.. (x4)

Oh for the life of me and oh for the life of me
I won’t escape some injuries
Oh till the death of me until the last breath of me
I won’t escape my injuries

Oh for the life of me and oh for the life of me
I won’t escape some injuries
Oh till the death of me until the last breath of me
I won’t escape my injuries
We’ll all carry our injuries

My Injuries (x2)

Reunion

Home, home, home is no home without you
It’s nothing but bricks and stone
Oh darling I dream, dream, dream of your returning
Into your arms I’m thrown

Wild Wild wind bring us together
Never again to part
Come on now roll on reunion
It’s you who employs my heart

Every time I see you
All the world is made new

Time time time is always between us
Well what are we waiting for
Come on now home, home, home set your sail homeward
Back to familiar shores

Wild Wild wind bring us together
Never again to part
Come on now roll on reunion
It’s you who employs my heart

Every time I see you
All the world is made new
Despite the storm that tore threw
All the world is made new

And time is between us
Time is between us

Every time I see you
All the world is made new
(x3)

Beat It From The Chest

Words to say well sing em loud
Take your stand and make it proud
Don’t get buried in the crowd
Beat it from the chest

There’s fire in your belly’o
Raise your voice and let it go
From New Cross Gate to Walthamstow
Beat it from the chest

Beat it from the chest, Johnny
Beat it from the chest
Louder that the rest oh
Beat it from the chest

Come on Johnny stand up tall
For to face the battle call
Together we can take it all
Beat it from the chest

Never be misunderstood
Steer your course through flame and flood
Fight your fight and fight it good
Beat it from the chest

Beat it from the chest, Johnny
Beat it from the chest
Louder that the rest oh
Beat it from the chest

You won’t see your job as done
You won’t see your race as run
Until you find your bonny one
Beat it from the chest

Beat it from the chest, Johnny
Beat it from the chest
Louder that the rest oh
Beat it from the chest

Beat it from the chest, Johnny
Beat it from the chest
Louder that the rest oh
Beat it from the chest

Hamburg Drunk

Woke up in the gutter licking your wounds
With some raggedy memory of some prostitute
Who hit you squarely ‘tween bleary eyes
You had it coming to you it can not be denied

By rights you should really have come to more harm
Your falling and sprawling down the old Reeperbahn
Your phone and your dignity you left behind
Safe to say you had yourself one hell of a time

No answer to be got from a bottle
No salvation gonna come from the rum
You say you couldn’t agree more but tonight we will roar
There’s nothing to be done but get Hamburg drunk

A late night bar we did finally find
They took one look at you and said we don’t want your kind
And your acrobatics did not go down well
At least you leave this city with a story to tell

No answer to be got from a bottle
No salvation gonna come from the rum
You say you couldn’t agree more
But tonight we will roar
There’s nothing to be done but get Hamburg drunk

End of the tour and we got one last night
To drink to our travels and St Pauli dry
Like sailors before with their last night on shore
We’ll drink till we drop and then drink us some more (PROST!)

There’s nothing to be done but get Hamburg drunk (x3)

Grace

Hit me inspiration
Won’t you come on over here
Let me hear you sing
Throw me anything

Save me ‘coz I’m lazy
Won’t you come on out the blue
Like you do some days
To lead me all a stray

I’ve said it all a thousand time in a thousand different ways
I try to rhyme a clever line but all I want to do is say something true

Strike me inspiration
been a stranger for too long
Make this song complete
Knock me off my feet

Drown me in your ivy
Take me over and entwine
Try to find in me
Some creativity

I’ve said it all a thousand time in a thousand different ways
I try to rhyme a clever line but all I want to do is say something true

Grace. Grace me with your grace
Grace. Grace me with your grace

Instrumental

I’ve said it all a thousand time in a thousand different ways
I try to rhyme a clever line but all I want to do is say something true

Grace. Grace me with your grace
Grace. Grace me with your grace
Grace. Grace me with your grace
Grace. Grace me with your grace

Charlie

Don’t look back ‘cos familiar will kill ya
I’ve seen it happen too many times too many times too many times

Life begins at a run down railway station
The 10:15 on the London line, the London line, the London line

Just take a look at Charlie
Carries a dream for all of us
Flying the flag for northerners
Council estate to Hollywood

Just take a look at Charlie
Like Steve McQueen he took the jump
Look at him go that could be us
Have to admit the boy done good
Just like his mother said he would
Like she said he would

Don’t think twice, go and find your future
You know that fortune favours the brave, favours the brave, favours the brave

Find your way cos no one will find it for you
Another summer it came and went it came and went it came and went

Just take a look at Charlie
Like Steve McQueen he took the jump
Look at him go that could be us
Have to admit the boy done good
Just like his mother said he would
Like she said he would

Fix your grip, don’t let it slip
Gotta fight for this, this is it
(x4)

Just take a look at Charlie
Like Steve McQueen he took the jump
Look at him go that could be us
Have to admit the boy done good
Just like his mother said he would
Like she said he would

Fair Winds & Following Seas

Let the road rise up to meet us
There’s a rabble on the loose
We had ourselves one hell of a time
Tearing up the town with you

We got ourselves some stories
Took a wrong turn or two (just one or two)
We made ourselves a whole load of friends
One night only then we’re on the move

Fair winds and following seas
Thank you for the memories
Fair winds and following seas
I know we’ll meet again somewhere

For new friends and repeat offenders
To the sweaty dive bar shows
We ram the van with all that we can
North to South and coast to coast

We found ourselves adventure
We shared a drink or two (just one or two)
We lived ourselves a whole lot of life
Sentimental when the tour is through

Fair winds and following seas
Thank you for the memories
Fair winds and following seas
I know we’ll meet again somewhere

Here’s to all the roads we’ve trod
And to those we’ve trod them with
To those who’ve run and drunk and sung with us
And the tomorrows yet to live (sing it)

Fair winds and following seas
Thank you for the memories
Fair winds and following seas
I know we’ll meet again

Fair winds and following seas
I know we’ll meet again somewhere

Carry

When I’m lost upon a spitting raging sea
I hear your voice sing a sweet melody

When it’s hard to find a reason to believe
I hear you call I hear you calling me

The thought of you does carry
Carry, carry, carry me
The thought of you does carry
Does carry me

When these days seem to be suck on repeat
You give a smile and knock some sense into me

At the risk of sounding sentimental
My pocket’s empty but my heart is full

The thought of you does carry
Carry, carry, carry me
The thought of you does carry
Does carry me

I been lost on the outside
Take me right back to your side now

I been lost in the nowhere
Take me back to that somewhere I know

The thought of you does carry
Carry, carry, carry me
The thought of you does carry
Does carry me

Oh the thought of you does carry
Carry, carry, carry me
The thought of you does carry
Does carry me
