Bowery Beat The money burns, the people fled The building’s dark, the pillows red The fever hangs, hands on fire The mind is gone into the night Sorrow sails onto the ledge Halos fall down to the neck The tables turn, nail the doors Lock the windows, embrace the floors Fall asleep to tales of woe; the silver sun is shining low Yet still they haunt and still they reel To little songs on a bowery beat The bag is full of rocks and wheat Still they stare to distant fields The tears ran red, the fire went blue The bodies fell, the bird it flew Tomorrow we'll be far away Drag our dreams into another day All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Rolling in the Tide Roll over when it's over Settle gently in my head My hands are wide and open My body is a mess Ring a bell for sorrow I'll be sitting in your cell I believed when I was younger I could believe in anything So crucify your glories For blue is the river on your side Tonight there will be no more answers still Just a moon rolling in the tide Made it through another winter I made it through the spring But autumn’s nearly over I swear I never missed a thing I often stumble Often stop to take a breath My heart was never stronger Like the way it was back then So crucify your glories For that blue is just the river on your side Tonight there will be no more answers still Just a moon rolling in the tide All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Red River I pay for money then I take my rest Not gonna hurry gonna help myself For this my brother you should pray No smell of roses on my breath Not gonna hold it or I'd be dead For this my brother I should pray Send them back on their horses going This is where the red river's flowing Sidewalk sally got a nervous twitch She’d beg for loving but she hurt her wrist For this my brother you should sway A quick drink it won't make me sad Another whisky gonna turn me bad And for this my brother I shall sway We’ll send them back on their horses knowing That this is where the red rivers flowing Ole number seven it hit me for six I love to gamble but the two don't mix For this my brother you will play Been taking medicine for my head I wrap them up and then I put them to bed And for this my brother I complain We’ll send them back on their horses going This is where the red river’s flowing We pay for money we take our rest Not gonna hurry gonna help ourselves For this my brothers you should pray No smell of roses on my breath Not gonna hold it or I'd be dead For this my brother I should pay We’ll send you back on your horses knowing This is where the red rivers flowing All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Careless Words How long, crossing sands Have we been walking on our hands? Hold a mirror to a face Hold a mirror to her face Always feels, that I'm running back Just been here far too long is all I just need to let it go I just need to let it go All the small, imperfect stars Come showering above me now I don't ever want to leave I don't ever want to leave your arms The careless words that you speak Come ringing in my ears today You just never made it clear I don't ever make it clear So challenge this, all your thoughts and trends Come to unfashionable ends I just had to let you know I just had to let you know Put a smile, upon your face And you never fail to shine I just couldn't love you more How could I ever love you more than I do right now All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Fire on the Edge of Town Wiry faces endorse the truth Lines and races are falling through Backdoor hustles as we’re waiting on the starting call Paulie closes another book I said that movie we'll it ain’t so good My mind stutters as my mouth it begins to move I said I ain’t been so happy but I ain’t feeling so blue Change the record or clear the air Floorboards whistle to the noise downstairs Headlights flashing but I ain’t got no room too move Push the baby or raise the fair I don't say maybe and I don't say where Ain’t holding nothing we'll you ain’t got so much too lose I said I ain’t been so happy but I ain’t feeling so blue It’s like when you arms are holding mine Like a breath from that morning dew It’s like a fire that starts on the edge of the town And the winds come ‘a bellowing through Call your sister said where've you been I've been out walking those roads again Ain’t thought of nothing well I still don't even have a clue She said I ain’t been so happy but I aint feeling so blue I said I aint been so happy but I ain’t feeling so blue All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Lila Lila dear your father’s here To hold you in his arms Don’t you cry now close your eyes And I’ll be by your side You’re priceless when you shine your light For all the joy you bring Don’t you fear your mother dear Will soon be where you are Lila let your perfect hand Grab a hold of mine The sweetest smile and the laughter now Will occupy my time Child of rest you are crawling fast You will soon be on your feet You’ll be on your throne just like a queen And I'll bow down to your crown Now you bare all our hopes and fears In this ever changing land Words will form and the pages turn For now there is no other So Lila dear your father’s here To hold you in his arms Don’t you fear your mother dear Will soon be where you are All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Annabelle Sally kind enough to hold my hand When everyone else would let go I'd be nothing without you now Ain’t nothing that I'm too proud to show? Ride with the fallen and then rising up from the dead Those cold winter mornings hear that voice Calling me back to my bed But oh Annabelle Who’ll save you tonight? Oh Annabelle Make a stand or just suffer where you land There’s nothing that I'd rather regret If I was back to where this all began You know I'd probably just do things the same Walking on water left me sore and so soft to my head I bleed in silence just the way that I've always been But oh Annabelle Who’ll save you tonight? Oh Annabelle Can you please remind me why I am here? Or could you just hold me a while Maybe take off some of those heavy winter clothes And put them right next to mine Sweet little angel you got such a beautiful heart I've tried to ignore this I know you've been sleeping But I find sleeping so hard But oh Annabelle I'll save you tonight Oh Annabelle All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Fuel the Fire Down on bourbon street The house lights beat upon your coloured beads I will walk you home and I'll appear outside your window This is all I have in these moments when I don't feel so sad But these thoughts will only fuel the fire Come back don't you start Piling the misery upon my door For I will lay you out and I force my head above the clouds Now you would stay with him and the pain well it shot right through my skin But these lies will only fuel the fire I've been half a man Woman I'm barely even that I was taking down my walls at the time it seemed like such a little chore Now I'll be on your side just let me lay with you until the morning light But these nights will only fuel the fire Oh I start to keel I miss the lights above your bed The starfish at your feet And I failed to make your life complete Now I break down to this And I face I know that I will never win But these fears will only fuel the fire Only dreams survive I move on oh none the otherwise Passed above the blame Oh can you love me just the same For this will be my fight But I fear I may not last another round But these thoughts will only fuel the fire All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Beyond Below Precious little hands on the dialling wheel I'm a calling home, I wont be long White car screaming right before my eyes Oh my oh my, what a beautiful sound Tomorrow go easy don't break my heart When the light first hits we'll be miles apart Children take the stage but the flash don't work She’s a pirate kid not a little girl Shout from the back 'our baby's dead' I'd be taking my fill but there ain’t none left Tomorrow go easy don't break my bones When the light first hits you'll feel right at home Too late to save but I tried my best Oh I put you to the test, to see if you drown Graveside flowers turn to dust But you can't let it go, you gotta stay in control Mother I tried not to hate myself When the light first hit there was no-one else Came down to see you but your sign was out Read 'where've you been, my little rock 'n roll king' Something oh lately weighing down my mind Oh I try to think and let the words unwind Sorrow go easy don't bare my soul When the light first hits we'll be beyond below Couldn’t get to own me so you changed yourself I'm too good I guess, for someone else You wipe his shoulders and you clean his shoes Now you’re living the dream of the housewife blues Tomorrow go easy don't break my heart When the light first hits we'll be miles apart Sorrow go easy don't bare my soul When the light first hits we'll be beyond below All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Starting Line I'm hearing voices, I'm reading signs I'm counting the colours, they’re counting mine I'm feeling that blue rush; I'm seeing a new start I'm making my way across the starting line I'm hearing my conscience and I'm playing deaf I've been feeling those bones creek Now that I've been burning lead I'm hitting that new high, I'm stealing that old rope I'm making my way across the starting line Go find me a river Go find me a path to walk And lead me with your guided hand That will take me from this foreign land I’m ignoring people, I'm getting free I've been working here too long And it's been testing me But I'm leaving that bad love I'm getting me that new job And I'm making my way across The starting line Go and find me a little river Go and find me a path to walk And lead me with that guided hand That will take me from this foreign land Now I've been moving mountains and I'm paying rent I've been sleeping on emotions and I've been reaping the hell I must be losing my mind But I'm keeping all these good times As I'm making my way across the starting line Oh I'm making my way across the starting line All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Forlorn True love waits in the back of the shadows Taunting the ones with no arrows Pointing the way to go home Deadlocked failures an optional insult A collection of broken reminders Pulling your eyes to the floor Horses race to the beat Chances come bitterly sweet Forlorn Bad luck, truth hurts but lies do not suffer A beautiful ghost will haunt me But someday you got to let go Dry mouth, cotton breath reaching for old sounds I drank too much now I must lie down And rest in my heart for a while Horses race to the beat Chances come bitterly sweet Forlorn Old hands wrestle the thoughts from the new lands Wars that they fought to remind them Who was to blame from the start All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Lowlands My love went walking showered in rain In rolls the winter to take you away But I'm not moving for it’s here I will stand Bound for no glory in the lowlands Across from the holding down by the sea Stretch my eyes over the heather and peat Now I'm a whisper with a promise in hand Fed to the aether into the lowlands Headlights sparkle the valley it shone Sky sharp like a razor cutting into the sun My father told me pride won't make you a man But words fall uneven in the lowlands Brittle and broken surrounded by you I suffered in silence I howled at the moon Though we are parted with my love I send Down through the meadows into the lowlands Plain yellow roses they fall on my head I slide in slowly consumed by the flames But I'm going walking where the lights never end Over the mountains into the lowlands Time passes over the green turns to grey Red hands they shiver black hearts stray Come up from the borders, oh rise up from the strand Bury me under the lowlands All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.

Before We Start to Forget Headlights glow Bodies of wire and snow Cracked windows cheap alcohol As the old sparra sings Glasgow smiles Be endless sleep tonight I hold you between the lines As you suffer each breath Home lies there Desperate eyes hold abandoned stares Feelings will infiltrate My love on the wire Justice starts and ends with a heavy heart Fear lies in all that hurts Now even the brave Come on lets go Let’s escape these walls Before we start to forget All lyrics written by Grant Campbell.
