HERE WE ARE AGAIN…

BACK TOGETHER AGAIN     lyrics by Ged Roberts

HERE WE ARE AGAIN
BACK TOGETHER AGAIN
SO GOOD TO SEE YOU
SO GOOD TO BE WITH ALL MY FRIENDS
HERE COME THE MEMORIES
DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN?
AIN’T IT SOMETHING ELSE 
WHEN WE’RE BACK TOGETHER AGAIN

NOW DID YOU MISS ME?
DID YOU EVER THINK OF ME?
DOES IT SEEM SO LONG SINCE YOU SHARED THAT LAST DRINK WITH ME?
OR DID TIME JUST FLY..DID IT ROLL ON BY?
YOU TELL ME I HAVEN’T CHANGED…
DO WE REALLY LOOK THE SAME?

LET’S TALK ABOUT THE OLD TIMES
LET’S TALK ABOUT THE GOOD OLD DAYS
SOMEWHERE UNDER THE SUN
I THINK ABOUT IT LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY
AND LIFE GOES ON THOUGH SOME OLD FRIENDS ARE GONE
I’M SO GLAD TO BE HERE
TRYING NOT TO COUNT THE YEARS

NOW SOME FOLKS SAY ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME UNTO AN END
BUT EVERY TIME I SEE YOU I JUST WANNA DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN

DANCING WITH DAVE     lyrics by Ged Roberts

Well he’s no Fred Astaire
And he’s no Wayne Sleep
He’s no Michael Jackson
Or Rudolph Nureyev
His name is Dave
He loves to dance
If you give him half a chance
And all the girls think he’s  Simply the best

Well he’s no Sammy Davis Junior
No Mr Bojangles
He’s no Patrick Swayzee
Dirty Dancing On the floor
His name is Dave
He loves to move
And when he gets right in da groove
All the girls ,
They want more more more…

They’re Dancing with Dave in the kitchen
Dancing with Dave In the hall
Dancing with Dave in the bathroom
Dancing with Dave from wall to wall
Dancing with Dave in the bedroom
Summer ,winter ,spring or fall
Anytime ,anyplace anywhere…
Dancing Dave has got it all!!

He doesn’t move like Jagger
He ain’t no Riverdance
there’s just something in his Cha Cha Cha
That make the girlies go oooh la la

Well he’s no John Travolta
No Starlight Express
And he’s no Gene Kelly
Singing in the rain
His name is Dave
He loves to dance
And if you give him half a chance
All the girls love to Sway Sway Sway

They’re Dancing with Dave in the kitchen
Dancing with Dave In the hall
Dancing with Dave in the bathroom
Dancing with Dave from wall to wall
Dancing with Dave in the bedroom
Summer ,winter ,spring or fall
Anytime ,anyplace anywhere…
Dancing Dave has got it all!!

 

 

 

AMAZING     lyrics by Ged Roberts

It’s Amazing
unbelievable
It’s not for real
inconceivable
It’s kind of strange but it’s beautiful 
That you are here with me.

It’s amazing
Unbelievable
Bewildering 
Almost unthinkable 
It’s kind of strange but it’s wonderful 
That you are here with me.

I close my eyes
Am I dreaming this?
I feel your touch
And a lasting kiss
I hold you close
In A warm embrace
And feel a tear run down your face

You’re amazing
You’re Unbelievable
You’re not for real.
 Inconceivable
You’re kind of strange but you’re beautiful 
And you are here with me

I close my eyes
Am I dreaming this?
I feel your touch
And a lasting kiss
I hold you close
In A warm embrace
And feel a tear run down my face

We’re amazing
Unbelievable
We’re not for real 
Inconceivable 
We’re kind of strange but we’re beautiful 

And you are here with me

We’re kind of strange, but we’re beautiful, 

And here we are we two..
Amazing me and you

 

THE FIRST TIME      lyrics by GED ROBERTS

How long must we  wait for the 1st time? 
How long must we stand waitingd in line?
How long must we wait before we see the sun shine.. after the rain?

How long must we wait for the right one?
How long must we cry before we hear that sweet song?
How long before we know what’s right or what’s wrong..?
Or do we wait in vain…?

I thought the last time was the best time
But the last is just the past time
I thought I’d done it all
All in my lifetime 
Until the first time
The very first time

How long til we see that there’s a reason 
For every day of our lives, there’s a season
Sun may shine , leaves may fall, 
It’s just nature teasing you 
After all..
I thought that yesterday was the best day
Ah but yesterday is just the past day
I thought I’d done it all, all in my day
Until today…
The very first day..

 

 

A LETTER FROM LIVERPOOL    lyrics by Ged Roberts

I’m writing you from Liverpool
Where the the sun is shining but it’s kind of cool for the time of year
Wish you were here …..
Went to the Cavern yesterday, 
It’s a place where the Beatles used to play
But you won’t remember Let it Be or Yesterday…
And later on I took a walk, down to the Mersey and the Albert Dock
And I met a man and his little girl
And we started to talk.

He said I think I know your face
But for the life of me I just can’t place where I’ve seen you before, 
Just can’t be sure…
And when I told him he started to laugh..
He said you don’t look much like your photograph
But maybe for my little girl, your autograph?
And I see by your eyes you’ve a little girl too
I guess it must be kind of hard for you to be so far from home
Do you ever feel alone?

Then his little girl laughed and threw back her hair 
And just for that moment I saw you there
I could almost touch your rosy cheeks, your skin so fair
And I could almost feel that our last embrace
And taste the tears rolling down your face as you kissed me goodbye
Never knowing why
And there’s nowhere on earth I’d rather be , than holding you now so tenderly..
I guess you’ll soon be 3….
Oh how I miss you desperately….

Soon it was time to say goodbye
He shook my hand and looked me straight in the eyes
And said see you sometime, the pleasures all been mine
But it’s not because of who you are, not because your a superstar
It’s simple , can’t you see??
You know you’re just like me..

And I’ll be on the stage tonight 
Beneath the glow of the bright spotlights 
And I’ll give my all to each and everyone
But when I’ve sung my final song,when the curtains down and the fans are gone
And I’m left with only me…
That’s when I miss you desperately….

So I’m writing you from Liverpool
Where the sun is shining but it’s kind of cool for the time of year
Wish you were here…
All my love…

 

WHY            lyrics by Ged Roberts

Hey little girl
Have you got time for me?
Coz I’m ready to fly
And I could surely use a little company
I know Your mama don’t like me
And your daddy says I’m crazy
Ah But they never walked on  the wild, wild side of the tracks 

Hey little girl
Everybody says that I’m a fool
Coz I’m not the kind, 
The  kind of guy that plays by all the rules
Teachers call me lazy
But that ain’t gonna faze me
Coz  I wanna learn what they never ever taught me at school
Taught me at school

So baby let’s fly
Wild and high
Let’s see  the beauty of the world where we live now 
Before we die
And baby let’s live
And baby let’s give
Give our hearts to the sun and the moon and the stars and the sky

And understand why
Why I don’t wanna be like all the rest
With their fancy cars, fancy talk, and their fancy dress
I wanna run , with wild  horses on the open plain
Where love and gratitude abound
And where  “Dignity” is my name 
Dignity is my  name.

So baby let’s run
With wild  horses in the morning sun
And tear ourselves from the greed and the fear that is slowly killing everyone
And baby let’s try
And baby let’s cry
And give our hearts to the sun and the moon and the stars and the sky

And understand  Why….why I don’t wanna be like all the rest….

Yeah baby let’s fly
 just you and I
And give our hearts to the sun and the moon and the stars and the sky

And teach our children Why. 

 

HER TWILIGHT YEARS        lyrics by Ged Roberts

 

She was a lady, quite well-to-do
And he was a gentleman, honest and true
And as he took her hand on the night they first met
She’d a feeling she’ll never forget

He stood 6’4″ his hair silver grey
Elegant, eloquent, distinguished you’d say
With a voice so deep , assured yet so calm
As he spoke he held onto her arm

And her heart beat like she was 16
Was it all for real?
Was it all just a dream?
And her eyes cried a river of tears
She’d found love, love 
Love in her twilight years

He talked of the old days
Old faces,  old names
How he’d fought for His Majesty
Been shot down in flames
And how he’d travelled the world
And all the places he’d seen in his life

She listened intently
Hanging on every word
Engrossed in the stories and adventures she heard
And as the band played 
He asked her, so kindly, to dance
“Shall we dance?”

And her heart beat ….

And they danced to a song they both knew
From a time long ago when love was all new
But 60 years on it seemed nothing had changed 
Because love will always remai

And her heart beat…..

And her eyes cried an ocean of tears
She’d found love, love,
Love in her twilight years.

 

THE OLD YEW TREE        lyrics by Ged Roberts

I met him under the old Yew tree
92 give or take a day
Deep Brown eyes, and a vampire smile
and we passed the time away

We talked of life and religion
Talked of love and hate and fear
Exchanged opinions, 
Shared our experiences, 
Rolling back the years

I don’t care where you come from
I just respect what you believe
Whatever creed, whatever colour, you know
I am you and you are me
we are all gods chosen ones
And we can live in harmony 
If the world would only listen
To the old man and the old yew tree.

 I could walk with you forever
 I could talk to you for miles
I could listen to the music  of your soul
And feel the wisdom in your eyes
And I will always remember 
The way my heart reached out to you
In the shade of the old Yew tree
You have to me the truth

And I will always remember 
The way your heart reached out to me
Deep brown eyes, vampire smile
And the old yew tree.

 

THE NIGHT I DANCED WITH YOU        lyrics by Ged Roberts

When we danced 
You lit the fire inside my soul
True romance…not a single word
There the chance to take our hearts and fly
But this dance is all we ever shared

So there’ll be no breaking vows, no broken hearts,
No secret rendezvous.
No cheating, lying, no tears crying
No whispering” I love you”
No breaking vows , no broken hearts, 
No denying what’s true
All we’ll have is the memory
Of the night I danced with you

Now who’s to say had we met in a different time and place
Perhaps we’d play another part
Perhaps we’d play a different role, but somehow
There’s no easy way in matters of the heart.

 

 

PARADISE     lyrics by Hal Roberts

There’s something about your smile tonight
Let’s me know everything’s alright
And as I watch you move across the room
I don’t wanna let you out of my sight
Oh I know I could take you for granted
But it’s not the way it’s gonna be
It ain’t hard for me to imagine
What a treasure you are to me

Well it’s a long,long way to Paradise
But I’m almost there it’s true
If this is what it’s like in Paradise
I just wanna be there with you

There’s something about the love you show me
In all that you say and you do
Helps me forget all the bad times
Since I set my eyes on you
Oh let them say what they want to
They’re all too blind to see
It ain’t hard for me to imagine
What a treasure you are to me.

So I’m heading in your direction
Tell me what else can I do?
Cos I’m flying higher than I’ve ever flown
Just to get close to you.

 

 

HOW TO SAY I LOVE YOU           lyrics by Gareth Roberts

HOW TO SAY I LOVE YOU
SHALL I PUT IT INTO PRINT?
AND LEAVE IT SOMEWHERE OBVIOUS 
AND HOPE YOU TAKE THE HINT?
SHALL I SPEAK IT IN ITALIAN
AND HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND?
SHALL I POST IT ON MY WEBSITE
OR ENGRAVE IT IN THE SAND…..?

HOW TO SAY I LOVE YOU 
SHALL I SING IT EVERY NIGHT?
OR GO ALL GASTRONOMICAL 
WITH A CURRY AND CANDLELIGHT ?
SHALL I SIGNAL IT IN SEMAPHOR
OR PAINT IT ON A SHEET?
AND DRAPE IT OVER RAILINGS 
AS A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY TREAT.?

HOW TO SAY I LOVE YOU 
SHOULD I PUT ON CD?
AND PLAY IT INCONSPICUOUSLY 
WHEN YOU COME ROUND TO ME?
AND SHALL TALK ABOUT IT FREELY
TO THE GUY BEHIND THE BAR?
OR HAVE ON A STICKER
ON THE WINDSCREEN OF MY CAR?

HOW TO SAY I LOVE YOU 
SHALL I CALL THE LOCAL PRESS?
AND KEEP MYSELF ANONYMOUS 
AND SEE IF THEY CAN GUESS?
AND IF I MADE YOU A CONFESSION
WOULD IT DO ME ANY CREDIT ?
I ……LOVE YOU…..
THERE ., IVE SAID IT.

 

 

‘TIL I FOUND YOU       lyrics by Ged Roberts

Please don’t scorn me
for giving you away
You don’t know my  pain inside 
And please don’t hate me
for doing .what I did
Though I know it hurt your pride 
What I did was best for me
And it was right for you
There’s no reason to forsake
If  the meaning’s true

Now here we are 
After all these years
 A thousand smiles
And a million tears 
After all this time
In a wilderness of truth
I never found myself
Until I found you

No I don’t blame you
and I’m not here to fight
I can feel your aching heart 
And I understand
 what you did was right 
Though you were torn apart
What you did was best for us
In spite of all the pain 
What was lost wasn’t lost forever
It’s time to start again….
