On A daily basis When I saw you last in the stormy past Seemed an age since the arrest But I had to try, find an alibi Just one phone call and I had to make you mine Couldn’t get you in but you made it plain I been stewing all these days And you know I’m right to carry a torch for you None of my previous babies shine so long And you know I might feed that flame On a daily basis on a daily basis on a daily basis Now it’s all too much you getting back in touch I kept focus all these months Couldn’t fit you in the new scheme of things Just to prove it could be done And you know I’m right to carry a torch for you None of my previous babies shine so long And you know I might feed that flame On a daily basis on a daily basis on a daily basis Copyright Jon McLeary

Explore I see the house I see you there by the door I tell myself to be ready for anything I hear the voice that describes you so well And feel the roar of the planets edge If the world were flat I wouldn’t let you sail Away like that In a boat And if the world were fair You wouldn’t have to explore Take off my hat about ready to explore Then I see you shiver out of the corner of my eye I take my place in a world of reason You can see the result of a man too much in check I hit the wall that circumscribes the world we knew And find a way to magnetic south I walk the path through the heart of the stone To the dome where polar opposites attract

End In Tears Old mister standby got called again Went to the place and was amazed To see who was there Feel like a stranger in my own place Fixed in the wings with a grin Seeing you there Welcome to the part where we weep Nellie Knowing that the scars cut so deep Knowing it would all end in tears For me I said I had to find you went and asked around All they could say was you were free To do as you will Every time I try to be a better man I fall on my face in the wind Seeing you there

For The Vulture’s Sake Well I already knew how to get there I seen the door a number of times right in front of my eyes But I took the truth for granted I spoke before I knew what it was that I had on my mind Don’t go to sea she said with no boats in your life And a fog in your head Don’t make the great mistake You’d be a fool to make There’s too much at stake To just sit there for the Vulture’s sake Well I could have handled it better Took my time or looked the beast right in the eye And though I told myself not to panic I lost my cool and went into a downward spiral Well I suppose the seeds where planted From the time I made the first step into the gaining tide And I told myself not to swallow But the wind got up and took away all my pride
5.
On a Need to Know Basis It’s not quite dawn and a wintery sun Lies in wait to make the shape of the room I close my eyes and feel the warm Of your sleeping arms and the state of calm On a need to know basis You’re all I need on a need to know basis baby I count the rate of the beat of your heart Lying in wait to be courageous awake It comes back to me we’re never apart The we don’t keep no secrets at all On a need to know basis You’re all I need on a need to know basis baby You’re all I need I feel the wake of the traffic start To make its way into the wings of the day I try to stay with the angels And find a way to make the aliens wait On a need to know basis

Rachel 03:43
Rachel She came on the flood in a wave of hopeless lust My animal senses felt the same way about her She was ready to escape from a previous life And I was so wired it was tragic Rachel - reach out Restore my faith in human nature She’s a fine woman to love Talk about déjà vu You gave me something I could never do She took my car and backed away She could go far but not in that wreck I told her about the brakes and the chances that she takes But she put it in gear and she drive straight Rachel - reach out Restore my faith in human nature She’s a fine woman to love Talk about déjà vu You gave me something I could never do She wound up on the bus like it was the end of us My Animus howled for her and just closed down We found that we’d swapped clothes and I was naked to the world

St June 03:41
Saint June Saint June’s on the run Saint June’s on the road today Went behind little Jenny’s back Nothing could make it up to her someday They send somebody to make fun of her They send somebody to make fun of her They send somebody to make fun of her Little Jenny’s on the grass Playing games before the crash Fields of passion also grow Where the wine was meant to pay Juney’s gone to a better place Where nothing lasts and nothing tastes To the field of passion And she’s been there and I’ve been weird I’m tired of feelings Trying to change your past Saint Jimmy’s on the path Kids came along and it wasn’t there When they came along at last He was on his own and fading fast They send somebody to make fun of her They send somebody to make fun of her They send somebody to make fun of her

A Little Shuteye Sally left when our souls were out of whack She just went with my heart She made it back to the town she used to attack She just tore them apart And those promises you left were all that I could keep Ringing in my head give me something I can break Some might suggest that I’m not fully awake But I’ve been drinking all day I could use a little space I could use a little shuteye I was wrecked by the time she made the break Couldn’t take it all in I just blinked and the whole world missed a beat Woke up to a new start

Sex can be sad Lately I’ve been known to wander Down the streets of Loretta Where the nights are forever Lurching from one point to another On the brink of disaster Without the hope of a rescue Timing just seems to falter Don’t know when to surrender Never reaching the promise And sex - sex can be sad Sex can be lonely and don’t you know it Sex - sex can be sad Passion on strike lovers breathe a sigh just lie back and think of England Don’t make light of the way you feel It’s alright let go of the wheel The dangers just all part of the deal Lately I’ve been known to squander Any chance of a welcome In your outrageous arms And sex - sex can be sad Sex can be lonely and don’t you know it Sex - sex can be sad Passion on strike lovers breathe a sigh just lie back and think of England

The Supersane You know that you’re taking a terrible risk Explaining yourself over money or love If you can stand on your feet and you can make a good fist Then you just might be sorry for who you have told You know that you’re taking a hell of a chance Exposing yourself to unnecessary feuds If I’ve ever been out then I’ve learnt this one thing You can never be sure when your back is turned Stop leaving a minute baby I’m just trying to discover The difference between the sane And the insane And the supersane And the big brains There’s passion in lies but it’s only the bed You can make it it’s no real cover When you’re naked with him he’ll eat out your heart And you just might be sorry for who you have fed

Jennifer 02:41
Jennifer Jennifer I think the world of you Jennifer love everything you do But Jennifer there’s something wrong with you Jennifer I’ve got a massive heart Jennifer to play a major part But Jennifer when do the fireworks start I want to share your love I’ve had a taste of blood What is this pain you’ve got What were you thinking of What in the world you’ve done Jennifer I want to take you on Jennifer I got to feel your touch But Jennifer when are you waking up I want to share your love I’ve had a taste of blood What is this pain you’ve got What were you thinking of What in the world you’ve done What in the world you’ve done

There Goes the View There’s a loser on the loose And he’s wearing clothes like mine Someone ought to give him the message I got my number on my jacket There’s a cool breeze on the tundra And it’s crawling just for you Someone ought to tell you about the vacuum Sit for a number of years in the wreckage There goes the view There goes the last of any substance I could use There goes the rest of any subject I could do There goes the last of any secret that I knew There’s a blank kid on a mattress It’s a meeting of the minds Someone ought to tell you about the glory Went too many miles in a hurry
