You thought I was a simple girl Well so did I We only gave what we had Created a lie Oh I love you boy I just don’t love everything about you I said I love you boy, I just don’t love everything about you Whatever way the wind blows It’s got to, got to get you when you’re feeling low Oh it gets you when you’re feeling lonely, oh so low I love you boy I just don’t love everything about you I love you boy I just don’t love everything about you I said I love you boy, I just don’t love everything, no Oh well it gets you when you’re feeling lonely, oh so low I said I love you boy, I just don’t love everything about you I said I love you boy, I just don’t love everything Oh you know that I’m trying baby I said I love you love you love you Why do I, Why do I, Why do I, Why do I

Dancing on the cobwebs, this is a sensory thing It’s a gallery of do or don’ts As I lie alone, recovering From you from you, for you it’s always for you Oo I know you can change a reckless heart When it don’t feel right - so try It’s just another game of do or die Watch over me, sometimes I’ve no control Watch over me turn my head, cover my need Cause I need you to stop me and have the courage to speak When the angels are caught beneath Jekyll’s trying to Hyde He says it’s for you for you, for you, it's always for you Oo I know you can change a reckless heart When it don’t feel right - so try It’s just another game of do or die Watch over me, sometimes I’ve no control Watch over me, and turn my head, cover my need Watch over me, you know I’ve no control Instrum He says it’s for you, for you, for you, it's always for you Oo I know you can change a reckless heart When it don’t feel right - so try It’s just another game of do or die Watch over me, sometimes I’ve no control Watch over me, you know, you cover my need Watch over me, sometimes I’ve no control Watch over me, and turn my head, cover my need

Not my lover 04:10
You wanted a girl to smile just a little longer I turn my head away, you want to get closer Safe from the sparks I can breathe, I can take cover I called you a king but you are not my lover, my love I've been waiting for a sign Before closing my lips on your mouth And all over Like Juliet, I made my heart tremble again You're not my lover, you're not mine I can see, nothing can come from this Though I've never loved so long You wait with a smile knowing there'll be a time when You will rule I called you a king but you are the best of fools, my fool Chorus Who could take this crown And leave me hanging, not my lover, not mine Swear not by the moon, should you ever change your tune My king, my fool - oh oh Chorus I've been waiting for a lifetime Before before kissing your mouth And all over Like Juliet, I made my heart tremble again You're not my lover, not mine

Hotel or Car 03:13
I’m coming back to pick up my things No sense in sincerity You’re black humour left me angry With strange girls in limousines It could be hotel or car, you’re gonna ride I’ve been brought up to come to my senses Come on No luck in complaining, you win by defeating I’d cry til you’d see me, no nectar sucked clean Hotel or car, you’re gonna ride I’ve been caught up, I've come to my senses Come on Double take and I double over I, think you know what your doing Come on try, try Did u have a little lust to give away Not gonna cry but I think you know I’m right Honey u’re tied up in your Hotel or car, you’re gonna ride I’ve been Brought up to come to my senses Come on you've got all night, but honey I’m tired of looking at you I’ve been caught up, I’ve come to my senses Come on hotel or car In your hotel or car Your hotel or car, in your hotel or car Oh I’ve been caught up – come, come, come, come on up

Look for a conscious catalyst for change And replace what's vacant from your gaze Cause everyone's special til the cracks compare And while we sleep no one really cares Baby come round We're in this town without a cross to bear And there's half a chance we won't come out alive Forsake your arms on the front line But underneath the static you're aware While we sleep no one really cares Baby come round We're in this town without a cross to bear And while we sleep no one really cares Baby come round Baby come round We're in this town without a cross to bear And while we sleep no one really cares Baby come round Baby come round

Tell them the news I'm leaving today The sounds of the city are hold me down I just can't stay I get on board The five o nine train I took all the records an old jewellery box And my father's last name Goodbye Chicago I've cried my last tears for you Remember the times when I tried to be faithful to you It's now two days on I catch myself thinking did I do what's right Were you so wrong, so wrong Well Goodbye Chicago I've cried my last tears for you Remember the times when I tried to be faithful to you, to you Well Goodbye Chicago I've cried my last tears for you Remember the times when I tried to be faithful to you, to you

I’m in a lucky situation here, Sinking on a boat But nobody knows what waits And I cant wait to see you huny baby Won’t you get back home Why’d I ever think about you huny Why’d I ever want with all your loving Why’d I ever think that you and I were doing good Why’d I ever compromise, oh you never could Why’d I ever think that I was missing Why’d I think that it was all in your kissing - get back home We built a castle by the nearing tide Knew I should’ve listened when they said you’d be a while So I’m crazy but I, I’m in ecstasy baby Better get back home Why’d I ever think about your loving Why’d I think you’d make a little bit of huny buny Why’d I ever think that I was missing I was missing Why’d I think it’s - all in your kissing Why’d I ever comprise, well I knew there was something You better Oh baby, oh please I’m callin you, you’re my weakness Oh baby, oh please how am I supposed to love u baby Oh get back home Why’d I ever think about you huny What I ever want with all your loving Why’d I ever think that I was missing Did I, get lost in your kissing Huny why, why oh why Why’d I ever listen to what my friends all say Why oh huny - you were just a bad boy

Hope, the tallest tale No way to take you from this modern world An arbitrary line, meet your wife You follow down what you think is right You’ve fallen for, fallen for this Notion that it’s all you have to hold You won’t let it no you wont let it go I’m calling for, calling for, I’m calling ur bluff boy Why wont you let go x3 why don’t you let it go Why wont you let go x3 you’re falling apart it’s over, over, over Sold, the rights to know When you decided to commit yourself Less is what you have come to know The grass is greener but its on the shelf I’m calling for, calling for, I’m calling all bets to Know, if you’re said and done, the game’s over But you won’t let it, no you won’t let it go You don’t even love, you don’t even love her Why wont you let go x3 why don’t you let her go Why wont you let go x3 you’re falling apart it’s over over over You want it, but you won’t help U want it, but you can’t help You want it No you don't even love, you don't love, you don't even love her Chorus Why wont you... You’re hoping for more, it’s over, over, over

Mohicans 04:38
The storm would disappear 
had I not chased the sun from the sky Fool the night whispered to me you'll soon hold on to things you can't see Fool the night whispered to me you'll soon hold on to what you can't see The storm would disappear 
had I not chased the sun from the sky I asked her to take care of you 
 Gave my voice to warm her wind Emerged in love - for you 
 I could feel distance suddenly closing The warmth from your words Though some may never be spoken Eyes like sleepy starlight unraveling my heart The storm would disappear 
had I not chased the sun from the sky

about

"Muse and Memorabilia defies quick or casual assessment: The mysterious Mohicans (music by Neil Baldock) works between the epic and the intimate; Goodbye Chicago may or may not be about leaving a relationship; the meaning of I Love You But as unequivocal but as loaded as its title . . ." Graham Reid

“...The album is excellent ... Your voice is outstanding and I love the production quality. I enjoy the lyrics as well - they are all interesting and not quite what you are expecting.” - Jan Hellriegel, NZ songwriter
