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

Track Name: I love you but
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
Track Name: Watch over me
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
Track Name: Not my lover
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
Track Name: Hotel or Car
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
Track Name: Baby come round
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
Track Name: Goodbye Chicago
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
Track Name: Get Back Home
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
Track Name: Why won't you
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
Track Name: Mohicans
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
