Follow

(Dayve Dean)

On a road just south of paradise
I took a wrong turn when I thought I called your name
And you weren't there
I found the bridge that led to happiness
The bridge was out, diversion loneliness and you
You made it through

I never know which way to go down
I don't want to be there with you
I never know which way to follow
But I know I'm going to be there with you
I know this time that I am going to have to choose without you

It's been a long time since I fell for it
Now I've nothing left to show for it but you
You're showing through
I bought the things I thought brought happiness
But found they're nothing more than hopefulness and dreams
We can't afford

I thought you knew which way to go down so it followed I would be there with you
You never did decide to follow so I'm not going to be there with you
I never thought that I would ever have to choose without you

And now I find I'm tumbling somewhere new
It's taken time but I'm finally over you
And now I'm strong enough I'm going to make a move without you

Now in the woods I saw a finger post and found the thing I thought I wanted most but feared I wouldn't see
I saw a future full of emptiness but now I'm something that I must confess I thought I'd never be
I may not know which way to go down but I'm happy that I'm going with you
And I don't care which road I follow just so long as you are going there too
I hope I never have to be the one to choose without you

On a road just south of paradise
I took a wrong turn when I thought I called your name
And you weren't there

Ordinary by Dayve Dean - singer/songwriter

Ordinary

(Dayve Dean)

I spilt the last of mine and you can't make me swallow yours
I spoke to the devil but he just laughed and said 'Little boy, you're too far gone'
Out of spite I converted but in hindsight I could see that I was wrong
Never pushing the boat out, never daring
It's just too ordinary

Getting offers I wanted before I had you
Just tell me what is wrong
It's not like you couldn't count upon your fingers
All the things that I have done
You're picking up on the accent that I don't have
You say it's just something you've become
How rude are you when I ask you? You just laugh and say
That's just too ordinary

It's just too ordinary
You just laugh and point at me
It's quite extraordinary
It's something I could never be
So revolutionary
So I'll just laugh and you will see
It's just too ordinary

Heightening all my senses when I feel I'm being pushed out to the brink
Giving up on my senses, my sensibilities will always help me think
Even though I'm in danger of losing my senses, I'll still find your missing link
You go too far into silence, it's expected
That it's too ordinary

It's just too ordinary
You just laugh and point at me
It's quite extraordinary
It's something I could never be
So revolutionary
So I'll just laugh and you will see
It's just too ordinary

I can't help noticing something's wrong but you don't see
I can't help feeling we don't belong where it's too ordinary

You just laugh and point at me
It's quite extraordinary
It's something I could never, ever, ever be
So revolutionary
So I'll just laugh and you will see
It's just too ordinary

I Could Be Happy With You by Dayve Dean - singer/songwriter

I Could Be Happy With You

(Dayve Dean)

I was your everything or something about you
I was your loneliness, your hopefulness
And you gave me everything or something you thought was true
But I gave you nothing
You won't leave a mark I just can't erase
I close my eyes and I see your face
All I knew, I could be happy with you

You were my everything, if nothing else, a substitute
You were my loneliness, my hopefulness
And you gave me everything or something you thought was love
Still I gave you nothing
Now you're moving on to another place
I see your eyes, I don't know your face
All I knew, I could be happy with you

So what is real and what is true?
You don't have me and I don't have you
All I knew, I could be happy with you
All I knew, I could be happy with you
For all I knew

Starting Line by Dayve Dean - singer/songwriter

Starting Line

(Dayve Dean/Nigel Stonier)

You said it started out by accident
And just one of those things you know
And it came to you so gradually, eventually
But I found out sporadically
Just like everything else you do
And I looked round and I found we're heading back to the start

And like a memory I fade away
Get distorted with time and air
But it lingers on so gingerly, imperceptibly
And all the times we had and friends we made
Are like everything else you took
Now I look round and I found we're heading back to the start

You take me back to the starting line
The things I had are no longer mine
Just one more year and I'm calling time
I can't go back to the start

I thought I knew you but you're someone else
Not sure I like this new Mr Hyde
Turn back the time and I see that I had no place at all
And now you're feeding me the same old song
The slow poison and a glass of hope
Before I knew where we are, I'm heading back to the start

You take me back to the starting line
The things I had are no longer mine
Just one more year and I'm calling time
I can't go back to the start

In time you'll see that I won't
Always be hanging on
You're keeping me strung along
Until you see that you

Take me back to the starting line
The things I had are no longer mine
Just one more year and I'm calling time
I can't go back to the start

I saw you last at the finish post
You didn't know you weren't even close
But people change and I'm worse than most
I can't go back to the start

But someday soon it might make your day
To see those things you had thrown away
It makes no difference what people say
I can't go back to the start
I can't go back to the start
I can't go back to the start

Lizard Skin by Dayve Dean - singer/songwriter

Lizard Skin

(Dayve & Tom)

It's happening again
I can see it coming away
The dead skin discarded
It's just a memory

I'm not your lizard skin
This time I won't be here
Can live without you near
I'm not your lizard skin

I was your sole/soul belief
You trusted me
You shed your disbelief
And let another in

I'm not your lizard skin
I thought that you were mine
It hasn't worked this time
I'm not your lizard skin

So now you're leaving
You've had all of me
Ripped off your skin and gone
It's really happening

I'm not your lizard skin
And I'm not giving in
He isn't going to win
I'm not your lizard skin

Now I realise
You've got your life to lead
I've got to peel you off
Am I your lizard skin?

I'm not your lizard skin
I'm not your lizard skin

Tell You by Dayve Dean - singer/songwriter

Tell You

(Dayve Dean)
I've got a secret, if I could just tell you
I've got a story, if I could just tell you
And no one has to know, no one has to see, and no one has to feel
If I could tell you, if I could just tell you

If I could tell you just what I've been feeling
If I could tell you without ever revealing

It's been a long time since I was that person
Such a long time and was it all worth it?
And through it all you see another side of me
And through it all I feel that I should tell you
That I should just tell you

If I could tell you just what I've been feeling
If I could tell you without ever revealing

So should I tell you just what I've been feeling?
Should I tell you what I've been concealing?
Should I tell you this secret I'm hiding?
Should I tell you what I've not been confiding?
What nobody should know, nobody should see, and nobody should feel
So should I tell you, maybe I should just tell you


So should I tell you just what I've been feeling
So should I tell you what I've not been revealing
Should I tell you just what I've been feeling
Should I tell you why I'm not so appealing

I Don't Want To Be That Man Anymore by Dayve Dean - singer/songwriter

I Don't Want To Be That Man Anymore

(Dayve Dean)
You called me baby
How was I to know I was one in a million to make it through your door?
You told me I'm sexy, you told me I'm gorgeous
You said you wanted to see me some more
You knew I was falling, you made out you'd catch me
But you just let me die on the floor
I don't want to be that man anymore

If it was your intent to make me feel the way that I do
Just tell me what you meant or are you just playing me for a fool?
I'm wiser, not older, can't cry on your shoulder
Or even anyone else from my past
I'm coming out stronger but it's taking longer
This time I'm making sure it will last
'Cause I don't want to be that man anymore
I don't want to be that man anymore

I'm sure you feel you were right to tell him every word that I said
But I can make it through the night without another one in my bed
And even if I have to leave, it's not like I've never been there before
There's only one thing that I need and that's to get myself off the floor
'Cause I don't want to be that man anymore
I don't want to be that man anymore

Waters by Dayve Dean - singer/songwriter

Waters

(Dayve Dean)

Rushing down to the waters I heard your call
In that lonely time between summer and fall
If only I could I'd be your sun
But I know that I'm not the only one

Taken all in perspective it seems so slight
The darkness just punctuating the light
I hide in the shadows and see your face
Reflecting the beaches of time that I waste

But that doesn't mean that I don't see
I dive in feet first when the waters are deep
And that doesn't mean that I don't know
That it's not the only way to go

When one takes a leap and the other half falls
Blind faith is better than nothing at all
If I wasn't you I'd be there still
The waters would rise with the pain they distil

I thought I was you and thought you were me
You know you're too deep when you're feeling this free
With no place to go, nowhere to hide
Just go with the flow of the new morning tide

But that doesn't mean that I don't see
I dive in feet first when the waters are deep
And that doesn't mean that I don't know
That it's not the only way to go
It's not the only way to go

I thought I could see you through the waves and distorted images
I thought I could see it through the waves and dissipated energies
But I see the pain that cuts so deep within you
And I feel the pain release as I see it through

But that doesn't mean that I don't see
I dive in feet first when the waters are deep
And that doesn't mean that I don't know
That it's not the only way to go

And that doesn't mean that I'm at fault
I'm over my head and I'm nothing at all
But don't think that I don't realise
That I won't be there when the waters subside
I won't be there when the waters subside
I won't be there

Another Christmas by Dayve Dean - singer/songwriter

Another Christmas

(Dayve Dean)

When the church bells ring and the tide comes in
When the children sing all my thoughts cave in
Another year

Never been away before but I knew you had to go
Wasn't worth the money when I knew it wouldn't show
Close to you on that day but at night I knew I was living without you
Never been away before but I knew

'Cause when the church bells ring and the tide comes in
I know it must be Christmas
And when the children sing all my thoughts cave in
Another year, another Christmas

Every 24th I feel like I know and I've got to get away
Is it worth me wondering what you'd think of me today?
But I'm still changing so much
Yet at night, I know that I'm living without you
Every 24th I feel like I know

'Cause when the church bells ring and the tide comes in
I know it must be Christmas
And when the children sing all my thoughts cave in
Another year, another Christmas

I wonder what you thought of me then and what you'd think of me now
I wonder if you wanted it then, if you would change it somehow
I wonder if you felt it like me, I know you knew the way out
I wonder if you watch over me, if you could help me somehow

'Cause when the church bells ring and the tide comes in
I know it must be Christmas
And when the children sing all my thoughts cave in
Another year, another Christmas

When the church bells ring and the tide comes it
You know that it is Christmas
If you were with us now would it change somehow?
With every year another Christmas

Ride by Dayve Dean - singer/songwriter

Ride

(Dayve Dean)

Wish I could ride wild horses all my life like the crashing of the tide so that
I feel the freedom I'm denied, that I wanted all my life, so I
Write of the story of my life, everything I feel is right so I can
Ride, I can ride

And I know just what tomorrow brings, going nowhere at all
And nothing else is happening, you just watch me fall
I wish I was holding you, needing you, here with you
But you just reel me in and pass me by

When I feel the future's caving in I turn my back to it all
I marked the pack and dealt you in, left you standing tall
And like in a nursery rhyme, bide my time, toe the line
Until you reel me in and pass me by

Wish I could ride wild horses all my life like the crashing of the tide so that
I feel the freedom I'm denied, that I wanted all my life, so I
Write of the story of my life, everything I feel is right so I can
Ride, I can ride

And the summer's just another one, I feel it drifting away
And drink the dregs of everyone until you seize the day
Like you were an antidote, give me hope, tie the rope
So you can reel me in and pass me by

Wish I could ride wild horses all my life like the crashing of the tide so that
I feel the freedom I'm denied, that I wanted all my life, so I
Write of the story of my life, everything I feel is right so I can
Ride, I can ride
Ride, I can ride
