Under Glass She’s a good girl and she don’t ask She looks pretty under glass Smiles at you if you walk past She’s a good girl All I want to say – in my simple way Is you deserved a little more She’s a good girl and she don’t ask Learned her lessons from her past As the future faded fast She’s a good girl All I want to say – in my simple way Is you deserved a little more All I want to say – in my stupid way Is you deserved a little more All I want to say – in this clumsy way Is you deserved a little more

Lighthouse 04:48
Lighthouse Atop the old lighthouse The lamps no longer shine The only light a sailor sees On foggy nights is mine The last five men that left here Those brothers I admired Went off to join the navy When our dear old ma expired So I drink to my brothers Raise a glass and cheer I drink to their memory Though I have no body here I light a candle every night and call your name I stare out to the sea each night and call you home And so my brothers left me Too small to reach the light Their gunship never stood a chance as it was Hurled into the night The boat went down all hands on deck Or so the locals say And left alone and cupboard bare, well I soon Followed the same way So drink to my brothers Raise your glass and cheer Drink to our memory though there’s Still no body here I light a candle every night and call your name I stare out to the sea each night and do the same I light a candle every night and call your name I stare out to the sea each night and call you home

Fear of The Dark (Oh! Polyanna!) Every night when I go to my bed Sinister thoughts creep into my head What are those shadows behind the door What are those noises under the floor I reach for the light I shiver with fright Is this fear of the dark? Or is somebody there? I find it hard inside my head To face the darkness inside my bed You’ll find it hard inside my bed Embrace the darkness inside my head And oh! Polyanna will come to be with me Oh! Polyanna, sets my spirits free So she comes kissing me on my head Slithering softly into my bed Banishing shadows behind the door Kicking the blankets onto the floor She blows out the light She lights up the night No more fear of the dark Not with her body there Her body’s there…… I find it hard inside my head To face the darkness inside my bed You’ll find it hard inside your head Embrace the darkness inside your bed And oh! Polyanna will come to be with me Oh! Polyanna, set her spirit free Is it fear of the dark? Or is somebody there?

The Telephone We fell in love In London in a small theatre She took the stage I knew I could not forget her And so I weighed The conscience of a heavy debtor And as it fell apart I know I broke your heart Calling your number to ask if I can be forgiven - now From Canada Your sister sent an airmail letter She said you’d passed Quite peacefully to someplace better Once more I weighed The Conscience of the heavy debtor And as I fell apart I knew I broke you heart Calling your number to ask if I can be forgiven Calling that number to ask if I can be forgiven now Pick up, Give up, Pick up We fell in love I never meant to hurt you Kathy

about

These are the songs we wanted to put on the album but didn't finish in time for release. They're still favourites of the band, and we're looking forward to adding them to the live set in Spring
