Track Name: Under Glass (Radio Edit)
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
Track Name: Lighthouse
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
Track Name: Fear Of The Dark (Oh! Polyanna!)
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?
Track Name: The Telephone
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
