Lyrics: Postcards From Paradise (2015)

 

Rory And The Hurricanes

Woke up early heading for the M1.
200 miles til we get to London.
We were sleeping on the floor, living on bread and jam.
Because we thought we hit the big times, we didn't give a damn.

We were Rory and the hurricanes 
(Rory and the hurricanes) 
Rory and the hurricanes.
(Rory and the hurricanes) 

Went to the dance on a friday night.
Every London girl we asked were so uptight.
I saw a pretty little girl she came from France.
She said oui when I asked her to dance.
The world was spinning like the glitter ball above.
And already I was falling in love.

We were Rory and the hurricanes. 
(Rory and the hurricanes)
We were Rory and the hurricanes.
(Rory and the hurricanes)

Going down to Soho.
Was the place you had to go.
It was were everyone was made.
Down to the Two eyes caf'e.
That's where Tommy Steele would play.
Next time we went to London town.
We didn't do much hangin' around.
I was with you know who.
I played the drums like I always do.

We were Rory and the hurricanes 
(Rory and the hurricanes) 
Yeah, Rory and the hurricanes 
Rory and the hurricanes 
We were Rory and the Hurricanes

You Bring The Party Down

I woke up this morning and opened up my eyes
I made myself some coffee and then I realized
Some people are good, some people are bad
Some people are crazy and some are still so sad
When you're in town you bring the party down

The times are changing but you don't understand
Still living off your memories when you were in the band
You're loaded up on this you're loaded up on that
Your mind is just so twisted you don't know where you're at
When you make that sound you bring the party down

I tried to help you time and time again
I thought you'd listen to me your dear old friend
I tried my best I did what I can
You never listened you just don't understand
When you're around you bring the party down

I tried my best I did what I can
You never listened you just don't understand
When you're around you bring the party down
When you're around you bring the party down

Bridges

Each and every road is filled with choices
Have to decide which way to go
You can say where are you at
Turn around or go back
Or take a chance on what’s ahead
You never know

Down every road you come to bridges
Some are crossed and some get banned
And some you can get down
And new ones get built from what we learned

Down every road we come to bridges
Crossing bridges is the best way to go
Down every road you come to bridges
Crossing bridges is the best way to go

Come a long way
From where I started
Still got a long way to go
I still got some things that need answers
But this much I know
This much I know

If where are you know isn’t working
Crossing bridges is the best way to go
Crossing bridges is the best way to go

Down every road we come to bridges
Crossing bridges is the best way to go
Down every road you come to bridges
Crossing bridges is the best way to go

Postcards From Paradise

I sensed you there and everywhere
Until I saw you standing there
I am the greatest fan of you
And love is all I've got to do
It's all too much my little child
If you will be my honey pie
Eight days a week you will be mine
And get in bed all of the time

I'm begging you don't pass me by
And if you do please tell me why
I know you told me yesterday
You've got to hide your love away
But if your honey is bad to me
It told me "love and let it be"

Postcards from Paradise
With all my love and I'll be true
Postcards from Paradise
As ever P.S. I love you
Postcards from Paradise

I would not treat you for no one
I see your face here comes the sun
And I am going nowhere man
Because I want to hold your hand
It's like I said the night before
I'll love you when I'm sixty four

Postcards from Paradise
With all my love and I'll be true
Postcards from Paradise
As ever P.S. I love you
Postcards from Paradise

[GUITAR SOLO]

I know that we can work it out
There ain't no need of twist and shout
And I won't back off boogaloo
Unless you say you love me do

Postcards from Paradise
With all my love and I'll be true
Postcards from Paradise
As ever P.S. I love you
Postcards from Paradise

Postcards from Paradise
With all my love and I'll be true
Postcards from Paradise
As ever P.S. I love you
Postcards from Paradise

Right Side Of The Road

Be what you’re doing
Stop what you do
The only one you’re fooling
Isn’t me it’s you
Didn’t I try to tell you?
You carry in a much too heavy note

You’re on the right side of the wrong
side of the road

Aiming for disaster
Something’s got to change
You’re only moving faster
Almost out of range
It isn’t about direction
Until you got no place left to go
No, no, no

You’re on the right side of the wrong
side of the road

Somebody already told me
What I’m telling you
I won’t ask anybody who knows me
I believe you can do it too

Tell me are you open
To be turned around?
You never really too much to be found
Maybe choose another direction
You got so many ways to go

Try on the right side on the right side of the road
Try on the right side on the right side of the road

Not Looking Back

Memory after memory runs through my mind
You standing in every picture
After all this time
Where will we go from here
Still together after all these years

Summers have come and gone
But all love goes on and on
You could ask for more than that
I’m looking forward
Not looking back

Can hardly wait for the days that are coming down
And when they will lead us into places
No one else has found
And I promise you
I’ll love you for a thousand years

Summers have come and gone
But all love goes on and on
You could ask for more than that
I’m looking forward
Not looking back

Day after day
What else could I say?
But I love you

No regrets just respect for all that we’ve done right
From where I stand
Our future still looking bright
Where will we go from here?
Still together after all these years

Summers have come and gone
But all love goes on and on
You could ask for more than that
I’m looking forward
Not looking back

Not looking back
Not looking back

Bamboula

On an old cot bay from around the lake
My baby said to me
This ain’t no time
For any nickel and dime
Or a wasted memory
So you all gather round and about the town
And it sounds like history
And our rhythm is great
It’s on the way
That brought you back to me

He cool you
Can't fool you, Bamboula

Down in Congo square
Not so long ago
A creole beat would play
And an old court room in a big bad moon
Would dine on end
The days go rumble in a mumble jumbo way
Sweet heart dear whit her hear real
You play each day

I’m calling
You owe it
You all in

Bamboula

With a creole girl
And a cranberry lane
Taking all my breath away
With every little age delayed
Feeling also

There’s no time to hesitate
Let us keep it straight
Never separate
This is not to intervene

Engagin’ the raging
It’s cagin’
Engagin’ the raging
It’s cagin’

I’m calling
You all in
I’m calling
You all in
I’m calling
You all in

Island In The Sun

Is not what you got
It’s what you give
It’s not how you die
It’s how you live
It’s not what you read
It’s what you solve
It’s not what you keep now
It’s what you let go

Well, Now now easy does it
Make this moment last
Don’t worry about the future
Don’t forget about the past

It don’t really matter
Where I’ve been
Or what I’ve done
I just keep on searching
For that island in the sun
I’m just searching
For that island in the sun
I’m gonna find my island in the sun

No No location
It ain’t on the map
It takes concentration
All into your lap
It ain’t in the whiskey
It ain’t in the drug
It could be a woman with you
Who leads you to love

Easy does it
Make this moment last
Don’t worry about the future
Don’t forget about the past

Don’t really matter
Where I’ve been
Or what I’ve done
I just keep on searching
For that island in the sun
I’m just searching
For that island in the sun
I’m gonna keep on searching
Island in the sun

Once upon a time
I couldn’t move without a spliff
Then I wouldn’t stop hiding
I got so much more to give
I got so much more to give
I got so much love to give

It don’t really matter
Where I’ve been
Or what I’ve done
I just keep on searching
For my island in the sun
I’m just searching
I’m gonna keep on searching
For that island in the sun
Island in the sun
I got to keep on searching
Island in the sun

Touch And Go

We met on a Friday night
I saw some other guy holding you tight
I thought that I couldn't stand a chance
I caught your eye at the end of the dance
I knew from the moment we said hello
It had to be more than touch and go
It had to be more than touch and go

Let me tell you one more time
I'm so glad that you are mine
This could have been just one whole night
Now I'm gonna love you for the rest of my life
It makes me happy to know you know
This is more than touch and go
This is more than touch and go

I like it, when you're around me
I was blessed the moment you found me
From daybreak to dark night
You make everything go right
Because of you I've come to know
This is more than touch and go

It's so easy to fall in love
But hard to hold on tight enough
I live the life I was dreaming of
Now that I found you

What we found as the years go by
Is nothing changes if we don't try
To see each other's points of view
And build a love that's deep and true
Sometimes fast and sometimes slow
Everything is touch and go
Life is more than touch and go

I like it, when you're around me
I was blessed the moment you found me
From daybreak to dark night
You make everything go right
Because of you I've come to know
This is more than touch and go
Ever since we said hello
Life is more than touch and go
Life is more than touch and go.

Confirmation

Sometimes I'm up,
Sometimes I'm down,
Sometimes I'm lost,
But sometimes I'm found.
I look at you, and I can see
Why I'm still look around
It's clear to me
If I knew then what I know now
I'd do it all again with you anyhow

We've been together from the very start,
It wasn't easy but we had the heart
We didn't know what we had to go through
I'm just so happy that I did it with you.
If I knew then what I know now
I'd do it all again with you anyhow!

Confirmation, when I look at you
Confirmation, that this think it's true
Confirmation, that we got it right
Confirmation, that you're here tonight!

Some people try and make up their mind
But you & I we've known all this time
At the end of the day when the sun goes down
I'm glad to say that we're still around
If I knew then what I know now
I'd do it all again with you anyhow!

Sometimes I'm up,
Sometimes I'm down,
Sometimes I'm lost,
But sometimes I'm found.
I look at you, and I can see
Why I stuck look around
It's clear to me
If I knew then what I know now
I'd do it all again with you anyhow

Confirmation!
Confirmation!

Let Love Lead

When you're feeling stuck in the day to day,
Having trouble finding your way,
Let love lead, let love lead

When you're all caught up in fear and doubt
And you just can't see your way out.
Let love lead, let love lead

By now I know you know
It's going to take you where you need to go
You got to let love lead, let love lead

When talking heads talk, but nothing rings true
And every day you're more confused
Let love lead, let love lead

When the troubled world makes no sense
All I know the best defense is to
Let love lead, let love lead

If we're ever going to get somewhere
Only one thing can take us there
Let love lead

When it just comes down to me and you
And we feel we don't know what to do
We've got to let love lead, let love lead
By now we all know,
It's going to take us where we need to go
We've got to let love lead, let love lead.
