Tell me some more of that Jimmy Doyle story I’ll tell you about the night we heard the ghost guitar A 55 bus ride Wapping days, basement nights Singing “Lonesome Cowboy Bill” But, we’re rockin’ in the photograph We’re rockin’ in the photograph We’re really rockin’ in the photograph from 1983 Shouting and a screaming To the old folks in the front row The blue rinse brigade were never gonna sing along A can of Super T Mark, Paul, Earl and Me We never stood a chance But, we’re rockin’ in the photograph We’re rockin’ in the photograph We’re really rockin’ in the photograph from 1983 Wearing the same shirts, laughed till it hurt Dreaming about success Picking up the battered old acoustic in the corner Playing “All of Nothing” I still get the words wrong But, we’re rockin’ in the photograph We’re rockin’ in the photograph We’re really rockin’ in the photograph from 1983 We’re rockin’ in the photograph from 1983 Yeh, we’re rockin’ in the photograph from 1983 We’re really rockin’ in the photograph from 1983 We’re rockin’ in the photograph from 1983 Yeh, we’re rockin’ in the photograph from 1983 We’re really rockin’ in the photograph from 1983

I was sinking when you found me With my heart of stone Worn around the edges Frayed and sepia toned Now the days go by and I waste my time Photos fade, fates resign Emily come back Pages curl and the dust motes fly Count the hours, wonder why Emily come back Either tethered to a smoke ring Or spat out like a spark Waiting for the world to spin Just to leave a mark Now the days go by and I waste my time Photos fade, fates resign Emily come back Dust motes fly and the pages curl All these lines about a girl Emily come back Sometimes I hear you laughing Or see your sweet smile upon another’s lips Now the days go by and I waste my time Photos fade, fates resign Emily come back Pages curl and the dust motes fly Count the hours, wonder why Emily come back Emily come back Emily come back

Stars 03:21
I blame the moon for starting this Lit up you looked so beautiful Maybe I’m a sucker for gravitational pull Now, can I blame the sunstroke The top down in the LA sun Or drinking on the Hudson River Having too much fun Everybody says it, “nothing lasts forever” I just don’t believe that’s true They can waste their lives shooting for the moon I got the stars with you A Pawley’s Island beach-house Adrift at the Lake Lure Inn Or smiling through your hair on a back porch swing Everybody says it, “nothing lasts forever” I just don’t believe that’s true They can waste their lives shooting for the moon I got the stars with you You never settle for second best Or take a ticket and stand in line I love the fact that you do it all in your own sweet time Never settle, take a ticket, in your own sweet time Everybody says it, “nothing lasts forever” I just don’t believe that’s true They can waste their lives shooting for the moon I got the stars with you Everybody says it, “nothing lasts forever” I just don’t believe that’s true They can waste their lives shooting for the moon I got the stars with you

Crack a smile or two Your lips loose the words Are you aware at all? They hang in the air unheard Well, you swagger and you’re bold As if you’re something to behold I guess ignorance is bliss You’re shrink-wrapped to the bar King for a day uncrowned In super 8 slo-mo You descend for the count Now like some burnt out ‘50’s star There’s no spark from your memoirs I guess ignorance is bliss How could you risk all this? Is there nothing in her kiss To keep you here tonight Now mistakes are just the lines That you get caught up in sometimes I guess ignorance is bliss You never feel the undertow As it drags you far below I guess ignorance is bliss I guess ignorance is bliss I guess ignorance is bliss

I'm done with all the Psycho games Inference apportions blame Can’t believe behind those eyes Vitriol and bitter lies Belying your countenance outwardly With Friends like that, Who needs Enemies? With Friends like that, Who needs them? They're only there trying to hold you back Friends like that Once Sugar sweet, now saccharine Smiles slowly souring Friendship lost in your short shrift Like a deep fade or a Doppler shift As blunt as the axe would seem You cut me dead With Friends like that, Who needs Enemies? With Friends like that, Who needs them? They're only there trying to hold you back Friends like that And so you’d have them all believing you And your “poor little me” routine But, I’m not gonna be your sacrificial lamb No Ma’am With Friends like that, Who needs Enemies? With Friends like that, Who needs them? They're only there trying to hold you back Friends like that

Well, you had it a little itch You were dying to explore You just couldn’t help yourself I guess you scratched it till it got sore I hear those mockingbirds, Pins drop and whispered words Like a silent enemy Chorus Everybody’s talking, Everybody’s talking now Everybody’s talking, Everybody’s talking now Well, you told a little lie and another little lie Remember that the ride ain’t free Because a lie ain‘t got no memory I still hear those mockingbirds, Pins drop and whispered words Like a silent enemy Chorus Loose lips sink ships So I’m heading for that lifeboat now Attention on deck I’m sorry, we’re going down Whispers in the back room You can hear them Dancing to some slow tune You can see them Smiles that she's been faking Spell she's weaving Signals you're mistaking You believe them Everybody’s talking, Everybody’s talking now Everybody’s talking, Everybody’s talking now Everybody’s talking, Everybody’s talking now Everybody’s talking, Everybody’s talking now

Arthur knew he had no choice When he heard that little voice like “Blutarsky” in his mind She was beautiful, it seemed as if she fell out of his dreams Like some Hefner playmate find Now there’s so much for him to fear So what’s a guy like him to do, but, face his demons Please don’t tell him that it’s not Love Please don’t tell him that it’s not Love Derided, almost out of view Denied the luck that others knew The years so slowly inching by Now breathing life in her, she him The candlelight upon her skin and Barry White on the Hi-Fi He’s gone too far to turn back now So what’s a guy like him to do, but, face his demons? Please don’t tell him that it’s not Love Please don’t tell him that it’s not Love She’s a girl who can’t say no Happy to let him come or go He always seems to blow his chances

Riverbend 04:20
Down the steps I came I left in ankle chains A ship of fools set sail with me The sun lit up the Thames as Big Ben chimed It sounded like a death knell to me Out of the blue, into the black Head hung low, there’s no looking back It’s just 10,000 miles from the riverbend No champagne on the bow No flags, No kids allowed No you to wave goodbye to me Hung my coat upon that burned out sinking sun And the rest, they say, is history Out of the blue, into the black Head hung low, there’s no looking back It’s just 10,000 miles from the riverbend On the bridge at dawn Almost two centuries on The sun stretches from the sea With my shackles gone, Who knew we’d live so long You would be envious of me Out of the blue, into the black Head hung low, there’s no looking back It’s just 10,000 miles from the riverbend It’s just 10,000 miles from the riverbend

You’re cranking up the Dansette Loading up the 45’s A static filled speaker crackles into life You’re dialling in the Radio Poised above the play and record Tuned into Caroline and biting on the earphone cord Tell me when did all you kids forget? Now, Pop’s a dirty word Hey, have you forgotten Bowie hugging Ronson? Yeah, Pop’s a dirty word Climbing up ten places, John Peel and the Faces You’re flipping over ‘B’ sides Poring over Gatefold sleeves Check the lyrics out in “Disco 45” magazine Tell me when did all you kids forget? Now, Pop’s a dirty word Hey, have you forgotten Bowie hugging Ronson? Yeah, Pop’s a dirty word Climbing up ten places, John Peel and the Faces Now, Pop’s a dirty word Cozy and the Devil, Steve and Cockney Rebel Yeah, Pop’s a dirty word Sweet Baby James Taylor, Beach Boys: Sail on Sailor Endlessly circling the run-out groove When did all you kids forget? Now, Pop’s a dirty word Hey, have you forgotten Bowie hugging Ronson Yeah, Pop’s a dirty word Climbing up ten places, John Peel and the Faces Now, Pop’s a dirty word Cozy and the Devil, Steve and Cockney Rebel Yeah, Pop’s a dirty word Sweet Baby James Taylor, Beach Boys: Sail on Sailor Now, Pop’s a dirty word Pilot “January”, Linda, Paul & Denny Yeah, Pop’s a dirty word Supertramp were dreaming, Boston had a feeling Now, Pop’s a dirty word Lonely Boy was golden Don’t forget Todd Rundgren Yeah, Pop’s a dirty word Lennon started over The riff in “My Sharona”

Cast your spell down over me Nectar to a honeybee You drew me in effortlessly This is the end of you and me Shoot the breeze and chomp that bit Lower my sights and take a hit Hearts on sale for a cab fare fee This is the end of you and me Always trouble brewing The two of us kept stumbling along One little grain of truth is always gonna prove you wrong Climb on board and say goodnight Last one here turns out the light Ring that bell, time gentlemen please This is the end of you and me So ring that bell, time gentlemen please This is the end of you and me
