Track Name: You Won't Get Me
You won't get me
They won't let you
You might try to
But be warned don't do
You won't get me
They won't let you
I'm on the rocks
Bash my head against a brick wall
Trying to make a small hole

I know your name
I also know your game
You can stake your claim
with me, with you

You won't get me, no way

You can't have it
You don't own me
They have got me
As far as I can see
You won't get me
They won't let you
I'm on the rocks
Bash my head against a brick wall
Trying to make a small hole
Track Name: Byron Bay Away
Byron Bay Away


Well I left the city heading north again.
Want to smell that ocean want to feel that sand.
Its only 10 hours and Im free again.
Heading to Byron to find my soul again.

Byron bay away
I travel night and day
To be where I belong.
Byron bay away
I travel night and day
That feeling in my soul.

Well the music played into the night
With Lang & Bronson playing on there slides
Sardine can ally as I stand
I got that euphoric feeling in my soul again.

Byron Bay away
I travel night and day
To be where I belong
Byron bay away
I travel night and day
That feeling in my soul.

Solo.


Byron Bay away
I travel night and day
To be where I belong
Byron bay away
I travel night and day
That feeling in my soul.

Before I knew it my time was up
Grab my bags feeling quiet days go by
Back to good old Sydney to my grind
One more year I’ll be where I belong.


Byron Bay away
I travel night and day
To be where I belong
Byron bay away
I travel night and day
That feeling in my soul
Track Name: Days Gone By
Took a drive to the city
To see what’s around
Met some friends on the opera house steps
It’s been a long while
Jazz in the corner of a café bar
Sun sets on the harbour
Reminiscing about those younger years
Oh we all had a laugh

Chorus Oh how we miss,
Oh how we love
Those days gone by. by those days gone by by.



Timmy Brought the Business I here it’s doing ok
And Renee, she lost her man to the claws of the night
Rob caught in the stress of a dead end job
Calling for a new life
Bill and lis still going strong
Scotties floating on by

Chorus Oh how we miss,
Oh how we love
Those days gone by by those days gone by by.



Bridge Oh these days, are destine to be
Oh these days, are destine to be
Destine to be
A day gone by.

Solo

Lot of time has passed now
Since we’d all been together
Busy life’s we lead
Will it ever end?
People change and there funny sometimes
I guess that’s what life brings
But deep down inside your heart
You remember those younger years

Chorus Oh how we miss,
Oh how we love
Those days gone by by those days gone by by. those days gone by by.
Track Name: Gypsy Man
Well I’m a gypsyman
Been almost everywhere
Kissed a few and held on to their hearts
I have jumped the coup
Bang held up to take the loot
I must be leaving here tonight
Let me set the scene I was a rebel I was 17
Looking at life through the bottom of whiskey glass
Opportunity knocks twice my friend
The devil takes one and your on your own again
Take my advice you should be leaving here tonight
Fine women good times good friends guitars
Bring me more bring me wine bring me women bring me more guitars
Because it’s amazing I Can see at all these days
I’ve been blinded by bad love
I’ve seen their eyes and the gypsy smiles they hide
I’ve seen the shadow that lie behind
All the gyspys know
Where all the Gypsy’s go
Well here I am
I am the gypsyman
Well I’m a gypsyman
Been almost everywhere
Kissed a few and held onto their hearts
Track Name: Time is Right
Why Not Now
Cant you see I’m right

Cause, My place is yours
The time is right
The world is ours tonight.

Why is the time not right for you
Why is the time not right for you.

Why Not Now
Is the time not right?
Don’t leave so soon
It’s so early in the night
Cause, My place is yours
The time is right
The world is ours tonight.

Why is the time not right for you
Why is the time not right for you.

Baby just stay a while
Baby you make me smile
You are the answer to
My loneliness through and through.

Why Not Now
Can’t you see I’m right?
Please Stay A while
It’s so early in the night
Cause, My place is yours
The time is right
The world is ours tonight.

Why is the time not right for you?

Why is the time not right for you.
Track Name: Give Me Back My Name
Give me Back my Name
Give me back my name
I’m not just a number
You can’t track me like an animal
I will fight this to the end

Yeah I’m gonna fight it
I’m gonna wake the neighbours
I’m gonna tear your system down
Till you

Gimmie gimmie back
Gimmie gimmie back
Gimmie gimmie back my name

Give me back my name
I just wanna be myself
I can’t stay here like this
I’ll lose my sense of self

Yeah I’m gonna fight it
I’m gonna wake the neighbours
I’m gonna tear your system down
Till you

Gimmie gimmie back
Gimmie gimmie back
Gimmie gimmie back my name

Give me back my name
Don’t treat me like a fool
You take it I lose control
You can’t take my life

Just give it back to me
I’m not a number in your file
You can’t make me stay I’ll burn it down
Just give ‘m to me
I ain’t gonna wake up nameless
You can’t take my name I’ll hunt you down

Give me back my name
You can’t make me stay here
You’re not looking after me
You’re gonna take the one thing I own
Track Name: All Very Reasonable
All Very Reasonable
Sometimes I can’t quite decide which is better or worse
But I’m hooked on your pleasure & pain
You’ve taken everything I have to give
And still you want more of me
Don't leave a fragile mind in the midday sun
(my father always said)
Or tell me what I’ll find when the day is done

Gotta find the answers to the questions that I pose
It’s all very reasonable don’t you suppose
I see you divin’ from a deep blue sky and what is it you’re chasin’?
You see your prey without a hint of apprehension
Then you’re gone on the wind yeah you’re gone on the wind
Dartin’ and divin’
Don't leave a fragile mind in the midday sun
(my father always said)
Or tell me what I’ll find when the day is done

I gotta find the answer to the questions that I pose
It’s all very reasonable to me don’t you suppose
I gotta find the answer to the questions that I pose
It’s all very reasonable to me don’t you suppose
Track Name: Secret World
Secret World

Your secret world (is watching you)
Your secret world (is listening)
There are shadows in bright places
The black hats hold us down
It's all for the good of the nation
Dangerous world
Big brothers watching you (all day)
So don’t leave a footprint
Don’t believe the lies
Don’t leave a footprint
These are the times
Dark suits and mirrored glasses
Reflecting down disguising all we see
Track Name: Mid Life Crisis
Midlife Crisis
Used to be a sports car now it’s hog
With your fresh pressed jeans you look like a knob
You ride a Harley which once was cool
But it’s lost all its street cred ‘cause you’re such a tool
Chorus
Just a midlife crisis trying to regain your youth
Just a midlife crisis ain’t that the truth
Just a midlife crisis still chasing the chicks
Just a midlife crisis you’re such a dick

You ain’t the tough guy you’re trying to be
Just a phoney weekend warrior with a business degree
Trying to be an outlaw but you’re just like the rest
Rebel without a clue in a cheap leather vest
Chorus

Ancient US iron with that god awful noise
Give me a Honda with speed and poise
You can keep your Harley with the leather and chrome
I’ll ride my Honda and I’ll beat you home.
Chorus
Track Name: Walks Alone
Walks Alone
Three years, you’d think it a lifetime
When it’s barely a drop in the ocean
Ten minutes can pass by so quickly
But it don’t take that long to die
Walks alone, she walks alone, walks alone

The stupidest question in the world
Is the one that’s never asked for fear of embarrassment
You can walk around forever wondering
And die without knowing the truth

One wave’s the same as the next
But each one is different from the last
No point in theorising prophecising
Which one will take you to your death

A pet’s a pet in some books mine included
Some don’t even give a sideways look
But 14 years in a dog’s life
Would be like looking down the barrel to die
