I don’t mean to

Andy Stern featuring Greg Blackman

You and me know
We know that we don’t get on too easily
It’s nothing new
Me trying too hard to get through to you

Probably drove you away
I don’t mean to

Probably drove you away
I don’t mean to

I spent too much time
Trying to load you with the things I knew
Now it is clear
That all I had to do was
Hear from you

Probably drove you away
I don’t mean to

Probably drove you away
I don’t mean to

Just give me a chance
I’ll open a tunnel
If you want me to
No pressure from me
But it would be so lovely to see you

Perhaps we’ll meet up again
I would love to

Perhaps we’ll meet up again
I would love to

It’s your love that keeps me going

Andy Stern featuring Greg Blackman

It’s so hard
When you find
That your life has removed all the answers you thought were true
All the time
Then you realise the answer is loving you

Cos it’s your love that keeps me going
It’s your love that keeps me going
It’s your love that keeps me going
Every day
Every day

Now the ground’s thin and bare
As I stumble and wonder if I will fall through it
And if I care
Yet somehow you grab me and drag me until I’m there
Back with you

And it’s you
Makes me see what a wonderful world this can be
Like you open it up for me
Happiness is a gift that you give to me thankfully

Cos it’s your love that keeps me going
It’s your love that keeps me going
It’s your love that keeps me going
Every day
Every day

It’s so hard
When you find
That your life has removed all the answers you thought were true
All the time
Then you realise the answer is loving you
Loving you
Loving you

All those years before

Andy Stern featuring Greg Blackman

And I wonder
Try and picture
If you’d known me years before

How our lives would have played out
If you’d known me
Years before

Maybe we’d have struggled
Like people can do
But our light shines
It would have shone through

Close my eyes
Try to imagine
How those people would have fared

But it’s me then
And not us now
Different people I’ve compared

I see children
All around me
Wonder what it would have been like

My young me at the window
Them and you on some bike

Maybe we’d have struggled
Like people can do
But our light shines
It would have shone through

All those walks
Hand in hand
That we never had

All those songs we never sang
What we missed makes me sad

Maybe we’d have struggled
Like people can do
But our light shines
It would have shone through

In a funny kind of way

Andy Stern featuring Greg Blackman

In a funny kind of way
It’s too easy just to say
That, ‘I love you’
Though I do

Cos to fill a room with words
That trip right off the tongue
Is not to love you
But I do

See touching toes in bed
Or listening to what’s said means, ‘I love you’
And I do

Or caring every day
And sharing every day
Shows ‘ I love you’
If that’s what we do

In a funny kind of way
It demands of you to say
That, ‘I need you’
Perhaps I do

Don’t want to wear you down
I’d rather clown around, but not need you

You mean everything to me
You’re my rock my harmony
If that’s, ‘need you’
Then I do

If you being around to say
‘I’m here , ‘are you ok’ means ‘I need you’-then I do

In the cold light of day
Probably better not to say that , ‘I love you’- though it’s true
Cos if I wrote your name in stars and lit it up on Mars
You would shrug-(pause)
That’s what you’d do

Cos from waking through to sleep
You’re the company I keep
That’s ‘I love you’- and I do
It is being there side by side
And holding you tight- that’s , ’I love you’

In the shoes of someone else

Andy Stern featuring Greg Blackman

Tell me how you’d feel
Tell me how you’d feel
If I had nothing to my name
Would you still feel the same

Tell me how you’d feel
Tell me how you’d feel
If my home was on the street
Would you and me still meet

The only thing I know
And all I know for real
Is in the shoes of someone else
I would still love you

In the shoes of someone else
I would still love you

Tell me how you’d feel
Tell me how you’d feel
If I was some big box set star
Would you watch me with your meal

Tell me how you’d feel
Tell me how you’d feel
If my eyes were not coloured blue
Would that change your view

The only thing I know
And all I know for real
Is in the shoes of someone else
I would still love you
In the shoes of someone else
I would still love you

Tell me how you’d feel
Tell me how you’d feel
If I touched wood ten times a day
Would you run away

Tell me how you’d feel
Tell me how you’d feel
If I was sat here old and grey
Would you still want to stay

The only thing I know
And all I know for real
Is in the shoes of someone else
I would still love you

In the shoes of someone else
I would still love you

It’s a land of make believe

Andy Stern featuring Greg Blackman

Can’t believe you’re gone
What I’d give to still be with you
So I close my eyes
And there you are

Strolling hand in hand
Walking through the park one Sunday
Wishing it would never end

But it’s a land of make believe
Where you’re with me
How I wish that ‘make believe’ loving you
Could come true

But what I choose to see
Is my version of reality
Wasn’t yours or you’d be with me
Gotta shake this off
Gotta move on, face the truth
I’m alone
And that’s the proof

That it’s a land of make believe
Where you’re with me
How I wish that ‘make believe’ loving you
Could come true

For me with you
Never had to make up love
Cos it was true
Had no need to
But now I see
Those dreams I have of a life with you
Are a life I blew

So it’s a land of make believe
Where you’re with me
How I wish that ‘make believe’ loving you
Could come true

It’s a land of make believe
Where you’re with me
How I wish that ‘make believe’ loving you
Could come true

Dancing in your soul

Andy Stern featuring Roisin Quinn

Throw back your head
Try to forget the day
It’s nothing now
It’s gone away
So close your eyes
And let the moment stay
The music play
Let your mind stray

Doesn’t matter how you look
It’s only how you feel
Just make the dancing in your soul for real

Doesn’t matter how you look
It’s only how you feel
Just make the dancing in your soul for real

Go fetch some memory
That you have in your heart
And play it back right from the start
And as you feel the beat
And lose yourself
You’ll take control, no one else

Doesn’t matter how you look
It’s only how you feel
Just make the dancing in your soul for real
Doesn’t matter how you look
It’s only how you feel
Just make the dancing in your soul for real

Just leave your worries now and let them stack
Allow the song to drag you back
Sometimes to find some peace
You make some noise
Forget your poise
And make some noise

Doesn’t matter how you look
It’s only how you feel
Just make the dancing in your soul for real
Doesn’t matter how you look
It’s only how you feel
Just make the dancing in your soul for real

A place in my mind

Andy Stern featuring Roisin Quinn

You gotta be kidding
If you think I am listening
I am miles away
Cannot hear a word you say
See my world is breaking
And inside I’m shaking
Try to keep myself sane
Try to dull the pain

So there’s this place in my mind that I find when I’m low
It’s a space in my mind where I go

I’ll often be found there
Can spend too much time there
Dreaming my dreams
of how we could be
My darling’s beside me
We’re happy together
Holding hands
Making plans

If we have a quarrel
And I am all tearful
Can’t take it with me
Got places to be
Won’t ever cry freely
In case the kids see me
But I’ll take my time
And it’ll be fine- just fine

So there’s this place in my mind that I find when I’m low
It’s a space in my mind where I go
So there’s this place in my mind that I find when I’m low
It’s a space in my mind where I go

Looking for you

Andy Stern featuring Greg Blackman

I’m sure I heard an echo
of your voice calling me quietly
I just know it’s your echo
That I found
It wrapped me round in memories we share

Since you’ve been gone
I’ve looked for you
Cos since you’ve been gone I’ve missed you

Sometimes I see your shadow
As silently it follows me
Knows I am empty of love
When I see your shadow
It comforts me , makes me happy
To see you again

Since you’ve been gone
I’ve looked for you
Cos since you’ve been gone I’ve missed you

I feel you’re in our meadow
The wind blew
Know it was you
And touched you again
That place is still our meadow
Just me and you
Forever true
Whether now or then

Since you’ve been gone
I’ve looked for you
Cos since you’ve been gone I’ve missed you
