Next Friday Night 

Words & Music by Elaine Lennon

 

Each Friday night they'd sneak away when no-one noticed
Down by the old boat shed he held her tight while they kissed
And danced to songs that played on his dad's radio
She made him swear that he would never let her go

He feels alive with her, a gift in every minute
Can't imagine living life without her in it
The music ends he softly kisses her goodnight
Winks and smiles and says until same time same place next Friday night

 

With 9 to 5's they work to build a life together
Raising a family with a love that lasts forever
And once a week they steal some time to be alone
To dance together and sing songs they've made their own

 

He feels alive with her a gift in every minute
Can't imagine living life without her in it
The music ends he softly kisses her just right
Winks and smiles and says until same time same place next Friday night

 

Now she’s passed he takes her picture out that old frame
They dance together once again, he whispers her name
He holds her close as he puts on their favourite songs
Closes his eyes and he can swear he still hears her sing along

 

He feels alive again but only for those minutes
He forgets what life is like without her in it
The music ends he puts her picture back just right
Winks and smiles and says until same time same place next Friday night

Trouble 

Words & Music by Elaine Lennon

 

I'm in trouble, yes I am
I'm in trouble ’cos love was not in my plan

Temptation is my fast train to Hell
Temptation keeps ringing my bell
Temptation, the train just left the station
I jumped on board, this is not gonna end well

 

I'm in trouble, oh yes I am
I'm in trouble, love was not in my plan
Now I'm in trouble, call for help quick on the double
Heart’s in trouble again

 

Desire stole the sail from my boat
Desire pushed me overboard
Desire set the lifeboats on fire
Left me to drown, no sign of shore

 

I'm in trouble, oh yes I am
I'm in trouble, love was not in my plan
Now I'm in trouble, call for help quick on the double
Heart’s in trouble …

 

Train ain’t slowin’ down got my heart in a spin

Gonna have to swim through this mess desire got me in

 

I'm in trouble...yes I am
I'm in trouble, love was not in my plan
Now I'm in trouble, call for help quick on the double
Heart’s in trouble..

I'm in trouble, call for help quick on the double
‘Cos that trouble...that trouble…oh…just took me by the hand

Only Love Can Break Your Heart 

Words & Music by Elaine Lennon

 

No silver needle, thread of gold, can sew a hem on stories still untold
Of all the things that love can be; the miracles, the tragedies, oh no
Along that winding road, through the tunnel t’wards the light
Hearts have broken many times, but love’s still worth the fight

 

‘Cos only love can make you fly above the clouds to sun-kissed skies of dreamy blue
Only love can break your fall, patch you up make you feel whole if love is true
But only love can softly pull your seams apart
Only love can break your heart

 

One day I know I’ll find the one, who’ll steal me from old heartbreak’s arms
‘Till then I know I’ll be just fine, I’ll mend this heart one stitch at a time
‘Cos I’ve known love and I’ve known loss, the easy and the tough
I’ll chance the bitter for the sweet, I’m not givin’ up on love

 

‘Cos only love can make you fly above the clouds to sun-kissed skies of dreamy blue
Only love can break your fall, patch you up make you feel whole if love is true
But only love can softly pull your seams apart
Only love can break your heart…

 

Can build you up, can tear you down
Can make you feel so lost then make you feel so found

 

Only love can softly pull your seems apart
Only love can break your heart
Only love can softly pull your seems apart
Only love can break your heart

THIS

Words & Music by Elaine Lennon

 

Nobody told me about you
Even if they had I would not listen to what they said
You got me speeding in the wrong lane
Dark is the road ahead

 

Lord only knows the lights that I have gone through
Lord only knows the signs that I have missed
Lord only knows the roads that I have taken
Each road has lead to this

 

Nobody heard me when I cried
Even if they had they would not listen to what I said
I chose the wrong path at the crossroads
This is my last dead end

 

Lord only knows the lights that I have gone through
Lord only knows the signs that I have missed
Lord only knows the roads that I have taken
Each road has lead to this

 

Each road has lead to this

 

Nobody told me about you
Even if they had I would not listen to what they said.

Alone Here With Me

Words & Music by Elaine Lennon

 

The bottle lies empty, there's one glass the fingerprints mine
If anyone asks you, tell them that I'm doing fine
It's just that I'm finding it hard, to find words to say how I feel
Wading my way through the dark, praying that these wounds will heal

 

Feels like tonight's sent to try me, pulls me back can't move on
Got no fight left inside me, strength of the day is all gone
No tonight I don't wanna be alone here with me

 

A dream that was shattered with only one heartbeat to blame
A world left in tatters, a picture that fell from the frame
It ended before it could start, I'm trying hard to understand
Now there's a scar on my heart…I still feel the touch of your hand

 

Feels like tonight's sent to try me, pulls me back can't move on
Got no fight left inside me, strength of the day is all gone
No tonight I don't wanna be alone here with me

 

In the arms of the bottle I’ll drift off to sleep tonight
I pray my strength will return with the morning light

 

It just feels like tonight's sent to try me, pulls me back can't move on
Got no fight left inside me, strength of the day is all gone
No tonight I don't wanna be, no tonight I don't wanna be,

No not tonight I don't wanna be, alone here with me

Alone here with me

Alone here with me

Alone here with me…

She’s Got You

Words & Music by Hank Cochran

I've got your picture

That you gave to me

And it's signed with love

Just like it used to be

The only thing different

The only thing new

I've got your picture

She's got you

 

I've got the records

That we used to share

And they still sound the same

As when you were here

The only thing different

The only thing new

I've got the records

She's got you

 

I've got your memory

Or, has it got me

I really don't know

But I know, it won't let me be

 

I've got your class ring

That proved you cared

And it still looks the same

As when you gave it, dear

The only thing different

The only thing new

I've got these little things

She's got you

 

I've got your memory

Or, has it got me

I really don't know

But I know, it won't let me be

 

I've got your class ring

That proved you cared

And it still looks the same

As when you gave it, dear

The only thing different

The only thing new

I've got these little things

She's got you

I've got these little things

She's got you

Little Bird Little Sailor

Words & Music by Elaine Lennon

 

(Breathe in breathe out)

(Breathe in breathe out)

 

Little bird there’s a big world out there to be found
Got your wings all ready but your feet won’t leave the ground
Don’t let your fear of fallin' stop you taking to your sky
Once you learn to fall with grace then you’ll truly fly

 

What will be will be
What will be will be
Breathe in breathe out, lose the doubt, have some faith and believe
What will be will be

 

(Breathe in breathe out)

(Breathe in breathe out)

 

Little sailor storm’s a brewin’, deep desire for something more
Got your boat all ready but it just won’t leave the shore
You know starin' at the water ain’t goin’ get you across your sea
In your boat, safe in port, is not where you’re meant to be…no no

 

What will be will be
What will be will be
Breathe in breathe out, lose the doubt, have some faith and believe
What will be will be

 

So just enjoy the wind beneath you, have some fun, jump in the waves!
Little bird little sailor time to see of what you are made

 

What will be will be
What will be will be
Breathe in breathe out, lose the doubt, have some faith and believe
What will be will be

What will be will be (yeah hey!)
So breathe in breathe out and don’t take yourself so seriously

Breathe in breathe out and don’t take yourself so seriously

 

(Breathe in breathe out)

In Songs We Live On

(feat. Eugene Tedeschi)

Words by Elaine Lennon. Music by Elaine Lennon/Eugene Tedeschi

Remember we’d count the stars at night
Fly to the moon on magic carpet rides
In cardboard ships we’d sail across the seven seas
Faces and shapes in clouds we’d find

We’d sing and dance, lose track of time
Our little banks you filled up with memories

We smile, we know we are loved
Etched in our hearts every kiss every hug
And each night when we sing our songs
We know in songs we live on

Now younger eyes count those stars at night
Fly to the moon on magic carpet rides
Those cardboard ships carry two new crew across the seas
Faces and shapes in clouds we find
We sing and dance, lose track of time
Their little banks I fill up with memories

They smile, they know they are loved
Etched in their hearts every kiss every hug
And each night when we sing our songs
We know in songs live on

You and Me

Words & Music by Elaine Lennon

Somewhere in the Ocean
Far out at sea
In our little sailboat
We drift gently on the breeze

Starlight guides us through the dark of night
Moon he smiles down from his endless sky
As we dance on a shimmering sea
Just you and me

Troubles they don't find us
Woes they let us be
In our little sailboat
We've all that we'll ever need

Starlight guides us through the dark of night
Moon he smiles down from his endless sky
As we dance on a shimmering sea
Just you and me

So if life gets hard as it can be
And you need a little space to breathe
Close your eyes in your mind there you'll be
In our little boat adrift on the sea


Come sail with me

Just you and me

 

Starlight guides us through the dark of night
Moon he smiles down from his endless sky
As we dance on a shimmering sea
In our little boat just you and me

Come sail with me


Just you and me

Just you and me

Fear (Breakup Song)

Words & Music by Elaine Lennon

Everybody keeps telling me I’m at my worst when you surround me
I give in and you bring me down

Can barely breathe been treading water since the day you found me

It’s like you get a kick watching me drown

 

Fear, this is our breakup song
You've been hangin' round way too long
I’m gonna fight you until you’re gone

I don’t need you so just move on
Fear, this is our breakup song

 

Took a while to realise you were the bad choice I was making

Now I’m not gonna let you have your say

I’m standing tall here on my own I’m not yours for the taking

It’s time I did things my own way

 

Fear, this is our breakup song
You've been hangin' round way too long
I’m gonna fight you until you’re gone

I don’t need you so just move on
Fear, this is our breakup song

 

So in the middle of the night when you come crying telling me we’re not through,
Whatever you say that I can’t do well that’s exactly what I have to...

 

Fear, this is our breakup song
You've been hangin' round way too long
I’m gonna fight you until you’re gone

I don’t need you so just move on, Fear

 

Oh Fear, this is our breakup song cos I’ve moved on

Oh Fear, Fear, this is our breakup song

By Your Side

Words & Music by Elaine Lennon

When you see your smile reflected on another’s face
When you lose the battle but win the war with honour and grace
When you find the strength you needed inside
Know that I am here by your side

But when you can’t count the stars for the clouds in your sky
If they try to clip your wings like they don’t want you to fly
When it feels like your boat washed away with the tide
Be strong, I’m here by your side

 

When you finally see the woods beyond those trees
When the puzzle pieces start to fall in place with ease
When you let go and just enjoy the ride
Know that I am here by your side

 

But when you can’t count the stars for the clouds in your sky
If they try to clip your wings like they don’t want you to fly

When it feels like your boat washed away with the tide

Be strong, I’m here by your side

Know you're not alone, this too shall pass

Through good and bad you're not on your own

 

But when you can’t count the stars for the clouds in your sky
If they try to clip your wings like they don’t want you to fly
When it feels like your boat washed away with the tide
Be strong, I’m here by your side
