you say my strings are out of tune, well, you sold me this guitar and if it doesn’t work that well I’ll never get that far and you think that I can’t hit the notes, I was born with these vocal chords and I’m trying my best with the best recording equipment I can afford because I’ve tried and I’ve tried and I’ve c-c-c-cried but with the cards you’ve dealt me I will always be denied but that’s fine, cos it was everyone’s fault but mine and though it never seemed that way at the time I was innocent of every crime you say I acted like a fool last night, well you were buying the drinks and your generosity’s to blame for my inability to think and if I give you a lift somewhere and my driving’s not the best then it’s not my fault, it’s the examiner who passed my driving test because I’ve tried and I’ve tried and I’ve c-c-c-cried but with the cards you’ve dealt me I will always be denied but that’s fine, cos it was everyone’s fault but mine and though it never seemed that way at the time I was innocent of every crime

Indecent Exposures (free) 02:32
I fell in love with the girl from the camera store but when my camera broke I had no reason to go there any more though I walked past the window every day, it wasn't the same because I never got to hear her say "come back for your pictures at four" I just want to be captured on film with her and at the blink of the shutter we'll make indecent exposures so in a flash, my dreams had been over-exposed by the time I'd saved some money up, her business had been foreclosed I stared through the window at the hand-written sign, it was faded by sunlight but I could read it fine it had not been there long, I suppose I'll admit I lost my focus, but not for very long a poster nearby informed me that she had an exhibition on though her beautiful pictures covered the wall, that wasn't what captured my attention at all... she was smiling at me through the throng

do you ever wonder if you've missed your chance for fame and fortune, or that great romance? do you ever wonder what might have been? well, that's why I'm building this time machine 'cos with a flick of a switch and a flash of light I'm going back in time to put things right I know that it's unorthodox but I will break this paradox

Ifs and Butts (free) 03:15
modern life is full of worry everyone's in such a hurry it's hard to find the time to think these days I've got a secret fantasy that maybe you will share with me I'm going through an imaginative phase cos if I was a goat all my stress and woe would quickly disappear replaced by noble horns and a wispy beard with a mischievious look upon my face and nimble grace I wouldn't fear for my life there's less call for the butcher's knife than if I'd been a cow or pig or sheep I'd spend my days just exploring I'd eat pretty much anything and curl up in a pile of hay to sleep

about

These songs weren't finished - we had a bit of a break from recording when Mandy had her baby, and when we went back to the studio afterwards, our recordings had been lost in a hard drive failure.

Hence most of these tracks are a bit rough around the edges, or in some cases right through the middle.
