“Winter in America” released by Doug Ashdown

The harbour’s misty in the morning love, oh, how I miss December
The frangipani opens up to kiss the salty air
I know you’re gettin’ ready for the office
I suppose he’s still there with you, sharing our morning sun
Winter in America is cold and I just keep growing older
I wish I could have known enough of love to leave love enough alone

I’ve learned something of love I wish I’d known before you left me
But it’s funny how you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
And I hope you’re getting all the love you ever wanted
But I wish I was there with you, sharing our morning sun

I wake into the sadness of the rain and making love to strangers
And wishing I had known enough of love to leave love enough alone
Winter in America is cold and I just keep growing older
I wish I could have known enough of love to leave love enough alone
Winter in America is cold and I just keep growing older
I wish I could have known enough of love to leave love enough alone

“Lullaby” released by Shawn Mullins

She grew up with
The children of the stars
In the Hollywood hills and the boulevard
Her parents threw big parties
Everyone was there
They hung out with folks like
Dennis Hopper, Bob Seger, Sonny and Cher

Now, she feels safe
In this bar on Fairfax
And from the stage I can tell that
She can’t let go and she can’t relax
And just before
She hangs her head to cry
I sing to her a lullaby, I sing

Everything’s gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Everything’s gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Rockabye

She still lives with her mom
Outside the city
Down that street about a half a mile
And all her friends tell her
She’s so pretty
But she’d be a whole lot prettier
If she smiled once in a while
’cause even her smile
Looks like a frown
She’s seen her share of devils
In this angel town

But, everything’s gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Everything’s gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Rockabye

I told her I ain’t so sure
About this place
It’s hard to play a gig in this town
And keep a straight face
Seems like everyone here’s got a plan
It’s kind of like Nashville with a tan, but,

Everything’s gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Everything’s gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye

Everything’s gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Everything’s gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye, rockabye, bye, bye
Bye, bye

‘Prince Planet’ – Television: Theme song

Prince Planet!

No one can compare, to the prince who wears, a medallion on his chest.
Using all his might, changing wrong to right, Prince Planet, he’s the best.
Now it’s no surprise, that he fights bad guys, and he makes the bad guys pay
Whether day or night, like a flash of light, Prince Planet’s on his way!

Here comes Prince Planet, Prince Planet!!

Oh the things he’ll do, he’ll astonish you, Prince Planet, he’s the best.
With a meteor, with a dinosaur, with a damsel in distress
Right before your eyes, from out of the skies, comes the hero of the day
Out of the outer space, now to take his place, Prince Planet’s on his way!

Here comes Prince Planet, Prince Planet!!

“Farewell Aunty Jack” released by Grahame Bond (Vocals by Rory O’Donoghue)

Farewell, Aunty Jack
We know you’ll be back
Though you’re ten feet tall you don’t scare us at all
You’re big, bold and tough
But you’re not so rough
There’s a scream as you plummet away

Aunty Jack: Goodbye, me little lovelies!
And don’t forget to tune in next week to the show,
because if you don’t, I’m going to come round to your house,
and I’m going to rip your bloody arms off.
And I will too. Don’t forget it.

She rides a black bike
Aunty Jack: I do.
And drives through the night
She’s big, round and fat but don’t dare tell her that
Aunty Jack: I bloody well aren’t!
Else she’ll turn so mean
Her glove starts to gleam
There’s a scream as she plummets away

Aunty Jack: Do you want a good smack in the mouth?
Oh farewell, Aunty Jack
Don’t you know you’ll be back
Though you’re ten feet tall you don’t scare us at all
You’re big, bold and tough
But you’re not so rough
There’s a scream as you plummet away

“Everyday is like Sunday” released by Morrissey

Trudging slowly over wet sand
Back to the bench where your clothes were stolen
This is the coastal town
That they forgot to close down
Armageddon, come Armageddon!
Come, Armageddon! Come!

Everyday is like Sunday
Everyday is silent and grey

Hide on the promenade
Etch a postcard :
“How I Dearly Wish I Was Not Here”
In the seaside town
That they forgot to bomb
Come, come, come, nuclear bomb

Everyday is like Sunday
Everyday is silent and grey

Trudging back over pebbles and sand
And a strange dust lands on your hands
(And on your face)
(On your face)
(On your face)
(On your face)

Everyday is like Sunday
“Win yourself a cheap tray”
Share some greased tea with me
Everyday is silent and grey

“Running Up That Hill” released by Placebo [Kate Bush cover]

It doesn’t hurt me.
You wanna feel how it feels?
You wanna know, know that it doesn’t hurt me?
You wanna hear about the deal I’m making?
You be running up that hill
You and me be running up that hill

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building.
If I only could, oh…

You don’t want to hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware that I’m tearing you asunder.
There is thunder in our hearts, baby.
So much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don’t we?

You, be running up that hill
You and me, be running up that hill
You and me won’t be unhappy.

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building,
If I only could, oh…

‘C’mon, baby, c’mon, c’mon, darling,
Let me steal this moment from you now.
C’mon, angel, c’mon, c’mon, darling,
Let’s exchange the experience, oh…’

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems

If I only could, be running up that hill.

“God of Wine” released by Third Eye Blind

Every thought that I repent
There’s another chip you haven’t spent
And you’re cashing them all in
Where do we begin to get clean again
Can we get clean again

I walk home alone with you
And the mood you’re born into
Sometimes you let me in
And I take it on the chin
I can’t get clean again
I want to know, can we get clean again

The god of wine comes crashing through the headlights of a car
That took you farther than you thought you’d ever want to go
We can’t get back again
We can’t get back again
She takes a drink and then she waits
The alcohol it permeates
And soon the cells give way, and cancels out the day

I can’t keep it all together
I know, I know, I know, I know
I can’t keep it all together
And the siren’s song that is your madness
Holds a truth I can’t erase
All alone on your face

Every glamorous sunrise
Throws the planets out of line
A star sign out of whack, a fraudulent zodiac
And the God of Wine is crouched down in my room
You let me down, I said it, now I’m going down
And you’re not even around
And I said no no no …

I can’t keep it all together
I know, I know, I know, I know
I can’t keep it all together
And there’s a memory of a window
Looking through I see you
Searching for something I could never give you
And there’s someone who understands
You more than I do
A sadness I can’t erase
All alone on your face
