Bareback Rider
Adrian Gurvitz

I am the clown in the show 
She is star star don't you know 
She is the knife in my life 
she's heaven she's the rider 
You know that she's heaven 
You know that she's heaven 
She's the rider 

A natural born jester like me 
Hopes to make someone someone like you 
Plays all his cards right up front 
She's heaven she's the rider 

Bareback she's the rider 
She rides for you not me 
We don't know what's inside her 
It's just for her to see 
I'm the undercover lover 
But she'll never know 
Bareback she's the rider 
Rider of the show 

I'm the one that is small 
She has the look look like them all 
Hides behind make up and laughs 
She's heaven she's the rider 
You know that she's heaven 
She's the rider 

So on and on I go 
Feeling the love love in me grow 
Seeing the sun I am the one 
She's heaven she's the rider 

She was the fox on the run 
I was the hunt the hunt she won 
I was the fool on the hill to heaven she's the rider 
You know that she's heaven 
She's the rider 
Heaven she's the rider 

In Dreams
Adrian Gurvitz

In dreams you know I'm learning 
All the time I keep turning 
Trying to be the one 
Trying to be the one 
Trying to be the one 

But you know I wish I could show you 
Just what is inside my head 
That makes me feel 
That makes me feel 
The way I do 
The way I do 

In dreams sometimes I'm aching 
Hoping for someone to wake me 
Running for my life 
Running for my life 
All night 

But you know how hard it can be 
Living like a dreamer like me 
Sometimes afraid 
Oh, so afraid 
In my dreams 

Lost In Space
Graeme Edge

I'm just in space, like the rest of my race 
Changing cells from day I was born 
But I'm still the same, though the meat has all changed 
Something's holding me together that's for sure 

I find myself suspended in a vacuum 
A vacuum that goes either way 
But there must be something else to it 
Because the sun comes to me every day 

When I see the truth I see it with my own imagery 
It's my brain lying, trying to make me see 
That the truth is so big that it runs eternity 
And small enough to fit inside me 

Far away past a star into the void inside of me 
Or smaller past the atoms that have nothing inside 
Just the same as a car or a leaf or a star 
Cannot move without command 
Something moves me and without it I'd be no more living 
Than a hole in the sand 

Hold my hand, feel its warm touch from the fire inside 
Hold my heart, feel its beating, how I can't decide 
I don't control my sleeping or when I dream away 
But there must be something to it 
For I wake up everyday 

Have You Ever Wondered
Graeme Edge

Have you ever wondered what you would do 
If the world was sweet and kind exactly like you?
Would you be afraid 
Of what you got 
Would you try to own a tree?
Well you cannot 

Tell me the fruit is yours grown off a tree?
Tell me you grew and don't you see 
You didn't grow it you're not the sun or the rain 
And if you went away it would grow again 

Sometimes I wonder 
What it is I see 
Is it the world around us?
Or is it me?
I lie awake wondering what went wrong
The world was ours for a song

My Life's Not Wasted
Adrian Gurvitz

My life's not wasted I'm trying to give all that I've got
My life's not wasted I'm trying to love you, I need you 
To need what I want 

Try not to hurt me with problems 
'Cause problems ain't what I want 
They'll just distract me from trying to love you 
I need you to need what I want 

I've got to try before I die to make these dreams come true 
All those years and all those tears 
I have come on thru 
I have come on thru 

My life's not wasted I'm trying to give all that I've got 
My life's not wasted I'm trying to love you, I need you 
To need what I want 

The Tunnel
Graeme Edge; Adrian & Paul Gurvitz


~~ Instrumental ~~



Gew Janna Woman
Adrian Gurvitz

Gew Janna heavy woman makes me feel so cold 
Gew Janna Sister Anna somethin' she sold 
Those memories always flowing flying so real 
Orbit me high Gew Janna until until until I 
Until I die 

Gew Janna why did you leave me 
Do do me magic lover do do me well 
Laid back with sweat and waiting release my hell 
Hell ain't the kind of feeling I want to feel 

Orbit me high Gew Janna until until until I 
Until I die 
Gew Janna why did you leave me 

And then I saw a vision of the world before me 
Like a dream I dreamed a million times 
And the thrill when I was there 
Believe me I was high so high 

Gew Janna heavy woman makes me feel so cold 
Gew Janna Sister Anna somethin' she sold 
Those memories always flowing flying so real 
Orbit me high Gew Janna until until until I 
Until I die 

Shotgun
Adrian Gurvitz

Far off in a distant land 
A man lying dead in the sand 
Lying by his side was a song 
Written down on a parchment fair 

Overgrown with aging hair 
You could see this man died alone 

From riding shotgun on the 4.42 
From riding shotgun on the 4.42 

Riding shotgun was his dream 
But he's fallen dead it seems 
Riding shotgun on the 4.42 

When the sun it got too hot 
I was glad of what I'd got 
Living on the food that I found 
Twenty minutes left to go 

Another town's in sight you know 
Think I'll rest my boots while I can 

From riding shotgun on the 4.42 
From riding shotgun on the 4.42 

Here comes Lucy Springer 
You know that she's a ringer 
She'll take you for a ride for awhile 
You know she looks fancy 

Much more slick than Nancy 
You know you'll have to pay for a smile 

From riding shotgun on the 4.42 
From riding shotgun on the 4.42 

I know that I haven't been mean 
And I always kept my sixguns clean 
And I feel I'm at the end of my road 
I'll make way for someone new 

Do you think it could be you 
As I lie face down dead in the road 

Riding shotgun on the 4.42 
Riding shotgun on the 4.42 

Somthing We'd Like To Say
Graeme Edge

There's something we'd like to say 
About the way that we feel today 
You know we'd just like to float away 
In the end it must be that way 

You know that nothing is real or true 
Unless it happened to me or you 
And you just have to come on through
You know there's nothing else you can do 

Last night I nearly died 
I nearly cried 
My heart inside me aches me 
Takes me 
Breaks me 
Fakes me so 
No sign of love no hope of anything 
BONUS TRACK RELEASED ON CD
We Like To Do It
Graeme Edge

We like to
We like to do it
We like to do it all the time

We like to
We like to do it
We like to do it all the time

And when we've done it
You know my honey
You know that you will feel so fine

And when we've done it
You know my honey
You know that you will feel so fine

No one seems to understand us
The way we always carry on 
Lying on our backs
Painting the cracks
Basking in the mid-day sun

We like to
We like to do it
We like to do it all the time

We like to
We like to do it
We like to do it all the time

And when we've done it
You know my honey
You know that you will feel so fine

We like to have fun
We like to have sun
The way it always was before
So now we'll take our chance
And go live on the land
And there we'll have so much fun

I'll feel so free, just you and me
Living on the land of the Lord
And the way things they are
Will be better by far
Living the way we did before

We like to
We like to do it
We like to do it all the time

We like to
We like to do it
We like to do it all the time

And when we've done it
You know my honey...
