THIS MACHINE (FourPlay)

So tell me what your TV’s worth to you?
I know we’re always chasing something new
But don’t you wonder what this really means?
Aren’t we more than a part of this machine?

We know the price of everything and yet the worth of none,
But what’s it mean when all is said and done
We pay the price for everything we get the worth of none
But who dies with the most has never won

Ahhh …

So tell me what the sky is worth to you.
And tell me what the seas are worth to you.
You know we’ve only got one mother earth
Now tell me what convenience is wo-o-orth

We know the price of everything and yet the worth of none,
But what’s it mean when all is said and done
We pay the price for everything we get the worth of none
But who dies with the most has never won

Ahhh …

You mean the world to me
And the world means you to me

Mississippi Sinkhole (Music by FourPlay, Lyrics by Lara)
The Mississippi sinkhole will take you down
Down to the devil’s work
The Mississippi sinkhole will take you down
Where man done dug his dirt

The people going down in the mining town
Down to the devil’s work
I said the Mississippi sinkhole will take you down
‘Cos the money done got there first

WISH – by Tim Hollo

Oh the rains the rains are falling now

Oh the rains the rains are failing now

Turning streets to streams

Stronger than they seems

 

Oh the wind the wind
is rising now

Oh the wind the wind is howling now

Tearing through the leaves

Tearing down the trees

 

She said I wish that I'd been born before the rains began to fall

Before the rivers dried, the oceans rose, the fires consumed it all

Before the smoke became a pall

Oh the fires the fires are burning now

Oh the fires the fires are burning now

Taste the ash in the air

Ashes in your hair

 

Oh my darling we CAN’T wish for the sky

Storms are closing in

Storms are closing in

 

Oh the clouds the clouds
are parting now

Air is clearer
grass is greener now

Brighter than it seems

We're wiser than we seem

 

Oh my darling
we CAN reach for the sky

Rise above your fears

Fly above your fears

Walk on through the years

Rise above your fears

wash away your tears

BOUND (Music by FourPlay, Lyrics by Lara Goodridge)

Now make an educated guess
Take a step right… to the left
So that all that we see - is all as it seems

We put his heart… in our hands
Think about it, take it like a man
Now inside the burden I know what it means

We made our beds, And it feels like…
I’m in two pieces, And it hurts like…
All in my head, And it feels like…

Red yellow, bittersweet, nightshade
Ripples on the shores, now I’m unmade
Shadows in the night no it’s not what I dreamed

WE ARE BOUND … BY LOVE

Turn around, stand up, be my man
Come & find me, cut your losses, take my hand
Stand by me, you’re my pillar, I’m your post, you are me

I put my trust in us now, you see
But there’s so -  much - more than you and me
Take this weight inside, it’s getting heavy

We made our beds, And it feels like…
I’m in two pieces, And it hurts like…
All in my head, And it feels like…

Tangerine, copper top, back drop
You bring it with you, that ain’t gonna ever stop
Come on baby I’m your pillar, you’re my post, you are me

WE ARE BOUND … BY LOVE

BUTTERGIRL  Lara Goodridge)

You hurt my feelings, what a fool I’ve been
Punish me when I’m down, I’m not sure it’s sunk in
But I knew it from the start, that you’d wear me down and break my heart
So who am I to blame?

They say everything’s a lesson, well you’d think that I was old enough to know
But you butter me up from your silver lipped cup and I…
I clean forget to say ‘no’
But I knew it from the start, that you’d wear me down and break my heart
So who am I to blame?

But a girl’s gotta have some fun
And I can tire of this party of one
So I play a game of cat and mouse
But I smell a rat in this ole house

It’s a man’s game in this big ole town
I gotta learn to sit out a round
Cos I show my hand, and you,
You show your ace
Oh boy, you play with a mean poker face…

TRUST  (Lara Goodridge)

One wrong step is all I take to this mistake
And now I won’t trust this unruly heart
No, I wont trust this unruly heart

And I’ve said too much
I might be losing touch

And now I won’t trust this unruly heart
No, I wont trust this unruly heart

And it’s one false move and you’re dead
One false move and you’re dead
Yes, it’s one false move and you’re dead
Aaaah…

Oh, false idol, I’m on my knees
Misguided fool for some sweet release
And chance the door
To set me free

And it’s one false move and you’re dead
One false move and you’re dead
Yes, it’s one false move and you’re dead
Aaaah…

EVOLVE OR DECAY
(Lara Goodridge)

I hold no judgement in my heart
But I’m not safe in your arms
And my days of playing hard have passed
But oh, how I’d like to know
What it is to let myself go with you

But I can’t hurt anymore
I won’t be burnt anymore
Flying too close to the sun
No I can’t hurt anymore
I won’t be burnt anymore

But we’ve waited for this moment so long
Can we head for the eye of the storm
Can it all be so wrong?

But I can’t hurt anymore
I won’t be burnt anymore
Flying too close to the sun
No I can’t hurt anymore
I won’t be burnt flying so high
And aiming so low
I’m flying too high
There’s only one way to go

Evolve or decay
Evolve or decay
