Track Name: barry warne ~ all we hide
I fail to notice tail lights on your Lotus flare down 401
and signal the end of fun and
turn like the end of summer
love is such a bummer
and then just a number you call when you need a friend
that's all
all we hide
all we hide

time blurs disaster were you slave or master?
pain just commodity to gain and set you free
you burn your ladder rope made out of higher dope
you smoke to quell days you recall
when no one knew your name
that's all
all we hide
all we hide

I fail devotion and i claim devotion until love collects her loan
leaves me poorer than without house without land
when I refuse to be the man who will change

tied to the tether torn in foul weather
storm rain on lines with you and i entwined
so hold my slipping hand while the rockin' band
plays old auld lang syne
this is goodbye
all we hide
all we hide
Track Name: barry warne ~ roll like a saint
why is always one sunset willing to be tomorrow gone?
why is always one angel pretty, why is one always lost?

you better go
you better throw
you better roll like a saint

haste ye listen well, cupid weaves a spell
shower your lusty eyes with stars
if you forfeit dreams when you wrestle days
holler 'love is all' when you die

you better go
you better throw
you better roll like a saint

cartwheeling sharpened knife, steal a moon for me
from Mars a symphony - no love is lost
surprise is empty miles ending in smiles
true love bliss and chaos

you better go
you better throw
you better roll like a saint
Track Name: barry warne ~ hiding the rain
I know the day i die they'll just throw away my life
all the lies I hid away they won't even show to my wife
now I never did her wrong but neither was i strong
to make the sunshine stay around I chased wine, women and song

try, try, try hiding the rain
try, try, try hiding, try hiding the rain

they say the truth is sweet though I found lies are sweeter
always one big mess so I guess honesty is neater
the kind of sharpened lies that always cut me down to size
need only one glance from lucid shining eyes

try, try, try hiding the rain
try, try, try hiding, try hiding the rain

the fool that's every man will build himself a dam
to hide away the rain then go to wash his hands
remember all that is stone will crumble and be gone
and the deluge flooding you won't be enough to drown your wrongs

try, try, try hiding the rain
try, try, try hiding, try hiding the rain
Track Name: barry warne ~ don't derail
it is like this, you shine like a star I follow
in our night you out-shine like apollo
must say this, if I fail to measure
in our night you outshine treasure

don't derail

miles denying being together
belt of orion our solar tether
far constellation and no one gets far
bare these frustrations and guide by your star

don't derail

I try to explain some scars I retain
my life must remain a runaway train


I try to explain my life is a runaway train
some scars remain a runaway train

just try to say it is like this
you shine night and day
my guiding polaris
one star light long comet tails
one star bright you light up my rails

won't derail
won't derail
Track Name: barry warne ~ taller
stage is set for discontentment and it takes its toll
wages wage their war upon my soul
rainbows fade before you can reach them
children grow before you can teach them
can anybody tell me how to get off this freeway

I'm taller than I was before you found me
I'll follow when you wander where it's sunny
a better friend I've never had or never knew
I'm taller when I stand beside you

down to hell to sell what little I have left
down to tell the well those wishes were just theft
beauty fades the more you hold youth
wisdom grows the more you're told truth
can anybody lend me a phone and I'll make my one call out

I'm taller than I was before you found me
I'll follow when you wander where it's sunny
a better friend I've never had or never knew
I'm taller when I stand beside you

day to day these are the weights we grapple
we only want a few bites of the apple

I'm taller than I was before you found me
I'll follow when you wander where it's sunny
a better friend I've never had or never knew
I'm taller when I stand beside you
Track Name: barry warne ~ monalisa roseheart
how do I feel between two worlds
how do I feel with the way you feel
how do I feel with the way I feel
when you sing
when you bring
everything in to my life that I'm missing
every breath on your lips the wind is kissing

and it feels like I need you
your the best thing that ever happened to me
please be mona lisa
yours is the smile that mystifies me

how I do feel this drives me mad with desire
from inside the fire rising to go higher higher
than this rose unfolding my heart unfolding
rose heart unfolding two hearts unfolding

it feels like I need you
your the best thing that ever happened to me
please be mona lisa
yours is the smile that mystifies me

how do I fall without you there to catch me
how do I win without you there to match me
when you sing when you bring everything
into my life that I'm missing
every song from your lips the wind is singing

and it feels like I need you
your the best thing that ever happened to me
please be mona lisa
yours is the smile that mystifies me
yeah yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: barry warne ~ traded
between torn sheets of finance and favour
you found her one more heaped up mess
one bloodless stone of cheque books and past dues
that you said made you care less

traded

she wallowed in self anguish and pity
too low to go for go getters like you
she watched you leave flat cold two days later
so bold your tone, you slithered through

traded

traded low down for high humiliation
traded family ties to be your possession
traded rent due for those stocks you sold her
traded freedom for submission
just so you
just so you would hold her

her plea for help like asking the assassin
please please please pull the trigger once for free
no go please go
your barrel won't have one more notch for her

traded
