about

ian harvey Diss, UK

so many things in life change for so many reasons but if there's one thing that remains a straight path through my life and everything that goes on in it, that's music...a song or a tune i wrote at some random point in time will tell me a story, document what was going on at that time and enhance that memory...i'm constantly exploring styles & methods and holding to my own path... ... more

Track Name: coffee
just speak
and i'm sure something, somewhere, hears
just speak
and those muddy waters will disappear

i cannot believe in my luck these days
i cannot believe in my love these days

needed a hand
and coffee picked me up
needed a friend
someone to fill my empty cup

i cannot believe in my luck these days
i cannot believe in my love these days
Track Name: they can't touch us
gonna turn off all the telephones
facebook, skype & email too
gonna make sure
the outside folk
cannot get through

lock the doors
close the blinds

the outside folk won't get us down
the outside folk mean trouble
outside folk can mess around
but they can't touch us in our bubble

put up a fence
about 8 feet high
tell the post we don't want no more
tell the human race
interaction has become a chore

put up a sign
don't call here

the outside folk won't get us down
the outside folk mean trouble
outside folk can mess around
but they can't touch us in our bubble
Track Name: like dancers
we move like dancers
gliding round the floor
the steps come naturally
like never before

oooh

i'll hold you, you hold me
we'll move like we are one
face to face and toe to toe
until the music's done

ooh
Track Name: hold on
all around you
without cease
howling winds of change
that never ease
as you stand there
chaos high
hold your ground there
within the eye

all around you
push and pull
constant winds of change
feed you til you're full
as you sit there
madness high
hold your ground there
within the eye

hold on
hold on

all around you
night and day
relentless winds of change
will not be held at bay
as you lay there
sadness high
hold your ground there
within the eye

hold on
hold on
Track Name: passing time
lining up bottles and knocking them down i go
quietly crazy
waiting for you to come round
and round in my head
go the thoughts
and i'm lining up bottles
and knocking them down
Track Name: cold sweat
cold sweat
laying there fearful
what if
you are not there

cold sweat
choked up and tearful
what if
you never were
Track Name: taken such a long time
oh it's taken such a long time
to get to the point i'm at
could see it in the distance
but i couldn't see the welcome mat

read my future in the tea leaves
it can't be relied upon
you rinse the cup and you start again
and the future is a different one

now i
am walking through the door
and i
have never been here before

oh it's taken such a long time
to see the wood for the trees
waiting for the universe
to hear my pleas

but the journey's worth the taking
for all i have seen
because time it was perfecting
a dream within a dream

now i
am standing in your gaze
and i
will be here all my days

oh it's taken such a long time
Track Name: our sun
left on our own
we would smile we would while away
days that were long
and the songs we would sing would be
cheery and never a cloud
would cover our sun

the two us get along
quietly building the rest of our lives
and the song that we sing it is
cheery and never a cloud
comes to cover our sun

left on our own
we laugh and we smile away
days that are long
and the songs that we sing they
cheery and never a cloud
can cover our sun
Track Name: the story of us
we met in a coffee shop
you told me 'i don't want serious'
so we started a relationship
totally regardless

we did all the lovely things
late nights and lie ins
walked and talked and found our feet
laughed like we would never stop

watched the sun rise from the sea
listened to the waves crash
music, parties, pictures
the love we had spread like a rash

at five months we moved up a gear
decided on just one roof
got a little scary
if i'm gonna tell the truth

found our groove and carried on
summer was a blur
festivals and fun for us
we couldn't have enjoyed more

changed our beat and broke away
got a little straighter
you seized a little dream for you
and i became your waiter

life found tests to try us out
broken foot and bullies
but you know we faced them all
passed with flying colours

miranda jazz and david b
engaged within a play
now both of us can focus on
ch ch ch changes all the way

the story of us
