The Storm 03:57
They say a storm is coming Can’t they see that it’s already here Cos the wind’s been blowing And the trees have been falling for some time They say the children don’t know what they’re asking for But they’re not children anymore No we’re not children anymore They say “let’s build a wall to protect our little homes” But they can’t see that their wall is full of holes It’s full of holes They say a storm is coming Can’t they see that it’s already here Cos the rain’s been falling And the flooding doesn’t look like it will ease They say the flames are high and all must help put them out But they don’t feel them burn No they don’t feel the burn They say the bells are ringing out into the night But it seems that they’re not listening to their sound Are you listening? They say “a storm is coming” Can’t they see that it’s already here Cos there’s been thunder and lightning Lighting up the sky for all to see Each old dog can keep learning I find new tricks every day The times will keep on changin’ Dylan’s words won’t fade away They’re trying to divide us With their same old tricks and lies That the things that do unite us Are greater than the things that do divide They say a storm is coming Can’t they see that it’s already here

Always 03:35
Always, Always got a story for me always So take me, take me through the pages left before me Each chapter reveals How the heroine feels As she wakes up to find her true love Hasn’t got very far He’s forgot his guitar And the three chords he knows aren’t enough But I’m always trying to reach you With so many songs I could teach you If you’re still singing, I will be winning too In a story we could make come true Always, You always take a pretty picture always, But my turn Clutters up the cutting room but I’ll learn They’re still straight from the heart But hardly pieces of art Will you hang them in your gallery But each piece that I start Seems to tear us a part, Look at you kid, there’s mud in your eye But I’m always trying to reach you With so many songs I could teach you If you’re still singing, I will be winning too In a story we could make come true I just don’t know where to start To turn a blank page into a piece that’s worthy of your love Can our unmade bed really be art but Cos of you I’ll keep striving, to create something charming, and sing That I’m always trying to reach you With so many songs I could teach you

As I’m getting old, I find the things that we were told Are not quite right. And the actions of my past Are behaviours that can’t last I’ve got to fight. But not with a punch or kick I need this change to stick Leave my old ways behind This routine of putting down And shaming with just a frown I must get out of my mind Out of my mind. I used to think that I Was one of the good guys But that’s not quite true Ignorance kept me blind To this truth that I now find But that’s no excuse. These habits are hard to break But a new path I have to take To restore my own pride My language I have to change Til this new way won’t feel so strange And I’m on the right side On the right side Ooooooooooh Now I admit that I was wrong Even though it took to long But this is a start As there’s so much more to learn I’ve lit a fire now it burns in my heart I’m leaving the old me behind To be the person I was in my mind From my mistakes I will no longer hide.

Don’t it feel like the world is going to shit When every story on the news just makes you wanna be sick So much hate and division got me questioning humanity Well it seems like we could all use a strong dose of positivity So let’s spend a day popping bubble wrap or watching cute cat videos Or grab some friends and reminisce about our good times forgetting our lows Or just sing along with me it’s an easy chorus to learn You don’t have to sing in tune just sing loudly forget your concerns la da da da da Now i know that it seems simple but you must admit it made you feel good to let go of all your troubles and regress back to your childhood cos as we get older some get cruel we try so hard to look cool and letting go becomes a danger cos we don’t want to look like a fool So if you judge this song badly cos i look like a dick that’s your right but not one care is given to your opinion of what i look like so let’s have another sing it’s not hard and the words haven’t changed And shut out the thoughts and fears that someone might think that we’re strange
