Track Name: The Truth
You hide your lies behind your eyes
You hide your heart, you play your part
Inside of me is what I see
The truth I knew, it's all about you

It's all locked inside of me
All the things I'll ever see
What's all locked inside of you?
You broke my heart in two

You said I'm wrong, your words were strong
You said it's me, you said I'll see
Inside of you is what I knew
The truth, the song I wished was wrong

Tim Chaplin 1998
Track Name: This Road Was Made For The Rain To Run Down
You hide your lies behind your eyes
You hide your heart, you play your part
Inside of me is what I see
The truth I knew, it's all about you

It's all locked inside of me
All the things I'll ever see
What's all locked inside of you?
You broke my heart in two

You said I'm wrong, your words were strong
You said it's me, you said I'll see
Inside of you is what I knew
The truth, the song I wished was wrong

Tim Chaplin 1998
Track Name: Let's All Make Friends
Let's all make friends
It's all gonna be alright
And I'll tell you something
Gonna tell you something
I can't pretend
It don't keep me up all night
And I'll show you something
Gonna show you something

Why can't you just make friends?
Wish we could just be friends
Let's all make friends

Message to send:
"It's all gonna be alright"
Let me tell you something
Gotta tell you something
'Cause in the end
Two wrongs just don't make a right
Let me show you something
Gotta show you something

Tim Chaplin 2002
Track Name: Jemma With A J
Let me sing a sad, sad song
About time - it's been too long
Girl's got something silver and gold
I'm on my own, so don't be long
Music's right, the words are wrong
I need something solid I can hold

There's something in my way again today
Obstacles, obstructions in my way
Don't know what to do
Always thought we'd make it through
Do you remember, Jemma with a J?

To anyone with half a heart
How can this not break it apart?
Break it apart
Inside of you, inside of me
There's just too much that we can't see
We can't see

Tim Chaplin 2002
Track Name: Don't Know Why I Don't Know Why
You said you'd be around
If it's raining in my mind
I'll be precious in your eyes
For a moment in your time

There's a king in a castle
There's a prince there, you'll say
But we're both such a hassle
Only gets in the way
Of the king in the castle
And the prince and you say
That I'm oh such a hassle
Only get in the way

'Cause you're looking for an answer
And you're searching for a clue
And you'll find it in the future
When a better boy breaks through
And you'll wake up in the morning
And you'll dream about your day
And you'll go out in the evening
With no one in your way

Don't know why I don't know why...

Tim Chaplin 2002
Track Name: Disowned
Somebody said
There's a god in heaven
And I'm nearly dead
26 or 7
Go up in a plane
Come down in a doorway
Stuck in my brain
But I'm going your way

Won't you tell me
All your loves and hopes and dreams?
Is the answer
Quite as simple as it seems?
I remember you
With Autumn in your eyes
Ended up
With all your red carnation lies

I liked the way
Your coat came undone
But they took you away
And they left me with no one
You've been disowned
I've been abandoned
You stay at home
I'll pay the ransom

Won't you tell me
All your loves and hopes and dreams?
Is the answer
Quite as simple as it seems?
As the words
Are coming down your telephone
I'm on trial
And they won't leave me alone

Tim Chaplin 2004
Track Name: Sarah Jane's
In these days
When the nights pass slowly
All you've left us
Is lost and lonely
And you know the score
You've been here before
Taking your time
As you tear off the label
Eating your tea
In the chair at the table
But it's not the same
'Cause it's Sarah Jane's

There's no one in the world
Now you're not with me...

Where's the life?
Where's the light, 'cause I can't see?
When I buy back the time
You can tell me
Everywhere you hurt
Everywhere you hurt
Hear my words
They were meant to be spoken
Take my heart
It's supposed to be broken
But it's not the same
'Cause it's Sarah Jane's

Tim Chaplin 2003
Track Name: Flicker And Die
You're always a girl, I'm always a boy
You're just a kid, I'm just a toy
You can spend your Summer long
Wondering where it all went wrong

'Cause I (she) can't wait forever any more
Now nothing's like before
Would you (she) wish it back now if you (she) could?
Just sometimes wish you (she) would

Was that them then, I'm not sure?
He's not with her Mum no more
Bet she's lying in her bed
With all them pretty things she said

Will everything just flicker and die?...

Tim Chaplin 2004
Track Name: Daisy Chain Fridays
Do you dream in black and white?
Do you love enough to fight?

For real in the real world
Or TV, camera, lights
For real if you're real, girl, tonight

Forever in a hole of frozen time
(Daisy chain Fridays)
Only taking back what's mine
(Daisy chain Fridays)
If you held it in your hand
(Daisy chain Fridays)
Out my window, understand
(Daisy chain Fridays)

All there is is feigned concern...
Only get what you deserve

Tim Chaplin 2005
Track Name: Angeline
Take me so far over
My lucky four leaf clover
Drag me so far under
Cracks like rolling thunder

Angeline...

Happy ever after
Hurt me 'cause you hafta
Woman of my dreams
Who breaks like little girls do

Tim Chaplin 2004
Track Name: Baby And The Bright Lights
Jesus, you're a junkie
Baby, you're a broken heart
Crying in the aisles
Praying for a brand new start

'Cause I know something 'bout lovers
I know a thing or two about you
And I know something 'bout lovers
Know a thing or two about you

Seen a million faces
Losing in the same old town
Made 'em into someone
Like everyone I meet - drug-damaged and down

Baby and the bright lights
Standing in a kissing gate
I was only looking
I was only just too late

Tim Chaplin 2005
Track Name: Watercolour Lane
Change your name to someone else today
Won't let you make the same mistakes I made
Whatever you do - just don't turn out like me
So much worse than you could ever see

I'll always look for you somewhere
My little one with daisy hair
Just wanna breathe in time with you
Through all the dreams that don't (won't) come true

Walk with me down Watercolour Lane
Ain't gonna see my face round here again
Just crinkle up your nose into a smile
I'm going back to nowhere for a while

Tim Chaplin 2005
Track Name: Boyfriend Gum
Saw you in my country nights
Saw me in your city lights
They weren't there to let you down
Let me wrap my arms around

Pretty girl
There's crying in your smile
You can't tell me lies
It ain't your style
Pretty girl
Please stay here for a while
You can't tell me lies
You can't tell me lies
It ain't your style

I'm the one to follow you
Boyfriend gum stuck on your shoe
You're the one to rescue me
Just like they sent you to be

Pretty girl
I want your eyes in mine
We can push and pull
Most every time
Pretty girl
I want your skin on mine
We can push and pull
We can push and pull
Most every time

Tim Chaplin 2006
Track Name: The Angel Thieves
Show me slides of Summer
With the seventies kids
Teach me things that I don't understand
Sing me songs of Jesus
Like my Grandmother did
Summer's gone - we've broken up the band

I just wanna live in the town where we did
Just wanna walk where we were
I just wanna live in the house that we did
Before the angel thieves stole her

Sing me songs of Summer
For the seventies kids
Living, loving, losing down the lane
Fridays going shopping
Like my Mum and Dad did
Sharing car park tickets in the rain

Tim Chaplin 2005
Track Name: Broken By The Years
Think I saw your sister
Looks a little different, yeah
Think I mighta missed 'er
Accidentally on purpose, yeah
Musta been a long time
Since I mutsa felt it, now
Coulda been a bad sign
Knew you always felt it, now

But you, don't you cry no tears
Don't be sad just for me
Broken by the years
Don't be sad just for me

Thought you was a lover
So why we always fighting, now?
Never was another
So why we only writing, now?
Waste away the hours
Waste away the years, yeah
Far beyond my power
So far behind the others, yeah

Tim Chaplin 2001
Track Name: Good As Gold
Please don't speak too soon
On this English afternoon
'Cause all the things you mean
Are few and far between

Help me make some sense
Out of this information, please
A girl as good as gold
And now you've got me on my knees
Calling you long distance
Will I ever make it through?
Stand up straight and suffer
Gotta lotta lies, it's true

On the day you nearly died
So numb I never cried
13th and not the first
But the waiting was the worst

Tim Chaplin 2003
Track Name: Flying
Come round here with your suicide bomb
But it's not enough, I know
Are ya just a number now?
Are ya just a number now?
I gave you my everything
But I found it in the trash
Where's my little sister gone?
Where's my little sister gone?

You been crying for a long time now
You been crying for so long
We were flying such a long, long time ago
The way we were - where's it gone?
The way we were - where's it gone?

Come round here with your new shoes on
Said you been in the wars
Who ya gonna fight for now?
Who ya gonna fight for now?
Learnt to use that thing you got
'Til practice wore it out
Where you gonna use it now?
Where you gonna use it now?

Come round here with your so-sad songs
'Cause I'm not enough, I know
Say I ain't no household name
Say I ain't no household name
Trying to catch up with you
A million miles away
So who's gonna catch you now?
So who's gonna catch you now?

Tim Chaplin 2004
Track Name: Silver Rain
When you fall
I wanna catch you, darlin'
And nothing at all
Can finish what we started
Out on the edge
Of falling in love, he said
Out on the edge
Of falling in love, she said

Here we go again
In the silver rain
I can taste the pain
In the silver rain
Here we are again
In the silver rain
I'll take all the blame
In the silver rain

Hold out your hand
For some assistance, maybe?
And I can't stand
The slightest distance, baby
I'm on the edge
Of falling in love, he said
I'm on the edge
Of falling in love, she said

Tim Chaplin 2006
Track Name: Dim Stars
Hold your lover
In your hand
Catch him falling
Like egg time sand

Not trying to change
Not trying to change
Not trying to change your mind...

Five & Dime-style dim stars waiting
Luv ya, darlin'
Better than me
Five & Dime-style dim stars waiting
Luv ya, baby
Better than me

If you're walking
On The Avenue
Hope you're not hurting
Honey, like I do

Tim Chaplin 2007
Track Name: Rock-A-Bye Baby
Rock-a-bye baby, rock...

When my thoughts turn back to you
When the August sky was blue
Always chasing for the new
Never knowing what to do

Halloween and Guy Fawkes' Night
Fireworks and fading light
For a lover, you sure fight
C'mon, try me, I just might

Tim Chaplin 2008
