The Truth 04:39
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

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

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

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

Disowned 03:19
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
7.
Sarah Jane's 02:27
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

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
9.
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

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
12.
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
13.
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

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

Good As Gold 03:05
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

Flying 05:43
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

Silver Rain 03:30
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

Dim Stars 05:12
