Can You Feel It? (Lyrics)

Verse One
Woke up this morning singing this song again
Not really sure where it’s coming from
Doesn’t matter cause ill sing it anyway?
But where it will go only god will know
Verse Two
And so this song is for all of you
So listen up ill only sing it once
It’s the music that can bring us to together now
But the hate the drives us all apart
Bridge
But no matter where you are
The music is still the same
Chorus
Can you feel the heat of life running through your veins?
Can you feel the beat of the music as it touches your very soul? x2
Verse Three
So I woke up this morning singing this song again
I wanted to share it with all of you
It’s the music that can bring us to together now
But the hate the drives us all apart
Bridge
Chorus x2
(Can you feel the music, can you feel the music, oh baby can you feel the music,
Running deep inside, can you feel the music baby – wohoha)
Chorus x2

One Fine Day (lyrics)

Chorus
One fine day, today
Just like yesterday
You know, life goes on in the blink of an eye
Verse One
Friends and faces, times and places
Close memories, here we are
Once more just for you

Verse Two
Slowly your journey comes to an end
As your eyes start to fade
As the curtains are open
Letting the light shine onto your heart

God is standing by your side
Open your heart look into his eyes
See all the love of the world in an instant
Its time for your new journey to start
Chorus x3

Sun (Lyrics)

Copyright James Scanlon; www.hyperactiveproductions.com.au; 2009
SUN

Turn the corner, an empty desk
Open the door to another room
Finding for answers that don’t exist
All things gone too soon

Wish it wasn’t so
Simply waiting for another tomorrow
So take me to a far away place
Bless all the others with a similar fate

But for now ill just sit back and try and enjoy the sun
It’s so much easier when I have nowhere left to run

Loose ends untied now
And things incomplete
6 billion people I’ve yet to meet
Together forever in no more pain
To love is to lose and to grieve is our fate

Wish you were here now out in the sun
Sitting enjoying the day
Reflecting on times gone by
And those so very close memories

But for now ill just sit back and try and enjoy the sun
It’s so much easier when I have nowhere left to run

Don’t worry time will heal all wounds my friend
As we sit idly by and watch it all disappear (oh disappear)
Don’t worry
Nothing is forever now
Until all that’s left is the love between you and I

Don’t worry anymore about anything
To do in this life
And you know everything
Has its place in the world

So don’t worry about anything anymore
So don’t worry about anything anymore

Drones/Worker Bees (Lyrics)

worker bee
worked bee
jammed in trains like sardines
deadened stares
like a morgue routine
im a worker bee

stop and breathe
quiet relief
panics taking a hold of me
running late for my date running late
running late

honeycomb traffic jams
caffeine nectar on demand
faster technology
havent slowed the pace

large flatscreen tv’s
no one cares if you have three
only notice its not theirs
who really fucking cares?

CHORUS
worker bee, worker bee
status anxiety
burstout coccoon
butterflies in the room of life
worker bee, worker bee
see the forest for the trees
longer days and shorter nights
work to live and live your life

VERSE 2
non social bee, non social bee
soon to be deafened bee
white cabled umbilical cord
separate you from the hoarde
world of sound, world of sound
block out noise from those around
doesnt matter its too late
youll be deaf , youll be irate

pretty bee pretty bee
sitting there in front of me
train stop missed as i do perve
talk to her if i get up the nerve
she gets off
(at the stop that is)
wondering what did I just miss?
pretty bee pretty bee notice me pretty please

CHORUS

old lady bee old lady bee
struggling with her bags of three
stop to give a helping hand
only love should be givin on demand
smilling bee smikling bee
see the forest for the trees
longer days and shorter nights
but work to live and live your life

OUTTRO
all in all the days go on
inboxes still full when we are gone
another job the great beyond
im still a worker bee
all thats left here and now
smile at me dont share the frowns
here together in all of this
make the best of this crazy gift

nothing else matters
but here and now
smile out loud when in the crouds
every road block who gives a fuck
smell the roses time to stop

CHORUS

Perfect Stranger (Lyrics)

CHORUS

Taking Me Over (Lyrics)

everything i try to say
comes out different in another way
but only when shes around
my heart is beating but makes no sound
makes no sense to me either
wasnt looking wasnt trying to find her
but here i am again once more
feel the energy

as its take me over
her loves taking me over

so everything that i just said
pretty sure it made no sense
but i was lost inside her eyes
captured by her soul took me by surprise
heard her name, my ears screamed out
like the volume to the world turned down
and so here i am again once more
feel the energy

as its take me over
her loves taking me over
as its take me over
her loves taking me over

New Horizons (Lyrics)

Here we are now baby
better than before
Times together ending
New times are on the shore

Everything you wanna say
Is written on your face
So onward new horizons
For me and you everyday

Of new horizons
as far as the eye can see
Of new beginnings
New life standing here for you and me
Of new horizons

massive challenges today 
Keep the world spinning round
Can’t have ups without the downs
gotta get this way then dig urself out
So onward new horizons
For me and you everyday

Of new horizons
as far as the eyes can see
Of new beginnings
New life standing here for you and me
Of new horizons

Feel the new life
Feel the new life
Feel the new life

Romeo (Lyrics)

Oh my juliet
I see you on your balcony under the stars
and though i havent met you yet
i dream about you nightly and all day long

cause im your romeo
and its for you that ive been waiting to find
well get a place with a really large patio
and sit together until we grow old

cause im your romeo, im your romeo, im your romeo,

oh my juliet
i see us walking together under the stars
well be spending time jointly, night and day
and dream about our lives together you and i

cause im your romeo
and its you that ive finally find
well watch our kids play from our patio
and watch the leaves fall as the seasons change

cause im your romeo, im your romeo, im your romeo,

oh my juliet
side by side we rest together under the stars
and while out time is over now
together we can now dream of our eternity

cause im your romeo
but the universe will continue without us, you and I
and our house with the really large patio
will exist for our children to love and grow old

cause im your romeo, im your romeo, im your romeo.

Zero Ground (Lyrics)

i was 22, and she was 18
i though she was hot, she thought i was a geek
i loved her face, she had a great ass
we hooked up on night, we had a blast
only until it came to the sex, she was so hot
that i got a lil scared
a bomb could go off, id not have heard a sound
over my beating chest, ringing all around

my soldier didnt quite, stand up to attention
years of practise, and he stuck his head back in
she was understanding, but the damage was done
i was crying to myself that she should be the one, she should be the one, she should be the one

so lady
ive returned to zero ground
driving me crazy
a new love for you ive found
so lady
a lots changed in years gone by
drivin me crazy
i wanna give it another try

so we caught up together, just the other day
didnt want to jump her in quite the same way
shes still so sexy, her ass cant be ignored
but our conversation, had me mentally hard
feelings of lust and desire to fade
replaced with something new that day
a longing for more, and to just be inside… (pause)
her mind of course, and make her MINE, make her mine, make her mine
CHORUS

i hope this song gets on the radio, cause i havent got the balls to tell her so
and should she hear it hope she isnt too sick
and is forgiving and wants to touch my ….
but i needed to have all these things unsaid, sung for her instead, sung for her instead, sung for her instead

So lady
i love you with with all my heart
your driving me crazy
i want to go back to the start
so lady
a lot has changed in these years ive found
driving me crazy
here i am again at zero ground
Zero Ground
Zero Ground

Chillax Baby (Lyrics)

VERSE1
woo yeah
blood pressure high
the brains sky flying away today
oh its all exactly the same
yeah yeah yeah

coffee ring stains on office desks
feel the beating in my chest
its palpitations again

caffeine induced comas of lust and pain
to turn the day around
its all
cookin my brain

so i say to you

CHORUS
chillax baby
relax baby
its time to unwind
life should be VRRREASY
take it easy
not trying to be sleazy
but thats the way it all rhymes

VERSE2
so sitting in my office cubical
watching the day outside
a tear wells in my eye
yeah yeah yeah

12 years of school, 3 more of uni
if only theyd shown me id only get a 9-5
unsettled and stressed
more meetings more unrest
more same ole same
best parts of me down the drain

here we go again

CHORUS

So day in and day out
not going sit and shout
just gonna sit back
and watch the world go by

watch the world go by

CHORUS
