about

Swimming is a healthy and enjoyable pastime and as well as being a sport is an essential part of living. The object of this recording is to give a non-swimmer the right approach to swimming and show him, or her, how to do the right thing and what to do for the best. Practice will do the rest for those intending to swim and live for pleasure and contentment. Competitive swimming will, of course, need extra therapy.


(plus theres a bonus track if you download whole album)

Track Name: for the attention of
I dont really care about you
Ive just got this itch that needs to be scratched
I dont want a long engagement
I dont think youre serious enough for me

I just know that you are out there
On expeditions Im a plucky mountaineer
Ill just have to suit myself
My imaginations richer than your deeds
At least thats how it seems
Track Name: i always see the sun rise
I dont know what thing it is that makes me want to follow you
Ive just got to find the place that youve been going to

It doesnt matter that you blank me
It doesnt matter that well never meet

I dont know what thing it is that draws me to your side
Its filling gaps where love should be that others have denied

It doesnt matter that you shopped me
it doesnt matter that Ill never see..

The daylight
See the sun rise
I always see the sun rise

Garden walls and garden fences were designed to stop me
But telephoto lenses make it easier to see

What Id give to break this habit
What I wouldnt give that I could..

See the daylight
See the sun rise
I always see the sun rise
Track Name: how to swim & live
I didnt know about the things she did
It was something about how to swim and live
She promised me if I turned up that day
That Id understand life in a different way
So I went because Im nosey

Maybe its need that drew me in
But the offer to save could help me swim
In a virtuous room the word was love
But devotions a thing that Ive given up
But thats only to save time
Track Name: tracy & I
Me & Tracy fell in love, our thoughts collide ,
What we both said outside,Was how we really felt,
The way I spoke, the way she looked, It was ideal,
We both lived in film, And she was Annie Hall.


Watching jumbos cut the sky with vapour trails ,
A reverie that never failed , Oh Trace you couldn't compete,
Tracy said she lost her head for security,That I was her property,
She said she knew there would be false alarms.


Tracy & I,We loved each other, but nothing ever worked right,
Parting after five,A winters evening , the lights lost for..
Tracy & I.


Give me one more chance and let me explain myself,
I know you think I'm someone else ,these days,
The truth about what happened to sweet Tracy and me,
I left her and she left me,We cried about what should have been.


Tracy & I,We loved each other, but nothing ever worked right,
Parting after five,A winters evening , the lights lost for..
Tracy & I
Track Name: orienteering
Leave the house head in to town,
Drop your guard there on the ground,
Just get out.

Catch the bus and stay downstairs,
Keep it in 'til you're there,
Put your head down.

Fix your hair and straighten your clothes,
Catch a glimpse of someone you know,
you're not safe yet.

Orienteering by default.
Taken readings for too long,
Ask no questions to hear no truths.

Refrain:
While you're still young take what you need,
Given chances you'll learn to breathe,
Just open up.

Watching by St Lukes alone,
An ill favoured thing but your own,
With pleading eyes the book shops scanned.

Orienteering your way through,
Waiting for life to start for you,
just go home it wont be today.

Refrain:
While you're still young take what you need,
Given chances you'll learn to breathe,
Just open up.
Track Name: picked out the line
I never meant to so viscously kiss you
I never meant to be so devastating
Somehow its more to do with the secrets you withheld

Than how much you cared
Oh God, I know you cared

Its the whole world now
This is your whole world

Its four in the morning
Im keenly awake
Thoughts about duty so Im sitting up straight

Its the whole world now
This is your whole world

Just waiting
Thats your name is called this time
Oh how youd love
And how you love

Its the whole world now
This is your whole world

Just waiting
For your name to be picked out the line

Oh how youd love
Just waiting
That its your name this time
Still waiting
Still waiting
Track Name: nobody loves you
I always thought that it would be much easier,
To get away with murder,
Than to get through to you.

I thought someday, we'd put our differences aside,
And run away to Ambleside,
Raise chickens by the lake.

Chorus:
Nobody loves you,And it's easy to see why,
Nobody wants you baby,And it's all because of lies,
And your tissue thin disguise, That hides who you really are.

I always thought that it would be high treason,
Certainly castration ,
Getting thrown in the Tower,

But I thought someday they'd put their grievances aside,
And visit us in Ambleside,
Growing Veggies by the lake.

Chorus:
Nobody loves you,And it's easy to see why,
Nobody wants you baby,And it's all because of lies,
And your tissue thin disguise, That hides who you really are.

Don't take this the wrong way,
But I'm sick to the back teeth with you,
Don't take this the wrong way,
But the more that you strained the stronger the bonds became.

Chorus:
Nobody loves you,And it's easy to see why,
Nobody wants you baby,And it's all because of lies,
And your tissue thin disguise, That hides who you really are.

Nobody loves you,And it's easy to see why,
Nobody wants you baby,And it's all because of lies,
The way things are although I'd try,
I'm not sure that I could satisfy,
That's just kindling for neurotic fires,
And natures cruel joke.
Track Name: dreaming is a private thing
Where were you when we changed our lives?
I imagine you holed up, holed up somewhere,
With a bottle in hand.

Where were you when we danced the night?
I imagined you running,Running for your life.

Dont you know it was no surprise,
Cant you see that its warm outside,
Even now that youve changed your life,
You know youll always be in my mind.

I dont know if you noticed me?
I have always said good things and good things come in threes.

Dont you know it was no surprise,
Cant you see that its warm outside,
Even now that youve changed your life,
You know youll always be in my mind.
Track Name: this was your place of birth
Is it too obvious,to say Im unhappy?
Is it so wrong to point out,what that is?

Should I be ashamed to say, to be so blatant?
It's so hard to keep it all inside these days.

This was your place of birth,
Where you were born & raised,
And were you'll stay.

Maybe in a different town, with no accent,
Go to the womens institute, and settle down.
I'll stay in a B&B, and get myself happy,Case of Diazepam and the BBC.

This was your place of birth,
Where you were born and raised
Track Name: sam and molly are in love
"Sam and molly are in love"
is carved into the tree
The truest and purest loves cannot be concealed
She bought the tickets to start anew

A faded room in Morecombe Bay
the British seaside runaways
It didn't matter where they were
Just to be alone

and how we were promised
a beautiful day.


Sam I love you you're my life
your dreams are mine
from crowded streets and shuttered minds
we let those memories die

no natures dull necessity because our love its purity
molly lift your lips to mine
Its in our hands this is our time
oh how I love you
oh how I love you .
Track Name: you tear my love apart
I dont know what it is about us,
Why we like to stay in all of the time,
I know that outside sometimes is frightening,
But thats no reason to stay in all of the time.

Life is beautiful if you let it
why don't you come and join us out in the sun.
I don't like it out there the people are hurtful
my skin burns when I'm strafing hooligans

Chorus:
You tear my love apart
You tear my love apart
and while I'm recovering from a broken heart
You never said console yourselff in my arms

It seem there were classes you where away for
I tried to reach out to you in the best way I knew how
I know and thank you for your reasoning
but nothing that you say could change me now


You tear my love apart
You tear my love apart
and while you're recovering from a broken heart
You never said console yourself in my arms.
