ALL TO MYSELF - single

ALL TO MYSELF
MUSIC & LYRICS - D. WRIGHT
   
She moves like she talks.
Not one to forget.
She knows just what she wants.
But tastes of regret.

Her eyes innocent & wild,
She makes me believe,
That i’m the only one,
And she’ll never leave.

Ooh I want you all to myself,
And I need ya and nobody else.
Ooh I want you all to myself,
And I need ya and nobody else

She's calculated.
She got it all figured out.
She knows what she has to do,
To cause you some doubt.

Oh she got a lot of pretty boys,
That she calls her friends.
Oh she's dancing in the rain,
And they know she pretends.

Chorus

She said you always want what you, what you can't have.
Yeah you always want what you, what you can't have.

Chorus

THE LONG WAY HOME EP

FOR  YOU
MUSIC & LYRICS - D. WRIGHT
   
Two foot from the ground not so tall,
So much running around don’t know what’s going on,
So much love and spirit in my heart,
You’re the first girl I laid my eyes on.
 
And there’s something down,
Deep within my soul,
I cant seem to take control
Of this urge when I’m with you cos you’re beautiful.
 
Guess I thought if I wrote you a song you’d be mine,
And you’d end your chase with them other guys,
Well ill sit here and wait for my dreams to come true
Cos I know there’s only one girl and that girl is you
 
Well there’s something down,
Deep within my soul,
I cant seem to take control
Of this urge when I’m with you cos you’re beautiful.
 
And I can go on for miles trying to find someone like you,
Wrapped up in your smile doing the things that you do.
And I can go on for miles trying to find someone like you,
Wrapped up in your smile doing the things that you do.
 
Guess I thought if I wrote you a song you’d be mine.
    
 

OCEAN EYES
MUSIC & LYRICS - D. WRIGHT/A.BROWN

Lost my heart on the west coast,
To a girl I hardly know,
She had hair of gold.
Had eyes blue as the water,
Stopped and stared when I saw her there,
In the Autumn air.

And I know I can’t disguise these feelings deep inside,
And I’d go back every time,
Back to her ocean eyes.

Two ghosts who met in the moonlight,
Lovers under a starry sky,
It just felt so right.
Young souls who burn with an old heart,
Blue flame lit from a cold spark,
Ignite my dark.

And I know I can’t disguise these feelings deep inside,
And I’d go back every time,
Back to her ocean eyes.

Oh we’re dancing, dancing under the moonlight,
And her lips were sweet with the taste of her red wine.
Now I find that I cant wait to fall asleep
Its there I find her dancing in my dreams.

And I know I can’t disguise these feelings deep inside,
And I’d go back every time,
Back to her ocean eyes,
To those ocean eyes,
A girl with ocean eyes.
 
 
 
  GONE TO RIO  
MUSIC & LYRICS - D.WRIGHT
 
My baby packed her bags
Told me she was gonna leave
I said, “What? Why, where you going?
She said, “I gotta go where I gotta be”
She’s gone to Rio
Oh my baby’s in Rio
Hey she’s gone to Rio
Oh she’s in Rio
 
We slept it off then off she went
She left a note on the kitchen bench
Red lipstick in the shape of her lips
On my cheek and on my hips
 
She’s in Rio
Oh my baby’s in Rio
Oh she’s gone to Rio
My my baby’s in Rio
 
Flashing lights and beating drum
All them people tryna dance around
She rises her short skirt
All them fellas tryna get what they don’t deserve
My baby’s in Rio
Hey she’s gone to Rio
My my baby’s in Rio de Janeiro
 
My baby’s hot and sweaty
Stinking of cigarettes
Strolling down those city streets
Sharing her love with every man
Well she’s in Rio
My baby’s in Rio
Hey she’s gone to Rio
My my baby’s in Rio de janero
 
Flashing lights and beating drum
All them people tryna dance around
She rises her short skirt
All them fellas tryna get what they don’t deserve
My baby’s in Rio
Hey she’s gone to Rio
My my baby’s in Rio
    
 
 
ISOBEL
   MUSIC & LYRICS - D.WRIGHT
 
Met a young lady at the bottom of a bottle
Said her name was Isobel and I told her my own
Said “where you been darling?” she said, “living outta suitcase
Walking barefoot on the long way home” she goes
 
Hair full of daises eyes filled with wonder
The said the life we’re living in is just a game
Sat by the campfire and told me her story
We laughed, we cried until the morning came
 
And all was well,
All was fine,
All was well with Isobel,
Drinking the wine.
 
Well her daddy left her when she was five,
And her mama didn’t want to stick around and be alive,
Well Isobel ran, Isobel escaped
Into the lords arms she was saved.
 
Every night before bed Isobel would pray
Ask to be a bird and to fly away,
She didn’t grow wings but her spirit grew strong,
She picked up her things and started walking along.
 
And all was well,
All was fine,
All was well with Isobel,
Drinking the wine.
 
Me and Isobel gonna walk in the sunset,
Barefoot on the long way home.
Me and Isobel gonna walk in the sunset,
Barefoot on the long and winding road.
    
 
 
RESCUE
MUSIC & LYRICS - D.WRIGHT
   
I’ve been searching far and wide,
For someone to rescue me,
And stand by my side,
I’ve seen it in movies,
Written in books,
That love is all I asked for,
That love is all it took.
 
And her breathtaking beauty,
Paints a smile on my face.
She lifts me up from nothing,
Just her amazing grace.
And I only want to wake up with you sleeping next to me,
Cos every other morning doesn’t really matter
I only want to wake up with you sleeping next to me,
Cos every other morning doesn’t really matter.
 
She’s written down in poetry,
She’s painted on walls.
She’s the hope in our hearts,
The light in us all.
She’s the one that I look for,
When I go to sleep.
She never let me get too far,
Or let me in too deep.
 
And her breathtaking beauty,
Paints a smile on my face.
She lifts me up from nothing,
Just her amazing grace.
And I only want to wake up with you sleeping next to me,
Cos every other morning doesn’t really matter
I only want to wake up with you sleeping next to me,
Cos every other morning doesn’t really matter.
 
And her breathtaking beauty,
Paints a smile on my face.
She lifts me up from nothing,
Just her amazing grace.
And I only want to wake up with you sleeping next to me,
Cos every other morning doesn’t really matter
I only want to wake up with you sleeping next to me,
Cos every other morning doesn’t really matter.
I only want to wake up with you sleeping next to me,
Cos every other morning doesn’t really matter.
    
HOLD ON
MUSIC MØME  & LYRICS - D. WRIGHT

Hush,
I feel you touch against my lips.
Brush,
I feel the moment as it slips.
Go with the sound thats in your soul.
Just let the music take control.

Not,
Oh wonder have lost their hearts.
Life,
Is something we must pick apart,
Go with the sound thats in your soul,
Just let the music take control.



THROUGH YOUR EYES
(co-written with A. Grant & YesYou)

All we have is this moment,
Of some twisted perfection.
An idea that two,
Can make something of you,
Through ties of affection.

Well I can see it in your eyes,
Your souls a fire,
Its burning bright like the mid night sun.
A blurring of the truths which you desire,
Flicking off your poison tongue.

I’ll never be what you want what you see,
Through your eyes.
I’ve always been one to look one to see,
Through your lies.
Well I aint got nothing,
Aint got nothing holding me down,
Holding me down,
No I aint got nothing,
Aint got nothing holding me down,
No, holding me down.

I Think I'll survive,
This road alone.
Tomorrows a brand new day,
I'll be happier on my own.

WellI can see it in your eyes,
Your souls a fire.
Its burning bright like the mid night sun,
A blurring of the truths which you desire,
Flicking off your poison tongue.

I’ll never be what you want what you see,
Through your eyes.
I’ve always been one to look one to see,
Through your lies.
Well I aint got nothing,
Aint got nothing holding me down,
Holding me down,
No I aint got nothing,
Aint got nothing holding me down,
No, holding me down.


ANCHOR
(co-written with A. Grant)

Turn down the lights,
Let the city rest,
Bare bodies in the night,
Her head against my chest.

The colour in her eyes,
Softness of her skin,
No words need be spoke,
And that’s what drew me in.

Follow me down,
The empty road,
That is dimly lit,
By our fading hope.

She had all of me.
She had all of me.
I’ve got that feeling,
That anchors me down.
That loving feeling,
Anchors me down.

I’ve got that feeling,
That anchors me down.
That loving feeling,
Anchors me down.

Red, red wine,
Flowing through our veins.
We drink in this moment,
And hope it remains.
We’re children of the night,
With the idea that love,
Could heal our brokenness,
And save us from above.

Follow me down,
The empty road,
That is dimly lit,
By our fading hope.

Chorus x 2


TRICK OF THE LIGHT
(co-written with Andrew Grant)

I've got no place to be
Nothing to call my home
No sense of urgency
Reminiscent in my tone
I've been played a fool
But a good thief will hide what they do
I’ve been careless
But I just don't mind
I just don't mind
But they do

I caught you staring back at me
You said it was a trick of the light
I caught you staring back at me

She moves like a daydream
But is dressed without any care
Life ain't what it seems
She's living in her own nightmare
Got poison in her veins
She is driven by desire
And so the question remains
Why I believe you the liar

I just don't mind
I just don't mind
But they do

I caught you staring back at me
You said it was a trick of the light
I caught you staring back at me
You said it was a trick of the light
I caught you staring back at me
You said it was a trick of the light
I caught you staring back at me
