CRAIG WOODWARD & THE LONELY DOGS ALBUM LYRICS

1. YOU COULDN’T TELL ME

1. YOU COULDN’T TELL ME

Music and Lyrics by Craig Woodward © 2011

I was being so cool in an old school kind of way
Chasing dreams getting further from happy
Getting off on telling lies, was you I compromised

You couldn’t tell me
I had to find it on my own
No-one could tell me
All the bad seeds I’ve sewn

Getting drunk on love and misery
The apple never falls far from the tree
In the firing line, was you I shot tonight

But you couldn’t tell me
I had to find in on my own
No-one could tell me
All the bad seeds I’ve sewn
What I thought was right
Revealed my ugly side
But you couldn’t tell me
No you couldn’t tell me

Feeling green in a school boy kind of way
Walking a path I’ve covered already
To face my fear, could mean you’ll disappear

But you couldn’t tell me
I had to find in on my own
No-one could tell me

All the bad seeds I’ve sewn
What I thought was right
Revealed my ugly side
But you couldn’t tell me
No you couldn’t tell me
No you couldn’t tell me
No you couldn’t tell me
I had to find it on my own
No you couldn’t tell me

2. BONDI SMILE

2. BONDI SMILE

Music and Lyrics by Craig Woodward © 2011

She had a Bondi smile a Qld tan
Painted lips like strawberry jam
She’s was cooking, but I wasn’t looking
No sir re’’’

You see I promised my girl that I was faithful
No-one in the world could replace her
She’s all that I need
But you gotta understand when it comes to men
Sometimes their eyes go wondering
You know what I mean

So listen up fella’s this one’s for you
Take advice from a self made fool
Count to ten, if you’re still starin’
She’s probably onto you

She had a Bondi smile a Qld tan
Painted lips like strawberry jam
She was cooking, but I wasn’t looking
A rainbow swimsuit, beach blonde hair
Legs that crossed the riviere oh man
But I wasn’t looking

You see I love my girl I love my life
Someday I’ll make her my wife
Start me a little family tree
But you’ve gotta understand when it comes to men
Sometimes their eyes go wandering
It happens automatically

So listen up fella’s this one’s for you
Take advice from a self-made fool
You count to ten, you’re still starin’
She’s probably onto you

She had a Bondi smile a Qld tan
Painted lips like strawberry jam
She was cooking, but I wasn’t looking
A rainbow swimsuit, beach blonde hair
Legs that crossed the riviere oh man
But I wasn’t looking

She had a Bondi smile
A Qld tan oh man
She had a Bondi Smile
And a Qld tan oh man
Oh man, but I wasn’t looking
Ha-ha-ha-ha-hah

3. I WANNA KISS YOU

3. I WANNA KISS YOU

Music and Lyrics by Craig Woodward © 2011

This is one small step for boy
One giant leap for man
I was starring at you across the room
But did you understand
I was falling in love long distance
Before we even spoke
Please tell me this time it’s real
Not some, twisted joke

I wanna kiss you
I wanna look into your eyes
Forever be with you
Till where on the otherside
Win you with my charm
Till you’re lying in these arms
I wanna kiss you, oh yes I do
I wanna kiss you

Well I’ve had my share of honest girls
And crazy ones
But it’s a lonely life that numbers game
When you’ve had enough
Now that I’ve got you in my sights
I hope you never realized
I’m already thinking bout a big white wedding
And a quiet country life

I wanna kiss you,
I wanna look into your eyes
Forever be with you
Till we’re on the other side
Win you with my charm
Till you’re lying in these arms
I wanna kiss you, oh yes I do
I wanna kiss you, alright

I wanna kiss you
I wanna look into your eyes
Forever be with you
Till we’re on the other side
Win you with my charm
Till you’re lying in these arms
I wanna kiss you, oh yes I do

I wanna kiss you
I wanna look into your eyes
Forever be with you
Till where growin’ old outside
Win you with my charm
Till you’re lying in these arms
I wanna kiss you, oh yes I do

I wanna kiss you, oh yes I do
I wanna kiss you, oh yes I do-oo-oo
I wanna kiss you

4. CHASING STRANGERS

4. CHASING STRANGERS

Whatever happened to intuition?
Ain’t that stuff meant to keep you safe?
I think I’ve found the gene I’m missing
Deoxirybon happy and content

It started to slide, now I’m slipping
Another potential gone to waste
This is the part that I’ve been dreading
A silent goodbye in a text message

When it’s over, before it begins
When you swear but words
Don’t mean a thing
When it’s over, before it begins
You could be wasting time
Chasing strangers

What ever happened to good intentions?
This love is nothing like I thought
I’m still running round in circles
With my aching heart on a chopping block
Do I have to tell, do I have to tell
Do I have to tell?

Whatever happened to preservation?
I think it went with my common sense
Must be a thousand ways to break up
But it’s no good lying to yourself
When it’s over, before it begins
When you swear but words
Don’t mean a thing
When it’s over, before it begins
You could be wasting time Chasing strangers
When it’s over, before it begins
When you swear but words don’t
They don’t mean a thing
When it’s over, before it begins
You could be wasting time
Chasing strangers for the rest of your life
Oh oh ohh for the rest of your life
Oh oh ohh for the rest of your life
Oh oh ohh for the rest of your life

5. SAVE MY LIFE – (H is for happy)

5. SAVE MY LIFE – (H is for happy)

Music and Lyrics by Craig Woodward © 2011

How could, have I, ever let you underneath my skin
Usually care free, no-body ever got to me
But this time something has changed
I felt my heart, beat out your name

Now I feel no fear, when she’s standing near
She keeps my demons quiet
One look from you, and I fell in love
Did you come to save my life?

Damage, control, blonde-bombshell messing up my world
Careful, be gentle, 17’s so young
All my life, I’ve waited for her
You say it’s wrong, but what would know

Now I feel no fear, when she’s standing near
She keeps my demons quiet
One look from her, and I fell over
Did you come to save my life?

Ooohhh Ooohhh Oohhh

All my life, I’ve waited for her
You say it’s wrong, but what would you know

Cause I feel no fear, when she’s standing near
She keep’s my demons quiet
One look from her, and I fell in love
Did you come to save my life?

6. NEVER BE THE SAME

6. NEVER BE THE SAME

Music and Lyrics by Craig Woodward © 2011

Keep on praying for rain
Tell those tears to come back another day
Count your blessings one by one
This is where we belong

You will never be the same
When I’m through with you girl
You’ll never be the same

Give me all that makes you real
Go on take full advantage of me
Breathe it in and swallow it
This is were we begin

You will never be the same
When I’m through with you girl
You’ll never be the same
When you’re fears and doubts are dragging you down
Just relax, don’t despair
I’ll be around, I will be around

Keep on looking for the sun
She may hide, but she will never run
We will grow and we will change
Only one thing remains

You will never be the same
When I’m through with you girl
You’ll never be the same
When you’re fears and doubts are dragging you down
Just relax, don’t despair
I’ll be around, I will be around

Keep on praying for rain
Tell those tears to come back another day
We will grow and we will change
Only one thing remains
You will never be the same
When I’m through with you girl
You’ll never be the same
You will never be the same
When I’m through with you girl
You’ll never be the same
Never be the same
You’ll never be the same
You always change

7. BREEZE

7. BREEZE

This ain’t no movie, no fictional fairy tail
It is life, it is real
You just can’t fake this, you got to chase it
Fight for it every step of the way

You’re breeze, cools me
When I’m seconds out from loosing my head
But it’s your love that keeps me here

I’ll be walking, roads unchartered
In continents, I’ve never been
When I’m craving, familiar faces
That’s when you’ll find me down by the sea

You’re breeze, cools me
When I’m seconds out from loosing control
But it’s your love that brings me home

Brings me home, where ever I roam
Through the darkest days and nights I know
Helps makes sense of the madness
In a world gone backwards
A bright light to guide me home

I’ve been feeling, so much lacking
Day by day it eats me away
Got me wondering, what I’m missing
Has been standing all this time, in front of me

Your breeze, cools me
When I’m seconds out from losing control
But it’s your love that brings me home

Brings me home, where ever I roam
Through the darkest days and nights I know
Helps makes sense of the madness
In a world gone backwards

A bright light to guide me home, where ever I roam
Through the darkest days and nights I know
Helps makes sense of the madness
In a world gone backwards

A bright light to guide me home
A bright light to guide me home

8. CONFESSION

8. CONFESSION

Music and Lyrics by Craig Woodward © 2011

This is my confession to you
The only way I know how to
The only thing I’m left to do
The rest is up to you

How was I supposed to know, I was just a scared little boy
When I broke you heart in pieces, like your favourite toy
I didn’t know the damage done would bring so many tears
I’m gonna pay for years

Out of all my regrets you top my list
Why I let you slip away, you did not resist
But who am I to talk, cause I broke your little heart
For the faith in my rock and roll

So… This is my confession to you
The only way I know how to
The only thing, the only thing I’m left to do
The rest is up to you, the rest is up to you

Still it makes no sense at all
True love, still we fall
And we can’t get back
To the place where we used to love

This must make you furious
Impeccable timing is what I possess
Was a long dark room, where we used to love
Take me down to waters edge, finish me off once and for all

This is my confession to you
The only way I know how to
The only thing, the only thing I’m left to do
The rest is up to you, the rest is up to you

Oh-ho…This is my confession to you
The only way I know how to
The only thing, the only thing I’m left to do
The rest is up to you, the rest is up to you

Oh-ho yeah, Oh, yeah Get me out of here
Oh, yeah, I need space to breathe
Oh, yeah, get me out of here, get me out of here
Ohohohohoh yeah This is my confession….woh yeah-eah

This is my confession, my one and only confession
This is my confession to you….woh-ho yeah

9. OPEN MY EYES

9. OPEN MY EYES

Music and Lyrics by Craig Woodward © 2011

When you talk about hope, inner peace & harmony
Well that’s a place I could not get to
Couldn’t break that spell, every corner I turned round
Lead to a break down in my state of mind
I was defeated, overwhelmed, tossed aside
Till you broke its back and pulled me out alive

When I couldn’t see clear
You made me believe yeah
Told me to open my eyes
Open my open my eyes

When you talk about love, I didn’t understand
If everything’s so great, why do I feel so bad?
Get me out of my head
Take me anywhere but that place
Cause its depression dragging me down
And it’s never a road you choose to walk alone
Can you reassure me, I’m not the only one?

Get me back to a place I know I’m missing
Beneath the feelings I have harboured for to long

I couldn’t wait another day, I finally see the way
You made me push through black sky and the grey clouds rolling in
When you feel like I did before
Oh no, no, no, you made me see, made me believe
You made me open my eyes

When I couldn’t see clear
You made me believe yeah
Told me to open my eyes
Open my open my eyes
When I couldn’t see clear
You told me believe yeah
Told me to open my eyes
Open my open my eyes
Told me to open my eyes
Open my open my eyes

10. BLACK ANGEL

10. BLACK ANGEL

Music and Lyrics by Craig Woodward © 2011

You’re living with fear
The letters don’t mean much
Their contents are blurred
Now you’ve facing the storm in the cup

A future in doubt
This one looks like taking him out
He’ll cut of the air, fall from the chair
Leaving the rest to ask why?

When will you feel, the same
When will you feel, how I do today
When will you leave darkness alone?
And embrace the colour of love
You say you‘ve been hurting to long, with no where to run

He never look’s back
Seems headstrong to live in the past
To love or to loose, how can one choose?
With no way to turn the clock back

He fills in the void
But desire’s no longer his choice
And he don’t believe, cause he doesn’t see
Anything good in his life

When will you feel, the same
When will you feel, how I do today
When will you leave darkness alone?
And embrace the colour of love
You say you‘ve been hurting to long, with no where to run

So what if I stumble, what if I stall
Who will be there, to catch when I fall?
When I need an answer, in spite of my prayers
Take care of his body, cause the soul is not there
I fantasize night could turn into day
Where we could both stand in arms, length away

I’d realign the stars, turn planets into dust
Put oxygen on mars, if you’d could just give him up
And send that black angel, the one that I love
Back down to earth, cause it’s where he belongs

I’m begging with you now, I’m begging with you now
I’m begging with you now, I’m begging with you now
When will you feel, the same?
When will you feel, how I do today?
When will you leave darkness alone?
And embrace the colour of love
You say you‘ve been hurting too long, with nowhere to run Nowhere…….nowhere to run……nowhere…..ohohohoh-oh-oh
ohohohoh-oh-oh…..ohohohoh-oh-oh….ohohohoh-oh-oh

Nowhere…..nowhere to run…..nowhere…

11. LANDSLIDE

11. LANDSLIDE

Music and Lyrics by Craig Woodward © 2011

Knocking on the door of loneliness
I’m not sure where to begin
Cause my soul, is drenched in pain
And I’m sinking with it

In the morning I feel sadness
Wipe away my lonely tears
I’m just crying for attention I need
But I don’t want no-one near

I’ve been caught in a landslide
One that’s sinking within
I’m just waiting for the rest of my life
To hurry up and begin

Do I face this on my own?
Or will you come rescue me
Should I stay, or say goodbye
Bring this love to an end

I’ve been caught in a landslide
One that’s sinking within
I’m just waiting for the rest of my life
To hurry up and begin
I don’t mean no harm
I don’t mean no harm
I just wanna feel alive

I’ve been caught in a landslide
One that’s sinking within
I’m just waiting for the rest of my life
To hurry up and begin

I’ve been caught in a landslide
One that’s sinking within
I’m just waiting for the rest of my life
To hurry up and begin
Hurry up and begin
Hurry up and begin
