Track Name: To A Apple
Apple in my cheeks and apple in my hand
Apple on the tree and apple on the ground
Swinging on a limb I am ten years old
Thinking on the apples and the apples I knowed
Where do all the swallows and your holiday go?
How d'you get to grown-up when you don't want to know?
Short and sweet and a barrel unfair
Apple is a apple and a apple don't care

Apple we'll shake and the apple well shook
Apple come down with the apple-knocking wood
Times have changed I got business, man
Apples in my wallet and apples in the van
Where do all the swallows and your holiday go?
How d'you get to grown-up when you don't want to know?
Time might tell, is it going alright?
Oh, apple good morning and apple good night
Track Name: Lonely Joan
In all her misery she finds salvation
In every shallow vice there lies redemption
I wish I knew you like I want to
Are you alright or is there something you must hide?

I wonder
Lonely Joan

I know you had a husband once - you wear a ring, ring-a-ding
They say he dicked with your heart like he made it beat fast when he was with you
I know I could never be your friend, for though
You never had many, now you haven't any

Way to lose you
Lonely Joan

Oh my days
Have you been crying?
You shake your fist
But there's no denying…

It's lonely
Joan

And if you knew that I thought of you
You would be angry and treat me badly
Because it's dangerous to place your trust
In anyone - you always ask too much

People ain't good enough
Lonely Joan
Track Name: On Your Bike
On your bike, 'round the world
With your guitar and your girl
Taking pictures, moving fast
Times like these ain't gonna last

South-West-sider, kinky rider on a roll
Where you going? Am I coming? Tell me "No."

Kilometres out of time
Oh your tyres are doing fine
English Channel see you later
You the navigator

Check your wallet have you got it? What d'you say?
"Must have left it on the ferry." Belle Calais

Get up early, go to sleep
Conversations take a week
Hi to your baby - kiss her quick
May you lovers never quit

Now you remember how you were a refugee
How you feeling now the world has set you free?

Snow-blind, saddle-sore
Is this what you're looking for?
Salmonella, certain death
Still you get up and you're dressed

In the way a Himalaya cut from stone
Even if you wanted to go home

Jen said she saw you last
Flakey fire in your moustache
Acting crazy, talking weird
Something 'bout a Big Idea

Said you held on to the bike
As you rode into the light (said you)
Said your body made you slow
And that you just had to…

Go

Jethro
Track Name: Motherland
They mixed bloody waters
Got sons and daughters
Motherland
Motherland
Raised 'em tall and broad
Spun its own reward
Father son
Daughter mum
Dig our grand family tree
There's you there's me
A long list
Come to this
Hungry little cryer
Little house on fire
What d'you do?
I love you

You know me I just wait and see
If everything don't work out fine
And I got you no matter what I do
I got you, I got you on my mind

Word on the wire says
I'm a big white liar
More like black and blue
You know I try for you

And oh what time of night
Tell me it's alright
Motherland
Motherland
Yes you’re tiny meek
With that savage streak
What d'you do?
I love you

You know me I just wait and see
If everything don't work out fine
And I got you no matter what I do
I got you, I got you on my mind
Track Name: Saul
With the moon up in the trees
I looked and I was pleased
And the spirit of Tall Saul was in the canyon
Be they rattling bones
Or just shifting stones
I was bound to recognise my old companion

Moon hid behind a cloud
And I laughed out loud
I says "Saul he rides again, come back to haunt me
Heard you was dead…"
And voice in my head
Says "You ain't heard the ending of the story."

He says "What you got?"
And I says "What d'you need?
Feel like a little drink and company?”
Well we sat down and he
Showed me his wounds - sore even
By the light of that gentle moon

Well we drunk ’til we were filled
And he told how he was killed
And he told me 'bout the ending of the story
How he was badly betrayed
And how the trap was laid
And how he burned out in a blaze of good old glory

"Never mattered anyway,”
So he say
"Don't make no bones, don't make no reason to remember.
Now, you don't mind the time
Ain't no straight line
And you know where you are soon as you get there."

I says "Tell me secrets!”
And he says "Look alive
It's all there is and it's all right."
I says "Where you going?"
But he just stepped out of sight
With the bottle empty and the moonshine bright
Track Name: Hello My Lover
Hello my lover
In the morning where you're sleeping
And you don't know that I get up
And I'm looking out the window
At the good world and what's going on
In your garden with the sparrows and the crows
They love it

Hello my lover
In the drawn-out matinee where I had to go
To sleep on your shoulder
And dream that the film was good
If hard to follow with your eyes closed
And their far out foreign language
You love it

Hello my lover
In the evening somewhere London
Something lost - like we care
Because we know that home is where
The heart is - and we're not really lost
Just cold and hungry
I love it

Hello hello hello hello hello hello hello my lover

Hello hello hello hello hello hello alright my lover
