A Tear and a Smile

Come And See The Show (Condell)

Will you come and see the show?
You’re a friend and I’ll tell them so
And you know it helps it all to go
You know, you know it helps it all to go.

Will you help me to carry the drum?
It’s my reason to make you come
And you know the songs I sing for you
They’re done, they’re done
And they’re shared with everyone.

Never mind your homework
Never mind your homebird
Never mind your horrifying horoscope
Won’t you come and see the show?
Won’t you come and let me know?
Won’t you come and see the show?
Won’t you come and see the, come and see the,
come and see the show?

There’s a stage in the lady’s eye
And a scene with a pale blue sky
And the dancer takes her, throws her higher, higher
In the opera she dies
And behind the maestro’s door
Comes ‘good luck’ he says, ‘five minutes more’
And the stagehand knows he’s seen the show
Before, you know he’s seen it all before.

Never mind your homework
Never mind your homebird
Never mind your horrifying horoscope
Won’t you come and see the show?
Won’t you come and let me know?
Won’t you come and see the show?
Won’t you come and see the, come and see the,
come and see the show?
Won’t you come and see the show?
Won’t you come and let me know?
Won’t you come and see the show?
Won’t you come and see the, come and see the,
come and see the show?
 

So Freely (O’Kelly)

You gave your love so freely
Made me wonder was it real
But then I was just the same with mine
And I know the way I feel
Know the way I feel, you know
When strangers meet like we did
It can leave you feeling sad
But that’s not the way it left us
No, love is not like that
Love is not like that you know.

And I could live so long on your memory alone
Yes I could live so long on your memory alone.

You write and say you miss me
Well you know I miss you too
But it may be such a long time
Before I’ll be seeing you
I’ll be seeing you my love
Tell me you believe in me
And I’ll believe in you
Oh I see that’s all wrong
But you can show me what to do
Teach me how to love you

 And I could live so long on your memory alone
Yes I could live so long on your memory alone.
 

Hemisphere (Condell)

The lady was born of a sunbeam
Out across the silver sand she moves
‘Come to me now’, my love whispers
For her eyes are seas to sail to her.

In what hemisphere do you sail today?

'Come write me a song,' said the lady
For she sang like all the birds at dawn
I slept by her side with the pale moon
For her breath might be a black sea sail

In what hemisphere do you sail today?

Lady Ocean (O’Kelly)

I’m waiting for you to come into my darkness
I’m waiting for you to open up my heart
I know that you’re bright enough
To stay inside my darkness
I know you can try enough to open up my heart

And it’s such a pain, oh it’s such a pain
Oh it’s such a pain

Oh Lady Ocean flow across this continent
Oh Lady Ocean I’m straining for your sea
The mountains are growing, deserts are unfolding
Oh Lady Ocean it seems like endless sleep

And it’s such a pain, oh it’s such a pain
Oh it’s such a pain

Oh Lady Ocean flow across this continent
Oh Lady Ocean I’m straining for your sea
The mountains are growing, deserts are unfolding
Oh Lady Ocean it seems like endless sleep

And it’s such a pain, oh it’s such a pain
Oh it’s such a pain

I’m waiting for you to come into my darkness
I’m waiting for you to open up my heart
I know that you’re bright enough
To stay inside my darkness
I know you can try enough to open up my heart

And it’s such a pain, oh it’s such a pain
Oh it’s such a pain

The Same Thing Happening (O'Kelly) 

I feel the same thing happening
The way it’s done before
I feel the same thing happening
The waiter even knows what you’re gonna order
What you’re gonna eat.

I’ve been all day in the city
Just walking up and down
Been sitting at a film
Around the places we used to go
Just hoping that you might be there

Oh you can build a cage of freedom
And never see the bars
Yeah, you can build a trap of love
And never know who you are
Change is no use to anyone
If it’s only changing all around
Go where you want to, but you know
You’ll be coming back
To find what you haven’t found.

Oh. I’m sitting at a wild, wild, party, I’m on
The music’s playing ‘n’ swaying
Oh I never need to go home.

I feel the same thing happening
The way it’s done before
I feel the same thing happening
The waiter even knows what you’re gonna order
What you’re gonna eat.

Oh I have let loose my arrows
And watched them as they fall
And when I pick the targets up
I've scored high with them all
The targets all have fallen now
Except one circle in the sky
And I'm gonna reach and pierce it if I try

Goodbye My Love (O'Kelly)

Your dream prince has spoken
He’s broken a fondly woven wreath
Your sleepy lion has woken
And oh he’s fallen deeper into sleep.

And your eyes are the eyes of a woman
With too much love
But your tears are the tears of a warm girl
Not loved enough

Goodbye my love, goodbye
Goodbye my love, goodbye
Goodbye my love, goodbye

Your heat cannot melt the ice
That’s grown around his eyes
Your tears cannot appease the angel
Whose black wings beat the skies
And you can but pray that the malady will go
For your jewel tears that fall
Can feel no more

Goodbye my love, goodbye
Goodbye my love, goodbye
Goodbye my love, goodbye
 

 Bluebottle Stew (Condell)

Well I went down town just a lonesome clown
And I found I was walking with you
You were drinking raspberry wine and wishing all the time
That it was bluebottle stew

You had your papa on a lead, beggin’ to be freed
But you were so unkind
You beat him with a stick and told him to be quick
Or he’d be surely left behind.

Well you must agree, that I’ve got the key
And you haven’t a clue where to find it.

Well after a while I began to smile
But you were not amused
You climbed on a bus in a dreadful fuss
Ashamed of the language I used.
You put your papa on a rack in a dirty old sack
And turned to blow me a kiss
But luck was on my side or I would have died
But it was a very near miss

Well you must agree, that I’ve got the key
And you haven’t a clue where to find it.

Well you and your papa and your raspberry wine
I think about you most of the time
Sitting by the fire, wondering how you are
Trying to get the song to rhyme.

Well I went down town just a lonesome clown
And I found I was walking with you
You were drinking raspberry wine and wishing all the time
That it was bluebottle stew

Well you must agree, that I’ve got the key
And you haven’t a clue where to find it - on me.

Two White Horses (Condell)

Two white horses draw the plough
From where I stand I hear no sound
The hours of this creeping day
In polished harness led away
Ploughman’s feet in furrows
Walking, walking.

The years have bent this ploughman’s back
As wind deforms the skyline tree
Two white horses never tire
In all the turnings of the day
Turning, always turning
In this never-ending field.

Two white horses draw the plough
From where I stand I hear no sound
Two white horses never tire
In all the turnings of the day
Walking, always walking
In this never-ending field.
