Track Name: Winter in London
Winter in London

Words and music © Tim Hudspith, March 2008


I wake in the morning to the sound of the rain
Winter in London is always the same
The fog and the mist the cold and the grey
My visas expired I’m leaving today

Goodbye to the Thames, the Palace and Tate
Goodbye to the Tower and to the Gate
Sydney is calling I’m catching a plane
My money is spent and I’ve overstayed

24 months in London UK
I’ve sold my guitar so I can escape
I wake in the morning to the sound of the rain
Winter in London is always the same

I’m catching a plane
I’m catching a plane
I’m catching a plane
Track Name: Little Things
Little Things

Words © Tim Hudspith, February 2008
Music © Adam Seery, February 2008


I kept all the photographs
Of our moments in the past

I need the telephone to ring
I miss the little things

I kept your letters and your cards
And blood red roses in a vase

I need the telephone to ring
I miss the little things
Track Name: East of Eden
East of Eden

Words and music © Tim Hudspith, August 2007


Should I measure my success
By my sense of emptiness
Or the benefits and costs
Of the moments I have lost

Should I try and hold the line
Or relent and compromise
Should I let it all just slide
Or be like Lazarus and rise

Now I see
My missed opportunities
Help me please
I don’t want to be
East of Eden

One moment I feel strong
With the next I am undone
I touch redemption then it’s gone
My absolution takes too long

Now I see
My missed opportunities
Help me please
I don’t want to be
East of Eden

Now I see
My missed opportunities
Help me please
I don’t want to be
East of Eden

You could have been a movie star
Driving limousines down boulevards
You could have been in magazines
With your face upon the silver screen

But circumstances were unjust
And you were never blessed by lady luck
But there is still another way
For you to be a household name

Get your gun and get your Chevrolet
You anonymity will end today
When you’re cruising down the boulevard
Killing people like a movie star

Track Name: Ghost Town
Ghost Town

Words and music © Tim Hudspith, April 2005


So many times I’ve wanted to leave you
So many times I’ve walked to the door
Only to turn at the very last moment
To beg your forgiveness for all I have done

Our walls have all crumbled
Our bridges have burned
And into a ghost town our love has turned
I am leaving tomorrow and I’ll never return

Some people feel cold but I feel Antarctic
Some people feel sorrow but I feel heartless
I don’t mean to hurt you but the magic has gone
So after tonight we will both be alone

Our walls have all crumbled
Our bridges have burned
And into a ghost town our love has turned
I am leaving tomorrow and I’ll never return
For into a ghost town our love has turned

Our walls have all crumbled
Our bridges have burned
And into a ghost town our love has turned
I am leaving tomorrow and I’ll never return
For into a ghost town our love has turned
I am leaving tomorrow and I’ll never return
Track Name: Ave Maria
Ave Maria

Words and music © Tim Hudspith, 18 May 2007


Before thee I kneel, Ave Maria
I don’t know how to feel, Ave Maria
I am captured by sorrow, held hostage by tears
And I am a prisoner, of so many fears

I am longing for guidance, Ave Maria
I’m losing my senses, Ave Maria
Heaven is calling, but I cannot hear
I am lost in a moment, where nothing is real

I am a picture of Dorian Grey
You are eternal but I will decay
Ave Maria please heal my pain
Give me the strength to get through the day

Before thee I pray, Ave Maria
As you make me wait, Ave Maria
While all that I hold, so precious and dear
Turns into poison, or disappears

I am a picture of Dorian Grey
You are eternal but I will decay
Ave Maria, heal my pain
Give me the strength to get through the day

Good to see that nothing changes
Not the sights or the sounds
I can recognise some faces
Of the people hanging round

Good evening Jean-Pierre
With your tattoos and thinning hair
Are you still drinking rum?
Do you still carry a gun?

I heard you shot your lover dead
You put your gun against his head
Then you kissed him on his lips
And you’ve been running ever since

It’s good to see you Tracey
Drunk again and looking jaded
I heard you were a floozy
In cheap pornographic movies

You were gonna be a star
So you agreed to play the part

And as for all the rest of you
You’re too afraid to face the truth
Of the secrets deep inside
And the skeletons you hide

How do you do Michelle?
Still left upon the shelf
On the sad side of forty
Tight dress and looking tawdry

Slow dancing all alone
Hopes sinking like a stone

And as for all the rest of you
You’re too afraid to face the truth
Of the secrets deep inside
And the skeletons you hide

And as for me the singer
I’ve got nothing much to say
Sad songs that never linger
Just another gig to play

I had my moment in the sun
With a couple of my songs
But rock and roll moved on
And the money has all gone

And as for all the rest of you
You’re too afraid to face the truth
Of the secrets deep inside
And the skeletons you hide

And as for all the rest of you
You’re too afraid to face the truth
Of the secrets deep inside
And the skeletons you hide
