I've been waiting all night long.
I need to be in you your loving arms.

I need you now boy here with me.

Track Name: You're On Your Side
You’re On Your Side
By DAPPER

Verse 1
Smile for me, stop your crying.
Things are bad enough without you acting like you’re dying.
‘course I know that it’s been pretty hard on you,
but you’re not the only one here that can sing the blues.

Chorus
So - you’re on your side, and I’m on mine.
I hope you’re having the time of your life.
You’re on you side and I’m on mine.
I wish you everything your heart desires.

Verse 2
If I knew it would turn out this way,
I’d turn the page and do it all over again.
Life’s what you make it but you can’t see round the bends
Cross your fingers this will all be fine in the end.

Chorus

Verse 3(break down)
I’ll shut my mouth and stop my moaning.
Folk who talk too much inevitably are boring.
Say you’ll always be my friend.
I’ll say I’ll love you till the bitter end.

Chorus x 2
Track Name: Let You Down
Let You Down
By DAPPER and Tom O’Reilly

Verse 1
Talk to me, Sing to me,
Come and have a drink with me.
I’m free and easy, no place to go
The lights are down and all I know is

Bridge
It’s high time, your eyes
Were opened wide and beckoning me inside
And, oh my, sweet lie
Whatcha ya give to know what’s running’ thru my mind?

Verse 2
Come with me, away with me
I’ll let you have your wicked way with me
I’m free and easy, _ No place to go
I’ll let you down before I let you know

Bridge
It’s high time, your eyes
Were opened wide and beckoning me inside
And, oh my, sweet lie
Whatcha ya give to know what’s running’ thru my mind?

Chorus
All I need is time to breathe you in and out
But seriously - you can't trust me, I'll let you down.
And if you want is all I’m not, then where’s your doubt
But if you start me up, I won’t let up until I’ve let you down

Verse 3
Can’t you see, it isn’t me
It’s just the demon that’s inside me
And, it aint easy oh no no.
Cos when I come you know it’s time to go

Bridge

Chorus
Track Name: Stalling
Stalling

(Verse – as intro)
Here in this small town,
It’s like we’re chasing shadows,
Just trying to make our way to something that isn’t there.
And a job is a job,
And if a car’s not a cab,
It’s going nowhere, stuck in nowhere traffic, falling freely.

Bridge
That's when you find that you’re out of time,
Open your eyes and take a good look around you

Chorus
You’re just stalling
Ain’t nobody gonna start you up,
Ain’t no way that you can ever stop,
You’re stalling
Time’s gonna come when you hit the ground

Verse 2
Moving in circles,
To pay the bills and taxes,
And then you find your rainbow don’t have no pot of gold
And the jewellery’s sold, and you’re out in the cold
And you’re going nowhere, stuck in nowhere traffic, falling freely.

Bridge
That's when you find that you’re out of time,
Open your eyes and take a good look around you

Chorus
You’re just stalling
Ain’t nobody gonna start you up,
Ain’t no way that you can ever stop,
You’re stalling
Time’s gonna come when you hit the ground

Solo

You’re just stalling
Ain’t nobody gonna start you up,
Ain’t no way that you can ever stop,
You’re stalling
Time’s gonna come when you hit the ground
You’re just stalling
Ain’t nobody gonna start you up,
Ain’t no way that you can ever stop,
You’re stalling
Time’s coming round when you’ll hit the ground
Track Name: Billy Baby
Billy’s Baby
By DAPPER

Verse 1
Billy’s baby, I’m sure she was looking at me. I wonder what she’s thinking as she slides up the big settee.
Should I kiss her, or shoot her down in flames?
Billy won’t be happy if she looks at me again.

Bridge
Never touched her, never will. What can I do? She loves me against my will.
I can’t love her. Don’t mean I can’t try.
Me and billy’s baby gonna run off tonight.

Chorus
Me and Billy’s baby – secret dreamers, ‘cause we can’t run away.
Me and Billy’s baby. Billy can’t see that we were meant to be.

Verse 2
Billy asks her how he can love her more.
He gets her angry, she comes knocking down my door.
Doesn’t mean it when he knocks her to the floor.
She needs to get away. ‘ won’t hurt her any more.

Bridge

Chorus

Verse 3
My friend Billy won’t talk to me again.
He’s gonna shoot me with a six-shot pistol in his hand.
She keeps on running , but Billy’s close behind.
He’s still thinking I got Billy’s girl tonight.

Chorus X 2
Track Name: My Mistake
My Mistake
By DAPPER

Verse1

Everything comes in time, Colours match and words will rhyme.
Things should work out easily,
But I know that something went wrong cause that´s
not how they worked out for me.
So I dropped everything, I jumped when she said when. I even asked her how high.
Now I´m sitting here writing this song as I´m watching my life pass me
by.
 
Chorus
It´s just the chance we take. This was my mistake to make.
I bet it all on you. Now I need you to pull me through.
It´s just the chance we take. But it was my mistake to make.......
 
Verse 2

Writing coz I can´t speak. Digging in too deep, Don´t see how it´s gonna end,
and I can´t even say this to you and you are my only friend. 
So I drink and I smoke, you Scream and I joke - it´s just easier that was.
But if you took my hand in the dark you could show me the way.
 
Chorus

Middle
 
Chorus to end.
