The Newly Deads

Trying hard to be cool and have been winging it for nearly a decade. Folky/rocky/ballady/blaa blaa blaa..blooming genres! We write songs, we sing them together, we think they're good..but hard to say when you've played them over and over...Count Arthur Strong likes us though, so we must be doing something right?! ... more

Track Name: Chasing The Morning
Time is turning –
Marking each moment of my life
Every second in a minute
Every minute in an hour every day.
Watch the Horizon –
See the sun carve its arc of holy light
Running ever from the night
Leaves the dark like the closing of my eye

And I’m here – waiting for the morning to come –
Here, waiting for the morning

Comet burning – Fire and Ice
Makes its journey through the stars
Gleams intense with fiery tail
Leaves a blaze for all to trail.
Planets dancing – Make their way
Spinning forward retrograde
How the fabric of the universe is made

And I’m here – waiting for the morning to come –
Still here, waiting for the morning

There’s not a moment to lose in my life -
In every sunrise
Awake and show the world your light!

No more creeping – No more fear
Courage quickens in a teardrop
Open softly like a flower in the dawn.
No more sleeping – I will awake
See my way through thick and thin
Measured out and spiralling back in

Now I’m here – aching for the morning to come
Wide awake – chasing the morning
Track Name: Glass Bowl
When I spy with my mind’s eye
It’s always something beginning with you and I
I look to see now you’re not there
So I see you still don’t play fair
So take them – take them – So take them, take them}
All those years, all those years

If this thing was a glass bowl
Then I just threw it on the floor
If this thing was a glass bowl
Then I just threw it on the floor
And all the King’s horses and all the King’s men
Well I can’t see them putting it back together again
No I-I-I-I-I-I-I
No I never wanted to say goodbye
And I-I-I-I-I-I-I
No I don’t know if I’ve got enough tears to cry

As two old ghosts haunt the same house
Crawl through dreams, quiet as a mouse
Two princesses waiting in their tower
How could they know this was their final hour
So take them – take them – So take them, take them}
All those tears, all those tears


And there’s no chance of my head
Breaking down this wall,
And there’s no chance that I’m
Risking another fall



A trembling bird in a gilded cage
Seems it’s sung the same song for an age
Well that bird is my heart
And its freedom is yet to start
So take them – take them – So take them, take them}
All those fears, all those fears


They say when one door closes another door opens
Will someone in here give me a key
Coz they all seem closed to me
Coz they all seem pretty closed to me
Track Name: I Need Your Love
I need your love
It’s like a hand there in an otherwise bottomless pit
It’s like a diamond in the rough with a thousand tons on top of it
It’s like a river running through and snaking through the valley so deep
It’s like the sunshine breaking through the painful grey
You are my day

When I was alone
No-one there beside me
Nothing but my reflection
No-one to challenge these fears inside me
I sent a calling into the dark
A lighted beacon out to the sea
A shattered whisper on the ragged wind
Won’t you send someone?
Won’t you send someone?
Won’t you send someone for me?

I need your love
It’s like a hand there in an otherwise bottomless pit
It’s like a diamond in the rough with a thousand tons on top of it
It’s like a river running through and snaking through the valley so deep
It’s like the sunshine breaking through the painful grey
You are my day


Brick by brick I built a wall
To keep my skin safe from harm
Your voice broke right through it
Now I’m all awash with calm
I don’t need to swim to shore
Coz I’m no longer lost in the storm
Your voice is the wind in my sails

I need your love
It’s like a hand there in an otherwise bottomless pit
It’s like a diamond in the rough with a thousand tons on top of it
It’s like a river running through and snaking through the valley so deep
It’s like the sunshine breaking through the painful grey
You are my day

I don’t feel at sea no more
I don’t feel at sea no more
I don’t feel at sea no more
Track Name: I Just Don't Care To Remember
Now I see your face – dusted as the damask rose in the dusk
Now I see your eyes – bright like the dew on the lawn of the morning
How I long to meet you – take your hand in mine and feel the shining of the warmth through…
How I fear to wake my broken heart
‘Cause I just don’t care to remember
I just don’t care to remember

See here all the past – rolling my shoulder it’s a boulder of the jet black
Flickering and sickening a silhouette of Mr Was.
Still I hear the voices – twisting and existing in an echo of…
Hissing through the shadows of an untold tale
That I just don’t care to remember
I just don’t care to remember

Put the burden down; bathe me in the light of a new moon tonight -
Scorch me in a blaze of sun tomorrow.
You may want me to talk about it, make it good –
Well you can take your shit and keep it.
I just don’t care to remember
I just don’t care to remember

Look into the future – echoing a rhyme it’s in my mind tonight
Mingling with history a shadow of premonition.
Can I separate? Open to this feeling, to the healing in your eyes
I’ve been waiting my whole life for this moment
And now I just don’t care to remember-
I’ve been waiting my whole life for this moment-
I don’t care to remember…
Track Name: Lovers' Tiff
HIM: You should have told me
HER (2nd time): I should have told you
That you were getting in a rut
That I was getting in a rut
You filthy little harlot
I missed your loving touch
You could have told me you were out with him –
I didn’t want to find another man
Getting in with him
Thought I had a man
Did you think to keep a secret?
You just seemed to look right through me

HER: You know I love you –
HIM (2nd time): I know you love me
But I need someone who cares
Burt you need someone who cares
Who shares – more than the blue lines
Who shares – more than the blue lines
He was just a bit of action

-a distraction
I thought you’d never notice me.

V2 (2nd time echo vocals 2 lines, unison/solo 3rd line)

HIM: What was I thinking
All my moaning and complaining
Well I should have known I’d bring you down.
HER: I tried to be your silver lining
But with your whining
I had to get away from your dark clouds
HIM: You put the knife in
Found the way to twist my heart
- tear my mind apart
HER: You were a bore when you ignored me
And now you call me / but I adore you
To put it back and start again

Last time repeat:
Let’s put it back and start again
Let’s put it back and start again
