about

No matter what we might like to think, we are never really in control of our lives. We are all victims of chance and coincidence. ‘A Sad Affair’ is an album of original songs that describe difficult circumstances that we’ve all personally encountered. You may find yourself in a similar position at some point on your journey. There are no simple answers. These situations are unique to each individual and usually unavoidable, but we hope the experience leaves you stronger and more determined.

Track Name: A Sad Affair
It’s a sad affair
When you’ve put up with as much as you can take
And it seems as if the world is closing in on you
And it feels like your heart is gonna break

It’s a sad affair
When you can't find a reason to go on
And you know that the love you had is over now
And all of that feeling is gone
Track Name: Shattered Dreams
You can't go on
Building your world upon shattered dreams
You can't go on living your life in the past
Oh, no, you've got to realise
It wasn't what it seems
Foolish plans in careless hands
It was never gonna last

You can't go on
Wasting your love on a broken heart
You can't go on wanting what's already gone
Oh, no, you've got to realise that you're worlds apart
Distant days, a different place
It's over and done

Just don't go on wishing and turning your hopes
Into shattered dreams
The pieces are missing just look around
There's nothing there
Don't think that there's somebody waiting
Who understands how it feels
No one's gonna know
No one's gonna care

You can't go on
Hiding away from reality
You can't go on seeking what you'll never find
Oh, no, you've got to realise it's all fantasy
Twisted views, altered truths
You're losing your mind
Track Name: Like A Fool
Now I can hear them laugh
Is it so amusing?
There are only strangers here
And all so cruel
And I know what they’re thinking
There are no lovers
Like a fool

Who needs these people now?
I’m tired of losing
Who needs their lukewarm hearts
That quickly cool?
When I know what they’re saying
There are no lovers
Like a fool

Things seem so different now
I see right through their lies
And when I need the truth
I just look in their eyes

The walls they build themselves
Are of their choosing
They’re so convinced their dreams
Will all come true
And all the while they tell me
There are no lovers
Like a fool
Track Name: Moochy Man
It's a starry night
And the moon's aglow
You feel safe inside
But you never know
Not a breath of air
Like they cast a spell
Is there someone there?
You never can tell

Could be the Moochy Man
Trying to take control
The Moochy Man
Trying to take your soul
He'll catch you if he can
Hiding in the dark
The Moochy Man
Gonna steal your heart
Track Name: Run For Your Life
Down in the sewer there's a new game
Selling tears just to cloud up your eyes
Then they stab you in the back
When you're sleeping
Down in the gutter there's a new way
You can't tell the truth from the lies
And they steal all the secrets your keeping

Better run for your life
You're in danger
You taught your children too well
Now they're taking sweets from a stranger
In this hell

Up on a cloud they put an angel
With a smile that could turn you to stone
Yet they're down on their knees and they're praying
Hiding in the shadows is the jackal
He's waiting to get you alone
Then he's in for the kill and the slayiing

Better run for your life
No use fighting
He's prepared for the battle too well
And he'll cut you faster than lightning
In this hell

Down in the ground are the memories
But they may as well have never been born
For they lived and they died all for nothing
Out on a limb are the dreamers
But the chances they hoped for are gone
And hate is the new way of loving

Better run for your life
Can't you see it?
We all know the answer too well
But some just don't want to believe it
In this hell
Track Name: As Cold As Ice
The nights are colder, closing in on me
But I remember how it used to be
Now I feel I’m sinking under
Everything just seems to get me down

There used to be a time I know
It never felt like that
I used to see a love light in your eyes
Melting rivers of gold
Too hot to hold
Now your heart’s as cold as ice

The nights seem longer, just go on and on
And now I wonder where the love has gone
Just the sound of distant thunder
It's all over and done

There used to be a time I know
It never felt like that
I used to see a love light in your eyes
Melting rivers of gold
Too hot to hold
Now your heart’s as cold as ice
Track Name: Stay Here Where You Belong
So you've been out on your own
Suppose I always knew you would
I tried to change your mind
Tried to hold you back
But you had to know the truth

Had to find out for yourself
Had to see the way it is
I wanted you to know
Wanted you to learn
But not find out like this
There never seemed to be a moment to explain

I was there at the first when they started it
Even then I knew that it was wrong
It's all madness, let's have no part of it
Stay here where you belong

Did they try to break your heart?
Did your lover make you cry?
Did he promise you the world
Take you in his arms
And whisper all those lies?

And when you felt that it was good
Like it’s never been before
You were down upon your knees
Begging him to stay
He was walking out the door
I know it's true and I've had to bear the pain

I was there at the first when they started it
Even then I knew that it was wrong
It's all madness, let's have no part of it
Stay here where you belong

Did the children make you laugh?
Did their voices sound so sweet?
Did they sing their pretty songs
Take you by the hand
And dance you in the street?

And when you felt that it was good
And you'd forgotten all the lies
You turned around to find
That the children all were grown
And there was hatred in their eyes
I never want to see you hurt like that again

I was there at the first when they started it
Even then I knew that it was wrong.
It's all madness, let's have no part of it
Stay here where you belong
Track Name: On Fire
Seeing is believing
So try to understand
And put yourself in my shoes
I played into your hands
A baptism of fire
Fire
A baptism of fire
Fire
Tricked me in a heartbeat
I never stood a chance
On fire
Fire

Try to cast your mind back
Lazing in the sun
All the days were numbered
Living on the run
A baptism of fire
Fire
A baptism of fire
Fire
Cos beggars can't be choosers
You've got to take the heat
On Fire
Fire

Standing at the crossroads
Back against the wall
Slipping through your fingers
Pride before a fall
A baptism of fire
Fire
A baptism of fire
Fire
Thought I’d gone to heaven
But I found myself in hell
On Fire
Fire
Track Name: She's Not For You
I used to think that they were trying to be cruel
And I'd lose my head
Trying to make me look like some kind of fool
Every time they said

She's not for you
You're from the wrong side of the track
Better walk right back
She moves too fast
She doesn't show it
But she's out of your class
And don't think she doesn't know it

She's not for you
Maybe she'll want you for a while
It makes her smile
To think she could break up your heart
If you let her
But you'd be better off
Trying to forget her

And so I'd turn and put my back to the wall
And say "You just don't know"
"You don't care about my feelings at all"
And then they'd tell me so

She's not for you
She's only playing her little game
They're all the same
She likes to feel your attention upon her
She'll never need you the way that you want her

Cos she's not for you
Just look at everything she's got
Everything you're not
Before she starts to set your world on fire
Just turn your head away and walk right on by her
Track Name: When We Were Young
Watching in the shadows
Winter's drawing fast
Don't think I can see it through
Don't think I can last
Remembering the summer
Walking in the sun
Never felt the cold
When we were young

Didn't need a reason
Didn't need a rhyme
Never short of laughter
Never short of time
Didn't plan tomorrow
Till the day was done
Never short of life
When we were young

Didn't stop to wonder
Were we right or were we wrong
We had all we needed
To build our dreams upon
Never thought we'd look back
And summer would be gone
Didn't have a care
When we were young

Watching in the shadows
Winter's almost here
Nothing left to hope for
Everything to fear
Want to turn around now
Scared of going on
Never felt afraid
When we were young
