Lyrics

songs of when the stars went out

Lorem Ipsum (feat. Shane Hennessy)

 Writers: Ashley Davis & Shane Hennessey

Verse 1

What are words when left inside a heart

I wrote to you, I always played my part

I go to bed each night and think 

You'll be beside me in the morning light

But all that's left there is the spacing

For the words that maybe you would write

But after all....

Chorus

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

When I left a place for you to tell me

Everything that's wrong inside your head

But dolorem ipsum is what you left instead

Now the pain itself fills in the blanks

And in the end there's nothing to to be said

Verse 2

You would like to be a hidden star

Covering exits all around your heart

The past is still your alibi 

When you were saying love is just a lie

So take a drink, call out a tune

And know that you didn't even try

But after all....

Chorus

Bridge

But after all, after all you say now what have we got to lose?

Yeah after all, after all you say this life is what we choose

Chorus 

Tag

Yeah the pain itself fills in the blanks

And in the end there's nothing to to be said

Quid novi

Quid novi

Quid novi

The Dry Cloud (How Will I Live Out My Days) feat. Tim O'Brien

Writers: Ashley Davis & Duncan Wickel 

A shadow falls around and under

I saw a cloud, I heard no thunder

My head it hangs low as I wonder

Oh how will I live out my days

How can a cloud no water streaming

Like some lone voice that isn't speaking

A deathly cold heart still a beating

How will I live out my days

The only road I had to take it

Search to find a doorstep still vacant

A bit of news paper makes a blanket

Is this how I live out my days

Oh how will I live out my days

Stars are bright the moon is lonesome

As it falls into the open

Through the trees my heart is breaking

Oh how will I live out my days

You were gone in a moment

Like the dew in the morning

Will I find you out a walking

Oh how will I live out my days

Oh how will I live out my days

Oh how will I live out my days

Oh how will I live out my days

Here By My Side

Writers: Ashley Davis & John Doyle

Verse 1

Someone to love you it'll tear you to pieces

It'll break down your fences, your world falls apart

And the ships they come and go and not one holds you

But I know, that I see you at night

All my dreams are awake

And my asleep never stays

Chorus

Cause if I had you here by my side

I wouldn't waste any time

I'd hold you real close

I'd hold you forever 

Verse 2

When I first saw you, I knew you were mine

Now I can't find you, you live in these lines

For the heart that you once knew now has gone away

Letting go to find a new way

Oh to hold you today

The words that remain

Chorus

Verse 3

I'm farther along now, than I ever was

Can you hear me calling?

To you now my love....

For the shifting of the sands now that scares you

Are the tides bringing you home

Oh know this today, my heart does remain

Chorus 

Chorus 2

Cause if I had you here by my side

I wouldn't waste this time

I'd hold you real close

I'd hold you forever 

Here by My Side

Burning House (feat. Heidi Talbot)

Writer: Cam Ochs

Verse 1

I had a dream about a burning house

You were stuck inside I couldn’t get you out

I laid beside you and I held you close

And the two of us went up in smoke

Love isn’t all that it seems I did you wrong

I will stay here with you until this dream is gone

 

Chorus

 

I’ve been sleep walking

Been wandering all night

Trying to take what’s lost and broke 

And make it right

I’ve been sleep walking too close to the fire

But it’s the only place that I can hold you tight

In this burning house

 

Verse 2

I see you at a party and you look the same

I could take you back but people don’t really change

I wish that we could go back in time

I’d be the one you thought you’d find

Love isn’t all that it seems I did you wrong

I’ll stay here with you until this dream is gone

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

Flames are getting bigger now

In this burning house

I can hold onto you somehow

In this burning house

Oh and I don’t wanna wake up

In this burning house

We ran away from them

Hold my hand and don’t say maybe it’s true

Not Today (feat. Mick McAuley)

Writers: Mick McAuley & Ashley Davis

So long since I’ve seen you baby

Friends they all tell me lately

Maybe it’s just best that way

They say you’re back from over seas

I hear you’ve been asking for me

Still I can’t even say your name

They tell me to let go of you

That you’re gonna break my heart in two

Shut down how I feel and walk away

But not today

No not today

Baby no, maybe never not today

Well it’s true that I’ve been thinking of you

Yeah I’ve been asking for you

Just so I can say your name

Been so long since I’ve seen ya baby

Friends they all tell me lately

Maybe it’s just best that way

 

They tell me to let go of you

That you’re gonna break my heart in two

Shut down how I feel and walk away

But not today

No not today

Baby no, maybe never not today

 

Foot down and walk the other way

Soon I will be moving on 

Soon I"ll sing a different song

Soon I'm gonna be that strong

But not today

No not today

Baby no, maybe never not today

Cause I’ve been holding onto you

Cause that’s just what I wanna do

I lay with you tonight

And baby you felt so right

How can these two hearts be wrong

They tell me to let go of you

Already broke my heart in two

Can't shut down these feelings 

I know I should walk away

But not today

Not not today

Baby no, not today

Someday I'll be moving on 

Soon I"ll sing a different song

Soon I'm gonna be that strong

But not today

Davey Jones

Writers: Gordie Sampson & Michael Logen 

 

Verse 1

I am a simple man

I learned to work with my hands

Out here on these waves

I guess I’ve always known

That I would die alone here

One cold November day

 

Verse 2

I heard that you did take

A brother in the morning

Another without warning

And who am I to think

That I’d be any different

As God is my witness

 

Chorus

I saw Davey Jones

Underneath the water

With a thousand of my fathers 

Calling me home

I saw Davey Jones

Waving his black flag

Counting up his bones

 

Verse 3

They say when I was five

The day I cast my first line

I fell over the port side

As I was sinking down

I heard my mother singing

I heard the church bells ringing

 

And when they pulled me in

I felt him tugging my hand

 

Chorus

 

Verse 4

Now the waves have snapped the mast

I’m taking water so fast

I let go of the line

I can feel my father’s stare

From beyond the grave somewhere

I fail him one last time

Verse 5

Cause I would never be 

The man he thought I should be

The lesser of his sons

So Jesus help me now

Help me to forgive him

Before the darkness floods 

 

Chorus

 

Tag

Yeah I saw Davey Jones

Waving his black flag

Counting up his bones

When He Loved Her Too

Writers: Colin Farrell & Ashley Davis 

Verse 1

She came upon the morning light

That he was walking through

Hearts so big, so strong, so bright

When he loved her too

 

Verse 2

He found her waiting in the stars

As he moved the fields that grew

Among the breaking waves afar

When he loved her too

 

Chorus 1

It’s beautiful she said

I read you in a book 

You would come and by my side

You would always be forever free

 

Verse 3

The days moved on to years ago

As they moved through the blue

She knows his heart better than all

When he loved her too

 

Chorus 2

The trees were flowing by

The English countryside

You would come and by side

You would always be forever free

 

Verse 4

The moons now hang above their heads

It’s a song they’re moving though 

And she wonders night from her bed

If he loved her too….

 

Chorus 3

Cause her mama said it all

He’ll leave you in the fall

The winds will blow

And then you’ll know

If he loved you too

If he loved you too

Annachie Gordon (feat. Shawn Colvin)

Traditional Scottish Ballad

 

Buchan is bonnie and there lives my love

My heart it lies on him, it will not remove

It will not remove for that all that I have done

Oh I never will forget my love Annachie

 

For Annachie Gordon he’s bonnie and he’s braw

He’d entice any woman that ever he saw

He’d entice any woman and so he’s done to me

Oh I never will forget my love Annachie

 

Well down came her father he’s standing at the door

Saying Jeannie you are trying the tricks of a whore

You care nothing for a man who cares so very much for you

You must marry Lord Saltan and leave Annachie

 

For Annachie Gordon he’s only but a man

Although he may be pretty where are all his lands

Cause Saltan’s lands are broad and his towers they stand high

You must marry Lord Saltan and forget Annachie

 

With Annachie Gordon I’d beg for my bread

Before I married Saltan with gold to my head

With gold to my head and gowns to my knee

Oh I’ll die if I don’t get my love Annachie

 

And you who are my parents to the church now bring me

But oh to Lord Saltan I’ll never bear a son

A son or a daughter I’ll never bend my knee

Oh I’ll die if I don’t get my love Annachie

 

Well Jeannie was married and from church was brought home

She and her maidens so merry should have been

When she and her maidens so merry should have been

She has gone now to her chamber and crying all alone

 

Come to bed my Jeannie my honey and my sweet

For to style you my mistress it would be oh so sweet 

Well mistress or Jeannie it’s all the same to me

For it’s in your bed Lord Saltan I never shall be

 

And up and spoke her father he’s spoken with renown

All you her maidens come loosen off her gown

But she fell down to the floor down by their knees

Saying look now I’m dying for my love Annachie

 

The day that Jeannie married was the day that Jeannie died

That’s the day that Annachie came home on the tide

Down came her maidens all wringing of their hands

Saying woe to you oh Annachie for staying from the lands

 

So long from the sands and so long upon the flood

Oh they’ve married your Jeannie and now she is dead

 

All of you her maidens come take me by the hand

And lead me to the chamber where my love lies in

He’s kissed her cold lips until his heart it turned to stone

Now he’ died in the chamber where his true love lies still
