City Rain
(Words and music by Gary Parker)
The rain falls on the city streets 
High clouds, soft rain 
Fall from high to ease my pain
Our lives are not in vain
In the city rain 

The pavement shines like pools of light
The water ripples such strange delight 
Rain falls in the dead of night 
Then soon returns to its endless flight 

In the city rain

The rain falls down on everyone
The highest and the lowest born
But it won't wash your sins away
They’ll still be there another day

In the best of times, the worst of times 
This golden age does not desire
These are just more off stage lines
Taking it down to the wire 

In the city rain
Denial
(Words by Dani Tagen and Gary Parker, music by Gary Parker)
My other life was on display
The secret life that you hide away
No more words to say
Your conscience never gets in the way

CHORUS
Denial ain’t just a giver
It can haunt you from the start
Denial ain’t such a giver
It can heal or tear us apart

You said you owe me no explanation
That your fate is always clear
You don’t have to take this line
Cause it will soon disappear

CHORUS

You live your life through media’s eyes
Don’t take the time to analyse
The difference between truth and lies
Living life under angry skies

Falling Leaves
(Words and music by Gary Parker)
VERSE 1

All the bells were ringing and summer was in the air
Was it really summer?
Were we even there?
Now the leaves are brown
And the days are shorter
Soon I’ll be moving on without you
Where did our love go?
Where did our love go?

CHORUS

Like the falling leaves, like the falling leaves
If anyone believes, like the falling leaves
Like the falling leaves, like the falling leaves
Like the falling leaves, like the falling leaves

VERSE 2

Well I've been to Paris and I've been to New York
And I've travelled so far away
But I can’t just move on before telling you
I have these words to say
Where did our love go?
Where did our love go?

CHORUS

VERSE 3

Were we victims of circumstances?
Were we victims of the changing times?
Our paths just went different ways
Like the vines climb
Where did our love go?
Where did our love go?

CHORUS
Fear
(Words by Dani Tagen, music by Gary Parker)
I was holding back in fear
Of showing failure
The answers were so near
Change of behaviour

Locked inside myself
I looked free
Locked inside myself
Lost in certainty

But there was a gut feeling
Something was not quite right
Eager to change
Chasing other heights

Locked inside myself
I longed for the key
Locked inside myself
I see the sea

The waves were forming
Feeling the right time
Change was coming
The world was mine

Locked inside myself
I found the key
Locked inside myself
I feel the sea
Golden Seat
(Words by Dani Tagen, music by Gary Parker)
Americans from the USA
Britain in the UK
Words you say
Games you play

Land of the free
We all want to be
Things you can’t see
From your golden seat

The present changes the past
A normality that hurts
Times may turn too fast
But we learnt to never trust

Land of the free
We all want to be
Things you can’t see
From your golden seat

Where are all the heroes now?
Super heroes and their masks
They can’t save us now
This silence is getting too loud

Land of the free
We all want to be
Things you can’t see
From your golden seat

Blind faces that emit no sound
Inside their echo chambers
Can only find beauty
When close to the ground

Land of the free
We all want to be
Things you can’t see
From your golden seat
No Clear Skies
(Words and music by Gary Parker)
I was thinking, what’s there to say?
When all I want is 
To hide away
And I don’t
I don’t want to recall
Sad times
After the fall

I could be 
Your only one
Or I could be
Your perfect storm

And I don’t
I don’t want to recall
Sad times
After the fall

No clear skies (2x)

I could be 
Your only one
Or I could be
Your perfect storm

And I don’t
I don’t want to recall
Sad times
After the fall

I was feeling you slipping away
Down in Berlin
By the wall
Down in Leipzig
Do you recall?
Paris in Blue
(Words and music by Gary Parker)
Remember me and you 
Hanging on the boulevard 
The Eiffel tower in the distance
The half light fading into night
Falling on your resistance 

Paris in blue 
Paris in blue 
Such passion was new
Paris in blue

The Left Bank Café 
The world was in play
Consuming my heart 
’Till it tore us apart

The broken chorus 
Of the dawn rides the wind
Caresses my face
As the new day begins
Just a teardrop trace

CHORUS

I’m missing you now
The song you would sing
The hope it would bring 
And the promise of spring
Stormy Weather
(Words and music by Gary Parker)

Born in the space age
Faster than the road rage
I’m looking for a new age
The turning of a new page

CHORUS

One more night together
Looks like we're in for stormy weather

(REPEAT)

VERSE 2

I’m looking for a reason
Just something to believe in

Some may call it treason
I’m just a man for all seasons

You’ll always have my heart
No ending or beginning
You’ll always have my heart
No losing or no winning

CHORUS
Style Hacked
(Words and music by Gary Parker)

They said I was a liar
A prisoner of desire 
Nothing to inspire 
My image was on fire

CHORUS

I got style hacked 
I got side tracked
Like it was a redact
I got style hacked
I got style hacked 

I knew it like reflection
There was no real solution 
Some kind of retribution 
Another dark solution 

CHORUS
BREAK

Doubt 
Denial 
Despair 
They are always there
But there’s something in the air!

I thought I was the reason
Not just here for the season 
There is no cohesion 
In an act of treason

CHORUS
Time and Tide
(Words and music by Gary Parker)
Time and tide
Wait for no one
You can tell me what
You think is due

But it just depends
If you are passing through

Time and Tide
Worlds collide
Time and Tide
Worlds collide
Time and tide
Your worlds collide
Time and Tide 
To be sanctified

And it seems
In your broken dreams
All the foolish schemes
They hide in the night

Time and Tide
Worlds collide
Time and Tide
Worlds collide
Time and tide
Your worlds collide
Time and Tide 
To be satisfied

Rainy Night (a new poem by Gary Parker)
It was a rainy night
And the clouds wept from on high
The rain, the rain is falling
Oh the rain is falling, as the fears of the past collide
Like the circles of times past confide
Though we are under an angry sky
We are lovers bound together
In the shadow of the autumn weather
Holding back from sweet surrender
To love and all the joy it brings
I feel the pain of another night without you by my side
These rain clouds will never subside
Till the strangers and the lovers
Take their refuge
In the shadow of the deluge
Washing all this heartache away
Till you return to me
Like the dawning of a brand new day
Look into your heart again
Let the feelings flow like the pouring rain
I know we can never be the same again
Though something's lost, there's something gained
Listen to the rhythms of the rain
Listen to the rhythms of the rain
And your love can return and remain
