about

I went back to Malta this year and wrote this album in the sweltering heat of August. Not sure why, but the Rock always gets me in the mood.
The cover was shot in Valletta, my late grandmother Sunta's hometown..
Very special thanks to Niall Howe, Clark Fisher and Mark Nunis and every single one out there who listens to this. Love you guys.

Track Name: The grass is always greener..
YOU CAN REACH THE HIGHEST PEAKS
RIDE BAD LUCK HIT A LUCKY STREAK
HIT ROCK BOTTOM OR STRIKE GOLD
DIE YOUNG OR LIVE TO GROW OLD

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE
YOU’RE A GLASS HALF EMPTY KINDA GUY
SOME FOLKS AIN’T NEVER SATISFIED
THE GRASS …

FAME AND FORTUNE DON’T MEAN A THING
YOU MIGHT BE BEGGAR YOU COULD BE KING
IT DON'T MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY
LAYING OW OR FLYING HIGH

WONDER WHAT YOU COULD HAVE HAD
CAN’T GET THAT DOUBT OUT OF YOUR HEAD
NOTHING’LL EVER QUENCH YOUR THIRST
THINGS COULD BE BETTER THINGS COULD BE WORSE
Track Name: Time flies
I THOUGHT I HAD PLENTY OF TIME
THERE WASN’T A WORRY ON MY MIND
THE WORLD TREATED ME KIND
THE FUTURE WAS LOOKING BRIGHT

TIME FLIES
AIN’T THAT RIGHT
DON’T LET IT SLIDE
TIME FLIES
TIME FLIES
FAST AS LIGHT
KEEP IT IN MIND
TIME FLIES

ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT THINGS CAN WAIT
I’D GET TO IT EVENTUALLY
WHAT’S THE HURRY ANYWAY
SUDDENLY IT’S TOO LATE

TIME FLIES…

THE YEARS HAVE GONE BY
LOOKS LIKE YOU’RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME
YOU NEVER READ THE SIGNS
TIME FLIES

DON’T LET IT SLIDE TIME FLIES
AIN’T THAT RIGHT TIME FLIES
Track Name: The great beyond
YOU CAN’T SEE NO POINT IN TRYING
TIRED OF LIVING SCARED OF DYING
THIS WORLD IS RUN BY LITTLE MEN
WONDER WHY YOU STILL GIVE A DAMN

EITHER WAY YOU GONNA TURN
ONLY ONE THING TO BE LEARNED
LIVING IS JUST LIKE BEING BLIND
AIN’T GOING TO LEAVE A TRACE BEHIND

YOU LIKE PEOPLE BEST FROM AFAR
YOU RATHER DRINK ALONE AT THE BAR
WE’RE ALL JUST PASSING THROUGH
TIME IS RUNNING OUT REAL SOON

DID YOU EVER GAZE AT THE STARS
DREAM ABOUT THE GREAT BEYOND
ALL YOUR PUSHING AND SHOVING
WILL ALL LEAD TO NOTHING
Track Name: Streets of your home town
5 AM TO HOT TO SLEEP
YOU GET UP AND HIT THE STREETS
IT’S BEEN A WHILE SINCE YOU’VE BEEN HOME
FEELS LIKE YOU’VE NEVER GONE

YOU CUT YOUR LOSSES LONG AGO
PACKED YOUR BAGS AND HIT THE ROAD
YOU PUT ALL YOUR CHIPS ON BLACK
TOO LATE NOW FOR REGRETS

THE PAST IS THE PAST
BUT MEMORIES HIT YOU HARD
NOW THAT YOU’RE WALKING DOWN
THE STREETS OF YOUR HOMETOWN

YOU’RE FEELING KINDA WEIRD
NOTHING EVER CHANGED ROUND HERE
THERE’S NO WAY YOU COULD HAVE STAYED
YET YOU ALWAYS GONNA LOVE THIS PLACE

THE PAST IS THE PAST
BUT MEMORIES HIT YOU HARD
EVERYTIME YOU’RE WALKING DOWN
THE STREETS OF YOUR HOMETOWN

TOO LATE FOR REGRETS
NEVER LOOK BACK
PLENTY DEMONS AROUND
THE STREETS OF YOUR HOMETOWN

THE PAST IS THE PAST
BUT MEMORIES HIT YOU HARD
EVERYTIME YOU’RE WALKING/HANGING DOWN
THE STREETS OF YOUR HOMETOWN
Track Name: Just another guy
I CAN’T TELL YOU NOTHING
YOU DON’T ALREADY KNOW
CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING
YOU HAVEN’T HEARD BEFORE

I CAN’T DO NOTHING
THAT AINT ALREADY BEEN DONE
I CAN’T WIN THIS BATTLE
THAT CAN’T BE WON

I’M JUST ANOTHER GUY
MADE OF FLESH AND BONE
JUST ANOTHER GUY
TRYING TO FIND MY WAY BACK HOME

I CAN’T TAKE THIS PAIN AWAY
NO MATTER HOW I TRY
WE’RE BORN INTO THIS WORLD ALONE
ALONE WE DIE

I’M JUST ANOTHER GUY
LOST IN THE NIGHT
JUST ANOTHER GUY
TRYING TO SURVIVE
Track Name: Waiting for the sky to fall down
YOUR WORRIES ABOUT TOMORROW
BECOME REGRETS OVER YESTERDAY
WHEN YOU HANG YOUR HEAD IN SORROW
YOU FORGET TO LIVE TODAY

YOU SAY YOU GOT IT BAD
YOU SHOULD COUNT YOUR LUCKY STARS
YOU KEEP MAKING EXCUSES
YOU DON’T KNOW HOW FORTUNATE YOU ARE

THE ODDS ARE STACKED AGAINST YOU BEEN DOING IT TOUGH
YOU’RE TIRED OF FIGHTING KINDA HAD ENOUGH
YOU CAN TRY TO TURN THIS SHIP AROUND
OR JUST WAIT FOR THE SKY TO FALL DOWN

YOU CAN SPEND YOUR DAYS
FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF
CURSE THIS CRUEL WORLD
OR TRY AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE

YOU MAY NEVER ARRIVE
BUT YOU CAN TAKE A STANCE
FOR AS LONG AS YOU’RE ALIVE
YOU’RE STILL IN IT WITH A CHANCE

THE ODDS ARE…

SKY DIDN’T FALL DOWN JUST YET
YOU CAN STILL PLACE YOUR BET
TRY TO TURN THIS SHIP AROUND
OR JUST WAIT FOR THE SKY TO FALL DOWN

THE ODDS ARE…
Track Name: After the rain
YOU’VE BEEN DOWN THEY COUNTED YOU OUT
THINKING THIS HURT IS WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT
HIT ROCK BOTTOM NO STRENGTH TO CARRY ON
LOST IN THE DARKNESS THE NIGHT SEEMED SO LONG

YOU BEEN TRICKED TOO MANY WAYS BEFORE
CAN’T SEE THE POINT TO CARRY ON NO MORE
BROKEN HEARTED ONE TOO MANY TIME
NOTHING BUT TROUBLE ON YOUR MIND

BUT AFTER THE RAIN THE SUN’S GONNA SHINE
THIS CRUEL WORLD WILL TREAT YOU KIND
START ALL OVER FORGET ABOUT THE PAIN
THINGS GONNA CHANGE AFTER THE RAIN

THEY SAY YOU CAN’T ALWAYS LOSE
LIFE WON’T ALWAYS BE SO CRUEL
AND DESPITE ALL THE PAIN
SUN’S GONNA SHINE AFTER THE RAIN
Track Name: Let it come to you
IT’S ALWAYS ON YOUR MIND
YOU NEVER SEEM TO FIND
YOU'RE WANTING IT SO BAD
CAN’T GET IT OUT YOUR HEAD

DON’T CHASE YOUR DREAMS AWAY
THINGS HAPPEN JUST THE SAME
BEST THING YOU CAN DO
IS LET IT COME TO YOU

EVERYTHING YOU TRY IS IN VAIN
IT’S DRIVING YOU INANE
HOUSE OF CARDS COME TUMBLING DOWN
STILL YOU HAVEN’T FOUND

SOME FOOLS NEVER LEARN
WHILE THERE’S BRIDGES TO BE BURNED
BEST THING YOU CAN DO
IS LET IT COME TO YOU

IF IT’S MENT TO HAPPEN IT’LL HAPPEN JUST THE SAME
THE MORE YOU WANT IT THE FURTHER IT GETS AWAY
I KNOW IT’S HARD TO FACE THE TRUTH
BUT YOU GOTTA LET IT COME TO YOU
Track Name: Merry Christmas everyone
HER YEAR WAS NOT THE BEST
NOT ANY DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE REST
HAUNTED BY DOUBTS AND REGRETS
SHE’S STILL TRYING TO FORGET

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
I HOPE YOUR HAVING FUN
AND YOURE WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVE
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

HURT INSIDE LINGERS ON
EVERYTHING TURNED OUT WRONG
THAT LUCKY BREAK HASN’T COME
DOWN AND OUT FOR TO LONG

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
ARE YOU MAKING PLENTY RUNS
AND THE BEST IS YET TO COME
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND
TIME TO START OVER AGAIN
GONNA LOSE THIS BALL AND CHAIN
NEXT YEAR IT’LL ALL BE DIFFERENT

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
I HOPE YOUR HAVING FUN
AND YOURE WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVE
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

IN THE END IT’S ALL THE SAME
SOMEBODY GONNA LOSE THIS GAME
PERHAPS SHE’S BETTER OFF THIS WAY
SHE JUST WANTS TO FLY INTO THE FLAME

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
I HOPE YOUR HAVING FUN
THAT YOURE WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVE
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE
Track Name: No river big enough
YOU STOPPED MAKING SENSE LONG TIME AGO
BUT YOU DON’T CARE ANYMORE
YOUR TOO FAR DOWN THAT ONE WAY ROAD
THERE’S NO SHELTER FROM THE COLD

ONLY A MIRACLE CAN SAVE YOU NOW
YOU DON’T GIVE A DAMN ANYHOW
YOU GOTTA BEAT YOUR DEMONS FIRST
NO RIVER’S (EVER) BIG ENOUGH TO QUENCH YOUR THIRST

YOU CAN DROWN TRYING TO CROSS THE OCEAN
OR WAIT ALL YOUR LIFE FOR THE REVOLUTION
NOTHING WILL EVER EASE THE PAIN
ARE THE GODS PLAYING GAMES

ONLY A MIRACLE CAN SAVE YOU NOW
YOU DON’T GIVE A DAMN ANYHOW
YOU GOTTA BEAT YOUR DEMONS FIRST
NO RIVER’S (EVER) BIG ENOUGH TO QUENCH YOUR THIRST

BEST TO ASK FOR NOTHING
CAUSE NOTHING SHALL REMAIN
EVERYTHING YOU HOPED FOR
NEVER EVENTUATES
Track Name: Bad luck
THERE’S NO WINNER IN THIS GAME
IT DON’T MATTER HOW YOU PLAY
EITHER WAY YOU GONNA TURN
SOON YOU GONNA YOU CRASH AND BURN

THE MORE YOU TRY TO UNDERSTAND
THE LESS YOU COMPREHEND
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE IN VAIN
OH BOY AINT THAT A SHAME

THERE ARE NO WINNERS IN THIS GAME
YOU’RE GOING DOWN ALL THE SAME
I CANT PUT YOUR MIND AT REST
CLOSE YOUR EYES HOPE FOR THE BEST

BAD LUCK’S JUST AROUND THE CORNER
WAITING FOR A FOOL LIKE YOU
SHE CAN SEE YOU COMING
FROM A MILE OR TWO
SOMETIMES YOU MIGHT GET IN FRONT
BUT YOU WONT COME OUT ON TOP
WHEN THE END COMES IN TO VIEW
IT’LL SPELL BAD LUCK FOR YOU
Track Name: What was I thinking?
WHAT WAS I THINKING
WHY DIDN’T I QUIT
WHERE DID I LOSE MY WAY
WHEN DID I MAKE A MESS OF IT

WHAT WAS I THINKING
WHERE DID I GO WRONG
WHY DIDN’T I REALISE
WHEN DID THE NIGHT BECOME SO LONG

I WAS SURE AT THE TIME
EVERYTHING WOULD WORK OUT FINE
THERE WASN’T A DOUBT IN MY MIND
GUESS I MUST HAVE BEEN BLIND

WHAT WAS I THINKING..

I THOUGHT I HAD IT MADE
I DIDN’T SEE THAT I WAS PLAYED
MUST HAVE BEEN IN SOME BAD WAY
I’M WISER NOW BUT IT’S TOO LATE

WHAT WAS I THINKING

SHOULD HAVE SEEN IT FROM THE START
I’D END UP WITH A HEAVY HEART
SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS SHIP WAS SINKING
WHAT WAS I THINKING
