‘Changing Scenes’ Lyrics

1. Poet’s Truth

Vocals/Guitar – Jenny Bishop

Trumpet – Richard Evans

Drums/Percussion/Bass Guitar – Gareth Young

Organ – Luke Bond

 

When I looked into your eyes

I knew I could not disguise my love for you

You take me far away

You take me to a place of light and truth

I’m lost in you

In your eyes I see your soul

It’s there I lose control

And all I want is you there inside of me

Inside of me

All I want is your love, love, love

You and me moving on, moving up, up, up

All I need I see in the depths of your eyes

When your lips touch mine

There is no time

The ribbons you untie

It’s simple, all I need in life is you

And I don’t care what they say

There will never be a day I’d lose for you

That’s my poet’s truth

All you’ll feel from me is love, love, love

You and me moving on, moving up, up, up

All I need I see in the depths of your eyes

When your lips touch mine

There is no time

I didn’t know you and I wanted to

This fire within, it’s kept on burning

And in that moment when I first saw you

My heart it told me what it knew to be true

All I want is your love, love, love

You and me moving on, moving up, up, up

All I need I see in the depths of your eyes

When your lips touch mine

There is no time

 
 

2. Meet Me In The Middle

Vocals/Guitar – Jenny Bishop

Flugelhorn – Richard Evans

Bass Guitar – Joe Sharp

 

Sometimes love goes crazy

And then it’s time to regroup

Sometimes I get so lazy

I’ve got to still make time for you

Just smile yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You can just sleep now, now, now, now

We’ll catch up with each other

Sometime soon, somehow

So on our separate pillows

And as silent as the snow

We’ll spin down into our sleep

And away our spirits go

We’ll meet in the middle tomorrow

Drenched in thought but my mouth is dry

Another moment of life passed by

Feel like I’ve done nothing all day

Finding the time to stop and say

Just smile yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You can just sleep now, now, now, now

We’ll catch up with each other

Sometime soon, somehow

So on our separate pillows

And as silent as the snow

We’ll spin down into our sleep

And away our spirits go

We’ll meet in the middle tomorrow

All this is all about

One thing that’s paramount

Keep this picture in view

Intention is everything

Blind, you undermine everything you do

Just smile yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You can just sleep now, now, now, now

We’ll catch up with each other

Sometime soon, somehow

So on our separate pillows

And as silent as the snow

We’ll spin down into our sleep

And away our spirits go

We’ll meet in the middle tomorrow

Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep

Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep

 
 

3. Lonely Star

Vocals/Guitar – Jenny Bishop

Trumpet – Richard Evans

Drums – Gareth Young

Organ/Piano – Luke Bond

 

Day by day my brave face

Is falling down, falling down

Closing eyes

The sadness inside

Is escaping through my skin

And the darkness calls

I try to follow the light

But the light was in your eyes before

And I don’t see them anymore

There’s a lonely star beating like a heart

And it’s listening

Glistening for me

And I’m asking ‘why?’

It’s not like I haven’t tried

When the love goes astray

And my soul just fades away

The darkness calls

I try to follow the light

But the light was in your eyes before

And I don’t see them anymore

I don’t know how to let you go

I can’t trust that I can breathe

When there is no you and me

I don’t know how to let you go

And I don’t know how to be more than half of me

And I don’t know why it hurts so deep

But I can’t keep myself away from you

The darkness calls

I try to follow the light

But the light was in your eyes before

And I don’t see them anymore

Day by day my brave face

Is falling down

Falling down

 
 

4. Silent Feelings

Vocals/Guitar – Jenny Bishop

Trumpet – Richard Evans

 

Some connection

Some attraction

Like a surfer to the sea

Something chemical

Something burning

Deep inside of me

Washed up

Need to crawl home

I’m gonna stand up

And face it all alone

Each wave folds onto the beach

And as I lie there

They don’t quite reach me

I lift my head and face into the wind

I want to know

Why do you keep me waiting?

Why do you keep me waiting?

Why do you keep me waiting?

Keep me waiting, for you?

I’m focused on the waves retreat

As they slowly edge away

If I were to jump in

Would it make them stay?

The cloud cover darkens the sky

I’m feeling cold as it turns to night

I came here to clear me mind

But I can’t stop asking myself why?

Oh why?

I lift my head and face into the wind

I want to know

Why do you keep me waiting?

Why do you keep me waiting?

Why do you keep me waiting?

Keep me waiting for you?

 
 

5. Freedom

Vocals/Guitar – Jenny Bishop

Trumpet – Richard Evans

Bass Guitar – Joe Sharp

Organ/Glockenspiel – Luke Bond

 

There are places I’ve not been

That doesn’t make me less than him

He can’t see my light

And sometimes I struggle to find purpose

There are faces I can be

They’ll help me hide my vulnerability

But I don’t want to disappear inside

Never to resurface

Freedom, freedom, freedom

I can let you go

He is right that there is darkness

But there’s darkness in us all

He had to keep me there

He needed me to keep on falling

And my weaknesses they grew

And I was dead inside to you

But up this mountain of freedom

I will keep on crawling

Freedom, freedom, freedom

I can let you go

Freedom, freedom, freedom

I can let you go

 
 

6. Lullaby

Vocals/Guitar/Glockenspiel – Jenny Bishop

 

To my oldest one

My first born, my son

I’ll try harder every day

To hold you and make

Those seconds count

Every one

Every one

And I’ve made mistakes that I can’t change

I’m gonna let my love pour down like rain

Live your life honest and true

In all that you do

To my second child

My girl strong and wild

Harder, I’ll try

To have a wholly present mind

When your thoughts have you entwined

And all you want to do is talk

Into the night

And I’ve made mistakes that I can’t change

I’m gonna’ let my love pour down like rain

Never believe that life is hard

Live life slow

‘Cause it goes so fast

To my littlest one

My third bundle of fun

I’ll try harder every day

To sing to you and play

And to savour that bliss

In your smile

And in your kiss

And I’ve made mistakes that I wouldn’t change

I’m gonna let my love pour down like rain

Here I am now telling you this

You fill me with joy

My girls and my boy

There’s not one moment

That I would miss

 
 

7. New Kind Of Man

Vocals/Percussion/Drain pipes – Jenny Bishop

 

Move slow

I didn’t see the end

It reaches down

To the child within

All the secrets not lost

Just left with your bones

Is there any warmth left in the shade in the stones?

Water fell on your face

Frozen they hide you away

Hunger piloting sleep

Foraging the void of unfathered insecurities

Where you are

Not close enough

She held our hearts

To bring love

And a new kind of man

Summer ruin

Hollow moon

Naked heart

Just doors apart

Not strong enough

To fight it off

Move slow

Move slow

Where you are

Not close enough

She held our hearts

To bring love

And a new kind of man

Where you are

Where you are

8. In Your Eyes

Vocals/Piano – Jenny Bishop

Vocals/Guitar/Harmonica – Liam Jordan

Flugelhorn – Richard Evans

I’ve just gone to bed early

For the ninth time since you’ve been gone

My blanket fort is my shelter

I’ve no defence against lost

I am wishing that you are missing me

As I’m holding onto a thread

Of picture perfect memories

And all the loving words that you’ve said

I wanna be in your eyes

I wanna be in your eyes

I wanna be in your eyes for a lifetime

I just woke up early

From the jetlag of the plane

I landed in Toronto

Monday morning in the rain

The sun it is now shining

But I know that you’re not here

With every step I take without you

I shed another tear

I wanna be in your eyes

I wanna be in your eyes

I wanna be in your eyes for a lifetime

Morning light peaks in

I have a choice and I choose you

When the night come drawing in

I have a choice and I choose you

I wanna be in your eyes

I wanna be in your eyes

I wanna be in your eyes for a lifetime

I wanna be in your eyes

I wanna be by your side

I wanna be in your eyes for a lifetime

 
 

9.    Don’t You Knock

Vocals/Guitar – Jenny Bishop

Trumpet – Richard Evans

Percussion – Luke Bond

 

No fear or surprise

There is no way you can deny

Too many holes too big to mend

I’ve got no time left for you my friend

Stone hearts chipped away

A little more every day

It’s common ground and nothing can grow

Where there’s no life, there is no soul

I don’t believe we even left the start

And I won’t be your fallen star

I’ve taken my love

I’ve taken my heart

I won’t feel what I felt before

Don’t you knock on my door

Those words they fall like a curse

They scatter shards and spread your worth

You can try, but I won’t wait

I’ve heard it all before, make no mistake

I don’t believe we even left the start

And I won’t be your fallen star

I’ve taken my love

I’ve taken my heart

I won’t feel what I felt before

Don’t you knock on my door

 
 

10. Gone

Vocals/Piano – Jenny Bishop

 

Why did you keep me there?

What was the power that you had?

Why could you never let me get away?

I knew I was sinking

As you were pulling me in

All that time you were just adding weight

You’d beg me for forgiveness

Then say you’d done no wrong

You could have said

You were already gone

As hard as I tried to hide

From who they told me that you were

There was no hiding from

You always pulling me apart

Did you know that I fought for you?

The endless lies I told myself

Every night I would cry for you

I don’t see how you’ll ever believe

That anything you did was wrong

But you could have said

You were already gone

The fire I had for you

Has finally gone out

This is your last song

My love for you is gone
