Metamorphosis 
c E.Samuels
21st May Ď08 

Verse 1   

A wind is blowing Ė a sudden wind of change    
A dust cloud gathers everywhere.
A shape is growing, forming in the gloom
The sound of  distant drumming fills the air.

Chorus
Donít you just know that something isnít right?
Donít you just feel that there should be more to life?
Donít you just wish there was a future full of promise;
something beautiful and lasting was in sight?...
Metamorphosis 

Verse 2
Here it comes Ė a quivering mass of flesh
Marching through a green and fertile place.
Relentlessly advancing, consuming all it meets
Leaving only barren empty waste.

Chorus

Middle Eight 1
Suddenly the creature is upon me
I feel the earth move all around
A deafening roar of angry voices
I find I recognise the sound
Itís human greed personified
A people monster miles wide
A rabid beast that canít be satisfiedÖ 

Middle Eight 2
Iím sucked into this nightmare journey
Pulled along at lightning speed
But there are others like me trapped here
We join together in our need.
We find a way to cause a change
We watch the creature re-arrange
We witness an emergence new and strangeÖ

Verse 3
There it goes Ė soaring through the air
Light and beautiful in flight
Beneath its wings life returns more fair
A new earth starts to bloom before our sight

Dragonfire  
C Elaine Samuels Ď90s

Verse 1
And it came from nowhere Ė out of
the dark
A gust in
the still air Ė a tell tale spark
On
the walls of the city,
the sentinel sleeps alone.
A hundred years of peace has made him
silent as
the stoneÖ

Chorus
Dragonfire, dragon flame
Bringing death to our eyes
Dragonfire, dragon flame
Watch
the skies

Verse 2
Malice burning, and jaws open wide
Diving and throwing,
the flame from inside
A ball of fire engulfs
the walls, and spills into the street.
Smoke and flames and people running,
the chaos and the heat Ö

Chorus

Verse 3
Now
the beast is sleeping Ė jewelled armour of gold
Wicked through to
the marrow and a thousand years old
On
the walls of the city, the generations wait.
Sharp eyes in
the starlight Ė in case the beast awakes

Chorus

All Fall Down
c Elaine Samuels 2nd June 2006
 

Verse 1         
A change is coming round and I thi
nk its going to last
Itís so hard to take
the step to the future from the past
I feel
the wind of change, I feel the pull of time
I donít know if I can make this climb

Chorus
And we all fall down, all fall down
Change is coming real soon and we all fall down.

Verse 2         
Itís just another day, a corridor in life
But ahead there is acrossroad; so Iíll have to make a choice.
I sense the coming doom, the writingís on the wall;
I thi
nk Iím heading straight for a fall. 

Chorus

Middle 8
Havenít you got a best friend? Someone you can talk to?
Who can pick up the pieces left of you
We are all on this journey, all heading for change
Why donít we stand together and create a new age?

Verse 3         
The tide is on
the turn. The waterís coming in
Iím standing on the edge. Will I sink or will I swim?
Iím reaching out my hands. I can really feel the force
But together we will steer the right course

Chorus

Siren Song  
c Elaine Samuels 13th April 2006

Verse 1
I live on this island, surrounded by the sea
I keep my feet firmly on the ground
And let the sky go by above me
But something is calling
Like a whisper on the wind
Like a hint of spring on frosty winter days
The spirit of the sea is calling out to me
And I know Iím going to have to go away

Chorus
I follow the siren song
It leads me on and on
To who knows where?

Verse 2
Stepping out on
the ocean, a dangerous place to be
I feel
the wind and the tide pulling me on
The grip of
the spirits of the sea
Something is calling, a melody so pure
The like of which may never come again
I have to go along, to follow that sweet song
To give up now would leave me in such pain.

Chorus

Middle 8
Iím so alone
No way back home
The sky grows dim
I cannot swim

Verse 3
I live in this dreamworld, unfettered but alone.
I hear
the voices all around
But I know Iím not at home
I still feel
the calling
Thereís something up ahead
Maybe a jewel or just sparkle on
the sea
I know one day Iíll find, the dream I have in mind
Iím heading for
the place I want to be

Chorus

On this road travelling on now
We can join hands and be happy

Who travelled once upon a time now
Climbing mountains crossing oceans

The sun is shining, the birds are flying

I feel a wake up call
I canít wait to get out and be a part of it all

Enjoy the good times while you may
Help your sisters and your brothers

Make the most of every day

Chorus

The Hunger
c Elaine Samuels, 26th Jan Ď07

Verse 1
Just one taste and youíll be turned
Step into the dark oh oh
Tread that path and youíll get burned
Exploding with a spark oh oh

Chorus
Itís the hunger and itís strong
Itís the hunger drives you on
Itís the hunger takes control
Itís the hunger steals your soul

Verse 2
Like a rush the feeling grows
Drives you on against your will
Reach the place and then time slows
Closing in you feel the thrill

Middle 8
Bite down taste the change
Bite down break the cage
Put out your fire
And quench your desire

Verse 3
In the icy light of dawn
Face up to your deeds oh oh
Calm until the rush returns
A slave to your needs oh oh

Chorus

Before Midnight
c Elaine Samuels 23rd April Ď08

Verse 1
Itís
10 before midnight and everyoneís asleep
Iím staring at the bodies on the floor
Itís
10 before midnight and it makes me want to weep
Soon thereíll be a knocking at the door

Chorus

Where were  you when we heard the warnings?
When the 4 pale  riders started the  war.
Where were you when we tried to fight them?
Where will you be when the reaper calls?

Verse 2
5 minutes to
midnight, what am I going to do?
Only a few are coming round
5 minutes to
midnight, Iím really counting on you
I can feel my heart begin to pound

Chorus

Middle 8
Your spirit left for answers, headed  into the unknown
We searched for your signs along the  way   
You  disappeared from this world, looking for the truth
We need your vision, ďhelp us nowĒ, we  pray

Verse 3

Itís nearly
midnight and moonlight splits the black
Smothering the evil tide with light
Itís nearly
midnight, youíre really coming back
Maybe now together we can fight

Chorus

I'll Always Love You
c Elaine Samuels June Ď95

Verse 1
Looking out over
the sea for the tide to bring you back to me
White waves crash the shore and mist my eyes
The sun is spilling out its blood red life
And seagulls cry on dark and stormy skies

Chorus
And
thereís a warm light waiting in the harbour
And a feeling deep within my heart
There are good times just around the corner
And Iíll always love you, though we are apart

Verse 2
Walking throí cobbled streets where we used to wander hand in hand
The old familiar places donít feel the same
Shadows stretch from every doorway clinging to my feet
I thi
nk of you and whisper out your name

Chorus

Verse 3
The Autumn leaves are flying on the golden light of evening time
I taste
the salt sea  spray upon the air
The lighthouse tall and stark shining out as it grows dark
Reminds how I met you standing
there

Chorus
