Track Name: Be Loved
Be Loved
Music & Lyrics by Tim Hulsman © 2015

I’ve got a little plan
I’m striving to be better
Oh I think I can
Cos’ I’ve got inspiration

I don’t want your life, ‘cos I don’t want your problems (x2)

All I ever wanted was to be loved
All I ever wanted was some real love
All I ever wanted was to feel loved
For who I am
Who I am…is who I am.

I can see the signs
The chasms in the system
I just can’t believe
Your Internet religion

I don’t want your life, ‘cos I don’t want your problems
You can keep your life and you can keep your problems

Chorus

(Bridge)
Why can’t you see?
I always have and always will be…
Unique.

Chorus
Track Name: Monster
Monster
Music & Lyrics by Tim Hulsman © 2015

You’ve been using for so long that you don’t know yourself, no more
You won’t even answer your door
You went down that road too far and now you’re lost in the dark
Turning around is just too hard

Hey! You’re not the only one to cry
And wish this world were all black and white
But once you start to think you own the truth
It brings the monster out in you

You’ve been angry for so long, abusing all that you held near
You’ve wasted blood and lonely tears

Maybe one day you’ll decide you’ve had enough, you’ve done your time
You’ve lost that fire in your eyes…when’re you gonna realise that..

Hey! You’re not the only one to cry
You wish this world were all black and white
But once you start to think you own the truth
It brings the monster out in you
It brings the monster out in you

I’ve been trying for so long,
To forgive you all you’ve done me wrong
But maybe I’ve been using you.
Track Name: Lap Dog
Lap Dog
Music & Lyrics by Tim Hulsman © 2015

When I’m not around, she don’t make a sound
She just sits right there and stares at the wall.
She won’t move an inch, from that place she sits
It’s almost like she isn’t there at all.
Oh my my…Don’t steal her away.

When I walk I there, I feel the tension in the air
And I know it won’t be long until she sings
So I sit her on my knee and she begins to sing with glee
As I run my fingers gentle down her strings

Oh my my…Don’t steal her away
Oh my my…She loves to play.

She’s got a Lap Dog, a Lap Dog, a Lap Dog, a Lap Dog, Lap Dog
A little Lap Dog...She loves to play.

Oh my my…She’s so beautiful.
(Guitar solo)

So if you come around, you might hear the sound
Of the two of us, singing up a storm
And if you’re lucky then, we might sing again
All through the night and into the dawn

Lap Dog section (x2)
Extended Chorus x2 (oh my my…)
Track Name: Home Fires
Home Fires
Music and Lyrics by Tim Hulsman © 2015

I’m driving home from Bendigo to Geelong
And the white line starts to hypnotise my mind
Those spinning tyres seem to hum a song
And I’m drifting in and out of real time

As I pass by Hanging Rock again I know it’s time for my favourite sounds
I need for my mind to clear so I turn that music way up...loud…

Lead me home…Save my soul…Lead me home
You know you got it all right
I can see the home fires
We’re gonna make it there tonight
Kelly Joe…you troubled soul

(Guitar solo)

As the lights of Barwon Prison shine
The music is still keeping me alive
It’s the sweetest sound I’ve ever heard
And I’m singing along with every single word….

Lead Me Home…Save My Soul…Lead Me Home
You know you got it all right
I can see the home fires
We’re gonna make it there tonight (x4)
Wandering soul…Kelly-Joe
You’re getting old…why don’t you roll on home?
Track Name: Ella
Ella
Music & Lyrics by Tim Hulsman © 2015

Kick up your heels girl and let your hair down
Raise up your skirt girl, and spin it around
Dance with your hands girl, up to the moon
Do it right now girl, while you’re alone in your room.
‘Cos there’s no-one like you girl
There’s no-one like you…

There’s no-one like you girl
There’s no-one like you
There’s no-one like you girl
No one like you
There’s no-one like you
There’s no-one like you…

Look at yourself girl, at your beautiful face
Now hold your hands girl, wrap your arms round your waist
This is your self, girl. This is your truth.
In all of this world girl, there’s no-one like you…

There’s no-one like you girl
There’s no-one like you
There’s no-one like you girl
No one like you
There’s no-one like you
There’s no-one like you…
Track Name: Beautiful View
Beautiful View
Music by Hulsman & Kelly / Lyrics by Hulsman © 2015

We buried our hatchets in the sky
And told the universe we’d love or die
We left our baggage at the door
Gave of ourselves, we never kept score
We never keep score…

I make you laugh at the stupidest things
You make me feel like I’m free from sin
I told the truth, and you let me loose
Then you opened up like a beautiful view

You’re like a beautiful view
Beautiful view.

We buried your sister in July
And I held you long as you let fly
It’s like holding a candle to the sun
Tell me how do you move when your heart weighs a tonne?
Your heart weighs a tonne…

When we make love it’s a beautiful thing
Our hearts and our minds and our bodies in sync
We’ve got our youth we’ve got nothing to lose
You opened up like a beautiful view

Like a beautiful view
Beautiful view.

Well I’m watching out for you
Just like you want me to
And I know you’re watching me too
But I don’t know what you see
When you see right through me
And I’m here in front of your eyes
I’ve got so much to give
We’ve got so much to live
You came from out of the blue
We’re looking straight ahead
Forget what your daddy said!
I know we’re gonna be fine
Yes I know we’re gonna be fine
Cos’ it’s a beautiful view

Beautiful view
A beautiful view
Beautiful view
You’re a beautiful view

Beautiful View
Here’s looking at you.
Track Name: Alien Heart Boy
Alien Heart Boy
Music & Lyrics by Tim Hulsman © 2015

You’re a boy with a heart of gold
All locked up in a chest of stone
Time flies by boy and you’re getting old
But no one really seems to know you

All you ever wanted was to show who you are
But all they ever noticed was a little man from Mars
What’ya gonna do with your heart boy
What’ya gonna do with your heart boy, your heart boy.

It only takes one, to know you well
To share the secrets that you’ve so long held
What’s the difference if you could just let it shine?
I’ve got a feeling you’ll be fine

All you ever wanted was to show who you are
But all they ever noticed was a little man from Mars
What ya gonna do with your heart boy
What ya gonna do with your heart boy, your heart boy.

So why do you keep hiding away?
I’ve got to go seek, just to get a peek of you some days
Why do you keep running away?
You’ve got your space ship so you can just fly away
Fly away…
Chorus
Track Name: Going Home
Going Home
Music & Lyrics by Tim Hulsman © 2015

Well that old front gate still has a squeaky hinge
A note to my self “I’d better fix that while I’m here”
And those four front steps, they seem smaller now
But they’re twice as hard to climb
I’m thinking about just turning around
Cos I’m burning up inside

And I hope that you don’t mind……………
Mind me stopping by.

Well I knock on that front door instead of ringing on your bell
You know that secret knock that you taught me,
That the whole world knows so well.
And as I stand here on your porch with the sunlight streaming through
I realise I probably should have called but now…
What am I to do?

I just hope that you don’t mind……………
Mind me passing through

Tell me why do I feel so compelled to make you understand
(Understand)
That I am no longer your boy and I sure ain’t your man?
(I’m not your man)
I know that you’ve heard but I want for your own eyes to see
(Why Can’t you see?)
That I will survive and I’ll be all of the man I should be
(All I should be)
And that’s no thanks to you.
That’s no thanks to you.

(Guitar solo)

Well finally there’s a noise behind the door
Just a little shuffle and a creaking of the floors boards
And as that front door opens wide and you adjust your eyes
This moment I’ve been waiting so long for has finally arrived

And I hope that you’ll forgive me………………
The tears in my eyes
Cos there’s no mistaking…………………
That you’ve got my old Mother’s eyes.
Track Name: Impossible Road
Impossible Road
Music & Lyrics by Tim Hulsman © 2015

There’s a road that leads to dreams
And it ain’t your straight and narrow
It’s a road that’s hard to find
And if you do it’s hard to follow.

I’m on that road
That long and winding road
I’m on this road
They call Impossible…

Impossible… Road (x4)
Don’t go down that road!

There’s a shy and humble crossroad
And it does not wear a sign
Cos it’s a choice that you make in the twilight
Do you follow your heart or your mind?

Chorus

(Guitar solo > Break down)

Well it may be right around the corner
And it may be right in front of your eyes
It may be
Just an illusion
For all the logic it defies

Chorus
Track Name: We're Gonna Make It
We’re Gonna Make It
Music & Lyrics by Tim Hulsman © 2015

It’s been a long time between drinks my friend
But now we’re drinking deeply
I’ve got such an appetite for change
And I tell you after all this time I’m still hungry
Still hungry.

When you lift me up I can see for miles
And you fill this room with your beautiful smile
I made my choice to be with you baby
And there’re no regrets for this love we’re making
We’re gonna make it…we’re gonna make it.

It feels like a long life, full of so many things
But are we really living?
I’ve got to pinch myself on occasion
Just to check that I’m not dreaming.

When you lift me up I can see for miles
And you fill this room with your beautiful smile
I made my choice to be with you baby
And there’re no regrets for this love we’re making
We’re gonna make it…we’re gonna make it.

And it feels like there’s no better thing to do
Than to touch your skin
And it feels like we make a better world
Every time we kiss my darling
We’re gonna make it.
