Tim Yarham The sort of music that makes you want to sit with good friends and really good whiskey. Every time you listen there are new subtleties to hear in the music. Favorite track: The Carpenter & The Angel.

about

This is a very chilled album.
It's an exploration of the characters inside a traumatised mind.

Track Name: That Ain't Me
That Ain’t Me.


I’m not the one that you’ve been thinking
It’s not me you’re looking for
I’m not the one that you’ve been dreaming of
I’m not knocking on your door.

That ain’t me, that faded photo
And I don’t call your telephone
But that’s me off over yonder
Cold, dirty and alone

That’s not me outside your window
It’s not my voice that serenade
I’m not your knight in shining armour
Nor your cool, long glass of lemonade

That ain’t me, that faded photo
And I don’t call your telephone
But that’s me off over yonder
Cold, dirty and alone

Don’t turn around I’m not behind you
I’m not beside you or at your feet
You won’t find me round the corner
Nor passing out in your street

‘Cos that ain’t me, that faded photo
And I don’t ever call your telephone
But that’s me off over yonder
Cold, dirty and alone

Yeah that’s me, off over yonder
Cold, dirty and alone
Track Name: Permission
Permission

It all seems even, calm and subdued
There’s a groove called life and it’s talking to you
So get sucked in and think it’s all cool,
But keep in mind there’s only one rule

That every thing changes, everything changes
Fun into danger and friends into strangers

You don’t need it but here’s permission
To live your life in your style
There is freedom in every moment
Just stay alive and it’s all right
To live your life in your style

Open your heart and draw a bigger picture,
Don’t close your eyes on this roller coaster
Don’t be afraid and trust in this
Just be your self and everything will fit

But every thing changes, everything changes.
Fun into danger and friends into strangers

If you need it, here’s permission
To live your life in your style
There is freedom in this moment
Just live your life, in your style
You don’t need it but here’s permission
To live your life in your style
There is freedom in every moment
Just stay alive and it’s all right,
To live your life in your style

On the fast track today, tomorrow’s crawling
Don’t stay at home when the wild ones are calling
This all comes down when the lease runs out
It all moves on like a merry-go-round.

But every thing changes, everything changes.
Fun into danger and friends into strangers

You don’t need it but here’s permission
To live your life in your style
There is freedom in every moment
Just stay alive and it’s all right
If you need it, you have permission
To live your life in your style
There is freedom in this moment
Just live your life and it’s all right
Stay alive in your style
Track Name: See Saw
See Saw


She’s still smiling
Great night, last night
She feels so sexy
Feels aggressive, tonight

He’s not crying
No emotion
He feels so empty
But he’s feeling plenty, inside

She don’t know why he won’t smile
And he won’t show that he’s alright
She can’t ask for what she’s denied
And he can’t seem to do anything right
Anything right
Is anything right?

She just takes it
And then eats it
It feels so primal
Feels animal, alive

He sits quiet
He’s holding his heart
He feels so restless
But he seemed so reckless, last night

She don’t know why he won’t smile
And he won’t show that he’s alright
He just takes what he desires
Then he just dreams
And she just screams
Cos he can’t seem to do anything right
Anything right
Is anything right?
Track Name: Suzi Blue
Suzi Blue

Don’t ask me what I’m doing
I’ll tell you that I’m Suzi blue
Don’t ask me how I’m feeling
I’ll tell you that I’m Suzi blue

Not much else goes on around here
And I would’nt want to be in your shoes
You must be getting tired of my Suzi blues

Don’t ask me what I’m thinking
I’ll tell you that I’m Suzi blue
Don’t ask me why I’m drinking
I’ll tell you that I’m Suzi blue

Not much else goes on around here
And I would’nt want to be in your shoes
You must be sick and tired of my Suzi blues

I keep on dreaming that she’ll be home soon
And you won’t have to listen to this tired old tune
Cos’ I won’t be crying to the sad old moon
You must be sick and tired of my Suzi blues

Don’t talk about the weather
I’ll tell you that it’s Suzi blue

Nothing else goes on around here
And I should’nt want to be in your shoes
But I must be going crazy from my Suzi blues
Track Name: Black Sheep
Black Sheep

It’s been so many years
Since I ran away
I shed my last tear today
And I don’t know how I’ll go
Going with the flow.

Well I know the choice was mine
I’ve got so many things on my mind
And there’s a space right here, where you used to be
And I don’t know how I’ll go
But I’m going with the flow

This vacuum is not an empty hole
It’s just a space to fill that you can’t hold
Things keep changing in this world of ours
Don’t be a fool or you’ll get left behind

I know that I’ll be fine
I’ve got my music here and it soothes my mind
There’s no pictures of you, hanging on my walls
And I don’t know how I’ll go
I’m just going with the flow

I’ve spent too long fighting the crowds
I don’t know how to walk straight and proud
I’m like a black sheep
So I don’t know how I’ll go
Just going with the flow

This vacuum is not an empty hole
It’s just a space to fill that you can’t hold
Things keep changing in this world of ours
Don’t be a fool or you’ll get left behind
And don’t be afraid or you’ll be hard to find
Don’t get stuck on an old valentine
Or this crazy old life will just pass you on by.

I don’t know how I’ll go
But I’m going with the flow.
Track Name: Out There
Out There

She cries for her piece of mind
Begs the moon for its’ wisdom
She tries to figure it out
Tries to stop her self, drifting

Out there……………………

“This life is a shadow charade,
Change its’ tune for no reason
No pride in what we’ve become
Just a word with no meaning!”

Out there……………………

She wants to fly, like in her dreams
Far away from this prison
Try to get miles in between
Get some serious distance

Out there………………………
Track Name: Princess
Princess

You’re so beautiful you’re so complete
Feel like I should be down, kissing your….
Kissing your feet.
Everybody loves you, whenever you’re around
But you let people trust you, then you….
You just let them down (you let them down.)

So don’t go ‘round
Saying that you still love me (you don’t love me)
And I won’t go
Saying that I still want you
I don’t want you, no more.

You’re so beautiful you’re so confident
But if you had what you want,
Would you be content?
Would you be content?
Everybody loves you when you don’t say no
But there’s only so much you can do…
Before you will blow
You might, you might, you might just blow

So don’t go ‘round
Saying that you still hold me (you don’t hold me)
And I won’t go
Saying that I still want you
I don’t want you, no more.

See me riding off into the sun set…. sun set
See me riding off into the sun set…. sun set
It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing
Bye-baby bye-bye Princess

You’re so beautiful you’re so complete
Oh and you make me feel like I should be down….
Like I should be down, should be down, should be down
Kissing you feet
Track Name: The Carpenter & The Angel
The Carpenter & the Angel


She walks with the moon
Dragging oceans behind her
And the power in her eyes is,
Ancient and wise

She out-stares the sun
And scatters the wind
And her loving arms are inviting me in
Inviting me in to her loving arms

Afraid to touch your beautiful soul
Cos mine’s so rough and dirty
Afraid to touch your beautiful skin
Cos my hands are rough and dirty
Yeah I’m so rough and…

Her journey is long
And it hides well its perils
As lovers and helpers
And anything that she finds is special

But her spirit is strong
A sanctuary heart
And her loving arms are just drawing me in
Inviting me in to her loving arms

Afraid to touch your beautiful soul
Cos mine’s so rough and dirty
Afraid to touch your beautiful skin
Cos my hands are rough and dirty
Yeah I’m so rough and dirty.

Compelled to touch your beautiful skin
But my hands are rough and dirty
Yeah my hands are rough and dirty
I’m so rough and dirty
Track Name: Endless Deep
Endless Deep

Just close your eyes and don’t feel the need to speak
I know your kind, a mind that’s so endless deep
That you find it hard to sleep

It’s just an endless parade, of faces and voices and streets
You’re your own slave, but you’ll never cry defeat
You stand on your own two feet

And if it’s all the same
I’d rather not know your name
Because I already like your face
And labels are not my game
There’s always a price to be paid
There’s always a price.

Just open your mind and don’t feel the need for speed
I know that it’s time to reveal all those secrets you keep
They won’t let you sleep

And if it’s all the same
I’d rather not know your name
Because I already like your face
And labels are not my game
There’s always a price to be paid
There’s always a price

Just close your eyes but don’t feel the need to sleep
You’re all alone in your mind that’s so endless deep
That you’ll find it hard to sleep
You find it hard to sleep
You’ll never know you’re asleep
You’re asleep.
