Just a Show – inspiration

The lyrics for “Just a Show” are here. I love being a performer; I love playing music for a living. I love that every day my job is different to the day before: no two gigs are ever the same. The venue will be different, the audience will be different, the weather and mood will […]

Just a Show – lyrics

Columns and posters of glamour Bright neon lights from the fast food chain Glittering eyelids, luxurious lashes Here we go again High heels precariously perching Ripped off with relief when the night is done The feathers, the finery, fantastic fiasco The battle’s lost and won Chorus: It’s just a show Give them what they came […]

Pass It On – inspiration

The lyrics for “Pass It On” are here. My uncle King Toh was the initial catalyst behind this song. He very generously donated to a crowdfunding campaign for my last album, and his reward was for me to write a song on his topic of choice. Several other people were also recipients of this same […]

My ism not your ism We are prisoners of each extreme Each one believing that they are supreme Working class against the wealthy, capitalism, communism Left against the right, all the shades divided by the prism We are prisoners of each […]

I Love You, But – inspiration

The lyrics for “I Love You, But” are here. This song is the latest in a string of songs that I wrote about one life experience – from “Disappointed” to “Impostor” to “Give Me a Reason“. I guess there are good things that come out of every hardship that you go through: you become stronger […]

I Love You, But – lyrics

We were much more than friends A higher connection You were my love, my trust, my blood But then a shadow crept across your face You chose the way that led to your disgrace Chorus: So tied up, don’t know what to do ‘cause I I love you, but I really don’t like you Said […]
