Tom Rosenthal Finger On My Head

There’s no escape but I’m looking out

and I’ll sit because I’m tired

I’ll never see you again but I’ve got a picture of us

I put my finger on my head so i can just see you

Let me be, something dies every day and I’ve got plenty of hours

I put my finger on my head so i can just see you

Every silver lining has a cloud

Tom Rosenthal No Time For A Baguette

I got no time for a baguette

I got no time for a tea

I got no time for you and

You’ve got no time for me

You’ve got no time for me

I’ve got no time for the sauce,

I’ve got no time for a wee

I’ve got not time for you and

You’ve got not time for me

You’ve got no time for me

Stop the clock

Tom Rosenthal Watching You Watching YouTube In The Dark

Watching you watching YouTube in the dark

The pasta is done, the spirits are a little low

Sometimes nothing really happens in a day

Sometimes it grows, sometimes it wilts away

So I lie upon the bed, look at the stars

So many lives and movements of the souls

Turn off the light

Say good night, say good night

Tom Rosenthal Dabilo

Took me down to the lovely place

You said this is where I go

Took me down to the lovely place

You said this is where I go

My hearts not quite in this race

I want it all to be slow

Don’t you feel the time has come for you to see the light

Don’t you feel the time has come for you to see the light

Oooooooo dabilo oooo dabilooooooooo

Bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum …

Tom Rosenthal Borrowing

Hey you on the lonely roads

Hey you in the morning bright

I’ve only borrowed you

Hey you who cannot talk

Hey you so close to sleep

You only borrowed me

Hey you with the crying eyes

Hey there on the softest sea

You’ve only borrowed me

Hey you in the bath of sky

Hey you in the kitchen light

I’ve only borrowed you

Hey you in the great beyond

Hey you who will not be gone

I’ve only borrowed you

Hey you by the train window

Hey you in the darkest room

I’ve only borrowed you

Tom Rosenthal Take Your Guess

I didn’t walk how you said I should walk

I walk how I do walk, and that’s fine

I didn’t go how you said it would go

It went how it did go, and that’s fine

I look out the window somedays

I see a million ways and that’s fine

I didn’t dance how I wanted to dance

I did a bit of prance and that’s fine

Take your guess, spurious at best, can’t you see its all just chaos

I breathe in and then I breathe out

I’ve got a trillion doubts and that’s fine

I took a road that wasn’t but it was something

I chose and that’s fine

Take your guess, spurious at best, can’t you see its all just chaos

Take your guess, spurious at best, can’t you see its all just chaos

I didn’t go how you said it would go

It went how it did go, and that’s fine

Take your guess, spurious at best

Can’t you see its all just chaos

Tom Rosenthal Oh No Pedro

He doesn’t know what to do with his plans

All the thoughts keep him rolling in the night

He doesn’t know what to do with his hands

They’re just always sticking out like a knife

He’s lost his bag, oh no

Where was the last place you saw it, Pedro?

Pedro’s fallen in love

He’s lost all his heart to her

His love found another love

The lost words of a whisperer

He’s lost his heart, oh no

Where was the last place you saw it, Pedro?

Oh where was the last place you saw it, Pedro?

Oh no Pedro, it’s gone all wrong

But it’s alright, we’re all in this song

Oh no Pedro, it’s gone all wrong

But it’s alright, we’re all in this song

He doesn’t know what to do with his words

How to send them from the brain to the mouth

What order does he put them in?

Which ones does he just leave out?

He’s lost his gods, oh no

When was the last time you saw them, Pedro?

Oh where was the last place you saw them, Pedro?

Oh no Pedro, it’s gone all wrong

But it’s alright, we’re all in this song

Oh no Pedro, it’s gone all wrong

But it’s alright, we’re all in this song

Tom Rosenthal Going To Be Wonderful

I heard you say, meet you in the long grass

Something good at long last, and we’re away

Next to me, found you by the old tree, something we can both see

And we’re away

Oh let’s run away and not know where we’re going to

Let’s go for today and it’s all going to be wonderful

Oh oh oh oh

Far away, find us in the future, something in your nature

And we’re away

What d’you say, meet you by the seaside, somewhere we can both hide

And we’re away

Oh let’s run away and not know where we’re going to

Let’s go for today and it’s all going to be wonderful

Oh let’s run away and not know where we’re going to

Let’s go for today and it’s all going to be fine

Tom Rosenthal We Can Always Come Back

We can always come back

Said the mum to the boy

On the beach, was a ploy

And the boy knew

Her words were only words

We were on the beach too

A mother and the girls

At the start of the world

And I was there too

Taking pictures of us all

But I don’t remember pictures

Though I have them to hand

I remember the sand

On your face though

And the shivering from the sea

Carried on a shoulder

Still in a towel

And I still don’t know how

We made it

And I think I’ll never know

Happiness is action

At the end of the day

There was nothing to say

But we all knew

That sleep would be well

You can’t preserve the moments

They move with the air

To the gods of nowhere

But we were all there

And it’s good enough for me

Tom Rosenthal I Want You In My Dreams

Oh, I ain’t seen nothing like this before in my life

Oh, I ain’t seen nothing like this before in my life

Oh, I ain’t seen nothing like this before in my life

Hold me close, I need you so

I want you in my dreams

Hold me close, I need you so

I want you in my dreams

You’ll see I’ve come a long way for you, my love

You’ll see I’ve come a long way for you, my love

You’ll see I’ve come a long way for you, my love

You’ll see I’ve come a long way with you, my love
