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

Tom Rosenthal Bootylicious

Kelly, can you handle this?

Michelle, can you handle this?

Beyoncé, can you handle this?

I don’t think you can handle this

Barely move, ’cause we’ve arrived

Looking sexy, looking fly

Baddest chick, chick inside

DJ Gem tonight

Spotted me, attentive thing

There you are, come on baby

Don’t you wanna dance with me?

Dance with me tonight

You gotta do much better

If you gonna dance with me tonight

You gotta work your jelly

If you gonna dance with me tonight

Read my lips carefully and if you like what you see

Move, groove, prove you can hang with me

By the looks I got you shook up and scared of me

I don’t think you’re ready, I don’t think you’re ready

I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly

I don’t think you’re ready for this

I don’t think you’re ready for this

‘Cause my body’s too bootylicious for ya, babe

‘Cause my body’s too bootylicious for ya, babe

‘Cause my body’s too bootylicious for ya, babe

‘Cause my body’s too bootylicious for ya, babe

‘Cause my body’s too bootylicious for ya, babe

All the worlds a mess and it always has been

But I hope for better for you and me

All the worlds a mess and it always has been

But I hope for better for you and me

Tom Rosenthal Soon Goodbye, Now Love

Soon goodbye but now love

Soon the air but now hug

Soon a painting in a cave

Draw the oceans, make a wave

I know nothing more than you

Soon the snow but now us

Soon the toast and the crust

Once the lights go out you’ll see

That the heart moves cleverly

And you are never far from home

Touch the key, hope it stays

The piano unplayed

Never found a home

Close to rest but now fight

Close to sleep but now sight

Good news does not exist

Hold your dearest, make a fist

Touch everything you can

Soon a painting in a cave

Draw the oceans, make a wave

I know nothing more than you

Tom Rosenthal What’s Getting You Down, James?

You ask me for my name

But not who I am

What would I like?

Happiness, no whipped cream, and a purpose

What’s getting you down, James?

What’s getting you down?

I don’t know who you are

But I know your, I know your, I know your name

Get a coffee for the road

Get a coffee for the train

Get a coffee real quick before we leave for outer space

And when we finally reach those pearly gates

I say hello to God… and he asks me for my name

Solomon steps out for a coffee

Stayed up all night crying softly

Rachel needs a little pick me up

She runs down the road and is hit by luck

Abbi’s a nurse and you won’t see her worries

Liquified inside that coffee

You ask me for my name

But not how I am

What would I like?

Big love, big hugs, sunsets, and a miracle

What’s getting you down, James?

What’s getting you down?

I don’t know who you are

But I know your, I know your, I know your name

Get a coffee for the dead

Get a coffee for the pain

Get a coffee real quick before we leave for outer space

And when we finally reach those funny gates

I say hello to Rob, and he asks me for my name

Tom Rosenthal I’m Yohan Blake

In a little place

With the human race

One of them, said to me.

I’m looking for my life

I’m Johan Blake,

Always second place.

Mr Bolt said to me

‘its time to get some moves

My mother told me so

and now I’ve got to go

Got to find me a face

Have you seen my wife

I’m looking for my life

Tom Rosenthal Have We Met Before?

Are you thinking?

Is she close?

Do you struggle with umbrellas?

Are you leaving?

Are you home?

Have you timed this badly?

Have we met before?

Are you staying?

Did you fall?

Can you count to ten in German?

Can you whisper?

Can you lie?

Did you design your own website?

Have we met before?

Are you sleeping?

Are you wise?

What can you see from your window?

Are you hungry?

Are you calm?

Are you on a great adventure?

Have we met before?

Are you reading?

Did you choose?

Can you see into the future?

Are you listening?

Are you scared?

Will you know it when you see it?

Have we met before?

Tom Rosenthal The Meaninglessness Of Numbers

I couldn’t count the lines upon your face, left no trace, the moment’s gone

I couldn’t count the steps that it took, and all the moves that led to you

That’s the meaninglessness of numbers to me

The ones the twos the threes, fly with the breeze, amount to none, infinity plus one

The figures of the news, the boundless blues, a secret lies in every soul

That’s the meaninglessness of numbers to me

I couldn’t count the who’s, the how’s, the wheres, the glances shared, the blinking eye

Oh the morning trains, the midnight pains, all add up to make a life

That’s the meaninglessness of numbers to me

I couldn’t count the times, the wines, the names, oh life is not a numbers game

Give me a million or give me one, I do not care, I only care that it begun

That’s the meaninglessness of numbers to me

That’s the meaninglessness of numbers to me
