Track Name: Strangers Love
Strangers Love - Tenderfoot
Lyrics © John Vella 2010

You say you want it all
but the truth of it is what you want is so small and
you say you've never had enough
but I figure you know just what it's about

'cause you've been there before and you never seem to have enough
yeah you've been there before and I've never seen you believe

You say that dreams die hard
well I saw Inception, was a work of art
now I wanna know where I should start
wanna make reality my path

‘cause I been there before and I never like where I end up
yeah I been there before and I've never seen you believe

And I wanna know
Can strangers love like
can strangers love like this oh
Can strangers love like
can strangers love like this oh
I wanna know

You say you want it all
but I figure you know just who's to blame
and I don't wanna know if this heart can love

‘cause every time I try is when I get fucked up
yeah every time I try is when I get fucked up

Yeah we've been there before and I never like where I end up
Yeah we've been there before but I've never seen you believe.

And I wanna know
Can strangers love like
can strangers love like this oh
Can strangers love like
can strangers love like this oh
I wanna know
Track Name: The Scenery
The Scenery - Tenderfoot
Lyrics © John Vella 2013

She lit up, the scenery
And everything, moved in slow motion

I love it how you call my name
I love it how you walk that way

I go out, just to see her smile
And watching her sleep, is my lullaby

I love it how you call my name
It kills me when you walk away

Baby, I would give anything
If you’d call on me, if you’d call on me
Lately, I’ve been a mess of dreams
Won’t you call on me, won’t you call on me, call on me

I go out, all on my own
Trying to see, if another love will grow
The more I try, the less the use
‘Cause nobody, no nobody compares to you

I love it how you call my name
Nobody calls it the same

Baby, I would give anything
If you’d call on me, if you’d call on me
Lately, I’ve been a mess of dreams
Won’t you call on me, won’t you call on me, call on me

I’m not the ocean, I am the storm
And I will be here for you, when everyone else is gone
I’m not the ocean, I am the storm.
And I will remember you, when we are done.

Baby, I would give anything
If you’d call on me, if you’d call on me
‘Cause lately you know that I’ve been a mess of dreams
Won’t you call on me, won’t you call on me, call on me
Baby, I would give anything
If you’d call on me, if you’d call on me
Lately, I’ve been a mess of dreams
Won’t you call on me, won’t you call on me, call on me
Track Name: New Morning
New Morning - Tenderfoot
Lyrics © John Vella 2012

New Morning, comforts my soul
There’s a worlds outside that I’m getting to know
New morning, get up and go
You gotta get away to have a place to call home

This city fills me with a world I’ve never seen
Everywhere I look’s a new horizon it seems
New morning, open your eyes
You gotta get outside

And when I think about it
Yeah I got nothing to say
Don’t wanna talk about it
Just gonna go my way

New Morning, knocks on my door
And with a loving whisper, she calls me forth
New morning, yeah it’s been said before
But this time it’s me, and I ain’t said it before

This misty air it’s like a cloud of dreams
There’s music in my heart again that beats in time with me
New morning, open your eyes
You gotta get outside

And when I think about it
Yeah I got nothing to say
Don’t wanna talk about it
Just gonna go my way

They say this city is the city of dreams and it’s moving me
They say this city is the city of dreams and it’s moving me

Track Name: The Balcony Tale
The Balcony Tale – Tenderfoot
Lyrics © John Vella 2013

This is a story of two people on a balcony
Who once had a love affair, without any clarity
She sits there, with her pride and her pain
And he sits there telling himself that he’s right yet again

This is a story about cause and effect
About how a love can turn to loveless
About how those memories and photographs no longer mean a thing
But I’m not one of those people who say I’d never change anything

Once upon a time, in a far away land
There were about 3 weeks that might as well have been heaven
Where every little feeling seemed to fall into place
And he would chase that there feeling for the rest of his days

But all the love is gone. Come on, be a man about it.
All the love is gone. Come on, be a man about it.
And all, all the love is gone, still don’t know quite what went wrong.

So as the years moved on the sun’s continued to set
And every now and then they would reconnect.
With part of his heart that he would still call her’s
Until that fateful day when he struck that raw nerve

So they sit there and argue about things unsaid
One wanting to save, one wanting to end
He had affected her, more than he knew
And she hated him for things, she could not undo.

5 years is a long time for these young hearts
That had damaged each other as they tore apart
She can’t admit that he was ever there
And he can’t admit that she loved him less

But all the love is gone. Come on, be a man about it.
And all the love is gone. Come on, be a man about it.
And all, all the love is gone. I still don’t know quite what went wrong,
The love is gone. Come on, be a man about it.

All the love is gone. Come on, be a man about it.
All, all the love is gone. I still don’t know quite what went wrong
I want to apologise for things I once said
Just for the chance to be inside your head

You see I wanted so badly to be the one
It’s only now I can see the damage that I’ve done
A better man would have walked away
A better man would have walked away
Track Name: Crazy Suzie
Crazy Suzie - Tenderfoot
Lyrics © John Vella 2013

Crazy Suzie followed me, all the way home
She said “Don’t you want to be alone?”
I never quite understood, what she was aiming at,
I was always better of alone.
She said; “You can still be lonely, when you sleep next to someone.”

I made my way to the drug store, on the corner of my street.
I was looking for a place to eat.
I saw an old man at the bus stop he just looked at me and smiled.
With wisdom in his eyes.
Like he’d seen me here before and he knew, all my alibis’.

Ohh, he leaned across, and into my ear he said;
Ohh, “When everything you do is just a means to an end, who will you count on then?”

Late that night I bumped into, a girl I used to know.
One that really moved me so.
I thought; “Could it be that you and me, could’ve been something more?”
I always wanted something more.
We danced around the truth a while, then she let me go home alone.

Ohh, she leaned on me, and into my ear she said;
Ohh, “When everything you do is just a means to an end, who will you count on then?”

And when I think about it, don’t wanna talk about it.
And when I think about it, don’t wanna talk about it.
Ohh, she leaned on me, and into my ear she said;
Ohh, “When everything you do is just a means to an end, who will you count on then?”

Ohh, “When everything you do is just a means to an end, who will you count on then?”

It’s just a means to an end, who will you count on then?
Track Name: Chasin The Rain
Chasing The Rain - Tenderfoot
Lyrics © John Vella 2013

I will never learn
this much is true
keep running round in circles
keep coming back to you

with all that I've learned
there's not much to show
you'd think by now
at least some things I'd know

I need you so much
so I talk like I don't
the game is all there is
when you use those broken bones
It's all about the rise
followed by the fall
you don't want either
and I want it all

'Cause it's cold outside
When you're chasing the rain
nobody comes for you
when you're chasing your pain
It's cold outside
when you're chasing the rain
nobody comes for you
