Rick Hart Melbourne, Australia

Track Name: City Lights
She could see the city lights
From up on the hill, late at night
Tried to keep her but I lost that fight
When I lost my baby to the city lights
She could hear the call of fame
And neon lights lighting up her name
But there’s no denying just who’s to blame
Oh city lights you should be ashamed

For taking my baby away from me
Left me in a state of constants misery
She got out, I’m sure she’s fine
But I’m not certain about this heart of mine
And the hole keeps growing wider day by day
Should have gone but I’m a simple boy
And I know that I would not enjoy
Those city lights shining in my face

Well I heard about those city lights
Long before that dreaded night
I went to bed thinking we’re alright
But she was gone by morning light
Oh city lights why can’t you see
The destruction you have rained on me
‘Cause love is more than a fly by night
Or the seductive call of those city lights

Taking my baby away from me
Left me in a state of constants misery
She got out, I’m sure she’s fine
But I’m not certain about this heart of mine
And the hole keeps growing wider day by day
Should have gone but I’m a simple boy
And I know that I would not enjoy
Those city lights shining in my face
Should have gone but I’m a simple boy
And I know that I would not enjoy
Those city lights shining in my face
Those city lights shining in my face
Those city lights shining in my face
Track Name: Broken Bird
Knew a bird in a rusted cage
Rust that formed with tears of age
Knew a bird in a rusted cage
I hope that she can turn the page
Broken bird in a rusted cage

Knew a bird with a fractured wing
Sat in silence, never said a thing
Knew a bird with a fractured wing
I hope she finds her voice to sing
Broken bird with a fractured wing

Broken bird with a fractured wing
Broken bird with a fractured wing
Let me be there, be your friend
To help you find your voice to sing

Knew a bird too afraid to fly
In her cage every night would cry
Knew a bird too afraid to fly
I hope she finds the strength to try
Broken bird too afraid to fly

Broken bird too afraid to fly
Broken bird too afraid to fly
Let me be there, be your friend
To help you find the strength to try

Knew a bird who for love she yearned
A weathered soul, slowly left to burn
Knew a bird who for love she yearned
I hope in time that bird returns
Broken bird with a loving yearn
Knew a bird with a loving heart
I hope in time her heart restarts
Broken bird with a loving heart
Broken bird with a loving heart
Broken bird with a loving heart
Track Name: She's My Girl
Time has passed and still I feel
She is the one thing in my life so real
She came into my heart and changed my world
I was her man and she was my girl

Photographs in dusty frames
Have traveled through the years of change
Remind me how I felt holding her
When I was her man and she was my girl

And change has come
And years have gone
And time stands still for no one

The three boys we now call our own
Remind me of the love I've known
For twenty-four years she's been my world
I'm still her man and she's my girl
I'm still her man and she's my girl
I'm still her man and she's my girl
