So Dangerous


One hell of a lady, drive the men crazy She's dangerous, so dangerous Sassy little lassy, hazard in the backseat Doesn't matter what she do, it always ends in a bruise or two Chorus: In the evenings when we used to laugh and candlesticks would light our baths And music playing soothes our heads and love's returns are made in bed. Finale: The metaphors try hard, to say you've got my heart çause no-one can read you, you allow no-one to read you © Peters 2015




Yet I couldn't sleep


I made promises that I couldn't keep Some were lonely, some were out of reach I made promises that I couldn't reach Silence was so stoney and I was in deep Yet I couldn't sleep, I just couldn't sleep and I couldn't sleep, I just couldn't sleep last night, last night You made promises that were so deep that they would last only for the time it took to sleep and you couldn't tell, if the world slept or was awake And while we snored the promise would break, for goodness sake! You made the promise break. Chorus: And then I was awake Though the world began to shake what is new, what is fake Can I choose the promise that you make? Yet I couldn't sleep, I just couldn't sleep and I couldn't sleep, I just couldn't sleep last night, last night © Peters 2015




Voyager from Over There


There’s a little German café, just tucked into Kilkivan I always stop there, even when life seems so fast. Three of Four hours, Away from my lady Sometimes I’m away the next day. It’s a long way to come for just a day Your love drives me to you, and I must obey! Chorus: I’m a voyager from over there I’ve been here, and I’ve been everywhere long, long, long way down the road to success Here I am at rest, Bridge: and each road leads me to you Each mile makes me smile, as the lines lead me away I’m introduced to another new day. And every breeze sets me free; as the skies lead me astray I fall in love with you once again Sub-Chorus: I’m a Voyager from over there, That’s me, without a care; My baby in Biloela You know what I really need her. Chorus: I’m a voyager from over there I’ve been here, I’ve been everywhere A long, long, long way along the road to success That’s me without a care voyager from over there I’ve been here, I’ve been everywhere A long, long, long way along the road to success That’s me without a care My baby in Biloela You know what I really need her Peters©2016




Such Wonder


I was a Skinny little dreamer, with a normal life Didn’t get to suffer too much Much too young a soul for the world Ordinary life, school days, dearest friends Mohammed, Eddie, Carl, and Bestie Rick Nineteen, first girlfriend, she didn’t stick Uni’ called but I turned my back Not so good when looking back, Highway of jobs, dead-ends, that I befriend(ed). Bridge/lift: The plans I made, the dreams I saw, the memories made At peace with it all, Two marriages, three kids, six broken hearts How to grow a heaven from hell Kind-of thankful, we all ended up quite well. Bridge/lift: The plans I made, the dreams I saw, the memories made At peace with it all, Wedding plans in the spring, no doubt I will sing Happy days are here, no more pain eginning once again at the end. Chorus: Could’ve been a famous engineer, designed rockets and space-like things. Did lots of drawings showed Mum and Dad, proudly put them up on the lounge-room wall, and I showed them all, yes I showed them all, and I felt so tall. Instrumental> Bridge/lift: The plans I made, the dreams I saw, the memories made At peace with it all, it doesn’t faze me at all, but it’s a wonder, such wonder, it’s a wonder, such wonder and it leaves me in awe. Chorus #2 And here I am now a father of three, most beautiful boys, and I’m just me. With my new love and a growing family, and it’s a wonder, such a wonder to me, it’s a wonder, such wonder. I didn’t think I would see, such wonder Finale/Bridge/lift: The plans I made, the dreams I saw, the memories made At peace with it all, it doesn’t faze me at all, but it’s a wonder, such wonder, it’s a wonder, such wonder and it leaves me in awe, such wonder.

In The Distance


In the distance, in the distance I heard the whistle of the train late last night In the distance in the distance Your long hair glinted from the bright city lights User number Betty 365, I know, I know you’re alive Me Billy 99, one car, three dogs, no, to a wife Meet in the flesh, imagined the smile Two fresh smiles, heart’s pounding eyes alive. In the distance, in the distance I heard the whistle of the train late last night In the distance in the distance Your long hair glinted from the bright city lights Lift: We fell in love as people do Though you told me, it’s way too new We know we’ll never part again From that night, we’d not pretend. Chorus: Promises were made that night Promises that broke the morning light And in the distance, in the distance The sun broke the dawn And in the distance, in the distance The peals of love ring on… And in the distance, in the distance The sun broke the dawn And in the distance, in the distance The peals of love ring on… Peters©2017
