Announcement: a comprehensive lyrics collection is coming

... early next year.

It's been a while since I published the last full collection, "the Lot" in 2013, and two supplements, "still there'll be more" early 2015 and "more than meets the ear" early 2017. Since then I have added 57 new song lyrics to my ever growing collection (the last one published right here right now), and rewritten another 19. Therefore, I think, it does make a lot of sense to republish the whole lot together with the added content.

My lyrics are free for all to use - non-commercially. Please note that public performances are considered 'commercial' (think of the beer that is sold, not of the empty hat). But that need not worry you. Should you not be affiliated with a PRO (performing rights organization) I will register the songs for you (you won't receive any royalties, though, as long as you are not a member). The licences are being paid by the concert promoter. Musicians never pay for the songs/lyrics they use. All that you would have to do is hand in your setlist (which is mandatory anyway in most European countries, albeit optional in the US).

A quick one - for elderly singers like myself ;-)

you're too young to be true
I am dead meat to you
I belong in a pine box
I am long overdue

how come we crossed paths
and fell in love at last

you're young
you're immortal
invincible
- for a while

you're so cute and so strong
I don't think I belong
I could be your father
how will we get along

how come we crossed paths
and fell in love at last

you're young
you're immortal
invincible
- for a while

you've made a mess of my life
I'm all over the place
you make the sun shine at night
I may not hold your pace
I wouldn't mind to pass now
in your deadly embrace

you're young
you're immortal
invincible
- for a while
