Now and Then

by Antiqcool

“Now & Then” is an album of songs featuring acoustic guitar ensembles, and haunting lyrics, with a sprinkling of electric guitar, cello, harp, harmonica, bass, keyboards and synth, plus the odd drum here and there. I like to paint mental pictures with my songs around themes of love, friendship and life. Each one tells it’s own little story and takes you on an emotional journey, both lyrically and musically. I get my songs into your head, where they will set up camp and lay down roots. Over time you will get to know them, and hopefully, think of them as friends.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I find it quite difficult to describe myself as an artist, and the music I create. Although I tinker with other instruments, I feel most at home playing acoustic or electric guitar, I’ve been playing on and off since I was six years old, so I guess it’s a big part of who I am now. The idea for a song can start with a few words, or a guitar riff. I spend many hours recording basic ideas that sound interesting, then overdubbing other guitar parts, until I hear something that sounds right. If I get Goosebumps, it’s usually a good sign. If you, the listener, play the finished song and get Goosebumps, then I guess I’ve done a good job.
I enjoy the process of creating arrangements for guitar, often a three or four part ensemble with other instruments thrown into the mix to add a little extra colour, and variety. I try to make my songs interesting, but not too complicated. I want people to go away humming the tunes I have created, I love it when people say “I can’t get that song out of my head”. I recommend you stop reading and start listening now, so that you can make up your own mind. Find out more on our website.

SONG LYRICS

GIRL IN A ROOM
There's a girl in a room
And she's growing old too soon
There's a voice in her head
But the words are left unsaid
Getting up falling down
In a sleepy one horse town
For a love that's been a dream so long
To be standing by her side
She could wait all her life
Whatever it takes she'll sacrifice
Every beat of her heart
To be with the one and never part
To be with the one and never part
There's a girl in a room
And she's growing old too soon
There's a voice in her head
But the words are left unsaid
Getting up falling down
In a sleepy one horse town
For a love that's been a dream so long
To be standing by her side
She could wait all her life
Whatever it takes she'll sacrifice
Every beat of her heart
To be with the one and never part
To be with the one and never part
There's a girl in a room
And she's growing old too soon
To be with the one and never part
To be with the one and never part
To be with the one and never part
To be with the one and never part
To be with the one and never part
To be with the one and never part
To be with the one
To be with the one
To be with the one
To be with the one

INSIDE MY LOVE
Inside my love
Got no reason to be fearful of
The gifts I bring
They won’t hurt you they won’t make you sting
There may be tears
But the moments will be few
Outnumbered by the years of peace
And joy
Because you are just a girl and I am just a boy
I know it’s only love
But it may save your life one day
Save your life one day
It’s only love
But it may save your life one day
Save your life one day
Time passes by
And we don’t always see
In the blinking of an eye
That butterfly
Has opened up his wings and is headed for the sky
It’s only love
But it may save your life one day
Save your life one day
It’s only love
But it may save your life one day
Save your life one day
Inside my love
Got no reason to be fearful of
The gifts I bring
They won’t hurt you they won’t make you sting
There may be tears
But the moments will be few
Outnumbered by the years of peace
And joy
Because you are just a girl and I am just a boy
I know it’s only love
But it may save your life one day
Save your life one day
It’s only love
But it may save your life one day
Save your life one day
I know it’s only love
But it may save your life one day
Save your life one day

OH MARY
Oh Mary
Though our love was strong
May I’m moving on
Can you see
Why I feel this way
You won’t ask me to stay
Mary I’ll take you with me
Wherever I go
And Mary you’ll always be
Guiding me I know
You will be waiting
You will be waiting
Burn me a candle watch it glow
Oh Mary
Though our love was strong
May I’m moving on
Can you see
Why I feel this way
You won’t ask me to stay
I see where the heavens touch the sky
A look to remind me
And wonder if God could tell me why
It’s all behind me
But you will be near me
To curse and to cheer me
Always to hear me when I cry
Oh Mary
Though our love was strong
May I’m moving on
Can you see
Why I feel this way
You won’t ask me to stay
Mary I’ll take you with me
Wherever I go
And Mary you’ll always be
Guiding me I know
You will be waiting
You will be waiting
Burn me a candle watch it glow


THAT WAS YESTERDAY
Listen to the wind on a winter’s day
Ride the white horses in the bay
Back into yesterday
Crossing off days in a prison cell
Thinking about how to break my spell
Lonely inside a shell
Calling all my angels down to me
To carry me away and set me free
To be where I long to be
Looking at a road and a big blue sky
Yearning soul you make me sigh
So bad I wanna cry
And I I’m wishing all years away
Crying all my tears away alone for all the time
That I, I won’t ever get back again
Tenderly I remember when you told me you were mine
You were there to hear my confession
Could always teach me a lesson
When I’d been led astray to lose my way
You were there with love and devotion
To fill my heart with emotion
But that was yesterday
I fall to my knees and I pray
I see a black hole I’m inside
Waiting on hope and a rising tide
Fixing to catch me a ride
Take me anywhere that you want to go
Bars and cages are all I know
They tell me you reap what you sew
Every coin in the wishing well
Is weighing me down and it hurts like hell
I ring on the mission bell
To gather people from miles around
But the mission bell it makes no sound
Lost never to be found
And I I’m wishing all years away
Crying all my tears away alone for all the time
That I, I won’t ever get back again
Tenderly I remember when you told me you were mine
You were there to hear my confession
Could always teach me a lesson
When I’d been led astray to lose my way
You were there with love and devotion
To fill my heart with emotion
But that was yesterday
I fall to my knees and I pray
Yearning soul you make me sigh
So bad I wanna cry so bad I wanna cry
Yearning soul you make me sigh
So bad I wanna cry so bad I wanna cry
Yearning soul you make me sigh
So bad I wanna cry so bad I wanna cry
Yearning soul you make me sigh
So bad I wanna cry so bad I wanna cry

ALL THE ARKS ARE FULL
Not bad looking in a suit with a shirt and tie
But I sigh
Cause I lost my job working on a way to survive
I’m on a short list but I’m in smart company woe is me
Funny handshakes as far as the eye can see
On the road I’m on
You’ve given everything you are
But all you have to show so far
Down the road I’m on
Is a healing over deeper scars
There must be more for you it’s written in the stars
Clouds are heavy like lead on the mercury
Telling me
I better find me an ark go sailing over misery
I’m nimble and sharp but looking over my CV worries me
All the arks are full as far as the eye can see
On the road I’m on
You’ve given everything you are
But all you have to show so far
Down the road I’m on
Is a healing over deeper scars
There must be more for you it’s written in the stars
Don’t get me wrong
Don’t want to sing you no loser’s song
Got a roof hanging over my head
Belly full go to sleep in a bed
Don’t get me wrong
Don’t want to sing you no loser’s song
On a journey to me the years roll by how long how long
Car wont’ start grainy picture on my old TV all I see
When I look in the mirror
A stranger looking back at me
I got a bloody nose, fat lip and a swollen eye
And I sigh
She left a note on the table
Have a nice day and goodbye
Living on living on living on charity
Dreaming about how one day it will be over
Lifting a curse to memory
Thinking about thinking about thinking about days to come
Weather is gone your soaking up the sun
Wake up wake up wake up your time is almost done
Not bad looking in a suit with a shirt and tie
But I sigh
Cause I lost my job working on a way to survive
I’m on a short list but I’m in smart company woe is me
Funny handshakes as far as the eye can see
On the road I’m on
You’ve given everything you are
But all you have to show so far
Down the road I’m on
Is a healing over deeper scars
There must be more for you it’s written in the stars
By the fountain coin is in my hand
Many dreams but they’re all made of sand
By the fountain coin is in my hand
Many dreams but they’re all made of sand

BIRDMAN
Ice weighs heavy on my wings tonight
Cold wind blows into my face
And if I could leave
On a summer breeze
I would surely leave this place
I would surely leave this place
All the autumn days have come and gone
Shadows lengthen on the wall
And the mate with I
To the sun would fly
Can no longer hear my call
Can no longer hear my call
I should have left in August or September
But I'm still here now deep into December
And if the song I sing
Fades and dies within
frozen on the air
When she returns
In spring will she remember
All the autumn days have come and gone
Shadows lengthen on the wall
And the mate with I
To the sun would fly
Can no longer hear my call
Can no longer hear my call

LOVE LIGHT
Sleep now your prayers are done
They have not been answered
You're not the only one
God is only human
Don't wait around for him
To wash away your sin
Light up a torch and run
Torches can build a sun.
There's a love light
You can take it anywhere
And make hope out of despair
All you do is share
In a wasteland
Where the broken people go
Only seed they ever sew
Has no freedom to grow
Sleep now your prayers are done
They have not been answered
You're not the only one
God is only human
Don't wait around for him
To wash away your sin
Light up a torch and run
Torches can build a sun.
There's a love light
You can take it anywhere
And make hope out of despair
All you do is share
In a wasteland
Where the broken people go
Only seed they ever sew
Has no freedom to grow
There's a love light
You can take it anywhere
And make hope out of despair
All you do is share
In a wasteland
Where the broken people go
Only seed they ever sew
Has no freedom to grow

HEALING SCARS
Will you sit down next to me
On my doorstep made for two
There’s no moon up in the sky
Got no view to share with you
But if you take a little time
It doesn’t matter where you are
If you sink into the groove
Feel that rhythm healing scars
Oh let it take you to the stars
We can talk about your day
Let me know what’s on your mind
Though it may take an hour or two
But if it helps you to unwind
There’s no place I would rather be
Kick off your shoes and drift away
Don’t try to read so much into
Why I would be this way with you
I’m just a way to get you through

Only human designed to Fail
A string of imperfections tied up in DNA
When you laugh when you cry
Maybe you won’t even know why
A chemical reaction emotion getting you high
Don’t need a reason to celebrate
Get busy living or die
Come on try
Will you sit down next to me
On my doorstep made for two
There’s no moon up in the sky
Got no view to share with you
But if you take a little time
It doesn’t matter where you are
If you sink into the groove
Feel that rhythm healing scars
Oh let it take you to the stars





MONALEA CELESTE
I had a job in a factory
Woke up one day had an epiphany
So this is all I am and will ever be
Carrying all my possessions
I travel up into the mountains alone
No direction my mind would turn to home
What am I doing out here
I could be sat with a pizza and beer
Safe in a bubble with all that I hold dear
Now I’m living in fear
Maybe I made a mistake
Thinking that I had a journey to make
Not an original only a fake
Under pressure I break
Planning a showdown with the demons in my head
The biggest part of me now wishing I was dead
A few words were said
I cling on to life by a thread
Monalea Celeste I found you
In a black and white lie you were yellow green and blue
Monalea Celeste I found you
In a wilderness I had a vision it came true
I don’t know what she saw in me
She took me in and she fed me so I
Felt obliged to say maybe I could stay
She found me work in the gardens
I gathered the fruits of the harvest then snow
Many nights were shared in the fire glow
Talking the hours away
Drinking her wine it was all vin-de-paye
She gave a present to me on Christmas day
Round my neck it would stay
Soon after winter had gone
I bought a ticket it was a return
We lit a candle and showed no concern
The candle would burn
Monalea Celeste I found you
In a black and white lie you were yellow green and blue
Monalea Celeste I found you
In a wilderness I had a vision it came true
Now when
Daydreaming I pen
Messages to her
So glad I knew her
Raise a glass to her
Monalea Celeste I found you
In a black and white lie you were yellow green and blue
Monalea Celeste I found you
In a wilderness I had a vision it came true
Monalea Celeste I found you
In a black and white lie you were yellow green and blue
Monalea Celeste I found you
In a wilderness I had a vision it came true

ALL THESE THINGS
A walk in the rain
The sound of you saying
Whose idea was this we should have gone to Spain
So long ago
But it’s funny you know
I just close my eyes and I’m back there again
The station goodbyes
The tears in your eyes
You on my mind all alone on a train
All these things
They don’t seem like much
But when they’re gone
You have to be strong
And carry on
Oh what a snowman we made
Round a campfire we laughed and we played
Every song found a place in my heart
Take me back take me back to the start
Toast on the grill
Smoke everywhere
Oh what a shame
You’ll never call never call never call my name
Won’t ever be ever be ever be the same
A walk in the rain
The sound of you saying
Whose idea was this we should have gone to Spain
So long ago
But it’s funny you know
I just close my eyes and I’m back there again
The station goodbyes
The tears in your eyes
You on my mind all alone on a train
All these things
They don’t seem like much
But when they’re gone
You have to be strong
And carry on
