Blue Train 02:14
Meet me in the morning when you've thought things through, Knowing you, you're walking on fire with wooden shoes And it's all yours - if you want it But it's mine until then It's all yours - if you want it Meet me in the morning when you've thought things through Knowing you, you jumped on a train of thought straight to the blue

Ronda 03:30
Rolling through the hills in a black box on wheels The sun shines through the night and my skin peels to another day No phones, no emails, just good music in my ears And I'm feeling a strong sense of the road It feels like I've got my own metronome I said I, I meant well to everyone it seems but myself And my best was nowhere near good enough, Now I'm recycling blood cells And I need more time, I need more time alone The last time I met myself was too long ago Every sight's a constant flirt To the ideals I held in the past and everything I hope for my future nostalgia Carving out the reasons to hold on It's like mining for diamonds in Sierra Leone Ah we could be rich by the time we're done with it I said I, I meant well to everyone it seems but myself And my best was nowhere near good enough, Now I'm recycling blood cells And I need more time, I need more time alone The last time I met myself was too long ago I said man, don't go You leave now and you'll never know

Back to school with so much learnt From the summer holiday when my lungs got burnt Back in the classroom learning PI all the time Yes yes teacher 3.14159 Coming to borrow some information from the best girl in class Exam is tomorrow and my inclination is that I'll scrape a pass Back in the classroom where time doesn't pass Unlike those holiday's in the south of France Learning to kiss on a sticky breeze Our backs against the walls of cold concrete Coming to borrow some information about the things you like Bouquet of flowers on promotion, I didn't think twice Oh the morning has come back again Rudely awoken by my alarm with no repentance People always say that when you look back Your school days will be the best one's you ever had But that's not true, I never liked school A young man shouldn't be entwined in too many rules Coming to borrow some information from the best girl in class Exam is tomorrow and my inclination is that I'll scrape a pass Oh the morning has come back again Rudely awoken by my alarm with no repentance

Wax 03:04
Hope I don't always run away From someone I haven't met yet Hope I'll always find my way back home To the one I've loved from the first day Brick by brick, we build the buildings From the sewer to the sky And when we're gone they will remain the same Oblivious to the passing of time You come 'round here like you own the place But oh my friend, you don't even own your own name And all your harmonies have gone all dissonant Scrape the wax off your shoulder And light that fire in your eyes And we must live with the notion That one day we all will die And when you're approaching your final line You take a deep breath and watch your life flash behind your eyes And all your harmonies have gone all dissonant Hope I don't always run away From someone I haven't met yet Hope I'll always

Maria 04:23
I didn't know 'till I was out, outside looking in I was a wild child, always offside Oh my eyes always bigger than my brain Just as welcome as the British summer rain Well that was all just a daydream I was floating down John Lennon stream Oh Maria, it's all in your head Oh give me one more chance, even though I'll need ten Well I wrote you this love song Even though I know that it's so wrong And now Im further out, can hardly see the bay Just like a grain of sand, under the heavy waves Well I was grabbed by the scruff of the neck by lust Swiftly knocking down all of our long built trust but now That was all just a memory Some romantic tale by a sailor lost at sea Oh Maria, it's all in your head Oh give me one more chance, even though I'll need ten Well I wrote you this love song Even though I know that it's so wrong It was seductively tamed, the snake still had the urge To slip out of it's cage, oh I lost my nerve I always thought I was the player of the game but now I'll endlessly loose because of that retched mistake but now Well that was all just a daydream I was floating down John Lennon stream Oh Maria, it's all in your head Oh give me one more chance, even though I'll need ten Well I wrote you this love song Even though I know that it's so wrong Oh Maria, it's all in your head Oh give me one more chance, even though I'll need ten

Rescue Plane 03:30
Well he's got the morning glory But She's one thousand two hundred and one - miles away And by the time she gets here It's gonna be another sad story He misses the smell of his clothes When they were washed by her And she misses the smell of his clothes When they weren't washed at all Now they're at war with their distance Right, back, left and forward they don't know But one must step back into reality One's gotta go Rescue planes crash too Then you need a rescue plane for the rescue plane rescue That was the problem with those two They would always break before the breakthrough All these things you never really wanted Always seem to come to be Are now all that you see And all these things you never really wanted Always seem to come to be Now they're all that you see
8.
Mary 04:07
As you drag your feet through the swamp of your home You realise you're happiest left alone, Some time to kick up your feet and realise what's wrong Some time to chew your thoughts down to the bone All the money you said you saved Working those hours on the minimum wage You saved your coins like nuts in the winter but, You never turned from a squirrel to a sparrow when Spring came Are you coming down? I said Mary, Mary you're always so sad I said Mary, this is the best life you'll ever have As you comb through the knots of your routine Taking steps forward to where you've already been Oh you drag your hips to the beats of 'Billie Jean' But you dance like a rusty machine All the money you said you saved Working those hours on the minimum wage You saved your coins like nuts in the winter but, You never turned from a squirrel to a sparrow when Spring came Are you coming down? I said Mary, Mary you're always so sad I said Mary, this is the best life you'll ever have And around and around and around we go And around and around and around we go

Olympics 03:42
A million thoughts run down the racetrack of your mind But no one's winning or loosing this time And now your pillow is the chosen country to host The next Olympics but there's no golden medal I'm not gonna do what you want me to do Cause that would just be wrong The simple truths are hard to come by So I hold them strong And it's the sacred hours of deep sleep dreaming When you come to life changing conclusions you forget In the morning you're none the wiser to what you saw When you had your eyes shut and you opened the door of your mind And it's not easy to strike a balance between Reality and what we always dream Don't tell me it's all just hippy bullshit cause it's not It's more real than the numbers in your stock market I'm not gonna do what you want me to do Cause that would just be wrong The simple truth is hard to come by So I hold it strong And it's the sacred hours of deep sleep dreaming When you come to life changing conclusions you forget In the morning you're none the wiser to what you saw When you had your eyes shut and you opened the door of your mind And that's when I go 'Hey, how are you?' You've got your dreams and I've got mine too Thirty years of sleep And we don't remember what we dream

India 03:09
Well wouldn't life be the most juicy cherry tree If every winter we swapped hemisphere Summer all year round, no winter blues to be found Even in the deepest, darkest shade Said you, you're waiting for the seasons to change Said I might fly to India instead You can rejoice in the fact your bank account's still intact But my bucket list is getting light Winter is too heavy for a creature like me, Vitamin D is paramount Said you, you're waiting for the seasons to change Said I might fly to Argentina instead Well my heart beats best with a swift blow to the chest While shouting out 'Jeronimo!' Not the American Indian but my Father in turn Who's getting old but still younger than his son Said you, you're waiting for the seasons to change Said I might fly to Kenya instead His travels inspired me to escape my country And taste the tarmac Now I'm shaking like a leaf in the ferocious breeze We all seem to call life
11.
Tom Tom 04:16
Why don't you tell your Tom Tom to take you to a Blue Sky? Eating up all the tarmac of the M25 Oh she's the queen of my taxidermy little animal The kind of beast that never sleeps when she's on her own Why don't you tell your Tom Tom to take you to a hillside? Where the peaks puncture the clouds and the moon shines crazy bright Oh you can see the water slipping down those green mountains Only later to be drunk by a man from a concrete fountain Don't loose your opportunity to finally set yourself free Don't loose opportunity to finally set yourself free To be where you want to be, to be who you want to be And now your clever Tom Tom has run out of battery Back to the old school trips in the car with the dogs and the maps and your family Sometimes the best times are had when you get a little bit lost When you don't know who you're gonna meet at the next pit stop Don't loose your opportunity to finally set yourself free Don't loose your opportunity, all these simple things with their intricacies I wanna be free

Sleepwalk 03:30
People always need change, When it's around the corner they always refrain From taking on that 90 degree angle Cause in every angle lies a big life gamble When I met you you weren't so tired, so tired of your head, You weren't so quiet, when there were things to be said But I'm not gonna run, I'm not gonna run when I can sleep, I can sleepwalk into the deepest sea One day you'll awake a new person Something happened in your sleep, an unteachable lesson And you might go on through life as if it never happened But all along your brain juices are fully in motion When I met you you weren't so tired, so tired of your head, You weren't so quiet, when there were things to be said But I'm not gonna run, I'm not gonna run when I can sleep, I can sleepwalk into the deepest sea I can sleepwalk, I can sleepwalk
13.
Come a little closer and listen what I say I've got some words down, they're etched in my brain They're not fit for consumption but Im not trying to sell them anyway I was only hoping for something anything Come a little closer but dont talk too loud I've got a microphone and I'll blow you out I'm not fit for consumption but I'm not trying to sell myself to you I was only hoping for something anything Well you you just keep on streaming the same old song I was only hoping for something so much better

about

TIME FOR T Lisbon, Portugal

Described as somewhere between Bob Dylan and Fela Kuti, Time for T have always been difficult to categorise. This might be due to the eclectic backgrounds of the band (England, Portugal, Brazil and Spain) and the nomadic nature of it's members.

One could say their music consists of pensive folk songs sugarcoated in sunny melodies and groovy rhythms.
