about

This is Andy Leeks amazing debut album. It’s a bright, likeable collection of songs: the powerful brass and melodic violin will please Dexys fans and Andy’s impassioned vocals offer some poignant, poetic lyrics. While the title track might dig at Dexys’ frontman Kevin Rowland, Leek’s true skill lay in plaintive ballads like “Woolfson Hall”, a tribute to the abode he shared with his girlfriend in Glasgow.

Track Name: Do It For You
Inside every young girls head
are all the rules a young girl fed
I've found someone else instead
someone who emotions there too
Theres no one nicer more gently or considerate
Id love her if she was paralyzed or even illitirate
Track Name: Midnight Music
I hear you enjoy very poor health
Oh dear that's a bit full of wealth
You never could resist a thrill
One day you'll slip the final pill

Midnight Music
Don't Keep me awake anymore
Midnight Music
Don't keep me awake anymore
Midnight Music
You Dont Wake me

Your bluffed by hating everyone
You're so tough
Is your music too good to play
Am I the man you couldn't con
Wil all your bluffs end someday?

Cos I've found its no good
Trying to be clever
Borrowing respect on the never never
Build on solid ground and you'll last forever
Track Name: Insult
Break an egg into a cup
I fall into your body spiraling up
up up where reason is redundant

Break a smile into a frown
I drift into a hour glass spiraling down
down down wondering where the fun went
Track Name: Whats the Problem?
She says that sex is empty
It's not allowed inn the land of plenty
He's impotent
She's indifferent
What's the problem

She says he runs for cover
And underneath he loves to suffer
Fells so guilty pays the penalty
What's the problem?

Can't you play the happy house wife
You've seen it acted so
why not make it your life
What's the problem?

He says he's feeling drowsy
And underneath he's feelin lousy
Says. It's alright
Holds her hand. Tight
What's the problem

Cant you play the happy husband
Her love rebates and her
final demand is
what's the problem
So what is it?
Track Name: Twist in the Dark
Twist in the Dark
My priorities are paradise
