Living The Dream

Featured here are the lyrics from my first Debut Album – Living The Dream. The songs are inspired from a childhood growing up on the West Coast of South Australia, along the Port Lincoln, Venus Bay and Streaky Bay coastlines. I played guitar from the age of six. My childhood was Living the Dream – growing up, friends, family, great times and amazing memories that will last a lifetime. You can catch me ‘Live’ at a venue near you.

LIVING THE DREAM

L O U I S . F U L L E R

LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

I used to ride pas the old church, every morning when I went to school.

I used to wait out the front of the school, every day when the day was done.

Wet suits and surfboards in the back of the ute with a 40 minute drive ahead.

 

Brother, father and me in the front.

Whilst the old man puts on Mark Knoffler,

Sultans of Swing, plays load competing.

With the sound of the Unte on the Dirt Road.

Driving over sand dunes on a two wheel track.

Anxiously hoping the surf will be epic.

Dusty and warm, we pull up to the Beach.

The warm northerly wind blowing on our backs.

 

I was young back then, never thought that these days would ever end.

Living on the coast, I never dreamt that I would be where I am today.

Those were the days that made me today, and doing what I love.

Living the Dream, finding the stream and letting it flow with no means.

 

Clean and crisp, watching the sets roll in.

Excited and eager to get out there.

We strip down, put our wetsuits on.

And then I was up the old twin fin.

I’m surfing on a board that the old man used to ride.

Back when he was a teenager.

He’s on a mini Mal and my Brother’s on a six foot pintale.

That he just got from Gravelle.

Paddling out quickly, trying to warm up.

Until my arms start to fatigue.

Surfing all afternoon and taking a moment to watch the sun disappear into the ocean.

 

I was young back then, never thought that these days would ever end.

Living on the coast, I never dreamt that I would be where I am today.

Those were the days that made me today, and doing what I love.

Living the Dream, finding the stream and letting it flow with no means.

TOOK YOU FOR GRANTED

LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

For how long this trip will be, it will,

Never satisfied my destiny,

For how many hours in a week,

That’s the way its gonna be,

My daddy always told me,

Never get in front of your own body,

Then I started to realise,

Everybody else and you not me,

 

C H O R U S

 

I’ve been such a coward,

I’ve done a lot of things wrong,

I never listened to you,

Or even what you had to say,

Now I regret it so much,

For the pain I gave you,

You always stood beside me,

Just like the way you used too,

I’m sorry could you please forgive me now.

 

I never cared what people said,

I just thought they were joking around,

Why did I always used to be,

Such an idiot and not me,

 

C H O R U S

 

I’ve been such a coward,

I’ve done a lot of things wrong,

I never listened to you,

Or even what you had to say,

Now I regret it so much,

For the pain I gave you,

You always stood beside me,

Just like the way you used too,

I’m sorry could you please forgive me now

 

Why did I always used to be,

Such an idiot and not me,

You were always there for me,

(But I took you for granted x8)

 

FINE

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

Every time I see you

Makes a shiver down my spine,

You hurt me so bad

Just like the other times,

Every time I see you,

You make me feel so cruel,

Why do you keep coming around here,

Like you’ve done before,

Chorus

You were so fine,

In your time,

Bup bup dup bup bup bup da da da da da da

Now time has gone,

And you’re just another lonely soul, that’s right

 

You walk so fine and talk smooth too,

Your actions are high

But you’re all but true,

Now you have to see,

What you’ve done to me,

Why don’t you understand,

That you don’t belong to me,

 

You were so fine,

In your time,

Bup bup dup bup bup bup da da da da da da

Now time has gone,

And you’re just another lonely soul,

Just another lonely soul, yeah

 

You were so mean,

Oh yes I know,

Why didn’t you understand,

That you never belong to me

you never belong to me

you never belong to me

you never belong to me

 

You were so fine,

In your time,

Bup bup dup bup bup bup da da da da da da

Now time has gone,

And you’re just another lonely soul

And you’re just another lonely soul

And you’re just another lonely soul

 

FADE AWAY

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

I’ve seen the brightest part of the day,

And the darkest corners in the night,

That’s right.

It doesn’t take much to be on both of those,

You can be on the biggest high

And then just drop to a low,

 

Chorus

It feels like nothing can go right,

And it feels like you wanna die,

You can’t get out of this hole,

You’ve lost sight of all of your goals,

You don’t want to keep battling it on,

It’s been hurting you for too fucking long,

So all you want to do is fade away.

 

It seems like nothing matters and you are invincible,

Then in a split second you find that you crumble,

Why this is so I really don’t know

All I know is when you’re done there

You just got to keep fighting out.

 

C H O R U S . R E P E A T X 2

 

Fade away, fade away, fade away, fade away, fade away, fade away,

Fade away, fade away, fade away, fade away

 

You only get back what you put in,

Something’s holding you back you gotta find that and then begin

You got to keep hanging on and get through the tough times,

To where you belong,

 

 

C H O R U S . R E P E A T X 2

 

 

WHAT I'D GIVE

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

I look out my window,

I look out to sea.

I look at the sun rising,

(but you’re all I can see x2)

 

I drive past your old house,

And I wave to your mumma.

She’s sitting on the front porch,

(but you’re all I can see x3)

 

Oh what I’d give,

For one more day with you.

For one more day,

Day with you,

Oh what I’d give.

 

He only takes the best x5

 

Oh what I’d give,

For one more day with you.

For one more day

Day with you,

oh what I’d give

 

Oh what I’d give,

For one more day with you

For one more day

Day with you.

VENUS BAY

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

And I’m walking to the look out,

My legs are aching so badly,

It’s 5.45 I feel so alive

As I gaze at the sunrise,

It’s the first day of January and I’m feeling a little cold,

I’m looking over the ocean as I think this world is so old,

 

There’s a place where I go,

All alone to be free,

Nothing beats my home,

Nothing, nothing beats my home,

My only home.

Had no sleep,

I got a stubby in my hand,

I’m watching the dolphins surfing better than man.

You can see the mist

Climbing up and over the cliffs,

As I sit hear and smoke a spliff.

The rocks have their own personality,

As the night becomes dawn.

It’s the best time of the day,

To see all these colours transform.

 

There’s a place where I go,

All alone to be free,

Nothing beats my home,

Nothing, nothing beats my home,

My only home.

 

I feel the salt air hit my face,

As the sea breeze comes in soft.

You can smell it from a mile away

While I’m sitting here looking over Venus bay.

We’ve just driven through the sand dunes

And the suby make it until the end,

The coolants over flowing, the temp guage is high

Looks like we’re gonna be stuck here for a while.

 

We grab the board out the back

And put the old wetties on,

Feel the cold water hit our face

As we paddle out at this beautiful place.

 

I’ve never seen the water so crystal clear

As I duck dive through a wave I feel the pressure in my ears,

Surfing wave after wave after wave,

It’s the way it goes when you’re down at the bay.                                                      

 

There’s a place where I go,

All alone to be free,

Nothing beats my home,

Nothing, nothing beats my home,

My only home.

 

Wake up with a thumping headache

After a long night on the pale ale,

Playing songs and getting pissed with the crew

I drank way too much, it just what we do.

Walk over to the general store,

Get pleasantly greeted by Ross and Pam,

Go to the counter and order a feed

They say hello, give me the paper and I have a read.

 

There’s a place where I go,

All alone to be free,

Nothing beats my home,

Nothing, nothing beats my home,

My only home.

 

I feel so warm and safe,

It’s my home my only place,

There’s Nothings better to say,

Than ripping a scab off a beer at Venus bay.

 

 

BELIEVE

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

When you’ve seen the things that I have seen,

You’ll still believe,

You’ll still believe.
This old world still might be a dream
You’ll still believe,

You’ll still believe.

We cry like Angels and weep like rain,
Never showing emotion nor baring pain,

Nor baring pain.

We live like kings,

Make the most of our money,
Laugh at all things she’s so funny,
This world is so cold

This world is so, so cold.

We cry like Angels and weep like rain,
Never showing emotion nor baring pain.

We walk the same walk,

And sing the same old song,
In a world like mine we all get along,
When you’ve seen the things that I have seen,

You’ll still believe,

You’ll still believe.

My world is not real

It’s just a dream
My world is not real

It’s just a dream

But you still can believe, can believe

But you still can believe, can believe

But you still can believe, can believe

But you still can believe, can believe

You can believe

We cry like Angels and weep like rain,
Never showing emotion nor baring pain,

Nor baring pain.

 

We cry like Angels and weep like rain,
Never showing emotion nor baring pain

Nor baring pain.

 

 

 

 

LOVE YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

There she goes again,

I’ve left her at the door,

She’s so beautiful I can only adore.

The way she looks at me,

The way she stares so deep.

It’s only time that stands between us so let us not weep.

I love you for who are

I love you for who are

And she’s my babe

When we are apart

The feelings are so strong,

Bringing us together like the rhythm in this song,

I get so lonely when you’re far away,

I get so empty when you’re miles away,

I get so scared when you’re away,

But when you come home your here to stay,

I love you for who you are,

I love you for who you are.

And she’s my babe,

And she’s my babe

And she’s my babe,

And she’s my babe.

You are the only one for me

And I am the only one for you,

When we get together how our feelings become so true.

Let me hold you tight,

Let me make this feel just right,

Let me take you for a ride and keep you cuming throughout the night.

I love you for who you are,

I love you for who you are

And she’s my babe ..

 

Now that we are to together,

How our love is going to last forever.

I don’t want you to worry my babe

Coz I’m going be there for you every night and day.

Every night and day I’m gonna be there for you

Every night and day I’m gonna be there for you.

Every night and day I’m gonna be there for you

Every night and day im gonna be there.

 

I love you for who you are,

I love you for who you are

And she’s my babe.

And she’s my babe.

And she’s my babe.

And she’s my babe.

And she’s my babe.

THINGS I'VE SEEN

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

 

When you’ve seen the things that I have seen,

You still believe,

In the things that I can only dream tonight,

When you feel the things I feel

When you dream the things I dream.

When you hear the things I hear,

You will fear.

Then I’ll come crawling back,

Trying to get me to do just that.

 

But I say, I won’t and I never will again,

I’ve been there before and that’s enough for me.

When you’ve been scared do you feel the things that I do feel?

You must have something to enjoy that is not real

 

When you’ve seen the things have gone my way,

You still believe, you still believe.

I get stuck and I don’t know what to say to you,

Now that I can go back home,

I don’t mind when I’m alone.

 

When you feel the things I feel you will start to believe,

Whenever you want where ever you want,

That is the dream

I’m dreaming,

I’m dreaming,

I’m dreaming,

I’m dreaming,

‘m dreaming.

 

When you’ve been scared do you feel the things that I do feel?

You must have something to enjoy that is not real.

 

ABRACADABRA

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

Early bird catches the worm,

Slow snail enjoy that fern,

Stray cat catch that fish,

Lost girl make a wish,

The days go slow the night fly by,

Friends money music, oh so high,

Nothing wrongs, but nothings right,

She wants things better, too weak to fight,

 

Abracadabra,

Magical,

There she goes,

There she gone.

 

You wanna fly but you don’t wanna fall,

Like trying to run before learning to crawl,

Kattie come back, come back home,

You’ve been gone,

You’ve been gone so long.

 

Take things fast get there first,

Take things slow get rewards,

It’s the way the cycle goes,

Only help she got to know.

 

Abracadabra,

Magical,

There she goes,

There she gone.

 

You wanna fly but you don’t wanna fall,

Like trying to run before learning to crawl,

Kattie come back, come back home,

You’ve been gone,

You’ve been gone so long.

 

You wanna fly but you don’t wont wanna fall,

Like trying to run before learning to crawl,

Kattie come back, come back home,

You’ve been gone,

You’ve been gone so long.

 

Yeah ..

 

Early bird catches the worm,

Slow snail enjoy that fern

Stray cat catch that fish,

Lost girl make a wish.

ALL I CAN SAY

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

There’s this guy I know and he likes a little fun,

He used to live near the sea and he is always on the run,

He used to be a great guy,

Then he moved to the city,

Where he got trapped inside,

He started up drinking and doing the drugs,

His girlfriend left him and that’s where he was fucked.

He lost his job and was on the dole,

Stealing money from everywhere that’s where he got low.

 

Chorus

All I can say is don’t do it again,

Because if you keep going, don’t expect anything.

 

He was getting old and he’d fucked up his life,

He had to start again and he was already 35,

So he went back home back to the country,

He loved that place where he had all of those memories,

 

And then one day he went for a surf

On his 6’5ÔÇØ and he felt so alive,

The only problem was he was in debt,

To those drug dealers even though he had stopped it.

 

Chorus

 

But the dealers wouldn’t stop,

I’m not surprised,

He owed a lot of money,

And I’m not sure if he survived,

But until this day,

He was a great friend,

The only problem was,

That he gave in.

 

 

MY LITTLE BIRDIE

L O U I S . F U L L E R

L . Y . R . I . C . S
LYRICS . MUSIC BY LOUIS FULLER

My little birdie once told me

That I can sing my way through life and things will be fine,

And I sang hard and I sang loud,

I sang to you and I sang proud

And I can sing high, and I can sing low,

I can sing to you and watch you grow,

I will sing until I can’t sing no more,

I’ll sing through love and sing through war.

Life had picked me up and slapped me down,

Dragged me through the ocean where I nearly drowned,

Giving me ambitions, dreams and feeling of hope,

Then it unravelled me like threads of rope,

And I can sing high, and I can sing low,

I can sing to you and watch you grow,

I will sing until I can’t sing no more,

I’ll sing through love and sing through war.

My little birdie once told me

That I can sing my way through life and things will be fine,

Now my little birdie has flown away,

I don’t need my little birdie to watch me play,

Birdie made me wise, birdie made me strong,

I don’t need my little birdie to play this song

And I can sing high, and I can sing low,

I can sing to you and watch you grow,

I will sing until I can’t sing no more,

I’ll sing through love and sing through war.

And I can sing high, and I can sing low,

I can sing to you and watch you grow,

I will sing until I can’t sing no more,

I’ll sing through love and sing through war.
