When You’re Gone Away Lyrics&Music ©Brad Spurgeon Capo on first fret with chord shapes of: Em It’s hard to live by the rules C D I set myself long ago It’s hard to do any planning When I don’t know where to go It’s hard to think that anything Can hit this down and low G Bm Em When you’re gone away When you’re gone away When you’re gone away It’s hard to walk the streets at night And look straight out of my eyes It’s hard to appreciate daylight And latch on to my dreams It’s hard to talk of the future When all is black it seems G Bm Em When you’re gone away When you’re gone away When you’re gone away It’s hard to think that anything Will ever glow again It’s hard to agree with the optimist I used to be back then It’s hard to look on the bright side When everything is dark …hey again… It’s hard to live the way I did Seekin’ out that spark BRIDGE Then a flash of perception Hits me from on high I keep on going straight ahead And know that before I die I’ll turn around those deadly Vice grips that you placed Upon my head and heart And somehow you laced With poison and deception And every other thing Under the sun you drained me of I can hear it now the ring ring When you’re gone away When you’re gone away When you’re gone away When you’re gone away

Borderline 03:24
Borderline Lyrics & Music ©Brad Spurgeon Capo third fret G, Em, Am7, d Leaping, jumping, flying so high On the borderline, on the borderline With her rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Bm Em He followed her blindly, she took his sight Followed her right on through the night Down the twisted lanes of love Till he felt blessed from above G etc Walkin’, talkin’, spendin’ so much time On the borderline, on the borderline With her rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Bm Em She showed him secret rooms of her heart Those she took no one else to Then locked him out to make him rot Returning to say that she was true Musical interlude Gsus, Em, Am7, d, etc Ooooh, ooooh, oohhh F(bar chord shape), Em And every time he found the answer She threw something else into his face And every time he felt like a prancer She whipped him back in to his place And every time she said she loved him She disappeared without a trace G, Em, etc Cryin’, sighin’, fallin’ so low From the borderline, from the borderline With her rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Two cycles of the chords with lead and then the below again On the borderline, on the borderline With her rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ….

Memories 04:27
Memories Lyrics&Music ©Brad Spurgeon Chorus G Em I can hear it on the radio Am7 D I can feel it in the airwaves I can see it in my memories I can touch it in my mind G Bm It’s a song that makes time standstill Am7 D It’s a song that makes my heart feel the thrill It’s a song about the times we spent together Watching life go on seemingly forever It is locked in time, like the Grecian Urn It is frozen there, like the Nightingale And it cannot be changed, it cannot be altered now It’s as we left it, lived it, way back then Chorus I can hear it on the radio I can feel it in the airwaves I can see it in my memories I can touch it in my mind It’s a story we wrote each one together It’s a tale we lived out for two No one’s ever going to change the beginning No one’s ever going to rewrite the end (Musical break) And now it’s time for me to turn it off If only for a day or three Then I’ll return to you, yeah, once again And bit by bit, set us free Chorus I can hear it on the radio I can feel it in the airwaves I can see it in my memories I can touch it in my mind

Except Her Heart Lyrics&Music ©Brad Spurgeon A x2 Amaj7 The girl went walkin’ G D dsus4 etc. She told him he was talkin’ And he knew Everything she ever knew She wore her clothes gently Flashed her rings lightly Let down her hair And her bracelets too The lady went off in Another tramp often From place to place And home to home She wore her smile lightly Cooked in style tightly Proffered everything She owned to him Bm Except her heart G Except her heart D Except her heart A Except her heart Bm Except her heart G D A……….. A x2 Amaj7 She drew him in closely Wrapped him up tightly And told him They had to get a move on She pulled him into her Fed him full for them Gave all they needed Or she had for now The stories that she made up If they really were made up They shook him to the soul And he broke right down Then he went and closed off Kept the doors shut tight Locked her right out Cause she gave everything Bm Except her heart G Except her heart D Except her heart A Except her heart Bm Except her heart G D A……….. One day she found She was too old to be As charming as she always Wanted them to see She picked up her bags Threw ‘em on her back And headed down to The railroad track He caught her in his eye As he rolled by Goin’ to the office His heart so dry There was nowhere to go No homes to find No bells to ring Cause she gave everything Bm Except her heart G Except her heart D Except her heart A Except her heart

Let Me Know 03:14
Let Me Know Lyrics&Music ©Brad Spurgeon There’s nothing left to be There’s nothing left to do There’s nothing left to see Except how I can know you You really threw me off it all You really called me out And I don’t know where I’m going You filled me with such doubt You emerged from another culture You came from another space Your dirty blonde hair blowing Back across your face Your age I could not imagine Your heart I could not know Your touch it sent sheet lightning Way down below It only took one handshake For me to feel it all Your smile and mine just melded And you held me in your thrall There was no way back, there was no way I would ever know a thing again But you’ve remained so mysterious I can’t even call you my friend So if you know a way outta here I’d like you to tell me so I’ll take the first indication You really must let me know I’m not the kind to blind myself At least not for so long So let me know as soon as you can If I got you all wrong There’s nothing left to be There’s nothing left to do There’s nothing left to see Except how I can know you There’s nothing left to be There’s nothing left to do There’s nothing left to see Except how I can know you

Not Much in the Mood Lyrics&Music ©Brad Spurgeon I'm not much in the mood for dancin' I'm not much in the mood right now I'm not much in the mood for dancin' I'm not much in the mood right now Chorus My love she's gone away She left me here to stay All by myself, all by myself I'm not much in the mood for talkin' I'm not much in the mood right now I'm not much in the mood for talkin' I'm not much in the mood right now Chorus I'm not much in the mood for anything I'm not much in the mood right now I'm not much in the mood for anything I'm not much in the mood right now Chorus

about

Brad Spurgeon Paris, France

In 2008, I returned to performing music in public after nearly a 30-year break, after several musician friends encouraged me to try some open mics again. I got addicted, and since then I have played in open mics and open jam sessions in dozens of countries and on all continents except Africa (where I did actually once live and play) and Antarctica. ... more
