Under Your Thumb I don’t know what it’s all about I’ve been there and I still did not find out I don’t know what’s going on Everything that’s going down is staying there too long Everybody says that it’s sappy To want to be happy Cos no-one ever stays that way for long But look what I’ve become I’m under your thumb I’m under your thumb Under your thumb… On the way up it was such a blast How was I to know that it couldn’t last On the way down I could see where I fell from Who would have ever thought it could take so long Everybody says that it’s easy To fall in love believe me That it’s harder to stay that way for long Well look how low I’ve gone I’m under your thumb I’m under your thumb Under your thumb… Everybody says that it’s so easy Yeah they’re gonna fall in love believe me Everybody thinks they’ve found the one But when it comes undone They couldn’t be more wrong I’m under your thumb I’m under your thumb Under your thumb… I’m under your thumb Under your thumb Under your thumb…

Something About Love Every voice Every sound Mouth by mouth Town to town If it's the same in every place Then what divides the human race What spins us and the world around That's saying something The floor is moving away And I can't answer all your questions today I'm disconnected floating free My mind is all outside of me And as I look down from above I hear you say Something about love Something about love Something about love You stay and go You go and stay The only difference is place You say why why I say hey hey What does anybody know? Something about love Something about love

When I’m Down I’m straight and I’m sober I haven’t changed yet but I’m starting to sweat It’s easy to mock me But you ought to know it’s a hard way to go When I’m down… down… down… I’m so turned on and I am disconnected Nothing’s ever surprising always just as expected Nothing hurts me nothing shocks me Unloved and alone in my own comfort zone When I’m down… down… down… So take your bitter medicine It’s just what the doctor ordered So please can you get me some?

The Well Ran Dry Lover lover tell me do whatever’s gotten into you I dont know whats on your mind Lover lover its too easy to say you know what moves me Do you know whats going on in mine? At times I can be cool Then I’m everybody’s first fool It’s all my life Sometimes I wake up clean Go to bed dirty just digging my dream It’s all my life I watched the rope unwind It went down to the bottom but the well was dry… The well ran dry Lover lover you call to me from out across the bitter sea Where I spread my bile Black and cold and thirtsy That’s where I’ll keep my memories Till hell comes back in style At times I can be cool… Copyright © ℗ Greg Williams 2007

What’s The Matter With Me I feel happy what’s the matter with me Could it be that I’m not trying to be what you want me to be There is only one thing I have to do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do That is get away from you And I used to scrape And I used to bow But I have learned Learned my lesson now I will be faithful and I will be true I to me baby Na-na-na-na-na-na-na not to you I’m so tired yeah like you care That place where you’ve gone babe I can’t be there no I can’t be there I’ve been aching I’ve been grieving over you boo-hoo Now I have cried all I’m going to And I used to beg And I used to crawl Ah but you made me Made me that way doll Did you get your kicks seeing me go down I can stand up when you’re na-na-na-na-na-na-na not around And I used to scrape And I used to bow But I have learned Learned my lesson now I will be faithful and I will be true I to me baby Na-na-na-na-na-na-na not to you.

Song of Love Have you seen the stars they're out tonight I never noticed that they were so bright There must be something filling the air I could touch them if I would dare I never thought my head could feel this light The sun comes out at night at her command And suddenly there's streamers and brass bands A big bass drum is pounding inside To the music of a merry-go-ride I never thought that I could get this high Every day I am discovering anew and Everything rings out this song of love to you Every day is like a good dream coming true Every night I write this song of love to you And I can hear it playing in my head all the time it goes around Can you guess the colour of her eyes They're mostly blue but sometimes they surprise Well they could change from violet to grey But that can't change what I got today I never thought that i could feel so fine I never ever thought you could be mine Happy all the time Sun will all always shine Since you have been mine Copyright © ℗ Greg Williams/Steve Housden 1999

I Need Your Love I need your love But I don't need it all that much So you can break my heart apart I need your love Thought I want your touch But I don't need it all that much If we don't get a start Then I won't fall apart my love Breaking up is taking up too much time Folding up is holding up my peace of mind I neeed your love I want your love Can't take your love It's no showdown What I could try to say is overtaken every day Love like fashion just goes round So tight in it Breaking up is taking up too much time Folding up is holding up my peace of mind Breaking up folding up holding up I do Breaking up is taking up too much time Folding up is holding up my peace of mind I need your love I want your love Can't take your love And I don't need your love to find me I don't need your love to bind me I don't need your love to hold me I don't need your love she told me On and on and on and on and on and on and on and on Copyright © ℗ Greg Williams/Terry Bradford 1999

Hey Children Throw my caution to the wind No I won’t ever doubt again And I’ll be free of all of them It’s scary but it’s heady Throw my suitcase in the car With my vox and my guitar It’s a trip to take with care If you’re not really ready Hey children gather ‘round Can you hear that singing sound? Hey children bang the drum Do it while you’re young What’s done is done What will come will come Don’t be afraid Throw your toys away Throw me back into the show It’s the only thing I love and know It don’t matter where I go My line cannot be broken Throw my head right back and laugh I see no road I know no path The words uncertainty and death Are ready to be spoken Hey children watch your tongues Don’t lead you where your feet can’t run Hey children watch your heads Don’t forget your hearts What’s done is done What will come will come Don’t be afraid Throw your toys away.

about

Splurge Australia

Splurge is to quote MOJO magazine “a song-packing Melbourne four-piece” that has released three albums—Splurge (1999), Heavy Weather (2002) and The Cure For The Cure (2007). MOJO heard the ghost of Lennon in the way “they rock, they play it gentle, they deliver the hooks” and in songwriter Greg Williams’ “expressive and emotionally direct” voice are echoes of Grant McLennon and Steve Kilbey. ... more
