Doors and Bridges Wayne Jury V/1 Some folks are with us for a short time, and some say they’ve been here too long Some shine a light in the dark of the night when everything seems to go wrong. My Brother was strong and dependable but his time here was cut short by half And who knows why it was his time to die and nothing I could do was enough. Chorus 1 Now I know that his time was over, all this thinking’s not doing me right What is done is done. And there ain’t no one who could change it, or help make it right. We’ll meet again one day as brothers, when blood is gone and bones are dust We’ll meet on the road called forgiveness, through the doors and the bridges we’ve crossed. V/2 Death defying acts of compassion, many an aeon will cross And the milk of human kindness lives somewhere in everyone’s heart My brother you kept it hidden, locked away like it’s some kind of shame But pounded your door like a working class Whore, demanding she wants to be paid. Chorus 2 And in time I’ll find forgiveness, ‘cause that’s the road I’m travelling on Shine a light down ancient highways our ancestors walked once before We’ll meet again one day as brothers, when blood is gone and bones are dust We’ll meet on the road called forgiveness, through the doors and the bridges we’ve crossed. M/8 Life is a bitter sweet mistress, no quarter is given some days. You were down on your knees and you still tried to stand, it broke my heart just to witness. And when the last breath came for those that remain Sweet relief that the suffering is gone Life goes on. V/3 At rivers bend, I will meet you, and we’ll sit with no need for words And sorry, won’t have any meaning because time doesn’t know it exists. And as the golden light flickers and dances’ through the leaves of the eucalypt trees I’ll lay down a swag there beside you, in the cool of the soft evening breeze Chorus 2 And in time we’ll learn forgiveness, that’s the road I’m looking for Shine a light down ancient highways, together we’ve walked once before We’ll meet again one day as brothers, when blood is gone and bones are dust We’ll meet on that road called forgiveness, through the doors and the bridges we’ve crossed We’ll meet on the road called forgiveness, through the doors and the bridges we’ve crossed.

It’s a new day (Song of indifference) Wayne Jury This is a song of indifference; just take your place in the queue Or if you like, leave your number and someday I’ll get back to you Turn on reality TV. On your tablet or telephone. See me and all of my problems, in case you don’t have enough of your own. I need some gratification; you know I need it today How come I feel dislocation? When I can’t have it all my own way? Imagine more is the headline, on the billboards and in your news feed The neighbours have got more than I got, so that’s how much stuff that I need. How come I can’t have that lifestyle, famous, and rich and complete? I want what I am entitled, and I expect it for free. Just take the corporate position; they need to sell more stuff I’ll suck it up like a siphon, but somehow it’s never enough. It’s a new day, tomorrow is a new day People it’s a new day the sun is shining It’s a new day, tomorrow is a new day People If you came looking for justice, I’d say you’re in the wrong place Justice, just up and left us, in the corner it’s hiding its face The bullies came armed with dollars; they argued that right can be wrong Supported by Lawyers and scholars, the arm of the law can be long I guess I’ll just lay here and wallow and not give a damn how it goes Whatever they serve up I’ll swallow, while the Media holds on to my nose I’ll wake tomorrow and feel good, in my comfortable middle class bed With slogans and a few zillion sound bites running around in my head It’s a new day, Tomorrow is a new day people, it’s a new day, the sun is shining, it’s a new day, tomorrow is a new day people.

King of the broken Heart Wayne Jury key C V/1 If you loved me, like I love you You would keep it, to yourself Cause you know, the pain, and heartbreak That a love like ours could bring V/2 We meet as friends, in company I kiss your cheek and you kiss me But I long to hold you closer To feel your heart beat on mine But if we can’t be lovers then friends we shall be ‘Cause I’d rather have you in my life than to not have you at all V/3 So long, goodbye, I’ll see you again Go home to your family, we’ll still be friends And I’ll keep my secret, locked safe inside And no one will know, all the love that I hide And I guess I’ll just be happy To know you’re treated right. And you’ll never know, that I love you, love you so ‘cause if I knew, that you loved me too It would tear our worlds apart Cause I’m the King of the bro-ken heart. Yes I’m the King, Yes I’m the King, oh I’m the King I’m the King of the bro-ken heart.

Rain 06:24
Rain Wayne Jury Beyond the horizon, the buildings rise high In the house of the fallen, where the earth meets the sky There are cracks in the earth where my seed used to grow No water above me, No water below Rain, Wash me clean. Rain, Oh I believe The joy of living, the pain of the grief The fear of dying can shake your belief They bring cold comfort, those clouds on the hill But a bottle of moonshine from my Grandfathers still Rain, Wash me clean. Rain, Oh I believe Rain, Take me home. Rain, Cleanse my soul In the dark before dawn I am under And the water around takes me down Amber and cool it surrounds me I surrender.... and sink, like a stone Instrumental Chorus The Willy Willy rises, a mouth full dust I’d eat this brown dirt if I knew that I must To save my family and my dignity Do I beg for forgiveness or get down on my knees? Rain, Wash me clean. Rain, Oh I believe Rain, Take me home. Rain, cleanse my soul, and set me free Rain, wash me clean. Rain, I believe. Rain, take me home. Rain, cleanse my soul

about

This is my second release with all my own tunes - that was completely accidental but it just worked out that way. Most tunes are pretty new but 'Jimmi Jimmi' was inspired by my 8 year old self and written when I was about 19 (a long time ago!) The title track 'It's a new day' is about my indifference to the need to consume 'stuff'. The EP (6 tracks) was recorded quickly in a very 'down home', earthy studio. Thanks to Jack Meredith for his awesome harmonica playing and Matiss Shubert for his great 'ears' and beautiful fiddle and mandolin.
Every day is a new day and a new start. I hope you enjoy it. WJ
