lyrics

I’m writing you letters at the Cinema. Somehow it makes you seem not so far.
I know everyone reads them, your Dad and “Our Anne” too. Guess they know how I feel about you.
Did you hear that Song? Did you like that Film? Did you read the news? Maybe we can travel soon?
You’re in my head on a Silver Screen. Laughing as the frames roll by.
Always in my head, like a movie queen. Where the camera tracks your every sigh.
Sitting in Beale Street. Drinking down the Blues. Just you and me and W.C. Handy too.
And sitting in Katoomba, it’s like we’re back in 1952. Eating chocolate cake and staring at those mountains blue.
On a red rock. In the midday sun. There’s a desert moon. Beneath the Southern Cross.
You’re in my head on a Silver Screen. Laughing as the frames roll by.
Always in my head, like a movie queen. Where the camera tracks your every sigh.
There’s an ocean between us. I can hear you in my head.
And the phone just exploded with those three words that you said.
You’re in my head on a Silver Screen. Laughing as the frames roll by.
Always in my head, like a movie queen. Where the camera tracks your every sigh.

Tales of the Tape:

Recorded by Mick Wilson at Far end Studios.

Mick Wilson played drums, tambourine, bass, organ, baritone guitar and, generally, loved the low end. I sang, played acoustic, electric and baritone guitars, mandolin, climbed to the top of Ayers Rock and argued with the Astronomer. Fin wrote letters to Linda and made the telephone explode. Andrea played the movie queen, ate chocolate cake and laughed as the frames rolled by.

Mick Terry London, UK

Mick Terry's LP, The Grown Ups was released in 2010. A slice of piano power-pop at its finest, generously laced with influences from the ’60′s and ’70′s. A pinch of The Beatles, a touch of Beach Boys & splash of Todd Rundgren all add up to nine classic songs about love, loss, faith and hope. The Grown Ups is an album of classy and intelligent melodic pop. Pop music for grown ups, if you will… ... more
