Dennis Draeger two of these songs were on a compilation called Return of the Beat Menace--Caught in the Motion and Catch Me I'm Falling. I'm pretty sure these are different versions of those songs, and it is great to hear other songs from this era. Favorite track: Catch Me I'm Falling.

fiftypercent As good as Deacon Blue, Danny Wilson and other bands of that ilk. Dumbstruck, right from first listen, would have been a great single. Favorite track: Dumbstruck.

Dampening footprints got lost in the sand Washed away by the rain and the tide Promises made with an open hand Are crushed in the fist you hide Seventeen seems an early age to be broken in two by romance Stuck at sixteen this open cage can only be left behind once I didn't believe in chance Dirty station in a seaside street take us home from these day trip crowds Singing songs to the railways beat Counting the winter clouds Hoping they'd turn around But it's a shame if I have to call you And say it's for just one more time It's a game that I lost When I had to stall you And loving became my crime Controlling the wheels of time... Clever words in a pool of tears No more than a teenage game Saying sorry while no one hears Hoping we'll stop the rain.. But it's a shame if I have to call you And say it's for just one more time It's a game that I lost When I had to stall you And loving became my crime Controlling the wheels of time
