Lyrics: “Sweet Honey” – Michael Barrow and The Tourists

There’s a girl that I’ve been keeping my eye on She’s got a way of getting under my skin And every time I feel like I’m getting closer Ooh, she’s just not letting me in But I need that sweet honey Just a little taste on my tongue Give me that sweet honey I want […]

Lyrics: “Never Stop” – Michael Barrow and The Tourists

Oh, I love the way you drive me crazy You know every way to frustrate me You get me high and you bring me down But you’re always there when I hit the ground Will I ever stop? Will I ever stop? Oh, will I ever stop – ever stop loving you? Will I ever […]

Lyrics: “Something New” – Michael Barrow and The Tourists

I’ve heard it all before But it’s different this time I could listen to your disapproval on repeat When I’m supposed to be Trying to make the most of me Instead of stumbling through the door And falling down on the floor at your feet But for you I want to be something new I […]

You told me there were always blue skies coming Well, I tried and failed to make it through the grey And I’ve never been more tired but I’ll keep running ’cause I’ve been told tomorrow brings another day There’s a whisper on the wind that keeps me going It promises to lead the way back […]

Lyrics: “Hope You Do” – Michael Barrow and The Tourists

I’d throw myself right off a bridge Just to catch your eye Don’t let my lack of confidence Make you walk on by Is it out of line to say you’re fine? What do you say? It’s none of my concern if you Don’t want the same Because I want your heart And I hope […]

Lyrics: “Running Barefoot” – Michael Barrow and The Tourists

I was running barefoot I was unprepared But I chased you like a dream I’m a man With brittle hands But I still write you pretty things Cause I’ve caught you now I don’t know how You fell into my hands Like a raindrop in the sand I was running barefoot Darling, I was scared […]
