about

I posted a solo version of this earlier this year - www.macjams.com/song/75737 - but please, keep reading!
This is a live version of the song recorded with Mandy Siegel and PBGB members in The Shed in Pambula Beach.
Mandy is a new arrival in the area who loves to sing, and we (PBGB) have been very lucky to have her come along to The Shed every now and then to lift our game.
It was a total joy to do, and I'm so pleased to be able to post it here.

Afficianados may notice that I'm using regular chords here for a change - that's why I included them :)

It came out of nothing
Wasn’t something you said
No kind of a warning
There’s no voice in my head
I’m out here and stranded
It’s a quandary I’m in
Feeling disbanded
Tied up and branded

I’ve got no illusions
Got no axe to grind
I’m full of confusion
Of the worrying kind

Fishing for compliments
Never know where to look
Got a line in the water
But no bait on the hook
I’m out here and stranded
It’s a quandary I’m in
Feeling disbanded
Tied up and branded

I’ve got no illusions
Got no axe to grind
I’m full of confusion
Of the worrying kind

Need to change the equation
Need to pick at the lock
Too much time on my hands
While I run down the clock
I’m out here and stranded
It’s a quandary I’m in
Feeling disbanded
Tied up and branded

I’ve got no illusions
Got no axe to grind
I’m full of confusion
Of the worrying kind
