    Coming off the back of my triumphant 'Rock Album Of The Year' nominated album "Not all Who Are Lost Wander", this EP sidesteps the exuberance and hides its message in melancholy, reflection, and seeing yourself in the 'everyman'. Sometimes it is a relief to take the cape off and let someone else be the hero for a moment or two...

You wake up early in the morning You say you're waiting for something You felt, when you were only small... When you were only small La la la la When you were only small La la la la When you were only small It was so real you could taste it That feeling, deep inside your soul You felt, on Friday afternoons... On Friday afternoons La la la la On Friday afternoons La la la la On Friday afternoons (bridge) Walking with you is like walking through a forest A clearing comes, and then things become so bright Sometimes it feels like I'm walking through a shadow A shadow... There can be no shadows without light La la la la No shadows without light La la la la A shadow without light You wake up early in the morning You say you're waiting for something You felt, when you were only small... When you were only small La la la la When you were only small La la la la When you were only small © Richard Cummins

I'm A Notary 03:51
"I see them on the sidewalk, looking through the glass - then they walk right past. Should somebody come in - I'd gladly sit them down and I'd fill them in." 'I have been instated by a regulating body: I went to school when everybody (else) went and partied... ... so I could handle their affairs - everybody has so many cares.' "So I'm A Notary! Appointed by official Govt Authority; Distinct from Judiciary - Domestic deeds, affairs and Power of Attorney. She opens up the door with a single piece of paper but I hope for more Embosser in my hand, affirming and confirming, I apply the stamp 'Cause I'm A Notary! Appointed by official Govt Authority; Distinct from Judiciary - Domestic deeds, affairs and Power of Attorney. Ahhhhh.... So I could handle their affairs... Yes, I'm A Notary! A symbol of a Systematic Nobility - a Circular Depiction - enforcing Common Law in a Foreign Jurisdiction. Based in Civility, Administrating Oaths with a sense of Propriety. Yes I'm A Notary! Appointed by official Govt Authority I'm A Notary! © Richard Cummins

I traded Religion for Business and Money for Faith And I stayed on the sidelines where I knew I was safe Well, my money seems funny, and business ain't great I'm giving up on my business, and living by Faith 60 seconds is a minute, 60 minutes is an hour 7 days in a week, and time is money, and money's power 30 days in a month, 12 months in a year I better start living, before I'm out of here I spent my life trying, trying so hard But I feel like a dog chasing sticks in the yard I've waited on people time and again But just because they're people, don't mean they're your friends Your friends...? Yode-alay-dee-hooo I've read all the books they told me to read And I've followed the leader and practiced good deeds But now leaders seem meaner than they ought to be I'm giving up on my leaders and start living free I was born a bastard, my parents weren't Wed And I only found out after both of them were dead Now a Son needs a Father, a Father a Wife Let's get on with living the rest of my life I spent my life trying, trying so hard But I feel like a dog chasing sticks in the yard I've waited on people time and again But just because they're people, don't mean they're your friends Your friends...? Yode-alay-dee-hooo

No Milk Today Official Lyrics: "No Milk Today" No milk today, my love has gone away The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn No milk today, it seems a common sight But people passing by don't know the reason why How could they know just what this message means? The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams How could they know the palace there had been Behind the door where my love reigned as queen No milk today, it wasn't always so The company was gay, we'd turn night into day But all that's left is a place dark and lonely A terraced house in a mean street back of town Becomes a shrine when I think of you only Just two up two down No milk today, it wasn't always so The company was gay, we'd turn night into day As music played the faster did we dance We felt it both at once, the start of our romance How could they know just what this message means? The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams How could they know a palace there had been Behind the door where my love reigned as queen No milk today, my love has gone away The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn But all that's left is a place dark and lonely A terraced house in a mean street back of town Becomes a shrine when I think of you only Just two up two down No milk today, my love has gone away The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn No milk today, it seems a common sight But people passing by don't know the reason why How could they know just what this message means? The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams How could they know a palace there had been Behind the door where my love reigned as queen No milk today, it wasn't always so The company was gay, we'd turn night into day But all that's left is a place dark and lonely A terraced house in a mean street back of town Oh, all that's left is a place dark and lonely A terraced house in a mean street back of town Oh, all that's left is a place dark and lonely A terraced house in a mean street back of town

You wake up early in the morning
You say you're waiting for something
You felt, when you were only small...

It was so real you could taste it
That feeling, deep inside your soul
You felt, on Friday afternoons...

When you were only small

about

Richard Cummins Agassiz, British Columbia

Richard Cummins first sang with his Mother on a home made tape when he was roughly 3 years old, in tune. She, having grown up on 50's rockabilly and country icons like Loretta Lynn, taught Richard the guitar at an early age. But it was upon his discovery of the Beatles that made Richard obsess over music, learning guitar, bass, piano & drums and writing boxes full of songs. ... more
