about

As of 2015, Leadfinger have released 4 albums and 3 EP's and albums and we've just got album #5 ready for release in 2016...in the meantime we figured we'd put together a compilation of some of our best obscure tunes from the past...there are some great buried tracks at the end of albums and on long disappeared Ep's that we've grown to love. Hope you do too.

Track Name: Beside Me, Against Me
Beside Me, Against Me

With you beside me, it won’t take long
With you beside me, it won’t take long
With you beside me…I can’t go wrong

With you behind me, I can’t go wrong
With you behind me, I can’t go wrong
With you behind me….I can make this roll along
With you behind me….it won’t take long

With you against me, what’s the point of this song
With you against me, I can’t go on
With you against me, I can’t go on (everything goes wrong)
With you against me, I won’t be round for long
Ohhh with you against me – oooooo oh

Are you beside me or against me
With you beside me, I can’t go wrong

With you behind me this show keeps rolling on
With you beside me I can take the whole world on
With you Behind me I can take on anyone
With you beside me the world keeps keeping on – and on and on and on…..

I keep on keeping on
I’ll keep kicking on
Keep on kicking keep on hangin on
Keep on singing, keep on playing, I keep on
Track Name: Come & Dance
Come and Dance

Come and Dance with me
My little girl you know just what you want to be
Come and dance with me,

Come and Dance with me
My little girl you know just what you want to be
Come and Dance Come and Dance Come and Dance with me
Come and Lean on me

Can you still look me in the eye
When 20 years have gone bye bye
Can you lean on me, Would you Dance with me?
Come and Lean on, Come and lean on me….

Come and Dance with me
My ittle girl you know just what you want to be

Track Name: Thin Lizzy on my Mind
Thin Lizzy on my Mind

Hey You, You wanna boogaloo – Alright
My Thin Lizzy is on my mind
A rocknroll band from another time
Out of the seventies so sublime
They came from the emerald isle Come on

My my my my old man says he knew them for a while
when they were young growing up in Dublin
Rising up in Roisinh Dubh and I I I I wanna boogaloo
You know you want tooooo x 2

Phil Lynott and his afro hair
He was a Soul man from the emerald Eire
His leather pants and he sang like a bird
Up on his stage he would rule the world
Phil Lynott Rock’n’roll,
Thin Lizzy Lose Control

Nananana Nobody ever put on a show like him
(Wink of) his eye and a cheeky grin
Phil Lynott Rock’n’roll, Thin Lizzy Lose Control
Twin guitar solos
My Thin Lizzy my my my
Thin Lizzy rock and roll, Jamaican soul

Hey Hey ….Hey Hey….hey Hey
I wanna tell you whats on my mind
Thin Lizzy all the time
Phil Lynott Rock’n’roll Thin Lizzy Lose Control
Track Name: The Wandering Man
Wandering Man Aug 2011

Just like a Gypsy, I was born in a Caravan
My good luck to be born a simple wandering man
Turned myself inside out, twisting on a roundabout
Looking for an easy way out, Going on a walkabout
Hear the people shout

Here comes the wandering man
Don’t try to understand just keep a wondering
Here comes the wandering man

Like a Hobo, I have lived on the side of the road
My bad luck to be in such a miserable hole
Turn myself inside out, twisting on the roundabout
Looking for an easy way out, head off on walkabout
Hear the children shout

A house ain’t a home, when you’re alone
A house ain’t a home, when you’re alone.
Track Name: December Runaway
December Runaway

Run Run Runaway with me Yeah I want you to come along
Christmas is coming to town
And it always seems to bring me down

Cos it’s all, it’s always the same,
And I always leave everything too late

Come on and runaway with me
I want you to take me away
December is always crazy And Sydney gets it oh so wrong
I can’t afford to buy you diamond rings
But I can sing you Nick Lowe songs I know you like him
So run run runaway with me
Christmas, just you and me, no family

I’ll make all the calls
I’ll tell everyone we’re going away
I want you to be my December runaway
I want you to be my Christmas runaway

And this is my call, this is my call to restraint
No longer enthusiastic after 20 years of complaints
Christmas time, Christmas time, it never seems to abate
So give me 1 more year and maybe I can make it a wait

Run Run Runaway with me Yeah I want you to come along
Christmas is coming to town
And it always seems to bring me down
Be my December runaway
Track Name: Edge of Suburbia (urban dub)
Edge Of Suburbia
I got lost in suburbia
Hanging out at the edge of the world
they can’t find me here in suburbia
I’m on the internet telephone calls
In suburbia - I’ll hide away at the end of the world
If you find me here in suburbia
You might find yourself in suburbia
Spend the days in a haze

Computer games and wasting time
Searching to free your mind
I’m anonymous a face in the middle of a crowd heading home…
Heading home thru space, suburbia, I’ll hide away
If you find yourself in suburbia
You might find the edge of suburbia
You’ll pend the days in a haze

I got lost in suburbia,
I found myself hanging out at the end of the world
Just hanging out…

Playin guitar just like Neil Young
Cruising the bush I got nature and fun
Electric blues, another cup of tea
Jump on a train ride along with me

The edge of suburbia, I’ll fade away
They can’t find me here in suburbia
You’ll find me on the edge of suburbia
You can spend the days in a Haze
Track Name: Rich Kids Can't Play Rock'n'Roll
Rich Kids

You’re all white and clean and live in the best parts of this – town
Yer Daddy bought you a house and a job
The silver spoon, I got nothing, so tell me your truth

Rich kids playing rock’n’roll
Tell yer Daddy he can’t buy you no soooooo – ul, Soul

Tell me bout your vintage guitars
You stick em in your two car garage
Tell me bout your latest cd’s
Don’t mention your plasma tv’s

Rich kids playing rock’n’roll
Tell yer Daddy he can’t buy you no soooooo – ul, Soul
Rich kids wanna be just like you and me
But they don’t work in no factory
& they don’t know what it’s like to be so alone, ohhh

Yer Getting down with the working class
But Your songs have nothing to say to me
On a search for meaning in a life
Where anything you wanted was given to you
When it’s over you’ll be gone
You’ll drop your fake r’n’r tongue
When it’s over I’ll see you run
Back to your palace in the sun
Track Name: A Floating Life
The Floating Life (inspired by John Forbes)

I wanted to survive, I wanted to get high, I wanted to invite, I wanted to incite,
I wanted just enough, I wanted to depart, I wanted to imbibe, I wanted to survive
I want to survive

With the justice of a rich man,
not the fortunes of a poor man’s tomb
And like a tinsel landscape
I’m walking past false doors
Through traffic lights and stop signs

I wanted to survive oh yeah
I wanted to get high, wanted to invite, I wanted to incite,
I wanted just enough, I want to survive and I wanted just to get by

Not the fortunes of a rich man, I’m not the equal of a poor man.
I’m Floating like a punch, a knockout sucker
Like the hue of your fake suntan
I’ve seen all the tough gestures
And souvenirs that don’t add up to nuthin much

All these things are portable, as for the rest
They can take these words and they can play them on the radio
They float through the air

It’s Floating life, A flow, I’m floating by,
A Floating Life, Floating,
I float through time
And then I just get higher
And then I’m gone away

Oh yeah, oh yeaah
And this is beautiful
It’s summer and the trees, I want it to survive
I got water running down the walls
and down the street, And down my steps
I want to survive, I want to invite, I wanted just enough
I want to survive, I want to survive, I want to survive and I
I want you to come back…sometime
