about

Some of the cast of the play Everyone by Franz Frederick went down to Torquay for the day to make this beautiful collection of songs.

Mark Drower was the young RE teacher who wrote and performed the songs and directed the play, and Simon Miller, then in the sixth form and now known as Pok, played lead guitar.

Altogether a company of 17 people visited the studios that day.

Track Name: The Mirror
THE MIRROR
I see my image is cast upon the wall
I see the mirror but I don’t know what it’s for
Reflected in a moment I can see all I am
Passing on the light well I’m doing what I can

Now I’m gonna fly high
I’m gonna fly high

Waves crest and crash in the rhythm of my waking
Moving through the past I can feel foundations shaking
Reflected on the screen I can see what might have been
In others who before who had the strength to dream

Now I’m gonna fly high
I’m gonna fly high

We want to say we love you
We want to say it so
We want to say we can feel you
But the words they will not flow
We want to say we love you
We want to say it so
We want to say we believe in you
But the words they will not flow
The words they will not
The words they will not
The words they will not flow

I can see the people move through the tides and the times
From the past to future they will sing the same old rhymes
Displayed before our eyes we can see eternal plays
Merging into one as time begins to say

Now I’m gonna fly high
I’m gonna fly high

Track Name: I Know I Know You
I KNOW I KNOW YOU
I may be mistaken babe
Right or wrong, you’ll never know now
I may be mistaken babe
Right or wrong, it never shows now

I know I know you but I just cannot place it
I know I know you but I just cannot trace it

You said you’d always be there
Always be my friend
But now you’re gone and I’m all alone
And I’m on my own again

Well, you took all I gave you and you walked away
You don’t care now
I asked you to help me and you walked away
We don’t share now

I know I know you but I just cannot place it
I know I know you but I just cannot trace it

I thought it was worth my time
To get to know you well
But since you’ve gone I just can’t tell
If I should try again

I know I know you but I just cannot place it
I know I know you but I just cannot trace it

You said you’d always be there
Always be my friend
But now you’re gone and I’m all alone
And I’m on my own again

Track Name: This Time Tomorrow
THIS TIME TOMORROW
When I’ve said all I’ve got to say
And you’re moving away
Are you still gonna see my way
This time tomorrow

When I’ve done all I can
About what I feel and am
Are you still gonna give a damn
This time tomorrow

When I’ve told you all I plan
Are you still gonna understand
When I reach out for your hand
In joy or sorrow

Do I have to tell you
Do I have to say
That all we ever needed
Was to see each other’s way

When we’ve left all the queues
And done what we’re going to do
Will we be in each other’s shoes
This time tomorrow

When we’ve left all the faces
That we thought we would always wear
Will we have left some traces
Anywhere

Do we have to tell you
Do I have to say
Do we have to reach you
Will we find our way
And all we ever needed
Was to see each other’s way

Track Name: Treasure
TREASURE
Operator, fornicator
Grabbing and duping your friends
Wheeling and dealing
Tricking and stealing
Double-crossing, double-dealing
Renting and selling
Buying, shopping, lying, leasing
Lending and swapping
Bullion bonds and real estate

Sorry fella, it’s too late
Don’t slobber, I don’t wait

Cheating for a million
Cheating for a dime
Cheating is cheating boy, every time

You two-bit swindler millionaire
Well now it’s over, I don’t care

Sorry fella, it’s too late
Don’t slobber, I don’t wait
You will never
Never, never see the sun again
You’ll never
Never see the sun again
You’ll never
Never see the sun again
