Demo-songs

I upload some of my demo-songs to Soundcloud. Here, on this page, I have listed a handfull or so of my personal favourites.

I have written over 200 songs by now, so this is really just a small peak... If you are interested in recording and/or publishing any of them feel free to drop me a line on music@bayjensen.dk

I am sure we can work something out!

THOUGHT I'D LOST MY MIND IT'S TRUE
GOIN' OUT OF MY HEAD m'hm
THEN COME TO FIND IT'S YOU
AN' I'D REALLY LOST MY HEART INSTEAD

I WASTED MY DAYS AN' NIGHTS
WALKIN' THE FLOOR m'hm
NEVER KNOWIN' WHERE I WAS GOIN'
FEELIN' INSECURE BUT THEN

THE SOUND OF YOUR VOICE SENT MY SENSES OFF THE CHART
WHEN YOU SPEAK TO ME YOUR WORDS WRAP AROUN' MY HEART

WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS  –  MATTERS OF THE HEART
SOME WEAR THEIRS YEAH  –  WEAR 'EM ON THEIR SLEEVE
AN' WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME I SEE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE NO IT NEVER LIES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE IT NEVER LIES

NOW I KNOW HOW THINGS STAND
GOIN' CRAZY OVER YOU m'hm
THEY WERE GETTIN' OUT OF HAND
BUT NOW I KNOW JUS' WHAT TO DO

THE SOUND OF YOUR VOICE SENT EMOTIONS OFF THE CHART
AN' WHEN YOU SPEAK TO ME YOUR WORDS WRAP AROUN' MY HEART

WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS  –  MATTERS OF THE HEART
SOME WEAR THEIRS YEAH  –  WEAR 'EM ON THEIR SLEEVE
AN' WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME I SEE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE NO IT NEVER LIES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE IT NEVER LIES

IF I HAD A RICKSHAW I'D RIDE YOU ROUN' THE TOWN
OR IF I HAD A CIRCUS FOR YOU I'D PLAY THE CLOWN
IF I HAD A SAILBOAT I'D FLOAT YOU DOWN THE STREAM
AS I HAVE NONE OF THESE ALL I CAN DO IS - DREAM

WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS  –  MATTERS OF THE HEART
SOME WEAR THEIRS YEAH  –  WEAR 'EM ON THEIR SLEEVE
WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME I SEE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE NO IT NEVER LIES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE IT NEVER LIES

WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS  –  MATTERS OF THE HEART
SOME WEAR THEIRS YEAH  –  THEY WEAR 'EM ON THEIR SLEEVE
WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME I SEE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE NO IT NEVER LIES
IN MATTERS OF THE HEART THE LOOK OF LOVE IT NEVER LIES

Sunshine In My Pocket

Words by Simon Chidwick

I wake up to a bright light that
Could pour into the darkest heart
I feel like I could have a hit song
And break into the pop charts

I will fly by in a windwhirl
I am ready to take on the world 

I feel so alive, I feel so alive
I've got sunshine here in my pocket
I feel so alive, I feel so alive
I've got sunshine here in my pocket

I walk down the street with a smile
As wide as the ocean bed
I feel better than a sunburnt tourist
Who is drinking in the Med

I will fly by in a windwhirl
I am ready to take on the world

I feel so alive, I feel so alive
I've got sunshine here in my pocket
I feel so alive, I feel so alive
I've got sunshine here in my pocket

Why don't you join me on this glorious beam?
This is a beautiful tangerine dream
Why don't you join in with my genius scheme? 
We're great in the summer like strawberries and cream

I will fly by in a windwhirl
I am ready to take on the world

I feel so alive, I feel so alive
I've got sunshine here in my pocket
I feel so alive, I feel so alive
I've got sunshine here in my pocket

I feel so alive, I feel so alive
I've got sunshine here in my pocket
I feel so alive, I feel so alive
I've got sunshine here in my pocket


The Breeze of Summer   

Words by Neil Ward

My tears you'll never see
My hands you'll never hold,
My laughter will slip past you
Like the Winter wind so cold.

Theres a sadness in your heart
Right where once I used to be,
The smile that you once cherished, love   
Is gone now for all to see.

Shrouded by a veil of mist
This earthly world cannot see,
My family is what I called you
By Heaven, Earth and Sea.

For when the breeze of Summer comes to
Caress your skin again,
My fingertips are on you, yeah
Until we meet again…… 

With the sunset of my passing
Please don't be sad for me, love
For I live on, in a place that's strong
Closer to you than to me

Heavens now where I reside
And I see your painful tears,
But my love is in your veins
Throughout the coming of years. 

For now I'm merely absent
Like the mist you now embrace,
But we will share our love again
I promise to touch your face.

For when the breeze of Summer comes to
Caress your skin again,
My fingertips are on you, yeah
Until we meet again……    

For when the breeze of Summer comes to
Caress your skin again,
My fingertips are on you, yeah
Until we meet again……

Until we meet again….
Until we meet again….


Party On!

Words by Simon Chidwick

Today I walked from my father's graveside
My tears had not barely dried
I can't face walking all the way home
Neither will I be alone

Today I walked from my mother's graveside
All the flowers falling down 

You bring the booze, I'll bring the funk
Tonight my friends, I just want to get drunk

Party On
Tomorrow we're gone
Party On
All Night Long
Party On
Tomorrow we're gone
Party On
All Night Long 

Today my boss told me I'd been replaced
She said it with a smile on her face

You bring the booze, I'll bring the funk
Tonight my friends, I just want to get drunk

Party On
Tomorrow we're gone
Party On
All Night Long
Party On
Tomorrow we're gone
Party On
All Night Long

Yes, I can feel when things fall apart
Just like the sun going down with my heart
Yes, I can feel when things fall apart
Just like the sun going down with my heart
Let's make the most of being here and..... 

You bring the booze, I'll bring the funk
Tonight my friends, I just want to get drunk

Party On
Tomorrow we're gone
Party On
All Night Long
Party On
Tomorrow we're gone
Party On
All Night Long 

(Repeat)


We Will Be

Words by Simon Chidwick

I am wondering what life might hold
How it might try to unfold
Where will you be in twenty years
Will it be smiles or will it be sad tears
I just don't know 

Let's all meet up when we're all fifty
Won't it be strange to see how we've grown old
Things to be told

And we will be filled with joy
And we will be overweight
And we'll be the Real McCoy
And I will be holding hands
with the love of my life

You'll probably be rich and famous
And I'll be nobody at all
You'll be brave and quite outrageous
Will I still be here living on my own?
I just don't know

Let's all meet up when we're all fifty
Won't it be strange to see how we've grown old
Things to be told

And we will be filled with joy
And we will be overweight
And we'll be the Real McCoy
And I will be holding hands
with the love of my life

If dreams they do come true
Then I will still be with you
If dreams they do come true
Then I will still be with you

Let's all meet up when we're all fifty
Won't it be strange to see how we've grown old
Things to be told

And we will be filled with joy
And we will be overweight
And we'll be the Real McCoy
And I will be holding hands
with the love of my life

And we will be filled with joy
And we will be overweight
And we'll be the Real McCoy
And I will be holding hands
with the love of my life


By Your Side

Words by Simon Chidwick

You won't take me with you by your side
Though I am so desperate to go
I will bring you untold glories
But you don't see, you just don't know

We don't see eye to eye 

I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side
I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side

You took my life - locked my love away
Still I am here every day
I wear these clothes to make you fancy me
Look at me, I'm genuine

We don't see eye to eye

I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side
I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side
I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side
I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side

Build up this palace and build up these walls
Listen to me, 'cos I won't be your fool
Build up this palace and build up these walls
I still love you and I'll try to stay cool

We don't see eye to eye

I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side
I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side
I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side
I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side
I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side
I'll be going where you're going
I'll be by your side


Columbus

Words by Simon Chidwick

Growing up in such a small town
Dreaming big every day
Giant squids and a golden crown
Washed up in a smugglers bay

Stranger feeling strange in a strange land
Sights and sounds unknown
But it's not strange to hold your hand here
I feel like this could be home

I'm excited to discover
I'm excited to uncover

I feel like I could be Christopher Columbus
I feel like I could be Captain Cook
I'm on my own mission to explore
And I'll be breaking - breaking down your door

I am jealous of Mr Armstrong
Wanted to be first on the moon
But at least I can be first at something
First to be loved by you

I'm excited to discover
I'm excited to uncover

I feel like I could be Christopher Columbus
I feel like I could be Captain Cook
I'm on my own mission to explore
And I'll be breaking - breaking down your door

There was a man who once raced
To the South Pole but froze to death
And though he felt he failed us all
His photo hangs on the Heroes Wall
Oh, I wish I could be like Robert Scott

I'm excited to discover
I'm excited to uncover

I feel like I could be Christopher Columbus
I feel like I could be Captain Cook
I'm on my own mission to explore
And I'll be breaking - breaking down your door

I feel like I could be Christopher Columbus
I feel like I could be Captain Cook
I'm on my own mission to explore
And I'll be breaking - breaking down your door


These Dreams Of Mine

Words by Geoffrey Matthews

My head is facing forward,
But my eyes are looking back.
There’s always something lurking,
Down some dark and lonely track.
I can’t escape this feeling.
A chill runs down my spine.
I don’t know what is real,
Of all these dreams of mine!
 
There’s a shadow round my shoulder,
A weight upon my back.
A sense of loss and longing,
For the thing I can’t get back.
A twinge of melancholy,
Making me feel so sad,
I’m trying to find an answer,
To the thing I never had.
 
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
With these dreams of mine!
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
With these dreams of mine! 

Can I share the loneliness?
Of a cruel and heavy load,
Can I share the weight - as
It is carried down the road.
Will I see the morning,
If I wield it through the night?  
I think I’m all alone,
In my never ending fight.

So, now I see the point of,
Summers’ lost and winter snow.
There’s always something harking,
Back from memories long ago.
A never ending journey,
It’s more than just a sign,
In the treadmill of my life.
With all these dreams of mine!
 
Well, shadows, weights and burdens,
Are things that will make you sad
All precious things and longing,
For the things you never had.
You can’t escape this feeling.
When that chill runs down your spine.
I think I’m all alone,
With all these dreams of mine!
 
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
With these dreams of mine!
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
With these dreams of mine!
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
I think I’m all alone,
With these dreams of mine!


That Loved On Look

Words by Simon Chidwick

"Hey," I ask you "What's Going On?"
You say "There's nothing going on"
I say "Is there a new man?"
You say, "Men? With them, I'm done"
I say "So tell me, who was that guy
I saw you were just talking to?"
You say "I just had a bottle of wine
And I needed him to unscrew"

"What's that ring right there on your finger?"
I try to ask you innocently. 
“That is none of your damn business"
You tell me belligerently. 
"Who have you lit these candles for?
Is someone coming round tonight?"
“No, nobody special" You say. 
“I expect Richard Cartwright"

Who do you think you're fooling?
It's as clear as the day
I'm so happy for you, I just want to say
You don't need to hide it
Don't need to be scared
Just get out there and shout it
Time to be brave

You're wearing that loved on look
(Repeat)

Who do you think you're fooling?
It's as clear as the day
I'm so happy for you, I just want to say
You don't need to hide it
Don't need to be scared
Just get out there and shout it
Time to be brave

You're wearing that loved on look
(Repeat)


Coming Home

Words by Simon Chidwick

If we are lucky, we see each other twice a year
That's just not enough time for you I fear
We e-mail each other nearly every single day
I always tell you love will find a way

I always leave you in tears at the airport
My longing is as ugly as a witches wart
I hope one day we'll be together in Penang
Listening to B.A Robertson's classic 'Bang Bang'

I won't be - I won’t be alone
And I'll be coming home to....

I'll be coming home to you now and forever
I'll be coming home to you now for the better
So just like I used to say
You know love will find.........a way

Love will find you if you want to
Love will find you if you like
Love will find you if you want to
Love's like an apple, take a bite 

No more missing each other, no more waiting
No more soul searching or contemplating
Just to have you in my arms, well, that is just gravy
To get you here, I won't have to call the Royal Navy

I won't be - I won’t be alone
And I'll be coming home to....

I'll be coming home to you now and forever
I'll be coming home to you now for the better
I'll be coming home to you now and forever
I'll be coming home to you now for the better
So just like I used to say
You know love will find.........


Tomorrow   

Words co-written by John Quick

Nothing seems right to me
World has no harmony
All of these sticks and stones
Hurting right through my bones

Seems like we’ve lost our way
Things goin’ worse every day
Good news is hard to find
What’s gonna ease my mind?

Will I be, Will you be, Will we be
Here tomorrow?
Will I be, Will you be, Will we be
Gone tomorrow?

Assure me we’ll be here
Yeah, come and help me put my mind at rest
Come bring me words of wisdom
Here I am wond’rin’
What can you suggest?
What can you suggest?

Tell me we’ll be OK
Tell me we’ll find our way
Tell me that better days
Are coming through the haze

Tell me I shouldn’t fear
Tell me a good day’s near
Find the right words to say
To chase all my fears away

Will I be, Will you be, Will we be
Here tomorrow?
Will I be, Will you be, Will we be
Gone tomorrow?

Assure me we’ll be here
Yeah, come and help me put my mind at rest
Come bring me words of wisdom
Here I am wond’rin’
What can you suggest?
What can you suggest?

How we got here. I don’t know
This world that leaves me way down low
So tell me yes and never no
Show me there’s a way to go

Will I be, Will you be, Will we be
Here tomorrow?
Will I be, Will you be, Will we be
Gone tomorrow

Assure me we’ll be here
Yeah, come and help me put my mind at rest
Come bring me words of wisdom
Here I am wond’rin’
What can you suggest?
What can you suggest?
