about

"Little Boat" is one of those albums that one might forget when asked about the favourite CDs, but is definitely listened to more often than the supposed favourites. This is because "Little Boat" offers a rich sound cosmos, which gradually reveals itself. Again and again one hears new, discovers different moods or flashes from Ajay's extensive rock repertoire. The term "Psychedelic Americana" fits well with the music of Ajay Mathur

Track Name: Here's The Love
HERE'S THE LOVE [3:16] There are times you think you know me. There are times you're sure you don't. As I hide behind my stories now and I'm making sure you won't. There are times you've heard my laughter. There are times you've seen me cry. And I do my best to hide it now but it's just so hard to try. There were times you caught me lying. There were times when all was clear. But I think I'll leave it up to you 'cause I know that I'm sincere. There were times I was a hero. There were times when I was not. But I've changed my mind about that now 'cause it seems that I forgot. Here's the love, here's the love, here's the love, here's the love. There are times when nothing matters. There are times when I'm on top. But I'm somewhere in the middle now and I think that's where I'll stop. There are times for me to listen. There are times to speak my mind. But I think I'm staying quiet now that's the place that I'll find. Here's the love, here's the love, here's the love, here's the love. You don't know me, you don't own me, you're a part of my true story. You don't know me, you don't owe me anything. So you think that you should know me, but I'm pretty sure you don't. 'Cause I hide behind my stories now and I'm making sure you won't. There are times when I'm your hero. There are times when I am not. I don't worry much about it now 'cause it seems that you forgot. Here's the love, here's the love, here's the love, here's the love.
Track Name: Forget About Yesterday
FORGET ABOUT YESTERDAY [3:49] Days when you feel like red is green. All the birds they're sounding mean. Heat of the sun it feels like rain. And your thoughts drive you insane. Too bad! When you're in it up to your knees. Too bad! Take my advice and will you please stop thinking about tomorrow. Forget about yesterday. Days like these turn you upside down. It's time to turn your head around. Everybody's getting sick of you. Can't figure out why you got the blues. Do it! When your life makes fun of you. Do it! Remember that it's easy to stop thinking about tomorrow. Do it! When your life makes fun of you. Do it! Remember that it's easy to stop thinking about tomorrow. Forget about yesterday. Stop thinking about tomorrow. Forget about yesterday. Stop thinking about tomorrow. Forget about yesterday.
Track Name: Start Living Again
START LIVING AGAIN [3:21] There you are far from me, what's left to say now. We've become who we are it's hard to say how. We've been wrong for quite a while, we share a mess. Playing hard-to-get we fall apart in emptiness. I'm not the only one with a broken heart, who needs to get smart and start living again. So the tears that we cried were shed for no one? They were only 'things' that we aspired not love for someone. Everything I was holding on to fed my fear. You were part of what I feared the most, it's very clear. You're not the only pretty face I know, I'm gonna let you go and start living again. Get it together, on your feet, go! Get it together, on your feet, go! Get it together, on your feet, go! [Playing hard to get, we fall apart] Get it together, on your feet, go! [Playing hard to get, we fall apart] Get it together, on your feet, go! I'm not the only one with a broken heart, who needs to get smart and start living again.
Track Name: Grooving in Paris (All My Choices)
GROOVING IN PARIS (ALL MY CHOICES) [3:40] Well I should be sat down working on a plan to get you back. But instead I'm here backtracking on a bus sitting next to Jacques. Drove past the Arc de Triumph, but my fight is far from done. Think I've been here before, but can't really be sure. Thinking 'bout all my choices, but I get in my way. Thinking 'bout all my choices, won't happen today. I'm riding a bus to Sacré Cœur. Well I stopped on the way to Bastille. Walked a few blocks further north. That's where I bumped right into Jacqueline and my heart skipped an oh la la. Found myself in a little café and a discussion going down. Think I've been here before but can't really be sure. Thinking 'bout all my choices but I get in my way. Thinking 'bout all my choices, won't happen today. I'm riding a bus to Sacré Cœur. I'm getting tired of thinking 'bout the choices I have to choose from. I'm getting tired of thinking 'bout you, mademoiselle. Thinking 'bout all my choices but I get in my way I can't hear what you say. All my choices, won't happen today, cuz I'm so far away. All my choices, I can't hear what you say. I'm riding a bus to Sacré Cœur.
Track Name: Little Boat
LITTLE BOAT [4:57] Got a medal for rising above the tall waves that keep crashing right in. Didn't mean to say it like this, but you were part of the deafening din. Little boat has been rowed down the bay, smashed to pieces all over the shore. Clear to see there's no use in believing this boat it won't float any more. Now the tide it rises again takes the wreckage with it out to the sea. Something good in the way that it happens, washed the boat and a soul and we're free. Now I stand there, void of my resistance, in the wisdom of the stillness I see. Now I stand there, horizon in the distance, surrounded by the calm of the sea. Took the medal for rising above the tall waves that keep crashing right in. Couldn't really say any more that you were part of the deafening din. Now I stand there, void of my resistance, in the wisdom of the stillness I see. Now I stand there, horizon in the distance, surrounded by the calm of the sea. Ooo little boat is waiting to sail on the tides again. Out on peaceful waters to the place where the winds begin.
Track Name: There We Are (Do It Right or Not at All)
THERE WE ARE (DO IT RIGHT OR NOT AT ALL) [3:41] Now, these thirteen years are somehow. Baby you tear me apart. Maybe you do sing me like songs in the wind. Then I'm flying again. There we are, there we are. What do you think of the people that we've been so far? There we are, there we are. What do you think about doing it right or not at all? Damn, you've got my heart in your hand. Holding me close for the dance. There we are, there we are. What do you think of the people that we've been so far? There we are, there we are. What do you think about doing it right or not at all? Dance! Dance for the rest of the way. Swirlin' the nights and twirlin' the days. Two-steppin' our lives away. There we are. What do you think of the people that we've been so far? There we are, there we are. What do you think about doing it right? There we are, there we are. What do you think of the people that we've been so far? There we are. What do you think about doing it right or not at all? What do you think about doing it right or not at all? What do you think of the people that we've been so far?
Track Name: My Wallet Is a House of Cards
MY WALLET IS A HOUSE OF CARDS [3:19] My wallet is a house of cards. I'm the next generation of die-hards. Bought three flat-screens and a brand new gun. Swiped my card and the deal was done, yeah! Oh yeah! Ain't that crazy! The first one, I owe it to the second one, I owe it to the third one, I owe it to the fourth one yeah! My hunter brain says “you've got to get it”. The harvester in me collects it. I'm working three jobs from five to eleven. My credit card's my key to heaven, yeah? Oh yeah, do you think I'm crazy? Then watch these shows. These beautiful girls on TV, showing me things I must buy. For a “successful” life, for a “man of the world” and prescription drugs keep me high. Uuuuuh! The first one, I owe it to the second one, I owe it to the third one, I owe it to the fourth one yeah! The more I spend the better is my rating. Buying new stuff is my liberating. Debt collection is the primal scream. Yes I'm living the American dream, yeah! Oh yeah, I'm going crazy! Huh! My wallet is a house of cards. My wallet is a house of cards. My wallet is a house of cards. My wallet is a house of cards. The first one, I owe it to the second one, I owe it to the third one, I owe it to the fourth one, I owe it to the fifth one, I owe it to the sixth one, I owe it to the seventh one, I owe it to the eighth one, I owe it to the ninth one, I owe it to the.
Track Name: Ordinary Memory
ORDINARY MEMORY [4:43] I didn't care a little bit 'bout the way you broke this heart of mine. Then I did and I hid it in a place you couldn't touch me where it hurt so bad I wanna cry. Hide away the heart you broke. Way back then, way back when, I was so much less of me. Now it's an ordinary memory, just an ordinary memory, it's an ordinary memory of my time with you. I picked myself right off the ground. The pieces of my heart were there and I stood 'cause I could and I headed for the door way up where the air was so much clearer then. It doesn't matter anyway 'cause I'm here and I'm near all the things that count right now and it's an ordinary memory, just an ordinary memory, it's an ordinary memory that I keep of you. Did you know? There is so much more inside of me now that I have finally set you free. Can you see? I am right here where I need to be. You couldn't take myself away from me. I gave my heart away again to someone who holds it closer now. It's so real, that it feels like this heart is whole again and you're an ordinary memory, just an ordinary memory. You're an ordinary memory that I keep with me. Did you know? There is so much more inside of me now that I have finally set you free. Can you see? I am right here where I need to be. You couldn't take myself away from me and you're an ordinary memory, just an ordinary memory. You're an ordinary memory that I keep with me. I didn't care a little bit 'bout the way you broke this heart of mine. Then I did. Yes I did.
Track Name: While I'm Still Standing Here
WHILE I'M STILL STANDING HERE [3:44] While I'm still standing here, while I've still got the time, while I still sing my own songs and the words are mine. Then I've still got a chance. It's easy to believe, than try to read between the lines. If I weigh your words in gold will your promise hold? If your reasons still rhyme. Then I'll take my chance on you. How could I ever let it go and follow the wasted line? If you would tell me what I know, would you be wasting time? I am easily deceived by the secrets of a smile. If I count the signs that I ignored or the writings on the doors that I opened. You would think I must be blind. Easy to blame it all on me and follow the wasted line. If we have always been so sure, then how did we get this far? How did we get this far. How did we get this far? While I'm still standing here, while I've still got the time, while I still sing my own songs and my reasons still rhyme. Then I've still got a chance [while I'm still standing here]. Then I've still got a chance [while I'm still standing here]. Then I've still got a chance [while I'm still standing here]. Then I've still got a chance.
Track Name: All Your Thoughts
ALL YOUR THOUGHTS [3:29] All your thoughts used to be mine but then your mind unravelled again. Sure it's not gone unrecognized the weight of your lies entangled in sin. To apologize it's only fair. They were never my crosses to bear. I could be rowing upstream like in my dream unleashing the wind. To apologize it's only fair. They were never my crosses to bear. If I had my way, we would be moving on. But the ties they're bound oh so strong. To apologize it's only fair. They were never my crosses to bear. All my thoughts used to be mine, but then my mind unravelled again. And my mind unravelled again. And my mind entangled in sin.
Track Name: Who's Sorry Now
WHO'S SORRY NOW [3:32] It's the end, all the passion's turning into pain. Tears remain, fragments of a thousand plans we made. When the love you get and what you expected ain't quite the same. Tell me who's sorry now, there's a heart breaking. Do you feel the restless moments? So sure, knowing what is right and what is wrong. Never before, so much damage has been done. When the things we do and the things we say are not the same. Tell me who's sorry now, there's a heart breaking. Do you feel the restless moments? Who's sorry now, there's no love for taking. Do you feel the restless moments? When you're forsaken! It's the end, all the passion's turning into pain. Tears remain, fragments of a thousand plans we made. When the things we do and the things we say are not the same. Who's sorry now, there's a heart breaking. Do you feel the restless moments? Who's sorry now, who's sorry now. Everybody's waiting. Who's sorry now, who's sorry now. Yes we all are forsaken.
Track Name: Time for Deliverance
TIME FOR DELIVERANCE [4:23] It's my time for deliverance no I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. It's my time for deliverance no I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. It's my time for deliverance; no I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. It's my time for deliverance; no I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. I've seen worlds unfolding endless joy. Tell me what could be better than love anyway? I don't need a choice. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. Yeah Sounds! High fidelity! I wanna hear guitars, bass and saxophone play that melody. It's my fight for resilience no I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. It's my fight for resilience no I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. So right now, I hope you can forgive. I'm on the road to my redemption, love is my saving grace. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. Feel the power of forgiveness no I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. Feel the power of forgiveness no I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. It's my time for deliverance; no I ain't giving up on love. I ain't giving up. It's my time for deliverance; no I ain't giving up - no! It's my time.
