about

Debut solo project of soulman Peter B from Brisbane, Australia. The album is a collection of songs written on the road and at home while he took a year off to travel, work and sing. London, Vietnam, Thailand, France, Italy and Spain are some of the places that these songs were first conceived.

The music of Peter B & The Homeless Souls is about love & loss, pleasure & pain, peace & justice, and faith & doubt. Whether it's at a humble West End cafe, major festival, or on Triple J, they like to keep it soulful.

'..a cruisy blend of Ben Harper and Jack Johnson with a dollop of Stevie Wonder'

Peter B & The Homeless Souls Brisbane, Australia

When our friend's mum heard that we were playing at his sister's birthday party, she said 'You tell those guys their souls have a home'. Thank you, Mrs Manning. We hope so.

Track Name: Hurting Everybody
So it goes
Another story of a broken family
Who's to know
That this fairytale wan't all it seemed
So we go
Through the reasons like it's never meant to be
All I know...

Is that I'm
Hurting Everybody I love
Trying to escape from this place
Losing everything I have
Can you deliver me from this mess?

Take your time
Life is not a series of happy meals
It's alright
To be lonely, late, poor & free
Just to find
Who we are and what we really need
Otherwise...

We'll end up
Hurting everybody we love
Trying to escape from this place
Losing everything we have
Tell me who'll deliver me from this mess?

No one
No one
Will ever know you see
Not you
Not me
It won't be written down in history
I gave
My all
You were all that you thought you could be
As we
Ignore
The very essence of you and me

Is that I'm
Hurting Everybody I love
Try to escape from this place
Losing everything we have
Can you deliver me from this mess?

I'm hurt...
Track Name: Good People
Open up the newspaper you know what I read?
Changing our laws so we can detain refugees
Saying border security's a good thing to have
We're just good people trying to protect God's land

Turning on the TV screen you know what I see?
Sending my brothers sisters to die in the name of peace
Saying when all these 'evil' people are taken down
We're gonna teach them how to be good just like us. Dude, look around.

When I was young, Mama always said
When you grow up be like Jesus, He's a peace lovin' man
So i vow to God never to be 'good' again
Coz being 'good' is giving my Jesus a bad name

Rocked up to the church house well you know who I met?
It's a private table of world leaders plotting in the Lord's name
So with a help of a friend we turn the table upside down
Say we're gonna have to ask you 'good people' to leave my father's house

When I was young, Mama always said
When you grow up be like Jesus, He's a peace lovin' man
So i vow to God never to be 'good' again
Coz being 'good' is giving my Jesus a bad name

Bush, Blair, Howard if you ever hear this song
Know that my Jesus he'd be singing along
He'd be crying his heart out everytime you oppress a man
So you won't get his vote as part of your 'good' plan

When I was young, Mama always said
When you grow up be like Jesus, He's a peace lovin' man
So i vow to God never to be 'good' again
Coz being 'good' is giving my Jesus a bad name

When I was young, Mama always said
When you grow up be like Jesus, He's a peace lovin' man
So i vow to God never to be 'good' again
Coz being 'good' is giving my Jesus a bad name

Being 'good' is giving my Jesus a bad name
Being 'good' is giving my Jesus a bad name
Track Name: If You Left Me
Once again
You have come to me with all your
Doubts and fears
Wondering if we'll ever make it
To the end
Come on, honey

I don't make no empty promises, no
If you left me for the world
I will follow you til the end of time
If you left me for the world

Lost and found
Why you wanna go back there for
Turn around
So much yet for us to learn so
Come on now
Didn't you here me?

I don't make no empty promises, no
If you left me for the world
I will follow you til the end of time
If you left me for the world

If you left me
Baby if you left me
If you left me
Baby if you left me

If you left me
Baby if you left me
If you left me
Baby if you left me

I don't make no empty promises, no
If you left me for the world
I will follow you til the end of time
If you left me for the world
Track Name: Far From Home
Maybe time will heal all things
Maybe it's just gonna pass you by
Maybe time will not do a thing
Maybe this time you will make it right

Far form home
So long to go
To find where you belong
Far from home

Maybe there's a place for you
Half way 'round this crazy world
Maybe it's just a phase for you
Or you could treat it like a precious pearl

Mm Mm
It's so cold
Yeah Eh
The rain and snow
Sometimes
You feel the sun
It shines
Still you are...

Far form home
So long to go
To find where you belong
Far from home

Far form home
So long to go
To find where you belong
Far from home
Track Name: Blackstar (Taste The Revolution)
They say you got to burn to shine
Don't be afraid you've come this far
The purest gold must be refined
You'll rise again Blackstar

Against the stronghold of oppression
We'll over come our fears with love
They're gonna taste the revolution
When you rise again Blackstar
Track Name: Not Going Home Tonight
Winding down from another round of
Russian Roulette
Mesmerised
By your own routine of life
Taking time to count the colours
Of the evening sky
Trying to not to feel guilty
Being late for tea

Not going back today
Waitin' all along just to hear you say
Not going home tonight
Coz I'm looking for a friend
Who can give some peace of mind

Fill your mind with another wise-up
Chinese Proverb
Looking forward
To a good game of love
Then you sprain your ankle
Just before the whistle
Trying not to cry
Hidden deep in the crowd

Not going back today
Waitin' all along just to hear you say
Not going home tonight
Coz I'm looking for a friend
Who can give some peace of mind

Not going back today
Waitin' all along just to hear you say
Not going home tonight
Coz I'm looking for a friend
Who can give some peace of mind

Not going back today
Waitin' all along just to hear you say
Not going home tonight
Coz I'm looking for a friend
Who can give some peace of mind
Track Name: Banksia
They play the songs
The ones that make me think of you
And I do
I miss you

I see the stars
The ones that make me dream of you
And I do
I dream of you

These days are hard to bare
Even without a care
I have no peace to share
Without you

When it comes 'round
The day that we were meant to be
Oh I'll be
Holding you

Now there's just me
The me I hope you wanna see
Oh I pray
That you wait

These days are hard to bare
Even without a care
I have no peace to share
Without you

Oh...
You're my Banksia
Oh...
You're my Banksia

These days are hard to bare
Even without a care
I have no peace to share
Without you
Track Name: Still Cry
I still cry for you
Still cry for you
Still cry for you
Yeah, everything's fine
Moved on with life
Still cry for you

A song came on
On my radio
When I was cruising in my car
It said, in time
We can make up our minds...
It's a choice we can make
To forget
All the scars
It's been so long
Really should be strong..er
But I

Still cry for you
Still cry for you
Still cry for you
Yeah, everything's fine
Moved on with life
Still cry for you

It's the little things
That bring back all
Painful memories
The song you sang
Still ringing
Ringing
Ringing in my mind
Captured my heart
With your bitter sweet
Mournful melodies
Gotta let it go
Gotta take control
Nobody knows
That I

Still cry for you
Still cry for you
Still cry for you
Yeah, everything's fine
Moved on with life
Still cry for you
Oh

Still cry, still cry
Still cry, still cry
Still cry, still cry
Still cry, still cry
Still cry, still cry
Still cry, still cry
Still cry, still cry
Still cry, still cry
Oh
Track Name: Mr Chemist Man
Said, 'put your money on the plate'
As he dispenses the grace
Handed me a box of tablets
Said, 'take one son and go in peace'

Mr chemist man
Won't you lift me up
Won't you help me stand
I'm trying the best I can
When the world turns on me
Where could I go?
To whom could I flee?
Help me, Mr chemist man

There's all sorts of illnesses here
Everybody needs some help
How're we gonna cure it
If we don't even know what it is
But I'm trying the best I can

Mr preacher man
Won't you lift me up
Won't you help me stand
I'm trying the best I can
When the world turns on me
Where could I go?
To whom could I flee?
Help me, Mr preacher man

Mr chemist man
Won't you lift me up
Won't you help me stand
I'm trying the best I can
When the world turns on me
Where could I go?
To whom could I flee?
Help me, Mr chemist man
Track Name: Pleasure In The Pain
A man can read a thousand books
Never learn to read between the lines
A man can take a thousand photographs
Never really see the light
We can travel round the world a thousand times
Never find a home on this earth
One day we'll live a thousand years
Never really learn to live

I'm a man
I'm a man
Won't let you down again
No no
Understand
Understand
There's pleasure in the pain
Oh yeah
Oh Lord yes

I have said a thousand prayers
Never learn nothing about grace, no
You can go to a thousand churches
Never learn nothing 'bout forgiveness

I'm a man
I'm a man
Won't let you down again
No no
Understand
Understand
There's pleasure in the pain
Oh yeah

Be a man
Be a man
Don't let her down again
No no
Understand
if you can
There's pleasure in the pain
Oh...
