All lyrics are taken from record sleeves, music books and fan club publications. None have been transcribed.
Some lyrics have never been published - this includes the early Johnny And The Self Absuers tracks,
a small number of B-sides, and the albums Our Secrets Are The Same and Cry. Transcriptions of the later two
do exist - but I can't vouch for their accuracy - so they are not included.
Each song page features the composers, background information about the song, the lyrics, and extensive links back into the discography.

The entire list of songs is a combination of all of the above - all on one page. Each variation of the song is
listed, with links back into the discography. This section is mainly for reference and is designed to be easily printed.
