In 2004 Guy brought out his first CD called “Keep On Watching.” It features ten of Guy’s songs including “Here I Go,” which was written with Francis Rossi and another written with Grammy Award winning writer, Roger Cook called “Each Time You Smile.” All the songs on the CD have a “watching” or “looking at” theme in the lyric. Francis Rossi recorded his version of "Here I Go" which is featured on his solo album called "One Step At A Time" which was released in 2010.

Track Name: Keep On Watching
KEEP ON WATCHING
WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN
'CAUSE OUT THERE IN THE CITY
AN OLD MAN PROWLS
HE'S GOT NO PLACE TO GO NO GIRL TO LOVE
JUST AN EMPTY LIFE NO ROOF ABOVE
TO STOP THE RAIN FROM HITTING HOME AGAIN
HE KNEW A LADY
WHO GAVE HIM TIME
SHE UP AND LEFT HIM
WITHOUT A SIGN
NOW HE ROAMS THE STREET LOOKING LEFT AND RIGHT
TIMES ARE GETTING HARD AND THE MONEY'S TIGHT
BUT NO ONE GIVES A DAMN

HE WENT ALONG WITH A SONG
AND A GLANCE OF HOW IT USED TO BE
LIVED HIS LIFE LIKE AND OLD ROCK N ROLLER
HAD A DOG AND A CIGARETTE HOLDER
KEPT THEM BOTH IN A BAG ON HIS SHOULDER
AND ON AND ON HE'D GO
Track Name: The Rain Has Stopped
THE RAIN HAS STOPPED ITS FALLING
THE SUN IS OUT THIS MORNING
I WATCH YOU LIE BESIDE ME
SOON YOU’LL WAKE UP
START ANOTHER DAY
AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY
EVERYTHING IS TURNING OUT
THE WAY IT’S MEANT TO BE

OH SILENTLY YOU SLEEP
‘TIL THE MUSIC START TO PLAY
THEN WE GET UP
START ANOTHER DAY

YOU’VE GOT A LOT OF LOVE TO GIVE
DON'T HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY

NOW IT’S THE MORNING AFTER
SWEET ECHOES OF YOUR LAUGHTER
I SEE A SMILE COME ON YOUR FACE
YOU START TO STIR THEN WE EMBRACE

OH HOLDING ON SO TIGHT
IN THE SUNLIGHT OF OUR ROOM
THEN WE GET UP
START ANOTHER DAY
AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY
EVERYTHING IS TURNING OUT
THE WAY IT’S MEANT TO BE

YOU’VE GOT A LOT OF LOVE TO GIVE
DON'T HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY
Track Name: Here I Go
HAD A LITTLE BIT OF LOVE ALONG THE WAY
HAD A LITTLE LOVE ALONG THE WAY
WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE TIMES WE USED TO HAVE
WILL I LOOK BACK WITHOUT REGRET?

HERE I GO DON’T STOP ME
SOMETHING STRANGE HAS GOT ME
IN A SPIN I’M FALLING TO THE GROUND
LIKE A BABY CRYING
LIKE A LOVER LYING
I’LL FIND MY WAY IN THE END

COULD HAVE SHOWN A BIT OF FEELING HALF THE TIME
COULD HAVE SHOWN YOU I WAS FEELING FINE
BUT DID IT EVER GET TO SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY
AND WILL IT FOLLOW ME AROUND?

ONE STEP CLOSER TO A RIVER FLOWING
PAST A WORN OUT POSTER SAYING
DON’T LOOK BACK!
Track Name: I Promise That
I PROMISE THAT
Words & Music Guy Johnson

I SEE YOU WALKING DOWN THE STREET
WHEN YOU TURN MY WAY
YOU KNOW HOW MY HEART WILL LEAP
LET ONE THING BE UNDERSTOOD
I MIGHT APPEAR A LITTLE MORE KEEN THAN I SHOULD
I’LL NEVER FALL IN LOVE

I’VE BEEN IN THIS PLACE BEFORE
I’VE HAD MY FEELINGS
SCATTERED UPON THE FLOOR
THERE’S NO NEED TO SACRIFICE
I’VE MADE A PLAN TO LISTEN TO MY ADVICE
I’LL NEVER FALL IN LOVE
I PROMISE THAT

I DON’T WANT TO THINK ABOUT
A NOTION OF A BROKEN HEART
WHEN EVERY NIGHT
I NEED YOU CLOSER TO ME
NO GOOD ME PRETENDINGI DON’T WANT YOU
WHEN WE ARE APART
THERE’S NO TURNIGN BACK
I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO MY ADVICE

WHILE WISHING UPON A STAR
I’M WONDERING HOW IT IS
THAT WE CAME SO FAR
YOU’RE WEAVING OUT A MAGIC SPELL
I’M FALLING FOR IT HOOK LINE
I KNOW YOU CAN TELL
I NEVER SAW IT COMING
UNTIL I FELL
I’LL NEVER FALL IN LOVE
I PROMISE THAT
Track Name: She's Only Sleeping
SHE’S ONLY SLEEPING
WORDS AND MUSIC GUY JOHNSON


WE WERE ALWAYS HAVING FUN
OH THE DAY HAD JUST BEGUN
ALL THE HEARTACHES OF THE NIGHT
FADED WITH THE MORNING SUN
COULD IT BE A DREAM SO REAL
HEAVEN KNOWS THE WAY I FEEL
IT CAN TAKE ME BY THE HAND
AND CAN LEAD ME THERE

OH SHE’S ONLY SLEEPING
IN THIS DREAM OF MINE
I DON’T EVER WANT TO WAKE
I JUST WANT HER ALL THE TIME
I CAN SEE HER SMILE
I CAN SMELL HER HAIR
EVEN THOUGH SHE’S CROSSED THAT LINE
BETWEEN HERE AND THERE

I RECALL A TIME SO SWEET
SHE WOULD KNOCK ME OFF MY FEET
WHEN SHE’D LOOK AT ME A FROWN
FOR SOME STUPID THING I’D DONE
WE WERE ALWAYS HAVING FUN
BUT WE KNEW THE TIME WOULD COME
WHEN HE’D HER BY THE HAND
AND WOULD LEAD HER THERE

OH SHE’S ONLY SLEEPING….

I SOMETIMES THINK I HEAR
HER KNOCKING AT MY DOOR
I FIND IT HARD TO UNDERSTAND
SHE WON’T BE HERE NO MORE
EVREYDAY THEY SAY IT’S EASIER TO BEAR
THEY MAY HAVE THE ANSWER
BUT I DON’T KNOW WHICH WAY TO TURN
