I Run Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : When We Were Small

I run I run far from
You to the apple tree in my yard
With my dress all bundled up in my hands
Dirt on my feet I am dreaming again
I run I run I run far from
You to the lilac tree in my yard
no more swing set for the girl who is all grown up
no more tea parties parades or mothers in love
I hold my breath past the cemetery
My brother wins he can hold it much longer then me
Gravel roads make car keys rattle on steering wheels
Children and horses old barns and old automobiles
I run I run I run far from
You to the watered streets of Oregon
With a coffee cup half full in my hands
And I'm praying my savior would
Just place a gun in my hands
I run I walk I lie far from
Freaks and lying cheats on the tip of my tongue
The moon hides in the sky behind rows of tree tops
And I'm wishing I was somewhere up there
With the mermaids and stars
I run I run far from
Reality to escape who I've become
Insanity is close at my back
And I'm getting rather numb from the snakes
Who have blurred my vision

Charlotte Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : When We Were Small

Charlotte you're not getting any younger
Look at how much you've changed
Charlotte you used to be much happier
But it's not you that's to blame
Charlotte you let him push you round
And you're falling apart at the seams
One day he'll get just what he deserves
And you can be yourself once again

I heard the two of you yelling last night
Him threatening you once again
I heard the gun shattering out from your house
I saw him dead on the chair
Charlotte go now and drive far from this town
And I'll tell the cops everything

How I saw him stumbling late in the night
And take his own life recklessly

Have You Seen My Love? Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : When We Were Small

Have you seen my love?
Is he far away?
Have you seen the one for me?
His face lights up my day
I won't let one boy steal a kiss or call me his
Instead I'll wait for his voice to call out and carry these daydreams away

Have you seen my love?
Is he far away?
Have you seen the one for me?
I won't let him get him get away
Please tell him that I'm waiting for him
Praying for him
Night and day
For now I'll be a lonely girl longing for his sweet embrace

Please tell him that I'm waiting for him
Praying for him
Night and Day
For now I'll be a lonely girl just long for his sweet embrace

Bicycle Tricycle Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : When We Were Small

Bicycle tricycle take me far with
My hands on your handlebars. I can't
Be homecoming queen for every boy
That falls in and out of love with me.
I won't look back
I've been here before
I've been here before
I'll turn my back
Whatever it takes to let him go
Flower dress strawberry red
I must confess you're my safety pin
Hold me together hide me well
So he cannot tell the state that I am in
I won't look back
I've been here before
I've been here before
I'll turn my back
Whatever it takes to let him go
Roller skates figure eights
Roll me away and I won't complain
I'll bring my raincoat boots and umbrella
So he can't ever rain on my parade

Let Myself Fall Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

I let myself fall
I let myself fall
I let myself fall
I let myself fall
In love with you

There's no turning back
There's no turning back
Since I let myself
Fall in love with you

Now I picture things
Now I picture things
Wedding gowns and
Wedding rings
Since I let myself
Fall in love with you

I Play Music Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

When I was young
I did it my way
I did it my way and I still do
Held my head up high
Asking god for answers and begging him to tell me what
To do

So I play music that's what I do
When I sing I lose myself
There's nothing more I'd rather do
Lord knows I've tried everything else

When I finished school
I took the highway
I took the highway looking for you
Never thought that i
Would ever find you; that you'd be looking for me too

And when you love me, you love me well
When I'm with you I lose myself
There's nothing more I would rather do
Than spend the rest of my life loving you

When I was young
I did it my way
I did it my way and I still do

So I play music that's what I do
And when I sing I lose myself
There's nothing more I'd rather do
Lord knows I've tried everything else

Red Rover Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

Red rover, red rover, send Mary right over
Schoolbooks in her hand and a shawl over her shoulders
And let her run, run as fast as she can
Don't let her grow up to be like her mother
Heart so unconvinced and a world so undiscovered
And asking for forgiveness, not knowing how to forgive

In time, just let her go
In time, she's beautiful
If you hold her back she may never know

Red rover, red rover, send Daniel right over
Schoolbooks in his hand and a coat over his shoulders
And let him run, run as fast as he can
Don't let him grow up to be like his father
Heart so set in stone and a smile so undercover
And opening the door to love, never letting love in

In time, just let him go
In time, he's beautiful
If you hold him back he may never know

See All My Things Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

In a little while I'll feel better
Gonna travel around the world
Gonna see it all

Gonna go to Paris, maybe Rome
But I'll feel better miles away from home,
Gotta figure some things out

So sell all my things, I'm not coming home
There's nothing there to keep me there
Just heartache and panic and worries and things that'll bring me down
My head feels much clearer being here

In a little while I'll feel better
Gonna spill my heart to every stranger in every town
I'll visit castles in Ireland, have some fella play the violin and play a song for me

So sell all my things, I'm not coming home
There's nothing there to keep me there
Just heartache and panic and worries and things that'll bring me down
My head feels much clearer being here

Crazy Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

Crazy, crazy is what they've all said
Craziness lives in my head
Craziness lies in my bed

Worry, worrying about everything
Worrying it makes me insane
So much it drives me away

Lonely, loneliness follows me around
Loneliness drags me down
Still lonely with others around

One More Day Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

One more day
Just one more day then I'm done
One more car ride and
One more rising of the sun

Then I'll jump so high
Angels will catch my fall
I'll jump so high
Angels will catch my fall

I had my chance and I just showed it to the door
I won't apologize to myself anymore

So I'll jump so high
Angels will catch my fall
I'll jump so high
Angels will catch my fall

One more day
Just one more day then I'm done
No more failures and
No more feeling alone

All My Life Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

I've been waiting all my life
I've been waiting for you to come
I've traveling and wandering
Alone on my own for too long

I swear I tried to convince myself
It would be much easier just being alone
But after running circle after circle
I'm tired of being on my own

I've been waiting all my life
I've been waiting for you to come
I've been traveling and wandering
Alone on my own for too long

I wish I could have met your brother
I would tell him how much I am in love
I swear I'll ask him question after question
Confessions about you growing up

I thank God for blessing me
Well beyond I could have thought
And reminding me how good life can be
When you let yourself fall into his love

Cuz I've been waiting all my life
I've been waiting for you to come

You And Me Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

You and me
Me and you
There's so much that we've been through,
Through it all I've come to understand God's love.
And if tomorrow never comes
Know this twice, just know this once.
Knowing you has made me able to go on.

You and me
Me and you
There couldn't be a better two,
To be blessed and know the meaning of true love.
And if you leave me I'll feel scared,
Fall apart feel so unprepared.
But I dare to make it trough all on my own.
Yes I dare to make it trough on my own.

Tell Me How Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

How am I supposed to know what love is really like,
When, I've never even been in love before?
Aren't you supposed to love yourself before
You can understand how to love someone after all?
How can I find a way to keep my mother safe
From the boogie man who hides under the stairs?
How can I find a way to take this breath away
When he's gently sleeping soundly next to her?
Oh how? Oh how? Oh how? Oh how can I save her?
How am I to live this life when the only certainty
Is that death is waiting for me at the end?
And every day that passes I know time is running out
And I fear that I may fail the life I've been given
Oh how? Oh how? Tell me how? Oh how am I supposed to live?
How am I to define what faith is to a child
When the only explanation lies within?
How am I to tell them if they never follow Christ
That heaven doesn't hold a place for them?
Oh how? Oh how? Tell me how when I'm no better than them

Gradually Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

Gradually
I will get wiser
I will get stronger
I will be bolder
I will not settle
I will fight back and
I will stand up or
I will sit back

All this time you thought
I was weak when
I was just pretending
I was just pretending then

All this time you
Made me believe that
I should be sorry
I should be sorry

Gradually
I will outrun you
I will outgrow you
I will ignore you
I will see clearer
I'll overcome and
I will acknowledge how
Far i have come

All this time you thought
I was weak when
I was just pretending
I was just pretending then

All this time you
Made me believe that
I should be sorry
You should be sorry
For making me fall

Loo da da da da da...

Gradually
I will get older and
I will get wiser and
I will move slower
I will see clearer
I'll overcome and
I will acknowledge how
Far i have come

All this time
You thought i was weak when
I was just pretending and
I was just pretending and

All this time
You made me believe that
I should be sorry
You should be sorry for
Making me fall

Loo da da da da da...

Dialogue Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : Only With Laughter Can You Win

Can you help me
Figure out
All of these things
I'm restless I
Feel reclusive
Holding on by a string
No I can't I'm
Just as broken I'm
Just as damaged as you
I'm so tired and
Uninspired and
Dying in this living hell

Where do I go?

I can't walk in a
A straight line, I
Don't know what I'm heading for
Just keep trying and
No more lying
To yourself anymore

Where do we go?
Nobody knows

Since You've Been Around Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

I'm wandering
I'm crawling
I'm two steps away from falling
I just can't seem to get around
I'm heavy
I'm weary
I'm not thinking clearly
I just can't seem to find solid ground
Since you've been around

I'm running
I'm hiding
I'm afraid you'll never find me
because I've always felt lost in the crowd
I'm sinking
I'm drowning
I'm so afraid of losing
my head's been spinning round and round
since you've been around.

I'm foolish and crazy
I just think that maybe
I've got a lot of things to figure out
I'm winning
I'm losing
I'm afraid of never choosing
this heart of mine was so beaten down
before you came around

Pretty Dress Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

Put your pretty dress on
it's time for you to go to the dance
tie your hair in ribbons and lace
and wear pearls round your neck
And all the pretty princes will see you
All the pretty princes will see you
Some day
Some day

Put your red boots on
it's time for you to walk home from school
every one will laugh
they'll point fingers at you
they'll be cruel
but cover up your ears and don't listen
because you'll know much better than them
some day
some day

and they'll wave to you
and they'll wave to you

put your red coat on
and walk with a light in the woods
if it gets dark don't get scared
there's so much waiting for you
cover up your tears and don't show them
cause you'll know much better than them
some day
some day

and they'll wave to you
and they'll wave to you
and they'll wave to you
and they'll wave to you

cause they don't see you like i see you
if they did, they'd see
the nice little girl whose
grown up to become homecoming queen

put your pretty dress on
put your red boots on

and they'll wave to you
and they'll wave to you
and we'll wave to you
and we'll wave to you

put your pretty dress on
put your red boots on
put your red coat on
put your pretty dress on
put your pretty dress on
put your red coat on
put your red boots on
put you pretty dress

Loose Ends Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

She's like a sweater, old and used
Tossed and overworn too many times through
And she used to look so bright
All her seams were tightly tied

She's like a sweater that's just worn out
Fading, coffee stained, and out of style
And she's just about to run
Before her stitches come undone

She's gonna pack her bags & leave
No more loose, unravelled seams
She is young & she still has her confidence
And it's not too late to tie up those loose ends

She's like a fire in the rain
His words will damp her eyes & heat her veins
And the love she thought she found was just another
Hand-me-down of dwindled grace

She's gonna pack her bags & leave
No more loose, unravelled seams
She is young & she still has her confidence
And it's not too late to tie up those loose ends

She's found a refuge for her face
While dividing her unfortunate displace
Now she stands too high for them to ring her dry
She's found her way

She's gonna pack her bags & leave
No more loose, unravelled seams
She is young & she still has her confidence
And it's not too late to tie up those loose ends

It Don't Matter To The Sun Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

It don't matter to the sun
If you go or if you stay
No, the sun is gonna rise, gonna rise
Shine down on another day
There will be tomorrow
Even if you choose to leave
Cuz it don't matter to the sun no, no
It matters to me

It ain't gonna stop the world
If you walk out that door
This old world just keeps spinning round, spinning round
Like it did the day before
Cuz to them it makes no difference
It just keeps on keeping time
Cuz it ain't gonna stop the world no
But it'll be the end of mine

So what can I say?
What can I do?
I'm still in love.
Why aren't you?

Cuz it don't matter to the moon
If your not in my life
No the moon will just keep hanging round, hanging round
Like its just another night
Who find another place to shine
On some other lovers dreams
Cuz it don't matter to the moon no, no
It matters to me

Cuz it don't matter to the moon no, no
But it matters to me

Guess It May Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

I'm still learning what love is
Everyday I wake up in your arms
I'm still trying to figure out what works
How to set off all your alarms

I'm still learning what love is
When I'm walking close to you
The best way to hold your hand in mine
The best way to comfort you

Guess it may
Guess it may
Guess it may
Guess it may
It may always be this way

I'm still learning what love is
Every time you look at me that way
I'm still trying to figure out just how
You can still look at me the same

Guess it may
Guess it may
Guess it may
Guess it may
It may always be this way

Even though i may not get it right
All the time i will always try
And i will always stand right by your side

I'm still learning what love is
Everyday I wake up in your arms
I'm still trying to figure out what works

Guess it may
Guess it may
Guess it may
Guess it may
Guess it may
Guess it may
It may always be this way

Let It Be Me Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

I'm blessed the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you
Let it be me

Don't take this heaven from one
If you must cling to someone
Now and forever
Let it be me

Cause each time we meet, love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely
Tell you love me only
Now and forever
Let it be me

Each time we meet, love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
What would life be?

So never leave me lonely
Tell you love me only
And that you'll always
Let it be me

So never leave me lonely
Tell you love me only
And that you'll always
Let it be me
Let it be me
Let it be me

Clear As A Bell Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

Boy you said some pretty things
Then you close the door on me
Then you left me wondering to myself

Where does all the romance go
Like we find in picture shows?
Maybe I'm feeling sorry for myself

And I know that time will tell
Clear as a bell
You were not the one
I'm sure I'll convince myself
To get over you
Maybe it will come
When the day is done

I hope that you kick yourself
Holding hands with someone else
Then you realise that she's not the one
Some day some boy will fall
In love with all my flaws
And he sure will be the lucky one

And I know that time will tell
Clear as a bell
You were not the one
I'm sure I'll convince myself
To get over you
Maybe it will come
When the day is done

And I know that time will tell
Clear as a bell
You were not the one
I'm sure I'll convince myself
To get over you
Maybe it will come
When the day is done

Say What You Want Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

Say what you want to say
Play this game your way
It's over anyway
You didn't give it up for love

Take what you want to take
Take back the words you'll say
They never mattered anyway
You didn't give it up for love
No you didn't give, give it up for love

When I look through the photographs
And I see the smile on your face
I remember how you used to feel
And I see how much has changed

Say what you want to say
I'll carry on the same
Maybe you'll look back someday
You didn't give it up for love
No you didn't give, give it up for love

When I look through the photographs
And I see the smile on your face
I remember how you used to feel
And I see how much has changed

When I look through the photographs
And I see the smile on your face
I remember how you used to feel
And I see how much has changed

Say what you want to say
Play this game your way
You will know someday
You didn't give it up for love
No you didn't give, give it up for love
No you didn't give, give it up for love

Death Came And Got Me Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

I can't, I can't stop crying
Everyday I'm so afraid
Afraid of dying
Death already came and got me
Cause I'm not living...
I'm not living anyway...

And who am I supposed to be?
Everybody seems to see except for me
Who cares anyway....
Cause when it's over,
It's all over, and what you gain you throw away

When will love ever find me?
All my life all I've craved is to be seen
Who cares anyway...
Cause when it's over,
All that matters is the love you gave away

Tomorrow Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : If Songs Could Be Held

What if I told you
I could lose you?
If I waited,
Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow
May be too late

Birds fly above you
Love is around you
I would like to be too
Forever, forever and ever
With you

I would follow you
Anywhere you are going to
Tomorrow, forever, always

And if you were to
Sail across the ocean blue
I would like to sail with you
I'd follow, I'd follow, I'd follow
You home

I would follow you
Anywhere you are going to
Tomorrow, forever, always

I would follow you
Oh, anywhere you are going to
Tomorrow, forever,
Tomorrow, forever,
Tomorrow, forever, always

If This City Never Sleeps Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : These Friends Of Mine

Oh, at night when I sleep
Oh, the dreams come to me
Make me believe that my life is not my own
And if life were like my dreams
All the things I would see
I would be so much braver than I know

Mmmmm

No I can’t understand
What it means to be a man
And to lead a woman from her home
And if love were indeed
All the things I believe
Then I guess I would never feel alone

Mmmmm

Oh, what are you afraid of?

If this city never sleeps
Does it mean that no one dreams?
If that’s so then I guess I’m coming home

Why Waste More Time? Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : These Friends Of Mine

Why waste your time?
There is nothing left
The voices in your head tell you to do it
No one will care, no one will know
Everyone just looks out for themselves

It's so hard letting go
Letting go of love
It might cause some pain, I know
But pain is all we got

Lalalalalalala

Why waste more time?
Time is all you have
Careful what you say
They'll hold you to it
No one will care, no one will know
Everyone feels sorry for themselves

And it's so hard letting go
Letting go of love
And it might cause some pain I know
But pain is all we got

And it may be the only way to know
If you can get yourself back up

The One I Love Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : These Friends Of Mine
(originally by R.E.M.)

This one goes out to the one I love
This one goes out to the one I've left behind
A simple thought to occupy my mind
This one goes out to the one I love

Fire, fire, fire, fire

This one goes out to the one I love
This one goes out to the one I've left behind
A simple prop to occupy my time
This one goes out to the one I love

Fire, fire, fire, fire
Fire
Fire

Much Farther To Go Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : These Friends Of Mine

New York is lovely in the wintertime
All the sidewalks are white as snow
The buildings, all the people that pass me by
Oh, the smile on his face says he's in love

I took the train all the way to Brooklyn Heights
I remember when you took it there with me
We sat side by side and held hands for some time
We saluted the statue of liberty

And I, I have much farther to go
Everything is new and so unpredictable
I should just kick my hands together and go home
But I'm not sure where that is anymore

Oh, how I wish I could go back in time
To the night when I heard my mother cry
She held me in her arms and we talked for some time
And I sang a song her mother sang to her

It was something about paper dolls and what it meant before
Something about the cross and how her Jesus died for her
Something about love and how it was worth fighting for
I wonder, does love like that exist anymore?

And I, I have much farther to go
I'm so confused
I should just kick my hands together and go home
But I lost my way when I lost you

Sometimes I cry when it's late at night
And you're not there to lay next to me
Morning breaks and the sun warms my face
How I wish it was you warming me

Paper Doll Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : These Friends Of Mine
(originally by Denison Witmer)

Tonight I'm like a paper doll
Dress me in what you wish I had on
And I will not say a thing
I will just keep smiling

Here I am, wordless again
You dress me up different ways
Flat and thin, speechless within
You dress me up different ways
And I just can't be sure I'll ever change

And I do not like the clothes I wear
I'd sooner throw them into the air
But I will not say a thing
I’ll just keep smiling

Here I am, wordless again
You dress me up different ways
Flat and thin, speechless within
You dress me up different ways
And I just can't be sure I'll ever change

Why is it now
That you've cut me out
Of everything I was used to?
Now it's not that I
Stand here, no choice
I will choose not to raise up my voice

Here I am, wordless again
Wordless again
And I just can't be sure I'll ever change

Tonight I’m like a paper doll
Cut from the page that I once lived on
And I will not say a thing
I'll just keep smiling
I'll just keep smiling
I'll just keep smiling
I'll just keep smiling

Kite Song Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : These Friends Of Mine

Oh, tie me to the end of a kite
So I can go and I can go on with my life
And every miracle that passed below be my guiding light
I just want to go away from here

Oh, tie me to the end of a kite
So I can go and I can go on with my life
And every time the wind blows stronger I will feel the spirit rise
I just want to go away from here

Oh, tie me ever tightly by your side
So I may go with you wherever you reside
And anytime the road looks dimmer I will be your guiding light
I just want to go away with you

I just want to go away with you

Songbird Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : These Friends Of Mine
(originally by Fleetwood Mac)

For you they'll be no more crying
For you the sun will be shining
‘Cause I feel that when I'm with you
So right
I know it's right

To you I would give the world
To you I'll never be cold
‘Cause I feel that when I'm with you
So right
I know it's right

And the songbirds are singing like they know this chorus
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before

And I wish you all the love in the world
But most of all I wish it from myself
And the songbirds are singing like they know this chorus
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before
Like never before
Like never before
Like never before

All the way to New York City
And we can get an apartment there
Be closer to our families

We can take my station wagon
Fill it to the brim
And wave goodbye to all our lovely friends
Never to return again

You could write for picture shows
And I could get a job
Waiting tables at a restaurant
Where famous people like to go

We could buy old overcoats
And walk through the snow
All the way around Central Park
Our cheeks as pink as wild roses

We could take the subway home
And stare at our reflections
In the window panes of the trains
And see how much New York has changed us

Say Hello Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : These Friends Of Mine

If I find him
If I just follow
Would he hold me and never let me go?
Would he let me borrow his warm winter coat?
I don't know
I don't know

If I see her
Standing there alone
At the train station three stops from her home
I have half a mind to say what I'm thinking anyway
I don't know
I don't know

There's an airplane in the sky
With a banner right behind
Loneliness is just a crime
Look each other in the eye
And say hello
And say hello

“Hey, there. How you doing?”

These Friends Of Mine Lyrics

Artist : ROSIE THOMAS
Album : These Friends Of Mine

These friends of mine
Live their lives
Spend their time
Hoping to find
Who they are
How they're made
Maybe they'd
Help to find the way

These friends of mine
They have lives
They work hard
To live them right
And when they laugh
It makes me high
They'd take a train
Ten thousand miles
Before they'd fly

These friends of mine
They feel alone
When the shows are over
Don't know where to go
In Philadelphia
At Christmas time
They question love
Wonder why they try

And when the show is over
How I hope that they discover
The joy that they bring
And I hope they remember
This bond we have together
And how they love to sing

These friends of mine
Live in New York
They were raised
In Michigan
They don't know things
They don't hold hands
Guard their hearts
The best they can

And when the show is over
How I hope that they discover
The joy that they bring
And I hope they remember
This bond we have together
How they love to sing
They sure love to sing

Maybe I needed this time
To be reminded for myself
Maybe I needed this time
To be reminded for myself
How I love to sing

Too Many Questions Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

My coffee is cold, and yesterday is stuck with me
And I can't wake up from my sleep
I feel like a grain of salt in the shaker but the day that I meet my maker or
The day that I see my undertaker, ya see...

All I have is too many questions
Is there something someone forgot to mention to me?
But I walk on without hesitation
To my unknown own destination
With the music like syncopation
And explore my own imagi...nation.

How do I know if I am right in why I feel like I do?
And separate the truth from the lies
And why do we only take any action when it comes to our satisfaction
When we only need just a fraction of what we need?

All I have is too many questions
Is there something someone forgot to mention to me?
But I walk on without hesitation
To my unknown own destination
With the music like syncopation
And explore my own imagi...nation.

How do I climb up on out of this funk I'm in and how do I cling to the frame of divine timing?
Why do I doubt sometimes, that of which I know for sure?
And why when I've had enough, do I seem to ask for more?
How do I climb up on out of this funk I'm in and how do I cling to the frame of divine timing?
Why do old habits die so hard, God knows I try and try - and why ask why?

All I have is too many questions
Is there something someone forgot to mention to me?
But I walk on without hesitation
To my unknown own destination
With the music like syncopation
And explore my own imagi...nation.

All I have is too many questions
Is there something someone forgot to mention to me?
But I walk on without hesitation
To my unknown own destination
With the music like syncopation
And explore my own imagi...nation.

Black And Gold Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

Mmm
If the fish swam out of the ocean
And grew legs and they started walking
And the apes climbed down from the trees
And grew tall and they started talking
And the stars fell out of the sky
And my tears rolled into the ocean
And now I'm looking for a reason why
You even set my world into motion

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter
'Cause if you're not really there
Then I don't wanna be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

Mmm

I look up into the night sky
I see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black
I feel the weight of something beyond them
I don't see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn't real

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter
'Cause if you're not really there
Then I don't wanna be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
(Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold, black and gold, black and gold)

Mmm
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter
'Cause if you're not really there
I don't wanna be either
I wanna be, next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

21st Century Life Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

When I was a little boy
Living in the last century
I thought about living in the future
Then it occurred to me
I turned around, the future was now
The future was all around me
Nothing like I had imagined
It was totally confounding
Hey-ohhh

21st century life
I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I got to do today
21st century life
Well what can I say?
The new world's got me feeling so dirty
Think I need to get down and play

Well now I turned on the TV just in time enough to hear what the Pope said, Pope said
And just a few tiny words later
Somebody wants the man dead, oh
Well what about famine and disease
Well they said its too bad (oops)
Because I'm never alone
Its not just a phone
Its a stereo
Hey-ohhh

21st century life
I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I got to do today
21st century life
What can I say?
The new world's got me feeling so dirty
Think I need to get down and play

Now I'm not a little boy
I'm in the 21st century
Well you might think we've come a really long way, but theres still no equality
Mmm hey hey
I watched the news on my computer screen
Talkin' 'bout buying my weed out of a vending machine
You tell me I'm free
Well how can that be
When you're always watching me on the CCTV?

21st century life
I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I got to do today
21st century life
What can I say?
The new world's got me feeling so dirty
Think I need to get down and play

Sick Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

Darling your brow is wet
you've got a fever
darling rest your head
I'll make you a believer
baby come away from the window
I don't want you to see it
the things that you might see
you won't want to repeat it

cause it's a sick sick world
I'll be your medicine
come on take me take me
I'll make you feel better

when your mother bore you
boy did she adore you
she wanted to protect you
from the world she brought you into
but your curiosity
took you by the arm
make sure you take me with you
when you go into the unknown

cause it's a sick sick world
I'll be your medicine
so come on take me take me
I'll make you feel better

it's a sick sick world
I'll be your medicine
just come on take me take me
I'll make you feel better

Waiting For Time Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

Sorry I lost it
Something came over me
Is there a lesson
Somewhere in this
Awful tragedy
You didn't deserve that
Nobody does
Maybe we will make it
Maybe not
Only time can tell you
What you really got

Time is only thing
That can undo
Those things I said
I'm gonna have to wait
'Till you forgave me
In your head
Summer will come
But winters
What I dread

Your disapiontment
Isn't easy to bare
My mind
Is hard awaking up
To find
That you aren't there
Now that you've seen it
My demons revere you
Maybe we'll get better
Maybe worse
Only time will tell us
How much
It really hurts

Time is only thing
That can undo
Those things I said
I'm gonna have to wait
'Till you forgave me
In your head
Summer will come
But winters
What I dread

I dread to think
I've thrown away
The only love
I ever had
Made a really
Stupid mistakes
Makes me really
Fuckin' mad
I wanna see you
Hhappy hun
It's me
That makes you happy
But I know you
Need a minute
Or a month or a year
To forgive me

Time is only thing
That can undo
Those things I said
I'm gonna have to wait
'Till you forgave me
In your head
Summer will come
But winters
What I dread

What I dread [6x]

Cottonmouth Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

It was just an ordinary afternoon
I was sitting in the park
Trying to forget all of my blues
I wanted a little something to spark
And so in god's green earth i did partake
An unusual affair
I forgot my woes while i fell awake
I didn't have a single care
Then i noticed something very wrong
I was so parched i could not sing this song

Cottonmouth, cottonmouth
You're so damn rough
Cottonmouth, cottonmouth
Wooooooooo
Cottonmouth, cottonmouth
Don't know what to do
Cottonmouth, cottonmouth
So in love with you

In what was just an ordinary afternoon
Became complicated
In my intent to drive away my blues
I got discombobulated
I tried to get my cloudy head to think
See I needed a solution
But the only water i could find to drink
Was full of pollution

Cottonmouth, cottonmouth
You're so damn rough
Cottonmouth, cottonmouth
Wooooooooo
Cottonmouth, cottonmouth
Don't know what to do
Cottonmouth, cottonmouth
So in love with you

I need some H2O
Down my throat [x8]

Hot Mess Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

I know you fancy yourself as a sexy bitch
It's in the way that you walk
And do ya kiss your mother with those expensive lips?
You've sure got expensive talk
And well your lavish life might appear delicious
But not particularly nutritious

But you need it don't you baby?
No your nothing without their gazes
They don't love you
They're your strangers
Look how far you have come
You're amazing
You're amazing

Yeah you worked so hard just to shed your shackles
But when you need a tea,
Now every one knows you
And they all talking, but not favorably
If you wipe the oblivion from the mirror
You just might see things a little clearer

But you need it don't you baby?
No your nothing without their gazes
They don't love you
They're your strangers
Look how far you have come
You're amazing
You're amazing

And you wonder why the people can't stop looking
It's exactly what you want us to do
Well everybody's searching for their one hot minute
But we've all got to get a bigger piece of you
Baby, you're a hot hot mess

But you need it don't you baby?
No your nothing without their gazes
They don't love you
They're your strangers
Look how far you have come
You're amazing
You're amazing

Pocket Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

If you stand tall
With your back
To the door
Then it's
Your own fault
When you get knocked
To the floor
You may have
Fooled me once
But I've got
A pretty damn
Good memory

It's a small world
What a type cliché
But it's a small world
How many times can I say
That everything
You do will end up
Coming right back
Around again

And if you don't know
That by now
Then I feel quite
Sorry for you
I'm sorry for you
Yeah
The people
That you keep around
Well
You learn from them
And they learn from you

So keep
Your friends close
And your enemies
In your pocket
Yeah
Keep your friends close
And your enemies
In your pocket

When you just
Might start
To melt them down
I come around
So keep
Your friends close
And your enemies
In your pocket

It's a long haul
To the front of the line
And you get there
In your own sweet time
But there's
Always somebody
Who decides
To cut right
In front of you

A wide eye
Looking for
A ticket to ride
It's a long night
I hope you make it
Out alive
You can't spend
Your whole life
Worrying about
What's behind you

And if you don't know
That by now
Then I feel quite
Sorry for you
I'm sorry for you
Yeah
The people
That you keep around
Well
You learn from them
And they learn from you

So keep
Your friends close
And your enemies
In your pocket
Yeah
Keep your friends close
And your enemies
In your pocket

When you just
Might start
To melt them down
I come around
So keep
Your friends close
And your enemies
In your pocket

And it's
A lively colour
Not black and white
But some people think
They're the ones
Who got it right
In a room so full
Well
You have to be
A little more flexible

And if you don't know
That by now
Then I feel quite
Sorry for you
I'm sorry for you
Yeah
The people
That you keep around
Well
You learn from them
And they learn from you

So keep
Your friends close
And your enemies
In your pocket
Yeah
Keep your friends close
And your enemies
In your pocket

When you
Just might start
To melt them down
I come around
So keep
Your friends close
And your enemies
In your pocket

Cut Me Loose Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

When I hear that bass start to thumpin'
Me and my whole body get to jumpin
I snap my neck, my back and shake my rump and
Just cut it loose, (loose) I just cut it loose (hey, hey)
When the day behind ya leave's you shatterd
I only know one thing that makes it better
So call you girl and boys and get 'em out to (call your girls and call your boys up)
Help you cut it loose, (cut it loose) shake that caboose (oh yeah)

Nothing cuts me loose like the music
I cut a rug up all night long when I hear my favourite song
Nothing cuts me loose like the music
I said it cut me loose it just cut me loose (yeah)

I wanna see you cut it, heyyyy

See that sexy girl over by the bar there (hi)
She said, "hey do you wanna come for a ride in my car yeah?"
(do you wanna come for a ride in my car?)
I sad, "sexy girl are you delirious? I can't leave right now these tunes are serious"
heyeyeaheyaheh
The bass slapped me in the face and I stepped so hard I almost shook the place
Got snare in the air like a cool breeze and those nasty keys are the bee's knees

Nothing cuts me loose like the music
I cut a rug up all night long when I hear my favourite song
Nothing cuts me loose like the music
I said it cut me loose it just cut me loose

I cut a rug up all night long when I hear my favourite song, music
It takes me away and it cut me loose

Sweaty, getting sweaty
Nothing in the world is quite as nice
If you get there early, like say by 10:30
You can get inside the club at half the price
That's cold as ice

It takes me away and it cut me loose, It takes me away

Nothing cuts me loose like the music
It takes me away
Nothing cuts me loose like the music
It takes me away
Just cut me loose (yeah)

Nothing cuts me loose like the music
I cut a rug up all night long when I hear my favourite song
Nothing cuts me loose like the music
I said it cut me loose it just cut me loose

Nothing cuts me loose like the music
I cut a rug up all night long when I hear my favourite song
Nothing cuts me loose like the music
I said it cut me loose it just cut me loose
YEAH!

Sally
With those thick
Caramel theighs
There's something else
Your momma gave you
Those beautiful green eyes

The same kind of green
Like the dollars
That they stick to you
They stick it to you plenty
Cause you know
Just what to do
Up there

Sally
Why you wanna do that
I ain't gonna hurt cha
I ain't cha daddy

Sally
You ain't gotta do that
Need someone to love ya
Not like your daddy

Your daddy taught you
A thing or two
About living
In a cold, cold world
He said he'd treat you
Special like
Called you his little girl

Ooooooh
And i get so red hot mad
Thinking about
That dirty old man
When i see ya up
There dancing
Trying to get that money
While you can

Sally
Why you wanna do that
I ain't gonna hurt cha
I ain't cha daddy

Sally
You ain't gotta do that
Need someone to love ya
Not like your daddy

Sally
Everything's gonna be alright
You don't have to put
On the red light tonight

Why you wanna do that
I ain't gonna hurt cha
I ain't cha daddy

Sally
You ain't gotta do that
Need someone to love ya
Not like your daddy

Clingwrap Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

It's so sticky

You seem to be a lot of mean
But baby you know it just can't be
Oh no
To me you're just to clingy
And now you need to set me free
C'mon and set me free
See I went outside just to take a stroll
And when I came back I had ten missed calls
From you ooooh
And when you're walking down the street doing what you do
And you step into some gum that's stuck to your shoe
That reminds me of you

You must've thought I was a snack
Because you're sticking to me like cling wrap [2x]

You must've thought I was your wife
Because you're trying to run my life
You're causing me a lot of strife
I'm gonna cut you up now let me grab my knife
Where's my knife? where's my knife?
See I got enough friends that could fill a truck up
Now give me some room and just back the fuck up
Like when you're washing you're clothes at the laundermatic
And you pull them out the dryer and they stick like static
That's what you do

You must've thought I was a snack
Because you're sticking to me like cling wrap [2x]

Now listen
I'm gonna need me a pair of pliers
To get you off my back because you've crossed your wires
I need you like I need fifteen spent tires
If I was donald trump then I'd say you're fired
It's the cling wrap

Now see
I don't wanna come off all negative and shit
But some of y'all need to take a hint
So remember when people be dropping hints then take em
Take em and implement em before ya
Before ya peace out so cold and act all crazy
When'd ya get so crazy baby
What? that's wrong

La la la
Your sticky your sticky your sticky
And you're like cling wrap [4x]

Can't Stop This! Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

I got something in my hands that you want
And I am ready to hand it over
I got something that I gave use not enough
And you tell me that you need another
Well I see this is just an issue out control
And you sit there nice and tidily
You where hoping I would be the one to fix your mode
But I am not feeling quite despite

I cant stop this
(feels like I am falling)
I wont drop this
(holding it so carefully)
Do I want this
(my wish is to surrender it)
I cant stop this
(Lalalalalala come sing it, come sing it)

Well it came along right when I needed you
Well at least I thought that I did
See I always know just what I wanna do
But now I don't want you to forbid me

You got me on a leach that's tight
Now I don't know what to write
I don't know where I am going
When I cant see the light
If this parachute wont open
I was never meant to land
If you find my body
Wont you please tell my man

I cant stop this
(feels like I am falling)
I wont drop this
(holding it so carefully)
Do I want this
(my wish is to surrender it)
I cant stop this
(Lalalalalala come sing it, come sing it)

Cant you leave me inculcated
The less I got, the less I can
Would like to thank you for your friendship
You really care
Eyes are open
But I feel like
I am inside a dream
Please wake me up

I wont drop this
Do I want this
I cant stop this (I cant stop this noooo)
I cant stop this
(it feels like I am falling)
I wont drop this
(holding it so carefully)
Do I want this
(my wish is to surrender it)

I got something in my hands that you want [x3]
I got something, I know you want it

Still Hungry Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

Last night a songbird sittling outside my window
He sang a song for me
Last night
all the stars in the sky
they twinkled so brightly
it really was a sight to see
today I spend two hundred and fifty dollars
two hundred and fifty dollars on a pair of jeans
they really looked nice on me
but that means
Ohhh
that for the next two weeks
I'm gonna be scrounging
I never save my money
You see
I finished all the food on my plate
I'm still hungry
and I enjoyed all the food that I ate
Ohhh
But I'm still hungry
Mmmm
I've lived a relatively full life
You shoulda seen some of the things I've seen
I've lived around the world
been a lot of places
I really am lucky
Ohh yeah I'm really lucky ohh
but sometimes
I just can't take it
just can't take it
Ohhhh
I feel so lonely
I'm not ungrateful
I just want more from the life I lead
Ohh won't you give it to me
Ohhhh
I've finished all the food on my plate
I'm still hungry
I'm still hungry
well I ejoyed all the food I ate
and believe me when I say it taste great
I'm still hungry
I finished all the food on my plate
and I enjoyed it
yes it really taste great
but I'm still hungry
I'm still hungry
I'm still hungry
I'm still hungry
I'm still..
hungry

S.A.M.S.P.A.R.R.O. Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

The name is S.A.M.S.P.A. double R.O.-jazam
And I grew up into a man from a baby in a pram
I've got a lot to say, I've got a lot to do
And hopefully very soon I'll be in a town near you
We can party all night, I'll entertain the crowd
If you're anything like me you like to hear it loud
I said Jamaica, Japan, and all around
Just dip your chubby cheeks to my funky sound
The future, I've seen it, I know what its like
And so you better listen up, when I'm kissing the mic
There's lots of robots, machine guns, no air to breathe
So make sure you've got an oxygen tank up your sleeve

The S is for Sexy and the A is for Aggressive
The M is for Music at which I'm quite impressive
The other S is for Seductive and the P for Peaceful
The A is for 'Allo because it's nice to meet you
The reason there's two Rs because I'm twice as rude
And the O for Oh my God I'll put you in the mood
No, no don't wanna be a hipster but a big star
And I wanna see my name tattooed where your tits are
So if you get bored listening to the grey kid
Be prepared to be blown away by a gay kid

Oh shit!
What's your name again, man?
Oh shit!
Do you drive a blue van?
Oh shit!
Haven't I seen you before?
Oh shit!
Making people look stupid on the dance floor?

Party all night
Just party all night
Now baby party all night
Just just party all night [x4]

No End In Sight Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

There's no revolution, everyone's been drugged
Maybe we'd wake up if our life support were unplugged
We're jumping out the window without thinking it through
I try to find the peace in me, so find the peace in you

'Cause there's no end in sight
No end in sight
I'll believe it when I see it
But there's no end in sight

There's an institution from which one can't escape
My hands are tied behind my back, my mouth is shut with tape
These chains are rather comfortable from this auspicious view
I try to find the peace in me, so find the peace in you

'Cause there's no end in sight
No end in sight
I'll believe it when I see it
But there's no end in sight

No end in sight
No end in sight
I'll believe it when I see it
But there's no end in sight

Big ball of confusion
Junkyard of the heart
Everything we put together seems to fall apart
But in between the cracks I see a great big ball of love
It goes on forever out into the sky above

Cause there's no end in sight
No end in sight
I'll believe it when I see it
But there's no end in sight

No end in sight
No end in sight
I'll believe it when I see it
But there's no end in sight

No end in sight [x7]

Deep Down And Deep Lyrics

Artist : SAM SPARRO
Album : Sam Sparro

I want a love that's clean
Like a washing machine
But a little bit dirty
Won't you please don't hurt me

I want a love that's not mean
One to fill me up like a truck
With some gasoline
...

I want a love that keeps me satisfied
Not a love that makes me cry
Because the well's run dry

A love that loves my body
and soul, my mind
Is it really that hard to find?

Somebody
I want to fall deep down and deep [x8]
Down

I want a love that knocks me out
With a one punch wonder
Leave you laying there on the floor
And then a little bit more

I want a love that makes me stop
Makes my heart go pop
Makes my body drop to my knees
Oh, please don't make me beg

I want a love that makes my toes curl up in my shoe
Without the blues
...

Fuck what ya heard

I want a love that leaves a dent in my bed
and thoughts in my head
Makes my cheeks go red
Did you hear what I said?

I want to fall deep down and deep x8
Down

I can't get no sleep
Cuz I wanna fall deep
...

I can't get no sleep
Cuz I wanna fall deep
...

I want to fall deep down and deep [x8]

I'm ready for you

Someone Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

Ruby says she does not dream
She says she's seen it all before
Outside the night is cold and wet
Don't know if we can take much more

Is there someone?
Someone?

She says:
Someone is calling,
Someone is calling for me.
She says:
I got some feelings so different
No one else can see.
She says
She says

Streets are empty every day
No longer can you see the sun
You're running home before the morning light
There is a new age that has just begun

Is there someone?
Someone?

She says:
Someone is calling,
Someone is calling for me.
She says:
I got some feelings so distant
No one else can see.
She says
She says

Life In A Day Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

Life In A Day
The price that you pay
For time that you spent
It's such a fatal event
Take a look at your watch
There is no time to wait
Take a look deep inside
There's no escape from this day

Life In A Day
Life In A Day
Take a look around you
Is it true what they say
Life In A Day
Life In A Day
Is there no place to hide
Could there be some other way

Can you see how they run
Do you believe what they say
They'll soon be looking for you
For sure they'll get you away
The premonition came true
Look all around and you'll see
Some say it takes two to know
Or could it all just be me

Life In A Day
Life In A Day
I love to see how they run
They came a running this way
Life In A Day
Life In A Day
No sense in looking for you
They're going to get you one day

Life In A Day
Life In A Day

Sad Affair Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

I called you last night
But I got no reply
There's something not right
By the look in your eye
Makes me laugh
To walk the path
So many pass this way
It's so unreal
I can't help but feel
I gotta wake you from this daze

Listen to a world of your own
You've got to leave me alone
Sweet mother calling up now
Don't want to speak to no fool
She say I got to look out
For I've got to find the jewels
I have some precious moments
Into the night I stare
To dream of something special
Ooh Another sad affair

When all your trust
Turns to dust
And you're lost for words to say
You've got so much more to see before
You turn to walk away
Listen to a world of your own
You've got to leave me alone.

Ooh another sad affair
Another sad affair
Ooh another sad affair
Another sad affair

It makes me laugh to walk this path
So many pass this way
It's so unreal
I can't help but feel
I gotta wake you from this daze

Listen...

All For You Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

I had a walk the other day
To meet someone I think you know
The air was cold
Skies were so grey
Somebody lay on the ground below
All For You
All For You
All For You

Came face to face
Felt so uneasy
Oh so confused as what's going on
Just could not move
Feel so afraid
Whisper the words
The words were said

All For You
All For You
All For You

Into the street
People can meet
Don't turn your back to the view
The silver blade can cut up your throat
I tell you now
'Cause I know it's true

All For You
All For You
All For You

I had to walk the other day
To meet someone
All For You

Pleasantly Disturbed Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

Black lines call out from his face
Oh his heart beats staccato pace
She says he's not killing time
I just don't want him for no friend of mine

Meanwhile Susan goes out all alone
So many reasons but they're not all her own
Bend till you break
Scream if you must
Someone's in her room
Someone she don't trust

Can you see me I'm in the lukewarm rain
Try so very hard
You know I just can't explain
Think of a colour
Tell me what you see
That colour's red
You can take it from me

Take it from me
Take it from me

I've seen the streetlights
Shine on the underground
I've heard the dead fight
When there's no other sound
I've seen the streetlights
Shine on the underground
I've heard the dead fight
When there's no other sound

Streetlight
Streetlight
Streetlight
Streetlight Sweetlight

No Cure Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

I see them walking
You know they're walking at night
Ohh in the dark you know
They're shining out so bright
Your sarky voices are gonna come on so near
As every picture becomes so clear

You
You come on so sharp
Yet be so nice
Tell me that you're so hot
But you're as cold as ice

There is no cure
You're so blind can't you see?
There is no cure
Can't buy no immunity
There is no cure
So keep your evil from me
There is no cure.

They like to stay
Ooh come on
Come on and stay up so late
You gonna talk of all the things you just wanna hate
You wanna come on
Come on
And make me so mad
Inside your heart
I know it feels so bad
You
You come on so sharp
Yet be so nice
Tell me that you're so hot
But you're as cold as ice

There is no cure
You're so blind can't you see?
There is no cure
Can't buy immunity
There is no cure
So keep your evil from me
There is no cure

Come on and do it
Just what to do it
They're going to do it
Just want to do it

There is no cure...

Chelsea Girl Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

And now the sound of time is getting fast
It's getting late
Don't know if I can take much more
The way you talk I often wondered
If I heard the words somewhere
Someplace before
I got so nervous when I called
And found that lately
You had gone and changed your name
But I've got something on my mind
I want you here
I want you now
You better explain
Is it true you're running round
Now is it true they're calling you
The Chelsea Girl
Is it true you're running round
Now is it true they're calling you
The Chelsea Girl

Your best friend never calls you up
But you don't mind
'Cause lately things are all the same
Ain't it strange how people always seem
To know your face
But just don't know your name
Well I don't care there's no-one there
That even turn around and say get out of this place
Last night I saw a shooting star
When morning comes
She hides away
A real disgrace

Is it true you're running round
Now is it true they're calling you
The Chelsea Girl
Is it true you're running round
Now is it true they're calling you
The Chelsea Girl

Oh Chelsea Girl
You got me caught up in a whirl
I want you here now Chelsea Girl

Wasteland Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

Can you see us now we're on our own
And every chance has just come and just gone
Now it looks so dark and so cold
Think of the minds we sold
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now

I can remember things that looked so bright
And I could talk to you without all this spite
Can you picture all that's past
Does your face deform so fast
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now
We'd better speak now

`Cause when I stop and look into your head
I think of all the things that you said
When I look up into your eyes
I see the creature that I despise
Kill now
Kill now
Kill now
Kill now

Can you see us now we're on our own
And every chance has just come and gone
I've been wrong but you've been unkind
There's so much more that I can't find

Wasteland
Wasteland
Wasteland...

Destiny Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

Look at the world outside
Beware its evil tide
Too many endless days
Cold streets and alleyways
The poor come crawling out
They speak but never shout
I think you'd rather be alone

You're hiding in a shell
So easy I can tell
Can you sell me some thoughts
Though drugs just can't be bought
Tell me is it some crime
To wait a long time
I think you'd rather be alone

Can you hear me
Can you see
I don't want this destiny
To be destined
Destiny

Something's been happening here
Don't touch
Don't come so near
Don't ask me to reply
Can't think of no more lies
The hand thats reaches out
Can crush without a doubt
I think you'd rather be alone

Oh much is left unexplained
It's getting to my brain
Yet still you wear that smile
Then walk your crooked mile
Some day you're bound to learn
Too late
There's no return
I think you'd rather be alone

Can you hear me
Can you see
I don't want this destiny
To be destined
Destiny

Murder Story Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Life In A Day

You say to me things should soon be alright
I get so scared if I don't get out at night
The questions real
The answer so false
I just can't cope no more with this rate of pulse

I lost my past
I gave it away
I feel so insecure
I couldn't take another day
Please be kind
Don't call me no wreck
My nerves are very live you know
But soon they're going to break

No Oh No
Another Murder Story
No Oh No
Another Murder Story

So don't come too close
I can't stand the heat
I get nightmares of places people go to meet
It's so apparent when I walk in the door
That I'm all alone
There's no one home and no one wants me anymore
So claustrophobic if I stand I one place
This state of mind I'm in is positively quite a disgrace
The children from the street call out my name
"Hey You"
It's all so mutual but you know
I just don't want to share no fame

No Oh No
Another Murder Story
No Oh No
Another Murder Story
No Oh No
Murder Story
No Oh No
No Oh No

Naked Eye Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Real To Real Cacophony

You can come inside
Come into the Naked Eye

My only world falls in again
I see your face fall in again
It's so dark
I don't know your name
It's so dark
And I don't know your name

Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Through the needle's eye
Through the needle's eye now
Only mirrors lie
Lie lie

You can come inside
Come into the naked eye
Naked
Naked

I feel so high
Going up on the wall
And you're down below me
Look all around look all around now
Look all around look all around now

Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Only mirrors lie only mirrors lie now
Through the needle's eye
Through the needle's eye now
Only mirrors lie
Lie lie

You can come inside
Come into the naked eye
Naked
Naked

Just wanted a special view
Just me and you
Just just just the two of us
Just two of us
Going up on the wall
Up on the wall
Going up on the wall
Up on the wall
Naked Eye Naked Eye

What do you see
And what's there to learn
Reading your books
Third diagram
Someone's in the room down below
Someone someone
Someone below
Insects
Cherries
To the cherries
On the wall
Spider

Citizen (Dance Of Youth) Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Real To Real Cacophony

Citizen
A cure to kill the east
A disease of the west
Romance is no escape
But I'll escape you
The manufacturing sound
Complaining to ourselves
You're cutting up our friends
Making love to our sisters
Another endless day
Another daze
But I'm losing track
The train goes off the rails
Dance Of The Youth
Youth want to dance

Citizen
The tribal war begins
But radio's a God
Industrial money
God is industry
Dance of youth
Citizen you know what we're after
Know what we're after
Know what we're after

Citizen
The state that we've come to love
Love's a crime against the state
I hate the sound of bells
Communications lost
Something we're after
I hate democracy
One more contact lost
Love
A crime against the state
The state we've come to love
Oh electric candle light
What time is it over there
We got to wear a badge
We're losing track of days

Dance of the youth
Youth want to dance

Citizen
I'll share a room with you
You're getting so very thin
Did we ask for this
Are you rationing our water
Dance of the youth
Our food is getting cold
And you're getting colder
I see you
I'm not so unaware
Citizen

Citizen
An American
Got got a camera
Takes a picture
Citizen
Drum
Citizen
Drum
Citizen
Drum
To drum to drum

Carnival (Shelter In A Suitcase) Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Real To Real Cacophony

Low club light
Lips sealed tight
Expose fade away
Observer write it all down
For Me
No soundtrack
No fightback
Noise annoys
Dark Subject

All the underworld
Making plans for us
We are open wide
Need someone to stand up
Up up

Lovers
Shelter in their suitcase
Waiters
Shelter in their suitcase
Stangers
Shelter in their suitcase
Sailor talk to soldier
Sailor

Low club light
Lips sealed tight
Expose fade away
Observer write it all down
For me
I'll try
I'll spy
I would not buy
A car from you
They make uniforms
Something to call style
We need to stand up
We are open wide-ide-ide

Lovers
Shelter in their suitcase
Waiters
Shelter in their suitcase
Strangers
Shelter in their suitcase
Soldier talk to sailer
Soldier

All the underworld
Making plans for us
We are open wide
Need someone to stand up
Up up

Lovers
Shelter in their suitcase
Waiters
Shelter in their suitcase
Strangers
Shelter in their suitcase
Soldier talk to sailer
Soldier

Factory Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Real To Real Cacophony

In passage of time
To a cigarette burn
In the book that I read
To the sentence I learn
Up and down
Going round
Going round 'till we drown again

I'm gonna set myself up
I'm gonna up to the top
Up to the top
To the top
I'm going down to the ground
Going round
Till we drown
Going round till we drown again

Factory
Imitation of life
Factory
We all go out to lunch
A certain raion we know
Has left us unaware
Someone else has taken leave
Someone who did care
Elevators just don't crash
The answer lies within
Elevators Elevators
Answer lies within

To the glittering prize
To the fool in the sky
I've got a jewel in my eye
I'm going up
Coming down
Going round
Till we drown
Going round till we drown again

To the centre of the man
Because he had a plan
He had a plan to escape
But now we've got it on tape
Going up
Coming down
Going around
Going round till we drown again

Factory
Imitation of life
Factory
We all go out to lunch
A certain raion we know
Has left us unaware
Someone else has taken leave
Someone who did care
Elevators just don't crash
The answer lies within
Elevators Elevators
Answer lies within

Factory
Going out to lunch
Factory
Going out to lunch

Premonition Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Real To Real Cacophony

Real to real
Fact to fact
Nothing moving happening
Artifact
The waiting room
Waits
Limbo can burn
But the original sin
The incentive to learn

Fly over land
Where no hearts can beat
The metal rain pouring
Raining
Raining
Raining down on me
Hole in my head
Where the creature has crawled
And It's burning and turning
Out of control

Real to real
Fact to fact
Nothing moving happening
Artifact
I in this land
Sand in the eye
So here we go
The happy man dies

Brave little world
Well you cry once again
Remodel life
Remake and remodel
Remoel men
Protection Protection
The sound of machines
Image is burning
As they grind to a halt
Crying and crying

The sound of the shells
Tears turn to salt
Cry and I cry
Just one more illusion
I cry just for you
There's a hole in my head
Where the voices came through

Fly over land
Waiting and waiting
Where no hears can beat
Machinery's burning
The metal rains pour
Pour
Raining
Raining down on me

Premonition

Changeling Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Real To Real Cacophony

Overground
Underground
Pulsating through
Street Parade
Day arcade
No cloning you
Uniform
Won't conform
Hero who dies
Find a boy
Kill a toy
Get no reply
Changeling
Well changeling for you
They're coming out of you

Vision
Lost
Out of control
Lost

Down in the club
Beau bells can ring
Look good in blue
Help me to sing
Expose
Fade away
Contact erased
Call a friend
Tailor made
Do as I say

Changeling
Well changeling for you
They're coming out of you

Vision
Lost
Out of control
Lost

Overground
Underground
Overground
Underground

Down in the club
Down in the club
Down in the club
Club

Calling Your Name Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Real To Real Cacophony

Private world
Moving fast
I see your face in the distant past
Time passes slowly
Time passes slowly
Time passes slowly
Echoes of an empty room
Assassin at the window below
The concrete jungle sleeps at night
Story ends
Leave him alone

Calling
Calling your name
All that you say goes in vain
I would like to find you
On a voyage
That could find itself true

Centre of a scene
Where a man lies dying in the sun
The concrete jungle sleeps at night
Story ends
Can't leave him alone

Calling
Calling your name
All that you say goes in vain
I would like to find you
On a voyage
That could find itself true

Private world
Moving fast
I see your face in the distant past
Time passes slowly
Time passes slowly
Time passes slowly

Scar Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Real To Real Cacophony

Travelling through
Flashback to you
Fire
I see fire
Sun in my eyes
People in love
Talk far too much
Cities have lights
Cities have lights
Sun in my eyes

Car passenger
Fate at the wheel
Quick kiss of death
Car passenger
Fate at the wheel
Quick kiss of death

Travelling through
Cities have lights
Cities have lights
Car passenger
Fire
I see fire

I Travel Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Empires And Dance

Cities, buildings falling down
Ideal homes falling down
These pictures I see on the wall
Timeless leaders stand so tall
Assassin in a hit and run
Asia steals a new born son
Evacuees and refugees
Presidents and monarchies

Travel round
I travel round
Decadence and pleasure towns
Tragedies,luxuries,statues,parks and galleries

Europe has a language problem
Talk, talk, talk, talk, talking on
In central Europe
Men are marching
Marching on and marching on
Love songs playing in the restaurants
Airport playing "Bi Some Lo"

Travel round
I travel round
Decadence and pleasure towns
Tragedies,luxuries,statues,parks and galleries

Europe has a language problem

Europe has a language problem
America has a language problem
I Travel
Euro-Bureau-Interpol
Making love to the criminals
Asia has a language problem
I Travel
And on and on and on and on and on and on and on

Today I Died Again Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Empires And Dance

The human drum
Beats a rhythm of life
The clothes he wears
Date back to the war
He talks alot
Often to himself
She don't say much
Just cuts his hair
She can't remember
Before the heat
He can't remember
His wife's christian name
Paint me a picture
Towers in sand
America can fall

Today I died again
I died again
I died today
Today I died again
I died again
I died today

Back to a year
Back to a youth
Of men in church and drug cabarets
Is this the age
Of empires and dance
Oh what a world
Oh what a world
She can't remember
Before this heat
He can't remember
His wife's christian name
Paint me a picture
Bodies in sand
Presidents can fall

Today I died again
I died again
I died today
Today I died again
I died again
I died today

Celebrate Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Empires And Dance

Act of love
Is a luxury
The suit he wears
Belongs to me
The road is long
Seven thousand miles
Soldier talk
And uniform
We can live
I can live
Celebrate
Celebrate
We can live
I can live
Celebrate
Celebrate

She rag doll
Keeps him warm
This negative
Shows no form
He salutes the crowd
"Go west young man"
Run run run
The hollow man

We can live
I can live
Celebrate
Celebrate
We can live
I can live
Celebrate
Celebrate

To a distant land
Sand and sand
Touch to touch
A marble man
The house is glass
Furniture's chrome
Soldier talk
And uniform

We can live
I can live
Celebrate
Celebrate
We can live
I can live
Celebrate
Celebrate

Capital City Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Empires And Dance

Nerve and nerve
This coastline swerves
To a city that they live on
I walk on by
Animals cry
To a city that they live on
To a city that they walk on
To a city that they live on
Pulse Feel Pulse

This train is late
I hesitate
To a city that they live on
Dance the dance of violence
To a city that they live on
To a city that they crawl on
To a city that they live on

Pulse Feel Pulse

City that they live on
Feel
To a city that they crawl on
To a city live on
Feel
City that they crawl on

Constantinople Line Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Empires And Dance

Hey Waiter
I'm first class
Hey Waiter
Where are we now?
Am I last
Am I last
Hey Waiter
Don't talk back
These tenants speak
A traveller's language
Caucasian talk
They're saying nothing
I see a land
As we crawl by night
I see a face
In the window in front

These stations are useful
These stations we love them
Newspaper
Encounter
Confusion

Hey Waiter
I'm first class
Hey Waiter
What state is this?
These reptiles scream
A violent party
All art and jazz
And League of Nations
I see a land
As we crawl by night
I see a face
In the window in front
The east is calling
I'm feeling nervous
I love the western
Style and change

These stations are useful
These stations we love them
These stations are useful
These stations we love them
Newspaper
Encounter
Confusion

Constantinople
Red
Red star
Red
Constantinople
Red
Red star
Red

Twist / Run / Repulsion Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Empires And Dance

Switch the light on
We can think it's dawn
Oh push along
Push along
Play a long song
I'm laughing at marine
Marine laughs back
Don't like those boys
Toy soldier boys
I'm lying in bed
You can play me fear
You can play me fear
Only rhythm I hear
You cut me up
With joys of life
I'm going somewhere
I'm going someplace
If caution is life
Then caution is sin
Contort contort contort
I'll win
These walls that close
Close in on me
Seductress shout
Seductress scream
Switch the light on
We can think it's dawn
Oh push along
Push along
Pray along
Play a long song

Thirty Frames A Second Lyrics

Artist : SIMPLE MINDS
Album : Empires And Dance

Today I saw a film going backwards
Thirty Frames A Second
Was a man I recognised
Say who you are

I lost my job
Security
Self confidence
Bank account
Identity

The league of youth
Coming backward at me
Thirty Frames a second
Say who you are

Go back to father
Father where's my food?
You food is on the table
That can't be food
It's dirt

Say who you are

Look at my skin
Look at my face
Look at my arms
Getting younger
Going backwards
Thirty Frames A Second
Say who you are

I crash my car
Collapse in town
Young immigrants
And legionaires
Fighting back back backwards
Thirty Frames A Second
Say who you are

Some friends of mine
I thought were dead
A coming back
"What are you doing coming back
Jack"

Say who you are
Feel I'm going backwards
Thirty Frames A Second
