all Cranberries lyrics



Hollywood
I've got a picture in my head
In my head
It's me and you we are in bed
We are in bed
You've always been there when I called
When I called
You've always been there most of all, all, all, all
(chorus)
This is not Hollywood
Like I understood
Is not Hollywood
Like, like, like
Get away, get away,
Is there anybody there?
Get away, get away,
Is there anybody there?
get away, get away, get away, away....
I've got a picture in my room
In my room
I will return there I presume
It will be soon
The greatest irony of all
Should do all
It's not so glamourous at all, all, all
(repeat chorus)back to top
Salvation
To all the people doing lines
Don't do it, don't do it
Inject your soul with liberty
It's free, it's free
To all the kids with heroin eyes
Don't do it, don't do it
Cos it's not, not what it seems
Oh no it's not, not what it seems
(chorus)
Salvation, Salvation, Salvation is free
Salvation, Salvation, Salvation is free
To all the parents with sleepless nights
Sleepless nights
Tie your kids home to their beds
Clean their heads
To all the kids with heroin eyes
Don't do it, don't do it
Cos it's not, not what it seems
No no it's not, not what it seems
(repeat chorus)back to top
When You're Gone
Hold on to love
That is what I do
Now that I've found you
And from above
Everything's stinking
They're not around you
And in the night
I could be helpless
I could be lonely, sleepping without
And in the day, everything's complex
There's nothing simple when I'm not around you
But I miss you when you're gone
That is what I do
Hey baby
It's hard to carry on
That is what I do
Hey baby...
Hold on to my hands
I feel I'm sinking
Sinking without you
And to my mind
Everything's stinking
Stinking without you
And in the night I could be helpless
I could be lonely, slipping without you
And in the day, everything's complex
There's nothing simple
When I'm not around you
I miss you when you're gone
That is what I do
Hey baby
It's hard to carry on
That is what I do
Hey baby...back to top
Free to Decide
It's not worth anything more
Than it is at all
I live as I choose
Or I will not live at all
So return to where to where you came from
Return to where you dwell
Because harassment's not my forte
But you do it bloody well
And I'm free to decide
I'm free to decide
And I'm not so suicidial after all
You must have nothing more
With your time to do
There's a war in Russia and Sarajevo too
So to hell with all your thinking
And to hell with your narrow mind
You're so distracted from the real thing
You should leave your life behind
Cos I'm free to decide
Free to decide
And I'm not so suicidal after all
I'm free to decide....back to top
Warchild
Who will save the warchild baby
Who controls the key?
The web we weave is thick and sordid
Fine by me
At times of war, we're all losers
There's no victory
We shoot and kill and kill your lover
Fine by me
Warchild, victim of political pride
Plant the seed, territorial greed
Mind the warchild, we should mind the warchild
I spent last winter in New York and came upon a man
He was sleeping on the streets and homeless
He said "I fought in Vietnam"
Beneath his shirt he wore his mark, he bore the mark of pride
A two inch deep incision, carved into his side
Warchild, victim of political pride
Plant the seed, terrirtorial greedback to top
Forever Yellow Skies
Yellow Sky
I can see you in the yellow sky
See you again
I'll see you again
In my dreams
Morning light
I remember morning light
Outside my door
I'll see you no more
In my dreams
Forever
Forever I'll be
Forever holding you
Responsible
Black and white
It's become so black and white
It's become so wrong
So insecure
You're so insecure
That's what you are
Forever
Forever I'll be
Forever holding you
Responsible...back to top
The Rebels
Seems like yesterday we were 16
We were the rebels of the rebel scene
We wore Doc Martens in the sun
Drinking vintage cider having fun
Drinking vintage cider having fun
It wasn't often that we fought at all
It wasn't often...
We wore Doc Martens in the sun
Paint our toenails black and let our hair grow
What I am now is what I was then
I am not more acceptable that then
I an not more acceptable than then
It wasn't often that we fought at all
It wasn't often...
Seems like yesterday we were 16
We were the rebels of the rebel sceneback to top
I Just Shot John Lennon
It was a fearful night of December 8th
He was returning home from the studio late
He had perceptively known that it wouldn't be nice
Because in 1980, he paid the price
John Lennon died...
With a Smith and Wesson 38
John Lennon's life was no longer a debate
He should have stayed at home
He should have never cared
The man who took his life declared:
He said, "I just shot John Lennon,
I just shot John Lennon"
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
What a sad and sorry and sickening night...back to top
Electric Blue Eyes
Electric blue eyes where did you come from
Electric blue eyes who sent you
Electric blue eyes always be near me
Electric blue eyes I need you
"Domina adjuva me"
Wish you'd go
Wish you'd know I am out here
If you should go you shoudl know I am here
Always be near me guardian angel
Always be near me, there's no fear
"Domina adjuva me"back to top
I'm Still Remembering
I'm still remembering the day
I gave my life away
I'm still remembering the time
You said you'd be mine
Yesterday was cold and bare,
Because you were not there
Yesterday was cold
My story has been told
I need your affection all the way
The world has changed
Or I've changed in a way
I try to remain,
I'm tyring not to go insane
I need your affection all the way...
I'm still remembering my life
Before I became your wife
I'm still remembering the pain
And the mind games
Reverse psychology
Never tainted me
I didn't sell my soul,
I didn't sell my soul...
I need your affection all the way....
They say the cream will always
Rise to the top
They say the good people
Are always first to drop
What of Kurt Cobain?
Will his prescence still remain?
Remember JFK?
Ever saintly in a way
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
I say, where are you now?
I need your affection all the way...back to top
Will you Remember?
Will you remember the dress I wore?
Will you remember my face?
Will you remember the lipstick I wore?
This world is a wonderful place
Will you remember the black limousine?
Will you remember champagne?
Will you remember the things that we've seen?
I will return here again
Will you remember the flowers in my hand?
Will you remember my hair?
Will you remember the future we planned?
The world is not waiting out there
I won't remember the dress I wore
I won't remember champagne
I won't remember the things that we swore
I will just love you in vain
Will you remember?
Will you recall?back to top
Joe
There was a time I was so lonely
Remember the time, it was a Friday
You made me feel fine, we did it my way
I sat on your knees every Friday
I still recall you...
I see you in summer...
Joe... Joe...
I sat on your chair by the fire
Transfixed in a stare, taking me higher
Precious years to remember
Childhood fears I surrender
I still recall you...
I see you in summer...
Joe... Joe...back to top
Bosnia
I would like to state my vision
Life was so unfair
We live in our secure surroundings
And people die out there
Bosnia was so unkind
Sarajevo changed my mind
And we all call out in despair
All the love we need isn't there
And we all sing songs our rooms
Sarajevo erects an undertune
Sarajevo, Sarajevo, Sarajevo
Bosnia was so unkind
Sarajevo, Sarajevo, Sarajevo
Bosnia was so unkind
Sure thigns would change if we really wanted them to
No fear for children anymore
There are babies in their hands, terror in their heads
For life, for life
When do the saints go marching in?
When do the saints go marching in?back to top
Cordell
(Bonus Track in Japan)

Once you ruled my mind
I thought you'd always be there
And I'll always hold on to your face
But everything changes in time
And the answers are not always fair
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Cordell
Time will tell
They say that you've passed away
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Time will tell
Time will tell
They say that you've passed away
And I know that you've gone to a better place
Cordell...
Your lover and baby will cry
But you prescense will always remain
Is this how it was meant to be?
You meant something more to me
That what many people will see
And to hell with the endless dream
Cordell
Time will tell
They say that you've passed away
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Time will tell
Time will tell
We all will depart and decay
And we all will return to a better place
Cordell...back to top
The Picture I View
(Bonus Track)

I haven't changed, but my life has
people are strange when it's like as,
I did something wrong to them
and I don't even know your name...
I swear that he's good for me,
and I don't even know your name...
I swear that he's good for me,
and I swear he looks after me,
and I swear that he looks out for me...
and I swear that he's good
(chorus)
La, La, La, the picture I view
La, La, La, the picture I view
all my friends and promises
went tumbling down the hill
all my friends and promises
went tumbling down the hill
they went tumbling down the hill
I haven't changed, but mylife has
People are strange when it's like as
I did something wrong to them,
and I don't even know your nameback to top
