I Melt With You
Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world thrashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you

Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
Started in the state of imaginary grace
I made a pilgrimage to save this human race
Never comprehending a race that long gone by

I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do

I'll stop the world and melt with you

The future's open wide (Na Na Na part)

I'll stop the world and melt with you
I've seen some changes but it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with youback to top
Second Coming
it streaks across the sky towards Bethlehem
a shining star filled with hope and love.

It抯 the second coming
the new Christ won't survive
it's a second coming
the Christ will die

he thinks he'll rid the world of it's sins.
but he'll feel the nails go right into his hands.

think about the first time that he came
all the millions that died in his name
the apocalypse is oh so near
soon enough we'll be in darkness.
when the world finally got wise
he got a spear right into his side.back to top
Come Dancing
Cover of the Kinks:
They put a parking lot on a piece of land
When the supermarket used to stand.
Before that they put up a bowling alley
On the site that used to be the local palais.
That's where the big bands used to come and play.
My sister went there on a Saturday.

Come dancing,
All her boyfriends used to come and call.
Why not come dancing, it's only natural?

Another Saturday, another date.
She would be ready but she's always make them wait.
In the hallway, in anticipation,
He didn't know the night would end up in frustration.
He'd end up blowing all his wages for the week
All for a cuddle and a peck on the cheek.

Come dancing,
That's how they did it when I was just a kid,
And when they said come dancing,
My sister always did.

My sister should have come in a midnight,
And my mom would always sit up and wait.
It always ended up in a big row
When my sister used to get home late.

Out of my window I can see them in the moonlight,
Two silhouettes saying goodnight by the garden gate.

The day they knocked down the palais
My sister stood and cried.
The day they knocked down the palais
Part of my childhood died, just died.

Now I'm grown up and playing in a band,
And there's a car park where the palais used to stand.
My sister's married and she lives on an estate.
Her daughters go out, now it's her turn to wait.
She knows they get away with things she never could,
But if I asked her I wonder if she would,

Come dancing,
Come on sister, have yourself a ball.
Don't be afraid to come dancing,
It's only natural.

Come dancing,
Just like the palais on a Saturday.
And all her friends will come dancing
Where the big bands used to play.back to top
Leader of the Pack
I met them at the candy store
I turned around, they spotted me
get the picture?
Thats when I fell for the leader of the pack

My folks are always putting him down
I guess they came from the wrong side of town
They told me he was bad
but i know he was sad
Thats why I fell for the leader of the pack

One day my dad told "find someone new"
I had to tell my Jimmy were through
He stood there and asked me why
but all I could do was cry
I'm sorry I hurt you
Leader of the pack

Sorta smiled
kissed me goodbye
The tears were beginning to show
as you drove away at the rainy night
I begged him to go slow
Will it hurt me, I'll never now

I felt so helpless
what could I do
Remembering all the things we'de been through
At school they all stopped and stare
I can't hide the tears
but i dont care
I'll never forget him
Leader of the pack

Leader of the pack, now he's all gone (repeat 7x)back to top
In My Head
I can't pull in all the stops
But it rained on all of this
With the sirens in my sleep
And her sorrow at my kiss

I can't turn away
Hold the half turn when you pray
All the vanity and fate
Written on her crazy face

Here in my head I here you say
Here in my head I here you pray

Time is what it's made
Made by all those i regret
"Remeber me" I hear it said
Other faces I'd forget

Hope you get up off your feet
Shake the dust out of your shoes
City lights and all my jazz
And all my demonstrations too

Here in my head I here you say
Here in my head I here you pray

Time is what it's made
Made by others i regret
Remeber we are here and sad
All the faces I'd forget

Here in my head I here you say
Here in my head I here you pray
Here in my head I here you say
Here in my head I here you prayback to top
My War
My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

You don't want to see me live
You don't want me to give
Cuz you're one of them

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

I might not know what a friend is
All I know is what you're not
Cuz you're one of them

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

I have a prediction, it lives in my brain
It's with me every day, it drives me insane
I feel it in my heart, that if I has a gun
I feel it in my heart, I'd wanna kill some
I feel it in my heart, the end will come
Come on!!

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

Tell me that I'm wrong
Try to sing me your ego song
You're one of them

My war you're one of them
You say that you're my friend
But you're one of them

My War.back to top
