all Idlewild lyrics



You've Lost Your Way
Lovers in the basement sipping on a cola
their friend goes in to see them
but they don't have to be afraid
I go down the stairwell
I stare at the stairwell
I stare at the girl.
you just have to be who you are
There's no room for liars
there's no room for liars
there's no need for fires
so I won't have to go outside
No one can believe
no one can believe
no one can believe I'm a voyeur.
There is no room for voyeurs
there's only room for disaster
there's only room for you and me
Frances' only sixteen
she's only sixteen
but she's (either sold out or sewn up)back to top
Paint Nothing
My wintertime came fast I bought you a drawing pad,
And then you told me,
You didn't like looking closely.
You don't like walking home,
You're not sure who you are,
And no-one knows about your scar.
But I told you to shut up once,
Because you're never there,
And you're too old to be scared.

Cause I've been in lots of these,
Bad, bad situations.

Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.

The summertime came fast you still had your drawing pad,
But you told me,
You couldn't see me correctly.
We don't like holding hands,
We don't like playing guitar,
And no-one knows about your scars.

But I've been in, lots of these,
Bad, bad situations.

And you never get out of this : Easily!

Cause I've been in lots of these,
Bad, bad situations.

Paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now.

Send me here send me there,
Repetitions in the air.
Send me here send me there,
Repetitions in the air.back to top
When I Argue I See Shapes
I'm not really sure of all this pressure,
i'm never going to lose any of my old letters
They'll stay with me, until i can see,
until i can see that i'm no-one
They'll stay with me, until i can see,
until i can see that i'm no-one
So don't slight it off cuz you'll be fined,
don't start slighting off cuz you'll be fined
All you ever do is build it up inside,
All you ever do is build it up inside

I'm not really sure of all this pressure,
i'm never going to lose any of my old letters
They'll stay with me, until i can see,
until i can see that i'm no-one
So don't slight it off cuz you'll be fined,
don't start slighting off cuz you'll be fined
All you ever do is build it up inside,
All you ever do is build it up inside

You smoke too much when you talk too much,
and when i argue syd barrett makes me laugh
I laugh at your conversational skills, or lack of
I laugh at your conversational skills, or lack of

I'm not really sure of all this pressure,
i'm never going to lose any of my old letters
They'll stay with me, until i can see,
until i can see that i'm no-one
They'll stay with me, until i can see,
until i can see that i'm no-one
So don't slight it off cuz you'll be fined,
don't start slighting off cuz you'll be fined
All you ever do is build it up inside,
All you ever do is build it up inside

You smoke too much when you talk too much,
and when i argue syd barrett makes me laugh
I laugh at your conversational skills, or lack of
I laugh at your conversational skills, or lack of

Cuz when i argue i see shapes (x10)

You smoke too much when you talk too much,
and when i argue sit back it makes me laugh
I laugh at your conversational skills, or lack of
I laugh at your conversational skills, or lack ofback to top
4 People Do Good
You can't always be a strange one
I've spent a year without a hope
Frighten yourself into it
If you don't want to stay
Walk out into the light you'll be better off that way

I've got no motives, 4 people do good
(This place is pretty when I see you in light now)

You stand there, watch him wander
If he's wondering about the stars
If he's wandering away don't make him stay if he doesn't want to stay
So you'll never be aloneback to top
I'm Happy to Be Here Tonight
the world is in my chaos dream
but I am not invited
cos you don't know what people say/want to say
your an abstract unknown boy
you and me talk freely at night
and this is my chaos
you've got a right to stay inside
I supply
you are the last one to know
cos I don't knowback to top
Everyone Says You're So Fragile
I'm not that medieval, sometimes I write my thoughts down
I can never remember who I am
Who I am, where I am, what on earth I'm doing here
What on earth I know

I'm not that medieval, sometimes I write my thoughts down
I can never remember who I am
Who I am, where I am, what on earth I'm doing here
What on earth I know

What's going on out of the window now?
What's going on out of the window now?
No, no I'm agile, and everyone says that you're so fragile
No, no I'm agile, and everyone says that you're so fragile

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaahh!

What's going on out of the window now?
What's going on out of the window now?
No, no I'm agile, and everyone says that you're so fragileback to top
I'm a Message
I am the best message out of the rest of them
Are you all alone?

You're selling your soul, have you got it cold
You're ice cold, with your eyes closed
Have you got it all?

You're fearing us all

I am a messageback to top
You Don't Have the Heart
(studio talking)

(brackets indicate backing vocals)

9, 9
8, 8
7, 7
6, 6
(Turn the page)
Turn the page now
(its 1978 its 1978)

(your on the telephone)

shut up
sit up
? 1978
and I'm reading these books
and being a boy
I can't reach over to press play
can you pass me the ashtrayback to top
Close the Door
cos I'm the one who knows everyone bar ber que lungs
none of you know what I'm thinking
who on earth would believe a word that you say
your disturbed in a strange facinated way
your disturbed, I think your disturbed
I've told you once
to switch all the lights off
you never believe that
stay near the windowthe window

phone me at 3 or 4
close the door (1, 2, 3, 4)
phone me at 3 or 4
time for the math test
I come over to you, at your chair you face up
I reply politely stare back
back
I'm so backward
I almost forgot
why I'm sittingback to top
Safe and Sound
the common mistake is to forget
and concentrate on your neverthough
the common mistake is to forget
I've remembered the part in your book
so I know what exactly is going on
don't think I know
what exactly is going on
your safe and sound
till you hit the ground
your know its a long way down
the common mistake is to forget
I always forget to forget to remember
it's my common mistake
exactly what is going onback to top
Low Light
turn the lights down when you cry
turn the lights down low

the lights are low
a low light

you don't know

sad show
cos you know
its was the sure sign
it/that (didn't) happened long a go

I know that you are with me now
I know thatback to top
