all Ocean Colour Scene lyrics



Up on the Downside
This england made me
Between the war and a rockets flying
You found the crib that saves me
And teach me wrong and right

Then the world was talking
It never got it's chance to say
When there's too much talking
Nobody hears the words you say

You won't see
Baby now I want you
These blind communications
Only last throughout the year
And half of what we're saying
Is halfway in a truth
And blind communications
For a million hearts and fools

I am a witness
To a land of a million fools
All placing bets on life
Then hate the ones you lose
And all the lonely
Never get the chance to say
That their one and only
Would be the chance to even play

Repeat chorus

Hello monday
The week is just a blur
I've been burning bridges
And now I'm begging at your door
So I keep on working
'cause it's a chance for me to pay
But too much talking
When you believe the words I say

Repeat chorusback to top
In My Field
I'm in my field
I'm in my stream
And I'm love
I'm in my tree

I take a walk
Nine hundred miles
I cross the stile
I'm in my field

And I'm in love
And it's for free
I'm in my field
I'm in my field

I'm in my field
I'm in my stream
And I will yield
I'm in my field

And I'm in love
Across the stile
Come in my field
Just you and me

We'll take a walk
Nine hundred miles
And I'm in love
We'll count the stars

I'm in my field
I'm in my stream
Well I'm in love
Just you and me

I'm in my field
I'm in my stream
Well I'm in love
I'm in my tree

I take a walk
Nine hundred miles
I cross the stile
I'm in my fieldback to top
Biggest Thing
Off the wall the streets you go
The little girl don't find her name
? ? ? down roads to homes
Where everybody find their game

Just behind the street she goes
She'll be found behind her wheel
'cause it's the only place she knows
That makes her know just how she feels

'cause you're biggest thing
That I see
You got me where you want me
You hunt me down you hold me
And beg me to believe

All too fast to where she goes
But who'll be first to find her name
Holding on in hollywood
But holding on don't make the grade

Just about ? ? ? it's alright
? ? ? find
This holidays not hollywood
And holidays don't suit my game

Repeat chorus

Holidays and harlem(? ) nights
Where everybody find their way
? ? ? things they write
And makes you wanna find your place

Repeat chorus twiceback to top
We Made It More
By the way you went
You take it all
And make another sender

By the way it often takes you by surprise
You know the mender
And oh you play it strange

And anyway
We all got a little bit of something
We all got more than we bargained for
Got a need for something
But you and I we made it more

Ain't gonna make another play today
I know, I'm waiting on a sender
Ain't gonna take my weight until you wait
I know, I need another mender
But it's to you I'm making a surrender

And you make another
Tell you wanna weigh another breakdown
Kicking up and had enough
That all it just seems so relentless
And oh you play it strange

Repeat pre-chorus & chorus

But you and I we made it more

Repeat chorus

We all got a little bit of something
We all got more than we bargained forback to top
Give Me a Letter
Give me a letter
The sooner the better
I'm out of here

Give me a card
I'm not waiting hard
To hear you

All I'm trying to do
Is all you want to say

Give me a letter
The sooner the better
I'm away from you

Trying so hard
I'm not taking a car
And I'll lose you

All I want to do
Is all I'm trying to say

What I'm trying to say
Is what I'm trying to do

Repeat first two verses

What I'm trying to say
What I'm trying to do
Is keeping up with youback to top
Mechanical Wonder
The mechanical wonder is
It's just a noise in my room
And I'm chasing the wonder and
It's just a hole in my tune

And the radio plays but it
But it don't sing a song
And the mechanical thunder is
What is all going wrong

And I walk down the road and i
I awake in a tune
But the mechanical thunder is
It's just a noise in my room

And we rode it once
On a thundering night
So I walk with you
Where the locks take flight

All machines make our lives today
And I like them the best
But the mechanical thunder is
It's just a noise in my head

And the radio plays at me
But it don't sing a song
But the mechanical wonder is
Ah, it's all going wrong

And they rode it once (and we rode it once on last chorus)
On a thundering night
So I walk with you
Where the locks take flight
And we keep on through
It's where the road don't roar
Where the farm once stood
Where the union crawls, big time

The machines that I'm walking from
Though they play in the songs
And the dreams that your holding on
Don't run for so long

So I'm hiding machines away
But I keep them for you
But the things that you wanna say
It's just a noise in my room

And I look at the picture now
And there's a weight on us all
But the mechanical wonder is
It's a cure one and all

Repeat full chorus with slight variationback to top
You Are Amazing
You are amazing
It's the truth
And it's often fading
Without you

I don't feel the wind blow
I don't feel the hard rock
I don't feel it when it breaks your heart
I don't feel it all day (? )
To for ? ? ? start

You are a lady
It's the truth
And it's often shady
Behind you

I don't feel the hollow
I don't feel it all grow/broke
I don't believe it when you make your mark
I don't live in malice
I need more than that (? ? ? )

Standing here in hollow
It's the only thing broke
And it shakes you and it makes you start
Like a singing widow/willow which will mend your heart

You are amazing
It's the truthback to top
If I Gave You My Heart
If I gave you my heart
Where would you be
Would it mean nothing
If not for me

If I gave you my eyes
What would they see
Would they see nothing
If not for me

But I gave you my hand and my sign and my soul on the earth
And I gave up on truth when I heard about the words
I lived out of love when I gave it away
And I sold off my soul when there's no one to pay

If I gave you my hand
What would it write
Would it say nothing
Or say it's alright

If I gave you my arms
Would they hold you tight
First blood (? ) in morning
Or bid you goodnight

And I gave you my strength and my worth and I gave you my gift
And I moved on the first and I left us to drift
And I reap from the soil and I build hopes from wood
It's a new better life and we have to ensure

And I gave you my dream of the world and you stole the key
You sang to the wind in the whole ? ? ? sea
And I feel my weight and I guard my soul
And I found my beliefs when I found my control
I gave you my hand and my soul on the earth
And I gave up on the truth when I heard about the words
So I lived out of love when I gave it away
And I sold off my soul when there's no one to pay

Another version
---------------------------------------------------------
If I gave you my heart where would you be,
Would it mean nothing if not for me?
If I gave you my eyes what would they see,
Would they see nothing if not for me?

But I gave you my hand and my sign,
And my soul on the earth,
And I gave up on truth,
When I heard about the worst

So I lived out of love
When I gave it away
And I sold off my soul
When there was no-one to pay

If I gave you my hand what would it write
Would it say nothing or say it's alright
If I gave you my arms would they hold you tight
First light of morning or bid you goodnight

And I gave you my strength and my worth
And I gave you my gift
And I moved on the first
And I left us to drift

And I'll reap from the soil
And I'll build home from wood
It's a new better life
And we have 2 and should

And I gave you my dream of the world
And we stood on the quay
And we sang to the wind
And the whole darkening sea

And I feel my weight
And I guard my soul
And I found my beliefs
When I found my control

I gave you my hand
And my soul on the earth
And I gave up on truth
When I heard about the worst

So I lived out of love
When I gave it away
And I sold off my soul
When there was no-one to payback to top
Can't Get Back to the Baseline
I want more than me and you
The more I want the more it scares me
I will put my faith in you
Won't you be my missionary?

I can't... can't get back to the baseline
Had too much of waiting up
Had too much of things I tell you
It's the only way and it's love
Fill my cup oh I've said too much

I've been on freight train buzz
So I'm trying to tell you
The only thing I need's your love
But I can't...
I can't get back to the baseline

It's the way of feeling good
It is all that's necessary
I guess that it's from above
I'm no fool but I guess too much

Fare you well and I will choose
When I find it I will tell you
I belong to the same as you
Won't you be my missionary?back to top
Something for Me
You were arriving
Of this I'm sure
You were just hiding all around your door

That would be telling
And it's not for free
You're all the rage when you're out with me

Gotta do something
Something for free
Gotta do something for me
It ain't complaining
Ah just you see
Gotta do something for me

You won't be foolish
Of this I'm sure
But I'm feeling used when I'm round your door

That ain't complaining
Ah just you see
You're like the same when it's not for me
