Love Is Blind
Give me the city
Give me the sea
Give to me everything I need
The future is shining like a giant metal beast
It shines so bright tonight with it's legs open wide and love is blind
Falls in love with itself again like it never should the way it always can and she is mine
But the world is much bigger now
Oh tell me should I hold her hand and give her love or take her heart and throw it far
Away?
Oh now is the time to jump into it all
I'll just hold my nose and try not to fall
To seek and to find instead of walking around with eyes glued to the sky
I turn them down to the ground
Oh and I used to think that maybe one day I'd find the love of my life
Oh but it's so far away
Oh I don't know why
Oh but i
I want it all tonight and love is blind
Falls in love with itself again like it never should the way it always can
Oh and she is mine but the world is so much bigger now
Oh tell me should I hold her hand and give her love or take her heart and throw it far
Away?
We held hands and we looked out of the bedroom window
We could see all the buildings collapsing around us
So we kissed and we laid on the bed and we waited for the ceiling to fall in
But it never did
In the morning it was all still there
The spilled milk and the dog-turds in that grey ashtray morning light
I could hear thousands of people and they were all singing this song: la lala lala...
Hey butcher!
Oh, oh, oh hey butcher!
What's your name?
Oh hey butcher, what's your game?
Ah, you take all their love and you suck out their eyes and then you rip out their hearts
And you eat their insides
Yeah, then you just walk away with a smile on your face
Hey butcher, hey butcher
I've seen your face before
La ladadow da lalala...
And love is blind.back to top
Don't You Want Me Anymore?
On the night that I was leaving,
The moon rose in the sky.
As I came, to fetch my suitcase,
And then you began to cry.
I've never seen you look so ugly as the way you did that night.
That night was eighteen months ago.
Now I'm two hours from the station.
Yeah I'm coming home again.
I'm gonna show this town who's master soon as I get off this train.
You're gonna love me more than ever,
And the sun will shine again.
And I will kiss your face,
And I will make you smile again.
And then the whole damn town will come on out to welcome me.
Oh they will open all the doors and give it all to me.
Oh no but still your voice is ringing in my ears.
Don't you want me anymore?
Don't you want me anymore?
And I can't, I can't believe it's happening.
I know that, oh there must be some mistake.
You found yourself another lover,
And you're glad we made the break.
Oh you don't even, you don't even want to see me.
You just wanna wave and say goodbye.
Go away now, and leave us alone,
No this house is not your own.
And now the whole damn town has come on out to laugh at me.
Oh yeah.
Oh they can stare for evermore; you do not care for me.
Oh no.
Oh they can stare now for a hundred thousand years.
Don't you want me anymore?
Don't you want me anymore?
Don't you want me anymore?
Don't you want me anymore?back to top
She's Dead
She's dying, everybody came to see
She's falling and I know I'll never see her face again
And I don't really know just why she's leaving
All she ever said was she just had to go
And I watch her as she walks away from me
Yeah, I can see her then I know that in a moment she'll be gone
Yeah, she'll be gone and and then I'll say
'you've got to understand. she's not really breathing no not at all
Those years of endless rain, they just washed her away.'
Oh and I know she's leaving
Yeah she's going for good
Oh and I'd love to go with you but I never would face it
You've blown it this time round
Now I understand just why she's leaving
Oh if she'd have hung around with me
Well you know she'd never go, no nonono
Oh and I know she's leaving
Yeah, she's going for good and I'd love to go with you but I never would
Oh and I know she's leaving
Yeah, she's going for good and I'd love to go with you oh but I never would
No I never would
No I never would
No I never would
Oh no dadadada dadada...
She's never coming back
Face it
She's gone
Oh lalalala lalala...
No I never would
No I never would.back to top
Separations
As the sun shines down on the land so her heart is crying for love
And there is no-one there, no-one to hear her voice and she will sleep alone again tonight
Now the moon is high in the sky
In her room she calls out his name
But he is somewhere else somewhere she cannot see
Oh and the night is dark between them now
'my god, my god, why did he go away? '
Now the sun shines on a new town
With a smile he gets off the train
He lights a cigarette leans back to see the sky
Oh and he thinks how much better off he is without her hanging round
Let's do it
And the day is passing by him and he has nowhere to stay
At a lonely bar-room table his mind goes back to yesterday to the girl who's dead and
Buried
But her face lives in his eyes
He must forget that face forever
Make the future start tonight
Forget her
But the meal he eats is dead flesh
There is cancer in his cigarettes and the drinks won't do a thing for him
But revive some stupid memories
Then a hairstyle that reminds him makes him run into the night
Where the moon hangs high above him now
The same moon that she's praying on tonight
But the wind catches her words and the moon swallows them whole
Now the moon is high in the sky
In her room she calls out his name
The night is cold and dark and she is all alone
The bed is empty now
Her body screams for love
She wants to be with him
Oh but he's so far away
Oh and the night is dark between them now
'my god, my god, why did he go away? 'back to top
Down by the River
Nadadum dadadada dada da...
Take me down to the river where I would not go before
Through the trees and the rushes to a place we both know
And I'm feeling much younger as I kneel on the ground
Dip my toe in the water of the river where I watched you drown
Nadadum nananana nana na...
Oh when the river ran dry that next year
I could not find your body
Now I'm standing here ready at last to dive down and reach you again
And I long to be with you
Now these cold nights have come oh I go down to the river but the river will stop for
No-one
Though I ask it it keeps flowing on
When I ask it, it tells me you're gone
Dadow...back to top
Countdown
[single intro: 'keep very still, for the strangest things are about to happen.']

Oh I was seventeen when I heard the countdown start, it started slowly
And I thought it was my heart but then I realised
That this time it was for real there was no place to hide
I had to go out and feel, but there was time to kill
And so i, I walked my way around town I tried to love the world
Oh but the world just got me down and so I looked for you
In every street of every town I wanted to see your face
I wanna I wanna see you now
I wanna see you now
Oh and so it went
Oh so it went for several years I couldn't stand it
No oh it must be getting near now that you just don't know
Oh no you, you just don't understand how many people have seen you
In the arms of, of of some other man
I've got to meet you and find you and take you by the hand oh my God my god
You've got to understand that I was seventeen
I didn't I didn't know a thing at all
I've got no reason I've got no reason at all
Oh no the time of my life oh I think you came too soon
Yeah you came too soon then
Oh and it could it could be tonight if I ever leave this room
(I never leave this room no)
Oh I wasted all my time on all those stupid things that only get me down
Get down, oh
Oh and the sky is crying out tonight for me to leave this town
So I'm gonna leave this town
Goodbye o.k.
Yeah you can leave me
Oh you, you can go some other place
You can't forget it
Yeah you know, you know that's o.k.
'cos, 'cos I own this town
Yeah, yeah I brought it to it's knees
Can you hear it crying? can you?
Can you hear it begging to me 'please? '
I know it's coming so soon now oh, oh it's on it's way
Oh no oh no oh I can hear them say, they say I can't survive
They say i, I'll never leave the ground
They say it's all a lie and now and now it's coming down
Oh baby now
Time of my life oh I think you came too soon
Yeah you came too soon now
Oh and it could oh it could be tonight if I ever leave this room
(I never leave this room now)
Oh oh oh

So I'm gonna go gonna be there

And if I messed it up baby
Then, that's all up to me
And if you go then, then I won't follow, no, no
'cos so many times I've been, I've been thinking maybe, oh maybe I should
No, i, I'm gonna stay

Oh the sky and stars and God will never ever laugh
Me and stars and moon are falling down.

My Legendary Girlfriend
You know sometimes...when we're lying together...
And I know you're asleep...i can hear the soft sound of your breathing...
So I get up...and I go to the window...outside...i can see all the houses...
Curtains shut tight against the night...asleep beneath the roof-tiles...
And as I stand here...i wonder...i wonder how many more times...
I'm gonna come here...i wonder how many more times...I'm gonna lie here...
And most of all...most of all I wonder...i wonder what it means...
I just wanna know what it means...so I woke her...
And we went walking through the sleeping town...
Down deserted streets...frozen gardens grey in the moonlight...
Fences...down to the canal...
Creeping slowly past the cooling towers...
Deserted factories...looking for an adventure...
I wandered the streets calling your name...jumping walls...
Hoping to see a light in the window...let me in...
Let me come in...let me in tonight...
Oh I see you shivering in the garden...
Silver goose-flesh in the moonlight ...she's balancing...
There are so many others...with unbroken eyes...
No cellulite afternoons... and she is balancing...
Balancing on the edge of ugliness tonight...
She is balancing...

Good god!
My legendary girlfriend,
She is crying tonight,
Oh no she doesn't feel right,
She's got no-one to hold,
Her love is a sham,
He is dancing somewhere.
Oh no he doen't care,
Oh well, he'll never know.

Jump...touch my hair...i wanna...i don't care...cos tonight...we could,
Maybe we...maybe we can touch the sky...do you think that we can...
Do you think that we can...touch the sky...please...i know...
I know it's not forever...but tonight I don't care...
Your skin so pale in the moonlight...
And the way your lips swell up when you're asleep...
Nothing else matters...do you know how much I want you? ...
Can you feel how much I want you? ...
Oh
Pitsmoor woman
Oh let
Oh let me in tonight

My legendary girlfriend,
She is crying tonight,
Oh no she doesn't feel right,
She's got no-one to hold.
Her love is a sham,
He is dancing somewhere.
Oh no he doen't care,
Oh well, he'll never know.
And all the stars came out tonight,
And the moon came on it's face,
It shone right though the clothes she wore,
It shone right through the dress she wore.
Good god

Oh, y'know...listen...listen...please...oh...i just wanna...
I just wanna... ...he falls to sleep again...no cheese tonight...she knows

My legendary girlfriend,
She is crying tonight,
Oh no she doesn't feel right,
She's got no-one to hold.
Her love is a sham,
He is dancing somewhere.
Oh no he doen't care,
Oh well, he'll never know.
And all the stars came out tonight,
And the moon came on it's face.
It shone right through the dress she wore,
It shone right through the clothes she wore.
And the stars and the moon,
And the stars all came down today.
Oh please love me tonight
Good God now!back to top
Death II
Oh uh-uh-uh oh
Hey oh now the lonely nights begin and there is nowhere left to go
But watch my spirit melt away, down at the d-i-s-c-o
I must have died a thousand times
The next day, I was still alive
And I still believe in you
Yes I do
Let's do it now
No I was not crushed, I did not cry
You know that everything's o.k.
It's just sometimes I wake at night
All alone and see your face
Oh, thousands feel the same but the night-time falls away
Oh no but still sometimes I feel oh sometimes I feel like jesus christ now
Hey I feel this night will never end and I will never see the day
Oh I was nothing when you came
I'm no-one now you've gone away
Oh all I do is just o.k.
All of my nights, and all of my days
Oh-oh if you came home right now
I'd run away
Oh run away now
O.k. now
Alright you can go out and make love to whoever, or whatever you like babe
So I go out and fill my eyes with other women
Oh they look good to me and I think that I might kiss them
Oh now it's two a.m. and I'm still stood here waiting
So I go home and wonder why I bother going
Yeah every week turns out the same the sun, the wind, the snow, the rain
Oh no but still sometimes I feel
Oh sometimes I feel like jesus christ now
Hey I feel this night will never end and I will never see the day
Oh I was nothing when you came
I'm no-one now you've gone away
Oh all I do is just o.k.
All of my nights, and all of my days
Oh-oh if you came home right now I'd run away
I can't believe it
I can't remember your face anymore or the sound of your voice
Or any touch of your skin is a legend
By the way, did I tell you that I loved you?
Oh if I didn't I'm so sorry
You know I i really, I really meant to tell you it's o.k. there's no need to hurry
But the bed is full of memories, full of memories of you
Oh I've tried to get them out but but there's nothing I can do
Oh if I knew the moon I'd ask him
Shine his light in through your window and send your body home to me today
Hey I feel this night will never end and I will never see the day
Oh I was nothing when you came
I'm no-one now you've gone away
Oh all I do is o.k.
All of my nights, and all of my days
Oh-oh if you came home right now
I'd run away
Run away run away.back to top
