Always the Sun
Stranglers - Always The Sun




How Many Times Have You Woken Up And Prayed For The Rain?
How Many Times Have You Seen The Papers Apportion To Blame?
And Who Gets To Say?
Who Gets To Work And Who Gets To Play?
I Was Always Told At School Everybody Should Get The Same

How Many Times Have You Been Told If You Don't Ask You Don't Get?
How Many Liars Have Taken Your Money? Your Mother Said You Shouldn't Bet
But Who Has The Fun?
Is It Always A Man With A Gun?
Someone Must Have Told You If You Work Too Hard You Can Sweat

There's Always The Sun
There's Always The Sun
Always, Always, Always The Sun

How Many Times Have The Weathermen Told You Stories That Made You Laugh?
You Know it's Not Unlike The Politicions And The Leaders When They Do Things By Half
And Who Gets The Job?
Of Pushing The Knob
That Sort Of Responsibility You Draw Straws For If You're Mad Enough

There's Always The Sun
There's Always The Sun
Always, Always, Always The Sun...back to top
You'll Always Reap What You Sow
To think I knew you when you had nothing at all
And now you've got your back to the wall
It only goes to show, you'll always reap just what you sow

You had no reason for being so bad
You had the world in the palm of your hand
It only goes to show, you'll always reap just what you sow

I didn't think of vengeance, don't forget I loved you once
And now it's turned full circle, you just won't find another chance

Look how the mighty have managed to fall
Your fancy words didn't help you at all
It only goes to show, you'll always reap just what you sow

I didn't think of vengeance, don't forget I loved you once
And now it's turned full circle, you just won't find another chance

It only goes to show, you'll always reap just what you sow
It only goes to show, you'll always reap just what you sow

I didn't think of vengeance, don't forget I loved you once
And now it's turned full circle, you just won't find another chanceback to top

Just Look At That Girl
She Knows The World Owes Her Something
And She's Alright

She's Got Diamond Rings From Her Dad
She's Got Fancy Things From Her Dad

I Wouldn't Believe At All
Even If I Saw

Just Look At That Girl
Where Once She Wore Leather Jackets
Now She Wearing Furs
Just Look At That Girl
she Walks around Owning Everything
It's Not Even Hers

Big in America
Stranglers - Big In America




I Met A Roach In America
His Family Had A Massive Tree
They Live Just About Everywhere
He Was Big In America
He Was Big In America

I Met A Vet In America
He Was Alive He Was In Overdrive
He'd Just Been Around Everywhere
He Was Big In America
He Was Big In America

And When You're Big In America
You Like To Live In America
You Won't Be On Your Own
And Since You're Big In America
You Might As Well Make America Your Home
Big In America

I Met A Girl In America
She Wore The Pants Cross The Big Expanse
She Was Whipping Man Everywhere
She Was Big In America
She Was Big In America

And When You're Big In America
You Like To Live In America
You Won't Be On Your Own
And Since You're Big In America
You Might As Well Make America Your Home
Big In America

Shakin' Like a Leaf
When you're lying in your bed
Wide awake with sleepy head
Thinking you should look beneath
And then you're shakin' shakin' shakin'
See a full moon in the sky
Time to be away and fly
Seems to be the sole relief
It's got me shakin' shakin' shakin'

Oh silent night, give me some respite
Why must it be so brief?
It's got me shakin'
It's got me shakin'
Like a leaf

Now that autumn's hit the ground
Every day and every sound
Says the world is changing around
It's got me shakin' shakin' shakin'
See the villains on their screens
Doing battle with their teams
Another week delays their grief
It's got me shakin' shakin' shakin'

Oh silent night, give me some respite
Why must it be so brief?
It's got me shakin'
It's got me shakin'
Like a leaf

Shakin' shakin' shakin' like a leaf
Shakin' shakin' shakin' like a leaf
Shakin'
Like a leaf.back to top
Mayan Skies
I can see red is the colour of life in a Mayan sky
I can see green is the colour of jungle in Mayan skies

Mexico speaks at the sunrise

I can see yellow's the colour of gold under Mayan skies
Tempting children who came to get rich under Mayan skies

Mexico speaks at the sunrise

Mayan skies sleep talk with voices of lovers
In torture and suffering they soothe one another
The passion of youth kisses age in a nation
The Mayan skies painting a colour creation up above

Mayan skies sleep talk with voices of lovers
In torture and suffering they soothe one another
The passion of youth kisses age in a nation
The Mayan skies painting a colour creation up above

I can see red, green and yellow the colours of Mayan skies...back to top
