I’ve been expecting you

I’VE BEEN EXPECTING YOU: 20 octobre 1998

STRONG

My breath smells of a thousand fags
And when I’m drunk I dance like me Dad
I’ve started to dress a bit like him

Early morning when I wake up
I look like Kiss but without the make up
And that’s a good line to take it to
The bridge

And you know and you know
‘Cause my life’s a mess
And I’m trying to grow so before
I’m old I’ll confess
You think that I’m strong
You’re wrong, you’re wrong
I’ll sing my song my song my song

My bed’s full of takeaways
and fantasies of easy lays
The pause button’s broke on my video
And is this real ‘cause I feel fake
Oprah Winfrey Rikki Lake
Teach me things I don’t need to know

And you know and you know
‘Cause my life’s a mess
And it’s starting to show so before
I’m old I’ll confess
You think that I’m strong
You’re wrong, you’re wrong
I’ll sing my song my song my song

If I did it all again I’d be a nun
The rain was never cold when I was young
I’m still young we’re still young
Life’s too short to be afraid
Step inside the sun

And you know and you know
‘Cause my life’s a mess
And I’m trying to grow

You think that I’m strong
You’re wrong, you’re wrong
I’ll sing my song my song my song

Life’s too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don’t have to take the blame

Life’s too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don’t have to take the blame

Life’s too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don’t have to take the blame

NO REGRETS

Tell me a story
Where we all change
And we’d live our lives together
And not estranged

I didn’t lose my mind
It was mine to give away
Couldn’t stay to watch me cry
You didn’t have the time
So I softly slip away…

No regrets, they don’t work
No regrets now, they only hurt
Sing me a love song
Drop me a line
Suppose it’s just a point of view
But they tell me I’m doing fine

I know from the outside
We looked good for each other
Felt things were going wrong
When you didn’t like my mother

I don’t want to hate
But that’s all you’ve left me with
A bitter aftertaste and a fantasy of
How we all could live

No regrets, they don’t work
No regrets now, they only hurt
[We’ve been told you stay up late]
I know they’re still talking
[You’re far too short to carry weight]
The demons in your head
[Return the videos they’re late]
If I could just stop hating you
[Goodbye]
I’d feel sorry for us instead

Remember the photographs (insane)
The ones where we all laugh (so lame)
We were having the time of our lives
Well thank you it was a real blast

No regrets, they don’t work
No regrets now, they only hurt
Write me a love song
Drop me a line
Suppose it’s just a point of view
But they tell me I’m doing fine

Everything I wanted to be
Every time I walked away
Every time you told me to leave
I just wanted to stay
Every time you looked at me and
Every time you smiled
I felt so vacant you treat me like a child
I loved the way we used to laugh
I loved the way we used to smile
Often I sit down and think of you
For a while
Then it passes me by and I think of someone else instead
I guess the love we once had is
Officially dead

MILLENNIUM

We’ve got stars directing our fate
and we’re praying it’s not too late
Millennium

Some say that we are players
Some say that we are pawns
But we’ve been making money since the day that we were born
Got to slow down
‘Cause we’re low down

Run around in circles
Live a life of solitude
‘Til we find ourselves a partner someone to relate to
Then we’ll slow down
Before we fall down

We’ve got stars directing our fate
and we’re praying it’s not too late
‘Cause we know we’re falling from grace
Millennium

Live for liposuction
And detox for your rent
Overdose at Christmas
And give it up for Lent
My friends are all so cynical
They refuse to keep the faith
We all enjoy the madness
‘Cause we know we’re going to fade away

We’ve got stars directing our fate
And we’re praying it’s not too late
‘Cause we know we’re falling from grace
Millennium

Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough
Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough
Millennium
Millennium

We’ve got stars directing our fate
And we’re praying it’s not too late
‘Cause we know we’re falling from grace
Millennium

And when we come we always come too late
I often think that we were born to hate
Get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes
And when we come we always come too late
I often think that we were born to hate
Get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes

We’ve got stars directing our fate
Millennium
And we’re praying it’s not too late
Millennium
‘Cause we know we’re falling from grace

Millenium

And we won’t stop…

PHOENIX FROM THE FLAMES

Silence shields the pain
So you say nothing
Feel they’ve rigged the game
And you’re done with lovin’
Only you can see the darkness in the northern lights

Phoenix from the Flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way
Oh yeah
Just like a Phoenix from the Flames

Wish they’d take you back
‘Cause you miss heaven
Too many bags to pack
So leave them where they are
Tonight you’re flying on a golden dream

Phoenix from the Flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way

Everybody’s talking
Nobody’s listening
Too busy thinking about what you’ve
Been missing
Everybody said you’re gonna take it
Too far baby now
Well come on

When you’re done with lovin’
It comes down to nothing
Can you feel it
Can you feel it
Can you feel it

Phoenix from the Flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way
Oh yeah
Just like a Phoenix from the Flames

Phoenix from the Flames
We will rise together
They will know our names
Can you feel it
Shelter me from pain
I always wanna feel this way
Oh yeah
Just like a Phoenix from the Flames

Why don’t you come and deny it
You know you can’t deny it
I always wanna feel this way
Just like a Phoenix from the Flames

WIN SOME, LOSE SOME

We didn’t think it’d last beyond summer
I met her father she met my mother
We didn’t have anywhere else to go
She said to me when we grow older
Will we still need young love on
Our shoulders
Does it just fade away
Will we ever know ?

She touched my face and called me
Her lover
I never thought that I’d need another

Your cool suburban sun
You’re foolin’ every one
You win some you lose some

I didn’t know what we had found
Just caught the bus and rode it to town
She wouldn’t notice anything else but me

Your cool suburban sun
You’re foolin’ every one
You win some you lose some

Dancing at discos
And moaning at phone bills
Torremolinos and sun burnt in high heels
Swap it and sell it
And drop it and smell it
All those years ago

She touched my face and called me
Her lover
I never thought that I’d need another

Your cool suburban sun
You’re foolin’ every one
You win some you lose some

Your cool suburban sun
You’re foolin’ every one
You win some you lose some

Now it’s gone, now it’s gone,
You win some, you lose some
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone,
You win some, you lose some
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone,
You win some, you lose some
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone,
You win some, you lose some

Win some

GRACE

Sometimes I feel like I am
Sailing on a sunken dream
I try to read the signs
But don’t know what they mean
I know when I’m with you
I’m a rich man baby

Grace, I’m not yet born
Come embrace
A soul that’s torn
I have got so much to give you

My heart is starved of love
In these radio days
I try to listen hard
To what my conscience says
I know I’ve sold my soul
I’m going to earn it back now

Grace, I’m not yet born
Come embrace
A soul that’s torn
I have got so much to give you

Now that you believe in me
We can fly away
Somewhere safe
I know that you will always be
Giving more than you take

I know when I’m with you
I’m a rich man baby

Grace, I’m not yet born
Come embrace
A soul that’s torn
I have got so much to give you
Grace, it can mend if you make my heart your friend

Grace
Grace
Grace
Grace

JESUS IN A CAMPER VAN

Ooh we’ve got a live one, featherweight icon
Heroes let ‘im down so he sleeps with the
Light on
And there’s nothin’ left to do but kneel down
And pray
Sail away with Caesar if you’re a non believer
Everybody get high if you’re a
Diamond geezer
It’s the devil that needs ya so go out and play

Blame yourself it’s easier
There’s no need to trouble her you trouble her

Jesus in a camper van he said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes
Especially when he goes round
Saying I am the way

And now it’s four in the mornin’ yes yes y’all in
No one can shoot but everybody’s scoring
Trust me it’s boring get down and pray

They told you not to meddle with the bass and
The treble
There’s dust on your needle and you think that
You’re a rebel
You’re Evel Knievel so get down and pray

Blame yourself it’s easier
There’s no need to trouble her you trouble her

Jesus in a camper van he said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes
Especially when he goes round
Saying I am the way

I am the way, I am the way, I am the way
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am, I am the way

Jesus in a camper van he said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes

Jesus in a camper van he said sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes

Blame yourself it’s easier
There’s no need to trouble her
Blame yourself it’s easier
There’s no need to trouble her

Jesus in a camper van he says sorry to
Leave you but I’ve done all I can
I suppose even the son of God
Gets it hard sometimes

HEAVEN FROM HERE

Know no fear I’ll still be here tomorrow
Bend my ear I’m not gonna go away
You are love so why do you shed a tear
Know no fear you will see heaven from here

I’ll shelter you make it alright to cry
And you’ll help too ‘cos the faith in myself
Has run dry
We are love and I just wanna hold you near
Know no fear we will see heaven from here

I see real love in your eyes
And it fills me up when you start to cry

I just wanna hold you near
We will see heaven from here

Well it all seems out of reach
I will take the blame if it keeps the peace
My shelf life’s short
Wish they’d make it more easy to follow
And I’ve been caught with nothing but
Love on my mind
We are love don’t let it fall on deaf ears
Now it’s clear we have seen heaven from here

KARMA KILLER

(You’ve been naughty…very very naughty)

Are you cut up
Or do you easily forget
Are you still around
Why haven’t you managed to die yet
You could prop up the bar in hell

How do you sleep
You’ve never loved
Why was I never good enough
You thought you’d leave me falling forever
Karma killer

Needless to say
I guess you know I hate you
You’re so full of sin
Even the devil rates you
I hope you choke
On your Bacardi and Coke

How do you breathe
Why don’t you cry
How come you never ask me why
You’re not a man stand and deliver
Karma killer

How do you sleep
You’ve never loved
Why was I never good enough
You thought you’d leave me falling forever

Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer

I hope you choke
On your Bacardi and Coke

Look what you didn’t take from me
Look what you didn’t take from me
Look what you didn’t take from me
Look what you didn’t take from me

I don’t need to take revenge
‘Cos they’re coming to get you
There’s no hope for you my friend
‘Cos they’re coming to get you

Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer
Karma killer

SHE’S THE ONE

I was her she was me
We were one we were free
And if there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

We were young we were wrong
We were fine all along
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
When you get to where you wanna go
And you know the things you wanna know
You’re smiling
When you said what you wanna say
And you know the way you wanna play
Yeah
You’ll be so high you’ll be flying

Though the sea will be strong
I know we’ll carry on
‘Cause if there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

When you get to where you wanna go
And you know the things you wanna know
You’re smiling

When you said what you wanna say
And you know the way you wanna say it
You’ll be so high you’ll be flying

I was her she was me
We were one we were free
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
Yeah she’s the one

If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one
She’s the one

If there’s somebody calling me on
She’s the one

MAN MACHINE

Sitting in the cheap seats underneath
The stars
I’m heading back to base, I’ll drop you off
At Mars
I’m sure I know your face or what star
You’re from
I try to make conversation but I’m too
Far gone

I’m a man machine
Drinking gasoline
Super human being
Shooting laser beams

How you gonna leave, when your bags
Ain’t packed
And how you gonna shoot, when we’re
Back to back
How d’you tell a joke, when you can’t laugh
You know that you’re the punchline, baby
Take a bath

I’m a man machine
Drinking gasoline
Super human being
I’m a queen’s dream

The dog has ate my homework today
It’s not done, it ain’t done
I have heard they’re not very well
In the sun

‘Cause I’m a man machine
I’m a queen’s dream
Drinking gasoline
I’m a queen’s dream

Yeah….Help

How you gonna live for love lying on
Your back
And how you gonna keep it clean in a
Dirty mac
How you gonna breathe when you’re lost
In space
You’re dazed and amused
Talking through a different face

‘Cause I’m man machine
Drinking gasoline
I’m a teen dream
I’m a man machine
I’m a man machine
I’m a man machine
Drinking gasoline

THESE DREAMS

She lies on the bed
With her hands in her head
And she screams
He gets a kick out of losing the plot so
It seems
He makes you all laugh so she’s the one
Doing harm
But how can you fight when she’s not
The one under his arm

These dreams have let you down
Take it don’t break it just turn it around
These dreams won’t let you down

You never stopped loving his misfortunate
Lazy ways
All the memories that you should’ve had
Are a cabaret haze
There’s just a hole where you know he
Should’ve been
There’s no one worse off than you
When you can’t describe what you’ve seen

These dreams have let you down
Take it don’t break it just turn it around
These dreams won’t let you down

Where do you go when you’re all alone
In your bed
Do you cry in your sleep ‘cos it’s
Better unsaid
Have you forgotten your past because
That’s how it seems
Is it too hard to think so you edit
Your dreams
And play them back again and again

These dreams have let you down
Take it don’t break it just turn it around
These dreams won’t let you down

These dreams have let you down
Take it don’t break it just turn it around
These dreams won’t let you down

You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow
You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow
You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow
You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow
You’ve got tomorrow tomorrow

STAND YOUR GROUND (morceau caché)

Stand your ground
You’re big enough
Stand your ground
You know too much
Today drifts into tomorrow
And you can almost taste the sorrow
Stand your ground
You’ve had enough
Lost and found
Diamond in the rough
Today drifts into tomorrow
You feel your soul’s been borrowed
Oooh, oooh…
Stand your ground
The water’s deep
Feel the sand beneath your feet
I know your prayers seem hollow
But when it’s hard they follow
Ooh, ooh…

STALKER’S DAY OFF (morceau caché)

I’ve been hanging around
Just in case you fall in love with me
I know you have doubts
I hear when you shout
Cos I understand you see

I was concerned when you said
You’d rather wake up dead
Than spend a day with me
I know that’s not you
I know and it’s true
They don’t understand you like I do

I’ve been hanging around
Just in case you fall in love with me
I know you have doubts
I hear when you shout
Cos I understand you see

[parlé:]
Hi, it’s me again…Yay, I got on parole!
Yeah, umm..If you could just..er..pick up the phone,
I’d like to talk to you, please!

I’ve seen misery
And have a strange empathy
With the woman who kidnaps her lover
This love ain’t a dream
I know it’s obscene
The calls that I left for your mother

I’ve been hanging around
Just in case you fall in love with me
I know you have doubts
I hear when you shout
Cos I understand you see

[parlé:]
I love you, too…everyday…perhaps someday we could meet…
face to face this time…[*rires*]
I’m sorry about that letter I sent you…
the newspaper cuttings and stuff…and blood… [*rires*]

I’ve been hanging around
Just in case you fall in love with me
I know you have doubts
I hear you when you shout
Cos I understand you see

Just tell me that you love me…
