How the mighty fall

HOW THE MIGHTY FALL: 18 avril 2005

THEY DO

Love yourself if you want

Cry a bit

Laugh a lot

Throw a stone

Take a plane

Start again

Give yourself a chance not a nosebleed

Have a course

Meet your friends

Visit space… visit space

Say hello to someone

For the road you need one

Choose a song

So that your heart can sing

Is it how it is?

How you make it?

No one knows everything

And if you’re wondering

Do the years fly by too soon?

They do

And if you’re wondering

If the skies look down?

It’s true,

They do

They all look out for you

Make yourself

Cry a dream

Get a job

Learn to drive

Kiss your girl

Or a man

When you can

Find the one you love

Who you walk side by side

You might live in a house

You may fall out

But you might watch your children grow

And if you’re wondering

Do the years fly by too soon?

They do

And if you’re wondering

Do the skies look down?

It’s true

They do

They all look out for

all look out for you

when you lose your way

when all that you know turn on you

when they let you down

love is all that there’s to do

when you lose your way

when all that you know turn on you

when they let you down

love is all that there’s to do

SORRY LATELY

You think that there’s something wrong?

Maybe I stayed too long

Or maybe

You’re just getting into me

Can’t get to sleep again

Spending our lives away

But you don’t know what you mean to me do ya?

do you wanna take me over?

Do ya, do ya?

I feel so alive

Feels like I’ll live forever

I’m not afraid no more

I’m not afraid no more

I am so now here

Standing in a moment

Her love flows like a river

Until she says it’s over

Come in you’ll catch a cold

Maybe we’re getting old

Or maybe we’re just getting into it

When are you coming round?

We’re going underground

We don’t even know how we’re doing it

Do ya?

Do you wanna make me over do ya? do ya?

I feel so alive

Feels like I’ll live forever

I’m not afraid no more

I’m not afraid no more

I am so now here

Standing in a moment

Her love flows like a river

Until she says it’s over

I’ve been losing myself here lately

Sorry lately

I feel so alive

I’ve been losing myself here

Feel alive

I’ve been losing myself here

So don’t, so don’t, go don’t ever go away

Don’t ever go away

So don’t, so don’t, go, don’t ever go away

Come in you’ll catch a cold

Maybe we’re getting old

Or maybe we’re just getting into it

MAKIN’OUT

I’ll be the one who brings you coffee when you can’t get up

I’ll be the one who turns the light out when you go to sleep

I’ll be the one who turns your stomach into something else and you say

Shut up, shut up, every time I say

I’ll be the one who takes your coat off, one to take the blame

I’ll be the one you call your lover, every now and then

You’ll be the one who keeps me sober, one to keep me sane and you say

Shut up, shut up, every time I say it

And I’d cut my fingers to the bone,

And I’d split my sides in for you

Tonight, we throw ourselves away

And we make it every time

When I thought I was ok

You said I was alright

As the night comes crashing down

We catch ourselves a line

Yeah we’re only makin’ out

If we make it out alright

I’ll be the one who stands beside you in the photograph

I’ll be the one that’s in your water when you want me there

I’ll be the one you’re falling over every time you laugh and you say

Shut up, shut up, every time I say

I’ll be the one who keeps you guessing, who swears a lot

I’ll be the one that let your colour in the white wash

You’ll be the one that knocks the man out I was beating up and you say

Shut up, shut up, every time I say it

And you cut my face, I told you so

I’d tear my eyes out for you

Tonight, we throw ourselves away

And we make it every time

When I thought I was ok

You said I was alright

As the night comes crashing down

We catch ourselves a line

Yeah we’re only makin’ out

If we make it out alright

And I’d cut my fingers to the bone,

And I’d split my sides in for you

Tonight, we throw ourselves away

And we make it every time

When I thought I was ok

You said I was alright

As the night comes crashing down

We catch ourselves a line

Yeah we’re only makin’ out

If we make it out all right

WAITING FOR THE GIRL

The pope is on the tv

The queen is in the news

My dinner’s in the oven

Michelle she got the blues

The grape is good for picking

The train it runs on time

My mouth is filling up

And I pour a glass of wine

Police are on the steakout

The cat is on the prowl

The prize is in the basket

The pictures on the wall

The seed is in the paper

The mouse don’t make a sound

The neighbours there are fucking

The sun is going down

And we’re all

We’re all

Waiting for the girl to call

The clothes are in the washer

The kids are leaving school

My dad just bought a donkey

The other night was cool

The club is never open

The lights are never green

Inside I think I’m laughing

I’d like to hear you scream

There’s nothing on the tv

Put on the radio

The song well I’ve heard better

I hate the video

My mates are coming over

There’s nothing left to eat

My cat has eaten so much

She cannot see her feet!

But we’re all

We’re all

Waiting for the girl to call

There’s a party wanna crash this Friday

Heeey Waiting for ya

I killed the bottle

Now my head feels funny

Heeeey Waiting for ya

The guys start leaving

said they feel like going out

If I get lucky lady

You’ll talk dirty

Waiting for the girl to call

Waiting for the girl to call

BELIEVE IN THE BOOGIE

Oh oh oh oh oh

There’s a friend of mine

Who’s wasting all his money

Oh oh oh oh oh

Think he’s had his time

Think he’s lost his mind

Still a friend of mine

Oh oh oh oh

oh oh oh oh

oh oh oh oh oh

could have had it all

from the Albert hall

to the uni-ball

how the mighty fall

but I see them and us in you and me

and what was once before again maybe

cos I believe in the boogie baby

times are changing

everything will come around

we’re just moving in circles baby

all or nothing

everything will come around

oh oh oh oh oh

he’s a lonely gone

but isn’t everybody

oh oh oh oh oh

Please to meet the sun

Pulls himself undone

Life can weigh a ton

But I see them and us in you and me

And what was once before again maybe

Cos I believe in the boogie baby

Times are changing

Everything will come around

We’re just moving in circles baby

All or nothing

Everything will come around

I believe in the boogie baby

Times are changing

Everything will come around

We’re just moving in circles baby

All or nothing

Everything will come around

(woooowoowooooo)

(oh oh oh oh ……………….)

I believe in the boogie baby

times are changing

everything will come around

we’re just moving in circles baby

all or nothing

everything will come around

I believe in the boogie baby

times are changing

everything will come around

we’re just moving in circles baby

all or nothing

everything will come around

3.15

Take the ball and start it rolling

Drive yourself on propane

Pull yourself apart mon ami

(If I was your boyfriend)

Put your head down in the fast lane

Come and give me your time frame

Don’t just play the part, be free

(If I was your boyfriend)

Liking your body popping

Your lips look good for sticking

Sounds like the world is talking

Yeah I think I’m into your thing

If you take your love away now

Don’t come back for more

If you think you’ll get your way now

I’ll show you the door

If you say you want to play now

You can take me home

Do you know what time it is now?

3:15

Grab yourself an amplifier

Yeah, you got my number

All the way to Grace and back

(If I was your girlfriend)

Take your best shot on the liquor

Throw a game of poker

Time to make your peace with that

(If I was your girlfriend)

I feel your dinner cooking

Dessert lies in the oven

You know you’re good for something

Lord I hope nobody’s watching

If you take your love away now

Don’t come back for more

If you think you’ll get your way now

I’ll show you the door

If you say you want to play now

You can take me home

Do you know what time it is now?

3:15 (x2)

Breathe,

I wanna catch your breath

Catch your breath

I wanna catch your breath…

WASTING AWAY

If angels fall,

I don’t know if I’ll be any use at all

Alone we were, inseparable

you lied to me,

I didn’t see it come,

And now I’m on my own

for the words that left your mouth were terminal

together we’re unsuitable

I pray for thee, I pray for me.

Carry on wasting my time, yeah I’m wasted

if you wanna waste all my time, then I’m wasting away.

Why dont you murder me?

why dont you?

who’s gonna run for you? who’s gona run for you now?

We’re not so strong

I never knew it any better til the fall

a friend I saw, he said today, you think too much,

yeah I’m trying to give it up

and still I can’t press play

or find the words when there is nothing left to say

I don’t request your sympathy

I thought of you, I think of me.

Carry on wasting my time, yeah I’m wasted

if you wanna waste all my time, then I’m wasting away.

Why don’t you murder me?

why don’t you?

who’s gonna run for you? who’s gonna run for you now?

wasting away! wasting away! wasting away! wasting away! wasting away!

care for me, care for me, when the angels come (never gonna come.. don’t stop)

care for me, care for me, when the angels come (never gonna come.. don’t stop)

Calm…

HAIL MARY

In a town, there’s a house,

In the house there’s a bed,

in the bed, there’s a man on his back.

She said, she likes it like that

In a room, there’s a print of a Klimpt in a frame

starring down off the wall, wall ,wall

Is there a God for us all?

Fade to the man on the bed he said

Darling when you come for me,

Hail Mary!

Darling when you set me free,

Hail Mary!

Darling when you look my way,

You always seem to be,

the better part of me,

Hail Mary…

There’s a heart in a cage

and the heart, like a clock

til it stops sends the blood to his veins

back on the surface again.

In a room, in the room with a view of the love that is killing his pain, pain, pain

into the walls of his sin

he’s breaking out as she’s breaking in

Darling when you come for me,

Hail Mary!

Darling when you set me free,

Hail Mary!

Darling when you look my way,

You always seem to be,

the better part of me,

You always seem to be,

the better part of me,

You always seem to be,

the better part of me,

You always seem to be,

the better part of me,

Hail Mary

I’m a man in a room

with a view of the stars hanging over the town

Hell Mary where are we know?

I’m looking up

are you looking down?

Darling when you come for me,

Hail Mary!

Darling when you set me free,

Hail Mary!

Darling when you look my way,

You always seem to be,

the better part of me

Darling when you come for me,

Hail Mary!

Darling when you set me free,

Hail Mary!

Darling when you look my way,

You always seem to be,

the better part of me,

Hail Mary…

(conversation téléphonique)

STAND

A bag of years, a cup of tears, lie in a glass

and every line on my face has a tale to tell

for I have worn this skin I live in and so I will until I’m dying

I’ve had it good, had it bad, until it’s over

Stand if you wanna know yourself

stand if your heads with someone else

stand when you feel like making up

stand when you think you’ve had enough

A set of words, a busy mind lie in a bed

And everyday there is a way I’ve yet to walk

so many times I took for granted

when love is all I’ve ever wanted

to come alive, see the sights, stay up late and then it’s over

Stand if you love the one you’re with

stand when there’s nothing else to give

stand, cos it’s all you’ll ever know

stand, cos there’s nowhere left to go

stand if you have something to say

stand if you need a place to stay

stand if you wanna be alone

stand anywhere where you want to

All that I am is all I’ll be

When you stand as a woman or a man

Stand anywhere you know you can

stand if you want without a sound

stand when you’re tired of sitting down

COME ON

She likes electro

I dont know much but I pretend to know

I used to breakdance though

Come on!

All at once my head is clear

All at once I find you here

Maybe this is how it is

And everything is in its place

You give me something left to see

A better world

A better me

Break the mould that I am in

Drain the colour from my skin

See I will give up all I have

To fill a moment now with you

Be a thought you wanna keep

Watch your silence whilst you sleep

Yeah I would give up all I have

To hear you say, you will stay

I’d give it all away

I’d give it all

Come on!

Cos I want you to know

That you’re all over me

And I don’t want to fall

So I land at your feet

Oh my God, you’re beautiful

And I will bow before you now

Fill me with your company

Bring me down to my knees

Tie me up and leave me here

Hold your music to my ear

Let me look at you again

Let me look and take it in

So I will give up all I can

To watch you light up when you smile

Take your pain and fears away

Hear you say that we’re ok

Yeah I will give up all I can

And maybe then you’ll feel the same

I give my heart away

Give my heart

Come on!

Cos I want you to know

That you’re all over me

And I don’t want to fall

so I land at your feet

And the tide’s coming in

And I can’t put it out

And I don’t want to lose

So I land at your feet

Won’t you step on my bones

Won’t you let me in

And I’ll kiss your palm this time

And hope that you will hear

Don’t wait for it

Don’t leave

And then

Then my only friend

You give me all you can

Say you’ll be my love
