4 MINUTE WARNING

Four minutes left to go,

Is this the end then?

Message on your stereo,

Four minute warning,

Everybody wants to know,

What should we do?

A few short stories,

A four minute warning

Sasha stands in his yellow café,

Yes the heart of the city is here,

So he tells me,

Sitting on his red leather sofa,

He’s rolling another,

Man, I’ll see you when I see you,

Polly is said to be the next big thing,

In her high-heeled boots and her two inch earrings,

Heart of glass, Blondie, sings in her ear,

You’re a rock queen, honey and we all hear you!

Three minutes left to go,

Is this the end then?

Message on your stereo,

Four minute warning,

Everybody wants to know,

What should we do?

A few short stories,

A four minute warning

Lucy had a hard time with love,

But love recently chose the right time for Lucy,

Loving when you know it’s the final time,

She now holds time in her own mind

Yeah, Jimmies is a local for Michael,

A Guinness in one hand, in the other a fable, able,

I once asked are you a lonely man,

His reply was non-committal,

I am what I am, man

Two minutes left to go,

Is this the end then?

Message on your stereo,

Four minute warning,

Everybody wants to know,

What should we do?

A few short stories,

A four minute warning

Cry, laugh, feel love, peace, panic,

These are your four minutes,

(I’m counting you down, four minutes of sound,

It’s always a rush when you’re around)

The final story is one of me,

Who with four minutes left has used up three,

I think of you, I think of me,

Then I think of nothing, it’s the end you see, yeah!

One minute left to go,

Is this the end then?

Message on your stereo

ALONE WITHOUT YOU

I listened to your album

And I watched your favourite film,

Hey hey hey,

I missed you today,

I read those early letters

That were filled with early dreams,

Some of them materialised,

Others never seen,

We used to watch the world walking by

The truth is you’re not here,

Here I am, I’m screwed up again,

No matter what, which way I turn,

How am I feeling, slowly bleeding here for you,

And spending time with hope

And I don’t know why it is,

It’s just the way it is

What am I to say,

What am I to do,

What am I, alone without you

What am I to say,

What am I to do,

What am I, alone without you

I made your favourite dinner,

And I wore the shirts you loved,

Hey hey hey,

Just in case you came

Friends still ask about you,

And I say that you’re just fine,

And have you seen the world walking by?

The truth is you’re not here,

Here I am, I’m screwed up again,

No matter what, which way I turn,

How am I feeling, slowly bleeding here for you,

And spending time with hope

And I don’t know why it is,

It’s just the way it is

What am I to say,

What am I to do,

What am I, alone without you

What am I to say,

What am I to do,

What am I, alone without you

The truth is you’re not here,

And I’m screwed up again,

And I don’t know the reason why,

I don’t know why it is

And did I ever say,

That I just need your love,

And I want you back again,

I want you back again

You said that this isn’t yet our time,

So give me time,

To get you back again

What am I to say,

What am I to do,

What am I, alone without you

What am I to say,

What am I to do,

What am I, alone without you

Its for you that I fall out of bed in the morning,

Still checking the mail as I’m leaving,

I sit in the car without driving

GRAVITY

Never had, I imagined,

Such a beautiful situation,

Where everything I ever wanted is here,

Is right here

She is the rock I lean on,

So good it scares me,

She’s my condition,

My solution,

My way back every time

When the daylight wakes me in some place

I don’t wanna be,

She’s my gravity,

When I’m out of position

and nothing is working for me,

She’s my gravity

She brings me home,

She’s my gravity

All at once,

I’m in stitches,

She makes me laugh so hard I’m crying

I’ve never felt so animated before,

Oh no,

And when I’m losing myself,

Feel her arms around me

My affirmation, my direction,

My way back every time

When the daylight wakes me in some place

I don’t wanna be,

She’s my gravity,

When I’m out of position

and nothing is working for me,

She’s my gravity

She brings me home

My calling,

My way out,

So all things I’m about,

My best side by design,

So always in my mind

My condition, my solution,

My way back every time

When the daylight wakes me in some place

I don’t wanna be,

She’s my gravity,

When I’m out of position

and nothing is working for me,

She’s my gravity

When the daylight wakes me in some place

I don’t wanna be,

She’s my gravity,

When I’m out of position

and nothing is working for me,

She’s my gravity

She brings me home

She brings me home

She’s my gravity

HEAD IN THE CLOUDS

She makes me sleep outside on the pavement,

Spends my money,

The lights are on but nobody’s home,

Now aint that funny,

She likes to tell me when she’s met some other A-Z,

She’s my sun, yeah the one, and then some,

She says I talk for hours about nothing,

And then about nothing,

I bought a two-week break in the sun,

She says you aint coming,

And after all I count the seconds till she blinks again,

I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love,

Head in the clouds, she eats me whole,

A face in the crowd, my oversoul,

And I’m spinning out, I lose control,

And I don’t care,

She says give up boy you’re going nowhere,

So don’t even go there,

Just turn the television on,

And get the housework done,

I’m only half the man I am when she’s not pulling me,

She’s someone, yeah my sun, and then some,

Turns her back on me when I’m naked,

Don’t like looking,

Says I’m the worst thing she’s ever done,

And so is my cooking,

And in the end I watch her think until she speaks again,

I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love,

Head in the clouds, she eats me whole,

A face in the crowd, my oversoul,

And I’m spinning out, I lose control,

And I don’t care,

And I don’t care,

Poison in the coffee that she made for me,

Bullets from her brand new gun, a gift from me,

Head in the clouds, she eats me whole,

A face in the crowd, my oversoul,

And I’m spinning out, I lose control,

And I don’t care,

Head in the clouds, she eats me whole,

A face in the crowd, my oversoul

And I’m spinning out, I lose control,

And I don’t care,

And I don’t care

CLOSE TO THE EDGE

I was into,

Like a sudden fix from a bowl of sugar,

To you

And all that you were standing for,

Yeah, you knew,

I was so caught up that I could barely move,

To stop you,

From having everything and more

Do you pick me up,

To put me under

Break me in,

So you can choose your ways to put me back again

You can leave a hole like a nail in my head,

You can leave me turned into nothing instead,

You can leave me close to the edge,

You won’t ever hear me hit the ground

Are you into,

Have you given up, have we gone to far,

Do you wander,

Or are you staying where we are

I abhor you,

Yet all the while still I adore

Knowing you,

And all that might have been before

Do I say too much, to take you over

Break me in,

So I can choose my ways to put me back again

You can leave a hole like a nail in my head,

You can leave me turned into nothing instead,

You can leave me close to the edge,

You won’t ever hear me hit the ground

Cos I’m floored but not broken,

And I’m scarred but I’ll heal

Yeah I’m blissfully tortured,

Naked and real

And I’m stung and I’m sorry,

But I’m calm now and clear

Like the sky hanging over,

Like the scratch on my shoulder,

That I no longer feel, feel

I was into

Too close to the edge,

Too close to the edge

You can leave a hole like a nail in my head,

You can leave me turned into nothing instead,

You can leave me close to the edge,

You won’t ever hear me,

Ever hear me

Hit the ground

HOW DO YOU LOVE

Do you love, yeah

Can you tell me how it feels?

Is your heart running,

So fast it becomes still?

Is it true you breathe in butterflies?

Is it true you blow out stars?

When you love, yeah?

Does your mind open?

Do you see who you are,

When the walls that you build,

Start to fall to the ground,

Why do you never come down?

Boys and girls share crystal champagne kisses

Just to taste the rain

Racing cars and chasing satellites

We crash alone again

How do you love love?

How do you love love?

With your love, yeah

Can you catch your own reflection?

See your shell aching to keep the pearl inside

I have heard about your butterflies

I thought I saw your stars

Are you love when

The ground gives in but you’re

Finding yourself in a space

Where it’s all that you know

Magnified to your size

Why do you never come down?

Boys and girls share crystal champagne kisses

Just to taste the rain

Racing cars and chasing satellites

We crash alone again

How do you love love?

How do you love love?

Coming on like a wave,

I’ll be a slave

For all that you say that

I will be

It is you I adore

It is you I adore

Boys and girls share crystal champagne kisses

Just to taste the rain

Racing cars and chasing satellites

We crash alone again

How do you love love?

Love, Love, Love

Love, Love, Love

With you I could get happily wasted

Happily wasted

With you I see the answers

With you I’ll go insane

PIECES OF HEAVEN

Some people change,

Some stay the same,

Someone came into today,

Somewhere someone passed away,

And under a stone,

Just skin and bone,

No one wants to be alone,

When all we have is all we own,

What are all the voices saying?

Where are all you people going?

And if there’s a God,

Then why won’t he talk to me?

We cry, we learn,

We think about the things we’re crying for,

We try, we burn,

And then we try and try again,

When the troubles come,

When we’re not so strong

We need to breathe to carry on,

Still looking for pieces of heaven

Cat in a box,

Watching the clocks,

Chase my heart around the block,

Pictures of an astronaut,

And all the above,

Creatures in love,

Making plans then getting off,

Waiting for the rain to stop,

Where do words go when they’re spoken?

Why do some minds never open?

And if there’s a God,

Then why won’t he talk to me?

We cry, we learn,

We think about the things we’re crying for,

We try, we burn,

And then we try and try again,

When the troubles come,

When we’re not so strong

We need to breathe to carry on,

Still looking for pieces of heaven

Sweet dreams

Go under, over

Slipstream,

Above me

We cry, we learn, we walk

We try, we burn, we talk

We cry, we learn, we walk

We try and we burn

When the troubles come,

When we’re not so strong

And we need to breathe to carry on

Still looking for pieces of heaven

Still looking for pieces of heaven

TURN THE LIGHT ON

Shake my bones and curl my toes,

Nobody does it better,

Spilt my head up to the core

And wrap me round your finger

Take a look outside

There is nowhere left to hide

We’ve been swimming in circles for too long

Let us jump out of this bowl

Hear some music play down the radio

Lay an egg inside us all

Turn the light on,

Turn the light on

Let us climb out of this hole

Turn the light on,

Turn the light on

Walk with me

I’ll wash your feet

And find you a shoemaker

Meet new people

Dressed like you and me

But not as clever

Come on dive inside

No one knows if we’ll survive

We’ve been stood on this corner for too long

Let us jump out of this bowl

Hear some music play down the radio

Lay an egg inside us all

Turn the light on,

Turn the light on

Let us climb out of this hole

Turn the light on,

Turn the light on

Climb up the stairs,

Look up, don’t be scared

It’s just the sound of the city on wide screen

We could be fishes in the deep blue sea

Crystal clear as monogamy

Heliotherapy

Turn the light on

Turn the light on

Turn the light on

Let us climb out of this hole

Turn the light on

Turn the light on

Let us climb out of this hole

Turn the light on

Turn the light on

CRUSH

If you were the woman,

Crawling over my skin

My eyes are wide open,

Is it any wonder

It’s just evolution

Waiting on the corner

Waiting for the number 9 to come, come

Always feeling the crush

I’m looking for

Feels like a rush of blood

And you’re

Feeding me something,

I’m on the ceiling

Feeling, feeling,

Yeah, yeah, yeah

If you are my karma

Bit of sweet and sour

Feel you put me under

Boyfriend in a coma

Bliss in your pollution

Itching for an answer

Waiting for my sweet divine to come, come

Always feeling the crush

I’m looking for

Feels like a rush of blood

And you’re

Feeding me something,

I’m on the ceiling

Feeling, feeling,

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Feeling the crush

I’m looking for

Feels like a rush of blood

And you’re

Feeding me something

I’m on the ceiling

Feeling, feeling,

Yeah

Yeah

Yeah

BABY I’M NO GOOD

I set out to wander

Up lonely man street

Where faith and devotion,

I would hopefully meet

I went there with nothing

Packed as light as I could

And you begged me to stay,

Though you knew,

Baby I’m no good

I’ll love you forever

You’ll stay in my heart

But all that I wanted

Was doomed from the start

I thought you could save me

Well if anyone could

But I knew that you knew all along

Baby I’m no good

Not once was I faithful,

I cheated and lied

I know that you loved me

But my hands, they were tied

I followed the voices

Like a weak man should

And I guess they were right about me,

Baby I’m no good

In the end when I’ve fallen

Face down in the rain

And you come back to ask me

What I lost, what I gained

I’d probably answer

I did all that I could

But it wasn’t that much I’m afraid,

Baby I’m no good

No it wasn’t that much I’m afraid

Baby I’m no good

IF YOU WEREN’T LEAVING ME

I’m gonna stand on your parade

I need to jump into your grave

Gonna stalk you I’m afraid

Wanna be your F’ing pain

By the way, you know it’s all your fault

Yeah I will get into your head

And everyday out of your bed

I’ll buy you roses, paint em red

And then I’ll take you shopping

So come and get it,

What the hell you waiting for

What you waiting for

We could run away

We could climb a tree

We could crash a car

Be celebrity

We could rob a bank

We can play guitar

We can shoot a gun

We can go too far

Bring it on now,

Get it on now

Bring it on now,

Get it on now

All the things that we,

All the things that we could be

If you weren’t leaving me

I’ll carve your name into my skin

And every place that you have been

Watch you dream while you’re asleep

I haven’t slept now for a week

So come and get it,

What the hell you waiting for,

What you waiting for

We could run away

We could climb a tree

We could crash a car

Be celebrity

We could rob a bank

We can play guitar

We can shoot a gun

We can go too far

Bring it on now,

Get it on now

Bring it on now,

Get it on now

All the things that we,

All the things that we could be

If you weren’t leaving me

All the things that we,

All the things that we could be,

If you weren’t leaving me

Yeah we’ll jump from a plane

Then we’ll do it again

Ask what life is about

So we’ll take a year out

And we’ll learn politics,

And some new party tricks

And we’ll call our friend John

John

We’ll drink in a bar

We’ll walk in the park

We’ll meet at the end

And again at the start

And we’ll look for the light

When the daylight has gone

Then we’ll run out of breath

Take the whole world on

Yeah yeah,

Yeah yeah,

Yeah yeah

We could away

We could climb a tree

We could crash a car

Be celebrity

We could rob a bank

We can play guitar

We can shoot a gun

We can go too far

Bring it on now,

Get it on now

Bring it on now,

Get it on now

All the things that we,

All the things that we could be

The things I’d do for you

1 cry out

2 free a bird

3 get a better job

A 4 letter word

5 is a hi-fi

6 on the beach

24/7 baby,

8 days a week

Come on now,

Get it on now

Come on now

All the things that we could be

If you weren’t leaving me

MY LIFE

Won’t somebody tell me

Just what’s going on

Won’t somebody hear me

I can’t do right for wrong

Won’t somebody help me

I feel I’ve come undone

There’s something going wrong

In my life

My life

She ripping out the heart

Tearing me apart

My life

Can anybody hold me

Make everything alright

Can anybody show me

How to numb the pain inside

Get me through the night

Baby’s turned the tide

Of my life

My life

She’s ripping out the heart,

Tearing me apart

Pulling out the plug

I’m scarred from where she’s cut

My life

(She stole my soul

She cuts me up)

Tearing up the pages

That I’m from

Breaking up the ground

I walk upon

Making my religion

And she can’t begin to understand

She cannot see

My life is in her hand
