Lyrics

It Could Have Been A Brilliant Career (Belle And Sebastian)

It could have been a brilliant career
Paining lines in a school that was too well known
Paining lines with a friend that had gone before
She challenged everyone to a fight
But the prefects all backed down
And they ran her out of town
Cause she drank and swore and spoke
Out of turn, she was the village joke
She had a stroke at the age of 24
It could have been a brilliant career
Getting clients to finance her strategies
Filling time in on Safeways on Saturday
She wears the clothes of an emperor
But her paintings are a sham
And they're going for a grand
When the dealers come to view
Do you ever see the real you?
He had a stroke at the age of 24
It could have been a brilliant career
Selling lies to the boys with the old Dansettes
Pulling the wool, playing the fool, it's no wonder that
He is dribbling spit tonight
And the one he sent away
Was the only one who stayed
With a spoon and a decent book
And you can tell by the way she looks
She is sorry and resigned
As he wets himself for the final time

Don't You Sometimes Wish (Zed)

Don't you sometimes wish that they would leave us all alone
In an undefined unequal kind of way we would be home
run down to the mailbox see if they forgot again
and remind me not to answer when they.....

(CHORUS)
Call I will be gone
Just leave the door ajar and run
Cos when they find you they'll just tie you down
And i'll never hear you call

What I need is something that will make me smile again
keep me up 'til midnight dreaming
And nothing hurts like they do even when they're on their own
so believe me when i tell you not to.....

(CHORUS)
Call I will be gone
Just leave the door ajar and run
Cos when they find you they'll just tie you down
And i'll never hear you call

Cos when they find.....

Don't you sometimes wish
Don't you sometimes wish
Don't you sometimes wish
Don't you sometimes wish that they would leave us all alone
Don't you sometimes wish
And don't you sometimes wish that they would leave us all alone.

The Mess We're In (PJ Harvey)

Can you hear them?
The helicopters?

I'm in New York
No need for words now
We sit in silence
You look me in the eye directly
You met me
I think it's Wednesday
The evening, the mess we're in

The city sun sets over me
The city sun sets over me

Night and day
I dream of
Making love to you now baby
Love making on screen
Impossible dream
And I have seen
The sunrise over the river
The freeway, reminding of
This mess we're in

The city sun sets over me
The city sun sets over me

What were you wanting?
I just want to say
Don't ever change
And thank you
I don't think we will meet again
I really must leave now
Before the sunrise
Above skyscrapers
The sin and
This mess we're in

The city sun sets over me
The city sun sets over me

The Dreaming (Kate Bush)

"Bang!" goes another kanga
On the bonnet of the van
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."
Many an Aborigine's mistaken for a tree
'Til you near him on the motorway
And the tree begin to breathe
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."

("Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha")

Coming in with the golden light
In the morning
Coming in with the golden light
Is the New Man
Coming in with the golden light
Is my dented van

Woomera
"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-
A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-
Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-
I-i-i-i-i-
Me-me-me-me-me."

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-"
Woomera
"A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-
Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-
I-i-i-i-i-
Me-me-me-me-me."

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-
A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-
Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-"
...

The civilised keep alive
The territorial war
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."
Erase the race that claim the place
And say we dig for ore
Or dangle devils in a bottle
And push them from the
Pull of the Bush
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."
You find them in the road
"See the light bounce off the rocks to the sand."
In the road

Coming in with the golden light
In the morning
Coming in with the golden light
With no warning
Coming in with the golden light
We bring in the rigging
Dig, dig, dig, dig away

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-
A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-
Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-
I-i-i-i-i-
Me-me-me-me-me"

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-"
Woomera
"A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-
Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-
I-i-i-i-i-
Me-me-me,"

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-
A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-"
Woomera
"Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-
I-i-i-i-i-
Me-me-me-me-me,"

"Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-
A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-
Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-
I-i-i-i-i-"
Woomera
"Me-me-me-me-me."

Ma-ma-many an Aborigine's mistaken for a tree
("La, la, oo-ooh!")
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."
You near him on the motorway
And the tree begin to breathe
Erase the race that claim the place
And say we dig for ore
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."
Dangle devils in a bottle
And push them from the Pull of the Bush
"See the sun set in the hand of the man."

"Bang!" goes another kanga
On the bonnet of the van
"See the light bounce off the rocks to the sand."
You find them in the road
"See the light ram through the gaps in the land."
In the road
"See the light."
("Push 'em from the")
Pull of the Bush
"See the light bounce off the rocks to the sand."
("Push 'em from the")
Pull of the Bush
"See the sunset in the hand of the man."

("Oh, re mikayina!")

Kite (Kate Bush)

(Come up and be a kite...)

Beelzebub is aching in my belly-o
My feet are heavy and I'm rooted in my wellios
And I want to get away and go (I wanna be, I wanna be)
From all these mirror windows
I look at eye level, it isn't good enough
And then I find it out, when I take a good look up
There's a hole in the sky (there's a whole) with a big eyeball (there's a whole in the sky)
Calling me

Come up and be a kite
And fly a diamond night
A diamond kite, diamond kite
A diamond kite, diamond kite
Ooooh, what a diamond!

A diamond kite, on a diamond flight
Over the lights, under the moon
Over the lights, under the moon
Over the moon
Over the moon

Come up and be a kire

I feel a rush along my body like a bullet
I'm 2D, after a push and pull feeling
And I want to get (I wanna be, I wanna be) back to safe home
I love the homeland dome
I got no limbs, I'm like a feather on the wind
I'm not sure if I want to be up here at all
And I'd like to be (I'd like to be, I'd like to be) back on the ground
But I don't know how to get down

Come up and be a kite
And fly a diamond night
A diamond kite, diamond kite
A dimaond kite, diamond kite
Ooooh, what a diamond!

A diamond kite, on a diamond flight
Over the lights, under the moon
Over the lights, under the moon
Over the moon
Over the moon

Come up and be a kite
Come up and be a kite

HERE COMES MY GIRL (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers)

You know , sometimes, I don't know why,
But this old town just seems so hopeless
I ain't really sure, but it seems I remember the good times
Were just a little bit more in focus

But when she puts her arms around me,
I can, somehow, rise ab ove it
Yeah man, when I got that little girl standing right by my side,
You know, I can tell the whole wide world, "Shove it,"

Hey, here comes my girl, here comes my girl,
Yeah, she looks so right, she's all I need tonight

Every now and then, I get down to the end of a day,
I'll have to stop, ask myself, "What've I done?"
It just seems so useless to have to work so hard,
And nothin' ever really seem to come from it

And then she looks m e in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever,"
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right,
I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it

Hey, here comes my girl, here comes my girl,
Yeah, she looks so right, she's all I need tonight

Yeah, every time it seems like there ain't nothin' left no more,
I find myself havin' to reach out and grab hold of somethin'
Yeah, I just catch myself wonderin', waitin', worryin'
About some silly little things that don't add up to nothin'.

And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever,"
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right,
I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it.

Hey, here comes my girl, here comes my girl,
Yeah, she looks so right, she's all I need tonight

The Only Constant Is Change (BT)

First we are explicably where we are
Chaste and burned - we're comfortably loveless
In a trillion years, the stars will no longer shine
We'll remain.
Get it right or come back again
My love...

Make it clear - integrate this love and fear
Still hopelessly hopeful
Wounded child seeking wonderful
As closed as I am
Born a craftsman of shifting sands
What lies I learned
Lessened my 'bility to be present

My love will never change
Though we've ruined everything
The stars still conspire for us
Until our final breaths

We need more love in the world
We need more hope in the world
Build more joy in the world
We crave more love...

My love will never change
Though we've ruined everything
The stars still conspire for us
Until our final breaths
[x2]

The only constant is change

My love will never change
Though we've ruined everything
The stars...

The only constant is change

Ize Of The World (The Strokes)

I think I know what you mean but watch what you say
'cause they'll be try to knock you down in some way
Sometimes it feels like the world is falling asleep
How do you wake someone up from inside a dream?

You never wondered and searched for this place in the night
You gotta follow this field like following light
But such a music was born and brought you round
And I'll take you right there but it's meaning direction
I'll trip you up

You said that you smiled
It not in your eyes
Your eyeballs won?t change
It's the muscles around your eyes

An egg to fertilize
A pulse to stabilize
A body to deodorize
A life to scrutinize
A child to criticize
We live just to modernize
Instead of being terrorize
Generations to desensi?

You're dreams are sweet and obsessed
And you're overworked
You've over taken my visions of being overlooked
I'm disappointed with the idea P-P-B
To see such our power in our hands all wasted on greed
In my head
There's not two instincts
I don't like that chances
Thus free and detached
Bullshit they don't!

She said that music was born
And a touch from your heart
Easy free time to free months
Are from falling apart

Night after night
You turn off the light
You don't fall asleep
Right away
Only, only then

A bed to organize
A product to advertise
A market to monopolize
Movie stars you idolize
News to scandalize
Enemies to neutralize
No time to apologize
Shot them to tranquilize
Weapons to synchronize
Cities to vapor-i


[By Dd]

Lost (Anouk)

If roses are meant to be red
and violets to be blue
why isnt my heart ment for you
my hands are longing to touch you
I can barely breathe
starry eyes make me melt
right in front of me
lost in this world
I even get lost in this song
and wgen the lights go down
that is where I'll be found
this music's irresistable
your voice makes me skin crawl
innocent and pure
I guess you heard it all before
mister inaccessible
will this ever change
one thing that remains the same
you're still a picture in a frame
lost in this world
I even get lost in this song
and when the lights go down
that is wgere I'll be found
I get lost in your eyes
and when the lights go down
that's where I'll be found
am I the only one

Take It To The Top (Peter Andre)

Take it to the top
'Cos I never wanna stop
To the top, c'mon

(CHORUS)
Take it to the top
'Cos I never wanna stop
To the top, come on
Don't try to play me down
Take it to the top
'Cos I never wanna stop
To the top, come on
Break it down

I call you on the telephone
To find out what you like
Can I be the special one
To make it all right

Let me touch you everywhere
My feeling is pure desire
All you do is call my name
You set my world on fire

You know I'll be there for your love
I wanna do you up
Let me be your everything
Let me touch you like no others
Gonna touch you there

(chorus)

Here it is, another night
Doin' it with my lady
Well, everything seems alright
And boy! She's drivin' me crazy

If we're gonna take our time
To make this thing feel so good
Then we're gonna make it last
Baby I know we could
You know I'll be there for your love
I wanna do you up
Let me be your everything
Let me love ya baby like no others
Gonna love ya

(chorus x 2)

You know I'll be there for your love
I wanna do you up
Let me be your everything
Let me do you, let me do you

(repeat chorus to end)
