OVER MY SHOULDER   (Original Version)
shut your mouth, and watch my lips
can't you feel the healing finger tips
coming down, on you like rain
so tell me now where do we remain

over my shoulder you go
back to a bar, that we both used to know

i used to work the night & day
nobody listened to a word i'd say
i didn't care who knew me then
someone stupid asked if we were friends, and

over my shoulder it goes,
and where it lands, i don't want to know

so shut your mouth, and watch my lips
cant you feel the healing finger tips
coming down, on you like rain
so tell me now where do we remain

for over my shoulder you go
back to a bar, that we both used to know

over my shoulder it goes
and where it lands, i don't want to know


TITANIC
murderers come dressed as suicides
they drag the donkeys who carry the shit
you're wondering where all of that hope went
i'm telling you now this it

everybody knows we sell mouthwash
as liquid gold or as rust
the rollerblade girls concrete the beaches
the coffee cups crumble to dust

on the titanic, groovy
the lifeboats blow in the wind

you're listening to your northern soul records
you're pumped up with the stax and the blues
i can't help it if I was born stupid
i'm thinking about buying some shoes

saxophones wait in the echo
i'm a good looking nineteen year old girl
hanging in the light like a gecko
inviting all men into my world

on the titanic, groovy
the lifeboats blow in the wind

on the titanic, groovy
the lifeboats blow in the wind

titanic - dont panic
titanic - dont panic
titanic
dont panic


BLACK AND BLUE
lights are shining all around this world
you want them all, but what you want is this girl
you can stick those rules, they're just second best
give you so much but you'll end up with less
give you money when what you need is love
it makes you smile pretending it's all enough

see the world now it's bruised black and blue
i want it all but all that i want is you
so give up the chance to be true
and all wind up like we knew we'd do
bruised black and blue

dream for tomorrow, live for today
someone, somewhere made you throw it away
spin to the bottom, turn to the top
lift up your eyes as if you're nearer to god
so get your bicycle and go earn your keep, there'll be
nine million cyclists here by this time next week

see the world now it's bruised black and blue
i want it all but all that i want is you
so give up the chance to be true
and all wind up like we knew we'd do
bruised black and blue

so many words are hard but true
we'll all wind up like we knew we'd do
bruised black and blue
bruised black and blue
bruised black and blue

TO BE SOMEONE (THE JAM)
to be someone must be a wonderful thing
a famous footballer or rock singer
or a big film star
i think i'd like that

to be rich and have lots of fans
and lots of girls to prove that i'm a man
and be number one, and loved by everyone

getting drugged up with my trendy friends
they really dig me, man, and i dig them
and the bread i spend, it's like my fame, it's quickly diminished

there's no more swimming in guitar shaped pools
there's no more reporters at my beck and call
there's no more cocaine, it's only ground chalk
there's no more taxis, yeah, we'll have to walk

but didn't we have a nice time
wasn't it such a nice time
didn't we have a nice time?

i realize i should have stuck to my guns
instead i shit out to be one of the bastard sons
and i lost myself, i know it was wrong, it cost me a lot

theres no more drinking when the club shuts down
i'm out here on my arse with the rest of the clowns
its really frightening without a bodyguard
so i stay confined to my lonely room

didn't we have a nice time
didn't we have a nice time
didn't we have a fine time?

to be someone must be a wonderful thing
to be someone must be a wonderful thing
to be someone must be a wonderful thing

SEXY SADIE (THE BEATLES)
sexy sadie what have you done?
you made a fool of everyone
you made a fool of everyone
sexy sadie, oh you'll get yours yet

sexy sadie, you broke the rules
you layed it down for all to see
you layed it
down for all to see
sexy sadie, oh you'll get yours yet.

one sunny day the world was waiting for a lover
she came along to turn on everyone
sexy sadie you're the latest and the greatest of 'em all

sexy sadie, what have you done?
you made a fool of everyone
you made a fool of everyone
sexy sadie, oh you'll get yours yet

BLACKBIRD (THE BEATLES)
blackbird singing in the dead of night
take these broken wings and learn to fly
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to arise.

blackbird singing in the dead of night
take these sunken eyes and learn to see
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to be free.

blackbird fly blackbird fly
into the light of the dark black night.

blackbird fly blackbird fly
into the light of the dark black night.

blackbird singing in the dead of night
take these broken wings and learn to fly
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to arise
you were only waiting for this moment to arise
you were only waiting for this moment to arise






WHEN YOU'VE GOT TO GO

this place is scaring me
outside the skies are muddy
i can not leave my seat
what with the streets being so bloody

but i suppose i've got to go
oh oh, when you've got to go
you've got to go

you cannot hold on me
the pace of laugh and laugter
i cannot ever see
the words for all the laughter

but i suppose i've got to go
oh oh, when you got to go
you've got to go

this place is scaring me
outside the skies are muddy
i can not leave my seat
what with the streets so bloody


i suppose i've got to go
got to go
when you've got to go

i suppose you've got to go
you've got to go
when you've got to go

i suppose i've got to go
oh oh, i've got to go
oh oh, i've got to go
i suppose i've got to go
oh oh, and you've got to go
you've got to go
go
go
go
go


i suppose i've got to go
oh oh, i've got to go
oh oh, i've got to go



THE TASTE OF DEFEAT
it's sold on paper
it's written on walls
it's laughed at in classrooms
and it's assembled in halls

it's dreamed of in nightmares
swept from the street
it's laughed at in courtrooms
it's the taste of defeat

and you hold me so tightly
that you break all my bones
lets pretend that we need each other so much
and then lets leave each other alone

it's written in classrooms
assembled in halls
it's whispered in courtrooms
it's written on walls

we dream it in nightmares
it's swept from the street
the sound of derision, mocking
the taste of defeat

you hold me so tightly
break all my bones
you say that we're nothing so much
that you leave me alone

hold me so tightly
and break all my bones
tell me you need me
so then won't you leave me alone

 

FINGERPRINTS

 

if heaven is a place upon your skin

that I may have touched from without to within

then dust yourself for fingerprints and grin

 

'cos I’m not going to stay

with these people whose ideas are just what other people say

I will walk away

from these feelings that are filling up my life with day

 

and I guess that I’ve been singing all my life

well that’s right, that is fine

I’ve been spending all your money and your time

well that’s right, that is fine

 

'cos we're not going to stay

from these feelings that are filling up our lives with days

we will walk away

from the people whose ideas are just what other people say

 

and if the crowd that is gathered is confused

trembling inside, in solitude

well they've got nothing left to use

yeah we've got all the bullets, but there’s no-one left to shot

 

I’m not going to stay

with the people whose ideas are just what other people say

I will walk away

from the feelings that are filling up my life with days

 

if heaven is a place upon your skin

that I may have touched from without to within

then dust yourself for fingerprints and grin
