You're wonderful...I miss you

Adam Ant/Marco Pirroni/Bonnie Hayes

Did I tell you how much I miss
Your sweet kiss?
Did I tell you I didn't cry?
Well I lied
I lie lie lied
Over real over
When I nearly hit the face I loved
So tired of packaging the anger
Always pushing you away

Did I tell you you're wonderful?
I miss you yes I do
Did I tell you that I was wrong?
I was wrong
Cos you're wonderful yeah

Did I tell you how much I miss
Your smile?
Did I tell you I was okay?
Well no way
No way way way

You're wonderful yeah yeah

Now now now each and every day
I realize the price I have to pay
You you're wonderful
And now for your information
I'm walking around like an arm decoration

You you're wonderful
So high I can't get over it
So deep I can't get under it
You
You're wonderful yeah
You're wonderful yeah yeah
You're wonderful yeah yeah
You're wonderful yeah yeah
Wonderful

Did I tell you you're wonderful?
I miss you yes I do
Did I tell you that I was wrong?
I was wrong
For so long long long

'till kingdom comes

Still my heart and hold my tongue
I feel my time, my time has come
Let me in, unlock the door
I never felt this way before
And the wheels just keep on turning
And the drummer begins to drum
I don't know which way I'm going
I don't know which way I've come

Hold my head inside your hands
I need someone who understands
I need someone, someone who hears
For you I've waited all these years

For you I'd wait til Kingdom Come
Until my day, my day is done
And say you'll come and set me free
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me

In your tears and in your blood
In your fire and in your flood
I hear you laugh, I heard you sing
I wouldn't change a single thing

And the wheels just keep on turning
The drummers begin to drum
I don't know which way I'm going
I don't know what I've become

For you I'd wait til Kingdom Come
Until my day, my day is done
And say you'll come and set me free
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me
Just say you'll wait, you&…

SNOW RUNNING

SNOW PATROL LYRICS

"Run"

I'll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You've been the only thing that's right
In all I've done

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we'll make it anywhere
Away from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I'll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we'll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can't raise your voice to say

Slower slower
We don't have time for that
All I want is to find an easier way
To get out of our little heads

Have heart my dear
We're bound to be afraid
Even if it's just for a few d…

The Black Man’s Question

The Black Man’s Question

Like the ignorant man I am
I really have to ask:
if the color white is a virtue
why don’t you whiten me?

It’s no insult to be Black,
don’t let it give you the blues,
even society ladies
wear their shiny black shoes…
and beautiful long black hair.
Let anyone here explain,
my question is very fair.
I really have to ask
like the ignorant man I am.

I ask without hesitation,
it’s something I don’t understand:
when the Lord who made us all
mixed His water and sand,
what color clay did He use
to give father Adam shape?
And if you want to shut me up
first answer—I’ll shut my traip.
Like the ignorant man I am
I really have to ask.

I ask (because I want to)
if being black is a crime.
I’ve never seen white letters
since the beginning of time
Christ’s holy cross was black,
that’s where our savior died,
and Mother Mary wore black
when Her Son Jesus died.
I really have to ask
if the color white is a virtue

The black man with his blackness
and the white man with his white,
all of us come to our end

Meat and Potatoes


My baby came to me lately
'Honey, please don't take this bad, but maybe
When you laid me
Could we try to spice it up?'

I looked across the table
First to see if she was joking
No joke
There was no flicker
Just a girl who wanted more

Than meat and potatoes
She may stop at whips and chains
She needs carousal
More arousal
A bit of pain

So we started by using handcuffs
We tried a can of cold whipped cream
I was allergic to so much dairy
She had to finish it all by herself

Then I slapped her
She wasn't expecting
So she hit me back
She friggin' cracked me
I got a nose bleed
She was angry
She wanted more

Than mean and potatoes
She may stop at pumps and drains!
She needs carousal
More arousal
A bit of pain

Invite the neighbours
Or total strangers
Give yourself a leg up, honey
Wear 'The Queen' mask
Put on the French basque
It's full of handy holes
If we're going to use them all
We're going to need more than

Meat and potatoes!
She may draw the line at dolls and freaks
She needs…

Merriweather's Belle and Sebastian best

Belle And Sebastian - The Boy With The Arab Strap Lyrics

A mile and a half on a bus takes a long time
The odour of
old prison food takes a long time to pass you by
When
you've been inside
Day upon day of this wandering gets
you down
Nobody gives you a chance or a dollar in this old
town

Hovering silence from you is a giveaway
Squalor and smoke's not your style
"I don't
like this place"
We better go
Then I compare notes
with your older sister
I am a lazy gett, she is as pure as
the cold driven snow
She accepts my confession

What did you learn from your time in the solitary
Cell of
your mind?
There was noises, distractions from anything
good
And the old prison food
Colour my life with the
chaos of trouble
Cause anything's better than posh
isolation
1 missed the bus
You were laid on your
back
With the boy from the arab strap
With the boy
from the arab strap

It's something to speak of
the way you are feeling
To crowds there assembled
Do
you ever feel you have gone too far?
Everyone suffers in
silence…

come to me

BJORK LYRICS

"Come To Me"

come to me
i'll take care of you
protect you
calm, calm down
you're exhausted
come lie down
you don't have to explain
i understand

you know
that i adore you
you know
that i love you
so don't make me say it
it would burst the bubble
break the charm

jump off
your building's on fire
i'll catch you
i'll catch you
destroy all that is keeping you down
and then i'll nurse you
i'll nurse you

come to me
i'll take care of you
you don't have to explain
i understand
