Cross My Heart

 

Look deep into the heart of Green's new songs

The sweet disciple sing-along's

The Christmas twinkle tinsel hangs

Upon my cracked and greasy grimy hands

 

Oh God forgive this feeble voice of faith

Will chain your trainers to the ground

Never young

 

I hope the summer's always cool

I hope you never have to sleep alone

Cross My Heart

Hope to die..

Same Band

 

Told you once

Exactly what you've got to do

I'm not trying to fuck with you

You're not on your own

 

Told you twice

I'd kiss you if you weren't a girl

Stamping your feet like a cobbled street

Going down...

 

We're in the same band

You say no but I say we're in the same band

 

Carry me and maybe I'll carry you

There are no absolutes here on our own

 

Trust in me

And maybe I'll trust in you

Cos maybe will have to do 'cos I can't find the proof

 

We're in the same band

You say no but I say we're in the same band

We're in the same band

You say no but I say we're in the same

Stay Young

 

In the future all this will be yours,

So do what you want.

You'll be dead and gone before

you find out how it works

 

Hey, kids - Rock and Roll is here,

So scream all you like.

It's a naked pagan glory

Celebrate the new.

          

My advice to all you boys and all you girls is

Never try to be old.

 

I wanna stay young, wanna grow old and never come undone,

I wanna go out, wanna have fun and never come back home.

 

It's a winter wonderland.

Everything is new.

Gary Glitter's gone to seed,

So who will lead us now?

 

My advice to all you boys and all you girls is

Never try to be old

 

I wanna stay young, wanna grow old and never come undone,

I wanna go out, wanna have fun and never come back home

Suckle

 

I'm cold and tired

A melting wire

With too much current passing through

 

I once was young and full of fire

But life is cruel and i am kind

 

Now that the shadows round my eyes

Look like storm clouds in the sky

The sun would be warmer

If it shined

 

As the floodgates open out

As the world turns upside down

There's nothing we can do but

Don't let go

Don't let go

 

Too much time to think

Suckle my love

 

I'm overtired

Left behind

I've lost the shapes I recognise

 

I once was young, and things were fine

But life is cruel and i am kind

 

People ask too much of me

Don't want what I've got to give

See my eyes full of love

 

As the floodgates open out

As the world turns upside down

There's nothing we can do but

Don't let go

Don't let go

 

Too much time to think

Suckle my love

Fame Thing

 

Fall into my arms

Up to my neck

Lavender glands

Ache in my bones

 

Wanna live on your face

Wanna fit you in place

Wanna fuck out your brains

You got a mouth, you can sing

 

Slide into my heart

Never apart

Long in the tooth

The homes of my youth

 

Wanna fix you a meal

Wanna cop a quick feel

Wanna feed you a line

Wanna fuck with your mind

 

(chorus)

 

You are my Fame thing

 

Back, back on your heads

Back to your beds

You're out of my mind

Into my eyes

 

Wanna mince on the moon

Wanna be a buffoon

Wanna set you alight

Wanna give you a fright

 

Foul madames are on show

Everyone knows

Nothing to lose

Nothing to gain

 

Wanna kiss you downstairs

Wanna spit out the pips

Wanna chew on your pearl

Wanna sell you the world

 

You are my Fame thing

 

Wanna shirt off your back

Wanna help you to pack

Wanna piss in the stream

Wanna tell you my dream

Wanna go all the way

Kiss the needles of fate

Well I fancy your mum

And i'm giving her some

I'm a voice from above

A denial of love

What a terrible shame

I just want fortune and fame

It's an emotional thing

I smile when I sing

I'll find someone new

I guess I'm jealous of you

Flower's not even dead

I'll put a hole in your head

Wanna give you a whirl

Wanna make you a girl

Wanna bleed on the screen

Wanna make the boys green

Wanna get you alone

On the end of the phone

Wanna tell you a lie

Wanna take all your time

I'm a reasonable type

Don't believe in your hype

Wanna... FUCK.

Happy Times (Are Coming)

Nobody else can see your colours

Nobody else can see you smile

Could this be the last time

Nobody else can feel you suffer

Nobody else can see you shine

 

As we crawl through the waves

Of delusion and faith

I have died a thousand times

But now I know you've been there too

So baby

Happy times are coming

 

Somebody else will watch you sleeping

Somebody else will feed your dreams

Could this be the last time

Somebody else will stop the bleeding

Somebody else will make you mine

 

As we crawl through the waves

Of confusion and faith

I have cried a thousand tears

And watched you dry them with a smile

So baby

Aire and Calder

 

Oh Aire and Calder

Dull dirty river

Smile Mona Lisa

Fire in the atmosphere

 

Go Aire and Calder

Bleak grey melancholia

Go somewhere or other

Whisper to me on the tide

 

Between here and now

Where the sky hits the ground

In faded splendour rise

Saw your reflection in the steel pile

Then realised it was mine

 

Roll like the thunder

Goole to Castleford

Then through the floodplains take me

Lie like love's big swollen eyes

 

Oh Aire and Calder

Life may come and go

Though time lasts forever

Luck was never on our side

 

Between here and now

Where the sky hits the ground

In faded splendour rise

Saw your reflection in the steel pile

Then realised it was mine

Sentimental Song

 

From dawn to dusk

When the day has torn its craters from your wanderlust

And the needle's cut a groove to which it can't adjust

In spite of us

 

And fire burns like ice now

If it's cold enough

Silver shines like gold until it's obvious

That it's not

 

We tried in vain awash with fake abandon

Romantic as a glitter ball

Of all the fantasies affected

Just came and went and left me cold

 

Sentimental songs

We all sing along

 

Sawn to dust

Now friendship serves a purpose

Like a tablecloth

That's frayed around the edges but is good enough

To the uninvited few

 

And all the strains of love surrender

Were wasted on me long ago

Of all the fallacies created

After all there's only one

 

Sentimental song

And we all sing along

We all sing along

We all sing along

 

(La la la...)

Floodlit World

 

Sing for me

I will sing for you

As we wander through our floodlit world

Close your eyes

Look up to the skies

As the soft earth falls from under you

 

Sometimes when it rains there's a rainbow

Sometimes with my heart I can reach you

People only see what they want to

Sometimes when it rains there's a rainbow

Somewhere in the dark if you reach out

Behind every shadow is light

 

Follow me

I will follow you

As we wander through in detached swirl

Bursting out from the white noise phase

Higher than aeroplanes with lazer eyes

(AUTONOMY)

 

Sometimes when it rains there's a rainbow

Sometimes with my heart I can reach you

People only see what they want to

Sometimes when it rains there's a rainbow

Somewhere in the dark if you reach out

Behind every shadow is light

 

Sometimes when it rains there's a rainbow

Sometimes with guitars we can reach you

People only see what they want to

Sometimes when it rains there's a rainbow

Somewhere in the dark if you reach out

Behind every shadow is light

My Impossible Dream

Oh God an unrequited love again

As if there's not enough, there's not enough

The plane's crash landing back to earth again

And you're the pilot of my impossible dream

 

Oh what a drag

Beautiful slags

Merely a knack

You're too bloody good for those

You never know

You could 'ave 'ad me

Totally free

Love guaranteed

A total fuckin'misery

 

All my words

Heaven bound

They don't reach where your heart is

 

It's just like beauty and the beast here

It's brought to you by electricity

The host he wants your time, not mine

Sometimes it seems as if it's just a dream away

 

Light the fuse of your chemical blues

And it's one more night lonely

Baby's happy in your cradle

Rock this boy to sleep

 

Now and again

You need a friend

Dial it again

Maybe she could catch your throes

You never know

Light us a fag

'Av yer 'ad enough shags

She's on the rag

Grinning like a wanking jap

 

Oh my word

Will you fall from grace (if you just)

Hold my hand

Will you kiss my face (then I'll cry)

I'll hit home

Where I always go (when I'm tired)

I'll hit home

Where my heart is

Everything Picture

 

Fighting....

Biting...

All night...

Crying....

But, oh, what else can I do?

When there's nothing I can do

To get a hold of you...

 

When your back breaks and you fall

And you can't quite kick the ball

The spotlight's always on you..

 

When your gearbox slips a disc

And the wheels won't grip the grist

They come up fast behind you.

 

The only way you can survive

Is to go and take a dive

The referee will save your life

The frantic sponges that wash your face

All I want is some space.

 

But my lips are too sore

To even talk.

 

Only the lonely

want to know me

But no,

Nothing fills the hole.

'Cos nothing fills a hole.

Give the dog a bone

 

When you want to get it back,

but you just don't have the knack.

The only strategy is action.

 

When your shadow hits the fan,

Let the muscles in your hand

Paint an EVERYTHING PICTURE....

 

There is no way I can survive

I went and took a dive

The referee won't save my life

The frantic sponges that wash your face

All I wanted was space.

 

But my head is too sore

To begin to think.....
