Jacqueline was seventeen
Working on a desk
When Ivor peered above her spectacle
Forgot that he had wrecked a girl
Sometime these eyes
Forget the face they're peering from
When the face they peer upon
Well you know that face as I do
And how in the return of the gaze
She can return you the face
That you are staring from
It's always better on holiday
So much better on holiday
That's why we only work when we need the money

It's always better on holiday
So much better on holiday
That's why we only work when we need the money

Gregor was down again, said
Come on, kick me again, said
"I'm so drunk, I don't mind if you kill me"

Come on you gutless
Yeah I'm alive, oh I'm alive
Oh I'm alive, and how I know it!
Ah but for chips
And for freedom I could die

It's always better on holiday
So much better on holiday
That's why we only work when we need the money

It's always better on holiday
So much better on holiday
That's why we only work when we need the money

It's always better on holiday
So much better on holiday

I only watched her walk, but she saw it
I only heard her talk, but she saw it
I only touched her lips but she saw it
I only kissed her lips, but she saw it
Gonna have to tell her tonight (x4)
She only flicked her eyes, but I saw it
She only swung her hair, but I saw it
She only shook her hips, but I saw it
She only licked her lips, but I saw it
Gonna have to tell her tonight (x4)

Hey, I'll have to tell her, you tell her tonight, yeah
I'll have to tell her, tell her tonight, yeah
I'll have to tell her, to tell her tonight, yeah
I'll have to tell her, to tell her tonight

I only held her hand, but she saw it
I only watched her walk, but she saw it
I only touched her neck but she saw it
I only kissed her lips, but she saw it
Gonna have to tell her tonight (x4)

Hey, I'll have to tell her, you tell her tonight, yeah
Hey, I'll have to tell her, you tell her tonight, yeah

So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken, shattered, I lie
I'm just a crosshair
I'm just a shot, then we can die

I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say... take me out!

I say you don't show
Don't move, tide is low
I say... take me out!

I say you don't know
You say you don't know
I say... take me out!

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)

. . .


You take your white finger
Slide the nail under the top and bottom buttons of my blazer
Relax the fraying wool, slacken ties
And I'm not to look at you in the shoe, but the eyes, find the eyes

Find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
You must follow, leave this academic factory
You will find me in the matinee
The dark of the matinee
It's better in the matinee
The dark of the matinee is mine
Yes it's mine

I time every journey to bump into you, accidentally
I charm you and tell you of the boys I hate
All the girls I hate
All the words I hate
All the clothes I hate
How I'll never be anything I hate
You smile, mention something that you like
How you'd have a happy life if you did the things you like

Find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
You must follow, leave this academic factory
You will find me in the matinee
The dark of the matinee
It's better in the matinee
The dark of the matinee is mine
Yes it's mine

So I'm on BBC2 now, telling Terry Wogan how I made it
What I made is unclear now, but his deference is and his laughter is
My words and smile are so easy now
Yes, It's easy now
Yes, It's easy now

Find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
You must follow, leave this academic factory
You will find me in the matinee
The dark of the matinee
It's better in the matinee
The dark of the matinee is mine
Yes it's mine

Find me and follow me through corridors, refectories and files
You must follow, leave this academic factory
You will find me in the matinee
The dark of the matinee
It's better in the matinee
The dark of the matinee is mine
Yes it's mine

You see her, you can't touch her
You hear her, you can't hold her
You want her, you can't have her
You want to, but she won't let you
You see her, you can't touch her
You hear her, you can't hold her
You want her, you can't have her
You want to, but she won't let you

She's not so special so look what you've done, boy
She's not so special so look what you've done, boy
She's not so special so look what you've done

Now you wish she'd never come back here again
Oh, never come back here again

You see her, you can't touch her
You hear her, you can't hold her
You want her, you can't have her
You want to, but she won't let you

You see her, you can't touch her
You hear her, you can't hold her
You want her, you can't have her
You want to, but she won't let you

She's not so special so look what you've done, boy
She's not so special so look what you've done, boy
She's not so special so look what you've done

Now I'm nailed above you
Gushing from my side
It's with your sins that you have killed me
Thinking of your sins I die
Thinking how you'd let them touch you
How you'd never realise
That I'm ripped and hang forsaken
Knowing never will I rise
Again

You still see her
Oh, you hear her
You want her
Oh, you want to
You see her
You hear her
You want her
You still want to

. . .



Goodbye girl, because I'm lonely
Goodbye girl, it isn't over
Goodbye girl, because it's only love
Goodbye girl, you know you want me
Goodbye girl, yes I'm a loser
Goodbye girl, you know it's only love

I'm cheating on you, yeah
I'm cheating on you, yeah
I'm cheating on you, yeah
You're cheating on me

Goodbye girl, you are are the only one
Goodbye girl, I know you want me
Goodbye girl, you are the only love

Goodbye girl, now if you're lonely
Goodbye girl, why don't you join me
Goodbye girl, you know it's only love

I'm cheating on you, yeah
I'm cheating on you, yeah
I'm cheating on you, yeah
I'm cheating on me

Oh, watch out! Watch out!
I'm cheating on you!

Goodbye girl, goodbye girl

Eyes - Boring a way through me
Paralyse - Controlling completely
Now - There is a fire in me
A fire that burns
This fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn this city, burn this city
This fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn this city, burn this city
This fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn this city, burn this city
If this fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn it, burn it, I'll burn it down!

Eyes - Burning a way through me
Overwhelm - Destroying so sweetly
Now - There is a fire in me
A fire that burns

This fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn this city, burn this city
This fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn this city, burn this city
This fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn this city, burn this city
If this fire is out of control
Then I, I'm out of control, and I burn
Oh how I burn for you
Burn, oh how I burn for you
Burn, how I burn, how I burn, oh how I...

This fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn this city, burn this city
This fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn this city, burn this city
This fire is out of control
I'm gonna burn this city, burn this city
If this fire is out of control

You are the latest contender
You are the one to remember
You are the villain who sends her
Light or dark, fantastic passion
I know that you will surrender
I know that you will surrender
I want this fantastic passion
We'll have fantastic passion

You can feel my lips undress your eyes
Undress your eyes, undress your eyes
Words of love and words of leisure
Words of poisoned darts of pleasure
Died... and so you died

You are the latest adventure
You're an emotion avenger
You are the devil that sells her
Light or dark, fantastic passion

I know that you will surrender
I know that you will surrender
I want this fantastic passion
We'll have fantastic passion

You can feel my lips undress your eyes
Undress your eyes, undress your eyes
Skin can feel my lips they tingle - tense anticipation
This one is an easy one, feel the word and melt upon it
Words of love and words of leisure
Words of poisoned darts of pleasure
Died and so you died

[German]
Ich heisse Superfantastisch!
Ich trinke Schampus und Lachsfisch!

This is where I'll be
So heavenly
So come and dance with me Michael
So sexy, I'm sexy…
So come and dance with me Michael
I'm all that you see, you wanna see
So come and dance with me Michael

So close now, so close now
So come and dance with me
So come and dance with me
So come and dance with me

Michael you're the boy with all the leather hips
Sticky hair, sticky hips, stubble on my sticky lips
Michael you're the only one I'd ever want
Only one I'd ever want, only one I'd ever want
Beautiful boys on a beautiful dance-floor
Michael you're dancing like a beautiful dance-whore
Michael waiting on a silver platter now…
And nothing matters now.

This is what I am, I am a man,
So come and dance with me Michael
So strong now, it's strong now,
So come and dance with me Michael
I'm all that you see, you wanna see
So come and dance with me Michael

So close now.
It's a close now.
So come and dance with me
So come and dance with me
So come and dance with me

Michael you're the boy with all the leather hips
Sticky hair, sticky hips, stubble on my sticky lips
Michael you're the only one I'd ever want,
Only one I'd ever want, only one I'd ever want
Beautiful boys on a beautiful dance-floor
Michael you're dancing like a beautiful dance-whore.
Michael waiting on a silver platter now
And nothing matters now

Michael you're the only one I'd ever want,
Only one I'd ever want, only one I'd ever want [2x]
Beautiful boys on a beautiful dance-floor
Michael you're dancing like a beautiful dance-whore.
Michael waiting on a silver platter now

Nothing matters now [3x]

Although my lover lives in a place that I can't live
I find I like a life this lonely
It rips and pierces me
I love the rip of nerves
The rip that wakes me
I'm dissatisfied, I love dissatisfied
I love to feel there's always more that I need
London never gives what I want it to give

So Come On Home

So you talk down to me, the few times you talk to me
I'm not scared of words, but I fear voices
I replace you easily, replace pathetically
I flirt with any flighty thing that falls my way
But how I needed you
When I needed you.
Lets not forget we are so strong, so bloody strong

So Come On Home

. . .


As I glanced once upon the foam
40 feet beneath my feet
The coldest calm
Flows through the molten veins
Cooling all the blood to slush
Congeals around again
Oh la la la...
Oh and 40 feet remain
Salt scales upon my drying arms
Burn my back beneath the sun
I am cold beneath the burning haze
Looking down, looking down
Down down again
Oh la la la...
Oh and 40 feet remain

La la la la...
Oh and 40 feet remain
