Oh you can have it all and wrap it in the world
You can have Everything
You can have love and lots of other things
To make you think
But when it all comes down to you girl
Yeah no matter what you do
Take a look at yourself and realise
Ive been good to you
Ive been good to you

Oh no! I didn't mean to say what I did say
All about lovers and how they should lay
That was never for me to say and say
Dont you see now how I pay

I see the sun rising
And all you see is it fall fall fall

So come on up
Wasn't it you who said life was like a plastic cup
To be used and then disposed of
Yeah but thats no way to live a life like yours
Don't you see now how i pay

I see the sun rising
And all you see is it fall fall fall

For all the times i never never turned away
And now she is there on someone else's arm

For all the times i never never turned away
And now she is there on someone else's arm

For all the times i never never turned away
And now she is there on someone else's arm

For all the times i never never turned away
And now she is there on someone else's arm

. . .


She don't know who she is,
Oh, I can take her anywhere
Do whataver comes naturally
to you...

You know she just don't care,
You know she just don't care
'Cause I'm always where I need to be
And I always thought I would end up
with you, eventually

Do dodo do do do do


Now I see her again
I ask to be a hummingbird
Whishper words in her ear
Oh,You know I just don't care,
You know she just don't care,

'Cause I'm always where I need to be
And I always thought I would end up
with you, eventually
Do dodo do do do do

ohhhh I'm a man on the scene
I'm a man and I can be so obscene
'Cause I always think I know how to be
But I always thought I would end up with you eventually

Do dodo do do do do...

ohhhh I'm a man on the scene
I'm a man and I can be so obscene
'Cause I always think I know how to be
But I always thought I would end up with you eventually

Mr. Maker he's got it made
A beautiful wife and a baby on the way
And his bills are already paid
No need to skimp, no need to save
But all around him, the world grows hard
He thinks to himself, he must have played a lucky card
If he was alone he'd give it all away
To people and things, that he wanted to save

But oh no, it's alright
Mr. Maker, he'll be fine
It's alright, it's OK
Because of the love he gave away
Oh yeah
Oh yeeeeeeeah

Doesn't stop to think it's because of he
Always doing right, he stays healthy
The girls in the alley won't get a hold of him
He's got no time for that kind of sin
And he, he's not a member of the Catholic Church
The pastor of his town got sent down for dirt
He sees the boys from Sunday school
It's hard to believe what he read in the morning news

But oh no, it's alright
Mr. Maker, he'll be fine
It's all right, it's OK
Because of the love he gave away
Oh yeah
Oh yeeeeeeeah

Heart beat, stay heavy
Love us all please, stay on your feet
For me
For me, stay on your feet for me
For me, stay on your feet for me

But oh no, it's alright
Mr. Maker, he'll be fine
It's alright, it's OK
Because of the love he gave away
Oh yeah
Oh yeeeeeeeah

You were so fed up of the same old broken man

So put a spanner in the works
"You're mine,"
It's easier to work,
But I don't mind,
You're better in defeat so,
Just don't try
To take away all the things
I'll do in my life.

I have to break down all
the corners of the world.
Don't heed this praise on me,
I know I don't deserve it.
But what's so this I see?
Yeah you're leaving right beside me,
And I miss you, and I need you.
I do.

But don't go, take my love,
I won't let you, I'm saying please don't go.
Don't go, take my love,
I won't let you, I'm saying please don't go.

Well leave your lover now,
it's your turn.
And see your mother now,
I hope she's okay.
You're better in defeat so,
let's not try
To take away all the things I'll do in our lives.

I have to break down all the corners of the world.
Don't heed this praise on me,
I know I don't deserve it.
But what's so this I see?
Yeah you're leaving right beside me,
And I miss you, and I need you.
I do.

But don't go, take my love,
I won't let you, I'm saying please don't go.
Don't go, take my love,
I won't let you, I'm saying please don't go.

All of my life,
trying to understand.
All of my life,
trying to hold a hand.

I have to break down all,
the corners of this world.
Don't heed this praise on me,
I know I don't deserve it.
But what's so this I see?
Yeah you're leaving right beside me,
And I miss you, and I love you.
That's true

See i've got this woman here
she loves me all the time
no need for excuses
no pressures in my mind

she said love it all love it all love it all (2x)

my heart was living down
and i've been pushed over the line
but on your hand it'd be broken
and i'll be all over this time

and she said love it all love it all love it all
she said love it all love it all love it all
she said love it all love it all love it all
she said love it all love it all love it all (2x)

love it all love it all love it all
she said love it all love it all love it all

. . .


Yes I like stormy weather
from my window-sill
You ain't, yeah, you ain't so clever
You got it all made up

But it feels like love, love, love
Oh yes, it feels like touch, touch, touch

I see surround pass the time
I try to get it of my mind
And I live in a world oh so small
That I can get around a (soup)

And it feels like love, love, love
Oh yes, it feels like touch, touch, touch

What did I say?
What did I say?
What did I say?
Oh, I didn't mean it

What did I do
Or take of you?
Oh, I didn't mean it
Oh, oh, I didn't mean it!

I'm not saying it's all made up
It's people there, to come your head
But I seek all another song
Won't kill that, so beautiful

So it feels like love, love, love
Oh yes, it feels like touch, touch, touch

What did I say?
What did I say?
What did I say?
Oh, I didn't mean it

What did I do
Or take of you?
What did I do?
Oh, I didn't mean it
Oh, oh, I didn't mean it!

And it feels like love, love, love,
Yes, it feels like touch, touch, touch... [x4]

Say whatever you have to say
I'll stand by you
Do whatever you have to do
To get it out and not become
A reactionary to hurt the ones you love
I know you never meant to but you did
But you did

Be whoever you have to be
I won't judge you
And sing whenever you have to sing
To get it out and not become
A recluse about your house, come out
I know you never meant to but you did
Oh but you did

Still I need your sway
Cos you always pay for it
And I and I need your soul
Cos you're always soulful
And I and I need your heart
Cos you're always in the right places

Take whatever you have to take
you know I love you
And come however you have to come
To get it out, and get it out
Take it
Take it out on me
Take it out on me
Ill give it you all
Ill give it you all
Ill give it you all
Yes I will
give it you aaallllll

Still I need your sway
Cos you always pay for it
And I and I need your soul
Cos you're always soulful
And I and I need your heart
Cos you're always in the right places

Safety pins holding up the things
That make you mine
About your hair, you needn't care,
You look beautiful all the time.

Shine, shine, shine on
Yes
Wont you shine, shine on

Your magazines, at people at the seams
But you still read
I must admit, I don't believe in it
But I see how you get sucked in

Shine, shine, shine on
Yes
Wont you shine, shine on
(Sha la la la)
Shine, shine, shine on
Yes
Wont you shine, shine on

Because your not done

Why do you buy the hand that feeds you
Why do you
Why do you buy the hand that feeds...you!

Shine, shine, shine on
Yes
Wont you shine, shine on
(Sha la la la)
Shine, shine, shine on
Yes
Wont you shine, shine on

Safety pins holding up the things
That make you mine
About your hair, you needn't care
You look beautiful all the time

. . .


I'm gonna take you down to the market, lover
Cuz that's where the trouble starts
You gotta get it into your heart
There are people out there to make you feel bad
But don't you listen, baby don't you listen Because I know you feel that way

But I'm getting so tired of people always crossing my wires
Life's just far too short for miscommunication

I'm gonna take her down to the market today
Cuz that’s where the trouble starts
You don't want nobody else
There are people out there to make you feel good
But don't you listen, baby, don't you listen Because you know they want it all

But I'm getting so tired of people always crossing my wires
Life's just far too short for miscommunication.

Oh I'm getting so tired of people always crossing my wires
Life's just far too short for miscommunication.

Communication, communication

. . .


Can I hold you one last time
To fight the feeling that is growing in my mind
I know I did us both all so wrong
I know I'm not always all that strong

A-b-c-d-e-f and -g
Oh that reminds me of when we were free
Before life began to tear us apart
Remember those classes when we thought we were so smart

Ooooooooh
Ooooooooh

We were lovers in every way
Left school together, went back to my place
Now I can hardly remember her face
Before I met her I was ..sad

Ooooooooh
Ooooooooh

And can I hold you one last time
To fight this feeling that is growing in my mind

. . .


Oh honey please, don't shed no tears

As long as im here.....



Its far too early in the morning to be trying to call you

And far too early in the daytime to be thinking about that



But I, (but I), but I, (but I), but I am



What did i do in a past life, oh to deserve this

Yeah the way I make myself

He's far too innocent to be a part of such a cruel world

And it is, and it is and it is



And so I'll go, yes I'll go, so I'll take that train and ride.

Hoping I could write her a rhyme, that might stop the tick of time

Get off this situation and feel fine,

Get off this situation and feel fine.



What did i do to deserve her love,

I have to ask myself.

When i am such a bad man but only to her (only to her, only, only to her)



Oh and so I'll go, yes I'll go, so I'll take that train and ride.

Oh and so I'll go, yes I'll go, so I'll take that train and ride.

Wishing, hoping I can write her a rhyme, that might stop the tick of time

Get off this situation and feel fine,

Get off this situation and feel fine


. . .


Dear sir, did I see you fleeting?
I can't feel heart but not for it beating
You tried to put a frown on me, fell me down
You're spreading bad things about me, all over town
But I'll show no frown

Because all over town, yes all over town
There are people who would, undermine you if they could
Don't let them in

What do you see when you see me, sir?
The very same thing that makes you bitter
So you'll say all these outrageous things, that's what you do
Yes, but you're no poet man
You just want everyone looking at you
So I'll show no frown

Because all over town, yes all over this town
There are people who would undermine you if they could
Don't let them in

Oh, all over town, yes all over this town
There are people who would undermine me if they could
Won't let them in

. . .


Watching the ships roll in,
Hoping that i will still be his friend in the morning.
Watching those ships roll by,
Wishing that I could move this earth,
If I could, for you I would do.

I've got nothing to say,
I've got nothing to lay at your feet,
I just keep hoping, hoping, you will be the man,
That I couldn't be.

Still watching the ocean's move,
If only I could show you my soul and places I’ve been.
Watching the ocean curl,
And little girls playing in the sand, as I am bored, longing to listen to you talk.

I've got nothing to say,
I've got nothing to lay at your feet.
I just keep hoping, hoping, you will be the man,
That I couldn't be.

I've got nothing to say,
I've got nothing to lay at your feet.
I just keep hoping, hoping, you will be the man,
That I couldn't be.

Ooh, eaten by your lover
Don't you eat no friend of mine
Ooh, eaten by your lover
Don't you eat no friend of mine
Don't you eat no friend of mine

All my little ladies eating up the gravy
All my little ladies eating up the gravy
All you little ladies eating up the gravy, yeah

Ooh, eaten by your lover
Don't you eat no friend of mine
Ooh, eaten by your lover
Don't you eat no friend of mine, yeah
Don't you eat no friend of mine

I must say that I worry for
You can't live like this no more
I must say that I worry for you

I must say that I worry for
Our love in this cold war
I must say that I worry for you

Took me by surprise
That I just didn't see
She had her dark past, her broken heart
And she wants it loved

But in the darkest of times
She won't be honest with lies
Put her words in a fancy dress
And we'll keep up this disguise

But no longer
It's not getting stronger
No longer for me

I must say that I worry for
You can't live like this no more
I must say that I worry for you

But you, But you don't wanna think no more
Passed out on your bedroom floor
I must say that I worry for you

Took me by surprise
A man once made a key
To open her dark heart
He broke apart what was once in love

But it's clear now to see
That man, he was me
And so I go far, far
Without her, don't you follow me

And no longer
We're not getting stronger
No longer for me

I must say that I worry for
You can't live like this no more
I must say that I worry for you

I must say that I worry for
Our love in this cold war
I must say that I worry for you
I worry for you
I worry for you
I worry for you
I worry for you

I'm just saying that I worry for
I'm just saying that I worry for
I'm just saying that I worry for
And I'm just saying that I worry for
I'm just saying that I worry for...

. . .

When you feel like you've fallen out of use,
Come by my side,
The starved pain my girl you have induced,
Come dine by my side,

Everything she said to me was true,
So now I know why,
You look blue, it's eating through you,
So come by my side,

Don't want to fall out of love with you,
Don't let me fall out of love with you,

I'll dig down and I'll search for a heart of gold,
In your diamond mind,
Don't you know, my girl, I'd farm the world,
To come dine by your side,

Everything you say to me gets through,
So now I know why I'm not through with life,
Because of you,
So come by my side,

Don't want to fall out of love with you,
Don't let me fall out of love with you,

Girl you know that I still need you,
Pick it up and we'll find a way,
Don't you know that I still need you,
Look it up and we'll find a way,

Nobody sees my disease

Nobody sees my pain

Sat in a lonely room

Nobody sees my pain
People come they don't care
She still lives in Brooklyn
She still lives in Brooklyn

Nobody sees my disease

Nobody sees my disease

Stuck on a lonely chair
People they come they don't care

Nobody sees my disease
I'm happier when i'm on my knees love
She still lives in Brooklyn

She still lives in Brooklyn
She still lives in Brooklyn
So you'll never see my disease
