LYRICS

to all the Cranberries' albums




Everybody else doing it, so why can't we ?



I still do

I'm not ready for this
Though I thought I would be
I can't see the future
Though I thought I could see

(chorus)
I don't want to leave you
Even though I have to
I don't want to love you
I still do 

Need some time to find myself
I wanna live within
Can I go my own way
Can I pray my own way
I don't want to leave you
I need you
Am I ready for this
Did I think I would be
Can I see the future
No, I can't see

Dreams


Oh my life
Is changing everyday
In every possible way
And Oh my dreams
It's never quiet as it seems
Never quiet as it seems
I know I've felt like this before
But now I'm feeling it even more
Because it came from you
And then I open up and see
The person falling here is me
A different way to be
La
I want more (impossible to ignore)
I want more (impossible to ignore)
And they'll come true (impossible not to do)
And they'll come true (impossible not to do)
And now I tell you openly
You have my heart so don't hurt me
You're what I couldn't find
A totally amazing mind
So understanding and so kind
You're everything to me 


Sunday

Oh do you know
( Where to go, where to go )
Something on your mind
(Wanna leave me behind, wanna leave me behind)
You're spinning me around
My feet are off the ground
I dunno know where I stand
Do you have to hold my hand
(You mystify me, you mystify me, you mystify me)
When you walked into the room
It happened oh so soon
I didn't want to know
Does he really have to go
(You mystify me, you mystify me, you mystify me)
And he didn't find the words
To say I love you
And he couldn't find the time
To say I need you
(It wouldn't come out right, it wouldn't come out right)
Just came out all wrong
You're spinning me around
My feet are off the ground
I dunno know where I stand
Do you have to hold my hand
(You mystify me, you mystify me, you mystify me)
Oh do you know 
(Where to go, where to go)
Something on your mind
(Wanna leave me behind, wanna leave me behind)


Pretty

You're so pretty, The way you are
You're so pretty , The way you are
and you have no reason, to be so insolent to me
You're so pretty , The way you are
La, you got to say it if you want to
But you won't change me
La, you got to say it if you want to
But you won't change me
(repeat)


Waltzing Back

Who gave them the right, Waltzing back into 
(Your life, Your life), Now I feel fear 
I wish that they'd never come (Here, here, here) 
Chorus X2
What they gonna do, what they gonna say
Taking you away from, (My life, my life)
La, Who gave them the right
Turning it back into, (Light, light, light)
Then I felt fear
I wish that they'd never come (Here, here, here) 
What they gonna do, What they gonna say
Taking you away from, (My life, my life, my life)
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna say
I don't wanna say, 'Cos it's
(Your life, your life, your life)


Not Sorry

Keep on looking through the window again
But I'm not sorry if I do insult you
I'm sad not sorry 'bout the way that things went
And you'll be happy and I'll be forsaken thee
I swore I'd never feel like this again
But you're so selfish,you don't see what you're doing to me
I keep on looking through the window again
No, I'm not sorry if I insult you ( X2 )

(chorus)

You told me lies
(And I cried, and i cried, and i cried)
'Cos you lied, lied and
(I cried, yes i cried, yes i cried)
(I cry, I cry, I cry) again
I realize as
(he sighed and, he sighed and)
'Cos you lied, lied and
(I cried, yes I cried, yes )
(I try, I try, I try ) again

Keep on looking through the window again
But I'm not sorry if I do insult you 
I'm sad not sorry 'bout the way that things went
And you'll be happy and I'll be forsaken thee
I swore I'd never feel like this again
But you're so selfish, you don't see you're doing to me
I keep on looking through the window again
No I'm not sorry if do detest you
No I'm not sorry if do detest you

(chorus)

keep on looking through the window again
keep on looking through the window again 


Linger

If you, if you could return
Don't let it burn,don't let it fade
I'm sure I'm not being rude
But it's just your attitude
It's tearing me apart
It's ruining everything
I swore, I swore I would be true
And honey so did you
So why were you holding her hand
Is that the way we stand
Were you lying all the time
Was it just a game to you

(chorus)

But I m in so deep
You know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to let it linger
Oh, I thought the world of you
I thought nothing could go wrong
But I was wrong, but I was wrong

If you, if you could get by
Trying not to lie
Things wouldn't be so confused
And I wouldn't feel so used
But you always really knew
I just wanna be with you



Wanted

Sitting in an armchair
With my head between my hands
I wouldn't have to feel like this
If you'd only understand
Too many misunderstandings
Causing such delay
And if it doesn't work like this
Well, I'll try another way
Oh, if this is the way you wanted it
Oh, if this is the way you wanted it
Oh, I didn't understand
Oh, I didn't understand
You know that all I wanted was
To be there by your side
And if you didn't want it
Well, you shouldn't have denied
You knew that you were someone special
Right form the start
But if you treat me badly
We'd be better off apart 


Still Can't

Still can't recognize the way I feel 
Nothing of what you said to me was real
And you still can't find the strength to apologize
You just go on laughing and telling everyone lies

(chorus)

'Cos
( You wanted it all, wanted it all, you wanted it all)
No, and 
(There's nothin' at all, there's nothin' at all, there's nothin' at all)

Maybe if you could see beyond your nose 
Nothing of what had happened surely shows
but your ego excelled and then your attitude
And you went on laughing and shoutin
It's all too shrewd 


I will always

And now it's all the same to me
So be whatever you want to be
And go wherever you need to go
And when it all seems like a mistake
Take whatever you need to take
And leave the rest for my own sake
I will always
Go beside you
You will always
Understand 
And now, it's all the same to me
So be whatever you want to be
And go wherever you need to go
And when there's nothing left behind
taken whatever you needed to
and leave it all into my mind
I will always
Go beside you
You will always
Understand


How

Look, you're standing alone
(Standing alone)
However I should have known
(I should have known)

(chorus 1)

Never before, never before
never again, never again
you will ignore, you will ignore
I will pretend, I will pretend

(chorus 2) 

In your world,
You're alone in your face
Your alone in your world
Your alone in your face

How you said you never would leave me alone
How you said you never would leave me alone
Now you're just walking away
(Walking away)
When you said you always would stay
Always would stay

(chorus1 and chorus2 repeat)


Put me down

Let me take you 
By the hand
Away from here
To another land
Oh this land in which we live
Where people love and are meant to forgive
And you always prove me wrong
'Cos you're always putting me down 
I can't take this anymore
I decided to leave
Walked throught the door
Oh, and why do you think I go
Because you know it can never be so
And you always prove me wrong
'Cos you're always putting me down 
La, la, la...





No Need To Argue


Ode to my family

Understand the things I say
Don't turn away from me
'Cause I've spent half my life out there
You wouldn't disagree
Do you see me? Do you see?
Do you like me? Do you like me standing there?
Do you notice? Do you know?
Do you see me? Do you see me?
Does anyone care?
Unhappiness where's when I was young
And we didn't give a damn
'Cause we were raised
To see life as fun and take it if we can
My mother, my mother she hold me
Did she hold me ,when I was out there
My father, my father, he liked me
Oh he liked me,does anyone care?
Understand what I've become
It wasn't my design
And people everywhere think
Something better than I am
But I miss you, I miss 
'Cause I liked it. I liked it
When I was out there
Do you know this ? D'you know 
You did not find me, you did not find
Does anyone care?
Unhappiness was when I was young,
And we didn't give a damn
'Cause we were raised
To see life as fun, and take it if we can
To see life as fun and take it if we can
My mother, my mother she hold me
Did she hold me ,when I was out there
My father, my father, he liked me
Oh he liked me,does anyone care?
does anyone care?


I can't be with you

Lying in my bed again
And i cry cos' you're not here
Crying in my head again
And I know that it's not clear
Put your hands, Put your hands
Inside my face and see that's it's just you
But it's bad and it's mad
And it's making me sad
Because I can't be with you
Baby I Can't Be With You
Thinking back on how things were
And how we loved so well
I wanted to be the mother
Of your child 
and now it's just farewell
Put your hands in my hands
And come with me,
We'll find another end
And my head , and my head
On anyone's shoulder
Cause I can't be with you
Baby I can't be with you
Cause you're not here, you're not here
Baby I can't be with you
Cause you're not here, you're not here
And baby I'm still in love with you


Twenty one

I don't think it's going, To happen anymore
You took my thoughts from me
Now i want nothing more
And did you think you, Could just take it all away
I dont think it s happening, This is what I say
Leave me alone, Cause i found it all
Twenty one
So I don't think it's going
To happen anymore
I don't think it's going
To happen anymore
Twenty One
Today
Twenty One


Zombie

Another head hangs lowly, Child is slowly taken
And the violence caused such silence
Who are we mistaken
But You see it's not me, It s not my family
In your head,in your Head they are fighting
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, In your head they are cryin'
In your head
Zombie
What's in your head, in your head
Zombie
Another mother's breakin'
Heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken
It's the same old theme since 1916
In your head,
In your head they're still fightin'
With their tanks
In your head they are dying
In your head, in your head
Zombie
What's in your head, in your head
Zombie


Empty

Something has left my life 
And I don't know where it went to
Somebody caused me stripe
And it's not what I was seeking
Didn't you see me, didn't you hear me
Didn't you see me standing there
Why did you turn out the lights
Did you know that I was sleeping
Say a prayer for me
Help to feel the strength I did
My identity has it been taken
Is my heart breaking on me
All my plans fell through my hands
They fell
Through my hands on me
All my dreams it suddenly seems
Empty


Everything I said

It makes me lonely
It makes me very lonely
When I see you there, waitin'on
It makes me tired, It makes me very tired
And inside of me, lingers on
But you have your heart
Don t believe it, and you will find it
Waitin'on
Everything I said, oh, well I meant it
And inside my head, holdin'on
'Cos if I died tonight
Would you hold my hand, no 
Would you understand
And if I lived in spite
Would you still be there, no
Would you disappear
Surely must be you
But I don t make you lonely 
I'll get over you 
But I don 't make you lonely


The icicle melts

When 
When will the icicle melt,
And when
When will the picture show end
I should not have read the papers today
'Cause a child,child he was taken away
There's a place for the baby that died
And there's a time for the mother who cried
And she will hold him in her arms sometimes
'Cause nine months is too long
How could you hurt a child
Now does this make you satisfied
I don't know what's
happening to people today
When a child, he was taken away
There's a place for the baby that died
There's a time for the mother that cried
And she will hold him in 
her arms sometimes
'Cause nine months is too long
There's a place for the baby that died
And there's a time for the mother that cried
And you will hold him in 
your arms sometimes
'Cause nine months is too long


Disappointment

Disappointment you shouldn't have done
You couldn't have done, You wouldn't have done
the things you did there, And we could 've been happy
What a piteous thing, a hideous thing
was tainted by the rest
But it won't get any harder
And I hope you'll find your way again
But it won't get any higher
But it all boils down to what you did there
In the night we fight, I feel you're right
It was exactly there, I decided and drew you out 
In the night we fight, I feel you're right
It was exactly there, I decided
But it won't get any harder
And I hope you'll find your way again
But it won't get any higher
But it all boils down to what you did there
Disapointment


Ridiculous thoughts

Twister does anyone see through you
You re a twister an animal, But you're happy now
I didn't go along with you, So happy now
But you re going to have to hold on, Hold on
Or we're going to have to move on, Move on
I feel alright, And I cried so hard
The ridiculous thoughts, I feel alright
Twister. I shouldn't have trusted you, Twister
It's not going to happen no
You re not going to make fun of me, Happen no
But you re going to have to hold on
You re going to have to hold on, Hold on 
Or we're going to have to move on, Move on
I feel alright, And I cried so hard 
The ridiculous thoughts 
I feel alright
I should have lied
And I cried so hard 
The ridiculous thoughts 
I should ha' lied
But you re gonna have to hold on
Hold on 
but you're gonna have to hold on to me 


Dreaming my dreams

All the things you said to me today
Changed my perspective in every way
These things count to mean
so much to me
Into my faith you
And your baby
It s out there
If you want me
I'll be there
It's out there
I'll be dreaming my dreams
With you
And there's no other places
That I'd lay down my face 
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
It's out there
If you want me,I'll be here
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you
And there's no other places that I'd 
lay down my face
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you


Yeats grave

Silenced by death in the grave
W B Yeats couldn't save
Why did you stand there
'Where you sickened in time
But I know by now
Why did you sit here?
In the GRAVE

W.B. Yeats "Second"

Why should I blame her
That she filled my days
With misery or that she would of late
Have taught to ignorant men violent ways
Or hurled the little street upon the great
Had they but courage
Equals to desire 

Sad that Maud Gonne Couldn't stay
But she had Mac Bride anyway
And you sit here with me
On the isle Inisfree

And you writing down everything
But i know by now
Why did you sit here 
In the grave...

Why should I blame her
Had they but courage equals to desire


Daffodil lament

Holding on that's what I do
Since I met you
And it won't be long, would you notice
If I left you
And it's fine for some
Cause you're not he one,
All night long, I laid on my pillow
Theses things are wrong
I can't sleep here
So lonely, so lonely
I have decided to leave you forever
I have decided to start things from here
Thunder and lightning won't change
What I'm feeling
And the daffodils look lovely today
Oh in your eyes I can see the disguise
Oh in your eyes I can see the dismay
Has anyone seen lightning
Has anyone looked lovely
And the daffodils looked lovely today
Looked lovely 


No need to argue

There 's no need to argue anymore
I gave all i could
But it left me so sore
And the thing that makes me mad
is the one thing that I had 
I knew, I knew I'd loose you
You 'll always be special to me 
And I remember all the
Things we once shared
Watching TV movies on
the living room armchair 
But they say it will work out fine
Was it all a waste of time
Cause I knew, I knew I'd loose you 
You 'll always be special to me 
Will I forget in time
You said I was on your mind
There 's no need to argue 
No need to argue anymore
There 's no need to argue anymore
Special 



To The Faithful Departed


Hollywood

I've got a picture in my head, in my head.
It's me and you, we are in bed, we are in bed.
You've always been there when I called,
You'll always be there most of all, all, all.

This is not Hollywood like,
I understood, Is not Hollywood like, like, like,

Run away, run away, is there anybody there?
Run away, run away, is there anybody there?

Get away, get away, get away.

I've got a picture in my room, in my room.
I will return there I presume, it should be soon.
The greatest irony of all, shoot the wall.
It's not so glamourous at all, all, all.

This is not Hollywood like,
I understood, Is not Hollywood like, like, like,

Run away, run away, is there anybody there?
Run away, run away, is there anybody there?

Get away, get away, get away.

When you're gone

Hold on to love, that is what I do,
Now that I've found you.
And from above, everything's stinking,
They're not around you.
And in the night, I could be helpless.
I could be lonely, sleeping without you.
And in the day, everything's complex.
There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you

But, I miss you when your gone,
That is what I do, ba-baby.
And its going to carry on,
That is what I knew, hey baby.

Hold on to my hands, I feel like sinking,
Sinking without you.
And to my mind, everythings stinking, Stinking without you.

And in the night I could be helpless.
I could be lonely, sleeping without you.
And in the day, everything's complex.
There's nothing simple, When I'm not around you.

And I miss you when your gone,
That is what I do, ba-baby.
And its going to carry on,
That is what I knew, hey baby.


Free to decide

It's not worth anything more than this at all.
I'll live as I choose, or I will not live at all.
So return to where you come from.
Return to where you dwell,
Because harrassment's not my forte,
But you do it very well.

I'm free to decide.
I'm free to decide,
And I'm not so suicidal after all.
I'm free to decide.
I'm free to decide,
And I'm not so suicidal after all,
At all, at all, at all.

You must have nothing more with your time to do.
There's a war in Russia and Sarajevo too.
So to hell with what you're thinking,
And to hell with your narrow mind.
Your so distracted from the real thing.
You should leave your life behind.

I'm free to decide.
I'm free to decide,
And I'm not so suicidal after all.
I'm free to decide.
I'm free to decide,
And I'm not so suicidal after all,
At all, at all, at all.


War child

Who will save the war child baby?
Who controls the key?
The web we weave is thick and sordid,
Fine by me.

At times of war, we're all the losers,
There's no victory.
We'll shoot to kill and kill your lover,
Fine by me.

War child, victom of political pride.
Plant the seed, teritorial greed.
Mind the war child.
We should mind the warchild.

I spent last winter in New York, and came upon a man.
He was sleeping on the streets, and homeless.
He said, 'I fought in Vietnam.'
Beneath his shirt he wore the mark.
He bore the mark with pride.
A two inch deep insicion carved into his side.

War child, victom of political pride.
Plant the seed, teritorial greed.
Mind the war child.
We should mind the warchild.

Who's the loser now, eh?
Who's the loser now, eh?
We're all the losers now,
We're all the losers now.
Warchild, warchild.


Forever yellow skies

Yellow skies, I can see you in the yellow skies.
See you again, I'll see you again.
In my dreams. (4x)

Morning light,
I remember morning light.
Outside my door, I'll see you no more.
In my dreams. (4x)

Forever, forever I'll be, forever holding you,
Forever, forever I'll be, forever holding you
Responsible, responsible
Responsible, responsible

Black and white, it's become so black and white.
So insecure, you're so insecure.
Thats what you are. (4x)

Forever, forever I'll be, forever holding you,
Forever, forever I'll be, forever holding you
Responsible, responsible
Responsible, responsible


The rebels

Seems like yesterday we were sixteen.
We were the rebels of the rebel scene.
We wore Doc Martens in the sun,
Drinking vintage cider, having fun.
We were drinking vintage cider, having fun.

It wasn't often that we'd fight at all,
It wasn't often.
It wasn't often that we'd fight at all,
It wasn't often...

We wore Doc Martens in the snow.
(we will never know)
Paint our toenails black and let our hair grow.
(we will never know)
What I am now is what I was then.
(we will never know)
I am not more acceptable than them,
I am not more acceptable than them.

It wasn't often that we'd fight at all,
It wasn't often.
It wasn't often that we'd fight at all,
It wasn't often.(x8)

Seems like yesterday we were sixteen.
We were the rebels of the rebel scene.


I just shot John Lennon

It was the fearful night of December 8,
He was returning home from his studio, late.
He had perseptively known that it wouldn't be nice,
Because in 1980 he paid the price.

John Lennon Died. (x6)
With a Smith and Wesson, 38,
John Lennon's life was no longer a debate.
He should have stayed at home.
He should have never cared.
And the man who took his life declared,

He said... "I just shot John Lennon"
He said, "I just shot John Lennon"
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight
What a sad and sorry and sickening night...


Electric blue

Electric Blue Eyes,
Where did you come from?
Electric Blue Eyes,
Who sent you?
Electric Blue Eyes,
Always be near me.
Electric Blue Eyes,
I need you.

Domine, Domine Deus,
Domine, Adiuva Me.
Domine, Domine Deus,
Domine, Adiu, Adiuma Me.

If you should go you should know... I love you.
If you should go you should know... I'm here.
Always be near me, guardian angel.
Always be near me, there's no fear.


I'm still remembering

I'm still remembering,
The day I gave my life away.
I'm still remembering,
The time you said you'd be mine.
Yesterday was cold and bare,
Because you were not there.
Yesterday was cold,
My story has been told.

I need your affection all the way.
The world has changed,
Or I've changed in a way.
I try to remain.
I'm trying not to go insane.
I need your affection all the way.

(Get away)

I'm still remembering my life,
Before I became your wife.
I'm still remembering the pain,
And the mind games.
Reverse psychology never tainted me.
I didn't sell my soul,
I didn't sell my soul.

I need your affection all the way.
The world has changed,
Or I've changed in a way.
I try to remain.
I'm trying not to go insane.
I need your affection all the way.

They say the cream will always,
Rise to the top.
They say that good people,
Are always first to drop.
What of Kurt Cobain?
Will his presence still remain?
Remember J. F. K.,
Ever saintly in a way.
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
I say, where are you now?

I need your affection all the way.


Will you remember?

Will you remember the dress I wore?
Will you remember my face?
Will you remember the lipstick I wore?
This world is a wonderful place.

Will you remember the black limousine?
Will you remember champagne?
Will you remember the things that we've seen?
I will return here again.

Will you remember the flowers in my hand?
Will you remember my hair?
Will you remember the future we planned?
The world is not waiting out there.

I won't remember the dress I wore.
I won't remember champagne.
I won't remember the things that we swore.
I will just love you in vain.

Will you remember?
Will you recall?
Will you remember?


Joe

There was a time, I was so lonely. (away)
Remember the time, It was a Friday. (away)
You made me feel fine, We did it my way. (away) 
I sat on your knees, every Friday. (away)

(We walked in fields of golden hay)
I still recall you.
(We walked in fields of golden hay)
I see you in the summer.

Joe, Joe

I sat on your chair by the fire. (away)
Transfixed in a stare taking me higher. (away)
Precious years to remember. (away)
Childhood fears I surrender. (away)

(We walked in fields of golden hay)
I still recall you.
(We walked in fields of golden hay)
I see you in the summer.

Joe, Joe

Cordell

Though once you ruled my mind
I thought you'd always be there
And I always hold on to your face

But everything changes in time
And the answers are not always fair
And I hope you've gone to a better place

Cordell
Time will tell
They say that you passed away
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Time will tell
Time will tell
They say that you passed away
And I know that you've gone to a better place

Cordell (7x)

Your lover and baby will cry
But your presence will always remain
Is this how it was meant to be?
You meant something more to me
Than what many people would see
and your help (?) with the industry

Cordell
Time will tell
They say that you passed away
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Time will tell
Time will tell
We all will depart and again
And we all will return to a better place

Bosnia

I would like to state my vision.
Life was so unfair.
We live in our secure surroundings,
And people die out there.

Bosnia was so unkind.
Sarajevo changed my mind.

And we all call out in despair.
All the love we need isn't there.
And we all sing songs in our room
Sarajevo erects another tomb

Sarajevo, Sarajevo, Sarajevo, Sarajevo,
Bosnia, was so unkind.
Sarajevo, Sarajevo, Sarajevo,
Bosnia was so unkind.

I'm sure things would change if we really wanted them to,
No fear for children anymore.
There are babies in their beds,
Terror in their heads. For the love of life!

When do the saints go marching in?
When do the saints go marching in?
When do the saints go marching in?
When do the saints go marching in?

Rummmpatitum, Rummmpatitum...
Traboo, Traboo, Traboo...

The picture I view

I haven't changed
But my life has
People are strange when it's like as
I did something wrong to them
And I don't even know your name...
(No, I don't even know your name)

I swear that he's good for me,
And I swear he looks after me,
And I swear that he looks out for me...
And I swear that he's good, good, good.

La, la, la, The picture I view
La, la, la, The picture I view

All my plans and promises
Went tumbling down the hill
All my friends and promises
Went tumbling down the hill
They went tumbling down the hill

I haven't changed, but my life has
People are strange when it's like as
I did something wrong to them
And I don't even know your name.
(No, I don't even know your name) 
(I don't even know your name)




Bury the Hatchet


Animal Instinct

Suddenly something has happened to me
As I was having my cup of tea
Suddenly I was feeling depressed
I was utterly and totally stressed
Do you know you made me cry
Do you know you made me die

And the thing that gets to me
Is you'll never really see
And the thing that freaks me out
Is I'll always be in doubt
It is a lovely thing that we have
It is a lovely thing that we
It is a lovely thing, the animal
The animal instinct

So take my hands and come with me
We will change reality
So take my hands and we will pray
They won't take you away
They will never make me cry, no
They will never make me die

And the thing that gets to me
Is you'll never really see
And the thing that freaks me out
Is I'll always be in doubt

The animal, the animal, the animal instinct in me
It's the animal, the animal, the animal instinct in me
It's the animal, it's the animal,
it's the animal instinct in me X 2 


Loud and Clear

I hope that you will miss me
Put me down on history
I feel such a reject now
Get yourself a life
I hope that you're sorry
For not accepting me
For not adoring me
That's why I'm not your wife

People are stranger
People in danger
People are stranger
People deranged or,

I remember there was
Nothing I could ever do
Never could impress you
Even if I tried
Tell somebody who cares
Fill the room with empty stares
Go to bed and say my prayers
Keep them satisfied

People are stranger
People in danger
People are stranger
People deranged

Loud and clear I make my point dear

I hope that you never
Get the things you wanted to
Now I cast a spell on you
Complicate your life
Hope you get a puncture
Everywhere you ever drive
Hope the sun beats down
on you an
Skin yourself alive

Ra la la la la la la la - Ra la la la la la la la   X 4


Promises

You better believe I'm coming
You better believe what I say
You better hold on to your promises
Because you bet, you'll get what you deserve
She's going to leave him over
She's gonna take her love away
So much for your eternal vows, well
It does not matter anyway

Why can't you stay here awhile
Stay here awhile
Stay with me

(Chorus)
Oh, all the promises we made
All the meaningless and empty words
I prayed, prayed, prayed
Oh, all the promises we broke
All the meaningless and empty words
I spoke, spoke, spoke

Do-do-do Do-do-do Do-do-do Do-do-do

What of all the things you taught me
What of all the things that you'd say
What of all your prophetic preaching
You're just throwing it all away
Maybe we should burn the house down
Have ourselves another fight
Leave the cobwebs in the closet
Cos tearing them out is just not right

Why can't you stay here awhile
Stay here awhile
Stay with me . Oh . Oh .

(Repeat chorus)

Oh eh. Oh eh. Oh eh. Oh eh. Oh eh   X 3

Do-do-do Do-do-do Do-do-do Do-do-do


You and Me

I'm not going out tonight ‘cos I don't want to go
I am staying at home tonight ‘cos I don't want to know
You revealed a world to me and I would never be
Dwelling in such happiness, your gift of purity

Eh-ee-oh, Eh-ee-oh, Eh-ee-oh, Eh-ee-oh   X 2

Aahh, you and me It will always be
You and me Forever be,
Eternally It will always be You and Me

Taylor, Taylor, Taylor, Taylor

I don't pay attention to the ones who never cared
Find your own direction ‘cos there's sweetness in the air
You will be the world to me and I will always be
Dwelling in this happiness, your gift of purity

Eh-ee-oh, Eh-ee-oh, Eh-ee-oh, Eh-ee-oh   X 2

Aahh, you and me will always be
You and me Forever be, 
Eternally Will always be
You and me

Always be You and Me
Forever be, Eternally
It will always be You and me
Forever be, Eternally

Taylor, Taylor   X 4


Just My Imagination

There was a game we used to play
We would hit the town on Friday night
And stay in bed until Sunday
We used to be so free
We were living for the love we had and
Living not for reality

It was just my imagination   X 3

There was a time I used to pray
I have always kept my faith in love
It's the greatest thing from the man above
The game I used to play
I've always put my cards upon the table
Let it never be said that I'd be unstable

It was just my imagination   X 3

There is a game I like to play
I like to hit the town on Friday night
And stay in bed until Sunday
We'll always be this free
We will be living for the love we have
Living not for reality

It's not my imagination    X 3

Not my    X 18


Shattered

I'm trying to control myself
So please don't stand in my way
I've waited for the longest time
This is what I wanted in my way

Move over, move over
There's a climax coming my way
Move over, move over
There's a climax coming in my way

(Chorus)
I don't like you, don't compromise
Shattered by your weakness
Shattered by your smile
And I'm not very fond of you, and your lies
Shattered by your weaknesses
Shattered by your smile

All the kids are going back to school
The summer's over and it's the golden rule
And now I'm coming out to play
So please don't stand in my way
And all the things that seemed once to be
So important to me
Seem so trivial now that I can see

Move over, move over
There's a climax coming my way    X 2

(Chorus)

Please don't stand in my way


Desperate Andy

He always holds on to his girlfriend
That's where he likes to be
He like to wear the ball and the chain on his neck
A false sense of security

And when he goes with a smile
And when he goes with a smile
And when he goes with a smile
And when he goes with a smile

Desperate Andy a-a-a-a
Re la la la la la la
Desperate Andy a-a-a-a
Re la la la la la la

The world is your oyster now
You can do as you want to do
The world is your oyster now
So go out and get high and get whatever you want to

Ma-na-na, Ma-na-na, Ma-na-na, Ma-na-na
Ma-na-na, Ma-na-na, Ma-na-na, Ma-na-na

He used to be a closet biker they say
A 1957 BSA
He used to collect writing paper
They wonder wonder wonder wonder wonder of

Desperate Andy a-a-a-a
Ra la la la la
Isn't it dandy a-a-a-a
Ra la la la la
Desperate Andy a-a-a-a
Ra la la la la la la

The world is your oyster now
You can do as you want to do
The world is your oyster now
So go out and get high and get whatever you want to

The world is your oyster now
You can do as you want to do
The world is your oyster now
So go out and get laid and get whatever you want to
The world is your oyster
The world is yours

It's yours, it's yours, it's yours, it's yours

It's yours, it's yours, it's yours, it's yours

Gimme the chastity, gimme the sanctity,
Gimme the wit, o-oh X 5


Saving Grace

It could happen here today
It could happen here today
And I can't wait to see your face
No I can't wait to see your face

Can you hold on while I take hold of myself
Can you hold on while I take hold of myself

You're the little thing, my saving grace
You're just a little thing, my saving grace

It could happen here today
It could happen here today
You are my saving grace
You are my saving grace

Will you be strong while I take hold of myself
Will you be strong while I take hold of myself

It could happen here today
It could happen here today
You are my saving grace
You are my saving grace


Copycat

They had an accident and they never noticed anyway
A lack of originality couldn't focus on the day
So much for the radio everybody sounds the same
Everybody wears the same clothes now and everybody plays the game
Copycat, copycat, copycat
Copy copy copy copy yourself
Copycat, copycat, copycat

Copy copy copy everyone else   X 2

I've got a great idea I will change things on my own
I see my vision very clear,
wouldn't want to be another clone
So much for the radio, the radio is sad
Sad, sad, sad

(Chorus)
They had an accident and they never noticed anyway
A lack of originality couldn't focus on the day
So much for the radio everybody sounds the same
Everybody wears the same clothes now and everybody plays the game

(Repeat Chorus)

Copy everyone else   X 4


What's On My Mind

Baby I would do anything for you
Nobody's ever treated me quite like you do
I've wasted too much time
I've wasted too much time
And I'm gonna tell you what's on my mind

Yea      Yea

I was wrong all along
There could be somebody like thee
Here we are finally
I've found my
I've found my

Maybe it'll be quite sometime
I love you forever and we will be waiting in time
I'm wasting no more time
I'm wasting no more time
I'm always gonna tell you what's on my mind
Yea Yea

I was wrong all along
There could be somebody like thee
Here we are finally
I've found my
I've found my (repeat)
(Repeat chorus)


Delilah

Shout shout shout Delilah
Shout shout shout at the top of your lungs
Shout shout shout Delilah
Shout shout shout until the kingdom comes

Stay away from me
Just stay away from my house
Stay away from me
Stay away or I'll sort you out

Treading on my dreams
Stop treading on my dreams    X 2

Out out out Delilah
Out out out stay out of my place

Out out out or I'll rearrange your face

He'll never really be
He'll never be your lover
He'll never really be
He'll never really be your lover

So stay away from me
Just stay away from my house
Stay away from me
Just stay away or I'll sort you out

Shout shout shout Delilah
Shout shout shout till the kingdom comes

Treading on my dreams
Stop treading on my dreams    X 2

Delilah    X 5


Dying in the Sun

Do you remember
The things we used to say?
I feel so nervous When I think of yesterday

How could I let things
Get to me so bad?
How did I let things get to me?

Like dying in the sun
Like dying in the sun
Like dying in the sun
Like dying    X 2

Will you hold on to me
I am feeling frail
Will you hold on to me
We will never fail

I wanted to be so perfect you see
I wanted to be so perfect

(Repeat Chorus)
