Everything Changes (with Take That)
. . .


Well there's 3 versions of this story mine,
yours and then the truth
And we can put it down to circumstance,
...our childhood, then our youth
Out of some sentimental gain I wanted you to feel my pain
but it came back return to sender
I read your mind and tried to call,
my tears could fill the Albert Hall,
is this the sound of sweet surrender?

What a shame we never listened
I told you through the television
And all that went away was the price we paid
People spend a lifetime this way
Oh what a shame.

So I got busy throwing everybody underneath the bus
And with your poster 30 foot at the back of Toys R Us
I wrote a letter in my mind,
but the words were so unkind,
about a man I can't remember
I don't recall the reasons why,
I must have meant them at the time,
is this the sound of sweet surrender?

What a shame we never listened
I told you through the television
And all that went away was the price we paid
People spend a lifetime this way
And that's how they stay
Oh! what a shame!

Words come easy, when they're true.
Words come easy, when they're true.

So I got busy throwing everybody underneath the bus
And with your poster 30 foot at the back of Toys R Us
Now we can put it down to circumstance,
our childhood then our youth.

What a shame we never listened,
I told you through the television
And all that went away was the price we paid
People spend a lifetime this way
And that's how they stay
Oh! what a shame!

People spend a lifetime this way
Oh! what a shame!
Such a shame, what a shame

. . .


I hope there's a golden age,
I pray for my sanity,
Where we don't have to answer to anyone about anything
This is not like the brochure,
Flying cars and sex machines
We're all so compliant
Cause everything is what it seems
And they can't build a satellite to tell you how loved you are,
Or some kind of life device that holds you in you've gone too far
And I don't feel myself again
I thought I'd be fixed by now
Walking through the horizon
I find myself back here somehow
Give me something to die for
Or design a quiet mind
Something to like mankind for
Cause we don't lie my heart and I.
You've been bending so long now,
You think its standing up
And they line up behind you
To build you up, buttercup
We can lose all meaning
Quicker than a credit card
And not everyone's healing
So try your best and don't look too hard
Cause they can't build a satellite
To tell you what's in your heart
Or some kind of life device to hold you in
You've gone too far
And I don't feel myself again
I thought I'd be fixed by now
Walking through the horizon
I find myself back here somehow
Give me something to die for
Or design a quiet mind
Something to like mankind for
Cause we don't lie my heart and I
Will I ever feel that waking
Make it as a lullaby
Don't ask me to explain again
I can't lie to my heart and I
And I don't feel myself again
I thought I'd be fixed by now
Walking through the horizon
I find myself back here somehow
Give me something to die
Or design a quiet mind
Something to like mankind for
Cause we don't lie my heart and I
My heart and I
My heart and I
I've been feeling so lonely
Feeling so low
So low I almost let go

. . .


If a man could beat his own fancy
Then to only breed in captivity
Is pointless
I've been doing what I like when I like how I like it's joyless
Only you know me

I'm doin' fine
And the sun often shines
What are you thinking?
At the worst of my mind
With this thunderbird wine
Baby, I'm drinking

What a waste of all this peace ,
Baby steps and two more sleeps
Till I get to say sorry
I get hysterical, historical; of love is just chemical
Give us something to stop me
Only you know me

Since you went away, my heart breaks everyday
You don't know cos you're not there
You simply found the words to make a lot of feelings fade away -or(our model feelings)
Only you know me

I'm doin' fine
And the sun often shines
What are you thinking?
At the worst of my mind
With this thunderbird wine
Baby, I'm drinking-
Only you know me

Since you went away, my heart breaks everyday
You don't know cos you're not there
You simply found the words to make a lot of feelings fade away-or(our model feelings)
Only you know me
Only you know me

Since you went away, my heart breaks everyday
You don't know cos you're not there
You simply found the words to make a lot of feelings fade away-or(our model feelings)
Only you know me
Only you know me
Only you
Only you
Only you know me

God gave me the sunshine, then showed me my lifeline
I was told it was all mine, then I got laid on the layline
What a day, what a day, and your Jesus really died for me
Then Jesus really tried for me

UK and entropy, I feel like its *fuckin* (beeped out) me
Wanna feed off the energy, love living like a deity
What a day, one day, and your Jesus really died for me
I guess Jesus really tried for me

Bodies in the bodhi tree, Bodies making chemistry
Bodies on my family, Bodies in the way of me
Bodies in the cemetery, and that's the way it's gonna be

All we've ever wanted is to look good naked hope that someone can take it
God save me rejection from my reflection, I want perfection

Praying for the rapture, cause it's stranger getting stranger
And everything's contagious it's the modern middle ages
All day every day and if Jesus really died for me
Then Jesus really tried for me

Bodies in the bodhi tree, Bodies making chemistry
Bodies on my family, Bodies in the way of me
Bodies in the cemetery, and that's the way it's gonna be

All we've ever wanted is to look good naked hope that someone can take it
God save me rejection from my reflection, I want perfection

Bodies in the bodhi tree, Bodies making chemistry
Bodies on my family, Bodies in the way of me
Bodies in the cemetery,
Bodies in the bodhi tree, Bodies making chemistry
Bodies on my family, Bodies in the way of me
Bodies in the cemetery, and that's the way it's gonna be

All we've ever wanted is to look good naked hope that someone can take it
So God save me rejection from my reflection, I want perfection

Jesus didn't die for you, what do you want?
(I want perfection)
Jesus didn't die for you, what are you on?

. . .


I tell myself lies sometimes
Yeah, I say he and I are gonna be alright
But he don't know me
He thinks I'm happy here
And that this big old dark cloud gonna disappear
If he just holds me

He feels the distance grow between us
I just can't wait to slip away

[Chorus:]
Every night I know where I can find you
I just close my eyes and I'm right there beside you
Every time I reach out and touch you
You're gone with the morning
Gone with the morning sun

I wake up from all these dreams
I swear they seem so real to me
And it just kills me
Oh to realize
This life that I'm living
Is nothing like the one I could've had
I just miss you so bad

[Chorus:]
Every night I know where I can find you
I just close my eyes and I'm right there beside you
Every time I reach out and touch you
You're gone with the morning
Gone with the morning sun

Yeah you're the only one

[Chorus:]
Every night I know where I can find you
I just close my eyes and I'm right there beside you
Every time I reach out and touch you
You're gone with the morning
Gone with the morning sun

You're the only one

. . .


(R. Williams)

Oh, Madonna, Madonna

I don't miss you
Just who
You used to be
And you don't ring true
So please
Stop calling me
Your "I love you"'s
Are ten a penny
You're dropping clues
Like you've got any
You got to choose
There's been so many ohhhh

I love you baby
But face it she's Madonna
No man on earth
Could say that he don't want her
This look of love
Says I'm leaving
You're frozen now
I've done the freezing
I'm walking out
Madonna's calling me

She's got to be
Obscene to be believed
That's her routine
Not what she means to me
I found myself
By circumstance
Across a room
Where people dance
And quite by chance
She' danced right next me

I love you baby
But face it she's Madonna
No man on earth
Would say that he don't want her
It's me not you
I've got to move on
You're younger too
But she's got her groove on
I'm sorry love
Madonna's calling me

Oh, Madonna, Madonna

I want to tell you a secret

We're having drinks
With Kate and Stella
Gwyneth's here
She's brought her fella
But all I wanna do
Is take Madonna home

I love you baby
But face it she's Madonna
No man on earth
Would say that he don't want her
It's me not you
I've got to move on
You're younger too
But she's got her groove on
I'm sorry love
Madonna's calling me

. . .


(L. Taylor)

What am I supposed to do
To keep from going under
Now your making holes in my heart and yes it's starting to show
I've been holding back
Is it any wonder?
Since you walked right into my life and interrupted the flow

CHORUS

I wanna know
Baby when you're with me
Who do you think you're foolin'?
Making me feel so short
Turnin' your lovelight down again
Why don't you let me be
You don't know what you're doin'
Making me feel so short
And turnin' your lovelight down again

Did it again, did it again
Baby I've got to know
Are we gonna make it?
Lay it down right beside me tonight and do whatever you feel
Baby your in control
Where you gonna take it?
Don't you think that I'll do you right you know darn well that I will

CHORUS
I wanna know
Baby when you're with me
Who do you think you're foolin'?
Making me feel so short
Turnin' your lovelight down again
Why don't you let me be
You don't know what you're doin'
Making me feel so short
And turnin' your lovelight down again

Do it again, do it again
Do it again, do it again

Baby you turn your lovelight down
And I don't know, just how long I can stick around
Gonna need more, and it ain't just physical
I dunno what I can do, if I've found that
It ain't love this time around
Keep turning down your lovelight, did it again (x 4)

CHORUS

When ever you….
Baby when you're with me
Who do you think you're foolin'?
Making me feel so short
Turnin' your lovelight down again
Why don't you let me be
You don't know what you're doin'
Making me feel so short
And turnin' your lovelight down again

REPEAT AND FADE

Dont let your eyes tell the brain
You should feel ashamed
Everyone needs it baby
And I feel the same
Didnt quite catch your name
Hush, hush, hush
Dont say a thing
Let's see what the night will bring
It might be everything

Oh it hurts
When you're too blind to see
Please dont read my mind
I tell the truth to me

Sin sin sin
Look where we've been
And where we are tonight
Hate the sin not the sinner
I'm just after a glimmer
Of love and light
Deep inside

Hush hush hush
To speak is a sin
And neither of us
Need rescuing
Just relax
It's what Jesus would do
We're made in his image baby
Lets ride this thing through

Oh it hurts
When you're to blind to see
What about us
Well it was just for me

Sin sin sin
Look where we've been
And where we are tonight
Hate the sin not the sinner
I'm just after a glimmer
Of love and light
Deep inside

I wont sing of amore
It dont sound sincere
love is a cliche
But it fits not here
I'll disappear

Sin sin sin
Look where we've been
And where we are tonight
Hate the sin not the sinner
I'm just after a glimmer
Of love and light
Deep inside

Deep inside

Its love
Clean sex joy
I love you
You love my
Hate how it it feels inside
Feels inside

. . .



There's no earthly way of knowing
What was in your heart
When it stopped going
The whole world shook
A storm was blowing through you

Waiting for God to stop this
And up to your neck in darkness
Everyone around you was corrupted
Saying somethin'

There's no dignity in death
To sell the world your last breath
They're still fighting over
Everything you left over

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

And
No one learned from your mistakes
We let our profit s go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is Advertising space

Through your eyes
The world was burning
Please be gentle
I'm still learning
You seemed to say
As you kept turning up

They poisoned you with compromise
At what point did you realise
Everybody loves your lies
But you ahahh

Special agent for the man
Through watergate and vietnam
No one really gave a damn
Did you think the CIA did

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

And
No one learned from your mistake
We let our profits go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is Advertising space ooooohh

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

No one learned from your mistakes
We let our profits go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is Advertising space

I've seen your daughter
Man shes cute
I was scared but I wanted to

. . .



Some will sing a song
To reel 'em in
It's a song I sung before
And a song I'm gonna sing again
I mean every word
I don't mean a single one of them
Oh Lord
Make me pure
But not yet

I tell a joke
Tell it twice
If noone else is laughin'
Then why am I
I split my sides both times
And laugh until I cry
Oh Lord
Make me pure
But not yet

I don't have to try
I just dial it in
I've never found a job that for me was worth bothering
I've got a ton of selfish genes
And lazy bones beneath this skin
Oh Lord
Make me pure
But not yet

Smoking kills
Sex sells
I got one hand in my pocket
But the other one looks cool as hell
I know I'm gonna die
So my revenge is living well
Oh Lord
Make me pure
But not yet

I stopped praying
So I hope this song will do
I wrote it all
For you
I'm not perfect
But you don't mind that do you
I know you're there to pull me through
Aren't you

So I looked for love
I like to search
And I'll be standing for election
All across the known universe
And every president'll get the country she deserves
Oh Lord
Make me pure
But not yet

And I've been seeing
Somebody's wife
She said she'd leave him for me
And I said that wasn't wise
You can't lie to a liar
Because of all the lies
Oh Lord
Please make me pure

. . .



First they ignore you
Then laugh at you, and hate you
Then they fight you
Then you win

When the truth dies
Very bad things happen
They're being heartless again

I know it's gone and there's gonna be violence
(Want you to love me)
I've taken as much as I'm willing to take
(Want you to be)
Why do you think we should suffer in silence
(The heavens above me)
When a heart is broken, there's nothing to break
(Eternally)

You've been mixing with some very heavy faces
The boys have done a bit of bird
They don't kill their own
And they all love their mothers
But you're out of your depth son
Have a word

I know it's gone and there's gonna be violence
(Want you to love me)
I've taken as much as I'm willing to take
(Want you to be)
Why do you think we should suffer in silence
(The heavens above me)
The heart is broken, theres nothing to break
(Eternally)

All is wonderful in past life
Dreaming of the son she wants
You should see me in the afterlife
Picking up the sons of guns

RAP:
When you think we're lost, we're exploring
What you think is worthless, I'm adoring
You don't want the truth, truth is boring
I got this fever, need to
Leave the house
Leave the car
Leave the bad men where they are
I leave a few shells in my gun
And stop me staring at the sun

I know it's gone and there's gonna be violence
(Want you to love me)
I've taken as much as I'm willing to take
(Want you to be)
Why do you say we should suffer in silence
(The heavens above me)
My heart is broken, there's nothing to break

. . .


(Robbie Williams)

Trying to be misunderstood
But it doesn't do me any good
Love the way they smiled at me
Held their face for eternity
Now let them all fly off

When it comes down
It all comes down
And you will not be found

When it's over
It's all over
Even if I make a sound

I'll be misunderstood
By the beautiful and good
In this city

None of it was planned
Take me by the hand
Just don't try and understand

Trying to be misunderstood
Just a product of my childhood
And still I find myself outside
You can't say I haven't tried
Perhaps I tried too hard

No excuses
I won't apologise
Or justify your lies

Come and find me
Tell them to me
Look me in the eyes

I'll be misunderstood
By the beautiful and good
In this city

None of this was planned
Take me by the hand
Just don't try and understand

Can't forgive – sorry to say
You don't know you're guilty anyway
Isn't it funny how we don't speak
The language of love

. . .


Written by R Williams/S Duffy

He's chosen my attic
I feel it in the static
He lives in my basement
And I can hardly face it
My performance is easy
I am the god of romance
And in my confusion
I have the right to reign

He's stolen my Oscars
He trades on my jokes
He makes all my engines go oh oh oh
He put an "e" in the arsenal
A comb in my 'fro
Devine retribution
And away we will go
Hey hey hey hey

Something's happening I can feel it
Moving out of time you'll hear it
Falling in the way you fear it
Jumping thumping shout out something
Jumping thumping shout out something

Listen to the radio
And you will hear the songs you know
Make it effervescent here
And you might have a job my dear

I'm searching for something
Beyond my understanding
Looking for meaning
Where nothing is demanding
There are no surprises
Where nothing is expected
If you offer nothing
Then everyone accepts

He's stolen my Oscars
He trades on my jokes
He makes all my engines go oh oh oh
He put an "e" in the arsenal
A comb in my 'fro
Devine retribution
And away we will go
Hey hey hey hey

Something's happening I can feel it
Moving out of time you'll hear it
Falling in the way you fear it
Jumping thumping shout out something
Jumping thumping shout out something

Listen to the radio
And you will hear the songs you know
Make it effervescent here
And you might have a job my dear
Ouch
Ouch
Ouch
Radio
Ouch
Ouch ouch
Ouch

*He's stolen my Oscars

He makes all my engines go oh oh oh
He put an "e" in the arsenal

And away we will go
Hey hey hey hey

Moving out of time you'll hear it

Loose lips on ships
I'm getting to grips
With what you said
No it's not in my head
I can't awaken the dead
Day after day

Why don't we talk about it
Why do you always doubt that there can be a better way
It doesn't make me want to stay

Why don't we break up
There's nothing left to say
I got my eye shut praying they won't stray
Oh, when I sexed up
That's what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

You said we're fatally flawed
When I'm easily bored,
Is that okay?
Write me off your list
Make this the last kiss
I'll walk away

Why don't we talk about it
I'm only here
Don't shout it
Given time we'll forget
Let's pretend we never met

Why don't we break up
There's nothing left to say
I got my eye shut praying they won't stray
Oh, when I sexed up
That's what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

Screw you I didn't like your taste
Anway, I chose you
And that's all gone to wasted saturday
I'll go out and find another you

Why don't we, Why don't we break up
There's nothing left to say
I got my eye shut praying they won't stray
Oh! When I sexed up
That's what makes the difference today
I hope you blow away

. . .


You can't manufacture a miracle
The silence was pitiful that day.
A love is getting too cynical
Passion's just physical these days
You analyze everyone you meet
But get no sign, love ain't kind
every night you admit defeat
and cry yourself blind

[Chorus]
If you can't wake up in the morning
Cause your bed lies vacant at night
If you're lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can't control it, try as you might
May you find that love that won't leave you
May you find it by the end of the day
You won't be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way

The DJ said on the radio
Life should be stereo, each day
In the past you cast the unsuitable
Instead of some kind of beautiful, you just couldn't wait
All your friends think you're satisfied
But they can't see your soul no, no, no
Forgot the time feeling petrified, when they lived alone

[Repeat chorus]

Some kind of beautiful (will come your way)
[x4]

All your friends think you're satisfied
But they can't see your soul no no no
Forgot the time feeling petrified
When they lived alone

[Repeat chorus]

. . .


So unimpressed, but so in awe
Such a saint, but such a whore
So self-aware, so full of shit
So indecisive, so adament
I'm contemplating, thinkin' about thinkin'
It's overrated, just get another drink and

Watch me come undone
They're selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
I pray when I'm coming down, you'll be asleep
If I ever hurt you, you revenge will be so sweet
Because I'm scum, and I'm your son
I come undone
I come undone

So rock 'n' roll, so coppered suits
So damn ugly, so damn cute
So well-trained, so animal
So need your laugh, so fuck you all
I'm not scared of dying, I just don't want to
If I stop lying, I'll just disappoint you

Come undone
They're selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
Come undone
I pray when I'm coming down, you'll be asleep
Come undone
If I ever hurt you, your revenge will be so sweet
Because I'm scum, and I'm your son
I come undone

So write another ballad, mix it on a Wednesday
Sell it on a Thursday, Friday, out by Saturday
It's a love song, a love song
Do another interview, sing a bunch of lies
Tell about celebrities that they all despise
And sing love songs, we sing love songs so sincere

So sincere

Come undone
They're selling razor blades and mirrors in the street
Come undone
I pray when I'm coming down, you'll be asleep
Come undone
The young pretend you're in the clouds above the sea
I come undone
I am scum
Love your son
You've gotta love your son
Come undone
You've gotta love you son
Come undone

Love your son
I am scum
I am scum
I am scum
I am scum
I am scum
I am scum

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This rope I've been given
I sit and talk to God
And he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don't understand

I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running thru my veins
Going to waste
I don't wanna die
But I ain't keen on living either
Before I fall in love
I'm preparing to leave her

Scare myself to dead
That's why I keep on running
Before I roll eye
I can see myself coming
I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in
Cos I got too much life
Running thru my veins
Going to waste
And I need to feel
Real love and the love ever after
I can not get enough

I just wanna feel
Real love fill the home that I live in
I got too much love
Running thru my veins
To go to waste

I just wanna feel
Real love and the love ever after
There's a hole in my soul
You can see it in my face
It's a real big place

Come and hold my hand
I wanna contact the living
Not sure I understand
This rope I've been given
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand
Not sure I understand

I knew a man Bojangles
And he'd dance for you
In worn out shoes

With silver hair a ragged shirt
And baggy pants
He would do the old soft shoe

He would jump so high
Jump so high
Then he lightly touch down

He told me of the time he worked with
Minstrel shows travelling
Throughout the south

He spoke with tears of fifteen years
How his dog and he
They would travel about.

But his dog up and died
He up and died
And after twenty years he still grieved

He said "I dance now
At every chance in the Honky Tonks
For my drinks and tips

But most the time I spend
Behind these country bars
You see son I drinks a bit"

Then he shook his head
Oh lord when he shook his head
I could swear I heard someone say please

Mister Bojangles
Call him Mister Bojangles
Mister Bojangles come back and dance please

Come back and dance again Mr Bojangles

. . .


I wouldn't be so alone
The they knew my name in every home
Kevin Spacey would call on the phone
But I'd be too busy
Come back to the old ville and dine
Cameron Diaz give me a sign
I'd make you smile all the time
Your conversation would compliment mine

I will talk and Hollywood will listen
See them bow and my every word
Mr Spielberg look just what you're missing
Doesn't that seem a little obsurd
Bow at my every word

Buy up the rights to my book
Live on a ranch from what the box office took
I'll go and visit the set
They'll call me their saviour
All the peoples will scorn celebrity
Lives on the moon
But, I'll be back home in June
To promote the sequel

I will talk and Hollywood will listen
See them bow and my every word
Mr. Spielberg look just what you're missing
Doesn't that seem a little obsurd
Bow at my every word

. . .


I know I stand in line
Until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance
I know that there's a chance
You won't be leaving with me

Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you

I can see it in your eyes
That you despise the same old lines
You heard the night before
And though it's just a line to you
For me it's true
And never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever
lines to say
To make the meaning come through
But then I think I'll wait until the evening
gets late
And I'm alone with you

The time is right
Your perfume fills my head
The stars get red
And oh the night's so blue
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you
I love you...

. . .


Save me from drowning in the sea
Beat me up on the beach

What a lovely holiday
There's nothing funny left to say
This sombre song would drain the sun
But it won't shine until it's sung

No water running in the stream
The saddest place we've ever been

Everything I touched was golden
Everything I loved got broken
On the road to Mandalay
Every mistake I've ever made
Has been rehashed and then replayed
As I got lost along the way

There's nothing left for you to give
The truth is all that you're left with
Twenty paces then at dawn
We will die and be reborn

I like to sleep beneath the trees
Have the universe at one with me
Look down the barrel of a gun
And feel the Moon replace the Sun

Everything we've ever stolen
Has been lost returned or broken
No more dragons left to slay
Every mistake I've ever made
Has been rehashed and then replayed
As I got lost along the way

Save me from drowning in the sea
Beat me up on the beach
What a lovely holiday
There's nothing funny left to say

. . .


Close your eyes so your don't hear then
They don't need to see you cry
I can't promise I will heal you
But if you want to I will try

I'll sing this somber serenade
The past is done
We've been betrayed
It's true
Someone said the truth will out
I believe without a doubt, in you

You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity...
For eternity

Yesterday when you were walking
We talked about your mum and dad
What they did that made you happy
What they did that made you sad
We sat and watched the sun go down
Picked a star before we lost the moon
Youth is wasted on the young
Before you know it's come and gone to soon

You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity...
For eternity

For eternity
I'll sing this somber serenade
The past is done
We've been betrayed
It's true
Youth is wasted on the young
Before you know it's come and gone to soon

You were there for summer dreaming
And you are a friend indeed
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity

You were there for summer dreaming
And you are a friend indeed
And I know you'll find your freedom
Evenually
For eternity
For eternity

. . .


Out of a million seeds
Only the strongest one breathes
You made a miracle mother
I'll make a man out of me

Daddy where's the sun gone from the sky?
What did we do wrong, why did it die?
And all the grown ups say 'sorry kids we got no reply'

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I've got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

Every tear that you cry
Will be replaced when you die
Why don't you love your brother?
Are you out of your mind?

Daddy where's the sun gone from the sky
What did we do wrong, why did it die
And if you've got no love for me then I'll say goodbye

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I've got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I can't contain how I feel
When your love shines down on me
Well if you want it come and make a stance
So when it's in your hands
People show me love

Well if you want it come and make a stance
So when it's in your hands
People show me love

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I got more than I need
When your love shines down on me

If you're willing to change the world
Let love be your energy
I can't contain how I feel
When your love shines down on me

. . .


Oh it seemed forever stopped today
All the lonely hearts in London
Caught a plane and flew away
And all the best women are married
All the handsome men are gay
You feel deprived

Yeah are you questioning your size?
Is there a tumour in your humour,
Are there bags under your eyes?
Do you leave dents where you sit,
Are you getting on a bit?
Will you survive
You must survive

When there's no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

Oh what are you really looking for?
Another partner in your life to
abuse and to adore?
Is it lovey dovey stuff,
Do you need a bit of rough?
Get on your knees

Yeah turn down the love songs that you hear
'Cause you can't avoid the sentiment
That echoes in your ear
Saying love will stop the pain
Saying love will kill the fear
Do you believe
You must believe
When there's no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

I spy with my little eye
Something beginning with (ah)
Got my back up
And now she's screaming
So I've got to turn the track up
Sit back and watch the royalties stack up
I know this girl she likes to switch teams
And I'm a fiend but I'm living for a love supreme

When there's no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

Come and live a love supreme
Don't let it get you down
Everybody lives for love

[Repeat...]

Me no bubbletious
Me smoke heavy tar
Me be groovin' slowly where you are
Notify your next of kin
'Cause you're never coming back
I've been dropping beats since Back in Black

And we'll paint by numbers
'Til something sticks
Don't mind doing it for the kids
(So come on) jump on board
Take a ride (yeah)
(You'll be doin' it all right)
Jump on board feel the high
'Cause the kids are alright

You've got a reputation
Well I guess that can be explored
You're dancing with the chairman of the board
Take a ride on my twelve cylinder symphony
But if you got other plans
The purpose of a woman is to love her man

And we'll paint by numbers
'Til something sticks
Don't mind doing it for the kids
(So come on) jump on board
Take a ride (yeah)
(Doin' it all right)
Jump on board feel the high
'Cause the kids are alright

I'm gonna give it all of my loving
It's gonna take up all of my love
I'm gonna give it all of my loving
It's gonna take up all of my love
I'm gonna give it all of my loving
It's gonna take up all of my love
I'm gonna give it all of my loving
It's gonna take up all of my love

Come down from the ceiling
I didn't mean to get so high
I couldn't do what I wanted to do
When my lips were dry
You can't just up and leave me
I'm a singer in a band
Well I like drummers baby
You're not my bag

Jump on board
Take a ride, yeah
(You'll be doin' it all right)
Jump on board feel the high, yeah

Jump on board
Take a ride, yeah

Jump on board feel the high, yeah

I'm an honorary Sean Connery, born '74
There's only one of me
Single-handedly raising the economy
Ain't no chance of the record company dropping me
Press be asking do I care for sodomy
I don't know, yeah, probably
I've been looking for serial monogamy
Not some bird that looks like Billy Connolly
But for now I'm down for ornithology
Grab your binoculars, come follow me

. . .


Me with the floorshow
Kickin' with your torso
Boys getting high
And the girls even more so
Wave your hands if your not with the man
Can I kick it?
(Yes you can)
I got
(Funk)
You got
(Soul)
We got everybody
I've got the gift
Gonna stick it in the goal
It's time to move your body

Babylon back in business
Can I get a witness?
Every girl, every man
Houston, can you hear me?
Ground control, can you feel me?
Need permission to land
I don't wanna rock, DJ
But your making me feel so nice
When's it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos you're keepin' me up all night

Singin' in the classes
Music for your masses
Give no head
No backstage passes
Have a proper giggle
I'll be quite polite
But when I rock the mic
I rock the mic
(Right)
You got no love, then you're with the wrong man
It's time to move your body
If you can't get a girl
But your best friend can
It's time to move your body

I don't wanna be sleazy
Baby just tease me
Got no family planned
Houston, can you hear me?
Need permission to land
I don't wanna rock DJ
But you're making me feel so nice
When's it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos you're keeping me up all night

I don't wanna rock, DJ
But you're making me feel so nice
When's it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos your keeping me up all night

Pimpin' aint easy
Most of them fleece me
Every night
Pimpin' ain't easy
But if you're sellin' it
It's alright

Come on

I don't wanna rock, DJ
But you're making me feel so nice
When's it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos you're keeping me up all night

I don't wanna rock, DJ
But you're making me feel so nice
When's it gonna stop, DJ?
Cos you're keeping me up all night

And they want us to grow up
We don't want to get a job

Where it's all Kicking off

Baby it's alright Baby it's alright
You don't need to call it off

We just stopped for cheaper thrills
Since the price went up on pills

I was her she was me
We were one we were free
And if there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one

We were young we were wrong
We were fine all along
If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
When you get to where you wanna go
And you know the things you wanna know
You're smiling
When you said what you wanna say
And you know the way you wanna play
You'll be so high you'll be flying

Though the sea will be strong
I know we'll carry on
Cos if there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one

When you get to where you wanna go
And you know the things you wanna know
You're smiling

When you said what you wanna say
And you know the way you wanna say it
You'll be so high you'll be flying

I was her she was me
We were one we were free
If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one

If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
Yeah she's the one

If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one
She's the one

If there's somebody calling me on
She's the one

My breath smells of a thousand fags
And when I'm drunk I dance like me Dad
I've started to dress a bit like him

Early morning when I wake up
I look like Kiss but without the make up
And that's a good line to take it to
The bridge

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow so before
I'm old I'll confess
You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

My bed's full of takeaways and fantasies
Of easy lays
The pause button's broke on my video
And is this real cos I feel fake
Oprah Winfrey Ricki Lake
Teach me things I don't need to know

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And it's starting to show so before
I'm old I'll confess
You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

If I did it all again I'd be a nun
The rain was never cold when I was young
I'm still young we're still young
Life's too short to be afraid
Step inside the sun

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow

And you know and you know
Cos my life's a mess
And I'm trying to grow

You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

You think that I'm strong you're wrong
You're wrong
I'll sing my song my song my song

Life's too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don't have to take the blame

Life's too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don't have to take the blame

Life's too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You don't have to take the blame

Tell me a story
Where we all change
And we'd live our lives together
And not enstranged

I didn't lose my mind it was
Mine to give away
Couldn't stay to watch me cry
You didn't have the time
So I softly slip away...

No regrets they don't work
No regrets they only hurt
Sing me a love song
Drop me a line
Suppose it's just a point of view
But they tell me I'm doing fine

I know from the outside
We looked good for eachother
Felt things were going wrong
When you didn't like my mother

I don't want to hate but that's
All you've left me with
A bitter aftertaste and a fantasy of
How we all could live

No regrets they don't work
No regrets they only hurt
(We've been told you stay up late)
I know they're still talking
(You're far too short to carry weight)
The demons in your head
(Return the videos they're late)
If I could just stop hating you
(Goodbye)
I'd feel sorry for us instead

Remember the photographs (insane)
The ones where we all laugh (so lame)
We were having the time of our lives
Well thank you it was a real blast

No regrets they don't work
No regrets they only hurt
Write me a love song
Drop me a line
Suppose it's just a point of view
But they tell me I'm doing fine

Everything I wanted to be every
Time I walked away
Everytime you told me to leave
I just wanted to stay
Every time you looked at me and
Everytime you smiled
I felt so vacant you treat me like a child
I loved the way we used to laugh
I loved the way we used to smile
Often I sit down and think of you
For a while
Then it passes by me and I think of
Someone else instead
I guess the love we once had is
Officially dead

. . .


We've got stars directing our fate
and we're praying it's not too late
Millennium

Some say that we are players
some say that we are pawns
but we've been making money since the day that we were born
Got to slow down,
cause we'll low down.

Round and round in circles
live a life of solitude
'till we find ourselves a partner someone to relate to
Then we slow down,
before we fall down.
We've got stars directing our fate
and we're praying it's not too late
'cause we know we're falling from grace
Millennium

Live for liposuction
detax for your 'rents
overdose for Christmas and give it up for Lent
My friends are all so cynical refuse to keep the faith
We all enjoy the madness 'cause we know we're gonna fade away.

We've got stars directing our fate
and we're praying it's not too late
'cause we know we're falling from grace
Millennium

Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough
Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough
Millennium
Millennium

We've got stars directing our fate
and we're praying it's not too late
'cause we know we're falling from grace
Millennium

(Sometimes you know)

And when we come we always come too late
I often think that we were born to hate
get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes.
And when we come we always come too late

Hell is gone and heaven's here
There's nothing left for you to fear
Shake your arse come over here
Now scream
I'm a burning effigy
Of everything I used to be
You're my rock of empathy, my dear

So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

Life's too short for you to die

Heaven knows your mother lied
Mon cher
Separate your right from wrongs
Come and sing a different song
The kettle's on so don't be long
Mon cher

So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you

Look me up in the yellow pages
I will be your rock of ages
Your see through fads and your crazy phrases yeah
Little Bo Peep has lost his sheep
He popped a bill and fell asleep
The dew is wet but the grass is sweet, my dear
Your mind gets burned with the habits you've learned
But we're the generation that's got to be heard
You're tired of your teachers and your school's a drag
You're not going to end up like your mum and dad

So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
He may be good he may be outta sight
But he can't be here so come around tonight
Here is the place where the feeling grows
You gotta get high before you taste the lows
So come on
Let me entertain you
Let me entertain you
So come on let me entertain me
Let me entertain you
Come on come on come on come on

I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we're grey and old
'cos I have been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I'm lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel the love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

When I'm feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
And I know I'll always be blessed with love
And as the feeling grows
She breathes flesh to my bones
And when love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

I know a freaky young lady
Name of Cocaine Katie
She makes my temperature freeze
She's got a blood red powder
When she gives a shout
She'll bring you to your knees

Well, we were being clever playing God games forever
She said she only meant to please
But I'm someone's brother, got a father and a mother
You know I'm going to have to leave

South of the border
I think you oughta
South of the border
I think you oughta

'cos you know you're gonna have to leave
To a place where you can breahte
And you know there's no reprieve

There'll be tears on leaving
But there won't be no grieving
'cos a city soon forgets
To me it's magic
To the landlord it's tragic
He's got another room let

There'll be the same old faces in the same old places
Where my youth was well misspent
But I tow the line and move the time
To a town called 'No Regrets'

South of the border
I think you oughta
South of the border
I think you oughta

'cos you know you're gonna have to leave
To a place where you can breathe
And you know there's no reprieve

'cos you know you're gonna have to leave
To a place where you can breathe
And you know there's no reprieve

Lazy days calling to you
Come out to play
The future lies with you
Now you can be sure love is the cure
What we're searching for
Is to have a jolly good time

Crazy days but you'll get me through
And here I'll stay holding on to you
Now you can be sure
Our thoughts unpure
Will unlock the door
And we will have a jolly good time

It can happen in any season
We don't need any reason
To sit around and wait
The world can change in a second so
I find the sunshine beckons me
To open up the gate
And dream and dream

Lazy days don't let them get you down
Wear your smile
I don't want to see you frown
Don't let them get you down

It can happen in any season
We don't need any reason
To sit around and wait
The world can change in a second so
I find the sunshine beckons me
To open up the gate
And dream and dream

Then we will have - a jolly good time

. . .


She's taking me places
I should never have been
She's showin' me faces
I should never have seen
Well these are strange days we're livin' in today
Cest la vie I say

I hope I'm old before I die
I hope I live to relive the days gone by
I hope I'm old before I die
But tonight I'm gonna live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I'm old before I die

She's not feeling stable
She's unable to breathe
Her heart's beating faster
So I'll ask her to leave
These are strange days we're livin' in today
Am I straight or gay

I hope I'm old before I die
I hope I live to see the day
The pope gets high
I hope I'm old before I die
Well tonight I'm gonna live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I'm old before I die

Well these are strange days we're livin' in today
Cest la vie I say, I say, I say

I hope I'm old before I die
I hope I live to relive the days gone by
I hope I'm old before I die
But tonight I'm gonna live for today
So come along for the ride
I hope I'm old before I die
Old before I die
Old before
Old before
Old before I die
Old before I die

Written by George Michael

I won't let you down
I will not give you up
Gotta have some faith in the sound
It's the one good thing that I've got
I won't let you down
So please don't give me up
Because I would really, really love to stick around, stick around

Heaven knows I was such a young boy
I didn't know what I wanted to be
I was every little hungry schoolgirl's pride and joy
And I guess it was enough for me
To win the race?
A prettier face!
Brand new clothes and a big fat place
On your rock and roll TV
But today the way I play the game has got to change
Oh yeah
And now I'm gonna get me so happy

I think there's something you should know
I think it's time I told you so
There's something deep inside of me
There's someone else I've got to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Take back your singing in the rain
I just hope you understand
Somehow the clothes do not make the man
All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me yeah yeah

Freedom)
I won't let you down
(Freedom)
I will not give you up
(Freedom)
You've gotta have some faith in the sound
(You've gotta give for what you take)
it's the one good thing that I've got
(Freedom)
I won't let you down
(Freedom)
So please don't give me up
(Freedom)
Because I would really really love to stick around, stick around

(You've gotta give for what you take)
Heaven knows we sure had some fun boy
What a kick just my buddies and me
(What a kick just my buddies and me)
We won the race Got out of the place
I went back home got a brand new face
For the boys on MTV (boys on MTV)
But today the way I play the game has got to change
Oh yeah And now I'm gonna get myself happy

I think there's something you should know
I think it's time I stopped the show
There's something deep inside of me
There's someone I forgot to be
Take back your picture in a frame
Don't think that I'll be back again
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man
All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow
All we have to see
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me yeah yeah

(Freedom)
I won't let you down
(Freedom)
I will not give you up
(Freedom)
You've gotta have some faith in the sound
(You've gotta give for what you take)
it's the one good thing that I've got
(Freedom)
I won't let you down
(Freedom)
So please don't give me up
(Freedom)
Because I would really really love to stick around, stick around
(You've gotta give for what you take)

Well it looks like the road to heaven
But it feels like the road to hell
And when you shake your ass
They notice fast
Some mistakes were built to last
That's what you get
That's what you get I just hope you understand
sometimes the clothes do not make the man
All we have to see now
Is that I don't belong to you
And you don't belong to me yeah yeah

(repeat chorus)

[spoken]
Girl, come on over here, let me hold you for a little while
And remember I'll always love you forever more
Everything changes but you

We've said goodbye, the taxi cab is waiting
Now don't you cry, just one more kiss before I have to go
Hey girl I know the situation changed
And so much is new but
Something in my life remains the same 'cos

Everything changes but you
We're a thousand miles apart but you know I love you
Everything changes but you
You know that every single day I'll be thinking about you

The rumour's true, you know that there've been others
What can I do, I tell you baby they don't mean a thing
Now girl don't go and throw our love away
I'll be home soon
Back in your arms to hear you say that

Everything changes but you
We're a thousand miles apart but you know I love you
Everything changes but you
You know that every single day I'll be thinking about you
[x2]

Though everything changes around us (baby don't you cry)
We will be the same as before forever more

Everything changes but you
We're a thousand miles apart but you know I love you
Everything changes but you
You know that every single day I'll be thinking about you
[x3]
