I know it’s not your time yet but I see you coming over the hill,
Blaming everything on me is that the way you get your kicks and your thrills,
You should spare a little time for your mind and then your body and soul.
You act a little crazy but I know you’ve got it under control,
And this is me trying to be kind I want you to know,
This whole banging on the roof and stamping on the floors getting old.

Lets come to an agreement there’s no need to get the police involved,
A minor little headache can be cured by a little resolve,
And this is me trying to be kind, I want you to know,
You seem to pardon all my favors now,

SOMETIMES!

I’m a sober boy and you’re a lonely girl,
So lets give it up and stay out of each other’s worlds

Is there any need in bringing in the butchers for a bit of a scare
I’ve had so many hidings in this city that they’ve stopped being rare,
This is me trying to be kind I want you to know,
You seem to pardon all my favors now

SOMETIMES!

I’m a sober boy and you’re a lonely girl,
So lets give it up and stay out of each other’s worlds
I’m a sober boy and you’re a lonely girl,
So lets give it up and stay out of each other’s worlds
Lets make our peace, stand in one line,
Or hold on to these, grudges for time.

underneath the lights on the stage in my hometown
you've never seen the likes so many people singing aloud
sing along to my songs speak in your ear tear you to the bone
to much is never enough no matter how much they'll always want more

All the people so friendly, now all they do is apologise
and all the people so friendly, we're gonna dance dance
dance into the night

we drink like the irish one second you're as high as a kite
the next you're on the floor you know the scots theres always a fight
Has there ever been reason to bite keep your lips underneath you as hard as you might
and pour them from the height and drown me in the cloud of the light

And all the people so friendly, now all they do is apologise
and all the people so friendly, we're gonna dance dance
dance before the fight

And now we've kissed, lets make the most of this
I don't care whos wrong i just don't wanna go home alone

I sacraficed the light a party life never ignored
give me all you've got i can take it all and more
seen it in the film before stingy types and drugs on the go
i've seen this before, it's your turn to show me to the door(?)

Ah you used to be so friendly now all you do is apologise
before you go on your frenzy lets dance dance
dance into the night

And now we've kissed lets make the most of this
befoe the night turns sour lets use this final hour SWEETHEART
And now we've kissed oh lets make the most of this
I don't care whos wrong i just don't want to go home alone

You're outta line you're outta line you're outta line go home x4

(Guitar solo)

And now we've kissed, lets make the most of this x4

And now we've kissed, lets make the most of this
befoe the night turns sour lets use this final hour SWEETHEART
And now we've kissed oh lets make the most of this
I don't care whos wrong i just don't want to go home alone

Kiss and make up at the end of the night
Kiss and make up at the end of the night
Kiss and make up at the end of the night
Kiss and make up at the end of the night

Coming up(?) complaining he can't get the blood off his hands
He cant tell the difference between friends and powder fans
Hooked on what they're given so they just won't go away
Give them this umbrella to get back on a rainy day

Shattered man's(?) complaining by the things we shrug away
Realise it matters when your heart gets torn away
The doctor thinks he didn't do the things he didn't say
Hanging round, looking you can stay in touch now

Each of you complaining about the situation
You wonder what they did so well
Each of you complaining about his chosen vocation
But I'm not dealing with Scum like you

And its just a case of tragic magic
When you can't remember feeling fantastic
just Another case of tragic magic
When the dealer remembers more than the man

Not a lot of people have the problems that they do
Offload all your troubles they'll come back to you
This lad…….(missing lyric)
(Missing lyric)

Keep on complaining(missing lyric) until your fall asleep
Come along and sing with me
Make everyone ecstatic using a chromatic
Still though no one sings round here

And its just a case of tragic magic
When you can't remember feeling fantastic
just Another case of tragic magic
When the dealer remembers more than the man
When the dealer remembers more than the man
remember your no more than the man

And you know what I'll ask you
But I already no the answer
But they say they call me a chancer

And you know what I'll ask you
But i know what you'll say
You can't take prisoners with scum like me

And its just a case of tragic magic
When you can't remember feeling fantastic

And its just a case of tragic magic
When you can't remember feeling fantastic

And its just a case of tragic magic
When you can't remember feeling fantastic

And its just a case of tragic magic
When you can't remember feeling fantastic
And its just a case of tragic magic
When the dealer remembers more than the man
No no, Remember your no more than the more
Remember your no more than the more

Oh it's the tragic magic
You never feel fantastic
Oh it's the tragic magic

Lying in some euphoric vibe
Stories being told, of a girl you'd like to ride,
She seems nice, to the blind man with a drink
but oh man what a tea leaf, no second chance to think
She'll say she's changed, but I know her game,
She'll cane all of your baggies, and leave someone to blame
So I'm never gonna ask her

(Chorus)
Don't let the girl come in, Don't let the girl come in,
She'll put you in a spin, take everythin'
Just dont let her in

I enter in, the middle of the night,
this house it seems so empty, I can feel her kickin about,
the door goes crash, and out goes my guitar
musn't worry much, cos next doors never far,
So i chap the door, and out she comes,
lookin rather smokin', as if nothin has occured
So I'm never gonna ask her

Don't let the girl come in, Don't let the girl come in,
She'll put you in a spin, take everythin'
Just dont let her in
Just dont let her in

Don't let the girl come in, cos you know, you know she'll put you, put you in a spin
So stay away, don't answer open,
Answer nothing more,
Whats is goin' on in your house.
on in your house
on in your house
on in your house

Don't let the girl come in, Don't let the girl come in,
She'll put you in a spin, take everythin'
Just dont let her in

Don't let the girl come in,(dont let her in) Don't let the girl come in, (dont let her in)
She'll put you in a spin, take everythin'
Just dont let her in
Just dont let her in
Just dont let her in

I want you to know I had no place to go
Want you to see what you done to me
Because of him you've thrown me away
You could of gone with him and chose another day

Just because your gullible ranger
You've made me feel like I'm deranged
And that seems strange cause you gave me the life
That seems strange cause you gave me the life

I'm feeling almost dead you're messing up my head
I'm in the wrong direction still no support
Because of him you've thrown me away
You could of gone with him and chose another day
The road that you have taken now
Is all because of me somehow
And that seems strange cause you gave me the life
That seems strange cause you gave me the life

Just because your gullible range
You've made me feel like I'm deranged
And that seems strange cause you me the life

And I'll love my son, like you loved one
I will become another part of you
I'll carry the weight of you

So I'll love my son, like you loved one
It's now my turn to follow a better day
Think of a better way

I'll love my son, like you loved one
I will become another part of you
I'll carry the weight of you

I want you to know I have no place to go
Want you to see what you've done to me

Boy you dug your head in a thousand holes
You got to stand up, you got to take the blows
‘Cause if you don’t take the blows
Then the girl won’t sing and the gas won’t blow

Sometimes I think that I think too much
And that it’s all in my head and I can’t touch
‘Cause if you touch too much
Then the lights won’t go on and the water won’t flush

And I’m chasing all my cares away
Fighting for freedom for one way
And I’m chasing all my cares away
So take me to that beautiful way

Nitrous in my eyes, I blank too much
And if I carry on, my mind will turn to mush
And if it turns to mush
Then the strings won’t batter and the paint won’t brush

He said 'You’re only happy when you’re pissed'
I said ‘No, I’m not’, He said, ‘I insist
How many times could you have blown a kiss
But instead you swung your fist?’

And I’m chasing all my cares away
Fighting for freedom for one day
And I’m chasing all my cares away
So take me to that beautiful way
So take me to that beautiful way

What was that ripping away?
Oh was it, was it a time?
Was it part of a crime?
You can only own your own life
So why own mine? I own mine

And I’m chasing all my cares away
Fighting for freedom for one day
And I’m chasing all my cares away
So take me to that beautiful way

. . .


I love it when you come, I love it when you go.
You bring my tea to the table, but your cookings always slow.
Your stealing all my light, in my only preciuos days.
So when we're sleepin by the night I hope your candle blows my way... hope your candle blows my way... I hope you candle blows my way.

When I'm laughing, I'll be crying
When I'm living, I'll be dying.

. . .


Skip away from a drunken day, & wake me up on Sunday.
Steal away from a drunken night, & wake me up on Sunday.
Thinking back on a hopeless night, & wake me up on Sunday.
I left the pub when we got kicked out, & wake me up on Sunday.

Cause when I feel the need to be thrilled I won't ask you.
Or when I feel the need to be thrilled I won't ask you.

I'm not stealing hope from you
I'm not stealing hope from you


I run away from a broken day, & wake me up on Sunday.
Shift is done & I sing this song, & wake me up on a Sunday.

Cause when I'm looking for something new I won't ask you.
Cause when I'm looking for something new I won't ask you.

I'm not stealing hope from you.
I'm not stealing hope from you.
I'm not stealing hope from you.
I'm not stealing hope from you.

take a note of the scenic road, girl
take a note of the scenic road, girl
take a note of the scenic road, girl
jump around, to the stolen, to the stolen sound.
So jump around, to the stolen, to the stolen sound.


I'm not stealing hope from you.
I'm not stealing hope from you.
(Wake me up on a Sunday.)
(Wake me up on a Sunday.)
(Wake me up on a Sunday.)
(Wake me up on a Sunday.)

i feel like a sun without a sky, feel like a socket without a eye,
feel like a house but not a home, just a dog without a bone,
how can you wink without an eye like a grievence without a cry,
house not a home and i dont know why, just a pig without a sty

The best lasts forever
The best lasts forever

Feel like a sail, but I've been slashed, a vigilanted thats been unmasked,
feel a raft but not ship, sinking on the south face

I know that before when you answered the door
I told you and the world to leave me
I told you and the world to leave me

The best lasts forever
The best lasts forever
Together again
Together again

Have you ever felt like a story untold,
(unsure of the rest)

I know that before when you answered the door
I told you and the world to leave me
I told you and the world to leave me

thinkin about what it was that made you change,
when did i become so deranged
(unsure rest of this verse)

The best lasts forever
The best lasts forever
The best lasts forever
The best lasts forever

I've been on my knees in so many streets, and not just the ones in dundee,
fell on my face being a legless disgrace, ten thousand laughing at me, still
The best lasts forever
The best lasts forever

"witches work only with magic,
and waiting on other hoods/hooks tragic,
pull the cover over one more time,
stab us in the back your trademark crime,
it's never fine

scratch your fingernails right down the blackboard
abuse your manicure why don't you,
whoah oh!
and paperclips can bend and shape my dear,
cause they are cheaply manufactured
just like you, whoah oh!
(a big bar of chocolate)

witches work only with magic,
and waiting on other hoods/hooks tragic,
you can turn me into stone
cause purple snakes thats in their throat,
all on their own

witches work only with magic,
and waiting on other hoods/hooks tragic,
dont come down lookin' for me
cause im 22, and naughty 3?
oh cant you see
you wont get me (x2)

so dont you try to scare me so
with your purple eyes and square toes,
my mother warned me about you
you're not as bad as you look
and i found you in a book
(snakes like little boys)

witches work only with magic,
and waiting on other hoods/hooks tragic,
pull the cover over one more time,
stab us in the back your trademark crime,
it's never fine

witches work only with magic,
and being bold sometimes is tragic,
if you're livin in witches lane
you only have your parents to blame
stay away, stay away from me!"
