Love Is Blind
Oaw / Give me the city / Give me the sea / Give to me everything I need / The future is shining / like a giant metal beast / It shines so bright tonight / with its legs open wide / and love is blind / falls in love with itself again / like it never should / the way it always can / and she is mine / but the world is much bigger now / Oh tell me / should I hold her hand / and give her love / or take her heart / and throw it far away? / Oh now is the time / to jump into it all / I'll just hold my nose / and try not to fall / To seek and to find / instead of walking around / with eyes glued to the sky / I turn them down to the ground / Oh and I used to think / that maybe one day / I'd find the love of my life / Oh but it's so far away / Oh I don't know why / Oh but I / I want it all tonight / and love is blind / falls in love with itself again / like it never should / the way it always can / oh and she is mine / but the world is so much bigger now / Oh tell me / should I hold her hand / and give her love or / take her heart / and throw it far away? / We held hands / and we looked out of the bedroom window / We could see all the buildings collapsing around us / So we kissed / and we laid on the bed / and we waited for the ceiling to fall in / But it never did / In the morning it was all still there / the spilled milk and the dog/turds / in that grey ashtray morning light / I could hear thousands of people / and they were all singing this song: / La lala lala... / Hey butcher! / Oh, oh, oh hey butcher! / What's your name? / Oh hey butcher, what's your game? / Ah, you take all their love / and you suck out their eyes / and then you rip out their hearts / and you eat their insides / Yeah, then you just walk away / with a smile on your face / Hey butcher / hey but cher / I've seen your face before / La ladadow da lalala... / And love is blind.
Don't You Want Me Anymore?
On the night / that I was leaving / the moon rose in the sky / As I came / to fetch my suitcase / and then you began to cry / I've never seen you / look so ugly / as the way you did that night / That night was / eighteen months ago / Now I'm two hours / f rom the station / Yeah I'm coming home again / I'm gonna show / this town who's master / soon as I get off this train / You're gonna love me / more than ever / and the sun will shine again / and I will kiss your face / and I will make you smile again / an d then the whole damn town will come on out to welcome me / Oh they will open all the doors and give it all to me / Oh no but still your voice is ringing in my ears / Don't you want me anymore? / Don't you want me anymore? / And I can't / I can't believe it's happening / I know that / oh there must be some mistake / You've found yourself / another lover / and you're glad we made the break / Oh you don't even / you don't even want to see me / You just wanna wave and say "Goodbye / Go away now, and leave us alone / No this house is not your own." / Yeah / And now the whole damn town has come around to laugh at me / Oh yeah / Oh they can stare for evermore; you do not care for me / Oh no / Oh they can stare now for a hundred thousand years / Don't you want m e anymore? / Don't you want me anymore? / Don't you want me anymore? / Don't you want me anymore?
She's dying / everybody came to see / She's falling / and I know I'll never see her face again / And I don't really know / just why she's leaving / All she ever said / was she just had to go / And I watch her / as she walks away from me / Yeah, I can see her / then I know that in a moment she'll be gone / Yeah, she'll be gone and / and then I'll say / "You've got to understand / She's not really breathing / no not at all / those years of endless rain / they just washed her away." / Oh and I know she's lea ving / Yeah she's going for good / Oh and I'd love to go with you / but I never would / Face it / you've blown it this time round / Now I understand / just why she's leaving / Oh / If she'd have hung around with me / well you know she'd never go, no nonon o / Oh and I know she's leaving / Yeah, she's going for good / and I'd love to go with you / but I never would / Oh and I know she's leaving / Yeah, she's going for good / and I'd love to go with you / oh but I never would / No I never would / No I never would / No I never would / Oh no / Dadadada dadada... / She's never coming back / Face it / She's gone / Oh / Lalalala lalala... / No I never would / No I never would.
As the sun shines down on the land / so her heart is crying for love / And there is no/one there / no/one to hear her voice / and she will sleep alone again tonight / Now the moon is high in the sky / In her room she calls out his name / But he is somewhe re else / somewhere she cannot see / oh and the night is dark between them now / "My god, my God, why did he go away?" / Now the sun shines on a new town / With a smile he gets off the train / He lights a cigarette / leans back to see the sky / Oh and he thinks how much better off he is / without her hanging round / Let's do it / And the day is passing by him / and he has nowhere to stay / At a lonely bar/room table / his mind goes back to yesterday / to the girl who's dead and buried / but her face lives in his eyes / He must forget that face forever / Make the future start tonight / Forget her / But the meal he eats is dead flesh / there is cancer in his cigarettes / and the drinks won't do a thing for him / but revive some stupid memories / Then a hair style that reminds him / makes him run into the night / where the moon hangs high above him now / The same moon that she's praying on tonight / But the wind catches her words / and the moon swallows them whole / Now the moon is high in the sky / In her ro om she calls out his name / The night is cold and dark / and she is all alone / The bed is empty now / Her body screams for love / She wants to be with him / oh but he's so far away / oh and the night is dark between them now / "My God, my God, why did he go away?"
Down By The River
Nadadum dadadada dada da... / Take me down / to the river / where I would not go before / through the trees and the rushes / to a place we both know / And I'm feeling much younger / as I kneel on the ground / Dip my toe in the water / of the river where I watched you drown / Nadadum nananana nana na... / Oh when the river ran dry that next year / I could not find your body / Now I'm standing here ready at last / to dive down and reach you again / And I long to be with you / Now these cold nights have come / oh I go down to the river / but the river will stop for no/one / though I ask it it keeps flowing on / When I ask it, it tells me you're gone / Dadow...
