LYRICS

(Verse 1)

Oh God I need a drink, cos I can’t fall asleep

I’ve emptied all the bottles so I need some relief

Got to keep on running – it’s good to calm me down

10 miles in my legs give me a buzz I’ve found

 (Chorus 1/2)

Let me feel good

Give me my adrenaline rush

Give me give me give me my adrenaline rush

I’m so high I feel I’ll touch the sky

 (Verse 2)

I want a cigarette, cos it helps me go on

But the hunger it keeps growing it is never done

Jumping from a cliff top to the ocean below

Sensations that can show me where I need to go

(Chorus 3)

Let me feel good

Give me my adrenaline rush

Give me give me give me my adrenaline rush

I’m so high I feel I’ll touch the sky

 Help me feel good

I want, I want my adrenaline rush

I need, I need, I need my adrenaline rush

I’m on the top of the world I feel as free as a bird

(Verse 1)
Money
Life can’t function without money
All your waking hours money
That’s on your mind money
It drives you slowly mad

(Chorus 1)
Forget it
And think of simple things
A child’s smile
From across the street
Such innocence
Can make you heal your woes
All worries
Can disappear

 (Verse 2)
Charges
Life is always full of charges
Always on the increase charges
How to make ends meet charges
They drive you slowly mad

(Chorus 2)
Embrace them
Your loving family
Is such a gift
They help you rise above
Your worries
Your daughter’s laughter
Can make you
So much stronger

(Chorus 3)
Forget it
And think of simple things
A child’s smile
From across the street
You can hear it
Your daughter’s laughter
Can make you
So much stronger

 

(verse 1)

Sally wants a friendship
She doesn’t like to be alone
Tired of the party
She just feels that she’s best at home

Sally wants a friendship
A best friend’s just the thing she needs
Work is not inspiring
She’d like to play among the trees

(chorus)
Don’t think life has to be the same for eternity
There are so many things imagination brings
Your courage is the key where do you want your life to be
The world has all to give to those who want to live

(Verse 2)
Sally wants a friend cos
With a friend she’ll have some fun
They’ll get a little tipsy and 
All their troubles will be gone

(Verse 1)
I live my life as I please
I know that not everyone likes it
I’m free I do what I want
I know it makes some people angry

(Chorus)
You don’t like me
(I don’t care)
You don’t like what i do
(I don’t care)
I won’t fight anymore
(I don’t care)
I’ll just walk away

(Verse 2)
I write music to have fun
I know that not everyone likes it
I’ve always been a self made man
Some people are enraged by it

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

(Verse 3)
I prefer to socialise with women 
I know there will be gossip
I’ve loved my wife for 24 years
There are those who’d like it ended

(Chorus X2)

Vrs 1

The phone rings in my sleep I hear her voice on my machine 

I sensed trembling but I couldn’t pick it up

Right then I conceived a very simple remedy 

I could pay the price 

Then turn and walk away 

In my eyes a moments passion was a distant memory 

Get it on sleep it off and move along 

That’s all love meant to me 

Vrs 2

Her coffee’s getting cold 

She cut her lip up on the cup

It’s ok she said it’s only just my skin

Though she felt the pain it went away the scar was gone 

Unlike the one she had

Across her heart

A little child cries alone in the apartment over me 

Suddenly I felt like she had all along 

That night had never gone

How could I be so wrong 

I was Blind 

Baby I was Blind 

Bridge 

Now that I have grown I think of the child that wasn’t born 

How maybe I had acted hastily 

Now I can’t ignore the pain I should have felt before 

When we were young and she needed me 

You fell deeply in love

Such a strong and crazy love

But you didn’t know your lover wanted to experience it all

You have known times of great joy

Where all was love and happiness

But you have also known the storms
And found the strength to face them all

 

Now you are the parents

Of a beautiful little girl

She makes you so happy you wonder what life would be without her

Now you are a real family

And your love’s grown stronger

What a lovely story for a love, a love that still fights its demons

 

Now you’re sure of one thing

Is that this man you fell in love with so young

Will always be by your side til you’re old and grey

(Verse 1)
Don’t talk to me like that

Watch how you speak to me

Don’t roll your eyes                     

Please answer me kindly

Behave at the table

You must put your phone down

Don’t be so quick to anger

Take your shoes off the couch

(Chorus)
Here we are, my Lily is a teenager…

 (Verse 2)    

Don’t look down on me

Don’t sigh behind my back

Don’t freak out for your homework

Let your Dad smoke a cigarette

Take off those bloody earphones

And talk to me at last

Oh yes you’re very beautiful

You’ll soon get boys around you

(Chorus 1)
Help me not to be afraid of the dark
Help me to find the right way
Help me not to be afraid of myself
Help me please not to stray

(Verse 1)
I need to feel
Your beating heart
I’ll keep you close
We’ll make a new start (X2)

(Chorus 2)
Help me to stay on the right side of the track
Take me gently into the light
Help me find those who won’t stab me in the back
Take me on this wonderful flight

(Verse 2)
I need to feel
Your beating heart
I’ll keep you close
We’ll make a new start (X2)

(Bridge)
We’ll be just fine
Together we’ll shine
I’ll not feel so scared again
We’ll be just fine
Together we’ll shine (-ine) (X2)

(Chorus 3)
Help me not to be afraid of the dark
Help me to find the right way
I’ll take you to a place forever in our hearts
Hold me and together we’ll stay

(Verse 1)
I was a wreck when I came to this place
I was afraid to be a prisoner just a number
All my doubts were eased by the shrink
She spoke to me of wonderful molecules

I was left with my pain in a room on my own
Suddenly everything turned happy and crazy
I started to think I was cured
But the doctor said take your time take your time

(Chorus 1)
In the Psychedelic Resort
They found the best pills for my brain
In the Psychedelic Resort
They manage to demolish all my pain
In the Psychedelic Resort
I can sleep the whole day away                                                               In the Psychedelic Resort
It’s not against the rules to smoke all day

(Verse 2)
It felt good to meet my room-mates
I didn’t feel so alone in this storm
I used to spend some time with Joël in the park
And secretly smoke weed to get high very high

Then Alex was sent home cos he was boozing
Too bad no time to taste it so forget it
There wasn’t much to eat at mealtimes
Unlike the pills which were all so numerous very generous

(Chorus)

(Verse)
I’ve been an alcoholic for so long
I liked the euphoria very young
The substance was my friend all along
But today I decide that I’m done

(Chorus 1)
The wheel has turned and thanks to me
That sobriety’s my new company
The wheel has turned and thanks to me
I won’t destroy my family

(Verse 2)
I’ve been in denial for too long
I wouldn’t listen to anything that was said
But then it came to me what was meant all along
I saw the light and now can clear my head

(Chorus 2)

(Bridge)

(Chorus 3)
The wheel has turned and thanks to me
That sobriety is my new company
The wheel has turned and thanks to me
I won’t destroy my family

The seasons have turned and I give thanks and see

When I don’t drink no more anxiety

The seasons have turned and I give thanks and see

My daughter will be proud of me

Verse 1
Unchained, they threw me out with the dregs
Unchained, they imagined I’d be a wreck
Unchained, they thought I’d become insane
Unchained, they believe that they’re not to blame

Chorus

Nobody knows, oh no nobody knows my friends
Nobody knows, oh no nobody knows my pains

Verse 2
Without them, now I’ve cleaned up my mess
Without them, all my errors to confess
Without them, I feel free like a bird
And now, I know my voice can be heard
Nobody knows, oh no nobody knows my friends
Nobody knows, oh no nobody knows my pains

(Bridge)

Verse 3
Unchained, they threw me out with the dregs
Unchained, they thought I’d become insane
Without them, I feel free like a bird
And now, I know my voice can be heard

(Chorus)

(Take me Home…, take me Home…)
Gillian Anderson blows my mind, blows my mind
Gillian Anderson blows my mind, blows my mind
Gillian Anderson turns my heart inside out
Gillian Anderson blows my mind, blows my mind
(Take me Home…, take me Home…)
Gillian Anderson turns my head, turns my head
Gillian Anderson turns my head, turns my head
Gillian Anderson in my dreams speaks to me
Gillian Anderson turns my head, turns my head
Feeling so cold, feeling so cold,
Ice Queen you set me on fire!
I’m burning up with desire for you
So far from me, so far from me
So far from me on your pedestal,
Your beauty is so very far from me
Gillian Anderson I’ve fallen for you, I’ve fallen for you
Gillian Anderson I’ve fallen for you, I’ve fallen for you
Gillian Anderson I see your face on my wall
Gillian Anderson I’ve fallen for you, I’ve fallen for you

Verse 1
I know, sorrow’s all that you gave to me
I know, sorrow’s all that you gave to me
Some tears never dry, it’s my darkest day
Some tears never dry, there’s no other way


(Chorus)
Empty rooms kingdoms of doom
These voices keep calling me
TV news alone with booze
God this love’s deserted me


Verse 2
We wrote the laws, I still don’t want to obey
This feeling grows, oh God I’ve lost my way
Sleepers never die, need to hibernate
Sleepers never die, simple twist of fate


Chorus 2 (= Chorus 1)
Bridge
Like a new born searching for his mother’s milk
Like an insect trapped within a spider’s silk
Lack of interest nothing but my everyday
I’m really down, I could waste away (X2)


Chorus 3
Empty rooms kingdoms of doom
These voices keep calling me
TV news alone with booze
God this love’s deserted me
Pouring rain on my dreadful pain
Dark River’s calling me
An endless love might be fatal
Please Mum come save me

(Verse 1)
You are tearing yourselves apart
And my friendship’s pushed to the limit
Each of you are hurting
And so am I, and so am I with you
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know what to say
When you ask me, ask me what to do
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know what to do
When you ask me, ask me what to say

(Chorus)

I don’t want to hear your secrets
Someone’s calling, someone’s calling
I love you both, but not together
So please don’t call me, please don’t call me

(Verse 2)
I don’t want to take sides in this
It’s just too painful, too painful to bear
I don’t want to get involved in this
Leave me on the edge, just a bystander
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know what to say to you
When you ask for advice, ask me what to do
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know what to do for you
When you ask me, what you need to say

(Chorus)

I’m feeling good within this song
In the dance my feet can do no wrong
When I hear that tune again
I lose complete control
This song takes away my pain
And I dance till the night is old
This sound, it penetrates my soul
It blows my mind it makes me whole
So good in action, a liberation
Like a monkey jumping all around my house
I can feel freedom, delicious freedom
With good music, all on my own
When I hear that tune again
I lose complete control
This song takes away my pain
And I dance till the night is old
Intoxicating, exhilarating
The rhythm of the music, fills my heart with joy
My feet are flying, accelerating
With the rhythm, with the rhythm of the dance

Verse 1
All night long
All alone
In this room
I write this song
On my own
Full of gloom


Chorus 1
This solitude pains my soul
A way of life that takes it’s toll
Can’t feel any joy only doom
This room to me is a tomb


Verse 2
Everyday
I’m on my way
It’s time to play
End of the show
It’s time to go
Where I don’t know


Chorus 2
Loneliness on the road
Drains me, leaves me cold
This feeling’s poisoning my soul
I need to get out of this hole


(Bridge)
(Chorus 1 repeat)

(Verse 1)
Like a good friend it steals within me
Like a good friend it seems to smile with me
Everything now becomes so easy
Everything now seems to work for me
I’m in heaven
Good things only can happen
I’m in heaven
No, not a stranger now, stranger now
Just freedom
Free of inhibitions
Just freedom
No, not a stranger now, stranger now

(Chorus)
Innoncent we were, innoncent we were
Like children, innoncent

(Verse 2)
Unseen by me it’s not the same
My self control goes up in flames
Once it’s freedom now it’s blame
I cannot come home free from shame
Where am I?
Nothing’s the same
Where am I?
I guess I’m a stranger now, stranger now
I’m in hell
The booze is pulling me down
I’m in hell
I guess I’m a stranger now, stranger now
(Chorus)
Innoncent we were, innoncent we were
Like children, innoncent

Verse 1
This all has left a bad taste in my mouth
So many lies that confuse my mind
I’ve got a pain in my chest, a pain in my chest
I need to rest my brain, rest my brain
I’ve got a pain in my chest, a pain in my chest
I need to rest my brain, rest my brain

Verse 1
My life’s in danger now
Forgiveness is the key, forgiveness
I want to trust you again, trust you like before
I need to find peace, it’s what I’m looking for
I want to trust you again, trust you like before
I need to find peace, it’s what I’m looking for

Chorus
Aaaaaa-aaaaaa-aaaaah
Forgiveness makes for happiness
Aaaaaa-aaaaaa-aaaaah
Forgiveness please be my guest (X2)

Verse 3
You hurt me like no one before
These open wounds are still raw
My aim is to heal, for my love I must heal
Don’t be a drunk again, a drunk doesn’t feel
My aim is to heal, for my love I must heal
Don’t be a drunk again, a drunk doesn’t feel

(Chorus)

Verse 1
You’re living the life you always dreamed
But still you’re feeling sad
You got all you always wanted
Do you know why you feel so bad?
He has put a spell on you
It can happen, it can happen…
It’s something you didn’t plan to do
It can happen, it can happen…
Chorus 1
The guilt of what you did
Is always on your mind
No matter what you hid
The truth is so unkind


Verse 2
Your secret is no longer yours
The truth is out, what do you do?
Time to put your lover in the trash
Your are suffering, what is new?
You have put a spell on him
You turn your back, you turn your back…
Poor guy, you won’t even speak with him
You turn your back, you turn your back…


Chorus 2
The guilt of what you did
Is always on your mind
No matter what you hid
The truth is so unkind
The love you felt for him
Has made you feel unclean
The passion now is dimmed
And happiness just a dream
(Bridge)


Chorus 3
The love you felt for him
Has made you feel unclean
The passion now is dimmed
And happiness just a dream
No matter what you do
It’s hopelessness you feel
Your life is unfulfilled
But your family is real
