Big Car

YOU SAW HER YESTERDAY
SOMEONE DROVE HER AWAY
IN A BIG CAR, IN A BIG CAR

YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN AGAIN
SHE’S FLYING ON A PLANE
TO BE A STAR, TO BE A STAR

CHORUS

SHIMMERING NIGHTS AND DAZZLING DAYS
YOU ALWAYS FELL IN WITH ALL HER WAYS
THOSE WERE THE GOOD TIMES, YOUR HEART WAS ABLAZE
SHE LOVED YOU AND LEFT YOU IN A DAZE

SHE’S ON THE SILVER SCREEN
SHE IS A MOVIE QUEEN
WITH A BIG CAR, WITH A BIG CAR

SHE USED YOU FOR HER GAIN
IN RETURN YOU GOT PAIN
IN YOUR HEART, IN YOUR HEART

SHIMMERING NIGHTS AND DAZZLING DAYS
YOU ALWAYS FELL IN WITH ALL HER WAYS
THOSE WERE THE GOOD TIMES, YOUR HEART WAS ABLAZE
SHE LOVED YOU AND LEFT YOU IN A DAZE

SHE’S ON THE SILVER SCREEN
SHE IS A MOVIE QUEEN
WITH A BIG CAR, WITH A BIG CAR

HE USED YOU FOR HER GAIN
IN RETURN YOU GOT PAIN
IN YOUR HEART, IN YOUR HEART

CHORUS TWICE

Silver Lining

© Cherry Red Records

THEY SAY ALL CLOUDS HAVE SILVER LININGS
SO MY DAY’S YET TO COME
TILL THEN I’LL HAVE TO CARRY ON
THE WAY I’VE ALWAYS DONE

MY LIFE JUST GOES AROUND AND AROUND
GETTING STRANGER EVERY DAY
I KNOW IF I KEEP GOING ON
SOMETHING WILL COME MY WAY

I LAUGH I SMILE
I KNOW THE TRICKS
TO MAKE PEOPLE THINK I’M FUN
BUT TILL MY SILVER LINING COMES
I’LL STAY THE LONELY ONE

TODAY I PLAYED THE TRICKS AGAIN
I PLAY THE PARTS TO WELL
NO ONE SUSPECTS A THING I DO
THEY REALLY CANNOT TELL

BUT EVEN IF THEY COULD
I DON’T FEEL LIKE RESIGNING
BECAUSE I KNOW ONE DAY QUITE SOON
I’LL FIND MY SILVER LINING

FROM TIME TO TIME
I GO OUT WITH MY FRIENDS
AND I ACT LIKE I’M REALLY HAVING FUN
BUT I DON’T MIND THIS GAME I PLAY
CAUSE I’M JUST PASSING TIME
UNTIL MY SILVER LINING COMES MY WAY

Out Of My Mind

© Cherry Red Records

WHY DO I COME HERE EVERYDAY,
TO SIT AND LISTEN TO THE THINGS THAT YOU SAY.
WHAT SPELL HAVE YOU OVER ME?
I MUST BE BLIND, I CANNOT SEE.
SOMETHING’S GOT A HOLD ON ME,
I HAVEN’T GOT A CLUE, WHAT CAN IT BE?
PEOPLE TELL ME TO BEWARE,
BUT WHEN I’M WITH YOU, I DON’T CARE.
WHATEVER YOU DO, WHATEVER YOU SAY,
I’M BEHIND YOU ALL THE WAY.
I DON’T KNOW WHY, BUT I MUST TRY
TO SHAKE YOU OUT OF MY MIND.

Chorus

OUT OF MY MIND
NO-ONE KNOWS WHY I PUT UP WITH IT
OUT OF MY MIND
THAT’S THE WAY IT’S MEANT TO BE
THAT IS IT AS I CAN SEE
THAT’S THE WAY IT’S MEANT TO BE
OUT OF MY MIND.

WHY DO I COME HERE EVERYDAY?
TO SIT AND LISTEN TO THE THINGS THAT YOU SAY
WHAT SPELL HAVE YOU OVER ME?
I MUST BE BLIND, I CANNOT SEE.
SOMETHING’S GOT A HOLD ON ME
I HAVEN’T GOT A CLUE, WHAT CAN IT BE?
PEOPLE TELL ME TO BEWARE
BUT WHEN I’M WITH YOU, I DON’T CARE.
I MUST BE STRONG, THIS CAN’T GO ON
I’LL HAVE TO STAND UP TO YOU.
I KNOW IT’S TRUE, BUT WHAT CAN I DO?
TO SHAKE YOU OUT OF MY MIND.

When You’re Gone

 

IT’S A STRANGE KIND OF ILLNESS THAT AFFECTS ME WHEN YOU’RE GONE
AND IT’S A STRANGE KIND OF STILLNESS THAT SURROUNDS ME ON MY OWN

YOU CAN CURE MY ILLNESS, MY STILLNESS AND MY GRIEF
YOU CAN CURE MY ILLNESS, GIVE ME SOME RELIEF

IT’S THE TOSSING, AND  THE TURNING, AND IT’S THE THINKING OF YOU
IT’S THE HOPING, AND THE YEARNING, AND IT’S THE LOVING OF YOU

YOU CAN CURE MY SLEEPLESSNESS, YOU CAN CURE MY GRIEF
YOU CAN GIVE ME HOPEFULNESS, MAKE ME EASY SLEEP

WHEN YOU’RE GONE, ON MY OWN, THE FEELINGS ARE SO STRONG
I CAN SEE, YOU LOVE ME, IT IS REAL

IT’S DAYTIME, AND IT’S NIGHTTIME, AND STILL YOU’RE NOT HERE
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME, FEELS A LIFETIME, AND I’M WANTING YOU NEAR

YOU CAN GIVE ME SUNLIGHT, EVEN IN THE RAIN
YOU CAN GIVE ME PLEASURE, YOU CAN GIVE ME PAIN

WHEN YOU’RE GONE, ON MY OWN, THE FEELINGS ARE SO STRONG
YES IT’S TRUE, I LOVE YOU, IT IS REAL

IT’S A STRANGE KIND OF ILLNESS THAT AFFECTS ME WHEN YOU’RE GONE
AND IT’S A STRANGE KIND OF STILLNESS THAT SURROUNDS ME ON MY OWN

YOU CAN CURE MY ILLNESS, MY STILLNESS AND MY GRIEF
YOU CAN CURE MY ILLNESS, GIVE ME SOME RELIEF

Thinking Of You

 

I’M STANDING IN THE RAIN, THINKING OF YOU
I HOPE YOU FEEL THE SAME, THINKING OF YOU
FRIENDS ASK ME ABOUT YOU, WHAT CAN I SAY?
YOU SAID I WAS UNTRUE, AND YOU WENT AWAY

WALKING HOME, I’M SO LONELY WITHOUT YOU
FEELING BAD, I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
SINCE YOU LEFT ME, LIFE’S SO EMPTY WITHOUT YOU
SINCE YOU LEFT ME, I LOVE YOU

I’M STANDING IN THE RAIN, THINKING OF YOU,
I HOPE YOU FEEL THE SAME, THINKING OF YOU
FRIENDS ASK ME ABOUT YOU, WHAT CAN I SAY
YOU SAID I WAS UNTRUE, AND YOU WENT AWAY

WALKING HOME, I’M SO LONELY WITHOUT YOU
FEELING BAD, I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
SINCE YOU LEFT ME, LIFE’S TO EMPTY WITHOUT YOU
SINCE YOU LEFT ME, I LOVE YOU

WALKING HOME, I’M SO LONELY WITHOUT YOU
FEELING BAD, I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
SINCE YOU LEFT ME, LIFE’S SO EMPTY WITHOUT YOU
SINCE YOU LEFT ME, I LOVE YOU

The Voice

 

I HEAR YOU IN THE NIGHT
AND YOUR VOICE FILLS ME WITH FRIGHT
OH WHY HAVE YOU CHOSEN ME
OUT OF ALL THE OTHERS YOU CAN SEE?

YOU KEEP THROWING THINGS AROUND
ARE YOU LOST OR ARE YOU FOUND
WHEN WILL YOU GO AWAY
OR ARE YOU HERE TO STAY?

THE VOICE, THE VOICE (TALKING IN MY HEAD)
THE VOICE, THE VOICE (TALKING IN MY HEAD)
THE VOICE, THE VOICE (TALKING IN MY HEAD)
THE VOICE, THE VOICE (TALKING IN MY HEAD)
THE VOICE, THE VOICE (TALKING IN MY HEAD)
THE VOICE, THE VOICE (TALKING IN MY HEAD)
THE VOICE, THE VOICE (I’D RATHER BE DEAD)
THE VOICE, THE VOICE (TALKING IN MY HEAD)
THE VOICE, THE VOICE (I’D RATHER BE DEAD)
THE VOICE, THE VOICE (TALKING IN MY HEAD)

YOU HAVE TAKEN OVER ME
AND ALTHOUGH I CANNOT SEE
I CAN FEEL YOUR FORCE INSIDE
I HAVE NOWHERE TO HIDE

I HEAR YOU IN THE NIGHT
AND YOUR VOICE FILLS ME WITH FRIGHT
OH WHY HAVE YOU CHOSEN ME
OUT OF ALL THE OTHERS YOU CAN SEE?

YOU NEVER THINK IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOU
YOU LOOK AT ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE
AND YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO
JUST TAKE A LOOK AROUND YOU, WHAT DO YOU SEE?
IT’S JUST A WAY OF LIFE TO OTHERS
BUT NOT TO YOU AND ME

THIS KIND OF THING WILL CHANGE ALL OUR PLANS, YOU’LL SEE
PEOPLE FROM MILES AROUND WILL COME
TO STOP AND LOOK AT ME
BUT I DON’T MIND I’VE GOT THE ANSWERS IN ME
I KNOW I’LL PUT THEM RIGHT ON ALL COUNTS
THEN THEY WON’T BOTHER ME

NOW WE’VE MADE IT THIS FAR
THERE’S NO GOING BACK
WE’RE HEAR TO PLAY, NOT FADE AWAY
WE’LL SHOW THEM THAT WE’RE HERE TO SAY

UP THERE WITH THE BEST NOW
WE CAN SEE IT ALL
A DREAM COME TRUE, THE CHOSEN FEW
WE KNOW WHAT TO DO

WE’LL SOON LOOK BACK ON THIS AND SAY WE HAD FUN
ALL OF THE PLACES THAT WE’VE BEEN
AND THINGS THAT WE HAVE DONE
WE’LL ASK OURSELVES THE QUESTION, DO YOU AGREE?
WE GAVE IT EVERYTHING WE HAD
AND THAT’S ENOUGH FOR ME

It’s A Game

© Cherry Red Records

IT’S A GAME, THAT’S WHAT YOU TOLD ME
I SHOULD HAVE GUESSED, COS YOU MADE ALL THE RULES
THINGS WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT
IF I’D KNOWN FROM THE START

I BELIEVED THE LINES THAT YOU SOLD ME
YOU TOLD ME WHAT I WANTED TO HEAR
I REALLY THOUGHT YOU MEANT THEM
I DIDN’T THINK YOU’D LIE

CHORUS

I WAS SURE YOU FELT THE SAME WAY
IT’S HARD TO REALISED YOU’VE NEVER BEEN TRUE
OH WHY, WHAT HAVE I DONE TO HARM YOU?
I KNOW NOW I’M SEEING THE REAL YOU

LOOKING BACK IT ALL SEEMS SO CLEAR NOW
ALL MY DREAMS WILL NEVER COME TRUE
YOU NEVER EVER LISTENED
TO WHAT I HAD TO SAY

CHORUS

HOW COULD I HAVE FALLEN FOR YOU, WASTING ALL OF MY TIME?
YOU HAVE MADE A FOOL OF ME, BUT I’LL BE STRONG
I’LL GO ON WITHOUT YOU
WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?
X2
(WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?) – second time

IT’S A GAME, THAT’S WHAT YOU TOLD ME
I SHOULD HAVE GUESSED COS YOU MAKE ALL THE RULES
THINGS WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT
I I’D KNOW FROM THE START

I WAS SURE YOU FELT THE SAME WAY
IT’S HARD TO REALISE YOU’VE NEVER BEEN TRUE
OH WHY, WHAT HAVE I DONE TO HARM YOU?
I KNOW NOW I’M SEEING THE REAL YOU
I KNOW NOW I’M SEEING THE REAL YOU
I KNOW NOW I’M SEEING THE REAL YOU

Is This The End?

 

I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU’VE BEEN SAYING
ALL THOSE THINGS ABOUT ME PLAYING – AROUND,
IS IT ALL GOING TO END?

I DON’T THINK THAT I’VE BEEN GOING
OUT TOO MUCH WITHOUT YOU KNOWING – WHERE,
DO YOU WANT IT TO END?

I CAN COPY WITH YOUR JEALOUSY
BUT HOW CAN I GET YOU TO SEE – CLEARLY?
I DON’T WANT IT TO END

I DON’T WANT TO HARM OR HURT YOU
CAN’T YOU SEE I NEED MORE ROOM TO – BREATHE?
NO, IT’S NOT GOING TO END

WE’VE BEEN GOING OUT FOR YEARS AND I STILL LOVE YOU
BUT I NEED SOME FREEDOM.
I STILL NEED TO SEE MY FRIENDS, SOMETIMES WITHOUT YOU
DOESN’T MEAN I’M CHEATING

PLEASE CALM DOWN – I DON’T WANT TO FIGHT
I NEED HELD BUT NOT QUITE SO TIGHT – DEAR
ARE WE REACHING THE END?

I NEED YOU AS MUCH AS YOU NEED
ME, BUT I DON’T SCARE SO EASY – PLEASE
DON’T MAKE ME MAKE IT END

WE’VE BEEN GOING OUT FOR YEARS AND I STILL LOVE YOU
BUT I NEED SOME FREEDOM
I STILL NEED TO SEE MY FRIENDS, SOMETIMES WITHOUT YOU
DOESN’T MEAN I’M CHEATING

WE’VE BEEN GOING OUT FOR YEARS AND I STILL LOVE YOU
BUT I NEED SOME FREEDOM
I STILL NEED TO SEE MY FRIENDS, SOMETIMES WITHOUT YOU
DOESN’T MEAN I’M CHEATING

CRUISING ROUND ALL HER STREETS, GOING TO THE BARS.
SHE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD, SHE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE STARS.
ESCAPING FROM THE PRESSURES AND THE PROBLEMS SEEMS SO RIGHT,
BUT DON’T YOU CARE HOW SHE FEELS GOING HOME IN THE MORNING LIGHT.

MAKING UP HER FACE WELL, COVERING THE SCARS,
PAINTING ON THE FALSE GRIN, THEN WATCHING FOR YOUR CARS.
DEPRESSION COMES SO EASY WHEN THERE’S NOWHERE LEFT TO TURN,
THE PRIEST ALWAYS REMINDS HER, IT’S IN HELL SHE’LL BURN.

TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, SO MANY MEN AROUND.
BUT SHE KNOWS IT’S EASIER THAN LIFE UPON THE DOLE.
TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, SO MANY MEN AROUND.
TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP· CRIES WITHOUT A SOUND.

CRUISING ROUND ALL HER STREETS, GOING TO THE BARS
SHE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD, SHE CAN MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE STARS.

TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, SO MANY MEN AROUND.

TOO MANY TIMES SHE’S SCREWED UP, CRIES WITHOUT A SOUND.
