LyricSong Title
Oh, the alcoholic afternoons when we sat in your room
Do you really think she'll pull through?
You might sleep, you might sleep, you might sleep but you will never dream
I wear black on the outside 'cause black is how I feel on the inside
Burn down the disco, hang the blessed DJ
In the room downstairs she sat and stared
Spending warm summer days indoors, writing frightening verse to a buck-toothed girl in Luxembourg
Is it wrong not to always be glad?
Each household appliance is like a new science in my town
'There is a quick and easy way,' you say before you illustrate
As Antony said to Cleopatra as he opened a crate of ale
And the pain was enough to make a shy, bald Buddhist reflect and plan a mass murder
Keats and Yeats are on your side while Wilde is on mine
But then a strange fear gripped me and I just couldn't ask
Would you like to marry me? And, if you like, you can buy the ring
We can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry and talk about precious things
Why pamper life's complexity when the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat?
But to you I was faceless, I was fawning, I was boring, a child from those ugly new houses
I never talk to my neighbor, I'd rather not get involved
Scratch my name on your arm with a fountain pen -- this means you really love me
LyricSong Title
Belligerent ghouls run Manchester schools
Oh, people said that you were virtually dead and they were so wrong
I just might die with a smile on my face after all
It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate, it takes guts to be gentle and kind
Two lovers entwined pass me by
He's not strange, he just wants to live his life this way
My only weakness is a list of crimes, my only weakness is...well, never mind, never mind
I thought that if you had an acoustic guitar then it meant that you were a protest singer
Do you have a vacancy for a back-scrubber?
And if they don't believe me now, will they ever believe me?
But sometimes I feel more fulfilled, making Christmas cards with the mentally ill
No, I've never had a job because I'm too shy
A double bed and a stalwart lover for sure -- these are the riches of the poor
She said, 'Has the Perrier gone straight to my head? Or is life sick and cruel instead?'
Did I really walk all this way just to hear you say, 'Oh, I don't want to go out tonight'?
This is the fierce last stand of all I am
And now I know how Joan of Arc felt
But still I'd leap in front of a flying bullet for you
Haven't had a dream in a long time
I am the son and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
