Lyrics

EPs, B' SIDES, UNRELEASED, RARE

a fast one

away

baby blues

carousel

crazy

chrome paint

false

go your own way

god be with you

i don't need

it's only rock n' roll

liar

like you used to

many days

nothing left at all

paparazzi on mopeds

pathetic senses

reason

so cold in Ireland

such a shame

such a waste

take my soul (shine down)

the sun does rise

the sweetest thing

them

(they long to be) close to you

uncertain

what you were

woman without pride

yesterday's gone

 

 

A Fast One (A New One)

Tell me I am giving up
Or tell me I'm a bore
But I don't try to tolerate
Your insults anymore

I just wannabe in someone
Else instead of you
Cause everytime you speak to me
You tell me what to do

Tell me what to do, oh
You tell me what to do

Tell me what to do, oh
You tell me what to do

Or I'm remember...

 

Away

Turn away
Turn away
From me
From me

And I pray
Yes I pray
For thee (x3)

Another world, wrapped up inside another place
And I hope and I pray that the pain goes away
Yes I pray (x3)

Turn away
Turn away
From me
From me

And I pray
Yes I pray
For thee (x3)

Bah bah badah badah
Bah bah bah-ah
Bah bah badah badah

Bah bah badah badah
Bah bah bah-ah
Bah bah badah badah

Turn away
Turn away
From me
From me

And I pray
Yes I pray
For thee (x3)

Bah bah badah badah
Bah bah bah-ah
Bah bah badah badah

 

Baby Blues

I wonder what's happening to me
Things are changing so dramatically
I'll search for you, you're not really there
Still I wonder knowing that you do care

I shut up, I shut up, I shut up, I shut up
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up now
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up, I shut up
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up now

I shut up now, I shut up now
I shut up now, I shut up now

He is the best thing to come my way
Perfect picture baby blues in my day
He is the best thing to come around
Sleeping in his cradle safe and sound

I shut up, I shut up, I shut up, I shut up
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up now
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up, I shut up
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up now

I shut up now, I shut up now
I shut up now, I shut up now

Baby blues, baby blues
Baby, baby, baby blues
Baby blues, baby blues
Baby, baby, baby blues

Sha la la (x17)

 

Carousel

River side, river run
I take my tea at one
With coffee and some cigarettes
I watch you dare out the sun
I rule this town with poisoned wells
But with lovers running parallel
Angel dust I'm all mixed up
I think I'm running towards the carousel
Sweetned like a sweetened cherry
Bury me beneath the hills
Whispering with their bare trees
I will aray my conspiracy
I'll wash away all the dirty
Scorch it on a blue heart flame
Settle under a riverbed
Never to come back again
I dig a hole, I dig a well
I try to save me from myself
I think I could I think I will
I think I'm running towards a carousel

 

 

Crazy

Crazy
I'm crazy for feeling so lonely
I'm crazy
Crazy for feeling so blue
I knew you'd love me as long as you wanted
And then someday
You'd leave me for someday new
Worry
Why do I let myself worry
Wonderin'
What in the world did I do
Crazy for thinkin' that my love could I hold you
I'm crazy for tryin'
I'm crazy for cryin'
And I'm crazy for lovin' you

 

Chrome Paint

You always put the blame on me
But it's not the way it's supposed to be
Don't you hang around my door
Don't wanna see you anymore

Mussolini and Adolph knew
It was them who caused world war II
You'd better stay away from me
Cause this could cause world war III

You took it all for a game....

 

False

Something has changed and I don't know what to say.
I used to stand here alone and in my mind say...
The people who're calling you soon turn away
They could hate you tomorrow and love you today..

Because they're false
People can be so false sometimes
When they hold my hands
People can be so false sometimes

Something is standing in my way and I can't see
It's clouding up my vision it intimidates me
I didn't want to come here in the first place
You all designed it you all designed it

Because they're false
People can be so false sometimes
When they hold my hands
People can be so false sometimes

I didn't want it
I didn't want to come here...
In the first place
I didn't want it
I didn't want to come here...
In the first place

 

 

Go Your Own Way

Lovin' you isn't the right thing to do
How can I ever change things
That I feel
If I could
Maybe I'd give you my world
How can I
When you won't take it from me
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way
Tell me why
Everything turned around
Packing up
Shacking up is all you wanna do
If I could
Baby I'd give you my world
Open up
Everything's waiting for you

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it
Another lonely day

 

God Be With You

The truth will never hide
Even though I tried
They tried to take my pride
But they only took my father from me
They only took my father
Even though I cried
Even though I tried again
God be with you Ireland
God be with you Ireland
Sometimes I was afraid
Even though I prayed
I trust my religion now
You took that too some how
Blood upon thy hands
Blood upon thy hands again
(I have served my time)
God be with you Ireland
(So you fool my kind)
God be with you Ireland
(I have served my time)
God be with you Ireland
(So you fool my kind)
God be with you Ireland
God be with you now (x4)

 

 

I Don't Need

The world is consuming me
And I don't feel so happy here today
I'm not, and I don't feel
And I used to be a baby in my day

So where is the one you love?
Does she hold you happy next to her?
And your head hangs lightly
And everyone's slightly drunk tonight
They're drunk tonight again

Nana nana, nana nana, nana nana
Nana nana, nana nana, nana nana, nana nana

I don't need to see you
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
I don't need to see you
No, no, no, no, nooo

My head, it is hanging now
And my eyes are on the ground, the ground, the ground
And everyone's so patronizing
I don't see when the real thing comes around

So where is your mother now?
Did she hold you happy next to her?
And your head hangs lightly
And everyone's slightly drunk tonight
They're drunk tonight again

Nana nana, nana nana, nana nana
Nana nana, nana nana, nana nana, nana nana

I don't need to see you
No, no, no, no, no, no no
I don't need to see you
No, no, no, no, nooo

And they get no work done today
No work done today
No, no, no
No work done today
No, no, no
No work done today

 

 

It's Only Rock'n'roll

If I could stick my pen in my heart
And spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would you think the boy is strange? Ain't he strange?

If I could win ya, if I could sing ya
A love song so divine
Would it be enough for your cheating heart
If I broke down and cried? If I cried?

I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can't you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

If I could stick a knife in my heart
Suicide right on stage
Would it be enough for your teenage lust
Would it help to ease the pain? Ease your brain?

If I could dig down deep in my heart
Feelings would flood on the page
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would ya think the boy's insane? He's insane

I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
I said I know it's only rock'n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can't you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

And do ya think that you're the only girl around?
I bet you think that you're the only woman in town

I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it. I like it...

 

 

Liar

Say it if you want to
And say it if you will
But if you don't say what you are thinkin'
No, I won't take too kindly to it
And all I want is something special,
And you can't give it to me,
And all you do is lie to me,
'Cause you're a liar, liar, liar
I will run, I will fight,
I will take you through the night, night, night, lie
I will run, I will fight,
I will take you through the night, night, night, lie
Say it if you want to,
And say it if you choose
Because if you don't say what you are thinkin'
No I won't take too kindly to it
When all I want is something different
And you could't give it to me
And all you do is lie to me
So you're a liar, liar, liar
I will run, I will fight,
I will take you through the night, night, night, lie
I will run, I will fight,
I will take you through the night, night, night, lie, lie, lie....

I'll fight you, I'll fight you
I'm fighing you

Liar, liar, liar, liar
Liar, liar,liar, ...liar...

 

Like You Used To

When I think about the things I said to you last night
Well I was wrong, I didn't know what I was saying
Anything that wants you
You used to hold me so tight
But now it's gone, and you drastically, baby, bat
Don't you love me anymore, anymore?
Don't you see me, like you used to?
Like you used to
You used to see me like nobody else could,
And now it's gone, the way you're falling forever, ever
And when they told me then that you were no more
Should I leave? Or should I take it all behind me, hind me
Don't you love me anymore, anymore?
Don't you see me, like you used to?
Like you used to
I'm falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down
I'm falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down

I believe you

 

Many Days

You bring out the best in me
You opened up the door
Bringing out the best in me
I'm not afraid anymore
You bring out the smile in me
You opened up my eyes
Bringing out the smile in me
Your burying my disguise

Many nights , many days
I would sit in a gaze worrying
Many nights , many days
I wasn't alive

Take, take, take, take me over

You bring out the best in me
You opened up the door
Bringing out the best in me
I'm not afraid anymore
You bring out the truth
Bringing out the smile
You bring out the truth

Many nights , many days
I would sit in a gaze worrying
Many nights , many days
I wasn't alive

You gotta open up your heart

You gotta open up your mind

 

 

Nothing Left At All

Now, now it's over but the thoughts of you go on
Nothing here, nothing left at all
Oh, oh and how, how I swore I'd never feel like this again
But then you, then you brought it through

Oh no, is there any reason I should walk away?
Is it wrong, is it wrong to want to stay?
And I know if I'd had the choice I'd never let you go
Do you know, do you really want to know?

Now, now the thoughts of you just circle in my mind
Hard to find, you were really hard to find
Oh and although, though I swore I'd never feel like this again
Oh, I can't take it anymore

Because I know if I'd had the choice I'd never let you go
Do you know, do you really want to know?
And I didn't think, I didn't think I'd think about you in this way
Well really, you really made my day

Now, now it's over but the thoughts of you go on
Nothing here, nothing left at all
Oh, oh and how, how I swore I'd never feel like this again
But then you, you brought it through

 

Paparazzi on Mopeds

As I lie here in the bathtub
I wonder
and I wonder why did they take her
And squeeze her life away

Paparazzi on mopeds
Fresh air in their heads
Paparazzi on mopeds
Cotton wool balls in their hand

So ugly, so ugly
Why, you just can't justify
So ugly, so ugly
Why, they even watched her die
So ugly, so ugly
Why

Who was to blame
Was there too much champagne or wine
It could have been fine
Still I knew
A bad deja-vu

Another celebrity dies
And it still mystifies the people
Another icon is destroyed

So ugly, so ugly
Why, you just can't justify
So ugly, so ugly
Why, they even watched her die
So ugly, so ugly
Why, you can't, you can't justify

Justify
Even watched her die

 

Pathetic Senses

Time is an illusion, baby, I'm on your side
Love is a confusion, maybe, you'll never hide
Come to the conclusion, baby, your love has died
Time is an illusion, baby, I'm on your side

Time is an illusion, baby, I'm on your side
Love is a confusion, maybe, you'll never hide
Come to the conclusion, baby, your love has died
Time is an illusion, baby, I'm on your side

I want to jump on your head
Until I get blisters
I will drop bombs on your bed
And you'll be calling your sisters 'cause

Time is an illusion, baby, I'm on your side
Love is a confusion, maybe, you'll never hide
Life was an attraction, baby, but you never tried
Now it's a distraction, maybe, you should have died

I want to jump on your head
Until I get blisters
I will drop bombs on your bed
And you'll be calling your sisters 'cause

Time is an illusion, baby, I'm on your side
Love is a confusion, maybe, you'll never hide
Come to the conclusion, baby, your love has died
Time is an illusion, baby, I'm on your side

Pathetic senses, I'm on your side
Pathetic senses, I'm on your side
Pathetic senses, I'm on your side
Pathetic senses, I'm on your side

 

 

Reason

Nothing to say, nothing to do, nowhere to go,
And I can't get over it and be with you
I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
I don't know what you want
Is there anything that I can do?
'Cause if you weren't somewhere else instead
If you were in someone else's bed
If you were...
The look on your face
You'd told us to come here
A reason to be
Escaping from reality
I'll fight you in fear
Indefinitely
A reason to be
Escaping from reality
'Cause if you weren't someone else insetad
If you were in someone else's head
If you were...
Nothing to say, nothing to do, nowhere to go,
And I can't get over it and be with you
I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
I don't know what you want
Is there anything that I should do?
'Cause if you in someone else's bed
If you were in someone else's head
If you were...

 

So Cold In Ireland

Here is a story of hope and of glory
He's 18 years old and well I fell in love
what after all
Where have you have gone from me?
The one that I love endlessly
We used to have a life
Now it's all gone
Mystify (x8)

Does it have to be so cold in Ireland?
Does it have to be so cold in Ireland for me?
Are they ready for me?
Are they ready for me?
Are they ready for me?

Where have you gone from me?
The one that I love endlessly
We were to have a child
Yesterday's gone

Well I knew the time would come
When I'd have to leave
There you are
Look what they've done to me
They taken my head it's killing me
Killing me (x3)

Does it have to be so cold in Ireland?
Does it have to be so cold in Ireland for me?
Are they ready for me? (x3)

But I'm afraid of returning to Ireland
I'm afraid of returning to Ireland
I see that there is nothing for me
There is nothing for me (x2)

 

 

Such A Shame

Well I feel so sorry for you
You'll always be the same
Cause you're sad, you're sad

And I think you're very selfish
And you play a vicious games
Cause you're bad, you're bad

And you'll end up very lonely
And you may end up in pain
Cause you're mad, you're mad

I think you're awful
I think you're horrible
A waste of space
I think you're awful
I think you're horrible
A waste of space

It's your bad behaviour
But you never see

Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother who endured your pain
Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother who endured your pain

Arrogance, ignorance
Arrogance, ignorance
Arrogance, ignorance

I should think you're very selfish
I should think you're very sad
It's your bad behaviour

I should think you're very thankless
For the things you'd never had
It's your bad behaviour

I think you're awful
I think you're horrible
A waste of space
I think you're awful
I think you're horrible
A waste of space

It's your bad behaviour
Who cares?
But you never see

Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother who endured your pain
Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother who endured your pain

Such a shame, such a shame
Such a fool, such a fool
Such a clown, such a clown
Such a shame (x4)

 

Such A Waste

Pitiful reaction, pitiful disgrace

Pitiful reaction

You should have known your place

Pitiful reaction, pitiful idea

Pitiful reaction

I'll club you in the ear

 

I'll put you in the back dear

I'll punch you in the face

I'll put you in the back

Because you never know your place

 

I have a new perception

Got a new idea

I have a new perception

I'll club you in the ear

 

What a waste of my time
What a waste
What a waste of my time
Your such a waste (x6)

I have a new perception
Got a new idea
I have a new perception
I'll clob you in the ear

I'll put you in the back dear
I'll punch you in the face
I'll put you in the back
Because you never know your place

What a waste of my time
What a waste
What a waste of my time
Your such a waste (x6)

 

 

Take My Soul Away (Shine Down)

That was some revealing light
That you shone on me last night
Have you turned away from me
Because you know that I can't see?
But if you leave me in the night,
Well then you're leaving me in spite
And if you leave me in the day
Well then you'll take my soul away
Nothing ever happens to me
Though I still can't see the things that you see
Was anybody there?
Does anybody care?
No, nobody to show me the way
No, nobody to tell me to stay
No, nobody was there
No, nobody does care
That was some revealing light
That you shone on me last night
Have you turned away from me?
Because you know that I can't see
And if you leave me in the night
Well then you're leaving me in spite
And if you leave me in the day
Well then you'll take my soul away
If you leave me in the night
Well then you're leaving me in spite
And if you leave me in the day
Well then you'll take my soul away

 

The Sun Does Rise

Nightime has gone when all was still
Moon shone the way as we climbed the hill
When we arrived we raised our hands
Now the dawn has come now we understand
The sun does rise in the eastern sky
And love soon comes watch over I
The road was long yes we travelled far
Thought long dark nights without guiding star
Visions of an angel came along the way
Told us "don't be fearful for there comes a brighter day"

The sun does rise in the eastern sky
And love soon comes watch over I

The sun does rise in the eastern sky
And love soon comes watch over I
The journey's been an epic
Sometimes I've been so down
Stranded in a lonely bar the other side of town
Yes we've travalled day and night for many a poor mile
Now it all makes sense as we see the morning smile

The sun does rise in the eastern sky
And love soon comes watch over I

The sun does rise in the eastern sky
And love soon comes watch over I

Nightime has gone when all was still
Moon shone the way as we climbed the hill
When we arrived we raised our hands
Now the dawn has come now we understand

The sun does rise in the eastern sky
And love soon comes watch over I

The sun does rise in the eastern sky
And love soon comes watch over I

 

The Sweetest Thing

I am getting ready for my lover
He is coming home to me tomorrow
I am getting ready for no other
He is the sunshine in, the moonlight of my day

He has never had to disappoint me
He was the sweetest thing
The needest thing in my life
I am getting ready for my lover
He is the sunshine in, the moonlight of my day

It's only fair that you be there with me
And hold my hand
It's only fair that you be there with me
And understand
It's only fair, if you really dare
To hold my hand
It's only fair that you be there with me
Ah, laah... tu ru tu...

I remember sweetness in my childhood
It was the sweetess time, the world was my understood
I remember sweetness in my mother
She did the best she could
She always would for us
Don't you ever have to disappoint me?

It's only fair that you be there with me
And hold my hand
It's only fair that you be there with me
And understand
It's only fair, if you really dare
To hold my hand
It's only fair that you be there with me

Auh lah... tu ru tu...
La ri ri ri ra. .. na na na na
La ri ri ri ra. .. the sweetest thing you are
La ri ri ri ra. .. na na na na, ah
La ri ri ri ra. .. the sweetest thing

 

Them

Oh, don't listen to what they say
Make up your mind
Walk away

Oh, don't even give them the time of day
They put you wrong
Turn away

So why did they all just walk away?
There was something wrong
They didn't want to say

Oh why did they listen to someone else?
I did something wrong
Something somewhere else

Bad attitudes
They all got bad attitudes
Bad attitudes
They all got bad ah-ah

Don't listen to what they say
Make up your mind
Walk away

Oh-oh don't ever happen again
They've all gone wrong
Gone insane

That's why they all just walked away
There was nothing wrong
I didn't want to say

Oh that's why they listened to someone else
I did nothing wrong
Nothing nowhere else

That's why (x4)

 

(They Long To Be) Close To You

Why do birds suddenly appear
Everytime you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you...
Why do stars fall off from the sky
Everytime you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be,
Close to you...
On the day that you were born
The angels got together
They decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair
And put a starlight in your eyes so blue
That is why all the girls in town
Follow you, all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you...
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you....
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you....
Aah... Close to you....(x6)

 

Uncertain

Tears on your face
Honey you're a total disgrace
Oh why, oh why did you bring me here?

Oh, start all over again
Honey you still treat me the same
Oh why, oh why did you bring me here?

Oh, you had everything
Oh, I could ever want
Won't you tell me why
The panic and the fear

Oh, so uncertain in love
You're so uncertain in love
So uncertain

Driving in the car
Honey you mistook me by far
Oh why, oh why did you bring me here?

Oh, breeze in the wind
Honey you had nothing to send
Oh why, oh why did you bring me here?

Oh, so uncertain in love
So uncertain in love, in love, in love
So uncertain in love, in love, in love

Oh, so uncertain in love
So uncertain in, certain in, certain in
So uncertain in love, certain in love, certain in, certain in, certain in

 

 

 

What You Were

Now it's easy for to see
Why peoples lives are so lonely?
And you never understood
You never really could
You were wrong
What you were, what you were
I couldn't say
'Cause you left me here behind
A stupid state of mind
And I'm lonely
Yeah, you left me here behind
A stupid state of mind
And you're gone
'Cause you left me here behind
A stupid state of mind
And you're gone
What you were, what you were
I couldn't say
It took something hard like this
Mistaken to resist
And I'm lonely

 

Woman Without Pride

I'll try to be nice
Be nice if I can
I will try to be nice
And please my man

I'll try to let on
That it's a perfect day
And I'll try to pretend
She's going away

I'll try to let on
She never persisted
I'll try to let on
She never was twisted

I'll try to pretend
She doesn't exist
And I'll try to let on
That you never kissed her

Kissed her

You don't see things like I do

I don't believe
That she has the audacity
I don't believe the
Woman without pride

You don't see things like I do

 

 

Yesterday's Gone

I heard she loved you, I heard she cared
I heard she miscarried and you were scared
Did you run from the one
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's gone there's no return
And she cries all night
Did you run from the one
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's done there's no return
And she cries all night

I believe that a woman can be a slave to a man
I believe that love that you gave and we try it again
Will you return to the one
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's gone there's no return
And she cries all night
Will you return to the one
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's done there's no return
And she cries all night
Did you run from the one
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's gone there's no return
And she cries all night

Return Home
