"Is There Nothing We Could Do?" (2009)

Is There Nothing We Could Do? Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Rushing round in circles
To brighten all the corners
Busy making friends with all your enemies
You finger through your bible
Whilst looking through your window
The look you gave erased a thousand memories

Ooooh I am sorry, ooooh I am sorry
This page in your story won't turn
Who am I to ask you why
You feel the way you do
If you feel the way you do
Is there nothing we could do?

With advice I'd warn her
Don't idolise your neighbour
Maybe something else is the enemy
But who put out the fire
What you asking me for
The simple things you need for a remedy

Ooooh I am sorry, ooooh I am sorry
This page in your story won't turn
Who am I to ask you why
You feel the way you do
If you feel the way you do
Is there something we could do?

If only you could know there is life through your window
Oh but even so I don't know where would you go
The time you waste would still turn into memories

Who am I to ask you why
You feel the way you do
If you feel the way you do
Is there nothing we could do?

Couldn't you just ask me why
You feel the way you do
There's one thing I'd say to you
There must be something we could do

Just go ahead and ask me the question

album: "Born In The U.K." (2006)

Intro / Swimming Pool Part 1 Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Do you think it matters where you're born?
No, not really, it only matters
That you can be proud of where you came from.
I don't think I know who I am anymore

What about the world
What do you mean
Well if the world was a better place,
Some of these bad things wouldn't happen.
Yeah but there's good things all around,
You just have to look longer and harder
To see them sometimes.

Praise god
For the water
Our son, and our daughter
The sun is here, it will stay a while
Long enough to bring out a smile

The swimming pool is on order
We'll fill it with water
Then swim
To the other side
Full of life and filled with pride

Born in the U.K. Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Then you see it happen again
The world turned over
Wouldn't it be something to live
Your Life On Mars
Or at least demanding
Of some kind of masquerade

I never never ever believed
In things uncertain
Hanging round the corner
Just when do you start doing time
In the case of I, my, me and mine
October Nineteen sixty nine

Where were you in Seventy Six
The long hot summer
You wanna be a rebel
Then turn your hosepipes on
With two years to wait
For the sound of Jilted John

Virginia Wade was winning our hearts
She made us want to live
Vicious and his brothers
Were trying to set us free
But much more than this to you and me
This was the Silver Jubilee

We made something out of nothing
A sense of loathing and belonging

Some of us were gonna be rich
With the Iron Lady
Lennon's gone already
Let's post the boys to war
Oh mother, what're you worrying for
It's somewhere he's not been before

Then you see the Union Jack
And it means nothing
But somehow you know
That you will find your own way
It's a small reminder every day
That I was born in the U.K.

Degrees of Separation Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

We figure out the past through photographs
They took while we were young
Even though there's no way out, we'll find one
We're the love-struck ones
The degrees of separation close in
Look who just walked in

A finger on the pulse is not enough
To show who's wrong from right
You know it's gonna be a long drive
Not an easy ride
The degrees of separation close in
Look who just walked in

Leave the lights on
If you're the last one alive
There's too many strangers on this long
Lonely drive
I'll be by your side
Believe me

Now, no-one knows the year
You're from the past
You look like you're alive
You know it's gonna be a long drive
Not an easy ride
The degrees of separation close in
Look who just walked in

I kept the photograph upon the dash
It helped me realise
That it didn't have to be a long drive
But an easy ride
The degrees of separation close in
We're alone again

Leave the lights on
If you're the last one alive

Welcome To The Overground Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Start your fires
This is the overground
It's inside us
Welcome to the overground
You need reminding
Remember this is your destiny

Think of what's in front of you now
Not of what's been left behind
Come on, saviour
Save us now there is no time to rewind

Simple pleasures, to be found
If you reach the overground
Sunshine, rainfall, making love
You see a rainbow
The streets are changing now
Try other avenues
Make a new map of the world
Decide on where to go

Suddenly, we sense a new day
The feeling just comes over you
No false gods left for us to pray to
Darling, it's just me and you

Sunshine, rainfall
Make a rainbow
Please don't follow us
You mean so much to us
Start your fires
This is the overground
Sunshine, rainfall
You see a rainbow
Streets of fire
Try other avenues
It's inside us
Welcome to the overground

If we go our separate ways
The road will lead us back around
Even in a matter of days
We'll see you on the overground

Journey From A To B Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

I measured the distance from Heaven to Hell
How will we do only time will tell
Oh when you stop worrying
What anyone says doesn't mean a thing

Just tell me you're feeling it
And you're not disbelieving it

I'll pay you in kind or silver and gold
I want to ignore all the stories untold
Make me an offer I cannot refuse
You know if I win then that means you lose

Just say you believe in it
That you're not, not feeling it

Dwelling on the memories
Is such a waste of energy
It's simple when you see it in front of you
On walls, in bedrooms

Hold you're head up higher
Don't tell me you're not strong enough
If your journey's over
I hope you feel that I am the one
Only time will tell

Just say you'll be loving me
For an eternity

Oh I feel tired of all of these games
Everywhere, everything is the same
Tell me you'll promise you might come with me
The start of a Journey from A to B

I'll be happy to carry you
Even though I know I haven't got the strength to hold you
I need you more than ever before
If our journey's over
I hope that you will find someone who will love you more

Now not for the first time
What I want might not be mine
If you say you won't come along
Then I know I can't go it alone

Nothing's Gonna Change Your Mind Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

This would be easier if you'd understand
Face the truth and realise that none of this was planned
The way we worry about such little things
Take a time to take the break
Darling spread your wings
I stole all the roses that make your crown
Now it's easier
To just put aside the things that face us now

Let's dance to the beat of the drum
Let's go out, where we don't know anyone
Cause it's you, I don't need anyone else
I got you, I don't need anyone else but you

Strange how something comes from nothing
I came around to your way
Of thinking about these things
Saw your face in a crowd
I knew that you were special
And it will change my world
If I could help you now

But nothing's gonna change your mind
And no one's gonna help you now
If nothing's gonna change your mind
Then no one's gonna help you find
Your place in this world
So strange we don't need a help you know

Let's dance to the beat of the drum
Let's go out, where we don't know anyone
Cause it's you, I don't need anyone else
I got you, I don't need anyone else but you

And no one could ask for more

But nothing's gonna change your mind
And no one's gonna help you now
If nothing's gonna change your mind
Then no one's gonna help you now, now, now...

Promises Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

I promise you will get old
I promised you everything
To protect you wherever you go
I'll give you this diamond ring

Just promise you will remember
A promise should last forever
Right up to the dying embers
Of a fire that burns so slow

It's a different day everyday
Don't want you to walk alone
But how long can we carry on?
When all of these things have gone

Just promise you will remember
A promise should last forever
It's the last of the dying embers
Of a fire that burns so slowly

It's a beautiful thing to do
Sometimes you just have to walk away
Remember I do love you
Have courage in what you say

Just promise you will remember
Promises last forever
Still left of the dying embers
The fire that burns so slowly

Sometimes you just have to walk away
Sometimes you just have to walk away
Wishing that today was yesterday
Yeah, sometimes you just have to walk away

The Way Things Used To Be Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

The way things used to be, well not anymore
Close your eyes, open up your door
Well I’m not tired, I’m coming alive
But you make up on, let’s go out tonight

These things don’t matter now
We can leave it all behind
That’s all depending on
If you’re free to free your mind

The crucifix still hung up by the door
But Jesus doesn’t come here anymore
Those memories still hanging on the wall
But people there don’t look like us at all

Don’t need reminding of
The way things used to be

I rise you to the top
Then we walk back down again
Look to the future now
Where you’re going, where you’ve been

The universe is smaller than you think
So many years spent blind and then you blink
I promise you we're in to suffering
If you could be my queen, I’ll be your king

Don’t need reminding of
The way things used to be

Take this chance to rest your tired eyes
Come with me, we’ll move to better skies
If where we go don’t make a difference
Just turn around and we’ll come back again

Don’t need reminding of
The way things used to be

Without A Kiss Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

All the songs have been sung
You’re too old and then you’re too young
Did you leave your mark on the world
One as deep as true love
Let’s sing Hosanna

All the stories are told
You’re too young and then you’re too old
Did you leave a mark on the world
One that lasts as long as true love
Take me with you now

To be strung as high as this
Making love without a kiss
And someone you saw again
Back to haunt you there and then
Please take on my love

Evolution is real
Secrets we have never revealed
Did you leave your mark, was it real
Or as deep as the love we both feel

To be strung as high as this
Making love without a kiss
Like a gift you didn’t keep
And it leaves a mark so deep

There’s a million things to miss
Like the chance to take that kiss
where you go, you’ll be someone
With one kiss your life is swung

What you gonna do when you walk away
Walk behind me, it’s alright, I’m Ok
Then what will you do if I walk away
Walk beside me, it’s alright, we’re Ok
Where you gonna do, don’t surrender
Hold me tight, don’t let go

The Long Way Round Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Sit and wait for the day
Where your life might change
And that day never comes
This is rule number one
All the changes must come from you
Is the second rule
Take a long way round
See the sights, hear sounds
Where you'll go, nobody knows

Been this way
Since the day
I was born
Far away
And the walk
In the rain
Makes you feel
Young again

I assumed
You would be my strength
Oh, how wrong I was
That's the wrong way round
How you need me now
The carrousel keeps turning still

This one cried, this one smiled
But we all felt alive
Like a walk in the rain
Made us feel young again
With the crowd singing "all right now"
As the rain came down
It's a long way home
But we're not alone
Life's carrousel keeps turning still

Life keeps turning around, and around
We keep learning from things we have found
Overground

What a fool
To believe
I could help
You to breathe
Getting cold
In the rain
Makes us feel
Young again

If you go
Take a long way round
You'll be lost then found
It's a long way home
But you're not alone
The carrousel bring you back again

Winter comes
We don't have a choice
As we grow
We will find a voice
She looks over her shoulder
The swimming pool freezes over
We'll skate to the other side
Full of life
Still filled with pride

Walk You Home Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Woke up to some bad news today
For a while my eyes stayed closed,
didn't want to face what I had to face.
Sometimes the truth can cut you just like the cold.
And I feel cold. I feel old.

But it could be so good, If I only could,
Walk you home tonight,
Walk you tonight.

Somtimes I feel there's no difference,
between living and dreaming.
Today for some reason I feel like there is.
Sun is shining, leaves are falling down.
Nobody seems to care, that you're not there, you're not there.

But it could be so good, If I only could,
Walk you home tonight,
Walk you tonight.

Feel like I know what crying is, Oh I know what dying is.
Feel I know what crying is, Oh I know what dying is.

Sun is shining, leaves are falling down

The Time Of Times Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Oh, sweet morning
Is your head not right
Did you hear my warning
This is the time of times

And your head feels like your body
You mind is close behind
There’s a teardrop on your shoulder
Says this is the time of times
It’s the time of times again

This is the time of times
It’s the time of times again

Oh, sweet morning
And your head's not right
Did you hear my warning
This is the time of times

And your head feels like your body
Your mind is close behind
There’s a teardrop on your shoulder
Says this is the time of times
It’s the time of times again

The time of times
Yeah this is the time of times

One Last Dance Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

As we lay here tonight
Please forgive me girl if I say the future's not bright
But please take my hand we'll have one last dance
In the place where we first met eyes

Holy city zoo
I recall the name of the place where I first saw you
With your eyes so kind and your smile so bright
I just wanted to take you home

Where you go I wanna go
What you do I wanna do
I'll be your Troy Donnahue
If you'll be my Sandra Dee

It's a trivial pursuit
But I know if I fall on my heart I'll be with you
But please understand I'm just a man and I need you to take me home

We're togheter now
Wanna change my shoes so I feel like you somehow
Need to breathe your breathe and caress your dress
I'll be with you for quite some time

I'll take you where you wanna go
Tell me where I wanna know
I will just go with the flow
As long as I'm there with you

Are the kids ok
Didn't find the time to give you a call today
But my heart's with yours
I'm keepin' score of the things that I have done wrong

Another funeral
All the people I know are beginning to fade away
And I have to say that at least today it's beginning to get me down

To this day I'm lovin' you
We know what we wanna do
I am your Troy Donnahue
and you are my Sandra Dee

Now I know you well
I still love you adore you I need you more than then
With your eyes still kind and your smile still bright
I still want to take you home

I will do all that I can
You're my woman I'm your man
If we still don't have a plan
We'll listen to thunderoad

"One Plus One Is One" (2004)

One Plus One Is One Lyrics – Bad Drawn Boy

Back to being who I was before
Opened all the doors you tried to close
And how did that make me feel
I cracked the ceiling I stared at it too long
Tried to right the wrongs
Reverse the flow Now everybody's waiting outside
Trying to feel what's going on inside
Tried to turn the tide and we failed
As the past meets the future
It gets clearer that it all boils down to love and peace

Give me some peace Please give me some peace
Why can't you see that one plus one is one
Much greater then the sum of the parts
And nobody's waiting outside
I felt deceived I hid behind the sun
Its time to take the gun out of life

Every scene is like the one before
Its time to close the doors on myself
As the past becomes the future
It gets clearer that it still boils down to love and peace

Give me some peace
Please give me some peace

Back to being who I was before
Open up your door, hold me now
Give me some peace, hold me now
Give me some peace, hold me now
While everybody's waiting outside

Easy Love Lyrics – Bad Drawn Boy

Never had an easy love
Never had an easy love
Like the one I'm dreaming of
Find a hand that fits the glove
Of love
Of love

Talking to a friend yesterday
It was good to hear him say
That although two years had passed
Still felt like she could ask
Of my time, of my time
Seems I did something right
Something right

Looking for another pearl

Summertime In Wintertime Lyrics – Bad Drawn Boy

I found a new remedy
To defeat almost anything at all
Is it true you tell me
We're failing to see
That we were dreaming of a lifestyle
I can't believe that I fall for it everytime
The feelings ebb and flow like the tide
It's true what I would do if I were you

Stop waiting for the summertime
In wintertime, that can't be right
Don't subscribe to this jive
Like waiting for the summertime in winter

Yeah
Yeah

And if you turn up the dream
To cure yourself free
From searching for a new afterlife
The purpose of life
You know there's still time
To tune into the right side
I assumed that we were lovers yesterday
The turning tides would love us to pray
You know what I would do if I were you

Stop waiting for the summertime
In wintertime, that can't be right
Don't subscribe to this jive
Like waiting for the summertime in winter

This Is That New Song Lyrics – Bad Drawn Boy

And if I knew the answers
I would tell you now
Just what would be the chances
That I could show you how
If I knew where all the tears were coming from
Add up all the years that you've been gone
This is that new song
I told you about twenty years ago

Do you know what true romance is
And could you show me now
Just what would be the chances
That I could tell you how
If I new where all the tears were flowing to
I'd guide them to a river
Where I'd swim with you down stream
This is that old dream
I told you about twenty years ago

And could you hold me now

Another Devil Dies Lyrics – Bad Drawn Boy

Well your face still makes my day
Just like it did in the past
When you turned me away
I kept coming back for more
That's a choice I chose
You were so distant
But I stayed close

It feels like we've weathered the storm
Without having the privilege of calm

And when we sing
I hear another devil dies
When that bell rings
An angel gets its wings
And if I pushed
Would you all fall down?
Coz I don't need this on my back

The hatred will tear us apart
If you don't do what you did at the start

Should I go or will you stay
We'll find a plan of attack
There's a price to pay
For showing no reaction
To all the simple things
In time you will know what I know
But for now you win

The hatred will tear us apart
Another devil will take out your heart

But when we sing
I hear another devil dies
When that bell rings
An angel gets its wings
And if I pushed
Would you all fall down
Coz I don't need this on my back

It seems like we've weathered the storm
Without having the privilege of calm

Year Of The Rat Lyrics – Bad Drawn Boy

(One, one, one, one, one, one. One, one, one, one, one, one)

June is on the run for so long
Pushed and pulled then shunned
It was so wrong
These fours walls crashing in won't stop me now
Cause I'm alive, I'm out tonight, all night

Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
Every day we've got to hold on
'cause if we hold on we could find some new energy

Streets with flags unfurled like treasure
Thank me for my words, it's a pleasure
Just don't ask me to stay 'cause I'll be gone
But it's alright I'm OK - always

Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
Every day we've got to hold on
'cause if we hold on we could find some new energy

One plus one is one - together
One plus one is one - forever
One plus one is one - together
One plus one is one - forever

Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
Everybody needs to know it's the year of the rat
Every day we've got to hold on
'cause if we hold on we could find some new energy

"One plus one plus one plus one is four"

"One"
"Plus one"
"Plus one"
"Plus one"
"Four"

Four Leaf Clover Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Go on do what you've got to do.
You've got your dreams I've got mine too.
Be strong get off at the next stop.
Don't worry about a thing.
Keep taking it easy.
This time it's not personal.
The universe will help you now.
To find a place you can breathe.
And do what you've got to do.
Keep taking it easy.
Keep taking it easy.
Come on.
I'll let you borrow my four leaf clover.
Come on.
Take it with you, you can pass it on.
Come on.
You know I'm not the kind to say that it's over.
We'll be rubbing shoulders once again in the sun.
Come on.
Take your dreams, where nobody can find them.
Come on.
You know I won't be happy till you've won.
So come on.
Come on over, borrow my clover.
Is there anything left that you haven't done?
Go on do what you've got to do.
You've got your dreams I've got mine too.
Be strong get off at the next stop.
Don't worry about a thing.
Keep taking it easy.

Fewer Words Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Bet you wish you knew what time it is
And it's clear that you don't
Understand a love that requires fewer words
It's been a while since we spoke
But there's still hope
If we materialise the myth
Never trivialise the kiss
Oh it feels like there's no fire left in your eyes
This is how love dies
This is how love dies

Logic Of A Friend Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

There's a feast well prepared at the table
And a beast licking holes in your door
Make a break just as soon as you're able
To run, get out of this hole
Before it takes your soul

I don't know how to hide
I keep my shadow alive
It's easy to defend
The logic of a friend
And I don't know how to tell
Is it heaven or hell
That I'll be going to
Just as long as I'm there with you

There's a clock ticking slow on the table
As the light finds the cracks in your door
Make a break
Just as soon as your able
To run, hold on to your soul
Before it takes you whole

I don't know how to hide
I keep my shadow alive
It's easy to defend
The logic of a friend
And I don't know how to tell
If it's heaven or hell
That I'll be going to
Just as long as I'm there with you

Life Turned Upside Down Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Life is turned upside down
But then maybe it's just
Been put back the right way round
All your dreams realised
There's new fire in your eyes
In despite of its size
You soon realise
That it's alright
Tonight
Feels right

Now there's a cross
That nobody should really have to bear
But then maybe
That's just when life's treating you fair
There are lessons to learn
When you've waited your turn
And things didn't turn out
Quite the way that you dreamt about
But it still feels right
Tonight
Feels right

And it still feels right

Take The Glory Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Summer feels like its over
Winter is on the way
Summer takes all the glory
Blue skies are turning to grey
To live in the hearts of those that you loved
Is not to die
To live in the hearts of those that you loved
Is not to die
To live in the hearts of those that you loved
Is not to die
Like when I heard silence is golden
And I never saw why
Summer feels like its over
Winter is on the way
Summer takes all the glory
Love songs get in the way
To live in the hearts of those that you loved
Is not to die
To live in the hearts of those that you loved
Is not to die

Holy Grail Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Do you know where we're going to?
Do you know what we will do when we arrive?
As I wait for you to set sail.
Don't you know that I hope you find your holy grail.
Suffered in silence so long.
Don't you know it's easy to see where you went wrong.
You forgot you've got oxygen running through your veins.
Suffered in silence so long.
Can't you see it's easy to know where you went wrong.
You forgot you've got oxygen running through your veins.
Do you know where we're going to?
Do you know what we will do when we arrive?
As I wait for you to set sail.
Don't you know that I hope you find your Holy Grail.

Plan B Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Not now baby I haven't got the time
Not now baby I haven't got the time
Not now baby I haven't got the time

If at first we fail
Just wait for it to mature like a diamond

So when your lover(doesn't love you anymore)
And you discover(you may have been through this before)
And there's no answer(there's certainly no cure)
To this disease(it leaves you wanting more)

The saints and sinners behind the former line
And all you winners I'm with you all the time
(all the winners are I'm you all the time)
All you winners behind the former line

B...B...B...B

So when your lover(doesn't love you anymore)
And you discover(you may have been through this before)
And there's no answer(there's certainly no cure)
To this disease(it leaves you wanting more)

Maybe we're just heading for disaster
We're better than this
It's just another chapter
If everything fails
We change the rules
Revert to plan B

Maybe we're just heading for disaster
We're better than this
It's just another chapter
If everything fails
We change the rules
Revert to plan B

"Have You Fed The Fish?" (2002)

Intro Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

"And folks, if you take a look out the right side of the plane You see a cloud that looks exactly like Badly Drawn Boy..."

("Oh my god"..."Dude"..."That really does look just like him"..."That guy's everywhere".)

"...and just so you know we will be touching down in approximately 3.5 seconds."

Have You Fed The Fish? Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

The keys to your heart open the door to the world
You've got to give me two days
And woman I'll make you a girl

Sometimes you've got to rewind to go forward
There's some good times around the corner
But have you fed the fish today?
Have you made your wish today?

I need a new eiderdown
I want some binoculars
Don't want to be obvious
I want to surprise myself
I've killed all the mockingbirds
I've wrestled the octopus
I came out with extra arms
To carry your baggage

Sometimes you've got to rewind to go forward
There's some good times around the corner
But have you fed the fish today?
Have you made your wish today?

Born Again Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Maybe there's a reason why I'm born again
There's something rare going on under my skies
You got to chill out, find a reason for your soul again
And judge the miracle by feel, not size
Infinite the reasons why I'm born again
The modern innocents have soul on their side

Try to capture reasons why I'm born again
The more I look at it the less that I find
But I wont bail, they will be a reason for my soul again
Another miracle has seasoned my mind

Maybe there's a reason why I'm born again
There's something real going on under my skies

I'm born again
My soul again
I'm born again
Find my soul again

Born again
Born again
Find my soul again
And I'm born again
My soul again
Born again, born again, born again, born again

40 Days & 40 Fights Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

You look a lot, lot better tonight
You and I should go out for a fight
We need a holiday
But not today, another day

You need eyes in the front of your head
And a spine with a built in bed
I don't want anybody else to know
So I wont be telling them
I love you, for all the things you do
But I can't even recall your name
Something beautiful about it though

Well good luck to your lady tonight
I took a piece of her heart, well not quite
She stole a piece of mine
Chewed it up and threw it back
I need help to get over pain
But the memories still remain

I loved her friendly eyes
The way they looked at each other
It moves me to tears, like a horror film
And I don't even recall her name
There's something beautiful about it though

Now there's a good, good feeling tonight
Just a feeling that something is right
We can minimalise the pain
Forget that is was ever there

Look at all the possibles
Throw answers out to the world
Its hard, its hard, its hard
Its hard, its hard, its hard
Its hard when you don't know how
But I'll be here to throw you some clues
Don't even have to know your name

Something beautiful about it though
Forty days and forty fights
Forty days and forty fights

All Possibilities Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

All possibilities
Are landing at my feet
There's nothing I can see
But possibilities

All colours are changing in my eyes
Your hopes are all fading, that will never do
You're seeing the world through cynical eyes
I'm seeing the world through the eyes of somebody new
Oh there's a hope left, there's a dream still in my heart
Look past the answers, there's a chance that there's no rulebook for this love

All possibilities
Are landing at my feet
There's nothing I can see
But possibilities

All the colours are changing in my eyes
Your hopes are all fading, that will never do
You're seeing the world through cynical eyes
I'm seeing the world through the eyes of somebody new

Oh there's a hope left, there's a dream still in my heart
Look past the answers, there's a chance that there's no rulebook for this love

I Was Wrong Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

I always hoped I'd build my world around you
And it's a miracle I ever found you
Do the colours of the rainbow radiate to everyone
Now I don't know how I could live without you
But certainly I know I'm not about to
I don't believe in anything I see unless I can feel it too

You Were Right Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

And you,
Were right to bide your time and not buy into my misery
Well the good things are never free
Do the colours of the rainbow look the same to everyone?
And I,
Was rushing round in circles for a reason to believe
Wipe the slime from off your sleeve
You could follow me for weeks
And I'm not going anywhere
Sometimes it's hard to love someone
Till the day that they are gone

And I
Just had a dream the other night
I was married to the Queen
And Madonna lived next door
I think she took a shine to me
And the kids were all grown up
But I had to turn her down
'Cos I was still in love with you

I'm turning Madonna down
I'm calling it my best move
I'll get her tickets to what she needs

I remember doing nothing on the night Sinatra died
And the night Jeff Buckley died
And the night Kurt Cobain died
And the night John Lennon died
I remember I stayed up to watch the news with everyone
And that was a lot of nights
And that was a lot of lives
Who lost the tickets to what they need?

And I
Was busy finding answers while you just got on with real life
Always hoped you'd be my wife
But I never found the time
For the question to arrive
I just disguised it in a song

And songs are never quite the answer
Just a soundtrack to a life
That is over all too soon
Helps to turn the days to night
While I was wrong and you were right

And this was a lesson learned
I'm happy to be your fool
And get you tickets to what you need

I'm turning the lights down low
I'm ready to make my move
I'll get you tickets to what you need:

How? Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

What if there is nothing else for us after all this
I don't care, I don't mind, just as long as we find sometime
Just come back and I'll stay out of the way
An be all the things you need
Another mouth to feed

How can I be sure again, once more
How can I find time to be with you again?

How can I give you the answers you need
When all I possess is a melody?
Yeah, how can I take up the air that you breathe
When all I possess is a melody?

How can I be sure, again, once more?
I don't care, I don't mind, just as long as we find some time
When you come back I'll go out of my way to be all the things you need
Another mouth to feed

How can I give you the answers you need
When all I possess is a melody?
Yeah, how can I take up the air that you breathe
When all I possess is a melody?

How can I find time to be with you again?
When you come back I go out of my way
And be all the things you need
Another mouth to feed

The Further I Slide Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Starting today we're on holiday
Everybody sees you in the wrong way
No one else sees you my way

Your gazes cripple me
Keep life a mystery
I don't want it to change
Just keep them coming my way
That's all a lie
I can't rationalise
The further I slide
I can't seem to get back to your side
'Cos you're a summer child
And I'm a winter mild
I can't stay with the heat
As you blossom out around me

What if there is nothing after this?

Your gazes cripple me
Keep life a mystery
I don't want it to change
Just keep 'em coming my way

Imaginary Lines Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Sometimes I need your body next to mine
I could draw us an imaginary line, I'm
Just don't breath, I don't need your allergies
I am falling out of bed not out of love, love

I know you understand

Using Our Feet Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Anything you're not sure of?

People meet me ask if I got the money to lend her
Find her, tell her she is still on the agenda
Pretty soon we'll be dancing
We'll be using our feet
Just like we always had it easy
Just like we always knew we'd meet

Anything you're not sure of?

People who see me think I vibe on the attention
I just think they're hoping that they'll be getting a mention
But I don't know what their chance is
Of ever finding their feet
And if they know what to dance is
The kind of people I don't meet

After this song I will be earning a fat cent
I'll be working on my American accent
And pretty soon we'll be dancing
Yeah, we'll be using our feet
Just like we knew it'd be easy
Just like we always knew we'd meet

Tickets To What You Need Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

I'm turning the lights down low
Ready to make my move
Get you tickets to what you need
I'm treading the borderlines
And ruining people's lives by giving them what they need
You're quite right to ask what's wrong with me
You want to take a look at my head
Even I've been thinking what's wrong with me
I watch the news instead

I'm turning Madonna down
I'm calling it my best move
I'll get her tickets to what she needs
I'm hugging my eiderdown
Employing a microscope
To find you the things you need

Now I'm ready to tell you what's wrong with me
I'm feeling the emptiness rise
And I'd trade the whole thing quite gladly
For something of similar size
Shape, colour, weight, change your shirt, don't be late.

I'm turning the lights down low
Ready to make my move
Get you tickets to what you need

What's wrong with me, What's wrong with me?
What's wrong with me, What's wrong with me?

What Is It Now? Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

So now that life will never be the same
We've got to face the thought of loneliness again
Try and get inside your lover's brain
Drag an old romance from dirty ditch, and then

So what is it now that it can't be made to feel right
Don't answer now, I know somehow we'll be alright
Level out and help us find a place
You've got to see the sights from somewhere else again, yeah
The modern innocents have changed the pace
They've got to know its all been answered incidentally

So what is it now that it can't be made to feel right
Don't answer now, I know somehow we'll be alright

So now that life will never be the same
We've got to face the thought of loneliness again
You know we'll be alright

So what is it now that it can't be made to feel right
Don't answer now, I know somehow we'll be alright
Yeah, what is it now that it can't be made to feel right
Don't answer now, I know somehow we'll be alright

So now that life will never be the same
We've got to face the though of loneliness again

Bedside Story Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Goodnight my answer, your dreams are still sweet
Goodnight, be careful with yourself
Don't worry about the money, forget about the wealth

You'll be my angel, divert me from hell
Help me, protect me from myself
Don't worry, don't worry

Goodnight my answer, goodnight my answer
Goodnight my answer
Goodnight my answer
Goodnight my answer

A Peak You Reach Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

No sign of life
Pulsing through these ageing veins
I bet at your age
That's easier for you to say
Forcing answers into questions
And worrying that she might stop breathing
On and on we sift through alphabets of life
That never get us anywhere, anyway
I'd like to feel we have the best intentions
I want you to know
That I know it's not easy
I want you to know
That I know it's not easy, easy, easy

Then there's a peak you reach
Out to somebody that's never even there
Somebody that you may hope that might care
For nearby health or distant welfare
I'm pleased to hear
That your warmth is not freezing
Yeah I'm freezing
Cold

I don't to be alone
Is that out of the question
I'd like a happy home
Is that too obvious
Quit being pushed around
And stand on my feet
And kick all these losers
Out of my street

I've been losing confidence in the heat
Just when I'm feeling the strength
I get weak

[Repeat]

That is the peak you reach
I wanted somebody
A peak you reach
That's never even there
A peak you reach
I'd like you to feel we've reached our peak
Peak you reach

Something To Talk About Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

I've been dreaming
Of the things I've learnt
About a boy who's bleeding
celebrate to elevate
The joy is not the same without the pain
Oooh

Ipso facto
Using up your oxygen
You know I'm shallow
Calling out for extra help
You've got to let me in
Or let me out

Oooh something to talk about
Oooh something to talk about
Oooh Oooh Oooh

I've been dreaming
Of the things I learnt
About a boy who's leaving
Nothing else to chance again
You've got to let me in
Or let me out
Oooh something to talk about
Yeah something to talk about
Oooh Oooh Oooh

Above You, Below Me Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Don't want to give
Don't want to steal
Don't want to be anything I'm not
You take answers
I give questions
Like some rolling monologue
Want to be the one to say
That today could be the day
A day to believe in what you know
Is what you know

I will take you as you are
Please accept me as I am
Find your lonely life bizarre
I know it's above you
I know it's below me

All this and more

Don't want to live life in your shoes
I don't feel I know the way
Feeling you
Giving me directions
I don't need
Up above and round we go
First it's fast and then it's slow
Could you connect with my intellect

I won't take you as you are
Please don't take me as I am
Find your lonely life bizarre
You see this in love
You see this in life

THrow an all year round reception
For a love with no connection
Knowing you knowing my
Ignorance to modern life

I know it's above me
I know it's below you
I know it's above me
I know it's below you

I will take you as you are
Please accept me as I am

Find your lonely life bizarre
I know it's above you
I know it's below me

I will take you as you are
Please accept me as I am
There'll be something in the wind
To show us we're right
And tell us we're wrong

I want to know more

Silent Sigh Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

[Ad lib]

Come see what we all talk about
People moving to the moon
Stop baby don't go stop here
Never stop living here
Till it eats the heart from your soul
Keeps down the sound of your
Silent sigh (repeats)
Keeps down all move me down
Could we love each other

Ooh yeah
Come see what we all talk about
People moving to the moon
Stop baby don't go stop here
Never stop living here
Till it eats the heart from your soul
Keeps down the sound of your
Silent sigh [repeats]
Keeps down all move me down
But don't love each other
Stop, no don't love each other

[Ad lib]

Silent sigh, silent silent sigh

[Ad lib]

River, Sea, Ocean Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Us, you and me
River sea ocean
Moving on so far away and dreaming
Quality sea, makes it to the ocean
Far away far away
Let her go, go far away

[Ad lib]

Us, you and me
River sea and ocean
Moving on so far away and dreaming
We can't survive more accidents
Our love is alive you know
It's never spent

[Ad lib]

Us you and me
River sea and ocean
Moving on so far and dreaming

To repeat

Us, you,me
Far away, far away
Let it go far away

Walking Out Of Stride Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

You and me we could never hide
To busy walking out of stride

You and me could never hide
To busy walking out of stride
Take 1,2,3 then 4 or 5
People talking keeps us alive

You and me could never hide
To busy walking out of stride
Take 1,2,3 then 4 or 5
People talking keeps us alive

File Me Away Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

File me away
In your heart someday
You just be you
I'll be me ok

[Ad lib]

File me away
In your heart someday
You just be you
I'll be me ok

[Ad lib]

File me away
In your heart someday
You just be you
I'll be me ok

A Minor Incident Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

There's nothing I could say
To make you try to feel ok
And nothing you could do
To stop me feeling the way I do
And if the chance should happen
That I never see you again
Just remember that I'll always love you

I'd be a better person
On the other side I'm sure
You'd find a way to help yourself
And find another door
To shrug off minor incidents
And make us both feel proud
I just wish I could be there
To see you through

You always were the one
To make us stand out in a crowd
Though every once upon a while
Your head was in the cloud
There's nothing you could never do
To ever let me down
And remember that I'll always love you

Donna & Blitzen Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Merry Christmas

Pay for the light
But you may still slide
Baby it's not your sleigh ride
But this year is ours
Maybe tomorrow
We're gonna see things we never believed
I'll make you want me you'll see
The initial warning is free
But only to reindeer
Oh what a sight
As they take their first flight
Oh darling it's all in time
But I will (To repeat)

We're going to turn all men in to the sky
Oh what a sight, beautiful
And I will, I will sleep tonight

I will sleep tonight

"The Hour Of Bewilderbeast" (2000)

The Shinning Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Faith pours from your walls, drowning your calls
I've tried to hear, You're not near
Remembering when I saw your face, shining my way, pure timing
Now I've fallen in deep, slow silent sleep
It's killing me, I'm dying

To put a little bit of sunshine in your life
Soleil all over you
warm sun pours over me
Soleil all over you
Warm sun

Now this slick fallen rift, came like a gift
Your body moves ever nearer
And you will dry this tear
Now that we're here, and grieve for me, not history
But now I'm dry of thoughts, wait for the rain
Then it's replaced, sun setting

And suddenly we're in love with everything

Soleil all over you, warm sun pours over me
Soleil all over you
Warm sun

Everybody's Stalking Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Been feeling high, and then feeling low
Just strap your hands across my engines
I'm not broke so please don't mend me
You're like a neon sign, just burn so bright
Penetrates like an infection
Gives me feelings I can't mention

Maybe all I need, you need too
Don't wait for me, I'll wait for you

I'm gonna follow you around
I'm gonna wear you down
I don't want to alienate you
You've got as long as it might take you
Things come in ones, and double up to two
Don't wanna rain on your procession
Only seeking your obsession

Maybe all I need, you need too
Don't wait for me, I'll wait for you

Might take a little time
Got all the time we need
i'm not here to try and fool you
Just trying to break on through you
That wasn't right, but then's nothings wrong
I've got a feeling it's all right
I gotta keep you in my sights

Maybe all I need, you need too
Don't wait for me, I'll wait for you

Maybe all I need, you need too,
Don't wait for me, I'll wait for you

Don't wait for me, I'll wait for you

Fall In A River Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Don't ask me where to fall in a river
Might not deliver you all the way home
I guess that you think I'm stupid or something
Well that's a good thing
That's okay

Well that's a good thing, that's okay

Camping Next To Water Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Camping next to water
A fish infested slaughter
I feed the fishes into me
It's misty within reason
I'm hoping I don't freeze here
I fuel the fire, feed its glow
But there's no use in feeling
All the things I'm feeling
There's no one here to feel with me

The second day is easier
Though it may be breezier
And the snow is falling down
But as the fire smoulders
I never will grow older
Because I drink from waterfalls
The stars above shine on me
I beckon them to fall on me
I'll catch and save them in a jar

My feet a mass of blisters
Collecting frost on whiskers
As I taste the morning dew
I think my mind is clearer now
I want you to be nearer now
I'm ready to come back to you
Cause there's no use in feeling
All the things I'm feeling
There's no one here to feel with me

Stone On The Water Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

So we restore harmony
Smooth the lines on the face of an old enemy
But there's no wood on the fire again
We could meet in a place1 you know where
I know when to go

Skimmed like a stone on the water
Fall with no trace to lie permanently
Ooh

Into the valley we roam, where we fumble around
Till we find our way home
Yet all we have is an old ball of string
Will it reach to the end of this dark labyrinth
No

Skimmed like a stone on the water
Fall with no trace to lie permanently

another Pearl Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Why are you trembling so much
I don't think I ever felt so good
When all I need is to be free
Where I love you and you love me
Follow the circle sur la plage
On a mono coloured trip voyage
This is the colour of my world
Stay and watch me find another pearl

Follow the gold leaf trail back where
We were young and didn't have a care
Tracing the circles that we made
I don't wanna live life in the shade
Will this be a desert or a beach
Or a place to find the things we need

Now you and I make up perfect things
Watch me trade my wheels for wings
But don't ever use the wings to fly
Just the essence of a lullaby
Now I am a giant grain of sand
But I maybe slipping through your hand
Follow my colour coded world
And I watch me find another pearl

It's a sound that I love
And it came from above
There's the sound of the sea
Are you following me?

Let's walk to the sound of distant shells
To a place where life would have no end
You'd be the mother of my pearls
If you follow me into my world
Back to a place where we'd be free
Where I love you and you love me
This is the colour of my world
Watch me find another pearl

Once Around The Block Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

You quiver like a candle on fire
I'm putting you out
Maybe tonight we could be the last shout
But I'm fascinated by your style
Your beauty will last for a while

You're feeling instead of being
The more that I live on the inside
There's nothing to give
I'm infatuated by your moves
I'm got to search out for your clues

I want to repair your desire
And call it a gift that I stole from
just wanting to live
Now I see the vision through your eyes
Your innocence no longer fuels surprise

Trying to outrun your fear
Your running to lose, heart on your sleeve
And your soul in your shoes
Take a left, a sharp left
And another left, meet me on the corner
And we'll start again

This Song Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

This song will need you when your old
This song will heat you when your cold
Believe you when I don't
This song will heal you from your soul

This song will help you find a place to live
And teach you not to take but give
This song will help you in your dying hours
This song will send your lover flowers

Blessed by the song and the gifts that it brings
Beautiful song, it has wings

Magic In The Air Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

We laughed so much, then we cried all night
And you left your shoes in the tree, with me
I'll wear them to your house, tonight
Magic in the air, tonight

Yes, I might just try her
How she made me feel
Today, today, today, feels right

We slept on leaves on my drive, all night
And you gave me no restime
Nothing in this life for me, tonight
But nothing ever seemed so bright

And if you should lose me
You will track me down again
Before the summer ends

Cause A Rockslide Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Can I get close to ya
If only for a while
I don't need to busy you
You're the jive guru and I want to sing along with you
With you
Your sweetness, would cause a rockslide
If only before the summertime
This could be our last goodbye
Please darling please don't cry
Ooh ooh

Can I get close to ya
If only for a while
I don't need to busy you
You're the jive guru and I want to sing along with you
Sing along with you
Your sweetness, would cause a rockslide
If only before the summertime
This could be our last goodbye
Please darling please don't cry
Ooh ooh

Pissing In The Wind Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

I've been pissing in the wind
I chanced a foolish grin
And dribbled on my chin
Now the ground shifts beneath my feet
The faces that I greet never know my name

Just give me something
I'll take nothing
Just give me something
I'll take nothing

Now the drought is crippled by the rain
That hammers on my pain
We lose ourselves again
But all we need is to find a place to look
Our worm is on its hook
A love which dangles free
Lets watch it swim against the waters flow
In doubt the courage grows with no guarantee

Just give me something
I'll take nothing
Just give me something
I'll take nothing

And so it goes
A moral to the tale
As tortoise catches snail
A strong heart will prevail

It keeps on pumping
It still needs something
Just give it something
I'll take nothing
Just give it something
To keep it pumping
And I'll take nothing
Just give me something

Disillusion Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

Seems you created your own illusion
Fuelled by an image of me
Well I couldn't stay at your side
It wouldn't be right
A picture that I just don't see

Why do you have to make it so complicated
Can't it just be beautiful
I don't want to stifle your flight
I didn't mean to fall in love

Always in pursuit of the perfect people
Oh and I can see that it shows
But there's just an innocence in you I wanna wring out
I know it could be beautiful

But I don't want a part ofsome situation
I don't want to be in that boat
I don't want to stifle your flight
I didn't mean to fall in love

Seems you created your own illusion
Fuelled by an image of me
Well I couldn't stay at your side
It wouldn't be right
A picture that I just don't see

Say It Again Lyrics – Badly Drawn Boys

You squeeze the life right out of me
Like sapping the juice of a bumblebee
And then you call me honey
You say it once and it isn't funny
When you say it again
Yeah Yeah Yeah

Now inside there's a style going on
A head full of dreams only room for one
Now I know you can't live without me
But I've no doubt that you'll never doubt me
Like you did before
Yeah Yeah Yeah

And we're pumping out love into the sea
I'm full bodied and bursting with energy
Cold blooded your engines are running
But where your going I'm not coming
Cause I'm happy here
Happy here

Say it again
Say it again

Now we've found a rock steady beat
Now all we need is a melody
And words that mean something and nothing
So people hear and can sing along
Until they say it again
Say it again

If there's trouble ahead it won't be bothering me
With no future I'll live on a memory
Dried of thoughts but my nose is runny
Say what you think but I know I'm funny

And I'll Say it again
Say it again

Epitaph lyrics - badly drawn boy

Please don't leave me
Wanting more
I hope you never die
There's no need to say why
Just promise that you'll try
To give me all you can
I'll never ask for more
There's new life through the door
A cradle rocks and falls
As new fruit fills the tree
Cements the melody
To signify we're free
Our troubles passing

Through decaying
Simple times
I'll tread you're trail with pride
C'est maintenant decide
I've nothing better
Please don't leave me
Wanting more
I hope you never die
There's no need to say why
Just promise that you'll try
