Lyrics

Whiskey with Sioux

One day, when I found you,
Whiskey in the tumbler,
Fire burned within you.
We promised us each other,
That we would always be true.

Some day, I will find you,
Though you went away from me,
I can still remember.
Summer turns to winter,
And I will not forget you.

Coming Home

The enemy is at the front gate.
We go to drive them from the field.
The hallowed ground rises to meet this,
Happy few.

And we’re not coming here to praise him,
We’re not in this to please ya, but to bury Caesar.
In each and every land
Delivered by this hand
Kick em out.
Kick about.

Do it, I’ll never slow you down,
But I will hold you to it.
Welcome to your dream!
And if you show it,
You’re gonna take a stand,
Forever and you know it.
Get up on your feet.

Is this the tide that raises all men,
With every contribution made?
So bend your heart and loose the arrow,
Comin home!!
Comin home!!

The way is not for misadventure,
The crooked road will one day, turn the corner straighter.
And not for love of gold,
Or borrowed tales of old.
Comin home!!
Comin home!!

Do it, I’ll never slow you down,
But I will hold you to it.
Welcome to your dream.
And if you show it,
You’re gonna take a stand,
Forever and you know it.
Get up on your feet.

Time for us to walk.
Try keep up, cos I’m movin over, I’m movin, I’m movin over.

Try keep up, cos I’m movin over, I’m movin, I’m movin over.
Comin home!!
Comin home!!
Comin home!!
Comin home!!

Do it, I’ll never slow you down,
But I will hold you to it.
Welcome to your dream.
And if you show it,
You’re gonna take a stand,
Forever and you know it.
Get up on your feet.
Get up on your feet.
Get up on your feet.

Beating Heart of England

I’d hit it!!

Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
And I say,
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
And I say.

I tell you what,
How times change.
I feel so high.
Out about in the street,
I raise my hands and touch the sky.
But I’ve been down,
I’ve been so low,
Twenty five years in the snow.
But I know that I won’t fall in line,
Cos I know that I ain’t no God-damn domino.
This heart beats for you,
With every footstep closer to,
I want to be with you, every day,
And in the dark I want some company.
Every time I went to that bridge,
shall I go? Eh?…ahh no!
I said goodbye cruel world,

And hello beautiful.
Hello beautiful.

I beg to differ,
If I may be so bold.
There is a future,
In England’s dreaming.

Comin a getcha
Comin a getcha
Comin a getcha
In that big Old Smoke.
Comin a getcha
Comin a getcha
Comin a getcha

If I can’t be with you,
I’m like this,
I know that I’m finished, dead, through.
Walkin a broken lonely road.
Cos I know that I’m in love with you.
Look I’m wearing odd socks,
But if I pulled them up,
Would you get your rocks off with me,
On the dance floor
To the tune of the read white and blue.
To the tune of the read white and blue.

From that Fair Isle,
Was plucked a rose.
Forever in this field,
She grows…in the beating heart of England.

Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
And I say,
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
Brothers and sisters
Nana nana nana nana
And I say…in the beating heart of England.

Woozy Suzi she is my,
…well I won’t say floozy,
But this time,
I know it’s for real,
I know it’s true.
It’s hap-hap-happenin!
And when you see I’m for real,
In my pursuit of you,
Day after day, in your time.
I love the things that you do to,
That you do to,
That you do to me.

I love the things that you do to,
That you to,
That you do to me.

I love the things that you do to,
That you do to,
That you do to me.

Dear boy, when you’re grown,
Be sure to dance the dance of life
With all your….

So let me introduce to the boys:
Super-Heavy Black, Manchester East-Side.
Last thirty years, on lead guitar,
And now you know we’re cooking on Gaz.
And here is Nat the hostess with the mostess,
Just so you know, she don’t like to boast this.
Mr Green-how does he do this?
Through thick and thin in my darkest moments.
And to prove the pen is mightier than the sword,
On the refrain,
Her Majesty’s soldier,
Lysons to kill.
We’re only getting older.

In the beating heart of England.

Waterfall

We’ve had our troubled times.
Some day we’ll find it.
One life,
Spread your wings.
One life, one life in the end.

Seems to say so much,
But doesn’t do, doesn’t do enough.

In spite of you I ride the waterfall
Remind me, cos I don’t remember.
I’ve hated, but now I get the plan,
It only, needs a reason.

There is a reason,
In spite of everything.
So please remind me.
I don’t remember.
Now I get the plan.
Ride the waterfall,
Ride the waterfall,
Ride the Waterfall.

Farewell fair weather friends,
Looks like we traded.
Well who wins in the end?
Who wins, who wins, in the end?

Seems to say so much,
But doesn’t do, doesn’t do enough.

In spite of you I ride the waterfall
Remind me, cos I don’t remember.
I’ve hated, but now I get the plan,
It only, needs a reason.

There is a reason,
In spite of everything.
So please remind me.
I don’t remember.
Now I get the plan.
Ride the waterfall,
Ride the waterfall,
Ride the Waterfall.

There is a reason
In spite of everything.
So please remind me
I don’t remember
Now I get the plan.
Ride the waterfall,
Ride the waterfall,
Ride the waterfall.

One Eye on the Sunshine.

Falling on my face my face again
Tryin to get with you.
Chasing after fantasies.
It get’s me through.

The feelings in my head keep spinning round.
And I don’t ever dream I’m comin down.
You got me going blind.

Give a little sunshine,
What you do and what you say.
All I wanna do.
Give a little sunshine,
You give to me everyday.
When I see you.

The feelings in my head keep spinning round.
And I don’t ever dream I’m comin down.
You got me going blind.

Give me little peaches,
And I’m giving cream…of Manchester.
Dirty situations.
What you plan for me.

The feelings in my head keep spinning round.
And I don’t ever dream I’m comin down.
You got me going blind.

Give a little sunshine,
What you do and what you say.
All I wanna do.
Give a little sunshine,
You give to me everyday.
When I see you.

The feelings in my head keep spinning round.
And I don’t ever dream I’m comin down.
You got me going blind.

What you do and what you say you give to me everyday.
What you do and what you say you give to me everyday.

Remember

For all them days, was it just a phase?
And I can’t feel that way again.
When children played and plans were made.
Don’t you chase your dreams away.

If I could only get back.
If I knew which way to turn.
All we do is look back.
Is there something we could learn?

Remember the days, are they through?
Remember the days I lived for you?
Remember the days I said I do?
Never get them back, never get them back, never get them back
With you.

Remember the days, we danced in the rain?
Never be the same again.
When plans were made and seasons changed,
Looks like we threw it all away.

If I could only get back.
If I knew which way to turn.
All we do is look back.
Is there something we could learn?

Remember the days, are they through?
Remember the days I lived for you?
Remember the days I said I do?
Never get them back, never get tham back, never get them back

With you.

With you, with you…etc

This Life

I can see the lights,
Of a thousand stars tonight.
Like a party dress.
Can you hear the taxi horns out west?

The wind it blows from the street.
It feels just like,
You’re lying next to me.
strange the memories.
Stranger now than fiction though it is.

The world is cold I know.
Into it, each of us must go.
And I have paid the price,
For loving this life that I have known.

You could be fortunate,
But corner me then you’ll see how far you get.
I am stronger now.
Stronger now,
We’re at the after show.

The world is cold I know.
Into it, each of us must go.
And I have paid the price,
For loving this life that I have known.

The world is cold I know.
Into it, each of us must go.
And I have paid the price,
For loving this life that I have known

Have known…
Have known…
Have known…

Something

I see something,
That I never thought,
Would ever happen.
When all the people,
Shout with one voice.

There goes the rain again,
One more time.
There goes the rain again,
Don’t feel too sad.
There goes the rain again,
one more time.
I can feel the sun,
I can feel the sun on my back.

I’m gonna be here,
Standing by your side,
Standing in the street.
And holding candles,
Holding them to rights.

There goes the rain again,
One more time.

There goes the rain again,
Don’t feel too sad.
There goes the rain again,
One more time.
I can feel the sun,
I can feel the sun on my back.

Do do doo, do do, do-oo-ooo
Do do doo, do doo-oo-oo-oo …

There goes the rain again,
One more time.
There goes the rain again,
Don’t feel too sad.
There goes the rain again,
One more time.
I can feel the sun,
I can feel the sun on my back.

Smoking Gun

When we were young,
We wrote three words
Graffitied it “I was here”.
The rusting doors, the peeling walls,
The pages of the world.

The smoking gun,
The drinking games,
Our two fingers to everyone.
The future held, between our lips,
Our present left to them.

And part of me,
Is trapped within,
A labyrinth that documents,
A paper-chase of references,
That keep me in my place.

And you, and I
Curators of the past.
And us and them,
It never would have lasted.
And those three words,
Oh I was there.
Was that my friend,
Our finest hour?
Was that my friend,
Our finest hour?
And in the end,
God only knows.

Angel

Angel in the tenements.
Drunk by the sea.
You’re on the beach in the rain.

I know that I come on strong,
But that’s just me,
Better go call 911.
Hurry!

Red cranky bear,
I love the way you,
Talk down to me,
From your big fat head.

So yeh I’m gonna put it out.
Go call off the feds.
It’s meant to say I’m not obsessed.
Is that crazy or what?
I’m sure you’ll agree.
Hope you see the funny side.
Sorry.

Red cranky bear,
I love the way you,
Talk down to me,
From your big fat head.

Kingdom Come

Would be true for you,
With your eyes so blue.
You remember me, please,
When the bomb has broken.
All my days with you,
Not a word was spoken.
I forget,
Happiness was with us would you say?

Oh oh ohhh…

We light up like a million suns.

Me and you, to be,
Tell me who is dreaming?
I the butterfly,
And you my arrow so true.
So I’ll stay a while,
Praying in the garden,
For the plane so high to fly
And go back home to be with you.

And from this day,
I join the fray,
And pledge my word to find a way,
To make this world a better place.
So bring my sword from behind the throne.
For the innocents, the angels cry,
And brothers lost, and good men die.
And they tell us that we all must wait,
For Kingdom Come, for Kingdom Come.

Would be true for you,
With your eyes so blue.
You remember me, please,
When the bomb has broken.
All my days with you,
Not a word was spoken.
I forget,
Happiness was with us would you say?

Oh oh ohhh…

We light up like a million suns.

Me and you, to be,
Tell me who is dreaming?
I the butterfly,
And you my arrow so true.
So I’ll stay a while,
Praying in the garden,
For the plane so high to fly,
And go back home to be with you.

And from this day,
I join the fray,
And pledge my word to find a way,
To make this world a better place.
So bring my sword from behind the throne.
For the innocents the angels cry
And brothers lost, and good men die
But they tell us that we all must wait
For Kingdom Come, for Kingdom Come.

Now I’m gone from me,
And the floor need sweeping,
Make the family that we always wanted.
No regrets for me,
I want you so happy,
Run into the world and tell,
And tell me all about it when we meet.

One Two Three

Me and My Lady

Live by the sea,
And we go swim in our lazy,
Water in the bay.

Here on the white sands,
All of our friends they like to,
Visit us daily,
For a taste of this.

Will you take this hand and say I do,
Can’t you see that I’m in love with you?
Every day I’ll send you souvenirs.
Tokens of my love down through the years, the years, the years.

Da dadada da da dadada
Da dadada da da dadada

A One, a two, a one, two, three,
It all adds up, exactly.
One, a two, a one, two, three.
One and two and three make it swing.
One, a two, a one,two, three,
You, and me, and that makes…
A one, a two, a one,two, three.

For me and my lady.

Living is simple,
Simple things are free,
Like people smiling when we say,
What is mine is mine.

Run away with me into the sun,
Just the three of us, our caravan.
There’s a beach for us, we know it well,
Where the dunes beseech our love to tell, to tell, to tell.

Da dadada da da dadada
Da dadada da da dadada

One, a two, a one, two, three,
It all makes sense,
It’s so easy.
One, a two, a one, two, three,
One a two, a one, two, three,
A one, a two, want to be,
Truly madly, deeply.
A one, a two, a one,two,three.

For me and my lady.

Sexy, sexy. hmm.
I can see that look,
That look in your eye.
Don’t pretend that your shy,
I see you looking at me all night!
All night.

Come on baby, I will take it,
We don’t fake it, gonna make it,
They’re gonna make a play.
They’re gonna talk but you know they couldn’t do it.
They couldn’t do,
What I can do.
Chase ya, I love to chase ya,
I’m gonna catch ya and then I’m gonna prove it.
I’m gonna chase it.
I’m gonna taste it.
We got it.
I’m gonna be with you.

There are still places,
To uncover yet,
Inside our conches we whisper,
Sexy star fish breaths.

Memories like jetsam in the tide,
Of another life we left behind.
Do they think we’re crazy?, yes we know,
But we think maybe we like to go, to go…slow.

Da dadada da da dadada
Da dadada da da dadada

Slow…
Whatya gonna do?
Whatya gonna do Suzi Sue?
We like to go slow.
slow?
Slow…
Like to go, to go to go…

One, a two, a one, two, three,
Me and you I want to be,
Don’t want no four,
Don’t want no five,
Don’t want no catch no fish alive.
You and me and Roko three,
One a two a one, two, three,
You and me and that makes…you tell me!
One a two a one,two,three,
Uno, dos, tres, go guapo!
Can’t you see?
Oh can’t you see?
I know it.
True story!
One, two, one two, one two
Go a round with you,
Ouch!..that didn’t hurt…
bah bah bada-bah
