Too much to sing for one song, Too much to sing for one song. Too much to sing for one song, Be singing for a long long time. Too much to do for one life, Too much to do for one life, Too much to do for one life, Gonna be here a long long time. And it's a long time coming It's a long time gone, It's a long time singing On my long time song, It's a long time walking It's a long time running, It's a long long long long Long time coming... Too much to learn for one head Too much to learn for one head Too much to learn for one head Gonna be in school a long long time. Too much information, Too much information, Too much information, Be parsing it a long long time. And it's a long time coming... (etc)

Drinking on my own again, Drinking on my own again. Met a girl few months ago, But now she doesn't want to know I'm drinking on my own again. Drinking on my own again, Drinking on my own again. Met a girl on Sunday, But she threw me out on Monday, Now I'm drinking on my own again. Drinking on my own again, Drinking on my own again. I met a friend indeed, Bought a little bag of weed, Now I'm smoking on my own again. Smoking on my own again, Smoking on my own again. Didn't meet no-one, But I'm having lots of fun, I'm smoking on my own again. Drinking on my own again, Drinking on my own again. I guess I've no excuse, I'm just addicted to the juice, And I'm drinking... On my own... Again.

Fleeting meeting, texted greeting, Each reply sets my heart beating Knowing flowing, to and froing And who knows where this is going Still you woke, you woke in me a part I thought had died babe, Bless your heart... Late night dances, taking chances Warnings, no great romances Prize fixed eyes, in the skies, A star exploded in your eyes. Still you woke... (etc)

Been a lost soul ever since I was born All I know how to do is to weep and mourn Nothing to weep for, nothing to mourn for Nothing to live for, nothing to die for Too many people, not enough soul to go around Too many people, not enough soul... Here's a lost soul, out on the streets, All he knows how to do is to beg so he can eat Used to know more but they won't let him use it Out there on the streets is he going to lose it? Too many people... You can sell your body You can sell your mind If you find a buyer Whose got the time But don't sell your soul...

You were the most irresistable object The immovable force in me ever knew Short-skirted rich bitch, Cold-hearted predator Sad, that's what attracted me to you But all we ever did was fuck and argue Most ill-suited couple anybody knew All we ever did was fuck and argue You said you loved me and I said I loved you But you stopped loving me when I stopped arguing Took about two years until you knew Meanwhile it got just physical And I was so depressed It was so damn lonely then, loving you, When all we ever did was fuck and not argue I tried to talk but it didn't interest you All we ever did was fuck and not argue Till the night you said you loved me still But we were through... Oooh, how could those things both me true Dicky down down down Oooh, it was only one of the two Dicky down down down.

If it's a game, why don't you play it Feels the same, why don't you say it Such a shame, you feel the way you do You take no blame and no-one touches you You can't lose what you never had You can't choose your mum and dad, Talking about me, talking about you But you don't listen, you never do What you want to do. Oooh, well I'm going to... Run away, never coming back, That's what I say, when everything turns black, Well what a shame, you feel the way you do, You take no blame, no-one touches you... You can't lose etc...

You could be my woman Honey I could be your man But if you don't clean those dishes I ain't going near that pan, I'll take you for a ride, Anywhere you wish Take you home, I'll clean your fridge. Cause they call me Mr Clean, babe, Cleaning is my game. Let me have that sponge I'll get it shining white again, I'll take you for a ride... If your fridge is getting moldy You know that ain't right at all Pretty soon you'll have no way Of keeping your food fresh and cool, I'll take you for a ride...

Modem working, modem working, Modem working but it just don't work on you Ba-be-ba-be-boo-de-bah etc. Boo-hoo. Going to dial my connection baby, log into my ISP Dial my connection, log into my ISP Wanna see if any female has left any email for me I got a helpdesk woman giving me advice Helpdesk woman, give me some advice Talking about the interrupt conflict on my null device, (Didn't understand a word...) Geek out... Telnet window, tell me what to do Telnet window. Tell me what to do. Going to tell that telnet window I've got something I would rather tell you. About my modem... Modem working, Modem working but... (etc)

Don't want to hassle you, know you are busy, Have little time for the mundane and petty, But I left a blue and grey scarf at your place I was hoping it might be returned by your grace I don't want to call while I feel you would rather I didn't. And all of the things that in some other World I might have pursued for your sake I abjure. I'd still really like that scarf back though... Oooh, ooh ooh oooh, a la recherche de l'echarpe perdu Oooh, ooh ooh oooh, a la recherche de l'echarpe perdu Sent you these verses by SMS message, A medium we're still defining by usage, Reflecting that if you had not thought before I'm a weirdo, you'd be thinking that now. Oh have the damn scarf, my ex gave it to me, I am not over her yet though I should be, I'll meet somebody who'll make me forget About old blue grey scarves and the love therein trapped... Chorus

My life is like a race between the alcohol and nicotine To see which of the two will be the one that kills me Wasted dreams and broken hearts, drawn out endings and false starts Pretending there is still a part which still fulfils me Then I met you late one night, your smile shone with blinding light And I'm still dazzled by the sight of what you showed me If it's not too late for me to live less self-destructively Turn myself around and be the man I should be You make me want to be together again Like I used to be, before I slipped and fell to pieces You make me want to be together again Like I used to be, long ago I know it's not fair on you to pick you out as someone who Could stop these stupid things I do with just a smile. I know I'm just some guy you met one night and you don't know me yet And maybe we'll never get together in the end, still... You make me want to be together... (etc)

When the freezeframe shutters come crashing down, And the stars all shine in the frozen ground, And the ice shot through me just drips away, And the drips disappear through the cracks in the clay Now I'm lost without hope in the forest of dreams, And my whole bag of tricks just came apart at the seams, And I think that I can make it but I don't know why, And I shake my fist at the mote in my eye.

Storm's over, rain gone. Storm's over, rain gone. Storm's over now. I'm on my way home. Raging storm is over, Wind has ceased to moan, The rain has stopped, the penny's dropped And I'm on my way home, All rain gone. Storm's over now. On my way home. I feel the summer coming. I feel it in my bones. Feel that summer coming On my way home. All rain gone. Storm's over now. On my way home.
