Well I've been sending out antenae Trying to get my feelers felt Trying to gauge the current temperature Before I start to melt Looking for a cool place Somewhere in the shade Gotta get me out this heat Then I'll have it made But theres no time to lose No word was received today Been no word for a while Just screaming in the park at night And broken glass for miles Flowers in the window Rats beneath the floor Man who comes to pound and pound On my door But theres no time to lose Sleepless nights Living on my uppers Too long spent Sinning for my supper

There's been no trouble like mine No trouble like mine I hear sob stories All the time But theres no trouble like mine There's been no heartache like mine No heartache like mine I've a sympathetic ear for others From time to time But theres no heartache like mine

Wait for tomorrow Things will be O.K I know its just a sad cliche But love is on its way Wait

I'm seek of hearing the same recycled riff First heard in the playground I'm seek of players with turned up noses Getting off on rock star poses I dont mind what they play There must be another way Just want some English Music I,m seek of players from Clapham Common Making like they come from Dallas Let,s have a little honesty right here Give it to me straight and pure please

You were the apple of my eye But the core that told me lies Has left me with a bitter taste I cried when you threw me out the door But I just cant cry no more You're the kind of girl I just dont need All I want to do Is forget you Sometimes when the rules are being bent Frustrations they will vent And we both crossed that line at times We two Just as people often do Fluffed our lines and missed our cue's Now all thats left is bitter tears All I want to do Is forget you

I'm so tired Of feeling tired It's so hard To get wired The hot pace I cannot face The harsh truth I can't use I know it's easy With your head in the sand But I'm faceing my problems As nature demands It's alright It's O.K To act your age Sometimes It's required Act your age Right now Am I washed out Or washed up Is this a half full Or empty cup I'm shaken But not stirred 'Cos time has The last word

Every day I fantasize About a different kind of life One in which I do not toil And nothing's there to make my blood boil Checking out my bank account And counting out the large amounts I'd have my homes There in Paris and London With a view of the Seine And a bend in the Thames I'd have my homes There in Paris and London Icould fell so alive Making paradice mine Every day I'd rise at ten And go about my business doing nothing I would wander in my lazy style And maybe walk for miles and miles and miles Even though it isn't fair I'd live a life without a care Cobblestones and cafe bars Galleries for object'd'art Weekends spent in Monaco Or Aspen,Colorado for the snow Learn to live with my affliction Learn to deal with my addictions

Sitting here in The morning sun I've been wasting my time For far to long The sun is up The day is new The snapper await me In the blue Aotearoa This heart was made for you Aotearoa Theres nothing I want More to do Than to spend my whole life Right here with you You gotta get out while you're young To Aotearoa sun Aotearoa,Aotearoa,Aotearoa Sun Aotearoa,Aotearoa,Aotearoa Sun You are all I ever want The hills that rise Above the sand Indelibly mark The minds of men The silver arc The swaying palm The crystaline stars Will work thier charms Sitting here by The chimenea Just warming my toes And sipping beer Stories told And friendships won To the accompaniement of The rollers hum

The doctors mouth wore a crinkled grin Like muscle just introduced to skin THe nursed flapped as they ushered you in Prepare yourself for some news so grim Well in his mental state It must debilitate We're looking for signs of life We've done all we can Now it's in God"s hands Show me some signs of life The chaplain turned his offended eye From the graffitti up to the sky As he surveyed the urban decay He found he did not know who to blame Well if my good book's right I'll read again tonight Show me some signs of life I've done all I can Now it's in God's hands Show me some signs of life The teacher cocked her disgusted ear From language she would not choose to hear It brings new meaning to child abuse You get no change from a misspent youth If they're like it at ten What can the future bring Show me some signs of life I've done all I can Now it's in God's hands Show me some signs of life
