Such a catchy little tune

Lily Allen – Alfie

Tried to find a good video from youtube to post but none of them are very good quality so the lyrics will just have to suffice.

Ooooo deary me,
My little brother’s in his bedroom smoking weed,
I tell him he should get up cos it’s nearly half past three
He can’t be bothered cos he’s high on THC.
I ask him very nicely if he’d like a cup of tea,
I can’t even see him cos his room is so smoky,
Don’t understand how one can watch so much TV,
My baby brother Alfie how I wish that you could see.

Oooooo I only say it cos I care,
So please can you stop pulling my hair.
Now, now there’s no need to swear,
Please don’t despair my dear Mon frere.

Ooooo Alfie get up it’s a brand new day,
I just can’t sit back and watch you waste your life away
You need to get a job because the bills need to get paid.
Get off your lazy arse,
Alfie please use your brain
Surely there’s some walls out there that you can go and spray,
I’m feeling guilty for leading you astray,
Now how the hell do you ever expect that you’ll get laid,
When all you do is stay and play on your computer games?

Oh little brother please refrain from doing that,
I’m trying to help you out so can you stop being a twat.
It’s time that you and I sat down and had a little chat,
And look me in the eyes take off that stupid fitted cap.

Please don’t despair
Please don’t despair
Mon frere

Please don’t let this turn into something it’s not
I can only give you everything I’ve got
I can’t be as sorry as you think I should
But I still love you more than anyone else could

All that I keep thinking throughout this whole flight
Is it could take my whole damn life to make this right
This splintered mast I’m holding on won’t save me long
Because I know fine well that what I did was wrong

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

We have got through so much worse than this before
What’s so different this time that you can’t ignore
You say it is much more than just my last mistake
And we should spend some time apart for both our sakes

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

And I don’t know where to look
My words just break and melt
Please just save me from this darkness [x2]

And I don’t know where to look
My words just break and melt
Please just save me from this darkness

Lyrics of the Day

Sailing through the tunnels
In the morning by yourself
There’s a very special feeling
True sensation, all is well
If you stand and reach your arms out wide
Close your eyes and try to fly
It’s an underground illusion
Tricking you from side to side

We knew all the answers and we
Shouted them like anthems
Anxious and suspicious that God
Knew how much we cheated

It can’t come quickly enough
And now you’ve spent your life
Waiting for this moment
And when you finally saw it come it
Passed you by and left you so defeated

Skyscrapers rise between us
Keeping me from finding you
If the concrete architecture
Disappeared there’d be so few
Of us left to navigate and defend
Ourselves from the tide
It’s an underground illusion
Tricking you from side to side

There’s no indication of what
We were meant to be
Sucking up to strangers throwing
Wishes to the sea

And it can’t come quickly enough
And now you’ve spent your life
Waiting for this moment
And when you finally saw it come it
Passed you by and left you so defeated

Scissor Sisters – It Can’t Come Quickly Enough

You Could Be Happy – Snow Patrol

You could be happy and I won’t know
But you weren’t happy the day I watched you go

And all the things that I wish I had not said
Are played on lips ’til it’s madness in my head

Is it too late to remind you how we were?
But not our last days of silent, screaming blur

Most of what I remember makes me sure
I should have stopped you from walking out the door

You could be happy, I hope you are
You made me happier than I’d been by far

Somehow everything I own smells of you
And for the tiniest moment it’s all not true

Do the things that you always wanted to
Without me there to hold you back, don’t think, just do

More than anything I want to see you go
Take a glorious bite out of the whole world

Chantal Kreviazuk – Wonderful

I’m alone in this life

and these old jeans are too tight

and now I can’t pick my feet off the floor

I try to laugh but I cry

my dignity’s undignified

Guess I’m really on my own

Love is like a little boy

no I’m not paranoid

but I’m on to you yeah yeah

Well I’m not 17

and I don’t want to be

so why am I hiding

Is it too late to call you on the phone?

too late to tell you I’m alone?

I wanna wake you from another lonely night

Too late to wonder where you are

too late to hold you in my arms

Cuz if you’re looking for wonderful, I’m wonderful

But I’m a very simple girl and I don’t fit into this world

The city lights leave me in a daze

And even though we’ve never met

you know what I’m sure to forget

some things you can’t change

I’m underneath, underneath

I’m underneath, I’m underneath

Stop this Train ~ John Mayer

No I’m not color blind
I know the world is black and white
Try to keep an open mind but I just can’t sleep on this tonight
Stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can

But honestly won’t someone stop this train

Don’t know how else to say it, don’t want to see my parents go
One generation’s length away
From fighting life out on my own
Stop this train
I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can but honestly won’t someone stop this train

So afraid of getting older
I’m only good at being young
So I play the numbers game to find away to say that life has just begun
Had a talk with my old man
Said help me understand
He said turn 68, you’ll renegotiate
Don’t stop this train
Don’t for a minute change the place you’re in
Don’t think I couldn’t ever understand
I tried my hand
John, honestly we’ll never stop this train

See once in a while when it’s good
It’ll feel like it should
When they’re all still around
And you’re still safe and sound
And you don’t miss a thing till you cry when you’re driving away in the dark.

Singing stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take this speed it’s moving in
I know I can
Cause now I see I’ll never stop this train

Coffee Spills – Stabilo

Spin round the steering wheel the
Coffee spills but you can’t feel
The dam behind your eyes
Turn off the radio, the news is fake
But you can’t tell who’s
Making up the lies
Waking up to find…
Waking up to find…
You don’t love life

Mary-anne you’re late
I’ve been waiting for you for three days
I’m beginning to be afraid
I’ve been looking out the window

Your smoked cigarette is your slow suicide
And you only speak to pass the time
But time’s been passing you
The days feel like they’re getting shorter
The nights are definitely getting colder
I don’t know what you’re going to do
Waking up to find…
Waking up to find…you don’t love life

Mary-anne you’re late
I’ve been waiting for you for three days
I’m beginning to be afraid
I’ve been looking out the window

And I don’t know how this happened
I remember laughing
At the zombies who had no fun
Now you’ve turned into one
I don’t know if it matters
That we’re hanging from the rafters

Mary-anne you’re late
I’ve been waiting for you for three days
I’m beginning to be afraid
I’ve been looking out the window

I asked you “what do you think you’ll find?”
You said “nothing” but you didn’t mind
“It’s all just smoke and mirrors”
I asked you “where do you think you’ll go?”
You said “Nowhere but at least I know
I’m having trouble holding back the years.”

“Just Like Heaven”

Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream he said
The one that makes me laugh he said
And threw his arms around my neck
Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I’ll run away with you
I’ll run away with you

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed his face and kissed his head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make him glow
Why are you so far away? he said
Why won’t you ever know that I’m in love with you
That I’m in love with you

You, soft and only
You,lost and lonely
You, strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You’re just like a dream
You’re just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe his name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only boy I loved
And drowned him deep inside of me

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

I am predicting another comment from Jacko on this one…something about going back to my roots maybe? 😛

Yeah more lyrics…sorry, I’ve got nothing more to say at the minute.

Tell me if im going crazy,
but everything you said amazed me,
seems too easy on the ear to,
be something I should adhere to.

You told me to just simply wonder,
rather than take shelter under,
and open my heart to the thought that,
life is something you’re not caught at.

Too easy to get lost in progress,
i didn’t see you there in that dress,
then suddenly the world seems so small,
we’d fit it all inside our front hall,
edison would spin in his grave,
to ever see the light that you gave,
don’t want to take it nice and slow here,
don’t want to waste a minute more dear.

The universe just vanished out of sight,
and all the stars collapsed behind the pitch black night,
and i can barely see your face infront of mine,
but it is knowing you are there that makes me fine.

Maybe its the warmer climate,
maybe i’m a smarter primate,
maybe its the beer i’m drinking,
maybe i’ve stopped over thinking,
baby you’re the words and chapters,
the sweetness in the morning after,
you are the cry that turns to laughter,
you’re the hope that ends disaster.

The universe just vanished out of sight,
and all the stars collapsed behind the pitch black night,
and i can barely see your face infront of mine,
but it is knowing you are there that makes me fine.

But the universe is just an empty space,
and all the stars can disappear without a trace,
i’m so glad that this has taken me so long,
coz its the journey that made me so strong.

And this one

“Chasing Cars”

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
