Must I Paint You A Picture? Lyrics
It's bad timing and me
We find a lot of things out this way
And there's you
A little black cloud in a dress
The temptation
To take the precious things we have apart
To see how they work
Must be resisted for they never fit together again

If this is rain let it fall on me and drown me
If these are tears let them fall

Must I paint you a picture
About the way that I feel?
You know my love for you is strong, girl
You know my love for you is real

It took a short walk and a talk
To change the rules of engagement
While you searched frantically for reverse
And them claiming
That virtue never tested is no virtue at all
And so I lost my ignorance
And now the bells across the river chime out your name
I look across to them again

Must I paint you a picture
About the way that I feel?
You know my love for you is strong, girl
You know my love for you is real

All your friends said come down
It will never fly
And on that imperfect day
We threw it all away
Crisis after crisis
With such intensity
This would never happen if we lived by the sea

Most important decisions in life
Are made between two people in bed
I found that out at my expense
And when I see you
You just turn around and walk away like we never met
Oh we used to be so brave

I dreamt the world stopped turning as we climbed the hill
I dreamt impossible dreams that we were lovers still

Must I paint you a picture
About the way that I feel?
You know my love for you is strong, girl
You know my love for you is real
(repeat to end)

Tender Comrade Lyrics
What will you do when the war is over, tender comrade
When we lay down our weary guns
When we return home to our wives and families
And look into the eyes of our sons
What will you say of the bond we had, tender comrade
Will you say that we were brave
As the shells fell all around us
Or that we wept and cried for our mothers
And cursed our fathers
For forgetting that all men are brothers

Will you say that we were heroes
Or that fear of dying among strangers
Tore our innocence and false shame away
And from that moment on deep in my heart i knew
That i would only give my life for love

Brothers in arms in each other arms
Was the only time that i was not afraid
What will you do when the war is over, tender comrade
When we cast off these khaki clothes
And go our separate ways
What will you say of the bond we had
Tender comrade

The Price I Pay Lyrics
my friend said she could see no way
and i was probably better off without you
she said to face up to the fact
that you weren't coming back
and she could make me happy like you used to
but i'm sorry to say i turned her away
knowing everything she said was true
and that's the price i pay for loving you the way that i do
there's something inside that hurts my foolish pride
to visit the places we use to go together
not a day goes by
that i don't sit and wonder why
your feelings for me didn't last forever
but girl i love you so much
that sometimes its such
i'd walk a mile with a stone in my shoe
that's the price i pay for loving you the way that i do
yeah that's the price i pay for loving you the way that i do
so keep that phone out of my way
for the things i might say
are empty and deep down i believe they're true
that's the price i pay for loving you the way that i do
yeah that's the price i pay for loving you the way that i do
girl i love you so much
that baby it's such
i'd walk a mile with a stone in my shoe
and that's the price i pay for loving you the way that i do
yeah that's the price i pay for loving you the way that i do
and that's the price i pay for loving you the way that i do.....

Little Time Bomb Lyrics
One of them's off her foot
And the other one's off his head
And both of them are off down the boozer
To drink a toast
To the one that he hates most
And she says there are no winners, only losers

Well if there are no winners
Then what is this he thinks
As he watches her complete a lap of honour
And he sits in the stands with his head in his hands
And he thinks of all the things
He'd like to bring down upon her

Revenge will bring cold comfort in this darkest hour
As the juke box says 'It's All Over Now'
And he stands and he screams
What have I done wrong
I've fallen in love with a little time bomb

In public he's such a man
He's punching at the walls with his bare and bloody hands
He's screaming and shouting and acting crazy
But at home he sits alone and he cries like a baby

He holds your letters but he can't read them
As he fights this loneliness that you call freedom
You said this would happen and you were not wrong
I've fallen in love with a little time bomb

Life With The Lions Lyrics
I hate the arsehole i become
Every time i'm with you
You know you've got me on the run
But let me make it clear to you
It's taken two fools such as we
To make love deaf, dumb and blind
Now you're upset 'cos i can't read your mind love
You're upset cos i can't read your mind

I hate the arsehole i become
Every time i'm with you
I get the feeling looking in your eyes
That somehow i should forgive you
I know that i'm guilty but i don't know what i've done
You're not about to let me join in the fun are you
You're not about to let me join in the fun

I hate the arsehole i become
Every time i'm with you
I hate the way you try to give me back
All the things i give to you
I know when i leave the room
They say what's up with him
But love is not a game you play to win girl
Love is not a game you play to win

If that face of yours could only talk
The stories it could tell
The chase is always better than the kill, love
The chase is always better than the kill

The Only One Lyrics
Sometimes when you lose your way to me
I think you don't care at all
If you don't get here soon
I'll tear the clock down from the wall
Your family and friends don't understand
They treat me so strange
The book you said to read
Well I have read but nothing's changed

The clocks go forward the clocks go back
Yet here I sit if I was the only one and
Oh you cannot hear me
Oh you cannot hear me
Can anybody hear me out there

He's up on his high horse again
You're down in the park
I'm left to fight my impulses alone here in the dark
The chain that fell off my bike last night
is now wrapped 'round my heart
Sometimes I think that
Fate has been against us from the start

I long to let our love run free,
Yet here I am a victim of geography
And oh you cannot hear me
Oh you cannot hear me
Can anybody hear me out there

She said, kiss me or would you rather
live in a land where the soap won't lather
And oh...
You know you are the only one
Yes you are the only one
Yes you are the only one

Waiting For The Great Leap Forwards Lyrics
It may have been Camelot for Jack and Jacqueline
But on the Che Guevara highway filling up with gasoline
Fidel Castro's brother spies a rich lady who's crying
Over luxury's disappointment
So he walks over and he's trying
To sympathise with her but he thinks that he should warn her
That the Third World is just around the corner

In the Soviet Union a scientist is blinded
By the resumption of nuclear testing and he is reminded
That Dr. Robert Oppenheimer's optimism fell
At the first hurdle

In the Cheese Pavilion and the only noise I hear
Is the sound of someone stacking chairs
And mopping up spilt beer
And someone asking questions and basking in the light
Of the fifteen fame filled minutes of the fanzine writer

Mixing pop and politics he asks me what the use is
I offer him embarrassment and my usual excuses
While looking down the corridor
Out to where the van is waiting
I'm looking for the great leap forwards

Jumble sales are organised
And pamphlets have been posted
Even after closing time there's still parties to be hosted
You can be active with the activists
Or sleep in with the sleepers
While you're waiting for the great leap forwards

One leap forward, two leaps back
Will politics get me the sack?

Here comes the future and you can't run from it
If you've got a blacklist I want to be on it

It's a mighty long way down rock 'n roll
From Top of the Pops to drawing the dole

If no one seems to understand
Start your own revolution and cut out the middleman

In a perfect world we'd all sing in tune
But this is reality so give me some room

So join the struggle while you may
The revolution is just a tee shirt away
Waiting for the great leap forwards
