Make Or Break (You Gotta Know)

Somewhere In The Distance

Somewhere In The Distance

You’ve got a lot of nerve
To try and bring me down
Maybe you haven’t heard
That’s not the way we run this town
‘Cause when the times are tough we turn them round

We’ve got a lot to lose
The stakes are staggering
But we don’t choose to use
The brakes that only ground us down
No, when the times are tough we’ll turn them round

So make hay while the sun shines on your face
‘Cause you’re young, but only once
It’s ok, life won’t stop if you make mistakes

Cling onto that sweet, sweet hope
That somewhere in the distance
You know that there must be somebody
Somewhere in the distance

How dare you be so bold
Despite the love we found
To let your blood run cold
In the heat of battle we built this town
‘Cause when the times are tough we’ll turn them round

So make hay while the sun shines on your face
‘Cause you’re young, but only once
It’s ok, life won’t stop if you make mistakes
‘Cause your luck is gonna change

Cling onto that sweet, sweet hope
That somewhere in the distance
You know that there must be somebody
Somebody for you
Somewhere in the distance

‘Cause when the times are tough we turn them round
Somewhere in the distance
(‘Cause when the times are tough we turn them round)
You know that there must be somebody
Somebody for you

Cling onto that sweet, sweet hope
That somewhere in the distance
You know that there must be somebody
They’re just out of view
Somewhere in the distance

Make Or Break (You Gotta Know)

I’m sick and tired of being told I’m an impatient boy
I took the bait and made a beeline for your heart
You left me broken on the floor like a discarded toy
I should’ve known it from the start

My destination is the place where only fools rush in
Too quick to trace the paces of my racing heart
Gung-ho I steal a starring role in your biography
I dreamt I’d graced the pages from the start

You gotta know that every little step I’ll follow
Wherever you may go
I really love you and I would beg or steal or borrow
Just to let you know

You sow a seed I can’t delete, it grew such hope in me
Your sunshine face, your branches wrapped around my soul
Left to neglect, it grew so sweetly wild it’s choking me
How could I ever let it go?

You gotta know that every little step I’ll follow
Wherever you may go
I really love you and I would beg or steal or borrow
Just to let you know

I rolled the dice it was a chance I was prepared to take
Not ever one to think that ignorance was bliss
I took the plunge safe in the knowledge that it was make or break
And either way I know it’s worth the risk

You gotta know that every little step I’ll follow
Wherever you may go
I really love you and I would beg or steal or borrow
Just to let you know

You gotta know these words will make or break my sorrow
Make you stay or make you go
I really love you and even if you’re gone tomorrow
At least I’ll know you know

You gotta slow down, boy
You’ll get another chance tomorrow

Upset

Why you got that gun in your hand
Is there somebody you plan
On pointing it at

Why you got that look in your eye
Like you mean business I try
Talk you out of that

You say I told him not to push me
Said I don’t want to fight
I’m a sensitive heart
Wanting a peaceful life

But you know he wouldn’t listen
And he stepped out of line
Now Nicky made his mistake for the very last time

We don’t have to get upset
But it’s always an option
We could forgive and forget
It’s not always an option

Why you got that tear in your eye
You wear a look of surprise
Do you know what you’ve done

If I said you were an innocent man
With blood on his hands
Would you still try to run

You say I know he had it coming
He brought pressure no peace
And I was Out of choices
And I needed release

But you know he wouldn’t listen
And he stepped out of line
Now Nicky made his mistake for the very last time

Handsome Girls And Pretty Boys

She had a face-lift to keep her chin up
She was forever feeling low
£17.99 from Argos, she had a discount code

He had a Big Ben heart, an only child with a ten-ton aorta
But the pressure, the pressure was enough to oxygenate the moon
His mother wanted a daughter with a face to light up the room

Always chasing the rapture
They beg you to
Clap your hands make a lot of noise
For the handsome girls and the pretty boys
Hungry for adoration
They beg you to
Raise your arms, like you got a choice
They rule this world so we lift our voice
To the handsome girls and the pretty boys

They met in Knightsbridge, but they never hit it off
Their feelings were soft as snow
Bone dry, sawdust filled decanters from Atlanta
They were just for show
They were just for show

Always chasing the rapture
They beg you to clap your hands,
Make a lot of noise
For the handsome girls and the pretty boys
Hungry for adoration
They beg you to raise your arms, like you got a choice
Give in to sin and just rejoice
For the leaders to whom we lift our voice
You’d better clap your hands, make a lot of noise
For the handsome girls and the pretty boys

Weirdo

It’s a miniature explosion from a toy hand grenade
It’s just a scratch I can patch up before it fades
You don’t start for anyone, and you only stop when you’re done
The fire in your belly burns in your eyes

But it’s not a war
It’s just a little conversation
It’s not a war
You’re just a weirdo

It was a misplaced phrase cut short our happy phase
But it’s just a graze not a war wound
And still you sneer at the bright side, and you pile up the sandbags
When you only need look in my eyes

But it’s not a war
It’s just a little conversation
It’s not a war
You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo
You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo
You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo

But it’s not a war
It’s just a little conversation
We’ve been here before
You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo
You’re just a weirdo, a weirdo, a weirdo
I love you my weirdo, my weirdo, my weirdo

It’s not a war
It’s just a little conversation

The News From Nowhere

This is the news from nowhere
The world could end for all I’m aware
We’re all available but no-one cares
We all live and die in nowhere

And no-one will ever know exactly what this means to me
No-one
And no-one will ever know exactly what you do to me
No-one

This is the news from nowhere
I burst into flame for all that you care
These are thoughts of which I’m scared
I caught your eye but couldn’t hold it there

And no-one will ever know exactly what this means to me
No-one
And no-one will ever know exactly what you do to me
No-one

I doubt this means that much to anyone
I hope this means something to you
I doubt this means that much to anyone
I know this means too much to me
I doubt this means that much to anyone
I hope this means something to you

The clock won’t strike in nowhere
We live and die here in nowhere

Fidget Brain

I’m a fidget brain
I’m a fidget brain
In a constant state of disarray

I’m a fidget brain
I’m a fidget brain
In a constant state of disarray

If I could only get some sleep
If I could put my mind at ease
Then finally I’d have some peace

I’m a fidget brain
I’m a fidget brain
In a constant state of disarray

I’m a business man
With a five-year plan
But my fidget brain got in the way

If I could only get some sleep
If I could put my mind at ease
Then finally I’d have some peace

You hit me like a force five quake
You shake me till I’m wide awake
There’s only so much more my mind can take

My Last Fight

If it’s all the same to you
I’ll get going while the going’s good
There’s something I need to do
It’s a good time to be thought ill of

There’s never a right time to leave somebody
So why don’t I just make it now
‘Cause sooner or later I’ll hurt somebody
Why don’t I just make that me

I thought I fought my last fight
I thought I fought my last fight
But there’s always one more round

If it’s all the same to you
I’ll get going while the going’s good
Think it’s time to call it a day
Before the rains wash my resolve away

There’s never a right time to leave somebody
So why don’t I just make it now
‘Cause sooner or later I’ll hurt somebody
Why don’t I just make that me

I thought I fought my last fight
I thought I fought my last fight
I thought I fought my last fight
But there’s always one more round

Rocket Star

Can’t I pretend, make amends
Don’t even know if we are still friends
‘Cause you’re gone, and I’m torn
But there was only space for one
Like you care, unaware
I don’t want you to go anywhere
‘Cause I should be the one up there

Something’s wrong with you
Something’s wrong with you leaving
You were someone who
Someone I could believe in

You’re in a rocket star you’re leaving
Can only catch you when I’m dreaming

When we were young you could see
A world out there beyond you and me
So I looked but I saw
A monster that had you in its jaws
Like you care, unaware
I don’t want you to go anywhere
‘Cause I should be the one up there

Something’s wrong with you
Something’s wrong with you leaving
You were someone who
Someone I could believe in

You’re in a rocket star you’re leaving
Can only catch you when I’m dreaming
You’re in a rocket star don’t leave me behind

To The Lions

Oh my love
Sympathy’s in short supply there’s simply not enough
Lord God above
Scratching at the bones to find my diamond in the rough

Girl, I want you to care
But you fed me to the lions
You fed me to the lions
Oh, I’m black and blue you’ve abandoned me to the lions

Oh my love
So short the claws that scratched at our disintegrating trust
Lord God above
With heavy head between my hands our diamonds turn to dust

Girl, I want you to care
But you fed me to the lions
You fed me to the lions
Oh, what can I do? You’ve abandoned me to the lions

I’m calling a ceasefire
I’m begging you, please sign
My petition for release

Girl, I want you to care
But you fed me to the lions
You fed me to the lions
Oh, what can I do? You’ve abandoned me too

Girl, I’d go anywhere
But you’re casting me in irons, you’re casting me in irons
Oh, I’m black and blue you’ve abandoned me to the lions

Impossible Boy

The teller told an unusual tale
With spider words and webs
To capture all the ears they fell upon
The story of an impossible boy
Who never even knew that he was real

He cast a spell of implausible joy
Armed with only charm
Born of benevolence he waved a wand
Upon a world so consumed with the boy
That never knew even that he was real
