Life In Cartoon Motion

Grace Kelly

I want to talk to you
The last time we talked, Mr Smith
You reduced me to tears.
I promise you that won’t happen again.

Do I attract you?
Do I repulse you with my queasy smile?
Am I too dirty?
Am I too flirty?
Do I like what you like?

I could be wholesome
I could be loathsome
I guess I’m a little bit shy
Why don’t you like me?
Why don’t you like me without making me try?

I try to be like, Grace Kelly
But all her looks were too sad
So I try a little Freddie
I’ve gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don’t you like me?
Why don’t you like me?
Why don’t you walk out the door!

Getting angry doesn’t solve anything

How can I help it
How can I help it
How can I help what you think?
Hello my baby
Hello my baby
Putting my life on the brink
Why don’t you like me
Why don’t you like me
Why don’t you like yourself?
Should I bend over?
Should I look older just to be put on the shelf?

I try to be like, Grace Kelly
But all her looks were too sad
So I try a little Freddie
I’ve gone identity mad!

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be…

Lollipop

Hey, what’s the big idea?
Yo, Mika
I said sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down
I said sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down

Sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down
I said sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down

Say love, Say love
Oh love’s gonna get you down
Say love, Say love
Oh love’s gonna get you down

I went walking with my mamma one day
When she warned me what people say
“Live your life until love is found,
Cuz love’s gonna get you down”

“Take a look at the girl next door,
She’s a player and a downright bore
Jesus love’s her, but she wants more
Oh bad girls get you down”
Sing it!

Sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down
Sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down
Say love
Say love
Oh love’s gonna get you down

Mamma told me what I should know
Too much candy gonna rot your soul
If she loves you let her go!
Cuz love only gets you down

Now take a look at a boy like me
Never stood on my own two feet
Now I’m blue as I can be
Oh love, come get me down!
Sing it!

Sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down
Sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down
Say love
Say love
Oh love’s gonna get you down

I went walking with my mamma one day
When she warned me what people say
“Live your life until love is found,
Or love’s gonna get you down”
Sing it!

Sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down
Sucking too hard on your lollipop
Oh love’s gonna get you down
Say love
Say love
Oh love’s gonna get you down

Mamma told me what I should know
Too much candy gonna rot your soul
If she loves you let her go!
Cuz love only gets you down

My Interpretation

You talk about life and talk about death
And everything in between, like it’s nothing
And the words are easy
You talk about me, you talk about you
And everything I do
Like it’s something that needs repeating

I don’t need an alibi
Or for you to realise
The things we left unsaid
Are only taking space up in our heads
Make it my fault, win the game
Point the finger, place the blame
And curse me up and down
It doesn’t matter now

Cuz I don’t care if I ever talk to you again
This is not about emotion
I don’t need a reason
Not to care what you say
Or what happened in the end
This is my interpretation
And it don’t make sense

The first two weeks turn into ten
I hold my breath and wonder when it will happen
Does it really matter?
If half of what you said is true,
And half of what I didn’t do could be different,
Would it make it better?

If we forget the things we know
Would we have somewhere to go?
The only way is down
I can see that now

Cuz I don’t care if I ever talk to you again
This is not about emotion
I don’t need a reason
Not to care what you say
Or what happened in the end
This is my interpretation
And it don’t make sense

It’s really not such a sacrifice

If I never talk to you again
This is not about emotion
I don’t need a reason…

Love Today

I’ve been crying for so long
Fighting tears just to carry on
But now, but now it’s gone away

Hey girl, why can’t you carry on?
Is it cuz you’re just like your mother?
A little tight, like to tease for fun
Well you ain’t gonna tease no other
Gonna make you a lover!

Everybody’s gonna love today!
Anyway you want to
Anyway you’ve got to
Love, love me
Girl in the blue with the big bust on
Wait till your mamma and your papa’s gone
Papa’s gone!
Mamma, mamma, papa
Shock, shock me

Everybody’s gonna love today!
Anyway you want to
Anyway you’ve got to
Love, love me

Carolina sits on ‘95
Give her a dollar and she’ll make you smile
Hook her, book her, nook her
Walk away!

Girl dresses like a kid for fun
Licks her lips like they’re something other
Tries to tell you life has just begun
Now you know she’s getting something other
Than the love from her mother!

Everybody’s gonna love today!
Anyway you want to
Anyway you’ve got to
Love, love me
Girl in the blue with the big bust on
Wait till your mamma and your papa’s gone
Papa’s gone!
Mamma, mamma, papa
Shock, shock me

Everybody’s gonna love today!
Anyway you want to
Anyway you’ve got to
Love, love me

Relax, Take It Easy

Took a ride
To the end of the line
Where no one ever goes
Ended up on a broken train
With nobody I know

But the pain
And the longing’s the same when you’re dying
Now I’m lost
And I’m screaming for help on my own

Relax, take it easy
For there is nothing that we can do
Relax, take it easy
Blame it on me or blame it on you

It’s as if I’m scared
It’s as if I’m terrified
It’s as if I’m scared
It’s as if we’re playing with fire

Oh, there is an answer to the darkest times
It’s clear we don’t understand it
But the last thing on my mind
Is to leave you
I believe that we’re in this together
Don’t scream
There are so many roads left to run

Relax, take it easy
For there is nothing that we can do
Relax, take it easy
Blame it on me or blame it on you

It’s as if I’m scared
It’s as if I’m terrified
It’s as if I’m scared
It’s as if we’re playing with fire

Any Other World

In any other world
You could tell the difference
And let it all unfurl
Into broken remnants

Smile like you mean it
And let yourself go

Cuz it’s all in the hands
Of a bitter, bitter man
Say goodbye
To the world you thought you lived in
Take a bow, play the part
Of a lonely, lonely heart
Say goodbye
To the world you thought you lived in

I tried to live alone
But lonely is so lonely alone
So human as I am
I had to give up my defences

So I smiled and tried to mean it
To let myself let go

Cuz it’s all in the hands
Of a bitter, bitter man
Say goodbye
To the world you thought you lived in
Take a bow, play the part
Of a lonely, lonely heart
Say goodbye
To the world you thought you lived in

Billy Brown

Oh Billy Brown had lived an ordinary life
Two kids, a dog and a cautionary wife
While it was all going accordingly to plan
Then Billy Brown fell in love with another man

He met his lover almost every single day
Making excuses for his dodgy holiday
On some religion that he said he’d newly found
They didn’t know that his faith was earthly bound

Brown, oh Billy Brown!
Don’t let the stars get you down
Don’t let the waves let you drown
Brown, oh Billy Brown!
Gonna pick you up like a paper cup
Gonna shake the water out of every nook
Oh Billy Brown!

Oh Billy brown needed a place, somewhere to go
He found an island off the coast of Mexico
Leaving his lover and his family behind
Oh Billy Brown needed to find some peace of mind

Then on his journey and his travels on the way
He met a girly who was brave enough to say…
When they made love, he shared the burden of his mind
“Oh, Billy Brown, you are a victim of the times”

Brown, oh Billy Brown!
Don’t let the stars get you down
Don’t let the waves let you drown
Brown, oh Billy Brown!
Gonna pick you up like a paper cup
Gonna shake the water out of every nook
Oh Billy Brown!

Oh Billy Brown had lived an ordinary life
Two kids, a dog and a cautionary wife
While it was all going accordingly to plan
Then Billy Brown fell in love with another man

Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)

Big Girl you are beautiful.

Walks into the room
Feels like a big balloon
I said, “Hey girl you are beautiful”
“Diet coke and a pizza please”
Diet coke! I’m on my knees
Screaming “Big girl you are beautiful!”

You take your skinny girls
I feel like I’m gonna die
Cuz a, real woman
Needs a real man
Here’s why;
You take your girl
And multiply her by four
That’s a whole lot a woman
Who needs a whole lot more

Get yourself to the Butterfly Lounge
Find yourself a big lady
Big boy come on round
And they’ll be calling you ‘baby’
No need to fantasize
Since I was in my braces
Of a watering hole where the girls are round
And curves in all the right places.

Big Girl You Are Beautiful!
Big Girl You Are Beautiful!

Stuck In The Middle

I sit and think about the day that you’re going to die
Your wrinkled eyes betray the joy with which you smile
Care to see my reasons?
Care to put your world in mine?

Looking at life from the perspective of a boy
Who’s learned to love you
But has also learned to grow
Could we make it better?
Stormy weather is so hard to know

Ah ah ah, is there anybody home
Who will believe me
Won’t deceive me
Won’t try to change me?
Ah ah ah , is there anybody home
Who wants to have me
Just to love me?
Stuck in the middle

I look at you, you look at me, we bite each other
And with your bitter words you kick me in the gutter
But my troops are bigger than yours
You’ll never stand my fight

Ours is a family that’s based upon tradition
But with my careless words I tread upon your vision
Are five kids better than one,
Who doesn’t lie to become?

Ah ah ah, is there anybody home
Who will believe me
Won’t deceive me
Won’t try to change me?
Ah ah ah, is there anybody home
Who wants to have me
Just to love me?
Stuck in the middle

This is just who I am
This ain’t a greater plan
To break your heart over me
I know that what I’ve started
Means that when we have parted
I can live in honesty

Ah ah ah, is there anybody home
Who will believe me…

Happy Ending

This is the way you left me
I’m not pretending
No hope, no love, no glory
No happy ending
This is the way that we love
Like it’s forever
Then live the rest of our life
But not together

Wake up in the morning
Stumble out my eyes
Can’t get no love without sacrifice
If anything should happen
I guess I’d wish you well
A little bit of heaven
But a little bit of hell

This is the hardest story
That I have ever told
No hope, no love, no glory
Happy endings, gone forever more

I feel as if I’m wasted
And I’m wasting every day

This is the way you left me
I’m not pretending
No hope, no love, no glory
No happy ending
This is the way that we love
Like it’s forever
Then live the rest of our life
But not together

Two o’clock in the morning
Something’s on my mind
Can’t get no rest
Keep walking around
If I pretend that nothing ever went wrong
I could get to my sleep
I could think that we just carried on

This is the hardest story
That I have ever told
No hope, no love, no glory
Happy endings, gone forever more

I feel as if I’m wasted
I’m wasting every day

This is the way you left me
I’m not pretending…

Over My Shoulder

Over my shoulder
Running away
Feels like I’m falling
Loosing my day
Cold
Dry
Cold and dry

Fork out my daylight
Torture my night
Feels like I’m falling
Far out of sight
Cold
Drunk
Cold and drunk

Ring Ring

I was sitting on the fence
And I thought that I would kiss you
I never thought that I would miss you
But you never let me fall
Push my back against the wall
Every time you call you get so emotional
I’m freaking out

Ring Ring
Is that you on the phone?
You think you’re clever
But you’re never saying nothing at all
Hey Hey
The way you spin me around
You make me dizzy
When you play me like a kid with a crown

You’ve got a dangerous obsession
Now I’m in need of some protection
That was never my intention
Used to love me now you hate me
Say I drove you crazy
Well if I did, you made me
Won’t somebody save me
From you now!

Ring Ring
Is that you on the phone?
You think you’re clever
But you’re never saying nothing at all
Hey Hey
The way you spin me around
You make me dizzy
When you play me like a kid with a crown

It’s what I wanted
Until you blasted it

Why can’t you leave me alone?
Hang up the phone just let me go!

Ring Ring
Is that you on the phone?
You think you’re clever
But you’re never saying nothing at all
Hey Hey…
