MANIC STREET PREACHERS lyrics - Forever Delayed

Motown Junk

Original and similar lyrics
Never ever wanted to be with you All you ever gave me was the boredom I suffocate in Adrift in cheap dreams don't stop the rain Numbed out in piss towns just wanna dig their graves Motown, Motown Junk I laughed when Lennon got shot 21 years of living and nothing means anything to me Motown Junk a lifetime of slavery Songs of love echo underclass betrayal Stops your heart beating for 168 seconds Stops your brain thinking for 168 seconds Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk I don't want cos I just get All your slut heroes offer is a fear of the future Past made useless cos I'm dying now Communal tyranny a jail that bleeds our wrists Motown, Motown Junk I laughed when Lennon got shot 21 years of living and nothing means anything to me Motown Junk a lifetime of slavery Songs of love echo underclass betrayal Stops your heart beating for 168 seconds Stops your brain thinking for 168 seconds Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk Motown Junk a lifetime of slavery Songs of love echo underclass betrayal Stops your heart beating for 168 seconds Stops your brain thinking for 168 seconds Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk, Motown junk We live in urban hell, we destroy rock and roll

The Curse

JOSH RITTER "So Runs The World Away"
He opens his eyes falls in love at first sight With the girl in the doorway What beautiful lines and how full of life After thousands of years what a face to wake up to He holds back a sigh as she touches his arm She dusts off the bed where 'til now he's been sleeping And under miles of stone, the dried fig of his heart Under scarab and bone starts back to its beating She carries him home in a beautiful boat He watches the sea from a porthole in stowage He can hear all she says as she sits by his bed And one day his lips answer her in her own language The days quickly pass he loves making her laugh The first time he moves it's her hair that he touches She asks, “Are you cursed?” He says, “I think that I'm cured” Then he talks of the Nile and the girls in bulrushes In New York he is laid in a glass covered case He pretends he is dead people crowd round to see him But each night she comes round and the two wander down The halls of the tomb that she calls a museum Often he stops to rest but then less and less Then it's her that looks tired staying up asking questions He learns how to read from the papers that she Is writing about him and he makes corrections It's his face on her book more and more come to look Families from Iowa, upper west siders Then one day it's too much he decides to get up And as chaos ensues he walks outside to find her She's using a cane and her face looks too pale But she's happy to see him as they walk he supports her She asks, “Are you cursed?” but his answer's obscured In a sandstorm of flashbulbs and rowdy reporters Such reanimation the two tour the nation He gets out of limos he meets other women He speaks of her fondly their nights in the museum But she's just one more rag now he's dragging behind him She stops going out she just lies there in bed In hotels in whatever towns they are speaking Then her face starts to set and her hands start to fold And one day the dried fig of her heart stops its beating Long ago on the ship she asked, “Why pyramids?” He said, “Think of them as an immense invitation” She asked, “Are you cursed?” He said, “I think that I'm cured” Then he kissed her and hoped that she'd forget that question

Sing Me A Song Again, Daddy

JOSE MARI CHAN
CHERI: Sing me a song again, Daddy Sing me a happy verse. Teach me those clever lines you sang As you carried me on your shoulders. Sing me that hymn that you so loudly Sang in church with mom. Sing it again to me and fill me With all your words of wisdom. Comforting words of love when I Would get home from school in tears. Somehow your songs have stayed within me Down through all the years. Once when my younger heart was broken Your shoulder was there to cry on. Sing me those songs I know will linger Long after you have gone. I am standing at the threshold Of a chapter in my life I am asking for your blessing As I'm about to be the wife Of a man I know who loves me And I'm proud to be his bride. Dad the time has come for me to leave your side. So, sing me a song again, Daddy. Sing me a lullaby. Wrap me inside your arms, Daddy, 'Though this is not goodbye. Your songs will live forever In my heart. When times get rough The ones I'll most remember Are your songs of love. JOSE: Your songs will live forever In my heart. When times get rough CHERI: The ones I'll most remember Are your songs of love.

Thinking Out Loud

JASMINE THOMPSON
When your legs don't work like they used to before And I can't sweep you off of your feet Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love? Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks? And, darling, I will be loving you 'til we're 70 And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23 And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways Maybe just the touch of a hand Well, me — I fall in love with you every single day And I just wanna tell you I am So honey now Take me into your loving arms Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars Place your head on my beating heart I'm thinking out loud Maybe we found love right where we are When my hair's all gone and my memory fades And the crowds don't remember my name When my hands don't play the strings the same way I know you will still love me the same 'Cause honey your soul could never grow old, it's evergreen And, baby, your smile's forever in my mind and memory I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways Maybe it's all part of a plan Well, I'll just keep on making the same mistakes Hoping that you'll understand But, baby, now Take me into your loving arms Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars Place your head on my beating heart And thinking out loud Maybe we found love right where we are Maybe we found love right where we are We found love right where we are

Remember This

ARTIST VS POET "Remember This"
Hey there baby how you doing? Where you been? It's been so long since I have seen your silly grin. As you beamed from the sight of me, but then again, Those days so long and gone. I can still remember them like yesterday. It's hard to say how everything turned out this way. So many words, so many fingers point the blame That led us down our separate roads. And after all the songs have had their sing, Did you know that you were playing just a game With my heart, and now I can't feel anything Worthy of the love we shared. Those days are good and gone, but I cannot forget The simple softness of your touch, and then your kiss We laughed aloud to every ex that are we missed. As we floored it past the mountains and never looked back. Time had passed and you grew weary, I grew sick From pains I've felt when I begged you not to call it quits. My piece was small and you stood firmly over it, So proud of what you've done. And after all the songs have had their sing, Did you know that you were playing just a game With my heart, and now I can't feel anything Worthy of the love we shared. Is that what you call a getaway? Tell me what you got away with. 'Cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish. I've seen more gut in eleven-year-old kids. Have another drink and drive yourself home. I hope there's ice on all the roads And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt, And again when your head goes through the windshield. Bitch And after all the songs have had their sing, Did you know that you were playing just a game With my heart, and now I can't feel anything Worthy of the love we shared. The love we shared. Never thought goodbye would come so very quick. But your wish is my command, command my wish. Should you ever change your mind, just please remember this: That I have loved you always and forever more.

That Somebody Was You

KENNY G "The Moment"
There's been so many times My heart has been broken into I kept them waiting in line Coz nobody's heart was true For every time I gave into love I would always end up blue And just when I was about to give up I found myself an angel call to you I've been waiting a lifetime for Somebody to love me like you do (oh yeah,oh yeah) I was thinking that I'd always Be lonely but God came up With someone like you Just to think I had made Up my mind love was over Somebody gave me the love That somebody was you I told you night after night I prayed for someone like you But no one ever was right They could not compare to you I wasn't sure if I could endure If things just stay the same I didn't know if God had in store A day without you loving my way I've been waiting a lifetime for Somebody to love me like you do Oh yeah (oh yeah) I was thinking that I'd always be Lonely but God came up With someone like you Just to think I had made up my mind Love was over Somebody gave me the love That somebody was you I've been waiting a lifetime for Somebody to love me like you do (baby) Oh yeah (oh yeah) I was thinking that I'd always be Lonely but God came up With someone like you Just to think I had made up my mind Love was over Somebody gave me the love (somebody gave me the love) Somebody gave me the love (opened my heart and gave me love) Somebody gave me the love (somebody gave me the love) That somebody was you....
