When It’s All Over


01. Never Gonna Fall In Love Again
Something snapped me out of a dream that I was having
I’d fallen down an elevator shaft but now I’m back again
Tidying up after the fight we had (Never gonna fall in love again,
never gonna fall in love again)

Happy with yourself, well you’ve never looked so satisfied
Teasing me with stuff like a spoilt little brother
You finished yet? Have you got what you really want? (Never gonna fall
in love again, never gonna fall in love again)

Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again
Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again
Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again
Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again
Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again
Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again
Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again
Never gonna fall in love again, never gonna fall in love again

02. Ask Me How I Am
Hey your ride to your ride, hey your ride to your ride
Hey your ride to your ride, hey your ride to your ride
Has nobody asked you how you are?
You look like you might not last the day
I wouldn’t have made it very far
So we’d make a good team right away
I’ve not made amends for yesterday
My lip won’t get me out of it
Waking up dreading hearing tales
Of all of my nightmares being true

Hey your ride to your ride, hey your ride to your ride
Hey your ride to your ride, hey your ride to your ride

Has nobody asked you how you are?
You look like you might not last the day
I wouldn’t have made it very far
So we’d make a good team right away
I’ve not made amends for yesterday
My lip won’t get me out of it
Waking up dreading hearing tales
Of all of my nightmares being true
I take a breath and grab the phone
Secretly hoping you’re not home
I’d leave a message I was out
Out of my mind on drink and drugs

Hey your ride to your ride, hey your ride to your ride
Hey your ride to your ride, hey your ride to your ride
Hey your ride to your ride, hey your ride to your ride
Hey your ride to your ride, hey your ride to your ride

03. Making Enemies
We’re just waiting for our man to come through with a plan
Of how the hell we turn this ’round and dig ourselves out of the ground
We don’t really want to know the things you claim to know
It could fall around our ears, might not hurt for years and years

We’re just waiting for our man to come through with a plan
Of how the hell we turn this ’round and dig ourselves out of the ground
We don’t really want to know the things you claim to know
It could fall around our ears, might not hurt for years and years

(We’re just waiting, we’re just waiting) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(We’re just waiting, we’re just waiting) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(We’re just waiting, we’re just waiting) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(We’re just waiting, we’re just waiting) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(We’re just waiting, we’re just waiting) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(We’re just waiting, we’re just waiting) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(We’re just waiting, we’re just waiting) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(We’re just waiting, we’re just waiting) Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah

We’re just waiting for our man to come through with a plan (Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah)

04. Black and Blue
Blood red lips like soft intentions
Kiss my eyes, they’re black and blue
Even if I shouldn’t be here
I cannot help myself with you
There’s something that I should have told you
We won’t get a second chance
Just one night is all we’ll spend
Together and it’s killing me, she ree-ee-ee…

She rescues me, she rescues me, she rescues me, she rescues me
She rescues me, she rescues me, she rescues me, she rescues me
She rescues me, she rescues me, she rescues me, she rescues me
She rescues me, she rescues me, she rescues me, she ree-ee-ee…

05. Last Ever Lone Gunman
This heartbreak is never-ending, it’s like it never happened
A fall from grace is close, why not speed it up?
I’ve never been so angry to find out that I failed
It didn’t even work, I have to make amends
I shot him from the window, the world just held its breath
And I made my escape as if no-one could see
I took off in my pick-up, kids screaming in the back seat
They heard the shots too and screamed cause that’s their way

I do it alright in my own way, I do it alright in my own way
I do it alright in my own way, I do it alright in my own way

We’ve all got bigger plans but when it comes down to it
Mine might save the world at least for one more day
Don’t judge me from your sofas, on TV things don’t ever
Come across so true, they’re made up in your minds

I do it alright in my own way, I do it alright in my own way
I do it alright in my own way, I do it alright in my own way

06. If I’d Found the Right Words to Say
Right about now if I’d found the right words to say
I’d tell you you’re safe and take hold of your hand
I’ll be there by your side for the rest of your life
Our bodies could fall off the end of the world

Something told me we’d be happy forever
I don’t see how this could change any of that
I will follow your ghost as it climbs up the rock-face
And lie with you on the grass above

And I’d like to change all this
And I’d like to wake up from this
By your side

How did we ever survive for this length of time?
Living with only a care for one thing
But the light that shines from her
Whenever she’s happy is worth every minute
That we’ve saved ourselves

Maybe there’s hope in just one final second
A flash of her love as she waves us goodbye
Don’t torture yourself with what we might have given
We did everything that we could ever do

And I’d like to change all this
And I’d like to wake up from this
By your side

07. Batten Down the Hatch
Batten down the hatch
‘Cause we’re all coming in
Like uninvited guests
Romancing everything
Keep your hands away
From what you can’t afford
We don’t think that we’ll stay
Now that you look bored

God only knows
What Brian Wilson meant
Pick out your clothes
With some real intent
You don’t seem to care
That I’ve been waiting here
Pulling out my hair
For you to come
My dear

I’ll go all the way
As long as you go first
Running all this way
Has given me a thirst
Believe in what you want
As long as you can see
What’s right in front of you
I guess that that’s just me

08. One Night Is Not Enough
You left your door wide open
Couldn’t help but walk in
It’s the last place I should be
But I’m dying to see you

Have I held out for something
That is never gonna happen?

It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love

You woke up cold this morning
Shied away from my touch
I would never mean to hurt you
‘Cause I love you so much

Was it always only one night
That you ever wanted from me?

It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love
It’s not me that you love

09. Chased By…I Don’t Know What
And I’ll come running for my life
Scramble through these greasy pathways
I can’t look up for fear of forwards
I hear your words reverberate

An easy ride is all you said I was, an easy ride is all you said I was
An easy ride is all you said I was, an easy ride is all you said I was

Please try to control your feelings
It doesn’t make me want you more
I’m terrified by every vacant
Glance you shoot across my way

An easy ride is all you said I was, an easy ride is all you said I was
An easy ride is all you said I was, an easy ride is all you said I was

10. On/Off
I couldn’t believe what I was seeing
Faces all screwed up like what I’d done
I didn’t mean to hurt you so much
I knew it would hurt you but not like this
We all make a mess from time to time dear
But it’ll take me a lifetime to get this cleared
Somebody muttered something under their breath
But I let on like I was a little deaf

Nobody’s perfect that’s what I say
No one has hurt me so much you say
I’m sorry

Running away seemed like the easy
Thing to do because I wanted time
To put a smile back on my dour face
For once nothing’s missing and I feel fine
I was afraid to tell you some things
But some things all find a way to get told
Hearing it from the lips of somebody else
Must have knocked the wind out of your sweet face

Nobody’s perfect that’s what I say
No one has hurt me so much you say
I’m sorry
Nobody’s perfect that’s what I say
No one has hurt me so much you say
I’m sorry

11. An Olive Grove Facing the Sea
Sworn to secrecy
I might go after school
She was an angel
I saw her swimming there
I am in such a mess
I can’t cope without this
She just teases me
Pretends she can’t see me here

So let me go out there
I can breathe fresh air
Lay with you all night
Just let me love you
Just for a while want to
Be with you all night
Be with you all night
Until I fall asleep
Until I fall asleep
Until I fall asleep
Until I fall asleep
Just let me be here
I won’t tell anyone
Don’t want to wake up
Don’t want to wake up

The blind lead the blind
So why can’t I find my way
This could be heaven
But I don’t know where I am
I am too scared to come out
From behind here
My body is aching
It feels like it’s wearing me

So let me go out there
I can breathe fresh air
Lay with you all night
Just let me love you
Just for a while want to
Be with you all night
Be with you all night
Until I fall asleep
Until I fall asleep
Until I fall asleep
Until I fall asleep
Just let me be here
I won’t tell anyone
Don’t want to wake up
Don’t want to wake up

12. When It’s All Over We Still Have to Clear Up
You’re not fair
Telling me
You faked every orgasm
You’ve had with me
That’s just fine
Now it’s over
And I’m out here
Banging my head

You’re not fair
Telling me
You faked every orgasm
You’ve had with me
That’s just fine
Now it’s over
And I’m out here
Banging my head

After all the dancing
And spilling beer all over the place
I lie out here
In disgrace

You’ve had your fun
Kissed some bloke you shouldn’t have
Right in front of me
I punched him to the floor
I could have killed him there
But I got thrown out
I’ll get him some other time
When he least expects it

13. Make Love to Me Forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever

It took half the time
(Make love to me forever)
I am still afraid
(Make love to me forever)
So stay by my side
(Make love to me forever)
And hold on to my hand
(Make love to me forever)
Try to teach me that
(Make love to me forever)
I’m alright I guess
(Make love to me forever)
But there’s so much wrong
(Make love to me forever)
But there’s so much right
(Make love to me forever)
I guess we’ll agree
(Make love to me forever)
To differ on one thing
(Make love to me forever)

Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever
Make love to me forever

We won’t get much sleep

We won’t get much sleep (More than I should have)
We won’t get much sleep (Love my simple life)
We won’t get much sleep (I will stay right here)

Firelight, firelight, firelight, fire little
Firelight, firelight, firelight, fire little
Firelight, firelight, firelight, fire little
Firelight, firelight, firelight, fire little, firelight

15. In Command of Cars
It was the bridge she flung herself off I used to see her
Standing on one side as if too frightened to walk across
And sometimes stand still and drive some invisible car
Toes on the edge of the pavement

To steer her clear of the car that hit her on the way down
Rubbing asphalt in her wounds
A love that won’t die only tortures nothing else no comfort no future brakes a fair-few up
If there is a god someone wake him up and tell him to sort it out
Tell him to sort it out

Command of cars you drive
Command of cars you drive

He sits and stares at the road
White lines blur into black
Until he sees nothing else
He tried to cope with her loss
By forgetting who he was
But he’d never forget her face
I saw him make the first move
To follow her all the way down
The wire for the last time
He dreamt he’d taken a dive
And called her on the way down
And now he can sleep at night
He still has a lock of her hair
He gave her a lock of his own
He clenches it tight in his hand

Command of cars you drive
Command of cars you drive
Command of cars you drive
Command of cars you drive

16. Talk to the Trees
Talk to the trees
That’s why they take me away
I married the game so no one really sees what it’s done to me
A little obsessed by how much I depend
But somebody else’s cased your head and seen your other lies

17. Monkey Mobe
Hands over the wide world
Watch me so I can
Walk straight on nothing
Give it to me
I’ll make it barely
To tumble down
Recovered by wine
Make a new life

18. Monkey Mobe
I don’t want to be alone
I don’t want to be alone
I don’t want to be alone
‘Cause I don’t want to die here alone

I don’t want to be alone
I don’t want to be alone
I don’t want to be alone
‘Cause I don’t want to die here alone
