Lyrics

  • Girls on Film

    [Intro]
    Sound of Camera shutters flickering

    [Verse 1]
    See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
    Heads turning as the lights flashing out it's so bright
    Then walk right out to the four-line track
    There's a camera rolling on her back, on her back
    And I sense the rhythm humming in a frenzy all the way down her spine

    [Chorus]
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film

    [Verse 2]
    Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
    In miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
    The diving man's coming up for air
    Cause the crowd all love pulling dolly by the hair, by the hair
    And she wonders how she ever got here as she goes under again

    [Chorus]
    Girls on film (two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (got your picture)
    Girls on film

    [Verse 3]
    Wider baby smiling you just made a million
    Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
    Take one last glimpse into the night
    I'm touching close I'm holding bright, holding tight
    Give me shudders in a whisper take me up till I'm shooting a star

    [Chorus-Outro]
    Girls on film (she's more than a lady)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (see you together)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (see you later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (what you doing)
    Girls on film...

  • Only came outside to watch the night fall with the rain
    I heard you making patterns rhyme
    Like some new romantic looking for the TV sound
    You'll see I'm right some other time

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is Planet Earth

    My head is stuck on something precious
    Let me know if you're coming down to land
    Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
    My eyes are so cloudy I can't see you

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Calling Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Looking at Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is Planet Earth

  • I never found out what made you leave
    And now the day is over, just an hour to go
    I tried to phone last night but you didn't answer
    Just left me ringing on the line

    Outside is there anyone out there, anyone else outside
    Outside love is there anyone out there, anyone else outside

    My face in the mirror shows the break in time
    A crack in the ocean which does not align
    I tried to sleep last night but I've caught your dreaming
    About days we used to wonder away

    Outside is there anyone out there, anyone else outside
    Outside love is there anyone out there, anyone else outside

    Look out of the window maybe you can call by my name
    Another night over babe another light comes on in vain

    I tried to phone last night but you never answered
    Just left me ringing in the air (outside)

    Is there anyone out there
    (anyone out there)

  • [Verse 1]
    So soon
    Just after you've gone
    My senses sharpen
    But it always takes
    So damned long
    Before I feel how much
    My eyes have darkened

    [Chorus 1]
    Fear hangs a plane of gun smoke
    Drifting in our room
    So easy to disturb
    With a thought
    With a whisper
    With a careless memory

    [Verse 2]
    On the table
    Signs of love life scattered
    And the walls break
    We go crashing within
    It's not as though
    As though you really mattered
    But being close
    How could I let you go
    Without some feeling
    Some precious sympathy following

    [Chorus 1]

    [Verse 3]
    I walk out into the sun
    I try to find a new day
    But the whole place
    It just screams in my eyes
    Where are you now?
    Cause I don't want to meet you
    I think I'd die
    I think I'd laugh at you
    I think I'd cry
    What am I supposed to do
    Follow you?

    [Chorus 1]

  • [Intro]
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now

    [Verse 1]
    I made a break, I run out yesterday
    Tried to find my mountain hideaway
    Maybe next year, maybe no go

    I know you're watching me
    Every minute of the day, yeah
    I've seen the signs
    And the looks and the pictures
    That give your game away, yeah

    There's a dream that strings the road
    With broken glass for us to hold
    And I cut so far before I had to say

    [Chorus 1]
    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say
    That would make you come my way?
    Do you feel the same?
    'Cause you don't let it show

  • [Verse 1]
    Standing on the edge of a quay
    Low lights flashing on the water for me
    Fogging my mind darkens my eyes
    Silently streaming for a distant sound
    Ripple river yellows
    Rising for a breath of breeding and drowns
    Stillness overcomes me in the night
    Listen to the rising water moan

    [Chorus]
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat

    [Verse 2]
    Shudders all through me shudder away
    Echo me, echo me (echo me...)
    Am I alone or is the river alive
    'Cause it echos me, echos me, echos me

    [Chorus]
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat

    Waiting
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat

    [outro]
    I'm waiting for the night boat

  • [Verse 1]
    I've been in this grass here
    For the last ten hours
    My clothes are dirty
    But my mouth isn't dry
    How does it happen?
    Does it fly through the air?
    Woah I gave up asking days away
    I gave up asking days away

    [Chorus]
    And now I'm lying here
    Waiting for the sound of thunder
    Waiting for the sound of thunder

    [Verse 2]
    Here I am I'm a dotted line
    Cut in through corners
    Stick me through your door
    I'm the man who stepped off the path
    And I just lying here
    That's what I was made for

    [Verse 3]
    And now my eyes are closing
    But I still feel the land
    Leaning out for the touch of my hand
    The world spins so fast
    That I might fly off
    The world spins so fast
    That I might fly off
    The world spins so fast
    I might fly off

    [Outro]
    Waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder

  • [Verse 1]
    Friends of mine
    They said they were friends of mine
    Said they were passing time
    More like a waste of time

    Close the door
    I said close the door
    I've told you twice before
    What are you waiting for?

    [Chorus]
    Georgie Davis is coming out
    No more heroes we twist and shout
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not taking anymore
    Rocky Picture has lost his gun
    Leave him out now he's having fun
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not waiting anymore, hey, hey

    [Verse 2]
    Silly lies
    Don't have to advertise
    When will you realize?
    I'm sick of your alibis

    Running cold
    The water's running cold
    It's time that you were told
    I think you're growing old

    [Chorus]
    Georgie Davies is coming out
    No more heroes we twist and shout
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not waiting anymore
    Rocky Picture has lost his gun
    Leave him out now he's having fun
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not taking any more (hey, hey)

    [Bridge]
    I see you smile
    Pictures on the wall, they're all friends of mine
    See you standing 'round the back (friends of mine)
    Think yourself lucky

    [Verse 3]
    Friends of mine
    They said they were friends of mine
    They were just wasting time
    Out on the dotted line

    Oh, money's gone
    I've known it all along
    Why don't you say I'm wrong?
    Why don't they drop the bomb?

    [Chorus]
    'Cause Georgie Davies is coming out
    No more heroes we twist and shout
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not waiting anymore
    Rocky Picture's thrown away his gun
    Leave him out now he's having fun
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not taking any more

    [Outro]
    What you doing, friends of mine?
    Holding back now, friends of mine
    I've always heard you calling
