Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Jimmy Jones

This week’s rather late award goes to Jimmy Jones, and the feature song is Good Timin’

Oh, you need timin’
A tick, a tick, a tick, good timin’
A tock, a tock, a tock, a tock
A timin’ is the thing
It’s true, good timin’ brought me to you

If little, little David hadn’t grabbed that stone
A-lyin’ there on the ground
Big Goliath might’ve stomped on him
Instead of the other way ’round

But he had timin’
A tick, a tick, a tick, good timin’
A tock, a tock, a tock, a tock
A timin’ is the thing
It’s true, good timin’ brought me to you

Who in the world would’ve ever known
What Columbus could do
If Queen Isabella hadn’t hocked her jewels
In fourteen ninety two

But she had timin’
A tick, a tick, a tick, good timin’
A tock, a tock, a tock, a tock
A timin’ is the thing
It’s true, good timin’ brought me to you

What would’ve happened if you and I
Hadn’t just happened to meet
We might’ve spent the rest of our lives
Walkin’ down Misery Street

But we had timin’
A tick, a tick, a tick, good timin’
A tock, a tock, a tock, a tock
A timin’ is the thing
It’s true, good timin’ brought me to you

Yeah, we had timin’
Whoa, whoa, whoa, good timin’
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, timin’ is the thing
It’s true, good timin’ brought me to you

Yeah, we had timin’
Whoa, whoa, whoa, good timin’
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, timin’ is the thing
It’s true, good timin’ brought me to you

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Willie Nelson

The musician(s) of the week award took a hiatus while I was in Deniliquin which extended itself by a couple weeks, but it’s back this week with a great musician and a great song.

This week’s award goes to Willie Nelson, and the feature song is “Nothing I Can Do About It Now”. Apologies about the video…this week you get to enjoy somebody’s road trip photos…on the bright side, the photos are of their road trip to see Willie Nelson.

I’ve got a long list of real good reasons
For all the things I’ve done
I’ve got a picture in the back of my mind
Of what I’ve lost and what I’ve won
I’ve survived every situation
Knowing when to freeze and when to run
And regret is just a memory written on my brow
And there’s nothing I can do about it now.

I’ve got a wild and a restless spirit
I held my price through every deal
I’ve seen the fire of a woman’s scorn
Turn her heart of gold to steal
I’ve got the song of the voice inside me
Set to the rhythm of the wheel
And I’ve been dreaming like a child
Since the cradle broke the bow
And there’s nothing I can do about it now.

Running through the changes
Going through the stages
Coming round the corners in my life
Leaving doubt to fate
Staying out too late
Waiting for the moon to say goodnight
And I could cry for the time I’ve wasted
But that’s a waste of time and tears,
And I know just what I’d change
If went back in time somehow
But there’s nothing I can do about it now

Running through the changes
Going through the stages
Coming round the corners in my life
Leaving doubt to fate
Staying out too late
Waiting for the moon to say goodnight
And I could cry for the time I’ve wasted
But that’s a waste of time and tears
And I know just what I’d change
If went back in time somehow
But there’s nothing I can do about it now.
I’m forgiving everything that forgiveness will allow
And there’s nothing I can do about it now

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Seal

This week’s award goes to Seal, and the feature song is “Amazing”, a song I went looking for after hearing a very short extract of it used as part of the 2UE IDs for various presenters (I think the first time I heard it, it was being used for Stuart Bocking).


Seal – Amazing
by PeteRock

Everyone says you’re amazing
(amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing, amazing)

Say you don’t know, how to do it now
So you run
It’s not that you’re bleeding, but you’re through it now
So you run, so you run
I know that you need it, you can’t live alone
So you run, so you run…

Everyone says you’re amazing
Now that you’re clean
Only you know who the real ones are, ’cause you’ve seen
There’s only one question I want to ask, is it healing when you hear
Everyone see you’re amazing?

Does anyone ask you?
If you cry in your sleep and do you feel okay
When you run?
Thinkin’ it’s doomsday, you got to let it go
So you run, so you run…

Pretend you don’t see it, that way you can live the lie, when you run…
So you run..

Everyone says you’re amazing
Now that you’re clean
Only you know who the real ones are, ’cause you’ve seen
There’s only one question I want to ask, is it healing when, when you hear
Everyone see you’re amazing?

Does anyone ask you…? (ask you, ask you, ask you, ask you, ask you, ask you)
‘Cause I know that you’re real, amazing, amazing, amazing…

Everyone says you’re amazing
Now that you’re clean
Only you know who the real ones are, because you have seen
There’s only one question I want to ask, is it healing when you hear
Everyone see you’re amazing?

Everyone see you’re amazing
(I want you to always feel amazing)
Everyone says you’re amazing
(I want you to always feel amazing)
(I want you to always feel amazing)
You’re amazing

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Van Morrison

This week’s award goes to Van Morrison (aka George Ivan Morrison) and the feature song is Jackie Wilson Said, which is also the theme song for Tim Webster’s afternoon show on 2UE. 2CC also use an extract from the tail end of the song for Tim’s pre-recorded goodbye message at the end of each show.

Unfortunately the only video I can find of Van Morrison performing this song is of one of his later “I’ve really forgotten how to sing this song, but I’ll try and fail anyway” efforts, so instead you get a cut down version of the song on some bloke’s skiing video!

doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Jackie Wilson said, it was reet petite
Kind of love you got, knocks me off my feet
Let it all hang out, oh let it all hang out

Ahh you know, I’m so wired up
Don’t need no coffee in my cup
Let it all hang out, let it all hang out

Watch this
Dang a lang a lang, dang a lang a lang a dang
Dang a lang a lang, dang a lang a lang a dang
Doo doo doo doo doo

I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven
When you smile, when you smile
When you smile, when you smile

And when you walk across the road, it make my heart
go BOOM BOOM BOOM
Let it all hang out
Baby let it all hang out

There are times, you look my way
Heaven child, you’d make my day
Let it all hang it out
Like the man said let it all hang out

Watch out
Dang a lang a lang, dang a lang a lang a dang
Dang a lang a lang, dang a lang a lang a dang
Doo doo doo doo doo

I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven
When you smile, when you smile
I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven
When you smile, one more time

I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven, I’m in heaven
When you smile, when you smile

Bop, jop duop, jop jop, jop jop, jop duop duop duop duop
Doo-doop doo-doop doo-doop doo-doop doo-doop doo-doop doo-doop
Doo doo doo

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Phil Harris

This week’s award goes to Phil Harris, and the feature song is a real classic…The Thing. Other than his much, Phil is well known as the voice of Baloo in Disney’s The Jungle Book.

While I was walking down the beach one bright and sunny day
I saw a great big wooden box a-floatin’ in the bay
I pulled it in and opened it up and much to my surprise
Ooh, I discovered a (boom-boom-boom), right before my eyes
Ooh, I discovered a (boom-boom-boom), right before my eyes

I picked it up and ran to town as happy as a king
I took it to a guy I knew who’d buy most any thing
But this is what he hollered at me as I walked in his shop
Ooh, get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom), before I call a cop
Ooh, get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom) before I call a cop

I turned around and got right out, a-runnin’ for my life
And than I took it home with me to give it to my wife
But this is what she hollered at me as I walked in the door
Ooh, get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom), and don’t come back no more
Ooh, get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom), and don’t come back no more

I wandered all around the town until I chanced to meet
A hobo who was looking for a hand-out on the street
He said he’d take most any old thing, he was a desperate man
But when I showed him the (boom-boom-boom), he turned around and ran
Ooh, when I showed him the (boom-boom-boom), he turned around and ran

I wandered on for many years, a victim of my fate
Until one day I came upon St. Peter at the gate
And when I tried to take it inside, he told me where to go
Get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom) and take it down below
Ooh, get outta here with that (boom-boom-boom) and take it down below

The moral of this story is if you’re out on the beach
And you should see a great big box and it’s within your reach
Don’t ever stop and open it up, that’s my advice to you
‘Cause you’ll never get rid of the (boom-boom-boom), no matter what you do
Ooh, you’ll never get rid of the (boom-boom-boom), no matter what you do (boom-boom)

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: The Pretenders

This weeks award is in honour of the 21st birthday (yesterday) of The Rush Limbaugh Show. Therefore the award goes to The Pretenders, and the feature song is the song from which Rush’s theme music comes…My City Was Gone.

The Pretenders- My City Was Gone (vinyl) from JeffN1960 on Vimeo.

The above video sounds fantastic, however it is taking an age to download for me, so if it takes too long for you, try the following one instead.

I went back to Ohio
But my city was gone
There was no train station
There was no downtown
South Howard had disappeared
All my favorite places
My city had been pulled down
Reduced to parking spaces
Eh, Oh, way to go Ohio

Well I went back to Ohio
But my family was gone
I stood on the back porch
There was nobody home
I was stunned and amazed
My childhood memories
Slowly swirled past
Like the wind through the trees
Eh, Oh, Oh way to go Ohio

I went back to Ohio
But my pretty countryside
Had been paved down the middle
By a government that had no pride
The farms of Ohio
Had been replaced by shopping malls
And muzak filled the air
From Seneca to Cuyahoga Falls
Said, Eh, Oh, Oh way to go Ohio

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: Infernal

It’s a rather interesting coincidence that when I went to Google Video to find the video clip for the feature song, the first thing to catch my eye on the Google Video home page was what appears to be the entire science fiction film TRON. This is a coincidence because the video for the feature song has a very TRONesque feel to it, and even steals the TRON Light Cycle. Until today, I had not seen the video for this song, so it was quite a surprise.

The feature song is “From Paris To Berlin”.

From Paris to Berlin
And every disco I get in
My heart is pumping for love
Pumping for love
‘Cause when I’m thinkin’ of you
And all the things we could do
My heart is pumping for love
You left me longing for you, you, you

From Paris to Berlin
And every disco I get in
My heart is pumping for love
Pumping for love
‘Cause when I’m thinkin’ of you
And all the things we could do
My heart is pumping for love

Patience is a game
And every night I say your name
Hoping that you’ll answer
’cause I’m going insane
It’s quite along time ago
You brought me out of control
Hungry for your lovin’
Like I know what that might be

From Paris to Berlin
And every disco I get in
My heart is pumping for love
Pumping for love
‘Cause when I’m thinkin’ of you
And all the things we could do
My heart is pumping for love
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you

Teasing was the thing
And now I just can’t let it go
Meetin’ you was something no-one else needs to know
I quess I’m thinkin’ of you
Like I would know what to do
If and when I found you, but I don’t
I’ve got no clue

From Paris to Berlin
And every disco I get in
My heart is pumping for love
Pumping for love
‘Cause when I’m thinkin’ of you
And all the things we could do
My heart is pumping for love
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you

Who-hou-u
Who-hou-u
Who-hou-u
Who-hou-u
Who-hou-u
Who-hou-u
Who-hou-u

From Paris to Berlin
And every disco I get in
My heart is pumping for love
Pumping for love
‘Cause when I’m thinkin’ of you
And all the things we could do
My heart is pumping for love
You left me longing for you

From Paris to Berlin
And every disco I get in
My heart is pumping for love
Pumping for love
‘Cause when I’m thinkin’ of you
And all the things we could do
My heart is pumping for love
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you
You left me longing for you

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: John Williamson

This week’s award goes to John Williamson, and the feature song is Old Man Emu.

Let me tell you of an interview with an Old Man Emu
He’s got a beak and feathers and things, but the poor old fella ain’t got no wings
“Aren’t you jealous of the wedge-tail eagle?” – dom ba da littra da da da

(Spoken in tempo) “While the eagle’s flying round and round, I keep my two feet firmly on the ground
Now I can’t fly, but I’m telling you, I can run the pants off a kangaroo”.

doo dee ba doo doo doo , boo da da doot doo doo doo
He can’t fly, but I’m telling you, he can run the pants off a kangaroo.

Well he was the model for the fifty cents – oom ba da littra da da da
The designer should have had more sense – oom ba da littra da da da
“If you take a look, it’ll prove to you, ha ha ha I ran the pants off that kangaroo”.

Doo dee ba doo doo doo…Boo da da doot doo doo..
Take a look it’ll prove to you, he ran the pants off the kangaroo.

He can’t loop the loop like a cockatoo – Oom ba da littra da da da
Swoop and toss like an albatross – Oom ba da littra da da da
“You silly galah, I’m better by far, than a white cockatoo or a budgerigar;
They squeak and squawk and try to talk, why me and them’s like cheese and chalk”
Ba da da Doo dee ba doo doo doo…Boo da da doot doo doo doo
He can’t fly but I’m telling you, he can run the pants off a kangaroo…

Well the last time I saw Old Man Emu – Oom ba da littra da da da
He was chasing a female he knew – Oom ba da littra da da da
As he shot past I heard him say “She can’t fly, but I’m telling you
She could run the pants off a kangaroo”. –

Ba da da Doo dee ba doo doo doo Doo dee ba doo doo doo
She can’t fly but I’m telling you, she can run the pants off a kangaroo

Well there is a moral to this ditty – Oom ba da littra da da da
Thrush can sing but he ain’t pretty – Oom ba da littra da da da
Duck can swim, but he can’t sing, nor can the eagle on the wing
Emu can’t fly, but I’m telling you, he can run the pants off a kangaroo.

Well the kookaburra laughed and he said “It’s true, oom ba da littra da da da,
Ha Ha Ha Ha Hah Hoo, He can run the pants off a kangaroo Hoo Ha Ha Ha Ha Hah Hoo Ha Ha Ha Ha Hah”

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Tommy Roe

And the feature song is Dizzy. As for the video, I think this one is the best of the lot in terms of sound quality on YouTube…not much I can do about the twenty seconds of buzz at the beginning before the song starts though.

Dizzy
I’m so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And it’s you girl makin’ it spin
You’re making me dizzy

First time that I saw you girl, I knew that I just had to make you mine
But it’s so hard to talk to you with fellows hangin’ round you all the time
I want you for my sweet pet, but you keep playing hard to get
I’m going round in circles all the time

Dizzy
I’m so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And it’s you girl makin’ it spin
You’re making me dizzy

I finally got to talk to you and I told you just exactly how I felt
Then I held you close to me and kissed you and my heart began to melt
Girl you’ve got control on me, ’cause I’m so dizzy I can’t see
I need to call a doctor for some help

Dizzy
I’m so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And it’s you girl makin’ it spin
You’re making me dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And it’s you girl making it spin
You’re making me dizzy
You’re making me dizzy
I’m so dizzy

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: Dschinghis Khan

And the feature song is Moskau, the unofficial theme song of the 1980 Moscow Olympics. I’m using the English language version of the song for the lyrics, although I do think the German version sounds better.

And yes, I am aware that Maritz posted this video here when she filled in for me last year. The song was already on my Musician(s) Of The Week waiting list at the time, so I wasn’t overly pleased about it, although I was amused when she had trouble embedding the video and ended up embedding it twice.

Here’s the song…the English language version to start with.

Moscow, queen of the Russian land,
Built like a rock to stand, proud and divine.
Moscow, your golden towers glow,
Even through ice and snow, sparkling they shine.

And every night, night, night, there is music,
Oh, every night, night, night, there is love.
And every night, night, night, there is laughter,
Here’s to you brother, hey, brother, ho!
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

Moscow, Moscow, throw your glasses at the wall,
And good fortune to us all, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho, hey!
Moscow, Moscow, join us for a kazachok,
We’ll go dancing round the clock, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, hey!
Moscow, Moscow, drinking Vodka all night long,
Keeps you happy, makes you strong, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho, hey!
Moscow, Moscow, come and have a drink and then,
You will never leave again, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Hey!

Moscow, la-la-la…, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho, hey!
Moscow, Moscow, la-la-la…, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Ooooh….

Moscow! Moscow!

Moscow, Moscow, take Natascha in your arms,
You’ll be captured by her charms, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho, hey!
Moscow, Moscow, she will make you understand,
Russia is a wondrous land, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Moscow! Moscow!

And every night, night, night, there is music,
Oh, every night, night, night, there is love.
And every night, night, night, there is laughter,
Here’s to you brother, hey, brother, ho!
Hey, hey, hey, hey!

Moscow, Moscow, throw your glasses at the wall,
And good fortune to us all, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho, hey!
Moscow, Moscow, join us for a kazachok,
We’ll go dancing round the clock, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, hey!
Moscow, Moscow, drinking Vodka all night long,
Keeps you happy, makes you strong, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho, hey!
Moscow, Moscow, come and have a drink and then,
You will never leave again, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Hey!

And the German version, complete with words I doubt that I’ll ever be able to pronounce, let alone spell.

Great song!

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week: Michael Jackson

As promised I have , for this week, suspended the randomised selection of musicians from the ever-growing waiting list so that I can give the award to Michael Jackson.

The feature song is my favourite Michael Jackson song, “Beat It”.

They told him don’t you ever come around here
Don’t wanna see your face, you better disappear
The fire’s in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it, just beat it

You better run, you better do what you can
Don’t wanna see no blood, don’t be a macho man
You wanna be tough, better do what you can
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it
Just beat it, beat it

They’re out to get you, better leave while you can
Don’t wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man
You wanna stay alive, better do what you can
So beat it, just beat it

You have to show them that you’re really not scared
You’re playin’ with your life, this ain’t no truth or dare
They’ll kick you, then they beat you,
Then they’ll tell you it’s fair
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
(beat it, beat it, beat it)
(beat it, beat it, beat it)
(beat it, beat it)
(beat it, beat it, beat it)

Beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated (oh no)
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or who’s right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated (oh no)
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: Spacehog

This week’s award goes to British band Spacehog, and the feature song is one which borrows quite successfully from The Penguin Cafe Orchestra’s “Telephone and Rubber Band”…the song is “In The Meantime”.

Incidentally, thanks to our good friends the copyright police, YouTube don’t appear to have the studio version of this song, and audio has been disabled on the one video I could find where the studio version does appear…as a soundtrack to somebody’s footage of their skiing holiday! As such, today’s video comes from DailyMotion and loads more slowly than a YouTube video would.


Spacehog- In the Meantime
by Tunashaker

ohoooohoooooooohooooooooooh
ohoooohoooooooohooooooooooh
ohoooohoooooooohooooooooooh
ohohooooohooooooooooooooooh

And in the end we shall achieve in time
The thing they call divine
And all the stars will shine for me
When all is well and well is all for all
Forever after
We’re living in the meantime wait and see

We love the all the all of you
Where lands are green and skies are blue
When all in all we’re just like you
We love the all of you

And when I cry for me I cry for you
With tears of holy joy
For all the days still to come
And did I ever say I’d never play
Or fly toward the sun
Living in the meantime something’s gone

We love the all the all of you
Where lands are green and skies are blue
When all in all we’re just like you
We love the all of you

Well that sounds fine so I’ll see you sometime
Give my love to the future of the humankind
Okay, okay, it’s not okay.
While it’s on my mind there’s a girl that fits the crime
For a future love dream that I’m still to find
But in the meantime

We love the all the all of you
Where lands are green and skies are blue
When all in all we’re just like you
We love the all of you

We love the all the all of you
Our lands are green and skies are blue

Just like you
Just like you
Just like, just like
Just like you
Just like you
Just like you
Just like, just like
Just like you

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: Sting and The Police

This week’s award goes to Sting and The Police, and the feature song is “Walking On The Moon”.

Giant steps are what you take
Walking on the moon
I hope my legs don’t break
Walking on the moon
We could walk forever
Walking on the moon
We could live together
Walking on, walking on the moon

Walking back from your house
Walking on the moon
Walking back from your house
Walking on the moon
Feet they hardly touch the ground
Walking on the moon
My feet don’t hardly make no sound
Walking on, walking on the moon

Some may say
I’m wishing my days away, no way
And if it’s the price I pay, some say
Tomorrow’s another day, you’ll stay
I may as well play

Giant steps are what you take
Walking on the moon
I hope my legs don’t break
Walking on the moon
We could walk forever
Walking on the moon
We could be together
Walking on, walking on the moon

Some may say
I’m wishing my days away, no way
And if it’s the price I pay, some say
Tomorrow’s another day, you’ll stay
I may as well play

Keep it up (repeat to end)

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: The Cars

The award this week goes to The Cars, and the feature song is one with an appropriate title for a band with such a name. It is “Drive”.

Who’s gonna tell you when,
It’s too late?
Who’s gonna tell you things,
Aren’t so great?

You cant go on, thinkin’,
Nothing’s wrong, whoa ho…,
Who’s gonna drive you home,
tonight?

Who’s gonna pick you up,
When you fall?
Who’s gonna hang it up,
When you call?

Who’s gonna pay attention,
To your dreams?
And who’s gonna plug their ears,
When you scream?

You can’t go on, thinkin’
Nothing’s wrong, whoa ho…,
(who’s gonna drive you)
(who’s gonna drive you)
Who’s gonna drive you home, tonight?
(who’s gonna drive you home)

(bye baby)
(bye baby)
(bye baby)
(bye baby)

Who’s gonna hold you down,
When you shake?
Who’s gonna come around,
When you break?

You can’t go on, thinkin’,
Nothing’s wrong, whoa ho…,
(Who’s gonna drive you)
(who’s gonna drive you)
Who’s gonna drive you home, tonight?
(who’s gonna drive you home)

Ho…, you know you can’t go on, thinkin’,
Nothing’s wrong,
(Who’s gonna drive you)
(Who’s gonna drive you home)
Who’s gonna drive you home, tonight?

(bye baby)
(bye baby)

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: Franz Ferdinand

This week’s award goes to the Scottish band Franz Ferdinand, and the feature song is one which doesn’t get enough attention, and is in my view their best song, Come On Home.

Although my lover lives
In a place that I can’t live
I kind of find I like a life this lonely
It rips and pierces me
In places I can’t see
I love the rip of nerves
The rip that wakes me
So I’m dissatisfied
I love dissatisfied
I love to feel there’s always more that I need

So come on home
So come on home
So come on – home home

You’re where you want to be
I’m where I want to be
Come on we’re chasing everything we’ve ever wanted
Replace you easily
Replace pathetically
I flirt with every flighty thing that falls my way
But how I needed you
When I needed you
Let’s not forget
We are so strong
So bloody strong

Come on home
So come on home
So come on – home home

Blue light falls upon your perfect skin
Falls and you draw back again
Falls and this is how I fell
And I cannot forget
And I cannot forget

Come on home
So come on home
But don’t forget to ring
