The cracks in your stained glass window Add another detail to your dismay And oil puddles filled with rainbows Just another miracle in your way As you trudge and you nudge, Ask the bus queue to budge To let you rest the weight you carry around Amidst the mumble so the mid-week mornings Catch you yawning out familiar sounds If people hear what they want then be clear what you want let out a crystal-clear silver scream let them hear what you mean The creaks and the groans of the same old bones Incessant ringtones of the mobile phones As you wait for the joy of a dream cowboy to call And take you away from it all. Open the doors to the local saloon The jukebox long ripped out So the music of the pumps plays irregular tunes Between the whispers and occasional shouts The outlaws and in-laws With lovebites and coldsores Make every day a wild west scene And if "all art is useless" then best start the bidding 'Cos here's a collector's dream If people get what they deserve Then hold onto your nerve No matter how impossible it seems. Make a bid for your dreams. The creaks and the groans... All you ever see is the day ahead All you ever need these days is your bed All you ever wanted was a horse to ride All you ever dreamed as a child has died... The creaks and the groans...

I guess I'm not The Sun Guess I'm not the warmest body out there spinning And my idea of of fun Is not just laying back beside you, laughing, grinning If you can take a hint then take it If you can catch the next bus I hope you make it Cos I'm blue, not gold Not hot hold Leave you colder than the coldest cold I'm heavenly, a sight to see But there's a little known fact about little old me In spite of all the fires I've begun I'm not The Sun. Some people used to think That I was just revolving round their little world Another big mistake Jumping to conclusions when I twist and twirl Dancing all alone I don't mind it In a space to call my own Don't try and find it. Cos I'm blue, not gold Not hot hold Leave you colder than the coldest cold I'm heavenly, a sight to see But there's a little known fact about little old me As hot as sparks inside a gun. I'm not The Sun. If you can take a hint ...

Have I just woken up from the grand illusion? Forgive me if I am wrong but did reality just intrude? Have I been incredibly blind, or too stupid enough to find, evidence for the very thing that you've just proved? Have I just seen the old man behind the curtain? The wizard's robes with the price tag still attached? Have I just really seen, How they made the Emerald City green? Behind the smoke and mirrors have you finally met your match? So you wanna be the man on the TV doing tricks nobody believes, well, nothing you do is ever gonna impress me. Your smug faced satisfaction may lead the others to a subtle distraction But these eyes spied And broke your spell on me. You can point your camera at me but don't expect me to look surprised. You can play the film backwards in the hope of a happy ending. Am I wrong or was I right? Was there a crime committed by candlelight? I'm finding it hard to believe I was hypnotised. So you wanna be the man on the TV...

I'm doing this for my dear, poorly mother. I've heard it all before. She was bitten by a rabid chihuahua-wa-wa I've heard it twenty times or more. Why bother getting out of bed everyday when reality is so predictable? Why breathing in and out I say When reality is so-so I've got a big gig at the Albert Hall. You've got a big gig there every week. And I don't know how I'm gonna pull it off this time. I'm pretty sure you'll manage with the smallest of tweaks. Why bother sleeping when you could stay awake And reality is so much fun fun fun?! Why bother working just for working sake? Keep your money on the run. It fills your dreams with silver and gold And a three star wedding paid in full by Hello! And it makes us weep down deep in our souls. Our souls... I'm doing this for my dear, sweet hometown. We used to be the best of friends. So throw me a parade when I'm wearing the crown. Don't think we'll ever see you again. Why bother coming back to grim, grey streets When there's diamonds on the soles of your Jimmy Choo shoes? Why bother bother speaking to the people you meet If they're not in Who's Who? It fills your dreams with silver and gold...

If I called you Darlin'... I'd kick you into touch. If "baby" ever passed my lips... That's four letters too much. Where are all the words that I can use? To win the heart that you're about to lose. Oh my little hunnybun. So sweet it makes me sick. And if I popped The question? That's a bubble I would prick. How can I tell you the way I feel? Try saying something vaguely real. Like all these... Sticks and stones and broken bones and glass and bricks and phones they will knock your ass if you can't find a single word that million baby cupcakes have not heard. I'll think of something just for you. Well that would be a start. A word plucked out of my own head. Try something from the heart. A word that will combine my love and lust. Use artistic license if you must. How about the goldfish... Of your septic tank? My million dollar doughnut? From the jelly ice cream bank? A word to make your heart just leap and soar. Not leave you knocked out cold upon the floor. Like all these... Sticks and stones and broken bones and glass and bricks and phones they will knock your ass if you can't find a single word that million sugarpies have not heard. Cutie pie (cut it) Sweetchecks (bruise it) funnyface (smack it) moonbeam (lose it) Puppy dog (drown it) cherry lips (suck it) baby doll (kill it) Like all these... Sticks and stones and broken bones and glass and bricks and phones they will knock your ass if you can't find a single word that million coochycoos have not heard. If I called you darlin' I'd say it was the drink. If "baby" ever crossed my lips? I'd say "What does your wife think?"
