All Lines

It hurts me so when she says nothing, I really feel like dying
It is time for confessing it all,
It is time for you to laugh instead of crying
It is time for you to stop all of your sobbing
It just ain't right. (2)
It just brings sorrow, let it wait.
It keeps me and feeds me and helps me survive.
It knows no motivations, no sect or organisation,
It knows no one religion,
It made me free , but that was in another time
It makes my life complete
It might hit you on a sunny afternoon (2) (3)
It might turn into a steady job.
It never fails.
It never really showed, you kept the secret deep inside
It only complicates your life.
It only knows what it knows, photographs, video and the printed word (2) (3)
It only shows what the world already knows
It only takes a moment sometimes
It ought to make me happy, but it just makes me want to cry.
It really feels like Summer's gone.
It really feels like, feels like Summers gone.
It rocks my bed; it shakes my light.
It rots your heart, it gets to your soul,
It says a lot for one
It seems like all the world is fighting
It seems there's more to life than just to live it.
It should go 100 miles an hour,
It should have been a laugh, it should have been fun,
It soon fades away
It starts me thinking about the things you said
It stops his dream and as he turns his head
It sure beats cocaine
It sure beats quaaludes
It takes two sides to know it's true,
It takes you up and brings you down
It turned him to the booze,
It turned into a two-headed transplant,
It was a long time ago, but I want you to know
It was a matter of fact that when I paid all my tax
It was almost enough to contemplate suicide.
It was always my ambition
It was bounding, it was hot
It was cool and easy
It was dark, it was dirty
It was great, so great
It was handed down this century and he swore that it was true
It was handed down this century and I swear that it is true.
It was just a holiday romance
It was just a mistake
It was just a momentary glance
It was just another factory
It was so good to be.
It was such a tragedy,
It was the biggest house in the neighborhood.
It was the summit of my long career,
It was there I saw the hilltop
It wasn't lust, it wasn't rape,
It wasn't the pressure,
It will last forever.
It will make or break him so he's got to buy the best,
It won't take sides with anyone
It won't work here and it didn't work there but

Julian's over budget, now he's really got to hustle,
Julian is out there looking at locations,
Julie, Julie, I hope that you're still single
Julie, Julie, oh my mystery Julie Finkle (2)

Just a dirty old shack
Just a holiday romance (2) (3)
Just a holiday romance. (2)
Just a quiet city sport
Just an illusion. (2) (3) (4)
Just an ordinary man.

Just be sure that they're contributing their all
Just because all of the plumbing
Just because they gave you life, they can't stop if you grow,
Just broke him in two
Just come back where I came from,
Just for a while
Just give me some security,
Just give me those plain hot potatoes
Just goes to show what you can achieve
Just how lonely my life would be (2)
Just how much you do for me
Just in case someone thought they had missed it, (2)
Just in time for the dinner gong--ding dong.
Just like a gypsy or a refugee
Just like a rollercoaster
Just like a yo-yo on a string.
Just like an ape man
Just like everyone else.
Just like I've heard it all somewhere before.
Just like the jacket I wear
Just like the Pally on a Saturday.
Just like the stain on my tie
Just miles and miles
Just moving on, suddenly gone and so unexpectedly
Just open your ears and follow your nose
Just puts another inch of make-up on her face
Just remember all of the things that we've done right
Just remember all the good times that you had.
Just round the corner from old Soho
Just show some civility.
Just sit back and take his abuse.
Just sitting down by the riverside,
Just sitting down quietly drinking a beer
Just sitting in the midday sun,
Just soaking up that currant bun, (2) (3)
Just some peace of mind
Just surviving (2)
Just surviving with an emotion plan
Just to add to my despair.
Just to help to pay the weekly rent
Just to impress anyone who listens while my art school babe
Just to keep his little mama satisfied
Just to please his mother-in-law
Just to prove that they really existed,
Just to prove that they really existed.
Just to prove that your conscious is white and bright.
Just to proved that it really existed.
Just to put a little shine on his shoes (2)
Just to show that they love one another.
Just two people having a beer
Just two people trying to get by
Just want to give myself a little more time (2)

Keep it clean. (2) (3) (4)
Keep it superficial before feelings can start
Keep looking for your love (Woohooh hoohooh hooh)
Keep playing, boys, keep playing
Keep your collars white and clean,
Keep your head, keep ahold
Keeps hanging around and polluting the air
Keeps me sane, feel alive,
Keeps on invading my privacy,
Keeps you together, it's the state of the national health
Kick his shin or tread on his face, (2)
Kill all the left-wing intellectuals,
Killer's eyes (2)
Killing reason on the way.
Killing time (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9)
Killing time, nowhere to go
Kiss me with one ray of light from your lazy old sun (2)
Knock down the walls,
Knockin' on the back door,
Know all the formulas and vital statistics
Knowing love has drifted away.
Knowing that I don't belong.

Lazing on a sunny afternoon. (2) (3) (4) (5)
Lazy old sun (2) (3) (4)

Leave the sun behind me, and watch the clouds as they sadly pass me by
Leavin' on sailin' ships for far and distant shores. (2) (3)
Led her to a life of crime,
Left it all for a new location (2)
Left your old home town

Let's sing for the old country (2)
Let's sing it loud with feeling (2)
Let's stay together,

Let me rock you, hold you, (2)
Let me take you on a little trip (2) (3)
Let me tell you 'bout a girl I know, (2)
Let out a yell and no one replied.
Let righteousness prevail.
Let the noise be like the sunset, and slowly fade away. (2)
Let the tension out or it will build and build inside
Let the tension out, or it will surely kill
Let the whole world know I'm in love
Let them feel that they're important to the cause
Let us smile, wipe away all the frowns.
Liberals dream of equal rights,
Liberals shout and cause concern
Liberation is ours to find
Lies! Lies! I did it to help the nation
Life after breakfast
Life ain't so happy in your little Shangri-la
Life could get you when you're unaware.
Life gets more and more...
Life goes on and on and on. (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
Life goes on. (2)
Life grinds on day after day.
Life is a crooked game,
Life is a road, it's a motorway (2)
Life is cheap people take it at no cost
Life is easier now.
Life is easier, so much easier,
Life is full of work and blunder.
Life is just a cliché.
Life is like a school,
Life is only a moving picture (2) (3)
Life is only what you conjure.
Life is only what you make out
Life is only what you wonder.
Life is only... (2) (3) (4)
Life is overated, life is complicated,
Life is so complicated.
Life is so easy when your record's hot.
Life is so incredibly dull,
Life keeps using me, keeps on abusing me, mentally and physically.
Life means nothing to you, (2) (3)
Life on the road. (2)
Life will hit you (2)
Life will hit you when you least expect it.
Life will still go on.
Lift yourself out of the doldrums
Light the fuse and start eruptin'
Like "why" or "how" or "what am I doing it for?"
Like a bright and silken sheen.
Like a Degas ballerina.
Like a great white balloon.
Like a gypsy I was born to roam
Like a mindless flock of sheep
Like a momentary loss of sight (2)
Like a pack of cards,
Like a seed that is sewn
Like a soldier on parade
Like a wanderer with no fixed abode
Like a willow tree.
Like a yo-yo. (2) (3) (4) (5)
Like an actor on a movie screen,
Like but I know you won't. You've all been watching too much
Like everybody else (like everybody else), (2) (3)
Like everybody else, (2) (3)
Like everybody else. (2)
Like everybody else?
Like millions of other husbands and wives.
Like old Mother Hubbard
Like somebody fired a gun
Like the boy I used to know.
Like the last of the good ol' choo-choo trains,
Like the last of the good ol' puffer trains, (2)
Like the smell of perfume, or lipstick on my collar
Like watching an old movie
Like wildfire it spreads through the nation (2)
Like you've lost your way
Like you sold me out.
Like you talking to me
Like you want me to be.
Liked to get around, mixing with all the stars
Listen to my heartbeat (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7)
Listen to my heartbeat lalalala lalalala
Listen to my heartbeat, slow but clean
Listening to both sides.
Lit the fuse but can't retire
Little child playing with a yo-yo.
Little children who are good
Little darlin',
Little girl don't notice me
Little girl I was so mistaken
Little girl, come play beneath my window
Little girls and boys, didn't ask to be born
Little man's weak and big man's strong, (2) (3)
Little Miss Queen of Darkness (2) (3) (4) (5)
Little princess certainly grown,
Live all your life according to a plan.
Live and learn, at least we try
Live and let live
Live and let your troubles pass.
Live by the Good Book (2)
Live by the rules the best way you can.
Live in total fantasy
Live life see it through
Live life, day to day,
Live life, you gotta live life
Live this life of luxury, (2) (3)
Lived a lonesome caveman
Livin' double lives.
Livin' my life on the road.
Livin' next to me.
Living by the book (2) (3)
Living in a little tin wonderland (2)
Living in a world where the flesh is cheap.
Living in it, eating in it, sleeping in it
Living like you just begun.
Living on a planet full of emptiness
Living on a thin line, (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8)
Living on a thin line.
Living on coconuts growing on the trees
Living on credit and overdrawn interest
Living on the edge of starvation
Living out a total misconception,
Living out someone else's dream.
Living this way, each day is a dream.
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola (2) (3) (4)
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola (2)
Lock inside a prison
Lock your doors and stay inside (2)
Lock your doors and stay inside.

Lola looked at me and said, "ooh you look so weird."

London, London, through the dark alley-ways and passages of London, London (2)
Lonely cries within a sound.
Lonely spinsters dream of dating Roger Moore or Steve McQueen.
Lonely voices in the dark. (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
Long ago he was a working man
Long ago in my life story.
Long ago life was clean
Long ago there was a working man
Long ago we were all working men
Long as I can see that girl of mine (2) (3)
long distance, long distance, long distance, long distance (2) (3)
Long time ago, (2) (3)
Longing for you, one and only
Look a little on the sunny side (2) (3) (4)
Look a little on the sunny side. (2)
Look all around the world (2)
Look around the world (2)
Look around you and see the people settle down,
Look at all the busy people this way, that way, everywhere
Look at all the looneys and the sad eyed failures
Look at all the losers and the mad eyed gazers
Look at all the people around me,
Look at all the people,
Look at all the young conservatives (2) (3)
Look at all the young conservatives. (2)
Look at all those moving pictures
Look at me, look at you
Look at that lady dancing around with no clothes
Look at that lady she got silver all over her face,
Look at that looney
Look at their strange behavior
Look at us here today
Look at your ego, watch it go, up and down,
Look for me baby (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12)
Look in the mirror and (2)
Look in the paper, what do I see,
Look in the sea
Look out, look out, look out.
Look towards mine. (2)
Lookin' at another sign for another town
Lookin' for my baby, she's not around (2)
Lookin' in the sky, for a gap in the clouds,
Looking as pretty as a picture
Looking at another setting sun
Looking at the new frontier
Looking at the street down below.
Looking for a final solution
Looking for her child in the big black smoke,
Looking for my baby
Looking for somewhere to fit in
Looking for the old trad band
Looking for the overnight.
Looking for the working man's café
Looking for you
Looking hard for something, but you never saw the sign
Looking in a window on a rainy day.
Looking in the gutter, watching the trash go flowing by.
Looking in the mirror wondering, "well,"
Looking out my hotel window,
Looking so neat
Looking their best in their summer dresses,
Looks like he's standing on a rainbow
Looks like we're in for heavy weather
Looks the same as something's wrong.
Loosen up your muscles
Lost a lot of good friends along the way
Lost and found, just in time (2)
Lost between tomorrow and yesterday,
Lots of talking with nothing to say
Love's full of fears, bruises and tears,
Love and peace instead of a collision
Love can be a pleasure or nothing but a chore.
Love can be exciting, it can be a bloody bore.
Love can be like a dull routine,
Love can mess you around,
Love her till my dying day (2)
Low budget (2) (3) (4) (5)
Low budget sure keeps me on my toes
Low-life zero mentality
Lyin' awake in a cold, cold sweat,
Lying on the beach with my back burned rare,

- M -

Ma and Pa look back at all the things they used to do
Mad modified the population,
Made a lot of conversation, talked a lot of weather,
Made a man that's totally programmed,
Made her blood run cold.
Make a noise with boys and girls of the nation
Make a sale, ring the bell
Make it fast, make it fast.
Make it last, make it last.
Make sure it's prime time and on a Saturday night.
Make them understand
Make what I want and play what I want (2)
Make you smile and take your blues away
Make you taller if you want it
Make your hair grow longer if you need it.
Make your mind up, try to forget her
Make yourself a cuppa tea
Makes me want to sigh (2) (3) (4)
Makes old Nelson grin
Makes, makes-a me want
Making decisions that affect no one.
Making love by candlelight,
Making their movies (2) (3) (4)
Mama (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13) (14) (15)
Mama always told me
Mama don't know where you've been. (2)
Mama oh mama, my dear Suzi too,
Mama would positively die
Mama, can you hear me call?
Mama, don't let him into here
Mama, I can hear all the sounds
Mama, I feel safe between these walls
Mama, I know that once upon a time
Mama, now you are showing all the signs
Mama, now you got the pains
Mama, now your ambition is mine
Mama, what I sense from outside
Man made the buildings that reach for the sky
Manners, I mean
Manufactured in a factory using cheap labor
Marketing say we gotta goal to chase
Marketing says we gotta merchandise
Marriage is a two-headed transplant,
Mass destruction and homicide,
Mass production in Saigon (2)
Massive reductions to stay alive. (2)
Massive reductions.
Maximum Consumption sure keeps running me down
Maybe a famous rock star will fly you away,
Maybe I stopped her from being free.
Maybe it's a sexual deviation
Maybe it's my shattered pride
Maybe Papa's getting pressure from his peers
Maybe she took me for somebody else
Maybe something special's gonna happen,
Maybe that looney knows what it's all about
Maybe there was something missing in me.
Maybe they're afraid to
Maybe they're scared
Maybe think about my family, 'cause socially could be
Maybe this is my lucky day.
Maybe, baby
Me and my baby's gonna get on a train that's gonna take us away,
Meanwhile back in commuter city, another kid's packing her bags,
Meanwhile, I just drift away
Meanwhile, upstairs, they O.K.
Memories I cannot recall,
Men and women boys and girls (2)
Men like you will always come and go, but the people will go on forever. Take one final look at the past Flash. Enjoy it, because you have no future.
Met a girl called Lola and I took her back to my place
Met a girl, fell in love, glad as I can be (2)
Middle-aged bankers crack their backs and wish they were young and in their teens,
Might as well have died.
Might trigger a repeat of phobia
Millionaires are things of the past
Millions of birds
Millions of people swarming like flies 'round Waterloo underground

Mix with his workmates.

Money's rare there's none to be found
Money's scarce and that ain't funny
Money and Corruption (2)
Money buys you time and people listen,
Money can't breathe and money can't see,
Money can't cover up the fact you're getting older every day
Money can't run and money can't walk,
Money can buy a smile and make life worth living.
Money money
Money talks and there's no doubt about it
Money talks and we're the living proof (2)
Money talks and we're the living proof,
Money talks and we can't live without it,
Money talks and, baby, when you've been bought
Money talks you out of your self-respect,

My baby's got the most deplorable taste, (2)
My baby calls me on the telephone
My baby woke me up this mornin'
My bags are packed, I guess it's time for me to go.
My bank went broke and my well ran dry.
My big day, it was the biggest day of my life.
My eyes are sore and my nose is on fire
My friend (2) (3)
My friend told me the story and I'll pass it on to you (2)
My frightened reflection in a dark corridor
My girlfriend's packed her bags
My girlfriend's run off with my car,
My headache's improved but my back really hurts,
My hostility for you defies description
My house (2)
My ice cream cone just melted in the heat.
My lady's got a sort of strange fascination,
My life's been empty since I went
My lips are dry, I wander around with a ridiculous grin
My little child is going solo. (2)
My little child, you're going solo. (2)
My little sister's screaming, and stamping on the ground.
My love for you has turned to hate
My love is like a ruby that no one can see,
My love will never die,
My makeup is dry and it clags on my chin
My mama said she can't understand me
My mama says she can't understand me
My neurosis returned, I'm a wreck once again
My next door neighbour's totally snapped
My old town was good to me
My only chance in my situation,
My perm washed out it just got flushed down the drain
My poor demented mind is slowly going.
My reason's gone, close of play
My sister's married and she lives on an estate.
My sister always did.
My sister should have come in at midnight,
My sister stood and cried.
My sister went there on a Saturday.
My sketch pad at the ready, my eager charcoal in my hand
My soul's too far gone to be saved
My soul?
My stomach's upset and I don't feel well,
My stuffed up head's killing all of my desire
My supersonic rocket ship.
My supersonic ship's at your disposal (2)
My sweet Rosemary.
My thought just weigh me down,
My throat's dry now and I'm starting to perspire
My turn to get pushed in the face
My video shop
My wife is getting hungry
My word of mouth has stated my case,
My world came crashing down, it shook me to the core.
My world is turning upside-down.
My world was three foot, seven inch tall

Name names and every line
Napalm hydrogen bombs biological warfare,
Narrowly missing the planets and stars.
Nations crumble and empires fall
Nations try to gravitate
Nature gave us all these toys to play with
Nature sure gave you such a beautiful nose.
Need I announce myself? Am I such a stranger to you?

Nervous tension, man's invention (2) (3)
Nervous tension, man's invention,
Nervous tension, nervous tension, nervous tension
Nervous tension. nervous tension, nervous tension
Never gave I always took.
Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed to so few
Never seen New Orleans, Oklahoma, Tennessee,
Never to return
Never wanted to be like everybody else (2)
Never was much, never has been (2) (3)
New tomorrows till we meet again,
News of the world, tea and biscuits in bed.

No class distinction, no slums or poverty (2)
No class distinction, no slums or poverty,
No decision, no decision. (2) (3) (4)
No decision.
No escape from the state of confusion I'm in.
No harm was ever felt or ever meant
No longer jealous of her sister (2)
No matter how dull or simple you are
No matter how I try, it seems I'm too young to die.
No matter what I do or say,
No matter what you do,
No matter what your occupation is
No money coming in,
No more living in the past,
No more living in the past. (2)
No more looking back, (2)
No more looking back.
No need to feel sad now (2) (3)
No one bothered him
No one breaks promises the way that you do.
No one can find her, address unknown.
No one can penetrate me,
No one gives a damn.
No one here can hear my case.
No one hesitates at life or beats around the bush in Australia
No one knows where I'm going to
No one knows where I come from,
No one knows who I am.
No one listen, nobody listens, no one listens to me
No one listen, nobody listens, they ain't gonna listen to me
No one looked at me or touched me
No one will be safe,
No one will ever know (2)
No one will ever know,
No overtime nor favors done.
No play,
No point asking me because I haven't got a clue
No point asking me because I wasn't even there
No point screaming in space, you just can't hear a sound.
No profession. I didn't figure in their plans
No sight nor sound
No there ain't no cure for
No thoughts of my own, no mind or personality.
No time for affection,
No time for talking I got nothin' to say
No time to use the John, gotta keep a rollin' on.
No use runnin' 'round lookin' scared,
No you can't tell me why I am,
No you can't tell me why I am.
No! No! (2)
No! No! No! I can't stand this.
No, don't ever change from the way that you were (2) (3)
No, I hate it.
No, no, no, no, no (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
No, there's no way back
No, there's no way you can get by.
No, you can't be sad my darling
Nobody's gonna travel second class (2)
Nobody's got a chip on their shoulder
Nobody gives a damn anymore. (2) (3)
Nobody gives in case they lose face,
Nobody gives unless they receive,
Nobody gives, nobody gives, nobody gives.
Nobody gives. Nobody gives a damn any more.
Nobody gonna live their life for you (2)
Nobody gonna live your life for you
Nobody has to be any better than what they want to be
Nobody has to be hip
Nobody knows, "Try one of those."
Nobody listens and no one will understand. (2)
Nobody needs fortunes told anymore
Nobody needs to be out of sight. Out of sight.
Nobody noticed then we wanted to be free,
Nobody said it would last forever
Nobody visits, nobody grieves
Noise in the air, those traffic jams are everywhere.
Noise in the street, they're digging up the pavement.
Noise on noise, to cover up the noise.
Nomand and I are changing places
Non-stop machine
Nor has anybody else in the street
Nor political belief.
North and South, I feel that I'm a Londoner still (London, London)
Not a pocket calculator.
Not afraid to be alone (2)
Not content with taking Polaroids, they purchased all the property that they could find,
Not far away, (2) (3) (4) (5)
Not far away, not far away. (2)
Not far away. (2)
Not just a day,
Not just my friends, but their best friends too. (2)
Not knowing when
Not live apart.
Not much room, can I come out mother?
Not someone better,
Not someone good.
Not the Melody Maker want to interview me
Not today.
Nothing's permanent and nothing lasts,
Nothing in life is a permanent fixture (2) (3)
Nothing lasts forever,
Nothing lasts forever. (2) (3)
Now a voice from the queue shouts
Now all I've got are varicose veins.
Now all of my brothers are looking around
Now all that's left belongs to you.
Now all the lies are beginning to show,
Now all the lies have gone on too long,
Now all the politicians are running out of hope
Now another century nearly gone,
Now another leader says
Now cross those eyes.
Now everyone is a rival
Now God laid down the rules of life when he wrote those Ten Commandments
Now he'll say anything so his show don't flop
Now he's bought a gramophone on the never never
Now he's created a dance that everybody's trying to do.
