A time, a place your smile, displaced by passing slurs, and loaded words those provocateurs, will never learn but you know, you have only, to cast away the things they say those charlatans will surely bend and break the proof, my youth my lies, my truth and every word, and every way you try to say, that you’re afraid of loneliness i’m prone to this, to baby you and I have but to realise our love will get us by
2.
You said, I I wanna know you by heart I said go, right from the start tell me all, the gory details then i’ll know, if plan A should fail to take you away from it all and show you how tall, you can be Oh it was fun while it lasted but know you’ve, gotten past it all the lies, you recited and my love, unrequited at least you could have waited till our lust started fading but your trust isn’t all that it seems You said I, I wanna know you by heart I said it’s you and me babe let’s never be apart but the story you sold really showed how cold you could be

Dance with me, Answer me with a sonnet of your sorrows take my hand, coz ill be your man we’ll never have to borrow Or steal or starve no it’s not that hard if you’ll just dance with me walk with me, talk with me I’m only flesh and marrow I’m just a call away I’m just a plane by day if you’ll just dance with me these lips aint just for talking and these boots aint just for walking wont you dance with me Walk me round the room it’s a way to do away with all tomorrows pending doom I’m not half as drunk as you first thought so hold me close and i’ll just rock you back, and forth if you’d just dance with me Oh dance with me, answer me take a fleeting chance on me We aint getting any younger so let me dip and spin ya wont you dance with me aren’t you tired of my gawking i’ve not the time for talking wont you dance with me these lips aint just for talking and these boots aint just for walking wont you dance with me sure I’m a lonely fool and i aint that cool but i’ll walk you though it dance with me

She’s got her mother’s pride but not her strength and the length she’ll go to win an argument is long enough but not strong enough for me there’s no easing into these things you know the hurt that loss brings So I, gave myself, to the sure things the simple and the bored things And my, wasted wealth, on the bought things those entertaining mornings when I Can’t see past the door where my tie is hung above my trousers balled up on the floor and she’s, rifling through her drawers for a pretty little under-thing that’ll make me beg for more You know she’s got a busy day and I’d really love to stay but i got shows to stop and pills to pop so i really must be going babe Well I’m wasted on fidelity, as i edge upon insanity but its just beer batter and rhapsody for me I’ll take lacy covered solace in the hope that she might promise all the things that she had mentioned you can imagine the potential So I, gave myself, to the sure things the simple and the bored things And my, wasted wealth, on the bought things those entertaining mornings when I Cant see past the door where my tie is hung above my trousers balled up on the floor and she’s, rifling through her drawers for a pretty little under-thing that’ll make me beg for more You know she’s got a busy day and I’d really love to stay but i got shows to stop and rolls to rock so i really must be going babe on the bored things, the simple and the sure things and my, wasted wealth on the bought things I’ve drowned myself, in the sure thing, the simple and the bored things and my, wasted wealth on the bought things Those entertaining mornings with what’s her face I’ve drowned myself, in the sure things I’ve drowned myself, in the sure things

Jane walks back and forth from all the biggest parts of town She’s got a longer stride than many but she’s always looking down because her gaze is such, that it weighs too much on the passers by She like’s em tall and matte, with at least half a brain and her barren chat keeps them coming back again but her long stride and her leopard hide is all i ever see There she goes in her trade mark clothes away again on her private plane baby stay with me put on those dungarees and if you’re going out to smoke save one for me my big town girl oh my big town girl she’s forever in a rush between no and maybe one time i think i tried it on but you know she’s a lady oh she’s got her way and thinks I’m ok to be her pal You know I’ve never had the time to wait around for a dame but if i knew that we could make it I’d wait around for jane could i suit her better than that dark blue sweater? probably not But here she goes in her trademark clothes away again on her private plane baby stay with me put on those dungarees and if you’re going out to smoke save one for me bright lights, big city i’ve got the top down so do your hair up pretty babe Big Town Girl (cont.) desert palms and the silver screen i’ve got a valet ticket so wont you ride with me? and if it’s all the same babe lets get outta the game give me half a chance because your due for some romancing neath the bright lights, big city i’ve got the top down so do your hair up pretty babe bright lights, big city i’ve got the top down so do your hair up pretty babe my big town girl, oh my big town girl

Disposable 03:37
Well you can use me up and throw me out coz i won’t keep and there’s no doubt the momentary images, you can get from other cartridges The empty shell around my core is all you need and nothing more because I’m not the kind you need to keep my boyish charms are just skin deep you can get me in a pack of two if you even care, and don’t wait up coz i was there for nothing more thanks to give to you the lasting thought, the only truth that I am just a passer through so throw me out as the others do i’m useful but I’m disposable I’m disposable See I am just a vessel for the real thing, the better score the piece that you’ll take home with you and tell your friends about the fool who talks about the love he has for falling hard and holding hands but that’s ok, it’s like i said I’ve played my cards, I’ve made may bed So pick me up, I’m on the shelf I’m pretty cheap, i tell myself It’ll be ok, I have my health I’ve kicked the fags and I’m gaining wealth You’ll be done with me before you know and I’ll be gone, my laces tie my flash is on I’m ready for that lonely knock I’ll hold them close I’ll be their rock but when they’re done they wont forget don’t take away the special bits to roll them up and take them down to your local man, yeah he’s around He’ll develop me in just one hour and that’ll be the last you ever see of me so throw me on the finished heap because I’m not the kind you need to keep see I am just a passer through so throw me out as the others do i’m useful but I’m disposable I’m disposable So don’t stop doing what you’re doing because you can get a new one and I’m getting pretty fluent at being temporary, I’m sure I’m one of many and I’m just as shit as any other brand And I’m Disposable I’m disposable I’m disposable

You know I’m only getting stronger by the minute baby I’m just a sonnet away from the day when I’m standing at your door You know I’m only gonna stop you for a minute babe So watch me take it away I’ve got a bonafide leopard hide jacket baby I’l let you wear it all day if you say that you’ll be mine This aint a take your time, sip your lime soda kind of offer baby so try it on, Or watch me take it away Or watch me take it away now watch me take it away now watch me take it away now watch me take it I aint got time for your perversions I spend my time transcribing versions of the truth and don’t you blame it on my youth coz tomorrows sons and daughters could teach you and me a thing or two and who, are to evade, the plans that i paved, with my young and vulgar mind just gimme the time just gimme the time Honey I’m certified, and I’m qualified so stand by my side Baby baby watch me take it away now watch me take it away or watch me take it away or watch me take it away now watch me take it away now watch me take it away or watch me take it away now watch me take it away now watch me take it away

And though i tried to reason, with my bottle and my mind only to feel my will sink lower and to partly pass the time thinking of you and that bear trap it grew heavy on my will and ever thinned I felt like half a man with half a breath and i knew i couldn’t win weren’t it for you but I don’t know if i can stand by and hear you tell me it’d be nice to see you am I the only one that knows why and I don’t know if i can stand by and hear you tell me it’d be nice to see you am I the only one that knows why but who am I to question, Who am I to ask it isn’t fair i gave you all of it and told you it would last, it wasn’t true and i pleaded with my morals and i begged that they’d subside for you drew from me what i know that i could only hide from you but I don’t know if i can stand by and hear you tell me it’d be nice to see you am I the only one that knows why and I don’t know if i can stand by and hear you tell me it’d be nice to see you am I the only one that knows why but you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’ve only got love to wait for you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for? you and I we’re we’re holding on but what for?

Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you You’re all there is, all that there was and all there’ll ever be Baby it’s you, so tell me that I’ll do I’m only half as good as the sum of my mistakes the cut of my tuxedo and the icing on my cake now i’ll hang up my sharking shoes on the arrow through my heart for your archers aim is straight and true wont you let me play the part and if you play yours to and wear my ring for the time being sure it’s shy a couple diamonds but you know what it means That you’re all there is all that there was and all there’ll ever be Baby it’s you, so tell me that I’ll do Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you and i wear my confession on the inside of my arm it reads of total, tender and tragic capitulation to your charms oh my waining drinking problem, is nearly gone but not forgotten but you don’t seem to mind, because I sing to you more often and it goes.. You’re all there is, all that there was and all there’ll ever be Baby it’s you, so tell me that I’ll do Baby it’s you, so tell me that I’ll do Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you Baby it’s you
