Eleven Kinds Of Loneliness


1992
Produced by Tanita Tikaram.


You Make The Whole World Cry

Young thing - saw it
And calls his brother
And brother's angry
You make the whole world cry
You can't tell me
I rid my secret
You can't own me
You make the whole world cry
Young thing downing
And it maybe hurting
And it maybe the best day you ever had

And I've gone courting
And I'm just chasing

But baby, you make the whole world cry
Yes, you make the world cry
I tell you honestly
Yeah, I tell you honestly

So we go dancing
And you start laughing
And I start choosing
A room to hide in
But I'm not hiding
And I'm not running, anymore

so it's so good
And it's so bad
And it's walk
To the end of you're so sure of yourself

Baby you make the whole world cry
Yeah, you make the whole world cry
Yeah, you make the whole world cry
Yeah, you make the whole world cry, cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry, cry, cry, cry, cry, cry

Elephant

Elephant
Ain't going home
Ain't going home
To be your friend

Elephant
Ain't going home
To start a fire
To be your friend

Elephant
Ain't going home
Ain't going out
To start a fight

Elephant
To start a fire
To be your friend
It isn't right

Elephant
Hate being short
Hate being long
Hate being lost

Hate being round
Hate being round about your lost cause

Elephant
Ain't getting wired
Ain't getting lied to all the time

Elephant
I can't hear
I can't hear
The one you want

But it makes more sense
To be near the riverside
Yeah, it makes more sense
'Cos the grass grows high
It makes more sense
To be near to you baby

The very, very, very, very sad truth is
I never think sensibly
Thr very, very, very, very, very sad truth is
I never think
Bothers me

Elephant
Getting tired
Getting lied to
All the time

Elephant
You make it
You make it seem
So available

Elephant
Ain't going down
Ain't going down
To take a look

To take a look
Would bring me down
Would bring me down

Trouble

I'm not there
If ever I was there
I'm sure I was never so bold
If ever I spoke so - I'm sure it's trouble

Not my trouble
I'm not so sure if I control this laughter
Everything herafter
Everything is bound to be trouble
Yeah, not my trouble
Trouble
No, not my trouble
If I was to blame
I'm sure we'll work it out
If I was to blame
I'm sure it was about

Trouble
Not my trouble
It's not my game
It's not mine
It's not my game

There is a tired face
A hiding to nothing face
A face that you keep to explore this trouble
You trouble me more and more
Trouble me more

I'm not certain
I ever could explain
Never certain
But I do need to explain

Trouble
Not my trouble
Trouble
It's not mine

I Grant You

When we were young and you pretended
You were almost bothered as me
Does it make you sad?
Almost sorry as me?
When we were young and you pretended
That the world was ours - how we see
Does it make you sad?
And make you sorry?
Almost sorry as me

I grant you
Time can make a fool of all of us
These words once mine - hang on, hang on
And yet they don't belong
Mmm. They don't belong

Now we get old and you've defended
All the world as it likes to be

Does it make you sad?
Does it make you sorry?
Almost sorry for me
Can you get lost inside a feeling?
Does you almost feel for me?
Does it make you sad?
And make you sorry?
Almost sorry for me?

I grant you
Shine and scare the fool inside of us
These words once mine drag on, drag on
And yet they do belong
Mmm. They do belong

When we were young - and you were grounded
Didn't you ever want to go free
Soes it make you sad?
And make you sorry?
You're not a fool like me

When we were young - and we were running
Didn't you ever want to run free?
Didn't it make you sad?
And make you sorry?
To wander whio you are
I grant you are
I grant you

Heal You

Baby, there'll be time
Time alone - this tired old body
Time alone - and tired old body
Will be healed
Baby, they'll be blessed
Just a walk away
Just a walk away, baby
Heal you, heal you

My oh my, my oh my
My oh my, my oh my

Baby, there'll be me
Standing in the corner
Baby, there'll be me
Standing here for you
Heal you, heal you

And there'll be the day
All the days you pray for
Yeah, there'll be the day
All the days you pray for
Heal you, heal you

My oh my, my oh my
My oh my, my oh my

And the scent of you
Will be always ever
Was it always ever?
Heal you, heal you

To Drink The Rainbow

Can you Tell me?
Can you see it?
My eyes dreamt it
My eyes sent it a thousand pieces
'Course I love it
It makes me cold
Amongst the ashes
Drinking the rainbow

Can you tell me?
How to turn?
The very feelings, the very feelingd
That make me burn
The very music I have heard
Inside your heart
To drink the rainbow - I try very hard
To drink the rainbow - I try very hard

You should want me
To take along
The very seasons, the very seasons
I've waited on
The very music I have heard
Inside your heart
To drink the rainbow
I try very hard
To drink the rainbow
I try very hard

Can you show me?
Where it leads?
The very feelings, the very feelings
That make me bleed
The very music I have heard
Inside your heart
To drink the rainbow - I try very hard
To drink the rainbow - I try very hard
To drink the rainbow - I try very hard

Out On The Town

I'm
Just out
I'm
Just out
Of my bed
And if I
Need some money
I will go
Get some money

And if I'm
I'm just out
I'm just out
On the town
And if I need some money
I will go get some money

And I
I'm just down
I'm just down
On my luck
And if I
Need another
I will go
Find a lover

And if things
They work out
I'll continue
To seek
Happiness is
Happiness is
Happiness is
All around and worth the waiting
All around and worth the waiting

And I
I'm just out
I'm just out to friends and family
Well I
I'm unpaid
I'm not skilled
I'm not scared

I'm just out
On the town
As the town it seems so
Funny sometimes
How can you smile?
When you're down
On your luck

And if things
They work out
I'll continue
To seek
Happiness is
Happiness is
Happiness is
All around and worth the waiting
All around and worth the waiting

It blows my mind
To think you're mine
It blows my mind
To think you're mine

And I'm
Just out
Of the times
That we spent together
Oh, I
Always count, all the dreamtime
And I
Am not out
On the town
For any funny feeling
I
I'm just down
On my luck
I am down
On my luck
I am down
On my luck
I am down

Hot Stones

Beat up English
In a beat up town
And I'm beat up black and blue
Oh, I do not have the energy
And I'm beat up street
And I'm beat up tight
And we've been so drawn together, each other
I do not have the energy

And wisdom
Trip over again
Wisdom
Trip over again
You beat it
Stepping stones
Or standing up
I'm shivering on stones
Hot stones

In a wipe down England
With it's worn out grace
With a picture postcard, baby, hallelujah
I love your face
In a wise up England
To a wake up place
Oh, I do not like the way you shower me
No, I do not like the way you shower me
And I do not have the energy

In a beat up England
With a beat up face
It's a why oh why did I ever get lost in this?
It's the tired old hands
Come to tire me out
And the tired old hands
They yearn to shout
But I do not have the energy

Men & Women

You give
More than me
And you live like
Men and women
In the shade
More than me
Yes, you hide like
Men and women
Men and women
Jealous, born
And young at heart
And these walls like
Men and women
Men and women

Yeah - yeah
Yeah - yeah

And chance alone
Are gifts I give
And watered down
To men and women
Men and women

And the drag past
And the walk past
And the days last long
And your eyes shine
And I see mine in them
And I see myself
Men and women
Men and women

Any Reason

My babe lets the moonshine
My babe likes to sail
When you need a reason
Baby's reason
My babe wants a show stopper
To come on board and dance
When there's reason
Any reason
Baby's reason
I can drive for miles and miles
I can drive for miles and miles around
My babe wants a warm coat
To keep him shuffling on
Just get along, just to get along
My babe wants to tell you
But talking don't seem fair

My babe needs a reason
Any reason
Any reason, any reason
Any place I'll drive you baby
Any place I'll drive you baby, yes

My babe wants the use of you
To really lose himself
My babe wants to see you
To see you help yourself
To any reason
Baby's reason
Any reason
My babe's sure a short boy
Although he thinks he's fine
Never greet a liar
'Cos any reason is any reason
Any reason is any reason
'Cos any reason
Is baby's reason
And any reason
Any reason's fine

Love Don’t Need No Tyranny

Love don't need no tyranny
Love to bring you down
When I'm older and forgiven
All forgiveness - must be living
Love don't need no tyranny
Want to bring me down
When I'm older and forgiven
All is easy - all forgiven
Can't be forced to stop this living - now

And what about your very second wind
And what about the new beginning
And what about the way you stare
And want it
Way you stare and feel
You want it

Love don't need no tyranny
Love to bring you down
When you're crying - it's not easy
It's not easy to be found
Love don't need no tyranny
Love to bring you down
When I'm laughing - always laughing
Keeping you in, keeping me in
Keeping going

And what about? The all time mover
And what about? The all time shiver
And what about?
I do believe you -when I need you
I must believe you

Love don't need no tyranny
Love to bring you down
When I'm sure - and not so sure
Needs assurance
Taste assurance
Love don't need no tyranny
Love to bring you down
Whe you're running - always running
Just to keep your face from turning
Always turning

The Way That I Want You

We're not talking
I'm not talking sensibly enough
You know the soul of a man is many coloured
Soul of a man one to another
Wants you another day

I'm not wishing on a star
Talk
The soul of a man is many coloured
Soul of a man wants you another
Another day

From the airport
To be by your side
From a reading
And that's the one
That hurts my pride
From the church yard
Into your trust
To the talk
That we must, we must rekindle
To the way I want you
To the way I don't want
Nothing from you
Nothing from you
Nothing from you

You know the soul of is man is many coloured
Soul of a man is many coloured
The soul of a man one to another
Want you another day
