Simple (lyrics)

Scared

Tell me there’s no reason to be scared
tell me there’s no reason to be scared

Why shouldn’t I just admit
That I cannot count on hope
Why can’t I just admit
I’m not sure it’ll be alright

Locked Out In The Rain

What’s the point in anger?
What’s the point in pain?
Can anyone remember
When a fight was not in vain?

The lofty peaks of power
Don’t seem to change the day
I’m running up a tower
At the bottom I will stay

I feel so powerless
There’s nothing I can do
To make a difference

In my darkest hour
I see worlds a-crashing
Without reference to opinion

What was the point in schooling?
It sure wasn’t any fun
Now I’m messing and a-fooling
Shirking from the sun

From the power stuffed crusaders
To the governers who teach
I wish they would just leave us
And let us write the speech

I feel so powerless
There’s nothing I can do
To make a difference

In my darkest hour
I see worlds a-crashing
Without reference to opinion

What’s the point in anger?
What’s the point in pain?
What’s the point in anything
When you’re locked out in the rain?

The Sea’s Edge

You stand by the sea’s edge
Seagulls howling in in your ear
Savage waves gash
There is no reason to be here

And you could drown right now
The fish would taste your salty tears
Another painful loner
Who lost out to future’s fear

But the seconds turn
You could feel okay tomorrow
When the deed is done
No-one will ever know
What could have been

You kick the shallow water
And think of friends you’ve lost
Most are still around somewhere
But you’ll always feel the cost

And you remember this is winter
When spring appears pain will turn to fire
Savage thoughts will bite
You’ll be less use than broken wire

But the seconds turn
You could feel okay tomorrow
When the deed is done
No-one will ever know
What could have been.

Simple

Listen to me he says
Listen to me
For I have the key he says
If you’ll just follow me

Well what are you waiting for?

But nothing is so simple
Nothing is so simple
As it seems

They kiss and they cuddle
Take turns to undress
They’ve both found a reason
To live in a mess

Contentment accomplished

But nothing is so simple
Nothing is so simple
As it seems

I said this to you
There’s not much I can do
But leave you to stew
Hope you come through

Loneliness haunts me
It stalks and it shoots
I have isolation
In the dephts of my roots

What’s there to live for?

But nothing is so simple
Nothing is so simple
As it seems.

It May As Well Have Never Happened

I trusted you I thought you had some time for me
I really thought you were quite strong politically
But people they just come and go so hard and fast
I should have known that you would never let it last

It may as well have never happened
I may as well have never cared

The world was thrust on me and I had overload
And you just leapt upon my back and there you rode
Until you’d had enough then you just ran away
Leaving me with thoughts that even now don’t go away

It may as well have never happened
I may as well have never cared

You and your politics were’nt really side by side
You’d speak your prose then you wuold lock it deep inside
You and your gang you liked outrageous states of mind
But method in the madness was so difficult to find

It may as well have never happened
I may as well have never cared.

Fun

What’s the point
In feeling sad
When feeling sad
Makes me feel bad

I may as well pretend
I may as well pretend I’m having fun

They call me one down man
Well I’m no down man
Misery ain’t in my plan

I’m gonna just pretend
I’m gonna just pretend I’m having fun

Well here I go
Going with the flow
I don’t know if there’s any point

But I may as well pretend
I may as well pretend I’m having fun

I’m gonna just pretend
I’m gonna just pretend I’m having fun.

Too Far Away

What will I do
When no-one’s there to
Protect me and hide me from danger?

What will I do
To keep getting through
To stop myself going flatter?

Will I give in to the blues?

It’s too far away
Too far away

What will I do
When love don’t come through
When I have no-one to call on?

What will I do
When there’s no you
To tell me you know how I feel?

Will I want to end it all?

It’s too far away
Too far away

Make Sure You Know Where Your Feet Are

Don’t tell me who you’re gonna be
Don’t tell me that you’re going to be free
I’ve got experience
But treat me tenderly

Don’t tell me ’bout your fleeting fame
Don’t tell me that you’ll have a famouse name
I’ve got innocence
But I want my eyes to see

Make sure you know where your feet are
Make sure you know where they are

Don’ tell me ’bout your pretty face
I’m worried that you’ve gone to outer space
I care nothing
For the front you put in front of me

Don’t tell me of your many skills
No skills could cure my many ills
I care nothing
For talents flaunted cynically

Make sure you know where your feet are
Make sure you know ehere they are

Don’t tell me of a paradise
It makes me feel just like ice
Who needs paradise
When I have peace of mind

Don’t tell me about number one
Being at the top don’t seem like fun
Who cares what people say
As long as life feels kind

Make sure you know where your feet are
Make sure you know where they are.

That Sound

Tell me
Tell me can you hear it?
Tell me
Tell me can you feel it?
Tell me
Tell me can you hear it?

People who are strangers
Could be lovers in another world
A stranger could be your lover
In another world

A mountain might fall on you
But only if you haven’t a clue
That it’s going to

Tell me
Tell me can you hear it?
Tell me
Tell me can you feel it?
Tell me
tell me can you hear it?

Those who are lovers
Could be killers in another time
Your lover could be your killer
In another time

Tell me
Tell me can you hear it?

There are people in the world
Say we’ve got to fix the world today
Others say they’ll be left to die
Anyway

Sometimes a mountain’s gonna get you
And you can’t move an inch
Much as you’d like to

Tell me
Tell me can you hear it?
Tell me
Tell me can you feel it?
Tell me
Tell me can you hear it?
