Just for my own reference, and sparked by people mentioning the Manics gig (and the favourite love songs poll), I'm going to post predictable song lyrics that I like in my journal.

Sigh, today is being unproductive. Ah well, there's always next week :-/



This Is Yesterday

Do not listen to a word I say
Just listen to what I can keep silent
The only way to gain approval
Is by exploiting the very thing that cheapens me

I stare at the sky
And it leaves me blind
I close my eyes
And this is yesterday

Someone somewhere soon will take care of you
I repent, I'm sorry, everything is falling apart
Houses as ruins and gardens as weeds
Why do anything when you can forget everything

I stare at the sky
And it leaves me blind
I close my eyes
And this is yesterday



A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

So many things in your life that you're bound to regret
"Why didn't I do that, why didn't I do this?"
So many chances you've lost that you'll never forget
"Why didn't I make it, why didn't I take it right there?"

The loneliest words you'll ever know: "If only, if only it was so"
The emptiest words that there'll ever be: "It could have been me, it could have been me"
The loneliest words you'll ever know: "If only, if only it was so"
The emptiest words that there'll ever be: "It could have been me, it could have been me"

You'll have to pay for it later if you don't get it when it's going for free
Believe me! Believe me!

A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
It's something that's always been so
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

And one of these nights you're gonna show me that you already know
There's a feast waiting for you and you never even gotten a taste
It's later than you think and a kiss is a terrible thing to waste


Iris

And I'd give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive

And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

Yay Iris, as a variety of people might say.

Although I've never thought Iris' lyrics stood up very well without the melody, which brings out a far more plaintive quality in them.

(Acoustic #3 and, in fact, most of the rest of the album Dizzy up the Girl also do a rather good job of setting the correct ambience, too).

Hmm. Speaking of themes supported by a collection of songs....(thought that there is no way I would share with anyone other than you, emailed)
