Come of Age

No Hope

Well I could bore you with the truth
About an uneventful youth
Though you could get that wrap from someone else
And I could make an observation
If you want the voice of the generation
But I’m too self-absorbed to give it clout
And I, I don’t really care about
Anybody else when I haven’t got my own life figured out
‘Cause when you’re young and bored at 24
And you don’t know who you are no more

There’s no hope and it’s hard to come of age
I think it’s a problem
‘Cause they never go away
I know I am so self-obsessed
I guess but there’s no hope
And I hope it’s just a phase
Well, I’ll grow

Well I could look for inspiration
Find it in the job of an English nation
But wouldn’t that be cheap and ill-informed
And I could bet you don’t believe me
If I said it came from deep within me
But I promise you I’m telling you the truth

And I, I don’t really care about
Anybody else when I haven’t got my own life figured out
‘Cause when you’re 24 and young and bored
And don’t know who you are no more

There’s no hope and it’s hard to come of age
I think it’s a problem
‘Cause they never go away
I know I am so self-obsessed
I guess but there’s no hope
And I hope it’s just a phase
Well, I’ll grow

Well I wish I was comfortable in my own skin
But the whole thing feels like an exercise
And trying to be someone I would rather not be
I tried to second guess if you would be approving
I find my life ever so moving
Keen, wide-eyed and unassuming
Oh (okay)

There’s no hope but there’s desperately
No hope but there’s definitely
No hope if you don’t believe me
Oooooooh
Yeah, there is no hope but there’s desperately
No hope but there’s definitely
No hope if you don’t believe me

Ooooh but I, I don’t really care about
Anybody else when I haven’t got my own life figured out
‘Cause when you’re 24 and young and bored
And don’t know who you are no more

There is no hope  and it’s hard to come of age
I think it’s a problem
But they never go away
I know I am so self-obsessed
I guess but there’s no hope
And I hope it’s just a phase
Well, I’ll grow

I Always Knew

Down, down in my bones
Somewhere I’d never ever known
Right at the back of my head
It hit me like a beam of light
Hit me like a hook of the right
And I could’ve fell to the floor

‘Cause you talk to me and it comes off the wall
You talk to me and it goes over my head
So let’s go to bed before you say something real
Let’s go to bed before you say how you feel

‘Cause it’s you
Oh oh it’s always you
Oh oh I always knew
Oh oh it’s you

I try my best to unwind
Nothing on my mind but you
Oblivious to all that I’ll owe
I’m hanging on to what I don’t know
So let’s go to bed before you say something real
Let’s go to bed before you say how you feel

‘Cause it’s you
Oh oh it’s always you
Oh oh I always knew
Oh oh it’s you
And it’s you
Oh oh it’s always you
Oh oh I always knew
Oh oh it’s you

Well it’s you
Oh oh it’s always you
Oh oh I always knew
Oh oh it’s you
Oh I knew, oh I always knew
Yes I always knew
Oh oh it’s you

Teenage Icon

Oh look at me, so ordinary
No mystery with no great capabilities but
I could make out as if I had it but you know
God I’m so obvious and I should let it go
Oh I don’t know, ooooooh

I’m no teenage icon
I’m no Frankie Avalon
I’m nobody’s hero oooooooh

Reserved and shy, your average guy
No piercing stare, just out of shape with messy hair but
I always figured I was somebody and wait
And now I’m guessing that my moment must be late
‘Cause I’m here ooooooh

I’m no teenage icon
I’m no Frankie Avalon
I’m nobody’s hero oooooooh

I’m not magnetic or mythical
I’m suburban and typical
But I got it, I got it
I’m over on with it all

Seductive, charming way with words
So effortless not leather clad or dangerous but
I always did it like a real rebel would
I have a photo where John Lennon may have stood
Or so I’m told oooooh

I’m no teenage icon
I’m no Frankie Avalon
I’m nobody’s hero ooooooh

I’m no teenage icon
I’m no Frankie Avalon
I’m nobody’s hero ooooooh

All In Vain

Oh, you can’t hold a gun to my head
No, you can’t hold a gun to my head
Because baby, I would just refuse
Baby, I would just refuse

All in vain, all in vain
Well you don’t know how I feel and I can’t explain

Oh, you can’t hold a gun to my head
No, you can’t hold a gun to my head
Because baby, I would just refuse
Baby, I would just refuse

All in vain, all in vain
When I follow anything that takes my life
All in vain, all in vain
When I self-destruct for fun and I don’t know why

You might as well admit it, despite how you might see it
I’m never gonna waste my time with you
I don’t know how you’re feeling, you know you kinda blew it
I’m never gonna waste my time with you

Oh, you can’t hold a gun to my head
No, you can’t hold a gun to my head
Because baby, I would just refuse
Baby, I would just refuse

All in vain, all in vain
When I ate an appetite that I can’t refuse
All in vain, all in vain
Having been there, I would never go again

Ghost Town

I’ve been driving in my car
Trying to find some sign of life
No one’s about and it’s kinda creepy
It’s an understatement to say it’s sleepy

It’s a ghost town where no one goes
It’s a ghost town where no one goes

Well you think your town is pretty boring
Come and spend a day with me
I am asking real politely
I’m afraid to be alone

It’s a ghost town where no one goes
It’s a ghost town where no one goes

Apocalyptic, distressing, needs addressing and I’m guessing
Everybody likes to go no I don’t know and I don’t know if I’m the only one… I know, I know, I know

It’s a ghost town where no one goes
It’s a ghost town where no one goes

It’s a ghost town
Ghost town

Aftershave Ocean

Oh you have been struggling to see actuality
Actually, it doesn’t surprise me
And you wearing W.O.V.
Frozen to the core
I’m not wearing anything awful

But you are pulling the world over, wouldn’t you rather know
That I am overindulging you, it’s so easy though

You’re coming up for air
Happier down there
In your aftershave ocean
Lies, difficult to face
Floating out in space
In your aftershave ocean

I could be talking out of line, you could put me straight
And I’d say I don’t understand you
You’d say “oh, ignorance’s a bliss, come give me a kiss
Come give me a piece of your mind”

‘Cause you are pulling the world over, wouldn’t you rather know
That I am overindulging you, it’s so easy though

You’re coming up for air
Happier down there
In your aftershave ocean
Lies, difficult to face
Floating out in space
In your aftershave ocean

Oh you are pulling the world over, wouldn’t you rather know
That I am overindulging you, it’s so easy though

You’re coming up for air
Happier down there
In your aftershave ocean
I get water up my nose
I have to dry my clothes
In your aftershave ocean
Lies, difficult to face
Floating out in space
In your aftershave ocean

You’re coming up for air
Happier down there
In your aftershave ocean

Weirdo

I know I’m fucking moody
And I know I’m quite unkind
I know I’m kinda distant
But you’re always on my mind
And you’ll imply that I’m apathetic
Right to the bone

And I don’t wanna let it go
You know I’m not a weirdo
No, I don’t wanna let it go
You know I’m not a weirdo

I guess I’m quite controlling
And I’m insecure
And I know you’d like it better
If I opened up some more
But I don’t even know if I could look you
Straight in the eye
Oh my

And I don’t wanna let it go
You know I’m not a weirdo
No, I don’t wanna let it go
You know I’m not a weirdo
Oooooooh
No, I don’t wanna let it go
You know I’m not a weirdo

I know that I’m neurotic
And I’m hard to please
And I’m disobliging
And faulty by design
Not withstanding, I think we could work out
Work out just fine

And I don’t wanna let it go
You know I’m not a weirdo
No, I don’t wanna let it go
You know I’m not a weirdo
No
You question me even though
You know I’m not a weirdo

I don’t wanna let it go
You know I’m not a weirdo

Bad Mood

Better to be ready if you rattle my cage
Oh I should loosen up some, baby I know
But I get angrier with age
Better to be ready if you rattle my cage

Oh you look disappointed in me
Oh am I not as thoughtful as you thought I’d be?
Yeah I know I’m always giving you the third degree
But you look disappointed in me

Now I’m in a bad, bad mood, a bad, bad mood
I’m in a bad, bad mood, a bad, bad mood

We’ll rate, generate, generate some more
So what you singing about summer for?
Forgive me if I’m onto one
And I’ll afford it but I suspect
Retrospect to your perception
You’re looking in the wrong direction
As I’m sure that you’ll come through
I’m in a pretty awful mood

Better to be ready if you rattle my cage
And I know I’m always putting it on you
But I get angrier with age
Better to be ready if you rattle my cage

Now I’m a bad, bad mood, a bad, bad mood
I’m in a bad, bad mood, a bad, bad mood
I’m in a bad, bad mood, a bad, bad mood

Change of Heart Pt. 2

Do ya do ya do ya think of speaking your mind
Or is openly as lonely as it is cold
And do ya do ya do ya wanna get every wait
Or is it better off in the balance anyway
Later on or yeah whatever
I see now, now becay never ends

What the hell you do it’s up to you
Now you’ve got to see it through
Tell the man you’ve had a change of heart

Do you make light of a bad situation
By burying your head under the sand
And eat the apple of your eye
Just because your mouth was dry
Ooooh

It doesn’t really matter what you need
But honesty’s a dying art
Just tell the man that you’ve had a change of heart

Bullet hits the wall and you’ll play along
Give someone an answer and they’ll think of one
But now you find yourself somewhere you have never been before
Ooooooh

Give it time there’s no appeal
And now stormy under pill
Tell the man you’ve had a change of heart
Oh you can bite the bullet heart or just do in a minute for
The love of God you’ve had a change of heart

I Wish I Was A Girl

You walk into the room with refine and poise
Bewitching, enthralling all of the boys
You’re so chic and you’re so sweet
And ooooh

I wish I was a girl
Yeah, I wish I was a girl

You seductive mystery
You’re a revelation to me
Life is easy when you’re easy on the eye
And I…

I wish I was a girl
Yeah, I wish I was a girl

‘Cause your appeal is an open door
That you float through in your haute couture
Dolce & Gabbana, McQueen, Armani, Prada
von Fürstenberg on Mulberry, Givenchy and Escada

Oh I
I wish I was a girl
Yeah, I wish I was a girl
Yeah, I wish I was a girl
I wish I was a girl
Yeah, I wish I was a girl

Lonely World

I knew where you were, it was perfectly obvious
I was uncomfortable playing it cool
And I feel like I have always known you
I can’t recurse and I thought you had questioned it
Young in the night when we stare at the rest of it
Don’t forget, Lord I know

I will hold you close
‘Cause it is a lonely world
But would you want me to
‘Cause it is a lonely word

Well I put it off cause I’m painfully diffident
I played it out in my head from afar
But then trust me to go mess my mold up
You present her to my dissatisfaction
Oh what could have been with a little more time
Oh woes me, oh my God

I will hold you close
Because it is a lonely world
But would want me to
‘Cause it is a lonely world

Yeah, I will hold you close
‘Cause it is a lonely world
If I was confident
‘Cause it is a lonely world

I will hold you close
Because it is a lonely world
But would want me to
‘Cause it is a lonely world

Yeah, I will hold you close
‘Cause it is a lonely world
If I was confident
‘Cause it is a lonely world
