Another man lays down in the devils bed
Another woman lays down in the devils bed
No love to shield their soul
No help to break the hold
A cold breeze blows in the wind for the already dead.

Mama didn't try to raise her king
Papa liked to roll the dice and drink and sing
Little girl lost her way
A price they had to pay
They didn't see the sadness it would bring.

Another man lays down in the devils bed
Another woman lays down in the devils bed
No love to shield their soul
No help to break the hold
A cold breeze blows in the wind for the already dead

Playing life like Russian roulette just passes the time
Until the shadow men come calling by
To take them to a world where they'll finally feel alive
It wont be long until they meet on the other side

Another man lays down in the devils bed
Another woman lays down in the devils bed
No love to shield their soul
No help to break the hold
A cold breeze blows in the wind for the already dead

No love to shield their soul
No help to break the hold
A cold breeze blows in the wind for the already dead

Devils Bed

When you can't get to grips wi the mornin'
And ya slept in the bath not yer bed
And ya wake in the suit yer were born in
And yer chin locks itself as yer yawnin'
With an old lady's hat on yer head....

You were dreamin' of skiing in Norway
When ya woke to yer Ma in the doorway
And yer know there's no havin' it your way
Do ya know
What ya said?

Well i can't get to grips wi the mornin'
And i slept in the bath not me bed
And i woke in the suit i was born in
And me chin locked itself cos' of yawnin'
And i borrowed this hat on me head.

If yer just gimme time i'll be fine
Ma
It was just a bad drink in a wine bar
And the lads took the clothes that were mine Ma
Do ya know what she said?

Well ya can't get to grips wi the mornin'
And ya slept in the bath not yer bed
And yer wearin' the suit ya were born in
And yer chin locked itself cos' of yawnin'
Now gimme me hat off yer head!!

And i wish i was skiing in Norway
Not facing me Ma in the doorway
Wi me legs and me face in a poor way
And me Ma's hat on me head.

And i can't get to grips wi the mornin'
And i slept in the bath not me bed
And i'm wearin' the suit i was born in
And me Ma's silly hat's on me head.

Getting To Grips

Life is too short to keep bad company
Life is too short to live in misery
All that you need darling
All that you need
All that you need is to learn to let go
And live it
You just got to live it

Life is too short to ride the pity train
Life is too short to seek the wrong kind of fame
All that you need darling
All that you need
All that you need is to learn to let go
And live it
You just got to live it

A little bit of insight
I'm willing to share with you
Focus on the positive
Being positive will see you through
You know I'm speaking the truth

Life is too short to have bad company
Life is too short to live in misery
Life is too short to ride the pity train
Life is too short to seek the wrong kind of fame
All that you need darling
All that you need
All that you need is to learn to let go
And live it
You just got to live it

Life Is Too Short

I stay to watch the storm rage
I pray that someday my life will change
But I am lost on my way
Lost on my way
And now I'm stuck with no clear view in front of me
A voice in my head screams save me
How do I save myself?
How do I get out of the storm?

Crash and fall
Shame and scorn
Never could I have imagined, where I'd be right now
My friends all say
It's never too late
But I left it too late
You can change
How can I change?
It's not easy
I'm in too deep

I could do with some guidance
A sign, a miracle, anything
I will take anything
Help get me out
I want to feel alive
I want to be happy
Give me a sign
Give me a sign

Crash and fall
Shame and scorn
Never could I have imagined where I'd be right now
My friends all say
It's never too late
But I left it too late
You can change
How can I change?
It's not easy
I'm in too deep
In too deep

I could do with some guidance
A sign, a miracle, anything
I will take anything
Help get me out

Crash And Fall

She gazes down at him
There in the picture
Her beautiful baby
Beautiful boy
Where are those days now
Where did they go to
Memories to cherish
Her heart will hold on to
Filled with pain and tormented by their plight
She closes her eyes
Kisses the picture and whispers
Wake up sunshine

Dear god
Mend his broken wings
Help him escape his past sins
I feel like I failed him
Catch him he's falling

I prayed by his side
But I couldn't see
The short time we had before he was snatched from me
I tried to believe it was all a dream
without him it's killing me

Dear god
Mend his broken wings
Help him escape his past sins
I feel like I failed him
Catch him he's falling

How deep can I go into my dreams
I'd pull you out and keep you safely here with me

Dear god
Mend his broken wings
Help him escape his past sins
I feel like I failed him
Catch him he's falling

She gazes down at him
There in the picture
Her beautiful baby
beautiful boy
Where are those days now
Where did they go to
Memories to cherish
Her heart will hold on to
Filled with pain and tormented by their plight
She closes her eyes
Kisses the picture and whispers
Sleep tight, my sunshine

Broken Wings

Watch for the lad who looks over his shoulder
Wait for the shrug that says 'never do care'
Lashes so dark and the brown eyes that smoulder
Laughs on his lips and the hay in his hair



Wait for the lad who will show if he wants to
Whispers soft words that will ruffle his curls
You're for the night but you're never his morning
forgotten by day and just one of his girls



He is the lad who looks over his shoulder
Wait for the shrug that says 'never do care'
lashes so dark and the brown eyes that smoulder
Laughs on his lips and the hay in his hair



He won't sing sweet songs and he won't take you dancing
Bring you bright beads or a soft shawl to wear
look for the lashes and brown eyes that smoulder
Laughs on his lips and the hay in his hair

Hay In His Hair

No no no
You gotta go
No no no
You gotta go
No no no
You gotta go
Dry your eyes
Pack up and leave

You let me down
Now I have to say bye
You burnt me out
To stay wouldn't be right
Accept we're done
So I can have a better life
I loved you then
But this is where we end

You thought naively
You could deceive me
Believe me when I say
It won't be easy
But you have to free me
And let me go my own way

No no no
You gotta go
No no no
You gotta go
No no no
You gotta go
Dry your eyes
Pack up and leave

You let me down
Now I have to say bye
You burnt me out
To stay wouldn't be right
Accept we're done
So I can have a better life
I loved you then
But this is where we end

All the woman and the runs you made
All of those silly games that you played
You kept on falling
Taking me with you
You put me in danger too
Now we're through

You are asking me to change my mind
The last time was the last time
I am taking back control of my life
You gotta go

Keep collecting all those dodgy pay cheques
Fooling with sluts in latex
Running from rival waste men
We're done, I'm out

No no no
You gotta go
No no no
You gotta go
No no no
You gotta go
Dry your eyes
Pack up and leave

You let me down
Now I have to say bye
You burnt me out
To stay wouldn't be right
Accept we're done
So I can have a better life
I loved you then
But this is where we end

You Gotta Go

I caught the 27 I was fine
Don't ya know?
Was no nightmare got the right fare
Was on time
Don't ya know?
And then I saw the chick
Who would be mine
Don't ya know?
Went all funny
Dropped my money
In the line don't ya know?

Girl on the bus look over at me
27 bus is where I'll be
After college every day
At half past three.

I ride the 27 in my dreams
Don't ya know?
Have the right fare
It's no nightmare
Sunshine gleams
Don't ya know?
It's gonna be much harder than it seems
Don't ya know?
I can get her if I'm better
In my schemes
Don't ya know?

Girl on the bus look over at me
27 bus is where I'll be
After college every day
At half past three.

About Me

Bio

Hi, pleased to introduce myself to you song searchers out there. Keeping it short, i love to write song lyrics. Songs are a way of telling folk how we feel, what makes us tick. An outpouring of ourselves, a pen portrait, from the heart. These are my words. I hope you like them enough to buy and set them to your own music. Thanks. And i wish you luck and success.
