Lyrics

Girls on Film
03:34
See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
Heads turning as the lights flashing out are so bright
And walk right out to the four line track, there's a camera rolling on her back, on her back
And I sense a rhythm humming in a frenzy all the way down her spine

Girls on film
Girls on film
Girls on film
Girls on film

Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
And miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
The diving man's coming up for air 'cause the crowd all love pulling dolly by the hair, by the hair
And she wonders how she ever got here as she goes under again

Girls on film, two minutes later
Girls on film
Girls on film, got your picture
Girls on film

Wider, baby, smile and you've just made a million
Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
Take one last glimpse into the night, I'm touching close, I'm holding bright, holding tight
Give me shudders in a whisper, take me up til I'm shooting a star

Girls on film, she's more than a lady
Girls on film
Girls on film, two minutes later
Girls on film
Girls on film, see you together
Girls on film
Girls on film, see you later
Girls on film
Planet Earth
04:04
Only came outside to watch the nightfall with the rain
I heard you making patterns rhyme
Like some new romantic looking for the tv sound
You'll see I'm right some other time

Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
This is planet earth you're looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth

My head is stuck on something precious
Let me know if you're coming down to land
Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
My eyes are so cloudy I can't see you

Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
This is planet earth you're looking at planet earth

Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop calling planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth
Anyone Out There
04:03
I never found out what made you leave
And now the day is over, just an hour to go
I tried to phone last night but you didn't answer
Just left me ringing on the line

Outside is there anyone out there, anyone else outside
Outside love is there anyone out there, anyone else outside

My face in the mirror shows the break in time
A crack in the ocean which does not align
I tried to sleep last night but I've caught your dreaming
About days we used to wonder away

Outside is there anyone out there, anyone else outside
Outside love is there anyone out there, anyone else outside

Look out of the window maybe you can call by my name
Another night over babe another light comes on in vain

I tried to phone last night but you never answered
Just left me ringing in the air (outside)

Is there anyone out there
(anyone out there)
To the Shore
03:52
When your nine day feed is up
And you've drained your loving cup
Come stands reeling to the shore

When the brave are coming out
The dry fight and the dusty shout
See you crawling on the floor

And diamond stars shine glitter bright
Gorging your sanhedralite

Words are falling to the floor
Glands stand pouring fruit tree
Now they glisten on the waterline
See how you are at the shore
I'm moving Chrissie pretty flowers in the shutter maze
Haul up all your petty desires

Leave them lying down before
Wash away the rusty disease
Of your brown town days in our silver sea
Leave it dying at the door
Feather yellow your time to leave
Open out your arms and breathe

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
To the shore now
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
To the shore now
Come on
Careless Memories
03:57
So soon
Just after you've gone
My senses sharpen
But it always takes
So damned long
Before I feel how much
My eyes have darkened

Fear hangs a plane of gunsmoke
Drifting in our room
So easy to disturb
With a thought
With a whisper
With a careless memory

On the table
Signs of love life scattered
And the walls break
We go crashing within
It's not as though
As though you really mattered
But being close,
How could I let you go
Without some feeling
Some precious sympathy following

Fear hangs a plane of gunsmoke
Drifting in our room
So easy to disturb
With a thought
With a whisper
With a careless memory

I walk out into the sun
I try to find a new day
But the whole place
It just screams in my eyes
Where are you now?
Cuz I don't want to meet you
I think I'd die
I think I'd laugh at you
I think I'd cry
What am I supposed to do
Follow you?

Outside the thoughts
Come flooding back now
I just try to forget you
So easy to disturb
With a thought
With a whisper
With a careless memory
Night Boat
05:26
Standing
On the edge of the quay
No light flashes on the water for me
Fog in my mind darkens in my eyes
Silently screaming for a distant sound
Ripple river yellows
Rising for a breath of breeding and drowns
Stillness overcomes me in the night
Listen to the rising water moan
Waiting, waiting for the night boat
I'm waiting, waiting for the night boat
Shadows all through me
Shudder away
Echo me, echo me
Am I alone
Or is the river alive
Cause it echoes me echoes me echoes me
I'm waiting, waiting for the night boat
I'm waiting, waiting for the night boat
Waiting, waiting for the night boat
I'm waiting
I'm waiting, waiting for the night boat
I'm waiting for the night boat
Sound of Thunder
04:08
Been in this grass here for the last ten hours
My clothes are dirty but my mouth isn't dry
How does it happen, does it fly through the air
Oh, I gave up asking days away

And now I'm lying here waiting for the sound of thunder

Here I am, I'm the dotted line
Cut the corners stick me to your door
I'm the man who stepped off the path
And I just lie here
It's what I was made for

And now my eyes are closing but I still feel the land
Leaning out for the touch of my hand

The world spins so fast
That I might fly off
The world spins so fast
That I might fly off
The world spins so fast
That I might fly off

I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
Friends of Mine
05:45
Friends of mine
They said they were friends of mine
Said they were passing time
More like a waste of time

Close the door
I said close the door
I've told you twice before
What are you waiting for

Georgie Davies is coming out
No more heroes we twist and shout
Oh no not me I'm not too late
And I know that I'm not taking anymore
Rocky Picture has lost his gun
Leave him out now he's having fun
Oh no not me I'm not too late
And I know that I'm not waiting any more (hey hey)

Silly lies, don't have to advertise
When will you realize, I'm sick of you alibis

Running cold, the waters running cold
I thinks it's time you were told
I think you're growing old

Georgie Davies is coming out
No more heroes we twist and shout
Oh no not me I'm not too late
And I know that I'm not waiting anymore
Rocky Picture has lost his gun
Leave him out now he's having fun
Oh no not me I'm not too late
And I know that I'm not taking any more (hey hey)

Friends of mine
They said they were friends of mine
They were just wasting time
Out on the dotted line

Moneys gone, I knew it all along
Why don't you say I'm wrong
Why don't they drop the bomb

Georgie Davies is coming out
No more heroes we twist and shout
Oh no not me I'm not too late
And I know that I'm not waiting anymore
Rocky Picture has thrown away his gun
Leave him out now he's having fun
Oh no not me I'm not too late
And I know that I'm not taking any more (hey hey)

What you doing friends of mine
Holding back now friends of mine
I've always heard you calling
