Love’s A Cure – Lyrics

Emily’s In Trouble (Love’s A Cure)

Emily’s in trouble again
There’s too much in this world to mend
Sometimes it seems so selfish to want love
But you’ve gotta get it while you can
So she sings
She sings

I think I’m falling for you (I think I’m falling for you)
I think I’m falling for you (I think I’m falling for you)
I think I’m falling for you
I think I’m, I think I’m….

I think that I’m gonna try
I think that I’m gonna try
But I know
It takes a heart to cry
And even though
I need love like anyone

She’s got her love on trial
She says
A single difference seems so futile
But her heart knows indifference isn’t fatal
Love’s a cure
Love’s a cure
Love’s a cure
Love’s a cure
So she sings

I think I’m falling for you (I think I’m falling for you)
I think I’m falling for you (I think I’m falling for you)
I think I’m falling for you
I think I’m, I think I’m…

I think that I’m gonna try
I think that I’m gonna try
But I know
It takes a heart to cry
And even though
I need love like anyone

We change so slow it’s like we stay the same
But we, we do the dance we ring the bell we play the game
And while I’m
I’m spinning I’ll be running I’ll be ringing at your door

I think I’m falling for you (I think I’m falling for you)
I think I’m falling for you (I think I’m falling for you)
I think I’m falling for you
I think I’m, I think I’m….

I think that I’m gonna try
I think that I’m gonna try
But I know
It takes a heart to cry
And even though
I need love like anyone

I think that I’m gonna try
I think that I’m gonna try
But I know
It takes a heart to cry
And even though
I need love like anyone

Anyone

Not The One

I am the broken key
Inside the lock of your destiny
I seem to keep closing the door
Each time that I let you fall

So I’ll keep scrubbing at the stains upon my spotted soul
I’ve left it soaking in your trust to feel a little whole
Oh how emptiness sings through me
Like a lullaby
Each time I put a coin into the jukebox
Just to hear you cry
Just to hear you cry
Just to hear you cry
And baby I can’t shake you
Cos maybe I’m just not the one for you

Just like a hired gun
You’ve got me on the run
So I’ll play it like James Dean
Young and cool as I ditch your scene

So you keep licking at the wounds upon your broken soul
And keep it safe inside your walls until you feel whole
Oh how emptiness sings through you
Like a lullaby
Each time I let you down and when I said goodbye
And baby I can’t shake you
Cos maybe I’m just not the one for you

In the night as candles burn
A breaking heart begins to learn
For my words you do not yearn
As betrayal takes its bitter turn

So I’ll keep scrubbing at the stains upon my spotted soul
I’ve left it soaking in your trust to feel a little whole
Oh how emptiness sings through me
Like a lullaby
Each time I put a coin into the jukebox
Just to hear you cry
Just to hear you cry
Just to hear you cry
And baby I can’t shake you
Cos maybe I’m just not the one for you
Maybe I’m just not the one for you
My baby I’m just not the one for you

Lose Once

Well I’ve been walking in these wandering hills
Passing days with all kinds of pills
Now it don’t matter if my wish comes true
Cos I can’t get my thrills on if I can’t have you

So jump once, jump twice,
Don’t think you owe me cos you’re feeling nice
I don’t think that I can be this way forever x2

Since you made off with my happy state
Now I’ve really had to contemplate
Now even though I’ve got someone new
I just can’t get my freak on if I can’t have you

So leave once, leave twice
Don’t think you love me cos you’re feeling nice
I don’t think that I can be this way forever x 2

I’ve been drowning in the bottom of a glass
Stranded at the bottom of a mountain pass
But I know in every kind of way
That I won’t sleep again until I’ve made you pay

So scream once, scream twice
Don’t think it’s over cos you’re feeling nice
I don’t think that I can be this way forever x2

So lose once, lose twice,
It’s not over till I roll the dice
I don’t think that I can be this way forever x2

Restless

She’s sitting in the midst of a morning fog
Waiting for a phone to ring
And he’s lying in someone else’s arms
As the dog brings the paper in
Well there’s a boy behind the counter
Wishing he was someone else
But he died with that dream long ago
And a young girl cries in her mother’s arms
She’s got a secret she can’t let go

Chorus: These are the lives of the sad and the restless
The lives of the torn and true
And each time this world spins around
You can hear a million hearts break in
Two

As an old man sits in the evening sun
Thinking of a lifetime spent
There’s a baby rapping on a young mother’s back
As she wonders how she’s gonna make rent
As a young boy plays on the streets of a city
That teaches men not to cry
An old man’s tears stain these same city streets
As he watches young lovers pass by

Chorus

Well I’ve learned to say my prayers at night
I’ve learned to hold my tears back tight
I’ll only speak when speakings right
and never when it’s wrong
I’ll take my stand when it’s right to fight
I don’t want no trouble tonight
They say everything will be all right
But not for everyone

Chorus

She’s staring out into nothing again
Waiting for something to come
And there’s nothing that I can do
This time

Running From Empty

I guess I should have seen it coming
Happened often enough before
I suppose I should have started running
But it was too late already
Round and round I’m going
Always back to the same place
Lost in a maze I can’t
See through the haze

Now the emptiness is back
It’s got its grip on me
And I’m running
Struggling to get free

Chorus: There’s always something better
Waiting just around the corner
Only I’m running backwards
I’m running on empty x2
I’m running from empty

I guess I should have seen it coming
Happened often enough before
I suppose I should have started running
But it was too late already

I guess I should have seen it coming
But I’d lost my way
I knew I should have started running
But I’m on empty

Now the emptiness is back
It’s got its grip on me
And I’m running
Struggling to get free

Chorus

Jenny

That woman she don’t ride the northern train
She’s not one for living life in vain
She has walked a thousand lands in bloom
She sails across the seas in her balloon

Chorus: They call her Jenny and she rides the Jamboree
She don’t kill she just lives on leafy greens
And if you want to taunt her
She’ll come back to haunt you
She’s running through the corners of our dreams

That Jenny she don’t follow the man in blue
She’s not one for the common view
She likes the sea and all the earthlings too
She rides the breeze and blows kisses to the moon

Chorus

And the world she knows as she dances on her toes
Don’t you miss Jenny?
I know I miss Jenny
Don’t you love Jenny and the flowers in her hair

That girl she walks beneath the golden rays
She teaches us to feel in different ways
She sings beneath the summer skies of blue
She speaks of life and bathes in mountain dew

Chorus

Trip Me Up

Trip me up
Trick my heart
Toss me like a stranger’s cigarette

I know better
but I trust easy
And running ain’t so easy when you can’t walk

Slow down honey
See what you’ve done
Listen to a woman when she talks
She’ll sing for you but her soul is never yours

Shut me out
Build your walls
Caress me like a crowded barricade

I know you now
Tired and old
A rusty tune that everybody’s played

Trip me up
Trick my heart
Taking as you watch a woman fall
She’ll sing for you but her soul is never yours

La la la la…..

Trip me up
Trick my heart
Toss me like a stranger’s cigarette

Trip me up
Trick my heart
Taking as you watch a woman fall

She’ll sing for you but her soul is never yours
She’ll sing for you but her soul is never yours

Stone Walls

Stone walls
Are building up between us
I hear your voice
Screaming as we fall from grace

And I don’t know how to talk to you anymore
It seems that our love is out the door
But even when you’re living in the grey
You’ve gotta believe there’s a way to make love stay

It’s coming around
It’s coming around
it’s coming around and I want more

I hear you outside my door
Is it peace tonight or war?
I long for something else
Is it wrong to wish for more?
Can this be all?
Can this be all? Wish I could be sure….

And I don’t know how to talk to you anymore
It seems that our love is out the door
but even when you’re living in the grey
You gotta believe there’s a way to make love stay

It’s coming around
It’s coming around
It’s coming around
But I want more x 2

Stone Walls
Are building up between us
I hear your voice
Screaming as we fall from grace

And I don’t know how to talk to you anymore
I don’t know how to talk to you anymore

Hard Road

I’m weighing up ghosts
On global scales
I’m looking for love
But all I get are junk males
I like tarzans in tights
I’m not your typical Jane
The more concrete the jungle
The harder the rain

And it’s a hard road
Baby when you’re chasing ghosts
You’re holding on
These city streets they know how to break you
When everyone is waiting for the one
There’re too many faces standing in your sun

It seems like nobody listens
All they hear are the mimes
We are all painted faces
With criminal minds

Our fears they go with us
Like badges on our sleeves
And the more they abuse us
The more we’ll never leave

And it’s a hard road
Baby when you’re chasing ghosts
You’re holding on
These city streets they know how to break you
When everyone is waiting for the one
There’re too many faces standing in your sun

Our fears they go with us
Like badges on our sleeves
And the more they abuse us
The more love we need

And it’s a hard road
Baby when you’re chasing ghosts
You’re holding on
These city streets they know how to break you
When everyone is waiting for the one
There’re too many faces standing in my sun

Into The War

Into the war we go
We will run, we will run
And into the fire we throw
All our love, all our love

People talk drifters walk
Children scream dreamers dream

I get lonely
I get lonely

Even when we don’t know
We will run, we will run
And into the flames we go
No more fun, no more fun

People talk drifters walk
Children scream dreamers dream

I get lonely
I get lonely
I get lonely

When all is said and done
We will fall, we will fall
And into the dark we’ll run
Into the war

People lie children die
Dreamers cry birdless skies
Hide behind alibis
Night’s get dark
Fall apart

I get lonely
I get lonely
I get lonely

Lemons In My Pockets

I’ve got a head full of dreams
Nothing but cotton wool between the ears
It seems
Wake up to the real world
You say
Gotta get some decent pay

Chorus: I guess I’m just a big dreamer
Champagne and caviar
But I’ve got lemons in my pockets
And I’m just a big dreamer

Don’t want more overtime
Got some living to do in my prime
Longing, hoping, wanting, wishing
It can all go away
And only the good things can stay

Chorus

I want to be free
Let out a little craziness maybe
One day you’ll see my speciality
Gotta break loose of all the confines of my soul

Chorus

Giving It All Away

I’m giving it all away x2

Sorrow for happiness
Pain for laughter
Violence for forgiveness
Fear for love
Anger recrimination
Pain and grievous bodily harm
I’m forsaking your justice
For the other side of ruin

I’m giving it all away x4

I’m sick of disbelief
So sick of distrust
By your brutal love I’m battered
Bruised and betrayed
Beaten by your trust
Tortured by your conviction
I’m forsaking your justice
For the other side of ruin

I’m giving it all away…

What have you got to say (Not much)
What have I got to lose (My love)
Find another way of taking the abuse

What have you got to say (Not much)
What have I got to lose (My love)
Find another way of cutting cutting loose
