Lyrics

Saddest Of Sounds

Written By: David ZIncke

Saw you left me without warning
I was up by eight
Had some breakfast on but I'm sure
You didn't want to be late

I could tell by the look of your shoe shine
That you must have been out late
You know the drinkings fine but
Someone's got to carry the weight

I said oh don't you wanna go
Put your best foot forward and leave like I wasn't alone

You know I remember how it was when you were young
Cine films on Beetamax and Some Mothers Do Have 'Em

I said oh I'm feeling old
Last time I looked I had a sign on my soul that said sold

Spent many a year alone now
Feeling sorry for myself
I didn't realise that I was so long on the shelf

I said oh you know I'm looking to go
I put a record on and I dance like there's nobody home

Sometimes happiness comes from the saddest of sounds
And you feel left out
And I feel left out

If you don't make the same mistakes I did
Sure you're going to be much easier to live with

Sometimes happiness comes from the saddest of sounds
And you feel left out
And I feel left out

Close your eyes and smile
Time may take a while

If you don't make the same mistakes I did
Sure you're going to be much easier to live with
(repeat)

Wherever You Go

Written By: David Zincke

Maybe it's time to think about your lifestyle
Cause it's coming around it's coming around again
Maybe it's time to look at yourself for answers
Cause there is beauty in almost everything I see

Yes I know, Yes I know for I have seen it
But typically beauty lets me down

Calculate your possible reactions
Cause it's coming around it's coming around again

Yes I know, yes I know for I have seen it
But typically beauty lets me down

If you want to be alone, that's fine
Be warm in the afterglow, that's fine
You will find it wherever you go
Sometimes it's hard I know, that's fine
Be warm if you have to go, that's fine
But you will find it wherever you go

You know your free to take it all without them
Cause it's coming around it's coming around again

I don't know, I don't know
I haven't seen it
But typically freedom let's me down

You've been walking with your head down in the ground for too long
(repeat)

If you want to be alone, that's fine
Be warm in the afterglow, that's fine
You will find it wherever you go
Sometimes it's hard I know, that's fine
Be warm if you have to go, that's fine
But you will find it wherever you go

It's coming around again
It's coming around it's coming around again
(repeat)
