Glorias

Written By: Jonny Wright

Glorias

Everybody in the world knows someone like this girl
just for now let's call her Gloria
but it isn't her name, burnt into my brain
G.L.O.R.I.A
and on Countdown, Carol would pull out those 3 vowels
yeah your consonants
gather in a word and it's glorious

oh you're glorious
and I'm in love with you as such
yeah I write your name
again, again, again, again
oh you're glorious
and everybody knows that much
oh I love your name
Gloria
G.L.O.R.I.A

Everybody in the world seen pictures of my girl;
gets about she's so well photographed
but it isn't her face burnt into my brain
G.L.O.R.I.A
and in crosswords, filling them in with all of the wrong words
yeah well how curious,
everything I read spells glorious

oh you're glorious
and I'm in love with you as such
yeah I write your name
again, again, again, again
oh you're glorious
and everybody knows that much
oh I love your name
Gloria
G.L.O.R.I.A

it's just something that i say

Read about her in a book, wherever I look
on the TV on the radio
am I going insane, don't everybody see that name?
so I made a little word up, had to keep it hushed up;
made a little code up
'cause you're glorious, you're glorious
that's why I call you Gloria

oh you're glorious
and I'm in love with you as such
yeah I write your name
again, again, again, again
oh you're glorious
and everybody knows that much
oh I love your name
Gloria
G.L.O.R.I.A

Last thing at night (first thing in the morning)

Written By: Jonny Wright

last thing at night (first thing in the morning)

it's getting on for 4am why are we still up?
you can have the last word say it, I've had enough
i can see dregs of us in my coffee cup
i know you wanna talk it through, we talk too much

but you wanna start again before breakfast
i haven't slept at all, i don't get this.
let's give ourselves an hour
we can't sort it out...

last thing at night
first thing in the morning
you're keeping me up all night
i can't stop yawning
last thing at night
I'm not one for talking
and stop trying to make this right
first thing in the morning

maybe we could sit this down in a quiet spot
you could tell me what it is and what it's not
but you only wanna talk it through when the lights go off
you only wanna check the map when the day is lost

and it's gonna start again around midnight
you're gonna say for now that it's alright
let's give ourselves the time
we can't make it right...

last thing at night
first thing in the morning
you're keeping me up all night
i can't stop yawning
last thing at night
I'm not one for talking
and stop trying to make this right
first thing in the morning

it's hopeless when we're tired
stop trying to make this right
let's give ourselves some time...
Ah it's late so girl hit the brakes
we're making mistakes
i can't keep awake
and I'm so tired, keep getting it wrong
at the first break of light you're starting a fight

last thing at night
first thing in the morning
you're keeping me up all night
i can't stop yawning
last thing at night
I'm not one for talking
and stop trying to make this right
first thing in the morning
