The Stranglers - Norfolk Coast


Norfolk Coast

I was a loser in the loving wars
I took my treasure to the Norfolk Coast
you did it to me
you did it to me
and now you see
what´s left of me

I walked alone on the Norfolk Coast
with the screams of the birds they echoed around my mind
with the screams of the birds they echoed around my mind

I was a coward in the loving wars
you were for ever, I was just a pause
you did it to me
you did it to me
and now you see
what´s left of me

I walked alone on the Norfolk Coast
with the screams of the birds they echoed around my mind
I walked alone on the N walked alone on the Norfolk Coast
with the screams of the birds they echoed around my mind
with the screams of the birds they echoed around my mind

Big Thing Coming

there is a big change coming
I don´t care who you are
it will change everyone
and with the big change coming
you better find out who
and what you really are come on

there is a new time coming
we´re gonna have to change
apples to everyone
and with the big change coming
we better make our peace
with each and everyone come on

I was howling at the full moon like a wild dog
I prayed the mothership would take me to the heavens above
big thing coming and it´s coming real soon
come on

there is a new time coming
we´re gonna have to change
apples to everyone
and with the big change coming
we better make our peace
with each and everyone come on

I was howling at the full moon like a wild dog
I prayed the mothership would take me to the heavens above
big thing coming and it´s coming real soon
come on

big thing coming and it´s coming real soon

Lost Control

when I thought I had lost control
returned to scenes of crime
asked someone there if they´d seen something pure
it was a friend of mine

walked around with bad thoughts in my mind
didn´t feel quite whole
asked a big issue seller on the underground
have I lost control

I hear voices everywhere
voices in my head
have I lost control

in a jam going nowhere fast
on the Euston Road
my life is ticking away in a car
think I might explode

I hear voices everywhere
voices in my head
have I lost control

there´s one way traffic and it´s going nowhere
I am bruised and battered but I just don´t care
people always telling me to go with the flow
people always telling me what I already know
they say what matters are dollars and cents

I hear voices everywhere
voices in my head
have I lost control

Tucker´s Grave

committed a crime that no longer exists
was left at the crossroads at a place that is jinxed
committed a crime against god and his king
all that´s left is a cider drinking inn

see my summer soon

sit around telling stories by the fire
about the good old days and the things they had for hire
so my friend if you´re feeling especially brave
take a trip down to old tuckers grave

see my summer soon

enter this place and you´ll not come out the same
tucker makes sure that he´ll enter your brain
and when the last drop´s drunk and the gods have their way
there´s every chance you´ll think you´re halfway insane
there´s no turning back now there´s no one can save
a poor soul who visits old tuckers grave

see my summer soon

I Don´t Agree

I´ve got a bee in my bonn
you haven´t been straight with me
and now you´re talking ´bout bombs
and now you want to do things to me

you say you´re the good guy
but you sound just like the bad one
well I think I´d like to disagree
without you coming hard on me

I don´t agree however well you put it
I don´t agree I think you better prove it
I don´t agree how ever much you ham it
I don´t agree I just will not permit it
I´d like to disagree
if that´s ok with you
I´d like to disagree

I think there´s something to discuss
I could say I´m uneasy
there could be problems with us
if passion ends up freezing

you say you´re the good guy
but you sound just like the bad one
well I think I´d like to disagree
without you coming hard on me

I don´t agree however well you put it
I don´t agree I think you better prove it
I don´t agree how ever much you ham it
I don´t agree I just will not permit it
I´d like to disagree
if that´s ok with you
I´d like to disagree

I´ve got a bee in my bonn

Mine All Mine

I´m down on my knees here
what can I do
started a fire but it´s burning right through
was gifted the picture but I twisted the view
there´ll always be something on my mind
somewhere behind the perfect line

yes I´m giving everything I can
I´m going back to Samarkand
give me a reason give me a rhyme
one flash of light and I´ll make it all mine
make it all mine all mine all mine

I´ll sleep in between you with butterfly wings
you´ll never believe that I´m not what I seem
I lie for the moment that lives in my dreams
there´ll always be someone to blow your mind

yes I´m taking everything I can
I´m going out to Samarkand
give me a reason give me a rhyme
see me in season on the cover of time
changing my face now to suit your design
one flash of light and I´ll make it all mine
make it all mine all mine all mine
