Culture Club See Thru

No apology necessary

shut your mouth you’ve closed your mind

We’ve been walking this road forever

It don’t lead to paradise

In the mirror your sad reflection haunting you

Now I see mine

Yes I see mine

And you just don’t get it

But you just might regret it

Shooting the rainbows from the sky

Throwing your love to pass us by

Begging forgiveness for your crime

Never prepared to do your time

It’s always them and never you

‘Cause you’re so see thru

Ain’t no use in demanding justice

You’re a victim of your sign

I held you up when your heart was heavy

Now you’ll never give me mine

In the mirror my sad reflection hunting me

One more time

One more time

And you just don’t get it, do ya

But you just might regret it

Shooting the rainbows from the sky

Throwing your love to pass us by

Begging forgiveness for your crime

Never prepared to do your time

It’s always them and never you

‘Cause you’re so see thru

I see thru you

Shooting the rainbows from the sky

Throwing your love to pass us by

Begging forgiveness for your crime

Never prepared to do your time

It’s always them and never you

Boy you’re so see thru

I see thru you

Just don’t get it no you just don’t get it do you

You just don’t get it but you might regret it

Shooting the rainbows from the sky

Throwing your love to pass us by

Begging forgiveness for your crime

Never prepared to do your time

It’s always them and never you

‘Cause you’re so see thru

I see thru you

Yes I do

You’re so see thru

Just don’t get it no you just don’t get it do you (I was ready to give it all)

You just don’t get it but you might regret it (I was tired of feeling small)

Culture Club Reasons

Many lives they come, many lives they go

Without reason

In my heart I know I cannot let go

Without reason

Little children don’t you feel so sad

When you come home feeling lost and bad

You got a reason, oh you got a reason

Oh woman, I gave my heart to you

When I found out what you’ve been through

You got a reason, oh you got a reason

Many lives they come, many lives they go

Without a reason in your heart

how could you know?

In my heart I know, I know I cannot let go

Without a reason in my heart

how could you know?

(I know)

When they find you crying sorrow tears

And it’s too late after all these years

You got a reason, gimme that reason

It’s boys be strong and girls be weak

But children, careful how you speak

You got a reason, gimme that reason

Many lives they come, many lives they go

Without a reason in your heart

how could you know?

In my heart I know I cannot let go

Gotta reason in my heart and don’t you know?

I believe in love

I believe in you baby

What about love?

Give it to me

You gotta give me a reason baby

Little children don’t you feel so bad

When you come home feeling lost and sad

You got a reason

Believe it in your heart and it will show

Culture Club Miss Me Blind

Miss me

I know you’ll miss me

I know you’ll miss me blind

I know you’ll miss me

I know you’ll miss me

I know you’ll miss me blind

Bet you got a good gun

Bet you know how

To have some fun

And then

You turn it around on me

Because I’m better

than the rest of the men

I say you’ll miss me

And you always do

I say you’ll miss me

Now would I lie to you?

Now there’s no need to demand

Grab my golden hand

I’ll teach you

And you’ll never be sure

If the way that you need

Is too much like greed

Decide if you are rich or you’re poor

I know you’ll miss me

I know you’ll miss me

I know you’ll miss me blind

Bet you make the fool run

Bet you know how

To make it last forever

But you know

I’m never really sure

If you’re just

Kissing to be clever

I say you’ll miss me

And you always do

I say you’ll miss me

Now would I lie to you

Because the love

That I have to give

Must be better than that kind

It can make you rich

It can make you poor

But I know that

You’ll miss me blind

I know you’ll miss me

I know you’ll miss me

I know you’ll miss me blind

Culture Club Mystery Boy

Ooh mystery boy

But what you say it never lingers

It’s not what you say, but what you see

Boy look at me

I couldn’t look no better see

Ooh mystery boy

Ooh mystery boy

It’s too sad that love would sting you

You told the girl that it would be

A kind of love that’s deep within you

A boy’s a boy, but did they say he’d be

For eternity

Or just a mystery

Ooh mystery boy

Ooh mystery boy

Some dream that’s hard to see

Culture Club Victims

The victims we know so well

They shine in your eyes

When they kiss and tell

Strange places we never see

But you’re always there

Like a ghost in my dream

And I keep on telling you

Please don’t do the things you do

When you do those things

Pull my puppet strings

I have the strangest void for you

We love and we never tell

What places our hearts in the wishing well

Love leads us into the stream

And it’s sink or swim

Like it’s always been

And I keep on loving you

It’s the only thing to do

When the angel sings

There are greater things

Can I give them all to you

Pull the strings of emotion

Take a ride into unknown pleasure

Feel like a child

On a dark night

Wishing there was some kind of heaven

Oh I could be warm with you smiling

Hold out your hand for a while

The victims we know them so well

So well

The victims we know so well

They shine in your eyes

When they kiss and tell

Strange places we never see

But you’re always there

Like a ghost in my dream

And I keep on telling you

Please don’t do the things you do

When you do those things

Pull my puppet strings

I have the strangest void for you

Show my heart some devotion

Push aside those that whisper never

Fell like a child on a dark night

Wishing we could spend it together

Oh I could be warm with you smiling

Hold out your hand for a while

The victims

We know them so well

So well

What if you’re a lonely boy?

What if you’re a broken man?

I gave you my life, it was easy for you

No explanation, this boy has grown up too

They say they’ll never let you down

United we stand so tall

They say they’ll never let you down

United we fall

I have been a broken man

I am here and still crying

Culture Club Strange Voodoo

How can I help you boy

when I don’t even help myself

I’m useless now as I have always been

Just like some worthless love song dying on the radio

We talk in circles til we don’t know what we mean

Ain’t No happy ever after

no big dark man

Ain’t no perfect situation

can’t you understand

Loving you is some strange voodoo

Loving you is some strange voodoo

How can I love you boy

when you don’t even love yourself

I’m useless now as I have always been

Your lying eyes

your thieving hands

you’re such a rogue at times

But you will always be a part of me

No happy ever after

no big dark man

Ain’t no perfect situation

ain’t no master plan

Loving you is some strange voodoo

Loving you is some strange voodoo

Ain’t no happy ever after

no big dark man

Ain’t no perfect situation

can’t you understand

Loving you is some strange voodoo

Loving you is some strange voodoo

Loving you I keep loving you yes I do

Culture Club Mistake No. 3

You can’t bystand all the people

Stand them on their own

They will fall to pieces

So we watch them grow

Into strange and pretty faces

I don’t know

Clutching to my lipstick traces

Watch them go

Make Mistake Number 3

It’s strange how much it changes

How they want to know

How cynical are people

That’s where children go

Dragged into a conversation

They can’t hold

It’s so sad but it prepares them

For the mould

Make Mistake Number 3

Why is my love like an ocean run dry?

And why is my love

such a struggle with life?

You can’t bystand all the people

Stand them on their own

They will fall to pieces

So we watch them grow

Make Mistake Number 3

Culture Club Sexuality

Play

Playing with my sexuality

Play with your body, with your mind

All you pretty people staring at the wall

Gonna make it easy, easy for all

When I say I don’t dance, I’m mean

Not like you

When I say I don’t dance, I need

Something new

All you pretty babies staring at the boy

Gonna tell you something, you won’t get no joy

When I say I don’t dance, I’m mean

Not like you

When I say I don’t dance, I need

Something new

Wednesday night I sleep unfolded

Thursday night another dream

Friday night my heart is pumping

Saturday I’m feeling mean

Say it, with your body

Say it, with your body, with your mind

Say it, with your sexuality

With your body, with your mind

Culture Club Mannequin

He’s the mannequin of your dreams

You designed him

Nothing will stand in your way

A punch in the heart

won’t tear him apart

Neither will the things they say

Cos he’s a beggar lover believer

You are just an innocent reader

He’s the mannequin of your dreams

Step inside him

Look at the world his way

Laughter is loud

from the fool in the crowd

You’ll crack his smile one day

Every dream must follow where we go

Don’t let them shatter your ego

Mannequin, lover mannequin, my lover mannequin

Mannequin, lover mannequin, my lover mannequin

I gave you every bit of my time

You lied and you committed a crime

To present my feelings

With shallow meanings

How could you tear me apart?

He’s the mannequin of your dreams

You denied him

Laughter and political sway

People are sweet

But the primitive beat

Is always getting in my way

I can give you nothing but me though

It isn’t what you want to see oh
