Paul Weller One Bright Star

I want you

I only want you

You’re the one bright star, in my eyes

I only need you

I only need you

You’re the one bright star, shine for me

Without you,

I feel nothing

My one bright star, shine for me.

I love you

I only love you

You’re the one bright star, in my life

I need you

I only need you

You’re the one bright star, shine for me

Without you

I feel nothing

My one bright star, shine for me.

Paul Weller Bottle

Where has my bottle gone

Where is the man I was

And not this black eyed dog

Who barks away at night

Tiny fragments deep and real

Unforgiven but always true

Are the only truths I now

The ones I hang on to

Farewell my old true love

Goodbye this town

I can no longer live this life

Not knowing up from down

Tiny pieces in a grass

Unforgiving but always true

Are the only truths I know

The few I hang on too…

Paul Weller Waiting On An Angel

Waiting on an angel

One to carry me home

Hope you come to see me soon

Cause I don’t want to go alone

I don’ t want to go alone

Now angel won’t you come by me

Angel hear my plea

Take my hand lift me up

So that I can fly with thee

So that I can fly with thee

And I’m waiting on an angel

And I know it won’ t be long

To find myself a resting place

In my angel’s arms

In my angel’s arms

So speak kind to a stranger

Cause you’ll never know

It just might be an angel come

Knockin’ at your door

Knockin’ at your door

And I’m waiting on an angel

And I know it won’t be long

To find myself a resting place

In my angel’s arms

In my angel’s arms

Waiting on an angel

One to carry me home

Hope you come and see me soon

Cause I don’ t want to go alone

I don’t want to go alone

Don’t want to go

I don’t want to go alone

Paul Weller Fly On The Wall

Where angels meet – their words are whispers

As sea touches shore – the clouds move swiftly

And me, so small

Compared to it all

Like a fly on the wall

As pieces sweep

Their meaning is still no clearer

And under my feet

There’s nothing to stop my own free fall

Down and down I go

And compared to it all

I’m a fly on the wall

Our children sleep

Resting our hopes and wishes

The night in between

I’m casting my scope, just fishing

Uhh, and in spite of it all

Oh, I look at me so small

And compared to it all

I’m a fly on the wall

And compared to it all

I’m a fly on the wall

Paul Weller Sweet Pea, My Sweet Pea

Sweet pea, my sweet pea

You’re the one to get my heart a-jumpin’

Light of love all around your

Being to see

The future – it’s looking at you

It only exists because you’re alive

So close your eyes and smile

Your smiles of sweet dreams

And fill them with love again

Sweet pea

Fill them with joy again

Each pace I take and you know why

I write for you and I to try

To take the things that lie around

And turn them into dreams so swift-so proud

It’s on a time again

And it’s mine again

Sweet thing, loving you is easy

Goodbye sadness when I’m around you

Giving me something I can feel

Down to in bones

Ah, sometimes – maybe just sometimes

Look back on these times and smile

And have the grace to know

What you have seen

And fill you with love again

Sweet pea

(You) fill me with hope again!

My Sweet Pea

Recollected thoughts and songs

Emblems of forgotten words

Remnants of a time so clear

That still rings fresh and true

When the wind is here

It’s on a time again

And it’s mine again!

Sweet pea, my sweet pea

Heaven knows I got a thing about you

You’re the girl to get my heart

Start jumpin’ again

Ah, sometimes – baby just sometimes

Look back on these times and smile

And have the grace to know

What you have seen

How it should be – my sweet pea

Only God knows what I feel about you

You’re the girl to get my heart

Start pumpin’ around

The Future? – its looking at you

It only exists because you’re alive

So close your eyes and smile

Your smiles of sweet dreams…

Fill them with love again

Sweet pea

Fill them with joy again

Yes, sweet thing

Fill them with love again

My sweet pea

Paul Weller The Strange Museum

Come on in, admission’s free

I won’t refuse those who wanna see

Bring your loved ones, those you hold dear

Bring them all, there’s no restrictions here

But don’t look for blame as an easy escape

There’s nothing on show that isn’t your shame

So come on in, it’s a small price to pay

And I won’t refuse those who’ve lost their way

Paul Weller English Rose

No matter where I roam

I will come back to my English rose

For no bonds can ever tempt me from she

I’ve sailed the seven seas,

Flown the whole blue sky.

But I’ve returned with haste

To where my love does lie.

No matter where I go

I will come back to my English Rose

For nothing can ever tempt me from she.

I’ve searched the secret mists –

I’ve climbed the highest peaks

Caught the wild wind home

To hear her soft voice speak

No matter where I roam

I will come back to my English Rose

For no bonds can ever tempt me from she.

I’ve been to ancient worlds

I’ve scoured the whole universe

And caught the first train home

To be at her side.

No matter where I go

I will return to my English Rose

For no bonds, nothing and no-one can ever keep me from she

Paul Weller Old Castles

Moonbeams and twilight

Sit by the fireside and glow

Casting grand shadows

All on the meadows below

But the old king is quiet

Looks into the fire, I think he knows

That his bubble has burst, and what’s worse

Is now it shows

His old world is changing

But he don’t notice at all

His kingdom is crumbling

But he can’t see it and so, oh

Some kings just don’t care

Happy just to stare and stare

And bad things will happen

That cause old castles to fall

He could have done something

Inspired a tired old Earth

Done something good, done something right

With which the people could unite and grow

For their old world is changing

But they don’t notice at all

Their kingdoms are crumbling

But they can’t see it and so, oh

Some kings just can’t say no

They’ll take till there’s nothing to grow

And bad things will happen

That cause old castles to fall

For its roots are rotten

Its old walls and all

And bad things happen

That cause old castles

Cause old castles

Cause old castles to fall

Oh

Paul Weller Bring Back The Funk

Once upon a time

There was a time, there was

When the brightest half of the sky

Let us know we were loved

And there was a feeling old and gold

And bold

And beautiful

Something noble, something lost

Safe yet curious

When you bring back the funk y’all

Slip up and slide

When you bring back the funk y’all

With no place left to hide

No place left to hide

When not only the wind in our sails

Some magic too

Sometimes we forget

Just how high the moon

It was something bright and fine

And in time

Became the world

It would shed stars and bars

All kinds of hearts

Were together again

When you bring back the funk y’all

Slip up and slide

When you bring back the funk y’all

With no place left to hide

When you bring back the funk y’all

Slip up and slide

When you bring back the funk y’all

With no place left to hide

No place left to hide

When you learn to speak

Whenever you want or need

When you learn to cry

When it passes you by

It is something, something to me now

It is something, something to me now

Give me something, something to me now

Once upon a dream

In the midnight hour

There was nothing like scene

And we thank the crowd

Now its a feeling tame and small

And though it all

I’ll look for word

Just one more night exists

Just what if

We dream’t for all

When you bring back the funk y’all

Slip up and slide

When you bring back the funk y’all

With no place left to hide

When you bring back the funk y’all

Get up and slide

When you bring back the funk y’all

With no place left to hide

When you bring back the funk y’all

Get up and slide

When you bring back the funk y’all

There’ll be no place left to hide

When you bring back the funk y’all

When you bring back the funk y’all

When you bring back the love y’all

When you bring back the love y’all

When you bring back the funk y’all

When you bring back the love y’all

When you bring back the funk y’all

Paul Weller This Is No Time

This is no time for fumbling

This is no time for turning down

This is no age for wandering

All too much, we stumble and fall – We stumble and fall –

This is no time for mumbling

This is no time for forgetting your lines

This is no time for tumbling

All too much, we stumble and fall – We stumble and fall –

This is no time for dreaming

When you sleep, you wake to find

That something or someone

Has stolen your precious time

As you start to climb

This is no time to go missing

Though it is the time We’d like to most

This is no age to go fishing

All too soon it will be us getting caught

As we stumble and fall
