The Charlatans As I Watch You In Disbelief

I’ve been lost

And I’ve been forgotten

I fill my boots from time to time

You’ve been washed up like a million bottles

Been eating my own words

All my life

I never get a chance like this to tell you

But I pack a punch like I was seventeen

And I feel like a fool

For even listening to you

As I watch you in disbelief

White trash charm

And good time movies

There’s no need to do me down

A broken man

Wait until you see him

I guess I’ve been gone a long long time

A vision like this should always move me

And legs like these should always be set free

I’ve been a fool for you

now you’re treating me so cool

As I watch you in disbelief

I guess I’m a lost soul rebel

Waiting to lead you astray

Just to know

That I know

I am no fool for you baby

As I watch you in disbelief

I feel good

Like an old time movie

Selling hot dogs

With no big dreams

But I’m just so glad

I’m getting back all I had

As I watch you in disbelief

And I get,

So out of touch,

When this feeling hurts so much

As I watch you in disbelief

The Charlatans And If I Fall

I want to touch somebody

I want to touch somebody for real

I want to change the world

I want to touch somebody

I want to take away their bad things for sure

I want to change their world

Just for the hell of it, just for the sake of it

Just ’cause I want it

And if I fall by the way-side

I am coming down with my hands tied

There is no fall after my pride

Just for the hell of it, just for the sake of it

Just ’cause I need it, just ’cause I want you

I want to give to somebody

I want to give to somebody – good

I want to change the world

Just for the hell of it, just for the sake of it

Just ’cause I want it

If I fall by the way-side

I’m coming down with my hands tied

There is no fall after my pride

Just for the hell of it, just for the sake of it

Just ’cause I need it, just ’cause I want you

And if I fall by the way-side

I’m coming down with my hands tied

There is no fall after my pride

Just for the hell of it, just for the sake of it

Just ’cause I need it, just ’cause I want you

And if you fall by the way-side

I’m coming down with my hands tied

There is no fall after my pride

Just for the hell of it, just for the sake of it

Just ’cause I need it, just ’cause I want you

The Charlatans Apples And Oranges

You know what its like

We’re so different yet we’re so alike

We’re like apples and oranges

Ooooh! I’m not your leaf

You can’t rake me up

I don’t believe

I should live in the wilderness

And I miss you now

And I miss you now

We live in a rag bag world

And I miss you now

I’m not afraid any more

Blowing out of control

Seasons change you know

They come and go

Like apples and oranges

Oooh, talking to my demons

My angels and devils

Oooh! And I miss you now

And I miss you now

We live in a rag bag world

And I miss you now

I’m not afraid any more

I’m not afraid any more

Oooh! the morning light shows trouble like a rock in the road

Oooh, this ride is taking its toll

Oooh! And I miss you now

And I miss you now

We live in a rag bag world

And I miss you now

I’m not afraid any more

I’m not afraid any more

Oooh! the morning light shows trouble like a rock in the road

Oooh, this ride is taking its toll

The Charlatans Another Rider Up In Flames

What a mess in the space

You set your hair on fire again

In the rustiness of your age

Another rider up in flames

Move in on you in a most sick century

And now you know you’ve got to know

And now you know you just can’t run

And now you know it’s all to nothing and it’s over

And now you know you’ve got to know

And now you know you just can’t run

And now you know it’s all to nothing and it’s over

You’re the girl who nicked my cage

Hangin’ on with the fingernails

And I see the blind come quick then fade

Another rider up in flames

Move in on you in a most sick century

And now you know you’ve got to know

And now you know you just can’t run

And now you know it’s all to nothing and it’s over

And now you know you’ve got to know

And now you know you just can’t run

And now you know it’s all to nothing and it’s over

Move in on you

Move in on you

Move in on you

The Charlatans Bona Fide Treasure

Do do do, do do do

Ohhhh, the old man gathers up his suitcase,

And heads for the sun,

Me, I’m looking for some bona fide treasure

And its dumb, dumb, dumb……

I’m telling you there’s a palace for all the old souls

Build myself a motor out of matchsticks for the run, run, run, run, run

Run rabbit run

Give me 2 good reasons why you don’t want me to come

I’m dying!

Can you help my ghost?

You’re the cream of the crop

The cheese on the top of my toast

Do do do, do do do…….

Roll up, roll up,

There’s some kind of news

You won’t find me

My lords and ladies

I’m not amused

I’m not amused

People come out laughing

Raise a glass to the land

Try to buy some cover here

I just want to lend a helping hand

Gimme, gimme, gimme that gun

I’ll give you 2 good reasons why I don’t want you to come

I’m dying

What will I become,

I’m the king of the park, with the queen on my back and it’s fun

Follow me, follow me into the sun

And give me two good reasons why you never wanted to come

I’m dying

Go get my gun

I’m the king of the park, with the queen on my back and it’s fun

Do do do, do do do

The Charlatans Blackened Blue Eyes

A Charlatan I

Noble and wild

Hustlin’ for tricks to help you feel loved

And we all need a shoulder to cry on…. once in a while

And there won’t be a dry eye

In the house tonight

Blackened blue eyes

I don’t care too much for your

Circumstances or you

Situation wise

A Charlatan I

Will blossom and die

One day you’ll find a real need for love

Or you live with the fear for

The rest of your life

And there won’t be a dry eye

In the house tonight

Blackened blue eyes

I don’t care too much for your

Circumstances or you

Situation wise

The one thing I hate

The numb and the fake

The gutless who rape

The jaws of a snake

We all need a best friend

We can trust with our lives till the end

And there won’t be a dry eye

In the house tonight

Blackened blue eyes

I don’t care too much much final chances

Ride out into a world of random

Prostitutes

I’ll show you some fantastic scenes

And it will be alright

Blackened blue eyes

Blackened blue eyes

Blackened blue eyes

The Charlatans (No One) Not Even The Rain

The first and lonely days have come

A sea of state

And a heaven unknown

And I don’t like the air that I breathe

It can’t escape from me

I don’t belong to this world no more to

Better myself why don’t you do it again

Why don’t you say it again why don’t you

Save me again I can’t do anything

Not even the rain has such small hands

Another kick my soul can’t stand

And I don’t like the air that I breathe

And I don’t like the air that I breathe

It can’t escape from me

I don’t belong to this world no more to

Better myself why don’t you do it again

Why don’t you say it again why don’t you

Save me again I can’t do anything

When honesty is mine to ride

A gem dissolving shadowslide

Down you better not drown

What are you going to do when the sky

Falls out of this world

I don’t belong to this world no more to

Better myself why don’t you do it again

Why don’t you say it again why don’t you

Save me again I can’t do anything

I don’t belong to this world no more to

Better myself why don’t you do it again

Why don’t you say it again why don’t you

Save me again I can’t do anything

The Charlatans A Man Needs To Be Told

A man needs to be told there is a world going on

There is a world going on

There is a world going on

A man needs to be told to look into the night

He will get lost in the day

He will get lost in the night

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A young boy once told me

I will be an old man and I am only 15

It wasn’t part of the plan

It wasn’t part of the dream

Ever wonder how much the man who wrote “White Christmas” made?

How evolution began

The revolution was fake

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told there is a war going on

There is a war going on

There is a war going on

A man needs to be told there is a truth in his eye

There is a rest in the dawn

There is a point to his life

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

A man needs to be told

The Charlatans Believe You Me

With all the world developments

Why do they make me laugh at you?

And all the world can take you for

Is something else, you’re so low

There’s someone else inside of me

Who doesn’t make me want to kill

And all the time you’re pushing me

I never knew that you were ill

And all the time you think you’re it

When you’ve got nothing else to give

Open it up and take it out

I’ll never know what’s under that

(Who was that) who killed your lover?

(Who was that) who killed your lover?

It wasn’t me

It wasn’t believe you me

Not me, not me, not me, not me

Who killed your lover

Who killed your lover

Not me, not me.

The Charlatans Back Room Window

Lookin in through the back room window

Just to see what’s happening here

See the sparks fly, I know, in your glory

I get opinions I get the stories

Lookin out from the back room window

Just to see where I go and I will go

I wish you could see

You never could be happy without me

Freeze in a nodulant county

All the walls come tumbling down

See the past and the future behind me

I could find the sweet drum and swallow the round

Waking up as that melody calls me

I can fly down oceans easy

I can wait

Swim anywhere to be where love grows

She’s drawing all the spikes from me

I’ve never felt so clean

She’s drawing all the spikes from me

I’ve never felt so clean

Drivin south through the park it belies eye spy

In the division on the east side of town

Feel the life and feel the pulse and arouse me

All the walls come tumbling down

Lookin out from the back room window

Just to see where you go and I will go

I wish you could see

You never could be happy without me

She’s drawing all the spikes from me

I’ve never felt so clean

She’s drawing all the spikes from me

I’ve never felt so clean

She’s tearing all the spikes from me

I’ve never felt so clean
