The Cribs Pink Snow

But were you better on your own?

To all my sisters I promise you this that

I’ll try and be brave for you

I’ll try and be brave for you

You’re sitting behind those walls

No one to visit, head full of regret

And sometimes I forget too

And you don’t even have a clue

Were you better on your own?

To all my sisters I promise you this that

I’ll try and be brave for you

I’ll try and be brave for you…yeah

As someone you’ll never know

Do you picture me alone?

Now the bird that sung has flown

Do you picture me alone?

[x2]

But were you better on your own?

To all my sisters I promise you this that

I’ll try and be brave for you

I’ll try and be brave for you

And maybe I’ll never know

But something tells me that somewhere in Maryland

A cherry blossom grows

Bury me with pink snow

Were you better on your own?

To all my sisters I promise you this that

I’ll try and be brave for you

I’ll try and be brave for you…yeah

As someone you’ll never know

Do you picture me alone?

Now the bird that sung has flown

Do you picture me alone?

[x2]

But were you better on your own?

To all my sisters I promise you this that

I’ll try and be brave for you

I’ll try and be brave for you

Brave for you

Bury me with pink snow…

The Cribs Butterflies

Waiting for my friend to wake up

So we can talk in the night

like the old days

Though you like the songs I sing to you

all the words they are untrue

but I’ll promise, just like I always do

though you like the songs I sing to you

all the words are no longer true

but I’ll promise, just like I always do

I need to see the world

through her eyes now

It seems she thinks

all leaves are butterflies now

Though you like the songs I sing to you

all the words they are untrue

but I’ll promise, just like I always do

though you like the songs I sing to you

all the words are no longer true

but I’ll promise, just like I always do

The Cribs Mirror Kissers

You aren’t allowed to say that you’re better

You aren’t allowed to say that cause you’re the hipster type, the type (whoa oh)

You’ve got a lot to say, but don’t mention

The mirror kissing ways of the hipster type, the type (whoa oh)

You aren’t allowed to say anything

We kicked around down water lane

But you’re not all, all there

You aren’t allowed to say anything

You left me on the street, talking to drains

Cause you’re not all, all there

You aren’t allowed to say that you’re better

You aren’t allowed to say that cause you’re the hipster type, the type (whoa oh)

You’ve got a lot to say, but don’t mention

The mirror kissing ways of the hipster type, the type (whoa oh)

You aren’t allowed to say that cause you’re the hipster type, the type (whoa oh)

You’ve got a lot to say, but don’t mention

The mirror kissing ways of the hipster type, the type (whoa oh)

You like to tell yourself that I’m nobody

I think you must have known I’d make you sorry

You like to tell yourself that I’m nobody

I think you must have known I’d make you sorry

You aren’t allowed to say that you’re better

The Cribs Men’s Needs

Have you noticed

I’ve never been impressed

By your friends from New York and London?

I’ll level, accusations like the press

til you realise that you’ve dressed yourself in tatters

Because a man’s needs, man’s needs

Are found on greed, are found on greed

A man’s needs, man’s needs

Are lost on me

A man’s needs, man’s needs

Are found on greed, are found on greed

A man’s needs

I’m not bothered, what you say or how you dress

I’m a mess, so you’ve always seemed inviting

But really, this all seems quite meaningless

And I remember, that you never seem to see

The fact that men’s needs, men’s needs

Are found on greed, are found on greed

A man’s needs, man’s needs

Are lost on me

A girl’s needs, girl’s needs

Just don’t agree, just don’t agree

With a man’s needs

Have you noticed, I’ve never been impressed

By your friends from New York and London?

But really, this all seems quite meaningless

And I remember that you never seem to see

The excuse that men’s needs, men’s needs

Are found on greed, are found on greed

A man’s needs, man’s needs

Are lost on me

You say your man’s needs, man’s needs

Apply to me

I don’t agree

A man’s needs

Oh-oh! Oh-oh!

The Cribs Like A Gift Giver

Little birds in a box of tea

just waiting to die

Like a gift giver I will change the way

that you see, or I’ll try

But I know, it’s not even

but try when you’re in Heaven

to call me up

It’s hard to believe in anything

that I’ve learned in my life

but whisper something trivial

that sounds good and I might

But I know, it’s not even

but try when you’re in Heaven

to call me up

The Cribs The Lights Went Out

Why can’t I be like the one who went over?

It’s over, get over, woah-oh

Why can’t I be like the one who went over?

It’s over, get over, woah-oh

Thought it wasn’t right to tease me

When no one was around

And you turned me up, and you broke my heart

And you said, yeah you heard every sound

Got really hot in the morning

So I went to blow me down

And you don’t know when the lights went out

But the lights are out now

Don’t know what you do, but oh

Why can’t I be like the one who went over?

It’s over, get over, woah-oh

Why can’t I be like the one who went over?

It’s over, get over, woah-oh

Supposed to connect some New York boys

Would have had to go way out of town

And I want no drugs, couldn’t get the stuff

And you know what, I think they hate me now

Got really hot in the morning

So I went to blow me down

And you don’t know when the lights went out

But the lights are out now

Don’t know what you do, but oh

Why can’t I be like the one who went over?

It’s over, get over, woah-oh

Why can’t I be like the one who went over?

It’s over, get over, woah-oh

Why can’t I be like the one who went over?

It’s over, get over, woah-oh

Why can’t I be like the one who went over?

It’s over, get over, woah-oh

The Cribs My Life Flashed Before My Eyes

The wrong time, the wrong place

Your talent scouts my lonely face

Of all the things i can’t replace

Your talent scouts my lonely face

Yeah

Well it’s alright, although i know you lied

I don’t mind

It’s alright, although i know you lied

I don’t mind

The wrong time, the wrong place

Your talent scouts my lonely face

Of all the things i can’t escape

Your talent scouts my lonely face

Yeah

Well i’m alright, although i know you lied

I don’t mind

If my life flashed before my eyes

Do you think I’d mind?

No

And now, you don’t need mine

You let us down

You watched us die

Now, I hang around

With people i don’t even know

The Cribs Diamond Girl

Underneath your rainbow

You bring me too my knees

You keep me up at midnight

Till the end of the day at least

You don’t have to hear the blood screams

Of those living out their dreams

So it makes no sense to you

How they end up like they do

Like they do

Sometimes I wonder if I got you wrong

You don’t have to agree

We’re all as straight as you want us to

Diamond girl how did you get so free?

You’re not as straight as they want you to be

Always be you and I’ll always be me

We’ll never be as straight as they want us to be

Got you wrong, you don’t have to agree

Find me in the city where no one knows my name

We can pick up where we left off

I’m so happy that you came

Even in this body, no stones in my mind

Still the same as always

And I’ll always be where you are

Oh where you are

Sometimes I wonder if I got you wrong

You don’t have to agree

We’re all as straight as you want us to

Diamond girl how did you get so free?

You’re not as straight as they want you to be

Always be you and I’ll always be me

We’ll never be as straight as they want us to be

Got you wrong, you don’t have to agree

Diamond girl how did you get so free?

Foil wrapped in a blister pack

Gotta get my freedom back

Foil wrapped in a blister pack

I have gotta get my freedom back

Sometimes I wonder if I got you wrong

You don’t have to agree

We’re all as straight as you want us to

Diamond girl how did you get so free?

You’re not as straight as they want you to be

Always be you and I’ll always be me

We’ll never be as straight as they want us to be

Got you wrong, you don’t have to agree

The Cribs Moving Pictures

You’ll sleep tonight

Dream dreams where I would die

It’s alright, it’s alright

They did not come true

Although they will do, in time

It’s alright, it’s alright

Fakes, liars and stars of moving pictures

What’s the difference?

Like all the parts that I’m not into

But I see in you

Not real brown eyes look into mine

But I was so shy

It’s alright

You’ll sleep tonight

Dream dreams where I would die

It’s alright, it’s alright

Fakes, liars and stars of moving pictures

What’s the difference?

Like all the parts that I’m not into

But I see in you

Guarded thoughts

Firing off

Parting shots

Missing lots

Guarded thoughts

Firing off

Parting shots

Missing lots

Liars, fakes and stars of moving pictures

What’s the difference?

Like all the parts that I’m not into

But I see in you
