The Hoosiers Lovers In My Head

I need a second opinion,

I want you cross-examined.

Where there’s a whill, there’s a way,

And there’s a will alright.

I close my eyes and count to ten,

And when I open them again,

I want you to pretend that when

You said no, you didn’t say a word.

Cos it’s easier.

We’re lovers in my heart,

We’re lovers in my soul,

I disregard what you said,

So close your eyes and watch the stars glow.

I like the face that is hanging

From your pretty little head,

I like the way that it’s body

Lies on my bed.

I’ve not met him but he’s handsome,

I’m sure you’ve made the perfect choice.

I go to tell you I love you,

But I lost my voice and couldn’t say a word.

Cos it’s easier.

Love flew away,

Love flew away from me,

Love flew away,

Love flew away,

The Hoosiers Sister Sister

She’s got magic in her fingertips

She’s turning me on now

Rubbing shoulders but not kissing lips

I’ll get her home somehow

She’s turning heads like a whiplash

You know she’s not to blame

I’ve got to wonder where you come from, baby

With that name

Sister, sister, you have all the fun and

I insist you leave some for everyone

I know I know it’s a cruel world for you

Sister, sister

Imagination getting fired up

She got the money to burn

I come to see you say you won’t mix with me

It’s my turn

Sister, sister, you have all the fun and

I insist you leave some for everyone

I know I know it’s a cruel world for you

Sister, sister you have all the fun and

I insist you leave some for everyone

I know I know it’s a cruel world for you

Sister, sister

Can’t stand to see you fall apart

Something has touched my hollow heart

And I can’t watch you do this to yourself

Ah ah ah ah ah

Sister, sister, you have all the fun and

I insist you leave some for everyone

I know I know it’s a cruel world for you

Sister, sister you have all the fun and

I insist you leave some for everyone

I know I know it’s a cruel world for you

Sister, sister

Sister, sister

Sister, sister

I know I know it’s a cruel world

I know I know it’s a cruel world

I know I know it’s a cruel world for you

The Hoosiers Somewhere In The Distance

You’ve got a lot of nerve

To try and bring me down

Maybe you haven’t heard

That’s not the way we run this town

Cos when the times are tough we turn them round

We’ve got a lot to lose

The stakes are staggering

But we don’t choose to use

The brakes that only ground us down

No, when the times are tough we’ll turn them round

Cling onto that sweet, sweet hope

Somewhere in the distance

You know that there must be somebody

Somewhere in the distance

How dare you be so bold

Despite the love we found

To let your blood run cold

In the heat of battle we built this town

Cos when the times are tough we’ll turn them round

So make hay while the sun shines on your face

Cos you’re young, but only once

It’s ok, life won’t stop if you make mistakes

Cos your luck is gonna change

Cling onto that sweet, sweet hope

Somewhere in the distance

Hang onto that sweet, sweet hope

That somewhere in the distance

You know that there must be somebody

Somebody for you

Somewhere in the distance

Cos when the times are tough we turn them round

Somewhere in the distance

(Cos when the times are tough we turn them round)

You know that there must be somebody

Somebody for you

Cling onto that sweet, sweet hope

Somewhere in the distance

Cling onto that sweet, sweet hope

That somewhere in the distance

You know that there must be somebody

You know that there must be somebody

You know that there must be somebody

They’re just out of view

Somewhere in the distance

The Hoosiers Wearing Down The Carpet

He walked for miles and miles but never left his room

Dramas unfolding in his head

Life threatening adventures from the comfort of the couch

A blazing fanfare that would never leave his lips

Nor even see the light of day

Earth shattering disasters from the safety of his settee

Oh oh! Oh oh! Wearing down the carpet

Oh oh! Oh oh! Content to end up where he started

Wearing down the carpet

They came from far and wide, just teacups in a storm

The universe like putty in his hands

All hail the conjurer who never left his room

Who never left his room

Oh oh! Oh oh! Wearing down the carpet

Oh oh! Oh oh! Content to end up where he started

Wearing down the carpet

He discovered worlds but never covered any ground

So many friends for someone so alone

Just a worn down carpet is all he has to show

Is all he has to show

Oh oh! Oh oh! Wearing down the carpet

Oh oh! Oh oh! Wearing down the carpet

Oh oh! Oh oh! Content to end up where he started

Wearing down the carpet

The Hoosiers Bumpy Ride

How does it feel

To spit out sunny skies?

And do you believe it’s for real?

That you’ve always got it right?

When the words you had explode,

And you swallow them up whole,

No you gotta let go let go,

You’ll love it when you let go let go let go.

It’s gonna be a bumpy ride

But it sure beats standing still.

I know we can work it out,

And I’ve no doubt that we will.

When it hurts more than it shows,

It’s not the easiest of roads.

No it’s never black and white,

And you can keep your happy life.

Isn’t it hard

Making it look so easy?

And you can never drop your guard

‘Cause you’re afraid of what you’ll see.

When the words to that affect.

Have no effect on you at all,

But you gotta let go let go,

You’ll love it when you let go

Let go let go.

It’s gonna be a bumpy ride

But it sure beats standing still.

I know we can work it out,

And I’ve no doubt that we will.

When it hurts more than it shows,

It’s not the easiest of roads.

No it’s never black and white,

And you can keep your happy life.

If only you could let go,

You’d love it if you let go.

If only you could let go,

If only you could let go let go let go.

The Hoosiers Sarajevo

We were the lucky few.

A luck we soon outgrew,

And now instead we drift again.

How I miss Sarajevo.

Oh we were lost at sea,

A pause for thought, the we

Slip beneath the foam and fall

Down to the seabed.

Good times die young,

For the Faraway Kids on the run.

Nowhere to hide.

The Faraway Kids.

The Faraway Kids.

At night, my soul sets sail

In minute detail.

When I wake, I cry. For I

I have lost Sarajevo.

Oh, the charges lacked all proof,

And failed to light the fuse

For the Little Brutes,

But I forsook Sarajevo.

Good times die young,

For the Faraway Kids on the run.

Nowhere to hide.

I can’t outrun

The terrible things I have done.

I can’t outrun

The Faraway Kids.

The Faraway Kids.

The Hoosiers Glorious

Take your sharp, sharp scissor-hands

And cut me some slack

And I’ll spin you in wool,

And pull it over your eyes,

Because I’m charming.

Take a long, long look at me

And give me light,

Cos the flame has expired,

It tired of my many flaws

And went up in smoke.

I can make you feel better,

I can make you feel much, much better than,

I can make you feel better than this, this, this, this.

Glorious.

Make me feel glorious

Once more.

And I won’t let you down.

Glorious.

Make me feel glorious

Once more.

Time will only tell.

Take that sharp, sharp tongue of yours

And cut me in two,

I’ll attack from both sides

And hide under your skin,

Because I need you.

Don’t make me cry, it’s bad enough

I made it hell for all of us.

What’s it like being glorious?

Glorious.

Can I please be glorious

Like you?

Time will only tell.

The Hoosiers Choices

In the morning

I could take the burning sun

I could be the only warning but I’m not the only

So forgive me, Cause its more than I can bear

In demand I make my mind up by deciding not to care

Stop giving me choices

Stop giving me choices

I’m the victim, of this day and age

I’ve forgotten how to feel

I’ve forgotten how to change

So I surrender, to the apple of my eye

I surrender to the wind, I will let the wind decide

Stop giving me choices (woah oo)

Stop giving me choices (Woah oo)

Stop giving me choices (woah oo)

Stop giving me choices (Woah oo)

I could Break it, I could break it till it hurts

I could take Whatever words you say, Pretend I never heard

So Forgive me, Shouldn’t be so hard

It’s they way I’m put together, so your never getting past

Cant we talk this through

Actions are not what I’m used to

Cant we talk this through

Actions are not what I’m used to

Stop giving me choices (woah oo)

Stop giving me choices (Woah oo)

Stop giving me choices (woah oo)

Stop giving me choices (Woah oo)

(I surrender)

Stop giving me choices (woah oo)

Stop giving me choices (Woah oo)

(Just forgive me)

Stop giving me choices (woah oo)

Stop giving me choices (Woah oo)

Without Friction, We Would float up into space

Maybe you could be the friction that will keep me in my place

In the morning, I could take the burning sun

I could be the only warning but I’m not the only one

The Hoosiers Nathan’s Loft

The rescue team reports one casualty at number sixteen Terrance Road

The excavated site, truly spick and span as it was ever saw

There was no wrecking ball

No sign of dynamite

No evidence at all of foul play

There simply came a day

When poor old Nathan’s loft

Came tumblin’ down upon him

Crumbling beneath the weight of years of loft expectation

He spent his days collecting endless possibilities

He kept them safe

Locked in the loft, they slept

Waiting ’til the day he’d call them to his aid

No sign of disrepair

No not the slightest turn

And the fabric of the sorum house that lay beneath

Imagine the disbelief

When poor old Nathan’s loft

Came tumblin’ down upon him

Crumbled underneath the weight of years of lofty expectation

Nathan’s loft

Came tumblin’ down upon him

He lost it all despite an overwhelming sense of preservation

Nathan’s loft

Nathan’s loft

Nathan’s loft

The Hoosiers Goodbye Mr A

Goodbye Mr. A

There’s a hole in your logic

You who know all the answers (oh-oh-oh-oh)

You claim science ain’t magic (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)

And expect me to buy it

Goodbye Mr. A

You promised you would love us, but you knew too much

Goodbye Mr. A

You had all the answers but no human touch

If life is subtraction

Your number is odd

Your love is a fraction

It’s not adding up

So busy showing me where I’m wrong

You forgot to switch your feelings on, (Oh-oh-oh-oh)

So, so superior, are you not

You love a little bit but you forgot

Goodbye Mr. A

You promised you would love us, but you knew too much

Goodbye Mr. A

You had all the answers but no human touch

If life is subtraction

Your number is odd

Your love is a fraction

It’s not adding up

Goodbye Mr. A

Goodbye Mr. A

Goodbye Mr. A

The world was full of wonder until you opened my eyes

Goodbye Mr. A

Wish you hadn’t blown my mind and killed the surprise

Goodbye Mr. A

You promised you would love us, but you knew too much

Goodbye Mr. A

You had all the answers but no human touch

Your life is subtraction

Your number is odd

Your love is a fraction

It’s not adding up
