Hey!Hello! Lyrics thread

Postby Mattie » 23rd Dec 12, 16:37

Hi there.

I've been enjoying Hey!Hello! far too much to actually sit down and write out the lyrics as I hear them, but the time has come!

As always, there are portions where I have no idea, bits I've guessed and parts I've heard clearly after a lot of listens

Any suggestions, corrections and amendments are welcome!

I'll post this thread to the AllThingsWildhearts group as well.

So...

BLACK VALENTINE wrote:
I ain't angry or nothin' I just wanted to be alone
And I knew you'd never wanna go home
And if you really must know I masturbated to porn online
I finished up with a bottle of wine

No I didn't think of you when I came, or the girl on the screen
I thought "The car needs a bit of a clean"

I just spent a little time with myself
I had my head down by a quarter to twelve
I read a few more pages of Shantaram
That I've been fightin' since Jan 2010

Here we go, through (for?) the trip, once again

Oh oh Valentine, clear your mind
And wake me when it's over
Black Valentine, one more time
And I swear this door is a closer
Black Valentine, Baby
We're drivin' ya crazy

I ain't busy or nothin' I just don't wanna take your call
It ain't (ached?) a ?lot? far as I can recall
You're like a ?? ?? ??
wound tight like a ?nylon bride?
but to your mast I don't wanna be tied

You got the grey sky smile like the weather's about to change
I'll stay inside dry if it's all the same.

I just spent a little time with myself
Cause it's the best choice for my general health
it didn't do ya no harm and do ?me? no good
I put my boots up, cause I said that I would

Maybe you'd
do the same
if you could

Oh oh Valentine, clear your mind
And wake me when it's over
Black Valentine, one more time
And I swear this door is a closer
Black Valentine, Baby
We're (you're?) drivin' ya crazy

Oh oh Valentine, clear your mind
And wake me when it's over
Black Valentine, one more time
And I swear this door is a closer

Black Valentine, clear your mind
And wake me when it's over
Black Valentine, baby
You're (we're?) drivin' ya crazy.

I'm addicted
I'm addicted to you
I contain all the pain that I'm puttin you through

I'm afflicted
the hook is deep in the skin
There's no solution to the mess that I'm in

I keep
?? ?? ?? but it ?? ?? long?
I keep
Doubtin' the flesh, but it's so damn strong

I'm infected, just as I expected
To the line
But my ?? ?? shi-i-i-i-ine

Hey, it's ok
Not all days can be beautiful days
Hey, it's ok
Not all days can be beautiful days
nah ah ah

[Misery, torment, rage and despair, go back to ?? ?? ?phase?]

I'm inactive??
The curse is on me again
I might as well count back from one hundred and ten

So defective
I'm givin' nothin' to choice
Unless governed by a single voice

I see
Diamond nights, and the days so black
I see
The death of light, offer no way back

I'm distracted
much as I ?directed?
On the floor
with my nerve endings raw

Hey, it's ok
Not all days can be beautiful days
Hey, it's ok
Not all days can be beautiful days
nah ah ah

na na na na
na na na na
na na na na

<choral singing of guitar lines part!>
Hey, hey hey hey heeey heeeey

Hey, it's ok
Not all days can be beautiful days
Hey, it's ok
Not all days can be beautiful days
Hey, it's ok
Not all days can be beautiful days
Hey! it's ok!
Not all days! Can be beautiful days.



WHY CAN'T I BE ME WITHOUT YOU wrote:
Well I got off the phone when you said leave me alone, now baby
What d'ya think that I was tryin' to do
Why d'ya think that I'm always ?tryin? again??

And with the hours ?that'd? save
If you'd learn to behave
There is nothing that she wouldn't do

Why, why can't I just be me without you?
Why. Can't. I. Be. Me. With. Out. You?

So say hello, when you go stealin' the show
You know it

But man we wade through it all again
Such a lot of time to face away the ?list?

So d-d-damn it man
You know how busy (crazy?) I am
Now tell me what are you hopin' to prove?

Why, why can't I just be me without you?
Why. Can't. I. Be. Me. With. Out. You?

D-d-d-damn it man, you know how busy I am
Now tell me what are you hopin' to prove?
Why, why can't I just be me without you?

Why. Can't. I. Be. Me. With. Out. You?
Why. Can't. I. Be. Me. With. Out. You?

Enter the dragon, get into the light
Well alright, alright, gonna be alright (yeeahhhh)
Enter the dragon, get into the light
Well alright, alright, gonna be alright.

When the fires of Hell see the world ignite
Gonna light the cigar I've been waitin' to light

OH YEAH

If I say I'm breakin'
If I break on through
Then it's only 'cause I wanted it more than you

OH YEAH

BURN THE RULEBOOK (FUCK IT) wrote:
Sweet sweet, darling darling, now
Don't get so heavy hearted
Let's get the good times started
Before they turn to shit

Sweet sweet, darling darling, now
Don't get so heavy hearted
Let's get the good times started
Before they turn to shit
Let's burn the rulebook, fuck it!

We're shiftin' chicken ?? bingo wings
We're ditchin' ice cream and onion rings
Rockin' Omega threee, six and nine
We're gettin' jiggy with the waistline

We had a funky little booze run
But now it's time to get your shoes on
but if the ?? begins to ?? ?ya?
put the ?ID? in the incinerator

Sweet sweet, darling darling, now
Don't get so heavy hearted
Let's get the good times started
Before they turn to shit
Let's burn the rulebook, fuck it!

Call up the guys, say we're jumpin ship
?out to? a body shapin' membership
??We do every sin at night time??
We ?do it? juice(r)s and a red wine

<DODGY VERSE>
We're gettin so fresh and so clean
We're eatin up a mess of protein
?But if? endorphine in my latest stop
I take my baby and I lick her up
<DODGY VERSE>

Sweet sweet, darling darling, now
Don't get so heavy hearted
Let's get the good times started
Before they turn to shit

Sweet sweet, darling darling, now
Don't get so heavy hearted
Let's get the good times started
Before they turn to shit
Let's burn the rulebook, fuck it.
Aaaaah, ahhhhhh.



LOCK FOR ROCK wrote:
Been lookin for ?? ?? around ?with the? weekend
I'm getin' ??stuck unstuck?? on stuff??
I'm comin' in at the deep end

Quick as shit
I'm gettin struck by nostalgia
while tryin to be a little less Kiss than Nirvana

I'm only gettin' Lock For Rock
And I'm gettin' ?Get It Up? (Giddy up!?)
I'm gettin Follow Your Gut and other sporting cliches
And I'm thinkin' walk Away
Say whatever you wanna say, or say nothin'
Either way a cliche is a cliche

And I'm sayin'
Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh

So, sense of duty's attached to the pencil
Cliche is being ?politically? tied to credentials
I'll write about injystice when I'm good and ready
Today is only a ???? ????? ??? Dave Meniketti

I'm only gettin' Lock For Rock
And I'm gettin' Get It Up
I'm gettin Follow Your Gut and other sporting cliches
And I'm thinkin' walk Away
Say whatever you wanna say, or say nothin'
Either way a cliche is a cliche

I'm only gettin' Lock For Rock
And I'm gettin' Get It Up
I'm gettin Follow Your Gut and other sporting cliches
And I'm sayin'
Whoa oh oh


THE THRILL OF IT ALL wrote:
Takes his alcohol every afternoon at five
It helps him to forget that he don't like bein' alive
He's hard to picture as someone who's friends with anyone
Jesus, let alone a friend of mine

When you get bored of the thrill of it all
You won't be comin' right back to me no more
Baby
When you get bored of the thrill of it all
You won't be comin' right back to me
Cause the door's closed and you ain't gettin' a key.

She rattled when she walked now she don't walk anywhere no more
Whisky with her curds and whey then leaves the tray outside the door
She's hard to picture super keen to finish anything
If inherited ways are worn?

When you get bored of the thrill of it all
You won't be comin' right back to me no more
Baby
When you get bored of the thrill of it all
You won't be comin' right back to me
Cause the door's closed and you ain't gettin' a key.


HOW I SURVIVED THE PUNK WARS wrote:
I get people saying: "well it's alright for you, you get fans to fund your albums but what do I do, if I haven't got fans?"
To which I reply: "Well you've still got to work hard, and get off your backside"

STOP

Listen, you want a shortcut? Better learn to suck cocks, get a new fucking haircut!
But if you want to take your 15 minutes of fame and stretch it out over 40 odd years in this game
Better learn a little word, it's called integrity, and it involves you listening to people like me.

You know if a new tune is good or it's shit
so you want a good song? be prepared to re-write it.
Before you spend a fortune on studio expense, rehearsing the fuck out of your songs makes a lot of sense.

Play lots of gigs
Play three times a day
Play every show like it's the last one you'll ever play.

How do you do it?
How. do. you. do. it.?
Well you can start by stopping eating the bullshit.

So DON'T get a manager with dozens of bands
Get someone who loves you, with time on their hands
DON'T play the music you DON'T want to play, regardless of what all the experts might say
and fuck all the experts, with all due respect
'cause noone's an expert on what's coming next

It could be you!
So you better believe in your songs, otherwise success won't stay around you for long

Ask lots of questions, don't eat the bullshit
Ask lots of questions, don't eat the bullshit
Ask lots of questions, don't eat the bullshit
Ask lots of questions, don't eat the bullshit
Ask lots of questions, don't eat the bullshit
Ask lots of questions, don't eat the bullshit

And...
If you get fans who enjoy what you do, remember they're no bigger or smaller than you
so show them your gratitude, don't act the tit
work harder than any other band on the circuit

DON'T play for cash, and set realistic goals
Don't get into smack and hang around with arseholes
Don't moan on tour, put your back into it
But most of all...

Don't. Eat. The. Bullshit.



I'M GONNA KISS YOU IKE I'M GOING AWAY wrote:
I'm gonna kiss you every day like I'm goin' away
For a long long time, a long long time.
Gonna kiss you every day, like I'm goin' away
For a long long time, a long long long long time.

I've been spendin' too much time abroad
With more days off in hotels in Finland feelin' bored
Whatever they tell you, rock and roll
Oh don't believe the hype
No, diggity!
We all swapped our gin and heroin for Skype

These days, I've been spendin' less time workin' every night
hhan I'm spendin' stuck in airports waitin' for connecting flights
Then I'm sent up to another room, upon another floor, yeah!
Where I get to sit around and wait a little more

Damn, I
Wanna kiss you every day, like I'm goin away
For a long long time, a long long time#
Gonna kiss you every day, like I'm goin' away
For a long long time, a long long long long time.

We've been sayin' goodbye too many times
While the taxi waits to drag me off and leave you both behind
then I'm standin' in a freezin' station waitin' for a train
While I try my best to beat the urge to turn around again

then cut to mornin'I'm alone again, in bed
I wanna tell you that I miss you, but I'm seven hours ahead
and then I come back broke from ringin' bills up on the phone
I had to quit that gig and split and now I'm home

I'm gonna kiss you every day like I'm goin' away
For a long long time, a long long time.
Gonna kiss you every day, like I'm goin' away
For a long long time, a long long long long time.



WE'RE OUTTA HERE wrote:
Buildings fell while the little ?eyes? watched.
All day, all night
Mommys and kids and bricks on top
oh yeah, oh right

So killin' is where the money goes
Why the kids are starvin' now we know
(bees) They're insane down below

"We're outta here" they said
We're off to somewhere else instead
We've seen enough, we're wastin' time
You've gone too far to change your mind

They said "we're outta here"
We need a better atmosphere
When you've run out of stuff to buy
Someday you'll wish that you could fly

he you don't trust kids in certain clothes
Oh yeah, oh right
While the criminals in suits are ?free? to ??
Oh yeah, oh right

You claim your gods are a diffrent guy
And you say he wants you to hate and lie
(bees) We'll take our chances in the sky

"We're outta here" they said
We're off to somewhere else instead
We've seen enough, we're wastin' time
You've gone too far to change your mind

They said "we're outta here"
We need a better atmosphere
When you've run out of stuff to buy
Someday you'll wish that you could fly

(bees)
This, is the ?global? ???? federation
We have fled your inhospitable planet
Enjoy your honey
Enjoy the honey
Enjoy the honey

For Black Valentine

I ain't busy or nothin' I just don't wanna take your call
It ain't the law far as I can recall
You're like a ??pressure tank king??
wound tight like a nylon bride
but to your mast I don't wanna be tied

I thought it was 'Bound tight like a siren bride' ??
Kind of made more sense with the next line
