Lovelife    Lyrics

LADYKILLER
(Berenyi)
Here we go, I'm hanging out in Camden
Drink with my girlfriends on a Saturday night

This guy says, "come and meet my girlfriend"
She's sitting in the corner looking rather uptight

So I say "hello" and I try to be nice
But I see he's feeling itchy
Trying to play us off each other,
"Girls, girls, please don't fight" (you get the picture)

Hey you, the muscles and the long hair
Telling me that women are superior to men
Most guys just don't appreciate this
You just convincing me you're better than them

So he talks for hours about his sensitive soul
And his favorite subject is sex
I don't think he even wanted it
But, Christ this guy's too much (I wanna tell him)

I'm as human as the next girl,
I like a bit of flattery
But I don't need your practised lines, your school of charm mentality so
Save your breath for someone else and credit me with something more
When it comes to men like you,
I know the score,
I've heard it all before

(Here comes the next one)
Blondie was with me for a summer
He flirted like a maniac but I wouldn't bite
I'm weak and he was so persistent
He only had to have me 'cause I put up a fight

Oh God, the boy had such an ego
He liked to talk about himself all day and all night
You think you're such a ladykiller
But you were nothing special 'til you turned out the light

When he's nice to me he's just nice to himself
And he's watching his reflection
I'm a five foot mirror for adoring himself
Here's seven years bad luck (I wanna tell him)

When you say you love me you're just flattering your vanity
But I don't need your practised lines your, your school of charm mentality so
Save your breath for someone else and credit me with something more
When it comes to men like you,
I know the score,
I've heard it all before

Ooh, you're such a ladykiller, always on a winner, thinking that you're in there
Oh boy, you're such a ladykiller, super sexy mister, call it what you will, oh
You think you're such a lady killer, I just bet you're still there, posing in the mirror
Hey girls, he's such a ladykiller, but we know where he's coming from and we know the score.


HEAVENLY NOBODIES
(Berenyi)
Just because they seem to understand the way you feel
It doesn't mean they'll feel the same way too
Just because they seem to hold a mirror to your life
It doesn't follow that they'll be just like you

Take no heroes,
Its no good
They don't stand up to you
Just take the bit you think they can use

I remember when I was younger
I thought the answers were locked in people
So I admired the ones whose lives were a source of envy to people like me

But do you really want to meet
The ones who write your dreams
Believe me, it's a fantasy
You won't like the reality

If you want heroes keep them safe
They don't stand up to life
So lock them in your soul and lose the key

(I love you, I don't want to meet you)

When I see you it makes me feel
There's someone else out there like me
You touch my soul with what you do
It all makes sense when I hear you

You understand the way I feel
I know exactly what you mean
It's like I've known you all my life
I think of you I feel alright

But in the flesh how would it be
If you could really see
The weaknesses you never knew
Alive and staring back at you

If you want to heroes keep them safe
They don't stand up to life
So lock them in your soul and lose the key


500 (SHAKE BABY SHAKE;)
(Anderson)
Shake, baby, shake, you know I can fit you in my arms
Brake, baby, brake, taking me in with all you're charms

I've never been inside you but you're so alluring
They call you "little mouse" by name in Rome and Turin

Looking now at your famous shape
They don't make them like anymore

Shake, baby, shake, you know I can fit you in my arms
Brake, baby, brake, taking me in with all your charms

When things are looking good there's always complications
I can't be with you so I'm at the railway station

Let's run away and be so alive
Escape the drudgery of this nine to five

Shake, baby, shake, you know I can fit you in my arms
Brake, baby, brake, taking me in with all your charms

Shake, baby, shake, you know I worship from afar
Brake, baby, brake, how I wish you were my car


I'VE BEEN HERE BEFORE
(Anderson)
I've tried to be strong, I've tried to be tough
But I think that this time I've had more than enough
I've seen too much of your games and your immature stuff
You're a waste of time

All the people I've known thoughout all the years
Too many vodkas and too many beers
And I've learnt a few lessons from all of the tears
You're way out of line

I feel so lucky sometimes
I sit down and look at all my friends
They mean more than the stupid fools that pass my way

I used to prefer those who weren't good for me
Somehow the attraction beat reality
Now all the rubbish they spill, it means nothing to me
I'm just much more wise

Some people grow up and some only pretend
They're all over the place, these children dressed up as men
They can't imagine how a woman can be only a friend
And they deal in lies

I feel so lucky sometimes
I sit down and I listen to my friends
They say more than the empty words that pass my way

And I feel so lucky sometimes
I've got a feeling I've been here before
I can see the world for what it really is

You think that I'm jealous, well don't be so vain
I can tell in your voice you think I want you again
Well, if I did you know I think I'd be a little insane
You just leave me cold

Ooh, you and her in your sad little world
You can only exist with the help of a girl
Well, I'm glad it's not me, I've got my life to unfurl
You're just way too old

I feel so lucky sometimes
I sit down and I look at all my friends
They mean more than the stupid fools that pass my way

And I feel so lucky sometimes
I've got a feeling I've been here before
I've been here before


PAPASAN
(Berenyi)
Maybe I should make you stay away
So you can really concentrate on where you are today when you phone,

I sit and think alone
And wonder if your life with her is really as you say

Then again, you're still a friend
I'll be loyal to you 'til the end

Come to me with wounds you want to heal
I'll listen and I'll try to understand the way you feel

Never fear that I'll be gone from here
I'll always be around for you to talk to me, my dear

We can try to justify reasons for and reasons why
Some are true and some are only lies

With fingers crossed you close your eyes
And hope that things will turn out fine

There's not a lot that I can do
If you're too weak to face the truth

'Cause if the things you tell me are
The way you really claim they are
Then I can only pity you for being such a fool


Single Girl
(Anderson)
Single girl, I don't want to be a single girl
Single girl, I don't want to be a single girl

Don't want to be on my own again tonight
Don't want to put out the light

Single girl, I don't want to be a single girl
Single girl, who would want to be a single girl

Don't want to talk to myself again tonight don't want to put out the light

When you abandoned me
Well, it was heaven sent
When I abandoned you
It was what you meant
Well, it was me that knew it
And it was you that went
Haven't changed our minds it was meant to be

Don't want to clean up your mess again tonight
Don't want to be in a fight
And I can do what I want again tonight
With who I choose, it's alright

Single girl, I just want to be a single girl


CIAO!
(Berenyi)
I've been so happy since I walked away
I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today
'Cause you were nothing but a big mistake
And life is wonderful, now that I'm rid of you

Oh I must've been crazy to have stayed with you
I can't believe I thought I was in love with you
But now the scales have fallen I can really see
And I say go to hell, 'cause thats where you took me

Well, I've felt better since I slammed that door
You always cramped my style, I never noticed before
It's been a non-stop party since I flew the coop
I can't believe I fell for such a loser like you

And is it any wonder that I felt so blue
When I was always having to put up with you

Oh, here we go again, just lay the blame on me
Don't say another word, 'cause sweetheart, you're history

I know that you miss me really, bet you wish that you still had me
You'll never find someone like me but I've got no regrets at all

'Cause I've met this girl and she's so good to me
She's really beautiful, fantastic company
Oh, when I'm with her I realise what love can be
'Cause she's fifty times the person you will ever be

Good luck, mister, do you think I care?
Since you've been gone the offers have been everywhere
I've got a million guys just lining up for me
I've turned a corner, boy, my life is ecstasy

Well, I've been in heaven since I walk away
I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today
'Cause you were nothing but a waste of space
And life is wonderful now that I'm over you


TRALALA
(Anderson)
In this world I live in, I care for number one
Hell is round the corner, never trust no one

Funny how the people came to gather round
Oh, so many people when I was on the ground

I've never known what love is, there's no Mr.Right
If they want to treat me good, then that's their sorry plight

Funny how the people came to give their voice
Are they really people or just silly little boys?

Say what you want, I don't mind, I don't mind
Say what you need, I don't mind, I don't mind

I want all the people to notice who I am
Gotta show them what you've got or they won't give a damn

Say what you want, I don't mind, I don't mind
Say what you need, I don't mind, I don't mind


Last Night
(Anderson)
And even in your darkest hour
The recipe I cook for you
Can release its latent power
And make your body feel brand new

Can't you hear the music play
Being center of what you want
Try to leave the past behind
Memories don't appeal

All the things we said
All the things we did
All the things that passed
Were satisfied....


RUNAWAY
(Berenyi)
Come on boy, I wanna dance now
Line by line we talk all night, yeah

Hold me down, I think I'm flying
Everybody's eyes are shining
Runaway to where the world is fine

Hold on boy, you're falling fast now
Line by line you go no where, yeah

Drag me down I feel I'm sinking
Can't relate to what you're thinking
Runaway to where the sun don't shine

Hello, hello, are you still there?
You don't answer me 'cause you just don't care
Act so young but you look so old
And you're too far gone to find your own way home

Life's so hard for you to handle
You can't live without your devil
Boy, you think that you're so special
Well, life is hard for everyone, believe me

Hello, hello, do you still care?
You don't answer me 'cause there's no one there
Run away from your own sweet soul
And you're too far gone to find your own way home


THE CHILDCATCHER
(Berenyi)
"Baby," he says, "You are like the clean white page and I the pen.
The innocence I find between your girlish thighs is like the fountain of youth to my old bones."

And she replies, "Daddy's little girl's a precocious child
I love to please, I'll do anything that you ask of me
Eager to fulfill all of Daddy's needs."

"Baby," he says, "I can never love older girls like I love you.
You're easier to please and you never give me grief
'Cause you accept everything I say and do."

And she replies, "I'm in no position to make demands.
I have no past, no one else has done to me what you do.
I've got no one else to compare you to."

"And as you grow older, try to stay sixteen all your life,
Old women grow bitter, don't let that happen to you."

"And why is it charming pretending I'm younger than my years?
Why can't I grow up with dignity, set me free?"

"Baby," he says, "Now that you're older I feel our love has died.
Once upon a time you never criticised me.
Oh, I much preferred you as a child."

And I reply, "Everything you said to me was a lie.
I know your kind, you just want a daughter without a wife.
You don't need a girlfriend you need a life."


OLYMPIA (THE BEST SONG!)
(Anderson)
Will I ever be Olympia?
Will I ever be a girl like her?
Will I ever have to say the word
And instantly I'll be adored?

Could I ever deign to have the look
Instead of have to read a book?
Will I ever be Olympia?
Will I ever be a girl like her?

And if ever there's a will
There's a place in Notting Hill
You can go and visit still

And if ever there's a way
To find a hopeful ray
Will I find it all today?

Will I ever be Olympia?
Could I ever have a cat like her?
Could I ever lie around all day eating chocolate and marmalade?

Now it's time to find the perfect world
Dress myself up like the perfect girl
Could I ever be Olympia?
Could I ever be in love like her?

In chaos of our lives
Can we ever find the time
To cherish feeling fine

And in the aftermath of pain
Can the balance be regained?
Can we ever be the same?

And now, time to switch off
Sit down, turn the lights off
Lie back, treat this sofa like your own

Look out, here comes trouble
Look out, we're in a muddle
Keep running 'til you find you've reached your home

Could I ever be Olympia?

In the chaos of our lives
Can we ever find the time
To cherish feeling fine

And in the aftermath of pain
Can the balance be regained?
Can we ever be the same?

And now, time to switch off.
