Sleeping Beauty Butterfly
Cold World Alibi For Life In Case You Forget


Sleeping Beauty

Me and my friends, well, we all agree
It's the saddest thing that we've ever seen
Do yourself a favour - be a saviour
To yourself

Chorus:
(Ooh la la la)
(Ooh la la la)
Sleeping Beauty
(Ooh la la la)


I hope you wake up soon
There's so much more I want from you
Why don't you call me when you do?


Sometimes I wish you'd put yourself first
There's no knights in shining armour - we're all cursed, for better or worse
Do yourself a favour - be a saviour to yourself

Repeat chorus

Why don't you wake up soon
There's so much more I want for you
Why don't you call me when you do?

Bridge:
Feels like you've been gone for a hundred years
It's like you're here - but you're not here



Repeat chorus

You've got to wake up soon
It's been too long - we're missing you
I'll always be here if you do

I hope you're gonna wake up soon



Butterfly

You will find breaking hearts in every gilded cage
But someone else has got the keys
And just won't act his age

Chorus:
She's a pretty thing
A butterfly, on a pin
He keeps her away from the world



Cinema's on Saturdays, there's so much he will miss
Each time he leaves, he'll close the door
And seal it with a kiss

She's a pretty thing
A butterfly, on a pin
He keeps her away from the world
Where no-one can hear her, no-one can get near her


Bridge:
Oh, oh
But she's lost the things in her mind
By which she's defined



Where are you gonna go when he's done with you?
There's nowhere else for you to turn
When you're borrowed and blue

You're a pretty thing
A butterfly, on a pin
He keeps you away from the world
Where no-one can hear you, no-one can get near you


She's a pretty thing (He keeps you away from the world)
A butterfly, on a pin
She's a pretty thing (He keeps you away from the world)
A butterfly, who's lost her wings


Repeat refrain

She's a pretty thing
A butterfly




Cold World

It's a cold, cold world
A cold, cold world


Everybody's trying to tell me
Tell me where I'm going wrong
And everybody's trying to hurt me
Can't see where I'm coming from

Now everybody tells me you're special
I say you're skinny and all
Yeah I remember how you used to hold1 me
Remember all the lies you told?

Chorus:
Well I heard it before and it cuts to the call/core1
Of my song here
I can take it no more
'Cause my heart's on the floor1
Did you notice?
And what I'm trying to say is...

It's a cold, cold world
A cold, cold world



Look at all your beautiful people
Speaking oh so eloquantly
Tell yourself you're very happy
But I know you're gonna miss me

Repeat chorus


Everybody tells me their problems
I tell them where they're going wrong
But I don't have all the answers
I see where they're coming from

See I heard it before and it cuts to the call
Of my song here, yes it does
I can take it no more
'Cause my heart's on the floor
Did you notice?
And what I'm trying to say is...

It's a cold, cold world (It's a cold world)
A cold, cold world (It's a cold world)


It's a cold, cold world (It's a cold world)
A cold, cold world (It's a cold world)




Alibi For Life

Maybe you're better off alone
Having to laugh at your own jokes
'Cause nobody's home
When you come down off that throne
Gotta remind you the way that
You used to be yawned

I'm always pulling you up
You're letting me down
'Cause baby I found an...

Chorus:
Alibi for life, is what you want
Just another note from your mother
To say you can't make it
Fake explanations don't work no more
An alibi for life is what you're
Living for

Na-na na-na na na-na
Woah



Maybe you're better off dead
At least you wouldn't have to check your messages
And all that swimming around your head
Helps you to focus on "Couldn't care less"

You're always somewhere else
Doing nothing wrong, with a friend
Who can prove it

Repeat chorus

Bridge:
You missed the bus, you got a flat
You couldn't wait, no, no, you couldn't do that
You got a toothache, you got a bad break
You lost your keys in the bottom of a big lake
You took a wrong turn, you ate a bad egg
You pulled the muscle in the back of your leg
Couldn't get the car, your head got late
There's always someone else to blame



You're always wondering what I'm saying
'Cause you're wearing me down
And I'm having my doubts now

An alibi for life, is what you want
Not pleading with the meter-maid
A sultana with a hatchback*
You say you're sorry - I ain't so sure
An alibi for life - hey - that's what you're
Living for

Na-na na-na na na-na
Na-na na-na na na-na
Na-na na-na na na-na
Na-na na-na na na-na



Woah, yeah-yeah
Woah, yeah-yeah
Woah, yeah-yeah
Woah, yeah-yeah


Do you need an alibi?



In Case You Forget

I want you (I want you)
I need you (I need you)
In case you forget (in case you forget)

Repeat x3


When I had nothing, you were there
And when I had no-one who really cared

So I found myself believing that I'm no good
That nothing's ever right for me
Then you told me that you'd hold me until you'd die
Though we're still alive

Chorus:
In case you forget, know that I want you
Know that I need you
In case you forget, know that I love you
'Til the end of time


('Til the end of time)
Repeat x6


When you are hurting, I'll be there
And when you need someone, I still care

If you find yourself believing that you're no good
That nothing's ever right for you
Well I'll tell you that I'll hold you until we die
Can't you see that we're still alive

Repeat chorus

(In case you forget)
Repeat to fade
