KEVIN COYNE LYRICS - ALBUM: Stumbling Onto Paradise 1987

I'm Still Here (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne)

Walking by your tiny house, all the blinds are down

Shadows, memories, footsteps they're all around

I can see a smiling face almost everywhere

I wonder sometimes i f you ever really cared

I'm a liberated man, I'm a liberated man, I'm a liberated man but I don't understand

You know that I'm, I'm still here and I'll never go away now (x3)

You know that I'm, I'm still here

So many memories but I'm used to that now

I cried a million tears, can't cry anymore and nohow

But some lonely nights when I'm on my own

I really wonder how you feel so all alone

I'm a liberated man, I'm a liberated man, I'm a liberated man sometimes I don't understand

You know that I'm, I'm still here and I'll never go away now (x3)

You know that I'm, I'm still here, yes I am

You know that I'm, I'm still here and I'll never go away now (ad lib)


Pack of Lies (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne )

Somebody said it's raining cats and dogs (x2)

I don't believe it, I can see no rain (x2)

All those lies, wonder why (x2)

Somebody said that we will all be saved (x2)

I don't believe them, we will not be saved (x2)

All those lies, wonder why (x2)

Chorus: Just a pack of lies (x4).

Somebody said that the moon was blue (x2)

I don't believe it and neither did you (x2)

All those lies, wonder why (x2)

Chorus

Lies, lies, lies

Somebody said that the moon was blue (x2)

I don't believe it and neither did you (x2)

All those lies, wonder why (x2)

Chorus

Lies, lies


How is you Luck (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne)

I can see you sad eyes shining now

In some sordid silly bar

Wandering, weaving round and round

Wondering who the hell you are

I can see the dark and windy streets

I can see the rain it's pourng down

You need someone to hold you up

Maybe maybe I'm your man

Chorus: How is your luck now darling, how is it now?

How is your luck now darling, get through somehow.

We'll get along

I can see the slippery slimly streets

There's a shadow on your little back

I can see the lightning up above

I can hear the thunder crack

I can see you walking, walking home

To your tiny little flat

You tell me that you love me this time

And... that is that

Chorus

We'll get along (x2)

Please take me home, we'll get along (x2)

Chorus (ad lib)


Sunshine Home (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne)

Stumbling onto paradise, big wings on my back

I'm in such a holy groove, I'm on the right track

All the birds and big fat bees humming melodies

I can see the twilight grooving through the big big trees

Chorus: Taking a trip to the sunshine home

You're never alone at the sunshine home.

Old folks and young folks dancing up and down

Hey look at that fat man, he is playing the clown

I can see the big blue river and the big white birds

Gonna keep up flying, happy and absurd, we're all crazy here

Chorus - Solo - Chorus

I'm so speechless that I just can't move

I'm so happy that I'm in the paradise groove

Funky hunky monkey man, happy for the very last time

Hold hands with me right now, I'll show you what's mine, come on

Chorus x2


Tear me Up (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne)

Tear me up, I'm just a book (x4)

Tear me up (x4)

I'm just a book

I'm in love, don't break my heart (x4)

I'm in love (x4)

Don't break my heart

I'm living in a fairy story

I met a princess

I'm living in a fairy story

I've got her adress

Tear me up, I'm just a book (x4)

Tear me up (x8)

I'm just a book


No Revolution (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne)

What ever happened to seventy six?

Sex Pistols up to their tricks

Johnny Rotten, mean as mean

The meanest punk I've ever seen

All that money, energy

All that power thronw away

It lies in Californian sand

Everything is out of hand

Chorus: No revolution, bad constitution (x2)

Whatever happened to rock'n'roll?

The rebel music, the music of old

All the energy's dead and gone

But we just carry on

Euro pop, euro pap music for young mils sops

Music to make you die on your feet

Where's that heavy rebel beat?

Chorus - Solo - Chorus

But I still have hope

I'm no cold bourgeois dope

I can still stand up and fight

I can still hold up a light

I'm not so run out

You can still hear me scream and shout

Tell them everyone, Kevin is here

He's paid a price but he's not too dear

Chorus (x2)

Maybe, maybe, I don't know


Victoria Smiles (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne)

Victoria smiles with those painted eyes, she's just look ing for a friend

Victoria smiles with those painted eyes, maybe she'll find one in the end

Victoria smiles cross the party room, he's dancing with a younger girl

Victoria smiles with those painted eyes, it's a cruel and wicked world

Chorus:

Can you really trust him, do you really need him, you wanted more than just a friend (x2).

Victoria smiles with those painted eyes, as she takes the taxi home

Victoria smiles with those painted eyes, sits in the back seat on her own

Chorus

Down to Westbourne Grove, up the Portobello Road, up and down and back again

Down to Battersea Rise, up to Wandsworth Road , just look ing for a friend

Victoria smiles with those painted eyes, as she raps upon my door

Victoria smiles with those painted eyes, she can't take any more

Victoria smiles with those painted eyes, I watch the tears running down

Victoria smiles with those painted eyes, I could never let her down

You can really trust me, if you really need me, if you're looking for a friend (x3)


Charming (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne/Robert Steinhart/Falk Steffen)

Had a crazy dream one winter's night

Shadows on my walls through the crisp moonlight

A surburbean siren calling me back home

I told her to go away and leave me alone

Chorus: But she was charming, oh so charming, oh she was charming and she was hot

Charming, oh so charming, charming and she was hot.

The nightmares kept coming, they wouldn't go away

Closed my ears and eyes but heard what she said

Whispering and calling, "Baby please come home

"Come back to the suburbs, to my suburban home"

Chorus

I'd sooner be lonely, living on my own

Gets desesperate sometimes but it's better that way

I'd sooner be lonely, living in the dark

Than trapped in suburbia with those terrible sharks

You know she was charming, oh so charming, she got money and she was hot

Charming, oh so charming, she got money and she was hot hot hot (ad lib)

Don't need your money, I prefer living on my own , don't need your money, honey


Winter into Summer (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne/Robert Steinhart/Falk Steffen)

Winter into summer, feel the season's change

Winter was a bummer and should be rearrangered

Winter into summer, no more snow or rain

Winter into summer, daylight once again

Then you walk to the yellow sand

Let it drift right through your hand

Stare up at a wide blue sky

Sometimes you could nearly cry

Winter into summer, feel the season's change

Winter was a bummer and should be rearrangered

Winter into summer, hear the children sing

Winter into summer, such a joyous thing

Then you speed through a big blue sky

Pretending you could fly

Sunlight shadows on your hand

You feel like a reborn man

Winter into summer, feel the season's change

Summer, summer, feel the season's change

Winter was a bummer and should be rerrangered

Winter into summer, everything has changed

Then you walk to the yellow sand

Let it drift right through your hand

Stare up at a wide blue sky

Sometimes you could nearly cry

Then you speed through a big blue sky

Pretending you could fly

Sunlight shadows on your hand

You feel like a reborn man

Winter into summer, feel the seasons change

Winter was a bummer, should be rerangered

Winter into summer, no more snow or rain

Winter into summer, daylight once again

Then you walk to the yellow sand

Let it drift right through your hand

Stare up at a wide blue sky

Sometimes you think you could nearly cry

Summer's almost here (x2), winter's dead and gone (x4)


Love for Five Minutes (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne)

Last night, you slipped into my dreams and it felt so right

It ws such a lovely feeling in the middle of the night

And then I woke up screaming, nobody home

Don't you realize I hate to be alone

Why don't you call me one more time, one more time (x2)

Fall in love hey just for five minutes

Fall in love honey just for five minutes

Fall in love again just for five minutes

Fall in love with me hey just for five minutes

I know I'm a wild wild boy and I go crazy sometimes

My mother always told me I was out of life

But honey I need you like I never did before

Can't stand this feeling of no love no more, no

Why don't you call me one more time, one more time (x2)

Fall in love hey just for five minutes

Fall in love again just for five minutes

Fall in love hey just for five minutes (x2)

Come on, don't let me down, oh honey

Why don't you call me one more time, one more time (x2)

Fall in love hey just for five minutes

Fall in love again hey just for five minutes

Fall in love hey just for five minutes

Fall in love again hey just for five minutes more


Back Home Boogie (Hans Pukke/Kevin Coyne)

Reeperbahn on Saturday night, some blonde guy wants to start a fight

Standing in the pourring rain, will I ever see England again?

Chorus: G ot to find a way, got to find a way back home (x2) .

Nurenberg, Tuesday afternoon, sitting in a cafe, a cafe of doom

Nobody here wants to talk to me, must be I got a disease

Chorus

Lufthansa, care for me, give me a ticket for free (x2)

Chorus

Munich, Wenesday afternoon, railway station, sitting in a little room

Somebody's talking to me, leave me alone and let me be cause

Chorus (x2)
