Miscellaneous Lyrics - Divine Comedy - A Short Album about Love 8/Jan/2002

In Pursuit of Happiness

Hey, I'm not the type
To say one thing and do another
And if it's all right I'd kind
Of like to be your lover
'Cos when you're with me I can't help but be
So desperately
Uncontrollably
Happy!

And hey, I'm not the kind
To fall in love without good reason
And if that's a crime
Then baby I'm committing high treason
'Cos when you're with me
I'm absolutely
And totally
Quite uncontrollably
Happy!

And hey, I'm not so blind
That I can't see where we're all going
And it's no fault of mine
If humankind reaps what it is sowing
Just as long as we are together
Forever
I'll never be anything other than
Happy!

Hey, don't be suprised
If millions die in plague and murder
True happiness lies
Beyond your fries and happy burger

Everybody Knows (Except You)

Everybody knows that I love you
Everybody knows that I need you
Everybody knows that I do, except you

I told the stars above
About the one I love
I told the morning sun
Yeah I'm telling everyone
I told my mum and dad
They seemed to understand
And I'll get through to you
If it's the last thing that I do

Everybody knows that I love you
Everybody knows that I need you
Everybody knows that I do, except you

Everybody knows that I live for you
Everybody knows that I adore you
Everybody knows that it's true, except you

I told all of my friends
Again and again and again
I drove them round the bend
So now you're my only friend
I told the passers by
I made a small boy cry
And I'll get through to you
If it's the last thing that I do

'Cos everybody knows that I love you
Everybody knows that I need you
Everybody knows that I do, except you

I'm going crazy baby
What do I have to do?
You know I love you baby
Maybe you love me too
Everybody knows that I live for you
Everybody knows that I adore you
Everybody knows that it's true, except you
Except you, except you, except you
How come everybody knows, except you?

Oh everybody knows that I love you
And everybody knows that I need you
Everybody knows that I do, except you

Someone

Someone I once knew
Told someone like you
"Love is just a word"
Now I'm not so sure that's true

Someone made me see
How someone like me
Needn't be so closed
Just 'cos they once chose to be

I need to be someone's somebody

Someone heard my call
When I was all at sea
Someone rescued me
When my life was all but through

Someone made me feel
Like someone really cares
I hardly even dare
To believe it's real, it's really true

I need to be somebody's somebody

If...

If you were the road
I'd go all the way
If you were the night
I'd sleep in the day
If you were the day
I'd cry in the night
'Cause you are the way
The truth and the light
If you were a tree
I could put my arms around you
And you could not complain
If you were a tree
I could carve my name into your side
And you would not cry,
'Cos trees don't cry

If you were a man
I would still love you
If you were a drink
I'd drink my fill of you
If you were attacked
I would kill for you
If your name was Jack
I'd change mine to Jill for you
If you were a horse
I'd clean the crap out of your stable
And never once complain
If you were a horse
I could ride you through the fields at dawn
Through the day until the day was gone
I could sing about you in my songs
As we rode away into the setting sun

If you were my little girl
I would find it hard to let you go
If you were my sister
I would find it doubly so
If you were a dog
I'd feed you scraps from off the table
Though my wife complains
If you were my dog
I am sure you'd like it better
Then you'd be my loyal four legged friend
You'd never have to think again
And we could be together till the end

If I Were You (I'd Be Through With Me)

If I were you
I'd look at me
And fail to see
The things I see in you
If I were you
And if I were you
I wouldn't let
The shit you get
From me get the better of you
If I were you

Don't you ever wonder why
I could never make you cry?

Well, if I were you
I'd ride away
To a pasture new
Where I could graze
On the grass so succulent and sweet
If I were you
I'd be through with me

If I were you
I wouldn't need
To always read
The magazines that I do
Huh, they make me blue!
So if I were you
I'd make the break
Before I take
My frustrations out on you
Just break on through

Don't you ever, in your dreams
Take a lover and make her scream?

Well, if I were you
I'd ride away
To a pasture new
Where I could graze
On the grass so succulent and sweet
If I were you
I'd be through with me

Well, if I were you
I'd ride away
To a pasture new
Where I could graze
On the green, green grass
Of virgin country
I'd live real fast
And die real young
You see if I were you
I'd end my days
In a field of stupid sheep
Just grazing
The grass so succulent and sweet
If I were you
I'd be through with me

Timewatching

When I fall asleep
It could be forever
So I'll never fall asleep again
When I fall apart
Put me back together
And my life will be complete

Maybe it's tonight
Maybe tomorrow night
Next week
Next month
Next year
We've only time to fear

When I fall behind
In the quest for pleasure
I shall treasure this short time with you
We shall not be chained
We shall not be tethered
And we'll never be unkind

Maybe it's tonight
Maybe tomorrow night
Next week
Next month
Next year
We've only time to fear

If I fall in love
It will be forever
So I'll never fall in love
But the moment I can feel that
You feel that way too
Is when I might fall in love with you

I'm All You Need

Don't look a horse in the mouth
Don't let a frog get you down
Dragging you round like a dog on a lead
I'm all you need

Baby I'm in love with you
And my love could go on and on
Maybe you could love me too
And our love could go on and on

So don't look a horse in the mouth
Don't let a frog get you down
Dragging you round like a dog on a lead
I'm all you need

Baby I'm in love with you
And my love could go on and on
Maybe you could love me too
And our love could go on and on

But don't look a horse in the mouth
Don't let a frog get you down
Dragging you round like a dog on a lead
I'm all you need

Baby I'm in love with you
And my love could go on and on
Maybe you could love me too
And our love could go on and on and on and on...
