Radio’s My Lover(Fifi) I know sometimes when I get lost in a crowd I can hear your laugh And it’s ringing out loud My bed is empty I cant sleep to escape Radio’s my love till the morning breaks Another Sunday after a nothing week Buy the papers but just fall asleep In a dream we walked on a pink blanket hill Hand in hand we faced the morning chill Fi you stole my heart Fifi right from the start- I knew It’s your smile I miss The silly things you do It’s everything about you Fi you stole my heart Fifi right from the start- I knew

Pain in my head Something new I need something true Ive gotta a pain in my head from you It’s a lie it’s a lie it’s a lie I know It’s so fake its so fake its so fake I know Its so broke its so broke its so broke I know No more us No more us No more us oh sh*t This is hard This is hard This is hard aint it It takes time It takes time It takes time to forget No regrets No regrets No regrets we’ve had fun Gotta go Gotta go gotta be someone Something new I need something true Ive gotta a pain in my head from you Its so gone Its so gone Its so gone I know Gotta be strong gotta be strong gotta be strong I know No regrets No regrets No regrets we’ve had fun Gotta go Gotta go gotta be someone Something new I need something true Ive gotta a pain in my head from you Did I really need you

Tell it like it is The pain as they breath everyday But they want it more More than you It hurts them so much What can they do? They want the truth more than you As lovers walk and losers we talk You’re in the pit of their stomachs and you kill the soul the soul of Islam but you cant kill the spirit of everyman and we don’t believe you and you don’t care life’s not that much to you when you’re full of hot air you see we know you cant sleep at night ye- you sleep in the daylight there’s not much more for you to do here so tell it like it is now you gotta look at it from the other side

Under your spell Don’t you think ive changed Don’t you think for the better Don’t you think lifes great And don’t you think its getting better You’ve got me under your spell You’ve saved me I lived to tell I’m rolling into bliss Im running so fast I can win You’ve got me under your spell You’ve saved me I lived to tell Don’t you think ive changed Don’t you think for the better You’ve got me under your spell You’ve saved me I lived to tell Don’t you think lifes great And don’t you think its getting better
5.
Laughed & Cried And I can feel everything now I’m shaking with need You lift me up when I was going for the fall I ‘d rather be on my knees And how can we say It’s better this way You laughed with me and you cried for me My feet have worn out church avenue My love is fast asleep Got in a rut and lost you I’m sorry I never faced your needs Your picture sends a smile to my face But I need your kiss to satisfy me You laughed with me and you cried for me
6.
Step right up From today you’re gonna get your sh*t together From today you gonna pull it all back together Today you’re gonna rise and be a real man Today you’re gonna live in the real world Then step right up And take a bow boy Feel the light Enjoy the warmth boy Then step right up And take a bow boy Feel the light Enjoy the applause boy And then you’ve made it And then you’ve made it And it will never be the same It will never be the same

Grace of god Get out of your room Step out of the gloom Seek comfort in the shelter- that’s me Don’t put up a front to receive is to confront Take shelter in me And may the grace of god be with you And let these white golden days Let them come your way Take pleasure in all the thoughts and words you say If you could only believe that all your dreams will come true And may the grace of god be with you Be with me too Get out of your room Step out of the gloom Seek comfort in the shelter- that’s me Don’t put up a front to receive is to confront Take shelter in me And may the grace of god be with you Be with me too Be with me too Be with me too Be with me too
8.
Keep me above Im out in the cold Another Christmas slumber I’m warm to the bone But I need to do better Im walking alone smiling at everyone Hey im not a fool but sometimes I wanna be and I can see some people taking this for grantyed the beauty here staring at them I can feel my mind Slipping with them Someone come pull me out And keep me above I must walk with a style Must see everything As worthwhile From here to the end From here to the end Gotta sing with the birds The ones of the feathered kin Gonna laugh loud again hey I’m laughing again and I can see some people taking this for grantyed the beauty here staring at them I can feel my mind Slipping with them Someone come pull me out And keep me above I’m gonna live I’m gonna live
