Tanita Tikaram Over You All Lyrics

Last updated:

Well [Lou is] alright hanging out in the wind
He really just wanted to fly
And I'm alright doing the same again
You all understand I was shy
And all the palm-readers have my natural resistance
That was a bonus for you
If I told you I loved you, yeh you know I was lying
I was just trying one over you

And all the paper elephants in the paper in the school
They always used to make me laugh
Now teacher said "you're learning" but I knew I was inside burning
But these weren't tears for the craft
And if you want to pretend you can help me any better
You just got to let me fall
Cos somewhere in a corner I know its alright
I'm going to get over you all

(Chorus)
And I'm over you all
Well God knows that's one to the competition
Over you all
Well God knows our lives take strange positions

Well the angriest attitude don't fly so hot
You play by the water and drink such a lot
But I knew the reason to hang down my head
It's better, I think, I just lie on the bed
And sometimes it hurts but the hurting's not good
It just makes you feel like a fool
So somewhere along I can go [doing a throng]
Any say I can do without you

(chorus)

Somewhere inside
A laughter in here has died
Won't you come out to play, I know you played before boy
I know you played before

Well I'm tingling to your talking 'till I'm mud in your hands
You know [I] have no power so the statement's kind of grand
You say "I can save the world, yes I can solve your mind"
Baby don't you tell me [?] blind in my mind's eye

(chorus)
