Lyrics - Send In The Clowns

Send in the clowns

Getting away
someones gone astray
and jon's trying hard to breathe
let me set the scene
he's walking to the sea
but summers getting hard to reach
It's five to three
she had him on his knees
feeling like a dirty man
only time will tell
he's feeling really well
sippin' from another can

Did he use his time up well?
how do holidays turn to hell?

Thank England from me
thank the tourist holiday
thank Spain and thank the girl
the one who's wearing my pearls
thank the dj and thank my moves
they got that woman in the mood
thank my headache and the frowns
i'm going home to all the clowns
i'm going home to all the clowns

He got home today
summer went astray
and jon's trying hard to think
let me set the scene
fuckin' can machine
and works tipped him over the brink
it's five to three
praying on his knees
it's like workin' in a prison camp
only time will tell
he's doing really well
sippin' from another can

Can he feel his memories dwell?
how do holidays ever go that well?

Thank England from me
thank the tourist holiday
thank spain and thank the girl
the one who's wearing my pearls
thank the dj and thank my moves
the ones that got her in the mood
thank my headache and the frowns
i'm going home to all the clowns
i'm going home to all the clowns.

Lyrics : I've Got A Meaning

I've got a meaning

Keep dreaming, Your hopes are weakening
A mascarade of what clowns are keeping
You'll never see me, I want to treat you
To sights and times that only deserve you

Steal dayly, you wanna take me?
My only hope is that god would save me
I got a feeling, your hopes keep dreaming
You had the way i could start to believe in

but listen, I've got a meaning
but listen, I've got a meaning

Hope sufferes, who needs lovers?
when everyone could kill one another
Please praise me, and I'll take you
Over the moon, drink some stardust maybe?

but listen, I've got a meaning
but listen, I've got a meaning

Could I think of a time that I felt devine
I think i've got a way I can steal your time
sink another glass come drink with me
I know I've got a key that will set you free

but listen, I've got a meaning
but listen, I've got a meaning
yeah listen, I've got a meaning
yeah listen, I've got a meaning

thewanted - new beginnings and old memories


Who would have thought it? the six of us, (admitted a change in the line up but the same desire and same ambition as we had from the day i made the calls. The day rob said 'i dunno, i'll have to have a think about it'). We were there beside the stage, F.E.A.R by Ian brown kicks in and that's it the very same feeling that I have before every gig, theres no turning back now, then the intro explodes into diesel power and thats that, the lads are on to a massive cheer from the hundreds in attendance. who are these people?, why are they here?, what have we done different? I'm stood there playing 'Disco Girl' and they're singing the song back at me, I mean fair do's to them all, every single one of them, but i'm thinking wait 'til you hear the new songs!
through the set I look around the sea of heads, it's hard to see things when your up there, but you can pick out a few friendly faces, people we have met along the way, the people who believe in what we are doing, the people who know we have done this the hard way, kept our heads down and got on with it.

We come off stage and it doesn't kick in 'til about 30 minutes after, 'fuck me' a look from dan and a smile, we know whats just happened, all of us do. 'Cd's went in around 2 minutes', 2 minutes! haha. Remember when we played at the cricketers to 8 people?, haha, 2 of them were rob's mum and Andy, thats 6, then Nat was there and even Birchy and Alison, thats 5 so with john and andy doing the sound there was 1 other person that came! we got on with it and played 2 40 minute sets. we were good, I don't normally say things like that, i'm not the confident one. They'd have used the cd's for beer mats there.

It's wierd this but theres always been the same feeling onstage since that night at the deepend. Different members have come and gone but it's still the same, simlar jokes and looks from each other. It's a shame Craig A doesn't come with us anymore, i mean fair enough to him, i think he was finding it difficult, really difficult. But I miss him around and I know the lads do too. Birchy came and went, was a shame he didn't fit in, I don't think he ever 'got it'.

Then theres the new faces, who would have thought that after attending the gig with 8 people there he would now manage us, John Moran. We have a lot of respect for john, I know a lot of people in Sheffield do, Cheers John. James came into the band last year, I dunno when, I asked dave that the other day and I don't think he really knew to be honest, it seems like he's always been there, has he been here since the beginning? it seems that way. Then theres Vito, I mean what the fuck does he do? I'll tell you what he does, he keeps us relaxed before a gig, he makes us smile when we might not have thought about smiling, he's a true friend in every aspect and when he's not around it's not the same. viva john vito!!!

peace. ben.
