Stereophonics

A Thousand Trees – Stereophonics

standing at the bus stop with my shopping in my hands and I’m over hearing older ladies as the rumours start to fly you can hear them in the school yard, scrap yard, chip shop,phone box in the pool hall at the shoe stall every corner turned around.

it started with the school girl who was running, running home to her mam and dad told them she was playing in the change room of the local football side they said tell us again so she told them again they said tell us the truth they found it hard to believe cause he taught our steve even trained me taught uncle john who’s a father of three

but it only takes one tree to make a thousand matches

only takes one match to burn a thousand trees

you see it in the class room in the swimming pool where the match stick men are made at the scouts hall at the football where the wise we trust are paid they all honour his name he did a lot for the game got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates but now they’re ripping it down stamping the ground pictures gather dust behind the bar in the lounge

it only takes one tree to make a thousand matches

only takes one match to burn a thousand trees

wake up smell the rain shake up he’s back to stay hasn’t been on a holiday growin seeds don’t believe why he’s been away

in the school yard change room playing fields bathroom phone box office blocks every corner turned around they keep doubting the flame tossing the blame got his name knocked up above the sports ground gates now they’re rippin it down stamping the ground picture gathers dust behind the bar in the lounge

it only takes one tree to make a thousand matches

only takes one match to burn a thousand trees

A Minute Longer – Stereophonics

they’re calling out come on lets go but i’m miles away to a year
before laughs from the glass drank to the past on the old green seat
like velvet to the hand
think i’d like to stay a minute longer
would you like to stay a minute longer?
last one for some sick from the rum i played golf on the carpet with
someone crash back to date few things i hate but i’d rather us live
in the present day

Same Size Feet – Stereophonics

A weeks too long, not to ring. Re-colours her hair, and waits for him. No cat against dog, just head over heels Sex twice a date, best time in years. Oh no, why hasn’t he phoned? She has to wait until he’s on his own Lying and denying so nobody knows. I’ll tell her this week is what he tells her to keep her on loan. He’ll buy her one day Sex drives, oral highs, cheating wives and spies. Cream cakes, coffee dates, throwing gifts, goodbye. Passed away for the day had a change of kind. Sex changes, to mundane for the average mind Oh no she just can’t say. Where he is and where he’s been. Look prim and straight. Like she’s always been. All that she saved for went missing again. She could be wrong She could be, she could be, she could be wrong She could be, she could be, she could be wrong It looks like, It looks like, It looks like the words got around. They found a body in the lake maybe it wasn’t really his name. Same colour, same weight, same size feet It’s the not knowing that kills you. Oh no the clocks stopped slow, every time you’re on your own. The hide from the spies. So nobody knows Scratch through the pages of the lazy days news for a clue. Still looking for you

Half The Lies You Tell Ain’t True – Stereophonics

you could lick or chew tongue in style tonight champagne drag queen
suit pinstripe outta line it’s time to try how blisters on your feet
blisters up your spine if i could choose from two i’d mime to be a
smile
but when you rely on a lie that?s true and no one believes in the
things you do ’cause half of the lies you tell ain’t true i’m gonna
find out i’m gonna find a piece of you
you could pick and lose diesel dreams for crime i should win and
choose colours undersize a naked fake that’s a face that fits for two
sex brings out the spies hanging from your feet hollywood star style
but when you rely on a lie that?s true and no one believes in the
things you do ’cause half of the lies you tell ain’t true i’m gonna
find out i’m gonna find a piece of you
