Call me ugly, call me crazy, call me mad:
You don't know just what I might call you.
Tell me a story - tell it up!
Tell it up, tell up your name.
Tell it up, tell it up - tell up your name.

Number nine...
I wish, I wish I could remember.
I wish, that I may remember your name.
Oh the sweetening, all the motels.
The cheap nights, sweet rites,
Llovely moment.

(You know the cure,
For a broken heart?
You know the cure..)

If I come a little strong, tell me when I'm wrong.
Guide me, tell me what to do.
Come a little fast, please help this love to last,
Pity me and take me home with you.

Call Me

(Call me, make sure I'm home.)

I did not hear that call last night;
I didn't hear that call you made at me.

Everytime you go away, I think you've gone away to stay,
And I sit down,
And I commit myself to the deepest despair.
Everytime you move around, I think about moving
- Running away, making running repairs.

Cooltide

(So cool, what a cool time,
It's so cool, what a cool time.
That's what you're having, I'm having one too.)

It's a cool cool time - running up the river,
It's a cool cool time, for running down the stream.
It's a cool cool time, for cutting up the profits,
It's a cool cool time, for a cool cool dream.

(Between the drizzle and the drop)
(Between the drizzle and the drop...)

Come and put your faith in beauty;
Try to do love's duty,
Won't you help us - carry on.
Offer every honour, and just honour every offer,
Help us - carry on.
