With Sympathy Lyrics

Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Effigy (I'm Not An) (3:51)
you are the only person i know
but i take you round to people who are on the go
well you took me to a picture show
and what's the first thing i see
but them burning pictures of my head to toe, hey!

i'm not an effigy, no, no!

i asked you if you would be mad
if i packed my things and moved away to faraway land
well i packed my things and i moved to this place
and what's the first thing i see
but them burning pictures of me in my face, hey!

i'm not an effigy, no, no!

well i moved back from this faraway land
walked right into a room with me mum and me dad
well i saw my picture hanging on the wall
they tried to rip it and burn it
but it just withstood it all and i said hey!

i'm not an effigy

i'm not angry
i'm not an effigy... hey!

well walking around this stinking town
i look up at the buildings and they get me down
well i look to my left and then i look to my right
and then i realize they've been striking at me
since the middle of last night, hey!

i'm not an effigy
2. Revenge (3:48)
pushed me off the dirty floor
you watched as my head hit the floor
you watched as i rolled round and round
you watched as i came tumbling down
you watched as i rolled down the stairs
you never wished me - fare thee well!
you watched as i got on my feet
i ran towards her and she started to plead, no!

ain't got time for what you feel

you did it again
you did it again
you did it again and again and again, ho, ho!

far below original sin
far below the state i'm in
far below malicious crimes
far below her for the time
far below
far below
far below is the place you'll go, ho!

ain't got time for what you feel

you did it again
you did it again
you did it again and again and again, ho, ho!

oh went through the window, quiet as a mouse
no sound was stirring throughout the house
i'd heard a noise that made me startle
but i kept on walking down the corridor
yes the corridor
yes the corridor
and there you were with a man once more, no!

ain't got time for what you feel

you did it again
you did it again
you did it again and again and again
you did it again
you did it again
you did it again and again and again, ho, ho!
3. I Wanted to Tell Her (5:29)
i wanted to tell her but i stuck to my lies
i wanted to tell her till i looked in her eyes
i wanted to tell her but i stuck to my lies
i wanted to tell her till i looked in her eyes
i wanted to tell her
i needed to tell her

just like the wind you blew away your happy lover's touch
you bring the blues into my heart just like a rush
i cannot bear the way my heart has helped to keep you close
of you my babe i cannot get enough
you touch me baby

i loved you to the lines of lies you told when i asked her name
i knew the perfume in your hair just wasn't mine
did you ever think to notice me when you wasn't home?
i noticed every time

i wanted to tell her but i stuck to my lies
i wanted to tell her till i looked in her eyes
i wanted to tell her but i stuck to my lies
i wanted to tell her till i looked in her eyes

thought you noticed every time but you didn't notice a thing
i'd have to cover up my calls when the telephone would ring
i'm tired of you and the things you do and all the things you say
no more babysitting for neurotic girls today

i'm thinking that the pain i'm going through just to keep you babe
is something that i should bear
did you ever stop to notice me when you had nothing?
and i never cared?

just like the wind you blew away your happy lover's touch
you bring the blues into my life just like a rush
i cannot bear the way my heart has helped to keep you close
of you my babe i cannot get enough
you touch me baby, don't be mean to me!

i wanted to tell her but i stuck to my lies
i wanted to tell her till i looked in her eyes
i wanted to tell her but i stuck to my lies
i wanted to tell her till i looked in her eyes
i wanted to tell her but i stuck to my lies
i wanted to tell her till i looked in her eyes
i wanted to tell her
i needed to tell her
4. Work For Love (4:44)
hey!

you said you needed full time help
cos you're all alone
i said i'd work for nothing at all
if i just could take you home

and now you're taking applications
for your love
you wanted certain specifications
i circled the one that said all the above

work... for love

finally got my resume
and you said you'd reviewed it some other day
i said, 'girl, hey, do it if you dare
where i'd like to go our love will flare'

finally my letter arrived
and i knew you would be mine
instead i had to prove my turf
for the first two weeks work overtime

work... for love

you've got to work

you've got to work for love (had enough, had enough?)
5. Here We Go (3:21)
this one's fought the trendy set
this one's fought the feds
this one's fought the people baby
and tried to ruin my plans

this one's fought the radio
this one's fought the press
this one's fought the people baby
and made my life such a mess

woah... here we go (we gotta go, we gottta go)

this one's fought the little girls
this one's fought the boys
this one's fought the people baby
and told me all their lies

woah... here we go (we gotta go, we gottta go)

i will press the button
and they will go away
but don't forget to say your prayers
before i blow them all away, i say

woah... here we go (we gotta go, we gottta go)

woah... here we go (we gotta go!)
6. What He Say (4:04)
i've seen many countries
argue about human lives
but one thing that stays the same is
the clubs are always full at night

pick out any far-out place
like kenya or swaziland
doesn't matter what the place
they'll still be dancing to the band

(mumble mumble jumble)
(garble warble farble)
(mumble mumble jumble)
(garble warble farble)
(mumble mumble jumble) what he say?
(garble warble farble)
(mumble mumble jumble) what he say?
(garble warble farble) let's dance!

say you've found a homeland? (move to it, move to it)
say you've found a clubland? (get to it, get to it)
now you've got a song? (groove to it, groove to it)
got to find a partner (just get to it, get to it)

(mumble mumble jumble)
(garble warble farble)
(mumble mumble jumble)
(garble warble farble)
(mumble mumble jumble) what he say?
(garble warble farble)
(mumble mumble jumble) what he say?
(garble warble farble) let's dance!

let's dance!

i've seen many a race of people
argue many things before
but there is one language that
gets you understood for sure

not a language of the mouth
it's only for the feet
grab a russian by the hands
and he will feel the need
that's right!

(mumble mumble jumble)
(garble warble farble)
(mumble mumble jumble)
(garble warble farble)
(mumble mumble jumble) what he say?
(garble warble farble)
(mumble mumble jumble) what he say?
(garble warble farble) let's dance!

let's dance!
7. Say You're Sorry (4:18)
haven't you ever felt this way before?
(with a perfect stranger?)
the look on her face, it just gives her away, she can't take
any more
hoist up your white flag, call for a truce
try separation, we both stand to lose
she looks in your eyes as we say our goodbyes and she says

say you're sorry
say you're sorry (tell me, tell me)
say you're sorry (right from the heart)
say you're sorry
say you're sorry

think of the times when we couldn't wait to get home
(from the arms of danger)
funniest part was the danger was right in our being home
you hoist up your white flag, you seem so amused
living in riddles without giving clues
looks in your eyes as you say your goodbytes and she says

say you're sorry
say you're sorry (tell me, tell me)
say you're sorry (right from the heart)
say you're sorry
say you're sorry

we've had our problems and we've had our fights
i was the wrong one and you were the right
no more fighting, it ends tonight
it's your turn to say you're sorry

say you're sorry
say you're sorry (say you're sorry)
8. Should Have Known Better (4:31)
so many years i just suffered through the tears
knowing one day i'd wake up wishing i had never met her
but as the time goes by my hope keeping playing every day
as i laugh to myself, 'i just should have known better'

there's no more laughter as i think about the other girl
it's a slap in my face as i'm opening her letter
she's doing fine now with two kids and another man
as i cry out loud, 'i just should have known better'

she was the reason i was living every day
i would ride upon a white horse in my quest to try and find
her
but now it's too late, i don't care if i die tonight
cos a voice keeps ringing in my heart, 'i should have known
better'

i learned my lesson this time
lonliness and a broken heart
should've known right from the start
9. She's Got A Cause (3:33)
she was all alone
she looked round and around
forever searching
incessant drudgery
but she had that someone wrapped up in a box
sticking pins and needles through the tiny cracks

she had someone she owned
and it's hard to confess
i was that someone
and she could care less

she's got (she's got)
a cause (she thinks she has)
a cause

okay...

least i have my address
in her stranglehold
lived my life around her
and i lived my life as i was told
had me coming and going and coming and going like a toy
turned me from a man into a sniveling little boy

she's got (she's got)
a cause (she thinks she has)
