Lyrics to the unreleased demos

Songs written by James McColl for his new band.

Long Grass

D F D F G (~A) / Bb A C B / F E D
Take the radio and put some good move vibes
Set the for the controls for the countryside
Forget about the wars/world and your 9-5
Try and rediscover why weíre alive
Oh swim like a half dust
Iím lying on my back like a cat
On a sticky summer afternoon
Laying in the long grass with you [x4]
I can hear that sound of your heart beating fast
Letís pretend today is our last,
I remember this time and this place
Maybe some day I might have forgotten your face
Oh swim like a half dust
Iím lying on my back like a cat
On a sticky summer afternoon
Laying in the long grass with you [x4]
Take the radio and put some good move vibes [x4]
[Repeat chorus]
Take the radio and put some good move vibes [x4]

The Right Buttons

B G sG# / C# B / D
Some fella swaying in the wind,
Sun falling down on my horizon
Kiss me on the forehead
This change in me is so surprising
Feels like Iím born again,
You push all the right buttons in me
Feels like Iím born again,
Like the birds are singing at the top of my tree
Hear the sound of the motorway
Little children playing in the distance
Iím in a spiritual place
I donít have any resistance
Feels like Iím born again,
You push all the right buttons in me
Feels like Iím born again,
Like the birds are singing at the top of my tree
Feels like Iím born again,
You take me to that spiritual place
Feels like Iím born again,
[Guitar interlude]
Sunflowers swaying in the wind
Sun falling down on my horizon
Please take me by the hand
This change in me is so surprising
Feels like Iím born again,
You push all the right buttons in me
Feels like Iím born again,
Like the birds are singing at the top of my tree
Feels like Iím born again,
You take me to that spiritual place
Feels like Iím born again,
[Repeat]

Waiting For The Weekend

A C D E / G C D / C D G E
Iíve got those Tuesday blues
Feels like someone put toffee in my shoes
Let myself get a little depressed
Iíve got to come to terms with my laziness
And if Iím down itís only Wednesday I know
Thereís a couple thousand seconds more to go
I wish I could enjoy my days
Sitting with my lunchbox catching some rays
Iím waiting for the weekend to come around [x2]
Iím waiting for you [x2]
Thursday, please be obedient
Take it easy on me Ďcause Iím a little spent
Fat buildings and skyscrapers
Thereís a time and place for waiting for us
Iím waiting for the weekend to come around [x2]
Iím waiting for you [x2]
Friday I love you so much
Youíve been away all week, now youíre back in touch
And every minute Iíve spent with you
Makes a week worthwhile
Do you feel the same too?
Iím waiting for the weekend to come around [x2]
Iím waiting for you [x4]
[Outro]

I Can't Get Enough of Your Love

D B C / E G / G# C# E
You make my heart turn to jelly
You put a warm feeling inside my belly
Youíve got my buttons at your fingertips
So wonít you put your lips at the muscle of my hips
ĎCause I canít get enough of your love
I canít get enough of your love
Youíve got to understand what youíre doing to me man
I come every time that you tell me that youíre mine
You turn my words into mumbles
My thoughts are feeling so jumbled
You pull all my levers, make me a believer
We got this far, youíre superstar
ĎCause I canít get enough of your love
I canít get enough of your love
Youíve got to understand what youíre doing to me man
I come every time that you tell me that youíre mine
(What youíre doing to me man)
I canít help feeling so dizzy,
When you and your tongue get busy
Yeah, you push all my buttons with your fingertips
So wonít you put your lips at the muscle of my hips
ĎCause I canít get enough of your love
I canít get enough of your love
Youíve got to understand what youíre doing to me man
I come every time when you tell me that youíre mine

Sunshine St.

D# F# C# D# G G# / C# B A E
Day-glo clothes in the pavement cracks
Itís like knocking back Prozac
Purple cars and disco tracks talking to me
Though you may be missing someone
All youíre violent much has gone,
Come with me and open up some cans of fun
Oh, Sunshine Street always makes me feel so sweet
When I go back there
When Iíve got problems in my hair
Thereís a place where no one cares
Turns my cycles into spares
Names whoís names have disappeared
Friends I havenít seen for years,
Library books Iíve never returned
Stand-ups, kisses and Chinese burns
Think I might be missing something
Classroom bells will always ring
When lifeís got no proper swing itís nothing
Oh, Sunshine Street always makes me feel so sweet
When I go back there
Oh, Sunshine Street always makes me feel so sweet
When I go back there
When Iíve got problems in my hair
Thereís a place where no one cares
Turns my cycles into spares
Oh, Sunshine Street always makes me feel so sweet
When I go back there
[Repeat x3]

You'll Come Round To My Way of Thinking

D C B F# / A E / A C# D
I hate her more than I love you, and that is quite a feat
But come a month or maybe two, sheíll be obsolete
And you will zig and you will zag back to me
So donít say never never never,
If you donít mean never ever ever
So donít say never never never to me
Youíll come round to my way of thinking [x2]
Someday [x3]
I could throw these toys out my pram, but I would be a fool
With all this time on my hands, Iíll just play it cool
And you will change your mind like you change your socks
So donít say never never never,
If you donít mean never ever ever
So donít say never never never to me
Youíll come round to my way of thinking [x2]
Someday [x3]
So donít say never never never,
If you donít mean never ever ever
So donít say never never never to me
Youíll come round to my way of thinking [x2]
Someday [x3]

Sister Mary Jo (Acoustic version)

F# B / E A? F# / C# B F#
We were helping OAPs with their wheelchairs in the snow
When she turned around to me and said that she had to go
Walked into William Hillís, she was gone for 50 minutes
I was stranded with my shovel,
Yes she really dropped me in it.
Oh, oh.
Sister Mary Jo, itís time to let the whole world know
That youíre actually a bloke and you like to drink and smoke
Oh sister Mary Jo are you a gangster on the run?
And if I slipped into your bed will you tell the other nuns?
She likes helping the young nuns get undressed for baths
With a brush and a sponge tickles their backs and makes them laugh
Oh, oh
Sister Mary Jo had such a handsome Roman nose,
Six foot four and stocking soles, and she took us to the Megabowl
Oh sister Mary Jo are you a gangster on the run?
And if I sneaked into your bed will you tell the other nuns?
[Vocal fill]
She said I will make you oysters in the back room at the cloisters
Have you played the sausage game, God forgives you all your shame
Oh, oh
Sister Mary Jo, itís time to let the whole world know
That youíre actually a bloke and you like to drink and smoke
Oh sister Mary Jo are you a gangster on the run?
And if I sneak into your bed will you tell the other nuns?
[Outro] [Repeat 2nd chorus]

Please Don't Call Me At Home

F D A - Bb G C -
Iím in so much debt Iím gonna phone up the world bank
And Iím sick and tired of listening to that ancient water tank
I've had the same bedroom since I was 2 or 3
And the fact that Iím still with my parents is humiliating me
Ok I admit there was a time when they were totally cool
In the day when people all had perms
And wore shell suits into school
Please donít call me at home
Please donít call me at home
Cos my mum and dad are living in the 60s [Repeat]
Iíve tried more degrees that that band from the 70s
And I just go from one course onto another
No I donít want a weekend in a caravan in Fife
Iíd rather pull out my fingernails
Or even take my life
I donít want to call them by their first names and feel like a fool
Theyíll be a time of mutual respect when I make up all the rules
Please donít call me at home
Please donít call me at home
Cos my mum & dad are living in the 60s [Repeat] [Keyboard Solo]
Please donít call me at home
(Please donít)
Please donít call me at home
(Please donít)
Cos my mum and dad are living in the 60s [x4]

I Still Love You Even Though You're Not Jesus

You rattled that tin up and down the High Street
And you spent it all on porn
You ate pineapples for a week
'Cause you said you's soon be gone
When I found your Swiss bank account I knew,
I knew you were a fraud
And I kicked myself for confusing you,
Confusing you with God
Oh I still love you even though you're not Jesus,
Oh I still love you even though you're not Jesus
The light will never penetrate the darkness of your heart,
The light will never penetrate the darkness of your heart
You climbed a hill in the Lake District
'Cause you said you were going to ascend
But all that we got was the cold
And I knew it was the end
My mum and dad they kidnapped me
And saved me from your grasp
Then I realised that the search for the light
Was one big pain in the ass
Oh I still love you even though you're not Jesus,
Oh I still love you even though you're not Jesus
The light will never penetrate the darkness of your heart
The light will never penetrate the darkness of your heart

Sunday Morning

D Dmaj7 / Bm A C
Sunday Morning makes me feel like thereís a
Blank space to fill
Who knows where Iíve been and
Who's this with me? Whats your name Iím sorry
I canít recall a single thing about you
Do do do do la do do [x2]
Sunday Morning sunbeam streaming through your
Window, reminds me
Of a song I once knew
I heard you singing that song in your shower
I hear you resist me a magic hour
Do do do do la do do [x2]
Do la do [x2]
Do do do do la do do
Although weíve had the time of our life
I wish that you were mine
Iíd better get home before half past 6
Before I get my backside kicked
Do do do do la do do [x2]
Ahhh [x3]
Sunday Morning makes me feel like thereís a
Blank space to fill
Who knows where Iíve been and
Whos this with me? Whats your name Iím sorry
I canít recall a single thing about you
Do do do do la do do [x2]
Do la do [x2]
Iíve gotta suspicion Iíve fallen in love

Cheap Flowers

There goes my baby, someone who looks a lot like me
There goes my baby, someone who dresses just like me
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
That he sent to me
There goes my baby, someone whoís twice as dumb as me
There goes my baby, someone whoís gonna get diseased
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
That he sent to me
Every single day that you walk by
Just wait a minute donít ask me why
You never told me that we were through
Iíve got no time for creeps like you
There goes my baby, someone who looks a lot like me
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
That he sent to me
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
Iím gonna send him (Cheap flowers from a Garage)
That he sent to me
