The Wildhearts - Sleepaway Lyrics


But the heart’s still buried from
When I was yours, when I was yours
But the voice still carries through
When I was yours, when I was yours
Through the hills and valleys sing
When I was yours, when I was yours
Sing «erase this memory of when I was yours»

I’ve got a punctured soul from too much ‘give a shit’
Can you die from this?
I guess we’re going to find out
It ain’t stopped me moving forwards
Using raw confusion, hey!
Can I get a witness? Can you hear this?
Could anybody even care less?
A hidden picture’s setting it off
Thought I’d deleted them all
I wasn’t thorough enough

Guts still churning, eyes still burning
I’m still working it out

But the heart’s still buried from
When I was yours, when I was yours
But the voice still carries through
When I was yours, when I was yours
Through the hills and valleys sing
When I was yours, when I was yours
Sing «erase this memory of when I was yours»
When I was yours

Got to get a move on — step by step
Ditch the all night do wrong — step by step
Feeling copacetic — step by step
Seemingly athletic — step by step
Take in the scenery — hup 2 3
And fuck the negativity — hup 2 3
Gleaming like a pistol — hup 2 3
And shining like a chainsaw — hup 2 3 4

Ain’t gonna pay for that anymore
For the beast to stay up all night
I don’t understand what they’re calling for
Hey mama yer boy is straight up alright
Mama yer boy is straight up alright

I been thinking I’m not good enough
Well, I’m good enough for me-oh
About time I gave me all that love
I been spending on the moon and stars
I came close enough but no cigar
I’m gonna take that chain from round my neck
I’m gonna throw it in the river
I’ve been asleep too long and now I’m home
I’m gonna soak that sun into my bones
There’s a difference ‘tween being lonely and being on your own

I need a real love — I said a real love
I need a real love — I said a real love
Something I identify as worthy of my attention — I need a real love
Worthy of my affection — I need a real love
I don’t want no dissension — I need a real love
Something I identify as mine all mine
All my time rewarded and I’ve avoided
How to take the easy way out

But the heart’s still buried from
When I was yours, when I was yours
But the voice still carries through
When I was yours, when I was yours
Through the hills and valleys sing
When I was yours, when I was yours
Sing «erase this memory of when I was yours»

Is just a sleep away
Is just a sleep away
Is just a sleep away
Is just a sleep away

The warming affection
Is just a sleep away
The morning erection
Is just a sleep away
Giving up fighting
Is just a sleep away
Let a little light in
Is just a sleep away
