Lloyd Cole Lyrics

When you're nothing to no one
And you're less than you can
And you're looking for someone
Who won't cling to anything
So you're stuck in some motel
With the sound of her sleeping
Don't you feel kinda old now
Well ain't that a funny thing
I used to wake up early
I used to try to believe
But life seems neverending
When you're young
So you're back on the highway
And there's wind in her hair
And you know that it's no time for thinking
About somebody up there
'Cause you'll turn her to drinking
And you'll lead her to hell
With her bottle beside her
She surely looks like an angel
I used to wake up early
I used to try to believe
But faith is never easy
When you're young
No no no
I used to wake up early
Now it's hard, hard enough to sleep
But life seems neverending
When you're young
Oh no no no no

Quine's playing is the coolest.


Just wonderful. Messrs Cole, Quine, Sweet etc at their peak. Well, one of them anyway.

Music City Mike

Quine's intro belongs in the Opening Riffs Hall of Fame. Brilliant.


LC surely must be one of the top 10 songwriters in Pop/Rock history. He's a true musical and lyrical genius and I really hope that he can continue to spread his work until the day he dies ... Excellent band here, too. However, I liked the Commotions even better.

+MrCoopersonic You are right, he is a very talented musician and the band he has put together here is world class.
