Pay For It
Lloyd Cole Lyrics


Strange to see you, babe
Ain't nothing down here free
Did you lose your ticket?
Hope you weren't looking for me
Now I'm still wearing the scars I got from being your fool
You messed me up pretty good, babe
I didn't mean to rule you
Remember when I first saw you, babe
You were looking pretty good
Said you were looking for love
Well then why didn't you?
You just sat there taking everything you could get
Never thought one day you might have to pay for it
Well did you ever dream, baby, one day you might fall
And feel your back against the wall?
Well did you ever dream, baby, one day you might crawl?
Did you ever dream?
Now when you're putting on your face
I guess that you feel kinda low
Knowing that you passed your best, and you got nothing to show
Well, baby, you know just as well as I
Some fool is gonna fall your way
Only this time around you might have to pay for it
Well did you ever dream, baby, one day you might fall
And feel your back against the wall?
Well did you ever dream, baby, one day you might crawl?
That's what I said
Did you ever dream, baby
When you had no need, baby?
Did you ever dream
That you might have to pay for it?
I do believe that you might have to pay now
Well did you ever dream, baby, one day you might fall
Yeah, and feel your back against the wall?
Well did you ever dream, baby, one day you might crawl?
Strange to see you baby
Mmm strange, very strange
'Cause you messed me up good
Yes, you messed me up
Messed me up pretty good now didn't you, baby?
Mmm, took me a long time to get back here
But I swear I didn't mean to rule you
Yeah, I swear I didn't mean to rule you
How do you mend what you didn't mean to do?
'Cause I swear I didn't mean it
I swear I didn't mean it
And I swear I didn't
Swear I didn't mean to
Swear I didn't mean to rule you
I swear, but you messed me up
You know that you messed me up good, do you now
You messed me up good; yes, you did
Yes you did now, now, baby
'Cause I'm looking at you now
And you're paying now, yes; you are now
I swear, and you never dreamed that
And you never dreamed that
No, you never dreamed that
But you're paying now
Mmm, you never dreamed that
Mmm, I'm looking right at you now
And you're paying now; yes, you are

El músico británico Lloyd Cole inicia esta semana una nueva gira acústica por España. En sus actuaciones harán un repaso a toda su carrera, desde las canciones con su grupo The Commotions hasta su carrera norteamericana en solitario. Tras participar el sábado en el festival BAM de Barcelona, el cantautor de Glasgow hará una gira por salas que comenzará el domingo en la valenciana Loco Club, continuará el miércoles 28 en Madrid (Teatro Barceló) y el jueves 29 en Vigo (A Fundación) y finalizará el viernes 30 en Santander (Escenario Santander). Aprovecha estas actuaciones para promocionar el próximo lanzamiento de una caja que abarcará sus cuatro primeros discos en solitario, el quinto "perdido", rarezas y vídeos, tal como ya hizo con otra colección que también supervisó él mismo el año pasado con todo el material existente con sus The Commotions junto a cortes inéditos y producción audiovisual, además de archivo gráfico.
Lloyd Cole se ha convertido en un compositor clave del pop-rock de los años 80, tiempos en los que coincidió con aquella oleada de excelente música a cargo de bandas como The Smiths, Prefab Sprout Aztec Camera. Su primer álbum en solitario lo editó tras su traslado a Estados Unidos, de título homónimo; luego llegarían "Don't get weird on me, baby" (1991), "Bad vibes" (1993) y "Love story" (1995). Posteriormente reunió a un nuevo grupo The Negatives con un carácter más acústico e intimista, que ha dejado media docena de discos. Su última obra más destcada es "Standars".
Música independiente novedades.

Lloyd, that riff after the chorus sounds uncannily similar to the Sutherland Brother's and Quiver's ''Arms of Mary,'' Man up mate, and share your p.r.s. with them. Of course you personally read and take advice from every comment on you tube to feed your megalomania. Morrissey liked you, because you didn't have holy socks. Sorry, ''just love it''
