So You'd Like To Save The World
Lloyd Cole Lyrics

So you'd like to save the world
I suggest you take one person at a time
And start with me
Not an ordinary girl
Not someone that I should rear upon
And ask hey what you sign baby
Have you been reading my mind
Nothing more or less to rest will
Could I keep you in mind
Did you really cry
Then you saw the hole in the sky
Did you really hold your head
And hide your eyes
That's alright
You might call it ultraviolet radiation
It's only sunlight
So you'd like to save my world
If you could free my inner child
And I could free your inambition baby
Or would you like to mother me
I love the way you wear that motorola generation cheek mama
So you'd like to save the world
I'd really like to help you
I'd really like to be you for a while
Is that alright
And I could call it ultraviolet radiation
It's only sunlight
Don't you know
It's only sunlight
It's only sunlight
But you might call it ultraviolet radiation

What a voice! Lloyd Cole is an amazing story teller! I can hardly wait till Sept. 2010...the release of Lloyd Cole's new album,(CD for you youngsters.)

David Pascoe

I started watching this at 7:58am today!

Gareth Edwards

An absolutely amazing song from one of my favourite Lloyd Cole albums. Not sure I'd want to hear it for the first time at 7.59 though...

Noel Riddell

My favorite track from 'Love Story'. Lloyd + Neil = brilliance


good stuff: thanks for posting.

Ed Yid

My favourite album. I know all the lyrics,as i used them to get my (then) baby daughter to sleep!!! Genius!!!!




I love this song, this album, this artist.... and feel such sympathy for the kids having to learn about how much love sucks before they've even had their big breakfast... (and even more sympathy for Mr. Cole having to play on morning telly).


Live acoustic performance from 1995 of  "'Like Lovers Do" by Lloyd Cole
