NW5
Madness Lyrics


Oh, I watched you grow up
Only to despise
I seen the madness stack up
Through tarpaulin eyes

I have heard you come up
Believing your own lies
Witnessed the blessing rise up
In a very strange disguise
And though you have become a burden
One thing remains, that's for certain
I will love you all my life
But without you in my life

Yes I watched you climb up
I seen you come alive
From those very humble beginnings
In NW5

And though we face the final curtain
One thing remains, that's for certain
I will love you all my life
But without you in my life

I would give you everything
For just that smile you bring
For just that song to sing
I would give you everything
For just that smile you bring
For just that song to sing, I sing now

Oh I watched you grow up
Only to despise
Witnessed the blessing rise up
In a very strange disguise

Nothing, it seems, lasts forever
People change just like the weather
Some for good and sometimes never
I hope things work out for the better

'Cause I would give you everything
For just that smile you bring
For just that song to sing

I would give you everything
For just that smile you bring
For just that song to sing

I would give you everything
For just that smile you bring
For just that song to sing
I would give you everything
For just that smile you bring
For just that song to sing

I would give you everything
For just the smile you bring
Just to hear that song to sing

Ah, nice song, though surprisingly only used in a montage of the movie "Neues vom Wixxer" (translated...erm..."New stuff from the Jerker"). For those, who are wondering: It's a german comedy of old police movies set in England. The man in the mask is the "Jerker", a criminal killing other criminals in Part 1, and seven people, he announced beforehand in the second (including the first Jerker from part 1 - he became a legacy-character). The tall detective with the melon is "Inspector Very Long", the slightly...bigger one is "Chief Inspector Even Longer" (and yes, nearly everyone has such a punny, english-sounding name, often even sexual).
It's a very good comedy, playing with their status as an old timey-story (several areas around London are apparently still Black/White by choice) and their setting in England, even though it's clearly a german film (Longer looking down to the ground, reading trap door and trying to remember, what's the translation). It certainly is a bit silly at times, but it is an intelligent way of silly.
So...why Madness for this German Movie? Oliver Kalkofe (producer and actor for Even Longer) is a great fan of Madness, using a cover of one of their songs for Part 1. As a result, Madness expressed their interest in singing for Part 2 themselves.

It wasnt just used for the movie, nw5 was actually a song in the musical, though it was very different in the musical.

It seeks its precioussss and hates Bagginses, chipssss and Madnesss. Nine of the other dislikes are ringwraiths, with the other two being Sauruman and Sauron.
