about

White Town Derby, UK

The "band" White Town consists of Jyoti Mishra, who writes and records the music almost entirely on his own, with occasional help from other musicians. Although best known for the fluke 1997 hit "Your Woman," White Town's mix of musical, political, and social influences makes Mishra one of the more intriguing, although frustratingly inconsistent, musicians in '90s indie pop. - Stewart Mason, AMG ... more

Track Name: Cut Out My Heart
Cut Out My Heart
Cut out my heart
And throw that shit away
I’m not gonna use it
Any more
After today

You’re singing blue songs
For someone new
You’re singing blue songs
But you’re not blue

Will you
Take my hand?
Take my hand?
Do you think we could make it?
Could we possibly make it?

Take my hand
Take my hand
Do you think we could make it?
Could we possibly make it
Through?
Track Name: She's A Lot Like You
She’s A Lot Like You
Let me tell you ‘bout a girl I know
She’s so wonderful
Everything she says and does
She’s never ordinary or dull
I would spend a lifetime with her
If I had a lifetime to spend
As it is, I’m glad just to know her
And I’ll always be her friend

Let me take your hand
I’ll hook you up
You two should meet
Let me take your hand
I’ll hook you up
So you can see
She’s a lot like you

And every time I see her perfect face
I’m deeper in the spell
I’m in love with every molecule
I’m in love with every cell
I just want to hug and hold her
Cos it’s always so much fun
I just want to talk for hours
Till we see the morning sun

And though I know
You won’t believe me
When I tell you
How great she is
If you could only meet her
You’d see it’s the truth

Let me tell you ‘bout a girl I know
She’s so wonderful
Everything she says and does
She’s never ordinary or dull

Let me take your hand
I’ll hook you up
You two should meet
Let me take your hand
I’ll hook you up
So you can see
She’s a lot like you
Track Name: Till I Die
Till I Die
Where we are
Who would have thought we’d end up
Here, my love?
From where we started
All those years ago
A crazy boy and a silent girl
A spooky girl

You know I can’t believe
We used to feel that way
You know I can’t believe
You used to smile that way
You smiled that way

And every day
I think of everything I
Did and said
It all goes tumbling though my
Stupid head
I need a time machine
To make it right
Got to make it right

I hope you’re well
I’m glad you’re happy
And in love again
And maybe some day
We can just be friends
Though I will love you
Till I die
Till I die
Track Name: I Don't Want To Fall In Love Again
I Don’t Want To Fall In Love Again
When I didn’t see you today
Well, I lied when I told you the reason why
The truth is I couldn’t bear to see your face
Cos I don’t want to fall in love again
Yeah, I don’t want to fall in love again

A wary time I see you now
I remember when I held you in my car
And your face was so soft
And so warm
But I don’t want to fall in love again
Yeah, I don’t want to fall in love again

You’re texting as I write this song
It would be funny
If it didn’t hurt quite so much
And you ask me, well
How was my day?
Well, I don’t want to fall in love again
Well, I don’t want to fall in love again
Yeah, I don’t want to fall in love again
I don’t want to feel this pain again
Track Name: Have I Gone Too Far?
Have I Gone Too Far?
Will I see you tonight?
Will you say hello this time?
Or will you just walk by
Like you don’t even know my name?

But I will never be the one
To turn my heart away from loving you
Cos everything I ever felt
And everything I ever said was true

When I reached out to you
All you did was fuck me up
I try hard every day
But it’s never good enough

I will never be the one
To turn my heart away from loving you
Cos everything I ever feel
And everything I ever say is true

Have I gone to far?
Track Name: Invisible Elastic
Invisible Elastic
It stretches between us
Tighter again
It stretches between us
Cos we were once friends
It stretches between us
Though nothing is said
It stretches between us
Cos we shared a bed

Well, I’m old enough to know better
But I’m young enough to
Still be confused
Do you think that’s all that I’m after?
If it was, would I still
Be right here with you?
I can sometimes see
The girl you used to be

Well, I hear the words that you’re saying
And I hear the things you leave unsaid
Now you can’t meet my eyes
Cos of what you showed me
In your grandmother’s bed
I can sometimes see
The girl you used to be

I don’t know who you are
Anymore
Track Name: You Fill Me Up
You Fill Me Up
I need to see you every day
It’s not how I wanted to be
How did I ever get to this stage again
I don’t know?
Well, you slipped into my heart
Like a knife through a crease
Now when I see your face
There’s something there
I don’t know

When I’m with you
I feel brilliant and fun
When I’m without you
I feel empty and dull
You fill me up

Now you’re lying on my bed
Your flesh so pale and soft
And those eyes of yours
Just eat me up
They consume me
You like the colour of my hand
As it slides over you
And you check the contrast
In the mirror
As you’re laughing
Track Name: How Love Feels
How Love Feels
Well, give me one week
In the month of May
Give me one night
And, maybe, just one day

And I’ll do my best
To show you how love feels

Well, tell your boyfriend
You won’t be in town
Tell your mother
She needn’t wear that frown

Well, the world
Doesn’t understand the truth
It thinks love is all about ties
But what we have, just us two
Is bigger than all of their
Tiny lies

So let us joke and touch and laugh
Let us cry and sing and dance

And we’ll do our best
To show them how love feels
Track Name: Missing Her Again
Missing Her Again
It’s the small, cold morning hours
And you’re on your own again
How long will you sing this song
To yourself, under your breath?
Well, your home-made lullaby
Just doesn’t seem to work tonight
Could it be there’s someone missing
So special
It doesn’t sound right?

Are you missing her again?

Well, the last time you held each other
You cried just like a one year old
She pulled you close to her
And smiled while you blew your nose
Well, the last time you saw her face
She waved as she said goodbye
And all you can do for now
Is think of her
And sometimes cry

Are you missing her again?

Today you feel so low
But there’s nothing for you to do
And nowhere to go
Till she’s back with you again

Are you missing her again?
Track Name: Anywhere But Here
Anywhere But Here
I want to take you
Anywhere you want me to
You want to travel
Anywhere but here

Lying with you
Your hair through my fingers
The memory and scent of
Anywhere but here

You were lonely
You couldn’t find me
I couldn’t lose you
Anywhere but here

Now we’re strangers
My love never falters
But you would
Rather be
Anywhere but here
