I Wanna Be Your Ex Won’t you say my name Tell me when you’re gonna choose Your love is just a game And I’m the one who’s gonna lose So don’t tell me that you understand The way I wanna hold your hand cos I wanna be your ex And love is not control Heavy chains we choose to wear Dare we break the mould Do we love enough to share? So don’t tell me that’s there’s just one way That we’re allowed to live and love today cos I wanna be your ex

Oh, David In the summer When you saw him Did you understand a single thing he said I know you kissed him But did you miss him Everything he shared went over your head Oh, David don’t be cruel Don’t treat him like a fool You know that boy Is hanging on to every word you say Oh, David don’t be blind Why do you have to be so unkind You know it means the world to him If you go or stay And while he’s sleeping I know you’re creeping Flicking left and right Till you find another boy You say it’s only Because you’re lonely Are you surprised that’s true When you always run away? Oh, David don’t be cruel Don’t treat him like a fool You know that boy Is hanging on to every word you say Oh, David don’t be blind Why do you have to be so unkind You know it means the world to him If you go or stay Oh, David don’t be cruel Don’t treat him like a fool You know it means the world to him If you go or stay Oh, David don’t be blind Why do you have to be so unkind You know that boy Is hanging on to every word you say

The Barren Seas Names, like old chains They tumble from my tongue Love, that once was sweet Now darker than the sun Words, they always fail me When I need them most Sense, it always leaves me When I feel you close to me I can see the harbour I can see the land Won’t you row us closer So we can walk the sands We’ve sailed the barren seas We’ve never found true peace Pain, my oldest friend She waits in every port Pay for happiness But that feller can’t be bought Swords, they always shatter when I need them most Guns, they always seize up When I feel you close to me I can see the harbour I can see the land Won’t you row us closer So we can walk the sands We’ve been sailing so long We can’t recall our names We don’t know where we’re heading But we carry on the same We’ve sailed the barren seas We’ve never found true peace

I’m Giving Up I saw a picture of you kissing him And I was lost Again I really thought that I had worked out how to be Nothing more than friends But what you gave me was something that I’ve Never had before And now you’re leaving I find it so hard To close that door Cos I know you don’t love me I know you don’t care So I’m giving up, baby I’m giving up Yeah I’m giving up It’s been months since I sang to you It’s been years since we shared a bed And every time I see you there’s A little more unsaid You used to ask me how my day had been We used to talk till you fell asleep It’s pretty obvious I’m not the one You wanted to keep Cos I know you don’t love me I know you don’t care So I’m giving up, baby I’m giving up Yeah I’m giving up And every time I see you You’re more beautiful And every time I see you You are farther away Some days the only way I see you smile Is when I hold a camera In front of my face Cos I know you don’t love me I know you don’t care So I’m giving up, baby I’m giving up Yeah Well, I know I still love you I know I still care But I’m giving up, baby I’m giving up Yeah I’m giving up I’m giving up

How I Love You Look at our love Can you see how it’s changed A thousand shapes That we never show the world But why should we Hide who we really are This life’s so short And it goes so very fast Be brave I know that times are tough And I’ll be the one who picks you up again You’ve always got a friend in me Oh can’t you see How I love you How I love you Your every word Your every smile and thought They mean so much And you know I love you more and more I’ve never met a soul that’s quite like yours It runs so hot It runs so strong and oh so pure Be brave I know that times are tough And I’ll be the one who picks you up again You’ve always got a friend in me Oh can’t you see How I love you How I love you How I love you

Craig David Girl Well, Monday girl stole my heart Then Thursday girl kicked it apart By the time the weekend had come It was way too late for me I knew I had fallen in love In love with you Again My friend My love Well, what can we do When we are at sea? And there’s one rule for him Another for me? Well, I’ve tried my best To be everything that you need But there’s something I can’t deny Something I feel for you Inside My friend My love Well, your husband He loves you Loves you true But unfortunately Now I do too

Are You That Kind Of Girl? Are you the kind of girl that I could kiss? Are you the kind of girl I would grow to miss? Are you the kind of girl that could change my life? Are you the kind of girl I could call my wife? Are you that? Are you that kind of girl? Are you the kind of girl that would make me start to think? Are you the kind of girl that would make me stop and blink? Are you the kind of girl that would never defer to any man? Are you the kind of girl that would GLAADly hold my hand? Are you that? Are you that kind of girl?

Deemab Well, you promised me forever But that didn’t last too long I tried my best to blame you But I knew that I was wrong Oh, my love is useless There’s nothing to be done Oh, my love is useless And this is not much fun Well, I know that life is cruel And love fades like a scar But I really thought we’d make it We’d be the ones to last Oh, my love is useless There’s nothing to be done Oh, my love is useless And this is not much fun And this is not much fun Oh fuck.

Your Woman 1917 Just tell me what you've got to say to me I've been waiting for so long to hear the truth It comes as no surprise at all you see So cut the crap and tell me that we're through Now I know your heart, I know your mind You don't even know you're being unkind So much for all your highbrow Marxist ways Just use me up and then you walk away Boy you can't play me that way Well I guess what you say is true I could never be the right kind of girl for you I could never be your woman When I saw my best friend yesterday She said she never liked you from the start Well me, I wish that I could claim the same But you always knew you held my heart And you're such a charming handsome man Now I think I finally understand Is it in your genes? I don't know But I'll soon find out, that's for sure Why did you play me this way? Well I guess what you say is true I could never be the right kind of girl for you I could never be your woman Well I guess what they say is true I could never spend my life with a man like you I could never be your woman

Edge Is Strong, Edge Is Sharp This time I'm not gonna be the same And it's time That you learned to say my name Give it up your old lie Give it up your old life Or You're not my friend any more Any more Life should cut you like a knife You're not really living unless you feel every slice Never settle for what they've got Hate a little but love a lot You do the same thing every night I'm tired of saving you from pointless fights Give it up your old life Give it up your old lie Or You're not my friend any more Any more Life should cut you like a knife You're not really living unless you feel every slice Never settle for what they've got Hate a little but love a lot Life should cut you like a knife You're not really living unless you feel every slice Never settle for what they've got Hate a little but love a lot

This Could Be The Best Thing Well, this could be the best thing That you ever had Could be the best thing So it's just too bad You don't even see me You don't know my name Well that's not quite true But it's all a fucked-up game For you Well, I know I'm As ugly As you're beautiful But I'm not stupid And I know full well Just what we're missing Cos we had it one time All of that closeness Did it fade away and die For you?

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
