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?

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

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

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
5.
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?

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
8.
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
9.
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
10.
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?
11.
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

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
