Lyrics for: Annie Lennox
Medusa
NO MORE 'I LOVE YOU'S'
TAKE ME TO THE RIVER
A WHITER SHADE OF PALE
DON'T LET IT BRING YOU DOWN
TRAIN IN VAIN
I CAN'T GET NEXT TO YOU
DOWNTOWN LIGHTS
THIN LINE BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE
WAITING IN VAIN
SOMETHING SO RIGHT

NO MORE 'I LOVE YOU'S'
(Freeman/Hughes)
I used to be lunatic
from the gracious days
I used to be woebegone
and so restless nights
My aching heart would bleed
for you to see
Oh but now...
(I don't find myself bouncing home whistling
buttonhole tunes to make me cry)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word

(The lover speaks about the monsters)

I used to have demons in my room at night
Desire,despair,desire,so many monsters
Oh but now...
(I don't find myself bouncing home whistling
buttonhole tunes to make me cry)

*No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me in silence
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word

They were being really crazy
They were on the come.
And you know what mammy?
Everybody was being really crazy. Uh huh.
The monsters are crazy.
There are monsters outsides.

(Repeat*)

Outside the word

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER
(Green/Hodges)
I don't know why I love you like I do
All the changes you put me through
Take my money,my cigarettes
I haven't seen the worst of it yet
I wanna know,can you tell me
I'd really like to stay

*Take me to the river
Drop me in the water
Take me to the river
Drop me in the water

Wash me down,wash me down
Wash me down,wash me down

I don't know why you treat me so bad
Think of all the thing that we could have had
Love is an ocean
And I can't forget my sweet sixteen
I'll never fret
I wanna know,can you tell me
I'd really like to stay

(*Repeat)

Love me,squeeze me
Love me,tease me
Till I can't,till I can't
Till I can't,till I can't-

I don't know why I love you like I do
All the trouble that you put me through
Sixteen candles blowin' on the wall
And here I am the biggest fool of all
I wanna know,can you tell me
I'd really like to stay

Take me to the river
Drop me in the water
Dip me in the water
Drop me in the water
Dip me in the water
Drop me in the water...

A WHITER SHADE OF PALE
(Brooker/Reid)
We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartwheels cross the floor
I was feeling kind of seasick
The crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew away
When we called outfor another drink
But the waiter brought a tray

*And so it was later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale

You said there is no reason
And the truth is plain to see
But I wander through my playing cards
And would not let it be
I'm one of the sixteen virgins
Who are leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were open
They might just as well been closed

(*Repeat)

A whiter shade of pale
Turned a whiter shade of pale
A whiter shade of pale

DON'T LET IT BRING YOU DOWN
(Young)
Old man lyin'
By the side of the road
With the lorries rollin' by
Blue moon sinkin'
From the weight of the load
And the buildings scrape the sky
Cold wind rippin'
Down the valley at dawn
And the morning paper files
Dead man lyin'
By the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes

*Don't let it bring you down
It's only castle burning
Find someone who's turning
And you will come around

Blind man runnin'
Through the light of the night
With an answer in his hand
Come on down to the river of sight
And you can really understand
Red lights flashin'
Through the window in the rain
Can you hear the sirence moan
White cane lyin'
In a gutter in the lane
And you're walkin' home alone

(*Repeat x2)
(**Repeat)
(*Repeat)

You will come around...
