Women In Technology Lyrics

1. Undressed (4.17)

Let me help you get undressed
I’m no better than the rest
And I know you can see through
All I’ve said today
But for an hour maybe two
It will just be me and you
We can find a place where no-one
Ever wants to go
I can make it if you stay
I can’t take it if you go

I’ve had too many one night stands
I’ve had too many broken plans
Now when I need someone I find
Myself alone
And I know it’s the same for you
You’ve told me all that you’ve been
through, We can put the past behind
All we’ll share today
I can make it if you stay
I can’t take it if you go

Let me help you get undressed
I’m no better that the rest
And I know you can see through
All I’ve said today
But for an hour maybe two
Let’s pretend I’m the man for you
It will almost seem like nothing
Ever, ever changed
I can make it if you stay
I can’t take it if you go
I can make it if you stay
I can’t take it if you go

2. Thursday at the Blue Note (2.48)

Well I don’t think that I know you
I’ve never seen you here
Before all though I could be wrong
And though this music doesn’t move me
Thrill or even soothe me
I think I might dance to just this one song

Is that your brother dancing with you?
He’s giving me some funny looks
I though you said you were on your own
Look, I know I’m no oil painting
But my face doesn’t need re-arranging
And I’m quite attached to all my bones.

This isn’t the way things were meant to be
Now he’s waiting outside with his mates for
me. “Thursday at the Blue Note”.

3. A Week Next June (4.17)

You’re crying, cos I’ve spilt your paints
again, But in a few short years,
You’ll understand true life pain
When those baby eyes of yours,
Have turned the brightest blue,
And boys fall into them
You just won’t know what to do.

And I can see you trying.
To make him understand,
And I can see him ask why
He can’t be your man.

Now winter’s around us.
And your kisses keep me warm again,
but when the spring brings the flowers,
Will they wash away with the rain?
And when the land is wrapped in white,
We’re as happy as kids could be.
I’ll let you win every snowball fight,
If you’ll only stay with me.

And I can see you trying.
To make him understand,
And I can see him ask why
He can’t be your man.

I see you’re leaving,
Has March really come so soon?
I don’t want to pressure you.
But can we make a date a week next June?
And I never understand.
Why you run away
Because I know he’s waiting for you,
Every sunny, cloudless day.

And I can see you trying.
To make him understand,
And I can see him ask why
He can’t be your man.

And I can see me trying.
To make you understand,
And I can see me ask why
I can’t be your man.

4. Your Woman (4.18)

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.

5. White Town (2.21)

I can’t understand
After everything that we planned,
How you could turn around to me and
whisper goodbye. Well I’ve been dropped before
But not so high off the floor
And I just can’t seem to pick myself up
again. If it’s something that I said
That made you feel this way,
Then I take back every word from the first
hello, But most likely I know.
Your parents said baby no
And the boy you told your friends about
just had to go. Well it’s a white town
with green trees. And nothing in love is free
So if it’s not worth fighting for It’s worth nothing at all.

6. The Shape of Love (5.20)

Here’s the best I can do
So far away from you
As the ocean holds the sky
So I try to hold your eyes

And I know the world is turning
I know it’s yesterday for you
But the shape we’re giving love
Could never be untrue

Choose the way you want to be
That doesn’t mean him or me
Love is so much more that flesh
How to hurt and how to kiss

And I know the world is turning
I know it’s yesterday for you
But the shape we’re giving love
Could never be untrue

I wish I’d known you when
I could have made a change
I would have been a friend
I would have given you anything

As you touch near your heart
Are we really far apart?
Yes I know distance kills
But it can’t fight love’s will

And I know the world is turning
I know it’s yesterday for you
But the shape we’re giving love
Could never be untrue

And we know the world is turning
We know that yesterday is due.
But this shape we’re giving love
Can never be untrue.
This shape can never be untrue.

7. Wanted (4.23)

(by Ann Person)

You didn’t notice I existed that night
I jumped & I waved
Even shouted your name that night

But it’s all the same
You’ll never see me again
All I wanted
You see my face
But it’s all the same
You’ll never see me again
All I wanted

You’re so pretty
You turn me inside out
And I only say this
Because I know I’m not

But it’s all the same
You’ll never see me again
All I wanted
You see my face
But it’s all the same
You’ll never see me again
All I wanted

And now I’m standing
And you’ve left me with what?
And now you thank me
for what you’ve got

But it’s all the same
you’ll never see me again
All I wanted
You see my face
But it’s all the same
You’ll never see me again
All I wanted

8. The Function Of The Orgasm (2.24)

It’s half past eight, and I’m waiting
In a beautiful place
Anticipating everything we’ll do
And all we’ll say.
Till your father sees you again

Now I don’t know just what you’re doing
Is it me or him
That you’re screwing?
But I don’t care and you don’t care
When you’re here

Now the storm is here
I see you running
Your face full of tears.
So red and burning
And I can’t work out
How you spend
Another day with him

Just say the word
You know I’ll do it
I’m waiting for you
Just let me do it
And we can run away to another place.
Less full of fear.

9. Going Nowhere Somehow (5.21)

Take a look at where you’re going
Do you know where you come from?
Seems like you’ve spent your life just
searching, In the length of just one song

But you know you’re going nowhere
Like so many of your age
This has gone on far too long now
To be dismissed as another phase

Well you can turn the clock back
Pretend that you’re still young and
unaware. But everyone that you lack
weighs upon your mind, When she’s not there

I don’t want to break your heart,
I don’t want to let you down
It’s just that I always thought
Life would be more than just
Going nowhere somehow.

Now your friends are disappearing
They’re getting scarcer day by day
You’ve only got yourself to blame for
that, You always wanted things that way
Cos it’s easier being lonely
Than being let down again and again
When you’re standing on edge of
things, It means you never have to pretend.

Well you can turn the clock back
Pretend that you’re still young and
unaware. But everyone that you lack
weighs upon your mind,
When she’s not there

I don’t want to break your heart
I don’t want to let you down
It’s just that I always thought
Life would be more than just
Going nowhere somehow.

11. Death of My Desire (4.53)

Here my child
Rest your head on me.
Cos I’m the safest man you’ll ever meet.
I’ll tell you a story
I won’t expect you to believe
About a boy who lost his reason to deceive

It’s the death of my desire

While I grew up I hid behind a smile.
I was never allowed to be an average child.
And now the years have forced
me to be a man. I find I can’t go
Along with this meaningless sham.

It’s the death of my desire.

I want to find a new way
But I can’t make it on my own,
I want a partner in crime
So I don’t feel so alone.

So come to bed,
I won’t disturb your sleep.
Cos I’ve a secret I’m determined not to keep
I see you understand my point of view,
You’re safe because there’s nothing I
need from you.

It’s the death of my desire.

12. Once I Flew (4.24)

Once I flew
And it made my fingertips sing
I was more like a God than a King
Now I can’t believe that was true

Once I flew
Though you don’t believe me I know
You look where I’m standing now
You can’t believe I left the ground.

Look up to the bright blue sky
Can’t you feel life passing by
If you could wouldn’t you
Try to soar over everything?
All the pain this world can bring
Once I flew now I’ve lost my wings
Now I’m down here with you
Now I’m down here with you

Once I flew
And the angels were my friends
They would grant me every whim
Now I can’t believe that was true
Once I flew
Though it’s easy to forget
I don’t seem to have managed yet.

And I don’t think I ever will

Look up to the bright blue sky
Can’t you feel the life passing by?
If you could wouldn’t you
Try to soar over everything?
All the pain this world can bring
Once I flew now I’ve lost my wings
Now I’m down here with you
Now I’m down here with you.

<Astronauts>

And in my dreams I am happy again
You’re in my arms and we’re flying
again, Flying away.
