Louis Eliot Lyrics

Country Life – Louis Eliot
I want to live a country life
Living off the land
I'll make you a farmer's wife
If you give me your hand
I've got a country life plan
We're going to raise a family
Baby, me and you
Dig a ditch, plant a tree
Like people used to do

Bridge
I'm sick of all the city lights
Tired of all the clubs
I want to see the stars at night
I'm sick of all the drugs
We're going to take the things we need
Leave the rest behind
A fishing rod, some chicken feed
A long road through the pines

Bridge
I want to watch the sun go down
Where the air is clean
Throw a log onto a fire
Jump across a stream
If it snows at Christmas time
We'll fetch a wild goose
Pour yourself some barley wine
I'm going to fix the roof
I've got a country life plan
We're going to live a country life
Living off the land
I'll make you a farmer's wife
If you give me your hand
I've got a country life plan

Emily – Louis Eliot
Verse 1

Took off our ties
Straight after school
For lager and limes
Shooting pool
Underhand cigarettes
To compilation cassettes

Chorus
Now that those days are over
I wish I'd done more to know her
I was much too caught up with myself
To bother looking back
So I didn't see that Emily
Was slipping through the cracks

Verse 2
There was a club
And we would go
Cutting the rug
In junk shop clothes
Yeah we looked pretty fab
Falling out of a cab

Chorus
Now that those days are over
I wish I'd done more to know her
I was much too caught up with myself
To bother looking back
So I didn't see that Emily
Was slipping through the cracks

Verse 3
Summers went by
She moved around
I know that she tried
To settle down
But playing telephone tag
Can be a bit of a drag

Chorus
Now that those days are over
I wish I'd done more to know her
I was much too caught up with myself
To bother looking back
So I didn't see that Emily
Was slipping through the cracks

Everybody Loves You When You’re Dead – Louis Eliot
Rich kids are born to hate the world
That's why they steal their mother's pearls
All that money makes you sick
You've got to find a way to get your kicks
But you know it's really not his fault
And growing up can be so cold
Victim of a nursery crime
All the mess your father left behind

Chorus
The flowers were white and red
They laid them round the bed
The sun shone down, the hearse drove on ahead
Everybody loves you when you're dead
With a needle in your leg
On a Hammersmith sofa-bed
They only gave you half a chance
When they should've called the ambulance
And though your mother nearly died of shame
When the papers said what was to blame
You can count on her in any crisis
To be handing round the tranquilisers

Chorus
The flowers were white and red
They laid them round the bed
The sun shone down, the hearse drove on ahead
Everybody loves you when you're dead
Never thought we'd miss you
Quite as much as we do
It's too late to tell you now
Top people pay to put it straight
A nose job was your sister's fate
She always was a sacred cow
Well she's married to the surgeon now
And all the people that you used to see
We've all grown up and got healthy
Now and then we'll think of you
As we slip into our daddies' shoes

Chorus
The flowers were white and red
We laid them round the bed
The sun shone down, the hearse drove on ahead
Everybody loves you when you're dead

Go To Sleep – Louis Eliot
When you climb the stairs tonight
And you turn out the bedroom light
Don't worry that I'm far away
We'll be alright
Lay your head
On the sheets
And from across the ocean deep
I'll dream I'm there with you
Oh my darling
Go to sleep
When the clouds cover the sun
Remember this my only one
Blindly through any starless night
To you I'd run
Lay your head
On the sheets
And from across the ocean deep
I'll dream I'm there with you
Oh my darling
Go to sleep
Lay your head
On the sheets
And from across the ocean deep
I'll dream I'm there with you
Oh my darling
Go to sleep
