QuotesEdit

Andy (on the demo): “Found, entombed in fluff, at the bottom of one of Indiana Jones' pockets, but I think a quick suck on it might release a little flavour. One of those ‘capture it now’ moments. Primitive but fascinating, an amoeba of a song.”

LyricsEdit

What can I say

Why do we starve a thing that's near extinction

From day to day,

These weeds of fear,

Are choking our conviction,

Life's like a jig-saw,

You get the straight bits,

But there's something missing in the middle


All of a sudden,

We find the cupboard's bare

All of a sudden,

We find heaven's not there

All of a sudden,

We find the sun's gone cold

All of a sudden

We find we're more than old

All of a sudden,

We find that we've lost love,

So please don't push or shove because,


It's too late,

It's too late,

In all your hurry you've accidentally locked the gate


What can we do

Trying to stem the flow of sand is useless

It's up to you start holding hands,

And watch the balance redress,

Life's like a firework,

You're only lit once,

And you must stand and radiate correctly


All of a sudden,

We find the cupboard's bare

All of a sudden,

We find heaven's not there

All of a sudden,

We find the sun's gone cold

All of a sudden

We find we're more than old

All of a sudden,

We find that we've lost love,

So please don't push or shove because,

It's too late,

It's too late,

In all your hurry you've accidentally locked the gate


Love's not a product you can hoard or pack a suitcase with,

It's more a way you have to give


All of a sudden,

We find the cupboard's bare

All of a sudden,

We find heaven's not there

All of a sudden,

We find the sun's gone cold

All of a sudden

We find we're more than old

All of a sudden,

We find that we've lost love,

So please don't push or shove because,

It's too late,

It's too late,

In all your hurry you've accidentally locked the gate
