Mika song lyrics

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just realised I didn't have lyrics to any of Mika's songs. So I started searching for them here and all I could find were the words to Grace Kelly.

 

I thought it might be a good idea to gather them all in one thread. My friends from the Scissor Sisters board will recognise this. There is a thread where people transcribe new songs etc. but the important part about it is that all lyrics are added to the first post by the administrator. So you can always find them.

 

I lifted these from the other thread here, so my post wouldn't look too bare:

 

Grace Kelly

 

Do I attract you?

Do I repulse you with my queasy smile?

Am I too dirty?

Am I too flirty?

Do I like what you like?

 

I could be wholesome

I could be loathsome

I guess Im a little bit shy

Why dont you like me?

Why dont you like me without making me try?

 

I try to be like Grace Kelly

But all her looks were too sad

So I try a little Freddie

Ive gone identity mad!

 

I could be brown

I could be blue

I could be violet sky

I could be hurtful

I could be purple

I could be anything you like

Gotta be green

Gotta be mean

Gotta be everything more

Why dont you like me?

Why dont you like me?

Why dont you walk out the door!

 

How can I help it

How can I help it

How can I help what you think?

Hello my baby

Hello my baby

Putting my life on the brink

Why dont yo like me

 

Why dont you like me

Why dont you like yourself?

Should I bend over?

Should I look older just to be put on the shelf?

 

I try to be like Grace Kelly

But all her looks were too sad

So I try a little Freddie

Ive gone identity mad!

 

I could be brown

I could be blue

I could be violet sky

I could be hurtful

I could be purple

I could be anything you like

Gotta be green

Gotta be mean

Gotta be everything more

Why dont you like me?

Why dont you like me?

Why dont you walk out the door!

 

Say what you want to satisfy yourself

But you only want what everybody else says you should want

 

I could be brown

I could be blue

I could be violet sky

I could be hurtful

I could be purple

I could be anything you like

Gotta be green

Gotta be mean

Gotta be everything more

Why dont you like me?

Why dont you like me?

Why dont you walk out the door!

Oh Billy Brown had lived an ordinary life.

Two kids, a dog, and then the cautionary wife.

While it was all going according to plan

Then Billy Brown fell in love with another man.

He met his lover almost every single day

Making excuses through his dodgy holiday

(Unto religion that he said and duty found

They didn’t know his faith was (earthy bound)

 

Brown…Oh Billy Brown.

Don’t let the stars get you down.

Don’t let the waves let you drown.

Brown…Oh Billy Brown.

Gonna pick you up like a paper cup.

Gonna shake the water out of every nook.

Oh Billy Brown.

 

Oh Billy Brown needed a place, somewhere to go.

He found an island off the coast of Mexico

Leaving his lover and his family behind.

Oh Billy Brown needed to find some peace of mind.

And on his journey and his travels on the way,

He met a girlie who was brave enough to say,

When they made love he shared the burden of his mind.

Oh Billy Brown you are a victim of the times.

 

Brown…Oh Billy Brown.

Don’t let the stars get you down.

Don’t let the waves let you drown.

Brown…Oh Billy Brown.

Gonna pick you up like a paper cup.

Gonna shake the water out of every nook.

Oh Billy Brown.

Ah....

 

Took a ride to the end of the line

Where no one ever goes.

Ended up on a broken train with nobody I know.

But the pain and the longings the same.

When you’re dying

Now I’m lost and I’m screaming for help.

 

Relax, take it easy

For there is nothing that we can do.

Relax, take it easy

Blame it on me or blame it on you.

 

It’s as if I’m scared.

It’s as if I’m terrified.

It’s as if I scared.

It’s as if I’m playing with fire.

Scared.

It’s as if I’m terrified.

Are you scared?

Are we playing with fire?

 

Relax

There is an answer to the darkest times.

It’s clear we don’t understand it but the last thing on my mind

Is to leave you", [EDIT]

I believe that we’re in this together.

Don’t scream – there are so many roads left.

 

Relax, take it easy

For there is nothing that we can do.

Relax, take it easy

Blame it on me or blame it on you.

 

Relax, take it easy

For there is nothing that we can do.

Relax, take it easy

Blame it on me or blame it on you.

 

Relax, take it easy

For there is nothing that we can do.

Relax, take it easy

Blame it on me or blame it on you.

 

Relax, take it easy

For there is nothing that we can do.

Relax, take it easy

Blame it on me or blame it on you.

 

It’s as if I’m scared.

It’s as if I’m terrified.

It’s as if I scared.

It’s as if I’m playing with fire.

Scared.

It’s as if I’m terrified.

Are you scared?

Are we playing with fire?

 

Relax

Relax

Relax

 

Ah...

Relax

 

Ah....

I really can't vouch for lyrics of this song - found on the web.... Think there will be a few corrections but it's a start point?

 

Stuck In The Middle

 

I sit and think about the day that you’re gonna die,

‘Cos your wrinkled eyes betrayed the joy with which you smiled.

Care to see my reason?

Care to put your life in mine?

Looking at life from the perspective of a boy

Who’s learnt to love you but has also learned to grow.

Could we make it better, stormy weather,

So I dunno.

 

Oh, oh, oh – Is there anybody home?

Who’ll believe me, won’t deceive me, who’ll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah – Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle.

 

I look at you,

You look at me,

We bite each other.

And with your better words you kick me in the gutter.

But my troops are bigger than yours

‘Cos you’ll never stand my fight.

Ours is a family that’s based upon tradition

But with my careless words I tread upon your vision.

Are five kids better than one, who’d busy like to be gone?

 

Oh, oh, oh – Is there anybody home?

Who’ll believe me, won’t deceive me, who’ll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah – Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle.

Yea...Yea...Yea...

 

This is to my name,

This ain’t a pretty plan to break your heart of me.

I know that what I’ve started means that when we have parted

I can live in all this (stench?).

 

Oh, oh, oh – Is there anybody home?

Who’ll believe me, won’t deceive me, who’ll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah – Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle,

Stuck in the middle,

Stuck in the middle,

Stuck in the middle.

I had "It’s clear we don’t understand it but the last thing on my mind is to leave you", otherwise they're identical.

'My Attempt' at these lyrics... well it's a start. Please feel free to suggest corrections or alternatives?

 

MY INTERPRETATION

 

You talk about life and talk about death

And everything in-between like it’s nothing

And words are easy

You talk about me, you talk about you

And everything I do

Like it’s something that needs repealing

I don’t need an alibi, or for you to realize

The things we left unsaid

Are only taking space up in our heads

Make it my fault, win the game

Point the finger, place the blame

And curse me up and down

It doesn’t matter now

 

‘Cos I don’t care if ever talk to you again

This is not about emotion

I don’t need a reason not to tell

What you say or what will happen in end

This is my interpretation

And it don’t, don’t make sense

 

The first two weeks turn into ten

I hold my breath and wonder when it’ll happen

Does it really matter?

If half of what you said is true

And half of what I didn’t do

Could be different

And would make you better

If we forget the things we know

Could have somewhere to go

If the only way is down

I can see them now

 

‘Cos I don’t care if I every talk to you again

This is not about emotion

I don’t need a reason not to tell

What you say or what will happen in the end

This is my interpretation

And it don’t, don’t make sense

 

And it don’t have to make no sense to you at all

‘Cos this is my interpretation

…. yeah, yeah (?)

OK... a first attempt at this.... corrections please?

 

HAPPY ENDING

 

This is the way you left me

I’m not pretending

No hope, no love, no glory

No happy ending

This is the way that we love

Like it’s for ever

Then live the rest of our life

But not together

 

Wake the morning, stumble in my life

Can’t get no love without sacrifice

If anything should happen

Of this I wish you well

Mmm, a little bit heaven

A little bit of hell

 

This is the hardest story that I’ve ever told

No hope of love or glory

Happy ending’s gone for evermore

I feel as if I’m wasted

And I wasted every day

 

This is the way you left me

I’m not pretending

No hope, no love, no glory

No happy ending

This is the way that we love

Like it’s for ever

And live the rest of our life

But not together

 

Two o’clock in the morning, something’s on my mind

Can’t get no rest, keep walking around

If I pretend that nothing ever went wrong

I can get to my sleep, I can think that we just carried on

 

This is the hardest story that I’ve ever told

No hope of love or glory

Happy endings gone for evermore

I feel as if I’m wasted

And I wasted every day

 

Oh I….

This is the way you left me

I’m not pretending

Feel as I’m wasted

No hope of love or glory

No happy ending

And I….

This is the way that we love

Like it’s forever

Wasted every day

Then live the rest of my life

But not together

 

Little bit of love

 

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Hm little bit of love

 

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

 

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

 

And I

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Feel as if I’m wasted

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

And I

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Wasted every day

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Little bit of love

Hey, hey hey

 

This is the way you left me

I’m not pretending

No hope of love or glory

No happy ending

This is the way that we love

And it’s for ever

Then live the rest of my life

But not together

 

This is the way you left me

I’m not pretending

No hope, no love, no glory

No happy ending

This the way that we love

And it’s for ever

Then live the rest of our life

But not together

 

This is the way you left me

I’m not pretending

No hope, no love, no glory

No happy ending

This is what I've got:

 

Any Other World

 

In any other world you could tell the difference

And let it all unfurl into broken remnants

Smile like you mean it

And let yourself let go

’Cause it’s all in the hands of a bitter, bitter man

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in

Take a bow, play the part of a lonely, lonely heart

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in

To the world you thought you lived in

 

I tried to live alone but lonely is so lonely lone

So human as I am I had to give up my defences

So I smiled and tried to mean it

To make myself let go

’Cause it’s all in the hands of a bitter, bitter man

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in

Take a bow, play the part of a lonely, lonely heart

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in

To the world you thought you lived in

 

’Cause it’s all in the hands of a bitter, bitter man

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in

Take a bow, play the part of a lonely, lonely heart

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in

To the world you thought you lived in

 

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in

Say goodbye

 

In any other world you could tell the difference

BIG GIRL (YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL)

 

Big girls, you are beautiful

 

Walks in to the room

Feels like a big balloon

I said, ‘Hey girl, you are beautiful’

‘Diet coke and a pizza please’

Diet coke, I’m on my knees screaming

‘Big girl, you are beautiful’.

 

You take your skinny girl

Feel like I’m gonna die

‘Cos a real woman

Needs a real man, here’s why

You take your girl

And multiply her by four

Now a whole lotta woman

Needs whole lot more

 

Get yourself to the Butterfly Lounge

Find yourself a big lady

Big boy, come on round

And they’ll be calling you ‘Baby’

You don’t need to fanaticise

Since I was in my braces

Watering hole with the girls around

And curves in all the right places
