Del Amitri - Nothing Ever Happens


DEL AMITRI

"Nothing Ever Happens"


Post office clerks put up signs saying 'position closed'
And secretaries turn off typewriters and put on their coats
And janitors padlock the gates
For security guards to patrol
And bachelors phone up their friends for a drink
While the married ones turn on a chat show
And they'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow

Gentlemen time please, you know we can't serve anymore
Now the traffic lights change to stop, when there's nothing to go
And by five o'clock everything's dead
And every third car is a cab
And ignorant people sleep in their beds
Like the doped white mice in the college lab

And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow


Telephone exchanges click while there's nobody there
The Martians could land in the car park and no one would care
Closed-circuit cameras in department stores
Shoot the same movie every day
And the stars of these films neither die nor get killed
Just survive constant action replay


And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow


And bill hoardings advertise products that nobody needs
While "Angry from Manchester" writes to complain about
All the repeats on TV
Computer terminals report some gains in the values of copper and tin
While American businessmen snap up Van Goghs
For the price of a hospital wing


And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
The needle returns to the start of the song
And we all sing along like before
And nothing ever happens, nothing happens at all
They'll burn down the synagogues at six o'clock
And we'll all go along like before
And we'll all be lonely tonight and lonely tomorrow






Of Monsters And Men - Little Talks (Official Video)



"Little Talks"


Hey! Hey! Hey!
I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you, my dear
[Video version:] The stairs creak as you sleep, it's keeping me awake
[Live version:] The stairs creak as I sleep, it's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

And some days I can't even dress myself
It's killing me to see you this way

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey! Hey! Hey!

There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
Well tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young
And full of life and full of love.

[Video version:] Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right
[Live version:] Some days I feel like I'm wrong when I'm right
Your mind is playing tricks on you, my dear

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Hey!

You're gone, gone, gone away
I watched you disappear
All that's left is the ghost of you.
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart,
There's nothing we can do
Just let me go we'll meet again soon
Now wait, wait, wait for me
Please hang around
I'll see you when I fall asleep

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!
Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

"Ho Hey"

(Ho!)
(Hey!)
(Ho!)
(Hey!)


(Ho!) I've been trying to do it right
(Hey!) I've been living a lonely life
(Ho!) I've been sleeping here instead
(Hey!) I've been sleeping in my bed,
(Ho!) Sleeping in my bed

(Hey!)

(Ho!)

(Ho!) So show me family
(Hey!) All the blood that I would bleed
(Ho!) I don't know where I belong
(Hey!) I don't know where I went wrong
(Ho!) But I can write a song

(Hey!)

1, 2, 3

I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweet


(Ho!)
(Hey!)
(Ho!)
(Hey!)


(Ho!) I don't think you're right for him.
(Hey!) Look at what it might have been if you
(Ho!) took a bus to China Town.
(Hey!) I'd be standing on Canal
(Ho!) and Bowery.

(Hey!)
(Ho!) And she'd be standing next to me.

(Hey!)

1, 2, 3

I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart


Love. We need it now
Let's hope for some
'Cause, oh, we're bleeding out


I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart
I belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweet


(Ho!)
(Hey!)
(Ho!)

(The last one)
(Hey!)

New NASA Space Travel Posters

As NASA continues to search for Earth-like planets out in the farthest reaches of space, the agency is also dreaming about what it might be like once we finally land on those planets. To that end, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory has created a series of travel posters the show off what life could be like on three different exoplanets.

Kepler-186f, the first Earth-sized planet found in the habitable zone around a star, for instance, could very well feature wonderfully strange red grass, according to NASA. "If plant life does exist on a planet like Kepler-186f," the agency writes, "its photosynthesis could have been influenced by the star's red-wavelength photons, making for a colour palette that's very different than the greens on Earth."

Other planets like HD 40307g, meanwhile, could potentially have much stronger gravity since it has eight times the mass of Earth, while Kepler-16b could be a lot like the desert planet Tatooine from Star Wars since it orbits two stars at once. "Prospects for life on this unusual world aren't good, as it has a temperature similar to that of dry ice," NASA says of Kepler-16b. "But the discovery indicates that the movie's iconic double-sunset is anything but science fiction."

Check out all of the posters below.

Social Distortion - Story of My Life



"Story Of My Life"

High school seemed like such a blur,

I didn't have much interest in sports or school elections.

And in class I dreamed all day,

Of a rock 'n' roll weekend



And the girl in the front of the room,

So close yet so far y'know she never seemed to notice

That this silly schoolboy crush

Wasn't just pretend.


Life goes by so fast

You only want to do what you think is right.

Close your eyes and then it's past;

Story of my life


And I went down my old neighbourhood

The faces have all changed there's no one left to talk to

And the pool hall I loved as a kid

Is now a Seven Eleven



I went down-town to look for a job

I had no training, no experience to speak of.

I looked at the holes in my jeans

And turned and headed back.


Life goes by so fast

You only want to do what you think is right.

Close your eyes and then it's past;

Story of my life


Good times come and good times go,

I only wish the good times would last a little longer.

I think about the good times we had

And why they had to end.



So I sit at the edge of my bed

I strum my guitar and I sing an outlaw love song.

Thinkin' 'bout what you're doin' now

And when you're comin' back.


Life goes by so fast

You only want to do what you think is right.

Close your eyes and then it's past;

Story of my life
