Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

My view of British attitudes.
People think the know everything
The value of the Pound, the Euro
That there is a God watching over us
Oh, to be so powerful ; so suree

How can you answer those questions
When you don't even know your heart
What makes you think you can price love
If you don't allow yourself to feel it

You're protesting against war by starting a fight
Voting for parties who all have the same agenda
Tie to me a cross or burn me on a chair
But today I will have my say

Take time out of your endlessly busy day
Stop and watch people in the street
Do you wonder what they're thinking
Is suffering really just self pity

Can I ask where you find the courage
To voice your opinions on Mr Brown
When you won't even talk about sex or arguments
Do you know that you've stopped caring

We fill our heads with finance, headlines, sport
But what about the kiss you brushed away
Or the eager dog you ignored
How about turning off the T.V and talking

Don't lie when asked ''How are you?''
Nobody is fine or O.K so take the time
To talk about it and listen too
When did you last talk through the night

I'm no preacher and certainly no saint
But I still enjoy the small things in life
Like stopping to let the sun warm my face
Lift your head and smile, you are a temporary geust in this life.
