lyrics

Nobody Wants To Be Loved

Well it’s drunk text o’clock, all-a-sudden, I’m hot
I’m thinking that’s just you but then..
We should probably be phoning, not sitting alone-ing
And freaking ourselves out again
Or curled up in bed, my arm under your head
With you thinking I’d better not snore
How’d I get so deranged as to let you arrange
The heartstrings on the cutting-room floor

We’ve talks about talking, but they don’t get anywhere
Well - at least nowhere you’d like
Maybe they’re better off left in the bedroom
Away from that harsh old daylight
You say you don’t want me for day to day living
But why are we running away?
Are the stories all told, Have we stopped chasing gold?
Have the feelings all hardened like clay?

Chorus

Tonight feels so cold and so empty
Like a frozen hand’s dream of a glove
For everybody wants to be a lover
But nobody wants to be loved

I’ve chased you, and caught you, tried to unknot you
But you’ve anger that lurks deep inside
It bites when it hurts, and it doesn’t bark first
And I’ve got my own sin of pride
You don’t like my family, you don’t like my friends
And in truth I’m not mad on your own
Though we look good together, like lace sown to leather
The holes in the pattern have grown






Chorus

Tonight feels so cold and so empty
Like a frozen hand’s dream of a glove
For everybody wants to be a lover
But nobody wants to be loved

If I was the right one, you’d not be the left one, my dear
But I’m getting so tired of finding that we’re right back here…
You say that you’re chasing a dream and you’re not scared to fail
Well baby that’s fine but I think you’re just chasing your tail

Tonight feels so cold and so empty
Like a frozen hand’s dream of a glove
For everybody wants to be a lover
But nobody wants to be loved

Teknopeasant aka Conor O'Kane is a Banjo-shredding blues-punk mountain-man preacher for the post-apocalyptic generation. His no-holds-barred assaults on consumer society, greedy agricultural practises and pointless political labyrinths work through the innterplay of musicality, humour and rage. His gentler side comes across in his beautiful folk songs and country-blues tinged tales of caravan life ... more
