"Falling And Laughing" as written by and Edwyn Stephen Collins....
You may think me very naive
Taken as true
I only see what I want to see

Avoid eye contact at all costs
What can I do
To see your fine teeth smiling at me

You might say
That we should build a city of tears
All I'm saying
Is I'm alone and consequently
Only my tears satisfy the real need of my heart
I resist

You say that there's a thousand like you
Maybe that's true
I fell or you and nobody else
So I'm standing here so lonely
What can i do
But learn to laugh at myself

You might say
That we should build a city of tears
All I'm saying
Is I'm alone and consequently
Only my tears satisfy the real need of my heart
I resist

Fall falling falling again
Cos I want to take the pleasure with the pa-in
Fall falling - falling again
Cos I wan to take
The pleasure with the pain pain pain pain pain pain pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-in
Falling and laughing
Falling and laughing
Falling and laughing
Falling and laugh - ing

    General CommentEdwyn said 'too much lesbian intervention' (Hacienda 1981) - he also said 'wooo rock & roll' quite a lot

    General CommentOne of my very favourite OJ songs. Tender, mocking, sad, yearning. Great tune, too - I am nearly sure you could dance around your handbags to this one (although you have to speed up a bit at the end)!
