"Sewn" as written by Daniel Giles Sells, Richard Peter Jones, Kevin Francis Jeremiah, Paul Ronald Stewart and Ciaran David Jeremiah....
Give me the song and I'll sing it like I mean it
Give me the words and I'll say them like I mean it

Cos you got my heart in a headlock
You stopped the blood and made my head soft
And god knows
You got me sewn

Nah nah nah

Danny boy, don't be afraid, to shake that ass, and misbehave
Danny boy, I now you got time, but what are you waiting for,
Anyway the dust may just blow away, if you wait for a windy day

But you may find the chance has past you by;

I cant do the walk
I cant do the talk
I cant be your friend
Unless I pretend

So give me the song and I'll sing it like I mean it
So give me the words and I'll say them like I mean it

Cos you got my heart in a headlock
You stopped the blood and made my head soft
And god knows
You've got me sewn

Nah nah nah

Danny boy, don't be a fool
Take upon to break the rule
Danny boy your lookin' so low
You lookin' like the dead grown old
Anyway the blues just may wash away, if you wait for a rainy day
But you may find, the chance had past you by

I cant do the walk
I cant do the talk
I cant be your friend
Unless I pretend

So give me the song and I'll sing it like I mean it
Give me the words and I'll say them like I mean it

Cos you got my heart in a headlock
You stopped the blood and made my head soft
You've got my heart in a headlock
You stopped the blood and made my head soft
Made my head soft
Made my head soft
Made my head soft
Made my head soft
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh Yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentThe first time I really paid attention the lyrics when hearing this song as a single, the "I can't be your friend.." line immediately jumped out at me. To me, there was no other explanation than that the singer/lyricist was gay and was referring to his love for a straight man. Not that everyone doesn't deal with unrequited love and can relate to it; but it's such a common fear among gay men (and presumably women) that not only will the love be unreturned, but that it will in fact destroy your friendship, that I was sure only a gay man would have worded it that way. I googled the band right away and was proven correct.

    Needless to say, I relate to it a bit too much...

    General CommentI see this more like a dialogue between a guy and a girl. Basically the girl is saying "don`t be such a wuss" and the guy replies "but you made me the wuss I am". :D

    General CommentI totally love this song, i think it would be cool if they only did the piano to!
    Anywho..
    I think this song is about a boy who isnt really outgoing ore social.
    And he meets this girl and falls totally in love with her, like almost obsessed! And than she is telling him in the song: come on live ur life, missbehave!
    And hes like: ill do whatever u want, ill be whatever you want me 2 be

    I can't do the walk
    I can't do the talk
    I can't be your friend
    Unless I pretend

    So he is pretending to be someone else just 2 be her friend or lover.


    So give me the song and I'll sing it like I mean it
    Give me the words and I'll say them like I mean it

    See hes lying! He will do everything for her/him (is he gay?)

    Cos you got my heart in a headlock
    You stopped the blood and made my head soft
    And god knows
    You've got me sewn

    That girl is fucks up his head. He's so obsessed and he's ye sewn!

    love to see what somebody else thinksxxx

    General CommentWhen he's saying Danny boy that's what a girl is saying to him (Lead singers name is Dan). It's about him meeting a really cool girl and treating her like a queen instead of being himself and living his own life.
