"Writer's Block" as written by and Jack Christopher Allsopp....
I must have got up about twenty to seven
Had a shower and had breakfast
And had a couple of pieces of toast
You know, forced it down

Then had a cup of coffee
It was pouring with rain
And I thought oh God
You know, good old England

I get this writer's block
It comes as quite a shock
And now I'm stuck between
A hard place and the biggest rock

In my own head consumed
I sit back in my room
It's like the tapestries of life
Get tangled in the loom

I'm like a butterfly
Caught in a hurricane
My pulse is quickenin'
As my heart plays a new refrain

I'm lovin' Mary Jane
Flyin' with Lois Lane
On board a bullet train
Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
Don't know yet if I'm glad I came

(Obviously this helped me I think)
Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
(I always hoped that it would happen)
(But I never thought it really would)

Sometimes at night I think too much
About life and love and music and stuff
I mustn't sort of build
My hopes was too high

I'm livin' in the past
My clock's an hour fast
Should really go and make a coffee
But I can't be arsed

I've lost my mobile phone
You'll have to call my home
On second thoughts, just leave a message
When you hear the tone

My grimy windows show
The early morning glow
Another day, another dollar
In my one man show

I'm lovin' Mary Jane
Flyin' with Lois Lane
On board a bullet train
Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
Don't know yet if I'm glad I came

(Obviously this helped me I think)
Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
(I always hoped that it would happen)
(But I never thought it really would)

I fell out with Mary Jane
I don't speak to Lois Lane
And I missed that bullet train
But now I know I'm glad I

I fell out with Mary Jane
I don't speak to Lois Lane
And I missed that bullet train
But now I know I'm glad I

I fell out with Mary Jane
I don't speak to Lois Lane
And I missed that bullet train
But now I know I'm glad I

I fell out with Mary Jane
I don't speak to Lois Lane
And I missed that bullet train
But now I know I'm glad I came
But now I know I'm glad I came

    General CommentCORRECT LYRICS:

    Just Jack – Writer’s Block

    “I must have got up about twenty to seven, had a shower, and had breakfast, and er, had a couple of pieces of toast, you know, forced it down, then had a cup of coffee, it was pouring with rain and I thought oh God, you know, proper England.”

    I get this writer's block; it comes as quite a shock,
    And now I'm stuck between a hard place and the biggest rock,
    In my own head consume, I sit back in my room,
    It's like the tapestries of life get tangled in the loom,
    I'm like a butterfly, caught in a hurricane,
    My pulse is quickening as my heart plays a new refrain

    I'm lovin' Mary Jane, flyin' with Lois Lane,
    On board a bullet train
    Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
    Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
    “Obviously this helped me I think.”
    Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
    Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
    “I always hoped that it would happen but I never though it really would.”

    Sometimes at night I think too much,
    About life and love and music and stuff
    “I must have, kind of felt that my head was too high.”

    I'm livin' in the past,
    My clock is an hour fast,
    Should really go and make a coffee but I can't be arsed,
    I've lost my mobile phone,
    You'll have to call my home,
    On second thoughts just leave a message when you hear the tone,
    My grimy windows show, the early morning glow,
    Another day, another dollar in my one man show

    I'm lovin' Mary Jane, flyin' with Lois Lane,
    On board a bullet train
    Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
    Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
    “Obviously this helped me I think.”
    Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
    Don't know yet if I'm glad I came
    “I always hoped that it would happen but I never though it really would.”

    I fell out with Mary Jane, I don't speak to Lois Lane and I missed that bullet train
    But now I know I'm glad I -
    Fell out with Mary Jane, I don't speak to Lois Lane and I missed that bullet train
    But now I know I'm glad I -
    Fell out with Mary Jane, I don't speak to Lois Lane and I missed that bullet train
    But now I know I'm glad I -
    Fell out with Mary Jane, I don't speak to Lois Lane and I missed that bullet train
    But now I know I'm glad I came
    But now I know I'm glad I came

    General Commentyou say

    “I must have got up about twenty to seven, had a shower, and had breakfast, and er, had a couple of pieces of toast, you know, forced it down, then had a cup of coffee, it was pouring with rain and I thought oh God, you know, proper England.”

    as the CORRECT lyrics but I'm pretty sure it says "oh god, you know, good old england"

    I can't be bothered to read the rest :)

    General Commentwhy does he say coffee? I mean if he's trying to capture England in that first paragraph.. surely he means TEA!

    I love this song and his voice but that bit annoys me ha.

    General CommentThat's a shame.

    I love this song for everything it's worth.

    What it means, to me, is living in illusions and pleasures, but not knowing for sure if you're glad you're alive, or came to be where you're at.

    But then you get to see some truth in live, and you stop smoking, or living in fantasies. And since you're living in a real life, and you're making it, you know you can be glad to be alive.

    “I must have, kind of felt that my head was too high.”
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    I don't think so. More like, "I mustn't have built my hopes too high."

    General Commenti think i might have a clue as to what this song means?

    i was listening to it today, and i was wondering why there was a woman talking, and it all clicked in.

    I was thinking maybe, he and a woman were in a relationship, and got her pregnant, "dont know yet if im glad i came" dont know if thats just my dirty mind?

    and then through the song she cuts in and says "I always hoped that it would happen but I never though it really would"

    he gets scared, leaves town for a while to think, then comes back to her. When he coems back, he realizes he has to change, quits smoking, changes his ways, and is glad she's pregnant.

    maybe this song ISNT about him in particular.
    maybe my theory isnt even close to being correct ahaha.
