You got to
You got to
You got to

Tape ain't gonna fix it honey,
It ain't gonna stick
Tape ain't gonna fix it honey,
It ain't gonna stick to you

Six kinds of glue
Won't hold you
Won't hold you
Oh my oh, oh my you've got to...

You've got to go steal ahead
You've got to
You've got to go steal ahead
You've got to
You've got to go steal ahead

Time ain't gonna cure you
Honey, time don't give a shit
Time ain't gonna cure you
Honey, time's just gonna hit on you

I said, time ain't gonna cure you
Honey, time don't give a shit
Time ain't gonna cure you honey
Time's just gonna hit on you
You've got to go

You've got to go steal ahead
You've got to
You've got to go steal ahead
You've got to
You've got to go steal ahead

    General CommentI have always though Alison sang "You got a ghost in your head", and not "You got to go steal ahead." Haha!

    General CommentI don't think theft of any kind is involved. It's a misspelling. "Steel." They're just saying you have to be strong. "Go steel ahead." It's simple.

    General Commentdoes anyone else think that the part that says 'got to go straight ahead' sounds like something else? it definitely doesn't sound like 'straight', though.

    General Commenti thought they said 'steel', as in the verb to prepare yourself for coping... that kinda thing. that seems to make the most sense to me within the context of the song, anyway. either that or 'still', as in 'still going ahead', which would also make sense, but i'm leaning toward the former.

    as for what i think the song means, i think it's about someone having been hurt or losing someone in whatever way (romantic relationship or friendship ending) and trying to move on, even though it's difficult and/or seems impossible.

    Memorywell, it says in the booklet, "you got to go steal ahead",

    but to me it will always be 'you got to go steal a hen'. :)

    Lyric CorrectionSubtle difference, but it's probably "steel" instead of "steal." Go steel ahead.
