"Rather Be" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
There's no evil introductions
No dark corridors of fame
You won't find your fortune
You might find some pain

I wanna lie, lie together
Feels like our last embrace
In a world full of confusion
Yeah the human race

But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?

Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
I don't wanna let you go
Sometimes these feelings hit me, I start to cry
'Cause I won't ever let you go

Oh my my my my we're multiplying
Always living under some cloud
Always on the eve of destruction
Make you wanna scream out loud
And as I watched the birds soar
Mighty lies and wishes spun
Oh mama mama why I'm still crying
Oh now the day is come

'Cause I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?

Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
I don't wanna let you go
Sometimes these feelings hit me, I start to cry
'Cause I won't ever let you go

But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?
But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
Is there anywhere better than here?
You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
Is there anywhere better than here?

Sometimes this feeling hits me
Sometimes this feelings hit me
These feelings are oh so rare

    General CommentAmazing song or what?! Sounds like a lovesong on the surface, but am i the only one drawing parallels with relations between the band? They've just got back together, and despite the often sketchy relations between Ashcroft and McCabe, ("Always living under some cloud, Always on the eve of destruction...") being a part of The Verve, and making awesome music like this is what he really wants...
