"Always Happens Like That" as written by Nicholas James David Hodgson, Charles Richard Wilson, Nicholas Baines, James Rix and Andrew White....
Yeah we plugged it in
And we turned it on
And we made it up
As we went along

[Chorus]
And it always happens like that
And it always happens like that

Yeah we made a film
Starring you and me
Just hanging around
Turned out to be a smash

[Chorus]

You can do what you like
But you cant do that
You can say what you want
But you cant say that
You can go anywhere
But you cant go there

That looks like a letter that I don't want to open

And we broke into
The municipal pool
And we turned it in
To a madrigal

[Chorus]

You can do what you like
But you cant do that
You can say what you want
But you cant say that
You can go anywhere
But you cant go there

That looks like a letter that I don't want to open
That looks like a letter that I don't want to open

And we made a vow
To the holy cow
And we set it up
Just to knock it down

[Chorus]

And it will always happen like that
And it will always happen like that

And I always do it like that
And I always do it like that

    General Commenthey!!

    love this song as well :)


    for me, this is all about those kind of love relationships which begin with a huge chemistry, 'forever' hopes, having fun, risking, loving, being a blast, envied and admired, passionate and blah blah yada yada, but then, as time goes on a little further...
    "You can do what you like But you cant do that
    You can say what you want But you cant say that
    You can go anywhere But you cant go there"

    it's like when we open other people's pandora box... it would have been better if we didn't and, god.. if we had only stayed for a short-term thing...

    "That looks like a letter that I don't want to open"

    but you never learn, right?
    "And it will always happen like that

    And I always do it like that"
