I didn't want to say out loud
in case it came untrue
but I now know why I'm on this earth
to try to be with you
oh can't you tell I'm different now
by the music that I play
the songs I thought were soppy before
sound wonderful today
alright, alright
it's the music that I love
alright, alright
it's the music that I love

she looks like Julie Christie
and she's blotted out my past
she had it all laid out for me
I never stood a chance
we took the essence of Felt and Vic Godard
and we blasted into space
and then we showered down on everyone
the whole soppy human race

alright, alright
it's the music that I love
alright, alright
it's the music that I love

I'm lying in the bed
I'm lying in the bed
I'm holding on to you
holding on to you
I'm supposed to be meeting little Jim
but why would I be any happier out there than I am in here, in here

I've wanted to say this for so long
but I haven't had the nerve
I realise now what I've been missing
you looked like Julie Christie when I met you
I wanted to laugh out loud
oh can't you tell I'm different now
I'm smiling in the crowd

alright, alright
it's the music that I love
alright, alright
it's the music that I love
alright, alright
it's the music that I love
alright
alright, alright
it's the music that I love
