"Supreme" as written by Dino Fekaris, Frederick J. Perren, Francois Paul Leon De Roubaix, Robert Peter Williams and Guy Antony Chambers....
Oh it seemed forever stopped today
All the lonely hearts in London
Caught a plane and flew away
And all the best women are married
All the handsome men are gay
You feel deprived

Yeah are you questioning your size?
Is there a tumour in your humour,
Are there bags under your eyes?
Do you leave dents where you sit,
Are you getting on a bit?
Will you survive
You must survive

When there's no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

Oh what are you really looking for?
Another partner in your life to
abuse and to adore?
Is it lovey dovey stuff,
Do you need a bit of rough?
Get on your knees

Yeah turn down the love songs that you hear
'Cause you can't avoid the sentiment
That echoes in your ear
Saying love will stop the pain
Saying love will kill the fear
Do you believe
You must believe
When there's no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

I spy with my little eye
Something beginning with (ah)
Got my back up
And now she's screaming
So I've got to turn the track up
Sit back and watch the royalties stack up
I know this girl she likes to switch teams
And I'm a fiend but I'm living for a love supreme

When there's no love in town
This new century keeps bringing you down
All the places you have been
Trying to find a love supreme
A love supreme

Come and live a love supreme
Don't let it get you down
Everybody lives for love

Come and live a love supreme
Don't let it get you down
Everybody lives for love

    General CommentI think this song is about everyone's quest for love, and when you don't have love, it just slaps you in the face all the time. Like when you turn on the radio and all you hear are love songs. Robbie Williams is a great songwriter...I think his lyrics have just the right mix of sarcasm and heartfelt sentiment. Never too too cheezy or sappy.

    General CommentUndoubtedly one of the best songs Robbie has ever made. Might not be that famous and all, but it's truely genius. My second favourite song after Love Somebody... The kind of 'sad saracasm' if I could say... It's just Robbie Williams' mark in all his songs, it makes them so unique and... so incredibly good in their meanings. So thoughtful.

    General CommentI love this song so much, its lyrics are so true. It's like saying, what's wrong with me that in this new millenium I can't find someone who really cares for me?...specially when you are getting closer to the "quarter life crisis", it really scares you so much, you feel touched by the music played on the radio, you get your first wrinkles and you are "getting on a bit"...I can truly relate to this one, I've been there for so long... Just another sample of what Mr. Williams is able to do :p

    General CommentI never had any interest in Robbie Williams until I heard this song and the lyrics. I never knew what a smart song writer RW`s could be!

    IMO this is one of the best and true songs in the world. I mean surely every single guy out there can relate to Robbie on this one :-)

    General CommentHas anybody noticed that the music in just one part of this song sounds exactly like the music from Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive"?

    General CommentInterestingly I am on the Robbie williams board to completely slaughter Rudebox when I mentioned 2 songs I can stand by him. This is one. And like Foxwing it is because of the melodic bridge in the song as opposed to Robbies great writing (wtf? is that a joke?) and it does sound similar to I will survive yes, but isn't it the tune from Rocky?
