"Close Range" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....

I want to scream, I want to shout
I want to know what it's all about
I've seen it before, but not like this
I saw your name, it was on the list

By 4 o'clock (It's gonna change)
You were pretty high (It's gonna change)
Lying on the floor (It's gonna change)
Looking at the sky (It's gonna change)
I remember you (It's gonna change)
When you were a kid (It's gonna change)
It was pretty strange (It's gonna change)
The things you did

You've got to pull yourself together man
You've got to get back on your feet again
How can I ever make you understand ?
You've got the world right in your hand

No cold heart could turn away
And not be moved by what I saw today:
There on the floor, thirty years or more
He doesn't care, he just wants to score

By 4 o'clock (It's gonna change)
You were pretty high (It's gonna change)
Lying on the floor (It's gonna change)
Looking at the sky (It's gonna change)
I remember you (It's gonna change)
When you were a kid (It's gonna change)
It was pretty strange (It's gonna change)
The things you did

You've got to pull yourself together man
You've got to get back on your feet again
How can I ever make you understand ?
You've got the world right in your hand

You've got to pull yourself together man
You've got to get back on your feet again
How can I ever make you understand ?
You've got the world right in your hand

Yet it only seems just like yesterday
We used to run and hide
Remember in the park where we used to play
The grass looked ten foot high

You've got to pull yourself together man
You've got to get back on your feet again
How can I ever make you understand ?
You've got the world right in your hand

You've got to pull yourself together man
You've got to get back on your feet again
How can I ever make you understand ?
You've got the world right in your hand

    General CommentIt's a song to a childhood friend, and the story of how they both have changed so much over the years. Now, his friend is pretty wild going to parties and wanting to score. He tells his friend to get his act together because he feels his friend isn't realizing all the potential he actually has and is just throwing away his life. He reminds him of their younger days when everything was really great to help him to pull his life back together.
