"The Rumour" as written by Josh Franceschi, Chris Miller, Max Helyer, Matt Barnes and Dan / Flint....
Well I am the cancer running through your veins
I am the sweat dripping down the side of your face
I am the pain in the back of your legs, it makes you fall to you knees it makes you believe
And I am the headline, that's going to make front page news
I am that fashion you're all into.
We had to try something different
We had to do something new
We had to make some heads turn
We had to put this to you

I am the rumour on everyone's lips
I am the curse on your girlfriends hips.
We are the different so we'll make a start
Tell all your friends, oh sound the alarm.

I am that feeling, that you've done something wrong.
I am that friend, who knew all along.
We say we have our best friends yet we stab them in the back.
We try to show some love and, it's a skill that we lack.
I've had it with this crowd and I am done with this town.
I've had enough of these shows, it's over with you now.

Hold your hands in, into the air
Hold your hands up as if you care

Oh hold on

Behind your back they talk about you all the time
Behind your back they spread some shit and some lies

    General CommentAwesome song.
    You seem to have got the lyrics correct.. only thing (if I was to be really picky.. which I am..) it's The Rumour, not The Rumor. Remember they're from the UK.

    General CommentYou me @ six are proper good (:
    This song is self-explanatory, its pretty much about hearing rumours about themselves & whatnot.
    The last two lines (screaming) says it all really.

    General CommentI love these guys! And they're so young! I really hope they do well... Only I hope they make it big non-mainstream-ly... You know? Cos fame and fortune ruins bands. Not always ( My Chem have been GREAT, even though they're now MASSIVE, but FOB etc... Eerrrr...)

    But yeah. Great song. I just can't get over how young they are. They're sorta like, only a year or two older than me! That's so awesome. I hope they come to Australia. I think they'd be well recieved. Aussies love music too! But bands always goes to America and (obviously) the UK and Europe before they hit us... It's so sad.

    So if you know these boys, or whatever, tell them to come to Australia!! They're awesome!
