Song Lyrics Posts

I have a bit of a project to do some singing. Getting the lyrics together when I feel like I've got a little rig happening on the computer, and will soon start recording more stuff. So soon I will have the lyrics of the songs that I plan to do as posts. I'll try to include a place where you can buy the song.

Unsent Letter
Machine Gun Fellatio

I try to talk to you
And can't get past the weather
The friend I thought I knew
Found somethin' somewhere better
So I'm hangin' on your line
Thought we could speak together
Don't know what it is with you
You seem gone forever

I'm spending all my time
Driving 'round, faking clever
With a girl who seem alright
And another one who's better
I don't know if I lied
When I said we're not together
But I tried to talk to you
And somehow you seem gone...

I know what could've been
Try not to think about it
Found it hard to live with this
Longed to live without it
My dreams have caught me out
I find myself surrounded
By the odds of our own ends
Enough said about it

I'm spending all my time
Driving 'round, faking clever
With a girl who seem alright
And another one who's better
I don't know if I lied
When I said we're not together
But I tried to talk to you
And somehow you seem gone...

I've given up some things
I guess that doesn't matter
Started other things
I guess that doesn't matter
I finally wrote your song
Another unsent letter
In a pile addressed to you
Care of something somewhere better

I'm spending all my time
Driving 'round, faking clever
With a girl who seem alright
And another one who's better
I don't know if I lied
When I said we're not together
But I tried to talk to you
And somehow you seem gone...

I'm spending all my time
Driving 'round, faking clever
With a girl who seem alright
And another one who's better
I don't know if I lied
When I said that I'm together
But I tried to talk to you
And somehow you seem gone forever
Yeah, I tried to talk to you
And somehow you seem gone forever
Yeah, I tried to talk to you
Somehow you seem gone...

(I tried to find a link so people could buy it, but couldn't. Dear Music Industry - while pirating is easier than buying, you will fail.)

 I found a way to buy it! Hooray!

For a band that built a reputation on basically being crass, debauched and sensationalist in their live shows, MGF could write decent tunes when they wanted to. Paging Mr Strike was a pretty handy album IMO.

An I think unsent letter is one of the most heartfelt, expressive songs I've heard in a decade.
