Wiki on Amy Mcdonald

This Is The Life

Oh the wind whistles down
The cold dark street tonight
And the people they were dancing to the music vibe
And the boys chase the girls with the curls in their hair
While the shy tormented youth sit way over there
And the songs they get louder
Each one better than before

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

So your heading down the road in your taxi for four
And you’re waiting outside Jimmy’s front door
But nobody’s in and nobody’s home ’til four
So you’re sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew
And where you’re gonna go and where you’re gonna sleep tonight

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?

 

Mr Rock & Roll

So called Mr Rock And Roll
Is dancing on his own again
Talking on his phone again
To someone who tells him that his balance is low
He’s got no where to go
He’s on his own again

Rock chick of the century
Is acting like she used to be
Dancing like there’s no one there
Before she never seemed to care
Now she wouldn’t dare
It’s so rock and roll to be alone

And they’ll meet one day
Far away
And say “I wish I was something more”
And they’ll meet one day
Far away
And say ” I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before”

Mrs Black and White
She’s never seen a shade of grey
Always something on her mind
Every single day
But now she’s lost her way
And where does she go from here

Mr Multicultural
Sees all that one can see
He’s living proof of someone
Very different to me
But now he wants to be free
Free so he can see

And they’ll meet one day
Far away
And say “I wish I was something more”
And they’ll meet one day
Far away
And say “I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before”

He says “I wish I knew you, I wish I met you
When time was still on my side”
She’ll say ” I wish I knew you, I wish I loved you
Before I was his bride”

And so they must depart
Too many more are broken hearts
But I’ve seen that all before
In TV, books and film and more
And there’s a happy ending
Every single day

And they’ll meet one day
Far away
And say “I wish I was something more”
And they’ll meet one day
Far away
And say “I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before”

 

Amy MacDonald – Run


Will you tell me when the lights are fading
Cos I can’t see, I can’t see no more
Will you tell me when the song stops playing
Cos I can’t hear, I can’t hear no more

She said I don’t know what you’re living for
She said I don’t know what you’re living for at all
He said I don’t know what you’re living for
He said I don’t know what you’re living for at all

But I will run until my feet no longer run no more
And I will kiss until my lips no longer feel no more
And I will love until my heart it aches
And I will love until my heart it breaks
And I will love until there’s nothing more to live for

Will you tell me when the fighting’s over
Cos I can’t take, I can’t take no more
Will you tell me when the day is done
Cos I can’t run, I can’t run no more

She said I don’t know what you did it for
She said I don’t know what you did it for at all
He said I don’t know what you did it for
He said I don’t know what you did it for at all

But I will run until my feet no longer run no more
And I will kiss until my lips no longer feel no more
And I will love until my heart it aches
And I will love until my heart it breaks
And I will love until there’s nothing more to live for

And I will love until my heart it aches
And I will love until my heart it breaks
And I will love until there’s nothing more to live for

 

Amy Macdonald – Wish For Something More

Oh the sun is shining far too bright
For it to still be night
Oh the air feels so cold
So cold and old
How can it be light
Oh let’s take a walk outside
See the world through each other’s eyes
I wish I was your only one
I think you’re beautiful but your hair is a mess
And your shoes are untied, but that’s what I love best

And I, I wish I was the one
You lonely, lonely son
And you looked at me that way
I wish for long lingering glances
Fairytale romances every single day
And you look at me and say
I’m your best friend every day
But I wish for something, wish for something more
Oh, I love you like a friend but let’s not pretend
How I wish for something, wish for something more

Oh the grass is so green
But I can’t see anything, past your eyes
I’m fixated on your smile
Your cherry lips make life worthwhile
I’m thinking these things
What I’m trying to say is
Life gets in my way
Every single day

And I, I wish I was the one
You lonely, lonely son
And you looked at me that way
I wish for long lingering glances
Fairytale romances every single day
And you look at me and say
I’m your best friend every day
But I wish for something, wish for something more
Oh, I love you like a friend but let’s not pretend
How I wish for something, wish for something more

Now the sun is fading and the rain is coming down
And I’m looking at your face but your looking at the ground
I see diamonds in your dreams I see pearls around your neck
I see everything that’s beautiful, everything that’s beautiful

I wish I was the one
You lonely, lonely son
And you looked at me that way
I wish for long lingering glances
Fairytale romances every single day
And you look at me and say
I’m your best friend every day
But I wish for something, wish for something more
Oh, I love you like a friend but let’s not pretend
How I wish for something, wish for something more

 

‘Poison Prince’ Amy Macdonald

A poetic genius genius,
Its something I don’t see,
Why would a genius be trippin on me?

And there’s looking and another ,
Why he can’t see is that I’m looking through his eyes,
So many lies behind his eyes.
N tell me stories from your past,
And sing me songs you wrote before.

I tell you this my Poison Prince,
You’ll soon be knocking on Heaven’s door.

Some kind of Poison Prince,
With your eyes in a daze.
Some kind of Poison Prince,
Your life is like a maze.

And what we all want and what we all crave,
Is an upbeat song,
So we can dance the night away.

Who said life was easy,
Who said life was fair,
Who said nobody gived a damn,
And nobody even cared.

The way you’re acting now,
Like you left that all behind.
You’ve given up,
You’ve given in,
And I’m a sucker of that kind.

Some kind of Poison Prince,
With your eyes in a daze.
Some kind of Poison Prince,
Your life is like a maze.

And what we all want and what we all crave,
Is an upbeat song ,
So we can dance the night away.

Some kind of Poison Prince,
With your eyes in a daze.
Some kind of Poison Prince,
Your life is like a maze.

And what we all want and what we all crave,
Is an upbeat song ,
So we can dance the night away.
 

Lets Start A Band – Amy Macdonald

Put a ribbon round my neck and call me a libertine
I will sing you songs of dreams I used to dream
I will sail away on seas of silver and gold
Until I reach my home
Give me a guitar and I’ll be your troubadour
Your strolling minstrel 12th century door to door
I don’t know anymore, if that feeling is past will it last
Oh, how can you be sure?

And how do I know if you’re feeling the same as me?
And how do I know if that’s the only place you want to be?

Give me a stage and I’ll be your rock and roll queen
Your 20th century cover of a magazine
Rolling Stone here I come, watch out everyone, I’m singing
I’m singing my song
Give me a festival and I’ll be your Glastonbury star
The lights are shining everyone knows who you are
Singing songs about dreams about hopes about schemes
Ooooh, they just came true

And how do I know if you’re feeling the same as me?
And how do I know if that’s the only place you want to be?
And how do I know if you’re feeling the same as me?
And how do I know if that’s the only place you want to be?

And if you want it too, then there’s nothing left to do:
Let’s start a band
Let’s start a band
Let’s start a band
Let’s start a band

And if you want it too, then there’s nothing left to do:
Let’s start a band
Let’s start a band
Let’s start a band
Let’s start a band

And if you want it too, then there’s nothing left to do:
Let’s start a band
Let’s start a band
Let’s start a band
Let’s start a band

And if you want it too, then there’s nothing left to do.

Amy Macdonald – Youth Of Today


Maybe, if you were some spear-headed guy,
I would listen to what you have to say,
But your just some incapable figure thinking your bigger than me,
But your not,
Yeah, you don’t know a thing about the youth of today,
Stating your opinion making it ring in my head all day.

And you say,
My children weren’t the same,
My children’s children they’re the ones to blame,
And you say,
In my day we were better behaved,
But it’s not your day, no more.

And we are the youth of today,
Change your hair in every way,
And we are the youth of today,
We’ll say what we want to say,
And we are the youth of today,
Don’t care what you have to say at all.

And maybe if you had a true point of view I would listen to you,
But its just your one sided opinions getting in my way,
And you dont no a single thing about the youth of today.
Stating your opinion,
And making it ring in my head all day,

And you say,
My children weren’t the same,
My children’s children they’re the ones to blame,
And you say,
In my day we were better behaved,
But it’s not your day, no more.

We are the youth of today,
Change your hair in every way,
We are the youth of today,
We’ll say what we want to say,
And we are the youth of today,
Don’t care what you have to say at all.

And you say,
My children weren’t the same,
My children’s children they’re the ones to blame,
And you say,
In my day we were better behaved,
But it’s not your day, no more.

We are the youth of today,
Change your hair in every way,
We are the youth of today,
We’ll say what we want to say,
And we are the youth of today,
Don’t care what you have to say at all

L.A.

Oh here’s a story bout a boy named J.
Nothing he did would ever get in my way
but there’s still a long, long way to go.
I’ve only ever seen his face on film,
I’ve only ever heard the lines he’d say
But still they won’t, get in my way.

I’m always told to be the dreamer kind
wake up one morning and your dreams are life
never let them, bring me down
never let them, tear me down.
I always thought that I would follow you.
Every place and everything you do
but I’m happy to be by myself,
I don’t need no-one else

He’s never ever seen my face before
I’m trying hard cos this I can’t ignore
but there’s still a long, long way to go.

Chorus

All my dreams are built around your face, and this place
All the times I’m starring at the sun, you’re the one.
All my dreams are built around your face, and this place
All the times I’m starring at the sun, you’re the one.

Chorus

Amy Macdonald – Footballers Wife

Oh, Mr James Dean, he don’t
belong to anything.
Oh he left before they could get him,
With their ways, their wicked ways.
Oh Marilyn Monroe, where did you go?
I didn’t hear all your stories
I didn’t see all your glory.

But the footballer’s wife tells her troubles and strife
I just don’t care in the end who is she to pretend
That she’s one of them
I don’t think so.
And the girl from that show
yes the one we all know
she thinks she’s some kinda star, yes you know who you are.
I don’t think so. I don’t think so.

Oh ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire
Won’t you dance for me cos I just don’t care
What’s going on today, I think there’s something more, something more.
And I’m gone with the wind like they were before.
But I’m believing myself I think there’s something more
There must be something more, I think there’s something more, something more.

Chorus

Oh  I don’t believe in the telling of your stories
throughout your life, there’s just something unappealing it don’t catch my eye
it don’t catch my eye.
Oh I don’t believe in the selling of your glories before you leave this life
there’s so much more to see, I don’t believe this is how the world should be.

Chorus

This Much Is True – Amy Macdonald

Amy Macdonald – Wish For Something More

Amy Macdonald – Rock Bottom

Barrowland Ballroom – Amy Macdonald

Oh the lights outside they’re as bright as the sun
They’re much brighter than anyone.
Oh the girls in the Queue yes they’re waiting for you 
Well they’re waiting for their song to be sung.

And when the night turns to day and all the people go away
It’s not the same, tell me who’s to blame?
And when the stars shine so bright on the cold December night
I wish that I was on that stage

Oh won’t you take a ride with me
through the Barrowland history
and I’ll sing you a song or two
People they may stop and stare but baby I, I just don’t care it’s
it’s only me and you.
And the drink and dance and drugs you know
it’s all part of the show we go to
Maybe I should tell you.
That people they may stop and stare but baby I, I just don’t care
tonight, it’s only me and you.

Oh nothing beats the feeling of the high Barrowland ceiling
When the band starts to play.
Won’t you buy me a drink and I’ll tell her what I think
If she gets in my way

And when the night turns to day and all the people go away
It’s not the same, tell me who’s to blame?
And when the stars shine so bright on the cold December night
I wish that I was on that stage

Chorus

And when the night turns to day
And the lights they fade away
I wish that life and love would pass me by
And when the band stops a song because there’s something going on
Well there is magic in the air I swear.
And I wish that I saw Bowie, playing on that stage
I wish that I saw something, to make me come of age.

Chorus

Amy Macdonald – Somebody New

I never knew you before
I never seen that sweet smile
Or those eyes that dazzled from about a mile away
I never smelt that sweet scent
That followed you everywhere you went
Or even had the chance to call you mine

Now I look back in regret
At all the missed hours I spent
Watching my life just pass me by
Now your with somebody new
and there’s nothing I can do
Just sit back and watch you smile.

It’s like everywhere I go
I know your always gonna be there
But you don’t see me there
As I try to walk by you all you ever seem to do
Is move away from there

Amy McDonald – Road to home

Oh the leaves are falling from the trees
And the snow is coming, don’t you know?
But I’ll still remember which way to go
I’m on the road, the road to home

Oh the sound is fading in my ears
And I can’t believe I’ve lasted all these years
But I’ll still remember which way to go
I’m on the road, the road to home

Oh the light is fading all the time
And this life I’m in it seems to pass me by
But I’ll still remember which way to go
I’m on the road, the road to home

Now I must say good bye
Keep telling myself “now don’t you cry”
But I’m here where I belong
I’ll see you soon, it won’t be long
I’ll see you soon, it won’t be long
I’ll see you soon, it won’t be long

Mr. Brightside

Coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss
It was only a kiss

Now I’m falling asleep
And she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke
And she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head

But she’s touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Let me go
I just can’t look
It’s killing me
And taking control

Jealousy
Turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it’s just the price I paid
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr. Brightside

Coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss
It was only a kiss

Now I’m falling asleep
And she’s calling a cab
While he’s having a smoke
And she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head

But she’s touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Let me go
‘Cause I just can’t look
It’s killing me
And taking control

Jealousy
Turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it’s just the price I paid
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr. Brightside.

I never
I never
I never
I never
