Paolo Nutini Last Request

Slow down, lie down
Remember it’s just you and me
Don’t sell out, bow out
Remember how this used to be
I just want you to know something, is that alright?
Baby let’s get closer, tonight

[chorus]
Grant my last request and just let me hold you, don’t shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we’re going nowhere
But one last time let’s go there
Lay down beside me, ohhh

I’ve found that I’m bound to wander down that long way road, ohhh
And I realise all about your lies,
But I’m no wiser than the fool that I was before.
I just want you to know something, is that alright?
Baby let’s get closer, tonight.

[chorus]
Grant my last request and just let me hold you, don’t shrug your shoulders
Lay down beside me
Sure I can accept that we’re going nowhere

Paolo Nutini – These Streets – Acoustic

Cross the border,
Into the big bad world
Where it takes you ’bout an hour
Just to cross the road
Just to stumble across another poor old soul from
The dreary old lanes to the high-street madness
Eye fight with my brain to believe my eyes
And it’s harder than you think
To believe this sadness
That creeps up my spine
And haunts me through the night
And life is good and the girls are gorgeous
Suddenly the air smells much greener now
And I’m wondering ’round
With a half pack of cigarettes
Searching for the change that I’ve lost somehow

These streets have too many names for me
I’m used to Glenfield road and spending my time down in Orchy
I’ll get used to this eventually
I know, I know

Where’d the days go? When all we did was play
And the stress that we were under wasn’t stress at all
Just a run and a jump into a harmless fall from
Walking by a high-rise to a landmark square
You see millions of people with millions of cares
And I struggle to the train to make my way home
I look at the people as they sit there alone

Life is good, and the sun is shining
Everybody flirts to their ideal place
And the children all smile as a boat shuffled by them
Trying to pretend that they’ve got some space

These streets have too many names for me
I’m used to Glenfield road and spending my time down in Orchy
I’ll get used to this eventually
I know, I know

These streets have too many names for me
I’m used to Glenfield road and spending my time down in Orchy
I’ll get used to this eventually
I know, I know

Life is good, and the girls are gorgeous
Suddenly the air smells much greener now
And I’m wondering ’round
With a half pack of cigarettes
Searching for the change that I’ve lost somehow

These streets have too many names for me
I’m used to Glenfield road and spending my time down in Orchy
I’ll get used to this eventually
I know, I know

These streets have too many names for me
I’m used to Glenfield road and spending my time down in our Orchy
I’ll get used to this eventually
I know, I know
Paolo Nutini – Autumn Leaves


Autumn leaves under frozen soles,
Hungry hands turning soft and old,
My hero cried as we stood out their in the cold,
Like these autumn leaves I don’t have nothing to hold.

Handsome smiles wearing handsome shoes,
Too young to say, though I swear he knew,
And i hear him singing while he sits there in his chair,
Now these autumn leaves float around everywhere.

And I look at you, and I see me,
Making noise so restlessly,
But now it’s quiet and I can hear you saying,
‘My little fish dont cry, my little fish dont cry.’

Autumn leaves how faded now,
that smile that i’ve lost, well i’ve found some how,
Because you still live on in my fathers eyes,
These autumn leaves, oh these autumn leaves, oh these autumn leaves are yours tonight.

mmmmmmm….

Paolo Nutini “Jenny Dont Be Hasty” Live

You said you’d marry me if I was 23
But I’m one that you can’t see if I’m only 18
Tell me who made these rules
Obviously not you
Who are you answering to?

Oh, Jenny don’t be hasty
No, don’t treat me like a baby
Let me take you where you’ll let me
Because leaving just upsets me

I’ll be around again to see the other men
They’re more adequate in the age department
I did not think you cared.
There’d be no problems here
But now you’re looking at me like you’re disgusted
Then I’m definitely waiting for you to smile and change your mind
Then I’ll say I’m sorry and I’ll wrap my arms ’round your body
I really hope that you forgive in a hurry
And don’t just ask me to leave

Oh, Jenny don’t be hasty
Don’t treat me like a baby
Let me take you where you’ll let me
Because leaving just upsets me

Oh, Jenny you are crazy!
First I’m perfect, then I’m lazy
And I was calling you my baby
Now it sounds like you just left me.
And it kills me!

Paolo Nutini – Still Crazy

Shut me out completely,
That would not be such a sin.
Lock up every entry,
Make sure that there’s no way for me to get in
Won’t try to pry them open,
Never mind knock upon your doors.
Truth is that there’s no reason for me to even see your face anymore.

But I need you ears and I need them now I’ve got something to say,
I’m not here today to win you back just to remind you that.

Sure as the rain starts to fall,
Yes I’ll always remember you dear.
And though we don’t talk anymore.
I was crazy for you; yes I was crazy for you, that’s for sure.

Nothings ever easy, I think we both know that it’s true.
I was convinced you loved me, and I was pretty sure that I loved you too,
When was our final moment whats your favourite might have beens.
When was my fatal error that changed the way you thought of me ever since.

Cos I made you smile and I made you laugh, i made nice gestures and surprised you enough?
But I made you come, but I made you cry,
I wish this was true but I’m not gonna lie.

So sure as the rain starts to fall,
Yes I’ll always remember you close
And though we don’t touch anymore.
I was crazy for you; I’m still crazy for you, that’s for sure.
Still crazy for you, still crazy for you, still crazy for you

Paolo Nutini – Million Faces (live, UK, June 2006)

Oh the phone you know it never stops, it’s the last thing I hear at night
and the first thing in the morning.
and as I let it start to burn my head, you slowly creep into bed
and i’m done talking
you say you know how i’m feeling, I just need to try to settle down

Oh a million faces pass my way
Oh they’re all the same, nothing seems to change anytime I look around
Oh who knows just what the future holds
all I want to know is if it’s with you

Tired as hell and falling up the stairs, filled with a thousand cares as you walk out from the bedroom
though it feels like all my fire has gone, you just turn me on
can’t believe how much I want you
you say you know how i’m feeling, I just need to try to settle down

Oh a million faces pass my way
Oh they’re all the same, nothing seems to change anytime I look around
Oh who knows just what the future holds
all I want to know is if it’s with you

we’re distracted by the hard times, and the troubles that we make
let us throw them in the ocean, let it wash our cares away
oh the phone you know it never stops, it’s the last thing I hear at night
and the first thing in the morning

Oh a million faces pass my way
Oh they’re all the same, nothing seems to change anytime I look around
Oh who knows just what the future holds
all I want to know is if it’s with you

we’re distracted by the hard times, and the troubles that we make
let us throw them in the ocean, let it wash our cares away
oh the phone you know it never stops, it’s the last thing I hear at night
and the first thing in the morning

let it wash our cares away, let it wash our cares away…
