LYRICS – the We Died Laughing single

We Died Laughing
A character sketch of raising hell, complete with regrets

We ran around town making enemies, but we died laughing
Now everyone I know is allergic to me, but we died laughing
In a way this had to happen, and better now than never
Now I hope I don’t maintain this reputation forever

It bruises my heart to the nth degree, but we died laughing

Oh, it’s a new kind of tension
I’m not sure what to say
Approach with apprehension
You’re better off just running away

We ran out of town as a remedy, but we died laughing
The trouble we stirred was a joke to me, and I died laughing
In a way this had to happen, and better now than never
Now I hope I don’t maintain this reputation forever

We died laughing

 

Kiss Off, Stranger
Bo Diddley covered by The Strokes if the guitarist was a Dalek

Picture me as an enemy in your mind
Tart me up as a villain – I don’t mind
All I ask is you treat yourself well.

Don’t hold your anger, don’t you hold back
Channel all the animosity that breaks your back
And all I ask is you treat yourself well.

I see you on a busy street
I hate you, and you probably don’t know me
But all I ask is you treat yourself well.

The End
