Verse 1: The whiskey bottle’s empty My life’s on the floor I’m not talking To the girl from the night before I haven’t figured out What I said that was so wrong But you know what I’m like And I’ll still get along Chorus: You can’t make me forget I’m not dead yet You can’t make me forget You can’t make me forget I’m not dead yet You can’t make me forget Verse 2: She took a pop at me Just to prove a point But things didn’t turn out Quite the way she thought Please don’t cry Cos I’ll just and laugh I know that sounds bad But hey I’m just like that.

Verse 1: Please say you’ll be mine for the summer I don’t wanna find another To spend my money on You know right where I am Please let me know where I stand Don’t make my night so long Chorus: Be my Yoko Ono Be my Yoko Ono Be my Yoko Ono Be my Yoko Ono Verse 2: You’re another world away But I see you everyday But it’s just not right So are you gonna be mine I would’ve liked to know tonight But if you’re busy I guess it’s alright.

Verse 1: Pete said “I want to get her in for free For dangerous liaisons between her and me Cos I know that she’ll want to know When I get her in for free to see Zane Lowe Cos tonight, of all nights I’m gonna get my pie” Chorus: Pete’s potential pie Pete’s potential pie If it goes how he plans it to go She’ll be screaming “Who the fuck is Zane Lowe?” Pete’s potential pie Verse 2: But she went and bought a ticket for the show that night Played the best gig of our life, folks kicking left and right Pete still though she’d want to know Even though she paid in to see Zane Lowe Cos tonight, of all nights Pete was gonna get his pie Verse 3: Some hours later it reached the morning light Out the back of Subside, Pete showed with no signs of pie Turned out she didn’t care to know After paying in to see Zane Lowe Tonight of all nights Pete didn’t get his pie.

Véarsa 1: Céard tá micheart le sin B’fhéidir go bhfaighidh mé amach Bealach go bhfanfaidh tú Má fhágaim arís B’fhéidir go mbeadh muid le chéile ar aon nós Curfá Níl ciall le fágáil anois Táim díreach chun siúl amach Ní don chéad uair D’iarr tú orm fanacht Ach níor tháining tú ar bhealach Mar sin táim chun siúl arís Véarsa 2: Chroch tú mé amach chun triomú Nior cheistigh mé cén fáth Ní raibheas ag iarraidh fáil amach Bhí an cheart agat fagáil Fiú uaimse Céard atá ar eolas agam Curfá deireanach: Níl ciall le fágáil anois Tá tú díreach chun siúl amach Ní don chéad uair D’iarr mé ort fanacht Ach níor tháining mé ar bhealach Mar sin tá tú chun siúl arís.

Verse 1: I won’t get too attached to you Cos I know what I’m gonna do You’re sitting there all pretty in pink You don’t sing, you don’t dance, you don’t speak you don’t think Chorus: I’m gonna break you I’m gonna break you down I’m gonna break you I’m gonna smash you to the ground Verse 2: You can’t do anything in tune Just as well I’ll be rid of you soon You’re sitting there all pretty in pink You don’t sing, you don’t dance, you don’t speak you don’t think.

Verse 1: You follow me You’re taking my mind away You want to see What I did today You follow me round All over town Am I in love? I would if I could Bridge: Am I a memory? Of what you did to me Am I a memory? Look what you do to me Chorus: Do you feel heavier than heaven? Do you feel light as a feather? Do you feel heavier than heaven? D’you think you know how to make it all better? Verse 2: I wish you would Send me that letter I think it could Make it all better I’m running out Of things that inspire me I’ll scream and shout When I’m retiring.
7.
Verse 1: How the hell can I stay awake? When I’ve been sitting here all day What am I supposed to say? When the words I need are gone away. Chorus: I wandered round and round I wandered up and down I wandered lonely as a cloud As you do when there’s no one around Verse 2: I really wish you the best of luck As you try to make me give a fuck Not all the words in any book Could describe the way we look Verse 3: It’s the kids that I pity the most Just waiting on you to become a ghost They can’t realise that their lives are shit All because you’re a selfish bitch.
8.
Verse 1: Fade away, back to grey Learn to live another day You’re falling down to the floor Reaching out for something more You want it all, but can’t say Won’t you lead me astray? All I need is something new Looking out, just for you Chorus: But you can’t fight through the rain And I will never explain That you can’t fight through the rain And nothing will hide my disdain, for you Verse 2: Winning back what you stole Fighting to regain control Skidding my way round the bends Finding ways to make new friends Fade away, back to grey Live to fight another day Holding on for something real Learning again how to feel Final chorus: But you can’t fight through the rain I don’t know what you stand to gain If you try to fight through the pain And you’re drinking all my champagne Trying to steal all my fame But you’re fighting a losing game Trying to fight your way through the rain I can’t hide my disdain, for you.

Verse 1: I didn’t see you coming back to my place I though ‘I can’t stand the sight of you But I’m far too off my face’ I thought ‘I’m not promising anything my dear’ But why do I always leave with you When I’ve had too much beer? Bridge: Oh, I should know better by now Oh, we both should know so much better by now Chorus: I’m like Batman and I work better alone Don’t wanna have to save your ass And then drag you home I’m like Batman and I work better alone Should be OK so long as you don’t get the number To my batphone Verse 2: I had nothing to say to you so I left before you woke Had to leave early, had to walk home Cos I was flat broke Cheers for the night, I had a good time But I don’t wanna see you ever again Until the next night.

about

In the early days of Nerve Centre, the band was incredibly ambitious and was going to release singles with B-sides. Learning that recording music was both time-consuming and expensive, and actually, it was really difficult to sell the minimum amount of CDs they could order as it was, they never bothered.

The tracks on this album are the intended B-sides for singles from the first album, "...And All I Got Was These..."

They've been available to stream all along, but now, for the first time, they are available for you to own and keep and cherish.
