ANDY BELL lyrics - I Don't Like

ANDY BELL
"I Don't Like"
(Ashton / Frost)

Hurtle down the toll-bridge on a stolen bike
The rain in our eyes blurs the city lights
This is fuel-injected speed in the stillness of the night
It's the going home that I don't like

The pillion girls are hanging on for life
It's another of those vodka and burn-up nights
Excitement is two wheels, a valentine rose in the windshield
It's the brutal way she treats me that I don't like

And I don't like
When she sticks up two fingers and she tells me where to go
And I don't like
My bedsit life watching TV in the cold
And I don't like
The bitching texts sent to my mobile phone
But I don't like
My out of office hours being spent alone

She all pissed up and revved up on her stolen bike
A leatherette leather-pet merging with the night
Her Adonis pretensions, she smells of Brut
She gave some chicken a wristy
Then sent him home by Tube

She once dreamt of going to Memphis, a guitar on her back
But she never played a damn note - it was a talent she lacked
Now track-mark scarred she's banged against a car-lot wall
Screaming like a fucked fox how she's a rock 'n' roll whore.

And I don't like
When she sticks up two fingers and she tells me where to go
And I don't like
My bedsit life watching TV in the cold
But I don't like
The demeaning texts sent to my mobile phone
But I don't like
My out of office hours being spent alone

The brutal way you're treated you hand to me straight back
Seems like your best defence is a senseless attack
On the man who really loved you not too many years ago
But who is creeping out the backdoor before we come to blows

'Cause I'm the pillion passenger hanging on for life
To the wreck of never ending love - an unkind lie
And though you beg forgiveness shrieking out of tune
I've found a kind of sanctuary in a cheap motel room

I hurtle through the crossroads on a stolen bike
The rain in my eyes blurs the city lights
This is fuel-injected speed in the stillness of the night
A head-on collision's what I'd really like

A head-on collision's what I'd really like
A head-on collision's what I'd really like
Ride me out of this excuse for life
