I WANNA BE ADORED

I DON'T HAVE TO SELL MY SOUL
HE'S ALREADY IN ME
I DON'T NEED TO SELL MY SOUL
HE'S ALREADY IN ME

I WANNA BE ADORED
I WANNA BE ADORED

REPEAT VERSE

REPEAT CHORUS

ADORED
I WANNA BE ADORED

YOU ADORE ME
YOU ADORE ME

I WANNA BE ADORED (x4)

*********************************************************

SHE BANGS THE DRUMS

I CAN FEEL MY EARTH BEGIN TO MOVE
I HEAR MY NEEDLE HIT THE GROOVE
AND SPIRAL THROUGH ANOTHER DAY
I HEAR MY SONG BEGIN TO SAY
KISS ME WHERE THE SUN DON'T SHINE
THE PAST WAS YOURS
BUT THE FUTURE IS MINE
YOU'RE ALL OUT OF TIME

I DON'T FEEL TOO STEADY ON MY FEET
I FEEL HOLLOW I FEEL WEAK
PASSION FRUIT AND HOLY BREAD
FILL MY GUTS AND EASE MY HEAD
THROUGH THE EARLY MORNING SUN
I CAN SEE HER HERE SHE COMES
SHE BANGS THE DRUMS

HAVE YOU SEEN HER
HAVE YOU HEARD
THE WAY SHE PLAYS
THERE ARE NO WORDS
TO DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL
HOW COULD IT EVER COME TO PASS
SHE'LL BE THE FIRST
SHE'LL BE THE LAST
TO DESCRIBE THE WAY I FEEL

CHORUS (x3)

***********************************************************

WATERFALL

CHIMES SING SUNDAY MORN
TODAY'S THE DAY SHE'S SWORN
TO STEAL WHAT SHE NEVER COULD OWN
AND RACE FROM
THIS HOLE SHE CALLS HOME
NOW YOU'RE AT THE WHEEL
TELL ME HOW HOW DOES IT FEEL
SO GOOD TO HAVE EQUALISED
TO LIFT UP THE LIDS OF YOUR EYES
AS THE MILES THEY DISAPPEAR
SEE LAND BEGIN TO CLEAR
FREE FROM THE FILTH AND THE SCUM
THIS AMERICAN SATELLITE'S WON

SHE'LL CARRY ON THROUGH IT ALL
SHE'S A WATERFALL

REPEAT CHORUS

SEE THE STEEPLE PINE
THE HILLS AS OLD AS TIME
SOON TO BE PUT TO THE TEST
TO BE WHIPPED
BY THE WINDS OF THE WEST
STANDS ON SHIFTING SANDS
THE SCALES HELD IN HER HANDS
THE WIND IT JUST WHIPS HER AND WAILS
AND FILLS UP HER BRIGANTINE SAILS

SHE'LL CARRY ON THROUGH IT ALL
SHE'S A WATERFALL

REPEAT CHORUS

*********************************************************

DON'T STOP

DON'T STOP ISN'T IT
FUNNY HOW YOU SHINE
DON'T STOP ISN'T IT
FUNNY HOW YOU SHINE

HERE THE SEASPRAY GIVE
I WAS WITH HER
WE'RE UNDER THE SHIP SO GET ME OVER
NOW THAT WAS ME, LISTEN,
NOW SHE FISHES NOW, LISTEN
THERE WAS NO-ONE OUT THERE WE USE
THERE IS THE NEWS FOR ME, USELESS,
NOW SO MUCH WASTE,
HOW WE'LL BE TEASED

DON'T STOP ISN'T IT
FUNNY HOW YOU SHINE
DON'T STOP ISN'T IT
FUNNY HOW YOU SHINE
WON'T YOU JUST ASK ME?
YOU'RE AN IMBECILE
WHAT'S THE MATTER?
FOR EVERYONE I FEEL PAIN
BLUE SINGER, HE'S PAIN,
JUST A GUITAR
FROM THE TOP
I WAKE, I STEAL, LOOK I FEEL LOOSE
WE'RE ALL HERE NOW WHO'S THE FIRST
HE'S INTO MY HEART
HE MUST BE ONE OF US

DON'T STOP ISN'T IT
FUNNY HOW YOU SHINE
DON'T STOP ISN'T IT
FUNNY HOW YOU SHINE

(SONG FOR MY)
SUGAR SPUN SISTER

HER HAIR SOFT DRIFTED SNOW
DEATH WHITE I'D LIKE TO KNOW
WHY SHE HATES, ALL THAT SHE DOES
AND SHE CALLS ME LITTLE BOY LOST

UNTIL THE SKY TURNS GREEN
THE GRASS IS SEVERAL SHADES OF BLUE
EVERY MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT
TRIPS ON GLUE
UNTIL THE SKY TURNS GREEN
THE SKY IS SEVERAL SHADES OF BLUE
EVERY MEMBER OF PARLIAMNET
TRIPS ON GLUE

IT TAKES ALL THESE THINGS
AND ALL THAT TIME
TILL MY SUGAR SPUN SISTER'S HAPPY
WITH THIS LOVE OF MINE
IT'LL TAKE ALL THESE THINGS AND OH
MUCH MORE

I'VE PAID FOR FIFTEEN OR MORE
BUT MY GUTS CAN'T TAKE MANY MORE
'CAUSE MY HANDS ARE STUCK
TO MY JEANS
AND SHE KNOWS, SHE KNOWS WHAT
THIS MUST MEAN

SHE WAKES UP WITH THE SUN
SHE ASKS ME WHAT IS ALL THE FUSS
AS SHE GAVE ME MORE THAT
SHE THOUGHT SHE SHOULD
SHE WAKES UP WITH THE SUN
I THINK WHAT HAVE I DONE?
AS I GAVE HER MORE THAN
I THOUGHT I WOULD

IT TAKES ALL THESE THINGS
AND ALL THAT TIME
TILL MY SUGAR SPUN SISTER'S HAPPY
WITH THIS LOVE OF MINE
THE CANDYFLOSS GIRL,
THE STICKY FINGERED BOY
OH THAT SISTER OF MINE

*******************************************************

MADE OF STONE

YOUR KNUCKLES WHITEN ON THE WHEEL
THE LAST THING THAT YOUR HANDS
WILL FEEL
YOUR FINAL FLIGHT CAN'T BE DELAYED

NO LAND JUST SKY IT'S SO SERENE
YOUR PINK FAT LIPS LET GO A SCREAM
YOU FRY AND MELT I LOVE THE SCENE

SOMETIMES I FANTASIZE
WHEN THE STREETS ARE COLD
AND LONELY
AND THE CARS THEY BURN BELOW ME
DON'T THESE TIMES FILL YOUR EYES
WHEN THE STREETS ARE COLD
AND LONELY
AND THE CARS THEY BURN BELOW ME
ARE YOU ALL ALONE
IS ANYBODY HOME

I'M STANDING WARM AGAINST THE COLD
NOW THAT THE FLAMES
HAVE TAKEN HOLD
AT LEAST YOU LEFT YOUR LIFE IN STYLE
AND FOR AS FAR AS I CAN SEE

TIN TWISTED GRILLS GRIN BACK AT ME
BAD MONEY DIES I LOVE THE SCENE

CHORUS (x2)

**************************************************************

SHOOT YOU DOWN

YOU KNOW IT
YOU SHOW IT
AND THE TIME HAS COME
TO SHOOT YOU DOWN
WHAT A SOUND
WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
AND IT ALL WORKS OUT

I'D LOVE TO DO IT AND YOU KNOW
YOU'VE ALWAYS
HAD IT COMING

REPEAT (ALL THE ABOVE)

I NEVER WANTED
THE LOVE THAT YOU SHOWED ME
IT STARTED TO CHOKE ME
AND HOW I WISH I'D SAID NO
TOO SLOW
I COULDN'T TAKE THAT
TOO FAST
I WANT YOU TO KNOW

YOU KNOW IT
YOU SHOW IT
BUT I CAN'T BACK DOWN
IT'S FAR TOO LATE
I CAN'T WAIT
NOW THE TIME HAS COME
IT'LL WORK OUT
AND WHEN THIS THING IS DONE
IT'LL LEAVE NO DOUBT
SO WHEN YOU'VE HAD YOUR FUN
WILL YOU ALL WALK OUT?

I'D LOVE TO DO IT AND YOU KNOW
YOU'VE ALWAYS
HAD IT COMING
I'D LOVE TO DO IT AND YOU KNOW
YOU'VE ALWAYS
HAD IT COMING
I'D LOVE TO DO IT AND YOU KNOW
YOU'VE ALWAYS
HAD IT COMING

I HAD HER ON A PROMISE
IMMERSE ME IN YOUR SPLENDOUR
ALL THE PLANS THAT I HAVE MADE

THIS IS THE ONE, THIS IS THE ONE
THIS IS THE ONE
SHE'S WAITED FOR
THIS IS THE ONE, THIS IS THE ONE

THIS IS THE ONE
I'VE WAITED FOR

I'D LIKE TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY
FOR A MONTH OF SUNDAYS
BURN THE TOWN WHERE I WAS BORN
IF ONLY SHE'D BELIEVE ME
BELLONA, BELLADONNA
BURN ME OUT OR BRING ME HOME

CHORUS REPEAT TO END
**********there's something else here any clues??? ******


*********************************************************

AND I CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT
YOUR FACE IT HAS NO PLACE
NO ROOM FOR YOU INSIDE MY HOUSE
I NEED TO BE ALONE

DON'T WASTE YOUR WORDS
I DON'T NEED ANYTHING FROM YOU
I DON'T CARE WHERE YOU'VE BEEN
OR WHAT YOU PLAN TO DO

OF YOUR COMPANY

DON'T WASTE YOUR WORDS
I DON'T NEED ANYTHING FROM YOU

UPON MY EVERY WORD


REPEAT CHORUS

I AM THE RESURRECTION AND

TO HATE YOU AS I'D LIKE

ELEPHANTT STONE

BURST INTO HEAVEN
KISS IN THE COTTON CLOUDS
ARTIC SHEETS AND FIELDS OF WHEAT
I CAN'T STOP COMING DOWN
YOUR SHRUNKEN HEAD
LOOKING DOWN ON ME ABOVE
SEND ME HOME LIKE AN ELEPHANT STONE
TO SMASH MY DREAM OF LOVE

DREAMING TILL THE SUN GOES DOWN
AND NIGHT TURNS INTO DAY
ROOMS ARE EMPTY I'VE GOT PLENTY
YOU COULD MOVE IN RIGHT AWAY

SEEMS LIKE THERE'S A HOLE IN MY DREAMS
IN MY DREAMS IN MY DREAMS

DOWN THROUGH THE HEAVENS
CHOKE IN THE COTTON CLOUDS
ARTIC SHEETS AND FIELDS OF WHEAT
I CAN'T STOP COMING DOWN
YOUR SHRUNKEN HEAD
LOOKING DOWN ON ME ABOVE
SEND ME HOME LIKE AN ELEPHANT STONE
TO SMASH MY DREAM OF LOVE

DID YOUR BED AND BOOKSHELF GO
AND RUN RUN RUN AWAY
THESE FOUR WALLS SAW THE RISE AND FALL
AND YOUR MIDNIGHT GETAWAY
SEEMS LIKE THERE'S A HOLE IN MY DREAMS
OR SO IT SEEMS
YET NOTHING MEANS ANYTHING ANYMORE

*************************************************************

GOING DOWN

DAWN SINGS IN THE GARDEN
PHONE SINGS IN THE HALL
THIS BOY'S DEAD FROM TWO DAY'S LIFE
RESURRECTED BY THE CALL
PENNY HERE, WE'VE GOT TO COME, SO COME ON ROUND TO ME
THERE'S SO MUCH, PENNY LYING HERE TO TOUCH, TASTE AND TEASE

RING A DING DING DING I'M GOING DOWN
I'M COMING ROUND
PENNY'S PLACE HER CRUMMY ROOM
HER DANSETTE CRACKLES TO JIMI'S TUNE
I TASTE AMBRE SOLAIRE
HER NECK, HER THIGHS, HER LIPS, HER HAIR
RING A DING DING DING I'M GOING DOWN
I'M COMING AROUND

ALL THOUGHTS OF SLEEP DESERT ME
THERE IS NO TIME
30 MINUTES BRINGS ME ROUND TO HER NUMBER 9

YEAH SHE LOOKS LIKE A PAINTING
JACKSON POLLOCH'S NUMBER 5
COME INTO THE FOREST AND TASTE THE TREES
THE SUN STARTS SHINING AND I'M HARD TO PLEASE
RING A DING DING DING I'M GOING DOWN
I'M COMING AROUND

REPEAT (ALL THOUGHTS...)

TO LOOK DOWN ON THE CLOUDS
YOU DON'T NEED TO FLY
I'VE NEVER FLOWN IN A PLANE
I'LL LIVE UNTIL I DIE

CAN'T GET ENOUGH
I'M GETTING OFF

   AUGUST 12:  Empress Ballroom Blackpool.  Manchester invades the coast

   "It's not where you're from, it's where you're at."  The event is
   recorded by Granada TV, but the Roses' management pull the plug on the

   selling indie album.

   JANUARY 30:  The Stone Roses and their road manager Steve Adge drive
   up to Wolverhampton from Rockfield Studios in South Wales, where they
   are recording with John Leckie, and visit their former record company,
   Revolver.  Angry at the label's re-release of their 1987 single 'Sally
   Cinnamon' - and specifically its accompanying video - they throw blue
   and white paint over label boss Paul Birch and his girlfriend Olivia
   Darling.  Ian Brown puts a brick through Birch's 25000 pound Mercedes.
   "The video was insulting", Brown said at the time.  "Blokes selling
   fruit, a few pigeons, some black woman holding a baby, a picture of me
   on the front of The Face, a few people in flares...  So we went and
   painted him."

   JANUARY 31:  The band and Steve Adge are arrested.  Ian Brown, John Squire
   and Reni are arrested in their hotel near the studio.  Mani and Steve

   MARCH 3:  'Elephant Stone' peaks at number 8.

   adjourned when the defence and prosecution fail to agree on a figure
   for damages.  The entire hearing lasts for less than 60 seconds.

   MARCH 10:  The case is adjourned to give Revolver time to prepare their
   defence.  NME reports that the band have lost the initial 'Sally Cinnamon'
   injunction.

   MARCH 17:  'Made Of Stone' peaks at number 20.

   MARCH 31:  The NME reports that Ian Brown was spotted in London's

   MAY 16:  Lund (Sweden).  'Sally Cinnamon' court case comes up again.

   MAY 17:  Stockholm.

   MAY 19:  Oslo.

   MAY 26:  At a pre Spike Island press conference in Manchester's
   Piccadilly Hotel, the band successfully bait press from all around
   the world.  Local journalist based in US, Frank Owen says they're
   taking the piss and is attacked by a drunken fan.  "What will you
   be doing in five years?" asks the Daily Star.  "What a stupid question"
   retorts Ian Brown.

   MAY 27:  Spike Island.  28000 attend the all day concert on an island
   in the Mersey Estuary.  The Stone Roses are the only band to play - the
   rest of the music is provided by DJs Frankie Knuckles, Gary Clail, Dave
   Haslam and Dave Booth.  The band perform 17 songs in 75 minutes, ending
   with a riotous 'I Am The Resurrection'.  The weather is gloriously
   sunny and the vibe is generally excellent.  But the queue for alcohol is
   two hours long and cigarettes are unavailable.  Backstage, journalists
   are appalled to learn that the only free drink on hand is Coca-Cola.

   JUNE 2:  Glasgow Green.  8000 people cram into a tent to witness The
   Stone Roses' last live appearance.  After the gig, the band return to the
   Sub Club, where they party until 7.30am.  Report in the NME that the
   release of the Roses' next single, 'One Love', is to be delayed, pending
   new cover art, because a swastika could be detected in John Squire's
   original painting.  "Anyone who knows us knows we're not Nazis," explains
   Ian Brown in a Select interview, "but if some kid in Barcelona goes into
   a bar with a t-shirt on - Stone Roses, looking a bit like a swastika - ends
   up gettng stabbed.  How would we feel then?"

   JUNE 3:  Appearance at Feria De Nimes Festival in Spain cancelled
   because of it's bull-fighting connections.  "We don't want a ritual
   slaughter as a support act,"  says a spokesman.

   JUNE 18:  Official release of 'One Love' is delayed.  The official line
   is that the cover art is not yet ready, although cynics believe that
   the band are prolonging the suspense to guarantee chart entry at number
