Whispering Voices (Officilal vinyl 7 inch version)

Whispering Voices
Can get inside your head
To make you feel bad
And make you feel sad and lonely
Doctors in trouble
A'waiting 'round the corner
To bring you down
And make you frown and give up

Jumping chairs is no way to live,
No way to get you through the night
Leave your responsibilities
If things feel bad,
Turn on the night!
And make those whispering voices leave you alone

Whispering voices
Will get you if you don't watch
They'll make you ill,
Against your will you fall
Dispair disaster
Will get you if you don't watch
They'll get your nick,
They'll make you sick if you want them

Jumping chairs is no way to live,
No way to get you through the night
Leave your responsibilities
If things feel bad,
Turn on the night!
And make those whispering voices leave you alone

Whispering voices
yeah,yeah
Whispering voices
yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah
Whispering voices
yeeeeeeeeeah
Whispering voices
Come on
Come on now, tell me
Whispering voices
Hear the song
All night long
Whispering voices
Come on, come on, come on
Whispering voices
Aaaaaaaaaaa......ha!
Whispering voices

Don't Let it Bring You Down (by Niel Young)

Old man lying by the side of the road
As the lorries pass me by
Full moon sinkin' from the weight of the load
And the buildings scrape the sky
Cold wind rippin' down the alley at dawn
And the morning paper flies
Dead man lying by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes
Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burnin'
Find someone who's turnin'
And you will come around

Blind man walkin' by the river at night
With an answer in his hand
Come on down to the river of sight
Where you can really understand
Red lights flashing through the window in the rain
Can you hear the sirens moan?
White stick burned by side lane
If you're walking home alone
Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burnin'
Find someone who's turnin'
And you will come around

Old man lying by the side of the road
As the lorries pass me by
Full moon sinkin' by the weight of the load
And the buildings touchs the sky
Cold wind rippin' down the alley at dawn
And the morning paper flies
Dead man lying by the side of the road
With the daylight in his eyes
Don't let it bring you down
It's only castles burnin'
Find someone who's turnin'
And you will come around
You will come around
You will come around
You will come around

Truth Kills

Truths killes everybody and lies can lean your mind into
Open doors protect nobody
Once inside you can't get through
Eyes are closed like cameras, shutting out importen light
What you really risk is only what you know by sight

Truth kills
Truth kills

Hiding from the mountains and the mountains hiding you
Burning burning, burning sunset
Only glad to

Eyes are closed like cameras, shutting out importen light
What you really risk is only what you know by sight

Truth kills
Truth kills

Take a look at my new toy
It will blow you head in two ohh boy
It will take you down on peagasue

Truths killes everybody and lies can lean your mind into
Open doors protect nobody
Once inside you can't get through
Eyes are closed like cameras, shutting out importen light
What you really risk is only what you know by sight

Truth kills

Hiding from the mountains and the mountains hiding you
Burning burning, burning sunset
Only glad to

Eyes are closed like cameras, shutting out importen light
What you really risk is only what you know by sight

Savage Beast

I am a savage beast
I cling onto this mountain while I sleep
This lonelyness seems part of me
I know the price so only let me be

And should I ever weep
The river song will sing my soul to sleep
When love is sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place

I am a savage beast
I cling onto this mountain while I sleep
This lonelynes is part of me
I know the price so only let me be

And should I ever weep
The river song will sing my soul to sleep
When love is sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place

I Got It Made

I got it made
And my hollowed heart time note
Im not afraid
And I'll show you now
I was a fool
Before this change your mind
Now im cool
I don't even try
When I think
How I used to be so chub
Now im thin
I don't even try

Who knows what happend to me
I've must have felt from my family tree
I hit my head and broke my nose
I got a lumb that glows in shows
But the end is always good
I do the things I should
Now I made it bad
I realized was I had
Nothing yet
All that sand++ in my face
I used to f++
And my acne grew
so i wrote to that bodybuilding club
they turned me down
I was in a stew

When I think
How I used to be so chub
Now im thin
I don't even try
Who knows what happend to me
I've musthave felt from my family tree
I hit my head and broke my nose
I got a lumb that glows in shows
But the end is always good
I do the things I should
Now I made it bad
I realized was I had

I got it made
And my hollowed heart time note
Im not afraid
And I'll show you now
I was a fool
Before this change your mind
Now im cool
I don't even try
When I think
How I used to be so chub
Now im thin
I don't even try

Who knows what happend to me
I've must felt from my family tree
I hit my head and broke my nose
I got a lumb that glows in shows
But the end is always good
I do the things I should
Now I made it bad
I realized was I had
Nothing

 

Oh My God

Everyone I know is lonely
and God's so far away
and my heart belongs to no one
so now sometimes I pray

Take the space between us
and fill it up someway
I been waiting for my brother since blessed christmas day

Take the space between us
and fill it up someway

I been waiting for my brother since blessed christmas day

Take a look around you
your spirits ain't so low

You don't speak to anybody
so you can't expect them to know

Everybodys lonesome
only some of us don't care
if you looking for your brother
you coud find him there


Take the space between us
and fill it up someway
I been waiting for my brother since blessed christmas day

O my God you take the biscuit
Treating me this way
Expecting me to help my nabo
No matter what he say
Can't turn the other cheek
It's black and bruised and torn
The world don't seem no better
Since your precious son was born

Take the space between us
and fill it up someway
I been waiting for my brother since blessed christmas day

Carrion Prince (O Ye of Little Faith)

The afternoon has gently passed me by
The evening spreads its sail against the sky
O ye of little faith
You follow in my step
We crumble on the ground before you dry

The universe is but a question mark
Hangs above my head there in the dark
O ye of little hope
I thought that I could croak
The truth has stretched you far from me, too far

Oh Pilate, you speak to me so clear
Your voice of hell has filled my soul with fear
O ye of little blood
You call lies in the mud
You hands are always washing them

The afternoon has gently passed me by
The evening spreads its sail against the sky
O ye of little faith
You follow in my step
We crumble on the ground before you dry
Oh Pilate, you speak to me so clear
Your voice of hell has filled my soul with fear
O ye of little blood
You call lies in the mud
You hands are always washing them

Fool in love

Well someone told me yesterday
That when you throw your love away
You act as if you just don't care
and look as if you're going somewhere

But I just can't convince myself
I couldn't live with no one else
And I can only play that part
And sit and nurse my broken heart

I was a fool in love
Too proud to learn my lesson
Hoping you'ld alwayes stayed
but i wasted my time away

Somebody please
Fill up my emptiness
Vanish my loneliness
Show me some tenderness
and the warmth of your sweet caress

Now no one's knocked upon my door
For a thousand years or more
All made up and nowhere to go
Welcome to this one man show

Just take a seat they're always free
No surprise no mystery
In this theatre that I call my soul
I always play the starring role

Im a fool in love
Too proud to learn my lesson
Hoping you'ld alwayes stayed
but i wasted my time away

Somebody please
Fill up my emptiness
Vanish my loneliness
Show me some tenderness
and the warmth of your sweet caress

Now no one's knocked upon my door
For a thousand years or more
All made up and nowhere to go
Welcome to this one man show

Just take a seat they're always free
No surprise no mystery
In this theatre that I call my soul
I always play the starring role

I was a fool in love
Too proud to learn my lesson
Hoping you'ld alwayes stayed
but i wasted my time away

Somebody please
Fill up my emptiness
Vanish my loneliness
Show me some tendernes
and the warmth of your sweet caress

Somebody please
Fill up my emptiness
Vanish my loneliness
Show me some tenderness
and the warmth of your sweet caress

Every Day's Just The Same

Every day's
Just the same
Nothing seems to
Happen in this life of mine
Everything's so grey

In the past
I been down
Now I've got a future
To look forward to
What's there left to say?

All my thoughts and fantasies
Dreams where I pretend I'm free
Soarin' like an eagle, high and wide

After birth, nothing's changed
All I get's frustrated
With the way things are
Nothing seems to work

Pull me here
Push me there
Take me 'round the corner
Beat me up, I lose
Nothing but my face

Maybe I should
Stay in bed
Think of something
In my head
All been through
This face that's all my own

Every day's
Just the same
Every day's
Just the same
Every day's
Just the same

Every day's
Just the same
Nothing seems to happen
in this life of mine
Everything's so grey

In the past
I been down
Now I've got a future
To look forward to
What's there left to say?

All my thoughts and fantasies
Dreams where I pretend I'm free
Soarin' like an eagle, high and wide

Every day's
Just the same
Every day's
Just the same

I Burn For You

Now that I have found you
In the coolth of your evening smile
The shade of your parasol
And your love flows through me
Though I drink at your pool
Still I burn for you
I burn for you

You and I are lovers
And nighttime falls around our bed
In peace we sleep entwined
And your love flows through me
Though an ocean soothes me head
Still I burn for you
I burn for you

Deep in my heart theres a whole world that's turning
and inners to you wich has keept my soul yearning

and I burn for you
I burn for you

Stars will fall from dark skies
As ancient rocks are turning
Quiet fills the room
And your love flows through me

Though I lie here so still
I burn for you
I burn for you
I burn for you

Don't You Look At Me

Hello stranger, oooh don't you know me well
Though my face has altered, is it so hard to tell

No don't leave me
until you have heard my tail
I have traveled ocean's
fair wind at my sail

Don't you look at me
with your tongue in cheek
when it's pain i get
and it's pleasure I seek

though my flesh is willing
my spirit is weak

take my money
call me honey
love me tender
love me sweet
love me right
love me tonight

why pretend now
we loved many times before
in every port i sailed to
in every habour bar

why your wearing
that same old shabby dress
it's no place for a lady
why your hair in such a mess

Don't you look at me
with your tongue in cheek
when it's pain i get
and it's pleasure i seek

though my flesh is willing
my spirit is weak

take my money
call me honey
love me tender
love me sweet
love me right
love me tonight

love me tonight
(repeat to fade)

I'm On This Train

Im on this train, but who can tell me
who can say, where it will go
Im on this train, the destination is just obscure

You don't know my name or number
wether i live or stuck
time is right for dancing
but the street emxxxx shot
So come with me, I'll take you where things might be okay or bad
and if you know life well enough
it will make you happy and I feel glad

Im on this train, can't tell if our choice is wrong
how far i'll gone
Im on this train, don't know what our faith will be
We'll running late

You don't know my name or number
whether i live or stuck
time is right for dancing
but the street emxxxx shot
So come with me, I'll take you where things might be okay or bad
and if you know life well enough
it will make you happy and I feel glad

You don't know my name or number
wether i live or stuck
time is right for dancing
but the street emxxxx shot
So come with me, I'll take you where things might be okay or bad
and if you know life well enough
it will make you happy and I feel glad

Im on this train, but who can tell me
who can say, where it will go

Savage Beast

I am a savage beast
I cling onto this mountain while I sleep
This loneliness is part of me
I know the price so only let me be

And should I ever weep
The river song will sing my soul to sleep
When love is sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place

I am a savage beast
I cling onto this mountain while I sleep
This loneliness is part of me
I know the price so only let me be

And should I ever weep
The river song will sing my soul to sleep
When love is sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place

 

Night In The Grand Hotel

Well the moon was full
and the stars were bright
and I'd driven so far I could tell
That I needed to rest when over the hill came the lights of the Grand Hotel.
So I parked my car and took my bags to the desk and then I rang the bell
and a voice said 'So you've come to spend a night at the Grand Hotel'

Chorus
If you ever spend a night at the Grand Hotel
You're better off spending a night in hell
Thats a story you'll be lucky if you live to tell
The night you spend on the Grand Hotel

My room was damp and dark and cold
and the air had a terrible smell,
when the dinner gong rang
in the lobby below
for the guest at the Grand Hotel.
The guest all filed into that room
as if they were under a spell
the bread was stale, the soup was pale
my pudding was cold as well

Chorus
If you ever spend a night at the Grand Hotel
You're better off spending a night in hell
Thats a story you'll be lucky if you live to tell
The night you spend on the Grand Hotel

Back in my room
in my bed in the gloom
fast asleep I fell
when a terrible scream
rang through the night
and shook that Grand Hotel
Smoke came pouring through that door
with an awful burning smell
In an empty room I fought through the flames
alone in the Grand Hotel

Chorus
If you ever spend a night at the Grand Hotel
You're better off spending a night in hell
Thats a story you'll be lucky if you live to tell
The night you spend on the Grand Hotel

*well the xxxx disappeared
*though where I could not tell
I reached the door as my thonge
like a wind through the Grand Hotel
well I must have ran a mile or more
to find someone to tell
a cottage window spilled out light
and on it's door I fell

Chorus
If you ever spend a night at the Grand Hotel
You're better off spending a night in hell
Thats a story you'll be lucky if you live to tell
The night you spend on the Grand Hotel

An old man came and led me in my awfull fears to quell
I told him of the night I spend
at the burning of the Grand Hotel
His face went white, his hands went cold.
'Nay nay not the Grand Hotel, it burned down twenty years ago, it's just a ruined shell'

If you ever spend a night at the Grand Hotel
You're better off spending a night in hell
Thats a story you'll be lucky if you live to tell
The night you spend on the Grand Hotel

Soul Music

When she left I was down
there was nothing left to make me feel good
All alone I would drink to my body couldnt stand no food
I would talk to myself till I ran out of things to say
And as time walked on I looked more like a tramp every day

I was out on the street one night
there was some music and a flashing light
So I followed my feet down some stairs
there was some people there dancing in pans

Soul music

It was soul music
It was soul music
It was soul music

There was a man on the stage that day
that could tell if they where doing it right
al the kids on the room could xcxcx
if they new that funky tune

Soul music

It was soul music
It was soul music
It was soul music

Whats makes you fell like you newer felt before ?
What brings you up as you come through that door ?
You may feel bad, but you just gotta move
Why don't you get into the groove

Soul music

It was soul music
It was soul music
It was soul music

You could say that I saved my soul
When I pulled myself out of that hole
I was lost until i found myself
Now im just like everyone else

I got soul music
I got soul music
I got soul music
I got soul music

I get high on music
It's the only way to do it

I get high on music
It's the only way to do it

I get high on music
It's the only way to do it

I get high on music
It's the only way to do it

I got soul music
I got soul music
I got soul music

I got soul music

Before The Police, Sting performed with another band called Last Exit. They were together from the period 1973 till late 1976, everybody will have heard the story from that point. Last Exit band members were: John Hedley (guitar), Gerry Richardson (keyboards), Ronnie Pearson (drums) and Gordon Sumner (bass).

They did a total of 3 sessions to make a demo tape for trying to get a contract with a record company. They weren't very lucky with this, only Sting ended up with a contract with Virgin, just only for his songs. Here starts his problem with Virgin which came to a climax in the eighties.

Last exit recorded the folling demo tracks:

1. Whispering Voices
2. Evensong
3. Everybody's Just the Same
4. Carrion Prince
5. Don't Let it Bring You Down
6. Whispering Voices

Well know is the single "Whispering Voices/Evensong" (wudwick WUD/01) which is the only record of the band that was ever released.

Sting latest songs were inspired (copied!) from some of this earlier work. Let's make a comparison between one of his first songs and one from his first solo album.


  Savage Beast (Last Exit):

I am a savage beast
I cling into this mountain
while I sleep
This lonelynes is part of me
I know the price so only let me be
and should I ever weep
The river song will sing my soul to sleep
When love is sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place
We work the black seam (TDOTBT):

Our concious lives run deep
You cling onto your mountain
while I sleep
This way of life is part of me
There is no price so only let me be
and should the children weep
The turning world will sing their soul to sleep
When you have sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place

Interesting is'nt it ?

As already mentioned they made some recording sessions, This is what they did:

- 1974 Wallsend "Impulse sound studios"

1. Everyday's just the same
2. Carrion Prince (ye off little hope)
3. Dont let it bring you down (Neil Young cover)
4. Whispering voices
5. I got it made
6. I'm on this train
7. Oh my god

- October 1976 London "Pathway Studios"
They were in London for one week to do some gigs and to do 2 sessions for Virgin records. The songs they did were:

1. I'm on this train
2. Savage beast
3. Soul music
4. Night in the Grand hotel
5. I can't say
6. Give and take
7. Getting it in
