"All of a sudden" Lyrics

album:
English Settlement [1982]

genre:
Indie

What can I say?
Why do we starve a thing
Thats near extinction?

From day to day
These weeds of fear
Are choking our conviction

Life's like a jig-saw
You get the straight bits
But there's something missing in the middle

All of a sudden
We find the cupboard bare
All of a sudden
We find heaven's not there
All of a sudden

We find the sun's gone cold
All of a sudden
We find we're more than old
All of a sudden
We find that we've lost love

Please don't push or shove because
It's too late, it's too late
In all your hurry
You've accidentally locked the gate

What can we do?
Trying to stem the flow of sand is useless
It's up to you start holding hands
Watch the balance redress

Life's like a firework
You're only lit once
And you must stand and radiate correctly

All of a sudden
We find the cupboard's bare
All of a sudden
We find heaven's not there
All of a sudden

We find the sun's gone cold
All of a sudden
We find we're more than old
All of a sudden
We find that we've lost love

So please don't push or shove because
It's too late, it's too late
In all your hurry
You've accidentally locked the gate

Love's not a product you can
Hoard or pack a suitcase with
It's more a way you have to give

Life's like a jig-saw
You get the straight bits
But there's plenty missing in the middle

All of a sudden
We find the cupboard bare
All of a sudden
We find heaven's not there
All of a sudden

We find the sun's gone cold
All of a sudden
We find we're more than old
All of a sudden
We find that we've lost love

Please don't push or shove because

All of a sudden
We find the cupboard bare
All of a sudden
We find heaven's not there
All of a sudden

We find the sun's gone cold
All of a sudden
We find we're more than old
All of a sudden
We find that we've lost love

In, in, in all your hurry
You've accidentally locked the gates
