Sia - Manchild Lyrics


Sia - Manchild Lyrics

(originally by Neneh Cherry)

 

Is it the pain of the drinking or the Sunday sinking feeling?

The car never seems to work

When it's late your girlfriend's on a date

And the hero with her in your dream in your sleep seemed like you

Turn around, ask yourself

Turn around, ask yourself

 

Manchild, will you ever win?

Manchild, look at the state you're in

 

Could you go undercover and sell your brand new lover?

(Could you) be someone else for a night?

Maybe someone else will love you

You'd sell your soul for a tacky song like the one you hear on the radio

Turn around, ask yourself

Turn around, ask yourself

 

Manchild, will you ever win?

Manchild, look at the state you're in

Manchild, he will make you cry

Manchild, manchild, manchild

 

From Monday down to Friday

You're working on another man's car

Or is it in the factory?

It doesn't matter where you are

 

Just turn around and ask yourself, is this communication?

Accentuate the positive and give some illustration

See, manchild, you're no one, I'll turn the microphone on

Control communication when I'm kicking it and so on

To the point where I need the air that I breathe

Into an audience that's waiting and ecstatic to receive

For the meantime another mean rhyme, I keep on saying it

I know what the time is and the crowd will keep on playing it

Through the speaker boxes. Loud's my diagnosis

'Cause I believe in miracles and words in steady doses

Enough R-E-S-P-E and C-T

Respect yourself, express, no stress, the mike is easy

Just believe that all you need is the air that you breathe

(Turn around and ask yourself)

 

Manchild, will you ever win?

Manchild, look at the state you're in

Manchild, he will make you cry

Manchild, manchild, manchild

He's the apple of your eye

 

Once bitten, twice shy, why don't you bite me again

Just take it in right and go tell your friend

Are you ready for the words? I'll turn the microphone on

A figure of speech to reach you at the back and so on

The style I'm stimulating dance floors

Raise your body temperature now and this demands for

Power in the amp, you know loud's my diagnosis

'Cause I believe in miracles, words in heavy doses
