all of a sudden lyrics – xtc

what can i say? why do we starve a thingthats near extinction? from
day to daythese weeds of fearare choking our convictionlife’s
like a jig-sawyou get the straight bitsbut there’s
something missing in the middleall of a suddenwe find
the cupboard bareall of a suddenwe find heaven’s not
thereall of a suddenwe find the sun’s gone coldall
of a suddenwe find we’re more than oldall of a suddenwe
find that we’ve lost loveplease don’t push or shove
becauseit’s too late, it’s too latein all your hurryyou’ve
accidentally locked the gatewhat can we do?
trying to stem the flow of sand is uselessit’s up to
you start holding handswatch the balance redresslife’s
like a fireworkyou’re only lit onceand you must stand
and radiate correctlyall of a suddenwe find the cupboard’s
bareall of a suddenwe find heaven’s not thereall of
a suddenwe find the sun’s gone coldall of a suddenwe
find we’re more than oldall of a suddenwe find that
we’ve lost loveso please don’t push or shove becauseit’s
too late, it’s too latein all your hurryyou’ve accidentally
locked the gatelove’s not a product you canhoard or
pack a suitcase withit’s more a way you have to givelife’s
like a jig-sawyou get the straight bitsbut there’s
plenty missing in the middleall of a suddenwe find
the cupboard bareall of a suddenwe find heaven’s not
thereall of a suddenwe find the sun’s gone coldall
of a suddenwe find we’re more than oldall of a suddenwe
find that we’ve lost loveplease don’t push or shove
becauseall of a suddenwe find the cupboard bareall
of a suddenwe find heaven’s not thereall of a suddenwe
find the sun’s gone coldall of a suddenwe find we’re
more than oldall of a suddenwe find that we’ve lost
lovein, in, in all your hurryyou’ve accidentally locked the gates
