Like No Other (2006 Remastered) - Lyrics

An ordinary man
Was not much in demand
He lives a quiet life
His wife don't understand
But underneath it all
This is suburban Hell
He's up against the wall
You know, he's obviously unwell

She didn't like the things he did
He said that he couldn't live without her
He made her cry just like a kid
I think this prayer needs a transfer

It's a fragile situation
Will he lose his head?
Or make a change in his location
And just go back to bed

I'll catch you when you fall
And if you stumble, call
This driving rain has got to end
Just call me when you need a friend
Your life is down and out
The flame is burning out
And when you're down, it makes me suffer
You're a girl just like no other

Sometimes he feels so small
He turns to alcohol
She doesn't like the taste
But then it's better than his face
This connection will not mend
How I pray that you'll be happy
But you're in a downward trend
Leave this place and make it snappy

Just undo this combination
You know it is up to you
It's time you saved your reputation
I think it's overdue

People throwing lives around
Don't you think it's sad?
While half the world is getting on
The other's getting mad
Oh, people taking lives away
Don't you think it's sad?
While the world is having fun
The other half is bad
