Lyrics

I woke up in the morning, I was still alive
The mirror said I'm 55 years old
If I don't look his way, I'm gonna do okay
Gonna last another day without your love
Yeah, I can last another day without your love

Oh, but no one lives on love for more than half a year
That's what a friend of mine once said to me
Oh yeah
There's more things in the world than holding hands and kissing girls
You got to last another day without your love
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Last another day without your love
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
Last another day without your love

Oh, but I dreamt of you last nite
And the world split into two
I tried to listen to some records
But they're all singing about you
I can live on, never knowing where my soul is going when I die
I got to last another day without your love
No no no no no no
I got to last another day without your love
No no no no no no
I got to last another day without your love

Oh, alright
Oh yeah, I realise
Yeah, I should think about somebody new instead
That's what I tried to do
The only ones I liked looked just like you
I got to last another day without your love
Ma ma ma ma ma ma
Last another day without your love
Ma ma ma ma ma ma
Last another day without your love

Oh, because I dreamt of you last nite
And the world split into two
I tried to listen to some records
But they're all singing about you
I can live on never knowing where my soul is going when I die
I got to last another day without your love
No no no no no no
I got to last another day without your love
No no no no no no
I got to last another day without your love

Three blind mice go owww
Oh, momma

It's okay, I'm not a kid anymore
I gonna last another day without your love
And if I focus all my thoughts on something stupid
I'm gonna last another day without your love
I'm gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Good god!

Because I dreamt of you last nite
And the world split into two
I tried to listen to some records
But they're all singing about you
Yeah, I can live on never knowing where my soul is going when I die
I got to last another day without your love
No no no no no no
I got to last another day without your love
No no no no no no
I got to last another day without your love
Yeah

Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day
Gonna last another day
Last another day

Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma...
Yeah
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma...

I'm got to last another day without your love

Jarvis' sleeve notes

This song pre-dates everything else here and is uncomfortably close to that dread genre "Indie-Dance". At one time it was our most popular live song and we were always intending to release it as a single but we never seemed to be able to get it right in the studio. This version is taken from a Radio 1 Mark Goodier session from 1992 and is about the closest we ever got. The "Three Blind Mice" bit is quite funny.
