FRANK | All I Ever Do

LYRICS:

I took your hand this morning
And we turned to grey
The colour in your eyes was dark as lead
I wanna get the passion back of yesterday
When our love was red
Been looking at the pictures that you put away
Our multi coloured kissing in the sand
But you don't even recognize
What's happening in our shadow land

Well hot, hot heavy
Can't you see I'm ready on my knees?
I'm waiting for you
Hot, hot heavy
Now my heart beat's getting kind of real
That's how I feel

'Cos all I ever do is wait at home for you
When all you ever do
Is make me black and blue
Said you'd paint me colours of a kid's cartoon
But I'm standing and I'm fading before you

If you find a way to touch me
I can feel your heat
A burning that I know you can't forget
Don't worry I can colour in the in-betweens
When I'm in your bed
'Cos you wrap me up in metal on a steel guitar
And shock me with a flashing of your eye
Come on cookie let me
Brighten up your batteries and set you alight

Well hot, hot heavy
Can't you see I'm ready on my knees?
I'm waiting for you
Hot, hot heavy
Now my heart beat's getting kind of real
That's how I feel

'Cos all I ever do is wait at home for you
When all you ever do
Is make me black and blue
Said you'd paint me colours of a kid's cartoon
But I'm standing and I'm fading before you

Life, you gotta take me higher
Oh don't you give me that chit chatter
'Cos I won't keep it down
And life, I wanna walk your wire
I've got my scarlet shoes so it don't matter
I'm gonna rouge the town

'Cos all I ever do is wait at home for you
When all you ever do
Is make me black and blue
Said you'd paint me colours of a kid's cartoon
But I'm standing and I'm fading before you

REVIEWS:
x On "All I Ever Do" [Xenomania] go all in and create a loud, thrilling pop number that makes no discernible effort to not sound like it could have been recorded by Girls Aloud. The guitar riff is prominent, and while not surf-twangy, has the kind of crunchiness that we know and love. (...) the wavering melody of "All I Ever Do" is so lilting -- "I took your hand this morning and we turned to grey"; "cause all I ever do is wait at home for you/When all you ever do is make me black and blue" -- that it drags Lauren's vocals up and down the scale, and thereby injects or even forces a bit more emotion into them (much as Richard X's production did to Rachel Stevens' on "Crazy Boys," as I've argued).
