GIRLS ALOUD | Real Life

LYRICS:

Cos baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moments got to feel right
Cos honey if it don't then get out the station
Cos baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moments got to feel right
Cos honey if it don't then get out the station

You gotta get it, you gotta get it
And pretty soon you'll find the fingers fit
You gotta get it, you gotta get it
And find your groove before the others trip

It started with a look
And pretty soon it was a valentine
And when the whole earth shook
I pass him over to a friend of mine
He started as a squeeze
Oh pretty soon he was a tourniquet
I'll take my life back please
I liked it better with the time to play

(Show us your look)
I think I'm falling
(Show us your look)
I'm not done crawling
(Show us that look)
Or I'll keep stalling you

I was thinking of nights without you
Damn right I'll see it through
And I was thinking of life without me
I know I know it's just insanity

Cos baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moments got to feel right
Cos honey if it don't then get out the station
Cos baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moments got to feel right
Cos honey if it don't then get out the station

Dance while your dollar going up, up, up and
Catch your lucky number
While it's rising, rising
Chance comes a calling go and
Knock, knock, knock
It's better to be living than surviving-viving

It started with a kiss
And pretty soon it was a compromise
But with a kung fu twist
I pulled his focus back in on my mind
It started with a drink
That baby soon became a waterfall
But then my face turned pink cos
Cos I believed him when he said he'd call

(Show us your look)
I think I'm falling
(Show us your look)
I'm not done crawling
(Show us that look)
Or I'll keep stalling you

I was thinking of nights without you
Damn right, I'll see it through and
And I was thinking of life without me
I know I know it's just insanity

Cos baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moments got to feel right
Cos honey if it don't then get out the station
Cos baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moments got to feel right
Cos honey if it don't then get out the station

Dance while your dollar going up, up, up and
Catch your lucky number
While it's rising, rising
Chance comes a calling go and
Knock, knock, knock
It's better to be living than surviving-viving

Dance while your dollar going up, up, up and
Catch your lucky number
While it's rising, rising
Chance comes a calling go and
Knock, knock, knock
It's better to be living than surviving-viving-viving-viving-viving...

REVIEWS:
x The one big weak point is the opening of "Real Life", as Girls Aloud edge a bit too close to becoming complacent and the house style of runaway synths and amped-up vocals almost starts to sound a little routine. Then they do some handclaps that sound so blatantly tacked on that you can't help but fall in love with them all over again. William B. Swygart
