RACHEL STEVENS | Funny How

LYRICS:

Night got cold, it's almost three
Take these fools away from me

Funny how I always know before it's over
Deep down it's time to go
The night got cold, it's almost three
Take these fools away from me

What I want, what I need
Is an extra ordinary love
I can taste, I can feel
Electricity from up above
What I want, what I need
Oh, a never ending style
But it seems, it's in my dreams
Every time I look into his eyes

I'm getting high on emotion
One little kiss, I'm awake
I wanna give you devotion
So don't walk away

Funny how I always know before it's over
Deep down it's time to go
The night got cold, it's almost three
Take these fools away from me
I wanna love like lovers on the run
I won't take just any one
My heart got tired, it's way past three
Take these fools away from me

What I want, what I need
Is an ordinary wonderland
When I'm down on my knees
Something beautiful to hold my hand

I'm getting high on emotion
One little kiss, I'm awake
I wanna give you devotion
So don't walk away

Funny how I always know before it's over
Deep down it's time to go
The night got cold, it's almost three
Take these fools away from me
I wanna love like lovers on the run
I won't take just any one
My heart got tired, it's way past three
Take these fools away from me

Night got cold, it's almost three
Take these fools away from me

Funny how I always know before it's over
Deep down it's time to go
The night got cold, it's almost three
Take these fools away from me
I wanna love like lovers on the run
I won't take just any one
My heart got tired, it's way past three

REVIEWS:
x She also does confident dance with warmth and charm. "Funny How" stands as an obvious single-in-waiting with its gigantic electro hooks steeped in mid-80s pop cool, and the way Rachel wraps herself around the lyrics that spill over lines and stick in your ears is to die for. Edward Oculicz

x She betrays exquisite fatigue on "Funny How" which effectively undermines the determined Luomo-out-of-Kylie rhythmic bounce with a lyric which references both the Pet Shop Boys/Patsy Kensit and the KLF ("The night got cold/It's way past three/Take these fools away from me") and acts as a curious cold rationalist counterpart to the painful poignancy applied to the same subject matter on Sing Sing's "Going Out Tonight" (a song which in itself has proved to be the missing link between Slowdive's "Catch The Breeze" and the Streets' "Blinded By The Light") even as it then goes on to cite Nomad ("I wanna give you devotion") and the Four Tops/Joy Division ("so don't walk away"). Marcello Carlin

x (...) quite Kylie sounding, but fantastic. Thunking square electro bassline, some disco guitars and cheesy synth runs. And the vocoder breakdown is class. Genius lyric in the chorus - "take these fools away from me" in which she sounds terribly jaded with the dating/club scene. Emily
