Paul Weller - Call Me No.5 lyrics

I dream't I was falling
I never woke up
I dream't of a warning
a yellow buttercup

I dream't of an old flame
smoking cigarettes she was
dancing in a night club
with some other men

I was holding up a drugstore
My gun was soaking wet
from the barrel I was trapped in
that went tumbling over the edge

you can call me.... Number 5
please please my my
call me Number 5
call me Number 5
that's why I'm still alive!

The barrel cracked up open
I was swimming for my breath
I knew I wouldn't make it
She watched me catch my death

So I switched on the TV
saw me reading out the news
another story of a plane crash
another story of bad news

The TV cracked up open
my baby boy came out
I was looking at my new wife
I ain't writing home about

you can call me.... Number 5
please please my my
that's why I'm still alive!

I boxed around a sliver ring
with blood stains on my face
I cut the dog with yellow teeth
and drove his car away

you can call me.... Number 5
please please my my
call me Number 5
call me Number 5
that's why I'm still alive!
