  • There's no evil introductions
    No dark corridors of fame
    You won't find your fortune
    You might find some pain

    I wanna lie, lie together
    Feels like our last embrace
    In a world full of confusion
    Yeah the human race

    But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
    Is there anywhere better than here?
    You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
    Is there anywhere better than here?

    Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
    I don't wanna let you go
    Sometimes these feelings hit me, I start to cry
    'Cause I won't ever let you go

    Oh my my my my we're multiplying
    Always living under some cloud
    Always on the eve of destruction
    Make you wanna scream out loud
    And as I watched the birds soar
    Mighty lies and wishes spun
    Oh mama mama why I'm still crying
    Oh now the day is come

    'Cause I'd rather be here than be anywhere
    Is there anywhere better than here?
    You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
    Is there anywhere better than here?

    Sometimes life seems to tear us apart
    I don't wanna let you go
    Sometimes these feelings hit me, I start to cry
    'Cause I won't ever let you go

    But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
    Is there anywhere better than here?
    You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
    Is there anywhere better than here?
    But I'd rather be here than be anywhere
    Is there anywhere better than here?
    You know these feelings I found, they are oh so rare
    Is there anywhere better than here?

    Sometimes this feeling hits me
    Sometimes this feelings hit me
    These feelings are oh so rare Writer/s: RICHARD ASHCROFT
