Save the world

After 50 years waiting for Lovers From The Sky to be finally released Trevor started thinking about what might have worked better? In this ‘sweet’ song Trevor introduces other words he might have sung if John Lennon hadn’t found Trevor’s original words on the back of a greasy menu.

 

LYRICS: (Alternative title) “SAVE THE FRIES”

THERE CAME THE MOMENT I’D BEEN WAITING FOR I PUT MY GUITAR CASE DOWN BY THE DOOR

LOOKED UP AND THAT’S WHEN I SAW A FAMILIAR FACE, WELL, THAT WAS FOR SURE

JOHN LENNON WAS PATIENTLY WAITING FOR ME TO PLAY A SONG THAT JUST HAPPENED TO BE

ABOUT MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE BUT WHEN I LOST MY LYRICS I ONLY FELT DISGRACE

AND NOW I WONDER HOW IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN

I WROTE THOSE WORDS IN A GREASY CAFÉ ON THE BACK OF A MENU I FOUND IN SOMEBODY’S TRAY

JOHN FOUND THE MENU IN MY GUITAR CASE PICKED IT UP AND SAID THE CHIPS WOULD BE GREAT

I FLIPPED THE MENU ON THE OTHER SIDE JOHN LISTEN TO MY WORDS INSTEAD OF ORDERING FRIES

IT WAS ABOUT TWO ALIENS WHO WERE VERY SHY SAVING THE WORLD AS LOVERS FROM THE SKY

AND NOW I WONDER HOW IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN

MY HANDS WERE SHAKING I GOT READY TO PLAY LIKE A HURRICANE I NEARLY BLEW MYSELF A WAY

WELL IT ALL WORKED OUT LIKE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE GOT SIGNED UP ALTHOUGH IN REALITY

WAITED 50 YEARS BEFORE MY SONG GOT HEARD I SHOULD HAVE CHANGED THOSE FREAKIN WORDS

IF I GAVE JOHN THOSE FRIES WHILE I IMPROVISED INSTEAD OF THOSE SWEET LOVERS FROM THE SHY

AND NOW I WONDER HOW IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN IF I SANG DIFFERENT WORDS THE WORLD MIGHT HAVE HEARD THE STATE I WAS REALLY IN…

SAVE THE WORLD MAKE IT A BETTER PLACE BECOME AN ALIEN SAY GOODBYE TO THE HUMAN RACE
