Bobby Dupea Lyrics  

So I did something very ambitious! I listened to Bobby Dupea's songs and tried to write out the lyrics by ear (since they're basically impossible to find anywhere else). I guarantee that they are NOT 100% accurate, but I think I got close. I only did "Roam," "Stray Dog," and "I Was Broken" because you can find the lyrics to "I'll Be Your Lover, Too" very easily. Here ya go::



well, i like this world
well, i like this world
well, i like this world
i pray i was in this world
i fight outwards in this world
i could fight with words

ghosts in the rain
cold walk of freedom
well, i'm walking a hallway
i'm walking a hallway
said, i'm walking a hallway
i'm walking a hallway
i'm walking a hallway
well, i'm walking a hallway

i am proud and i'm gloried
thinking 'bout the day what'll surely come
when on the scene, i'm smile evaded
when outta nowhere, i'm gonna run
but i know where i go, i will be gone

somewhere to run to--if you see
you could see it through my mind
you wouldn't know it--no way
you'd know when my eyes roam
through the fog and hail and sleet
i missed the snow and nowhere
nowhere, nowhere, nowhere
you should've known where
should've known where
you should've known where
should've known better, baby

'cause i like this world
and i like this world

some people want to roam
some people, they roam this world alone
some people were born to roam
some people they roam this world alone




you're staring at the same old view
held on fast--it became old news, and i
i'll be gone 'fore long
at least i'm gone now
hallelujah for that

now you know what you lost
now you are the thieves that you pardon
search for need that will never come
hallelujah for that

there's more for their own now
its time for me to forget
i don't need a reason to, so
so long
stray dog
you're only joker, no
joker no more

oh, to each their own
but when you can call on your mind
just crying to hold back tears sometimes
wasted, wasted
before you forget what you came here for

you need to see the signs
and you need to stop wasting time
and selling the same damn story
story that you heard before
and i waited for you but you were long gone

stray dog
you're only
only stray joker, no
joker no more
stray dog



i was lonely
i was tired, now i'm bound
my head is off the ground

for a long time, i was so weary
tired of the sound i heard before
knowing of the nights i'm out the door
haunted by the things i did
stuck between the burning light and the dusty shade

said i, i used to think the past was dead and gone
i was wrong--so wrong
elements of blindness make you strong--make you strong
in my times, i melted into many forms
from the day i was born, no
i know there's no place to hide
stuck between the burning shade and the fading light

i was broken for a long time
but its over now
said i was broken for a long time
but its over now

yes, and you--yeah, you walk these lonely streets
where people stand--people stand
and some people just can't
and i do pretend
i'm free from all the things that saved my friends
i was there until the end
and i know i can take the moon
stuck between the burning shade and the fading light

i was broken for a long time
but its over now

No problem! That's why I did it--I kept looking and looking and couldn't find the lyrics, and I knew other people must be looking for them too, so I wrote them out as best as I could for other Pattinson fans!

"I Was Broken," is originally by Marcus Foster. He's an unsigned artist in the UK and he is absolutely AMAZING. I love him. You won't find his songs for download, though, so you'll have to go to his MySpace. Unfortunately, his version of "I Was Broken," isn't up anymore. Which is a pity,because its absolutely amazing.

If you do find it, could you do me a huge favour and share with me? I've been heartbroken since he took it off his MySpace (I was actually a fan of Foster's before Rob covered his song), and I would love to hear it again! You would so be my best friend and I would make you lots of lovely Rob icons!

Wow you have a really good ear!
Well done for getting these together and thanks!

I'm a Marcus Foster fan too, I LOVE his music. I used to have a couple of his tracks (inc the original I Was Broken, which is very frustrating to have lost) but I can't find them anywhere. You don't have any of his others do you?

No problem. I'm glad so many people find the lyrics useful.

I love Marcus Foster so much, but I don't have any MP3s of his on my computer! Never have! :( I've never found a place to DL them, so I'm very sad about that. If I find some, though, I'll pass them on. I hope you'll do the same? :D
