Cole, Lloyd - Down On Mission Street Lyrics




Some say that you may soon be leaving town
Do you tire of chasing all the women around?

Will you never be contented with your life
Will you always be the one who won't think twice?

When you go down on your knees
You're so hard to please
When you go down on your knees
You're so hard down on Mission Street

God only knows how you can hurt her
When you know that's what you do
How does it feel to be so cruel?

Will you never be contented with your life
Will you always be the one who won't look back?

When you go down on your knees
You're so hard to please
When you go down on your knees
It feels like up down on Mission Street

Julie said your eyes are blue
Your lips are cold as stone
She picked you up and you put her down
And messed her place around

Will you never be contented with your life
Will you always be the one who won't think twice?

When you go down on your knees
You're so hard to please
When you go down on your knees
You're so hard down on Mission Street
When you go down on your knees
You're so hard to please
When you go down on your knees
It feels like up down on Mission Street

  1. Helmut's Ecke

    Eine Sonderzeit, Paris in der vergangenheit, mit diesem Lied, ausgezeichnet.

  2. You Joker

    God, when I first discovered this song/album I'd just split with my GF who was smothering me. I went & stayed at my brothers who'd just got remarried.. Well she had a daughter who I ended up with for a short while. I didn't know she was pregnant but I also didn't know my 'ex' had found she was pregnant!
    I ended up back with my ex & found out that my brothers step daughter was already pregnant when I met her and she tried her best to make me stay but I found out about her being pregnant before she met me. Long story short, this song even then, seemed somewhat appropriate to my life at the time. I have both wonderful and really sad memories of that period of time. 3 months into my 20s. Sad that both babies were lost and I felt it was 90%my fault..

    Here are these wonderful and poetic lyrics :

    Some say that you may soon be leaving town
    Do you tire of chasing all the women around ?

    Will you never be contented with your life ?
    Will you always be the one who won't think twice ?

    When you go down on your knees
    You're so hard to please
    When you go down on your knees
    You're so hard , down on Mission Street

    God only knows how you can hurt her
    When you know that's what you do
    How does it feel to be so cruel ?

    Will you never be contented with your life de ?
    Will you always be the one who won't look back ?

    When you go down on your knees
    You're so hard to please
    When you go down on your knees
    It feels like up, down on Mission Street

    Julie said your eyes are blue
    Your lips are cold as stone
    She picked you up and you put her down
    And messed her place around

    Will you…

  4. massimo Filippini

    A nice song from a great decade

  5. Stevo Methd One

    Reminds me of a particularly intense 4 weeks or so of my life after leaving my GF.
    I stayed with my brother & his new wife. His new wife had a stunningly beautiful daughter
    who was just 16. Well you can guess what happened! I felt so happy to have that 'new' feeling when you look at a person & you get butterflies.
    Trouble was I found my ex-was pregnant & every time I met up with her my heart was torn.
    I remember having to ultimately 'do the right thing' & I spent a night crying over whether it really was the right thing or not?
    This album was on constantly, especially this song.

  6. KonstanzArrens

    Not one dud track on this album. The bittersweet rarely comes across so beautifully as in this rueful song.

  7. anthony mcnally

    this song always makes me feel great while I am crying

  8. tebbenjo

    I love this song, but can never tell when I start it if it'll bring me up or make me sad; it's coin toss but good ether way.

  9. Theresa Light

    many happy memories of this time in my life so love this album 

  10. Paco Carrillo

    I love...

  11. Luís T

    Few times in your life you have the privilege to listen to an album where music e lyrics were combined with this perfection. I so glad I am one of them. Thanks Mr. Cole & The Commotions.

  12. BODLAW1

    "Will you never be contented with your lies? Will you always be the one who won't look back?" Lloyd is great at subtly taking shots.

  13. Dosalt

    I was looking for this song. I hope it will stay.

  14. freebullitt

    The first indie single of Lloyd Cole was a song called ''Down at the mission''. ''Down on mission street'' is a kind of ''new version'' even if the two songs has completely different lyrics and music.

  15. kukla306

    This video and all Lloyds songs are brilliant, I've loved them when they first came out..Rattlesnake album is a bubble bath and wine album..no song should be skipped....brilliant

  16. anthony mcnally

    I am confused by so little comments . My god, this is wonderful. I am on my knees . i suppose too many people are contented. Wow listen to the mandolin, then the violin. Bejeusus.

  17. LazyGigolo

    I'll say it too: My favourite Lloyd Cole song of all and the best of all the british productions of the 80s
    Thx from Germany
