Manic Street Preachers - Show Me The Wonder Lyrics




This is no threat
Just an invitation
A sense of belonging
A sense of inspiration

Is heaven a place
Where nothing ever happens
Is it too much to ask
To disbelieve in everything

Show me the wonder
I have seen the birthplace of the universe
Show me the wonder
I have seen their records move in reverse

If you're exiled
By all the cruel tongues
Then show me the wonder
The wonder of your love

A tapping pain of madness
Running through their veins
We may write in English
But our truth lays in Wales

Show me the wonder
I have seen the birthplace of the universe
Show me the wonder
I have seen their records move in reverse

Praying for the silence
When we look in to a mirror
Stained so patient
We measure the nostalgia

Is heaven a place
Where nothing ever happens
Is it too much to ask
To disbelieve in everything

Show me the wonder
I have seen the birthplace of the universe
Show me the wonder
I have seen their records move in reverse

Show me the wonder
Show me the wonder
I have seen their records move in reverse

    Either it's mystery solved or the madness in my veins hahaha (joke)

  19. Oriol P.

    me encantan estos videos con historia para el álbum Rewind the film

  20. Mirna Zapata

    Essa canção é linda demais. Quero participar de um clipe!!! #manics

  21. Patrick Gallagher

    107,, dislikes,, 107 idiots

  22. Charles Taylor

    What a well put together song, top manics

  23. Sean Jones

    be awesome

  24. Sean Jones

    I so want you guys to play my back st snooker hall in Rhyl just like this 😂

  25. SC Taylor

    I only just realised that the girl is the same one from the Anthem for a Lost Cause video. So presumably these guys got together and got married, and then it all went to shit, which is just heartbreaking. But on a lighter note, she was clearly a hardcore Manics fan, hence all the glitter <3

    Felicity Flynn

    I know what you mean. As a woman trade unionist and a person who likes wearing glitter make up to clubs, it's a really nice visual.

  26. Franzo CRI.

    Se non ci fossero bisognerebbe inventarli!!! Favolosi

  27. Daniel de Culla

    Lovely¡

  28. Kate Burgess

    Love this video, what a band!

  29. CultureOfCritique

    The Holy Bible was genius, this... this isn't.

    Retro AEROSMITH

    The Holy Bible is also 22yrs old, if a band doesnt evolve in that time 'grow up' even then something is wrong. I personally love this song and everything before it. The manics have had success with each release, not many bands can claim the same.

  30. SOP☼TNIA Channel [PL]

    Love this guy's voice

  31. Jimmy Brown

    pray for the silence when we look into the mirror

    what a line

  32. Martin Cotton

    HOW DO YOU KEEP COMING UP WITH SUCH POIGNANT LYRICS?

  33. Jack Molay

    A working class hero is something to be! Love the Manics......true socialists, an inspiration. This song and video represent an ideal.

    Nicholas Jenkins

    Jack Molay spot on Jack,

  34. Leon

    Andy Black advert <3

  35. Kate Prokop

    This is terrible. I demand he takes testerone gel or something .

    feritosman

    got no emotions?

  36. Huda O

    ITS OLIVER TATE

  37. IgnacioCC

    Sometimes I forget that this same band plays a couples of songs like "faster" and "archives of pain", anyway they do beautiful music like this one

    Jack Molay

    They were a different band, literally, when they did those songs. Richey was in the band, grunge was huge. The Holy Bible came out at the same time as Nirvanas In Utero. Cobain and Richey are both dead now. In many ways The Holy Bible is a long suicide note in song. It's one of the darkest albums I've ever owned, so bleak. The band couldn't have have carried on writing and performing such songs. Those songs have very dark, psychologically devastating effects. That album speaks so much of the the fear, horror and misanthropy of Richeys tormented soul. The bands follow up album 'Everything Must Go' speaks volumes about how they saw their future after Holy Bible and Richeys disappearance.

  38. Adrielly Cordeiro

    The mustache guy = Danny from My Mad Fat Diary? :o

  39. Alpha Proxy

    fucking horrible.. came here because guy from this band talked shit about slowdive. no wonder this band is horrid esp compared to genius' like slowdive

    bleep

    Listen to the Manic Street Preacher's song Faster, then proceed to sit your ass down, Jenkins.

    Mac C

    @litefade I am stronger than Mensa, Miller & Mailer. I spat out Plath & Pinter..."guitar solo"

  40. David Brown

    great song.

  41. Lita Keaton

    This band is so underrated here in a America. Love Manic Street Preachers.

    Kris Charlton

    @Keri Kidd i think they were percieved as anti-american because of the song 'ifwhiteamericatoldthetruthforonedayitsworldwouldfallapart' when its the all comsuming capitalist system that chews up and spits out the masses they hate. all the best from the u.k.

    Edward Burroughs

    +Kris Charlton They've done a lot of consumption though, haven't they?!

    Kris Charlton

    conspicuos consumption, in the best tradition of the who and jimi hendrix.

  42. Ed ward

    Good grief, this is poor effort lads. Try again. x

  43. Felipe Eduardo

    ¡Muy buen tema!

  44. Sarah Alb-V

    Did anyone notice the reference to Talking Heads or is it just me? "Is heaven a place where nothing ever happens?"

  45. Andromeda is Coming

    wow. this is the single....lamest, most cringe-inducing form of rock music I've literally ever heard in my entire life.

    somebody came onto a metal video saying it sucked and that this was better so I thought I would return the favor.

    Welsh Simon

    Time to FUCK OFF N DIE SOMEWHERE THEN AINT IT .!! :-)

    Andromeda is Coming

    @Simon Ellis how.........dare you.

    bleep

    I hate to be that one guy posting multiple comments, being a fanboy and defending...

    But by looking at the bands you've listed, never, ever try to have a conversation with either a true metal fan or a metal elitist. You'll lose your insanity, please, for the sake of your being, never claim to be 'into' metal.

    That's all

    Andromeda is Coming

    @litefade metal is still always going to be metal, but its awesome that metal has literally almost unlimited subgenres. its the most diverse type of music there is. you're speaking out of ignorance. the bands i mentioned are amazing musicians. i don't know what you consider metal, but i am going to bet anything that what you consider metal is extremely lame. 

    bleep

    @sarin royce I quite like how you called me out on being ignorant, yet your initial comment was:


    "wow. this is the single....lamest, most cringe-inducing form of rock music I've literally ever heard in my entire life."



    And then only to go onto saying that: "but I am going to bet anything that what you consider metal is extremely lame"


    For reference, bands I like and consider Metal ranges from Beyond Creation to Sleep, to a fair bit of Black Sabbath.


    You need to understand that I didn't say that these bands were bad, I just called you out on the fact that the majority of people who listen to metal bands that are heavier, technically superior (side note: I mean musically technically superior) and not over-produced will be incredibly unforgiving in hitting you with verbal attacks.


    All in all, I am open to your taste in music, but you just need to understand that attempting (and failing horrendously) at being the 'big-bad-I-am-so-much-more-edgier-than-you' metal fan will get you into all kinds of shits and giggles when you come across people who are far larger fans of the genre than you.

  46. Michael Mitchell

    ''We may write in English, but our truth remains in Wales.''

    Seriously, what an awesome, awesome fucking band. 

    Danny Muirhead

    +Michael Mitchell what a line pure genius!!

  47. Toni -Tan

    Is the bloke who keeps popping up (e 3:00 ) the one from Submarine, or does it just look like him?

  48. Woodsy Howell

    Barf. You have to have dain bramage to like this swill.

    Cerian J

    Woodsy Howell Sorry to be a grammar nazi here but it's *brain. And you say we're the ones with brain damage...

  49. kjanling

    kisses in ~10 minutes of knowing him? What a slut!

    kjanling

    @David Brown Nope, that would be:  "kisses in 10 minutes of knowing her? what a stud!"

    It's just how the society works...

    David Brown

    exactly.

    LeaveMeAloneYouTube

    +kjanling Words from an inexperienced person.

  50. Bryan Williams

    Love this video!

  51. Joe G

    Probably my favourite song from MSP,Great song :}

  52. A Dream Maker

    Is he the guy of submarine?

    David Adams

    Yes, thank you. I was trying to think of which film I saw him play in.

  53. JoeBCFC

    Been lookin for this song for a yeAr

  54. stevenARTify

    This song reminds me of the Boo Radleys - Hey boo song lol

  55. Kris Charlton

    what a fucking tune. bradfield said he knocked it up in about ten minutes. he wanted to evoke 70's era elvis. excellent.

    Preach Maniac

    agreed, works well with James' fat-Elvis period

    Simon

    Kris Charlton I was born In 80 but looks spot on. The fact he wrote it in 10 minutes only shows how talented he is. Love the Manic street preachers & how they got their name that always makes me smile

  56. Dean Jones

    Love this one

  57. Dragon Bear

    Still loving this song, cant wait for Futurology ! 

  58. Joe Gregory

    Manicstreetpeachers yeah

  59. Paulina Aguilar

    Manics With Vevo is like Rage Against The Mach.......Ups.

  60. Jacob Ehdoe

    Here because of Sjin!

  61. Indra Sumpena

     3 ways to see despair that should be the top of it

  62. Tango dancer

    This is appalling!!! Give it up guys....

    alan w

    u do better

  63. Colin Littlewood

    Terrible. The worst thing they have ever done. I used to love this band. 

    John Jones

    Actually, that would be "Miss Europa Disco Dancer"

    Amanda Sauer

    I still do.

  64. syntheticmucustwin

    Nice take on Weezer's 'Buddy Holly' video!

  65. Sandro Gonzaga

    Uma das melhores músicas que eu ouvi na vida . Clip idem . 

  66. buzzlight2nd1

    Glad to see the group moving on, after the loss of Richey Edwards. Love the song!

  67. Kiera Wedlake

    I was an extra in this video. Amazing song the guys were also really nice

    therotiv4

    what minute ??

    Abuelo

    I believe she is seen at 2:29 . A Beauty, anyway.

  68. nyan

    oliver tate from submarine

  69. moorovitch

    Still the most euphoric pop song of 2013...

  70. Vincent Gott

    Great song

  71. TheMAXAM1968

    Impossible not smiling! I don't care if it's only a pop song. It makes me :) and it's a good sensation in these troubled times. So thanks Manics and that's all.

  72. Mark Davies

    a miracle song!

  73. Steve Brightmore

    Great song.

  74. Igor Cheosorim

    Oh, reminds me of my old days... Great song and footage... Nostalgic!

  75. Alan Kilroy

    Fvcking love it.

  76. TwoForTeaa

    Oliver Tate!

  77. Blueroomexit

    Load of shit!

    Sophie Heritage

    Piss off

  78. Lynchology101

    A lot of the Vitriol came from Richie mainly i'd put this album next to Everything Must Go I guess sort of a part 2 kinda how Journal for plague lovers was Bible part 2 just the continuation of the "A design for life" theme.

  79. Ababil Ashari

    people grow up :p

  80. Mel Vicious

    Alex Tuner 1:40

  81. charlibeau

    Can't quite understand how this won best video. I liked it but it wasn't all that.

  82. Royce Williams

    ....forgot to mention: only 273 thousand views? It is a weird world that we live in, indeed. Someone could post a video of their pet and it would get more than 273 thousand views these days. Oddly enough, the Manics in toned down mode are still too rock based for all of the sub-sub-sub genres these days.

  83. Royce Williams

    Kudos to the Manics for taking chances on each of their albums. As much as I wanted this to be a clone of one of their other albums, they've made a reflective acoustic album that is great for fall time weather. Not a Saturday night album, but rather a Sunday night one.

  84. Plha Kojčice

    Good song, relax the soul

  85. victory5959

    well done boyos. I have to say you welsh have got great voices pity about your rugby haha........... just kidding.

  86. Ceri Thomas

    The digitally condensed type on the poster at 12s is mildly bothersome.

  87. revol148

    is this easy listening tune from the same band which wrote the Holy Bible album back in 1994 - surely not?

  88. Michael Seymour

    who is the girl ?

  89. totoibra1

    I thought this song was actually a joke. The real manics can be located to the right - from despair to where. Now that's a song.

  90. Yo Shu

    Impressional film.

  91. Notte dei Tempi

    Finally!!! Great song!

  92. cosenostre

    travolgente...!!...grazie..manic....grazie,....street..grazie..preachers......!

  93. Michael Seymour
