Teenage Fanclub - I Don't Want Control Of You Lyrics




I don't want control of you
Doesn't matter to me
The very heart and soul of you
Are places I wanna see

Everyday I look in a different face
Feelings getting stronger with every embrace

I don't want a world of pain
Staring at every tear
Don't want this love to stay the same
Growing with every year

Everyday I look in a different face
Feelings getting stronger with every embrace

Tired of situations
That mean nothing to me
You've been an inspirational figure for me

Everyday I look in a different face
Feelings getting stronger with every embrace

I don't want control of you
Doesn't matter to me
I want this love to stay the same
Growing with every year

Everyday I look in a different face
Feelings getting stronger with every embrace

  1. Zoran Sulc

    I'm 67 now - heard this while standing in HMV about 10 years ago and bought it immediately - keep coming back to it - outstanding sound and meanings. A song for a lifetime!

  2. Chrisbajs

    Somebody has heard The Moody Blues. ;-P

  3. Louis Filliger

    what a pop song

  4. José Aquino

    LETRA (ES)
    No quiero controlarte
    No me importa
    Tu propia alma y tu propio corazón
    Son lugares que quiero visitar

    Todos los días ver un nuevo semblante
    Que los sentimientos se vuelven más fuertes con cada abrazo

    No quiero un mundo de dolor
    Con desesperación en cada lágrima
    No quiero que este amor siga siendo el mismo
    Sino que cresca con cada año que pasa

    Todos los días ver un nuevo semblante
    Que los sentimientos se vuelven más fuertes con cada abrazo

    Cansado de las situaciones
    Que no significan nada para mi
    Has sido una figura inspiradora para mi

    No quiero controlarte
    No me importa
    Tu propia alma y tu propio corazón
    Son lugares que quiero visitar

    Todos los días ver un nuevo semblante
    Que los sentimientos se vuelven más fuertes con cada abrazo

  11. dazzlingdublinblue1

    Such a great band, such great songs!

  12. Agustin Gallagher

    una de las mejores canciones.!! tiene que existir una persona que lo subtitule

  13. Ricardo César

    TF never lets you down!

  14. Ryungun Rie

    Why do scots and englishmen sound american when they sing? One of life's mysteries. LOL

    uvarvu1

    ever heard the proclaimers or chas and dave

  15. richard mullins

    What kind of piece of shit would say to a woman "I don't want to control you"? How very reassuring to have someone say that to you. Wouldn't you be well advised to steer well clear of such a person?

  16. tom cass

    good god!

  17. Ujjyan Sanyal

    I don't want control of you
    Doesn't matter to me
    The very heart and soul of you
    Are places I wanna see

    Everyday I look in a different face
    Feelings getting stronger with every embrace

    I don't want a world of pain
    Staring at every tear
    Don't want this love to stay the same
    Growing with every year

    Everyday I look in a different face
    Feelings getting stronger with every embrace

    Tired of situations
    That mean nothing to me

    Erik Chagas

    Wondering the same thing here

  27. blackburnrfc1

    Definitely about his daughter. As a father of a daughter this song is amazingly poignant. Could Norman Blake possibly be a better person than he is a songwriter ?

  28. A Kentish Bell

    Takes me right back! Used to listen to the album on repeat. One of my all time fave indie bands.

  29. Alberto Soto

    Great Band! Great influence to my own music :)

  39. adriano alexandre

    Uma banda dessa não tem tanto reconhecimento, Tanto lixo musical e isso não é gigante, pelo menos aqui.
