Lightbulb SOS Lyrics.....NIACIN

Hi Friends, I'm looking for lyrics of "Things ain't like they used to be", the great Niacin's song, which Glenn sung at his best

Due to my poor English I can't understand perfectly all the words, could you please help me to write (and subsequently sing!) them correctly?

Many thanks in advance

Cheers from Italy

ab1

Here you go ab1. This is what I hear and don't hear
Hopefully someone can fill in the blanks.

Quote:
I remember how it feels to play a fool
You know I've played that part before
When I get back on my feet again
I'll come back for more
Yeah I didn't need your company
? ? ? ? ? ? ?
I think I'm on top again
? ? ? ? ? ? ?
Well now it seems those days are gone
I think this time I might have been alone too long
A little bit too long
Years ago I wasn't nothing
Nothing for a man like me
Things ain't like they used to be (3x)
In my life

I used to walk a little different
My head held way up high
Thought that it would always be this way
For the rest of my time
Once I had a 'bout of broken heart
I didn't see - I want to hide
Something I would never ___?___
You don't hear me ___?___
Now I look around and not a soul is ___?___
It seems so empty since she's been gone
Can you hear me
Since you've been gone
There was a time we wasn't nothing
Nothing in the world like me

Things ain't like they used to be (3x)
In my life (2x)

And if I get a plan to turn away the tide
I learned my lesson
Forget about the pride
And if I had another chance to make her mine
I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be left behind
Well now it seems those days are done and gone
I think this time I might have been alone too long
A little bit too long
Years ago I wasn't nothing
Nothing for a man like me
Once upon a time I wasn't nothing
Nothing in the world I ___?___

Things ain't like they used to be (3x)
In my life
In my life

Repeat till end

Another great misheard lyric... "Eyelids of seals" by the Go Go's

Wink I see a bathroom on the right....

This may sound a bit weird...but I have found that this is a help in trying to nail down the lyrics. If you listen to a song on headphones turn the volume down and it makes the lyrics easier to understand. I know it sounds a bit weird but it works. I am sure there is a nice tidy scientific explanation as to why it works...but until Mr Wizard returns my call just give it a go...

Seriously...I am not making that up..it works!

Chip, you reminded me of the Japanese lyric sheets that come with so many albums...with missing and wrong words...you have a few of those in your collection, no doubt

Several times I've posted Trapeze lyrics that were requested and I used the lyrics that were printed in the booklets of the Japanese releases. Yes, the wrong words can sometimes be comical. But hey, gotta give the Japanese credit, at least they print the lyrics even though they might not be 100% correct, it's better than nothing.

Icon17 He said what???

Chip,

I believe that is due to the fact that the lyrics are translated phonetically by the Japanese. There is a song by Grand Funk Railroad on their "Phoenix'" album called "She Got To Move Me", the lyrics of which are mangled beyond believe by the Japanese translator on the Japanese CD...I wish I could remember all of it; something about "an octopus with a periscope hole". Really bizarre!

I have the first Whitesnake live CD on Japanese vinyl; the Hammersmith show from 1978 and they even translate DC's chatter between songs and that gets twisted up as well...

Bakin' carrot biscuits...every day...Bakin' carrot biscuits..every way...

Your are welcome Stuntman.

Haven't tried the headphone trick Bill suggested. Will give it a try this weekend.
