John Lydon – 1981 lyrics

I could be desperate.
I think I'm brave.
Could stay and watch you.
(repeat)

You gave me nothing, an early grave.
I'm vegetating. I want more, more, more.
I want everything in 1981.

Anywhere, any place will do.
I'm leaving england.
We're near the ending.
You gave me nothing.
No more pretending.
I'm looking forward to our parting in 1981, 1981.

We're near the ending.
I'm just pretending.
It's all been said before.

I want more, more, more in 1981, 1981, 1981.
You gave me nothing.
I want more, more, more.
I want everything in 1981.
I'm leaving england.
We're near the ending.
You gave me nothing.
No more pretending.

1981. (x6)
I want everything in 1981.
1981. (x2)
I want everything in 1981.
