...determined to prove himself as human as the rest of us, but incapable of letting us forget he's a star...
In the olden days, Robbie Williams was in a band called Take That. But it was no fun! Robbie 's entire life was what the internet generation would come to know as a colon and an opening bracket. So he hitched a lift on the Oasis tour bus, did a song that sounded like 'Cigarettes & Alcohol', and that was that. Hooray for being free! Four albums later (or five, if you...

In this bag of stuff I brought to you
You didn't mind storing it through
You would never be the trouble and strife
If I made you my Swiss army wife.
How do you rate the morning sun?
After a long and sleepless night
How many stars would you give to the moon
Do you see those stars from where you are?
If a man could beat his own fancy
Then to only breed in captivity
I've been doing what I like when I like how I like it's joyless
You laugh at us we're different
And we laugh 'cause
You're all the same
By the look on your face baby
This is a song full of metaphors
All I be needing is tobacco and draw
Better let me in to your country though
Then I can show you what you're missing me for
Stand by me, I've been stood by you for ages
Stay calm and carry on, maybe nothing's wrong
Is it the comfort of disinformation or is it the freedom that you fear?
Said I'm the angel of liberation, love, for a second I believe her
Somewhere there's a place where you can go
Someplace you can lay your heavy head down
Everybody needs somewhere to go
We don't get high to get a comedown
How do you rate
the morning sun
After a long and sleepless night
How many stars would
We're the futurists in the bistro
Where the music is for weirdos
We like it different, we like it strange
In our own way we haven't changed
The Egyptians built their pyramids
The Romans did what they did
Now everythingâs come down to this
Itâs just you and I, our kin!!!
Microwave yourself today, save you for a rainy day
Hello Deceptacon, this will not be going away
From all of us there to all over here
Sleep sleep feel the deep get
Away from the death of it all
Don't you wanna see what
You could have won.
God gave me the sunshine, then showed me my lifeline
I was told it was all mine, then I got laid on the late line
What a day, what a day and your Jesus really died for me
Then Jesus really tried for me
