I was half in mind I was half in need
And as the rain came down I dropped to my knees and I prayed 
I said "oh Heavenly thing please cleanse my soul
I've seen all on offer and I'm not impressed at all"

I was halfway home I was half insane 
And every shop window I looked in just looked the same 
I said send me a sign to save my life 
'Cause at this moment in time there is nothing certain in these day's of mine 

We see, it's a frightening thing when it dawns upon you 
That I know as much as the day I was born 
And though I wasn't asked (I might as well stay) 
And promise myself each and every day that is

That when you're knocked on your back an' your life's a flop 
And when you're down on the bottom there's nothing else 
But to shout to the top shout
Well, we're gonna shout to the top
We're gonna shout to the top
We're gonna shout to the top
Yeah, we're gonna shout to the top

'Cause it's a frightening thing when it dawns upon you 
That I know as much as the day I was born 
And though I wasn't asked (I might as well stay) 
And I promise myself each and every day that 

We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
Ooh, we're gonna shout to the top (shout)

So when you're knocked on your back an' your life's a flop 
And when you're down on the bottom there's nothing else 
But to shout to the top (shout)
Well, we're gonna shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)

And you're knocked on your back an' your life's a flop 
And when you're down on the bottom there's nothing else 
But to shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
I'm gonna shout to the top (shout, shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)

Yeah, shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
Shout to the top (shout)
Yeah, shout (shout to the top, shout)
Oh, shout (shout to the top, shout)

We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
Shout to the top (shout)
We're gonna shout to the top (shout)
Shout to the top (shout)
Shout to the top (shout)
Shout to the top (shout)
Shout to the top (shout)

The Style Council

The Style Council were an English band, formed in 1983 by the ex-The Jam singer and guitarist Paul Weller, with keyboardist Mick Talbot. The permanent line-up grew to include drummer Steve White and Weller's then-wife, vocalist Dee C. Lee. Other artists such as Tracie Young and Tracey Thorn (Everything but the Girl) also collaborated with the group. As with Weller's previous band, most of this London based outfit's hits were in their homeland, although the band did score six top 40 hits in Australia, and seven top 40 hits in New Zealand. more »
