like no other
(electronic)



an ordinary man

was not much in demand

he lives a quiet life

his wife don’t understand



but underneath it all

this is suburban hell

he’s up against the wall

you know he’s obviously unwell



she didn’t like the things he did

he said that he couldn’t live without her

made her cry just like a kid

i think this player needs a transfer



it’s a fragile situation

will he lose his head

or make a change in his location

or just go back to bed



i’ll catch you when you fall

and if you stumble, call

this driving rain has got to end

just call me when you need a friend



your life is down and out

the flame is burning out

and when you’re down it makes me suffer

you’re a girl just like no other



sometimes he feels so small

he turns to alcohol

she doesn’t like the taste

but then it’s better than his face



this connection will not mend

how i pray that you’ll be happy

but you’re in a downward trend

leave this place and make it snappy



just undo this combination

you know it’s up to you

it’s time you saved your reputation

i think it’s overdue



people throwing lives around

don’t you think it’s sad

while half the world is getting on

the other’s getting mad



people taking lives away

don’t you think it’s sad

while the world is having fun

the other half is bad



i’ll catch you when you fall

and if you stumble, call

this driving rain has got to end

just call me when you need a friend



your life is down and out

your flame is burning out

and when you’re down it makes me suffer

you’re a girl just like no other

comment
pitched somewhere between scorn and sympathy (tough love), like no other is lifted by moments of real inspiration, the delay-drenched line ‘just undo this combination’ in particular. marr kicks the song into gear with some ragged wah-wah and the energy doesn’t flag for a moment; this is an overlooked song on an overlooked album, surprisingly included on 2006’s get the message compilation.
