    Lyrics:
    i got two strong arms
    blessings of babylon
    with time to carry on
    and try
    for sins and false alarms
    so to america the brave
    wise men save

    near a tree by a river
    there's a hole in the ground
    where an old man of aran
    goes around and around
    and his mind is a beacon
    in the veil of the night
    for a strange kind of fashion
    there's a wrong and a right
    but he'll never, never fight over you

    i got plans for us
    nights in the scullery
    and days instead of me
    i only know what to discuss
    of for anything but light
    wise men fighting over you

    it's not me you see
    [Más Letras en
    pieces of valentine
    with just a song of mine
    to keep from burning history
    seasons of gasoline and gold
    wise men fold

    near a tree by a river
    there's a hole in the ground
    where an old man of aran
    goes around and around
    and his mind is a beacon
    in the veil of the night
    for a strange kind of fashion
    there's a wrong and a right
    but he'll never, never fight over you

    i got time to kill
    sly looks in corridors
    without a plan of yours
    a blackbird sings on bluebird hill
    thanks to the calling of the wild
    wise mens child

    near a tree by a river
    there's a hole in the ground
    where an old man of aran
    goes around and around
    and his mind is a beacon
    in the veil of the night
    for a strange kind of fashion
    there's a wrong and a right
    but he'll never, never fight over you

    Lyrics:

    I got it bad.
    You don't know how bad I got it.
    You got it easy.
    You don't know when you got it good.
    It's getting harder,
    Just keeping life and soul together.
    I'm sick of fighting
    Even though I know I should.
    The cold is biting
    Through each and every nerve and fibre.
    My broken spirit is frozen to the core.
    I don't want to be here no more.

    Wouldn't it be good to be in your shoes?
    Even if it was for just one day.
    And wouldn't it be good if we could wish ourselves away?
    Wouldn't it be good to be on your side?
    The grass is always greener over there.
    Wouldn't it be good if we could live without a care?


    You must be joking,
    You don't know a thing about it.
    You've got no problems.
    I'd stay right there if I were you.
    I got it harder.
    You couldn't dream how hard I got it.
    Stay out of my shoes
    If you know what's good for you.
    The heat is stifling,
    Burning me up from the inside.
    The sweat is coming through each and every pore.
    I don't want to be here no more.
    I don't want to be here no more.
    I don't want to be here no more.

    Wouldn't it be good to be in your shoes?
    Even if it was for just one day.
    And wouldn't it be good if we could wish ourselves away?
    Wouldn't it be good to be on your side?
    The grass is always greener over there.
    Wouldn't it be good if we could live without a care?

    I got it bad.
    You don't know how bad I got it.
    You got it easy.
    You don't know when you got it good.
    It's getting harder,
    Just keeping life and soul together.
    I'm sick of fighting
    Even though I know I should.

  • Nik Kershaw - Wouldnt It Be Good. Top Of The pops 1984

    3:49

    Great video great song recorded live in the studio from Top Of The Pops 1984. Nik Kershaw (born Nicholas David Kershaw; 1 March 1958) is an English singer-songwriter. The one time jazz-funk guitarist was a mid-1980s teen idol. His 50 weeks on the UK Singles Chart in 1984 beat all other soloists. Kershaw appeared at Live Aid, and penned hits for Let Loose, The Hollies and a No.1 for Chesney Hawkes, The One and Only.

    Although born in Bristol, Kershaw grew up in Ipswich, Suffolk, and after leaving Northgate High School in 1976 worked as a shop assistant and in the Department of Employment for several years, during which time he played guitar and sang in a number of underground Ipswich bands. However, when the last of these, Fusion, split up in 1982, he embarked on a full time career as a songwriter and performer.[1] In 1983, he signed a recording contract with MCA Records, a deal which spawned his debut single, I Won't Let the Sun Go Down on Me.[1]

    At the beginning of 1984, Kershaw released his breakthrough song Wouldn't It Be Good,[1] which reached Number 4 in the UK Singles Chart, and was a big success in Europe, particularly in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and in Scandinavia and Australia. The music video, featuring Kershaw as a chroma key-suited alien, received heavy rotation by MTV, helping the song reach #46 in the United States. He enjoyed three more Top 20 hits from his debut album Human Racing, including the title track and a successful re-issue of I Won't Let the Sun Go Down on Me. This track ultimately proved his biggest hit as a performer when it reached Number 2 in the UK.

    Kershaw's second album was The Riddle. The title track proved to be another UK and international hit single, and the album also spawned two more UK Top 10 hits, Wide Boy and Don Quixote, as it went platinum. During this time, Kershaw toured extensively with his backing band The Krew, consisting of Keith Airey, Tim Moore, Mark Price, Sheri Kershaw (his wife), and Dennis Smith.

    In July 1985, Kershaw was among the performers at Live Aid, held at Wembley Stadium. His stardom began to wane soon afterwards and he enjoyed only one more UK Top 40 hit. He continued to record and release records, and collaborated with others. Also in 1985, Elton John asked Kershaw to play guitar on John's hit Nikita.

    A cover of Wouldn't it be Good by the Danny Hutton Hitters appeared on the soundtrack of the 1986 teen romantic comedy-drama Pretty in Pink. Later the same year, his third album, Radio Musicola, was released to critical acclaim but to little commercial success. It seemed that he had outgrown his original audience with increasingly mature releases; The Works was released in 1989 to little success.

    His prowess as a songwriter served him well in 1991, when his song The One and Only appeared on the soundtrack to the British film Buddy's Song, and in the American movie Doc Hollywood. The One and Only proved to be a UK Number 1 for the star of Buddy's Song, Chesney Hawkes. In 1993, The Hollies had a minor hit with another of Kershaw's songs, The Woman I Love. During the mid 1990s he also wrote and produced material for the boy band Let Loose, with two of the tracks (Seventeen and Everybody Say Everybody Do) achieving reasonable success.

    1999 saw the release of 15 Minutes.[1] Kershaw revealed that he decided to record the tracks himself, when he could not envisage them being recorded by other artists.[4] The album spawned two singles, including What Do You Think Of It So Far?, a song described as an elegant and soaring ode to the transience of time, infused with both self-doubt and an acceptance of life that can only come with maturity.

    The follow-up album, To Be Frank, was released in 2001. Over the years, Kershaw has collaborated on albums with artists such as Elton John, Bonnie Tyler, Tony Banks, Les Rythmes Digitales, Michael W. Smith and Imogen Heap.

    In 2005, Kershaw released Then And Now, a collection of earlier material with four new tracks. In 2006, he completed another solo album, You've Got to Laugh, available only through his website or digitally through iTunes. This album contained twelve tracks and was released on the musician's own label, Shorthouse Records. Neither Then And Now nor You've Got To Laugh was promoted by a tour. The year also saw the digital re-release of his 1980s back catalogue including The Riddle, Radio Musicola and The Works.

    Kershaw performed at Fairports Cropredy Convention on the 15 August 2009 and the Rewind Festival on 23 August 2009, on Temple Island Meadows at Henley-on-Thames. Kershaw also performed at The New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich on 15 November 2009.
