Hooks in You - The Lyrics

'I feel so strange what's wrong with me?'
You've got a problem that you can't see
But I've got a feeling that the rumours are true
I see the girl's got a hook in you

You carry on believing
That you can take or leave it
Now who are you deceiving
Cause when its own up time
She's in back of your mind

She's got her hooks in you

You said you'd never let it happen again
You spend your money and you're deeper in
Your fair-weather friends call two by two
To let you know what's wrong with you

But now your heartbeat's thumpin'
You watch your nerve ends jumpin'
Well I can tell you somethin'
When it's own up time
You're gonna toe the line

She's got her hooks in you
She's got her hooks in you
She's got her hooks in me too

'I feel so strange what's wrong with me?'
You've got a problem that you can't see
But I've got a feeling that the rumours are true
I see the girl's, I see the girl got a hook in you
[She's got her hooks in you]

HOOKS IN YOU

From the compilation CD: "A singles Collection":
Februari '89. The Musc Farm. The days were spent jamming in the studio and drinking fresh coffee in the lounge next door. On one such afternoon I was wrestling with the cafetiere plunger when I heard that guitar riff coming through the wall. I was perusing a fax from the ever-creative John helmer and there was this line 'when the fear gets a hook in you...' The song unfolded in my head, right there and then and, in about an hour, we had the basic structure nailed. We all wondered whether it was too 'straight ahead' but always liked its attitude... You have to listen to it loud, really... (Steve Hogarth).

‘fair-weather friends’
This is based on an old nautical term, ‘fair-weather sailors’. Fair weather sailors were happy to be upon the water when they knew that the sailing would be easy and fun, but would refuse to go sailing when it was likely to be a bit more dangerous, or difficult.
