Shark Island - Lyrics question for the experts


Recommended Posts

Hey all, I'm pretty new the board as you can see. Not sure if I am supposed to introduce myself before posting but if so, I guess I broke that rule already.


So I had a question for the masses. On Shark Island's "Law Of The Order" cd I am sure a lot of you are familar with the song Somebody's Falling. They were kind enough to include the lyrics, BUT this song has an intro to which the lyrics are not written. Here is what I can and cannot (?) understand:


Time to move her body's shakin'

As the cold cold sweat begins to pour

?????????????? feeling

A drug to potent to ignore

Just you wait and see

She ?????????????????

Love will turn the key, c'mon


So the question is obvious by now, what are they saying? And of course correct me if I have the other parts wrong.

Thanks and look forward to browsing the board now and then.

welcome to the boards!!


to answer your question, the first line is "you're holding back an honest feeling" and the second is "she looks like a ?????"


i cant for the life of me figure out the last part -_-


actually sounds like "she looks like a man from himogreedy" to me, but that cant be right :unsure:

have you given it a google?


Oh yeah, but then again I didn't go past the first couple of pages of results. After some searching I figured it was just a little too obscure so I thought I would try here. I even went to the Shark Island home page figuring maybe I could be so bold as to shoot the site admin an email and see if they might actually answer....but I didn't see a contact section on website. Oh well...

Old topic but true lyrics found:


Time to move,

everybody shakin'

As the cold, cold sweat begins to pour

On my back and on the ceiling

A drunk too potent to ignore

Guess you didn't see

She looks like that from hearing breathing

Lovin' turn the key

Where did you find those? Too many lyrics sites post lyrics as they were misheard by the person transcribing them.


I've always heard it as this:


Time to move her body's shakin'
As the cold cold sweat begins to pour
I'm holdin' back an honest feeling

A drug to potent to ignore
Just you wait and see
She looks like that from heavy breathing

Love will turn the key

    • I think most people know my stance on these two. I love LA Guns and think Tracii is one of the best guitarists to come out of the hair metal scene, and while I like Stryper I have really gone off them due to Michaels compulsion to release new material every second Wednesday. I have not bought the last 2 or 3 Stryper albums, and a bunch of other stuff he is involved in because of this. Hell, didnt even pick the first Sunbomb album up til early this year and only then it was because I got it for £5 instead of the usual £13 to £15 that Frontiers CDs usually cost. That album did not impress me. Musically it was tight but Sweets vocals were pretty "meh", and sounds like they are gonna be even worse on this album. Have to agree to what has already been said, but I can barely even understand what he is singing. Now while I am fine with listening to foreign language songs, if a singers native tongue is English, I wanna be able to understand what he is singing. Fuck me, there are death metal bands out there easier to understand than this. If I didnt know the song title, I would think it was called I'm bating bulls yeah
    • That Sunbomb release was soo bad that I can't believe there's gonna be another one.

    • Sorry, but those vocals are not good at all...

    • It’s not a “you” problem; I could barely make out a word while listening to “Unbreakable” last night. A lyric video is definitely necessary when listening to MS these days. Still, even not having a clue what he was singing for the most part, this is better than pretty much everything off the first Shitbomb album. 
    • Enjoying this one, for defs their best release and they wear their influences firmly on their sleeves , mixing bands like Van Halen/Whitesnake/Treat/Pretty Maids/Magnum so whats not to like  
    • I didn't make the connection until a couple of days ago. This is the previous group of Tobias from Nestor.        
    • I miss the days when I could actually understand what Michael Sweet was singing.  Not sure if that's a "me" problem or a "Sweet" problem...
    • Lyric video for 'Unbreakable'.
