Victorious Lyrics

The following are the lyrics for all the songs featured on Wolfmother’s fourth studio album, Victorious. All lyrics adapted from the album’s official booklet.

1. The Love That You Give

You set your sight so high you cannot start
People talk about you and they pull you apart

You need to be there
You need to make it right

The road is winding and the mountains are rough
The world is calling and it can be so tough

You need to be there
You need to make it right

With the love that you give
With the love that you give

(You need to be there)
(You need to make it right)

With the love that you give
With the love that you give

So many problems you don’t know where to start
Someone mislead you and they’ve broken your heart

You need to be there
You need to make it right

With the love that you give
With the love that you give

2. Victorious

It seems the competition is riding on her tail
It seems that they were hoping she, hoping she would fail
The time has come to raise our gauntlets to the sun
She will prove herself worthy, she will be the one

She will be victorious
Hate won’t get the better of us
Her ways are mysterious
‘Cause she will be victorious

It seems that they are plotting all, all of our destruction
With the things that they have made around their own construction
Can’t you see that we are all the masters of our destiny?
And she won’t be called the victim of your fading memory

She will be victorious
Hate won’t get the better of us
Her ways are mysterious
‘Cause she will be victorious

Don’t you ever get tired and feel like giving up?
Don’t you ever feel like, like you’ve had enough?
Don’t you ever get tired of wondering what’s wrong or right?
Don’t you ever get tired and feel like giving up?

It seems that others thought they could take their sweet time
Sipping cocktails in the sun, enjoying the sunshine
She can’t wait to unleash, unleash all her rage
With an electric guitar and blow them off the stage

She will be victorious
Hate won’t get the better of us
Her ways are mysterious
‘Cause she will be victorious

‘Cause she will be victorious

3. Baroness

He lives with peasantry she lives with a higher class
She sleeps in a mansion whilst he’s sleeping on the grass
Coming out of the darkness with the love for the baroness

Tonight tonight tonight
Gonna leave it all behind
Tonight tonight
Could you be my valentine?
Tonight tonight
Where the stars are meant to shine
Tonight

Nobody ever sees her she lives behind closed doors
He has no authority he’s the one they all ignore
Coming out of the darkness with the love for the baroness

Tonight tonight tonight
Gonna leave it all behind
Tonight tonight
Could you be my valentine?
Tonight tonight
Where the stars are meant to shine
Tonight

Don’t listen to no one
They’re never gonna let you out
Don’t listen to no one
They’re never gonna work it out
Work it out

Tonight tonight tonight
Gonna leave it all behind
Tonight tonight
Could you be my valentine?
Tonight tonight
Where the stars are meant to shine
Tonight

Tonight
Tonight

4. Pretty Peggy

I will stand here
In the pouring rain
Just to see your face again

Pretty Peggy
I used to know
Where have you gone where did you go?

Take my hand
Give me a chance
Can I have you just for one dance?

They say I am
But a foolish man
Can I be your fool and take your hand?

We will stand tall
We will never fall
Pretty Peggy
We could have it all

(Woah woah woah)

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I will take them all and give them to you

I will stand here
In the pouring rain
Just to see your face again

Take my hand
Give me a chance
Can I have you just for one more dance?

They say I am
But a foolish man
Can I be your fool and take your hand?

We will stand tall
We will never fall
Pretty Peggy
We could have it all

We will live there
Without no care
Pretty Peggy
Can I take you there?

(Woah woah woah)

Pretty Peggy
Was her name
Where have you gone

Do you feel the same?
(Woah woah woah)
Do you feel the same?
(Woah woah woah)
Do you feel the same?
(Woah woah woah)

(We will stand tall)
(We will never fall)
(Pretty Peggy)
(We could have it all)

Do you feel the same?
(Woah woah woah)

(We will live there)
(Without no care)
(Pretty Peggy)
(Can I take you there?)

5. City Lights

Those city lights that led you all this way
Where did they go tonight?
The sun is in my eyes and I need to find
My new disguise

See the magic shining in your eyes
That you’re looking for
Tonight

You forgot
You forgot
You forgot about those city lights

The multi-talented minions
Building mansions without doors
The neanderthal is dancing on his
Technicolour floor

See the magic shining in your eyes
That you’re looking for
Tonight

You forgot
You forgot
You forgot about those city lights

You forgot
You forgot
You forgot about those city lights

The street sweeper is watering flowers
That you photographed last night
The butterfly has landed on the
Psychedelic satellite

See the magic shining in your eyes
That you’re looking for
Tonight

You forgot
You forgot
You forgot about those city lights

You forgot
You forgot
You forgot about those city lights

You forgot about those city lights
You forgot about those city lights

6. The Simple Life

Living from day to day
Casting your worries away
Selling a crystal necklace
Roaming from place to place

She’s looking for
The simple life
She’s looking for
The simple life

Each moment is a gift
She’s asking for a lift
Take one look in her eyes
Into the simple life

She’s looking for
The simple life
She’s looking for
The simple life

(She’s looking for)
Living from day to day
(The simple life)
Casting your worries away
(She’s looking for)
Take one look in her eyes
(The simple life)
Into the simple life

Into the simple life
Into the simple life

7. Best of a Bad Situation

She fell in love with a Hong Kong sunset
Just the other day
She fell in love with a brand new concept
Made me king for a day

A king for a day
A king for a day
Now I gotta pay

I made the best of a bad situation
Now it’s time to go
I made the best of a bad situation
Now I guess I know

I walked around for a day or two
With cold and sleepy eyes
I saw the vampires gather round
With their alibis

With their alibis
With their alibis

I made the best of a bad situation
Now it’s time to go
I made the best of a bad situation
Now I guess I know

I spent some time feeling sore
I spent some time feeling slow
She wouldn’t give me the time of day
And now she’s gone away

Now she’s gone away
I just don’t know what to say

I made the best of a bad situation
Now it’s time to go
I made the best of a bad situation
Now it’s time to go
I made the best of a bad situation
Now I guess I know

I made the best of a bad situation
Now I guess I know
I made the best of a bad situation
Now I guess I know
I made the best of a bad situation
Now I guess I know
I made the best of a bad situation
Now I guess I know

8. Gypsy Caravan

I’ve been living on top of the mountain high
And I don’t think I’m ever coming down
I’m looking at things that seem to catch my eye
Wandering around from town to town

Won’t you take me to the
To the gypsy caravan
(To the gypsy caravan)
We could live together
Where the ocean meets the sand
(To the gypsy caravan)

Won’t you take me to the
To the gypsy caravan
To the gypsy caravan

Looking at things that try to catch your eye
Things that do appear from times before
The bolts of lightning try to strike you down
The behemoth is awaiting at the door

Won’t you take me to the
To the gypsy caravan
(To the gypsy caravan)
We could live together
Where the ocean meets the sand
(To the gypsy caravan)

Won’t you take me to the
To the gypsy caravan
To the gypsy caravan

I see the gypsy caravan arrive
I wonder where it’s gonna go

Won’t you take me to the
To the gypsy caravan
(To the gypsy caravan)
Won’t you take me to the
To the gypsy caravan
(To the gypsy caravan)

Won’t you take me to the
To the gypsy caravan

9. Happy Face

We were on the rise of it all
Everything’s beginning so small
We were going around and around
Following the only sound yeah

Everything falls into place
When she puts on her happy face
Everything falls into place
When she goes to her happy place for me

For me

Listening to nature’s call
Watching as the trees grew tall
They thought they’re above it all
Never thinking they could fall

Everything falls into place
When she puts on her happy face
Everything falls into place
When she goes to her happy place for me

Everything falls into place
When she puts on her happy face
Everything falls into place
When she goes to her happy place for me

10. Eye of the Beholder

Sitting in the far horizon
Evergreens across the border
Can you see a different story?
With the failure and the glory

The truth is in the eyes of the beholder
The truth is in her eyes when you hold her

Everywhere you turn there’s people
They got their ways that can be lethal
You wonder how could this be true
When you see the things they do

The truth is in the eyes of the beholder
The truth is in her eyes when you hold her

(The truth is in the eyes of the beholder)

Show your papers to the officer
You’re an alien foreigner
They ask for this and they give you that
Now you leave you’re turning back

(The truth is in the eyes of the beholder)
Now you leave you’re turning back
(The truth is in the eyes of the beholder)
Now you leave you’re turning back

11. Remove Your Mask

Yours is a history that’s written in stone
There was a lady who had built her own throne
You could have anything that you ever asked
To live in the moment and remove your mask
(Remove your mask)

I see you gathering up alibis
Never removing your disguise
I see your eagerness to wonder why
I see the crimson in your eyes

Remove your mask
(Remove your mask)

You built a plastic monument for all
You choose religion never showing your soul
Try to deny yourself and forget the past
You fear the moment when you remove your mask
(Remove your mask)

I see you gathering up alibis
Never removing your disguise
I see your eagerness to wonder why
I see the crimson in your eyes

Remove your mask
(Remove your mask)

I see you gathering up alibis
Never removing your disguise
I see your eagerness to wonder why
I see the crimson in your eyes

Remove your mask
Remove your mask
Remove your mask
Remove your mask

12. Wedding

Slip into another place
Another time another phase oh yeah
Everything is turning round
You look away it’s all around oh yeah
Oh yeah

Take away this other place
And change it to a slower pace oh yeah
They got the writing on the wall
They look into the crystal ball oh yeah
They see it all

You find yourself up high
The sky is moving oh so high
The cosmic dancer is awaiting
For some peace of mind

The sun was high they wondered why
They had to try something new oh yeah
They learned to sing they learned to dance
They’re hoping for a second chance oh yeah
Oh yeah

You find yourself up high
The sky is moving oh so high
The cosmic dancer is awaiting
For some peace of mind

You find yourself up high
The sky is moving oh so high
The cosmic dancer is awaiting
For some peace of mind

Peace of mind
Peace of mind
Peace of mind
Peace of mind
