Patterns

New Authorised Biography out 18 March 2021

All or Nothing, Simon Spence’s oral history biography, is drawn from over 125 interviews with those who knew Marriott intimately: his wives, children, bandmates and closest friends, managers, record producers, record label bosses and his fellow musicians. Included are scores of people who have never told their story before. From his child star beginnings to his battles with drug addiction and untimely death in a housefire, All or Nothing is a visceral and unflinching account of Steve Marriott’s extraordinary and often troubling life.

Lyrics

Patterns

I see crazy patterns everytime I look your way
I can feel those crazy patterns forcing me to stay
Patterns in the womans hands that weren't there yesterday
Patterns all the way
Patterns all the way.

Your rosy eyes are closing and you're staring at the door
The sun is slowly rising and you're staring at the floor
Patterns in the morning sky that weren't there yesterday
Patterns all the way
Patterns all the way.

Ah - ah - ah ah
Patterns, patterns.
Ah - ah - ah ah
Patterns, patterns.

Patterns in the way you look that weren't there yesterday
Patterns all the way
Patterns all the way.

Ah - ah - ah ah
Patterns, patterns
Ah - ah - ah ah
Patterns, patterns.
