Growing up gets me down

From the knees of my nose to the belly of my toes

A bullet from a shooting star

Birth, death and a midlife crisis

A pound of flesh for 50p

Six pins and half a dozen needles

Take my lighting but don't steal my thunder

Telling the truth through false teeth

Pick yourself up and pull yourself together

Under the weather but over the moon

Blood, sweat and tears with a twist of lemon

A hole in a bag of nerves

Fighting fire with ice cream

Under the thumb to hide from the fingers
