The dream of all the bowlie kids that hang around here, and I'm no different from the rest
I took a bet inside the launderette, with a girl from Wallasey
Smell the air in small town, where the train line stops
Desperation is the devils work, it is the folly of a boy's empty mind
In a town so small there's no escaping you. In a town so small there's no escape from view
I'm coming over in the wrong direction, I only want to be the centre of your attention
Your obsessions get you known throughout the school for being strange, making life-size models of the Velvet Underground in clay
If I could be a song, I would be something that would snake into your room and be with you the whole night long
I got my fingers dirty at the school of rock, I got my fingers dirty so I took a walk
Take Judy, with her bow and arrow, she's a mastermind, too frumpy for the teenage population of her time
Clothes, guitar but arsenal missing one thing, exotic Glasgow chick, they call her the 'Carmen Veranda'
Hey lady, meet my mum and dad, you're a strange aberration, in this land of potted plants and boxlike houses, where the girls like mouses
He doesn't understand and he doesn't try, he knows there's something missing and he knows it's you and I
Is he your husband? Or just your boyfriend? Is he the moron who's been beating you and keeping you inside?
Next to the broker, the nurse and the drunk, I was a joker, the wannabe punk
You are in two minds, tossing a coin to decide whether you should tell your folks about a dose of thrush you got while you were licking railings
I’m going to paint the town on my days off, cold slate roofs that glisten in starlight
I'm living in the past, you're making history
I will race you up the hill, where the boy who made records out of postcard messages, and flowering cherries rain on kids like you
She gives me goosebumps, fits and malaria, funny feeling like buying whisky in a whisky bar
I'm here in a cage, with a bottle of rage and a family like the mafia
Could I write a requiem for you when you're dead? 'She had the moves, she had the speed, it went to her head'
I was living through the seconds, my composure was a mess, I was miles from tenderness, it was dark outside, the day it was lying in pieces
She's a waitress and she's got style, Sunday bath time may take a while
Like getting blood out of a stone, the city left you lost and gone
We've both been here before and no sir, we cannot ignore it
You're a star now, I am fixing peoples nails, I'm knitting jumpers, I'm working after hours
I stay in to defrost the fridge, now the kid has gone to bed, a feeling of dread.
Have you considered the way, people might react to all the things that your characters say?
I hung around with her for forty days and forty nights, it was a wilderness
