lyrics

There’s a girl in green staring vacantly
At the man in the puppet show.
She’s only ever seen little men on the silver screen.

And the dude over there with the dreads in his hair,
Blowing fire through his nose,
Was in a fight last night just for stepping on someone’s toes.

So many lives to lead and so many roads.
Sometimes it’s hard to know just which way you should go.
There’s not a day goes by when I don’t fantasise
In a thousand years they’ll take it all away.

So give it all you’ve got.
Coz tomorrow’s just another lonely day.
There’s not a day goes by when I don’t fantasise,
In a thousand years they’ll take it all away.

There’s a couple of twins knocking back the gin
Trying to drown out how they feel.
It’s been a year and a day since their old man went away.

And the bloke in the mac with the rain on his back,
Singing softly to the clouds,
Has crossed a line in his mind now he’s ten years out of time.

So many lives to lead and so many roads.
Sometimes it’s hard to know just which way you should go.
There’s not a day goes by when I don’t fantasise
In a thousand years they’ll take it all away.

So give it all you’ve got.
Coz tomorrow’s just another lonely day.
There’s not a day goes by when I don’t fantasise,
In a thousand years they’ll take it all away.
