about

'This song is me in a club in Plymouth feeling awkward, and wearing the wrong jumper.'

lyrics

your town

i am single
it's my own fault
see me on the dance floor trying to look not bored

i could have her
if i really wanted
buy a choc-ice, make her think that i'm nice

oh- drinking away the dregs of a day somewhere in your town tonight
the loose and the rough
get off of the bus
somewhere in your town
your town.

crack my loose joints
queuing at the cash point
get my notes back
headed into combat

'come and make me
if you think you're so brave'
think i lost my front teeth
better call the police now

drinking away the dregs of a day
somewhere in your town tonight
the loose and the rough
are keeping it tough
somewhere in your town
your town

oh- you know it's always the same
they don't remember your name
you know it's always the same
in your town

take my smart clothes
put me on a ufo
take me out there
anywhere but right here

take me sailing
to weather never failing
through the public
send me into orbit now

i can see down
on rivers of brown
i can see your town tonight

up and away
from granite and grey
i can see your town
your town

oh- you know it's always the same
they don't remember your name
so come and take me away
from your town
