I'm going back to the time when we owned this town
Down Powder Mill Lane, in the battlegrounds
We were friends and lovers and clueless clowns

I didn't know I was finding out how I'd be torn from you
When we talked about things we were born to do
We were wide eyed dreamers and wiser too

We'd go down to the rides on East Parade,
by the lights of the Palace Arcade and
Watch night coming down on the Sovereign Light Café

I'm begging you for some sign, but you've still got nothing to say
Don't turn your back on me, don't walk away
I'm a better man now than I was that day

Let's go down to the rides on East Parade,
by the lights of the Palace Arcade and
Watch night coming down on the Sovereign Light Café
Let's go down to the bandstand on the pier
Watch the drunks and the lovers appear to
Take time, just the stars at the Sovereign Light Café

I wheel my bike off the train,
Up the North Trade Road,
Look for you on Marley Lane
In every building, every street sign,
Oh why did we ever go so far from home?

You've got nothing to hide, you cant change who you really are,
You can get a big house and a faster car
You can run away boy, but you won't go far

Let's go down to the rides on East Parade,
by the lights of the Palace Arcade
Watch night coming down on the Sovereign Light Café
Stroll down to the bandstand on the pier
Watch the drunks and the lovers appear
Take time, just the stars at the Sovereign Light Café

La la la la la la la laYeah,
I'm going where the people know my name
La la la la la la la laYeah,
I'm going where the people know my name

Nostalgia | Reviewer: Georgina Taylor | 8/3/12

This song captures a time in everyones teenage years, time spent with the friends they grew up with and all the heartbreak of falling in and out of love. Weather you actually knew the sovereign light cafe or not, everyone has a place like that. I love the song and the whole sound and feel of it.

*I'm begging you for some sign, but you've still got nothing to say, don't turn your back on me don't walk away. I'm a better man now than I was that day.
