Keane Sovereign Light Cafe Lyrics

Last updated: 05/08/2012 11:00:00 AM

I'm going back to the time when we owned this town
In the part that we live, in the battlegrounds
We were friends and lovers and clueless clowns

I didn't know what you thought of that night I was torn from you
When we thought about things we were gonna do
We were wide eyed dreamers and wiser too

Go down to the rides on east parade,
by the lights of the palace arcade
Watch night going down on the Sovereign Light Café

I'm begging you for some sign, but you've still got nothing to say
Oh I'm turning back home and I'm walking away
I'm a better man now than I was that day

Go down to the rides on east parade,
by the lights of the palace arcade
Watch night coming down on the Sovereign Light Café
Go down to the bandstand on the pier
Watch the drunks and the lovers appear
Take time, just the stars and the Sovereign Light Café

I wheel my bike off the train,
Up the North Trade Road,
Look for you along the way
In every building, every streetlight
Oh why did we ever go so far from home?
We keep on leaving there

Now no traces of who you 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 going 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 and the Sovereign Light Café
