  • Cross the border,
    Into the big bad world
    Where it takes you 'bout an hour
    Just to cross the road
    Just to stumble across another poor old soul from
    The dreary old lanes to the high-street madness
    Eye fight with my brain to believe my eyes
    And it's harder than you think
    To believe this sadness
    That creeps up my spine
    And haunts me through the night
    And life is good and the girls are gorgeous
    Suddenly the air smells much greener now
    And I'm wondering 'round
    With a half pack of cigarettes
    Searching for the change that I've lost somehow

    [Chorus]
    These streets have too many names for me
    I'm used to Glenfield road and spending my time down in Ochy
    I'll get used to this eventually
    I know, I know

    Where'd the days go? When all we did was play
    And the stress that we were under wasn't stress at all
    Just a run and a jump into a harmless fall from
    Walking by a high-rise to a landmark square
    You see millions of people with millions of cares
    And I struggle to the train to make my way home
    I look at the people as they sit there alone

    Life is good, and the sun is shining
    Everybody flirts to their ideal place
    And the children all smile as a boat shuffled by them
    Trying to pretend that they've got som space

    [Chorus: x2]

    Life is good, and the girls are gorgeous
    Suddenly the air smells much greener now
    And I'm wondering 'round
    With a half pack of cigarettes
    Searching for the change that I've lost somehow

    [Chorus: x2]
