Lyrics

I'm always on the outside looking in
It's where I've always been
But the edges where all the sparks fly
When the wheels spins

I swear someone is leaving messages for me
Under my feet
In bubblegum on the sidewalks of my street
On the sidewalks of my street

Deep down I know I should leave the past behind
Maybe in time
If only I could on learn to let go
Of the hand that first held mine

Took a walk down memory lane
Just to see what still remained
Only to find out
Just about everything had changed

We will spend time and we will divide
We will disappear to two different sides
Now I hope that the world in which you find
Yourself is better than the one you leave behind

One day we'll return and we'll take a look around
See the me and you of every town
The dream is who are yet to learn that everyone
Will try to shoot them down

Spin their guts down the radio wire
Like preaching to the Christmas choir
The day you win and piss on you
Even if you won't fire

We will spend time and we will divide
We will disappear to two different sides
But I hope that the world in which we find
Ourselves returning to is better than the one we left behind

Better than the one we left behind
Is better than the one we left behind
Better than the one we left behind

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
