about

A good time song that rocks along.

lyrics

I used to live in central,
Where hot neon lit the night.
I could paint the town
In red, black blue or white.
But you couldn’t find me in any bars,
Passed out on the floor.
‘Cos I was waiting for the sign to come on over,
Once you’d got in the door.

I want to be there when you get back home,
‘Cos there’s no place that I would rather roam.
I’ve got the keys so I don’t need to phone,
When I’m sick and tired of being on my own.
‘Cos it won’t be long ‘til you’ll be comin’ home.

You cooked my meals for free,
I won’t say nothin’ ‘bout the taste.
While my single bed,
In the city went to waste.

It was clear as months went by,
Where most of my time was spent.
So we thought up a good idea,
That I‘d start paying rent.

I want to be there when you get back home,
Because there’s no place that I would rather roam.
It’s not the space between the bricks and stones.
It’s a place where our young puppy love can grow.
‘Cos it won’t be long ‘til you’ll be comin’ home.

We were worried how we would cope,
If we ever reached the end of our rope.
But can’t you see how well we stack,
When we’re riding on top of each others’ backs?
