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  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  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
 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

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  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
 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
