About Never Going Nowhere

"Never Going Nowhere" was the second single released by The Bluetones from their fourth album, Luxembourg, in 2003. It reached number 39 on the UK Singles Chart. The track was later included on the band's 2006 compilation A Rough Outline: The Singles & B-Sides 95 - 03. A 7" vinyl release was planned (b/w "Suffer In Silence") and pre-orders were taken but the 7" never made it to release. It is unknown if any copies were ever pressed. CD promos featured the 69 Corp vs the Bluetones remix as the b-side, and cover art from the inside page of the Luxembourg album booklet. The song was featured on an episode of the British comedy show Teachers.

Some words will cut you
Like the sharpest blade
I don't love you anymore
I don't love you anymore
Nothing is different
But something has changed
I don't love you anymore
I don't love you anymore
As I speak these words
I cant believe what I'm saying
I don't love you anymore
I don't love you anymore
I keep my thoughts in little boxes
Labelled A-Z

Some words can break the skin
And let the daylight in
I don't love you anymore
I don't love you anymore
Your once charming foibles
Now drive me up the wall
I don't love you anymore
I don't love you anymore
I keep my thoughts in little boxes
Boxes underneath the bed
Under the bed with your photograph
And the image is fading

Time has flown
You're all alone
You've always known
Its never going nowhere
Act your age
Turn the page
Leave the stage
It's time to move on
And me and you 
How high we fly
We always knew
Its never going nowhere

I keep my thoughts in little boxes
Boxes underneath the bed
Under the bed with your photograph
And the image is fading

Time has flown
You're all alone
You've always known
Its never going nowhere
Act your age
Turn the page
Leave the stage
It's time to move on
And me and you 
How high we fly
We always knew
Its never going nowhere
