Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) are a British New Wave group formed in 1978, whose founding members, Andy McCluskey (vocals, bass guitar) and Paul Humphreys (keyboards, vocals), are originally from the Wirral Peninsula, England. The band rose to fame with their fourth single "Enola Gay", which became a major hit throughout Europe in 1980, and achieved worldwide popularity the following year with their third album Architecture & Morality.

You'll never know, you never really know
When it's gonna, when it's gonna turn out right

I wanna live in a garden city
Marble and glass between heaven and hell
I wanna dream when the lights go down
I wanna save my soul, don't wanna fuck around
Trading heaven for a living in a city made of gold

I wanna be where the seasons change
Where you never just know when Christmas comes
Just to lie in a prison with our fingers on the buttons
Making crazy, crazy, crazy 'neath the burning sun
Trading heaven for a living in the palace of the old

Just know, never know, never just know
Never know, never just know
When we're gonna come back
Yeah!

All of my friends could come around
And I never really worry when Christmas comes
And we'll really have some parties and we'll really tell some stories
We're so crazy, crazy, crazy 'neath the burning sun
Trading heaven for a living when your future is as good as sold
Trading heaven for a living when we'll never, never, never grow old

Doesn't know, doesn't really know
Doesn't ever really know, you never really know
When he's going come back
When it's gonna turn out right
I wanna live, in a garden city
I wanna live, in a garden city
I wanna live in a garden city
I wanna live in a garden city
