I was half in mind, I was half in need,
And as the rain came down, I dropped to my knees and prayed
I said "oh Heavenly thing, please cleanse my soul,
I've seen all on offer and I'm not impressed at all".

I was halfway home, I was half insane,
And every shop window I looked in just looked the same
I said send me a sign to save my life
'Cause at this moment in time there is nothing certain in
These day's of mine

Ya see it's a frightening thing when it dawns upon you
That I know as much as the day I was born
And though I wasn't asked (I might as well stay
An) promise myself each and every day, that,

When you're knocked on your back, an' your life's a flop
And when you're down on the bottom there's nothing else
But to shout to the top, shout
