lyrics

I can think of 100 reasons why i'm still here,
Of all paths to take why did i choose to stay?
Apathetic & stoned, it's pathetic i know, i could've gone anywhere.
I stopped making ends meet, took to life on these streets, now i won't be going.

I'll walk this towns backstreets,
The alleyways & car parks no one ever sees,
No, i won't be going anywhere.

I can think of 1000 stories that i could tell,
Though the years would appear to have clouded the facts from truth.
Tired & old, I'm growing cold, the fire's gone out now.
Who'll look after me when i grow weary? Does anyone care?

I'll walk this towns backstreets,
The alleyways & car parks no one ever sees,
No, i won't be going,
No, i won't be going anywhere.

(i won't be going)
I dreamt I would leave,
(I won't be going)
The things i could've seen,
(I won't be going anywhere)
Exist now only in my dreams.

Cos now I walk these streets alone,
Silently, patiently waiting, for what? No one knows. .
I lost my way so long ago.
And now i haunt these streets a ghost,
I waited too long yes i died many years ago,
This old town she took my soul.

I'll walk this towns backstreets,
The alleyways & car parks no one ever sees,
I'll stand back in the shade,
Not coming out but not fading away,
No, I wont be going,
No, I wont be going,
No, I wont be going anywhere.
