lyrics

One after the other
For as long as I remember
I know that things are different
Since the last December
I've done a lot since then
Can't recall all that I've seen
Always heading forwards
Without really knowing what that means
I lost the map back there somewhere
Had a plan I'm sure I did
Am I supposed to be here?
Is this my dream when I was a kid?
I've decided that I couldn't really give a shit
I'm happy in my life and if that's not a dream then tell me what is

I should have played for England by now
I should have left this old town and not come back
I should have money in my pocket, a house and a wife
A job in middle management and a grown up social life
None of these things have I got
And you can keep the lot
You cannot buy what I've got
You cannot buy what I've got

The other day a friend of mine
Took me to one side and said
"If you carry on this way
You'll forever be in the red
After this is over
All you'll have are a bunch of songs
You'd better make yourself some money
Don't wait too long"
I took this friend of mine
Took him to one side and said
"I've got my own road to take
Keep your eyes straight ahead
As long as I've enough for
Pints of beer and guitar strings
As long as I am able I will play
And I will sing"

I should have played for England by now
I should have left this old town and not come back
I should have money in my pocket, a house and a wife
A job in middle management and a grown up social life
None of these things have I got
And you can keep the lot
You cannot buy what I've got
You cannot buy what I've got

One after the other
For as long as I remember
I know that things are different
Since the last December
I've done a lot since then
Can't recall all that I've seen
Always heading forwards
Without really knowing what that means
