A little small talk, a smile and baby I was stuck"

When I called you last night from Glasgow

Wishing every show was the last show"

Slightly worn, but dignified, and not too old for sex

We're still striving for the sky,

Got taste for humble pie"

When I know the time is right for me

I'll cross the stream — I have a dream"

The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry"
