Human League – Dreams Of Leaving lyrics

Someone stopped the clock
When we should have started early
If we miss the morning meeting
Our lives will be in danger
Someone's trying to stop us
There is someone in our party
It is someone with a grudge
And they won't let us reach the border
Our lives are in his hands
We pay with Krugerands
The currency of pain to help
Us leaving
While back in our homeland
The ones who make a stand
Are taken from their homes and
No-one hears of them again
I felt I had to come here
I thought things would be better
The situation's changed
But I find I'm still resented
Someone wants my job
It is someone in this building
Someone's spreading rumours
And I don't feel I can stay here
I think I'm going north
And now's the time to leave
The people there they say
Are good to strangers
And if I do my best
And try to settle in
I'm sure I can be just like
Someone's neighbour
I'm sure I can be just like
Someone's neighbour
