Lucy Spraggan – The Tourist lyrics
She said she hated tourists
But she wanted to travel the world
Said the best things in life were free
Then she worked all day to feed herself

She said "you never know what you got until it's gone"
And she complained about the rain like she'd never seen the sun
She said "good things come to those who wait"
And then she waited four hours for a cancelled train

She said...
"You try and catch me, I'll never stop running
With a pound in my pocket and my life inside a bag
You try and catch me, I know where I'm going
I'll be halfway around the world before you even know I'm gone"
She said "I'm moving on"

She fell in love with a book once
She fell in love with the page
She fell in love with the author
Didn't remember his name

She read 'your soul weighs nothing but a lump in your throat'
'The one's you see less are the one's you love most'
So she burnt that book and flew down to the coast

She said...
"You try and catch me, I'll never stop running
With a pound in my pocket and my life inside a bag
You try and catch me, I know where I'm going
I'll be halfway around the world before you even know I'm gone"
She said "I'm moving on"

So she's sitting on a train with her bags at her feet
Stories entertain every pair of ears that she meets
She's got gold in her soul
What she wants, nobody knows

She's got two right feet and a bag full of clothes
She's got gold in her soul
Going nowhere slowly and that's what she needs
She's on the right track to where she'd rather be
She's got gold in her soul

You try and catch me, I'll never stop running
With a pound in my pocket and my life inside a bag
You try and catch me, I know where I'm going
I'll be halfway around the world before you even know I'm gone
She said "I'm moving on"
