White Town – Going Nowhere Somehow lyrics

Take a look at where you're going
Do you know where you come from?
Seems like you've spent your life just
Searching, in the length of just one song

But you know you're going nowhere
Like so many of your age
This has gone on far too long now
To be dismissed as another phase

Well you can turn the clock back
Pretend that you're still young and
Unaware. But everyone that you lack
Weighs upon your mind, when she's not there

I don't want to break your heart,
I don't want to let you down
It's just that I always thought
Life would be more than just
Going nowhere somehow.

Now your friends are disappearing
They're getting scarcer day by day
You've only got yourself to blame for
That, you always wanted things that way
Cos it's easier being lonely
Than being let down again and again
When you're standing on edge of
Things, it means you never have to pretend.

Well you can turn the clock back
Pretend that you're still young and
Unaware. But everyone that you lack
Weighs upon your mind,
When she's not there

I don't want to break your heart
I don't want to let you down
It's just that I always thought
Life would be more than just
Going nowhere somehow.
