"Sitting under the neon sign" (Song)



“Sitting under the neon sign”
Staying at home was all I had; I always thought that it stunk
So I thought I’d take a hike and leave, and I got really drunk
I was glad to get away from my old man; all he ever did was moan
I said I can’t handle it anymore; I’m going out on my own



I was sitting in the cafĂ© all alone; wasn’t much of a thrill
I lifted my head and looked across, I saw a beautiful girl
She looked at me and gave a smile, and then a little wave
I was going to head over and talk to her, but I just wasn’t just that brave 

        
 
Chorus
Here I am in the big bright city under the neon sign
It tells me now what life’s about that everything will be just fine
It sends a message to my soul you have to keep pushing on
I’m sitting under the neon sign not knowing what’s going on

I’m sitting under the neon sign trying to snort some coke
Not the kind that you drink, but the one that makes you boke
I’m flyin’ high as a kite, my head’s just a spinnin’ round
I know that I’m not in control I’m gonna’ hit the ground



I thought that smoking, drink and drugs was the way to go
But when I’m finished and all shot up, I feel worse than before
 The neon sign told me so that life was so much fun
But ever since I’ve touched the stuff I’m always on the run

         


Chorus
Here I am in the big bright city under the neon sign
It tells me now what life’s about that everything will be just fine
It sends a message to my soul you have to keep pushing on
I’m sitting under the neon sign not knowing what’s going on

I’m lonely as can be you know, and I’m looking for a friend
I have to find one pretty soon, or I’m going round the bend
My heart you know is heavy and it’s feeling like a stone
I miss my mum and dad you know so I’m just a going home



I think I’ll bust that neon sign for all the bad advice
The things that I’ve been doin’ now, is of my own devise
I’m heading in the wrong direction all I ever do is roam
But I think I’ll call my mum and dad ‘cause I’m just a going home




Chorus
Here I am in the big bright city under the neon sign
It tells me now what life’s about that everything will be just fine
It sends a message to my soul you have to keep pushing on
I’m sitting under the neon sign not knowing what’s going on
I miss my mum and dad you know, so I’m just a going home
