“Sitting under the neon sign”




  “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 café 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 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 spinnin’ around
                                       
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 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 old 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
