lyrics

You and me we've been kicking around
Dreaming of leaving this one horse town
Watching and waiting for a better thing for us to do
The days go past and the dreams they fade
And all our plans get re-arranged
And none of those dreams feel like they're ever going to come true

I said, "When? When? If it can't happen now, it won't happen then.
Then? Then? If it can't happen now it won't happen then"

Every morning when we wake there's a new set of vows we take
We're not lying but the sunset says that's so
There's a path into the setting sun waiting there for everyone
If you don't run for her, she'll surely run for you

I said, "When? When? If it can't happen now, it won't happen then.
Then? Then? If it can't happen now it won't happen then"

The priest has left with the collecting plate
All his promises are out of date
You'll be waiting a long time for some saviour to return
You're stood at the bus stop in the midday sun
Stood at the bus stop but the bus don't run
You'd better pick your feet up and head on down that road

I said, "When? When? If it can't happen now, it won't happen then.
Then? Then? If it can't happen now it won't happen then"
