D              Gbm   G         A  
Cross the border, into the big bad world
 D                                        Gbm 
Where it takes you about an hour just to cross the road,
         G                      A  
Just to stumble across another poor old sole,
 D                               Gbm 
From the dreary old lanes to the High St madness,
 G                          A 
I fight with my brain to believe my eyes
     D                             Gbm 
And it's harder than you think to believe this sadness, 
    G                                A 
It creeps up my spine and haunts me through the night


 Bm7  
Life is good, and the girls are gorgeous,
 G  
Suddenly the air smells much greener now
 Bm7  
And I'm walking around with a half pack of cigarettes
 A  
Searching for the change I've lost somehow


 D                   Gbm     
These Streets, have too many names for me
 G                                       A  
I'm used to Glenfield Road and spending my time down in Orchy
 D                     Gbm          G       A 
I'll get used to this eventually I know, I know


 D           Gbm     G                   A 
Where'd the days go when all we did was lay
 D                                        Gbm 
And the stress that we were under wasn't stress at all,
 G                            A 
Just a run and a jump into a harmless fall
 D                                Gbm 
From walking by a high-rise to a landmark square,
         G                       A 
You see millions of people with millions of cares
 D                                  Gbm 
And I stuggle to the train to make my way home
 G                            A 
I look at the people as they sit there alone


 Bm7  
Life is good and the sun is shining,
 G 
Everybody floats to their ideal place
 Bm7  
And the children all smile as the boats shuffle by them,
 A 
Trying to pretend that they've got some space.
