#7: Sovereign Light Cafe – Keane

I really love the vibes from this song as well as the lyrics.
———————————————————————-

I’m going back to a time when we owned this town
Down Powder Mill Lane and the battlegrounds
We were friends and lovers and clueless clowns

I didn’t know I was finding out how I’d be torn from you
When we talked about things we were gonna do
We were wide eyed dreamers and wiser too

We’d go down to the rides on East Parade
By the lights of the Palace Arcade and watch night
Coming down on the Sovereign Light Café

I’m begging you for some sign but you still got nothing to say
Don’t turn your back on me, don’t walk away
I’m a better man now than I was that day
Let’s go down to the rides on East Parade
By the lights of the Palace Arcade and watch night
Coming down on the Sovereign Light Café
Let’s go down to the bandstand on the pier
Watch the drums and the lovers appear to take turns
As the stars of the Sovereign Light Café

I wheel my bike off the train, up the north trade road
And look for you on marley lane in every building and every street sign
Oh why did we ever go so far from the road

But you’ve got nothing to hide, you come to change who you really are
You can get a big house and a faster car
You can run away boy but you won’t go far

Let’s go down to the rides on east parade
By the lights of the palace arcade and watch night
Coming down on the Sovereign Light Café
Let’s go down to the bandstand on the pier
Watch the drums and the lovers appear to take turns
As the stars of the Sovereign Light Café

La la la la la la la la la yeah, yeah
I’m going where the people know my name

Parting ways

Today was the last lesson.
The last lesson with him.

I was with a friend on my way home when I met him with his group of friends.

We talked for a while.
He introduced me to “somewhere in neverland” by all time low. We’re both avid fans.

I went home and played the song.
Halfway through, I just couldn’t stop the tears from falling.
I could feel my heart sinking, sinking.

Say goodbye to the halls and the classes
Say hello to a job and the taxes
The weekends with friends spilling into 9 to 5 routine

Tell me how you feel over and done with
Like your life is a map with no compass to guide
At the bar drinking too much
We sing along to “forever young”

So here we go again
Wishing we could start again

Wendy run away with me
I know I sound crazy
Don’t you see what you do to me
I want to be your lost boy
Your last chance, a better reality

Wendy we can get away
I promise if you’re with me say the word and we’ll find a way
I can be your lost boy your last chance your “everything better” plan
Somewhere in Neverland
