Faded Glamour
THE TRUTH IN MY REFLECTION IS SOMETIMES HARD TO LOOK AT
I CAN'T STOP MOVING FORWARDS, IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FAR I LOOK BACK
I CAN DREAM AND DREAM, AND I CAN WISH
I CAN SCREAM BUT I'M SURE THERE'S NO-ONE LEFT TO LISTEN

AS THE SUN LEAVES THIS PLACE AND THE SHADOWS GROW LONG
ALL THE PRETTY LIGHTS LEFT TO SHINE TO NO-ONE ALONG THE PROM
THE BARS FALL SILENT, THE SHUTTERS CLOSE DOWN
ON THE FADED GLAMOUR OF A SEASIDE TOWN

THE ORANGE RUST STREAKS STAIN PEELING, UNCARED-FOR WALLS
THE LONELINESS IN MY FOOTSTEPS ECHOES THROUGH US ALL
SO I HURRY THROUGH THE BACKSTREETS TO THE WARMTH OF THE CROWD
BUT AS I TURN THE CORNER ON THE HIGH STREET
THERE'S NO-ONE AROUND
THERE'S NO-ONE LEFT HERE AT ALL
THERE'S NO-ONE LEFT HERE AT ALL

AS THE SUN LEAVES THIS PLACE AND THE SHADOWS GROW LONG
ALL THE PRETTY LIGHTS LEFT TO SHINE TO NO-ONE OUT ALONG THE PROM
THE BARS FALL SILENT NOW, THE STORM SHUTTERS COME CRASHING DOWN

ON THE FADED GLAMOUR OF A SEASIDE TOWN
ON THE FADED GLAMOUR OF A SEASIDE TOWN

THE FADING LAUGHTER ON THE MERRY-GO-ROUND
THE FADING LAUGHTER ON THE MERRY-GO-ROUND
