This Song Is About You

Lyricist: Tom Clarke    Composer: The Enemy


Half the kids who you grew up with
Were pushin prams by the time that they were just sixteen
If love is a drug then where is the cure
For the girl who used to talk to you about her dream
And all the boys with all their toys
Couldn't see the signs as we scorched out eyes with nicotine
And the grown ups said, listen to your head
But our hearts were crying out for heroes on TV screens


Now this song is about you
Now this song is about...


Changes in your mind
Changes in your life
Changes in the times
And the reason you can't sleep at night
Changes in your mind
Changes in your life
Changes in the times
And the reason you gave up the fight


Half the kids that arnt pushing prams
Are pushing pills to boys and girls who are half their age
And the pubs and clubs are full of drunks
They don't remember the day the were born or even their mum or the names
An old man sings a tune but he's drowned out by a fight next to a fruit machine
And all of this, our hearts, our nation
A total lack of civilization
Will it ever be the same


Now this song is about you
Now this song is about...


Changes in your mind
Changes in our lives
Changes in the times
And the reason you won't sleep tonight
Changes in our mind
Changes in our lives
Changes in the times
And the reason we gave up the fight


Now this song....
Is about, is about, is about you
Now this song....
Is about, is about, is about you
Now this song....
Is about, is about, is about you
Now this song....
Is about, is about, is about you
