(Okay, okay we got a wee special surprise for ya. We just met a couple of friends down in London, down here. I?d like you to welcome on stage Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford from Squeeze. Yey!!)

I feel like I?m pounding on a big door
No one can hear me knocking
I feel like I?m falling flat to the floor
No one can catch me from falling

The hour glass has no more grains of sand
My watch has stopped no more turning hands
The crew have abandoned the ship
The lights are on but no one is in

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

I feel like I am calling on the telephone
No one can hear the ringing
I feel like I?m running up a steep hill
No one can stop me from running

The hourglass has no more grains of sand
My watch has stopped no more turning hands
The little hand shakes it?s fist
The face is hanging out on a spring

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

The hour glass has no more grains of sand
Little red grains of sand
My watch has stopped no more turning hands
Little green neon hands

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Feels like I?m calling back to the shore
No one can hear me calling
Feels like I?m falling back to the floor
No one can catch me from falling

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore,
No ones in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

(Thank you very much)
