"The People" as written by and Adam Bainbridge....
Hey Monday morning,
See what you're missing,
I can't live my life like this boy,
I said hey little lady,
See what you're missing,
I can't get enough of your love,

[Chorus: x4]
She goes
Out all alone and out on her own

How many times do,
I have to say this,
Your match is a light for me babe,
I said hey little lady,
See what you're missing,
I can't get enough of your love,

[Chorus: x4]

All alone [Repeat: x6]

The people [Repeat: x3]
Change the way you live now,
The people [Repeat: x3]
Change the way you live now,

Hey Monday morning,
See what you're missing,
I can't live my life like this boy,
I said hey little lady,
See what you're missing,
I can't get enough of your love,

[Chorus: x4]

All alone [Repeat: x6]

The people [Repeat: x3]
Change the way you live now,
The people [Repeat: x3]
Change the way you live now.

    General CommentNot sure about this one... it could be about how different life is when you are going out at night on the weekend compared to when you are at work during the week.

    "hey monday morning" - monday is the day of the week you wish the most it was still the weekend. Hes trying to say that he wishes that people could live like they do on the weekend all the time.

    General CommentI reckon its about not getting the person you love and is comparing it to other things. Like monday mornings are bad as is not getting your love.

    And she goes out alone whereas they could goout together. etc etc

    but who cares as its a top song and can mean whatever to each person

    General CommentYeah, i read it again now and its more likely about a guy that cant get a girl to go out with him, even tho they are both lonely and just keep going out alone.

    So, i would say you were pretty right Moochop.

    General Commentafter "she goes" its just a bunch of random noises.

    This song is about how he jsut wants to party, and wants to show people how good it is just to enjoy it. Monday morning just brings round another boring week, so he's saying that monday morning misses all the fun of the weekend.

    General CommentGreat song, great band. Does anyone else besides me think he's singing "I'll never party with fire" towards the very end of the song?
