"The Coast Is Always Changing" as written by Duncan Robert Lloyd, Paul Anthony Smith, Thomas Alexander English, Archis Tiku and Lukas James Wooller....
I've met so many people who look the same
Most were forgotten but you still remain
Most of the time I don't care
But London so far away n when your there
And so it saddens me to say I'm only happy when I move away

I am young and I am lost
Every sentence has its cost
I am young and I am lost
You react to my ripost
We look out upon the sea
We look out upon the sea the coast is always changing
Ill bring my camera out to sea
The coast is always changing

Age makes a difference till you open your mouth
Use your time just to work things out
I no that you can't understand
When I tell you that this wasn't planned
And so it saddens me to say
I'm only happy when I move away

I am young and I am lost
Every sentence has its cost
I am young and I am lost
You react to my ripost
We look out upon the sea
We look out upon the sea the coast is always changing
We'll take the train out to sea
My heart is always changing

It won't be long before you've gone
I can't imagine leaving
I can't imagine leaving
I can't imagine leaving
I can't imagine leaving

We look out upon the sea
We look out upon the sea the coast is always changing
Ill bring my camera out to sea
My heart is always changing
We'll take the train out to the sea
My pulse is always racing
As we look out upon the sea
The coast is always changing

And though it saddens me to stay
I'm still waiting for that day

    General CommentIts about the effect of time. Evrything is constantly changing and so the good times we have as youngsters is brief and should be appretiated.

    "I am young and I am lost"

    Its a snap shot in our lifetime. I think it encourages us to enjoy life.

    "I'll bring my camera out to sea"

    General CommentActually, 'repast', too, is a word, even if it wouldn't necessarily make sense in the context of this song - it means food, or something taken as food. Shakespeare, among others, liked to use it. So, yeah, it is a word, and dropping the condescending tone seems like a good idea right about now.

    General Commenti love this song i jsut got their album and listening to this one all the time. at the mo i can relate to it so much coz im leaving home for 6 months and i think the songs about being young and changing and being scared i love the lyrics because there so good without even realising that there so good!! hee for example:

    I've met so many people who look the same,
    Most were forgotten but you still remain,

    We look out upon the sea,
    The coast is always changing,
    I'll bring my camera out to sea,
    My heart is always changing,
    My pulse was always racing,
    As we look out upon the sea,

    Age makes no difference till you open your mouth

    It won't be long before you've gone,
    I can't imagine leaving

    as you can tell im loving this band at the mo


    And so it saddens me to say,
    I'm only happy when i move away

    General CommentI saw this band last month for my birthday when they were on tour with Kaiser Chiefs and they seem like great fun. They also seem like their Geordie rivals.;)

    Anyway, when I saw them, the frontman said that this song was about travelling to the East coast.

    General Commenti agree that it should be "i am young" (whoever wrote the lyrics down put "young" the second time they wrote the chorus), and i also thought it was "you react to my repast"; is "riposte" even a word?
