The times might have changed
But it's a quarter to nine
And outside the school
They're all waiting in line
Insecure in themselves
They want to fall for someone
But if they get what they want
Then the want won't be gone
And I hope their babies are brighter than them

The tune might have changed
But this tune is mine
I got what I wanted
But I hadn't the time
If you invest in change
Interest is great
My wonderful girl
Was not gonna wait
And she's gone like rain on a river

She's gone

Whilst craving success
I carved up my time
Between falling in love
And out of my mind
Searching and hungry
But greedy and blind
To shipwreck yourself
Is a waste not a crime
And I left my love on the airport bus

Shadows of sun
Waves on the moon
The rings of a tree
The promise of soon
The bell of a church
The factory board
Loved like a king
Left like a fool
And she's gone like rain on a river

She's gone

It's stuff we always wear
What's a question with no answer
The ones that hold you down
But words I'm never going to hear

The times might have changed
But it's a quarter to nine
And outside the school
They're all waiting in line
The bell of a church
The factory board
Loved like a king
Left like a fool
And she's gone like rain on a river

She's gone...
