"Gone Up In Flames" as written by Matthew Greener, Christopher Wheatcroft, Tom Derrett and Alistair Clewer....
Going to the race track
To try and get your money back
But caught trying to break in
But just have to say
It couldnt happen, me?

She shaved off her hair
Said that she didnt care
That 'Life is so unfair'
Oh but all she wanted
Was to be left alone

He said he missed Bliss
Smiled and left the kids
And i said this isnt it
But baby please come home
And start again

Its all he's ever wanted
Its gone up in flames
And all he's ever wanted
To never stay the same

Oh no this cant be happening
I said oh no this cant be happening

Going to the race track
To try and get your money back
But caught trying to break in
But just have to say
It shouldnt happen baby

She wore lip gloss
And cried when she got cross
And all that she had was lost
Yeah she sold it all
Oh for Pearls

He said he missed bliss
Smiled and left the kids
And i said this isnt it
But baby oh please come home
And start again

Its all he's ever wanted
Its gone up in flames
And all he's ever wanted
Could never stay the same
And all he's ever wanted
Its gone up in flames
And all he's ever wanted
Can never stay the same

    General CommentI got official lyrics from the MR management. I'm not lying. Check here if you want. forums.morningrunner.com/…

    They go...:

    Going to the race track to try and get your money back,
    You got caught trying to break in, but you just laughed and said
    It couldn’t have been me.

    She shaved off her hair, said that she didn’t care
    And that life was so unfair, and all that she wanted was to be left alone

    He said he missed bliss smiled and left a kiss and I said this isn’t it
    And wont you please come home, and start again.

    Cos all you’ve ever wanted, has gone up in flames
    And all you’ve ever wanted, can never stay the same

    Oh no, this cant be happening
    I said oh no, this cant be happening

    Going to the race track to try and get your money back,
    You got caught trying to break in, but you just laughed and said
    It couldn’t have been me.

    She wore lip gloss cried when she got cross and all that she had was lost
    She sold it all…all for pearls

    He said he missed bliss smiled and left a kiss and I said this isn’t it
    And wont you please come home, and start again.

    Cos all you’ve ever wanted, has gone up in flames
    And all you’ve ever wanted, can never stay the same

    And all you’ve ever wanted, has gone up in flames
    And all you’ve ever wanted, can never stay the same.

    General CommentSaw Morning Runner live at Crystal Palace supporting Coldplay. They were brilliant.

    I had the Drawing Shapes EP before I saw them live, now their album is definitely on my shopping list (it's due out later this year, IIRC)

    General CommentHeard these guys at the Coldplay gig at the Reebok Stadium in Bolton. Out of all their songs, this was probably the best, although they didn't look too happy that the beach ball in the crowd was getting more attention than them on stage.
