"The Boy's Asleep" as written by Andrew Cairns, Michael Robert Mckeegan and Martin Mccarrick....
I think we should probably call it a night now, it's just as well, cus, eh, 'cause we got a lot of things sorted out tonight that needed sorting out I suppose
I'll take a taxi home, I think I'll...

Thanks for coming
Mind your step on the way home
The roads are busy
Tonight just pick the ones you know
Thanks for coming
Stick to all the places you've been
Thanks for coming again

There's not really much difference between what you think and I think
It's just, who does it with most conviction, I suppose
But it's really hard to believe in what you have and what you're looking for

Thanks for coming, mind your step on the way home
The roads are busy, tonight just pick the ones you know
Thanks for coming, mind your step on the way home
The roads are busy, so pick the ones you know

Thanks for coming, mind your step on the way home
The roads are busy, tonight just pick the ones you know
Thanks for calling, mind your step on the way home
Find a God and thank him

Thanks for coming, mind your step on the way home
The roads are busy, tonight just pick the ones you know
Thanks for coming, mind the step on your way home
The path is crowded

The title comes from the fact it was written while then-drummer Graham Hopkins (who was a lot younger than the rest of the band) was asleep. The bits that don't start with 'Thanks for coming' are spoken, and almost indecipherable. Andy Cairns sure does mumble...
