this shop sells everything
you ever really need
I'm standing looking up
at the sign above this

tweny-four months ago
the paintwork was perfect
the writing fashionable
the name, it seemed so funny
tweny-four months ago
it had so much potential
maybe that was in my head

all the people
who've done extra hours for me
all the people
who keep things ticking over
they're just friends really
but when I'm in the money
I'll say thank you
I'm pretty sure of that

it won't be long now
it's the best it's been now

this shop is all I ever wanted
it's quiet now but all the signs are good
I've dropped my prices
I've increased my hours
saved, borrowed
done without
all my time and money have gone into this
I believe the tide has turned

this shop is me
this shop is this country
it's insignificant
but feels so important
in in your heart
you don't really expect me
to succeed with this

just what exactly
do you expect me to do?

this shop is me
this shop is this country
I spend so much time looking
I can no longer see...

if in your heart
you don't really expect me
to succeed with this then
what exactly
(do you expect of me?)
do you expect of me?
(sometimes I feel so down)

it won't be long now
(can't you see I'm hurt)
it's the best it's been now

this shop sells everything...
