"My New Career" as written by and David Sylvian....
I never wanted to be on my own
I could be wrong
But I slipped away from home
And now I'm gone

Well, way down south
They're haveing minor ups and downs
But they are moving on ahead
In leaps and bounds

Why, boy, they're playing our song
Outside where no-one can hear
Why, boy, they're playing our song
At the start of my new career

Well it's a different walk of life
That I've come to know
Because at every port of call comes a time to go

Well they say down south
The sun won't set on my home town
It's just driving in this heat
That gets me down

Why, boy, they're playing our song
Outside where no-one can hear
Why, boy, they're playing our song
At the start of my new career

I could never hurt anyone
Least of all you

Why, boy, they're playing our song
Outside where no-one can hear
Why, boy, they're playing our song
At the start of my new career

    General CommentBeautiful song. Japan wrote possibly the world's best piece of music. The interplay between Karn's bass and Barbieri's keyboards is nothing short of amazing.
