"Town To Town" as written by and O'hagan....
Got a peaceful feeling
I've found the reason
For taking nothing seriously.
Its the guessing game with
Those waves of flame and,
Sick winter for a thousand years
Me and my ex-lover
Will accept each other,
Help reap the dead harvest,
Town to town.

She's nervous and her
Best friend is waiting,
She's trying to pronounce my name.
Talk all we may she
Can't but conceal
The fullness of her secret heart.
Its our lives,
Its nothing, don't touch me,
Don't call me,
I can't wake up.
Can't help you,
Someone else will,
If you just sit still.

When the daily parade of the troubles you made gets you down,
Just consider the fate of the wide open space from town to town.

Get Olso, get Glasgow
Hit Bonn and hit Bordeaux,
Fry Dresden, fry Dublin,
Why don't you call me?
I've got nobody.

When the daily parade of the troubles you made gets you down,
Just consider the fate of the wide open space from town to town.
When the daily parade of the troubles you made gets you down,
Just consider the fate of the wide open space from town to town.

    General CommentAs far as I recall, Town to Town was supposed to be a song about people moving away after (or to avoid) a nuclear war. However, there isn't much in the lyrics that make that very obvious!

    (And I think it's "Hit Bonn and hit Bootle" isnt it? (Rather than Bordeaux)

    General CommentDefinitely about Nuclear War but mixed in with other stuff.

    I'd say it was a critique of modern society and the trivialities that affect people's lives when there is so much more important things to worry about (war etc). Always saw the lines "Me and my ex-lover/will accept each other" and "why don't you call me/I've got nobody" as sardonic. Ie bombs flying around and all you can think about is shagging. Thought the nobody might have had a double meaning (no body).

    Not sure about the Town to Town bit and the fate of the wide open spaces- perhaps just areas devastated by war?
