moving to the city,
was so hard to say farewell
my girlfriends took me drinking at the RSL

and i was flushed with glory
from my (?) victory
and everybody tellin' me to tell my story
i went away
the very next day
with a headache
then lost it to the motorway

and i never, ever felt so free
and i go no place that i can be

thirty weeks of struggle in the city of sin
my boyfriend finished school,
he moved up and he moved in
and his pulse comes tattooed
with the name of his crew
and a musical horn is like an 'i love you'
things are so grim
there's worse gas than him (?)
and we won't be together once we've settled in

and i got no place that i can be
and i never, ever felt so free

i don't drink,
my pulse will rocket fuel to whoever's next

    General CommentI couldn't believe this song wasn't up... I guess it's not as well known, I think it was released on the UK version of Skeleton Jar? But this is definitely one of my favorites by Youth Group. I assume it's written from the perspective of someone else, namely 'Rosie'. Anyway, these lyrics are pretty much untracible, I couldnt find them anywhere online, so I did the best I could to decifer them. If anyone has any corrections, let me know!

    General CommentThe line with the first question mark is:

    And I was flushed with glory
    From my Melon Midouri

    The second question mark sounds about right... but I've heard some of the other lyrics differently..
    "and his pulse comes tattooed" to me is "and his postcode's tattooed"
    and
    "my pulse will rocket fuel to whoever's next" should be "I pass the rocket fuel to whoever's next"
    which would make sense considering the previous line.
