Oh nothing changes round here, oh nothing changes round here
Oh no
Oh but I see you now on the outskirts of town
But the fog gets so heavy

La la la la la

But if you're looking for comforting words, so long
Just don't tell me that you loved me, all along
But if you're looking for famous last words, so long
Just don't tell me that you loved me, all along

I saw your sister last night and we danced danced danced
That was all
But I see you now on the outskirts of town
But the fog gets so heavy

La la la la la

But if you're looking for comforting words, so long
Just don't tell me that you loved me, all along

And your face so full of glue so I booked ourselves a room
Took what every teenage boy in town wanted
And you chose me

And then you disappeared from our lives
Sacred things were on your horizon
I demanded an explanation
You said that I was not your father
And you owed me not

Oh nothing changes round here
Oh nothing changes round here

Anymore
Anymore
Anymore

La la la la la

But if you're looking for comforting words, so long
Just don't tell me that you loved me, all along
But if you're looking for famous last words, so long
Just don't tell me that you loved me, all along

Don't just don't tell me that you loved me, all along

La la la
La la la
La la la

    General CommentPerhaps what the artist aims for is to get the message of town's ennui across to it's audience. In the song, the repetition of "nothing changes around here" along with the title reinforce the boredom of it's routine. And moreover, i believe it might also try to poke some fun at the way the whole town know who's a virgin and who is not . . .
