At the factory gate he studies her expression
At the factory gate he clocks in late
In the living room he offers her more coffee
In the living room she still has a chance

At the factory gate he asks for her permission
At the factory gate he stands and waits
Outside the living room she sees her future but
In the living room they just sit and talk talk
At the coal face the workers dig for gold
And at the corner shop the women wait for news

STANDING IN THE RAIN DREAMING OF A HOLIDAY,
WAITING IN THE BUS QUEUE
DREAMING OF A BRIGHT NEW DAY
AT THE FACTORY GATE

At the factory gate they change direction
At the factory gate they stand apart
In the living room he grows impatient
In the living room she turns away
And at the coal face the workers dig for gold
And at the corner shop the women search for clues

STANDING IN THE RAIN DREAMING OF A HOLIDAY,
WAITING IN THE BUS QUEUE DREAMING OF A BRIGHT NEW DAY
AT THE FACTORY GATE
