He wants to live fast, die young, get drunk
He wants to tell the "Oh world up yours"
Don't wanna be last left on the shelf
Gotta do it, gotta do it for himself

Don't wanna meet girl, get house, have kids
Don't wanna give himself no five year plan
He wants to hold out 'til he has to
He wants to hold out 'til he gets his chance
His chance to dance...

Oh Nigel, where've you been?
She said you're wonderful, as you are
Over there, thinking your life away
Pushing the love away, on your...

Well his stomach's sick but his heart is beating
Tears run thick but her eyes are bleeding
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming
And the world just stopped, the world just stopped
Well his stomach's sick but his heart is beating
Tears run thick but her eyes are bleeding
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming
And the world just stopped, the world just stopped

He didn't think that he had a problem
'Til he woke up and all his friends were gone
He kissed a girl in '97, he thought she left
But oh how she'd hung on

Oh Nigel, where've you been?
She said you're wonderful, as you are
Over there, thinking your life away
Pushing the love away, on your...

Well his stomach's sick but his heart is beating
Tears run thick but her eyes are bleeding
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming
And the world just stopped, the world just stopped
Well his stomach's sick but his heart is beating
Tears run thick but her eyes are bleeding
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming
And the world just stopped, the world just stopped

You and Simon lay together
She told him all the place that she'd been
What she'd seen
Coulda laid back there forever
Under her breath she sweared she'd get him clean

Well his stomach's sick but his heart is beating
Tears run thick but her eyes are bleeding
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming
And the world just stopped, the world just stopped
Well his stomach's sick but his heart is beating
Tears run thick but her eyes are bleeding
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming
And the world just stopped, the world just stopped
Well his stomach's sick but his heart is beating
Tears run thick but her eyes are bleeding
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming
And the world just stopped, the world just stopped
Well his stomach's sick but his heart is beating
Tears run thick but her eyes are bleeding
She slaps his face just to stop him screaming
And the world just stopped, the world just stopped
