September came real fast,
faster than the last.
Are you alone?
cause I'm alone.

You got the key to our safe,
keep it secret for our sake.
Or I'm gone,
while I'm gone.

You could hide it in your pillow,
or, in an old doll's head.
Underneath a tree somewhere,
or just swallow it instead.

Cause Lord you know I've tried,
have I not?
And all these new friends stare and remind me,
of what I haven't got.

Fifty thousand pounds,
stashed under the ground.
I'll take you out,
now I can take you out.

Secrets in the walls,
left there from before.
They moved out,
why don't you come round?

And see my new reflection,
in my brand new trophy room.
We'll buy a ticket out of here,
maybe Rio de Janerio.

Cause Lord you know I've tried,
have I not?
And all these new friends stare and remind me,
of what I haven't got.

A brand new life in the sun,
we'll go from beach to beach.
It's just begun,
it's just begun.

What I thought was the start became the end,
it turns out you just want to be my friend.
You turn to me and say,
"This was a nice holiday" (Nooooo!)

And you can see my new reflection,
as it crumbles to the floor.
Another drink, oh, another chat,
I've got friends in every port.

Cause Lord you know I've tried,
have I not?
And all these new friends stare and remind me,
oh, but they do inspire me
oh, will anybody take me home tonight?

    General CommentI can't beieve no one has commented on this yet!! This is definitely in my top 5 favorite Slow Club songs.

    It's about how he left someone behind to take on new things, yet everything still remind him of that person. Even though they said they'd still be friends, he still focuses his life around what she meant to him, and nobody can replace her, no matter how he may change.
