Who would of thought it would finish like this
at the back of a bus at 2:36
And you try to explain why things aren't the same
You've grown up a little, you haven't really changed
And a song came on just before dawn
You tried to catch sleep but she's run off to torment your mind
and you lie there awake and unnerved
and you really don't like the first verse
and your thinking about the universe

Seize the night, let shadows run wild in your mind
Seize the night, do your best to lose track of time
Seize the night, and the path won't feel so long
'Cause if you know where you are when you wake up
if you know where you are when you wake up
if you know where you are when you wake up
something's wrong

Never knew it would take this long
the same old streets,the same old songs
the same wise words from old man John
Where does he go now the Grey Horse is gone?
Closed down a twelve bar last week
I remember you dancing on Denmark Street
asking where we're going next
Those are the days I'll always know best
Their ripping this city style off his chest

Seize the night, let shadows run wild in your mind
Seize the night, do your best to lose track of time
Seize the night, and the path won't feel so long
'Cause if you know where you are when you wake up
if you know where you are when you wake up
if you know where you are when you wake up
something's wrong

Well its just black 17 and red number 5,
ten minutes to the pound, four years of your life
Wish I could write a letter to pass the warning to say its gonna happen so fast
Johnny used to say he believed in ghosts
They were the little things he loved the most
Well we never got rich and we never got famous
I heard that Alice got married in Vegas
If you see her tell, won't you tell her I said goodbye
And I never forgot that fateful valentine
And i never forgot the tears in her eyes

Seize the night, let shadows run wild in your mind
Seize the night, do your best to lose track of time
Seize the night, and the path won't feel so long
'Cause if you know where you are when you wake up
if you know where you are when you wake up
if you know where you are when you wake up
something's wrong

Well if you blink then you'll miss it
when the times are changin'
'cause its out of fashion when its on TV
Before you know it your eyes are raging
You're telling your kids that used to me

Well we got off the bus, a kiss on the cheek
said maybe I'd give you a call next week
But we both know those calls will never come
Well as long as we're still breathing there'll be somewhere left to run

Seize the night, let shadows run wild in your mind
Seize the night, do your best to lose track of time
Seize the night, and the path won't feel so long
'Cause if you know where you are when you wake up
if you know where you are when you wake up
if you know where you are when you wake up
something's wrong
