Half A World Away - Live From The National Bowl, Milton Keynes / 1995

Intro

And this is a song about thinking that you're in love and then finding out you're actually just drunk

Verse 1

This could be the saddest dusk ever seen
To turn to a miracle, high-alive
My mind is racing, as it always will
My hands tired, my heart aches
I'm half a world away, here in my head

Chorus

Sworn to go it alone, hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Go it alone, hold it along
Hold

Verse 2

Oh, lonely deeps and hollows
Half a world, half a world away
My shoes are gone, my life is spent
I had too much to drink
I didn't think, and I didn't think of you
I guess that's all I needed

Chorus

To go it alone and hold it along
And haul it along and hold it
Go it alone, hold it along
And hold

Verse 3

Oh, this lonely world is wasted
Pathetic eyes, high-alive
Blind eye that turns to see
The storm it came up strong
It shook the trees and blew away our fear
I couldn't leave it here

Chorus

To go it alone, hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Go it alone, hold it along
And hold
Go it alone, hold it along
Haul it along and hold it
Backwards, blackbirds, forwards and fall
And hold

Verse 1

Oh, and this could be the saddest dusk I've ever seen
To turn to a miracle, high-alive
My mind is racing, as it always will
My hands tired, my heart aches
I'm half a world away to go

Outro
