Barrowland Ballroom

Album: This Is The Life (2007)
  • Oh the lights outside they're as bright as the sun
    They're much brighter than anyone
    Oh the girls in the queue yes they're waiting for you
    Well they're waiting for their song to be sung
    And when the night turns to day and all the people go away
    It's not the same, tell me who's to blame?
    And when the stars shine so bright on the cold December night
    I wish that I was on the stage

    Oh won't you take a ride with me
    Through the Barrowland history
    And I'll sing you a song or two
    People they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
    It's only me and you
    And the drink and dance and drugs you know
    It's all part of the show we go to
    Maybe I should tell you
    That people they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
    Tonight, it's only me and you

    Oh nothing beats the feeling of the high Barrowland ceiling
    When the band start to play
    Won't you buy me a drink and I'll tell her what I think if she gets in my way
    And when the night turns to day and all the people go away
    It's not the same, tell me who's to blame?
    And when the stars shine so bright on the cold December night
    I wish that I was on the stage

    Oh won't you take a ride with me
    Through the Barrowland history
    And I'll sing you a song or two
    People they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
    It's only me and you
    And the drink and dance and drugs you know
    It's all part of the show we go to
    Maybe I should tell you
    That people they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
    Tonight, it's only me and you

    And when the night turns to day and the lights they fade away
    I wish that love and life would pass me by
    And when the band stops a song because there's something going on
    Well there is magic in the air I swear
    And I wish that I saw Bowie, playing on that stage
    I wish that I saw something, to make me come of age

    Oh won't you take a ride with me
    Through the Barrowland history
    And I'll sing you a song or two
    People they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
    It's only me and you
    And the drink and dance and drugs you know
    It's all part of the show we go to
    Maybe I should tell you
    That people they may stop and stare but baby I just don't care
    Tonight, it's only me and you Writer/s: AMY ELIZABETH MACDONALD
