  • I would like to leave this city
    This old town don't smell too pretty
    And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind

    And when I leave this island
    I book myself into a soul asylum
    I can feel the warning signs running around my mind

    So here I go
    I'm still scratching around in the same old hole
    My body feels young but my mind is very old
    So what do you say?
    You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway
    You're half the world away
    You're half the world away

    And when I leave this planet
    You know I'd stay but I just can't stand it
    And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind

    And if I can leave this spirit
    I'll find me a hole and I'll live in it
    And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind

    So here I go
    I'm still scratching around in the same old hole
    My body feels young but my mind is very old
    So what do you say?
    You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway
    You're half the world away
    You're half the world away

    You're half the world away
    I've been lost, I've been found
    But I don't feel down
    You're half the world away
    I've been lost, I've been found
    But I don't feel down
    I don't feel down Writer/s: Noel Gallagher
