Album: Compact Story (1979)
  • I woke up to a feeling, it was cold by my side
    You had gone with the sunrise, leaving tears in my eyes
    I got up with a feeling of an emptiness inside
    To the noise of the sidewalk and the silence of my mind

    Well I walked out this morning, down a street with no name
    To a club called "The Loser", like a dog that's gone lame
    Took the club elevator to the floor with a view
    I took out life subscription, it's the only one they do

    I stepped out on the guard rail, saw the crowds slowly part
    Heard a voice shouting "Don't jump, please for God's sake let me move my car!"
    Felt a hand on my shoulder, heard a voice cry "Just in time!"
    Felt the quick push, felt the air rush
    Felt the sidewalk, fell in line Writer/s: JOHN LEES

  • Kjeld from DennarkI just love this song. Not that I am suicidal, it just has a wonderful blues feeling to it.
