  • Tidy your books up
    Put 'em under your bed
    And gather your thoughts up
    But keep 'em in your head
    Be careful what you wish for
    Be careful what you dream
    They let you sing your songs, son
    But they'll never hear you scream

    Button your coat up
    Take shelter from the rain
    They want you to be like them
    But you can never be the same
    'Cause you're standing on the outside
    They'll never let ya in
    They'll let you play the game, son
    But they'll never let you win

    Never let them bear witness
    To the tears in your eyes
    And never take a handshake
    From the prophets and their lies
    'Cause they put you in the wrong line
    You've been crying out for more
    They've given you the key, son
    But you'll never find the door

    You've fallen like an angel
    Stranded on the earth
    They let you see their riches
    They never tell you what you're worth
    They put you in the back seat
    While they're heading for the sun
    And if you're waiting for the rapture
    The day will never come

    The day will never come
    The day will never come
    The day will never come
    The day will never come
    The day will never come
    The day will never come
    The day will never come
    The day will never come Writer/s: NOEL GALLAGHER
