  • She was there diamonds in her hair
    Singing out a dead man's song
    Here am I with the mighty and the high
    Feeling like I don't belong
    There's you when you book a who's who
    Acting like you just don't care
    We were lying low
    Got nowhere to go
    And any road will get us there

    We never should have left town in the first place
    Now we gotta walk like they talk in the rat race
    You keep your eyes on the prize if you want it all

    You and I, spider and a fly
    We're meeting where the shadows fall

    Make room for the man who built the moon
    He arrived on a knackered horse
    Made no sound from the day you left town
    And no one said a word of course
    I believe he was wearing on his sleeve
    A heart made of blackened stone
    I said, my love
    I think I've had enough
    I'm gonna find my way back home

    We never should have left town in the first place
    Now we gotta walk like they talk in the rat race
    You keep your eyes on the prize if you want it all

    You and I, spider and a fly
    Will meet where the shadows fall

    We never should have left town in the first place
    Now we gotta walk like they talk in the rat race
    You keep your eyes on the prize if you want it all

    You and I, the spider and a fly
    Will meet where the shadows fall

    You and I, the spider and a fly
    Will meet where the shadows fall Writer/s: Noel Gallagher
