  • Yeah, we're on

    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'll book myself into a soul asylum
    'Cause 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
    Half the world away, half the world away
    Half the world away
    I've been lost, I've been found but I don't feel down

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

    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
    Half the world away, half the world away
    Half the world away
    I've been lost, I've been found but I don't feel down

    No, I don't feel down
    No, I don't feel down

    I don't feel down
    I don't feel down
    Don't feel down
    I don't feel downWriter/s: Noel Gallagher
