  • We line the streets like soldiers daily
    To let them know that we ain't fading
    This is a beat, you can see it in my eyes
    It's gonna stay like this,
    it's gonna stay like this

    We line the streets like soldiers daily
    To let them know that we ain't fading
    This is a beat, you can see it in my eyes
    Its gonna stay like this until they realize

    Eighty thousand people in a state of rowdy fever
    There will never be a sequel to this evening
    Singing in the rafters, in the wings and over galleys
    And then after all the laughing, just a Draught

    From the wings and over galleys 'til I'm in a lonely alley
    If a feeling from my childhood comes to me then i will rally
    With all the cloves and all the rose tinted rows that go and sully
    Soak up that moment, woe is the finale

    Lonely, I am sinking in and over thinking it
    Looking at the goal, only slowly it is shrinking
    Hesitate, hesitate, hesitate, wait
    Any day, any day
    (Too late)

    [Chorus]

    The cheapest throwaway shades are my deepest stowaway aid
    I'm up with the angels but keep a toe in the trade
    Known these folks since I was little, but only through this ritual
    It's a pity they don't know me but what is there else than this?

    Sweeping and sweeping, the speaking unceasing
    From steeple to steeple, the people are shrieking
    Soon we parade through the fence, absolutely Dame Judy Dench'd
    And then stop, tell them to score and they flop

    I don't think I like this, I'm only ever nervous
    I'm a fighter, I'm a fighter but tonight I'd like to flight
    Hesitate, hesitate, hesitate, wait
    Any day, any day
    (Too late)

    [Chorus]

    The past isn't over, last minute grow
    Ask me to show you, ask me to go
    Or stab me in the throat
    Hesitate, hesitate, hesitate, wait
    Any day, any day
