dawn chorus lyrics – alarm

i’m a lonely man walking lonely streets
i’m soaked to the skin with the pain of my unease
from such a strained existence

the tension in this world keeps me from sleep
i’m hungry and cold
there’s a weight hanging over my shoulders
a rain black cloud of doubt

have i got enough love
have i got enough hope?
enough strength to face the world each day?
i know there’s an answer somewhere in this night
i see her each time i look in your eyes

i’m walking in a wild place
i am banging on the gates
on the other side of the tracks babe
hoping that someone’s gonna hear me pray

oh there’s a dawn chorus breaking out all over the town

will you say you want me,
wwill i say i want you?
will you say you love me
when i’m stripped and forced to stand up naked
and will i still love you

the goal that i want can’t exist without fire
and you fire the thoughts that realise all my dreams
these are a grown man’s tears

i lost all faith, i lost all hope
i started drinking, life became a joke
something would keep me going.
i didn’t know what it was
but i saw it each time i looked in your eyes

i’m walking in a wild place
i am banging on the gates
on the other side of the tracks babe
hoping that someone’s gonna hear me pray

oh there’s a dawn chorus breaking out all over the town

oh my god
why do i feel the doubt

you give me something i can’t live without
yet from somewhere there comes an emptiness
a feeling that i can’t suppress

is this the start of the beginning or the point of no return?

there’s an answer there
when i look in your eyes

i’m walking in a wild place
i am banging on the gates
on the other side of the tracks babe
where all my doubts are now laid away away away away
i’m walking in a wild place
i am banging on the gates
on the other side of the tracks babe
where someone answered my prayers

oh there’s a dawn chorus breaking out all over the town

(that’s too sad)
