HERE WE SPEND OUR LIVES,IN THIS NORTHERN TOWN.
AND WE'RE KEEPING OUR LIVES HERE BUT THERE'S NO ONE AROUND.
WE'RE TALKING STORIES ABOUT JOBS AND SOLUTIONS,
THE PEOPLE LEFT SAY IT'S OUR INSTITUTION.
AND THERE THEY'LL STAY, BUT THEY'LL NEVER EVER LET GO.

SO NOW I'M SITTING HERE THINKING WHERE I MIGHT STAY.
THE JUNKYARDS AND THE FACTORIES HAVE MOVED AWAY.
NOW EVERYDAY WE'RE THINKING IT, DAY BY DAY,
THAT AS I LOOK ON DOWN THE STREET,
THIS STREET'S JUST NOT THE SAME.

HERE WE SPEND OUR LIVES IN THIS NORTHERN TOWN.
AND WE'RE KEEPING OUR LIVES HERE BUT THERE'S NO ONE AROUND.
WE'RE TALKING STORIES ABOUT JOBS AND SOLUTIONS,
THE PEOPLE LEFT SAY IT'S OUR INSTITUTION.
THERE THEY'LL STAY, BUT THEY'LL NEVER EVER LET GO.

SO NOW I'M SITTING HERE THINKING WHERE I MIGHT STAY.
THE JUNKYARDS AND THE FACTORIES HAVE MOVED AWAY.
NOW EVERYDAY WE'RE THINKING IT, DAY BY DAY,
THAT AS I LOOK ON DOWN THE STREET,
THIS STREET'S JUST NOT THE SAME.
