When you walk up the hill you will see as you look down on every busy street thousands of faces smiling all downtown but I guarantee I’m not in that count I’m telling you I once was happy here but it seems to me there’s not much to achieve I’m one of those folks who have turned all bitter just hand me my ticket and I’ll leave chorus: Mr. Bus Driver Please take me far away I don’t wanna sink like a rock in a lake I gotta get out of this place If the concert time says eight on the bill nothing will begin before ten for so many people this gives them a thrill I’m certainly not one of them I’m telling you I once was happy here but it seems to me that something has gone wrong I’m one of those folks who have turned all bitter just hand me my ticket and I’m gone (chorus)

I can see you every time I close my eyes I can feel that empty space by my side And I miss you every night that I sleep alone And I count the days until I come back home chorus: If I could know the time my train arrives at the station Would you be there to welcome me home This is the loneliest vacation I have known Everyone’s been asking me why I look sad I just want to lay here alone in the pitch-black I don’t want to hear your voice on my cell phone I just want to hold you tight when I get home (chorus)

My mother always told me that to find something you love you have to listen closely to your heart when I started writing songs at the age of five I knew that it was only just the start Working in the morning, and by the afternoon mother would be listening with pride she always replied: “one day you'll have to write a big tune." My mother always told me how a dream needs discipline and passion doesn’t burn in everyone If you feel the fire, then your journey has begun but you’ll need to walk before you run Melodies would linger, like that number 5 perfume but disappear before they crystallize My mother would advise: “one day you’ll have to write a big tune." chorus: She said: “go write a big tune, play it for me in a day or two, you’ll have to write a melody that sticks to me like glue if you want to write a big tune.” My mother always told me that fame don't mean a thing and don’t let money be your biggest guide Every time you write a song, do your work with pride even if the cheque never arrives Now my only dream, when I'm heading to the bank, Paying bills long overdue, Is to pick up my guitar And go write a big tune. (chorus)

She never asked for very much she spoke so softly to me she had the sweetest touch a smile was always guaranteed I never saw her shed a tear She never said she was upset She was so easy to love and now so easy to forget I know that I’m a strong one My lonesome thoughts have gone away I’m not writing her a song to say: I think about you all day long I may have hurt her precious heart But I’m not dying with regret She was so easy to love and now so easy to forget

Say goodbye to the twilight as we drive away from here Good thing no one saw me take that left turn I just want to disappear though I packed all my gear and I’m riding like a bandit out of town I can’t help but think at the end of this road, there’s another round chorus: Have I come to lift my final latch or will I reach a golden age bite the dust ‘cause each city looks the same or keep on going with a serenade Say goodbye to the moonlight as we reach another town just enough time to fill up at the station and let the locals stare me down when I turn myself in, guilty like a bandit in this town I can’t help but think at the end of this stay, there’s another round (chorus) Say goodbye to this sunrise It’ll be back in the spring Just in time before the money’s running out I’ll be on that road again though I won’t feel that thrill when I ride like a bandit into town I can’t help but think at the end of this sting, there’s another round (chorus)

(Chris) If I had known everything About where you had been I wouldn't be lying here in my tears I would have known you're innocent And I would have had a brain Not to blame you instead of my fears But now you left, you said this time for good I'm just gonna wait here by the phone Maybe you will call to tell me I'm a fool And I'll start begging you to come back home Ooh, is this the end? I won't presume things again (Sarah) If I had left you a note Saying "out with my friends" Would you have believed me then? I should have known that first time And I'm only to blame For thinking that one day you would change But now I'm gone, this time for good I’m not gonna wait here by my phone If you were to call, I won’t be a fool And listen while you beg me to come back home Ooh, this is the end I won't presume you can change (Chris & Sarah) Ooh, this is the end I won't presume things again
