    Lyrics

    Close your eyes and go to sleep
    From the howling, howling over these streets
    'Cause people stare, 'cause you're so mad
    That wild, wild spark, that innocent laugh

    But baby, that's this town
    It won't happen next time
    Yeah, baby that's this town
    Lovers on love downs
    It's this town to be blamed

    At the top of the block there's a church
    At the top of the tower there's a clock
    And it rings and it sighs
    'Cause there's no time for all these lies

    But baby, that's this town
    It won't happen next time
    Baby, that's this town
    Lovers on love downs
    It's this town to be blamed

    Baby, take a walk round to my house
    Throw off these tired eyes and tears and these frowns
    Take that lane so down and deep
    And walk those regrets that fill your sleep

    You say your sleep is naked but your dreams are clothed
    What about your footsteps, who sees them go?
    Who lets you know about these things?

    Who's gonna say the things we think?
    So take your keys and pack your bags
    But leave your books and leave your maps

    'Cause baby that's this town
    It won't happen next time
    Yeah baby, that's this town
    It won't happen next time

    Yeah baby, that's this town
    It won't happen next time
    Sure baby that's this town
    Lovers on love downs
    It's this town to be blamed
    It's this town to be blamed

    Work, work, work
    Rain, rain, rain
    Home, home, home
    Again, again, again

    Work, work, work
    And a rain, rain, rain
    Home, home, home
    Again, again, again

    Work, work, work
    Rain, rain, rain
    Home, home, home
    Again, again, again

    It's work, work, work
    And the, rain, rain, rain
    And home, home, home
    Again, again, again

    It's work, work, work
    And the rain, rain, rain
    Your home, home, home
    Again, again, again

    It's, work, work, work
    Rain, rain, rain
    Home, home, home
    Again, again, again

    Work, work, work
    And the rain, rain, rain
    Your home, home, home
    Again, again, again
