    When I was seventeen
    I was chasing after dreams
    In southport
    I had to get away
    Or end up in a nursing home alone
    When I was seventeen
    I had a special love
    And southport
    Didn't seem a bad place after all

    On the promenade
    The carnival facade is peeling
    And the floral clock
    Has stopped a moment caught in time
    Such a sad decay
    Well, it's something like the way I'm feeling
    For such a dream so big
    Southport seemed a little bit too small

    And I was still naive
    I really did believe in magic
    Thought I had found a love
    And treasured it above all else
    But then I looked beyond
    I saw another life was waiting
    I was chasing after dreams
    I had to find them by myself

    I hope you understand
    Such a love could never be
    The sea has turned my soul
    And it aches to be free
    I will always think
    Of southport at the fair
    Summer on the beach
    The fun that we had there

    With southport in my mind
    But las vegas in my heart
    I set out to search for the stars

    But every dream I dream
    Follows where you've been
    And it's tearing my heart apart

    When I was seventeen
    I left to find my dream
    From southport
    January came
    I blame myself for out goodbyes
    Nothing is so sad
    As the sea side out of season
    And nothing is so sad
    As you and i

    When I was seventeen
    I was chasing after dreams
    In southport
    I had to get away
    Or end up in a nursing home alone
    And now it seems I'd never been
    A boy of seventeen
    In southport
    It didn't last
    A lifetime passed
    A love outgrown

    Was it all a dream
    Or was it all for real
    I'm standing on the pier
    I'm trying not to feel
    The tears are in my eyes
    Your face is in the sand
    I'm trying to look down
    I'm reaching out my hand
    I'm falling to the wind
    I'm waiting for the sea
    But the sea is never in
    It's never in for me
    In southport
    (it's never in for me)
    (repeat and fade)
