This World (The Dream Academy)

Richard's on the street with all the lonely poeple Trying to get a job and getting nowhere So now this is what he got A new kind of dedication He doesn't feel lost He walks into the station And Richard takes a train to go uptown You know he's gonna find a place where the money just walks around And with the grace of a wildcat He steals a bag without detection Walks on tiptoes right back To make the right connection. And when he leaves this world Well then he won't feel alone Now the fighting has all gone. No more just trying to hold on To the dreams of this world Where he never quite belonged. Belinda meets a friend at a pub called 'The Gun' It's full of lots of lonely people all ot trying to have some fun. She says, "I'll be right back" Although you know it's only ten to one Her eyes are just like a wild cat And where's the summer gone. She's been working on the ships for easy money It's a bigger kind of tip and that may be because You run a bigger kind of risk She's got the dedication written in a kiss In the promise of intoxicated bliss. She's misunderstood for all the lonely people Living in the world and getting nowhere, Something always just goes wrong. Why should they try to hold on To the dreams of this world Where they never wuite belonged. Gina says she's gonna stop, Settle down, you know, give it all up, But it's so hard to give it up When all your friends say they just can't Stop. They beat up a girl on the Ford Estate with a baseball bat Last night the vigilante city fathers tried to get their daughters back. They didn't understand A different kind of smack was needed Than the back of the hand Yeah, something else was always needed. This is for all the misunderstood lonely people Living in the world and getting nowhere Something always just goes wrong. Why should they try to hold on To the dreams of this world Where they never quite belonged? Where they never quite belonged.
