Touch And Go
LYRICS...
Well we stepped out
In the shatter light
And I watched as we blew away
Through a sea of seats
And the tangled up streets
And the cities in a grey-blue haze

In the catalogue
All the places fold in
Underneath a daylight moon
Grey eyes, brown eyes
Mad nights, red skies
Well I keep them in a jumble room

So while I am the one who waits here
We all know that it's all such a game of
Touch and Go

Let's play at
Touch and Go
I'm waking up in the moving windows
Going out to play the game of
Touch and Go

'Cos it's all so Touch and Go
Uh oh

Well the summer boy in his dog-blue shirt
Getting letters from Tokyo
And we're sitting in a shaky Laker
Gliding over to a girl with a broken nose

There's motorway sparks
And meetings in the park
And fires from years ago
You can watch your friends
Through this tiny lens
Then you'll know that there's no way home

So while I am the one who waits here
We all know that it's all such a game of
Touch and Go

Let's play at
Touch and Go
Waking up in the moving windows
Going out again to play the game of
Touch and Go

'Cos it's all so Touch and Go
Let's Go

Touch
Go
Touch and Go
Touch and Go

Touch
Go
Touch and Go
Touch and Go
Uh oh

Now it's springtime
On the moving stairway
Time to start again
And I'm wondering vaguely
Just whose face this is
And could we ever be friends?

Outside now it's so huge and blue
And the city windows start to glow
And the tides are soft as we're casting off
And the summer starts to show

So while I am the one who waits here
We all live to play the game of
Touch and Go

Let's play at
Touch and Go
I'm waking up in the moving windows
Going out again to play the games of
Touch and Go

'Cos it's all so Touch and Go
So let's Go
