lyrics

Been smoking too much,
and waiting my by window for you to call
Thought I could have it all,
but now the rug's been pulled out from under me,
you're all I got to hold onto

Cos I've been living these years
hanging by a thread of nights of nostalgia
Thought they'd get me there,
but now I know,

I'm not going back to Liverpool
I'm not going back, says a note I got in the post today.
I'm not going back to Liverpool,
so I guess I'll have to try again,
some other time, some other way

Hope you know that I
would have wanted to stay with you while I was gone
Call me naïve,
but all I ever wanted was a song to sing
and someone to sing it to

But I've been living these years
hanging by a thread of nights of nostalgia
Thought they'd keep me warm,
but now I know

I'm not going back to Liverpool
