I was standing on a corner kicking my heels
Had my coat buttoned up beneath my chin
And I saw in some girl's eyes, she thought I was making deals
There was just me and the clock struck out
I was looking for something to scream and shout about
So I took a train and I went back home
There was no one to tell so I didn't telephone
That place is just another big unknown to me
That place is just another big unknown to me

The sea made angry faces, the waves were getting high
Saw them kicking down onto the front
And the cars dodged the water that was flooding on by
And I just stood there, an orphan fool
I saw kids smoking chain on their way back from school
A tramp got reckless in the center of town
He was talking about Jesus as the sun went down
A lifetime of sorrows, he was ready to drown
A lifetime of sorrows, I think he was going to drown

Well I hit this bar where I used to hang out
Talked to the guy behind the bar, then dropped a few names
He didn't know what I was talking about
So I put my money down and I shot some pool
Beat two punks, I was feeling cool
A couple of girls started to flirt
And I felt really old as they tugged my shirt
And I walked outside as they hurled some dirt at me
I walked outside as they hurled dirt at me

Went to visit Helen by St. Helen's Park
That place used to frighten me now all I can see
Was a couple of wide-boy sharks flashing their teeth in the small-town dark
Huddled myself in the cold
That old red brick house I can find it blindfolded
I loved her when I was sixteen
She was an old town new brown beauty queen
Now I just spend my time filling the gaps in between her and me
Well I just spend my time filling the gaps that have grown in
