Here comes a friend from far away From somewhere great, from a big city Somewhere with no dreary old boozers Wet station platforms in the long-ago Somewhere with no lags & kingmakers & corporations doing expensive favours Where there’s life in the smallest stone & the cracks make a picture Change my life, change my life Change my life, change my life, my friend Visions never come to true believers You know it’s always to some bloke next door & you’ll never see a UFO They’re not much talked about, anymore & the noise of the passing trains In the sky, in the far-away Where fascinating people do live & dwell That’s the place I need to be Change my life, change my life Change my life, my friend And I’ll sense you, and you’ll sense me Entirely free, free to go – free to go But that ain’t necessarily so… Change my life…
