I never was a violent man
Said the man in the bar with his head in his hands
He’s trying his best to understand the cause of his dismay
But the years of gin have broken him
That left him cold where he’s fitted in
It’s too late to turn around and find another way

The lights in the late night lock-in
Have faded away when he gets in
The girl from fifteen years ago
Has packed and gone away

It’s never how it used to be
What happened to all that energy
You took one too many liberties, and I’m tired of being afraid
So after the fight she took flight
Hiding swollen eyes and a wounded pride
The best years of her life denied, sold for liquid shares

The lights in the late night lock-in
Have faded away when he gets in
The girl from fifteen years ago
Has packed and gone away

The victims of their world, are advertised on posters
Just a beach and a pretty girl, you should take this potion

It’s another week ’til his cheque comes through
He’s got a fiver left to spend on food
But the doors of the bars are open, and he breaks another rule
He sits on the stool that bears his name
He’s got a favorite glass and it’s called the same
He’s never been kept waiting, ‘cos he pays the landlord’s wage

The lights in the late night lock-in
Have faded away when he gets in
The girl from fifteen years ago
Has packed and gone away
