Play It Again
(John DuCann/Vincent Crane)

And On The Other Side Of Town
There Fell A Silence Of A Past And A Distant Sound.
And In A City Underground
There Came A Hush, Do We Know What's Going Down?
Can We Ever Hear The Same
Haunting Songs That Makes Us Play It Again.

And Again, We'll Play It Again,
Play It Again, Play It Again.
Play It Again, Play It Again.
I Want To Hear That Song Again.

Whatever Happened To The Band
Who Strike The Chords For A Theme That Has No End?
And If We Had The Chance, But Then
What Will We Play?
Will We Play It Again?
And Again, And Again, And Again - Play it Again.

Play It Again, Play It Again,
We Want To Hear That Song Again.
Play It Again, Play It Again,
We Want To Hear That Song Again!

And Again, Oh, Play It Again,
We Want To Hear That Song Again.
Play It Again, Play It Again,
We Want To Hear That Song Again!

Whatever Happened To The Band
Who Strikes The Chords That Makes Us
Play It Again And Again And Again.

Play It Again And Again And Again,
Play It Again, Play It Again,
Play It Again, Play It Again,
I Want To Hear That Song Again.

And Again, Play It Again
Play It Again, Play It Again,
Play It Again, Play It Again,
And Again And Again.


Start To Live
(John DuCann)

Bored With A Future Second To None,
Quite Obscure If I'd 'Ave Had Fun.
Tell Me The Lie Taken With Kicks,
Tell Me The Truth, Babe,
When Do I Start To Live?

Learn All The Rules To Listen What's Next,
Half The Time You Get What You Get.
Taking The Chance To Make It Real Big,
Tell Me The Truth, Babe,
When Do I Start To Live?

Well If Tomorrow Is My Fate,
Then I'll Figure I'll Be Late.
And If I Have To Earn My Stake,
It's Alright By Me, Alright By Me.

Well If Tomorrow Never Calls,
I'll Be Glad I Had It All.
Just A Rebel With A Clause,
It's Alright By Me, Alright By Me.

Try To Put A Stop To Drinks We Don't Need
And No Way, They're Trouble And Greed.
Bring Yourself, Hand You My Gig.
Tell Me The Truth, Babe,
When Do I Start To Live?

When If Tomorrow Is My Fate,
Then I'll Figure I'll Be Late.
And If I Have To Earn My Stake,
It's Alright By Me, Alright By Me.

Well If Tomorrow Never Calls,
I'll Be Glad I Had It All.
Just A Rebel With A Clause,
It's Alright By Me, Alright By Me.

When Do I Start To Live?
When Do I Start To Live?
When Do I Start To Live?
When Do I Start To Live?


End Of The Day
(John DuCann)

But When I Get Home, Gonna Stay Till The End Of The Day.
Waited So Long, But I Stay Till The End Of The Day.
But When I'm Gone I'll Be Trusting You Again.
Working All Night.
Making It Right.
Trying So Hard, So Hard, So Hard To Be Something, You'll Keep
Playing These Games.
I'm Going Insane.
I Know, I Know, I Know It's Never What It Seems.

But, But When I Get Home, Gonna Stay Till The End Of The Day.
Waited So Long, But I Stay Till The End Of The Day.
But When I'm Gone I'll Be Trusting You Again.
Fooling Around.
Feeling So Proud.
Hearing Those Words, Those Words I Never Mean,
Taking A Chance.
A Meaningless Offence.
You Know, You Know, You Know They're Never What They Seem.

But, But, But When I Get Home Gonna Stay Till The End Of The Day.
Waited So Long But I Stay Till The End Of the Day.
But When I'm Gone I'll Be Trusting You Again.

But, But, But When I Get Home Gonna Stay Till The End Of The Day.
Waited So Long But I Stay Till The End Of The Day.
When I Get Home Gonna Stay Till The End Of The Day.
Waited So Long But I Stay Till The End Of The Day.

When I Get Home, When I Get Home.
When I Get Home, When I Get Home.


Living Underground
(John DuCann)

And In The Heat Of The Sun,
We Live, The People Living Underground.
Under The Shade Of The Fence,
We Have The Lovers Of Night Making Sounds.
(Are They Crying?)

Well Here's A Message Going Round,
There's Not A Sound, There's Not A Sound.
It's The System Where There's Law,
We Want The Truth, The Secret's Living Underground.
(Living Underground)

There Must Be More Ways Than One
To Do Help, To Help Me Carry On.
There Lies A Message Over There,
But No One Ever, No One Ever,Ever Really Cares.
(But Do They Know?)

Well Here's A Message Going Round,
There's Not A Sound, There's Not A Sound.
It's The System Where There's Law,
We Want The Truth, The Secret's Living Underground.
(Living Underground)

Living Underground, The Secret's Underground.
Living Underground, The Secret's Underground.

Help, Help, Help, Help.
Living Underground.
