The Alarm - Dawn Chorus Lyrics

I'm a lonely man walking lonely streets
I'm soaked to the skin with the pain of my unease
From such a strained existence

The tension in this world keeps me from sleep
I'm hungry and cold
There's a weight hanging over my shoulders
A rain black cloud of doubt

Have I got enough love
Have I got enough hope?
Enough strength to face the world each day?
I know there's an answer somewhere in this night
I see her each time I look in your eyes

I'm walking in a wild place
I am banging on the gates
On the other side of the tracks babe
Hoping that someone's gonna hear me pray

Oh there's a dawn chorus breaking out all over the town

Will you say you want me,
Wwill I say I want you?
Will you say you love me
When I'm stripped and forced to stand up naked
And will I still love you

The goal that I want can't exist without fire
And you fire the thoughts that realise all my dreams
These are a grown man's tears

I lost all faith, I lost all hope
I started drinking, life became a joke
Something would keep me going.
I didn't know what it was
But I saw it each time I looked in your eyes

I'm walking in a wild place
I am banging on the gates
On the other side of the tracks babe
Hoping that someone's gonna hear me pray

Oh there's a dawn chorus breaking out all over the town

Oh my god
Why do I feel the doubt

You give me something I can't live without
Yet from somewhere there comes an emptiness
A feeling that I can't suppress

Is this the start of the beginning or the point of no return?

There's an answer there
When I look in your eyes

I'm walking in a wild place
I am banging on the gates
On the other side of the tracks babe
Where all my doubts are now laid away away away away
I'm walking in a wild place
I am banging on the gates
On the other side of the tracks babe
Where someone answered my prayers

Oh there's a dawn chorus breaking out all over the town

(That's too sad)
