Empty Streets & Lovers In The Rain
Lyrics by Robb Johnson, Music by Phil Odgers


Stood here at this station
All you do is wait
Trains and revolutions
They’re always running late
The kids are going shopping
Vodka and cocaine
The world is full of empty streets
And lovers in the rain


That rain just keeps on falling
That’s the story of our lives
Bankers rob you with accountants
Gangsters just got guns and knives
What you gonna do about it?
Stand there and complain?
The world is full of empty streets
And lovers in the rain



M8
The poetry of Monday night
All that love in vain
The world is full of empty streets
And lovers in the rain

When that train rolls in the station
All that work and all those wheels
After all those cancellations
Do you remember how it feels
Take away the take aways
I’ll tell you what remains
The world is full of empty streets
And lovers in the rain


M8
The poetry of Monday night
All that love in vain
The world is full of empty streets
And lovers in the rain
And lovers in the rain
And lovers in the rain
And lovers in the rain
