lyrics

I’m bound to this place, like the bridge across the water
Bound to this place, like the hotel to the corner
Nothing much changes
Nothing much happens 'round here

Get a morning cup of coffee and my last cigarette
It’s a habit I’m kicking but I ain’t gotten there yet
Nothing much changes
No-one likes changes 'round here

So I take a ride, I’m heading out to where the dust devils fly
And I won’t be gone, too late, too far, too long
Cos I’ll be coming back around as the night falls down
On this bordertown

Meet the girl of your dreams when they’re out on vacation
It’s a lovely little place if you ain’t planning on staying
Cos nothing much changes
Nothing much happens round here

So I take a ride, I’m heading out to where the dust devils fly
And I won’t be gone, too late, too far, too long
Cos I’ll be coming back around as the night falls down
On this bordertown

Hear those factory bells as they ring cross the land
There’s two ways in but only one way out

I’m bound to this place like the bridge across the water
Bound to this place like the hotel to the corner
Nothing much changes
No-one likes changes round here

So I take a ride, I’m heading out to where the dust devils fly
And I won’t be gone, too late, too far, too long
And I’ll be coming back around when the night falls down
And I’ll be coming back around as the sun goes down
On this bordertown
On this bordertown
