LyricsEdit


Friends of mine
They said they were friends of mine
Said they were passing time
More like a waste of time

Close the door
I said close the door
I've told you twice before
What are you waiting for

Georgie Davies is comin' out
No more heroes we twist and shout
Oh no not me I'm not too late
And I know that I'm not taking anymore
Rocky Picture has lost his gun
Leave him out now hes having fun
Oh no not me I'm not too late
And I know that I'm not waiting any more (hey hey)

Silly lies, don't have to advertise
When will you realize, I'm sick of you alibis

It's running cold, the waters running cold
I thinks its time you were told
I think you're growing old

Georgie Davies is comin' out
No more heroes we twist and shout
Oh no not me I'm not to late
And I know that I'm not waiting anymore
Rocky Picture has lost his gun
Leave him out now he's having fun
Oh no not me I'm not to late
And I know that I'm not taking anymore (hey hey)

I 
See you smile
Pictures on the wall there all
Friends of mine
See you standing round the back
Friends of mine
Think yourself
Lucky(!)

Friends of mine
Said they were friends of mine
They were just wasting time
Out on the dotted line

(Ahahahah)
Money's gone (gone gone)
I've known it all along
Why don't ya say I'm wrong?
Why don't they drop the bomb?

Georgie Davies is comin' out
No more heroes we twist and shout
Oh no not me I'm not to late
And I lnow that I'm not waiting anymore
Rocky Picture's thrown away his gun
Leave him out now he's having fun
Oh no not me I'm not to late
And I know that I'm not taking anymore

What'cha doing friends of mine
Holding back now
Friends of mine
I've always heard you calling...(calling calling calling)
