Lyrics

I phoned a friend of mine
Who moved to London late last year
He won’t be coming home too soon
He’s where he wants to be

Soon you’ll be going too
It’s only for a while I know
Maybe I’ll finally read Ulysses
On those lonely Melbourne nights

It’s kind of strange to be
The one that’s left behind
Night is day and days turn into nights
But fade away

Don’t fade away
Fade away

Now it’s Wednesday night
I’m drinking on my own again
Strolling down the esplanade
Looking for those neon lights

I see some old familiar faces
From the glory days
“So how’s the ex
And how are the kids
Hope you are doing well”

One more fallen road
It’s getting late
We’re not getting any younger

So don’t fade away
Don’t make a stranger of yourself
Don’t fade away
Don’t fade away

Then the cab arrives
And you rush into my arms
And my exile ends
And I’m once more safe from harm

So don’t fade away
Don’t make a stranger of yourself
Don’t fade away
Don’t fade away

Don’t you make a stranger of yourself
Don’t fade away
Don’t fade away

Don’t you make a stranger of yourself
Don’t fade away
Don’t fade away
