Longing For The Night (Yeah Pause) lyrics

Kids to school, waking up at 6
Half asleep and making baby bowls of weetabix
Now dogs keep barking and the neighbours start shouting

And next thing I know my eyes closed, just despairing
But I can't stop caring

Two sprogs to feed and material needs keep me on the narrow and straight
Wait, new through the letterbox of long lost friends or an auntie with a lot of dosh
Bless my cotton socks, bought from primani with a gyro that buys a lot
Amazing how it stretches out, a bit like chewing gum
Raised well but acting like a plum
Got some A levels ain't dumb

Life goes on (on)
Rolling like a penny through the day
And I can't stop, so I'm OK (K)
Swatting at the worries in the way
It's best to say
I'm just longing for the night (night)
I'm just longing for the night (time)
I'm just longing for the night (night)
I'm just longing for the night (time)

Kids late, I blame the bus driver doing 20 mph
And he wouldn't drive faster, I was steaming I was seething
Man, I could've had a fight
But my doctor told me stressing though it just just isn't right
So I heeded, stayed calm and took the kids away to school
See the faces of the teachers thinking 'he's a bloody fool'
Give them evils, like knievel, and just just jump right out
Then I skip heart runned around away roundabout
Like a ghost, through town, bare stares out loud
Just a lone-type figure just an insect in a crowd
Watching strangers, dragging feet
Have a ciggie for a treat
Then it's right back home, Masterchef on the telly

Life goes on (on)
Rolling like a penny through the day
And I can't stop, so I'm OK (K)
Swatting at the worries in the way
It's best to say
I'm just longing for the night (night)
I'm just longing for the night (time)
I'm just longing for the night (night)
I'm just longing for the night (time)
