​My New Career

This song is by Japan and appears on the album Gentlemen Take Polaroids (1980) and on the album Exorcising Ghosts (1984).

I never wanted to be on my own
I could be wrong but
I just slipped away from home
Now I'm gone

Well way down south
Having minor ups and downs
And then moving on ahead in leaps and bounds

Why, boy, they're playing our song
Outside where no-one can hear
Why, boy, they're playing our song
At the start of my new career

Well it's a different walk of life
That I've come to know
Because at every port of call
Comes a time to go

Well they say down south
The sun won't set on my hometown
It's just driving in this heat that gets me down

I could never hurt anyone
Least of all you
