​Pop Machine

This song is by Nicky Byrne and appears on the album Sunlight (2016).

Packed a suitcase tight
For an early flight
Kissed the kids goodbye
Couldn't sleep last night
Feel I'm running blind
Too much on my mind
Right now

It's a brand new place
With a month to go
Babe I'm missing you
And I know you know
Got your cheeky text
Put the smile back on my face

Passing neon signs
See our name in lights
People on their way
To our show tonight

Stepping on the stage
Hear the crowd erupt
Then the lights come on
Then we fire it up

Pop machine
Ridin' in the pop machine
Haven't you heard
We're rulin' the world
Livin' the dream

Pop machine
Ridin' in the pop machine
Haven't you heard
We're rulin' the world
Livin' the dream

Another TV show
Someone we don't know
In the makeup room
We're on J Leno
The producer says
Hurry up it's time to wait

Pose for photographs
Do the backstage greets
Sign the autographs
Try to make 'em laugh
Ate some Macky D's
Choked on agents fees
Oh these long world tours
Man they're killing me

Pop machine
Ridin' in the pop machine
Haven't you heard
We're rulin' the world
Livin' the dream
Sing it

Woh oh oh oh
Woh oh oh oh
Woh oh oh oh
Woh oh
Haven't you heard
We're rulin' the world
Livin' the dream

In the first class lounge
Still can hear the sound
Of the encore screams
From the crazy crowd
Guess we lived the dream
Of this pop machine
Now the private jet
Yeah we're homeward bound

Pop machine
Ridin' in the pop machine
Haven't you heard
We're rulin' the world
Livin' the dream

Pop machine
Ridin' in the pop machine
Haven't you heard
We're rulin' the world
Livin' the dream

Sing it

Woh oh oh oh
Woh oh oh oh
Woh oh oh oh
Woh oh
Haven't you heard
We're rulin the world
Livin' the dream

Pop machine
Ridin' in the pop machine
Haven't you heard
We're rulin' the world
We're livin' the dream
