​The Rest of the World Has Gone Home

This song is by The Courteeners and appears on the album Falcon (2010).

Mark was there, he was chasing tail, the urban genie
On the door got offered the manners test and failed
That girl who said she was your friend but you really hated
Her was there in her element as two chunky thick set
Skinheads gyrated her

I was sulking by the cigarette machine by the back bar
This time you've gone too far
I'll be minding your drink as you go to the RBS
Cash machine, don't sniff keep it clean

What should I do now I am all alone?
The rest of the world has gone home

I tried to paint you my feelings through this verse
Just like Neil Young did in the back of his hearse
But you won't hear much of that though in here though
It's full of cheerful chaps who whistle and leer and live on their own

I was sulking by the cigarette machine by the back bar
This time you've gone too far
I'll be minding your drink as you go to the RBS
Cash machine, don't sniff keep it clean

What should I do now I am all alone?
The rest of the world has gone home

The Deansgate fireflies they blink and wink at me
I haven't felt this alone since my art GCSE
And don't bother with the tears tomorrow
You're always doing it, you're always doing it
You're always bloody doing it

I was sulking by the cigarette machine by the back bar
This time you've gone too far
I'll be minding your drink as you go to the RBS
Cash machine, don't sniff keep it clean

What should I do now I am all alone?
The rest of the world has gone home
