​Local Boy Lost

This song is by The Law.

Tell them he'll catch the fight, maybe just not tonight, no

I'm homesick, but I don't have a home,
There's too many dogs that I shouldn't have boned,
Fast cars that I could've owned,
A long, long time ago.

Remind me not of this shit I've got,
I may look nonchalant but I haven't forgotten,
A smile instead of sulking,
Brings a brighter day.

But still we laugh and we don't cry,
Too high to even question a brother in disguise,
Take off your jacket, come in for the ride,
We're celebrating just another local boy lost,
They're on the rise.

Longing for a girl to chase,
Where the mantel-piece matches her fireplace,
I've not seen one of these since, oh so long ago.

Shaking, it's half past three,
And I have a mouth full of bumble bees,
I swear that chair just spoke to me,
Come on the brighter day.

But still we laugh and we don't cry,
Too high to even question a brother in disguise,
Take off your jacket, come in for the ride,
We're celebrating just another local boy lost,
They're on the rise.

Tell them he'll catch the fight, maybe just not tonight, no.

But still we laugh and we don't cry,
Too high to even question a brother in disguise,
Take off your jacket, come in for the night,
We're celebrating just another local boy lost,
They're on the rise.

Tell them he'll catch the fight, maybe just not tonight, no.

But still we laugh and we don't cry,
Too high to even question a brother in disguise,
Take off your jacket, come in for the night,
We're celebrating just another local boy lost,
They're on the rise.

Tell them he'll catch the fight, maybe just not tonight, no.
