lyrics

At night the park closes down and the toy train parks up,
the sun sets on it and all the barking dogs go quiet.
At night the park closes down and the toy train parks up,
empty of it’s bustle now the park has space to sleep in,
lines of tree shadows start to deepen.

And I’ll take the long way round,
not another sound but tyres through the rain.
The band stands without music now,
but the music is singing out to me.
And I see that everyone’s gone home,
see their TVs switch on.

At night the park darkens, roundabouts slow down then stop,
a motor starts and scattered boats are gathered safely up.
At night the park empties, benches fill with huddled shapes,
the air gets cold and nobody comes to gather them all up,
nobody comes to gather them all up.

And I’ll take the long way round,
not another sound but tyres through the rain.
The band stands without music now,
but the music is singing out to me.
And I see that everyone’s gone home,
see that everyone’s unknown,
see their TVs switch on.
