Around The Plynth/Gasoline Alley

This song is by Faces and appears on the album Five Guys Walk Into a Bar... (2004).

And thought exactly the same as I'm thinking now
Every night for a year I slept alone
My cold damp room looks worse to me, no no no.

A fear of death that creeps on every night

When the weather's better and the rails unfreeze
And the wind won't whistle 'round my knees
I'll put on my weather suit and catch you in the train
I'll be home before the milk's upon the door.

Goin' home, runnin' home, down the Gasoline Alley where I was born
Goin' home and I'm runnin' home, down the Gasoline Alley where I was born.

Never knew what it was to be loved
I never knew what it was to be loved
And from my hometown I was torn
At the tender age of four
I was livin' by a homemade law
I never knew when I was to be late
I never knew what it was to be loved
I never knew what it was to be loved
