lyrics

I’m out for the night and I haven’t much change
Will you get the next round in for me
The night is still young and this prodigal son
Has been once again brought to his knees

I know I asked the same as you just yesterday
But I’m struggling with the old currency
If I had a penny for every song that I’d sung
I’d do all my drinking for free

Chorus:
And no-o-o the holy ghost means nothing at all to me
And ooooh I know I know we struggle in life to be free
And no-o the holy ghost will never be more than dreams
And oh oh I know that I can’t see as far as the eye can see

It seems in this life we may never get far
From snapped strings on the floor of an irish bar
If that’s all we’re worth and if that’s all we are
Then I suppose it’s no burden to me

But if life was all roses and old river sides
Then what use would we have for our brilliant minds
That get us in trouble most of the time
But allow us the strength to believe

Chorus

And I suppose we’ll spend pennies on meaningless trivial shit
And I suppose we’ll spend hundreds on new phones and the right clothes to fit
But where are the pennies we should have spent enjoying ourselves
And if you’ve got millions why not share them with everyone else
Because millions are pennies if there’s no one to share in your wealth

Chorus
