Information

Lyrics

I came back to my old city
With fierce determination
And I couldn't find my way out of the station

It's all changed
You were there
Departing, starting
A trek I had once took
With that "no-one's gonna stop me when I feel this way" look

Apparent, apparent
Heir apparent
You think it's so easy, I tell you - it isn't
But you may change minds with your winning smile

I fell down in my old city
Such sad degradation
So I tried to make my way back to the station

You were still there
Gleaming and leaving
Wide-eyed and awestruck
Saying "How can anybody hate me
If I love them first off ?"

Apparent, apparent
Heir apparent
You think it's so easy, I tell you - it isn't
But you may change minds with your winning smile

Heir, heir, heir
Heir, heir, heir
Heir, heir, heir
Heir, heir, heir
But you may be OK, I don't know

I'll see you back here
In a few bruised years
Pray
I'll see you here
I'll see you here
I'll see you here

Apparent, apparent
Heir apparent
You say that you want it, I'm sure that you'll get it
They'll seduce your heart and then they'll slap your arse

Heir, heir, heir
Heir, heir, heir
Heir, heir, heir
Heir, heir, heir
