I used to wait for her outside the school gates,
She's fifteen and pregnant, I guess it's too late,
I guess I'm too young, but I do what I can
She gave birth at fifteen, said the baby's not mine
So I get ahead in life, and get ahead in crime
It runs in the family, of old oh some time
It's Strangeways, Horfield...

[Chorus]
Where goes time
?
Where goes time
?

I'm a stranger as well, I'm dying myself
I guess I'm too young, but I do what I can

I used to wait for her outside the school gates
She's fifteen and pregnant, I guess it's too late
I guess I'm too young, but I do what I can

[Chorus: x2]

I used to wait for her outside the school gates
