lyrics

Come on let's talk about the weather
Let's get it over with
We both know it's not getting any better
Best to see it as a long wet kiss

Cause Lisa wrote it is the reason
The spaces are so green
From Kelvingrove to Bellahouston
And all the nooks and crannies in-between

So can we let go of the false alarms
And those cliches bearing down on me
So we can welcome you with open arms

Come on let's talk about the razors
The credit we still clutch
Dreamed up by an alcoholic baker
Is it time to kick it into touch

Cause Johnny Stark is in the past now
He wasn't even real
They like to paint us as gritty
But this is no mean city

So can we let go of the false alarms
And those cliches bearing down on me
So we can welcome you with open arms

So can we let go of the false alarms
Those old chestnuts raining down on me
So we can welcome you with open arms

Come on let's talk about religion
Our not-so-secret stain
And how the lines we've traced through the past
Have turned Christ back into Cain

We need to re-write the script
We need fresh blood on the stage
We need the plot to thicken
We need our hearts to quicken

So can we let go of the false alarms
And those cliches bearing down on me
So we can welcome you with open arms

So can we let go of the false alarms
Those old chestnuts raining down on me
So we can welcome you with open arms
