lyrics

So many sunny afternoons
Choosing flavours of ice-cream in North Laine
Still remember my first flumes at the King Alfred
Wait that was Hove, actually
Best not to think of how much
Money I spent at the Palace Pier arcade
When people say those were the days
Here that is every day

It’s not my home town
But it means the world to me
That time spent growing up
By the sea

As a teen watched Alice Cooper
Get his head lopped off at the Brighton centre
Saw Reel Big Fish at The Concorde 2
Caught a pick and got Less Than Jake’s set list
And the time we partied so hard
And got on stage with Andrew W.K.
Not to mention the nights I played with LCA
Slapping that bass

It’s not my home town
But it means the world to me
That time spent growing up
By the sea

I could spend all day eating fish and chips on that stony beach
I hope the West Pier never gets fixed; I love it how it is
20 minutes from my home’s where the heart is

Can’t help but stop in GAK
Or is it G A K where I got my first stomp box
Then maybe off to Dave’s
To browse all the comics and pick up the next One Piece
There’s so many great places to eat
If you can’t decide then don’t miss this
Two words: Burger Brothers!
Go try it, you won't regret it

It’s not my home town
But it means the world to me
That time spent growing up
By the sea

I could spend all day eating fish and chips on that stony beach
I hope the West Pier never gets fixed; I love it how it is
20 minutes from my home’s where the heart is

It’s not my home town
But it means the world to me
That time spent growing up
By the sea

It’s not my home town
But it means the world to me
That time spent growing up
By the sea

I could spend all day eating fish and chips on that stony beach
I hope the West Pier never gets fixed; I love it how it is
20 minutes from my home’s where the heart is

I could spend all day eating fish and chips on that stony beach
I hope the West Pier never gets fixed, I love it how it is
20 minutes from my home’s where the heart is
20 minutes from my home’s where the heart is
20 minutes from my home’s where the heart is
