And there you were Hanging off the back of the train Threw your bag and followed it down Rolling and tripping and laughing and screaming Into my arms And there we were Frozen in the railway lights Fields of flowers and tangled grass Hiding and kissing and dreaming and running Into the night Like dogs running free Like dogs running free Like dogs running free Like dogs running free And there you are Hiding in the back of my mind Rolling fields and railway lights Living and breathing and fading to nothing Never again Like dogs running free Like dogs running free Like dogs running free Like dogs running free Like dogs running free Like dogs running free Like dogs running free Like dogs running free

Forget about the worries The problems dragging you down Don't listen to the voices The naysayers who build their defensive fortress of a life on negativity Believe what you want to believe Believe in me Cos this song will make you happy This song will make you young This song will make you beautiful This song will make you fun If you're looking for a girl This song will help you get her Cos it's scientifically proven This song will make you better (better) better (better) better (better) better (better) Ignore the intellectuals They'll tell you things aren't true You can prove anything with numbers But numbers can't make life or hold your hand while you're afraid of your mortality You think therefore you are A superstar Cos this song will make you happy This song will make you young This song will make you beautiful This song will make you fun If you're looking for a girl This song will help you get her Cos it's scientifically proven This song will make you better (better) better (better) better (better) better (better) [spoken] Ladies and gentlemen, I look around me today and I see a number of people. I see sad faces. Sad, grey, lonely faces with sad, pathetic eyes and tiny, wrinkled noses and disgusting ??. But look around you, people. Look at that girl over there. Look at that man next to you. Feel the love between you. They are people like you who cherish the beautiful things in the world. They want love, they want kittens, cupboards with curtains in and jackets and shoes and trainers that they can wear on crisp Autumn days as they wander through the streets kicking leaves up into the air. They want love as well. Look around you, everyone. The world is full of beauty, majesty, rainbows, kittens, unicorns, Scrabble, all sorts of beautiful words! This song (look at her hair again) This song (touch her on the knee) This song (kiss her face) This song (life is beautiful) You are a special person You matter to the world You are an individual And you can get the girl Your money problem's over She's torn up the divorce Your bad knee feels much better And all the world is yours (yours) yours (yours) yours (yours) yours (yours)

He thinks he's got it sorted And no-one's going to notice That underneath the outfit He's lost and insecure The fashionista haircut Makes him look much younger In the endless Facebook story Of his Hipstamatic life He thinks he's found his people The ones who understand him Like loafer-wearing boy scouts With a uniform of cool The conversation's never Emotionally engaging But deep inside he knows they understand Where he comes from If only they knew He grew up in a village in Wiltshire His dad buys his socks And he's only ever kissed his mum His flatmate's name is Spider But really he's called Derek He works in multimedia And deals a bit of weed All their friends will be there For Spider's installation It's a private viewing Because no-one wants to come If only they knew The whole thing's accidental It's not really art He was only trying to move some boxes If only they knew He's staring at his iPhone Wondering how to use it Listening to the waiter Talk about his screenplay He's supposed to be creative He bought himself a Moleskine He doesn't want to write in it In case he gets it wrong If only they knew He sleeps in a Hypercolour t-shirt He doesn't like Foals And he doesn't mind working with spreadsheets He finds his jeans constricting Regrets his one tattoo He finds it quite exhausting Making statements with his shoes If only they knew

Standing silent, strangely still Placed here alone Glancing up they catch my eye All these things I've known Falling through the air They crash beside me to the ground Falling all the time Piling up around my feet I begin to climb Falling through the air Falling through the air Do I believe these things I see Old memories come back to me All I can do is jump Standing silent, strangely still Placed here alone Glancing up they catch my eye All these things I've known Falling through the air

about

Ben Walker (Little Fish), Spencer Walker (A Silent Film) and Nick Gill (The Monroe Transfer, Fireworks Night) had three days to write and record an album. Dogs Running Free has everything from catchy powerpop to massive prog Hammond wig-outs, and occasionally a musical saw.

– Christian Payne, Cyber-journalist
