Let's begin at the beginning
We're lovers and we're losers
We're heroes and we're pioneers
We're beggars and we're choosers
Skirting around the edges of the ideal demographic
We're almost on the guest list
But we're always stuck in traffic

Watched our close associates
Often play their parts
Chatting up the "it" girls
And they're tearing up the charts
While we were paying with coppers to get our rounds in at the bar
We're the C team we're the almost famous old friends of the stars


Justin is the last, of great the romantic poets
He's the only one among us who is ever gonna make it
And we planned the revolution from a cheap Southampton bistro
I don't remember details, but there were English boys with Banjos

Jay is our St George and he's standing on a wooden chair
And he sings songs and he slays dragons and he's losing all his hair

And Adam is the resurrected spirit of Gram Parsons
In plaid instead of Rhinestone and living in South London

And no one's really clear about Tommy's job description
But it's pretty clear he's vital to the whole damn operation

And Dave Danger smiles at strangers, Tree's the safest girl I know
Zoe and Harps will scamper off to victory in the city we call home

And we won't change our ways
We will proud remain
When the glory fades
When the glory fades


Yeah I am sick and tired of people who are living on the B-list
Yeah they're waiting to be famous, and they're wondering why they do this

And I know I'm not the one who is habitually optimistic
But I'm the one who's got the microphone here so just remember this

Yeah, well life is about love, lost minutes and lost evenings
About fire in our bellies and about furtive little feelings
And the aching amplitudes that set our needles all a-flickering
And they help us with remembering that the only thing that's left to do is live
Yeah the only thing that's left to do is live
After all the loving and the losing
All the heroes and the pioneers
The only thing that's left to do, is get another round in at the bar
