Pop Machine

By Nicky Byrne/Ronan Hardiman/Don Mescall

 

Packed a suitcase tight

For an early flight

Kissed the kids goodbye

Couldn’t sleep last night

Feel i’m running blind

Too much on my mind

Right now

 

It’s a brand new place

With a month to go

Babe i’m missing you

And i know you know

Got your cheeky text

Put the smile back on my face

 

Passing neon signs

See our name in lights

People on thier way

To our show tonight

 

Stepping on the stage

Hear the crowd erupt

Then the lights come on

Then we fire it up

 

Pop machine

Ridin’ in the pop machine

Haven’t you heard

We’re rulin’ the world

Livin’ the dream

 

Pop machine

Ridin’ in the pop machine

Haven’t you heard

We’re rulin’ the world

Livin’ the dream

 

Another tv show

Someone we don’t know

In the makeup room

We’re on J Leno

The producer says

Hurry up it’s time to wait

 

Pose for photographs

Do the backstage greets

Sign the autographs

Try to make em laugh

Ate some Macky D’s

Choked on agents fees

Oh these long world tours

Man they’re killing me

 

Pop machine

Ridin’ in the pop machine

Haven’t you heard

We’re rulin’ the world

Livin’ the dream

Sing it

 

Woh oh oh oh

Woh oh oh oh

Woh oh oh oh

Woh oh

Haven’t you heard

We’re rulin’ the world

Livin’ the dream

 

In the first class lounge

Still can hear the sound

Of the encore screams

From the crazy crowd

Guess we lived the dream

Of this pop machine

Now the private jet

Yeah we’re homeward bound

 

Pop machine

Ridin’ in the pop machine

Haven’t you heard

We’re rulin’ the world

Livin’ the dream

 

Pop machine

Ridin’ in the pop machine

Haven’t you heard

We’re rulin’ the world

Livin’ the dream

 

Sing it

 

Woh oh oh oh

Woh oh oh oh

Woh oh oh oh

Woh oh

Haven’t you heard

We’re rulin the world

Livin’ the dream

 

Pop machine

Ridin’ in the pop machine

Haven’t you heard

We’re rulin’ the world

We’re livin’ the dream
