Powderfinger - My Kind Of Scene Lyrics




Tell me where I'm
supposed to begin
an unhappy life working
some kind of dead end job
for everything you thought you had
has gone from worse to bad

Lean to the side
whisper it quiet
the end is in sight to working
all night around the clock
for everything you thought you had
has gone from worse to bad

But it's not my kind of scene oh yeah
footprints on the other side
remind me where I've been oh yeah
I'll watch from the other side

Tell me where I'm
supposed to begin
move out of sight and onto
some life I'm dreaming of
for everything you thought you had
has gone from worse to bad
so I'll just wait and watch the wheels
while you're turning back

But it's not my kind of scene oh yeah
footprints on the other side
remind me where I've been oh yeah
I'll watch from the other side

Pulls me over and it drags me under
Pulls me over and it drags me under
Alright now alright now

  32. Stuart Cox

    These guys are, for me the last great Aussie rock band. At age 54, I’ve seen The Angels, Midnight Oil, Divinyls mental as anything INXS etc. when Powderfinger called it a day the good old days of my youth kind of stopped too. Ahh, the pub rock of the 80’s and 90’s

  41. Gambit The Exiled

    Tell me where I'm supposed to begin
    An unhappy life working some kind of dead end job
    For everything you thought you had
    Has gone from worse to bad
    Lean to the side whisper it quiet
    The end is in sight to working all night around the clock
    For everything you thought you had
    Has gone from worse to bad
    But it's not my kind of scene, oh yeah
    Footprints on the other side
    Remind me where I've been, oh yeah
    I'll watch from the other side
    Tell me where I'm supposed to begin
    Move out of sight and onto some life I'm dreaming of
    For everything you thought you had
    Has gone from worse to bad
    So I'll just wait and watch the wheels
    While you're turning back
    But it's not my kind of scene, oh yeah
    Footprints on the other side
    Remind me where I've been, oh yeah
    I'll watch…

  59. Kings of Evan

    Any composition (& there aren't many great ones) that can arose nostalgia is nothing short of brilliant.
    And Powderfinger do it time & time again with such grace.

  60. Dennis Drake

  67. Emma Muir

    Powderfinger were staple music in my household growing up. My brother especially loved the band. He passed away in 2008, and since then this song has a new meaning for me. Thank you for writing beautiful, soulful music that helps heal me. And thank you for the song 'Pockets' on the Vulture Street album.

  79. e k

    I am reading their book, Footprints, and am getting a whole new grasp on how great this band was. So fucking angry with my old boss who had tickets to the Caloundra Music Festival but didn't go cause the fuckin loser thought it was raining. He should've given me his ticket. I totally understand the guys wanted to call it quits, but Im pissed off I never got to see these guys live. Its the same frustration as never got to see INXS that I had tickets for and never got to see.
