[00:43.89]This city never sleeps
[00:47.41]I hear the people walk by when it’s late
[00:51.71]Sirens bleed through my windowsill
[00:54.71]I can’t close my eyes
[00:56.57]Don’t control what I’m into
[01:01.71]This tower is alive
[01:05.71]The lights that blind keep me awake
[01:10.20]With my hood up and lace untied
[01:13.16]Sleep fills my mind
[01:14.94]Don’t control what I’m into
[01:20.65]London calls me a stranger
[01:24.68]A traveller
[01:29.20]This is now my home, my home
[01:40.26]I’m burning on the back street
[01:43.73]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[01:48.64]And I’m blazing on the street
[01:50.93]What I do isn’t up to you
[01:52.76]And if the city never sleeps
[01:54.30]Then that makes two
[01:56.43]The pavement is my friend
[02:00.63]It will take me where I need to go
[02:04.91]I find it trips me up
[02:07.85]And puts me down
[02:09.84]This is not what I’m used to
[02:14.90]The shop across the road
[02:18.86]Fulfills my needs and gives me company
[02:21.37]When I need it
[02:23.09]Voices speak through my walls
[02:25.50]I don’t think I’m gonna make it
[02:27.67]Past tomorrow
[02:32.86]London calls me a stranger
[02:37.11]A traveller
[02:41.86]This is now my home, my home
[02:52.81]I’m burning on the back street
[02:56.66]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[03:01.02]I’m blazing on the street
[03:04.17]What I do isn’t up to you
[03:05.68]And if the city never sleeps
[03:07.21]Then that makes two
[03:09.08]And my lungs hurt
[03:11.31]And my ears bled
[03:13.95]With the sound of the city life
[03:15.74]Echoed in my head
[03:18.07]Do I need this to keep me alive?
[03:21.87]The traffic stops and starts
[03:23.59]But I need to move along
[03:29.03]I’m from the city where the rain won’t cease,
[03:30.78]Pollution in the air matches that on the streets,
[03:33.28]The black smoke,
[03:33.81]Gets your head in to a muddle like,
[03:35.50]Waliking into elephants, Syringes in a puddle like,
[03:37.79]I was a country boy when I moved out,
[03:39.76]Grew up too fast for my family to find out,
[03:41.95]Now I try to stop my music running into nosedives,
[03:44.38]Can’t resort the arrogance with white lights,
[03:47.08]The city won’t erase me,
[03:48.81]But I can’t help but see just how this dark city changed me,
[03:51.20]It’s all the same scene, music is my life, But now I try to fight whatever
[03:54.88]I need to hide from,
[03:56.16]North, South, East, West, Londons my home now, knees weak,
[03:59.25]But we never slowed down,
[04:00.34]Now I start to do my music properly,
[04:02.91]And stay away from all the negative **** that will follow me.
[04:05.93]London calls me a stranger
[04:14.15]This is not my home, home
[04:25.44]I’m burning on the back street
[04:29.04]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[04:33.88]I’m blazing on the street
[04:36.17]What I do isn’t up to you
[04:38.16]And if the city never sleeps
[04:39.46]Then that makes two
[04:43.66]Burning on the back street,
[04:47.24]Stuck here sitting in the back seat,
[04:51.98]And I’m blazing on the street,
[04:54.45]What I do isn’t upto you,
[04:56.27]And if the city never sleeps then that makes two
