[00:43.63]This city never sleeps
[00:47.43]I hear the people walk by when it’s late
[00:51.33]Sirens bleed through my windowsill
[00:54.00]I can’t close my eyes
[00:55.65]Don’t control what I’m into
[01:00.85]This tower is alive
[01:05.00]The lights that blind keep me awake
[01:08.78]With my hood up and lace untied
[01:11.60]Sleep fills my mind
[01:13.23]Don’t control what I’m into
[01:18.51]London calls me a stranger
[01:22.52]A traveller
[01:27.08]This is now my home, my home
[01:37.63]I’m burning on the back street
[01:41.28]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[01:45.61]And I’m blazing on the street
[01:48.04]What I do isn’t up to you
[01:49.86]And if the city never sleeps
[01:51.04]then that makes two
[01:53.17]The pavement is my friend
[01:57.05]And it’ll take me where I need to go
[02:00.95]I find it trips me up
[02:03.87]and puts me down
[02:05.47]This is not what I’m used to
[02:10.69]The shop across the road
[02:14.72]fulfills my needs and gives me company
[02:17.19]when I need it
[02:18.61]Voices speak through my walls
[02:20.47]And I, I don’t think I’m gonna make it
[02:22.92]past tomorrow
[02:28.19]London calls me a stranger
[02:32.18]A traveller
[02:36.85]This is now my home, my home
[02:47.39]I’m burning on the back street
[02:50.91]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[02:55.35]And I’m blazing on the street
[02:57.78]What I do isn’t up to you
[02:59.61]And if the city never sleeps
[03:00.68]then that makes two
[03:02.86]And my lungs hurt
[03:04.98]And my ears bled
[03:07.32]With the sound of the city life
[03:08.88]echoed in my head
[03:11.51]Do I need this to keep me alive?
[03:15.15]The traffic stops and starts
[03:16.57]But I need to move along
[03:28.53]I’m from a city where the rain won’t cease
[03:30.28]Pollution in the air matches that on the street
[03:32.47]The black smoke gets your head into a muddle like
[03:34.57]walking into elephant syringes in the puddle like
[03:36.98]I was a country boy when I moved out
[03:38.91]Grew up too fast for my family to find out
[03:41.08]Now I try to stop my music running into nosedives
[03:43.14]Can’t resort to arrogance with white lies
[03:44.96]Now
[03:45.83]This city won’t erase me
[03:47.32]But I can’t help to see how this dark city changed me
[03:49.94]It’s all the same scene, music is my life
[03:51.65]But I try to fight whatever I need to hide from
[03:54.30]North, south, east, west, London’s my home now
[03:56.85]Knees weak, but we never slow down
[03:58.50]Now I start to do my music properly
[04:00.47]And stay from all the negative **** that will follow me
[04:03.62]London calls me a stranger
[04:12.15]This is not my home
[04:18.62]Home
[04:22.45]I’m burning on the back street
[04:26.15]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[04:30.48]And I’m blazing on the street
[04:32.80]What I do isn’t up to you
[04:34.66]And if the city never sleeps
[04:35.88]then that makes two
[04:39.90]I’m burning on the back street
[04:43.44]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[04:47.91]And I’m blazing on the street
[04:50.32]What I do isn’t up to you
[04:52.14]And if the city never sleeps
[04:53.22]then that makes two
[04:54.63]
