Ed Sheeran – The City (Live)

[01:24.53]This city never sleeps
[01:27.89]I hear the people walk by when it’s late
[01:32.16]Sirens bleed through my windowsill
[01:34.63]I can’t close my eyes
[01:36.36]Don’t control what I’m into
[01:41.67]This tower is alive
[01:45.69]The lights that blind keep me awake
[01:49.46]With my hood up and lace untied
[01:52.21]Sleep fills my mind
[01:53.89]Don’t control what I’m into (yeah)
[01:59.28]London calls me a stranger
[02:03.17]A traveller
[02:08.11]This is now my home, my home
[02:18.43]I’m burning on the back street
[02:22.04]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[02:26.49]And I’m blazing on the street
[02:28.82]What I do isn’t up to you
[02:30.68]And if the city never sleeps
[02:31.77]then that makes two
[02:33.87]The pavement is my friend
[02:37.86]And it’ll take me where I need to go
[02:41.98]I find it trips me up
[02:44.58]and puts me down
[02:46.16]This is not what I’m used to
[02:51.52]The shop across the road
[02:55.54]fulfills my needs and gives me company
[02:57.76]when I need it
[02:59.46]Voices speak through my walls
[03:01.01]And I, I don’t think I’m gonna make it
[03:03.54]past tomorrow
[03:08.74]London calls me a stranger
[03:12.79]A traveller
[03:17.45]This is now my home, my home
[03:28.12]I’m burning on the back street
[03:31.57]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[03:35.99]And I’m blazing on the street
[03:38.47]What I do isn’t up to you
[03:40.37]And if the city never sleeps
[03:41.49]then that makes two
[03:43.85]My lungs hurt
[03:45.80]And my ears bled
[03:48.07]With the sound of the city life
[03:49.73]echoed in my head
[03:52.48]Do I need this to keep me alive?
[03:55.98]The traffic stops and starts
[03:57.67]But I need to move along
[04:03.32]I’m from a city where the rain won’t cease
[04:05.13]Pollution in the air matches that on the street
[04:07.04]The black smoke gets you head into a muddle like
[04:09.32]walking into elephant syringes in the puddle like
[04:11.72]I was a country boy when I moved out
[04:13.62]Grew up too fast for my family to find out
[04:15.76]Now I try to stop my music running into nosedives
[04:17.75]Can’t resort to arrogance with white lies
[04:19.34]Now
[04:20.18]This city won’t erase me
[04:21.81]But I can’t help to see how this dark city changed me
[04:24.24]It’s all the same scene, music is my life
[04:26.00]But I try to fight whatever I need to hide from
[04:28.80]North, south, east, west, London’s my home now
[04:31.24]Knees weak, but we never slow down
[04:32.96]Now I start to do my music properly
[04:34.97]And stay from all the negative **** that will follow me
[04:38.01]London calls me a stranger
[04:46.95]This is not my home now
[04:53.04]Home
[04:57.44]I’m burning on the back street
[05:01.05]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[05:05.41]And I’m blazing on the street
[05:07.79]What I do isn’t up to you
[05:09.55]And if the city never sleeps
[05:10.79]then that makes two
[05:14.97]I’m burning on the back street
[05:18.49]Stuck here sitting in the backseat
[05:22.85]And I’m blazing on the street
[05:25.28]What I do isn’t up to you
[05:27.22]And if the city never sleeps
[05:28.48]then that makes two
[05:30.13]
