lyrics

This City

standing beside no-one
A city on the hill
Buzzing and droning
Late, lonely homes
Sirens, and silence
Bridges, off license

Dreams of the castle
To guard me sleeping
Would tower blocks hide
What I held inside
Did I think
They ever would?

This city’s seen
My gates and walls
It hid a garden growing
You never found
Whats inside
Cold shoulders
Always turning

Here in this city
Shattered northern hearts
Slurs of the drunken
Houses taken apart
Grace, and beauty
These streets ring

Reaching my home
Memories fly past
Time never waits
Lovers, then cots
Those firecrackers
And baubles

This city’s seen
My gates and walls
It hid a garden growing
You never found
Whats inside
Cold shoulders
Always turning
