Leave This City
gone forever

the writing on the wall

they've boarded up the cinema

strawberry dreams & the dust-filled beams

shut down in a modern town



see you walking

see you talking



recollection

on streets you used to know

forgotten pleasures smoulder

the images fade but the town won't let them go



sleepwalking

see you talking



feel the city inside you

leave this city behind you



drive wherever the roads will take you to

down beside a river frozen brown

january days & their scarecrow trees

so cold - feel your ears burn



see you walking

see you talking



feel the city inside you

leave this city behind you



past & present

they converge on every side

the wires all get tangled

when now & then collide

bittersweet taste of a time & another place before



sleep walking

see you talking



feel the city inside you

feel this city define you

leave this city behind you
