The City

Em D C 

Em             D     C 
 This city never sleeps 

Em                                  D     C 
 I hear the people walk by when it's late 

Em                                     D     C 
Sirens bleed through my window sill, I can't close my eyes 

Em                       D     C 
Don't control what I'm into 

Em              D     C 
This tower is alive 

Em                              D     C 
The lights that blind keep me awake 

Em                              D     C 
With my hood up and lace untied, sleep fills my mind 

Em                       D     C 
Don't control what I'm into 

C         D                 Em         G 
   London calls me a stranger, a traveller 

C         D          G 
   This is now my home, my home 

Em     D            C 
Oh, oh, I'm burning on the back streets 

Em        D     C 
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat, 

Em              D         C 
Oh, oh, and I'm blazing on the street 

    C 
And what I do isn't up to you,  

           D 
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two 

Em                D     C 
The pavement is my friend 

Em                                D     C 
  It will take me where I need to go 

Em                    D     C 
I find it trips me up, and puts me down 

Em                    D     C 
This is not what Iím used to 

Em                   D     C 
  The shop across the road 

Em                                 D     C 
   Fulfills my needs and gives me company, when I need it 

Em                            D             C 
Voices speak through my walls, I donít think Iím gonna make it 

Em         D     C 
Past tomorrow 

C         D                Em         G 
   London calls me a stranger, a traveller 

C         D          G 
   This is now my home, my home 

Em     D            C 
Oh, oh, I'm burning on the back streets 

Em        D     C 
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat, 

Em              D         C 
Oh, oh, and I'm blazing on the street 

    C 
And what I do isn't up to you,  

           D 
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two 

C                  D                  
   And my lungs hurt, And my ears bled, 

Em                               G 
  With the sound of the city life, echoed in my head 

C               D           
  Do I need this, to keep me alive 

G 
The traffic stops and starts but I need to move along 

Em 
Iím from a city where the rain wonít cease 

  D                          C 
Pollution in the air matches that on the street 

     Em 
The black smoke gets you head into a muddle, like 

D               C 
Walking into elephant syringes in the puddle, like 

Em 
  I was a country boy when I moved out 

D                     C 
Grew up too fast for my family to find out 

Em 
Now I try to stop my music running into nosedives 

D                              C 
Canít resort to arrogance with white lies 

Em 
  This city wonít erase me 

    D                            C 
But I canít help to see how this dark city changed me 

Em 
Itís all the same scene, music is my life 

   D                   C 
But I try to fight whatever I need to hide from 

Em 
  North, South, East, West,  

            D                     C 
Londonís my home now, knees weak, but we never slow down 

Em 
Now I start to do my music properly 

    D                     C 
And stay from all the negative shit that will follow me 

C         D                 Em         G 
   London calls me a stranger, a traveller 

C         D          G 
   This is now my home, my home 

Em     D            C 
Oh, oh, I'm burning on the back streets 

Em        D     C 
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat, 

Em              D         C 
Oh, oh, and I'm blazing on the street 

    C 
And what I do isn't up to you,  

           D 
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two 

Em     D            C 
Oh, oh, I'm burning on the back streets 

Em        D     C 
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat, 

Em              D         C 
Oh, oh, and I'm blazing on the street 

    C 
And what I do isn't up to you,  

           D                                     Em 
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two
