about

2nd single from the album, anatomy.

lyrics

Weaving through busses on the Old Kent Road
Riding my old green Puch between the holes
My head is full of plans, I’d need three lives to see them through
The city holds me, lights control me, buildings inspire me, a village boy jumping red lights

Summer, summer in the city

Admiring plane trees turning green to gold
Fighting snarling faces screaming, Get off the fucking road
You should take the time my friend, to see the tank you’re driving in is uglier than sin, gas guzzling, try cycling, would help you slim down, would help you trim down

Summer, summer in the city

To stay alive on the roads you have to concentrate, dodging
Busses, taxis, van and cars parked in cycle lanes
A driver’s door too fast to dodge
“There’s blood running from your ear”
“There’s blood running from your ear”
It’s winter

Riding down diesel-smelling back-end streets
Watching lives of every stripe unfold
It’s that week in spring where every woman shows the sun her skin, a magnificent, multi-coloured blossoming

Summer, summer in the city
