"This Time" as written by Brett Anderson and Richard Oakes....
Oh day after day every morning
The city sighs and cars collide
Oh we take the train through the winter hinterland and garage bands
And we wash it away we wash it away this grey wash it away

Oh 'cause this time is yours and mine
Oh hear the city sound see the lonely crowds
This scene is you and me
Oh in the lazy sun we're the only ones

Oh day after day every morning
The roundabouts will take us south
Past every train in every station
Traffic signs and circle lines

'Cause this time is yours and mine
Oh hear the city sound, see the lonely crowds
This scene is you and me
Oh in the lazy sun, we're the only ones

This time is yours and mine
Oh, we're the city sounds, we're the underground
This scene is you and me
Oh, we're the lazy suns, we're the only ones

    General Commentbrilliant song about urban city life and its inherent dullness. the first verse is what got me hooked on this song, cars collide in citys so often everyday, it hardly matters lol

    General CommentBrilliant song indeed, especially for a B-side track. Suede really had a great collection of B-sides ('have you ever been this low?' (WOW!), 'money', killing of a flash boy',...). This song is simple yet very effective. I've always imagined this being played at my funeral ;-)
    Sad to see so little comments on their songs...

    General Commenta beautiful song. One of the greatest B-sides from any band ever. A song about rising above the grey doldrums of urban decay. Right up there with Bowie's Heroes in terms of self indulgent, transcendental epic-ness. The keyboards and guitar on this are perfection.
