"Following Camden Down" as written by and Colin Meloy....
I'm straight wasted
It's a little alcohol on Sunday
And we are lost and found the Underground tonight

You're OK
Got your head screwed on right
Taking contraband to meet the band tonight

Swim the length of serpentine
To meet you on the Northern Line
You and me following Camden down

Euston Square
Both of us rushing through turnstiles
And we are so naive to think we believe this is right

And you say "I scored"
Buy that shit for a penny more
As we wind and wend through odds and ends tonight

[Chorus]

Leicester Square has lost its fair
Pigeon painted silver after noon
Unless you've got something better to do
I'm sticking with you
And we'll wander the dark streets of London

The streets all wet
Looks like their closing up shop early
And all the mods and punks have bought their junk and are home

You're OK
You've got your head screwed on right
We are holding hands to meet the band tonight

[Chorus]

    General Commenthow could no one have commented on this song! its so beautiful, typical young love that makes it seem like nothing else even exists or matters.
    It also has an air of apprehension, like they know that this will all end soon when they mature and grow up. "And we are so naive to think we believe this is right"
    Straight memories of being young drunk and stupid, but how perfect and beautiful that can be

    "You're OK
    You've got your head screwed on right
    We are holding hands to meet the band tonight"
    amazing.
