Been walking round these city streets
Like I’m walking round my living room
Pavements wet like lino sheets
Autumn light goes dark too soon

Things have changed since the beginning of time.
From the beginning of the week
This place has grown and shrunk in a year
Buildings fall and friends disappear
Things will always move.

We’re still here moving dust
Talking about friends with wander lust
You say this city is dead for you
But it will stand long after you

Things have changed since the beginning of time.
From the beginning of the week
This place has grown and shrunk in a year
Buildings fall and friends disappear
Things will always move.

I never could lie, maybe when I was younger-
Maybe last week!
You left and asked, “is it all the same?”
All I could say was,
“Starlings roost as dusk sets in”

Things have changed since the beginning of time.
From the beginning of the week
This place has grown and shrunk in a year
Buildings fall and friends disappear
Things will always move.

Been walking round these city streets
Like I’m walking round these city streets
Walking round these city streets
I’m walking round these city streets
