Boys with a basketball
Kept in a cage to save us all
And I walked the long way home
Down all the streets we never go down
We never go down

He must've been ten years old
Pressed to the steamy window
This is where dreams are born
Watching the Soho girls perform
The girls perform

And you are on the other side of the city that I cross at night
On a sequin trail of red, red lights
I'll be watching all the dirty birds
In flight
In flight

This is the secret life
This is where TV came to die
And here is where sex is sold
Twenty pound notes are passed and rolled
They're passed and rolled

They cover the walls in flowers
To muffle the drinkers after hours
I kicked the curb right there
Cities are sordid love affairs
Are love affairs

And you are on the other side of the waters that we'll swim at night
And it's not quite home yet
But that's alright
I'll be watching all the dirty birds
In flight
In flight

I will grow my wings and fly away from here, I will
I will grow my wings and I will fly away from here
We will grow our wings and we will fly away from here, we will
From here, we will
We will grow our wings and we will fly away from here
We will grow our wings and we will fly away from here, we will
From here, we will
We will grow our wings and we will fly away from here, we will
From here, we will
We will grow our wings and we will fly away from here, we will
From here, we will
We will grow our wings and we will fly away from here, we will
From here, we will
We will grow our wings and we will fly away from here, we will
From here, we will
We will grow our wings and we will fly away from here, we will
From here, we will
