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

    brilliant 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

    Brilliant 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...

    a 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.

Just listening for the 784,654th time....and it's just perfect in every way. Just incredible. The only reason it was remade was to scoop up a boatload of money from a more modern and accepting audience. But it is a completely different song than the other one that sounds slapped together in a few takes without a thought for the meaning. This song captivates me still, after 50+ years. Takes me to the deep South and the poverty of some who lived thru truly hard times. And the powerful spirit of a poor young girl being abandoned to her future with only a red dress and her wits to keep her alive. She not only stayed alive, she turned her hard beginnings around, became self sufficient, successful and someone with respect for herself. She didn't let the naysayers and judgers stop her. She's the one sitting in the drivers seat at the end. So, not a song about a poor girl, but a song of hope and how you can rise up no matter how far down you started. There is a huge difference between a singer who simply belts out a song that is on a page in front of them, and someone who can convey an entire experience with their voice. Telling not just a story with words, but taking you inside it and making you feel like you are there, with their interpretation.

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
