It's a big big world and you can do what you like
You can do anything you want because darling it's your life
But don't go back to Dalston
Don't go up the junction
Don't go round the houses
Well just come back to me

Come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me
It's a big big world and you can take your time
You've got your friends and I've got mine

Don't go back to Dalston
Don't go up the junction
Don't go round the houses
Well just come back to me

Come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me
(Oh)
Just come back, come back, come back
Come back, come back, come back [Repeats]
Come back, come back, come back to me

    General Commenti think maybe in that interview johnny was just trying to protect pete doherty.........the are far too many references to him and his lifestyle for it not to be...
    "don't go round the houses" clearly refers to the council estates in dalston, famous for housing crackheads and dealers.. it is a plea for pete to just get off the drugs and get away from the people that are supplying him eith them
