lyrics

Beneath the city clock

An ironed-looking shirt
Again will have to do
The toast pops up and then
Milk splashes in the brew

With time slipping by
And the outside world in spin
Step out, my lunch in hand,
Into it all again

I won’t stop, though I catch myself wondering what
Good it’s got, here beneath the city clock

Put earphones in
Blast the doubts out of mind
Get on a crowded bus
Nod and mouth the better lines

Off to where I’ll go
And whatever I may find
I see I’m not alone
In passing strangers’ eyes.

I won’t stop, though I catch myself wondering what
Good it’s got, here beneath the city clock

Won’t stop, though I catch myself wondering what
Good it’s got, stood here beneath this city clock
