Archway People

When you told me your dream I wanted to cry

You almost looked happy please don’t tell me it’s true

All our neighbours are old, street-lamp buzzes all night

There’re some nice parts of London

You can see them from here

We both walk til late, catch the fifty-eight

Usually asleep by eleven but somehow it didn’t seem right

When you turned and said “Let’s go mad tonight”

So we drank and danced – for once I felt close to you

You’re not going to change

We’re not moving away

We’re staying here.
