x

I've been walking
In the same way as I did
Missing out
The cracks in the pavement
And tutting my heel
And strutting my feet
"Is there anything
I can do for you dear?
Is there anyone I can call?"
"No and thank you, please Madam
I ain't lost, just wandering"
 
Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh, the people I've met
 
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of this world
Are the wonders of my world
 
I like it in the city
When the air
Is so thick and opaque
I love to see everybody
In short skirts
Shorts and shades
I like it in the city
When two worlds collide
You get the people
And the government
Everybody taking
Different sides
 
Shows that
We ain't gonna stand shit
Shows
That we are united
Shows
That we ain't gonna take it
Shows
That we ain't gonna stand shit
Shows that we are united
 
Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh the people I've met
 
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of this world
Are the wonders of my world

This song is very engaging... not sure if it's the melody, the words, or the singer, but it just evokes raw emotions...

Honestly, I wasn't very thrilled over her unique vocalisation at first, but it gradually "grew" on me...

She's a great singer! I heart Adele!

haunting piano intro, me likey

I wasn't gonna play it coz I thought it's gonna be some club song again.


Glad I did. Good find. Swiped. You have been most useful. Now go and find me more. /shoo

When i first heard it, it was a club song.

........................ *shuffles out the door*

Do check out other songs in her album, 19, if you haven't. The compilation of songs in this album was way good, beyond words. At least that's for me.

Sure thanks for the tip.

Its a great track thanks for listing. I remember those years when I was in the UK during the US-led Iraq attack and I was on the streets with placards someone made protesting. This passage in particular just invoked all the 'Londoness' of time past. Haunting.
