Sun beats hard

On sunset boulevard

Much harder still

In notting hill

A northwind blows

And carries me home

Carries my heart, carries my soul


When cool silks they turn to suede

When young dreams are torn and frayed

The south feels so cold and grey

Today! today the norths too many miles away

Today! today I got to get away


Im driving north

Im heading home

Im driving back

To the place I once belonged


Its all gone silent

The light begins to fade

One man unplugs

The penny arcade

A northwind blows

And carries me home

Carries my heart, carries my soul


When cool silks they turn to suede

When young dreams are torn and frayed

The south feels so cold and grey

Today! today the norths too many miles away

Today! today I got to get away


Im driving north

Im heading home

Im driving back

To the place I once belonged


One sweet bouquet

The flowers strewn

The petals scattered

Here in the north

No dreams are shattered


Im driving north

Im heading home

Im driving back

To the place I once belonged


No we don't feel angry

No we don't feel betrayed

Unlike our fathers

We don't remember better days


No we don't feel angry

No we don't feel betrayed

We just live

In this day and age
