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

    My immediate reaction was of this person returning to her hometown after 9/11, having lost childhood friends in the tragedy. (i know she is not an american... The story can be ficticious... Or she may know of a story about one of the scores of victims from other countries) i heard it first in june of this year, so it isn't the date now that affects my thinking. In the big city, it's easier to get caught up in the flurry of activity around you... But returning home... All your feelings are laid bare and resound, in the quiet around you...

    Makes me think of how it'll be when i'm older and i come back to where i grew up. Revisiting all of my old haunts and remembering the people who were once so important to me. It's weird to think that all of the stuff that matters so much to me now will one day just be a memory, a part of my hometown glory.

    She's returning to the place where she grew up, probably her home town. "i've been walking in the same way as i did"
    she's reliving her memories as she walks through her town. Some notices her and thinks she lost. She response that her wonderment just made her feel lost. She's remembering where she grew up and everyone she met. That they made her what she is today.
