Noel Brazil
First Days in the loft I thought I might live, new faces
New streets.
No cash in the hand was making me thing, what now? what's
Next?
That's not to say I was'nt welcomed I was welcomed I was
Taken in.
I took the bait when I was hunted I was wretched I was
Freezing.

Chorus

Metropolitan ave standing tall in the winter snow, I'll
Be back with you before I go
Don't run like a dog I know how it feels without heat
Without love.
Ran free in the park like Jekyll and Hyde, me and Pete,
Me and Pete.
Up half the night unwilling witness to some strangers
Feud.
Deep underground I hear the notes of some old gamblers
Blues.

Metropolitan etc
This rose will never blossom now it needs light shining
On it's back.
This road will never take me out, I've been stopped in
My tracks.
There goes the night and now the sun begins to filter
Through,
I took the bait when I was hunted I was wretched did'nt
Know that I was failing you

Metropolitan etc
