People go naked and pick up these trails
Someone before me laid down these rails
When it's loaded up too heavy,
This engine fails
In lovetown
I can't settle down
And do those teeth still match the wound
Take a good look around
In lovetown

Aaahha, aaahha
Looking in lovetown
Aaahha, aaahha
This is lovetown

Sometimes you抮e stormy water
On which I pour my oil
In each other抯 shadow
The roots reach into the soil
All these knots so tightly tied
We could not uncoil
In lovetown
No place to settle down
And do those teeth still match the wound
Take a good look around
In lovetown

Aaahha, aaahha
This is lovetown
Aaahha, aaahha
Looking in lovetown

Who抯 lonely lips will find these hidden scars?
Who抯 seen the kisses left in dimlit bars?
Who抯 out in the streets, looking for love like ours?
Who抯 looking in lovetown tonight?

Have you got what you want
Said have you got what you need
With what you did and what you saw
Did you find you needed more
Have you got what you came for
Are you really so sure
Are you really so sure

Looking in lovetown
In lovetown
Living in lovetown
Hey yeah yeah.
