Roderick Cronin & Rob Wickenden – North Side Of The City lyrics

i see the setting sun on the homes
in a far off distant place away from here
i see the tall new buildings
against the skyline when the day is clear
i once had a job out there
and a certain girl i met
but that was many years ago
her face i can’t forget.

i see the setting sun on the homes
in a far off distant place
a distant place away from here

bridge
the north side of the city
is where i want to be
the north side of the city
there is someone there for me.
i have no one to take me there
‘been out of work too long
i know it’s the place where i belong
on a cold and dark winters night
the roof leaking on my head
i should have stuck around to see
with someone to share my bed

i see the setting sun on the homes
in a far off distant place away from here
i see the tall new buildings
against the skyline when the day is clear
things were good way back then
and time was passing fast
the things we did i can’t forget
but i knew it couldn’t last

i see the setting sun on the homes
in a far off distant place
a distant place away from here

on a cold and dark winters night
the roof leaking on my head
i should have stuck around to see
with someone to share my bed

i see the setting sun on the homes
in a far off distant place
a distant place away from here (repeat)
