Badly Drawn Boy – Welcome To The Overground lyrics

Start your fires
This is the overground
It's inside us
Welcome to the overground
You need reminding
Remember this is your destiny

Think of what's in front of you now
Not of what's been left behind
Come on, saviour
Save us now there is no time to rewind

Simple pleasures, to be found
If you reach the overground
Sunshine, rainfall, making love
You see a rainbow
The streets are changing now
Try other avenues
Make a new map of the world
Decide on where to go

Suddenly, we sense a new day
The feeling just comes over you
No false gods left for us to pray to
Darling, it's just me and you

Sunshine, rainfall
Make a rainbow
Please don't follow us
You mean so much to us
Start your fires
This is the overground
Sunshine, rainfall
You see a rainbow
Streets of fire
Try other avenues
It's inside us
Welcome to the overground

If we go our separate ways
The road will lead us back around
Even in a matter of days
We'll see you on the overground
