Intro: Em D C

Em             D     C
 This city never sleeps

Em                                  D     C
 I hear the people walk by when it´s late

Em                                     D     C
Sirens bleed through my window sill, I can´t close my eyes

Em                       D     C
Don´t control what I´m into

Em              D     C
This tower is alive

Em                              D     C
The lights that blind keep me awake

Em                              D     C
With my hood up and lace untied, sleep fills my mind

Em                       D     C
Don´t control what I´m into

C         D11                 Em          G
   London calls me a stranger, a traveller

C         D11          G
   This is now my home, my home

Em     D            C
Oh, oh, I´m burning on the back streets

Em        D     C
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat,

Em              D         C
Oh, oh, and I´m blazing on the street

    C 
And what I do isn´t up to you, 

          D11
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two

Em                D     C
The pavement is my friend

Em                                D     C
  It will take me where I need to go

Em                    D     C
I find it trips me up, and puts me down

Em                    D     C
This is not what I’m used to

Em                   D     C
  The shop across the road

Em                                 D     C
   Fulfills my needs and gives me company, when I need it

Em                            D             C
Voices speak through my walls, I don’t think I’m gonna make it

Em         D     C
Past tomorrow

C         D11                 Em          G
   London calls me a stranger, a traveller

C         D11          G
   This is now my home, my home

Em     D            C
Oh, oh, I´m burning on the back streets

Em        D     C
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat,

Em              D         C
Oh, oh, and I´m blazing on the street

    C 
And what I do isn´t up to you, 

          D11
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two

C                  D11                 
   And my lungs hurt, And my ears bled,

Em*                               G
  With the sound of the city life, echoed in my head

C               D11          
  Do I need this, to keep me alive

G
The traffic stops and starts but I need to move along

Em
I’m from a city where the rain won’t cease

  D                          C
Pollution in the air matches that on the street

     Em
The black smoke gets you head into a muddle, like

D               C
Walking into elephant syringes in the puddle, like

Em
  I was a country boy when I moved out

D                     C
Grew up too fast for my family to find out

Em
Now I try to stop my music running into nosedives

D                              C
Can’t resort to arrogance with white lies

Em
  This city won’t erase me

    D                            C
But I can’t help to see how this dark city changed me

Em
It’s all the same scene, music is my life

   D                   C
But I try to fight whatever I need to hide from

Em
  North, South, East, West, 

            D                     C
London’s my home now, knees weak, but we never slow down

Em
Now I start to do my music properly

    D                     C
And stay from all the negative shit that will follow me

C         D11                 Em          G
   London calls me a stranger, a traveller

C         D11          G
   This is now my home, my home

Em     D            C
Oh, oh, I´m burning on the back streets

Em        D     C
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat,

Em              D         C
Oh, oh, and I´m blazing on the street

    C 
And what I do isn´t up to you, 

          D11
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two

Em     D            C
Oh, oh, I´m burning on the back streets

Em        D     C
Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat,

Em              D         C
Oh, oh, and I´m blazing on the street

    C 
And what I do isn´t up to you, 

          D11                                     Em
And if the city never sleeps then that makes two
