lyrics

I was following my breath back towards Bethnal Green
At four in the morning of January three and
On the corner where a girl stabbed a boy last week
There’s a man heading to the car park where he sleeps

He tells me that he’s from Liverpool
He moved down three decades ago
Sometimes he sleeps on the sofa of a friend
But tonight he’ll be in a parking space again

Four days later I can’t but stop and stare
The front page of the West End Final bears the story of a billionaire
Who paid forty six million pounds for a flat in
Belgravia

The only question is how does he sleep at night
The only thing we know for sure is there’s not a single car in sight
