Garvey, Rea - Hometown Lyrics




Falling down the streets of Marigold
Follow my feet where they go
Thinkin' 'bout a home I used to know
It's like a door's been slammed closed

I'll never fix my life till now
Colors sensing your movement now
Money might get you a seat in the front row
But it won't buy you what I know

Oh...
I hear the music coming through the floorboards
Oh...
You said music don't live here anymore

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Part of growing up was falling down
We used to dance until the morning light
We used to live, we used to love life

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Got knocked out but we ain't coming around
We used to burn until the morning light
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie

Oh...
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie
Oh...
But it's not right

Crawling up your life in a sleeping bag
Setting up your tent on the main drag
There was a day I though I understood
Now I see my own face underneath the same hood

Did we loose what we were coming from?
We used to sing till our voices were gone
Drinking our fill from a half-filled cup
Turning it up 'cause it's not enough

Oh...
I hear the music coming through the floorboards
Oh...
You said music don't live here anymore

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Part of growing up was falling down
We used to dance until the morning light
We used to live, we used to love life

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Got knocked out but we ain't coming around
We used to burn until the morning light
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie

Oh...
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie
Oh...
But it's not right

Whatever happened to my hometown?
Got knocked out but we ain't coming around
We used to burn until the morning light
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie

Oh...
Now we're just working for the shirt and tie
Oh...
But it's not right

    Hallöchen Rea, ich möchte mich herzlich bei deiner Musik bedanken die du produzierst. Ich hab dich zum ersten mal im Radio gehört als dein Hit "Is it love?" durchs Radio rannte und seit dem höre ich kaum jemanden anderen. Du halfst mir durch schwierige Zeiten und unterstütztest meine positive zeit. Deine Musik motiviert mich jeden morgen aus dem Bett zu kommen...Sport zu treiben und an meine ziele fest zu halten. Daher Danke

    Falling on the streets of Marigold

    Follow my feet where they go

    Thinking bout‘ a home I used to know

    It’s like the doors been slammed close

    fixed my life till now

    Colour ? your moving out

    Money might get a seat in the front row

    But I won’t buy you what I know

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    I hear the music coming through the floorboards

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    They say music don’t ? you anymore

    Whatever happened to my hometown

    Party growing up is falling down

    We used to the dance into the morning light

    We used to live we used to love life

    Whatever happened to my hometown
    Got no doubt but we ain’t coming around

    We used to burn into the morning light

    Now we’re just working for the shirt and tie

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    Now we’re just working for the shirt and tie

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    But it’s not alright

    Crawling up your life in a sleeping bag

    Setting up your tent on the main drag

    There was a day I thought I understood

    Now I see my own face underneath the same hood

    Did we lose where we were coming from

    We used to sing until our voices where gone

    Drinking a filth from a half full cup

    Turning it up cause it’s not enough

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    They say music don’t ? you anymore

    Whatever happened to my hometown

    Party growing up is falling down

    We used to the dance into the morning light

    We used to live we used to love life

    Whatever happened to my hometown

    Got no doubt but we ain’t coming around

    We used to burn into the morning light

    Now we’re just working for the shirt and tie

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    Now we’re just working for the shirt and tie

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    But it’s not alright

    Whatever happened to my hometown

    Got no doubt but we ain’t coming around

    We used to burn until the morning light

    Now we’re just working for the shirt and tie

    Oh oh oh oh oh

    Now we’re just working for the shirt and tie

    Oh oh oh oh oh
