Sam Fender - Leave Fast Lyrics

Dark grey vistas of this weathered place
The blue star on the Nautilus
The old boys like chimneys
Mass of filth and rubbish outside the houses
And broken fridges and torn up sofas

The boy races, tearin' down the Beehive Road
Leadin' out to coastlines
Where kids freeze their lungs and
Run amongst the rolling dunes away from everyone

Oh, leave fast or stay forever
An old man told me to leave fast or stay forever
Leave fast or stay forever

Boarded up windows on the promenade
The shells of old nightclubs
And halfway houses
Intoxicated people battlin' on the regular
In a lazy lowlights bar

Poor souls sleepin' on shop front doors
Being turfed off by the council
Forgotten by our government
And selfish little baby with no responsibility
Watching people die in the cold

Oh, leave fast or stay forever
An old man told me to leave fast or stay forever
An old man told me to leave fast or stay forever

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

  33. Nigel Hancock

    "Poor souls sleeping on shop front doors
    Being turfed off by the council
    Forgotten by our government
    A selfish little baby
    With no responsibility

    Watching people die in the cold"
    Such heartfelt words, from someone so young. Good on you


    Absolutely fabulous, It reminds me of Teesside, until I escaped, You have one hell of a gift in your writing, put together with a fabulous voice and we have a winner, Hometown glory by Adele gave me that feeling, Just like her you will be global by 2020, Enjoy your success. Thank god for musicians like you, so sick of bubblegum pop.

  35. James Barker

    Unreal music and video, reminds me of a shane meadows piece.. Beautifully depressing

  44. S t r e s s e d O u t J e m

    His voice is just... Wow

  45. Callum Lewis

    I still can’t believe that most of this video was actually filmed on my doorstep , Blyth power station and Cambois and Newcastle. Sam will always be a Home town boy. But I don’t think I’ve ever had a tune, that makes me feel this proud of where i come from.

    Stunning song. The guitar work reminds me of mid 90's Thom Yorke. The strong vocals are reminiscent of Jeff Buckley. Both artists I absolutely adore. Sam Fender really is something very special.
