Em 
I hear the people walk by when it’
D 
 
late
C 
 
Em 
Sirens bleed through my window sill, I
D 
can’t
C 
close my eyes
 
Em 
Don’t control what I’m i
D 
nto
C 
 
Em 
This tower is a
D 
live
C 
 
Em 
The lights that blind keep me a
D 
wake
C 
 
Em 
With my hood up and lace untied
D 
 
slee
C 
p fills my mind
 
Em 
Don’t control what I’m i

C 
 
London calls me a stranger, a traveller
G 
 
This is now my home,
G 
my 
 
home
 
Em 
Oh, 
 
oh
D 
, I’m burning
C 
on the back streets
 
Em 
Oh, oh, s

ere sitting in the back seat,
 
Em 
Oh, oh, and I’m
D 
blazing 
 
o

n the street
 
Em 
The pavement is m
D 
 
frie
C 
nd
 
Em 
It will take me where I need to
D 
go
C 
 
Em 
I find it trips me up
D 
, and  
C 
puts me down
 
Em 
This is not what I’m  
D 
used 
 
t
C 
o
 
Em 
The shop across th
D 
 
road
C 
 
Em 
Fulfills my needs and gives me  
D 
compan
C 
y, when I need it
 
Em 
Voices speak through my walls
D 
, I don’t thin
C 
k I’m gonna make it
 
Em 
Past 
 
tomor

London calls me a stranger, a traveller
G 
 
This is now my home,

Oh, oh, s

C 
ere sitting in the back seat,
 
Em 
Oh, oh, and I’m
D 
blazing 
 
o
C 
n the street
 
With the sound of the city life,
G 
echoed in my head
 
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 
Pollution in the air matche
C 
s that on the street
 
Em 
The black smoke gets you head into a muddle, like
 
D 
Walking into ele
C 
phant syringes in the puddle, like
 
Em 
I was a country boy when I moved out
 
D 
Grew up too fast for m
C 
y family to find out
 
Em 
Now I try to stop my music running into nosedives
 
D 
Can’t resort to arrogance with  
C 
white 
 
lies
 
Em 
This city won’t erase me
 
D 
But I can’t help to see how t
C 
his dark city changed me
 
Em 
It’s all the same scene, music is my life
 
D 
But I try to fight w
C 
hatever I need to hide from
 
Em 
North, South, East, West,
 
D 
London’s my home now,  
C 
knees weak, but we never slow down
 
Em 
Now I start to do my music properly
 
D 
And stay from all the  
C 
negative shit that will follow me
 
London calls me a stranger, a traveller
G 
 
This is now my home,
G 
my 
 
home
 
Em 
Oh, 
 
oh
D 
, I’m burning
C 
on the back streets
 
Em 
Oh, oh, s
D 
tuck 
 
h
C 
ere sitting in the back seat,
 
Em 
Oh, oh, and I’m
D 
blazing 
 
o
C 
n the street
 
Em 
Oh, 
 
oh
D 
, I’m burning
C 
on the back streets
 
Em 
Oh, oh, s
D 
tuck 
 
h
C 
ere sitting in the back seat,
 
Em 
Oh, oh, and I’m
D 
blazing 
 
o
C 
n the street
 
And if the city never sleeps then that  
Em 
makes 
 
two
