THESE STREETS (THROUGH THE WINDSHIELDS)
where'd the days go? When all we did was play
And the stress that we were under wasn't stress at all
just a run and a jump into a harmless fall from
walking by a high-rise to a landmark square
you see millions of people with millions of cares
And I struggle to the train to make my way home
I look at the people as they sit there alone.'
Paolo Nutini- These Streets
On the grotty side of town, you see garbage and graffiti and grey council blocks as people walk by with their black or green bags of their purchases from the corner shop, the charity shop or the pound shop. On the grotty side of town, there is always a corner shop, a charity shop and a pound shop. They trod past you with heavy steps and firmness of face, looking aloof, alert and aware of the grim landscape of grey.
The side of town you don't see, the side of town London hides from the cameras.
The side of town where the streets are never clean, the cars are always old bangers, and people seem to drag their feet out of a peat of colourless shadows.
The side of town where living is tough. The part of town everyone dreams of getting out of. The part of town where even the walls are eager to give you a fond farewell on your way out.
