lyrics

Down the river went an old email
Now the things in it are not unknown
We lost a generation on the phone
I like the look of your letterhead
How you made it in 1905
And how the summer was so long and dry

It feels like we got a long time
It feels like we got a long time
It feels like we got a long time to learn

Cos if I walk just for one more mile
I can change how things are turning out
It doesn't matter how far you have gone
And if I stop at the corner store
I can stop economy's collapse
And when you return you'll still have a home

Still it feels like we got a long time
It feels like we got a long time
It feels like we got a long time to learn how we turn

I'd like to know
Well this letter how does it find you?
It finds you
You say there's a great big system
Of post codes around you, behind you

I walked through town in my dressing gown
Cats and dogs are falling from the sky
I've got the morning's rosary in my soul
I'm in the pages of a book
I got an early night
And when I walk I have no regrets at all

It feels like we've got a long time
It feels like we've got a long time
It feels like we've got a long time to learn how to turn

I'd like to know
Well this letter how does it find you?
It finds you
You say there's a great big system
Of post codes around you and behind you

about

Metropolitan Walks Sydney, Australia

Metropolitan Walks had a bunch of unadorned pop doodles recorded that he was planning on maybe doing proper later on but one day realised they were already finished and so dropped his debut album.
