    Intro:
    EmDC
     
    EmDC
    This city never sleeps 
    EmDC
    I hear the people walk by when it's late 
    EmDC
    Sirens bleed through my window sill, I can't close my eyes 
    EmDC
    Don't control what I'm into 
    EmDC
    This tower is alive 
    EmDC
    The lights that blind keep me awake 
    EmDC
    With my hood up and lace untied, sleep fills my mind 
    EmDC
    Don't control what I'm into 
    CDEmG
    London calls me a stranger, a traveller 
    CDGG
    This is now my home, my home 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, I'm burning on the back streets 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat, 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, and I'm blazing on the street 
    C
    And what I do isn't up to you, 
    D
    And if the city never sleeps then that makes two 
    EmDC
    The pavement is my friend 
    EmDC
    It will take me where I need to go 
    EmDC
    I find it trips me up, and puts me down 
    EmDC
    This is not what I'm used to 
    EmDC
    The shop across the road 
    EmDC
    Fulfills my needs and gives me company, when I need it 
    EmDC
    Voices speak through my walls, I don't think I'm gonna make it 
    EmDC
    Past tomorrow 
    CDEmG
    London calls me a stranger, a traveller 
    CDGG
    This is now my home, my home 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, I'm burning on the back streets 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat, 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, and I'm blazing on the street 
    C
    And what I do isn't up to you, 
    D
    And if the city never sleeps then that makes two 
    CD
    And my lungs hurt, And my ears bled, 
    EmG
    With the sound of the city life, echoed in my head 
    CD
    Do I need this, to keep me alive 
    G
    The traffic stops and starts but I need to move along 
    Em
    I'm from a city where the rain won't cease 
    DC
    Pollution in the air matches that on the street 
    Em
    The black smoke gets you head into a muddle, like 
    DC
    Walking into elephant syringes in the puddle, like 
    Em
    I was a country boy when I moved out 
    DC
    Grew up too fast for my family to find out 
    Em
    Now I try to stop my music running into nosedives 
    DC
    Can't resort to arrogance with white lies 
    Em
    This city won't erase me 
    DC
    But I can't help to see how this dark city changed me 
    Em
    It's all the same scene, music is my life 
    DC
    But I try to fight whatever I need to hide from 
    Em
    North, South, East, West, 
    DC
    London's my home now, knees weak, but we never slow down 
    Em
    Now I start to do my music properly 
    DC
    And stay from all the negative shit that will follow me 
    CDEmG
    London calls me a stranger, a traveller 
    CDGG
    This is now my home, my home 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, I'm burning on the back streets 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat, 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, and I'm blazing on the street 
    C
    And what I do isn't up to you, 
    D
    And if the city never sleeps then that makes two 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, I'm burning on the back streets 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, stuck here sitting in the back seat, 
    EmDC
    Oh, oh, and I'm blazing on the street 
    C
    And what I do isn't up to you, 
    DEm
    And if the city never sleeps then that makes two
