This track was written around October 2013 and was mostly inspired by the first 4 lines which I came up on the fly walking from work to the Oxford Circus underground station. The kaleidoscope line I wrote in 2011, but finally made use of it here. This is a song that has so many lines that I'm not explicit in meaning, but I know what they mean, and that's what makes it special to me. I had the song professionally recorded and produced, but my laptop was just stolen and with it all of my song files, so here's the acoustic version. Thanks for listening.


Rollin' up to Oxford Circus
And I'm really wishin' I was worth this
But money's tight and it's getting tighter
And if I go down I'll die a fighter

And yeah my visa's tight
Having nightmares every night
Yet I'm stuck here on the phone
Trying so hard to call home

'Cause streetlights turn teardrops into kaleidoscopes
Will I sit here with my pedal on the gas well I don't know

(I don't know) x6

One day this week I woke up and realised
It's not 2008, and I cried and I cried
And I cried 'cause nothin's stopping time
Yet the year that seemed so far away is now on the other side

And yeah I'm growing older, growing tired, growing bolder
Matt was right; it gets much colder when I cry on my own shoulder
But at 23 I still don't even know who I am
Am I a boy or am I a man well I don't know

(I don't know) x6

So in the moment I'll stay
While the crane man picks his beams of sunlight up and
Maybe this is one of those days
Yet maybe this'll be the rest of my life, so

(I don't know) x12
