Hometown

Grass is gone
There’s only concrete to walk upon
The motorway has been through and gone
There’s nothing here left to see here

Corner shop
All that’s left is an empty plot
Making room for an office block
It’s just a sign of the change of times

Hometown, everything Has Been changed around
Buildings so high, can not even spy
The sun going down

It looks cold
I see no sight of a barber’s pole
Even that one has been sold
To the city men with their “Vacant” signs

How strange
People thinking that I have changed
But as it happens, I’m just the same
It’s just the cut of the clothes I wear

Hometown, everything Has Been changed around
Buildings so high, can’t even spy
The sun going down
