Lovetown

Peter Gabriel

© 1994 (Philadelphia Soundtrack)
People go naked
And pick up these trails
Someone before me
Lay down these rails
And it's loaded up too heavy
This engine fails
In Lovetown
I can't settle down
And do those teeth still match the wounds
Take a good look around
In Lovetown

Lookin' in Lovetown
This is Lovetown

Sometimes you're stone and water
On which I pour my oil
In each other's shadow
The roots reach into the soil
Pull these knots so tightly tied
We could not uncoil
In Lovetown
No place to settle down
And do those teeth still match the wounds
Take a good look around
Lovetown

This is Lovetown
Looking in Lovetown

Who's lonely lips
Will find these hidden scars
Who's seen the kisses
Left in dim lit bars
Who's out on the streets
looking for love like ours
Who's looking in lovetown tonight

Have you got what you want
Say, and have you got what you need
With what you did
And what you saw
Did you find you needed more
Have you got what you came for
Are you really so sure
Are you really so sure

Lookin' in Lovetown
Lovetown
Livin' in Lovetown
