The Lost and Found - Oysterband lyrics


This is the hour when the city turns blue
This is the time of the lost and found
They loose the nutters in the underground
Everything is far and nothing is true

When the streets don't feel like a neutral zone
Or the stranger's eye like a neutral glance
The very next step might blow your chance
Of finding your way home alone

CHORUS
It's like an opening door
It's what we came here for
You never know what the wind may blow
You never know what the wind may blow

And your life's like the voice in the room upstairs
Raised to someone you never hear
You can try and try, it'll never come clear
Are you swearing or saying your prayers?
But the eyes are wide that were shut for shame
Dogs in their backyards jump up and bark
Hull and Halifax wake in the dark like someone was calling their name

CHORUS
(Look Sharp!)
It's like an opening door
(Look Sharp!)
It's what we came here for
(Look Sharp!)
You never know what the wind may blow
You never know what the wind may blow

This is the hour when the city turns blue
This is the time of the lost and found
There's no saviours hanging around or keepin' a watch over you

There's words on the wall of a stinking lift
I hold my breath to the 14th floor
Empty-handed I knock at your door
Empty hands are my gift (are my gift)

CHORUS
(Look Sharp!)
It's like an opening door
(Look Sharp!)
It's what we came here for
(Look Sharp!)
You never know what the wind may blow
You never know what the wind may blow
You never know what the wind may blow
You never know what the wind may blow
