Christmas In The City (Orla’s Song) LYRICS

The wet streets thick with heels,

Petrol, perfume, tangerines

And arrogant against the rain winked

Fairy lights of red and green

Past office parties I fought to

Catch you before you caught your train

Back to your country home; I knew

If you left town now

We’d not touch again

Orla – let’s not go there

Orla – let’s stay here

Spend Christmas in the city

Let’s just give it one more year

I know we swore by now

We’d have our own tree

And someone to play Santa for

And I know the fault lies with me

Orla – let’s not go there

Orla – let’s stay here

Spend Christmas in the city

Let’s just disappear together

These streets are blind

And these streets are kind

And these streets don’t mind

what’s behind us

These streets won’t blame us

These streets will claim us

They’ll hide us where

No-one can find us

No snow ever lay so

Bright and crisp and even

As how you looked at me to say

Love, but not in love, so leaving

Orla – let’s not go there

Orla – let’s stay here

Spend Christmas in our city

Let’s just disappear
