Mark Knopfler - Metroland


(Mark Knopfler)

Yearning, we were yearning

Green like blinding on the rail

Burning, we were burning

And a line unwinding to the Holy Grail

To the future gleaming on the blue horizon

And a golden girl on golden sand

Dreaming, fantasizing

In another world for Metroland

I've danced in rain

And I've been Django

And I've got laid

I've been a rolling stone

I've been Verlaine

And I've been Rimbaud

Not afraid to walk alone

And now I take, my midnight ramble

Do I fold or play

What's in my hand

What's at stake, what's the gamble

Do I stay in Metroland

Dreams, yesterday's laughter

Ghosts and lovers come back to play

But dreams have a morning after

And run for cover

In the light of day

I got something real, worth holding onto

I can belong to, and understand

I've made my deal

I will go onto

Make my peace with Metroland, with Metroland

Metroland, Metroland, Metroland
