Pleasant Street - Live in London

You don't remember what to say
You don't remember what to do
You don't remember where to go
You don't remember who to choose
You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down
Down, down, down

All the stony people
Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes
I can't hesitate
And I can't wait
For Pleasant Street

The sunshine reminds you of concreted skies
You thought you were flying but you happened to open up your eyes
And you found yourself falling back to yesterday's lies
Hello, Pleasant Street, I’m back again
I wheel, I steal, I kneel, I feel down
Down, down, down

All of those stony people
Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes
I can't hesitate
And I can't wait
For Pleasant Street

At twilight your lover comes to your room
He's gonna spin you, he's gonna weave you all around his emerald loom
But softly you'll whisper “I’m all around your ear
Sweet lover, I love Pleasant Street”
You wheel, you steal, you kneel you feel your way down to kneel down
Down, down, down

Segue to “You keep me hangin’ on”

All the stony people
Walking 'round in Christian licorice clothes
I can't hesitate
And I can't wait
For Pleasant Street

You don't remember what to say
You don't remember what to do
You don't remember which way to go
You don't remember who to choose
You wheel, you steal, you feel, you kneel down
