Benjamin Clementine – Edmonton Lyrics

Oh, how swallow is to hunger
As a pigeon to my Trafalgar
In them young boys eyes she’d seen
The kind of men they could have been.

Home is far from here
You see they’re from the other side
of the horizon.
Where a lad stands a slim chance
Even if they knew
They’ve made all the right choices.
And so could you imagine it
How it feels to be a mother in this
Part of borough
Of a never ending field.

Edmonton, Edmonton,
Will we change?
Edmonton, Edmonton,
Will we change?

From time to time I ponder
But this so called reason for pondering
Ponders no end.
And how Boris promised a sweet plan
So we gave him a second chance.
He said “Stand and be headstrong,
Black gigantic living stones!”.

Oh, how whispering is to falling short
As anger to the shutting of a door.
John 11:35 – Jesus wept and wept and wept
Cause ain’t nobody getting up from their sleep
Saying how about we start a new thread.
I ain’t talkin about revolution
Just a simple “Hello, friend!” will do
Ain’t much of a duty in this part of borough
Of a never ending field.

Edmonton, Edmonton,
Will we change?
Edmonton, Edmonton,
Will we change?

Said I ain’t talking about a revolution
Just a simple “Hello, friend!”, will do
Ain’t much of a duty in these parts of borough
Of never ending field.

Edmonton, Edmonton,
Will we change?
Edmonton, Edmonton,
Will we change?

Will we change?
