Joy Crookes – 19th Floor Lyrics

Joy Crookes 19th Floor Lyrics

Headed back to where I started
Past the fireflies of Rizla burning bright
Lost the tower where my heart is
Cinema skylines that I don’t recognise
Strip the life out of these streets
It’s a daylight robbery
You’ll never take the London out of me, I was

Raised by the river, 19th floor
But we never got this high before
We were lost so long, look how far we’ve come
Down by the river
I remember where I belong

I remember where I belong

Nothing same but nothing different
Hear the people cry concrete lullabies
I never thought I’d say I miss it
See it speaking when I walk
Don’t test the waters, I was

Raised by the river, 19th floor
But we never got this high before
We were lost so long, look how far we’ve come
Down by the river
I remember where I belong

Bopping down Walworth Road, bubblegum blow
Sliders and Sunday clothes
Doing like my Nani, 70s steez
Cardamom stain my teeth
I see the things you’ve seen, but you don’t speak
You’re leaving traces
Like I picked up a parcel handed down through generations

Raised by the river, 19th floor
But we never got this high before
We were lost so long, look how far we’ve come
Down by the river
I remember where I belong

I remember where I belong
I remember where I belong
