Hometown Glory

I really love the lyrics of Hometown Glory by Adele. Whilst travelling home on the train from class, I’m currently listening to the High Contrast Remix as played by London Elektricity on his Radio1 Essential Mix in November 2008; lyrics slightly edited from the track:

Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh the people I’ve met
Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh the people I’ve met

I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque
I love to see everybody in short skirts, shorts and shades
I like it in the city when two worlds collide
You get the people and the government
Everybody taking different sides

Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh the people I’ve met
Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Ooh the people I’ve met
