Last Night On Northgate Street - The Long Blondes

Five past after he walked away
Things got behind sugar beet grey
Heels aren't (???) grating on the ground
Where are the milkvan on their round?
I wrapped myself up in a rabbit fur coat
I could still hear the screaming from down the road
But he's not even aware if I have gone

Last night on Northgate Street
Watching the smoke from the sugar beet
I thought he'd never leave
Watching the smoke from the sugar beet

Market sets up as it gets light,

Still dressed up from last night
The steps that led to the fight
I only wanted him to walk me home
I hated the thought of walking alone
But he couldn't resist just one more drink

Last night on Northgate Street
Watching the smoke from the sugar beet
I thought he'd never leave
Watching the smoke from the sugar beet
I only wanted him to walk me home
I hated the thought of walking alone
I knew the other girlfriend but I was sure she never saw

I fool myself into thinking we were meant to be
