Slowly Slowly – Melbourne Lyrics

I’m going back to future
Each night when I dream
I’m standing on steeples
I’m on Flinders St
Yeah, I hear The Forum
The heat in the air
You could cut it like cake
From Brunettis I swear
Yeah, I wanna be here
When they end the fight
And the lights of my neighbours
Go out for the night
Their houses all empty
The sound of the streets
My new favourite song
I haven’t heard it in weeks
Take me down to Fitzroy, yeah
And teach me how to dance
And when we move on to Rev’s
Make sure that I’m sorry in advance
What I’d give
To take you out to dinner
It’s been a long year, but I’m sure
Melbourne’s gonna answer when I call
What I’d give to take you on a bender
Let the kinks all flatten out
Melbourne’s my town & I miss her
And I miss her, and I miss her
I’d love nothing more
Than to be standing behind
The pole at the corner
To be wrapped round a pint
For my shout at the bar
For my phone to just die
For Monday regret
An overpriced cab ride
To miss my tram
Pay five bucks for a coffee
Uncomfortable small talk
And wait like a zombie
In queues and in lines
Yeah, I’m in lockdown I’m longing
Melbourne, I’m sorry
Take me on a joyride yeah
Windows down to smell the flowers
I wanna see the ‘G light up this year
And sit on Punt Road for an hour
What I’d give
To take you out to dinner
It’s been a long year, but I’m sure
Melbourne’s gonna answer when I call
What I’d give to take you on a bender
Let the kinks all flatten out
Melbourne’s my town & I miss her
And I know where I want go on the way home
I wanna stand at Danny's burgers, in the cold
Just when you thought we were done
Melbourne’s made a comeback
What I’d give
To take you out to dinner
It’s been a long year, but I’m sure
Melbourne’s gonna answer when we call
What I’d give
To take you on a bender
Let the kinks all flatten out
Cause Melbourne’s my town & I miss her
