lyrics

With a crazy boss and a broken heart
I took a one way ticket alone
With a bruised determination
I fled the castle I still call home

Turning left from Partick Station
With my whole life on my back
Exhilarated by the freedom
But daunted by the friends I lack

I made my way to 913 Dumbarton Road
Past the Velvet Elvis to my unfixed abode

So take a straw
And stand in line
'Cause someone in this city
Will be a friend of mine

Everytime the bus went under the Clyde
I could feel the whole building shake
But I tell myself don't worry
It's not a bomb or an earthquake

I feel safe here in 913 Dumbarton Road
Above the lawyers and Michaelangelo

So take a straw
And stand in line
'Cause someone in this city
Will be a friend of mine
To make a home
It just takes time
Enjoy the calm before the storm
It'll be just fine

So make your way to 913 Dumbarton Road

And take a hand
We'll dance in line
'Cause everybody in this city
Is a friend of mine
We'll make a home
It just takes time
Enjoy the calm before the storm
It'll be just fine

So take a straw
And stand in line
'Cause someone in this city
Will be a friend of mine
To make a home
It just takes time
Enjoy the calm before the storm
It'll be just fine
It'll be just fine
