new shoes lyrics – paolo nutini

woke up cold one tuesday,
i’m looking tired and feeling quite sick,
i felt like there was something missing in my day to day life,
so i quickly opened the wardrobe,
pulled out some jeans and a t-shirt that seemed clean,
topped it off with a pair of old shoes,
that were ripped around the seams,
and i thought these shoes just don’t suit me.

[chorus:]
hey, i put some new shoes on,
and suddenly everything is right,
i said, hey, i put some new shoes on and everybody’s smiling,
it’s so inviting,
oh, short on money,
but long on time,
slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
and i’m running late,
and i don’t need an excuse,
’cause i’m wearing my brand new shoes.

woke up late one thursday,
and i’m seeing stars as i’m rubbing my eyes,
and i felt like there were two days missing,
as i focused on the time,
and i made my way to the kitchen,
but i had to stop from the shock of what i found,
a room full of all off my friends dancing round and round,
and i thought h*llo new shoes,
bye bye them blues.

[chorus]

take me wandering through these streets,
where bright lights and angels meet,
stone to stone they take me on,
i’m walking to the break of dawn. [x2]

[chorus (x2)]

take me wandering through these streets
