  • People go naked and pick up these trails
    Someone before me laid down these rails
    When it's loaded up too heavy,
    this engine fails
    In lovetown
    I can't settle down
    And do those teeth still match the wound
    Take a good look around
    In lovetown

    Aaahha, aaahha
    Looking in lovetown
    Aaahha, aaahha
    This is lovetown

    Sometimes you're stormy water
    on which I pour my oil
    In each other's shadow
    The roots reach into the soil
    All these knots so tightly tied
    We could not uncoil
    In lovetown
    No place to settle down
    And do those teeth still match the wound
    Take a good look around
    In lovetown

    Aaahha, aaahha
    This is lovetown
    Aaahha, aaahha
    Looking in lovetown

    Who's lonely lips will find these hidden scars?
    Who's seen the kisses left in dim lit bars?
    Who's out in the streets, looking for love like ours?
    Who's looking in lovetown tonight?

    Have you got what you want
    Said have you got what you need
    With what you did and what you saw
    Did you find you needed more
    Have you got what you came for
    Are you really so sure
    Are you really so sure

    Looking in lovetown
    In lovetown
    Living in lovetown
    Hey yeah yeah. Writer/s: PETER GABRIEL
