Lyrics to “Keep Walking” by Emily Maguire

 

She’s down Monday morning
And the sound of London calling
Greets her from the windowpane
She knows how it goes
Yellow red green red and yellow
And she knows how it’s gonna change
Cos she goes walking round
Walk the block and you keep your eyes down
And she tries smiling at the sane
And people passing by
Catch an eye and miss the sky
People turn the other way

 

But she’ll just keep walking

Cos she’s down Monday morning
Waking up to the rain falling
She can’t carry on this way
And she knows how it goes
Yellow red green red and yellow
And she knows something’s got to change

And there’ll be better days and wetter days
Red-letter days, you pray there’s nothing wrong

But she’ll just keep walking
Walking one way

Cos she’s high Sunday night,
Another line will see the light
And she goes dancing in the rain
You know how it goes
Yellow red green red and yellow
You know something’s gotta change

And there’ll be better days and wetter days
Red-letter days, you pray there’s nothing wrong

But she’ll just keep walking
Walking one way
