The Banker (Live) - Lyrics

Now you could say I'm a high powered banker
I'm living in New York and Hong Kong on weekends
And my offices are so high up
You should see it at night
When the lights down below are like fairy dust

And in a few restaurants they know me by name
And I order the usual and they know what I'm saying
I think I could turn this whole city around
I know I was put on this earth
To change pounds into dollars and yen, and back again
I guess that I miss you, but we'll meet again

Sometimes I get homesick when I go to bed
And when I can't sleep
I turn on my screen
And the numbers flicker like fairy dust

One day perhaps we'll get married
You could come and live here, you know I could carry you
You'd just stay home and do your paintings all day
And the sun will turn red in the evening

We'll go home twice a year to visit our mums
And swim at the waterfall up on the hill
We could be so happy, so happy again
But I know I was put on this earth
To change pounds into dollars and yen, and back again
I guess that I miss you, but we'll meet again

Sometimes I get homesick when I go to bed
And when I can't sleep
I turn on my screen
And the numbers flicker like fairy dust

And now you could say I'm a high powered banker
I'm living in New York and Hong Kong on weekends
And my offices are so high up
You should see it at night
When the lights down below are like fairy dust
