Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
Meet me at the Bureau de change
I'm not ready to die
At least not in a country this ugly
Men like us need a grand finale
I saw a picture online of a beautiful market square...

Born In The EU

Spector


[Verse 1]
Meet me at the Bureau de change
I'm not ready to die
At least not in a country this ugly
Men like us need a grand finale
I saw a picture online of a beautiful market square
It reminds me of a lyric I didn't write
You were always the ideas man

[Chorus]
I wish I'd done everything on earth with you
There's a city in Europe where no one will remember our names
Where all the motorways cascade
Pavements flow like waves
There's a city in Europe in which nobody comes home
Tonight we're driving on the right into the great unknown

[Verse 2]
As we sit and discuss
The lack of romance in the smoke and mirrors of an electronic cigarette
I realise our dreams are almost as old as us

[Chorus]
I wish I'd done everything on earth with, everything on earth with you, with you too
There's a city in Europe where no one will remember our names
Where all the motorways cascade
Pavements flow like waves
There's a city in Europe in which nobody comes home
Tonight we're driving on the right into the great unknown

[Bridge]
Marseille, Dresden, Vienna, Birmingham, Sofia, Monaco, Amsterdam, Oslo, Athens, Barcelona, Glasgow, Verona, Budapest, Gothenburg, Sheffield, Hamburg

[Verse 3]
We don't need context to set the scene
We were born here, we will die here
Let's try living in between

[Chorus x2]
There's a city in Europe where no one will remember our names
Where all the motorways cascade
Pavements flow like waves
There's a city in Europe in which nobody comes home
Tonight we're driving on the right into the great unknown

"Born In The EU" Track Info



MacPherson and Burman wrote this song as a love letter for each other but also for Europe.

MacPherson had this to say about it: “I wrote ‘Born In The EU' with our old guitarist Chris Burman in 2013, a few months before he left Spector. We'd known each other since we were 11 and the song was kind of a love letter to each other, and the story of that love on an adventure round the continent we'd spent so much of the previous years touring.We'd often discussed feeling European as opposed to British – an affectation maybe, but one that allowed us to take pride in being part of something larger, more cultural, unknown and adventurous. I remember being a child and not really having a notion of what ‘Englishness' was until the first times I went to France, Spain, Germany, Italy etc. Countries not defined by their differences and their flags, but by their unity, shared history and constantly migrating/mixing populations.We never ‘finished' this song and weren't sure we were ever going to release it, but then it dawned on me that by the end of this week we might no longer even be a part of Europe, and for one of the first times in my life, I felt the clock tick. ”
