Paolo Nutini
New shoes

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
Top ped it off with a pair of old shoes
That were ripped around the seams
And I thought these shoes just don't suit me

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 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 all 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 my friends dancing round and round
And I thought hello new shoes
Byebye them blues

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 so inviting
Oh, short on money
But long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I'm running late
And I dont need an excuse
'Cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes

Take me wondering through these streets
Where bright lights and angels meet
Stone to stone they take me on
I'm walking to the break of dawn

Take me wondering through these streets
Where bright lights and angels meet
Stone to stone they take me on
I'm walking to the break of dawn

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 so inviting
Oh, short on money
But long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I'm running late
And I dont need an excuse
'Cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes

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 so inviting
Oh, short on money
But long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I'm running late
And I dont need an excuse
'Cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes
