Stuck here in this shithole

[B]Can't you spare me a room for the night?"

A woman approaches in Barcelona
Walking down the Diagonalia
Spaghetti concrete overpasses
I keep grasping for something familiar
Repeat 2nd part of Chorus again

"Oh No... Don't you know I need a place to stay"
the song finishes on a sustained A
