    Roost

    Hello,

    Can anybody explain to me in what sense the word roost is used in the lyrics?


    There's another world here
    below shop windows
    upon the pavement
    where you wave good-bye
    Boys and girls
    come to roost
    from Northern parts
    and Scottish towns
    Will we catch your eye?

    Pet Shop Boys
    The Theatre
    (lyrics)

    Thanks a lot
