"London Bridge" as written by and Stacy/garrett Ferguson....
I went an' burnt my bridges at the weekend,
An' now there's nothing left but another week to end,
An' a sick an' sunken soul in a drunken body like mine,
From London bridge I swim east along the tide.

She says I won't wait I won't wait,
An' now she tells me that she wants me,
She says I won't wait I won't wait,
An' now she tells me that she wants me,
An' won't ya take me home.

When battered heads dissemble and descend into a mess upon the city,
When bleeding hearts awake from single beds and paint themselves so very pretty,
Oh from London Bridge you know its not such a bad sight oh no no.

Shuddered hard at those memories of those filthy nights we spent,
I never wanted to be the one who just came and went,
Oh lover you know I can't afford your game,
Oh lover no I can't afford your game

She said,

When battered heads dissemble and descend into a mess upon the city,
When bleeding hearts awake from single beds and paint themselves so very pretty,

When you're just eighteen, you never win an' no it's not right,
Well from London Bridge you know its not such a bad sight.

Woahh, I won't wait I won't wait,
An' now she tells me that she wants me,
She says I won't wait, I won't wait,
An' now she tells me that she wants me,
And that she loves me, oh take me home,
Take me home, woah won't you take me home, come on take me home

    General CommentThis band is amazing the album is one of my favouraites they deserve to be rich and famous and playing at venues like the civic hall sadly they have not took off yet despite they fact they are signed with a album!

    It appears to me the song is about his life covering a number of different things work relationships and his urban life style just by guess deep song amazing band cheers for the lyrics snitchdaboy

    General CommentI'm with you, underrated band with a damn good idea for a hook and a lick.

    This one's great, I think it's a sort of dystopian waterloo sunset. Sort of The Kinks meet the Clash.
