Last night I was walking home from work across the bridge,
when something huge exploded underneath.
I was blinded, deafened, several seconds,
The concrete fell away beneath my feet,
I'm on my hands and knees.

A fireball rose around
A double decker bus fell off the side.
I made it to the bank, crawled past bodies on the tarmac
And then I waited like a coward for the sirens to arrive.

This kid came out of nowhere, in a wooden dinghy.
She can't have been much older than 13 - but she was strong:
She climbed up on the sinking wreckage, started pulling people free,
One by one she dragged and carried them to safety...
Then she was gone.

When I got home the news was on, they didn't mention her.
In the chaos maybe no-one even knows.
London Bridge has fallen down, world still turns around:
Down here there's nothing and the river flows.

(oil on the river where the bridge fell down)
(oil on the river where the bridge fell down)
[repeats]
