I leave a bedroom
still littered by you
I take the train
into this city

A broken heart is easily lost
amongst the crush,
amongst the rush
on the underground

Carried by the moving stairs
There's no need to hurry
when you're going
nowhere.

He gave me the capacity to love
and left as I was filling up
So I turn to you my old friend and say

Take me in your arms.
Wrap your roads around me
Nuzzle me with your crowds
and let the quick warmth of commerce immerse me
Because London, you owe me this much

In the bars and cafes
I waste away the day
The pictures in galleries
give my thoughts a place to nap in

I retire into cinemas
Student passes,
eccentric bastards
escapees from the 9 to 5

Deeper into Hyde Park
I muddle
where the Grannies huddle
Pigeons around my feet

He gave me the capacity to love
and left as I was filling up
So I turn to you my old friend and say

Take me in your arms.
Wrap your roads around me
Nuzzle me with your crowds
and let the warmth of commerce immerse me
Because London, you owe me this much
