"London, Can You Wait?" as written by and Martin Rossiter Kevin Miles....
My kith and kin
I have sinned
I didn't hear the siren, or see him giving in
My kith and kin
I have sinned, again
He said
"London, can you wait
For all the things I have to say
London, can you wait?"

My kith and kin
I have sinned
The alarm rang loud, the lights were on
And I didn't see a thing
My kith and kin
Death just walked in, again
He said
"London, can you wait
For all the things I have to say
How long can you wait?"

I was having the time of my life
So why did you have to die?
I'm lost
Again

    General Comment" a bank robbery"??

    This song is about the death of a friend and in particular about feeling guilt about not seeing the warning signs that this friend was ill ("the alarm rang loud, the lights were on", "I didnt hear the siren"). And then the feeling of being lost again when this friend passes away.
