There is something I wanted to tell you
It's so funny you'll kill yourself laughing
But then I, I look around
And I remember that I am alone
For evermore

The tile yard all along the railings
Up a discolored dark brown staircase
Here you'll find, despair and I
Calling to you with what's left of my heart
My heart
For evermore

Drinking tea with the taste of the Thames
Sullenly on a chair on the pavement
Here you'll find, my thoughts and I
And here is the very last plea from my heart
My heart
For evermore

Where taxi drivers never stop talking
Under slate grey Victorian sky,
Here you will find, despair and I
And here I am every last inch of me is yours,
For evermore

Your leg came to rest against mine
Then you lounged with knees up and apart
And me and my heart, we knew
We just knew
For evermore

Where taxi drivers never stop talking
Under slate grey Victorian sky
Here you'll find, my heart and I
And still we say come back
Come back to Camden
And I'll be good, I'll be good, I'll be good, I'll be good

    General CommentMoz has clearly spent too long in the USA if he's musing over our grey skies!

    General CommentWhat makes people think that the song is about a man? It could just as easily be about a woman.

    General CommentWho cares if it's about a man or a woman.
    It's about heartbreak.
    And coming to terms with accepting it.

    General CommentWonderful song..

    Your leg came to rest against mine, Then you lounged with knees up and apart
    And me and my heart, we knew, We just knew, For evermore

    General CommentHi, I listened to this song once when I was in London and everytime I hear it now, I get some kind of pavlov's reaction which makes me want to go to London so badly.... Is that strange? ;)

    General CommentAmerica does that to you. I spent two weeks there... And I was already missing our weather.

    Still, this has a very vendy, romantic feel to it. I just love the way this song unfolds, it's so tragic.

    General CommentDo I detect a hint of suicide or one's mortality there at the end? Not unlike 'Sing me to sleep'
