about

A lament for past lovers - and a homage to London Town and its music scene.

lyrics

Won’t you come up and see me, my sweet darlin’ Billy/
Kick the mud off your shoes and come into the city/
I'm playin’ my songs in a barroom in Soho/
One's that I wrote you a long time ago/

I'm livin’ up east now, just by Stamford Hill/
Where the houses are cheap and the people are real/
And that day that we parted is haunting me still/
Oh I wanna get me some peace but I don't think I will

Remember that night in Dalston Superstore?/
You told me I kissed/ like a teenage boy/
And that painting I wanted still hangs on my wall/
As soon as I make some real money I'll pay you for sure?
Oh for sure/

Well I heard from your friends that you headed out west/
For the light and the landscape suited you best?/
Well I hope that you’re working/ I hope that you you’re strong?/
And I hope there's a girl there keepin you warm/

Now I know I'm no longer a part of your life/
Not much good as a girlfriend/ lover or wife/
But I sing for you often/ these London Love Songs/
And I think of you fondly as I go along/
Yeah, I think of you fondly as I go along/

Remember that night in Dalston Superstore?/
You told me I kissed/ like a teenage boy/
And that painting I wanted still hangs on my wall/
As soon as I make some real money I'll pay you for sure/ Oh for sure
As soon as I make some real money/ I'll pay you for sure.
