Track Name: A London Room
A London Room

London can be as lonely as a mountain
Since you went away it’s lost its soul
London rents are mighty & keep mounting
And these buildings seem to take a bloody toll.

Since you went away my heart is grieving
Since you went away my world is wrong
Love is nothing more than a heart wanting:
That life should be more than a lonesome song.

So I sit in the gloom of this shabby London room
As the shadows on the walls whisper your name
So I sit in the gloom of this lonely London room
Writing songs about the trains & the rain
Writing songs about the trains & the rain.

Once upon a time we talked of weddings
I dreamt I’d be a father to your child
Guess I didn’t know where we were heading
Guess that our love had me beguiled.

We were going to live & learn together
We were going to somehow grow & grow
I suppose I thought out love would be forever
So why you walked away I’ll never know.




May your days always being you sunshine
May your child forever find her smile
May your life be joyous as a fine wine
May your days flow softly as the Nile.


Writing songs about the trains & the rain.
