I’ve lived and worked in London for a number of years, yet despite it’s magnetic pull I always leave for one reason or another. Maybe it’s a kind of love/hate relationship kind of thing, maybe it says a lot about me...


Always Leaving London

Peeling paint and frozen windows
Behind four walls where no-one cares
Blissful moments before she goes
Always Leaving London

Learning that we're bound by numbers
And science always pays the bills
Streets of gold all filled with wonders
Always Leaving London

Caught inside the big machine
Paying the price of necessity
Grinding every hope and every dream
Always Leaving London

I don't believe in luck
Or how you roll the dice
If there's no-one listening
Then take your own advice
Maybe I need some help
Or is it something else?
What I've found
Is heaven sent

Inside the holy trinity
Are these precious things
Far from here will set me free
Always Leaving London
Always Leaving London
Always Leaving London
