The London I Love
I only have to close my eyes And visions of a love arise Changed though she may be In dreams I'll always see My London as the daylight dies Street lamps aglow And news boys calling City I know With twilight falling Deep in my heart I keep recalling The London I love Small cosy bars And cheerful greeting Long lines of cars And lovers meeting Under the stars A heart is beating The London I love Breathless and fast The crowd hurries past There's a glow in the London sky Velvety dark The trees in the park Touch my heart, and I don't know why Mayfair hotels Their windows beaming Chiming of bells The river gleaming You are my dream I'm always dreaming The London I love Bright coloured lights Palladium nights And a world that was always gay All you have been Will stay ever green In my heart till another day Laughter and song And swing doors turning When will these things Be more than yearning? Come back, my world With bright lights burning The London I love
