london bridge lyrics – bread

(piano intro)
i know the times, the times are hard to bear
it’s hard to find someone to really care (the “are” in “care” is held for a while)
but before i went down and out,
here’s what i used to think about, think about: (the “bout” in “about” is held for a while)
(quick drum solo)

london bridge is always fallin’ down,
but there it stood within the heart of town,
reminding everyone of life behind and life to come…
(piano mixed with cymbals play)

the changes taking place are everywhere,
(special keyboard “voice” plays)
the centuries past have nothing to compare (“are”, prounounced as air, in “compare” is held for a while)
where they stand, where they trip and fall
watch the writing on the wall, on the wall
(drums, piano, chorus, and singers)

london bridge is fallin’ down at last,
and so another memory of the past
has fell beneath the blade, but soon the dead may be repaid
(special keyboard “voice” solo)

i know things just can’t evolve for all eternity
the thoughts will leave, will never die,
and now so you can see (the “ee” in “see” is held for a long time)

(h*rns/trumpets, drums, piano, cymbals, chorus, and singers)
london bridge is finally fallin’ down,
it packed it up and shipped it outta town
and though the horror’s gone, the memory will linger on

london bridge is finally fallin’ down,
it used to stand within the heart of town
reminding everyone of life behind and life to come

london bridge is finally fallin’ down…(fades)
