london lyrics – brandon heath

my train pulled in to waterloo
i found myself wishing you
were here with me in london
standing on the river thames
taking photographs of parliament
and old big ben was ringing

you know it’s everything that i imagined it would be
i had no idea that it would feel this empty

where are you tonight
while i stand here and cry
watching double-decker buses p*ss me by
and to tell you the truth
it’s all that i can do
to keep from jumping a plane that’s headed home
to you

i took a stroll down abbey road
tried to peak inside the studio’s
and somewhere along the way i bought you flowers
and a pocket map of the underground
cause you and i both know i get turned around
i’m so lost without you

though it’s everything that i imagined it would be
i had no idea that it would feel this empty

chorus

6 long nights and seven days i’ll cross the pond back to the states
i can’t wait

where are you tonight while i stand here and cry
watching all the black umbrellas p*ss me by
and to tell you the truth it’s all that i can do
to keep from jumping on a plane headed home
so i’m jumping on a plane headed home to you
