The London I Love Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
Street lamps aglow
And news boys calling
City I know
With twilight falling
Deep in my heart I keep recalling
The London I love
Verse 3
Small cosy bars
And cheerful greeting
Long lines of cars
And lovers meeting
Under the stars
A heart is beating
The London I love
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
Mayfair hotels
Their windows beaming
Chiming of bells
The river gleaming
You are my dream
I'm always dreaming
The London I love
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
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
