A love song from a London nightbus

lyrics

THE LAST RELAY - Kirsten McClure

Take me home
Warm and bright you part the crowd like a comb
Heading north
Up the street where the brotherhood was born
The sister’s still feeling bleak
Babel kisses find tongue in cheek
Bottle rolls between our feet
I wonder if your light’s still on
I been thinking of you all day long
How the walls are crumbling down

Windows steam
Like a cloud that’s holding in a scream
Broken sleep
Hit the curb then fall back in a heap
My neighbour's sweet face has slipped
Out of another relationship
The angry monarch’s looking down
I wonder if your light’s still on
I’ve been thinking of you all day long
Everything’s changing in this town

The grand dames do Grimaldi’s dance
Staggering heals scatter feet like chance
Angel sighs through the London plane
I tune in to another song
One I’ve been dreaming my whole life long
Dream as sweet as blossom breeze

I need you
Like the morning needs the sun I need you
I want you
I can feel it in my cells I want you
If nothing’s all I can have
It’s better than something that
I never wanted anyway
If nothing’s all I can have
It’s better than something that
I never wanted anyway
