Give yourself the time it takes
To read the magazine that makes the world go round
But spare yourself the problem pages
You and I could shame them all
You and I
Platform porter silent thinker
Daydream dancer coffee drinker
No one smiles
Attention please loud speaker grating
On your way London’s waiting
No goodbyes
Midnight London
Midnight London

Tomorrow’s chimes can seem so far away from yesterday
And summer skies seem always to be blue
But sun on a clear day won’t shine in a subway
And crowds become clouds over you

Almost on the point of talking
Mind on fire but dead man walkng
Stares ahead
Summer but it feels like winter
Conversation icy splinter
Hangs unheard

Focus on the destination
Must avoid an altercation
Tact required
Chance now gone for explanation
Leaving hopeless desperation
Time expired

Midnight London
Midnight London

Midnight London now leaving
Midnight London now leaving
Midnight London now leaving
