So Long, London

So (So) long (long), London (London)
So (So) long (long), London (London)
(So long, London)
So (So) long (long), London (London)

I saw in my mind fairy lights through the midst
I kept calm and carried the weight to the rift
Pulled them in tighter each time he was drifting away

My spine split from carrying us up the hill
Wet through my clothes
Weary bones got the chill
I stopped trying to make him laugh
Stopped trying to drill the safe
Thinking how much sad did you think I had
Did you think I had in me all the tragedy?

So long, London
You’ll find someone

I didn’t opt in to be your odd man out
I found at the club she’s heard great things about
I left all I knew, you left me at the house by the heath

I stopped CPR
After all, it’s no use
The spirit was gone, we would never come to
And I’m pissed off you let me give you
All that youth for free

For so long, London
Stitches undone
Two graves, one gun
I’ll find someone

And you say I abandoned the ship
But I was going down with it
My wide knuckle dying grip
Holding tight to you, quiet resentment

And my friends said it isn’t right to be scared
Everyday of a love affair
Every breath feels like rarest air
And you’re not sure if he wants to be there

So how much sad did you think I had?
Did you think I had in me
How much tragedy?
Just how low did you think I’d go
‘Fore I’d self-implode
‘Fore I’d have to go be free?

You swore that you loved me
But where were the clues?
I died on the altar waiting for the proof
You sacrificed us to the gods of your bluest days
And I’m just getting color back into my face
I’m just mad as hell ‘cause I loved this place

For so long, London
High up, good run
A moment of warm sun
But I’m not the one

So long, London
Stitches undone
Two graves, one gun
You’ll find someone
