SOHO MISSES YOU

 

The thought of you got me up again today.

Light shafts on fall leaves in your streets.

As I brushed my teeth street sweepers in luminous jackets Scrubbed gutter foam over tarmac as the traffic creeped.

As I did my tie, sweet Thames played the blues through you.

All your winding clefts, all your bars I knew.

The thought of you got me up again today Just thinking about the person I could be In the heart of the city.

The person I could become in your streets

Great city, you have my heart.

Take me Home.
