This song is performed by Frank Turner.
We saw in the dawn from the roof of the bar
When nights become days and you've gone too far
We listened to songbirds and rush hour cars and welcomed in the day
You said, "London in summertime is great,
On days like this I feel like I could escape
From things that I've done and mistakes that I've made.
I'd wash it all away"

We bathed like swimmers in the morning sun, and waited for our night to end
We knew that one of us would come down hard and one of us would start again

We started out curious, it started out fun
We smoked in the woods when we were young
And secretly slipped something under our tongues
And danced the night away
And everyone stumbles on old cocaine
It burns out the best, and it burdens the brain
'Til brown comes and whisks away your pain and you find you've lost your way

We bathed like swimmers in the morning sun, and waited for our night to end
We knew that one of us would come down hard and one of us would start again

You'd sink in the river for your death
You'd sleep with the fishes, draw no breath
Swallow forever 'til nothing's left
Take no rest

Oh my friend, if you made for the shore you'd see us here, we're all waiting
Just cast your eyes down to the floor, you'll see us here, we're waiting

Don't sink in the river for your death
You could sleep in the shade, draw some breath
You could start fresh tomorrow, leave what's left
Please draw breath, please draw breath
Let's let nights become days

So come down kid the roof's not safe now
All my friends are waiting for you to get some rest
