The Swallows Of London Town

This song is by The Autumn Defense and appears on the album Once Around (2010).

Well, the swallows came to land here in London town
And now they're fighting for the spaces in the underground
Are they still fascinated by the life they've found?
Since the swallows came to land here in London town

Strange afternoon
Thinking of you
As the rain comes down

Well, when Betty came to see me, she was on her way
Found a major disappointment with an English play
She said she really only wanted someone with something to say
And before I even said it, she was on her way

Strange afternoon
Following the moon
Through the underground

Holding their own
Tin bells ringing
Looking for a home
On the platform ceiling alone

Well, since the swallows came to land here in London town
I see them selling books and flowers in the underground
Ooh, are they still fascinated by the life they've found?
Since the swallows came to land here in London town

Ooh, strange afternoon
Following the moon
Through the underground

Strange afternoon
Thinking of you
As the rain comes down

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
