Carlton, Vanessa - London Lyrics




Waste away the days
Waiting on a new age
But time betrays me
And I get older one more year

Walk London's windy streets
Go anywhere but home
'Cause I'm looking for the secrets
That only cobble stones hold
Only the cobble stones know

And I've never been so sure
That after all these years, I'll never learn
That heavenly creatures never come

You've got a knife-throwing kind of love
But your silence cuts the deepest
And I know I've made a mess of things
And I'm sorry for all that
Wish we could get the time back

Because I've never been so sure
That after all these years, I'll never learn
That heavenly creatures never come
Wait for it
Wait for it

Now I'm staring at the sun
As if there's a riddle I'm not in on
'Cause the wolves howl to the Moon
And she never answers back
No, she never answers back

And after all these years, I'll never learn
That heavenly creatures never, never been so sure
That after all these years, I'll never learn
That heavenly creatures never come, oh

Waste away the days
Waiting on a new age

Carlton, Vanessa London Comments
  1. zefanya todoan

    My interpretation about this song is about, the girl who previously believed in to "the second coming"!

    The more she grows up, her belief starts to fade away. She’s waiting and asking about the second coming that seems never come.

    She puts the analogy between "the second coming" with the wolf that howling to the moon, as a form of communication that was never reciprocated.

  2. Miranda Watson

    It still baffles me how this was not made specifically for the infernal devices. I can't get over how spot on It is

  8. Mscape 7777

    You've got a knife-throwing kind of love But your silence cuts the deepest And I know I've made a mess of things And I'm sorry for all that Wish we could get the time back"

    Yup, I' ve always found those lyrics the most profound and true in the song!

    By the way, is Vanessa popular now and doing well? Good for her, she deserves it!

  58. spatulis

    I can see her other albums after 1:40 <3

  59. Yris Music

    Ce titre est très bon, ça démarre vraiment à partir de 1.40 min. Ma préférence va toujours pour "hear the bells" cependant.

  60. ccinbrooklyn

    I love this song..like all of Rabbits on the Run. This one is really dreamy and it feels like you're drifting along.

  61. Rikki Hoover

    @leo87272 I think thats what they were saying, sort of. It's Winding but without the ING, windy. Like Winedy but that wouldnt be how you spell it I guess.

  62. subwaysurfer

    I think she sings: "Walk London's WINDING streets"... what do you think?

  63. dbeedie03

    My new favorite song. I love her <3
