South circular

I’ve been standing by a cheap hotel on the Old Kent Road
Take me home past cathedral spires and California sunsets
Sleeping commuters bob like peaches in plastic crates, dreaming of anywhere, bruised and bouncing on potholes in bus lanes

So take me home past cathedral spires
Take me home past the northern lights
South circular

You took me dancing, you took me through heartbreak, love and heartbreak
Now take me home past the northern lights and South Pacific islands
185, 53 and 122 take me anywhere scenic and beautiful, I’ll still come falling back to you

So take me home past cathedral spires
Take me home past the northern lights
Take me home past Tahiti skies
South circular

So take me home past the Catherine wheels
Take me home past the reservoirs
Take me high on the cable cars
South circular
