Lovelorn in London Town stems from a 2003 song writing session, and is more or less completely fictional. Image ca. mid 2000s.

Lovelorn in London Town

From morn to friendless night,

He tramps the streets,

Just in case he might

Come across her,

He’s a tragic sight,

But he don’t care,

Love gives him might,

He haunts the cafés and the discos

And the bars, so lovelorn.

He knows that he won’t find her,

But he’s got

To keep on trying,

It gives some meaning

To his life,

It gives some substance

To his time,

It is his motive, and his project,

And his plan, so lovelorn.

He only met her once,

But it changed his life,

And it changed his type,

And it changed his mind,

They say he once was a successful man,

But he threw it all up

As if he’d gone insane,

And he took to the streets,

And another man was born,

They say love comes but

Once for some,

But when it does,

It’s like a mighty

Atom bomb inside,

A disease that seizes

A gentle soul,

And if it comes for you,

You’d better try to hide.

From morn to friendless night,

He tramps the streets,

Just in case he might

Come across her,

He’s a tragic sight,

But he don’t care,

Love gives him might,

He haunts the cafés and the discos

And the bars, so lovelorn.
