Bread – London Bridge lyrics

I know the times the times are hard to bear
It's hard to find someone to really care
But before I went down and out
Here's what I used to think about, think about:
London Bridge is always fallin' down,
But there it stood within the heart of town
Reminding everyone of life behind and life to come
The changes taking place are everywhere
The centuries past have nothing to compare
Where they stand, where they trip and fall
Watch the writing on the wall, on the wall
London Bridge is fallin' down at last,
And so another memory of the past
Has fell beneath the blade, but soon the dead may be repaid
I know things just can't evolve for all eternity
The thoughts will leave, will never die, and now so you can see
London Bridge is finally fallin' down,
It packed it up and shipped it outta town
And though the horror's gone, the memory will linger on
London Bridge is finally fallin' down,
It used to stand within the heart of town
Reminding everyone of life behind and life to come
London Bridge is finally fallin' down.....
