Electric Light Orchestra – Last Train To London lyrics

It was 9-29, 9-29 back street big city.
The sun was going down, there was music all around
It felt so right.

It was one of those nights, one of those nights when
You feel the world stop turnin, you were standing
There, there was music in the air. I should have been
Away, but I knew I'd have to stay.


Last train to london, just headin out,
Last train to london, just leavin town.
But I really want tonight to last forever
I really wanna be with you.
Let the music play on down the line tonight.

It was one of those nights, one of those nights when
You feel the fire is burnin, everybody was there,
Everybody to share, it felt so right.

There you were on your own, lookin like you were
The only one around, I had to be with you,
Nothin else that I could do,
I should have been away, but I knew I'd have to say.

Repeat chorus

Underneath a starry sky, time was still but hours
Must really have rushed by, I didn't realize
But love was in your eyes I really should have
Gone, but love went on and on...

Repeat chorus
