Leo Sayer – An Englishman In The Usa lyrics

Writers: Leo Sayer & Les Davidson

Rambling 'round your city streets
I feel no earth beneath my feet
And I feel my life
Is crumbling into, into the sea
But I can't swim
Three thousand miles
So all I have is lonely nights
I'm an englishman
Lost in the usa

And it's a long way back home
Such a long way back home
And I'm wondering
Where am I gonna go
Line's dead -- operator's gone
And now the fear is coming on
And I hear my love
Wondering where have I gone
So I'm gambling bucks for pounds
Yeah, but lady luck
Just won't come around
For an englishman
Who is stuck in the usa

And it's a long way back home
Such a long way back home
And I'm wondering
Will I ever get away

So here I am and there are you
Where wishful thoughts
Don't serve no use
And all the worrying in the world
Won't pull me through
So I think of love that
Might have been
And an airline ticket
That's like a dream
For an englishman
Who is lost in the usa

Such a long way back home
Such a long way back home
And I'm wondering
Will I ever get to go

And I'm waiting for you
To take me home
