Lyrics

London Town

Written By: Thane

Chorus:
Let's go down to London Town
Let's go down to London Town
Have you seen the sights and sounds
Let's go down to London Town

Verse 1:
Bridges high, crashing down
Let's go down to London Town
Take me to the underground
Let's go down to London Town

Verse 2:
Ferris wheel 'round and 'round
Let's go down to London Town
Pick me up, drop me down
Let's go down to London Town

Verse 3:
See the queen wear her crown
Let's go down to London Town
Reach the throne take your bow
Let's go down to London Town

Bridge:
We'll go out, hit the town
'Til my feel don't touch the ground
In the streets, lost and found
Let's go down, let's go down
Let's go down to London Town...

Thane - Diamonds in the Rain (Joe De Simone)

Written By: Thane

Somewhere out there, a star is shining down
Silver whispers come floating to the ground
Do you feel alone? So much hurt inside
Everything will be revealed to you
Why does it make you cry?

Listen to the rain falling when the world is driving you insane
Listen to the rain falling, but can you see diamonds in the rain?
Rain falling, when the world is driving you insane
Listen to the rain falling, but can you see diamonds in the rain?

Age old love song, playing on the radio
Written some four and twenty years ago
Do you feel afraid, sorrow in your heart?
Everything will be revealed like a lantern in the dark

Listen to the rain
Listen to the rain
Why does it make
Why does it, why does it make you, make you cry?
