From those days in London…

Beautiful Girl on The King’s Road, London

Looking back on the scene,

Well I knew I was right;

I was right to have left you,

And glad to be free.

As I walked through the city

In my short summer dress

I felt one with the city;

Alive and abuzz.

My hair freshly dyed

And a smile on my lips;

I was free of your chains,

And alive and abuzz.

My old life had gone

And I welcomed the new

And the city,

It promised so much…
