Lyrics



Oxford Street

I want to be there again
In that time when I called you friend
Before we both learned, we learned too much about this world
In that place where we would meet
There at 18 Oxford Street
There was something that we knew that they could never understand


But you went running off towards the wrong direction
Went too far down that road till you could not return
And on your journey there, well something died inside you
The friend I knew is gone and what remains I'd rather never meet


I want to be there again
In that time when I called you friend
Before we both learned, we learned too much about this world
In that place where we would meet
There at 18 Oxford Street
There was something that we had that they could never take away


But it is foolish now to think back on those memories
Though we were happy then we were both na´ve
And when I see you now on Oxford Street it feels
Just like my friend has died, cause what remains I'd rather never meet

People they come and go, most aren't worth remembering
But we had some thing more, a bond that has been shattered
But when I see your lifeless shell on Oxford Street
You're just like all the fools who if I chose I'd rather never meet


I want to be there again
In that time when I called you friend
Before we both learned, we learned too much about this world
In that place where we would meet
There at 18 Oxford Street
There was something that we had that life has come and took away
