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
