Waterloo Sunset Lyrics

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling
Flowing into the night
People so busy, makes me feel dizzy
Taxi light shines so bright
But I don’t need no friends
As long as I gaze on waterloo sunset
I am in paradise

Every day I look at the world...

    A beautiful song, I myself live in waterloo, london. The place isn't that great, the bench outside waterloo station doesn't have that great a view (it's a dirty river) but for this guy, "As long as I gaze on, waterloo sunset, I am in paradise" and I suppose the song is just about that special place where you feel safe and sound, an island of sanity in a world gone mad, and that's why I feel this song is a very beautiful one and one of my favourites.
