  • I see you from the sky
    And I wonder how long it will take me to get home
    I wait for an hour or so at the carousel
    I have a cigarette to pass the time
    Cause the traffic's hell

    I don't want anything more
    Than to see your face when you open the door
    You'll make me beans on toast and a nice cup of tea
    And we'll get a Chinese and watch TV
    Tomorrow we'll take the dog for a walk
    And in the afternoon then maybe we'll talk
    I'll be exhausted so I'll probably sleep
    And we'll get a Chinese and watch TV

    You wipe the tears from my eye
    And you say that all that it takes is a phone call
    I cry at the thought of being alone and then
    I wonder how long it will take til I'm home again

    I don't want anything more
    Than to see your face when you open the door
    You'll make me beans on toast and a nice cup of tea
    And we'll get a Chinese and watch TV
    Tomorrow we'll take the dog for a walk
    And in the afternoon then maybe we'll talk
    I'll be exhausted so I'll probably sleep
    And we'll get a Chinese and watch TV

    I know it doesn't seem so fair
    But I'll send you a postcard when I get there

    I don't want anything more
    Than to see your face when you open the door
    You'll make me beans on toast and a nice cup of tea
    And we'll get a Chinese and watch TV
    Tomorrow we'll take the dog for a walk
    And in the afternoon then maybe we'll talk
    I'll be exhausted so I'll probably sleep
    And we'll get a Chinese and watch TV Writer/s: GREGORY KURSTIN, LILY ALLEN
