A Foggy Day
Romantic Strings and Orchestra Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I was a stranger in the city
Out of town were the people I knew
I had that feeling of self-pity
What to do, what to do, what to do
The outlook was decidedly blue

But as I walked through the foggy streets alone
It turned out to be the luckiest day I've known

A foggy day, in London town
Had me low, had me down
I viewed the morning, with much alarm
British Museum, had lost its charm

How long I wondered,
Could this thing last
But the age of miracles, hadn't past
For suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy London town,
The sun was shining everywhere

For suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy London town,
The sun was shining everywhere

Everywhere




Everywhere
Everywhere

Line by Line Meaning

I was a stranger in the city
I was new in the city which means I had not much to do


Out of town were the people I knew
I was away from my friends and family


I had that feeling of self-pity
I felt helpless and alone in the big city


What to do, what to do, what to do
I didn't know what to do to lift myself out of this miserable feeling


The outlook was decidedly blue
Things didn't look promising and the future seemed bleak


But as I walked through the foggy streets alone
While walking in the misty streets without any company


It turned out to be the luckiest day I've known
I got lucky and found something that changed my life on this day


A foggy day, in London town
A misty day in the city of London


Had me low, had me down
The weather was not good which contributed to my bad mood


I viewed the morning, with much alarm
I woke up anxious and worried about the day ahead


British Museum, had lost its charm
Even the British Museum that I previously enjoyed seemed dull today


How long I wondered,
I questioned how long will I feel like this


Could this thing last
Could this feeling of loneliness and misery persist


But the age of miracles, hadn't past
But the era of extraordinary and auspicious events was not over yet


For suddenly, I saw you there
Out of nowhere, I saw you and it made me happy


And through foggy London town,
Despite the misty city of London


The sun was shining everywhere
I saw the brightness in everything around me because of your presence


Everywhere
In every direction


Everywhere
Anywhere and everywhere


Everywhere
All around me
