lyrics

NOT EVEN A SECOND
I’m going up to the top of the hill
But what lies beyond is a mystery still
I ponder upon it but just for a short while
My legs plodding into the last mile
My bones set to shaking
With anticipation
But I never will see you again

I don’t give a damn if I’m big in Japan
Or the lies that you told about Amsterdam
You left me in Berlin but I lost you in France
Then it was over, our dance of romance
I was clutching at straws when you let go my hand
And there was no wishing for lips I was missing
Lips I’d never be kissing again

We’re in all the papers but nobody knows us
As man will dispose of the Gods he proposes
It’s like a magician dismissing tradtion
And throwing away all his best acquisitions
Dead eyes and dead hair and my soiled underwear
And I never will see you again

I don’t want to talk of that night in Milan
Or when you left me for dead back in old Amsterdam
And if I could see you for just one last day
Or maybe an hour of maybe a minute
Not even a second you say

I called you Caravaggio
As we fought in that bar in Ontario
And if I could see you for just one last day
Or maybe an hour of maybe a minute
Not even a second you say
