vanishing co

I fell in love with a bad bad man
Every since I met him
I’ve been sad sad sad
June faded in the bloom
The september moon waned and gloomed
Your perfume haunted me
Long after I saw
The swing
Of heaven’s gate
Opening toward me

Luxurious in your arms
Your smile
Is a cool sun in the dark
Misery rejoices when you near
And fever,
No sound of sickness keeps me burning down in my heart
Winter melts, she shys away
Quiet, like the silence a dying star makes
I’m a jailbird to your music, a criminal in your prayers
I watch you when you sleep, even when you’re not there

Rainbows wept colour all over the streets
When you went away
Maybe one day we’ll meet
Lipstick I’d wear for one million years
Just to stop your eyes from
Fallin’ them tears

Picture this: your lips on my lips
A mirror has to do for now
‘Cos you vanished like a cloud
Rainbows wept colour all over the streets
When you went away
Maybe one day we’ll met
Oh woman you callin’ me
Haven’t slept a wink since 1916
I wasn’t born then,
But sure feel times been tickin’

Shadows parade outside my door
I wish we were dancing 'cross this old floor
Car horns honkin’ down that dirty street
Wish you were yelling time to wash my feet
Lipstick I’d wear
For one million years
Just to stop the tears
Your eyes from fallin’, fallin’ ..
