I first saw you in Timbuktu
Then in a poop bar in Katmandu?
Travelled to Cairo in a Jeep
I saw you lying in a colourful heap.
Then I saw you in a Paris disco
And a gay bar in San Francisco
Drove down to Mexico City
Where I saw you down and shitty.
Down along Route 66 to enjoy the vista
But picked up in Kansas by a twister
You were with Dorothy and her sister
Took a flight on a kite to Cuba
Paddling on the beach in a Scuba
I saw you ride a surfboard through an angry hurricane
So why do I keep seeing you again and again and again?
I flew down to Rio on the wings of a Phoenix
Dancing in my G-String with the beatniks
I saw you on a carnival float
Dressed up as a love boat
You danced like one big sugarloaf
Next to a caramel girl with an overcoat
I looked at you and smiled
But I walked away in denial.
I smoked a Havana in Copacabana
Dreamed of running naked through the grassy Savanna
Bathed in moonlight in broad daylight
Venus sparkled and Mercury stood bright
But you looked down at my moonlit face
You kissed me and we fell into a warm embrace.
Stepping into this moment in time
I surrendered my heart to be entwined.
Now we are towards at the end of this verse
Of all the gin joints in the universe
We are finally perpetually immersed.
Sometimes love comes in unexpected places.
And special thanks to Charlie The Tramp for making me fall in love with this song FALLING by The Durutti Column.
