As you tripped from my arms I could tell you were
And close by the Pont Notre Dame you bought some
chocolate cake and I rolled a cigarette,
I said ‘Why don’t we take the metro back to our room?’
You said ‘For Christ’s sake, not yet’.
And the heavens opened and we got soaked to the skin on
the Boulevard St Michel ….
And at the hotel with some Pinot Grigio and a bag of
I said ‘Come lie down here, mademoiselle’,
But in my arms you were as limp as a doll, limp as a
body they’d dredge from the Seine,
Then you sat in the window looking out at the lights
and the clock ticked loud as a train,
I knew you wished you were anywhere else, and it’s like
I went insane ….
And it’s somebody else’s night out there and someone
And somebody else’s panic I feel and someone else’s
And every love longs to be betrayed and then be
And it never works out OK like in a movie …..
When we got home, ‘Let’s pretend it never happened’ you
But you don’t answer your phone ….
One rainy night I saw you out walking home with a crowd
It was getting dark and I wanted to speak, I don’t
By then you seemed in such a different world and your
name stalled on my tongue ……
