one, two...
and I thought that I'd lost you
unwilling to carry the tune
I'd just as soon as forget it...

'cause it's so true,
what they say about no news is good news,
when you can only loose your mind reading the headlines...

but the gold hoops,
through your ears hanging these long loops,
that sway in circles that twist and turn as you move yourself around...

and I'll never forget the sound

even in the sunlight I couldn't catch your eye,
you would always pass me by,
only in the moonlight would you comprimise,
still you'd only leave me crying...

clocked like an old grandfather,
with a heartfelt hook to the mouth,
those diamonds and pearls swinging low in your curls
are only dragging you south

your just like the bird on the wire
you are the only light for miles
straight out of the east with an intent to release
a whirlwind in a smile
and all the while.....

i never forgot the sound
