Crazy Café

Do you remember the Crazy Café
Night curtained by the crystal mist
I breathed the poetry from your lips and blew it back again
And you said only lazy people blow their kisses

And it was just another throwaway line
What a fool
Couldn’t comprehend
Would have been so much smarter
Just to leave it lying there

Do you remember sun showers
Rain falling not a cloud in the sky
We dodged those raindrops for hours and hours
Just to keep our powder dry

And it was just another throwaway line
What a fool
Couldn’t comprehend
Would have been so much easier
Just to leave it lying there

Love in all its darkest colours
Had me blinded high and low
You take a flower in a good hand
Crush it as you let it go

It was just another throwaway line
What a fool
Couldn’t understand
Would have been so much wiser
Just to leave it lying there
