He was so kind, such a gentleman tied to the Oceanside
Lightin a match on the suitcases latch in the fadin of night
Ruffled the fur of the collie neath the table
Ran out the door through the dark
Carved out his initials in the bar
When the earth shook that was all that it took for the dream to break
All the loose ends would surround me again in the shape of your face
What makes me love you despite the reservations
What do I see in your eyes besides my reflection hang in time
Are you off somewhere reciting incantations
Sim sala bim on your tongue
Carving off the hair of someone's young
Remember when you had me cut your hair
Call me Delilah then I wouldn't care
