Cold black coffee
Incessant stream of cars
Cigarette ash lies sprinkled like a fistful of grey stars
Yesterday it rained silver rainbows on the ground
Today the rains just water
It wont stop from falling down

I grow weary waiting for my muse
But in between the times she comes
I still have to tie my shoes
And get on with my day
There are mornings when Im more vigorous
And there are days I have to take the bus

Lifes so rich
Lifes so empty

Secret rendezvous
Long distance from a phone booth
Like two players in a mystery straight out of our youth
Well Im finding that dramatics have lost their old appeal
I play the part of stoic lover but Im not sure how I feel
I get discouraged waiting for the world
To understand this love affair
To understand the girl
There are moments when amelias right beside me
The next thing I know
I taste the salt of the sea

Lifes so rich
Lifes so empty

Cold black coffee
Incessant stream of cars
Cigarette ash lies sprinkled like a fistful of grey stars
Yesterday it rained silver rainbows on the ground
Today the rains just water
It wont stop from falling down

I grow weary Im waiting for the world
To understand this love affair
To understand the girl
There are moments when amelias right beside me
The next thing I know, I taste the salt of the sea

Lifes so rich
Lifes so empty
Lifes so strange
Oh
