In the medieval night
twas loves design
And the sky was open
Like a valentine
All the lacy lights
Where wishes fall
And like shakespeares child
I wished on them all

Ahh to be your destiny
Was all that I pursued
I could see the sights
From the lofty heights
But my heart obscured the view

I was looking for you
Looking for you
What could I do
I was looking for you

Along the black river
The ambassador jewels
And you were reflected
In all that I saw
In the towers of gold
In the wheel and wing
Gripping my senses
Like an ancient claim

Many is the time I knelt in the light
Appealing to all that I know
Guide my eyes and steps
That I may find love true

Refrain

Come on darlin
All that hearts desire
Was written before us
In the medieval fire
It was loves design
In the glittering stars
Like shakespeares child
To be where you are

From the portobello road
To the port of marseilles
Where the dervish turns
Where the wild goats play

Looking for you
I was
