(Verlaine)
I've been given a fortune
a fortune in lies
so spoke Laura
as she closed her eyes
One by one
the lights are going out
Names are forgotten
There's darkness in the house
So Laura came to the water
without a word on her breath
so Laura came to the water...
where is the fellow who knows her by heart
who cares not a thing for those dealing in part
There comes coolness
to the palm of her hand
as she watches the lilies
blooming in the sand
So Laura came to the water
without a word on her breath
so Laura came to the water...
