Thomas Dolby – Europa And The Pirate Twins lyrics

Ok, I was fourteen, she was twelve
Father travelled, hers as well, Europa
Down the beaches, hand in hand
Twelfth of never on the sand
Then war took her away
We swore a vow that day
We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll stand beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta republique, Europa
Nine years after, who'd I see on the cover of a magazine? Europa
Buy her singles and see all her films
Paste her pictures on my windowsill
But that's not quite the same, it isn't, is it?
Europa my old friend
We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country (Oh my country), Europa
I'll walk beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta republique, Europa
Blew in from the hoverport, she was back in London
Pushed past the papermen, calling her name
She smiled for the cameras as a bodyguard grabbed me
Here eyes were gone forever as they drove her away
We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll walk beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta republique, Europa
We'll be the Pirate Twins again, Europa
Oh my country, look at my country, Europa
I'll stand beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta republique, Europa
Drowning somebody on the Seine, Europa
Oh my country, Europa
I'll walk beside you in the rain, Europa
Ta republique, Europa
