"Boogie Street" lyrics

Boogie Street

O crown of light
O darkened one
I never thought we'd meet
You kiss my lips
And then you're gone
And I'm back on Boogie Street

A sip of wine
A cigarette
And then it's time to go
I tidied up the kitchenette
I tuned the old banjo
I'm wanted at
The traffic-jam
They're saving me a seat
I'm what I am
And what I am
Is back on Boogie Street

And oh my love, I still recall
The pleasures that we knew
The rivers and the waterfall
Wherein I bathed with you
Bewildered by your beauty there
I'd kneel to dry your feet
By such instructions you prepare
A man for Boogie Street

O crown of light
O darkened one
I never thought we'd meet
You kiss my lips
And then it's done
I'm back
Back on Boogie Street

So come, my friends
Be not afraid
We are so lightly here
It is in love that we are made
In love we disappear
Though all the maps
Of blood and flesh
Are posted on the door
There's no one who has told us yet
What Boogie Street is for

O crown of light
O darkened one
I never thought we'd meet
You kiss my lips
And then it's done
And I'm back
Back on Boogie Street

A sip of wine
A cigarette
And then it's time to go
I tidied up the kitchenette
I tuned the old banjo
I'm wanted at
The traffic-jam
They're saving me a seat
I'm what I am
And what I am
Is back on Boogie Street
