Tonight in Bilbao
I walked the old eroded streets A million miles now have gone behind me Walked in the room, soaked up its fumes Surveyed the faces I am lying to Gave what I had, I gave my heart Though I was broken and falling apart Gave for the memory of a friend Not for myself and not for them When I was done I met someone She came in from the storm so bright and welcome Her friends came and swept her away Disappeared like coyotes off on dark high plains I looked across the river so still Trying to remember Where it was last night I laid my head to sleep Where the empty night hung heavily over I left Bilbao went to Madrid To Barcelona, to Pamplona Where every ghost runs in me now Haunting me I flew in over the red clay roofs And floated through the clouds as they swallowed shut The bronze tinted landing sea And houses row the hills like yellowing teeth When we touched down, opened my eyes to the sun The dizzying air filled my lungs And just as soon she woke me My eyes blurry, my mind heavy I left Milan I went to Rome And carried her aroma to Verona And all the kindness she had shown Was only a dream The Flurries down storm cold gray too? The frozen nights where ignored souls live As last rays of daylight died I'm going into my head and clearing my eyes And as the train pulled away from Cologne The noise down wire so loudly that it groaned And as the engines burned through the night I stared off at far-away lights I left Berlin and I came home To sleeping potions and blue oceans Where my love so selflessly Awaited me I long to feel her light so warm My thoughts racing to the places Where her room invited me Awaited me As the ocean brings in its high tide As the darkness sets upon the beach As we drive we look out at black ends Growing to our windows in old bored stream Over the bridge, the city sparkles so bright A hungry stomach smell brings strife Dim light a television blaring softly And here the perfect night as fog horns sing
