Boogie Street


O Crown of Light, O Darkened One,
I never thought wed meet
You kiss my lips, and then its done:
Im back on Boogie Street

A sip of wine, a cigarette,
And then its time to go
I tidied up the kitchenette;
I tuned the old banjo
Im wanted at the traffic-jam
Theyre saving me a seat
Im what I am, and what I am,
Is back on Boogie Street

And O 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,
Id kneel to dry your feet
By such instructions you prepare
A man for Boogie Street

O Crown of Light, O Darkened One

So come, my friends, be not afraid
We are so lightly here
It is in love that we are made;
In love we disappear
Tho all the maps of blood and flesh
Are posted on the door,
Theres no one who has told us yet
What Boogie Street is for

O Crown of Light, O Darkened One,
I never thought wed meet
You kiss my lips, and then its done:
Im back on Boogie Street

A sip of wine, a cigarette,
And then its time to go
