In the tower, the lover sighs
“Good sir knight, please take my eyes — I’ve used them”
“Doctor, Doctor, I’m on fire!”
“Oh, I’m sad to hear that, squire — we’re closing”
She snuffs you out like silk
And pours you out like milk
But just before the dawn appears, stealing all the blue away
And just before all your perspectives change
Isn’t it strange?

On the black Fellini sails
Tattered rags that hangs on nails reminds me
You, the mistress of your chair
I, the sergeant of your hair — you blind me
You turn me on like light
A silver liquid light
That emanates inside of you, decorates the room around you
Just before the curtains part for dawn
And everything’s gone

She had one long pair of eyes
She had one long pair of eyes between her
One long pair or eyes
So she could see you

Oh.

On the lone Norwegian shore
Lovers weep for evermore in evening
With the clouds above their heads
Go back to their lonesome beds and leave them
She falls on you like rain
When will she fall again?
Oh just before the dawn appears, draining all the blue away
And just before all your perspectives change
Isn’t that strange?

She had one long pair of eyes
She had one long pair of eyes between her
One long pair of eyes
She had one long pair of eyes between her
One long pair of eyes
Oh, she had one long pair of eyes between her
One long pair of eyes
So she could see you

Oh, oh, oh, oh.

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid, no I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh stand now by me, stand by me, stand by me-e, yeah

And darlin’, darlin’, stand by me, oh stand by me
Oh, stand now by me, stand by me, stand by me-e, yeah

Whenever you’re in trouble won’t you stand by me, oh now now stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me
Oh stand by me, stand by me

Slowly slowly, with hesitating steps,
Alone he travels with a shattered mind
Back to the old well trodden places
To find the sun in a sunken world

From the beginning, in an unsuspecting age
Without a sound he crawls behind old forms
Then a voice comes to guide him sweetly
To forever lost familiar ports

The birds departed into the night
Carrying love on their wings
Their dreams, like lost stars,
Were scattered forever in the south

So young and with an eager face
Finds the primal rhythm through his games
While music, like a secret flame,
Spreads a sea of color in his eyes

Slowly slowly, with hesitating steps
Finds love makes him so bewildered
And keeps returning to the depths
To find the sun in a sunken world

The birds departed into the night
Carrying love on their wings
Their dreams, like lost stars,
Were scattered forever in the south

Tick, tock, go the death watch beetles in él presidente’s swill
Pop, pop, goes the Cliquot magnum at the reading of the will
Hiss, hiss, goes the snakeskin wallet stuffed with Cruziero bills

Here we come, the jet set junta
Here we come, the jet set junta

Broom, broom, goes the armoured Cadillac through Montevideo
Rat-a-tat goes the sub-machine gun to restore the status quo
Snip, snip, go the tailor’s scissors on the suit in Saville Row

Here we come, the jet set junta
Here we come, the jet set junta

Thud, thud, goes the rubber truncheon on the Indian peon’s heel
Buzz, buzz, go the brass electrodes as the flesh begins to peel
Rattle, rattle, goes the bullet round and round the roulette wheel

Here we come, the jet set junta
Here we come, the jet set junta

Do not despair and it won t be long
until on a dawn she will come to you
and she will be asking you for new love
have a bit of patience

And she will be asking you for new love
have a bit of patience

Send away the clouds from your heart
and don t keep yourself awake in tears
so what that she is not now in your arms?
She will come back one day, don t you forget it

So what that she is not now in your arms?
She will come back one day, don t you forget it

On a sweet dawn she will wake you up
and your love will be resurrected
New love is going to be brought to life
have a bit of patience

Your breath is sweet
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie
But I don’t sense affection
No gratitude or love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go.
To the valley below.

Your daddy he’s an outlaw
And a wanderer by trade
He’ll teach you how to pick and choose
And how to throw the blade
He oversees his kingdom
So no stranger does intrude
His voice it trembles as he calls out
For another plate of food.

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go.
To the valley below.

Your sister sees the future
Like your mama and yourself
You’ve never learned to read or write
There’s no books upon your shelf
And your pleasure knows no limits
Your voice is like a meadowlark
But your heart is like an ocean
Mysterious and dark.

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ‘fore I go.
To the valley below.
