M. Gane & M. Ladly aka Martha & the Muffins - July 1980
Waiting for the dawn for a dream, A chance to lie down
That confused imitation of life Eludes me now.
All routes of resistance impaired by your face
Oh fugitive hope will I see you today?
In a tunnel, on a bridge or a viaduct We'll meet just by chance.
And in a moment or maybe just an hour or so Renew our romance.
And if the charms of foreign places call For changing tableaux
We will auction all our paintings And our furniture
And take to theroad ...
Do you suppose?
The patterns on the wall never change but shadows grow long
Vous n'assassinez de la realite' C'est malheuresement.
As daylight disperses the spectres of night
My nocturnal musings don wings And take flight
