AFFAIR ON 8TH AVENUE (Gordon Lightfoot) Gordon Lightfoot Also recorded by : The Brothers Four The perfume that she wore was from some little store On the down side of town But it lingered on long after shed gone I remember it well And our fingers entwined like ribbons of light And we came through a doorway somewhere in the night Her long flowing hair came softly undone And it lay all around And she brushed it down as I stood by her side In the warmth of her love And she showed me her treasures of paper and tin And then we played a game only she could win And she told me a riddle Ill never forget Then left with the answer Ive never found yet How long, said she, can a moment like this Belong to someone Whats wrong, what is right, when to live or to die We must almost be born So if you should ask me what secrets I hide Im only your lover, dont make me decide The perfume that she wore was from some little store On the down side of town But it lingered on long after shed gone I remember it well And she showed me her treasures of paper and tin And then we played a game only she could win And our fingers entwined like ribbons of light And we came through a doorway somewhere in the night
