When I Was A Man And You Were A Woman
LYRICS...
When I was a man
And you were a woman
We practiced ourselves
Every day
Every night

A man with no outline
Walking in the shadows
A girl with a blurred face
Leaning in the window

Living our lives on the tides of this city
Moving me to you
Moving me through you
Moving you to me
Moving you through me

When I was a man
And you were a woman
When I was a man
And you were a woman

We met in the arcades
Where the people were meeting
We danced down the avenues
While the people were sleeping

Living our lives on the tides of this city
Moving me to you
Moving me through you
Moving you to me
Moving you through me

When I was a man
And you were a woman
When I was a man
And you were a woman

I was a swimmer in a foggy bar
I was trying to find some sea
I was the sound of the furniture
I was a silhouette for years

She had some blossom on the tip of her tongue
She was the surface of a trade
She was a model for an echo dress
Oh she looked so gold against the grey

When I was a man
And you were a woman
When I was a man
And you were a woman

NOTES...
"Looking back on a Love In A City - Sex and joy and total engagement. How you feel half alive dragging yourself through some dull subway life - money / job / eat / sleep / start all over again etc, etc. Then someone reaches you and the world turns Technicolor. Things fall into the proper perspective. You have your own marvellous bubble for a while. All turns to echoes eventually."
