lyrics

Bedroom In Arles

Leaving fresh flowers in a rented room
Paris doesn’t make it in the rain and gloom
South of France moonlight magical things
Colors on the brush like fairy wings

I couldn’t see without you
Could never be without you
Don’t you know this song is about you?

Sudden life glory of Provençal sun
Yellow light falling over everyone
Colored ribbon rivers and the peopled cafes
Poppies in the meadows and a field of gray

I couldn’t see without you
Could never be without you
Don’t you know this song is about you?

In a way it’s going faster
And in a way it’s going slow
If you think you can outlast her
You never know

Cafe with a terrace on a starry night
A pair of old shoes in the candle light
Talk and drink absinthe every night and noon
My yellow chair friends in a crowded room

I never know about you
I just never know about you
I got nothin’ to show without you

I couldn’t see without you
Could never be without you
Don’t you know this song is about you?
