The world And the surrounding stars Might change completely in the space of an hour But not an eclipse of the sky nor a colliding car Will turn me back now that I've come this far. Not a shotgun blast nor a shooting star Will bring her down from her stubborn tower. It's a kind of madness, it's a kind of sin To live in the state of mind I've been living in Her face imprinted on my sight Her voice resounding in my skull at night. If there is a living goddess on earth It must be her from the heaven highlife It takes this girl to realise what you're worth And I'm worth nothing if she's worth more than my life. But there's more to me than simple devotion I won't just crawl at her feet and utter a plea And if she refused I wouldn't walk into the ocean Just because my world was left all out at sea. So it was in this cafe when we eventually met And I wished I had sunglasses and smoked cigarettes The world And the surrounding stars They change completely in the space of an hour When over the table and two cups of tea She told me she felt the same way about me. And not an eclipse of the sky nor a colliding car Could have shaken our attention from each other's face As we both stepped down from our stubborn towers We jump into the ignorant heaven that is the lover's place.
