lyrics

A sunny day, we walked for hours.
We sat in stonewalled relics on lonely hills
with dry, wild vineyards. And in the air,
the scent of wine and bottled time - I breathed it in.

One bright morning, I awoke with a yearning.
The atlas by the bed was shredded and burning.
With a chorus resounding, my senses were pounding.
I guess I must have been hibernating.
My flesh became grounded; my soul was astounded;
the atlas by the bed had evaporated.
My lungs grew deeper; I drank litres of water;
you appreciate life when you unplug the computer.
With one last string on a battered guitar,
I went strumming and singing to the top of the hill.
I travelled into the wind. I saw the sunset from
beginning to end.

France - there, I found a lifeline in the wink of an eye:
dancing through the fields of France with you.

Driving on the Autoroute, better wear a parachute!
Crash helmet - bulletproof!
It's a tour de vitesse with style and finesse.
Move over, Baby - you're underdressed.

A storm was brewing; my spirit ungluing.
My head fell over, losing everything in France.
I lost my footing then, tripped over old Napoleon.
I tumbled forward into everything in France.
With the scent of wine and bottled time,
my chest fell open breathing all the air in France.
And then the angels came, caressing everything.
My heart fell open, bleeding all the blood in France.
I checked my wristwatch, ran out to check the towerclock.
Time stool still, freezing everything in France.

I shake the air with a weather vane.
Swinging around, I summon the fields of France.
I still dance with you.
