As the evening sky grew dark,
She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones.
â€™twas then he felt alone and wished that heâ€™d gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate.
They walked along by the old canal
A little confused, I remember well
And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burninâ€™ bright.
He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train
Moving with a simple twist of fate.
A saxophone someplace far off played
As she was walkinâ€™ by the arcade.
As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was wakinâ€™ up,
She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate
And forgot about a simple twist of fate.
He woke up, the room was bare
He didnâ€™t see her anywhere.
He told himself he didnâ€™t care, pushed the window open wide,
Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate
Brought on by a simple twist of fate.
He hears the ticking of the clocks
And walks along with a parrot that talks,
Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailers all come in.
Maybe sheâ€™ll pick him out again, how long must he wait
Once more for a simple twist of fate.
People tell me itâ€™s a sin
To know and feel too much within.
I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring.
She was born in spring, but I was born too late
Blame it on a simple twist of fate.
