  • [Marty] The gondolas, sometimes they sleep. But othertimes they swim.
    [Ann Carlberger] And you?
    [Marty] Me?

    The sudden rush and temptation
    Of drizzle on my window
    To go out and swim in the streets
    With you
    To turn the world into Venice
    To let the water shrink me
    Let me float in my umbrella boat
    With you

    I can see the rain clouds emptying
    Little needles leaning to the left
    Of you
    And high they fly like burst balloons
    Running to the moon
    For an airless rest
    With you

    I'll slip on the deck of the fishing trawler
    Wearing comical yellow
    There's fishtails going off like mousetraps
    Nets so many holes yet prisons
    Me just in it simply for
    The water

    The faces of mountains
    Cut with white blood
    Stampeding stallions of foam
    For you
    To hoof shaped pools
    The sparkle of imaginary jewels

    That the magician that the
    Sun is creates
