Brazil You Never Know Lyrics


Yesterday morning upon my waking Inside my pocket, I found a calling card It said in cursive "Meta-detective" And had a number I didn't recognize It rang all morning and in the evening I heard an answer. It sounded like a sigh. It was a woman on the receiver (she was a breather) I said i'd see her because you never know She said she'd meet me under the marquee Of a theater that was abandoned She ran up to me and leaned in closely Whispering softly, she told me how I would die She spoke in cipher and coy conundrums Her hair was like lightning and smelled like thunder Ending our rendez-vous, she said "Rappelea-vous?" And with a pirouette, she disappeared and I said, "You never know" I'll let you be my eyes if we fly I'll let you be my eyes because I'm blind The rain flies into out mouths while our heads fly into the clouds Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
