lyrics

Who would have thought that twenty years later
You could still have a hold on me
You opened your arms and took me in gladly
There was no place that I’d rather be

In an old rundown house your sunlight hit the corners
Unaccustomed to your charms previously
I would spend half the day barefoot on the pavement
With a joy I could scarcely believe

Do your streets look the same?
Does your heart call my name?
Will you wait till I come back again?
We’ll pick up what we had
It might make us feel sad
But we’ll pretend it’s the start of the affair
We’ll pretend it’s the start of the affair

In the hills to the west we sang your songs nightly
Just waiting to get back to you
I was happy to be in the company of strangers
Peter, Rachel, Jo, Ben, Gills and Lu

So I’ll get on that plane and pack my bags lightly
I won’t need much in your company
And we’ll watch the waves break upon the whitest beaches
From the shade of acacia trees

Do your streets look the same?
Does your heart call my name?
Will you wait till I come back again?
We’ll pick up what we had
It might make us feel sad
But we’ll pretend it’s the start of the affair
