(Lyrics for a new song – Watch out for “Romeo’s Railroad Remembered”)
Help me now I’m homeward bound
with the Jack of hearts and a jealous clown,
That old New York skyline telling lies.
Murders with milkman eyes
therapists who analyse
everything from a stray cat to a toe.
I’m going down and they follow
to the temples of Apollo
where tramps and gypsies live on desolations mile.
And on Romeo’s railroad, everyone is dreaming.
Daffodils at the Moulin Rouge
St Ives sand in my shoes
St Valentine’s angel writing love songs.
Lennon opening the gate
to a revolution that came too late
selling all our dreams at a reduced price.
Old Compton street pouring rain
the Soho sun called my name
the queen of diamonds umbrella was leaking.
I heard the ‘Sell out’ engine start
as the Judas jukebox broke our hearts
leaving clones and bones and drunken Angels weeping.
