Love at the Harbourfront

.

.

like Paris on a summer’s eve
your shadow will be
painted with a softened glow
but oh, no, no
no glass will we need
.
I sailed in, lost
weaving the harbour
watching the docks
and floating along
.
I knew I was late
but such was the ardour
rushing the clocks
boating along
.
“I don’t need this
maybe it’d be good
I can’t see this
it’s not as it should”
.
like Paris on a summer’s eve
your shadow will be
painted with a softened glow
but oh, no, no
[repeat 4 lines of chorus]
no glass will we need
.
as wholesome as oats
I was filled with wonder
along by the boats
you threw me a line
.
I thought I was grasping
emerging from under
but what I was clasping
was stronger than twine
.
and all the time
“maybe it’d be good
I can’t see it
being as it should”
.
like Paris on a summer’s eve
your shadow will be
painted with a softened glow
but oh, no, no
[repeat 4 lines of chorus]
no glass will we need
I see it quite clearly
where I want to be
I never saw nearly
so throw out the “should”
and throw out the maybe
it’s perfectly good
it’s perfectly good
.
like Paris on a summer’s eve
your shadow will be
painted with a softened glow
but oh, no, no
[repeat 4 lines of chorus]
no glass will we need
twisted in twine
it’s perfectly fine, without
.
