lyrics

The Gare St Lazare ©Laforge/Randall

I’ll be waiting for you at the Gare St Lazare
A quarter past 1 near the morning star
I’ll be the girl with the diamond eyes
Holding a script where I’ve written no part
In the landscape of green and golden guitars
I’ve made you a hero and crowned you king

It is a different city as of yesterday
Now that you know my name
I want you to say it again and again
A lifetime of thinking of convenient things
Is it love love love no surprise?
I am unsure of the look in your eyes

Tell me what it means
To play, sing and laugh and cry
Doing nothing together
Has become the best of times

Liquid and fire and the passing of time
Shared secrets go from your hand to mine
If I open myself and show the inside
If I hold back my fear and swallow my pride
Show me your heartbreak
And maybe I’ll show you mine


I’ll tell you what it means
To play, sing and laugh and cry
Doing nothing together
Has become the best of times

I say just hold me in your arms
You tell me to be a big girl now
This rock and roll girl to your rising sun
Trying to tease you into coming undone
I’ve made you a memory
Is it a permanent one?

Imagine Natalie Merchant wandering into Villa Nellcote when the Stones were recording Exile on Main Street and here you will find that same sort of seductive allure of punchy guitar and wounded lyrics. The EP was recorded at Studio Black Box with Peter Deimel ... more
