lyrics

The first time I was late with you we were waiting for a chime
In a tragic medieval square we were having a really nice time
And my friend we were staying with
asked me, "have you been together long?"
Then laughed and said he'd like to see what we are like
later on.

oooo honeymoon with you
oooo Prague honeymoon with you

If that clock could turn backward
I am become ten years old
In my mom's foreign city
trying to do what I am told
she turns to me with a crazy smile and says
not to be such a bore
she puts me on the train and sends me out to explore.

oh love hold me close while I remember
oh love hold me tight while I forget.

With my divorced lover I am staring at statues of saints
"Look, the patron saint of unhappily married women.
She looks like Jesus Christ in a dress.
Are you thinking of your wife?
I am thinking of my mother.
Hold me close while I remember, here, safe with you".
