What I Learned Sundays – Tower Records

Just before our love got lost you said
“I am as constant as a northern star”
And I said “Constantly in the darkness
Where’s that at?
If you want me I’ll be in the bar”

Oh Canada
With your face sketched on it twice
Oh you’re in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet Continue reading

[Noname Gypsy:]
Who are you to tell me
I’m not warm enough for summertime?
I know that I can decide myself
But you don’t know me like the sun you’ve never seen my horizon

[Noname Gypsy:]
