Grand Canal

From the Grand Canal through the birth canal
Life is a river that flows
Between golden spaces and dark lonely places
That everyone was born to know.
So how is it – now, when I find you here
And we fall into each other’s arms
I can’t tell if it’s a caress and a kiss
Or a blow that goes straight to my heart?

Is the time so wrong?
Is the current so strong?
That no one can hold you now

You’re making a brilliant pass tonight
As you flow into my line of sight
You waltz across this bridge of sighs
Free-falling into the light
You catch my eye I find you there
And struggle to untie these knots
Like good sailor ropes they hold tight and fast
So here are some “forget-me-nots”

Is the time so wrong?
Is the rope so strong?
That no one can you now

When were you born? Who is your mother?
If I wait long enough, will she show?
Now that you are free, will your heart remain true?
There’s so many who count on you
Mona Lisa smiles vaguely and Venus wears blue jeans
The holy, gray river just flows
And carries us back from Venice to Benares
And on, and on, it goes

Is the time so wrong?
Is the current so strong?
No one can hold you now .

From the Grand Canal  through the birth canal
Life is a river that flows
Between golden spaces and dark lonely places
That everyone was born to know.
So how come – now When I find you here
In this city of a thousand charms
I can’t tell if it’s a caress and a kiss
Or a blow that goes straight to my heart?

Is the time so wrong?
Is the current so strong?
No one can hold you …
