In The Twilight

He had the Soul of a soldier for hire
but his pay was never so good
all day he sat on the corner, with nothing to do
his heart was cursed by desire
and in that havana square she stood
the sun grew a little warmer, shed its golden rays on you

My mind went all a blank,
and there was no rum to be had
as she crossed over, with a beckoning hand
She offered me a drink
when i needed it so bad
She said take me while I'm loaded, or don’t you understand?

She worked her way under my skin, that woman
I was livin’ under the golden light of sin
Swallowed me whole, and scattered my soul
She will follow me down, to the end

In those days,
she called me sweet daddy
drinking in the twilight, (making love) in the suffocating heat
In that carribean way
I wallowed in her flesh for day
We kept our heads above water, just enough to breathe


One summer night, I felt a pain in my head
six hours later, she wasn't in my bed
I’ve been working on the streets waiting for our eyes to cross
everything now that i once had is lost

its been five long years
she ain’t called me at all
must’ve gone of with some rich sailor, in the lap of luxury
But i’ve drank away the tears
and my old wounds have turned to scars
now everything just seems the same to me
