White Tiles

For Wesley

Once upon a time
In a bar down in Brazil
We sat and talked all night
Our ghosts are talking still
I talked about the women
You talked about the men
I think you knew already
We’d never talk like this again

Once upon a time
Once upon a time

In Soho there’s a kitchen
With names upon the walls
A new white tile is added
For every one who falls
I’d like to make a journey
Perhaps one day I will
And hang your tile in the corner
Of that bar down in Brazil

Once upon a time
Once upon a time
