Sometimes I find I drift away
Light years ago I think someone spoke
She drew the curtains at the end of the day
Fancy glitter in the summer arcades
Piano echoes and the perfume still lingers
With a distant smile
A distant smile
Adrift in other times with a distant smile
The city's glittering like diamonds in heat
As the cameraman pans away
Private oceans you can surface a sunrise in
But nevertheless still permanently surprised
A distant smile
Somehow I always seem to be
You will see (?)
