a love story about life
Heatwaves on the runwayAs the wheels set downHe takes his baggage off the carouselHe takes a taxi into townYellow schools of taxi fishesJonah in a ticking whaleCaught up at the light in the fishnet windowsOf Bloomingdale'sWatching those high fashion girlsSkinny black models with Raveen curlsBeauty parlor blondes with credit card eyesLooking for the chic and the fancyTo buyHe opens up his suitcaseIn the continental suiteAnd people twenty stories downColored currents in the streetA helicopter lands on the Pan Am roofLike a dragonfly on a tombAnd business men in button downsPress into conference roomsBattalions of paper-minded malesTalking commodities and salesWhile at home their paper wivesAnd paper kidsPaper the walls to keep their gut reactions hidYellow checkers for the kitchenClimbing ivy for the bathShe is lost in House and GardensHe's caught up in Chief of StaffHe drifts off into the memoryOf the way she looked in schoolWith her body oiled and shiningAt the public swimming pool ...* * *The more I'm with you, pretty babyThe more I feel my love increaseI'm building all my dreams around youOur happiness will never cease'Cause nothing's any good without youBaby you're my centerpieceWe'll find a house and garden somewhereAlong a country road a pieceA little cottage on the outskirtsWhere we can really find release'Cause nothing's any good without youBaby you're my centerpiece* * *...Shining hair and shining skinShining as she reeled him inTo tell him like she did todayJust what he could do with Harry's HouseAnd Harry's take home pay -Joni
