I've tasted your bitterness

I've tasted your wine

You multiflavored personality

Jumps into mine


You've been my enemy

You've turned me loose

And when I try to run away

You still seduce


And it's one of those nights in the city

When you're dangerous, distant, cunning and cold

Yes it's one of those nights in the city

Where you're just like a woman

Just like the woman

I'd long to hold


You never smile at me

There'd be no point

You dance around and flirt with sparkling eyes

That don't disappoint

You'd save my sanity

If you had the choice

Then you'd whisper soft banalities

Without a voice




You're bitter in summer

Dusty in fall

Quiet in springtime

But best when you're nothing at all


I'll never love you

In ways I'd admit

I tried it on a long, long time ago

It didn't fit
