Tom Verlaine — Ancient Egypt lyrics

(Verlaine)
The minute I lay my head on the pillow
I'm in ancient Egypt, I can feel it glow,
Warm and gold,
Gold and warm.
And I'll see you there all dressed in raindrops,
Need I explain? I don't think so, Pops,
Warm and gold,
Gold and warm.
I've been working,
I've been chopping wood,
And this makes me a hungry man.
And every time I
Look up in my dream,
I feel the touch of your sweet hand.
I sit here now and watch you rub your leg,
You tell me baby, that's just ok,
ok, ok,
ok
And I like to watch that ripple effect,
As long as there is no shipwreck,
Yes I do,
Oh, yes I do.
I've been working,
I've been chopping wood,
And this makes me a hungry man.
And every time I
Look up in my dream,
I feel the touch of your sweet hand.
Yes, I used to have one or two reservations,
So what?
Well, so what?
It's a likely story, it's not hard to tell,
Maybe you and I will be in for a spell,
In and out,
Out and in.
I've been working,
I've been chopping wood,
And this makes me a hungry man.
And every time I
Look up in my dream,
I feel the touch of your sweet hand.
Yeah, I've been working,
I've been chopping wood,
And this makes me a hungry man.
And every time I
Look up in my dream,
I feel the touch of your sweet hand.
