Song Lyrics

They sat together in the park

As the evening sky grew dark,

She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones.

`Twas then he felt alone and wished that he`d gone straight

And watched out for a simple twist of fate.

They walked along by the old canal

A little confused, I remember well

And stopped into a strange hotel with a neon burnin` bright.

He felt the heat of the night hit him like a freight train

Moving with a simple twist of fate.

A saxophone someplace far off played

As she was walkin` by the arcade.

As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was wakin` up,

She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate

And forgot about a simple twist of fate.

He woke up, the room was bare

He didn`t see her anywhere.

He told himself he didn`t care, pushed the window open wide,

Felt an emptiness inside to which he just could not relate

Brought on by a simple twist of fate.

He hears the ticking of the clocks

And walks along with a parrot that talks,

Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailors all come in.

Maybe she`ll pick him out again, how long must he wait

One more time for a simple twist of fate.

People tell me it`s a sin

To know and feel too much within.

I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring.

She was born in spring, but I was born too late

Blame it on a simple twist of fate.
