lyrics

Helena,
you left your hometown
just as I,
to see yourself In a new light
on the horizon

you’ll be re-built
from pieces of
porcelain
china white
just like your Brazilian skin.

There once were those golden times
now so monochrome
the air is cold
when your friends have flown

I hear those
harmonics in the airwaves
And we still play these
small town games
cement sets in my throat

we exchange our books and prose to save face
I could have told the truth, a little more but we chose to go at our own ways

you’ll be re-built
from pieces of
porcelain
china white
Brazilian skin.

There once were those golden times
now so monochrome
the air is cold
when your friends have flown

I hear those
harmonics in the airwaves
And we still play these
small town games
cement sets in my throat

More golden times await you
past the gates of New Cross Station…
