I’ll tell you what
You mean to me

I can’t think straight
Why am I doing this?
Have I traveled to a world unseen?
Have I found the wisdom tree?

I see you
Dancing in twilight
Behind three veils
With an Indian cowboy

You drink American Chai
Carried by the wings of hope
Trapped in a pocket full of dreams

That’s the trouble with Romance
It always leads you back
To your first fear

You linger in the reign of doubt
You cannot commit
You hang out out a sign
Saying ” Yes We’re Open”

At least you’ve given up
Looking for comedy
In the Muslim world!
