Around the World

Around the World

 

I don’t have to travel across the world,

 

There is a labyrinth within my mind,

 

Nor do the diamonds of Africa,

 

Call me to seek and find,

 

I don’t need the ice of Siberia,

 

To compare the iciness of your heart,

 

I only know what we’ve been through,

 

And it’s time for us to part,

 

Don’t shed crocodile tears for me, my dear,

 

Until the Nile runs dry,

 

You never loved me anyway,

 

So there’s no need to cry,

 

On the top of the Aztec ruins,

 

My love was sacrificed today,

 

A Black Forest cuckoo will chime again,

 

If I listen to what you say,

 

Mt Whitney might be a place for me,

 

Where love might choose to play,

 

But now that I’ve lost your love,

 

It’s Death Valley for me today.
