I went to Rome
on a search for the Pharaoh's gold.
The locals told me I'd need to find a blind man with no soul.
So I rented a boat and I sailed to the cove
- where the lovers go, where the lovers go -
and I took away from the mouth of the cave
- like I was just 13, like I was just 13 -
but instead of unearthing a haunted beast
I found the dull glow of blond coins.

Was it treasure? Or was it trouble?

I turned and saw a girl who wore the moon at her back.
Her brother remarked on how unassuming I seemed,
then he pulled a knife, he pulled a knife,
he pulled a knife he said she ain't my sister she is my wife!
I faltered momentarily and my gaze left the gold,
when I turned around you know girl was gone.

She was a treasure, but she was troubled.

When I talked to sister about the mistake with her brother
she informed that from childhood, well, they only had each other.
Seems their mother, oh, she left them only with each other
when she kicked them to the gutter, they went into the gutter.

Treasure is trouble.

I went to Rome.
