I saw you standing there,
Monobrow, long black hair,
Dance like Frida Kahlo,
Your dance was so alone, so alone,
When you shook your hips,
The fire climbed up your spine,
and spread into your hair.

For as far as I can see,
We were carved from the same tree,
Two lonely refugees,
Trying hard just to get home.

One husband and one wife,
A place to hang one's life,
Two kids to help us grow,
In space we're not alone.

For walls, one lid, one home,
A box to call our own,
Some stuff to fill the place,
Five bins to remove the waste.

For as far as I can see,
We were carved from the same tree,
Two lonely refugees,
Trying hard just to get home.

For as far as I can tell,
We were drawn from the same well,
The same visions the same dreams,
Hoping for ecstasy.

Set a mattress on the floor,
Put Chubb locks on the door,
Velvet curtains, dimmer lights,
Wooden floors and walls of white.

Log on the fire, paintings on the walls,
Prints of stars, and waterfalls,
Brand new set of global knives,
Photos of friends and family life.

For as far as I can see,
We were carved from the same tree,
Two lonely refugees,
Trying hard just to get home.

For as far as I can tell,
We were rung from the same bell,
Mix of minor major chords,
Full of hopes and human flaws.

Your dance was so alone, so alone,
And when you shook your hips,
The fire climbed up your spine,
And spread into your hair.

The fire climbed up your spine,
And spread into your hair.

The fire climbed up your spine,
And spread into your hair.
