Once I awoke
The shadow of your smile had crossed my mind
How could I know this was your last goodbye
That's slipping through the windmills of the night

You never understand when she's talking to you,
Little boy
You never understand when she's talking to you
She's too far away

Is it heaven or hell
We're drifting in the wake of our dreams
And the world is a clown who cries
And no one can tell is it real
Once I cried

Whenever I awoke without you
A stranger in the thunder of the dark
I'm praying to the sun to shine tonite
You never understand when she's talking to you,

Mon amour
You never understand when she's talking to you
She's too far away...

    General CommentI once had the opportunity to be entertained and educated by some strange angels and this song was part of the cheap and corny play they put on.
    Just because we’re on a budget, you need not cast aspersions on the producers—the content was pure gold.
    True. Sorry.
    Pete woke up—having been visited by Ariana who came and went and came and went and came and … went. And you never understood her, Pete. She was too far away.
    I understood her fine. It was you I had trouble with but I’ll agree—she was too far away.
    So we were doing heaven and hell and Ariana was playing the little earth who was charmingly silly and hauntingly sad.
    And you were stuck to her and you were playing the clown.
    And no one could tell if it was real ….
    It seemed real enough to me.
    Me too.
    No one else could tell though …
    I love your line … you never understand when she’s talking to you, mon amour. It’s uncharacteristically sweet of you—something I rarely saw in your exchanges with Pete …
