Simple Twist of Fate 2018

Yuzawa, July 29

They sat together in the park
As the evening sky got dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark
Tingle to her bones
It was then she felt alone
And wished she'd gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate

They walked along by the old canal
A little confused I remember well
Stopped into a strange hotel
With a neon-burning sign
She said "Put your hand in mine
Ain't no need to hesitate"
It was all about that simple twist of fate

A saxophone someplace softly played
She was walking on by the archade
She heard the melody rise and fade
The sun was coming up
She dropped the coin into the cup
Of a blind man at the gate
And forgot about that simple twist of fate

He woke up and she was gone
He didn't see nothing but the dawn
Got out of bed and put his shoes back on
(Then he pushed back the blinds)
Found a note she'd left behind
What did it say?, it said "You should have met me back in '58
We could have avoided this little simple twist of fate"

He hears the ticking of the clocks
And he hunts for her through the city blocks
Even down there by the waterfront docks
Where the sailers all roll in
Maybe he'll see her once again
How long must he wait
One more time for a simple twist of fate?

People tell me it's a sin
That it's wrong and wicked, a play that I'm in
I still believe she was my twin
But I went and lost the ring
She was born in spring
I must have been born too late
You can blame it on, blame it on a simple twist of fate



Mantova, April 8

I still believe she was my twin
Such a real and wondrous thing
She was born in spring
I must have been born too late
Blame it on a simple twist of fate

To rem... wheedled in
I still believe she was my twin



Verona, April 27

People tell me it's a sin
(mumbling) veiled within
I still believe she was my twin



Genova, April 25

People tell me it's a sin
It's wrong and wicked
I still believe she was my twin
But I went and lost the ring
She was born in spring
I must have been born too late
Blame it on, blame it on a simple twist of fate

Lisbon, March 22

She felt the heat of the night
Hit her like a freight
Moving down with that simple twist of fate



Salamanca, March 24

They walked along by the old canal
A little confused I remember well
Stopped into a strange hotel
With a neon burning bright
He almost lost his mind
She said "Will you sit by here and wait?
We don't have to go down that simple twist of fate"



Madrid, March 26

With a neon burning bright
She felt the heat of the night
Hit her like a freight
Moving down like a simple twist of fate



Madrid, March 27

With a neon burning bright
She said "Put your hand in mine
We don't have to wait"
It was all about that simple twist of fate



Madrid, March 28

She said "Put your hand in mine
Ain't no need to wait"
It was all about that simple twist of fate



Barcelona, March 30

She said "Put your hand in mine
We don't have to hesitate"
All about that simple twist of fate



Barcelona, March 31

She said "Put your hand in mine
Ain't no reason to hesitate"
It was all about that simple twist of fate



Zürich, April 11

They walked along by the old canal
A little confused I remember well
Stopped into a strange hotel
With a blinking neon sign
She said "Put your hand in mine
Ain't no need to hesitate"
It was all about that simple twist of fate
