Baptism

I walked there upon your streets

I slept deeply between your sheets

I’ve felt a longing for a home not known

The seed of my love was heartbreak grown

I dream of jellybeans and dangerous hills

Of pastry and coffee and sunshine and thrills

Was it her I fell for, or was it you?

I cannot tell you, I never knew

I missed you from the moment we met

And here I am I long for you yet

Though I cannot desert she who welcomed me first

You’ve woken in me an unquenchable thirst

It hurts me to remember the memories provided

Is there a crueller fate than a heart divided?
