Lyrics
You met me one night in the city
And you looked at me so cold
You said you thought my heart was fleeting
You seemed quite certain I would go

You say you don't believe in magic
And that it's magic I uphold
But in your way you know it's tragic
That you yourself could not be more bold

(Chorus)

And in the wind the sand just blows away
We spin around and 'round until we get back home
I don't want you to go away
Don't leave me here, here alone

I built my house with straw and mortar
Just like the walls of Jericho
And when the lamb was found to slaughter
I cut the vine and let it go

Oh God there's only one connection
Between you and me, you know
It's not your laws or your perfection
It's just my need for you to show

(Chorus)

Everything behind us all just blows away
We spin around and `round until we get back home
I don't want you to go away
Don't leave me here, here alone
