Don’t you try boy, you’ll get twisted / Don’t you ask when you already know / Cause the light comes slowly in New Orleans through orange blossom blinds / And the way they grow them trees in the Bayou can tangle up the mind / So Don’t you hide boy, your eyes betray you / And don’t you shy, when you know your part / Cause when strangers hold your hand down on Frenchman in the love of nights return / You can bet there’s a line of heron flying west with a sprig of juniper / And when green circled leaves on white sheets are the table for your feast / You can taste gifted wine from the bottle to my lips past your knees / Oh were drunk, in a lilac field / Can’t make out whats dream and whats real / And in that crack, yeah that shift / Oh the twilight, the slip / That’s exactly where I want to be / Me holding you and you holding me
