On A Rooftop

I stand on a rooftop
and look over Lisbon
A guitarist next to me plays
The Beatles’ song ‘Yesterday’

And it’s so easy now to fly out
to follow the stream of my thoughts,
the wind of my desires
and to seek you everywhere
in every corner, on every cloud
to even look across the ocean
For there are Sirens by the river
that try to entice me to fly farther
But I know in the end I will hit
my head against a cliff

Somewhere down there
I hear the sound of church bells
that reminds me
to keep my feet on the ground,
my energy at home
To look for sacredness within
As the holy grail of our love
My key to you lies inside my heart

And then around me
the wind may blow
the Sirens may call
Yesterday may pull
Memories may shout
But I’ve found my ground
on a rooftop, in the eye of love
