Longing For Lisbon

In my mind I wander in the streets
of Lisbon
Restauradores, Rossio, Baixa and Chiado
the river Tagus, the cathedral
Alfama, Mouraria and the castle
I smell the salty sea, the sardines
I hear the bitter sweet tunes of fado
and saudade takes over my heart
And I wander further through stories
I once shared here with you
through all the laughter and tears
And then my longing for Lisbon
is just my longing for you
