Church in the mirror

from by Ro Halfhide



We recorded the piano and harmonica at Otto's place (Lucky Fonz III)


I went into a street and I saw a bar there
I walked up to the gate and I walked inside
And as I looked around, I saw your eyes were shining
And immediately I walked up inside

I noticed you across the bar looking
I thought that you was with another man
But as I wondered, I saw the other people turn grey
And I knew that I was there with a plan

As I looked up to your eyes for an answer
And I know that my heart is still green
But as I wondered, I heard the churchbells ringing
And I knew that it was my kind of day

Well some people asked, the song that you are singing
How many times have you been sung that tune
I remember it so well that I was learning it
I was learning it from someone like you

Well is there one little secret you should tell me
One key that can alter the clue
I told the girl there's just another person out there
Someone like me and you

I remember the town in the pictures
I remember how the door would open up
With the church... reflecting in its mirror
And I knew that I was up for love
