Allan Taylor - Like I Used to Do



Does he call you through the darkness from a thousand miles away
Through those sleepless nights of waiting 'til the night rolls into day
Does he tell you how his colours are fading into grey
When he's too far in the distance, too long and far away

And when he comes home from the travelling can you see it in his eyes
How he's burning from the heat of a thousand hidden fires
And does he take you in a moment 'til you know your spirit flies
And sing you through the moonlight 'til the sun is on the rise

Does he come to you in dreams that travel through the times
Bringing back the memories in melodies and rhymes
Can he do this for you, like I used to do
Can he do this for you, like I used to do

Does he bring you spices from the Orient for sweet fragrance in the night
And a jewel from darkest Africa to sparkle in the light
Perfumed waters from the islands to make your body smell so fine
From the sweet Frangipani and the flowering Columbine

Does he come to you in dreams that travel through the times
Bringing back the memories in melodies and rhymes
Can he do this for you, like I used to do
Can he do this for you, like I used to do

Does he come to you in dreams that travel through the times
Bringing back the memories in melodies and rhymes
Can he do this for you, like I used to do
Can he do this for you, like I used to do
