right as it feels nowSaturday 30 May 2009
If I only could deceive you
Forgetting the game
Every time I try to leave you
You laugh just the same

'Cause my wheels never touch the road
And the jumble of lies we told
Just returns to my back to weight me down…

We lay cards upon the table,
The backs of our hands
And I swear I like your people -
The boys in the band.

Reminiscences gone astray
Coming back to enjoy the fray
In a tangle of night and daylight sounds…

All completeness in the morning
Asleep on your side.
I'll be waking up the crewmen
Banana-boat ride.

She responds like a limousine
Brought alive on the silent screen
To the shuddering breath of yesterday…

There's the succour of the needy
Incredible scenes.
I'll believe you in the future
Your life and death dreams

As the cavalry of despair
Takes a stand in the lady's hair
For the favour of making sweet sixteen…

You make my life and times
A book of bluesy Saturdays
And I have to choose…

King Crimson - Book of Saturday
