I saw you at the opening, you were the talk of the town.
You were dressed in designer clothes, so carefully torn
It was like a spy movie, you were hamming it up.
Always up with the latest trend, you left the old ones behind.
But I remember you fearless, like a highwire act,
You could stop the band playing and just talk for a while
You have houses and hotels, and people to meet,
You have bashes and meetings, and ribbons to cut
And your new friends are strangers you are so happy to know
But I remember you played the violin, and the jacket you lost
In a hotel in Antwerp where I first heard your name
And I remember how it felt when my heart stopped beating,
Yes, I remember how it felt when my heart stopped beating
But you left it in a bar under the waves
Yes you left it in a bar under the waves
