Your Hometown

Your hometown

Bring me to your youthful past

To old memories, hidden desires

Like a hot and luminous fire

Sheds new light upon a familiar home.

Lay me down upon your memories

Gently, as upon a bed of flowers

Let our present love reveal

Every moment’s hidden powers.

And when you will feel tempted

To live only in the past

Twirling softly, cradling gently

Former lovers in your arms,

Let the shower of my kisses

Wake you up from former flings

Let us toast the days we’re missing

Celebrating our new dreams.
