Green Coat with the Collar Down lyrics

Track 11 from The Other Country

From the high-rises the tall wind speaks
Of hurrying stars and lonely dreams

When will you find me in the winding streets
The angry traffic and the rushing feet

I’ll wear the green coat with the collar down
bright jade buttons in the dark grey crowd

you’re bound to see me if you wait a while
wait on the corner with your winning smile

I have a small flat on the 7th floor
Beside the park, it has a yellow door

We’ll climb the stairs, the lift it never works
We’ll cook fajitas and we’ll hear the birds

circling and calling we won’t need to stir
from the top of this high rise till the evening blurs

Black tea or coffee which do you prefer?

From the high-rises the tall wind speaks
Of hurrying stars and lonely dreams
