Simple Twist of Fate
The Format

They sat together in the park
as the evening sky grew dark
she looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones
cause then he felt alone

then he felt alone and wished that he'd gone straight
watch out for the simple twist of fate

walked along by the old canal
a little confused
i remember well
stopped into a strange hotel
with neon burning bright
felt the heat of the night
like a freight train
moving with a simple twist of fate

saxophones someplace far off play
she was walking on by the arcade
as the light bust through a beat up shade
where he was waking up
she drops the coin into the cup
of a blind man at the gate
forgot about a simple twist of fate

he woke up
room was bare
he didn't see her anywhere
he told himself he didn't care
whisked the window open wide
felt the emptiness inside
to which he could just not relate
brought on by a simple twist of fate

he hears the ticking of the clocks
and walks along with a parrot that talks
hunts her down by the waterfront docks
where the sailors all come in
maybe she'll pick him out again
how long must he wait
one more time before a simple twist fate

People tell me it's a sin
to know and feel too much within
I still believe she was my twin, but I lost the ring.
she was born in spring, but I was born too late
blame it on a simple twist of fate
