Lourdes is heavy and so am I,
laden with lost opportunity.
Pret is ready to sing the blues,
but I am lingering in Toulouse.
Heaven can wait with the SNCF,
I am out for the evening news.O what joy
it is to walk
upon the earth
by the waterside
To be with the living
and with all things alive
To be able to fly and have life.

Toulouse, FranceSeptember 1986
