RECOLLECTIONS
by Doug Baltz

I WAS A PIRATE, YOU WERE A QUEEN
TIS TRUE MY LOVE, IT WASN'T A DREAM
WE LIVED AND LOVED, IN MEADOWS OF GREEN
A ROMANCE OF FIRE, FLAMES HOT BUT UNSEEN

I WAS IN REFUGE, AS YOU WERE TOO
FROM LOVERS AND FRIENDS, WHO'D PROVEN UNTRUE
YOU WERE UNCERTAIN AND WARY OF MY CHARM
DIDN'T REALLY KNOW ME, FEARED GETTING HARMED

WE DANCED AND WE SANG BY THE SUN AND THE MOON
UNTIL WE WERE ONE, IN RHYME AND IN TUNE
IN GREEN FOREST GLADES, OUR LIPS WOULD SPARK
MAKING SWEET LOVE, TILL LONG AFTER DARK

YOU GAVE UP YOUR KINGDOM, I, MY OUTLAW LIFE
TO LIVE IN THE SUNSET, AWAY FROM THE STRIFE
HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS TALE TO BE TRUE
YOUR NAME WAS BURGUNDY, I WAS CALLED BLUE
