Lie with me now
Under lemon tree skies
Show me the shy, slow smile you keep hidden by warm brown eyes
Catch the sweet hover of lips just barely apart
And wonder at loves sweet ache
And the wild beat of my heart
Oh, rhapsody tearing me apart
And I dreamed I was saying goodbye to my child
She was taking a last look at the sea
Wading through dreams, up to our knees in warm ocean swells
While bathing belles, soft beneath
Hard bitten shells punch their iPhones
Erasing the numbers of radon done lovers
And search the horizon
And you’ll find my child
Down by the shore
Digging a mound for a chain or a bone
Searching the sand for a relic washed up by the sea
The last refugee
Roger Waters has shared a music video for “The Last Refugee,” the third single from his upcoming album, Is This The Life We Really Want? Watch it above, courtesy of Roger’s YouTube.
The track begins with radio commentary from the BBC before gentle drums, bass, and piano set a relaxed vibe. The accompanying video shows two women elegantly dancing, then shifts in mood to show one of them reflecting on childhood.
Is This The Life We Really Want? is scheduled to be released on June 2, 2017. Pick it up on Amazon.
Roger will be heading out on a North American tour beginning in late May. For more, check out the Roger Waters Zumic artist page.
