BORNE ON THE BREEZE
Harvey Andrews

Catch a train to a plane to a place overseas,
Over clouds, over fields, over rivers and trees,
And they're serving me coffee to put me at ease,
But I'm drifting without you,
Borne on the breeze from my home.

See the sights, see the lights as they shine on the Seine.
Eiffel Tower stands so tall that it's lost in the rain.
Tour the town with a friend and try not to explain
How I'm drifting without you,
Borne on the breeze from my home.

A cold empty room and a bottle of wine.
It's too early to sleep but it's too late to dine,
So I'll sit and I'll write that the weather is fine
And that Aznavour signed you a picture.

I met stars; I rode cars down the Champs Elysees.
Let time pass through a glass at a pavement café.
Though I smile all the while, I'm just hiding the way
That I'm drifting without you,
Borne on the breeze from my home.

The day ends with my friends giving numbers to ring.
I shake hands and make plans to return in the spring,
And I promise you'll come so I won't have to sing
How I'm drifting without you,
Borne on the breeze from my home.
