Lyrics

If I were a dead man you'd be the outline
if I were an outlaw you'd be my moonshine
Everything I needed, love, fit in a bottle
Now my heart is restless and my mind is troubled

Born on a bad day into a barfight
Matador, matador, God damn your red light
When I look at you now all I can see is
Everything I ever knew lying in pieces

So let's promenade, allemande
Diamond on your left hand
If you only knew me love
when I was a young man

You are a ghost car so sound the siren
Send me a postcard across the ocean
freightliner, frightliner, our love is history
give me wings to fly and I'd be there already

Now I'm just a beggar will you smile upon me
I stand here a guilty man, show me some mercy
If I had a dollar would you treat me badly?
If I had a hundred more would you love me madly?

Come on, promenade, allemande
Diamond on your left hand
If you only knew me love
when I was a young man

Promenade, allemande
Diamond on your left hand
If you only knew me love
when I was a young man
