Patron Saint of Mine

who’s that tapping on your window
way too late at night?
before you grab your gun
won’t you think twice
pull the curtain slowly
reveal night’s valentine
sing oh sweet patron saint of mine

I climb on through sweet midnight’s window
leave the cold behind
and sit down on your bed and drink red wine
observe me from a distance
I’m ugly and genuine

sing oh sweet patron saint of mine

now your boutique is so unique
I’m glad I stopped to browse
the poetry and colors you arouse
upon your neon divan
mild beyond divine

sing oh sweet patron saint of mine
(sing oh sweet patron saint of mine)

now you’ve got a wild philosophy
which you mightjust explain
providing I prove worthy of your time
the trail of tears and sunken hearts gets longer as it winds

sing oh sweet patron saint of mine
(sing oh sweet patron saint of mine)

mind the second pillow in that ancient chest-of-drawers
and romeo so gently to your shores

the radio plays beethoven
the groove is most sublime
sing oh sweet patron saint of mine
(sing oh sweet patron saint of mine)
sing oh sweet patron saint of mine
(sing oh sweet patron saint of mine)
sing oh sweet patron saint of mine
(sing oh sweet patron saint of mine)
sing oh sweet patron saint of mine
(sing oh sweet patron saint of mine)

now tell yourself I’m not the one
and fill me in this time
and read me like a book that changed your mind
a book you kept returening to long after the last line
sing oh sweet patron saint of mine
(sing oh sweet patron saint of mine)
sing oh sweet patron saint of mine
(sing oh sweet patron saint of mine)
