Cleopatra Songtext
von The Lumineers

Cleopatra Songtext

I was Cleopatra
I was young and an actress
And you knelt by my matress
And asked for my hand
And I was sad you asked it
As I laid in a black dress
With my father in a casket
I had no plans
(Yea)
And I left the footprints
The mud stained on the carpet
And it hardened like my heart did
When you left town
But I must admit it
That I would marry you in an instant
Damn your wife, I′d be your mistress
Just to have you around
But I was late for this
Late for that
Late for the love of my life


When I die alone
When I die alone
When I die I'll be on time
(Aye)
And the Church discouraged
Any lust that burned within me
Yes my flesh it was my currency
But I held out
When a man′s dejected
Well he can fight for your affections
Or he can act like he never met you
And even go to the ground
But I was late for this
Late for that
Late for the love of my life
And when I die alone
When I die alone
When I die I'll be on time
(Yea)
So I drive a taxi
And the traffic distracts me
From the strangers in my backseat
They remind me of you
But it's all a daydream
When it′s you who′s behind me
But you never recognize me
Appraising you
And the only gifts from my Lord
Were a birth and a divorce
But I've read this script
And the costume fits
So I play my part

And there are nights I wake up
To the sound of a door shut
And I search on the floor but
I find no tracks
And the nurse in white shoes
Leads me back to my guestroom
It′s a bed and a bathroom
And a place to relax
But I was late for this
Late for that
Late for the love of my life
When I die alone
When I die alone
When I die I'll be on time
(Aye)
