The missing

Your skirt is too short
I imagine drawings on it,
I imagine the coming years on it,
The turmoil which is going to disfigure you
Your skirt is too short
I can't no more
I can't imagine no more
 
You are walking too fast
I imagine camels in the middle of the desert,
Dieing of thirst, it's summer, winter
You are walking too fast
I can't imagine no more
 
People are looking at you
I wish I could shove them down your throat
And you'd throw them back up smelling jasmine
Like the one who is pointing his finger at you
And makes me feel sick
People are looking at you
I can't no more
I can't imagine no more
 
Your skirt is too short
You are walking too fast
People are looking at me
They are looking at me as I imagine you
 
There is something missing
There is something missing
To this obscene city
And it's you I miss
And it's you I miss
 
Your skirt is too short
I'd gladly climb on top of you
New York this morning had nothing left but you
Your skirt is too long
And I imagine And I imagine
And I imagine some ponds
 
You're swimming too fast
I see perfumes, I sense your tiredness
I die of you, I die of myself
You're swimming too fast
I can't do anything else
but to imagine
 
People are queueing up
For anything, For your sour smell
You'd give them your unripe blackberries
You are walking too fast
Give me the hand, hold me over your map
Look over there at the red sign
"Living forbidden"
Cops are looking at us
 
There is something missing
In Amsterdam tonight
And that's you my love,
You who runs in my veins
I've lost you
I've lost you
And I miss you
 
I can't imagine you no more
You, the hero
You, the hero of my love novel
 
All of my work is dedicated to Ms Z. G., who is the real counterpart of Beatrice Portinari for me.
