One Word

This song is by Eno/Cale and appears on the album Wrong Way Up (1990).

Nighttime is falling on the Louvre
It's been a lazy afternoon
We walk to the house, the air is clear
The water's still moving in the pool

You say the same
One word, one sound
Thing again
It makes the world go 'round
One word, we fight
You'll see you can't win
We're in a game
The same place but not the same spin
Let it all fade away
If it fades away, I don't mind
We were miles away, we were miles away
We were miles and miles away

Remember this soil by Augustus John?
These are the ones I found in Rome
There are few things I keep for long
When does your plane leave for Cologne?

I recall the train
One word I saw
People danced again
That's all it took to turn them around
One world we're in
Strange world, no sound
We'll find the same thing
The same things are everywhere around
Never mind
Never mind, you'll see
With time we'll dance again
If it all fades away
Let it all fade dancing away

All the sounds I heard on a summer night
One word, I found
And the quiet words we exchanged, I felt
That's all it took to turn him around
She was pulling back to emphasize
She watched, he sighs
I was falling into Mona Lisa's eyes
He waits for a touch of her eyes
And she turned, and she turned
And then she turns away
She was far away
She won't let him touch her any more today
She was miles away
She was miles away
She was so many miles away
