Song Meaning
Verse 1
A cigarette that bears a lipsticks traces,
An airline ticket to romantic places,
And still my heart has wings...
These foolish things remind me of you.
Verse 2
A tinkling piano in the next apartment,
Those stumbling words that told you what my heart meant,
A fairgrounds painted swings...
These foolish things remind me of you.
Verse 3
You came, you saw,
You conquered me.
When you did that to me,
I knew somehow this had to be.
Verse 4
The winds of march that made my heart a dancer,
A telephone that rings,
And who's to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings...
These foolish things remind me of you.
Verse 5
The first daffodil and long excited cables,
And candle lights on little corner tables,
And still my heart has wings...
These foolish things remind me of you.
Verse 6
The park at evening when the bell has sounded,
The ile-de-france with all the gulls around it,
The beauty that is springs...
These foolish things remind me of you.
Verse 7
How strange, how sweet
To find you still,
These things are dear to me,
They seem to bring you near to me.
Verse 8
The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations,
Silk stockings tossed aside, dance invitations.
Oh, how the ghost of you clings!
These foolish things remind me of you...
Verse 9
These foolish things remind me of you.
