Simple Twist of Fate Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark
Tingle to his bones
'Twas then he felt alone
And wished that he'd gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate
Verse 2
They walked along by the old canal
A little confused, I remember well
And stopped into a strange hotel
With a neon burnin' bright
He felt the heat of the night
Hit him like a freight train
Moving with a simple twist of fate
Verse 3
A saxophone someplace far-off played
As she was walkin' by the arcade
She heard the melody raising and fade
The sun was coming up
She dropped a coin into the cup
Of a blind man at the gate
And forgot about a simple twist of fate
Verse 4
He woke up, she was gone
He didn't see nothing but the dawn
He got up of bed and put his clothes back on
Pushed back the blinds
Found a note she left behind
To which he just could not relate
All about a simple twist of fate
Verse 5
He hears the ticking of the clocks
And walks along trough the city blocks
Hunts her down by the waterfront docks
Where the sailors all roll in
Maybe he'll spot her once again
How long must he wait?
One more time for a simple twist of fate
Verse 6
People tell me it's a crime
To know too much for too long of a time
She should have caught me at my prime
She would have stayed with me
Instead of going off to sea
And leaving me
To meditate
Upon that simple twist of fate
