Toledo

Toledo

All through the night you telephoned 

I saw the light blinking red 

Beside the cradle

But you don't know how far I've gone 

Now I must live with the lie 

That I made

But if I call, I know I won't have to say it 

You'll hear my voice - something is bound to betray it

But do people living in Toledo 

Know that their name hasn't travelled very well? 

And does anybody in Ohio 

Dream of that Spanish citadel? 

But it's no use saying that I love you 

And how that girl really didn't mean a thing to me 

For if anyone should look into your eyes 

It's not forgiveness that they're gonna see

You hear her voice - "How could you do that?" 

You hear her voice - "How could you do that?"

So I walked outside in the bright 

Sunshine and lovers pass by 

Smiling and joking 

But they don't know the fool I was 

Why should they care what was lost 

What was broken?

But if I call, I know I won't have to say it 

You'll hear my voice - something is bound to betray it

But do people living in Toledo 

Know that their name hasn't travelled very well? 

And does anybody in Ohio 

Dream of that Spanish citadel?

But it's no use saying that I love you 

And how that girl really didn't mean a thing to me 

For if anyone should look into your eyes 

It's not forgiveness that they're gonna see

But do people living in Toledo

Know that their name hasn't travelled very well?

And does anybody in Ohio 

Dream of that Spanish citadel? 

But we still have Florence, Alabama 

We don't have Paris, and we don't have Rome
