Affair on eighty avenue  Gordon Lightfoot

[Em]                     [D]              [Am] [Bm] [C] [D]The perfume that she wore was from some little store on the down side of
town.
[Em]But it lingered o[D]n long [Am]after she’d g[Bm]one,  I r[C]emember it [D]well.
And our [G]fingers e[D]ntwined like r[C]ibbons of l[D]ight,
[G]And we came through a [Em]doorway some[Am]where in the [F]night.[D]
Her long flowing hair came softly undone in a pile all around.
And she brushed it down as I stood by her side in the warmth of her love.
And she showed me her treasures of paper and tin,
And we played a game only she could win.
And she told me a riddle I’ll never forget
And left with the answer I’ve never found yet.
“How long,” said she, “Can a moment like this belong to someone?”
“What’s wrong, what is right? For to live or to die,”
“We all must be born.”
So, if you should ask me what secrets I hide,
I’m only your lover, don’t make me decide!
The perfume she wore was from some little store on the down side of town.
But it lingered on long after she’d gone, I remember it well.
And she showed me her treasures of paper and tin,
And we played a game only she could win.
ANd our fingers entwined like ribbons of light
And we came through a doorway somewhere in the night.
