Antigua

by Lyle & Murray

Hot-blooded murder ballad, set to uptempo Caribbean cadences; think of the uholy triangle of Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer and Marty Robbins meeting in the deep waters of Antigua where time means nothing and blood flows like wine.

Antigua

I met a restless angel down in Antigua
I was a total stranger running from the law
She put her trust in who she thought I should have been
Such reckless gestures are but written in the wind

I killed a man whose hand had taken what was mine
This kind of thing it always happens all the time
But those who care could never play the violin
Such reckless gestures are but written in the wind

The times we had resembled movies we had seen
We could not wait until we played another scene
All we could want had been provided for our sin
Such reckless gestures are but written in the wind

The shifting sands began to fail beneath our feet
The torrid love we had was lying in the street
She met a man she knew was who I should have been
Such reckless gestures are but written in the wind

My living blood ran cold to see them as they were
Two strangers lost inside of what they were not sure
All they could want had been provided for their sin
Such gestures are but written in the wind
