Lyrics:

Oh Crown of Light, oh Darkened One
I never thought we’d meet
You kiss my lips, and then it’s done:
And I’m back on Boogie Street

A sip of wine, a cigarette
And then it’s time to go
I tidied up the kitchenette;
I tuned the old banjo
I’m wanted at the traffic-jam
They’re saving me a seat
I’m what I am, and what I am
Is back on Boogie Street

And oh my love, I still recall
The pleasures that we knew;
The rivers and the waterfall
Wherein I bathed with you
Bewildered by your beauty there
I’d kneel to dry your feet
By such instructions you prepare
A man for Boogie Street

Oh Crown of Light, oh Darkened One
I never thought we’d meet
You kiss my lips, and then it’s done:
I’m back on Boogie Street

So come, my friends, be not afraid
We are so lightly here
It is in love that we are made;
In love we disappear
Tho’ all the maps of blood and flesh
Are posted on the door
There’s no one who has told us yet
What Boogie Street is for

Oh Crown of Light, oh Darkened One
I never thought we’d meet
You kiss my lips, and then it’s done:
I’m back on Boogie Street

A sip of wine, a cigarette
And then it’s time to go
I tidied up the kitchenette;
I tuned the old banjo
I’m wanted at the traffic-jam
They’re saving me a seat
I’m what I am, and what I am
Is back on Boogie Street

  1. O crown of light, o darkened one
    I never thought we'd meet
    You kiss my lips, and then it's done
    I'm back on boogie street

    A sip of wine, a cigarette
    And then it's time to go
    I tidied up the kitchenette
    I tuned the old banjo
    I'm wanted at the traffic jam
    They're saving me a seat
    I'm what I am, and what I am
    Is back on boogie street

    And o my love, I still recall
    The pleasures that we knew
    The rivers and the waterfall
    Wherein I bathed with you
    Bewildered by your beauty there
    I'd kneel to dry your feet
    By such instructions you prepare
    A man for boogie street

    O crown of light, o darkened one?

    So come, my friends, be not afraid
    We are so lightly here
    It is in love that we are made
    In love we disappear
    Tho' all the maps of blood and flesh
    Are posted on the door
    There's no one who has told us yet
    What boogie street is for

    O crown of light, o darkened one
    I never thought we'd meet
    You kiss my lips, and then it's done
    I'm back on boogie street

    A sip of wine, a cigarette
    And then it's time to go

  2. When someone seeking the true meaning of Boogie Street comes to me with the question, I say "Though all the maps of blood and fresh are posted on the door, there's no one who has told us yet what Boogie Street is for."
