may 1, 1990 lyrics – adrian belew

i lived inside a tear
time magnified my fear
that the world around me
was only getting more severe

on may 1, 1990
something changed inside me
and i saw the stars align
and i knew that it was meant to be

i didn’t know at the time
my heart was on the line
but the world was turning
and suddenly the sun was shining

on may 1, 1990
something changed inside me
and i saw the stars align
and i knew that it was meant to be

in a city by the sun

maybe when you saw me then
you thought i had the world at my feet
maybe when you looked again
you saw how i was empty
in a city by the sun

on may 1, 1990
something changed inside me
and i saw the stars align
and i knew that it was meant to be

in a city by the sun
