Something Exquisite

Lyrics: I knew I had come face to face with a stranger
With someone who was crazier that I knew was crazier
than you were
So, ten minutes standing the room with you
She feels a strange misgiving
Still on the edge of something exquisite…Sorrow
Brilliant is your colors baby, brilliant
Inspiration: I knew I had come face to face with someone whose
mere personality was so fascinating that, if I allowed it to do so,
it would absorb my whole nature, my whole soul,
my very art itself.
Well after I had been in the room about ten minutes…
I had a strange feeling that fate had in store for me exquisite
joys and exquisite sorrows.
The carnations of the painting had withered, but the eyes
were still wonderful in their depth and their
brilliancy of colour.
