Eiffel Tower

I wrote this song a couple decades ago and recorded it a few years ago with Late Model Humans. A recent trip to Paris has brought it back to the forefront of my memory.

It’s been so long since I held you in my arms
It’s been so long since you held me in your heart
And I’ve been running ’round, up and down, making love on the Eiffel Tower

Baby I know it’s too late
But baby I’m going to change anyway
And stop all this running ’round, up and down, making love on the Eiffel Tower

Now that I need you
You’re nowhere at all
But I just keep thinking
When you needed me
I stared through you at a brick wall

Baby I just can’t quit
But baby I can’t forget
All of our running ’round, up and down, making love on the Eiffel Tower
