about

True story.

lyrics

just when he thought he’d convinced himself to believe
that perfection was a trick of the mind, the heart to deceive
there she stood - - proof of all he had missed
the mind’s eye could not conjure this
with raven black hair - - there stood the girl from tunis.

just when he thought what was left must somehow be right
just when he’d crossed from true darkness into false light
there she stood - - her eyes, two black desert suns
she was ever the one
with teeth white as pearls - - there stood the girl from tunis.

in midnight he lies alone unable to sleep
his heart like carthage in ruins, ashes piled in a heap
there she stood - - somebody mentioned her name
he’ll never see her again
but he’d trade the world for a glimpse of the girl from tunis.
