    damascus
    in-between syria and jordan
    lies damascus
    sounds like a pretty place
    a place where i used to live
    in another life
    you might think it was an oasis
    damascus
    when i think hard
    do my life regression thing
    i remember
    i was from damascus
    not too far from baghdad
    close to the euphrates river
    where i used to kneel at night
    to meet my lover
    hair cascading down my back
    almond eyes
    jeannie pants
    he wasn’t from damascus
    he was from the island of cyprus
    sexy
    cyprus
    and he used to bring me bottles of oil
    figs and fruits
    we’d sit on the banks of the euphrates river
    and talk of our future together
    and how many children I would bear him
    in damascus
    my love from cyprus
    who came weekly on his boat
    to damascus
    to see me
    his lady
    on the banks of the euphrates river
