08 LINGERING IN SALVADOR

Been walking around with a pack on my back
Walking many miles to get my mind off the track
Of doing my duty teaching children at school
Now my only duty is to chill by the pool
Iím taking it easy in the heat of the day
At night I go dancing or attend Candomblť
Try to make it to breakfast every now and then
A difficult task - they clear the tables at ten

Travelling light, travelling hard
Searching my own Eden park
Lingering in Salvador
But the saviours there donít work no more

My heart is a fountain, my love is a brook
Iím wondering about all the furrows it took
Iíve got enough feeling to water this land
Unsuspecting pebbles and innocent sand
Iím thinking Ďbout this, Iím thinking Ďbout that
Iím thinking Ďbout getting a new kind of hat
I try to get through to the bottom of things
As I find myself stranded with an idiot who sings:

Travelling light, travelling hard
Searching my own Eden park
Lingering in Salvador
But the saviours there donít work no more

Iím driving my car as slow as I can
When Iím driving, they call me the slow motion man
Iím slowing down till thereís no more speed
Driving fast sure ainít none of my needs
Iím singing my songs in an old-fashioned way
CD listeners think my hair must be grey
And when they see me, theyíre kind of surprised:
ďThat geezerís hair is as brown as his eyesď

Travelling light, travelling hard
Searching my own Eden park
Finally in Nazarť
I think of the Brazilian bay
