Damon Albarn – The Tower of Montevideo Lyrics

The Tower of Montevideo Lyrics – Damon Albarn

The tower of Montevideo has many rooms
Some of them are empty since I left you
Standing in silhouette by the long window
Drinking coffee and scrutinized by a black cat
Who lies on the daybed and abandons the world
As the hours slide off the page like clouds somewhere else

Once there was cinema and there were parties
And a light at the top of the tower could reach Argentina (since I left you)
Where they talk behind doors of distant lands and faraway places
And the portrait of the architect was kept down in the basement
Of the tower of Montevideo
Oh, the tower of Montevideo

I can hear music, I can hear footsteps
Ghost of an empty room, Montevideo

The tower of Montevideo
