lyrics

MAARTJE SAYS NOTHING

What does Maartje say?
Maartje says nothing
Maartje says nothing
What does Maartje say?
Maartje says nothing
Maartje says nothing
What does Maartje say?
Maartje says nothing
She just smiles that way

And how the days
All seem to blur into one
Beneath the Summer sun
Lying in the shade
On the empty playing field
Pachouli oil and panda eyes
And flowers in her hair

And how how how how
How lovely she looks
How how
How lovely she looks
How how how
How lovely she looks
Now

Let me take you down
To the street where I was born
She says
And I’ll show you around
Her distant eyes look back and say
There’s much more sky
Now they’ve pulled the houses down

Everywhere you look
Summer spreads its wings
You hear someone say
She once kissed you in a dream
And you watch her now
Laugh and swear in Dutch
And when she’s through
And you ask her if it’s true

What does Maartje say?
Maartje says nothing
Maartje says nothing
What does Maartje say?
Maartje says nothing
Maartje says nothing
What does Maartje say?
Maartje says nothing
She just smiles that way

And how somedays
Leaning out too far
I stretch to see things as they are
Then I am a poet
And she shimmers like a star
She leans in faded jeans
Against somebody’s car

Sometimes she waves
Sometimes she plays
Sometimes she just pretends
She isn’t there at all
Sometimes she sits
Cross-legged on a chair
Playing Highway Star
And drawing flowers on her flares

And how how how how
How lovely she looks
How how
How lovely she looks
How how how
How lovely she looks
Now
