The Truth - Time O'The Signs - Arnboll Bay
This song

Painting by Jim WarrenArnboll Bay

T’was New Year’s Eve on a Goa’an beach
And all the stars in the sky were within easy reach
She kissed me softly on the cheek
And took my breath away

She said to me in a gentle voice
Hey darling tonight could I entice
You to a simple meal of fish and rice
At Peter’s cliffside cafe

I said spark up the pipe
And let’s get high as kite’s tonight
And we’ll dance in the firelight
While the hiphop music plays

I’ve loved you from the start
And I’ve loved you with all my heart
Cos I know that we’ll never part
Until our lives get in our way

The acid man he came from France
He wore a toothless grin and tie dyed pants
He said to me would you take a chance
I’m giving my trips away
But not until the moon does rise
Then I saw the mischief in his eyes
And it came to me as no great surprise
When he shouted out Bombalay

He said spark up the pipe
And let’s get high as kites tonight
And we’ll dance in the full moonlight
While the hiphop music plays
We’ll eat banana cake
And swim beneath the lake
And I’ll show you a daybreak
Over Arnboll Bay

And as I held her close to me
And we strolled the edge of the Arabian Sea
We were wild and we were free
And our cares they were a world away

And she said spark up the pipe
Let’s get high as kites tonight
We’ll dance in the full moonlight
While the hiphop music plays
We’ll eat banana cake and we’ll swim beneath the lake
And I’ll show you a daybreak
Over Arnboll Bay

Arnboll Bay
Arnboll Bay
Arnboll Bay
She said spark up the pipe
