Lyrics

She wishes Picasso was there
Words / music Franciscus Henri
ALBERT MUSIC

Apricot light colours the curtains
And falls on the bowl with the lemons and limes
Uncut bread is on the table
And an unopened bottle of wine
And she wishes Picasso was there


Echoes of places and times long ago
Under the olive trees, lovers are playing
Tied to a post a nanny goat bleats
Out in a field a donkey is braying
And she wishes Picasso was there
And she wishes Picasso was there


She has her dreams and she draws them on paper
With crayons of azure, vermilion and green
On the white canvas she brushes the colours
Of a world never known, of a joy never seen
And she wishes Picasso was there
And she wishes Picasso was there

Wearing only a yellow straw hat she dances
While pan plays the flute and Bacchus pours wine
She watches herself, she turns in the mirror
She knows she’s a God, she knows she’s divine
And she wishes Picasso was there
And she wishes Picasso was there

Moonlight gently brushes the curtains
A burning candle measures time
Uncut bread is on the table
And an unopened bottle of wine
And she wishes Picasso was there
And she wishes Picasso was there
And she wishes Picasso was there

What a great story song!
You can instantly see the character, the place and setting, the time ... and the enigmatic subject of the song herself.   This is a fantastic lyric and, of course, very well produced.   It goes straight to my list of MJ all-time faves.
