Being alone by the Seine in the setting sun
Isn’t fun when you’re alone without anyone
I left my love by the water so very long ago

How we laughed when I would call you Mr. Funny Man
A moment’s magic as we touched holding hands
We would paint the Quai d’Orsay so very long ago

This shameless river breaks la ville de l’amour in two
But this broken city is the city where I found you
Finding you all alone wondering

Waiting for your loving Bella to arrive
All these years watching water slipping by
Every single day

Watching all the lucky lovers as they’re walking by
A lonely man, chin in hand gazing at the sky
Sitting there a vacant stare
It was my Funny Man

You couldn’t believe it when I shuffled quietly next to you
Your sadness vanished then a smile washing over you
Your Bella and her Funny Man back together again

This desperate river broke the city of love in two
But this broken city is the city where I found you
There in your lonely world waiting

Hoping for your lovely Bella to arrive
All these years watching water slipping by
Every single day

This hopeful river breaks the city of love in two
But this broken city is the city where I found you
Sitting all alone, wishing

Waiting for your loving Bella to arrive
Never knowing she was longing for you
Every single day

Years spent thinking of you
Eleanor and ‘73
Rescued by the water
Years spent thinking of you
The Rive Droite broke us in two
And now we’re rescued by the water
