Barleyjuice – State Of Desiree Lyrics

And we separated without thought
at the hand of the TSA. Oh the years go by and I’m not set free,
From the state of Desiree. Let the rain fall down upon my brow,
for my love has gone awry. And I answered questions about me youth,
and they searched me and let me walk away,
and when I turned around she could not be found,
my darling Desiree. Now it’s been two years and I am left here,
in the state of Desiree
In the bustling throng of the customs queue
we were tired and yearned just to lay. We had come to work in the promised land,
where we dreamed we’d be happy all the day. On a Christmas night, on a Dublin flight,
we did toast with stars in our eyes. And the lights of New York City shone,
like a million diamonds from the sky. The years go by, I am not set free,
The state of Desiree. Did she leave me here for a Yankee boy,
on the dos-legged blue S flight(?)
Did she lose recall, has she been detained,
Was she linked to the IRA?
