"Conquistador"

[ from the album "Voyager" (1992) ]

Lyrics

If I slipped away
Maybe nobody'd notice
You'd probably say
It's just one of those things
With a little dismay
And a shrug of the shoulders
You'd buy a coat
Against the cold

Love ..... has left the arena
Love ..... has left the arena

One day I'm here
The next I vanish
It seems severe
But you carry on
It's not the end of the world
There are compensations
Maybe it's money
Maybe it's drugs

Love ..... has left the arena
Love ..... has left the arena

This world is spectacular
With many diversions
You can ski down a mountain
In a dayglo suit
You can build up an empire
You can be a conquistador
And when you've won
What'll you do?
Oh

If love ..... has left the arena
Love ..... has left the arena

Da-da-da-da
