​When She Drops Her Veil

This song is by Simon Joyner and appears on the album The Lousy Dance (1999).

Sara said come see her if you've got the time
No one else will be there, you can bring a bottle of wine
A carpet you will sit upon
As she reads your future from your palm

Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to be there when she is revealed?
When she drops her veil

There's a cloud over the city that Sara lives within
The walls outside are too many, the walls inside are too thin
But you can stay and lay upon her pillow
Or you could just disappear like an echo

Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to be there when she is revealed?
When she drops her veil

It doesn't matter what you do, she knows she always loses
It's not the ones she loves, it's the lovers that she chooses
A candle burns forever in her window
I passed it on the street not but an hour ago

Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to be there when she is revealed?
When she drops her veil

You see I once loved her poorly when I was so very restless
I left her without warning for unforeseen embraces
And now I have forgotten Sara's body
I'm sure she's not the only one who I've left wanting

Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to be there when she is revealed?
When she drops her veil

Sara said come back to me when you're through with wandering
I wrote this on her birthday in a stranger's apartment
But you can stay and lay upon her pillow
Or you could disappear just like an echo

Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to see her?
Wouldn't you like to be there when she is revealed?
When she drops her veil
