Lyrics

The market is alive, a feast of colours for the eye
I've got almonds, figs, and oranges from Valencia
I'm gathering a vision of the meal I'll make alone
With my army of artichokes from Almería

I run back as I decide to buy the fresh catch of the day
And I crash into a rugged smile, and I think I hear him say:

‘I’ve got wine from the sunniest vine
Let's dine on my yellow veranda
Come along and we'll laugh until dawn
Let's dine on my yellow veranda’

I drop my bag of artichokes, they scramble on the floor
And they roll between his shoes of sturdy leather
I gather up my might but he can see that I am shy
And says, ‘worry not we'll pick them up together.’

I look up and I can see he's just as curious as I
So I break into a smile and then imagine his reply

‘I’ve got wine from the sunniest vine
Let's dine on my yellow veranda
Come along and we'll laugh until dawn
Let's dine on my yellow veranda’

Should I come to my senses
Or should I keep dreaming that he's gonna say
'My table's set for two'
