Mystery Movie © wds Peggy van Zalm & Philip Kakulas

Thru the lace of rain I see her white umbrella like a light
Her hair a red flame caught up in the wind
Inside the grubby sky I see two rainbows hanging high
Like some candy coloured bridges from above
I see her misty shadow like a river mad of licorice
floating by
floating by

and
The whole of the world is a mystery movie
I know I wanna watch tonight
and its cold inside this icecream building
and I'm listening to the rain keeping time
listening to rain keeping time

The leaves they weave a golden carpet
Skeleton trees outside my door
Someone's singing and I know it's her
Strangest song I ever heard
Her voice it carries through the air
Footsteps coming up the stairs
they're coming closer
up the stairs

and
The whole of the world is a mystery movie
I know I wanna watch tonight
and its cold inside this icecream building
and I'm listening to the rain keeping time
listening to rain keeping time

She said "I am your future, I am your past, I'm every question
that you've ever asked"
Then she looks me in the eyes and sees behind the mask
and it's getting dark
it's getting dark...

and the whole of the world
the whole of the world
the whole of the world
is listening to rain keeping time
and the whole of the world is a mystery movie yeah
listening to the rain keeping time
I'm listening to the rain
the rain
the rain
