Southern Suburbs

Can I be your lover
In the Southern Suburbs?
I wanna run for cover
Under the canopy

Can I please come over
In my green Land Rover?
You're like a bossa nova
Playing in the heart of me

Fill a bowl with roses
As evening closes
In on my dreams

Come and cool my forehead
And put me in my bed
I feel feverish

And I know it's not the truth
It's only me and only you
But it's an endless fall I'm falling
And I can only heed my calling

Can I be your lover
In the Southern Suburbs?
I wanna run for cover
Under the canopy

Can I please come over
In my green Land Rover?
You're like a bossa nova
Playing in the heart of me

I could hear you coming
You were a hummingbird
Hovering

I think you're so pretty
Not far from the city
In our Eden

And I know it's not the truth
It's only me and only you
But it's an endless fall I'm falling
And I can only heed my calling

You keep me hanging tight
Suspended like an epiphyte
And I won't let go
I know that I'm right
My love
Don't try to calm me down
Don't calm me down
Calm me down
I'll calm down

Can I be your lover
In the Southern Suburbs?
I wanna run for cover
Under the canopy

Can I please come over
In my green Land Rover?
You're like a bossa nova
Playing in the heart of me
