         G
Theres laughter in the darkness
 C                            G
Music floating in across the bay
           G
Hes half listening and wondering
 Em                              D
How he could have let her slip away
    C
So long ago but still he wants to know
               G        C/G
If anyone has seen her
          G
And hes sitting out in the night
         C             D             G    D
Looking down upon the lights of Taormina


           G                          C
They were young and love was shining
                         G
Like the colours of the rainbow
   G
Desire felt like choking
           Em                  D/A
Love was smoking under the volcano
         C
He can still taste her kisses
                               G    C/G
Sweet as the red wine from Messina
          G
Now hes sitting out in the night
         C             D             G
Looking down upon the lights of Taormina


C

Seems like another lifetime
                                   G
When they rambled along the shore

Seems like another lifetime
                                      C
She used to call him her sweet senor

Maybe in another lifetime
                         G
On a pathway to the sea
                        D
Maybe there theyll be


           G
The crowd calls for the emperor
        C                          G
Raise their hands to hail another king
          G
But hes been so long a wanderer
  Em                             D
Another crowd can never mean a thing
    C
He came, he saw, he conquered
                                    G    C/G
Ten thousand voices roared in the arena
          G
Now hes sitting out in the night
         C             D             G
Looking down upon the lights of Taormina

               G
He hears the chimes of history
 C                             G
Myths of gods and men forever ringing
          G
Ancient dreams in all their mystery
 Em                          D
Wars for Sicily and Spartan women
        C
In the mists of antiquity
                                  G    C
Ships of war set sail from Carthagina
          G
Now hes sitting out in the night
         C             D             G    C
Looking down upon the lights of Taormina

Sitting out in the night

Looking down upon the lights of Taormina

View Just Lyrics...

There’s laughter in the darkness
Music floating in across the bay
He’s half listening and wondering
How he could have let her slip away
So long ago but still he wants to know
If anyone has seen her
And he’s sitting out in the night
Looking down upon the lights of Taormina

They were young and love was shining
Like the colours of the rainbow
Desire felt like choking
Love was smoking under the volcano
He can still taste her kisses
Sweet as the red wine from Messina
Now he’s sitting out in the night
Looking down upon the lights of Taormina

Seems like another lifetime
When they rambled along the shore
Seems like another lifetime
She used to call him her sweet senor
Maybe in another lifetime
On a pathway to the sea
Maybe there they’ll be

The crowd calls for the emperor
Raise their hands to hail another king
But he’s been so long a wanderer
Another crowd can never mean a thing
He came, he saw, he conquered
Ten thousand voices roared in the arena
Now he’s sitting out in the night
Looking down upon the lights of Taormina

He hears the chimes of history
Myths of gods and men forever ringing
Ancient dreams in all their mystery
Wars for Sicily and Spartan women
In the mists of antiquity
Ships of war set sail from Carthagina
Now he’s sitting out in the night
Looking down upon the lights of Taormina
Sitting out in the night
Looking down upon the lights of Taormina
