Al Stewart - The Year Of The Cat Lyrics

  • On a morning from a Bogart movie
  • In a country where they turn back time
  • You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre
  • Contemplating a crime
  • She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running
  • Like a watercolour in the rain
  • Don't bother asking for explanations
  • She'll just tell you that she came
  • In the year of the cat
  • She doesn't give you time for questions
  • As she locks up your arm in hers
  • And you follow 'till your sense of which direction
  • Completely disappears
  • By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls
  • There's a hidden door she leads you to
  • These days, she says, I feel my life
  • Just like a river running through
  • The year of the cat
  • Well, she looks at you so cooly
  • And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea
  • She comes in incense and patchouli
  • So you take her, to find what's waiting inside
  • The year of the cat
  • Well, morning comes and you're still with her
  • And the bus and the tourists are gone
  • And you've thrown away the choice and lost your ticket
  • So you have to stay on
  • But the drum-beat strains of the night remain
  • In the rhythm of the new-born day
  • You know sometime you're bound to leave her
  • But for now you're going to stay
  • In the year of the cat
