What took you so long?
Can’t you see the fire is gone
You took your life for granted
Riding elephants and eating mangos
You scrape the dirt from your hands
Stories and legends in your fingernails

What took you so long?
You left when nothing was wrong
You have your bungalow
Treasures in the Indian snow
Your lover cries at the shore
Where is my carpet? The magic is gone

The little girl and the dragonfly
That was you leaving L.A. for the last time

What took you so long?
Vacation with a bong
Your passport fairytale
Bombay was a Mexican jail
The heat under your skin
Everything’s burning, you don’t fit in

So baby, after tonight
It’s back to the daze of your everyday life
