peach trees lyrics – rufus wainwright

is true love a trip to chinatown
or being held in one’s opium gaze
under the peach trees
there i’ll sit and wait

is true love a long walk through bryant park
or being held in the month of may
under the peach trees
there i will be, will be until you come and get me

cause i’m so tired of waiting in restaurants
reading the critics and comics alone
with a waiter with a face made for currency
like a coin in ancient rome

and i really do wish you were here next to me
cause i’m going to see james dean
there i will be
under the peach trees with him
