Paroles de Cadence & cascade

Cadence and Cascade

Kept a man named Jade;

Cool in the shade
While his audience played.

Purred, whispered, "Spend us too:

We only serve for you".

Sliding mystified

On the wine of the tide

Stared pale-eyed

As his veil fell aside.

Sad paper courtesan

They found him just a man.
Where the sequin spell fell

Custom of the game.

Cadence oiled in love

Licked his velvet gloved hand

Cascade kissed his name.

Sad paper courtesan

They knew him just a man.
