Lyrics

Katherine With A K

blonder than the sun
in my memory you stood six foot one
turns out you were really kind of small
but your voice rang like an orchestra

Katherine with a K you said
the night I asked your name
I love you still and Iíll never be the same

your vocabulary was legendary
complicated, dirty, and literate
you channelled Peggy Lee and Patti Smith
fighting in an alley

Katherine with a K you said
the night I asked your name
I love you still and Iíll never be the same

it was 2 a.m. the night you learned
Iíd never tried escargot
so you found an all night French cafe
and we ate snails!

Katherine with a K you said
the night I asked your name
I love you still and Iíll never be the same

of all of my regrets youíre the most beautiful
we were both smitten but when we met we werenít free
a world without you in it, so hard to contemplate
I couldnít believe it when I heard

I saw a picture of you at eight years old
and you looked just the same
I always saw the child in the woman you became
so filled with wonder
