lyrics

Her name was Susanne Lorraine, dark-skinned beauty from the Port of Spain
Remembered him as Maurice Arlette, Calypso guitarist she could never forget

Left the island to find careers, performing in clubs for Italian Clans,
They’d shared all, their bed and fears, now she was engaged to New York's Mafia man

Could it be, seriously, well right now I clearly see,
Are you now finally over me?
Just a matter of time, leaving all you've left behind,
You decided to get over me?

The Depression split their ways, he was a struggling musician in a touring band,
She'd found success in a Broadway play, but secretly danced to the tune that he sang

Then the day, the Wedding came, the biggest feast in all of Trinidad,
The Mob protected by their meanest gang, there was Maurice armed with guitar in hand

Could it be, seriously, well right now I clearly see,
Are you now finally over me?
Just a matter of time, leaving all you've left behind,
You decided to get over me?

He got the gig from an old friend, in the belly of the beast with his backing band,
Maurice had had planned his escape for the end, got on stage, on the mic and sang

Oh, now I see, I never should have let you go
Oh, now I see, I never should have let you go
Grow so cold

Could it be, seriously, well right now I clearly see,
Are you now finally over me?
Just a matter of time, leaving all you've left behind,
You decided to get over me?
