about

music and lyrics written by Chris Cawthray, with chord-changes and a title borrowed from Djavan

lyrics

samurai

I saw the tear in your kimono
you said it was from dancing
last night you parked outside of his dojo
in your Mitsubishi Lancer

warm sake
and sakura
and you try to deny it
you've given your heart to the Samurai
and I can't abide it

Samurai
oh he caught your eye
and you try to deny it
it cuts so deep
oh you know I weep
while the sun is rising

I always thought I was your one and only
your otoko ichiban
now here I sit
so sad and lonely
wondering if I'm the only one

warm sake
and sakura
and you try to deny it
you've given your heart to the Samurai
and I can't abide it
