Hotel Napkin

from by Ange Takats



Wrapped up in a hotel napkin
Is a little letter I wrote on the weekend
That says I like you, might even love you
Sealed with the kisses of a chocolate fondue

These days our love’s like an icecream
Eaten on a hot day in the middle of spring
He says I like you, might even love you
I ask for one scoop but he likes to buy me two

Maybe this could last a long time
If we resist the temptation to clarify
This feeling that floats so effortlessly
Between you and me

Taking the slow boat to the island
As the sun is slipping down to the horizon
Stars light up the sky
I look to my right
And he is by my side

Waking on a summer morning
To cicadas singing and the ocean breeze is
Playing with my hair
I look to my left
And he is there

Ange Takats Australia

One of the purest voices on the Australian music scene – Ange Takats is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song.

Her second album Arva mixes Americana folk with the sounds of 1930s jazz … think Joni Mitchell meets Billie Holiday with the Andrews Sisters on backing vocals. It was recorded and produced by J. Walker (Machine Translations).
