State Cows - Tunisian Nights (lyrics)

I checked into a small hotel
A mile back from the main road
Where my car had broken down

The porter asked me quietly
To have a seat, to drink some tea
And turn my eyes around

The view was changing fast, like I traveled back in time, I had no worries of tomorrow

CHORUS
Those Tunisian nights, caught in a heatwave
I was feeling alright, the warmness of the sun
Those Tunisian nights, the desert transforming
I was feeling alright, but did it really happen I don't know


I found myself a bedouin, sitting in a red marquee
With harem girls around
A camel with a pair of shades
Handed me a golden key
As I fell into a dream

The view was changing fast, like I traveled back in time, I had no worries of tomorrow

CHORUS

When I woke up I was in my chair, I went outside to get a sip of air
When I opened up my bag a key fell out
And it's how I remember those Tunisian nights
