About the songEdit
The song was written by Bryan Ferry and Andy Mackay of the British band Roxy Music, who originally released the track on their 1973 Stranded album. The track is an example of self-disciplined rock which includes Ferry on piano who also performs vocals with emotion, supported by an eerie, pained musical backing. Andy Mackay performs saxophone, with expressive guitar work by Phil Manzanera and dramatic drumming by Paul Thompson.

Here as I sit At this empty cafe Thinking of you I remember All those moments Lost in wonder That we'll never Find again Though the world Is my oyster It's only a shell Full of memories And here by the Seine Notre-Dame casts A long lonely shadow Now - only sorrow No tomorrow There's no today for us Nothing is there For us to share But yesterday These cities may change But there always remains My obsession Through silken waters My gondola glides And the bridge - it sighs ... I remember All those moments Lost in wonder That we'll never Find again There's no more time for us Nothing is there For us to share But yesterdays Ecce momenta Illa mirabilia Quae captabit In aeternum Memor Modo dolores Sunt in dies Non est reliquum Vero tantum Comminicamus Perdita Tous ces moments Perdus dans l`enchantement Qui ne reviendront Jamais Pas d'aujourd'hui pour nous Pour nous il n'y a rien A partager Sauf le passe.
