Lyrics: Donna Devine/Music & Instruments: Billy Playle/Vocals: Gerry Casey

What’s Better Left Unseen

(v1)
I was driving to Sonora
When I felt the right front go
The desert is no place to be
When the sun is sinking low
Then I saw a woman drawing near
Her movements feline, slow
Like a vision from the twilight zone
But how was I to know

Chorus
It was neither day nor night
But the time that intervenes
And in that eerie light
Nothing’s what it seems
The heart begins to ache
For the love it didn’t take
And the crack between the worlds
Reveals what’s better left unseen

(v2)
Every instinct said to run
But where was I to flee?
I stepped from the car and trembled
As she stopped in front of me
Her golden eyes were glowing bright
With fierce intensity
Then a shimmering light around her
Was all that I could see

Chorus
It was neither day nor night
But the time that intervenes
And in that eerie light
Nothing’s what it seems
The heart begins to ache
For the love it didn’t take
And the crack between the worlds
Reveals what’s better left unseen

(v3)
With a glance she bade me follow
To a small shack in the distance
Although sure it wasn’t there before
I offered no resistance
Her tawny skin was radiant
Her musky scent persistent
Her nails were claws on my naked back
Her hungry mouth insistent

Bridge
A long time later, at early dawn
I found myself at the car again
When I looked around
The shack was gone
But every nerve in my body screamed
For cougar eyes that glinted green
And the crack between the worlds
Reveals what’s better left…

Chorus
It was neither day nor night
But the time that intervenes
And in that eerie light
Nothing’s what it seems
The heart begins to ache
For the love it didn’t take
And the crack between the worlds
Reveals what’s better left unseen
Unseen…
