The Queen Of Sarajevo
Lyrics: John Popper, Brendan Hill, Chan Kinchla, Tad Kinchla, Ben Wilson
Music: John Popper, Brendan Hill, Chan Kinchla, Tad Kinchla, Ben Wilson, David Bianco

In the international rumble
She takes a chance and comes to me
And falling through the cracks we tumble
Not far at all but enough to see
We've come to rest our backs against the rubble
Of a future in uncertainty

"And I'm so glad you're here" she said
"And I hate that you're here" she said
"I wish I didn't need you so much
To be here"

It's funny meeting anyone this way
But there she goes
Walking her last runway
The queen of Sarajevo

We communicate in broken English
And nervous sighs and apprehension
As fascinated we are standing witness
No alcohol could quell the tension
No kind of clever joke or small talk in this
No fate denies our soul connection

"And I'm so glad you're here" she said
"And I hate that you're here" she said
"I wish I didn't need you so much
To be here"

It's funny meeting anyone this way
But there she goes
Walking her last runway
The queen of Sarajevo

They say that in the west the blues comes easy
And the night belongs to the one who plays
But it's the ancient souls that breathe them deeply
For the bluest heart is the one who stays

It's funny meeting anyone this way
But there she goes
Watch her walk her last runway
The queen of Sarajevo

And it's so funny to be living this way
But it's time to go
Leave you standing on the runway
The queen of Sarajevo
The queen of Sarajevo
