I was Cleopatra
I was young and an actress
When you knelt by my mattress
and asked for my hand
But I was sad you asked it
as I laid in a black dress
With my father in a casket
I had no plans
yeah
And I left the footprints
the mud stained on the carpet
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
But I must admit it
that I would marry you in an instant
Damn your wife
I'd be your mistress just to have you around
But I was late for this
late for that
late for the love of my life
And when I die alone
when I die alone
when I die I'll be on time
While the church discouraged
any lust that burned within me
Yes my flesh
it was my currency
but I held true
So I drive a taxi
and the traffic distracts me
From the strangers in my backseat
they remind me of you
But I was late for this
late for that
late for the love of my life
And when I die alone
when I die alone
when I die I'll be on time
And the only gifts from my Lord were a birth and a divorce
But I've read this script and the costume fits
so I'll play my part
I was Cleopatra
I was taller than the rafters
But that's all in the past now
gone with the wind
Now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
It's a bed and a bathroom
And a place for the end
I won't be late for this
late for that
late for the love of my life
And when I die alone
when I die alone
when I die I'll be on time
