Sweet Angelique - Thinking you needed me was my conceit
Sweet Angelique - When you vanished in the crowd on Bourbon Street
I knew right then that's the last time we'd ever meet

Along the way - Did you find yourself some peace and harmony?
Along the way - Did you cast your spell to charm some company?
You needed more adoration than you got from me

With a heart full of sin and a doll full of pins
You were always my French Quarter queen
Lately I find you're back on my mind
Haunting my Mardi Gras dreams

Hope Papa Bondye - Has been kind to you throughout the miles and years
Hope Papa Bondye - Has steered you from that river made of tears
Here the damage done is even worse than it appears

Sweet Angelique - Can you hear the herons calling out your name?
Sweet Angelique - Since you've been gone the delta's not the same
And the high winds scold we've only got ourselves to blame
The high winds scold we've only got ourselves to blame...

. Quite honestly I can't stop listening to this wonderful elixir of a song. The story is haunting and engaging. It requires the listener to beg for more of the story. Please, share more of this story!
