lyrics

This weekend I watched my heart
Melt through the river
A delicate balance In the rapids it rode [holding on]

Like Romulus, to meet his Remus
Flowing down to Rome [and its seven mountains]
Looking far into the future, it wound through the past
Travelling past these hills
So it didn’t have to live, what was happening now

Last night I saw my life
Float out on the lake
It bobbed, and nodding came
To rest dead bang centre [I prowled and I roamed]

Slipping searching on the banks I watched from the woods
And climbed up the trunks [from all angles I looked]
Each time it glittered, I moaned and I shuddered
For it was real gold
And for the life of me, I could not swim

At dawn I bid my love
Adieu out to sea
Filled with laughter
Weighed down by my tears [It drifted steadily]

Towards the bedrock drop by drop
Before it sank, it caught a glimpse of the sky bent down
[singing softly to the waves]

An eternal embrace, a line of infinity:
it was the horizon [with this picture]
of everlasting
...a child resting
It closed its eyes
It didn’t hear me whisper, tales from our splendour
