lyrics

The view from my window goes down and down
Don’t talk to me, don’t make a sound
But sunny afternoons I’ll take
Without much hesitation

So green your eyes
And blue my mind
My shoes are walking
Blindly by
The lake seems old
The lake seems fine
For me and you to stroll on

So shut my eyes, and tie me down
The sky seems bluer from the ground
But still they cry- the world is round
Too round to stroll forever

And when you’ll come to stroke my
Aching heart, it’s funny,
How you’d go so far
For sunny days
Your sunny ways are in my way dear

Dear oh dear, oh my oh my
Don’t say a word, don’t ask me why you’re here, I’m told
I’m here to fight
My right to stroll forever

But oh, my birds are dead and gone
And all your words had left with dawn
I had to break this news to you
My dear

Like those white white nights
And these dark dark days
And your precious eyes
Yes, I was amazed
But those starless skies
That you were so afraid of
Have seemed to grasp my life
Dear I’m so away from
Everything we used to think we’re going to be
Remember what you said
Oh, remember you and me
But the town was too small dear
And our hopes so hot
When you grabbed me and said, crying- forget me not
Then I said- if I can then I will
Though it’s sad- if I can then I will

But before you talk about undying love
Take a look at my red gloves
And then say, I’ve sent you from a life of despair to a life- so weary and rare
And this autumn could keep blushing forever; I know I could never go home, where the sky would be starful and pitch black
Where they say I would be back again
Where the wolves sings me lullabies every night
But I’m way too sad to be frightened.
Meet me where the eagle glides
From early dawn to tearless nights
I see you everywhere
Meet me where we used to fly
If not for you I’d ring these awful bells- I swear I’d dare.
Meet me by the river side
Meet me where our old ghosts ride
I’m waiting for you there.
