"The Scarlet Thing In You" as written by Peter Murphy and Paul Statham....
From the world to the dreaming fields of light
Yeah from the soaking mud
Gonna fly up to the sky
To the scarlet thing in you
On a long lost ocean wave of light
Submerged and unafraid

I saw you
You were one
I saw you
You were one

No way back to recall the way
Cause I threw out all the why's
Spinning with the spider in the cave
Found the scarlet thing in you
Where the birds can't reach
No words can teach
Spinning in the cave
For the scarlet thing in you

I saw you, you saw me

I saw you
You were one
I saw you
You were one

Spinning in the cave
For the scarlet thing in you

    From the world to the dreaming fields of light
    Yeah from the soaking mud
    Gonna fly up to the sky
    To the scarlet thing in you,
    On the red wings I was sailin' at night
    To the scarlet thing in you
    On a long lost ocean wave of light
    Submerged and unafraid.

    I saw you, (I saw you)
    You were one
    {I saw you!}
    You were one,
    I saw you, (I saw you)
    You were one
    {I saw you!}
    You were one.

    No way back to recall the way
    'Cause I threw out all the why's
    Spinning with the spider in the cave
    Found the scarlet thing in you,
    Where the birds can't reach
    No words can teach
    Spinning in the cave
    For the scarlet thing in you.

    I saw you,
    You saw me!

    I saw you, (I saw you)
    You were one
    {I saw you!}
    You were one,
    I saw you, (I saw you)
    You were one
    {I saw you!}
    You were one.

    (Everything's alright
    Everything's alright
    Everything's alright
    Everything's alright).

    Spinning in the cave
    For the scarlet thing in you,
    Spinning in the cave
    For the scarlet thing in you,
    Spinning in the cave
    For the scarlet thing in you,
    Spinning in the cave
    For the scarlet thing in you...
