Through the woods, and frosted moors
Past the snow-caked hedgerows I
Bed down upon the drifting snow
Sleep beneath the melting sky
I whisper all your names
I know not where you are
But somewhere, somewhere, somewhere here
Upon this wild abandoned star

And I'm full of love
And I'm full of wonder
And I'm full of love
And I'm falling under
Your spell

I have no abiding memory
No awakening, no flaming dart
No word of consolation
No arrow through my heart
Only a feeble notion
A glimmer from afar
That I cling to with my fingers
As we go spinning wildly through the stars

And I'm full of love
And I'm full of wonder
And I'm full of love
And I'm falling under
Your spell

The wind lifts me to my senses
I rise up with the dew
The snow turns to streams of light
The purple heather grows anew
I call you by your name
I know not where you are
But somehow, somewhere, sometime soon
Upon this wild abandoned star

And I'm full of love
And I'm full of wonder
And I'm full of love
And I'm falling under
Your spell

    The Lyrics are so poetic and evoquing that I guess one can see so many meanings in this song
    I think it is about projecting ur ideals into a person, then loving the concept of that person .. and because it is all made up, u cant reason urself out of it .. spell sums it up ..
    This verse made me think so

    " I have no abiding memory
    No awakening, no flaming dart
    No word of consolation
    No arrow through my heart
    Only a feeble notion
    A glimmer from afar
    That I cling to with my fingers
    As we go spinning wildly through the stars "

    The strings right after the chorus make my heart ache ( whatever that means ) ...

    General CommentWell picked verse loobiieloo.
    I think it's a classic Cave version of the Love Song: no classical view of love (no flaming dart);
    with the desperation (cling to with my fingers) but still with the kind-of "head-over-heels" imagery - great
