"Crystalnight" as written by and Richard/thomas Woolgar....
(Crystalnight)

When we walked in the sun
And we spoke with our eyes
Knowing what was to come
In the season of ice
When we walked in the sun
And talked in the sun
And we knew everything.

When we lived in a time
That's eluded us now
We try hard to return
But nobody knows how
When we lived in a time
And loved in a time
And we had everything.

(Crystalnight)

Mmmmh, and we knew everything

(Crystalnight)

Now the tables have turned
And the seasons have passed
We have wasted our lives
And strayed from the path
That we walked in the sun
When we talked in the sun
And we had everything

When we walked in the sun
And we spoke with our eyes
Knowing what was to come
In the season of ice
When we walked in the sun
And talked in the sun
And we knew everything

Mmmmh, and we knew everything

Now haven't you heard, haven't you heard?
(Crystalnight)
We're a part of the night.

Now haven't you heard, haven't you heard?
(Crystalnight)
We're a part of the night.

Now haven't you heard, haven't you heard?
We're a part of the night.

    General CommentThis song is so nebulous, it's hard to know. Does Crystalnight refer to Germany's 1938 Krystalnaught, the infamous evening Reichmiesters decimated Jewish businesses-- breaking glass, looting, burning.

    Or is it about a failed relationship? A relationship ("when we walked in the sun", sun warmth and radiance of love) which protagonists say was better than anything ("we have wasted lives and strayed from the path") they've had since?

    Or is it (don't shoot me) about our relationship with Love himself? As children, having some awareness our emotional freedom would dimish as, according to the narrative of Peter Pan, we eventually "matured" into selfish, destructive, and, in some cases myopic, pirates?

    I don't know...but I like it!
