"Mercury" as written by and Jim Meacock....
The dull light lingers
The candle flickers
Beside you in the red
The beat of nameless songs
The pulsing flame goes on
I try to hear
But I am not there

I saw you for the first time today
With nothing left in the way
I've never felt this way before
I fear I'll never feel this way again
What do you need to feel from me
Take what you want
What do you see?

On the ocean and beyond
Amidst the others

I'm waiting impatient
An echoed existence

The dull light lingers
The candle flickers
Beside you in the red
The beat of nameless songs
The pulsing flame goes on
I try to hear
But I am not there

The faces unfamiliar
I've never felt so close
A flickered little moment that goes on
That leaves me so sore
