When
I'm drifting in my dream
I love you

When
I wake and nothing's what it seemed
I love you

When
The final midnight's poised to stroke
I love you

And all of the looking glasses broke

When
All of the aces have been drawn
I love you

When
Your king is cornered by my pawn
I love you

When
You are asleep and so defenceless
I love you

When
This wicked world
Has turned against us

Even though
We didn't kiss goodbye
I love you

When
There are no tears in me to cry
I love you

When
The willow's weeping
With desire

When
The furthest cold and distant planet
Catches fire, fire

Tear at the sky
Haunted by windows
Those are the eyes
Always searching never seeing souls are sailing
Slowly, lonely

When
They've got our names down on a list
I love you

When
I am recalling our first kiss
I love you

When
You are distracted and remote
I love you

When
There is no voice
Left in my throat

When
The rains are spilling from the sky
I love you

When
The thirsty riverbeds are dry
I love you

Though
You never asked me to be yours

When the wild and restless waves are crashing
On the shore

Tear out the sky
Crowded by windows
Those are the eyes
Always searching never seeing souls are sailing
Slowly, lonely

When
You are a million miles away
I love you

When
We've dropped our lines from this mad play
I love you

Though
Our longest battle is not won
I love you

When
The stage is dark
The people gone

When
My soul no longer
Takes its form

And
You hear me singing
In the storm
