Through the iron gate
A memory comes too late
Closing up a window while you and I hesitate

But I will look to you and you to me
I get taken and mistaken habitually

I get tossed like a bone to the dogs in the sky
And closing is a gathering of eyes
But I will look to you and you to me
In between the space we chase the tune we dreamed so lazily

And I will look to you and you to me
Habitually

I get tossed like a bone to the dogs in the sky
And closing is a gathering, a gathering of eyes

But I will look to you and you to me
In between the space we chase the tune we dreamed so lazily

    General CommentThis song was great to listen to in Great Barrington Massachusetts when the song was recorded.
    It seems as if he dies but fights it as much as he can to be with his love. The iron gate seems to be the entrance of heaven and the dogs in the sky are those who take the deceased up. The gathering of eyes are those who look around as he denies the beauty of heaven for his love....great song
