I lose myself and dream of worlds
That lie between your fingers
And hide behind your eyes
And dream of forests
And forts of snow
Where we may kneel and hold each other
In our still young arms
Till the moon goes out
And sleep and kiss
You know it's time
It's only time
That passes between us
Our shadows long on the grass behind us
In the bushes, in the fields
The poppies drowsing still
Whilst the sun drops down

Insistent cuckoo meets silent children
It's only time who lies between us
It's only time who creeps towards us
And nods and crouches at our door
It's 7 o'clock, stuck forever
His face behind the dial
When the snake is dead they put roses in their head
When the roses die they put diamonds in their eye

We all speak unknown languages to each other
We're all half-dead
The motion of the hand
The skeletal grace
Unconscious and a bright yellow moon
We are walking like shadows
You and I
You and I
We're walking like shadows
