We walked out to the park
Where we always walk out to the park
& if the half-dark half-afternoon half-evening
Traced our fingers around the moon
We always reached too high too soon
We watched our breath & remembered we breathe
& stopped breathing

So brilliantly softly you
In the brilliantly softy blue

I made you a palm & I gave you my hand
& I gave you my word & my eyes
I made you an hour & I gave you an ear
& you gave me a word & your eyes

You let go a paper plane
Made crisp from the perfume
& in the soft-boiled half-yellow midmorning
The flat hall above falling empty now
Hopelessly tunelessly empty now
& we were just two more waiting to fall in

So brilliantly softly me
In the brilliantly soft deep sea

I made you a palm & I gave you my hand
& I gave you my word & my eyes
I made you an hour & I gave you my ear
& you gave me a word & your eyes

I made you a palm & I gave you a hand
& you gave me your word & your eyes
I made you an hour & I gave you my ear
& you gave me a word & your eyes
