There we lay in a golden field,
Our bodies open to the sun.
Strange birds circled overhead
And I see black skies around you.

In the desert there’s a ghostly wind
pulling sand from the dunes.
There will be no eastern star tonight.
Wise men, find your own way.

I put my faith in that photograph -
The only proof I’d seen the light.
I knelt down by the riverbank
And let it float into the twilight.

There we lay in a golden field,
Our bodies open to the sun.
Sifting sand in a godless land
That our love can’t save.

You gather the pieces
You pull like the sun
To this place and this time
To this place and this time.

And I see black skies around you.
