What a beautiful face I have found in this place
That is circling all around the sun
What a beautiful dream that could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet/ let me hold it close and keep it here with me

And one day we will die and our ashes will fly
From the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young/ let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be in the arms of all I’m keepin’ here with me

What a curious life we have found here tonight
There is music that sounds from the street
There are lights in the clouds Anna’s ghost is all around
Hear her voice as its rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet/ how the notes all bend and reach above the trees

Oh now how I remember you/ how I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move/that make your voice so smooth and sweet
And now we keep what we don’t know/ Our secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago/ now he don’t even know his name


What a beautiful place I have found in your face
That is circling all around the sun
When we meet on a cloud I’ll be laughing out loud
I’ll be laughing with everyone I see

Can’t believe how strange it is to be anything at all
