The love in you it runs so deep
Upon the surface here I sleep
Walking the dark and light
Walking all the day and night

Rivers fall the oceanside
Fall for you here every time
Like a bee to the flower a buzz
Does a flower question love?
Love

Upon our best the quest is primed
Beating chests and open minds
I stand here in your midst
See you through the smoke and mist
Once again for you I fall
Underneath the tree so tall
Upon the limbs a nesting dove
Does a birdie question love?
Love

In the backdrop of the night
I meld into the starry light
The moon pushes and pulls the tides
Tempts a soul to stay alive
Once again for you I fall
Underneath a million stars
How could you ever have enough?

Oh this must be...
Oh this must be..

So out from your slumber
Into the wonder
Under the starlight bathe, bathe. . . .

    General CommentNote to nishidake. I edited your lyrics referencing the official lyrics on the E.R. website, but I didn't just stick to the official lyrics because it seems that the recording on the CD differs and I mostly agreed with what you seemed to be hearing. On the official lyrics the last words are "and dance, dance" However the way it is recorded does sound more like "days". I always thought I was hearing "bathe" because the idea of being bathed in starlight seemed in keeping with the sensibilities of the group who seem to hold to a somewhat magical worldview.
