Dark, small, so fragile
A treasure to your heart
Grace your fingers across the lacquer
Think of someone miles away
Piano sounds that bow in the distance
Bring me back to my room again
Ten thousand miles away

My memory is leaking
She lost a ruby thing
Trying to focus, times in the past
The music has stopped and can't carry on
All of a sudden I start to remember
Summer, Germany, then it's gone

Ten thousand miles away
The dancers are sleepy
The keys are put away
The jewel on my jacket talking, talking
Telling stories everyone's heard
My box of ghosts bids me goodnight
Clockwork spirits have the last word
Ten thousand miles away

    General CommentThere are a couple of lines in this song that suggest a seance is taking place. The laquer being graced by the fingers is probably that of a Ouija board. The fancier ones are made of laquered wood. Many boards are also stored in boxes which is likely what the line about the box of ghosts refers to.
