Turning now she caught his eye

For all he knows he cannot see

Pleasures smolder inside

Cover seasons that fell from view long ago

Blame on your heart

But then you know that now

What do you do, you hide lies inside

Why do you do that, I don't know why

How long did I know you for

I don't know why you had to go

If only you had told her

The words to enfold her long ago

She took a breath and she never spoke

The words tasted like

To know she told a matinee

There was an odor [Inaudible] anyway

But you can take and you can see

There's never enough of love for destiny

Don't look back from day to day

What I noticed wasn't me

Strangers, they'll part again

They'll never know

For all the years they've disguised inside

Knowing their years of loss remain

How long did I know you for

I don't know why you had to go

If only you had told her

The words to enfold her long ago

    General CommentMy favorite song in the album. Calm and melancholy, just like Mark Hollis....well, a guy from Talk Talk did make it, so that'd explain why.

    General Commenti think it's about lovers who actually never really knew each other. now it's over. i'd really like to understand all the symbolism though.

    General CommentThe time signiture of this song appears to be a nod to Drake's "River Man", but I had always assumed the song was about Drake too. It lyrics could be seen as portraying his relationship with Robin Frederick. She claims to have been in love with Drake, but never confessed it, and they parted ways. If she had, then his fate may have been different. In any case, everyone should check out her song about Drake, "Sandy Grey". It's possibly the most beautiful song ever written - I recommend it to fans of Out of Season.
