"Forget our fate", the pedlar sings.
Set up to sell my soul,
I've lived a life for wealth to bring.
And yet I'll gaze [at]...
The colour of spring,
Immerse in that one moment,
Left in love with everything,
Soar the bridges that I burnt before,
One song among us all...

    General CommentNo comments here??/ahhh!!!! what a great album his solo is. This song is breathtaking. so sparse, so minimal, so powerful. Its about forgetting where all going to die someday, and living within the moment, being at peace, gazing at the colour of spring.

    General CommentMark Hollis says as much in the silence between notes as he does with sound. This song is simply exquisite.

    General CommentI agree with bigdt87.
    btw, great moments of silence at the beginning of this track. It is like a pianist waiting a few short moments before starting to play. The anticipation of the beauty to come.
