It's too late now to take it back
But I didn't have to bite off your head
And since then all I can think about
Is what you might have said

In the long iight of the evening
Our shadows stretch out across the open fields
And through the smoke I caught a glimpse
Of your dappled haze

It stings our eyes
And makes them cry

Now the ash is gently falling from the sky and settling
Over everything like a carpet of snow
So please forget about my lies in the light of your eyes
I still imagine in your arms
Like the fool that I am

The parakeets dive my head
And the ducks and swans glide away
And I will never know now
What you were going to say

It shouldn't be this cold in May
And these rushes remind me of the hay
In which we used to play
And your eyelashes

And this wind drives me mad
And flicks through the pages I've never read
And messes up our hair

I still wonder what the morning will bring and whether the sun spins
And why it is the moon's always showing the same face
It's funny how it's orbit's in proportion to it's spin
I still think about your questions
Like the fool that I am

Clouds drifting in the blue
Translucent leaves with the evening sun infused
And this long grass sticks like glue
And we pick our way through

The worst thing is how it silenced you
And cut short our conversation
And now all I want to know
Is what was in your head

And now I'll never know
And now I'll never know

I want to know what moves you across these summer lawns
So please don't try so hard when you know you don't have to
I still think about my lies in the pools of your eyes
I still forget too easily
Like the fool that I am
