Beside U

lyrics

the disease of this trust
is mended by
silver light of silence
blue of a boyhood sky
river's running backward
like a child of a wandering mind
slippery with forgetting
i'm feeling fine

bring your night out in the daylight

for now i walk beside you

can't kill the mystery
can't put it to sleep
makes me think i'm crazy
to keep
running circles round the silence
trying to raise the dead
can't overload the current
it's a strong thread

from one day to another
a life and back again

i study the method of ressurection
state of grace my prize possession
living like lovers do
nothing can harm you

in your footsteps orchids blooming
i'm a fool to keep assuming

but for now i walk beside you

can't kill the mystery
can't put it to sleep
it can drive you crazy
to keep
running circles round the silence
trying to raise the dead
fingers try to break it
but it's a strong thread

show me another country
dressed in colors not invented
by an earthbound mind

for now i walk beside you
for now

the sweetest flowers are late to bloom
snake slides sideways
in the sun
slippery with forgetting

feeling fine

just another child asking
why
