lyrics

Cityscape, concrete tower
Snowy yard or dying flower
The objects of your eye reveal
The wonder you possess
Burn your prayers on the floor
Be my Muse forever more
Singing in a city garden
In your pretty dress

It’s just to say that I’ve been thinking of you
I get distracted by the things that you do
I pray to God that you are thinking of me
But I can’t see this ending happily
It’s just the way that I’ve been thinking of you
I get distracted by the things that you do
I pray to God that you are thinking of me
But I can’t see this ending happily

Beauty is ephemeral
But yours is nailed into my wall
Oh Mother Mary help me find my
Castle in the sky
Flower child in silhouette
Come and fly into my net
So long as stars will shine so shall I
Look you in the eye

Stretched out by a window in the sunshine
With your finger pointing to the sky
Oh how I get a thrill from your double exposure
Your subtle composition gets me high
