Today I woke
Hidden from the sun
I heard a young man speaking, magic on his tongue
Bound at the feet
Taken by the wrist
He reaches out to me, a diamond in his fist

I hear my name
Repeating like a prayer
Within the chambers of the early morning air
You speak of love
So innocent and clear
Invent an emptiness where I can disappear

And time goes away
Where no one can see

But in the mind’s eye
The summer never ends
The days go on and on
Until you sleep again

The strangers kissed
The lovers could not part
They could not see the ending coming from the start
There were no signs
No changes in the air
If there were better times, I can’t imagine where

But in the mind’s eye
The summer never ends
The days go on and on
Until you sleep again

And time goes away
Where no one can see

Today I woke
His name upon my tongue
I saw the birds above me leaving one by one
A promise held too tightly
Always comes apart
Within the verses and reverses of the heart

But in the mind’s eye
The summer never ends
The days go on and on
Until you sleep again

And time goes away
