It's dark & it's a long way down
She said as she lay her head
On the pillow

I took one step back
& I retired
To evening

& the movie made me feel as if I wasn't here at all
& I drove home & I wound up all the windows in my car
In the lamplight I breathe
But the dark is falling in the garden over everything

John I'm waiting for a morning filled with sunlight
When we can both drive away
Shake the dust right off my shoes
With younger friends & skies of blue like yesterday
John I'm waiting for a morning filled with sunlight
When we can both drive away
Laughing friends & silent rides
& all the lovers that we lost are found again

I've been out walking in the verges & the quiet
Through all the traffic & the movement of the night
& the lamplight froze
Stopping so suddenly
Hearing the dim radio
