Last night I dreamed you very near
Though the night was dark beyond the glass
I knew you'd left before I woke
But you'd fogged the window when you passed

The air was still and smelled like rain,
Though I'd never known so dry a spell
And what I heard there in the dark,
Are the secrets I will never tell?

[Chorus]
There is a tree beyond the world
In it's ancient roots a song is curled
I'm the fool whose life's been spent
Between what's said and what is meant

I didn't mean what went so wrong
Some things I wish I didn't know
I've always lived inside my head
And often utterly alone

I will be a pillow for your head
You can make me promises you can't keep
And I'll believe each word you've said
And hum to you while you sleep

[Chorus]

You took me by my shaking hand,
Laughed at me and closed the door,
Put your hands to my waist,
And waltzed rue round the kitchen floor

[Chorus]

So I will wander without fail
In circles that grow ever wide
The sky expands and then exhales
With an ache that never subsides

[Chorus]
