lyrics

I know, I know,
I know
I appear to be taking
Everything so slow, and
Falling,
Falling,
Falling,
Falling behind.


So you go, you go,
You go
Where it's bigger,
And there's neon:
Brighter than the moon, and...

...the sounds are all speeding up, to catch the light.

And I'll stay here, To keep me near.


But I adore the way
You pull me over there.
And that's before I've even
Stopped to catch a breath of air...

...and all the surreptitious petrel storms
Have plotted with the killer whales
To build a tidal wave As big as it can grow;
And bring it crashing down
To stop the ebb and flow
Of all the automation;
Traffic Lights,
Tremendously,
And turn the day to night.

I know, I know,
I know, I know.

If I go, I go,
I go, I go,

Then you'll take it
In your place
To come
Back
Here.

(come back here)

It won't be in a year,
But give it two or three.
When you'll be ready,
So I'll take you back with me
To where the autumn comes
A little soon,
But that's OK
Because I've got the moon...

...to tell me everything
I'll ever need to hear
About the universe,
And how to keep you near.

The universe,
And how to keep you near.
