lyrics

Well you called me – telephone ringing in the night.
And you asked me if I was alright –
like an afterthought, an oversight.
And I stood, so surprised,
trying to hold on to my pride.
So close, I could hear your low sigh.
I said I was fine. You said you were fine.

There’s a loneliness – I don’t lose sight of it.
Like a high distant satellite,
one side in shadow, one in light.
But I didn’t mind to be alone that night, in a city

I’d never seen – all these skyscrapers pooling on a prairie.
Built high and tall, as though they all compete
just to reach the darkness up above
that once here had been.

Somewhere – if there’s a beauty you had seen in me.
That I wanted somehow to believe – drift of sentiment and memory.
That I couldn’t have, I could not keep.
No, it never did belong to me; it was only ever another thing I would carry.
Still it held me, loyalty, to a feeling, to some glimpse,
of a love that was only ever a kind of distance.
That we could not cross. “Gather no moss.”
