Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

A Perfect Canopy



i told a pretty girl
a thousand years ago
that if she kissed me sweet
i'd never let her go

her eyes were like the summer
her lips were like the spring
her hair like autumn leaves
in winter she did sing

i'd hold her in my arms
we'd lay beneath a tree
forever in the gentle shade
a perfect canopy
a perfect canopy

we were never old
we were never young
we were never never
we were everyone
we were on the hill
we were in the sun
we were running free
we were everyone
everyone you see
everything you do
is just another version
it's just another you
nothing to complete
nothing to be free
we are everything
everything you see
we were never old
we were never young
we were never never
we were everyone
everyone

i remember oceans
waves breaking on the sand
birds that ran on skinny legs
and castles made by hand

did we face the music
did we face the west
did we watch the sun
vanish in the mist

everywhere is beauty
everywhere is sky
we are in forever
until we say goodbye
until we say goodbye

we were never old
we were never young
we were never never
we were everyone
we were on the hill
we were in the sun
we were running free
we were everyone
everyone you see
everything you do
is just another version
it's just another you
nothing to complete
nothing to be free
we are everything
everything you see
we were never old
we were never young
we were never never
we were everyone
everyone

(softly)
i told a pretty girl
a thousand years ago
that if she kissed me sweet
i'd never let her go

her eyes were like the summer
her lips were like the spring
her hair like autumn leaves
in winter she did sing

i'd hold her in my arms
we'd lay beneath a tree
forever in the gentle shade
a perfect canopy
a perfect canopy

Hey. Maybe I'll hang out over here sometimes. Peaceful, under the canopy.

Nice lyrics.
