lyrics

here in the foreground like a child at a fairground
I'm waiting for the penny to drop
so they'll lift me all the way to the top
of this roller-coaster ride, my eyes are open wide

I got a head full of ideas but my vision ain't so clear
and I don't see things quite the way I used to
it's taken quite a bit of getting used to
whoever am I these days? who am I now?

lovely as you look tonight, your loveliness has me all tied up
and I am unworded here beside you
without my words, whatever else can I do
but sit and stare, spellbound in my chair

a heavy frost has laid down, the windows are glazed over
and beyond them the world has fallen silent
there's only you and me left on this island
wherever shall we go? whatever shall we do?

but if you need a place to rest awhile
then right here, right here will do
close your eyes and keep them tight
and let this moment find its way to you
