lyrics

Romance Of The Stars

Archer, I was sleeping, when you came to my western window
Pulling stars up from the other side
That black line of mountains, that’s the hat from which they are drawn
As you float eastward, towards the darkened door of dawn

Touch me as I touch you, inhale me as I’m inhaling you
The things you mean to me archer, I have always been true

And archer, can you tell me, where does your arrow point to tonight?
I see nothing there, and besides I feel left behind and bare
It’s across night’s black oceaned magic with you I would ride

Touch me as I touch you, inhale me as I’m inhaling you
The things you mean to me archer, I have always been true

I knew you when I was younger, you sent your messengers down to me
I knew them by the stars in their eyes and around their heads and shoulders
Where have they all gone? …well not them exactly…
But the light that in there eyes that had shown

Touch me as I touch you, inhale me as I’m inhaling you
Falling backwards into dark dreams oceaned residue

Only to awaken before the day breaks
Before the lifting of the night from the skies
To see you out my eastern window as you start to fade so slow
Till you have vanished into Dawn’s yellow open morning robes

And a star falls down to the desert floor
And out of the desert someone is approaching my door
And archer yeah yeah yeah
He pleases me
