LYRICS - FOREVERANDEVERNOMORE

Who Gives A Thought

Who gives a thought about the fireflies
Short lives of moving light
Perform their quiet flight
The stars of starless nights

Who gives a thought about the nematodes
There isn't time these days
For microscopic worms
Or for unstudied germs
Of no commercial worth

And who gives a thought about the labourers
The ones who dig and hoe
Who weld and reap and sow
Who braid and cut and grind
Who split and join and wind
Who reach and teach and hack
And bring the children back
To serve the self-made man

We Let It In

Your deep sun
Sun, sun, sun

The soul of it is running gay
With open arms through golden fields (Your, deep)
And even though the corn is high (Sun, sun)
And sometimes harsh against the heels (Sun, your)

(Your, deep) We open to the blinding sky
(Your, deep) And let it in, and let it in (Sun, sun)
(Sun) With open hearts through burning fields (Sun)
The soul of it in gorgeous flame (Deep, sun)
The whole of it in gorgeous flame (Sun, sun)

(Your) We let it in, (deep) we let it in (sun)
We let it in, we let it in
We let it in, we let it in
We let it in, we let it in

Icarus or Blériot

All this world
All this time
Here above the galaxy
Who are we?

Try to fly
Brave the sun
Icarus or Blériot
Who are we?

Now so high
In a cloud
Far above the battlements
Who were we?
Who were we?
Who were we?
Who were we?

Garden Of Stars

And all around me
All this is made of me
They will remain in me
My garden of stars

And in the velvet night
In all that crystal light
Shine, shine sweet light
So old and clear

These billion years will end
These billion years will end
These billion years will end
They end in me
They end in me

And how then could it be
That we appear at all?
In all this rock and fire
In all this gas and dust
Are we not each a flame?
All born to live in light
All born to give our light

How could it be?
How should it be?
And all around me
And all around me
And all around me
My garden of stars

There Were Bells

There were birds above, they sang the whole day through
And the sky revolves a pink to golden blue
All the roads through time weave the world's long rhyme
And it all unravels in a sea of pearls and swine

There were bells above that rang the whole day through
And the sky was shot with light and hazy blue
Early days of winter sun, all the days turned into one
All the sirens beckoning the crew

There were horns as loud as war that tore apart the sky
There were storms and floods of blood of human life
Never mind, my love, let's wait for the dove
Fly back to tell us there is a haven showing nigh
There were those who ran away
There were those who had to stay
In the end, they all went the same way

Sherry

On a long
Long ride to Bonn
Last light from an old sun

Soon the moon will rise again
Here, now
It's all horizons

Hard to steer
These new stars
No clear lines to guide us

Always there
For the last hooray
Last light of an old sun

I'm Hardly Me

I would say this is all that there is in play
Now it is in this bitter day
In the wide and the driving snow

I may say
Oh, oh, oh, I may have to say
This is new and it's not the same
Nothing can ever be the same

These Small Noises

These small noises All we died for These small faces All we saw

Take us
Take us
We are over
Make us
Make us
Into land

Land of soil
We owe our fathers
Olive tree line
Now no more

Go to Earth
Our hair on fire
Go to Hell
In Hell to burn
