Did I sleep? Do I dream of cold, silent water

So deep and dark

And the wires are singing our song?

Our song


As we lay back and stared into cloudless skies

And the stars up there

The wires are singing our song

The wires are singing our song


Your face, now so plain, once was so lovely

A beautiful refrain, duet with stars

But your smile now in disguise became a flat line

And to never love again like you did before

Was all


Why go on with it, why go on with it?

Why, to let it flow, like water on snow?


I know what you want, what you are thinking

To drift beyond the pain and out of reach

To sit, be safe and warm inside your sorrow

And listen to the slow, slow morse tapping of the rain

But it says:


Why go on with it? Why go on with it?

Why to let it flow like water on snow?
