lyrics

As I lay back there upon the ground
I kept my ear close to the sound
Of universes rumbling
And river swells all tumbling
Above the words that we were mumbling

And the thought it did occur to me
That O somewhat ironically
As I fight the pull of entropy
So my songs are sang more joyfully
And new poems are revealed to me

Could I start again with what I know
Could I wake up with somewhere to go
Could I lie there on a gravel beach
With the water lapping at my feet
Could I be sleeping keeping out of reach

In a place where I cannot be found
Where rivers run under the ground
And I can gaze up at the firmament
I can fall asleep inside a tent
Hey d'you wonder where the summer went?

So i shirked all ideology
And I wrote my own mythology
And it was legs and arms and arms and legs
All tangled up in double beds
Some thoughts I thought should not be said

And on the verges of a hurricane
Well we wrote a song which had no name
And then we all went down and swam the lake
And we talked about the plans we'd make
Yeah we know it takes the time it takes

See it stretches on for ever
And every day is like another one
Where you never will you always might
And it comes back to me every night
'Son, you never seem to get it right'

You said 'the universe will leave you gifts
If you keep yourself open to it'
Still trying to work out what you meant
As things are borrowed time is spent
And I wonder where the money went

Pull hard against the water's flow
Come on we'll row and row and row
There will be time for wandering and wondering and Oh!
Sing long for everyone you know
