We are the ones that will make this day real
(and the morning sun is beautiful now)
We are the two that (as one) will grow insane
Because love is mad and always true
We are the ones that will call the breeze to tighten our minds
And dry our eyes, and whiten our skin with the salt of the sea
We are the ones that will never know
That tomorrow is lonely and impossibly far.
There is no time like the present
To lounge upon a cool black marble floor in Spain
With wine and smoking and together and laughing
The air is hot and lizards skitter up the wall
Flat and hard against the whitewash lost in the dust
Our first time upon a black marble floor in Spain
With honey in our hips and the strange heat
We kiss the bone white salt from bronze skin
We kiss until there is only bronze skin
And shudder as all the earth comes.
The light is our saviour this morning
Because there is only light where we hold this single beat
This light is our saviour this morning
Because there is only us where we hold this single heart
This was planned from the start
And is as vital as the honey dripping
This morning we are saved
And the earth rests.
And then the heat and the dry fields which lead us to the sea
We link hands and watch the waves crashing
And the gulls circle overhead calling
This beautiful mad spinning world is still ours
This magical vision which covers us is still magical
This paradise which escapes the deathly mortal hand
Is still a paradise.
This moment which leads us to forget is but a moment
This eternity in which we dwell is forever
And forever is a boat on the horizon which rises and falls
Forever is the call of the gulls
Forever is the lovers who we follow
Forever is those who remain when we are dead and buried.
The sand drips through the soft glass
And we stand by the water’s edge
With the breeze in our hair and the roses
Always in the space around us.
