lyrics

I need to keep you in my life;
To keep an image of you in my mind,
of driving in twilight
over Pennines.

The world seems to stand still in your house
and all the weight of it all is kept out
and kept out
and degaussed
and deloused.

I won’t let you become avatar’d.
The grains that make you up are too charged
and too hard
and too large
to be five-starred.

There is a reality beyond the one we’ve chosen to read as gospel
and never is that truer than in your light.

I need to keep you in my life.
