    Moving forward using all my breath
    Making love to you was never second best
    I saw the world thrashing all around your face

    Lyrics
    The bells are tolling for me and my love
    Discreet horizon's fading, but fading from my trust
    All the walls are falling 'round my ears
    I can see the writing's on the wall
    Can't you tell me what's the use?

    Lyrics
    Life in the gladhouse is never dull
    Humdrum days still flying out the window
    It's wrought (wild) with overgrown people
    Broken engagements and twisted faith
    Growing up and then just growing older

    Lyrics
    The rhythm of the rain gives an off beat on the window pane
    Like an angel crying from the sky
    I can see its beauty
    After the snow
    I can see its beauty
